I was thinking about some things for a book I'm writing and one of them really hit home as something that you guys might also want to consider.
In the video industry there's a techy thing called lipsync which you'll have experienced as a viewer when it gets out of wack - i.e the classic kung fu master mouth moving and words coming out later.
While I was thinking about this it was part of an analogy I was considering for when peoples words are not in-line with their actions.
In psycho-speak this body language stuff is called congruence - having all of your systems saying the same thing in harmony.
Well, as IMers most people tend to have very grand ideas about how they see their future and the things they want in it.
So, consider this:
Are you walking your talk?
Are you actually doing the things which you say are important to you?
Are you really going that extra mile for your business?
Are you telling others and yourself that you're an Internet Marketer - but actually behaving like someone who is just dabbling, or not taking it seriously?
Many warriors post here about the reasons that IMers often fail to get started, and usually there's one thing that comes up - not taking focused action.
So, check your schedule and see whether you're really walking your talk. Are you spending the time you know you should on your business or do other things seem to keep getting in the way, does that TV call to you when you know you should be working?
I think we all have stages where we're not being as effective as we can, so I think occasionally doing a lipsync check might be a great thing for us.
