How To Make Money Online - The Correct Mindset

30 replies
Hi guys,

I would like to share with you some thoughts about this topic, maybe this applies more for newcomers, but every person looking for more knowledge will find it helpful.

The Correct Mindset

What is the correct mindset? When one starts in this business, will most probably have some thoughts about HOW this business works, probably because they read on the internet, or were influenced by someone else…

But, what is the usual Mindset of the newcomer?
Statistics say that 70% of newcomers come into this business with the following idea: “Making Money Online is EASY, just spending some time everyday and I will have a serious income stream”…
Or… “How to be RICH from one day to another, let’s make money online!”…

I am afraid that both thoughts are not true, the Idea that Making Money Online is THAT easy, it’s just untrue.
That doesn’t mean it is hard, of course not, but there are some things involved in this process, that a newcomer must understand BEFORE taking action in this business.

How can you make money online if you don’t understand how things work? Well, that is the first part of the process that they must understand, right away, and are as follows:


- Learning Process: In order to be successful in this place, wherever the niche you choose, you MUST learn certain things first. The Learning Process is necessary to understand the business, to be aware of the possibilities , it’s a path that we all have to take and it has no dead-end, because we will ALWAYS have to learn something new that we need to understand before applying into our business.

- Understanding Process: This comes right after the Learning Process, It has no use to study things if we don’t understand them, it is just a waste of our time. So while we study and learn new things to apply into our business, we must understand exactly what we are doing.

- Implementation Process: After we understand everything we are going to need in our business, now it is time to TAKE ACTION. It is time to use our newly learned skills and apply them.

A good friend of mine told me once, when I was a beginner, a saying that just stuck into my brain and changes my way of doing things, specially for this business: “Ready, FIRE!, Aim”…
A common mistake that we all make, even people with experience, is that we want to make all things work perfectly, we make a website and we invest lots and lots of time on the look & feel, the images, the banners.

Of course if we are launching a website we must work on it and provide good content, but it is REALLY NOT NECESSARY to leave it perfect. When it is ready to be launched, just do it! And THEN after we are getting traffic into it, we can work on the little issues that we left behind.

Note please that this is really important, because all that time we invest in the webpage BEFORE we launch it, is time that a possible customer will need to visit your website. And if we don’t focus on our traffic, our business simply won’t work.

Also it is possible that we get tired of making changes on the website, and suddenly we decide that we don’t want to do it anymore, we just got tired of making every aspect of it work like a charm, and leave behind a potential business.

Believe me when I say this, it is FAR MORE gratifying when you see traffic coming to your website, than the perfect style you might want to put into it. And it is even more gratifying when a customer buys you a product!

So, all these being said, I hope you understand the POWER of the education! A correct Mindset will help you to succeed wherever you want to go, just spend the necessary amount of effort learning everything first, understand them , and then Implement it, Take Action!

I hope guys you get the idea of this, I am sure this will help newcomers to have a starting point, and do things right to succeed in this business.
Regards!

      I can tell you now that one of the most common characteristics of people who have succeeded online is having the right mindset and consistency. They are the ones who have consistently worked on the same thing over a long period of time. They didn't jump from project to project. They just kept working on the same project with the faith that it would work for them.

      This is one of the biggest tips I can give you. Write it on your brain like a tattoo.

    For me this is the key right here.
    If you take massive action each and every day, I would say it is virtually impossible to get a year down the road and not have achieved major changes!

    Egads! "Take Action" in red and all-caps!? That's got to be the most annoyingly over-used phrase in all of internet marketing.

    I think the biggest problem for newcomers is that they "take action" too quickly and end up working some sisyphean task given to them by the kind of unscrupulous marketer who makes slick videos in front of swimming pools and mansions. When the newbies realize that this is never going to pay off, they begin to grow naturally suspicious of any system that doesn't pay off early.

    Internet Marketers who target newbies are always shouting, "Take Action", which basically translates into, "He who hesitates is lost." This is only good advice for the lucky. The rest should look before they leap; there are plenty of people on clickbank selling fool's gold and we all know it.

      I am still learning about IM and so many times I have read how important it is to have the right mindset before starting out.

      After making mistakes with a business in the offline world I now appreciate how important preparation and research is before starting a new venture.

      Having the correct mindset is the first step in your preparation to succeeding in the online world.

    Well I read some replies and I must say that agree to what you say. But the intention of this post is that no matter how beginner you could be, the best way to learn is making mistakes, and learn from them. And Taking Action is part of making mistakes in the process we implement our business online. No one in this world started knowing everything, even the riches started from scratch and had to bypass lots of obstacles first before they started to understand things correctly.
    Its all about maturing our mind, that takes time, and we only can succeed if we indeed take action into our business and do things!

    There should no be actions done while you are still in a doubt about a couple of things about your business. Planning and having the right mindset is the key. We might fail but don't let failures get into your mind. Charge failures to experience, move on and think big!

      one more useful post on motivating yourself. There are thousands of advice and opinion on this topic as it stands out to be your first step before starting any business or work.

      avoid these: "let's see if it works", too many plans with not much work, "I will do it tomorrow", "what if it doesn't work?"

      Everything has a process and a way of doing it. If don't know it don't be upset or let down. Just learn it and do it. That's how everyone else did.

    The only thing that i'd add is: Do not Despair, if you are sure that you understood it, then it should work, if it didn't, track your steps, enhance and do it again and again until the job is done

    Super post

    While it might not be advisable to make sure that your website is perfect before you launch it, I don't agree with the 'Ready... FIRE... Aim' strategy. It is not necessary to make things perfect before launching your website, but quotes like that are very misleading. You can work on your website even after it has been launched; that's okay, but you should at least have a systematic plan behind you. Too many newbies fail because they jump in when they should have taken it slowly

    Thanks for the post I'm not fussed about perfection as it will be adjusted along the way. Did you know when they send a rocket to the moon it is only on target less than 5% of the time? The rest of the time they are doing "course correction"

    Patience is the enemy of most internet marketers, and taking some action is better than doing nothing but learning about it.

    I think it is important to take a good look at the top earners in the industry and to model what they are doing. And it also helps if you have a qualified mentor that can give you a bit of one on one advice and guidance.

    But like most of the posts above suggest, you have to have a sound plan or strategy and stay focused on what you are trying to achieve.

    Most newcomers will take action too quickly, and from what I've seen they go two ways from here. They either fail and leave the whole IM game and hate it with a passion, OR they learn from it, and then set off on their more educated path online.

    I was one of those who took action too soon, and it took me a while to recover, I worked a few normal jobs in-between bits and bobs I was researching online, then the second time I "took action", things were much better for me, because I had learnt a few mistakes the first time around, sure I still made mistakes and still do, but I learn from them, and correct myself, now I personally welcome mistakes (not so much that they ruin me of course lol!) so that I can add to my knowledge of what works and what doesn't. This mindset and thought process allows me to progress and defeat fear with the power of knowledge, rather than scurrying away at every error.

      Here's what I can say...

      Mindset for me has alot to do with your self-image and your perception of things.

      Think about it...

      If you have a very poor self-image, you could spend time learning ALL the IM material that is out there (perfect recipe for information overload and paralysis of analysis), and end up more throwing in the towel because it is "too hard" or "too complicated".

      Let me put it in another way. It's like having a driver's license and driving a car.

      I know people who have passed their driver's license test, but are too scared to drive. They lack the confidence they need to get on the highway and just drive!

      I know of others who don't have a driver's license, but who are confident enough to drive under the worst circumstances.

      Of course, I am not condoning driving without a driver's license, but I think you get my point.

      Having the right mindset about who you are, what your true value is, your purpose and passion is what will give you the confidence to face and overcome your Internet Marketing challenges.

      Otherwise, you will end up being a prey to all, and you will repel people and opportunities...because you are not READY for success in your mind.

      Just my thoughts...

    yes, I agree! The "ready, fire, aim" sequence is a great idea, and particularly good for IM, where it's often easy to change things continually as you go along.

    I'd add that I find the synergy from testing a bunch of different methods, is a way of moving ahead quicker than sticking to one method at a time, especially in IM, where many of the methods one might come accross, are not real methods, but one can still learn a few things from each one and build up knowledge and experience and put it all together!

    I think it is the fear of failure rather than preparing for success that stops people from taking the plunge initially. A combination of being in the 'right frame of mind' and motivation to acutually make progress (which does not necessarily mean making money at the start) shows that you are determined to succeed.

    Some marketers dream about the riches but never take any of the WSO's they buy and run with them. They stall a collection of WSO's in their inbox hoping they will pull one out. Trust me, I've been there. You need to work on something, make a plan, set a goal and find out why that particular project is not making money. It might mean you have to go back to the drawing board, but do not give up. Unless, its just the dream you want.

    This is where it all starts – Mindset. Success has something to do with the way you think and the way you look at your plans in entering internet marketing. Making online money is not an easy thing and it is not even an overnight success. A lot of people claim that they make $1,000 to $3,000 in just one day and even if they have just started making money online.

    There is no such thing as easy money that comes in clean. You need to make sure that you have the right frame of mind and having the right frame of mind means that you need to learn, understand and the most important of all, implement. I know a lot of people that are into online marketing but they fail.

    The correct mindset will help you grow your business and come up with plans on how to correct the imperfections in your website. It is how we think and what we think that will bring us to success.

    I truly believe that EVERYBODY has the ability to make money online.

    Most just can't put up with the workload and the feeling of being a failure long enough to stick this out.

    But you wont find someone who has been in IM for 5 years making no money. Remember that.

    Action is great provided it has a point of focus, I chased my tail and several bright shiny things for longer than I care to admit. I am very suspicious as a result but I know that good research, focus, determination and regular goal setting have moved me forward in leaps & bounds I haven't made any cash yet but I'm clear on where I'm going and I have sourced some great teachers now.

    Having a teacher is imperative or a proven blueprint you can implement. Stay away from the sexy sales pages with the exotic cars &, mansions & pools they definitely target the newcomers.

    This is the most important part, do not get stuck with the paralysis of analysis!!

    Too many people read too much befroe taking action. Sure research but then just get stuck in to a method you like and test test test. You will learn so much more than by reading. You should always read and get a good understanding but then as soon as you do, get on with it!!
