Do What Your Mentors Do!

15 replies
I thought I'd give my first piece of advice (since all I've been doing is asking questions!).

I know a lot of the time - I get to a point in my business, were I'm working super hard - putting in 18 hour days and actually loving it.

But then eventually, I get to a point where I don't know what to do and I don't have any good ideas - and I feel unmotivated, uninspired because I'm either doing the same boring thing day in, day out with no different results or I've just stopped working altogether (...but think I'm working because I'm in front of the computer monitor!).

Well, if any of you are in the same situation or have been before - I know a little trick you can use, so that it will never happen again :=)

- Go and look at what other people in your niche are doing (the big players).
- Go and look at what your mentors are doing.
- Go and look at what successful people are doing with their products, their website, their emails, their blog posts.

There is always something else you can do to progress.

Use what their doing as inspiration - and do what they do.

Maybe you could add an email optin form at the end of each of your blog posts. Maybe you could add more value to a current product. There are a million options to choose from.

Think outside the box and use your mentors as inspiration to provide more value to your customers and work harder.

    Hey man,

    Couldn't agree more! This is one of the best roads to success. In NLP this is called modelling. It means to find someone who is having the success that you want to have and literally model them.

    Model their actions and model their mindset... This is what helped me have my first success online back in 2010.

    Thanks mate for your post and have an awesome day.

    - Simon

    Lol, know that one!

    Just a tip, get more sleep than a few hours a night! Parts of your sleep deprived brain go offline even though your eyes are open.

    It also increases insulin resistance and high cortisol. Not a good spiral...

    Thanks for the positive comments guys :=)

    Plugin Profits, I normally work less then that (about 12 hours) - it's only when I have a deadline to meet, that I go for 18 hours to full days.

    Also I meditate 20 minutes a day to release that cortisol - which I highly recommend.

    Great advice. They might be teaching something different to what they are actually doing so best just to observe what is actually making them money as opposed to what they say is.

    They sell expensive mentorship and training.

    This is where most people get it wrong. They go and buy products and courses from other marketers instead of looking at how the marketer is actually selling them that product. That's how the marketer is making a lot of their money and that's what you should replicate if you want to replicate some of their success.

    A lot goes on behind the scenes man. You just can't get a email and copy and it works. They did a lot of work before you read that email from there list. they build t a personal re-pore with them. The products they use they sell to them are geared to them.

    You have to remember a good marketer doesn't kiss and tell all.

    Not bashing you but I would never try what someone else was doing unless I did exactly what they were doing and I wouldn't know it. I mean I don't show people my money sites, I don't give all info out to exactly how I do it. I leave things out, just the way it is. Protect your assets first and foremost.
