But one problem that I find Newbies have is getting too wrapped up in this Romanticism of the 'Dream '. All the enthusiasm and the initial novelty and the adrenaline that is present well it will wear off. But too much of it can have long term adverse effects.l
There is one technique I use that is efficient and productive in addressing this.
Here is a scenario. You go to Warrior Forum and you get involved in a Thread that talks about making 10K a month by working 30 hours a week. You see this guy who does it and you start getting excited and start talking to your friends and family how you are going to do it.
At this time, the World seems incredibly exciting as you have your Plan and your 'yucking' it up'
and cannot wait to get your Dream a rolling
...then, oh no, you actually have to turn on your Computer and start doing WORK. And many times it can be extremely boring and tedious WORK. Sometimes it seems like so many problems occur during the midst of going for your 'Dream ' , you just want to give up.
You ask yourself, " where is all the excitement I had when I first found about this idea" ?
Well, the fact is EVERYONE who is successful goes thru these doldrums.
The best way I found to combat this is to close your eyes for a second and actually Visualize (when you are in the doldrums) of what it will be like when you are 'yucking' it up with your family and friends of how you ARE making that 10K and how Life is so exciting after putting in the sweat
Just picture yourself doing that periodically when you feel the tedious part of the job getting you down.
For me at least, when I practice these mental exercises it gives me the motivation and momentum to push forward and get done what I need to finish .
Many times , I will pick out a Happy occasion in my Life. Example , like when I go back home to my native Tennessee for Summer break and we start talking to visiting with my Aunts and Uncles .. Well, they are successful in business including Real Estate so I always look forward in telling them of my own Successes.
When Iam working , I will actually pause for a second and Visualize these positive conversations I'm having with them.
So pick a happy place for you and do this . It can help
