15 Years Of Frustrations, Struggling And Depressions

24 replies
Hi Warriors,

my name is Allen Martin and I just wanted to share my story with you guys.

The reason why I came up with this idea is, I saw so many people who struggled less time than me and they seem to be hopeless.

The purpose of this thread is to give hope, to show you that there is ALWAYS a way, no matter how long you're struggling, independent of your environment and circumstances.

Let's get started...

I am in this IM Industry since 19 years now and right now I am 35 years old. Meaning, I started out when I was 16. You can TRUST me, I saw everything. Every method has been shared at least once or twice...so that's something you need to be aware of...

MISTAKE #1:
Too many people try to reinvent the wheel - stick with the methods, systems or programs that work - and forget about creating something unique - something which has never been shared before.

I felt so distracted and overwhelmed...every single day. I mean, I saw so many people who made a killing online, who went full time from home, who could live the life I've always dreamed of...maybe people with less knowledge than me, but they did something different to me. But I couldn't figure out the missing component which was left to succeed...

So I continued what every "Not Successful Marketer" does...I was looking for methods and systems that can bring me the lifestyle and the money I've always dreamed of...

Programs and methods that will make me rich...That was my biggest problem...I was always looking for a shortcut to succeed. And the funny thing is, the more methods I found (even if the worked out for me or not), the more methods I wanted to find...

It was a circle...a never ending circle...

MISTAKE #2:
Here is what I found...instead of finding a shortcut, you need to change your MINDSET. That's responsible for at least 80% of your success online. Why is that? Simple...

In this life, either if you wanna succeed online, offline, in relationships, in sport, whatever it is, you ALWAYS have to go the extra mile.

That doesn't mean, that you have to work HARD or 24hrs per day...NO!

Instead you should start learning on how you can become more effective and efficient when it comes to this business.

And the best way to do this is by studying other successful marketers like Eben Pagan, Frank Kern, Ryan Deiss, Andre Chaperon...there are too many...

But you have to study on a daily basis...otherwise you won't become a better marketer.

Let's get back to my 15 years of struggling, frustrations and depressions...

I can tell you, these 15 years were more than hard to me because I was also 8 years on welfare...so NO FUN at all.

That meant to me, only a few dollars per month I could invest in my business but not only that, it also hurts your self esteem a lot...the same goes with me...

Like I said before, it was like a circle...the more methods I was looking for and none of them worked out to me, and the more products I've purchased, the more I lost my self esteem, the more I became frustrated, overwhelmed and confused.

MISTAKE #3:
This is by far the biggest mistake ALL NEWBIES make...

If you wanna become successful online, you need to STOP PURCHASING cheap products...The point is, do you really expect to find a method that pulls in a few thousand dollars into your bank account from a cheap product?

The Answer is NO! It's not possible...

You need to change your mindset - cheap products are not the way to go if you want to make it happen online - STOP PURCHASING them. Of course, some of them provide some pretty cool informations, but there is always at least 1 missing component that won't make it work for you...

When you want to become successful online, you NEED to find an established mentor who guides you along the way, who know where you are right now, where you struggle - in nutshell, someone who had been there where you are right now.

Someone who knows exactly on how to overcome failure, frustrations and the feeling to be overwhelmed, confused and distracted.

The worst of all was, that I piled up a load of debts - worth $25,000...so it wasn't fun at all...

Anyway I was willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen online!

No matter what it would take, I was so determined, fully committed and serious to find a way...

And this is exactly the same mindset you need to copy...

In order to crush it online, offline - whatever your business is, you need a Mentor AND you need to stop buying these Cheap "Shortcut" Products.

MISTAKE #4:
If you fail to transform this mistake into a success, than you won't make it ever online or offline. What I am talking about? Simple...

You need to become FULLY COMMITTED, no matter what it takes, no matter how long it will take...

You need to become a Fully Committed Action Taker who is not interested to be entertained in these Sales letters, not interested in buying cheap products, but someone who is Fully Committed to do what it takes to make it!

Someone who becomes resourceful and NOT good in finding excuses why you can't make it (i.e. no money, no time, not the right skills, the wrong environment, the wrong parents...)

Whatever it is, WAKE UP - if you don't have the money to pay a mentor - FIND ONE!
If you don't have the time - FIND A WAY!
If you don't have the right environment - WORK ON YOUR MINDSET!

Instead of focusing on excuses - FOCUS on Solutions how you can make it!

And this was exactly what I did...I mean, I was $25,000 in debts AND on welfare...

Now pay close attention...

One day, I was lucky to come up with the exact perception I've mentioned above...that I need a mentor...And I was lucky enough to find him after searching a while...

His name was Thomas and he made over $64k per month on the internet and he showed me a fail proven way to succeed - and I applied what he taught me.

But before I close this thread, let me take something out of the way first:

I knew that I need his help, but at this time I had $0 to invest. But I found a way because I wanted to succeed online so bad - that I became resourceful. I borrowed money from my parents, some friends and from the bank - and it was the best decision I've ever made!

Over the days and years of being frustrated, depressed, overwhelmed and clueless...

And this is something you can do too...listen, if I (not a native english speaker) can do, guess what - EVERYONE CAN!!!!!

>>>> Now, Find A Mentor, Become Fully Committed, Become Resourceful & Take Massive Action, Consistent And Steady And I Can Guarantee You, You Will SUCCEED!!!!

      Thanks...most people misunderstood on how they can succeed...what I mean by that is, that you need to work on your mindset...that's the key!

    I was more of the same until I implemented radical changes in regards to my perceptibility. My whole shift changed once I gravitated to a new philosophy that pertains to the dynamics of the mind and what it can achieve once put into use.

      I totally agree with you! Mindset is and will always be key to succeed whether online or offline...in all areas of your life.

      Thank you. But it's not that hard work as the majority of the people think it is...to be honest, it's way less work than you think...you need to work smart - not hard

    Excellent post Allen.

    You've outlined exactly why 95% of newbies fail to ever
    make a penny online.

    MINDSET is where it's at.

    Don't worry about creating something 100% unique and
    different... not going to happen.

    It's ALL been done, said and sold thousands of times.

    Just put your own twist on it, be consistent each day and you'll
    be successful.

    Chat soon,

    ~~ Gary

    A truly inspirational post Allen, I'm so glad it worked out well for you.

    The reasoning behind this post was actually the same reason I set up my new blog, Kaizen Creative. I saw so many sites out there teaching different methods and strategies to earn money online but none of them focused on the foundations of becoming successful. It was all just tactics.

    That's why on my new site I recommend a couple of methods to earn online that work (as most of them do) but then I focus on the foundations. Things like becoming more productive, motivated, confident, learning to network and build relationships etc

    I believe that is the true way to becoming successful online. Employing and sticking with a strategy that is proven to work and developing a successful personality/mindset.

    That's just my 2 cents.

    Again, thanks for sharing that awesome post!

    Cheers, Zach.

      Here is what I found...

      If you wanna become successful online, you NEED to focus on your personal development. Because it's responsible for your self-perception. Study Mindset stuff, Study Marketing stuff and I can guarantee you, if you combine these 2 things with having a mentor by your side, you will finally succeed!

      So in nutshell...I agree with you Zach

        I couldn't agree more in that self-perception has a massive impact on you and your business, especially when you're the head of your business. How you think about yourself determines how you and others feel about you. If you don't believe you will succeed you probably won't.

        I actually just wrote a mini post about it here that you can check out.

        Let me know what you think.

    Great post! I like the part about not buying anymore cheap products. Those cheap products can really add up dollars use after a while and over a year or so could be enough to buy some pretty high end quality coaching which would have ended up creating a huge income instead of huge credit card bills. Thanks! Doug
