Your wife and your family keep telling you to give up on your "little dream" and come back to reality, but deep down inside you refuse to admit defeat although all signs point to it.
You feel the frustration of knowing that it can work, you see other people just like you posting their success stories and you're trying to figure out what you're doing wrong.
Believe me, I know the feeling.
I've spent years going through forums, jumping from product to product with the constant feeling that the next thing one will take me to internet marketing success. As you may have experienced it never ends ups that way.
After years of failing, I've realize that making money online is less about the techniques and more about the fundamentals and mindset.
What I want to share with you are some principles that I've learned in my online journey and how you can use them to get closer to your goals.
Online Business Success Begins With A "WHY"
What drives you? Why do you want to start an online business or make money online?
You need to figure this out.
Too often I see people come online seeing the lifestyles of some people who "claim" to make money online "easily" and then think that they'll be able to push a few buttons and see success.
This is a marketing tactic that appeals to the nature of us as humans. We all hate to be uncomfortable and making money online requires us to be uncomfortable.
It's a fact and the faster you learn this the easier it will be for you in the long run. This is why you need to know your "why". Having a deeper reason for being successful will push you when you feel like giving up.
When you feel like quitting it's your "why" that will keep you pushing. Right now I want you to think about why you want to do this. On the surface it could be to have more money, but I want you to dig deeper than that. Think about your family, think about the country you live in, think about how you could make the world a better place.
We all want success now and the moment we try a new method and it does not work we drop it, claim that it does not work and look for a new one to repeat the process.
The problem is not the method (though sometimes they are junk) the problem is you and your need for instant gratification. We live in a society that promotes it.
We have instant messengers and social media that sends dopamine rushing through us every time we get a new message
So in a sense it is not entirely our fault, but it can be corrected. To correct this you must understand that overnight success and push button riches do not exist.
You will have to work hard! You will have to get up everyday and chase your dreams relentlessly. A quitter will never make a good business person online. A quitter will never taste online success.
It's the persistent ones that keep banging on the door who'll make it. So keep banging until you break the door down.
Develop A Winning Mindset
For me there is no such thing as failure. I view everything I do online as a part of the learning process. Every time you fail you are getting closer to understanding what works and what doesn't.
When something does not work the first time it that you need to try a different way. An obstacle is just an opportunity to find a better way.
Winners never see a problem they see opportunity. It's about the way you see your problems. You can decide today to see every thing as a part of the process. Destroy your weak mindset and keep pushing even when things don't go as planned.
This is where most people fall apart. The planning and learning process is easy and most of you don't have a problem there. It's easy to read that new book and develop a plan the problem is taking action.
It goes back to my point above. Many of you are afraid that you will fail, but if you decide that it's not failure by developing a winning mindset you will take action.
Sitting down and planning too much makes it hard for you to take action. Stop thinking and start doing!
No amount of planning will make money online. Take the plan that you have in front of you and execute.Executing the plan is where success begins.
Keep pushing forward and let nothing stop you from getting to your goals.
Focus less on the outcome and become immersed in the process. The process takes you to success. Smaller steps are better and take you closer to your goal than no steps at all.
There are many ways to make money online and I know you're frustrated. I was for years until I developed the resilient mindset and figured out how to keep pushing to my goals.
You have to have a deep reason for why you are doing this or you'll never make it. Building an online business is about 4 things:
- A Good Offer
- Targeted Traffic
Right now I want you to sit down and think about why you want to make it. When you've made your decision I to push your comfort zone every single day. The more you push it the stronger you'll become.
Remember success awaits you outside comfort zone so push your limits, understand that failure helps you to learn and being consistent makes you a success.
