Struggling to make money? This post will help you...

18 replies
I go on the WarriorForum a lot and I see a bunch of the same posts from different people asking how to make a certain amount of money in X amount of time...or posts about how're they are struggling to make money online and want advice.

All this is good.

It's important to learn as much new material and training as one can. But, I feel like there's a piece that's even more important than all that.

A piece that all of the richest and wealthiest people in the world have mastered...

That piece is: Mindset.

Recently, I finished reading a book called "Think and Grow Rich" which talks about how to get your mind geared and tuned in for success.

It spoke a lot about having a clear goal in mind, a concrete plan to achieve that goal, and how to cultivate the confidence to obtain it.

And it really makes a lot of sense.

I believe that the difference between someone who is struggling to make money online, and someone like a "guru" who makes millions every year is their mindset.

This year has been my biggest year online not due to some new technique or method I learned but more due to the fact that I got my mindset right.

I laser-focused on my business.

I got organized and made a plan I had to follow every day to bring my business one step closer to where I wanted it to be.

I cut down on distractions. When I'm working my phone is nowhere near me. My social media is turned off (yes I'm looking at you Facebook).

And the most important thing I did was: I gained confidence in myself.

I used to be shy to tell my friends and family about what I did online. My online business was my little secret.

I never wanted to publicly say what I did. I never wanted to put my name and face out there to build my brand.

I didn't realize it at the time but I was subconsciously setting myself up for failure.

I wasn't attracting to myself the wealth I knew I was capable of bringing in because I was embarrassed.

I was afraid of success.

Once I fixed this...I started making more money.

Anyways, hoped that helped.

You probably know more than enough to make money online...You just need to master your mind first.

Thanks!

    Some points are very well written. The issue with online marketing is , this niche attracts all kinds of personalities. Some get attracted by the glittery money making statistics. but they do not realize there is hard work. focus , dedication , discipline and continuous value add. Unfortunately there are a lot of examples where only a good sales copy and a big list also helps people make money. Value creation and addition has fewer presence. On one hand it shows the huge demand but on other hand it also creates an environment of mistrust and creates demotivates people. So more and more real marketers who believe in hard work and bring in innovation to take internet marketing to new levels.

      Of course once you get your mindset down, the next step is to focus on how much value you can bring to the marketplace.

      You have to get people to know like and trust you before you can make real money.

    what ever your mind can perceive you can acheive.

    But I hate all that LAW OF ATTRACTION bullchit!

    You have to work your ass off, build a list, help your community, and you can earn more than a stock broker!!!

    Of course its hard work, and most people do not want to work hard, so they do not get the rewards.

    If you are getting it all wrong, read the 4 hour work week. Its crazy good, and help me take my business to the next level soon after finishing that.

    Sometimes its just that 1 little breakthrough you need to have your BIG ONE, and to have big results.

    But most people cannot see the trees through the forest. But I say, eff that!!! You need to take baby steps before you can walk.

      At the end of the day you're right, it all comes down to hard work.

      I hate that this niche makes it sound like making money online requires no effort. It brainwashes the new people who come in to think that they don't have to do any work to see results when that's far from the truth.

        yes! Its true, and I have even seen people burnt out with making their product, and they are so tired from it, they do not want to promote it, and I am talking about products that are multimillion dollar stuff.

        I think grant cardone has right, keep pressing, keep hustling. #HUSTLE

        if you keep doing that, you keep putting people into your businesses and funnels.

    Excellent post. Most people don't realize that the reason they continue to fail is because they sabotage themselves.

    And they sabotage themselves because they have the wrong mindset.

    Some people don't believe they are meant to be successful and that's causing them to make the wrong decisions via their subconscious.

    If they can change their subconscious...They will find that they will make better decisions and find more success.

    Stop with this "inspirational" BS to fish for thanks.

    Mindset doesn't pay the bills and put food on the table.

    Action does.

    Go do something. Even if you failed, you learned something.

    Action.

    I'm NOT a big fan of this LAW OF ATTRACTION Stuff, but I know that In order to be successful - one must possess something that is very valuable, something called... POSITIVE THINKING!

    I have read ''Think And Grow Rich'', It's a great book that teaches you how to THINK like Successful rich people...

    But If you want to read something that both talks about this LAW OF ATTRACTION BS and Internet Marketing, then you definitely need to read Anik Singal's New Book - The Circle of Profit... It's a great inspirational book that is full of Inspiration, Motivation and practical IM Advice.

    I agree, Mindset is a huge part of achieving success, not only for marketing but for everything you do.

    Always be dedicated to what you do and believe that it will happen.

    Being disciplined in something you are passionate about it the key.

      You gotta have that unwavering belief that you will be successful...no matter what.

    Great points, thank you Edwin!

    I believe that being successful all comes down to hard work and a positive mindset. You really do get out of what you do about the same as what you put in.

    Believing that you can achieve your goals, staying focused on your short term and long term goals and working hard at it will get you all the results you desire.

    Best of luck

    Straight to the point. It always begins, and ends in the mind if we really stop to think about. You say no in you r mind, no action taken. You say yes in your mind, action is taken. Mindset is number one. You get that on lockdown, and what you allow yourself to read, watch, listen, and engage with, your decisions will flow which flows to actions. Period.
