How Much Does Mindset Count?

68 replies
Hey Warriors,

I hope all is well with you.

If there's one thing I've come to discover online is making money online comes down to your mindset. You can have all the techniques in the world, but if you don't have the right mindset you won't be able to make any money.

Have you guys found this to be something that's true?

    well here is the challenge ..

    what are the elements of the proper mindset ..it is all well and good to use buzzwords .. but it does no good for anyone ..

    in your not so humble opinion .. if you believe the right mindset is key..you should at least explain the many parts of that mindset .

    success in anything require a proper mindset for that thing ..

    you can have a growth mindset and still not have the right mindset to use this internet thing to make money ..

    there is a way to succeed with the mindset or personality disposition you currently have .. so maybe instead of looking for the way to make the most money or a million doller a year business online ..when you have never even made a dime in any kind of business ..

    find a way to produce content online..with many of the skills you already have and identify skill you can learn that you will need ..

    so let me say this not so nicely and clearly on my not so humble opinion on what the proper mindset is to build something online that may make money at some point ..if you have no business skills and not much skill creating content .

    start creating a lot of real crappy content ..then make of content that is slightly better than crappy .. and move up the scale ..to semi decent .. and as you gain an audience start making content appealing to them ..and so on..

    so proper mindset for success online.. is to accept you might completely suck.. buck can probably get better over time

      Yeah it's about making progress day by day. You have to keep moving forward. A good book that's really helped me with my mindset is and book named "Mindset" Carol Dweck.

        Talking about progress and mindset, how are you getting along with your plan to make $1k a month within 90 days? You started a thread in Warrior Path (originally shooting for $30k) asking to be held accountable.

        Not putting you under pressure - just wanted to know if we can close that thread now.

          I'm telling you though the book is good. That was my thought at first, but after hearing that the Miami heat when LeBron and the team had that incredible winning streak going, when ask their secret they all referred to that book.

            well she had the jump writing that book.. as it was not a real big talking point untill after she wrote it .. then everyone started using the word.. mindset.. even if the divorced it from the discussion she had in the book ..about growth mindset verses static mind.. and i am reaching back a decade to remember this ..

            so growth mindset was relisting that if thing came harder or there was a struggle .. it just meant you had to work harder to lean and grow ..

            where as talented students ..many times ran into a static mindset ..and growth or struggle in grasping a subject .. meant they where hitting the limits of what they could learn ..

            again reaching back a decade to remember what i read

            although a growth oriented mindset is great when it comes to learning new things ..human work better with goals that they fundementaly believe they can achieve with enough work

            I don't subscribe to that theory.




            If people spent half as much time actually working onine as they do looking for motivation and quotes to get them 'going' online...they'd make more money. So often, the same people focused on dissecting 'motivation' and 'mindset' were doing the same thing last year, and the year before.


            Sometimes I wonder if motivation detours into procrastination.


            Nothing wrong with philosophizing, but I found years ago the best motivator for me was money earned through my own efforts...

    A mindset is like a blueprint. If the blueprint is good, you can build something amazing. If it's not, even with the best tools and materials in the world, everything will fail.

    For me, changing my mindset was crucial to getting what I wanted in life. And I believe there are 3 important mindsets.

    1. The mindset of a student. This mindset implies that you never know enough and there's always room to learn and improve. If you are not improving you are falling behind.

    2. The mindset of a winner. This mindset is simply believing that you can achieve anything you want with the proper amount of effort and knowledge, thus making you never give up.

    3. The mindset of honoring the difficulty. Obstacles aren't there to stop you, they are there to make you better. Honor them, learn from them and use them for growth.

    These 3 mindsets changed my life, not only financially.

  • Success in any sphere depends on a combination of factors -- not least that aliens fail to materialize an' nook the entire planet.

    For sure, a positive go-gettin' mindset sounds like a bonus, but it is not so great when allied to deloosional or psychopathic tendencies ... an' it is not too good at all if'n y'are intrinsically talentless or jus' plain crap.

    Then you gotta figure relevance.

    See, cos them Viking helmets you so skilfully construct an' put out there on your email list ain't so popular as back in the day when rapin' an' pillagin' was all the rage.

    Gotta figure for most people how they got an array of skills, circumstances, beliefs, cash, products ... whatevah.

    In sum areas, you gonna be stronger than the next guy; in other areas, you gonna be weaker.

    So I guess what counts is a galvanizin' attitood that takes the spectrum of plusses an' minuses on your team an' gears 'em up for max effectiveness.

    "To thine own self be troo" is a real wise quotation, but it is only one parta the wisdom story bcs plenty people can be trooly stoopid assholes.

    "To thine own self be known" kinda goes beyond a purely mindset-centric POV to pull in a whole buncha factors gotta be juggled smart as you can.

    This means bein' realistic about any limitations a purely PAH-ZITTIVE attitood might compel ya to ignore or gloss over.

    Literally yesterday it hit me harder than ever. You are so right. I've spent the day doing the inner work because I know that is where the most important work is.

    When you're mind is clear and focused, things come easier. 3 focused working hours is way more powerful than 1 full day working while distracted by people, foods, other websites, youtube, ect.

    If you want to spike your productivity, do a cleanse... CLEAN OUT your body... that will help clear out your mind. I guarantee you'll feel like you're on another level. Also exercise, keep your blood moving and not stagnant. Lastly (or first) meditate on your goals.

    Mindset is key. I believe it's 100% needed in order to succeed.

      A clean out is real. I did one just last week and I have been feeling a lot better overall. Sometimes you never know how much of an effect the food you are eating is having on your productivity.

        so you are acknowledging a major factor outside .. mindset . something that effects clarity of thought and mindset .. your physical condition and built up toxins inside the body which effect many things without your conscious control ..

        there are many ways to clean out the body without a hard cleanse.. drinking plenty of water while eating mineral rich food and engaging in physical activity on a daily basis they causes you to sweat most effectively to do early in the morning .. or a soft cleans with lots of fresh greens and water that has had real lemon soaking in it.. as well as some apple cider vinegar ..

    After a few day and a few cups of coffee this morning ..i want to add a new twist ..

    my current mindset .. is forged by my long term lifestyle ..or life objectives or even my objectives for 6 months or a year.. and it shifts based on the objective ..current and future.. and i stay away from short term objectives that may prevent me from obtaining my long term objectives .

    if making money online .. is not pivotal or required to achieve you're long term objectives.. or you are not really clear on your long term objectives .. or clear on why you want to make money online as opposed to the many other options that are now available ..

    you will probably not have the proper mindset to make money online ..

    It's impossible for it not to be true since the mind is the root of every action we make.

    What matters is being able to establish and more so, maintain a mindset which is perpetually productive.

    - a mindset that battles against the 'Devil' in us which summons us to procrastinate or finish the day early with a Whisky or twelve - consequently negating all potential to be optimally productive the following day.

    Reaching a goal is all about integrity of mind.

      this is a great statement ..now if it is true .. though.. what is so much of what we think about.. wondering why the f#$# we do many thing we do or take the actions we did .. and regretting thinking if we could go back we would do something different .

      We take many of our actions without thinking ..based on emotion and habbit and beliefs .. and then spend a huge amount of time and mental energy ..trying to explain our logical reasons for taking actions

    Instinctive actions are still a product of the mind, albeit not a the forefront of the consciousness.

    The condition of the subconscious mind moulds our instinctive actions.

    Integrity of mindset can fashion the subconscious mind and ensures, in some cases, that instictive actions don't occur without conscious thought.

    'Mindset' therefore, is always a factor which shapes the total paradigm.

    There will always be potential for negative outcomes. It simply means that the productive mindset has opportunity to be applied again, which in turn sets the optimal conditions which work in cohesion of achieving the goal.

      the reason diets fail over the long term most likely more than 99 percent of the time. ..is because people think they can use mindset and forced habit changes ..that ignore the survival instincts that well up when you put the human body into famine mode ..

      and the negative effects hunger has on a persons mindset ..

      now a huge percent of the time much of what 2 people will argue about is arguing about what they are arguing about verse a difference of opinion ..

      so my argument is based of our instincts ..you are arguing about habits ..

      and i will agree with you that a goal oriented /productive based mindset with effect the development of habits to support the mindset ..but for those habits to last .. one needs to be well aware of and steer through the midfield of instincts .. and not act like people can just not have them ..

    Habits are a precursor of mindset. The mindset dictates habits.

    Mindset is the root of everything. It is the source of perception and individual creation.

    If one is to get through any circumstance (such as hunger whilst dieting), then it begins with the mind and the state in which it is 'set'. It is the first cause.

    This will always be the case regardless of how the world may vend consequence and knock-on, manipulating effects.

    The source of our operation doesn't change just because the world challenges it.

    On the contrary, challenge is the very substance of how integrity of mindset is built.

      as someone who is hard to understand.. i humbly understand can you please explain what you just said ..

      it is very well written and looks very wise.. but it is something people can read for the next several thousand years and have no idea of what you are talking about .

      mindset is the rood of everything .. but habits are the precursor to mindset

      hunger is not a state of mind hunger is your body telling you you are starving and need to eat ..or you are not eating enough .. the same way pain and discomfort after you eat it telling you you ate to much .. and maybe should not do that to often .and stomach acid problems while you are trying to sleep .. is your body telling you you are eating way to close to bed time .

      but then there is the human arrogance that you can control all that with the right mindset..instead of eating regular meals and not to much at once and not to close to bed ..and getting 8 hours of sleep

      the mindset to look for strategies that work to achieve a goal.. rather than do something that is probably going to fail and make it harder to reach a goal ..

      is the mindset needed to make money online .. or succeed in any area of life .

      the more you try to mentally power through things that are most likely to fail.. with mindset.. or will power ,,the more the mindset accustomed to failure sets in .. an it becomes part of the identity ..trying to do the thing most people fail even if you fail over and over again .. and make things worse .

    Everything we do or feel begins with the mind.

    Whatever it senses, feels or harnesses is the minds 'set' - it's state, it's condition.

    Nothing we do or feel, is without the intervention of the mind.

    There is no circumvention of this fundamental, psychological fact.


    Mindset is absolutely everything pertaining to every moment of the individual human experience.

      which noted phd in psychology are you getting that from .. you keep insisting mindset is so pivital.. buy have yet to make any attempt to explain what it actually is .. and you use a line of argument .. people with any sense of reason and experience being human .. can easily see as false ..

      why is it the people who insts some element is crucial for success.. can never actually define that element and how to develope it.. they tend to sound like a starry eyed cult follower ..

      so i have had a basic question in this thread.. if mindset is so important tell me what it is and how someone can develop the proper mindset . so far .. all the responses have badly emulated mystical thinking and just make no sense ..

      Here is the mindset a person needs if they intend to derive income from online sources in the amounts that can support a lifestyle ..rent food clothing utilities.. or better ..

      The mindset of a professional ..meaning it doesn't matter if your motivated or inspired or feel like it ..no procrastinating or dealing with writers block ..you sit your but in a chair and do work..even if it start out feeling like crap you do work..and then as you work you get inspired motivated .. and whatever ..to do the work to the best of your ability ..

      block out a time to work ..every day.. and spend that time working ..like a professional .

    I'm not quite sure "not having the right mindset" will stop someone from making money but in my opinion it will definitely make it incredibly difficult and that's because trying to make money online or start some type of online business is not easy. With a wrong mindset you will most likely give up especially if things don't go your way.

    I knew of someone who decided to pursue internet marketing a few years ago and after 6 months started to make many thousands per month. After 12 months he quit (started to run into some problems, which didn't happen for him at the beginning). Now if you met him, he would tell you his heart wasn't in it but I believe it's because he had the wrong mindset - however, he still was able to make money online...

    I think if you have the right mindset you will always be able turn a bad situation into a good one and you will be way more likely to succeed when setbacks arise. No matter what obstacle comes your way, you will always see the glass half full as opposed to half empty and less likely to lose faith and give up.

    Yes mindset is very important.


    I think even more so today as it can often take a lot longer to make a profit than 15 years ago when there was still competition but not so much competition.


    Having the right mindset is vital to succeed!

    Mindset is not a synonym for mind. We all have an idea of what we mean by mind, but mindset can mean many things, depending on the context.

    It can relate to one's life philosophy or a particular worldview. It can describe a mental conditioning - especially an inflexible or indoctrinated one. And it can apply to an individual or be shared by a group.

    When mentioned in a business context (and given the OP's evident reluctance to define otherwise) it's usually simply another way of saying attitude. As such, Odahh's suggestion of cultivating a professional attitude is probably as good advice as any.

    You've touched upon a point that many understand 'mindset' as simple attitude. This case being an example. In that regard, I can comprehend why certain points have been raised on a mere surface level.

    That point I was trying to convey is that I don't regard 'mindset' as mere attitude or anything other than a synonym for 'paradigm' (or at least that's a product) - and that's exactly the concept that I'd push in consideration that attitude, as well as many other aspects, is often reflective of the deep root of a persons psyche.

    If the foundations aren't tended too, by donning an attitude like a temporary mask, it's just a matter of time before the figurative house fails.

    .

    It has been explained already and again above, together with elaboration of the perspective which you seemingly regard to be 'mindset'.


    I've expressed fundamentals (of what I regard 'mindset' to be), not dictations of PhDs - similar to common knowledge of spelling and grammar.

      I'm not attempting to proclaim the value of communication in written words..here i am trying to pull different viewpoints and ideas from people ..

      In away i will agree that psyche and mindset a close to the same thing ..and it is good i can finally mostly understand what you are trying to say even though you spelling everything correctly and using proper grammar ..

      now there are reasons to use the word mindset over psyche .. with modern thinking a fair number of people would think they could get the right psyche with proper medications ..even though it is close to as bad if people think they can get the right mindset through positive thinking motivation and whatever blahbalbh

      in any case a person can consciously reforge their psyche or mindset overtime by changing their habitat , their patterns of thought . taking into account their instincts and talents ..and working with them in order to get long term positive results ..

      is the mindset you have based in the way thing have been in the past or how they are now..or are you forging the person you want to be in the future ..

    Your perspective has been acknowledged in my post.

    Stimulus perceived through way of the mind is a given and it's that which can and does genuinely evoke reform. It is the mind which casts out the net and reels in its fish. Its gears turn its own cogs. Mind and its 'set' (paradigm) is the start and the end of worldly experience.


    Elaborating upon my perspective:



    In contrast, a mere 'attitude', with no such foundation is at distance from optimal. At best, we end up with 'Fake it until you make it' theory. A temporary act until the next interlude.

    People who take time to analyse and adjust every aspect of their experience will witness the dividends which amount to a 'mindset' which is an aspect which can't be taken lightly at a surface level, but taken no less than than everything, because that's the depth where everything about us is coming from.

    The problem being, through lack of knowing this principle, is that people try to launch ships in puddles.

    Daniel i think the problem for many people is not that they are faking it until they make.. it is they get in trouble faking it trying to convince many other people they are making it ..

    too many will ask the mason about how to make great bread.. and the artisan bread maker how to build the best wood fired oven .. oh hell they won't ask people for advice on how to do stuff who are even that close to knowing what they are doing ..

    I have had to radically change my mindset and psyche over the last few years .. the human mind is built to simulate experience in order to chose a course of action that should provide the best experience .. a majority of people simulate experience or spend large amounts of time observing others experience rather than ever ..putting themselves on a course of actually having the experience of a better life .


    so which minset to have.. the mindset of putting on a show for others viewing experience .. or the mindset of taking action to improve your own experience ..even if those actions for a long period of time look like failure or a big hole in the ground as you dig up the old foundation of your mindset and pour a new foundation to experience a life you want to experience

      That same ailment spawns throughout many generations of 'teacher' and receiver.

      The principle of having no foundation, remains the same, and above all, only amplifies in each instance...

        you can only really build a proper foundation when you have reached a point where you know what you want to build on that foundation .

        the majority of people .. are led to believe that the foundation that have at or by 25 is the foundation they are stuck with .. and what ever they have built by the mid forties is what they will have until they retire .

        it is painful but and very few people have real reason to do it.. but at any age someone can dig up much of the foundation.. and lay a new one based off the life they want ..they do not need to be stuck.. with what ever mindset .. or conditions they have..

        people who are trying to be what they are not will be exposed .. faster in today's world with the tech available.. than any other time in history ..

        so if you don't have the foundation or mindset ..to build the life you want start digging up the old one and pouring a new foundation ..

    The current mindset naturally has to have some sort of strength to identify and act upon itself. Again, mindset is first cause; the start and the end, thus it's first cause in making new things happen. This goes without saying.

    Whether people do make a stance to do that is another matter entirely and the core problem identified in the discussion herein. We can't demand, nor summon a perfect world, but we can identify its shortfalls.

    We wouldn't have problems you've mentioned yourself (namely the blind teaching the blind), and many others, if people did make a true move to reform...

    I don't agree that the mindset is first cause.. but if it works for you.. that is fine ..you get a different mindset in population of people in tropical countries that have sources of food available all years ..verse where people have to store food and protect that food for the winter..or use that food as money ..

    so in order to change the mindset or forge a new one you have to know what factors mostly what survival factors when into forging the mindset you have ..

    the main thing i draw from observing that people seek advice from others who probably cannot give the advice people want.. is to guard against myself doing it ..and attempt to be aware of where people are getting the advice they are trying to give me ..

    i also look to see if i am getting similar advice from many qualified persons . humans will be humans so we will pretty much always have these problems ..in one form or another..

    I am not afraid of someone who knows more than i do telling me i am wrong.. as long as they are willing to tell me correct information..

    on the other hand the people who can't do it and have no clue trying to prevent me from doing something.. or tell me every thing they think is wrong.. like people 100 pounds heavier than me telling my what i should or shouldn't eat ..

    they get not so nice feedback on their advice

              I suspected in light of your declared bizzare venture of research, that you'd conclude with a theological understanding, rather than a self explanatory psychological one which reflects the context.

              With that expectation fulfilled, you at least raised a smile as someone who was created in the image of God.

                  To clarify for you; religion is not present. That is but the entertaining folly you deduced from your study.

                  A 'first-cause' is an initial source which prompts a reaction and reflectively sets a circumstance.

                  Thus, again; in context, the mind is the first-cause of human reaction.

                      No definition is 'outside mind'.

                      If your mind is unable to wrap itself around the term in context, simply disregard it.

                      The mind still remains the initial point.

                          Your mind is the initial point of you perceiving those things.

                                  Establishing the fact that the mind is the first point of perception, is unrelated to God.

                                  It's crucial that the ego doesn't lead its way into lands unknown or elect excuses and blame outside of itself, particualrly upon aspects which are irrelevant.

                                  Red herrings are fish frequently sported to opt out of discussion.

                                  We are our minds and it's that which is all that we are.

                                  Have a good evening, nonetheless.

          profits matter a lot more than mindset ..and i think the favoritism goes more to those who have and those who take what they started with and turn it into more or much more..

          then use their excess to help those with much less ..

    Yes, it's very important -indirectly. Action is what leads to results. But mindset plays a big role in determining which actions you take (or don't take.) When I had a negative mindset, I was always half-hearted in my actions, as I didn't believe they would lead anywhere. Now I have a better mindset, I expect good things to happen (as long as I put in the work) and so taking action is much easier.

    I remember when my overall thinking was flawed and that led to bad decisions in my life. I don't want to be the bearer of bad news but limited thinking can... well, it can limit you beyond any shadow of doubt. You have superb abilities if you know how to push yourself forward. Or else... the roof is on fire! I don't have to deal with pathetic excuses, oh no, that's not me in there.



    Ever since I programmed the mind I could slowly but surely see results. Rock solid stuff. Like realizing that winning is a habit and couple that with faith in a higher cause. In fact, it feels as if you're driven by an energy field that belongs on a totally different level.

    Nice : ) I think that's a valid point. And yeah, without the right Mindsets I think success would become much more difficult. One of my favourites is believing that success is possible. In fact the affirmation is: "I'm going to do whatever it takes." And "If it's possible ― I'll accomplish it."

    There are several more however.

    You have some communication skills right?
    It's not enough to be positive because your counterpart must be positive too to make a deal.
    You Positive + Counterpart Positive = DEAL
    You Positive + Counterpart Negative = No Deal
    You negative + Counterpart Negative = No Deal
    You negative + Counterpart Positive = No Deal
    One must be positive and make the one he deals with positive too as much he can to break the spell of negativeness.. (^-^")
    SMILE is the solution !!
