Have you ever felt like life is just robbing from you?

You're the nice guy who is doing everything right and for some reason nothing seems to be going your way. You're the nice businessman treating everybody good. Doing all the nice things and for some reason you keep getting run over.

I'll tell you this right now. If you're trying to be the nice businessman you won't last too long in the world of business. Now stay with me I'm not telling you to go ahead now and be a mean person. I mean you have to be aggressive.

You have to be aggressive with sales. You have to be aggressive when acquiring new clients for your business. You have to go out and make it it happen.

You see this business thing is simple. There are only two things you need.

1. Traffic
2. Conversions


When you have these two things you have a business. Now of course you have to ensure you're doing this in a way that's profitable.

But we're not here to discuss those two we're here to talk about the one thing that's holding you back.

Your Mindset

Success boils down to what's going on in your mind.

Aggression is necessary when building a business. To get clients you have to be aggressive.

You have to kick the comfort zone fence DOWN!

Kick The Comfort Zone In

Push pass your comfort. Kick that sucker IN! Your mind loves the comfort zone. Forget that.

Push pass the comfort zone. Push past the feeling of wanting things to be easy and love the hardness of life.

The hard things make you HARD!

Get hard and make more money. Stop making excuses and push yourself. Squeeze every ounce out of everyday.

Stop wanting to ease through life. Easy is sickening. Stop complaining. Stop wanting people to help you and go out and DO!

Love The Hard

Fall in love with hard work. Fall in love with the process. Fall in love with it not being easy and keep pushing.

When you're mind says stop tell it to SHUT UP and keep pushing. Stop letting your mind stop you from greatness.

You have the product you want to sell, well create it and put it out into the world.

What if it doesn't make any sales?

Well you tried and that's all that matters.

Conclusion

Get up and try and don't start tomorrow start right now. After reading this post go out and take action on that big scary goal.

Yeah you know the one you've been running from for months. Take action on it right now.

Do it right now.

Whatever the first step is I want you to take it right now.

Take it.

Go ahead I DARE YOU!

Go hard or GO HOME!

I believe in you.

    I agree! As Steve Maraboli said "Once your mindset changes, everything on the outside will change along with it."

    Always believe in yourself

    Aggression isn't the "key" to anything. It's far more likely to result in failure and misery. In any case, nobody can force themselves to be aggressive for any sustainable time.

    If you can't get enthusiastic about your business, find something else to do.

    Agreed, l have got aggressive enough to keep going without being physically sick, so it may play a part but overall it is better to try to stay calm and do everything humanly possible to keep your head above water.

  • Thing I love so 'bout bein' a generous kinda mortal is how I don't see why life gotta rob me of nuthin'.

    See, cos if'n I get run down in the mall tamara by rampagin' bullocks, prolly the planet gonna keep gowin' jus' the same.

    Yanno, bcs it is not like them BALESTRA LIFE STEALERS gonna suddenly find 'emselves sittin' around, twiddlin' their thumbs.

    Blame culchah gone frickin' wappo imho.

    If'n you paranoid 'bout all the schemers, likely all you dowin' is manifestin' your own spirityool vacuumhole as an imaginary nemesis with fully tangible destructive powah.

    (Gotta figure Max von Sydow nevah actshwlly said nuthin' like that in The Exorcist, which is why prolly why he made 90yo tyvm.)

    There are aggressive sales people that do very well. There are passive sales people that do very well.

    Evolution selected for variety just as much as anything else.

    How many millions of flowers are there that thrive?

    Variety must be an important part of life. And environment plays a role. And who you interact with plays a role.

    Go be aggressive with a very passive person with money -- you ain't making that sale. Or if you do -- they are going to feel steamrolled.

    It's better to be flexible based on who you interact with.

      True, but in my state, with shelves constantly cleaned out of toilet paper, and the poor and sick, being stepped on by withholding their payments for months on end it is getting ugly.

      Or an example of that is today, with a Cancer charity or two salespeople trying to get passerby's interested.

      I heard one lady they tried to get her attention of, by singing or whatever, told them, to f.... off, (l just heard that) with him saying "we are only asking".

      My state is getting ugly due to stupidity and greed, and as for the stock market, well, that is an opportunity.

      You might be surprised how many "snowflakes" own multi-million $$$ businesses. The better your strategy is? The less "make it happen" you have to be. A business that has systems that create $$$ as a byproduct --

      You can be a real person and have a bad day and not be all "make it happen" and the money still shows up. The system makes it happen. Not you.

      What the OP is describing is hustling for your daily bread.

      If the OP had mentioned systems for converting traffic into $$$ that are repeatable and scale ... and work no matter what your energy or mood is ...

      Now we're starting to talk business. And that's when you can actually have an asset that can be sold for a reasonable multiple.

      (There's a reason why daily, weekly, and monthly $$$ totals sell so well in the make monies online space. Very few people think past the hustle)

        Actually, the OP is simply rehashing a bunch of trite, "motivational" slogans of the kind that's all too typical of posts in this section. We focused on the word "aggression" because it was used in the thread title.

        And because, you know, it was obviously wrong.

    pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.

    In 'motivational' threads like this I notice for some people - the "focus on motivation" and the "mindset issue" IS THE 'comfort zone'.

      There is no real meaning to a lot of motivational catchphrases .no one who claims you need the right mindset .will explain in any detail what that is .

      As for the comfort zone stuff i expand my comfort zone and seek higher levels of comfort. I get out of my comfort zone to far I end up with nasty anxiety attacks .

      I definitely agree with you. Motivation wears out while a solid mindset creates a habit that in the long run, will definitely contribute to your success.

      However, I like what OP just did. Sometimes we need a little push when things are hard.

    oppyeaunome:

    I think your post could be appealing to the younger Guys ... However personally I would rather take the relaxed/gentle/positive/happy approach to Business and to Life.

    A certain amount of "aggression" can be a good thing (if People are lacking it) ... Too much ― and trying to force it too much ― probably won't work. Like Frank said, it is likely to result in "failure".
    Rather than the term "aggression" I would use: "Determined", "strong-willed", and "resolute." (Just what works for me.)

    2C
    Good Luck.

    Interesting point Kay.

    For a Person to succeed in Business (etc.) they will have to step out of their "comfort zone". (And that's a good thing.) For me, many of the Affirmations/Quotes I have collected will help me succeed with that. For example my two favourites from Susan Jeffers are:

    "Feel the fear and do it anyway." And "Whatever happens, I'll handle it."

    You know I"m one who often pokes fun at the motivational sayings and quotes and books - but the one above is a valid tool of cognitive therapy.

    Acknowledging to YOURSELF that you are afraid, or angry, or hurt....takes away the power of that emotion. Telling others uses the fear or anger as an excuse - and denying an emotion like fear or anger can just make it worse.

    Another truism - 'if you don't mind, it don't matter'.

      Thanks Kay. : ) I didn't think about it like that. Similarly I think being "Mindful" can be helpful. (That basically means a Person observing/feeling their thoughts/emotions -- rather than "reacting" to them.)
