I’m not a very active member in this section (I think that this is my first post here!). However, I started reading some threads here 2 or 3 days ago and I noticed 2 things. They are:
* There are many people here with a serious problem: too much thinking and little action.
* There is lot’s of good advice being posted here by several helpful guys, but there is a lot of misleading information as well.
So, I decided to share the one I consider (I’m not saying that this is an absolute truth, this is just my opinion) the formula to the success. I’m a 19 year old full-time internet marketer who got started online in the beginning of 2008 at the age of 16. I’m not one of those prodigious boys making 6 figure a month at 12, but, yes, I’m young and making a very good income with CPA. Some people seem not to like young people who succeed in this industry, but I’m very proud of who I am and what I make, so I have no reason to hide my age.
That said, here is the exact formula that I used to succeed in this business:
I’m not saying that everybody who is a successful internet marketer has used this formula. I’m just saying that I have used it.
The first thing that you need to understand is that money will not come to you just because of the way you think or simply because you are optimist. I’m sorry if this statement goes against your principles or philosophy. My intention is not to tell you how to think or what to do, but just let you know what my experience in this business has taught me in almost 3 years.
The mindset is important. No, it’s essential! But only when thoughts become actions and actions become results. Thoughts alone are worth nothing when it comes to business.
If Bill Gates were optimist and had thought about creating Microsoft, but had done nothing, would he be a millionaire? The same about Steve Jobs with Apple, Sergey Brin and Larry Page with Google and any other entrepreneur with their successful companies.
So this is the reason why I consider action the most important aspect. Take action. Commit mistakes and learn how things work from your own experiences. Don’t be afraid of going through your learning curve. It’s there, it’s very real and you need to beat it.
The second aspect that you must have in order to become a successful internet marketer is a combination of focus and persistence. You won’t succeed the first time you try and you won’t succeed you don’t try enough. Pretty simple rule that has proven to be true countless times in my life and business. Try. Fail. Try again. Fail. Try once more. Keep doing this until you succeed. But don’t do it jumping from one system to another or your learning curve will be endless. Put your focus on something and stick on it until you start getting results.
Finally, we have the system. It is important, but this is the easiest part and you shouldn’t worry too much about it. There are many good systems out there. Actually, chances are that you know more than 10. Just choose one of them, take action and stay focused! There is no hidden system or secret method, it’s just the simple things that you know combined with action and focus. All the rest is fluff.
I know that many people will disagree with my “formula”, but, as I said, this is just the way I think, and I’m not saying that this is the absolute truth and that everybody should use/follow it.
Feel free to post your thoughts here and I’ll be happy to keep this conversation going for as much time as people consider necessary.
