It all starts from within

Since I began starting my online venture, I have joined several mailing lists, membership programs, and purchased a ton of ebooks and ecourses. I ran across some gems, but many of them didn't live up to their claims.

They promised me and others the sun, moon, and stars. In the end, I was left with some serious credit card debt. I have to admit that some of the disappointment was partially my fault. You see there are not many coaching programs out their that prepare you mentally. What I mean by that is they prepare you for the business and the technical side of internet marketing, but very few focus on getting you ready mentally.

Life is a game. You must play by the rules or you will loose everytime. There are going to be hurdles and obstacles that you face in your online venture. Having the right mindset in the beginning will allow you to be better prepared for when those stormy and uncertain days occur. Being prepared beforehand will allow you to stay calm and focus on a solution and execute it with a clear mind. Having a cluttered mind will bring chaos and cause you to push the panic button and maybe even close up shop and walk away.

If you are involved in some type of coaching progam, ask if they have tools and workshops that offer advice on how to be successful mentally. Read articles and see how the successful people handle their "stormy moments". Being prepared in the beginning can prevent failure in the end. Here's to your success! See you at the top!

    To you as well, my fellow Warrior

    I totally agree, except for the part about playing the rules. I personally like to ignore some rules of life, and do crazy things. Only then can I achieve crazy, non-mediocre results.

      Yeah that is true. If you are a little different and try the unexpected....you will most likely achieve the unexpected. Venturing out and making your own name will draw more people towards you.

    I was one of those who thought life coaching was "airy fairy" but since I started having coaching and coaching people, my inner and outer life has never been better. It is incredibly awesome, but like anything else requires you to take action steps. There is no "magic cure" for anything in business or life.

      I agree about there not being a magic pill. That's the bad part about following so many different so-called "internet marketing gurus". You are fed all the hype and glory and very little work dream. Success takes hard work. There is no way you can escape that reality. In my opinion it's better to work hard at something and achieve extraordinary results. You have a greater appreciation of what you have accomplished. If things are handed to us on a silver platter, we tend to take them for granted. Throw away that magic pill and conquer your dreams with hard work dedication and persistance. See you at the top!!!

    Great advice here:

    "Having a cluttered mind will bring chaos."

    Order is heaven's first law. An orderly mind recruits future peace of mind and ease in all that you do.

    The outside mirrors the inside. If your life is in shambles your mind isn't right. Take the time to work on your mental tools and all else falls into place.

      Getting rid of that cluttered mind will do wonders for you. It takes focus to make the key decisions that you will be faced with. I like the comment about the mental tools. So many coaching programs are lacking in that department. If you want to run a successful business, you have to have the knowledge, skills, and the sanity to run it. See you at the top!!! (smile)

        Well you are making things to hard for yourself. Set up a squeeze page and drive traffic to it. My guess is there must be 30 different ways to drive traffic. You only have to get good a one.

        When people come into this business everyone is telling them to learn this and learn that. How can you learn all that stuff at one time.

        After you get a squeeze page that you made yourself then Recruit some affiliates to drive traffic to your squeeze page and insert OTO(one-time-offer) in there and pay them 100% commission.(if the visitor upgrades)

        But set up a money making step for yourself on the back-end . Keep testing the squeeze page until you find one that really works, then have one custom build for you. You can get one built right here on the Warrior Forum for about $50.00

    Its very true, we do need coaching in mindset. I recently have had a coach, which has taken me through an internet course, with help. What it does is, makes me continue with things when I would have given up. Have to keep going, as meeting coach next week! Getting over hurdles and continuing on, with hope and belief it will all work, has helped me! I certainly need the push! Keep up the good work!

    Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial. You can do what you want in life but remember, in every action, there is a reaction.
