This is how I started making money online

24 replies
I'd like to tell warriors the processes I followed to reprogram my mind, which in turn allowed me to start making money online.
For about 2 years I was addicted to gurus products first, and then to WSOs.
During that time I took very little action and was always looking for 'the one product' that would allow me to have the promised internet marketing lifestyle.
About a year and a half ago I started flipping sites and I've been getting a nice constant income since then. I have worked hard, especially at the beginning, but it pays off.
The way I overcame that paralysis state was through various techniques:

1 – Listening to Tony Robbins. I had also read some of this books, but for me, hearing his voice makes a big difference. He makes me feel full of energy and enthusiasm and gave me tools I have been using on a constant basis. To be precise, what helped me the most was his 'Living the Edge' program. You can get the first recording for free from his website.

2 – Having an outside life. Socializing more, doing more excersice, going to nature... This gives me strenght and when I come back to the computer I am more inclined to 'produce' rather than to 'read'. The Chinese call our vital energy 'chi' and they consider it an essential part of a vibrant health. If you spend many hours in front of the computer you really need to take breaks, move your body, go to the countryside (or to the beach if you live near), breath deeply and do all the things that make you move your vital energy.
Otherwise you will feel stuck and unable to take action.

3- Re-program my mind. How? Very easy. You need to tell yourself messages that will help you become the kind of person you want to be. For example, if you want to be a proactive person, you could say to yourself something like: 'I am a proactive person. I always take action on the things that help me achieve my goals. I prefer doing than reading. I consistently make money on line and I enjoy doing it. I am full of energy. I am always creating (products, articles, whatever you want to do online). I immensely enjoy my new personality. Each day that goes by I am more and more energetic and I love leaving my comfort zone and doing activities that help me expand and grow emotionall, physically and spiritually. I create masses of energy that I use to implement what I have learnt. I focus on ONE system and I continue doing it whatever happens. I believe in myself. Deep down in my heart I know I can do this, I am absolutely determined to take massive action on a daily basis...' The most important thing is not just to say these things to yourself but to believe them. You really need attach positive emotions to them and feel them in your whole body. The more you do this, the more you will re-program your mind. It's a question of positive emotion, belief and repetition. Do this every single day when you are driving, brushing your teeth, cooking... (not during your working hours) and these messages will become engrained in your subconscious mind. I suggest you write them.

4- Another useful tool is to listen to hypnosis recordings. There is a warrior that sells already made recordings to be successful in the internet marketing.

5- And last but not least: EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). You should check their site eftuniverse(dot)com. This is INCREDIBLY EFFECTIVE.

My advice to you is that if you suffer from information overload and you are really really determined to succeed you will have to do a big change in your mind. That is not going to come from you saying to yourself: 'yeah, yeah, this is the last product I'll buy and then I'll start taking action'. Nooo, don't just think that. YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU ACT AND THE WAY YOU THINK and the only way to do it is reprograming your mind on a daily basis.
As a therapist and as a person who suffered from 'analysis paralysis', this is the best advice I can give you. Don't give up. Believe in yourself, take daily action to reprogram your mind and you will suceed!!!!

If you want more information about any of the things I've said, just PM me. I'll be more than happy to help.
To your success!
Sophie

    Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I checked all 5 that you have listed above and so far, I've applied only number 2 and 3. When I feel I'll start to be unproductive already, I go out, sometimes alone or sometimes with 1 or 2 acquiantances only. Going out with groups does not help for me. It'll only make me feel 'still not in the mood to work' the day after. I don't know why. Maybe groups does overwhelm me. And as for the programming of my mind, yeah I do that a lot. I do that way too often. Almost always before I go to sleep. But what interests me is the hypnosis recordings. How does it work?

      When you are in a hypnotic state (you are in full control of yourself, you are just deeply relaxed, like when you are falling asleep, it's the same feeling) your conscious mind is very relaxed so whatever messages are given in the recording will go straight it to your subconscious mind.
      Our personality is driven by our subconscious mind. Our habits, feelings, believes, fears, insecurities... are all stored there.
      In my experience, the best is a combination of conscious work through affirmations, visualizations, etc, with a subconscious work through hypnosis, EFT, NLP... You don't have to do it all. Just do whatever you feel comfortable with, as long as you work with both parts. Otherwise you will not be able to reprogram your mind effectively.

        Congrats to your success online. I have listened to so many 'Fake' Guru's out there who really are just in it for the money and don't really have any interest in helping others.

        We all have our up's and downs but the key is never to give up. 95% of people fail who try to make money online.

    So true Sophia, so true! It's hard to get into the work mode sometimes. You can waste sooo much time reading what others have written rather than producing money making content of your own.
    I just make up my mind to write from the time I first set down at the computer, until I get up...no reading or anything but write, write, write!
    Works for me!

    Thank you for sharing

    Hone your mental tools before you reach out to buy the latest and greatest "physical" tools in the form of a program, etc.

    Without the proper mindset expect to spin your wheels. That's why meditating, visualizing and spending hours in serious introspection are exercises for the successful entrepreneur.

    Have a powerful day!

      I agree.
      All the tools and information will not make use successful without the proper mindset.
      The funny thing is that there are usually about 20 to 40 times more people watching the WSO section than the self-improvement section...
      We think the answer is outside us, whereas in fact, it's right here, inside ourselves!

    This is very true my friend. When we change how we think and re-program our minds, it's amazing how our spirit falls into being congruent with being positive about everything! =)

        Wow! Your site is nice. Seriously, I really like it.
        My advice to you is that you STOP READING AN STUDIYING AND START PROMOTING YOUR SITE.
        If you still want to continue studying you should at least balance your work an study hours. For example, you could do one hour of work for one hour of study. Always start with what gives you less pleasure (which in your case it's probably promoting your site) and time yourself.
        A really nice tool to use is Cool Timer. You can download it for free here:
        http://www(dot)softpile(dot)com/Busi...317_index.html
        So you could do half an hour of work, half an hour of study, half an hour of work and so on.
        Another thing you could do is use an excel sheet and write the work you do everyday. Seeing in writing makes a difference. At the end of the week you revise it and make changes accordingly. You need to discipline yourself.
        You can treat yourself as a child by giving yourself punishments or rewards depending on the amount of work that you do.
        During work hours no emails, telephones or web browsing are allowed.
        At the beginnig it might be hard for you, but the more you do it, the easier it will get. Discipline is like a muscle. The more you make it work the stronger it gets.
        Maybe this could be one of your new year's resolutions!
        All the best
        Sophie

    It almost makes me sick because Tony Robbins is so cliche, but I found the exact same thing in my life. Listening to Tony Robbins gave me constant motivation for about 10 months to move, change and gain control of my life.

    There's something about his positive energy that is infectious: not just on an emotional level, but somewhere deeper. It sticks with you.

    Thanks for this, Sophie.
