    A positive mindset is a must at any career and field. A positive mindset can help you focus on getting the job done efficiently. There's a great book you might have heard or read called <Think and Grow Rich>. People start IM should read it.
    very good question!

  • Mindset is great....However despite books like "think and grow rich" and the "secret"

    state it just isn't enough....Let's face it no matter how much you use mindset if you do not have access to the resources that you need and it is for some reason impossible to get that access-no matter how your mind set is you will be stuck.

    Determination and drive is important however it is not the only factor!

      Can you elaborate on that? My take would be that if you have the right mindset you can get through any obstacle - or around it, if that obstacle is impossible as you say.

      Victor Frankl has a great book called - Man's Search For Meaning which I think helps to highlight how much mindset can do.

    Dear Username Sucks,

    Thanks, really good point.... Whenever i look at any of the most successful Marketers, you are right, they are very creative, very open, all seem to promote value and service.
    These are all Mindset facilities.

    Appreciate your input.

    TMO,

    Thanks for the update, i have been a student, practitioner and coach of Mindset for over 30year.

    In-fact i have a published book series that compliments Think and Grow Rich in relation to Mindset and then goes on to then combine Mindset and How To, processes like property, share market, IM, MLM and tradition business models.
    If you would like a free copy PM me

    Best Music For Video,

    This exactly where i think a lot of these self improvement concepts are misunderstood. Everyone that has a good grasp on Mindset see's it as another tool.
    One point that i am glad you and this post has opened up is that perhaps Mindset mite be seen as the first process to work through, then target market, niche demand, keyword research, SEO, strategy and so on.
    With out the first piece the rest do not produce the results most IM'ers are hoping for.

    No one will ever be successful by sitting under a tree and just being positive. That positive Mindset will aid the application and determination that is required.

    Sometimes, as popular as it is, i feel that the Secret was perhaps a better marketing concept that success aid.

    Thanks Rob

      the hypnoman hits a point that I love and many people won't accept. One can only do or not do, one can not try. I'll give you an example, place a pen on the table in front of you, now "try" to pick it up, wait before you pick it up notice I said "try" to pick it up. Now, did you or didn't you pick it up? "Try" is not a verb and "to try" can not be done. If you eliminate this word from your vocabulary you take a giant leap away from being a victim to being a creator.
      To Your Success,
      Mike

      Absolutely right, I was an employee most of my working life, a failed business owner (according to my own definition). When started in IM, my first mentor was not on product creations or IM, but instead to work on my mindset.

      Important ingredients are (1) positive mindset/ vision, (2) positive believe that you can and (3) take positive action. You will need all three to succeed in any business.

        I agree
        The most problem is people don't act
        or if they act, they don't finish it.

        99% = not finish
        100% = finish

        100% is very important

    Mindset is more important then any other factor in your life. I am proof of this. I went from poor on the streets in NYC to earning $100k monthly simply by changing my thought process and perception. Tell yourself "I deserve the best of everything." Just keep repeating it over and over again inside your mind and in a couple of weeks I guarantee you will start seeing a change in your life!

    Hi Joe,

    Funny thing here is that i agree with you that you have to put in, absolutely!

    I suppose for me its a little like putting the cart in-front of the horse.
    There are millions of people put in the work every day and not gettin the reward.

    Most if not all people who are getten have the Mindset already, many without even knowing it.

    Mindset alone wont do it, but neither will just workin!

    Seriously ..I really appreciate your post

    Thanks Rob

      Very true Rob, very true.

      One of the big problems with an employee-turned-entrepreneur is that there work habits have to ramp up a bit. It's real easy to fall into the trap of over-thinking and under-working the beginnings of their new empire.

      It's something I have to remind myself of constantly.

      All the best,

      Joe Mobley

    Mike, yes this theme is a powerful one you reinforce.

    Have you ever seen a very good hypnotist? I have seen powerful athletes asked under a hypnotic suggestion to PICK UP a pen or similar object. We all saw the muscles strain and try as he might the cup in this instance did not budge.

    The mind is actually the control mechanism that coordinates all the muscles and functions required to actually pick up the pen.

    Again i am not suggesting that mindset alone will achieve success, rather it is one of the 5 tools present in all successful people.

    Mike thanks so much for your comments.

    Mindset is 90% of IM... in fact any Success..

    1) work on your mindset
    2) implement and get results (positive/negative)
    3) be flexible, change strategies if a method doesn't work... scale up if it does

    Mindset is 100% important. It's the mindset that gets you motivated to begin with to make money, and then it's the mindset that gets you to take action and work to make it happen. It's also the mindset that keeps you maintaining your business after you've already accomplished your goals. It's more important than people think. Without the mindset you'd never get where you want to be.

    I'm finding that after more than 35 years of success as an excellent employee working for someone else doesn't necessarily make me a good entrepreneur. In other words, the mindset of a good employee doesn't transfer easily into the mindset of the entrepreneur. The mindset shift is from mastering the skills you need to do well on a job to marketing those skills as an entrepreneur.

    I would have to say "Focus" is most important. Sure a positive mindset will help greatly but without "Focus", it's a dead end.

    I see too many positive minded people fail due to lack of "Focus". They drift away from the tasks to be done procrastinating daily.

    I give a free course and although many apply for it, few complete it fully.

    Rob, I think Mindset, Faith and Persistence are crucial when You are trying to succeed within the IM industry.
    The reason is because there will be many failures along your journey before you find success, and many people quit right after they fail a few times in trying to make it in this industry.
    If you are persistent and have faith, I believe you will succeed sooner than later. It's all about going through with your plan to the end.

  • If you were to take a look at any successful person, in any field, you will find they have adopted a success orientated mindset.

    The results a person gets in any endeavour, to greater extent will be determined by the mindset they have and the actions they take.

    Right now we live in a time where there is an over abundance of information, of how to books, courses, programs etc. And they are in high demand.

    Then why is it successful people aren't in the majority?

    One of the answers is that they haven't adopted the right mindset.

    I completely agree with alcymart, that focus is important, people who lack focus, are easily distracted, prone to procrastinate, jump from one thing to another.

    Having just a having a success mindset is not enough. There has to be action. As Napoleon Hill said "There's no such thing as something for nothing."

    When you take action, you have to monitor your progress, action for the sake of action, can result in chaos.

    However the most important thing is to have the right mindset first, without the right mindset, having focus and overcoming obsticales is like an uphill battle.

    Adopt the right mindset first and go forth :-)

    Mindset and a positive mental attitude is crucial in doing anything in life. But a point I'd like to highlight is that its often overanalysed, overemphasised to the point of losing focus on reality and the task at hand. For example, newbies come into the IM arena looking to make money online and start feeling a need to think positive so he invests in self-help materials and referring to the Mind Warrior subforum of the WF. Alas, what he actually should do is focus on IM per se to generate actual results, not just thinking positive.

    how important mind set in IM?..
    i think it's like this :
    1. if you don't have strong will you'll lose money
    2. if you can't overcome your obstacle your going to lose chance
    3. if you can't keep looking at the future you'll lose everything you've obtain until now...
    that's the mindset i have right now in my life...

    Mindset is everything! No matter what is going on in your life, your future is dependent on what you are thinking, how determined you are to get where you want to go, and what decisions you are able to make in the midst of any situation going on around you.

    If you are determined to suceed, you will. If you constantly worry that you are going to fail, you probably will. Your mindset sets the course for whatever happens in your life and in your future, IMO.

    If you don't have the mindset that you need to be diligent and consistent and KNOW that the money will come...you won't make it.

    People that have the get-rich-quick mentality aren't going to make it very far.

    Good thread. Thanks for posting!
