I wanted to share a few things about business and mentality with you. Its propelled me to success, I hope it can do the same for you.

Lets start by talking about enjoying what you do. Falling in love with what you do for a living. The easiest way to do this, is to realize that the work you do ultimately benefits someone. Your effort is in turn, going to help you, and help someone else.

There is great joy to be found in realizing that your efforts go to help other people. A key to success is to shift your mind from thinking about what you can do to manipulate someone into buying from you...

To what benefit or value you can give to people that is so powerful that they will always buy from you.

Its a shift in your mentality.

First focus your effort on the people you are going to help. Think about those who will benefit from you. Learn about them as people. Understand who they are, and learn how to empathize with them thoroughly. You customers are not numbers, they are living, breathing human beings who want many of the same things you do.

The most powerful thing anyone can possess in life is the power of love. Without it nothing has much flavor. With it, everything takes on a new appeal.

Your secret power in your business is the power to love your customers. To genuinely, honestly, try to give them everything you can, because you love them so much and want to help them.

How easy is it, to get someone to buy something, when you genuinely care about them and are trying to help improve their lives. What a difference it is between being a person who schemed up a little plot to make some money by selling stuff.

Just think of the difference between those two mindsets. It gets communicated in everything you do. All of your communications and actions are affected by this difference in thinking. What are you trying to do in your business? Enjoy the pleasure of helping another person - or make money for yourself?

You can free yourself from all the pains and anxiety of making money by stop focusing on money - and measure your success by how many peoples lives you have improved. How many people have you touched - how have you enriched the lives of those around you?

One of the big problems entrepreneurs face in their businesses is they aren't very happy. Most people are not enjoying what they do. The way to bring lasting passion into your business is to have a higher purpose for your business than making money.

That purpose needs to be something you give to others. It cant be about yourself. Your business needs a mission, a purpose, a goal to deliver some form of exceptional value to people. Discover what it is and instantly things begin to change for you.

Furthermore, you need to develop this purpose until it becomes an all consuming passion. It has to become something so vivid, so intense that your crazily focused on your purpose and refuse to give in - or give up to anything.

Your dream has to become so clear that you will let absolutely nothing stand in your way. Know your purpose then develop this into an all consuming passion that you will never give up on - regardless of how high the obstacles are.

You need to learn how to concentrate your mind. How to focus your attention on your singular, lustful purpose that you have now envisioned. Its got to become so passionate, so real that it becomes all you think about. An all consuming thought that never leaves you.

Shift your confidence level by stopping from asking, could I really do this? Instead just ask, is this big enough for me, have I set goals high enough or is this still too low?

Eliminate your fear of failure by realizing that failure is a part of learning what works. Just like you dont expect to hit a hole in one everytime - you can also now stop expecting to have your business attempts go perfect everytime too. Understand that in order to succeed you have to fall on your face a few times, and if you dont, you'll never get there. Embrace it as a part of the journey you must do in order to reach your goal.

Each time you make a mistake you are one step closer to your success. Unstoppable determination must not be something you try to do - you must make it a core part of your philosophy. Put it into your business strategy that your key advantage is never, never, never giving up. Every time you get knocked down you will come back harder and stronger than ever before. Put it into your business strategy.

Focus on what use of your time will bring the best ROI. Stop trying to do everything and reduce your activities to the best and most productive use of your time. Figure out which actions you take result in the biggest gain for your business. Then do only those from now on.

Forget about being the smarty pants and get other people to help you. The warrior forum has a wealth of people just like you working to succeed. When you work together you have the an army of 10,000 behind you - instead of a one man army.

The average person is intimidated and afraid of the things they want to achieve. They think, can I really do that? Instead you need to change your thinking about this. You may want something, but you dont really believe its possible for you. You think, maybe for other people but right now, I dono if I can really do this.

We gotta switch that. You have to believe that you have a special purpose in this world. That someone put you down here to do something big. Something really important. That everything you have been through up till now has just been training to get you ready. Like all the great stories of heros they start off from humble places.

No one accomplishes great things beginning at the top. You go through trials and tribulations, all to get you ready for the greatness you are about to perform. You have to believe, down to the very core of you, that you have a special purpose on this earth, it involves touching and transforming the lives of people.

Then it doesnt matter how much money someone else has. It doesnt matter how good at internet marketing someone else is. None of that applies to you now. You are here to do something special, something important, what you were meant to do. Your here to change and improve the lives of people, to transform them into happier, more successful individuals. That doesnt require anything but heart.

Get out there and start helping people. Start transforming their lives and start enriching their day to day experience. See what you can do to change the world around you. How can you deliver the highest and greatest good you can give? How can you deliver the most impact and help people in the best way possible?

Is it by pushing a crappy PLR product you know sucks? Is it by offering a scammy affiliate product you dont really think is going to help people? No. You know that, I know that, lets focus on the great and amazing things you were meant to do.

You need to understand you have something more important to do. Your purpose lies beyond just having a "business" that gets you buy or earns you money. So what about that. Whats so great, so impressive about being someone who simply earns money. Millions of people do that. Its nothing impressive.

You should avoid everything that isnt worthy of you. Get in touch with your purpose that is beyond money and money will come to you, begging for you to be its master. You will no longer be controlled by it, and your insecurities will vanish. Get in touch with what you were meant to do, and you'll set on fire, succeeding faster than you ever thought possible.

    Thank you. I think the most important thing you said, for me, is "Quit being a smarty pants and get other people to help you." I have been working on asking for help and this was a nice reminder.

    I love how you put this first. This is essential for marketers to understand; when you seek to help people, you are bringing value into the world. That value is what attracts money into your life. After all, why else would people want to give you their money? Making value the fundamental focus of your business makes your business relevant, worth having and investing effort in, and generally creates long-term profitability all in one fell swoop.

    Your welcome guys, im glad I could help you

    In the end money is an exchange in value - the more value you give to others - the more money you get in return.

    In the end quality always wins out over quantity. Its the difference between short term investing and long term investing. Warren Buffet, the third richest man in the world - seeks to invest with the mindset that the stock market would close tommorrow and not reopen for 100 years.

    With this mindset he buys quality businesses that will succeed instead of focusing on making a quick buck. We can see this strategy works because he is 10x more successful than the second most successful investor in the world - George Soros.

    Indeed if you look at anyone who has achieved substantial success they have added great value to other people. You cannot have one without the other unless you are cheating people. Great companies focus on what unique value they can deliver - substance in your business will always yield a higher long term profitability than focusing on short term gains.

    This was how American business started to fall back, they had stopped being value conscious and became money conscious. They forgot the money represented the superior real value they were supposed to be delivering. Financial advisors became greedy and only saw numbers, instead of remembering those numbers represented goods and services that were being exchanged.

    People trade their time for money, and then their money for other things that add value to their life. So many people forget the part about trading for value. People are always seeking to get the greatest value for their money - but everyone forgets this. They focus on marketing instead of realizing that their prospect isnt interested in their marketing. Prospect are interested in your product and the value it can provide to them - they dont give a hoot about your marketing.

    If your not providing superior value, your not in business for very long. People buy value, marketing is only an expression of this. A superior high value product, combined with an effective communication of the value it delivers (aka marketing/sales) is a winning formula.
