Probably because I didn't have my own mind right!!
I'll keep this short. Am I an expert Tony Robbins Goo Roo genius that has all this stuff figured out?
I'm still trying to improve a little more each day and I've got loads to go to get to where I want to be.
But I have been able to do a few small things that made a big difference this past year. I went from doing very little productive to launching many products, achieving WSO of the Day, making tens of thousands online, building a decent sized list, and a nice Offline Business that supports me full time.
More than anything it just feels plain good, no incredible, to set a plan and actually DO. Actually take action ya know?
So how did I do it and how can it help you?
For one, I was in a tough spot. I HAD to make it work. I had the bottom drop out of my Construction business and my bank account was at zero.
I decided to get into Offline Marketing and to call up a few businesses. Thing was I knew exactly what I needed to do but still for probably a week I couldn't get myself to take action.
Frustration and depression was building.
I'll tell you a simple but game changing thing that gave me the shift.
I asked myself " On a scale of 1-10 how will I feel if I don't make a single call today?"
I said to myself like a 2 or something.
Then I said "On a scale of 1-10 how will I feel if I just make 1 call? If I just pick up the phone and dial a single number and talk to someone?"
I said like a 12!!
Then I asked what's the worst that could happen.
If I do nothing then I'll get nothing and will actually lose a lot. But if I start taking massive action, even if people are rude, cuss, whatever worst case is, I found out that it's not really that bad!
The upside potential far exceeded the downside.
I am not promoting cold-calling or anything, this is just when the shift occurred.
I think it happened because it took "ME" out of the equation. My fears were not logical or even real. It was all in my head. I had to step back and look at it logically.
That simple little action got me started on an amazing path.
The next thing is systems. With no system you have no chance of being happy or making money.
What's your system now?
We all know the basics. We need to get leads, we need to convert them, and then they need to buy.
Simple as that.
So if you're current system is cruise Warrior Forum, buy 5 products this week, check email every few minutes, go to Facebook, rinse and repeat, well that's a pretty crappy system that accomplishes nothing to grow a real business.
So a better system could be reach out to 5-10 new potential customers today via xyz, build business relationships, send traffic to website via ads, or jv's, test to improve conversions, have a true irresistible offer that will build raving fans...
Yea that's a rough run down but you get the point.
What's the daily system that is simple and that you can WORK.
And work is the final point. Without work, you'll get NOTHING done.
Massive action get's massive traction.
You've gotta strap down, eliminate the distractions, chunk down your goals til you know exactly what to do and then attack that thing like a freakin' beast!!
I've rambled enough so I'll save some more for another day.
In short, YOU'VE GOT THIS!!! GO OUT AND CRUSH IT!!
