Bad Things Happen To Good People Who Don't Take Action..

You're a good marketer, so is your fellow marketer who is just reading this thread. But you simply cannot wait to improve your mindset, because otherwise your business shrinks.

Way too few people I've worked with, considered there mindset as the most important success factor. I personally have believed that mindset is not important and important. And I can tell you what helped me more .

Let's have a look at how mindset affects your business:



#1 - Actions

Undoubtedly, your actions represent your state of mind in every regard. Action is the only real measure of how intelligent you are. Those who take action will always have a tremendous advantage over those who don't, even if the actions are incorrect.

You can know everything about a certain marketing technique all day long, but without the ability, persistence, you won't be able to monetize your knowledge. Reading eBooks is good, but applying information is better.
It's better to learn less, but to apply more. Most skills can only be learned by doing and practicing them.

#2 - Relationships

Smart and persistent marketers manage to form relationships with smart and persistent people. Relationships can only be formed by putting in hours of hard work. Also here, it is far better to build fewer relationships but more in-depth ones, especially when you consider long term business.

Since your time is limited, you need to spend it wisely and be conscious about the people you connect with.

Mindset is the key in connecting with marketers, affiliates, and coaches you can enormously benefit from.

#3 Businesses

Your businesses always depend on your business and relationships. As you know, you need people for certain tasks you are unable to do, would it be because of a lack of time, skills, talent..

Working smart means to leverage your time, so that you get more done with less effort. You can absolutely accomplish that by working multiple businesses and having other people do most of your work.

It's better to make 25% on a $97 product and spend 15 minutes on average to generate a sale, than it is to make 100% on a $77 product with 2 hours work.

#4 - Income

Your mindset, actions, relationships and business determine your EXACT income. Your dream income can only be reached by mastering the first 3 areas, and only then you'll be able to fully revolutionize your online business.
If something is not working, don't work the cold turkey anymore. Either reinvent the business/action or get a new idea for your business.

It doesn't make a lot of sense to continue doing what you've always done just because it feels easier and less risky.

Be a conscious risk taker and free thinker.

Best wishes,

Gerald

    Thank you for this post - it clearly sets out how mindset is built on 4 key elements. We are often told to change our mindset and it will change our results.

    It seems to me that taking action in key areas like relationships and working smarter create a virtual loop i.e. action improves mindset and improved mindset increases our confidence to take action. Would you agree?

      Yes, definitely.

      If you're willing to change your mindset, you instantly take actions that'll lead you there.

      The real gold lies in identifying what produces results and what doesn't. Figuring out what is a good or bad action might take a while and mostly requires you to accept, go through short term failure.

      Be conscious about your actions, and give your mindset time to grow, develop, and produce!

    Awesome post!

    Without the right mindset, people will just give up their dreams when they face difficulties and let fear control them.

      Very true. Fear and courage are both illusions of what's going to happen tomorrow. Whatever state of mind you choose is a personal decision that nobody else can make for you.

      Everyone is afraid of something, so the question is what is someone willing to do about it.

      People who take action even if they do it the wrong way, always have an immense edge over people who don't.

      The motto should be: Go ahead with what you have and aim for more!

      Too often, we look around to see circumstances that are not optimal and in the attempt to change them, we're not being honest to ourselves.

      Change needs to come from an internal commitment, never external circumstances. You can't really rely on anyone else besides yourself.

      Relying on yourself is always the safest way to success.

      You are most welcome!

      While this might be true, mindset is something you always need, not just in the starting stage. Once you've reached a certain income level, it can happen that you fall back, and this quickly. The reason why you might fall back is because of your mindset.

      The moment you stop improving yourself, is the moment where your mindset shrinks. You might not even notice that until it suddenly makes a big crash!

    Thanks for great post.

    I too believe those things are intrinsically connected and influence one another.

    Improving in one area makes you improve in other and you grow as a whole,
    where lacking in one area influence others in a negative way.

    bad thing happen.. we live on a planet where currently ..being human involves bad thing happening to us..

    responsability has nothing to do with you accepting blame and thinking you have been punished for doing something wrong ..

    Responsability is when something bad happens how do you respond to it ... in many cases taking total blame is counter productive ..

    donald trum went billions of dollars in debt .. most people know this .. he wanted to respond by hiding and not going out.. instead he tied on a suit and when to some function.. and by a quirk of fate sat next to the guy who was in charge of his debt at the banks ..

    the best quaterbacks throw interceptsion and incomplete passes.. the only way they can respond is to get up next time and trow a pass as soon as possible ..

    forgive me for hyjacking your thread

    Taking action is already a risk but try to think if you don't make any action that is also a risk so just try and set up your mind. Keeping up your mindset makes you more productive and it gives you more another positive aura.

      Thanks!

      Yes, if outside circumstances would be the main success factor, why is it then that so many people with bad circumstances manage to make a lot of money, than people with better conditions?

      Mindset.

      I think the ability to deal with stress is obligatory in online marketing, especially when you start of. Everything goes wrong, and you are hitting the 4th week without any sale.. and what keeps you going is the desire to be better, to make it work, or to simply cash in!

    Mindset is the number one key.

    Without it you can only limit yourself to failure.

    Totally agree. In NLP they say "change your mind - change your future". However it is not always easy changing your mind with things like fear for example. It may be an illusion of what might happen but the feelings that go with it are SO real. But its true - it all starts with the mind.

      I think attitude is very important,just like ,sometime you don't want to do something ,but if you TRY , may be you will like it.So ,every time I told myself,heart suggests that is very important.

    Having a good mindset in business is absolutely essential, but if you don't consistently apply that mindset to achieving what you desire, it is impossible to reach you income goals.

    Developing the mindset is half the battle; the other half is actually putting it into practice until our reach your goals.

    This is good, it s very important to have a focused and determined mindset.

    Without action nothing is ever going to be accomplished. you need to have the mindset that you must go out there and you must do something, no matter the amount of times you fail.
