The first thing you REALLY need to make money online

MINDSET

It's talked about all the time, but what does it actually mean? How does that really change things?

I've been "trying" to make money online for years - about 7 to be honest. And I've found marginal success in all of the major fads - I've had Adsense sites, I jumped on the BANS bandwagon when it was hot, PLR products, service providing, eBay, you name it.

I went through major peaks of SNO (shiny new object) syndrome when I would buy everything I was emailed, every hot new WSO, hoping to find that missing piece, the one system that would FINALLY work for me and let me see the fruits of my labor.

I went from affiliate marketing to product creation to PLR writing, looking for the business model that would make me the money I wanted.

And then, in frustration, I decided to walk away, declaring that it just "wasn't for me" and I would never be able to succeed online. I deleted my internet marketing email address (ridding myself of 100's of marketer emails)

But something in me wouldn't let it go, and I started crawling around the internet again, looking for something to make it work.

I reminded myself of my favorite internet bloggers, and put myself back on their lists - my favorite is Tiffany Dow. And recently she sent this blog post: What if I gave you hope?.

And it finally hit me.

It's not about the system
It's not about the next product
It's not about anything to do with making money
It's all about me.

I can't bring value to anyone if I don't invest in myself first. I can't generate dollars for myself if I don't see the importance in what I'm saying. I can't succeed until I believe I can succeed.

It's been said a million times over (from the truly successful that honestly want to help people) that your mindset is important. But that means nothing until you honestly figure out what that means for you.

For me? It means that I'm jumping in this time with the focus on my passions - finding ways to better myself and share that process. Do I still need money? - very much so. Do I still have dreams of what I want to do with that money? - you're damn straight! But it's not the primary focus. My primary focus is me.

And no, I haven't made my first dollar in this new approach yet. But it doesn't matter. I know I'm going to succeed now - and so I already have.

    Yup I agree, and I've have read it here so many times about Mindset. It really is the first thing to have in mind if you want to succeed. We tend to forget the basics and always we need to be reminded.

      Good job NoelleGrandison for finding the light in every situation. I believe that being reminded and changing the way we see things gives us a clearer purpose for our dreams. Yes, we want to have the best in life but I also believe and agree that having the right mindset is the key to success. That is why discipline gives us endurance and persistence in every hardship that we encounter because it is a product of right alignment and mindset.

    Awesome!

    The hardest part is changing your mindset and ignoring all the negativity and brainwashing that we hear on a constant basis.

    "Get a 9-5 or fail at life"
    "Oh you think you're going to make money online? hahahahaha"
    "Why don't you get a "real" job?"

    The list goes on and on and on!

    If you believe you will succeed, you will. It's that simple. Not easy, but simple.

    My favorite thing to do is envision where I want to be at the end of this year. Just lay there, eyes closed, and picture your perfect life. The more you do this, the more REAL it will become and the stronger your mindset will be.

    YOU are awesome :)

    One of my all time favorite quotes is by Napoleon Hill, "If you feed your mind, your present circumstances cannot contain you".

    "Cannot" is very important to realize that whatever you feed will grow. This is a universal law that has been around since time began and will be around forever and will not change.

    My suggestion is to feed your mind, I have several books I could recommend if you like?

    Just my take

      I would LOVE some book recommendations - I'm very much addicted to any information that makes me a better person.

    Thank you for your inspiring post!

    I know you will succeed. I believe anyone who starts working on themselves and share his/her passion to the world will be rewarded.

    The business knowledge that you possess is to complement your new mindset. Something must carry the new mindset and passion across. And that's the business part.
