Good day all! I want to quickly deviate from the normal articles where I talk about technical details about becoming an Internet marketer. Today I like to talk about the mindset of an Internet marketer.
I’ve been thinking pretty hard about this for some time, and after reading comments from other Internet marketers I’ve come to one major conclusion why many Internet marketers fail.
You may have or may not have heard this before, but you have already failed or succeeded before you even started. Please let me repeat that. You’ve already failed or succeeded before you even started.
Let me illustrate this with a story. Just recently, I decided to videotape how I do niche finding with my two favorite niche finding tools; micro-niche finder and market samurai.
Both are excellent tools in their own right but I find that I can do much better and deeper niches using both tools together.
So I started by doing the easy part. I sat down, videotaped about three hours of video and then I completely edited it into a nice package. Finally I set up a sales page and I was ready to go.
This is something I’ve done in the past many times. But the next step is something I’ve never done. I decided to sell this as a WSO, or warrior special offer on the warrior forum.
Now you have to realize that this is something I’ve never done before. For the first time, I’m putting my Internet marketing information into the hands of other Internet marketers. Therefore I’m also putting my work up for scrutiny by other Internet marketers.
In my mind, I had already started the mindset of failure. I was literally shaking in my boots!
That might sound silly but believe it or not that’s exactly how I felt. I literally woke up one morning after fooling with all the technical details for couple days realizing I was now wasting time.
It is easy for me to say,’it’s not ready’. But in truth it was ready. It’s at that point that I decided it was time for me to succeed. It’s time for me to throw away the easy get out of jail card. You know that card that tells you in your mind that you’re wasting your time because it’s not can work anyhow.
I posted the WSO. Now I’ll tell you that I had to do many course corrections with how I handled this type of marketing. But delightfully I discovered what I had to share in terms of information was gladly accepted by other members.
Would I do this again? Absolutely!
Another point of the story is illustrate to you that you don’t know if you’re going to succeed or fail before you even tried and if you don’t try then you definitely failed. But when you do try, and even if you fail, you will still succeed. Because you’ve learnt a whole new set of skills!
Now it’s up to you to try that again. If you fail again, course correct and try again. No matter what you do in life, it’s dogged persistence and not some magical formula that brings you success.
When you fall into the trap of continually trying to learn so you won’t fail when you do try, then you have already succeeded in failing.
So marketers, where’s your mindset right now? Are you failing? Or let me rephrase that question, are you not trying? When you fall into the trap of continually trying to learn so you won’t fail when you do try, then you have already succeeded in failing.
Let me share a little fact with you. I probably registered and set up well over 50 domains before I started to get things right. But I was actually succeeding a little bit with every failure.
Now I have the ability to quickly set up sites that can be very profitable.
I have the ability to pick up some of the else’s information and run with it very quickly. Were others will fail I will succeed. Now I ask you, are you ready to succeed? Are you ready to succeed beyond your wildest dreams?
You will always get what you ask for.
