It all comes down to fear...
Most people are afraid of failure or disappointing others. The fear element is what tends to hold most people back from the magic moment when they produce results.
However if you just make adjustments bit by bit to your overall attitude then a world of oportunites will open up to you.
Why Failure Isn't Exactly The Way To Look At It
When you were first learning how to ride your bike, you fell. Maybe a lot, maybe a few times. This is what happens when you try something new.
Up until that point, you didn’t know what it felt like to balance on two wheels while also in motion. You hadn’t yet experienced the physics of riding a bike but as you kept practicing, you adjusted and adapted to what was necessary for you to stay on that bike.
Every time you fell, were you a failure? Of course not.
Failure means giving up completely or never riding the bike at all.
Starting an online business is like learning to ride a bike - except it takes you 3 to 5 years rather than 1 day.
Maybe you only want to take the “right” action and you only want to make it “right” the first time.
So you end up taking no action because you don’t know exactly what to do or even hesitate to do anything for that fear of making a mistake.
So failure as a concept is a totally false construct of the mind.
The truth is...
EVERYTHING you do creates a result. It might not always result in a perfect execution of your goals but there’s always something you can learn from each action you take and that is a success in itself. Hence, why you cannot fail.
When hurdles arise, don’t just throw in the towel. Failure wont exist if you’re taking steps and moving forward, moving towards your ultimate lifestyle design.
Being a perfectionist is killing your forward motion.
The Missing Link to Upgrade Your Mindset for Success
Every action has a reaction.
It is only a matter of not judging yourself as a failure but rather as someone who’s committed to continuing to improve, learning, analyzing and adapting because you’re choosing to believe you will ultimately reach your goals.
Setbacks and learning curves are not failures. You are not a failure just because you didn’t get the result you were looking for.
Adjust and Keep Going
It all comes down to you deciding to have the mindset of, “if something doesn’t work, I’m going to learn from it, adjust my strategy and keep trying”.
This kind of mindset is the missing link to the no such thing as failure concept.
You will get knocked down though, the mindset for success is that you will adapt and cultivate your willpower to become a strategic entrepreneur.
It’s like split testing your popup on WordPress, you’re going to gain valuable information, from what? From what doesn’t work, which just leads you to adapt and move towards what does. Failure is a window into more information.
Creative thinking is one of the best ways to overcome any failure you may face in your life. And let's face it, failure is the birth of creative genius.
Even nature adapts, so you have to hold the perspective that every layer in your steps to a successful online business is adjustable based on what you learn is and isn’t working for your online business.
But in order for you to make any progress, you have to start. Nothing needs to be perfect, but no action is...
How to shift and Learn
When I first started my business, I was faced with a lot of unknowns.
I didn’t have a degree in business or marketing and no one in my family was an entrepreneur.
Like you, I was yearning to quit my job and become an internet marketer, move through the phases of the cashflow quadrant and bring value to the world.
But I didn’t produce a 6 figure income overnight.
There were a lot of things I had to learn and could only learn by going through the process. It takes being willing to adjust and adapt to gain success.
It also takes exploiting your strengths and finding and working within your personal unfair advantage.
Every single aspect of building and growing an online business comes with learning curves.
That’s what motivates me to share all the information I do with you. To eliminate some of that for you so you can actualize your dream faster.
Challenges will still be there, you will take actions without knowing all of the answers and things won’t always work the way you thought.
What Separates You From Them
The only difference between those internet marketers who make it to the end and those who don’t is that successful people practice basic mindset hacks to change their perspective for the better.
So who cares if your parents weren’t entrepreneurs and there's no one in your family to look up to, whether or not you have a degree, if you want it badly enough then do it!!!
Stop looking at your perceived setbacks as failures, success doesn’t happen overnight, that’s some fake guru conspiracy stuff that’s messing with your mind!
Long Lasting Success Emerges from Actions Over Time
Don’t expect to make commissions quickly. Don’t expect to be an overnight success because you won’t be.
Success is not something that comes in an instant or in a few days.
Internet marketers like you and I are working within the attention marketing age where know like and trust is a requirement for online success.
Becoming a content creator is king and that in of itself, takes time and is hard!
Building your list, testing your offers and figuring out your best email marketing strategy, also takes time.
Success is the result of the actions you take over a period of time as you launch, analyze, and adapt.
Commitment to consistently taking action, observing the results, adjusting your approach, and taking more action.
That’s the formula I’ve been using over and over again and this is why I can attest to the fact that there is absolutely no such thing as failure.
Thomas Edison attempted to make the electric light bulb 1,000 times. What were his thoughts on the matter? He saw it as, 1,000 ways not to make a light bulb. Now that's some creative thinking! Failure after failure but he still kept going.
This is the mindset and approach you need to have towards your business. That no matter what happens, your success will emerge with your personal steps to success and learning from the results.
Just like with the lightbulb, growing your business takes time and that’s fine. You’re looking for sustainable long-term success, not a fleeting success with one hit wonders.
The world is filled with tons of people who have a life much more challenging than yours. Just the fact you have access to internet means you're already in a pretty good position.
The world is waiting for you to break past your fear of failure and step into your creative genius. What will you create?
