Since you’re not going to get paid for your work on a per hour basis you need to make sure you stay mentally strong. You can spend many weeks and months, maybe even years before you make some real money!
So you really have to avoid negative thinking that occurs due to stress and lack of results and success. But eventually you’ll make your first sale and then get your first cheque. You progressively grow and improve if you keep on pushing with courage and determination.
Whenever you try something new at first you’ll be pretty bad at it.
But over time as you gain knowledge and improve your skill you become pretty good at it!
It’s the same thing with an Internet business. At first you’ll be pretty bad in all areas like copywriting, building websites, writing emails, building sales funnels, etc.
As you gain knowledge and improve the skills you’ll start to become good at it.
So don’t give up just because you don’t see results instantly.
To build a successful Internet business requires a lot of work and effort. Who tells you it’s easy is most likely trying to steal your money (by selling you their “get rich quick” system or formula).
Friends and family members will probably not understand you, so you may feel a bit lonely too. They may not believe in you and think you’re wasting your time, don’t let that put you down!
Even when you show them proof like your first cheque don’t expect too much encouragement or praise.
Until then this is kind of a lonely journey.
But you shouldn’t care what others think.
Make a decision today that you’re going to do ANYTHING necessary (that’s not illegal or harmful to anyone, obviously…) to succeed!
With this new attitude if something goes wrong or terrible wrong you are not going to give up. If something you did failed you are not going to give up. If a customer, freelancer or a designer wasted 4 precious hours of your time you are not going to give up. If you lack a skill you are not going to give up.
Thoughts of giving up will surface from time to time but you should get rid of them and work harder. You will find solutions to problems and learn from something negative.
Every bad experience is a learning experience!
You are going to learn from each and every failure! I know failures feel really bad, I’ve failed way many times.
We don’t learn Internet marketing at school – most of us do not have business skills – the Internet is like a laboratory and we’re the scientists experimenting ways to make money.
Failure is almost inevitable.
Luckily, making money on the Internet is nothing new, it’s be done for more than a decade. So there’s already a lot of knowledge and wisdom available that you can learn from.
Plenty of other people have done the “experiments”. they failed and learnt something from it.
You are not a pioneer, if you put the required effort and commitment you can succeed.
Your mindset has to be firm and ready, so you will not give up. There’s always something to learn from each failure, if you try to find the lesson.
The way to succeed on the Internet is to constantly learn, improve your skills and take massive action!
It’s going to happen that something doesn’t work out exactly as planned.
The real problem is if you give up or quit altogether!
Interview any successful person and they all had more failures than success.
