Lack of confidence and fear will crush you before you start.
So what do you do if you find yourself stuck in a negative pattern.
You have to combat these feelings.
First, know that they are normal. I have them and everyone I talk to has them.
Although it is normal to feel this way, it is not okay to wallow in feelings of self doubt.
Your mindset is the #1 thing you must go to work on, starting yesterday!
So, where do you begin?
There are a few things that have helped me on my journey as an Internet marketer that I want to share with you. Now that I make a full time income, working part time from home, marketing almost exclusively online I know that I couldn’t have done it without the following:
1. Plug In
I found a community of people like me, who work hard every day to create their dream life. Connecting with inspiring, motivational people who push me to grow as a person in life and business has been paramount to my success.
The online community that I’m part of is called My Lead System Pro. When asked about the #1 benefit people got out of it, the answer was community. The online marketing training and tools are great, but the community is priceless.
For just $10 bucks, you can check out the community at MLSP.
2. Find A Mentor
I gained access to mentors who inspire me. I now break through what I thought were limitations and push outside of my comfort zone. I push myself to do things that in the past, I never would have thought possible. A great mentor sees your potential and will accelerates your growth.
3. Personal Development
Listening, reading or watching something every day having to do with developing myself as a person has changed my life. One of the very best tools for personal development that is absolutely free is YouTube! Check out Tony Robbins, John C. Maxwell, Simon Sinek, and many, many more. Listen to their talks and be inspired. Doing this every single day for at least 30 minutes will change you!
Another great resource for personal development is Audible.com. Download a free audiobook and listen to it as you go about your day.
I no longer listen to the radio in my car. It’s all about the audiobooks (the kids would rather go with dad, lol)!
The skills and confidence that you gain from listening to 30 minutes of personal development each day will be key to the foundation of your business.
4. Commit to Growing As A Leader
No matter what type of business you’re in, MLM, Direct Sales, Home Based, or Small Business, you must step up and become a leader. Whether you’re leading a team of distributors, or customers into the sales funnel, leadership will separate you from your competition.
Strengthening your leadership skills will give you the opportunity to tap into the potential of others to bring out the best in them.
It will also force you to think like a leader, which will separate you from 97% of people in the world today. When you step into your role as a leader, you become part of the elite population of successful entrepreneurs.
Now, you may be asking yourself, “where is the money in all of this?”
Have you heard the Zig Ziglar quote, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
I believe this to be true.
Help others, and the money will follow.
Far too many people focus solely on the money and wind up fizzling out far too quickly. Having an “it’s all about me” attitude may help you rise up quickly, but you will fall harder than ever.
It starts with strengthening yourself. Equipping yourself with the tools you need so that you can help others.
This is just the beginning!
