Have You Made a Decision or a Commitment?

commmitmentA Story of 3 Frogs on a Log

A lot of people know this one, but here is goes anyway:

3 Frogs were sitting on a log in a pond. One frog decided to jump off. How many Frogs are still sitting on the log?

All of them. One simply decided to jump into the water, it never actually took the necessary action to do so.

Talk is Cheap

I speak with folks all of the time that tell me that they have decided to really do this or that and while their voices sound sincere and full of determination they don’t realize for a second that I very seldom rely on what is said, more often than not I will watch their actions to figure out if they are committed or not.

A lot of people don’t know this, some of you do, but I market a network marketing opportunity. What? Haven’t been hit over the head with one of my strategic, hard sell marketing lines??? Ah, no you haven’t. As a matter of fact, chances are that you don’t have a clue as to which network marketing company I’m involved with at all. The reason? I haven’t invited you.

Successful People Take Action

While this may sound a bit pompous and even snobbish, I don’t tell everyone about my network marketing opportunity because I am not looking for folks that tell me how much that they want to make money, I don’t want “everyone” in my business rather, I look for people that send me emails and give me phone calls about my other “lead in” opportunities. I look for those that take the initiative and actions that show me that they are committed to really getting the information they need to become successful.

Sometimes I will not answer my phones and just see who calls back. Seem a bit ridiculous? It may be, but I can tell you this. When I do offer up my opportunity to folks, I KNOW without a doubt that they will give their all. Not everyone signs up, no problem, but those that do will not make a simple decision to get involved with my company, but they will commit to building their business as well – and they do.

Are You Going After Your Dreams or Is Your Show On?

So what type of person are you? Have you made a decision to succeed or have you made a commitment to your success? There is a huge difference and not only how you look at things or are perceived by me, but a difference in your behavior. A little tip for you here, making a commitment means that you get off of the TV and free up your schedule from any other activities that are “time wasters” and use that time to free yourself from the chains of economic slavery.

So, have you made your decision today or have you made a commitment to your success?

The Mindset to Succeed

mindset to succeedA Mindset To Succeed: What it Takes

Do you have a mindset to succeed? It’s probably a question you really need to ask yourself before you commit to building a business, the problem for most folks is that they don’t know what type of mindset is required to build a business because most people have an employee mentality. I don’t want to sound like an ass here because my motivation really is to help those that want to succeed find that success, but I have to be honest as well.

So for everyone that is coming to the table here with the idea that people that own businesses are “lucky” or they make a “lot” of money or whatever is usually a perspective that isn’t right. I’ve had several businesses in my adult career and I can tell you that the one thing that was consistent with ALL of them had nothing to do with how much money I made, what was consistent was how much time and effort I had to put forth to get these businesses off of the ground.

Mindset to Succeed: The Harder You Work, The Luckier You Get

You see, what most people don’t see is all of the hard work and effort that goes into creating your business, they don’t see how many hours that you put in, how much money you invest and re-invest. If you do it right, or close to right, your employees, if you have any, will not have the tiniest clue that you had to struggle to ensure that they were paid for the week.

When you come online hoping to build a business via the Internet you need to know what is in store for you and while all paths are different, there are many variables that are similar.

A Mindset to Succeed Trumps Challenges Ahead

Building a business online may be a struggle. Even though you are bound to hear how easy everything is, understand that statements like that this aren’t accurate and are often times misleading. I’m not quite sure why, some would prefer the road of hype, but I would just rather tell people the truth and the truth is that building a business online or offline is not for the faint of heart. Developing your home business on the internet will often times be very trying and this is exactly why you must develop the proper mindset to succeed.

So what is the proper mindset? Well, the above paragraphs obviously are an effort to give you the proper perspective, but there is more to it than just perspective. Probably the most important elements are:

  • Desire
  • Action
  • Imagination
  • Faith
  • Perseverance

Desire: You must know what you want. This is more than a goal, this is a “why” that comes from deep inside, deep within your soul. Times will be tough and you will have to have a real reason as to why you are doing this that will give you strength during momentary times of challenge.

Action: Better put some action behind what it is you want or you will never have it. Develop a plan of consistent effort.

Imagination: As you learn different marketing techniques and further develop the skills of a seasoned internet marketing professional you will get to a point where you will need to think outside of the box. Be bold with your ideas and transform them into new techniques.

Faith: Real faith, not just something you read about in a book, is more than believing in something. Faith is all about taking those steps into the unknown based on your belief in yourself and your plan. You may have to dig deep on the path to success, but you can do it and if you choose success, you will do it.

Perseverance: Don’t ever, ever, ever, quit. I believe I have said a couple of times now that times may get tough and you can bet that they will, but you have the ability to overcome those tough times as well. So many times people will stop just short of reaching their goals, when taking a few more steps would give them the lifestyle that they longed for. No matter what don’t quit, you may have to adjust your plan, but don’t give up on your “why.”

The Mindset to Succeed Process

Developing the mindset to succeed is a process, a perspective. Figure out what it is that you want, if you are willing to go get it, develop a plan, put forth the effort and work until you get there. That’s the mindset to succeed that will take you where you want to go.

The Compounding Effects of Consistency

the compounding effects of consistencyThe other night on my training call I mentioned something about taking a penny and doubling it, and subsequently whatever the sum was, every day and how much you would have at the end of the month. I know some of you have probably done this, but… just to make sure you didn’t think I was pulling your leg, I decided to show you and get you to understand how your own daily consistent efforts will pay off down the road.

Here is the information, I hope it makes you think:

Day 1: $.01
Day 2: $.02
Day 3: $.04
Day 4: $.08
Day 5: $.16
Day 6: $.32
Day 7: $.64  <—-  I love how you only have $.64 at the end of the first week!
Day 8: $1.28
Day 9: $2.56
Day 10: $5.12
Day 11: $10.24
Day 12: $20.48
Day 13: $40.96
Day 14: $81.92 <—- Weed 2 mark (is this really worth it?)
Day 15: $163.84
Day 16: $327.68
Day 17: $655.36
Day 18: $1,310.72
Day 19: $2,621.44
Day 20: $5,242.88
Day 21: $10,485.76 <— Week 3…OK, maybe this works.
Day 22: $20,971.52
Day 23: $41,943.04
Day 24: $83,886.08
Day 25: $167,772.16
Day 26: $335,544.32
Day 27: $671,088.64
Day 28: $1,342,177.28
Day 29: $2,684,354.56
Day 30: $5,368,709.12 <— Week 4 – So glad I stuck it out!

Of course, there are 31 days in a few months as well and that would add up to $10,737,418.24!

Just by doubling the penny and it’s sum every day for a month.

When people first start out online they have all of these illusions of quick and easy money and I can tell you that the reality doesn’t come anywhere near that, BUT…

…If you provide consistent effort, such as consistent posting of your capture page links, you will see huge results in a few weeks. If you start posting today, don’t call me up in 3 or 4 days and tell me this doesn’t work. What you have to keep in mind is that I and every other successful marketer started at the same place as you.

When I first started marketing online I didn’t have a clue. To be honest, some days I still feel like I don’t know much, but I do know one thing: Consistent effort will bring results and MASSIVE CONSISTENT EFFORT WILL BRING FORTH MASSIVE RESULTS!

This stuff is not rocket science, it’s not hard nor is it easy. The best thing to say is that it is achievable by anyone that truly has a desire to find online success. Don’t stop and don’t ever, ever quit. There can be a struggle to deal with at times, but it is a struggle that you will be rewarded for.
