When I ask people why they started their own online business, the usual answer is something along the lines of...
“I want to be a millionaire!”
But aside from everything else, have you ever asked yourself, “Do I have the mindset of a millionaire…?”
This new blog post will outline the same internet marketing mindset techniques that Richard Branson and Bill Gates use to pull in more money in one day than most people do in a YEAR…
But what exactly is the difference between the mind of an internet marketing millionaire and ‘other’ members of society?
1) Surround Yourself In Positivity
At the risk of sounding like a complete hippy…
One of the most damaging things you could ever possibly do is to be negative in life.
Yes, I’m talking about those people who destroy every hope or dream you’ll ever have, by saying “it’ll never work out”, or “you have some crazy ideas, don’t be so silly”.
This mindset is practically success suicide, as you’re constantly under self-defeat. How will you succeed in being rich beyond your wildest dreams if you never tried?
There’s thousands, if not millions of people out there who have nowhere near the opportunities that you have if you’re reading this blog post right now, who’d KILL to be able to escape their mundane everyday life.
So not only should you surround yourself in other people who have this positive mindset, but practice positivity yourself. Be proactive.
Instead of cursing at a bad situation, see the GOOD in things. This helps develop an analytic mind, as these bad situations often offer a better insight into the future.
Also, how can you apply this to Internet Marketing?
Let’s say you’re having trouble installing a WordPress blog on your own website. Of course you’d be annoyed because of the loss of time, but if you keep being annoyed forever then things will never get fixed. Instead, use this experience in a positive way.
Go and FIND someone to install it FOR you. Use the good ol’ Google Search to find a solution to your problems.
Be proactive and find a solution, even if it means e-mailing your hosting company and asking for their help.
Then in future, you’ll have learnt how to overcome the situation, and many others like it.
This is just one of MANY examples you’ll come across in your Internet Marketing journey. But remember to apply this positivity and see each experience as a positive one – or a lesson in life and Internet Marketing.
Sir Richard Branson failed in business five times before becoming successful.
Where would he be now if he gave up? Not where he is today, that’s for sure.
Determination, in my opinion, is the most CRUCIAL trait to have in Internet Marketing.
Everybody wants super-fast results overnight, and that’s why most products which promote this concept generate short-term income due to the customers wanting the same thing.
Yes, you do hear about how teenage kids make their thousands of dollars in a few days, but most of the time, that is not strategic planning or internet marketing skills… It’s luck.
Being in the right place at the right time, and knowing the right people. And that still applies to everyone today.
If you stay determined for long enough, that right time will come to YOU, and then it will be YOUR chance to shine.
However, if you drop out and give up before this time has a chance to come to you, then don’t complain that you didn’t get anywhere, bitterly blaming anything and everything around you.
A common idea which has been explained by MANY successful Internet Marketers is that as long as you make progress each day, no matter HOW SMALL, you’re climbing the ladder to success.
So ask yourself… What have you done today to climb that ladder?
When you were young and you wanted somebody to join you in the latest craze, or your latest hobby… What did you do?
Most likely, you showed PASSION about the subject which reflected onto the other people and they got inquisitive. This then led to them joining you in the latest craze and/or hobby (I know this definitely happened with Pokemon cards at the time!).
Do you see how this can be applied to Internet Marketing?
If you show rock hard confidence and determination to your product and BELIEVE it is the best thing to ever walk the internet, then this passion shows through and actively INVOLVES the reader. This then helps them to trust you, meaning sales become easier.
Also, this is not only applicable to Internet Marketing. When you show enough passion for something, you instantly become the LEADER in the field, meaning that you will gain the respect of your friends/colleague. This helps success come easier due to the fact that people believe in you and instantly become motivated due to your high passion for success.
This can also be applied to recruiting affiliates for your product/service. They aren’t going to promote a product or service that you’re not even excited about, because this makes them believe that you haven’t put any effort into making the product the best around.
So if you don’t bother, then why should they?
Ok, so the last killer Internet Marketing mindset trait is…
4) Taking Action
Here lies the most common reason for failure in Internet Marketing – the ability to take action.
If you’ve been researching more information like this or using the tools inside any of our programs, you’ll no doubt have access to a TON of information to help you succeed and finally make the income you deserve.
But here’s the difference…
Those who blankly stare at the information and re-read it every day… And those who actually start implementing these proven techniques.
Guess who makes the most money?
You got it. The one who takes the action!
Experience is the greatest education, and also teaches some things which could never be wrote down or recorded.
(Plus, you don’t make an income from keeping an idea in your head forever.)
So why not take action yourself and start building your income today?
P.S. What do YOU think are the most important mindset traits of an Internet Marketer?
