Talk to most online entrepreneurs who have seen a great deal of success and they’ll all tell you one thing – mindset matters. In fact, it’s often the one thing that can make or break your success.
Self-doubt, worry, and other sabotaging emotions can prevent you from achieving your goals and building a profitable brand. So you want to not only learn about the technologies and selling strategies needed to cultivate your success, but also develop and nurture the mental fortitude to help you push through obstacles and attract affiliates and customers alike.
Identifying & Clearing Self-Limiting Beliefs
Before you can spruce up your mindset, you have to clean out the clutter. That means getting rid of any limiting beliefs that can harm your potential. It’s time for a clean slate. Once you have a clean slate, you’ll either feel fully capable of your abilities as an online entrepreneur – or you’ll gain the clarity to see that you’re not cut out for this business.
It may sound counter-intuitive to hear that you need to learn whether or not you’re right for this industry, but it’s better to discover that early on than to continue pursuing a career that keeps you mired in pain.
What you may not want to admit is that much of this pain you’re experiencing as you try and fail at online marketing is self-inflicted. Once you encounter anything bad, it tends to stick around and taint any positive possibilities in the future.
And most people don’t let go of stuff easily or quickly. They like to relive it and continue the dialogue in their heads with excuses and discussions about why something happened and what they could have done to change it.
All this does is keep your mindset mired in muck. It needs to be shelved so that you can move on with a clear head and focus on what you do want to see happen. This “dirty surface” in your mind is filled with emotions that aren’t helpful.
They include things like anger, shame, guilt, frustration and confusion. You might be mad that you got ripped off in the past, ashamed that others are grasping things you’re not, guilt at not bringing in enough income for your family, frustration at being overwhelmed and so on.
