During the writing of the series I have been constantly confronted with “writers remorse”. There is just so much more that I should be giving you that I just can’t in a 300 word Blog post. I just don’t have the time to give. I’m too busy trying to earn an income Online.
With this in mind, we start anew!
I want to talk to you this week about the proper mindset for yourself as an Internet Marketer. I’ve never really been one to buy into the “Power” of positive thinking. If your plane is going to crash, I’m not real sure you can “think” your way clear of a really bad accident. Perhaps you should have taken the train instead …… I digress!
Thinking positive makes you feel good, no doubt about it. The greatest benefit to positive thinking is that it gives you a better chance to correctly interpret opportunities. It is also a lot of fun to socially interact with positive folks.
If you are not earning the type of income Online that you would like, ask yourself if you are spending enough time being positive with yourself and how you can help others.
However, no amount of positive thinking will change the minds of the other persons that you deal with on a daily basis, and this can be a real killer. Negative People Kill! Not only figuratively but actually.
Negative people do bad things to other people. You see it every day. It would be really, really nice, if you could avoid this stupid shit, but that is not the way of the world.
Having said that, you are now left with the task to “make a difference in others lives” that are around you. Oh joy!
Here’s the issue with that …… half really, really need you and will buy your products. The other half, are just down-right out to get ya! That would include the SaltyDroid ( Jason Jones has an Alexa ranking of 45,000 and claims you can’t make a living Online. What’s wrong with this picture? ), the FTC and friends, and everyone in between.
I don’t want to get too far off the track here with the “Time Vampires” ( I truly don’t have the space within my database to store it all ), but suffice it to say, that whatever it is that you do Online, you are going to be challenged. I don’t know of an Internet Marketer worth his salt …… if you will excuse the pun, that has not been sued by someone over something and been forced into bankruptcy at one time or another. This indeed is the reality of earning an income Online.
Of course this is not the fate of all Internet Marketers. However, those that take the biggest risks are the ones that receive the biggest rewards. Reason being, not many want to take the risk and chance getting blown away in court.
I understand that Apple is in court with the FTC over E-Book price-fixing as I write this. OK, so Apple charged a buck over prime for it’s E-Books. Well, if you think about it …… that’s a lot of E-Books. And while you won’t find me hiding under my bed with my iPad, a hefty fine is in order. Only problem is, that more than likely, the FTC will get the fine money not those that were overcharged.
I’m not singling out the FTC here, after all they stepped-in and put an end to the “Jeff Paul’s – Shortcut To Internet Millions” fiasco with a judgement of $478 Million in August of 2012. Thank You FTC! ( Easy as E-Mail and No Website Needed. Come on Jeff Paul, give us a break! )
Remember what I said about being Greedy & Stupid; it’s a bad combination!
I hope you can see the challenge in staying “Positive” in such an environment. If it ain’t one thing it’s your mother!
I want to make this clear, unless you are ready to offer awesome products, give it up and get a job! This work is not for the faint of heart. It’s hard work! If it were easy, everyone would be making the big bucks.
If you do have awesome products to offer then it is your obligation to offer yourself up to whomever needs your help. In other words grab a mitt and get in the game, roll-up your sleeves and get involved for goodness sake. The world is in a terrible state, you know this. It really needs your help! Providence did not give you your gifts for you to waste them. Once you come to that realization, stop killing time on Facebook and get to work making a difference in other peoples lives with your work Online.
You are not always going to succeed at what you do Online, however, I can’t think of any better way to define Positive Thinking for the Internet Marketer then to get out there and make a positive difference in the lives of those that are your clients!
