When you think about the highest earning business coaches, entrepreneurs and internet marketing business owners what comes to mind?
Charisma, experience, and expertise are often at the top of the list, but would it surprise you to know that those are not the most important characteristics?
In fact, while those things do help attract and keep an audience, there’s one thing that is absolutely critical to their success, and you can’t even see it.
It’s true. In everything you do, whether in business or in life, your mindset is the determining factor when it comes to your success.
Your internet marketing plans are no different.
Without the right mindset, you may find confusion, doubt, lack of focus, discouragement and inaction to be your constant companions. These are not guys you want to hang around with if you want to succeed online!
To create your own internet marketing success you need to be equipped to do several things. First you must be able to learn about what really works online. Then you want to make good decisions and plans based on what you learn. Next, its important follow that up with the right actions that lead to success.
So before you can realize your dreams of four-figure clients, you have to do some internal work.
Getting inside the minds of leaders in internet marketing just makes sense. You’ll want to make some changes to your own mindset, to be more in line with what the top earners in your industry already do and feel.
One thing most successful marketers have in common is a good attitude.
Think about it; you’ll never see top internet marketers complaining about how the kids are sick, “again!” or that the cable repair guy is 40 minutes late, or even that the car blew a tire.
Instead, you see their expressions of gratitude in everything.
If the kids are sick, they’re grateful to have a business that allows them to stay home and play nurse. If the cable guy is late, they’re grateful to have 40 extra minutes to read a book instead of watch television. And if the car died in the middle of running a week’s worth of errands, they’re happy to have found a mechanic who does great work at a reasonable price.
If you find yourself complaining—even in your head—turn your attitude around. There’s nearly always something to be grateful for, even in the worst situations. And when you can rethink and revise your attitude for the better, you’ll not only be happier, but you’ll attract a better audience, too.
Here’s something else top-end internet marketing business owners have in common: Confidence.
They believe in what they do.
They believe in their ability to help others achieve the same thing. When they offer a free teaching, post to their blog, walk on stage or join a webinar they are filled with the knowledge that what they are about to say will change the lives of those who are listening.
It’s not cocky or arrogant, it’s just confidence. And if you don’t have it yet, you can take steps to increase it.
Start by asking yourself, in any new or uncomfortable situation, “What’s the worst that could happen?” Of those worst-case scenarios, resolve what you have control over, and let the rest go.
So if you’ve agreed to speak in front of a small group of business owners, and your fear is that you’ll flub your speech, practicing beforehand will greatly improve your confidence.
Next, get inside the head of someone who is confident in what you’re about to do. Walk onto that stage as if you’ve been doing it for years, and not only will you feel more confident, but you’ll be more confident.
You can use the “as if” attitude in everything from creating a new blog post to closing a sale.
Whenever you feel your confidence failing, just remember to act as if you’ve done this successfully hundreds of times.
Just like how the person you’re talking to on the phone can hear a smile in your voice, your readers and potential customers can sense your mindset. It comes through in everything you write and say. If it’s not up to the standards of the top earners in your niche, you’ll struggle to make the sale. Work on your attitude and confidence levels, and watch your income soar.
You’ll even find that having confidence will effect how you respond to you!!! You read that right. When you are learning a new skill online that you need to learn to grow your business if you have confidence that you CAN learn it your chances of really mastering the skill and using it successfully will sky rocket!
So take these simple steps to improve your attitude with gratitude, always seek to enrich your customer, and grow your confidence. By doing these simple things you will attract and keep more committed buyers. You will also find you’ll be sharing your day with better companions – Focus, Decisiveness, Enthusiasm, Action and Success!
