I DO Need a New Mindset
Hello everybody,Thank You to Spend a Moment to Share Your Thoughts/Comments Below!
For so long I try to become a successful affiliate.
Not sure anymore but I guess I started this online Journey on May 2007...
Yes already 5 years ago.
As many many people I failed but learnt from those errors.
I started thinking Adsense would help me reach my first goals ($250 / mo).
At this time I was simply using Blogger blogs, nothing else.
It took me around 2 years to earn $100.
After that I discovered AB 2.0 but thought it was too complicated for me.
In December 2009, I launched a self hosted WordPress site
after a few months I earned $100-$200 / mo
When I outrsourced the backlinking building process
it made me up to $750 / mo (for a $200 /mo expense)
This year Panda took a lot of my success confiscating my #1 spot.
I started several others but without even finishing them.
Fed up with this permanent failure cycle, I started to analyze my own mindset.- Why am I so good in failing?
I noticed I fear to try, I do not like to take risks.
I am frightened to fail.
I have skills but I always see myself failing.
For now I cant stand up visualizing another failure, strange but true.
I must admit I lack of self-confidence.- What is repeating over & over again?
My professional life is far to be a huge success.
Last year I turned 40 yo & I still work as a temp (for almost 15 years now).
When I am not in a temp job, I have to reinvest my time & energy to find the next one.
As recession is everywhere it can be tough sometimes.
I never give up but I am one of the 2.9 millions people out of work in France.
I was out of work for 5 months before getting the current contract that will keep me busy until mid-September 2012.
Not only it is stressful but it also involves some financial problems.- How am I currently working?
Our lastest child is now 2 months old so I do my « online homeworks » in the kitchen where my wife watches TV.
Needless to say all this noise decreases my productivity.
I dream about renting an office a few minutes away from our house.
One problem I have is that I am too low:
I know I have to increase the speed.- What is my current strategy
As much as possible I reinvest to build a larger success.
I started extra sites.
The difficulty is to reinvest smartly as spare money is limited.- What is affecting me?
I can’t anymore say to my wife I am building websites.
She just sees this as a complete lack of time.
You know when someone tells you
if it was possible to earn money online everybody will do it!
All this negativeness affects me for sure.
We all need someone for inspiration.
& I can’t rely on my Dad all his life long he told:
- I should have done that
- I should have launched that business
- If only I did this...
He ended with tons of regrets
& never ever put into action any of his entrepreneur plans.
I dont wanna be like that! Oh no!
One of my goals was to meet major success & educate him just like Mark did.- Which thoughts are spoiling my productivity?
If I should find a reason for this permanent lack of self-confidence, I guess I should come back to my childhood.
Unfortunately I can't remember it as a enjoyable moment.
Rather a time of your life you wish to escape from.
I was not surrounded by love at this time & it has not helped me to build myself in a positive way.
Our Dad was violent & drunk very often (I ignore why but he suicided last year), I faced domestic violence belt weekly.
Even nowadays it is something I fight against.
I am Dad of 3 & refuse to become like that, I feel that anger in me.To conclude...
No doubt anymore, I MUST work on my mindset.
I have to build & display positive images of myself, my family & my business.
Some ideas may include:
- self confidence
- confidence to drive a car (I fear it even if I have a driving license)
- increasing speed
- throwing away aggressiveness
- taking risks
- feeling positive about the future
- renting an office close to our house
- attracting online cash through several income streams
- lose and maintain weight
- keep reinvesting in my online business
- keep giving 10% of my earning to http://www.kiva.orgQuestions for Mark/Staff/Members:
I dont find anymore the video & pdf telling how to reprogramm your mind in 3 months telling out loud an affirmation 5 minutes per day (based on Mark’s journey).
Where is that AB3 Bonus?
Which method is better the one mentioned above (5mins - 90days) or using Mind Movies?
If I use Mind Movies what would be better/more powerful (I am French): using the affirmations in English or translating them into French?Now please add your comments below!
