A great man (Napoleon Hill) once said –
What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
And if you can make this the core belief in your life. This is one of the best quotes from Napoleon Hill’s classic “Think and Grow Rich” which was published back in 1937. Till this day, this is still one of the best self-help books in the world. If you haven’s read this already, I highly recommend you go and get yourself a copy and read this book. I have also listed this in my resources section as a top source for mindset for a reason. In fact, I highly recommend you go through the whole Resources section and use as many of them as you can.
Getting Started Online
If you are just getting started online, you are probably unsure if making money online is even possible. Well, it certainly is, and there are thousands of people who are making a living with it. And if you follow everything I post in this blog you will too. To be able to make a passive income online you will need to believe you can do it and you are half way there.
There are plenty of ways you can make money online. You can start a blog, do affiliate marketing, create a service site, get started with Fiverr, start an e-commerce business, make youtube reviews, start an SEO agency and the list goes on. I will make separate posts for each of these and a lot more so don’t worry if you unfamiliar with some of these concepts. Alright, let’s jump on to the mindset and beliefs that are crucial for your success.
10 MUST HAVE Beliefs
It’s okay to fail
I will be honest with you, the first few ventures you start whether it’s an Amazon affiliate site or a CPA campaign with Facebook ads you will probably fail. And not just the first time, you will have quite a few failed ventures, and it’s perfectly fine. I have had countless failed ventures over the years. And I am grateful that I did because every time I failed, I learned from my mistakes.
You don’t have to reinvent the wheel
You may think that when you start doing something you have to do something new or create something revolutionary. The fact of the matter is you don’t. You just have to copy what other successful people are doing, just better than them.
“No” does not necessarily mean no.
There will be times when people will say no to your ideas, but you have to keep on trying. Persistence is one of the best traits you can have in your arsenal. For example, a CPA network might not accept you on your first try but if you keep trying and give them enough reason to do so, you will certainly get accepted.
Believe in yourself, even when others don’t
This is probably the biggest struggle people face when trying to create an online business. In your early days, when you don’t have a substantial income you will get a lot of doubters. You will hear terms like “get a real job” or “it doesn’t work,” ignore all of this. The only thing that matters is what you believe in.
Give it your all
Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have other sources of income. You certainly should but make sure you give everything you have when you are trying to achieve a certain goal.
Accept the hate
You will come across two types of people when you start getting success. The first group will be very motivated by you and will want to join you. And the second group of people who will get very envious of your success. Don’t let them get to you because when you start getting hate it just means you are more successful than them.
It all starts with an idea
An idea or thought is like a virus, resilient, highly contagious and the smallest seed of an idea can grow to define you or destroy you. You have to understand that when you take action upon your ideas, you can make great things happen.
If you think you are beaten, you are.
No one can put you down until you think you are down and out for the count. As long as you keep trying there will always be a glimmer of hope but the moment you think that you have been beaten, you really are.
Competition is good
If you see a lot of competition in your niche or whatever it is you are doing, it only means that it’s that much more profitable. When there is a lot of competition, you should certainly go for that niche as there is certainly a lot of money to be made if a bunch of people are putting all their resources and time in it.
Persistence is the key to getting everything you want
Without persistence, you will be defeated, even before you start. With persistence, you will win. With persistence will come success. If one does not possess persistence, one does not achieve noteworthy success in any calling. Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond to definite plans, backed by definite desires, through constant persistence.
You can never have too many backup plans
I cannot assess this enough as this will guarantee that no matter how hard you fall, you can always get back up. Even when everything is going as smoothly as it possibly can, things can go from 100 to 0 real quick. Often opportunity comes disguised as misfortune or temporary defeat.
There you have it. Ten core beliefs that will guarantee success in not just your online ventures but life in general. Have anything else to add? Please share your thoughts in the comments below!
