Haaaaapppy Saturday! 😀
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend but still doing some kind of action to get closer to their goals.
We had a relaxing morning by the pool, then did our workout, then did our work. A great and productive day. Accomplishment feels great, doesn’t it?
My topic today is taken from Chapter 8 of the book “The Master-Key to Riches” by Napoleon Hill. How can you tell your friends from your enemies? Do you know that? No? Yes?
My topic today relates to what I learnt this weekend at the “Don’t be a wussy” event in Denver. As promised to you, I will try to relay the knowledge I gained form you this week.
First of all, did you check out the blog post yesterday? If not, stop reading right NOW and go look at it. It’s important you take that step before anything else. You can find yesterday’s blog post HERE.
So… if you read yesterday’s post we can begin with the next step!
Vick Strizheus, my mentor and creator of Big Idea Mastermind, is the guy who taught me what I am about to teach you. I have actually been doing part of this for maybe 7 months now. However, just hearing him explain it all again in person made me grasp the importance of it even more. And I have tweaked my approach to this since then.
A lot of people get frustrated when they don’t see results overnight. They join an internet marketing business and think that they are going to wake up rich the next day. Well, they are in for a huge disappointment. Internet marketing is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. Just like any other business it takes time to build up. You need to invest some time and money into it for it to become the full time(but flexible and fun) career it can be. With full time I mean it can be your ONLY income if you apply the information and training you get properly. Top Earners use about 2-4 hours per day on their business. That’s it. NO, stop it! Don’t for a second think that they are any different from you. YOU CAN BE JUST AS SUCCESSFUL! We all start from the same point. From scratch. We all have to learn how to become successful individually. Luckily, within the Big Idea Mastermind network we are all extremely excited when we can be of assistance to others. If you are brand new to internet marketing – we are there with massive support to help you succeed.
We want to see each and one of our team members be successful internet marketers that can choose for themselves exactly how they want to spend their time and their life. That’s what we are here for! We fulfill dreams!
To start your own business online – all you need to begin is $25 for Big Idea Mastermind/Empower Network. $25 – if you “can’t afford it”, this is nothing for you. There is ALWAYS a way to make something happen if you want it enough. If your desire and dreams are strong enough. $25 equals a big lunch or a night at the movie theatre. It just comes down to priorities.
If you create your own online business – yes you have to work on it and build it up like any other serious business – but you will eventually be able to live life on your own terms.. and isn’t that what we all really want?
OK, sorry – I lost track here for a minute.. Back to the “lesson” of today..
Now, Vick has been extremely successful with his internet marketing career. He has been working on this for about eight years now, seven of which have been very successful. If you are going to listen to any advice from anyone within this field – with him is a great place to start.
This weekend he gave us his very own recipe for success with internet marketing:
1. READ daily – at least 30 minutes reading and 30 minutes listening to someone:
– What?: books ton the subject of personal development are recommended (This could be of Napoleon Hill, James Allen, Dale Carnegie, Maxwell Maltz, Zig Ziglar). You can also listen on audio books and/or watch videos on youtube etc within the topics you are trying to progress. If you are a member of EN/BIM you get loads of valuable training in your back office.
-Why? If you want to be successful in ANYTHING you have to work on yourself, know what you want and make clear intentions. Know how to work with your mind to make it work for you.
2. Spend 1-2 hours EACH DAY where you research your field. Shut off all Facebook, chats, phone etc and only work on research for what you are trying to do. If this is internet marketing – use search engines, blogs, youtube, pinterest, stumble upon etc to look for new ways to market your business.
-Why? This is how you can unlock your own tools for promoting your business. Find something that everyone else isn’t using. Use your creativity and create something new!
3. Apply what you learned. Use what you learned in the previous hours that day. If it’s some new knowledge from reading or listening to others – write a blog post about… or make a list or schedule(or whatever you may have learnt.. use it!). If it’s new traffic source – try it! PS. always start SMALL SCALE on new traffic sources – make sure they are effective and actually convert before you scale it up.
Finally – BE CONSISTENT! Keep working on this every day. Don’t take a break and don’t give up. As mentioned before, building a successful business takes more than one night.
Don’t you want a business you can have for the rest of your life?
Don’t you want to make your own hours and spend more time with the family?
Don’t you want to cut down work to about 2-3 hours per day and make more money than you do today?
Don’t you want to travel the world and live life NOW?
If this is what you want – Big Idea Mastermind can help YOU! You can get rid of any financial troubles you may have, you can achieve your deepest goals in life – but you have to be willing to take this as the serious business it is.
I hope you found this helpful. Please let me know with your comments below!
I am sharing a video with you today where some of the top earners within internet marketing is telling you what could be the key to your success with making money online. Tracey Walker and Vick Strizheus giving you their success advice.
This is great advice if you are just starting out with internet marketing and you are not quite sure how to handle it. Starting your own business online can be very overwhelming so make sure you look for advice from those already succeeding. Find those who are where you want to be and LEARN from them.
It will make your journey a lot easier and more efficient!
I hope you found this helpful!
Wait, you jumped from Day 8 to Day 12? You cheated on your challenge!!?
Nope, I didn’t. But my videos in between were posted on my other Empower Network blog.
Watch them HERE
Day 12/90 –
Got stuck in traffic this morning and started seeing how the chain effects of that delay could impact my day and all that I needed to do. The result? You’re getting a “live-from-traffic” video today.
Anyways, topic of today is Self-Reliance. We have two parts of self-reliance, one is self-deprecation and the other is self-conceit.
With self-deprecation you believe in preconceived notions about what you may or may not be good at, putting limits to your life and ideas. You would be literally strangling your dreams.
Self-conceit on the other hand makes you believe that you don’t need anyone, you become boastful and arrogant.
Both of these two can be very damaging for your chances of becoming successful. Work on it, be aware and control them so that you can open up a way of getting to where you want to be.
Went on a run this morning and it was the longest run I’ve done for at least the last 2 years! I used to be in a bad spot.. At some point I even smoked a pack of cigarettes per day. Since I started working on my mindset and my personal growth, things have changed.
Life feels brighter and happier for each day!
Topic of today relates to this and how I want you to NOT be a shell of yourself(like that cool sculpture we found at the Hirshorn Sculpture Garden). We were just walking by and spotted it, felt like it would be a good image to put up for the topic of the day(plus I was dying from my run and needed a break!)
Work on yourself, expand yourself and make sure you utilize all you can of your abilities.
It feels AWESOME.
Have a great Sunday evening!
Wow, I can’t believe it is day 7 already… Kinda scary how fast time passes sometimes.
I have had 7 days of making one video per day. It’s been good but also very challenging at times. Some days I know exactly what I want to tell you guys. Other days I have to dig deep to think of what you would find interesting or valuable. PLEASE if you have a preference on what direction you want me to take in these videos, topics etc, let me know.
I have also had 7 days of my new workout regime. I have a set of exercises I have to do each single day.. Same things, every day.. but some exercises I increase reps/sets per day, others I increase per week.. I already feel stuff happening so we’ll see how I will feel in 90 days! woooh
Anyways, I’m losing track here.. Topic of today is one that fascinates me… How your environment can affect your ability to reach your goals. How you should surround yourself with likeminded people who aim for the same accomplishments as yourself, and how by doing this you can be so much more successful! Get together, work together for the common goal and see how much smoother it gets.
I have to say that the world wide web has made this world so much smaller for me, and helped me connect with other likeminded people from all over the place! Through my blog, twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.. It makes it easier to connect and grow.
So, that’s all for today folks!
