I guess you are wondering what a positive mindset has to do with generating leads and income for your business.
If there is a problem with the Internet, it’s that many people tell you it’s “easy” to make money quickly. Actually this is not so. It’s not easy at all, particularly to the newbie or beginner. But it really is possible to achieve a good successful Internet Marketing business within a short space of time – if you work at it. I call it a ‘do-it-yourself’ Internet Marketing start-up.
It won’t come to your doorstep without a bit of effort, but it is possible, and it can be done, providing you get the right help and advice.
It’s crucial to understand that adopting the correct mindset is the key. This won’t happen overnight; you will need to work at it.
Some people are born with a positive outlook on life, but most of us need to work to develop it. You must learn to sustain a positive attitude to understand you can fulfill your destiny of becoming successful, and therefore wealthy. Show me a successful person who does not have a positive attitude…
We all suffer from doubt, but hey – it’s doubt that stops us from starting.
Truly believe, and you will succeed. You will deal with any obstacles in your path, and you will achieve whatever you set out to do. It’s called SUCCESS.
You need not be the most intelligent, nor the most talented person. But you DO need remain positive, and you DO need to TAKE ACTION.
Here are a few pointers to help you get there:
Daily Task Management
Write a daily ‘to do list’ of things you need to achieve during that day. Then as you achieve each of those tasks you can cross it off the list, and feel a great sense of accomplishment in the process!
Motivational Goal Setting
Motivational goal setting is pretty essential in any business, but I believe particularly so in Internet Marketing. So you will need to actually write down your goals for the next week, next month, next year, as well as your daily tasks.
Secrets of Goal Setting
There really are no goal setting secrets. Mind you, it’s important to set realistic goals, and not write down a zany sentence such as ‘I will be a millionaire by this time next month’. Keep your written goals as practical as possible, but they should stretch you a little at the same time, otherwise there is little point in performing this exercise.
Remember, the right mindset is your key to success. You CAN fulfil your destiny and become successful – and wealthy!
Begin with one small step
Don’t let others stand in your way
Walk your own path
Some may laugh – so what
Many will follow
Don’t ever give up
Read motivational and self help books.
A recommended read is “The Midas Method” by Stuart Goldsmith. He writes a lot of common sense, and by the time you have gotten to the end of his book you will understand that “The Sky is the Limit”!
Another excellent eBook I would highly recommend is “Shattering the Myth” by Chris Farrell. It’s all about “Adopting the right mindset to make the Internet work for you”. You can download this eBook free at: http://www.maggie-recommends.com/shattering

Let’s be honest…Not everyone out there is Internet Marketing land is telling you the TRUTH.
REALLY ? You don’t say… Tell us something NEW, that we don’t know..
Ok, I will. Sailing around out there in that choppy sea of SCALLYWAGS, are some very MODEST purveyors of Internet marketing TRUTH…
Who are they – And why should you believe ME?
Ok, let’s rewind for a second and see why people exaggerate the truth in the first place in Internet Marketing or any Marketing come to think of it.. If you are producing an information product and you want to sell a 1000 copies (see, I’m exaggerating already), it’s going to be a hell of a lot easier to sell if you say something like “One Time LOSER teenage Affiliate Marketer turns a $100 Bill into a STAGGERING $400,000, in just 90 days” than it would be to say something like “A down on his luck teenager made a lot of money working his butt off all day and night for 90 days”
Distinct difference, eh?
you see, the MAGIC of Marketing is such that we need to have pretty FANTASTIC pictures painted in our minds for us. This is the motivating force that urges us to hit that “Add to Cart” button… We are buying into that DREAM…This is just GOOD Marketing, and their is nothing wrong with that.
Where it all goes horribly wrong, is when the product the person buys, cannot possibly live up to the outrageous CLAIMS being made about the product. Let’s be honest, some products are just downright RUBBISH. Some are a re-hash of another product, and some are just SO Bad, that the person who sold it probably had an ETHICAL by-pass at birth.
This doesn’t mean to say that every product claiming LARGE sums of money being made is NOT telling the truth. But it does not automatically mean that you will do the same. What works for one person may not work for YOU.
The ripple effect of such online SKULLDUGGERY is that people who buy these products in good faith, now think that ALL marketers out there are conniving SOBs, trying to part innocent unsuspecting people from their hard earned cash.
This of course, simply isn’t TRUE…
Now we do have the Trusted IM Report Card as a guide to help you in choosing people online to trust. This is not a definitive guide as their are many NEW up and coming trusted marketers on the Internet that don’t yet feature in this guide.
But I did promise you some recommended Marketers who you can both Trust and deal with knowing that you will NOT be ripped off. Marketers who you can follow with confidence, and whose reputations are such, that they will guide you through that CHOPPY sea and guide you down the path to your Internet Marketing goals without the fear of getting taken for a ride.

Katie Freiling - Blogger, Personal Development & Attraction Marketing Expert
Jason Fladlien Blogger – Internet Marketer
This is not a definitive list by any means, as their are hundreds of trusted Internet Marketers out there. The above 6 people, are people I have personally dealt with over the last few months and can personally recommend them.
SO, why listen to me ? Well, 6 months ago, I had never written a blog or done any Affiliate marketing or anything like that. I have had a couple of Internet Businesses before, one was eBay related and the other was a Horse Racing Tipster business. But my Marketing efforts were pretty bad and I had never ceated a Blog or Website before.
Today, I work full time, building an online income from home. I write this Blog, adding Money Making Tips & Tricks every day. I am in constant contact with Marketers who are HOT, Happening and are changing the Internet with Ethical products that make people MONEY.. I am proud to be a part of that…
You can get Internet Savvy by listening to the RIGHT people and NOT giving in to all the HYPE & CLAPTRAP out there !
If it sounds TOO good to be TRUE… it probably is!
Have a GREAT day….
See you tomorrow
