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

Are your habits killing you – do you suffer from lack of motivation?
By Keith Everett
There is a lot of advice going around on various ways to get motivated for 2011, some good, some bad. I’m no expert on personal development and I don’t possess any certificates to say that I am, however – I have been around the block a few times and have made all the classic mistakes.
If you are entering the Internet Marketing business and you have problems getting started online through lack of motivation, then this could be for you. Or even if you aren’t a newbie, you could still be suffering from NEVER START disease.
What is this disease?, it’s the disease of doing lots of STUFF but never getting anywhere, motion, movement – whatever you want to call it only creates results if focused properly, otherwise you are just creating NOISE…
Apart from burning your bed or chaining yourself to your computer, here are some sensible ways to get out of the starting blocks and get motivated in 2011. As the doomy gloomy weather continues in many places around the world, it’s not only people’s noses and throats that are getting bunged up with cold (me included)
People’s brains are starting to wither and their motivation can start to WILT.. Here is a list of 9 tips I hope will help to get you some mental VIAGRA to your brain..
Step 1) Fix firmly in your mind, what exactly is your overall goal for 2011, commit this to paper and list the Monthly, Weekly & Daily steps you intend
to take to achieve this goal.
Step 2) Each night before you go to bed, make a list of everything you intend to achieve the next day and write it down on a pad
Allot a specific time limit to each task,finish the task in the time allotted and you must complete the task in one sitting, .ie no breaks or other distractions. This will start to create HABIT…with positive habits, you will begin to get more done everyday!
Always ask yourself, is what I’m doing REALLY moving me forward toward my ultimate 2011 goal, if not – don’t do it. Too many people spend a large part of the day “FUMBLING”.. i.e moving sheets of paper around, answering email and facebooking for fun…
OK, I admit I love facebooking for FUN but I do a little, then move on, and so on.
Step 3) Each day, keep a log of your progress that day and comment on how this day has influenced your progress in achieving your main 2011 Goal, commit this information into a diary with days and hours listed, review this diary daily..
Step 4) Remind yourself daily (every hour) what it is you will have achieved by December the 31st 2011, keep reminding yourself by placing pictures of your ultimate 2011 Goal in places people tend to spend rest time, i.e Bathroom, Bedroom & Lounge.. and always keep a reminder above your desk…
Step 5) Form an alliance of 3/4 people who have similar goals to you, either on Skype or Facebook with the intentions that each member should daily be checking up on each others progress within the group, even if it is just a text message as a “prompt”
Step 6) If you are more productive in the morning, why not get up an hour earlier each day before you go to work and spend an hour working on your goal. If you must, go to bed an hour later the night before to compensate.
Step 7) Take everything out of your daily routine that is NOT helping you toward your ultimate goal. i.e overeating, excessive TV watching, excessive spending… SEX… LOL! who put that in there?
Step 8) Form NEW Habits… if your daily routine is NOT making you RICHER, HAPPIER, HEALTHIER etc… change your existing habits and REPLACE them with NEW habits.. I can honestly say, my daily food routine was PIZZA, Pies, Sausages and other Crap, I have since replaced with new fresh fruits, nuts & grains. Not only do I enjoy my meals more but I feel more ALIVE, and I have more energy & motivation… are your habits KILLING you? Are you going to get to the end of 2011 to achieve your Goal.
Step 9) OK, here is my last tip to get motivated in 2011 and it for me is the biggest.. UNCLUTTER your life, one
of the reasons people get confused, de-motivated and almost give up is because they feel they
have to learn everything at once… especially in Internet Marketing
This can result in becoming overwhelmed & disillusioned. Believe me I have been there. Focus on one thing at a time. You don’t have to learn everything at once, if you try you will be treading the path to FAILURE..
Learn one thing at a time, declutter your life, your desktop, your computer, your brain, start to see the wood form the trees, focus on one thing at a time, once you have mastered that, start something else that’s relative.
Just one final thought – do things that make your palms sweat and give you stomach cramps now and again, being “safe” and secure is nice and “warm” but rarely gets you to where you want to go or to what you want to achieve… If things aren’t working for you, change them – even if they seem scary now, the chances are they will not be scary at all once you have done them..
There you go, That is my little list of things to hopefully get you off the uncluttered road, onto a clear pathway, with every step adding a notch on your bedpost toward your ultimate 2011 Goal I have a lot of MIND Boggling lol! information to come both here on Keith’s Money Making Tips and my new project (opening soon) Ask The Tipster
Have an ASTOUNDING 2011.. I’m up for it, whose with me?
