There was once a young boy who wanted to find his purpose and his fortune. By young, I’m meaning early twenties, that age when the world is your oyster and you’re working on trying and testing things to check out the rules and work out where you fit. The age when things are possible and boundaries are there to be pushed. Do you remember that time?
Of Course He Googled it
In his thirst for information on what he could do with his life, how he could create a wealthy and happy lifestyle he went on to the internet and began his search.
He looked at what others were doing and in his enthusiasm he signed up for a course on Social Media, a course on Internet Marketing, a course on product creation.
Each time he completed a course, there would be something new to learn. Something more interesting and exciting with bigger promises of success.
And in his searching and learning and trying here and there he was gaining lots of experience yet earning zero dollars towards his ‘perfect life’.
Have you heard this story Before? Can you relate?
The boy was growing disheartened and disillusioned and branded it all lies.
He’d been chasing the new ‘shiny objects’ and hadn’t completed anything.
Worse than that he had failed to work on the fundamentals of choosing his own area of expertise, and identifying who he wanted to help.
Even more fundamental he hadn’t stopped to look at his own beliefs about success and money and hadn’t realised that without these being in the right place he was doomed to mediocre or worse.
- Choose your area of expertise and work with it alone for around two years (so make sure it’s something you’re interested in and passionate about)
- Be clear about your objectives, goals and measures
- Know who your audience is
- Believe in yourself and your passion and your vision for your success (doubt can kill any dream) – work on your success and money mind-set
- Stay motivated and be persistent
- Follow one lot of training, work with one coach or mentor that you trust to keep you accountable and get you results
- Do the work, be disciplined
- Engage, give value and build trust and credibility within your community
- Always have your mind focused on what you want. Be tunnel visioned. At the same time take notice of feedback from your audience.
- Take action and ask for help and for calls to action to get you the results you are looking for
