Yesterday was Day 1 of my 30 Days of Email Madness event. Over the next 30 days, I will be “bringing it”, as the saying goes.
Lead generation, lead conversion, list building, leadership, posturing, positioning, persuasion techniques and, of course mindset will be the main courses for people on my list in the next 30 days.
If you're not on my list and you want to be part of this, simply send a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll won't miss out.
This is one of the few email messages that I will post on social media and here on my blog. The rest of the teachings will be limited to those on my list.
Today's lesson starts at the beginning… mindset and the idea that Success is a Process.
As I thought about where to start this event, my head was swimming with ideas.
Do I start with my best lead generation strategies, my income producing strategies, my list building strategies, or what?
I couldn't sleep last night thinking about it.
Like I often do, before I finally went to sleep, I asked for help in bringing clarity to my problem and when I woke up, there it was… the obvious answer.
Obviously you start…. at the beginning.
And the beginning for me…. the thing I had to get right before anything else…. was MINDSET.
Sure, you're thinking right now… not again!
Mindset! I've heard all I need to hear about that stuff.
You might be thinking… Mindset won't make me money!
And you'd be wrong…. dead wrong.
Because it's not until your head is straight and your heart is in the right place that you'll flourish in your business.
Really. I'm not kidding.
So over the next few days, we'll be talking about belief, passion, honesty and everything that I had to fix about my J-O-B mentality that held me back…..
It will be fun. I hope you have a few “aha” moments from the things I share,
Before I close, let me tell you what, for me, was one of the biggest mindset lessons I had to learn.
You may already know this… or maybe you think you do.
But alone at night, when things are going bad and results are slow, you may doubt it.
You may start listening to the voice inside your head, saying…
“You'll never be able to do this. Quit now before it's too late”.
If you hear this voice, as most of us do, it's because you've failed to understand this key mindset shift:
“Success is a Process”
The people you hear about who are ultra successful in your primary business are successful because they earned it.
They paid their dues, made their mistakes, kept going when most others quit.
THAT'S WHY they're on that stage getting an award. That's why they're among the top income earners.
It didn't just happened. It's a process. And the truth is this —
They're probably not any smarter than you.
They may work smarter, which we'll cover in a few days, but I doubt they have a higher IQ than the rest of us.
Nope, the truth is… they stayed in the game long enough to see the fruits of their labor.
They stayed in the game long enough to win.
Okay, if you're still with me, I am pleased. And honored.
And I want to give you this parting bit of wisdom from the late, great Jim Rohn (if you don't know about him, you should).
Jim said it all when he so eloquently taught…
“Becoming a millionaire isn't nearly as important as the PERSON YOU BECOME IN THE PROCESS.”
Think about that.
Success is a process… enjoy it. Enjoy the climb to the top. Because when you finally realize the success you crave, you'll
be a whole different person than you are right now.
Stay in the game.
- When you want to quit, don't.
- When obstacles are thrown in your path, move around them.
- When the results just aren't coming, dig in and learn why.
- When your marketing campaign flops, look for what you learned in the process.
Our daughter is a huge Miley Cyrus fan… and yesterday she sent me a link to a song called The Climb.
And after listening to this song, I came away with the thought that Miley Cyrus would make a very successful Network Marketer.
Why? Because in this song, the message comes through loud and clear that anything worth doing takes work, determination, and sacrifice…. and success is a process.
There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna want to make it move.
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose.
Ain't about how fast I get there.
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side….
it's a climb!
Success is a climb. It takes time.
There will be bumps along the way. Keep going.
Keep moving. Baby steps, giant steps…. doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter how fast you get there… but that you keep going.
Make a vow to yourself that you'll stay in the game long enough to find the success you seek.
It will happen for you! I have no doubt.
