Without this particular mindset, I struggled for years. I could never “get things going.”
I wrote hundreds of blog posts, I attended live events, I purchased products, I joined “top-leader” downlines, I made some videos, I’ve listened to audios, multiple times over, for countless hours…
But there was always something missing.
When I’d buy a product that was supposed to get results, there was always something else to buy on the back end.
I hit 5 consecutive years of roadblocks! Crazy right?
Let’s call it, experience. Lol
Here’s some more “experiences.”
I quit my job, and went full-time in an industry I knew nothing about. Spent probably, 15,000 dollars my first year. Things came to a grinding halt after about, 16-18 months and I was faced with a foreclosure, bankruptcy, car repossession, and to top it all off, we were expecting another baby!
To say that we were frazzled would be a massive under-statement.
Here’s another one, you might have heard before… My up-line didn’t help me, they never even called me back… Lol
Still at this point, I had not understood this one thing.
It wasn’t until I had dropped completely out of the loop, parked my accounts, and forgot all of my passwords. That I decided to quietly, plug back in, and start trying to figure this whole online marketing thing out again.
It was definitely a tough sell to my wife, but I had enough in front of me to at least, start marketing some affiliate programs.
I got back to a point where I was listening to audios everyday again, creating content, and getting back into momentum.
April finally came around, and we decided to partner up. (It was truly a blessing at this point). She was going to be the supportive spouse, and I was turning my funnels and websites back on.
And then it hit me, I’d always gotten to a point in the past where I’d start to do something and only get so far and then I’d stop. I’d stop and look back at what I’d just created, or accomplished. And I’d marvel.
And then I’d wait for approval. From the marketplace, from my wife, from my followers. And I’d wait so long that eventually I would just have to start over.
My problem was, that I wasn’t thinking big enough!
I’d really only reach out to 2 people a day. Sometimes none! At least personally. And I definitely wasn’t consistent.
This revelation came while I was in a live course. We purchased a course on Instagram marketing, and were attending the weekly trainings. And then implementing what we’d learned, and then putting ourselves out there to get critiqued by “the experts.”
I remember thinking that, wow, this is a lot of work. But it wasn’t not doable. We were getting leads. Not a bunch, but it was starting to get consistent. The wheels were definitely turning.
Here’s a few more thoughts I’d had. “Wow, that’s a lot of people.” “Wow, that’s a lot of content.” “Wow, that’s a lot of leads.”
I was reaching out and connecting with hundreds of people a day. Instead of the 0-2. I was finally reaching the masses. I realized that connecting was a lot simpler than I was making it. LOL
The purpose of my marketing was to connect. All of it.
So the answer is, get your stuff in front of more people. That’s all. Use tools, get creative, learn copy-writing. Find people that are successful at what you want to be successful at and emulate them. Heck, I would even say that most of them will help you for free.
Th answers are out there. You just have to be willing to put yourself out there.
