Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life
For this post I’m trying something different.
I haven’t planned anything at all to share with you. Nope, I’m just winging it and seeing what comes out.
Why am I doing this?
Well, I’ve been sitting here thinking about what to base this week’s post around and I found that, for some reason, I just couldn’t decide.
Now, anyone who knows a little about me may know that I write stuff down a lot. Whenever I get an idea for something that could be good for a blog post, video, e-mail headline or whatever, I write it down. I have ideas for blog content for at least the next three months!
However, I just couldn’t settle on what to actually choose for this week’s post.
So, I thought, “You know what? I’m just going to start writing and see happens.”
Now, I have to admit that I do have a point to make regarding this, although the point didn’t actually come to me until after I’d come up with the idea of just writing off the cuff.
The point is this:
“I don’t know what to write about”.
“I’m not good at writing”.
“I get stuck”.
“How can I come up with ideas for good content?”.
The thing is, all these can lead to a common result:
I could have sat here all night and agonised over what to write about and, although I have plenty of stuff on my list, I could very well have become frustrated and ended up doing nothing.
Instead I decided to show you that, even without a clear plan, sometimes you can still get results.
By taking ACTION.
Look, if you’re the type of person who isn’t doing things because you “don’t know how”, or “you can’t think of anything” then I say to you this:
Stop messing around and DO something about it!
Now, I know that it would be unreasonable to expect you to do something you don’t know how to do. But guess what? You can learn! So go ahead and learn!
And so what, if your writing isn’t very good or your video manner leaves a lot to be desired or you haven’t mastered how to make your blog look nice? There’s only one way to ensure that you don’t improve – doing nothing!
You won’t improve unless you TAKE ACTION and just give it a go.
Where I Was
Around two and a half years ago I didn’t know the first thing about WordPress. When I bought my first hosting and installed WordPress for the first time I took one look at it and went to look for something else to do because it all seemed too much like hard work.
Guess what I accomplished?
It was only when I decided to just get stuck in and get things moving regardless of my lack of knowledge that I started to make progress. That shift in attitude was the turning point for me.
Where I Am
I now have a functioning blog that has regular visitors and readers who are appreciative of my efforts to share good content with them.
I now use an autoresponder and have a mailing list. Did I know anything about that stuff before? Nope! I just got it going and learned as I went.
A couple of years ago I created my first e-book. Had I created an e-book before? Nope. But I now know how to do it. How did I learn? By DOING it!
I have started podcasting.
I have held my first webinar.
1) make the decision to do it.
2) jump in and do it.
Of course, there are some things that you simply can’t just do by experimentation, but in those cases you take action by learning. Then, you APPLY what you’ve learned.
Introducing an Action-Taker
My friend, Richard Seaton, is an action-taker. If he doesn’t know how to do something he tries it anyway. If he can’t try it by, well, trying it, then he asks for help. Then he tries it. If he still struggles then he does research and asks for more help, if necessary. Then he tries again. He may not get things perfect but he will keep on trying and keep on tweaking.
Until a few months ago, I think I’m correct in saying that Richard had never made money online. I’m sure he’ll correct me if I’m wrong! Whichever way, he hadn’t had anything close to the results he’s been having over these last few months as a result of taking ACTION.
Richard’s gone on to make thousands of dollars online by refusing to sit on his butt and do nothing. Rather, he’s consistently taking action. It’s been imperfect action at times, but so what? Imperfect action is still action and the only surefire way to failure is to do nothing.
Check out Richard’s blog. He is proving to be an inspiration to many people.
So what about you?
What do you want to do?
Make a decision and DO it!
You know, I’ve seen people invest thousands of dollars and then do nothing with the training and do nothing to make use of the materials and products that they have at their disposal that could give them a return on their investment and then some.
Totally screwy, if you ask me!
You’re not screwy, are you?
It could be that you have actually taken action and you have tried to make money online, but for some reason you haven’t had success. Maybe the product had vital pieces missing or perhaps you didn’t have the support you needed.
If that’s you then I highly recommend you check out this training course called the Big Commission Blueprint:
What’s contained in there is exactly what people like myself and Richard have gone through. It’s by taking action and applying it that we have gone on to get results.
As I said at the beginning of this post, I didn’t know what I was going to write about and am coming up with everything totally off the cuff. I felt it appropriate to throw in a push for the Big Commission Blueprint at this point for one very good reason:
Is it a magic system that will get you overnight riches? No, and, frankly, if that’s what you’re looking for then you may as well go elsewhere as you won’t ever find that stuff on my blog.
What it is, however, is a proven training course from a real rags-to-riches Internet millionaire that will take you through the necessary steps to finally have success online. I have seen many, many people go through this and go on to achieve fantastic results.
But, you know what? If you’re the sort of person who’s not going to take action then don’t click the banner and don’t buy the Big Commission Blueprint.
Yes, I will make a commission if you buy it, but if you’re not going to do anything with the training once you get it then I’d rather you didn’t bother.
So, if you’re someone who makes excuses as to why you can’t do this, that or the other, change your thinking. If you’re not prepared to take action on things, learn what you need to and apply what you learn, you know what? You’re probably not cut out for making money online.
I hope that I’ve demonstrated how you can get results by taking action. None of this post was planned. I’ve just gone ahead and written what came into my mind.
I took action.
So never mind all the excuses. Excuses won’t get you anywhere.
Are you an excuse-maker or an action-taker?
I sincerely hope that you’re an action-taker!
If not, then take action and change!
Change your thinking and you can change your life.
