Internet Marketing Success: Changing Your Mindset

Mindset can be defined as a fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations. What this means is that the way you think will affect the outcome of what you want to achieve.

You could have tons and tons of marketing knowledge, but unless you have the proper mindset, you will never succeed. On the other hand, if you have the right mindset, you can find success even if you start with very little knowledge.

You need to change your mindset so that you stop thinking of yourself as an employee and start thinking of yourself as an entrepreneur.  Once you do this, you are on your way to being a successful Internet marketer

Unless you were born extremely wealthy and have never needed to work a single day in your life, it has more than likely been drummed into you since infancy that the road to success means getting a good job. You parents probably encouraged you to get a job after school, maybe to pay for that car you wanted, to purchase what you thought were necessities or maybe some luxuries. It may even have been necessary for you to get a job to add to the family’s income.

Your parents, teachers and friends may have encouraged you to attend college so you could find a well paying job once you graduated.  To them, financial security meant working for someone else.  So for years, you were trained and conditioned to accept the fact that one day you too would have a job.

If you’ve told anyone you want to be an Internet marketer, they probably thought this was just a hobby or phase that you would abandon with time. They may even have discouraged you and expressed a lot of doubt that you would succeed.  Again, they may have told you that the only way to be successful is to have a well paying job. Since they have held a 9 to 5 job for years, they naturally equate a job with security.

Is it any wonder that your mindset is to be an employee, not an entrepreneur?  You’ve spent your entire life thinking that you needed to be an employee in order to be successful but it is time to change that thinking.  While there is nothing wrong with having a job and working for someone else, you wouldn’t have purchased this encyclopedia if you wanted to be an employee for the rest of your life.

There will be many times when you will become discouraged and tell yourself that maybe you aren’t meant to be an entrepreneur. But DON’T listen to that little voice caused by exhaustion, self doubt, or even your friends’ and family’s continual, though well meant, negativity. Keep reminding yourself that you are not an employee any longer, you are now an entrepreneur and you will become a successful Internet marketer. Do NOT give up. Believe in yourself and your future success.

Unfortunately many would be Internet marketers do give up and very often, just when they are on the verge of success. Don’t join their ranks. Every time you fall down, pick yourself up and keep going.  Success is just over that next hump.
