You have been working for the same company for the past 10 year and still counting….. 10 years! It was a really long time and you are amazed that you are still there…in one piece! You started as an ordinary executive and now you are in the management level and are trusted with responsibility of managing more than 100 staff.
You should be proud of your achievement but you do not. In fact, you feel so empty inside, so trap and you feel an urgent urge to get loose!
Sounds familiar? Then the idea struck you. You want to be an internet marketer. But you began to wonder what it takes to be a successful internet marketer. Below are few traits of a successful internet marketer you can adopt.
Make commitment to yourself.
Make a commitment to yourself that you are not going to give up easily. It is going to be the start of a rough and difficult journey in search for victory and success. You must be committed to put in your best effort to build a successful business.
It is not going to be easy but the end result is worth every single effort you invested. If you are determine and persistent, you can and will achieve what you want.
Discipline and time management
Many people failed in their business because they lacked what is takes to carry out the daily tasks that requires them to take action even in the midst of chaos.
Promise yourself that you will be spending certain hours of time in a day to build your business. Ensure you stick to your commitment and schedule. Do not cheat or give excuses. You also must be consistent in what you are doing. Perhaps it may help to have an imaginary boss who is forever checking on you and breathing down your neck!
Take action now!
People are afraid to take immediate action as they worry of making mistakes. They wait for next week, wait until they move house, giving themselves all kind of excuses they can think of.
Making mistakes and learning from them is like going for surgery. You have to go through the pain to make yourself better. Mistakes are what help us to understand where we have gone wrong and improve our decision making skills so that we will not make the same mistakes in the future. We will make mistakes but often those mistakes are worth because of the lesson we learn from them.
Set yourself realistic and reachable goals. Do let failure stop you. A wise man once said,
“Failure doesn’t have to be permanent; it is just a stepping stone on your way to real success”.
Surround yourself with positive people and do not give up.
Surround yourself with people who will always encourage and cheer you along. Stay away from negative people. Stay away from people who always ridicule you when you are unable to show them immediate and instant results. It is important for you to stay focused on your goals and remind yourself that it is worth all your effort and patience. You are going through a journey and all journeys take time.
It is easy to quit when you don’t see immediate and instant results. Remind yourself despite that you must go on. The biggest problem is people think that they can achieve their goals fast. However it is not always easy to get immediate results. People get discouraged easily because they do not see the immediate results and lose their drive and interest.
