Alright, we’re on the home stretch!
Here’s the final installment of this MONSTER blog post series on the keys to unlocking your successful internet entrepreneur mindset…
With arguably the most important component of a successful internet entrepreneur mindset…
The top 1% are willing to be a leader
This is a fact that was pivotal in my career. Once I fully understood its power, and put it to use for myself, it literally changed everything in my business and my life, practically overnight.
By now you should be realizing how important it is to understand human psychology if you’re going to achieve the success you want. So here’s your next insight into why most people fail to achieve their dreams – and what you must do if you are going to make your dreams come true.
Just as I said before, that most people approach life with a victim mentality, here’s something else that is critical for you to understand about the human psyche: from an early age we are all conditioned to follow the leader.
You probably remember playing “follow the leader” as a child. Or what about “Simon Says”? We were all rewarded for accurately mimicking what someone else did. And you may also remember your early school years where you quickly learned that the teacher talks while the student listens. The teacher leads while the student follows.
But who is it that we admire most? Is it the team player, or the team captain? Is it the city councilman or the town mayor? Isn’t it the leader we admire most?
So, we are conditioned to be followers. But we admire and take our cue from people who are in the leadership role.
What does this have to do with becoming a successful internet entrepreneur? The answer is, everything. Here is a powerful mantra that is used by the top entrepreneurs in the world:
When you stand up to lead in any way, people automatically
FOLLOW you. Every single time. Like clockwork.
It’s a trained response in human beings. Worldwide, people are fascinated by those who are willing to stand up and lead.
I know this from my own experience. The moment – and I do mean the moment – I took the plunge and stood up to make presentations in front of my first customer groups (in front of aspiring entrepreneurs for me), the people in my audiences immediately followed me.
And I wasn’t even really an authority at that time! I screwed up numerous things and made loads of mistakes – even some embarrassing ones! Yet my customers still followed me. And more important, they spent money to purchase my products and services the moment I offered.
Now I can almost hear the objections you’re making right now: “But Jeff, I’m not an expert at anything.”
Uh oh. It’s the dreaded ‘E’ word. People tend to get all wound up about having to be an “expert” on whatever topic they’re speaking on – as though the audience knows more than they do and is just waiting to expose them.
Well, guess what? Once you choose the right customer group for your internet business based on your personal passion and skills, here’s what you will find:
It doesn’t matter to them if you’re an expert.
All that matters to them is that you CARE.
One of the greatest things about internet entrepreneurship is that you finally get to serve the people whom you truly want to help. You already DO care. And the way you will generate the level of income I’m talking about is by standing in front of your audience and just being yourself – someone who actually cares about your audience and your subject matter.
Your enthusiasm about what you love will rub off onto them, and that’s the true gift that you will be giving them.
The good news? Standing up in front of an audience of customers is something you can do. It’s a choice that you have the power to make. And the moment you choose to do it, your internet business becomes an open checkbook for you, providing the exact income and lifestyle you’ve been wanting.
I know that many people are afraid to speak before groups, but so much of that fear is nothing more than an imagination going wild – projecting a bad outcome like I talked about earlier.
Of course, you’ll never know the fact of that until you do it and see for yourself it wasn’t anything like what you told yourself it would be. That’s why you have to just get started.
The most important thing any time you speak before a group is where you focus your attention. Instead of focusing on yourself and how nervous you may be feeling, focus on your audience and the important message you want to convey to them.
And don’t see them as an enemy. See them as people who want to hear what you have to say because they know it will help them.
Just make sure you have your main points outlined and prepared, and then speak from your heart. Once you get a few successes under your belt, there will be no stopping you!
Remember, people are looking for a leader. You can be the one who steps up to the plate. You’ll change their life, and your own.
The top 1% have Awareness and Focus
As you’ve probably picked up on by now, the top 1% are never content to leave things as they are. They’re always adjusting what they are doing to improve their results, based on:
- The feedback from their environment
- What they can see about their beliefs and attitudes that may be limiting what they can achieve
So how do they get all this helpful information? They do it by paying attention. They are always aware of what’s happening around them and within them. They don’t drift off into thought or daydreams.
The world is always sending us messages. But are we receiving them? Successful people do, and then they act on them!
Related to this is focus. Successful people never forget they’re main goals, and they home in on exactly what they need to achieve them.
When an opportunity presents itself they see it because that’s where their focus is. And once they see it, they act on it. Their sharp focus means they know what they want, they see what will help them get it, and they go after it.
Pay attention. Have focus. If you do, you will already be well on your way to fulfilling all your dreams.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this series on the keys to unlocking your successful internet entrepreneur mindset.
I know I enjoyed writing it and sharing it.
Remember, think, be and live like a successful internet entrepreneur… Every day and in every way!
