The Rewards Are Fulfilling
Imagine you are making money out of the things you love to do, everyday you’ll wake up from bed knowing that you are working in your dream job. You’ll be on fire every single day because you are fulfilling your purpose in life and you’re simply having fun.
Imagine that you have all the time in your hands with no one controlling your schedule. Wouldn’t it feel liberating that you take control of your own life? The outcome of your efforts are all yours to take and no one else can take it away from you.
Imagine if you can develop your expertise every day and work your way to the top. You obsess over your passion to the point that people will simply watch your awesomeness and start to admire your every action. You’ll grow your follower base as a result of being the best.
Imagine yourself creating multiple sources of income and realize that money is not that hard to get. Your previous belief about money will simply be defied in the process once you start to understand how money works. At this point you now have a wealthy mindset.
Imagine if you can scale your business up to a great extent that you literally take over the whole world. Visualize yourself standing in front of a large audience and you’re giving a power talk (think of TEDx). You’ll simply rise to the top and be the authority in your industry.
And lastly, imagine living the life you’ve always wanted because now you have the ability to afford any lifestyle. You might want a bigger house, a luxurious car, the freedom to travel around the globe, the time to hang out with your friends, or simply you want to help people and donate to your chosen charity.
All of these things will become a reality once you follow my advice and start taking action right now.
What You Will Need
Given below is the list of both tangible and intangible things that you will need in your quest for awesomeness. If you think you have all these, then you’re ready to go.
- Time – You must be willing to invest the time in order to get things done (the amount of time depends on you)
- Money – Think of spending money for this cause as an investment and not something that you will regret especially in the long term
- Laptop or PC – In order to create an online business you’ll definitely need either a laptop or a desktop computer, whichever works best for you
- Internet Connection – This is an absolute must if you want to create online wealth and goes side by side with a computer
- Coaching or Training Program – For beginners, you should join a highly reputable program that can help you become successful
- Hobby or Passion – Everyone is special because every person has a unique set of skills and talents that he or she can tap into to become successful
- Motivation – Is something that gets you excited and focused while working your way to the top
- Mindset – It all begins with the thoughts in your mind, which I believe should be focused on creating massive success (think BIG)
- Persistence – Is when 99.999% of the people lose faith in you but making sure that the .001% never fades because you have complete faith in yourself
- Action! – Basically the most important ingredient of all, and is something that must be done in massive amounts
Treat this as your checklist in order to become a Passionate Marketer. I provided this list so that you’ll have a head start in taking control of your own life.
Excuses You Might Have
To make you clear of your thoughts, I’m going to answer the most common issues and concerns that you have which could get in the way between you and your dream. By reading this section, I hope that you’ll be able to lessen or eliminate your worries and fears. But still, feel free to leave some more questions in the comments below if something wasn’t mentioned here.
- I don’t know how and where to start
You do it by making a commitment to yourself that you are going to take action and start taking the necessary steps to success. Don’t worry too much about the How because it will come as a result of committing yourself to the process. Don’t let that question get in your way between you and your success.
- But I’m not an expert or a guru
It’s true that you’re not an expert, yet. But once you go through the process and start doing your research and practicing your skills, sooner or later your abilities will be noticed. So it’s really about making regular investments in yourself by learning new things and constantly showing up to people. Prove to them that your intentions are good by providing great value all the time and soon they will recognize you as an authority within your niche.
- I haven’t found my passion yet
If you’re not sure about what your true passion is, ask yourself these questions:
- What are your hobbies, skills, talents, or interests?
- On which items do you spend your money the most?
- What activities do you spend most of your time with?
- When you were in school, which subjects do you normally excel at?
- What industry do you want to be the best and well-known at?
- What are the things that you are really obsessed with everyday?
- But I don’t have the time, I have an 8 to 5 job
Sure, there is definitely a way to find time for your real passions and interests. An exercise that I advise you to do is to notice every single activity that you do every day from the moment you wake up until you sleep at night. You’ll notice that there are some activities that you can simply cut off to find time for your passion.
- I’m running low on funds
Find a way to make a few hundred dollars a month, either by working in your job or borrowing money from your friends or loved ones. The good thing about The Passionate Marketer is that we do business online. The reason why is because it’s cheaper to start on the Internet than in an actual offline business. You can simply bootstrap the funding because you don’t have to worry about the typical costs of running a brick and mortar business therefore it’s easy to get started.
- I don’t want to spend money on improving myself, it’s too expensive!
There is a lot of free information on the Internet. Doing Google or YouTube search will enable you to access these materials. However, in order to get guidance and direction, you will need some specialized tools and training programs in order to move forward. Some of them are cheap but the best ones will actually cost more, and I admit it might get really expensive. But trust me, when you invest in these materials, the returns will be astonishing. You won’t just get your money back, it will multiply several times as well.
- I don’t want to write blogs and publish articles
The main reason why people don’t want to write blogs is because they don’t have the writing skills compared to that of a professional writer. I don’t really believe that you have to be professional, much less strive for perfection. Every time I write content for my blog, I do not focus too much on getting the spelling and grammar right. My top priority is providing valuable and useful information that readers would want to engage with.
- There are lots of distractions around me
First of all, I understand and feel your pain if you’re living with distractions in a negative environment. Even I could not escape from this situation. However, you have the choice to accept and let these external things control you, or to change or adapt to your surroundings. You can either move to a better place or work your way around the obstacle, that way you’ll be in better shape.
- I did not take a Marketing or IT degree
So do I. I’m a civil engineer by degree and I never took any courses or college degrees related to running a business and building a website. So what makes me think that I will be successful? Because I said so! If you let a lack of formal degree get in your way, you will never create the life you want. This principle works for everything you want to learn. Don’t think that you have to take a course in order to be an expert in what you’re doing.
- There are lots of things I must learn, it’s so overwhelming!
When I realized that there was a lot to learn about business and online marketing, at first I got excited with all the things I’m going to learn. But when I started studying them all, that’s where I got overwhelmed by the information. It’s like getting in a plane that is at 39,000 feet and looking down towards the ground. My advice for you is to focus on one thing at a time. There’s only so much that your memory can contain at any given moment that you have to let go of the other things first and save them for later.
- There is too much competition in my niche
This problem can be very bothering especially if you’re not ready. How will you be noticed if there are lots of people competing within your niche? How can you become a contender if you see people way ahead of you? There are two ways you can get through this. Either you work very hard to be the best, or you focus on a smaller, but more specific niche. I believe the latter is the better option. Then start expanding once you’ve gained enough traction in your business.
- I’m scared to go big so I’m contented with what I have
While it’s true that it’s scary to go to uncomfortable places, you have a decision whether to go forward or retreat. So most people spend their lives retreating from the things that will give them true happiness. I don’t want you to be like them simply because it’s a life lived with regret. Think YOLO (You Only Live Once) and start doing the things that will make your life more meaningful.
To Sum Things Up
It’s really that simple. Don’t overcomplicate things and focus on these two important lessons. Once you understand this, then you are one step closer to a more blissful life. Take note that this venture is not a get-rich-quick scheme, meaning you have to go through the process whether you like it or not. So prepare for the long haul, start your journey and don’t forget to have fun!
I’ve mentioned a while ago that you should find a very reputable program that will guarantee you success. If you don’t know where to start, you might as well consider checking out Wealthy Affiliate, which I find to be a very wonderful program. It is a platform for people who want to start their very own online business. They teach you the basics of making money online.
The interesting thing about this program is that along with the training, it also features a wonderful and very active community. You will meet a lot of people who want to get started with achieving their dreams just as you do. You should give it a try because it’s FREE to join in. See for yourself and tell me what you think of it.
That’s it for my advice on how to get started. Did you learn a lot from it? Do you think you have what it takes to turn your awesome skills and talents into profits?
