So You Want To Start An Online Marketing Business Selling Digital Products? First Thing You Need To Do, Invest In Yourself.
I hear this all the time “I’m going to wait until I earn some money from the business so I can afford to invest in myself, whether it’s training attending seminars and reading books.
If you’ve ever said this, read it word for word. I’ll zoom back 2 years ago when I was starting my online marketing business
One of the first things I did is to invest in a $50 program about affiliate marketing. After applying what I learned, it’s not giving me the result I am expecting,
The training didn’t work… in fact, the whole thing was a nightmare. The training was old & outdated, I couldn’t get any help from REAL people who knew what they were doing… it was bad.
What do you do when that happens? Well, here’s what most people do:
“SCAM. I’ve been SCAMMED!
I’m not going to invest in anything else because obviously paying for that stuff doesn’t work.” The equivalent of seeing a car accident, and deciding that cars don’t work and dangerous, and resolving to WALK, for the rest of your life.
When I put things in proper perspective, I realize how stupid these mental barriers are, they’re designed for PROTECTION, not for achievement.
After that experience, I should’ve given up and just settled for a “Job”. In fact, I did where I concentrate on doing overtime work on my Job.
But You know what I did next, I enrolled in another course for PHP 25,000 about how to start an online marketing business selling e-books!
This time I paid more than the first one. …so I had to dig some money that was supposed to be going towards bills!
When you say “I’m going to wait until ________ so I can *afford* to invest in myself,” you don’t understand… You cannot afford NOT to invest in yourself.
Again I will repeat it, You cannot Afford NOT to invest in yourself.
Your mental model is setting you up to fail… it’s designed to protect you and in this case, it’s actually “protecting” you from success!
