Have You Got the Right Entrepreneurial Mindset?
I don't like we people tell me "you can't do it".
Eeck, I don't like it either when people say "I can't do it".
I don't believe that.
You see... I'm partial to that "Back to the Future I" quote.
"If You Put Your Mind To It, You Can Accomplish Anything."
I'm pretty sure that we can do anything we put our minds into.
If we don't know how, we just have to try and learn, practice and repeat until we get the hang of it.
I also see many people signing up to Wealthy Affiliate (or not signing up and simply just trying on their own if they can succeed in the affiliate marketing world which is also perfectly fine) and setting deadlines / roadblocks like "I want to start making money in 30 days" or "I'll give this a try for 3 months".
Usually they fail... big time.
Because this is far from being an easy business.
This isn't just starting a website, writing a few blog posts and BAAMM... let me open my pockets for the money to start pouring in.
If you're a beginner (or even more experienced) things will be tough, things will go wrong, stuff won't always turn out as planned but...
This is not how many times you fall down.
This is how strong you get up again and fight to live another day.
That's what being an entrepreneur really means.
That's what having the right entrepreneurial mindset is all about.
Hey, don't take it from me... after all I've only been "here" since 2000.
(I've "only" spent more than 4/5 years to reach financial independency thanks to my websites and online businesses [because I was following the wrong approach until someone told me about affiliate marketing and Wealthy Affiliate].)
Instead follow what successful entrepreneurs and successful people have said time and time again.
I'll leave you with a couple of quotes more for you to reflect about what they really mean:
"Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up." (Alfred Pennyworth in "Batman Begins")
"I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." (Michael Jordan)
