Do you believe in Mind over Matter?

Last Update: August 14, 2017

There are days when we don’t have the motivation to work on our site, what do you do then? Do you keep reminding yourself of your goals and thus motivate yourself to get started? Does a pep talk work?

Do you believe in the power of the mind, in convincing yourself to do certain things, which normally you do not have the power to do, or the strength to bear it? I know many people have read the book “The Secret”. Do you think constantly thinking about one thing will make it come true in the end? Do you believe in it? Has it ever worked?

If yes, you believe it, please share with us your internet marketing goals. Are you prepared to invest all your thinking hours on it? :)

Yes, but getting out of your comfort zone is the trick, there are times that i really don't want to go to the gym, but start thinking
about the results and i am motivated to go. As far as putting time into my online business I can visualize success and will work toward the end.

Many people can probably relate to that. Go to the gym, eat healthier, sleep earlier, start writing my posts etc... before we start, there always seem to be an invisible force holding us back, but once we get started, like you do with the end success in mind, then motivation kicks in.

Yes, but I am still working on the mind part so it can be over matter..

Yes, I believe the hardest part is overcoming ourselves and our weaknesses.

Yes, I believe in it very much, though I don't necessarily believe that doing something when you just don't feel like it qualifies as mind over matter. That's just being disciplined.

I have had a number of experiences with visualising things and having them manifest. My most recent bog dealt with this, actually.

Now, I have to focus all my thoughts and efforts on building my business. I haven't put as much effort into it as I should have recently, so I need to get back on track.

Your visualisation experience sounds very interesting, is that proof that your minds made those visualisations come true?

Its easy to get off track at times, just get back and work on. Best wishes to you...

I don't really know the "hows" and "whys". I just know what seems to work, so I plan to keep doing it. Ha ha.

Mind over matter is true. Doing something when you don't feel like doing so is discipline. My ultimate goal is to create an internet presence which will carry on long after I'm gone. My marketing plan is to use social media repeatedly.

I guess when something becomes a chore, we have to let habits and discipline to get us through sometimes.

Sounds like a really long term goal of yours and its admirable. Thanks for sharing...

Is your marketing plan working? What kind of platforms are you using? Do you manage them yourself?

I manage everything myself at this time. I use social platforms from LinkedIn to twitter. The platforms work as long as you are constantly tending them like posting for example.

This is an area which I need to work on more? May I also ask whether you keep sharing the old posts again and again on the platforms?

I use only new material. I don't use old posts.

I believe in mind over matter Moony, but I also believe in recuperation and rest.

At times you cannot force the ideas to come, you need to do something fun and relaxing and come back to it. When you come back to it refreshed, the ideas will flow better than ever.

Then when you are recuperated, the power of the mind will work wonders.
