How to Succeed as a Newbie Affiliate Marketer Against All Odds!

Last Update: January 24, 2021

Hi guys and girls! I'm Elias and in this article I want to talk about how to succeed as a newbie affiliate marketer against all odds. The following information about affiliate is not facts but merely my thoughts on having a success mindset as I've learned it.

Some might see Wealthy Affiliate as a scam, but the 80/20 rule tells us that it is natural to expect 8 out of 10 people in any given area to fail. If you don't know this rule make a search for it. The rule is known as the Pareto Principle.


I want to teach you how you can make sure you are one of the 2 out of 10, that get to their first sale and beyond.

Strategy Without Mindset is a Lost Cause
Wealthy Affiliate has the most comprehensive step-by-step guide I've ever seen in a business. They share their blueprint to success, yet many people fail earn money. Why is that?

You see.

Most people don't know that even if you knew exactly what to do to get filthy rich, you need the right mindset to see it through.

Deep in your subconscious you'll find your program, your paradigm. A multitude of habits which you can't easily change. You can however with certainty change it.

Getting success with affiliate marketing using Wealthy Affiliates entrepreneur training may require the same effort as a person trying to quit smoking. Or an obese person to lose and keep a healthy weight. We are addicted to our habits.

The daily routines of our lives is a huge problem and to get financial success we must break habits, and form new ones. This is known as a paradigm shift.

People in Your life Don't Want You to Succeed, But I Do!
This may sound harsh and it is, but people don't mean it that way. Odds are most people you know do similar things as you. To succeed and increase your odds to become one of the 2 out of 10 you must change your habits and your circumstances.

If you haven't changed already and noticed that I'm right, you probably wouldn't agree with this. If this is the case, try to notice what people say and do as you begin changing.

My success mindset mentors recommend writing your goals down and keeping them to yourself. Telling your goals to people that aren't at your level of vibration just don't get it and may even become defensive, angry or afraid.

To change your circumstances do the following 3 things:

  1. Move and find another community
  2. Have people around you move, be sure to replace the empty space with the new mindset
  3. Change together

In business I've heard talk about sacrifice a lot. To me this means letting go of the old habits which you feel comfortable and secure in. Think about that for a moment.


Habits are formed in your communication with people and whatever you perceive. This means if all your peers have ordinary or minimum wage jobs you are most likely going to be pulled in that direction. The same goes for wealthy people.

If you want to become wealthy you will want to surround yourself with people that have achieved the results you want. Wealthy Affiliate is a great example of a platform that provide the opportunity to do that. You must spend less time with unsuccessful people and work on you mindset.

My dad believes in me 100%, but he has some core beliefs which keeps him poor and in depth and I adopt he's thinking whenever I'm close to him, my mom is even more of that. I love them with all my heart! But having a heart of gold doesn't solve your financial problems, let alone make you rich.

  • Who in your life doesn't want you to change, even if you do?
  • Who believes in your new ideas and want to follow your adventure to the end of the world?

My mom always told me to find a woman before I became wealthy. This was such an integrated core belief in my subconscious that made it impossible for me to earn money. I did however always feel safe, secure and loved. My sister on the other hand is ready to "jump of the cliff"!

  • Get out of your comfort zone
  • Listen to people that have the results that you want (Audiobook best sellers, videos, read articles etc.)
  • Change your environment or leave it behind

How to Work on Your Mindset - Tips and tricks
To create a powerful mindset that goes perfectly with Wealthy Affiliate I'll start with the following 3 words:

  1. Ask
  2. Believe
  3. Receive

You MUST ask for what you want, by writing it down or doing it literally. You must do it all the time until you believe it is already yours. You must feel it is yours so can receive it.

What is my problem?

Asking: Have you ever been afraid to ask for what you wanted? Could be a kiss or a hug from someone, could be money or some help with what ever.

Belief: Did you ever dream of something, but didn't believe you could ever have it? Could be a car a partner, a certain amount of money or going on an amazing trip.

Receive: Have someone ever offered you anything that you wanted and you said no? When I was young I would say no to candy, soda and other stuff even though I wanted it. It wasn't because I thought I didn't deserve it, or was it!

Watch out for your rational mind!

After you make choices that you may or may not know is right or wrong, the mind tend to rationalize and enforce that behavior. The best thing is to practice the success mindset before the opportunity present itself.

Say yes and no!

NO, you can't borrow my car. YES I want the last piece of cake.

  • Practice saying what you want and don't want in front of the mirror even though you don't believe it

"Thank you who ever you are for providing me the opportunity to get that Lamborghini Aventador for Christmas 202x, I know I deserve it because of all the value I share with people."

Make it specific though!

  • Write down your goal in a sentence
  • Put a timeline(deadline) for when you will have it
  • Imagine everything about it,
    • Where your are.
    • What you do.
    • What you've learned to get there
    • Why you want it
    • Who you need to become to get it
    • What you are a part of as you become that person

Affirmation is Key to Apply the Secret Law of Attraction
That's right. The secret to success is the law of attraction. I'm not going into details on that one, sufficed to say, whatever you give out comes back ten fold, good and bad. Therefor you don't ever want to be dealing out negativity, only positive thinking. This may sound corny but it's the truth as I know it from my mentors.

Affirmations are all about repetition. If you know what you want, keep repeating it until it happens, in any way possible.

  • Sing about what you want
  • Write about what you want
  • Talk about what you want
  • Do what you want
  • Read about how to get it
  • Listen to audio about how to get it

Just remember one thing! You must be honest. No shady business, no dealing under the table! It is vital that it stays within the law.

As a Wealthy Affiliate there is a saying about giving twice what you want in advance, also known as paying forward. This is expert advice!

To become attractive you want to have integrity and know who you are and what you want and don't want. You also want to stand out from the crowd, people like value things that are rare.

You must value your own time and not act on other peoples agenda. Be a master of your own life. Don't pick up the phone just because it rings, don't text on messenger just because a message comes.

  • Create your own schedule and follow your plan

Go Live Your Dream Life!
Now you've been introduced to the basics on how to succeed as a newbie affiliate marketer against all odds.

If you think you got that mindset down no problem, Wealthy Affiliate has the strategy to build your affiliate business that's for sure. I you don't succeed it is because you need to work on your mindset. Took me 10 years to realize what I just wrote in this article.

If you believe what I'm saying you are probably going to read this article again, if not you really need to. No matter what, remember to come back when you meet that inevitable resistance.

We talked about success and it really is achieved by following specific rules. The 80/20 rule is one and the law of attraction is one.

Good luck and please do write me should you have any questions regarding this article.

Kind regards

I understand what you are saying. I had this mind set growing up and did well. But as I’ve got older I seem to have weakened if not lost this positive mindset. It’s amazing reading your words and them resonating with me. Thank you.
