There are so many books, systems, and products out there that promise to tell you the “secret” of earning 6 figures a year. They sell promise after promise and gimmick after gimmick. You may have bought some of these products – I know I have. It makes me shudder to think of the money I’ve wasted on some of these tricks and gimmicks. You may not realize that most of the systems you’ve bought into actually would have worked — if you’d had the right mindset.
I believe most marketers, product creators, and business coaches do have good plans and intentions. And their plans would have worked for you if you’d believed in your success, had the right mindset, were motivated enough to follow through, and hadn’t gotten distracted by other bright shiny objects.
The Most Important Word: Mindset
Mindset is the key word right there. Getting that right is the true secret to success. The answer is having a mindset of success and the determination to stop at nothing to get what you want.
I realize this isn’t the sexiest topic when it comes to the dream of earning a 6 figure income, but believe it or not it’s the most important topic. Most people are willing to buy a “fast money” or “easy button” product, but fewer are willing to buy a product or method they really need – one that helps them with their mindset.
In fact, that’s why I’ve decided to combine business concepts with self development training on this blog and in our courses. It’s my hope that you’ll pay attention to the personal side because it is what you need to achieve 6 (or more) figures per year.
Yes, You Can Run a Successful Business
A poor mindset tells you that you can’t do this. A poor attitude allows you to skip from one business model to another, never actually completing anything. You get excited at first but switch to the next bright shiny object very soon after. Low self esteem tells you that you will always fail – that the people who have succeeded are better than you. A poor mindset lies to you.
Your bad thinking is what makes you spin your wheels for years, never getting anywhere. It keeps you in a dead-end job, with debt and depression as your daily reality.
But, you can change that. You can focus on success and completely flip your mindset around. There’s no reason to stay stuck where you are right now. You can and will succeed if you work hard on changing your mindset.
