Hey people reading my blog, today I’m going to show you how to step up your game to claim your online success.
Stepping up your game requires the following six have to rules:
Find a Mentor, But Be Prepared to be Mentored
The first thing you need to know about being mentored is that you need to be coachable and passionate about what you’re doing. If you’re one of those people who listen through one ear and lets it out the other, honestly a mentor will not be able to get through.
To be successful, you need to be committed to your success and know the mentor is also committed to your success. This means not going over and beyond what your mentor is guiding you through.
When I coached individuals in the past, especially new business owners who were running their own business, there were times they would ask for information, but then totally override what I had said.
It wasn’t a help to them or me when this took place. A couple of months later they’d be back and say, “what you told me to do didn’t work.”
My question would be,” Did you do what I asked you to?’
To which the response many times would be, “well I tried it for a few weeks, but then didn’t see a response I wanted so I gave up.”
As some of you know when working on a business concept, a few weeks isn’t going to cut it.
Sometimes to be mentored our mentality has to change!
How can you change your mentality to learn new business concepts?
I feel the best way to be able to change your mind is by turning inwards while committing yourself to tune into an outcome of long-term success.
How can you find a mentor?
Where I am taking ongoing (I will never quit taking training) affiliate training, has some of the best mentors there. Join this awesome program, and it’s free and be mentored by myself or some of the phenomenal people there.
If that’s not your thing, then that’s okay too. Get in touch with someone who is in the same line of online business that you are going to do. Reach out to the influencers of your subject.
Clarify What You Want As an Online Successful Person
Vision boards are great for clarifying online business success. When I led group classes with people who were starting their business, this was one of the techniques we used to help establish long-term goals.
Most of us are driven by business success, but the ones who are successful are the ones who clarify their success. By defining your success, it helps to guide your day-to-day decision-making a reality for success.
Most people clarify what they want as a successful online person by:
- Having a one-year plan
- Having a three-year plan
- Having a five-year plan
- And so on…
Once we have something in writing or pictures on a vision board, it starts to look more concrete. The more you refer back to your goals, the more you’ll want to achieve them.
It’s a subconscious thing. Have you ever heard of affirmations, if you have then you know the more they are affirmed, the more they lock into place? This is precisely what you’re going to be doing when you clarify your online success.
You’re an Expert, Share it With Others
Okay so now you found a mentor who is mentoring you. Share the love and mentor someone else to succeed. By sharing with others, we’re not taking it away from ourselves. Instead, our knowledge is creating opportunities for others.
Honestly, I consider it the ultimate compliment when something I shared with someone about an online business startup is then shared with another person. To me, it seems what I had to say was worthy for the other individual to want to share.
Take Risks without Worrying
To be truly successful risks have to be taken. I know that I took a chance when I decided to do online marketing. In the back of my mind, I kept thinking will this even work.
I was spending hours working to make it successful; now I think I could have done without the added stress of worry. Worrying slowed down my desire to achieve success.
Not to mention that I was a premium member at Wealthy Affiliate. Being a premium member means a monthly cost. All in all, I’m glad I took this risk because there is so much knowledge available there. So many experts are willing to share all about their online success.
Worrying creates obstacles in the ways of being successful. It hinders you. The only way to get past worry is to do what it is your afraid of.
Claim Ownership of the Issue and Fix it
By claiming ownership of an issue which needs fixing you come across as a person who is willing to work to resolve the problem, not one who runs away. It can help to establish you as an online authority. People start to look up to you, knowing that you went that extra mile to make sure what you are putting out there was right.
It helps to build a trust factor among your readers, those very people who are going to make you successful as an online business. We all have weaknesses, and it’s okay to admit them. This comes across as we are only human after all, we all make mistakes.
Don’t ever try to shove off a mistake you made on to someone else. Karma is real!
Laugh at Your Jokes
Make sure you laugh at your jokes. Many times we online business entrepreneurs work alone from an office at home, it’s essential to keep laughter alive. It gets pretty dull when you’re working with no one to talk to.
Plus no one will get your joke as you do, so laughing out loud makes sense. I tell myself a lot of corny Mom jokes. Hey, they make perfect sense to me
Also, laughing out loud gets you out of monotony. It also gets the endorphins going which can help to bring in new creativity to what you’re doing.
These amazingly easy ideas can be implemented now to help you claim your online success. Why not get started on them right away?
