I’ll be putting up the content from Affiliate Summit West over the next couple of days, but here’s the most important lesson I picked up from the affiliate managers and super affiliates I’ve been talking to.
You don’t already need more content than what you’ve already seen on their blogs and forums, but here’s the difference that makes a difference.
The major obstacle and stumbling block for 99% of online marketers is your mindset.
And it’s not something you can rationalize, but rather an emotional reponse.
Sure, all of us can think we theoretically earn a million dollars a month, but the question is whether you feel you have the ability and are motivated to achieve it.

If you have no expectations about your online earning potential, you’d likely be happy with earning $1.
But from there, whether you hit the $10/day, $100, $1,000 or $10,000 level all depends on the ‘glass ceiling’ you’ve set for yourself.
Internet Marketing is truly a mind game.
Because once you’d set your mind in motion, you will go all out to find the strategies to reach the next level.
Here’s my personal beliefs that will help you reach the next level:
- Never Stop Learning
Things never stay the same. Expect change. And deal with it. Whatever doesn’t stop you will only create a barrier of entry for other.
- Problem-centered or Solution-centered
Are you someone who’s apt to complain or get stressed when a problem arises.
If you shift to a solution-oriented approach when something happens and you’re able to deal with it sooner than the others, you’d have a headstart on your competitors.
- Test, Test and Test
The first step is to take action, the second is to test everything. Never take anything for granted and you could see increases of 10-20% in your results.
The most important attribute, however, is persistence. If you work at something long enough, you might not get the same results you’re aiming for, but you’d be pretty close.
