Would you like to get a tip to get ahead in Internet Marketing?
Find your greatest fear.
Face it head on.
Seriously, you will find your efforts yielding massive results.
Consider the following:
- Afraid of making sales presentations and the prospect of having doors slammed in your face, being abused and getting turned down?
Go ahead and adopt an aggressive offline campaign, pitch to corporate prospects, venture capitalists, private equity specialists, whoever might be your target group.
- Have poor proficiency in Mandarin (like me and most of my ACS brethren)? Afraid to venture into the China market?
Take up the challenge and create a China-focused Internet Marketing strategy.
Teach the Chinese conversational and business English if you need to.
Are you crazy? What’s the point of all this? What are you trying to prove?
Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damaged capacitor…
There’s nothing to ‘prove’, but consider this.
The barrier to our greatest success is our greatest fear.
Fear paralyzes us. It creates a vicious cycle of procrastination.
The biggest failure anyone can every make is not to have tried and failed.
The greatest failure is never to have tried.
By conquering our greatest fear, won’t everything pale in comparison?
If you are afraid of heights, take this as a challenge.
Go find the highest bungee jump location you can find.
Confront your fears.
Now, this is the most important part.
MAKE the decision to jump.
YOU have to make the decision to jump.
As you jump, keep your eyes wide open.
Here’s the important part, YOU make the decision to jump because you are in the driver’s seat.
You are the captain of the ship, the pilot of your destiny. [fill in your own analogy here]
If you had someone push you, it doesn’t count.
Go up and jump again.
Are you proving anything?
Do you end up ‘better‘ having done that?
Yes, you do actually.
And it’s not what you think.
You didn’t ‘prove’ anything to me.
Nor anyone else for that matter.
You ‘proved’ it to yourself. You raised your threshold, you stretched out of your comfort zone a little more.
My friend, Adam Khoo, says he constantly does things that scare the hell out of himself.
Whether it’s addressing a crowd of thousands, or entering into a wholly new arena, he’s there putting himself on the line.
And he sees results.
He’s sharing many business secrets in his latest venture here.
Will we always be successful?
I doubt it, otherwise there’s no fear.
But the biggest things we can come up with is not the accomplishment of having facing fear.
Rather it’s the COURAGE to have faced it, and of our own free will too.
After all, conquer your fears and you can conquer the world.
