    Hey guys,

    i am not sure where to post this, i hope it's ok.

    My question to you:

    I assume that you are successful or you have a successful IM business and you make some good amount of money.

    How did you actually start with making money and what is the importance of the right mindset in this type of work ?

    My problem is always that i am getting lots of ideas and say to my self: "That's it", that's what i will try then. But one day later
    i get demotivated or i have some stuff in my mind going that holds me back like that it will maybe not work this way or so.

    If you know what i am saying. I want to start taking action but it's like there are always a ton of stones in my way, i have read lots of books on success and law of attraction bullshit and that mind is everything and i am so distracted from all this crap that i do not know where to start, because it is just too much information and i do not know what is better for me and everybody says something else and there is a ton of contradiction everywhere i look.

    I am afraid that if i take action, that i will actually be unsuccessful, because that has happened quite often and i have lost a lot of money, doing so. In fact i did not really took action but i am more like outsourcing most of the stuff and think that this or that and advertising will work out and at the end i fail, and that just confirms my beliefs and i find myself stuck in a vicious cycle.

    I would like to know, how you have started to make a living doing IM and what you did to kick yourself in the ass and get out and work and what obstacles you've had to overcome so that i maybe get some inspiration from you guys, to let go of my limitations and start making good money.

    Thanks and i appreciate every response, no matter how rough, because i have been in IM for almost 3 years now, just reading ebooks and buying one wso after another and i am sick of doing so.

    I have maybe made 5000$ or so but you have to consider that i have no other job and i am just wasting my time, fighting with my own mind and that just does not work for me anymore.

    Please help me.

    Action + Mindset = WEALTH

    If you can combine both, you are good and you will succeed

    They have equal value as you can't have success without the other.

    You need to network. Knowing people in this industry and establishing relationships built on trust will lead to JV's. And JV's are great when you need a little motivation to take action.

    Tip: I wouldn't be posting that you have $$$ to spend on the forums, that's just asking for trouble.

    Both play a key role as other members have stated.However i believe it realy depends what kinda of action you take.You need to fully commit yourself towards the project your working on.Dont just take the idea and run with it then if you dont see instant results you quit.You need to get rid off the idea of instant gratification.Persistence is the key in this game.Also work smart not hard!:)

    On my own I can make a living...

    Believe me there is only so much one person can process and implement.

    When I bring in partners and service providers there is no 'glass ceiling' to crash through. Why? Because when you get your business set up correctly earning potential is unlimited...

    Very true .. I didn't start earning the big bucks untill i began to outsource and have team members + other IM friends i can talk to and ask advice. Networking is very important.

    Without the mindset you won't take the action. If you take the action you've probably got the mindset.

    In conclusion, both the mindset and the action are mutually inclusive.

    You have to try that Idea even if it is the stupidest idea you have ever seen like i will record myself liking my balls and give you the video. If you don't try it you will never know if it could be succesfull or not.
    Maybe fiverr is full of gay guys and they would like to see you liking your balls. the point here is you have to try it.

    One time I had an awesome idea I thought this idea will make me some good money. what did i do i tried it and failed I tried that same idea with a twist and failed again. and tried the same idea with another twist but nothing. my conclusion: this idea sucks while before i thought it was an good idea after that you will have other ideas and you have to try and fail before you get to success.

    before you try an idea you have to do it on a small scale. you shouldn't be afraid to take action you should be afraid to not take action. just write the idea down and look what you need to take action, buy them, make them or whatever. and then just try it always keep track of things like how much visitors did I had how many clicked on the link etc. if you have a lot visitors but nobody clicks on the link that means that they might not see it or they are not interested in that link.

    you should do the hard work at the beginning if you have to signup to 30 websites. don't run to fiverr to find somebody who could do that for you, do it yourself here is why.

    1. you are taking action and you stop being lazy.
    2. you save yourself 5,10 dollar that you can use for something you can't do like coding a simple script or making a video.

    I am not making a living from IM yet but I know I will or else something should happen to me so I can't continue doing IM till I succeed.
    How I kick myself is really easy and dangerous If you're emotional.
    Go to bed at night you have to be alone and think what if I die now? I didn't accomplish my goal be it having a big home be it having a awesome car or whatever.
    I read something here on the forum that goes like this.

    ?Today is a check ? cash it! Yesterday is an I.O.U. ? forget it! Tomorrow is a promissory note, don?t bank on it!?

    You will never learn how to walk if you don't try to. And if you walk you will fall several times but at the end you will learn how to walk.
