One of the most important qualities required in an individual to succeed online is to think positive. This will be a detailed posts and I will cover the why aspect after I finish a short story. Story There was a cricket match between India and Pakistan and Sachin Tendulkar was the captain of the Indian cricket team. One day before the match in the practice session one of the important players of India, Rahul Dravid got injured. Next day the toss before the match as the pitch was to deteriorate after 50 overs was also very crucial and unfortunately India lost the toss as well. Now, Pakistan captain elected to bat first and thereafter Ravi Shastri (Commentator) invited Sachin to declare the team for the match and discuss strategy. At last, Ravi asked Sachin a question. Sachin, now that you have lost the toss and even Rahul Dravid is not playing due to surgery. How are you going to win the game today ? Sachin kept quite for some time and then said. "Ravi, matches are played and won in the mind and not in the filed" Result of the match: Sachin scored 140 not out and India chased the target given by Pakistan. This is what positive thinking can do to you. It applies to every aspect of life and online world is no exception. Let us see why: Why positive thinking is needed to succeed online ? Reason 1- The start Let us start with the begging. What was the biggest difficulty you faced when you though to do internet marketing ? I can predict that in most of the cases it is the opposition from family. The parents are not able to understand the rewards or benefits associated with this stuff and thus stress on looking for a real job. Sometimes, the repetition of same words again and again may make you doubt your own skills. What is required here to come out of this situation? Yes, it is the belief on your own abilities. It requires a lot of courage to take that first step and if you do not think positively at that time, you will remain confused. Reason2- Uncertainties There are a number of unavoidable uncertainties in this filed. Sometimes your Paypal will get blocked, a penguin update will appear, you will get scammed or your website will get hacked. What will motivate you to continue in these situations? Once again it is positive thinking. You have to belief that these problems are just temporary and they can be solved. This is what Sachin did in the above story and finally won the match for India. Reason3-Risks No matter how many big deals or transactions you have done online, there will always be a a fear of risk whenever you start something new. Once again, the solution to this problem is to look to just push that button and hope for the best. I hope the post will help you to take charge of your life. I will end this post with four lines (not mine): Remember life's battle do not always go, To the stronger or faster man, But sooner or later the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can.
