    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.

    Thinking about losing keeps me motivated to keep winning. Of course, that's relative to my physical capacity. Experience has rewards.

    Do you know what I think the key to success not only in Online but Life as Whole is? It's Action. We have to agree that most of us just don't take action we read hundreds of motivational stuffs, We get to know about different techniques to earn money.... Listen to thousands of Success Stories but We don't take action, and this is the reason why I used to fail in past and millions have failed, and will keep failing in the future. The day, we decide that no matter what, I am gonna act and go mad for what I love to do that day no one can stop us from achieving our goals. The Craze has to not be about money alone there's something called as Passion and personal calling... If your personal calling is IM, then just make yourself go mad for it... Let me give you 2 instances how you can get what you want.....no matter what the situation is....

    1) Hell-bent like a Toddler: Have you seen toddlers crying for something? I generally love kids but they can be the most irritating species on Earth when they are crying incessantly .... If they want something, they will be hell-bent for it, and keep crying until and unless you give them their desired thing. If you want something, become hell-bent to achieve it. No matter what the scenario is, you have to just keep moving, keep striving until you finally get it.

    2) Spiders: I know most of you would have heard this story but the irony is that we tend to forget all the good things quite quickly than actually we should. This story is about Scottish King Robert the Bruce. He won Scottish Independence from British 700 years ago. Soon after he became king of Scotland, he lost a battle to English, and was eventually forced to go into hiding. He was hiding on a lonely island near Ireland. He kept on cursing himself for bringing disrepute to his entire generation and country. His brother was now a British prisoner and his Queen was butchered. He was ready to give up because he could see no better alternative. But God had something else waiting for him.
    Strong winds were blowing, as he lay on the bed. Suddenly his attention went on a Spider who was trying to weave web vertically, which meant it was actually trying to go against the winds and gravity. It kept on failing but relentlessly repeated the action in different ways. After 6 long tries it succeeded in getting it right. As Robert saw this, a sudden thought stuck upon him. He said to himself" When this tiny creature can try 6 times, then how can I give up only after a single defeat". He rose up and with fire in his eyes moved ahead. He gathered an army, and eventually defeated the mighty British. There are similar stories about the Great Shivaji who was one of the greatest warriors of Indian region having experienced something similar.
    The core point is to never giving up ....Rising up after every fall. ... Brushing off dust, learning from the fall, and then again moving ahead prepared only to fall again. Because We must not be afraid to fail or fall, we must be afraid to give up because if we give up we would leave a stain on our existence. Persistence is the greatest power a human being can have. So just keep trying, if you fail, then device new formula but keep striving. Cheers .....
