In my experience, it’s very easy to become disillusioned from time to time when building an online business.
It can be terribly frustrating when things don’t pan out as you expected, or you meet roadblocks.
One of my mentors, once told me that making money with internet marketing is simple, but is not easy.
A lot of folks new to internet marketing are looking for the ‘magic button’ which you press and money tumbles into your PayPal account.
It ain’t that easy. Like any other business, you need to learn from the best and implement what you have learned.
In other words, it’s hard work and requires your determination to make it pay.
Your attitude to this is so important and you have to treat what you’re doing as a business.
So, like me, if you ever get in a strop and blaming others for your failings, you need to check in with yourself.
But even if you’re not into internet marketing, changing your attitude can benefit you, your family, and friends …
Life hasn’t gone the way you had hoped. You are in your same dead-end job, in a career you thought had some promise.
But it didn’t turn out as planned.
You believe it just isn’t on your cards to have that dream life.
However, what could be the problem is not having the right kind of attitude.
You may want to explore changing your attitude and see if that doesn’t result in the changes you need for the better.
The first step is to figure out if your attitude could use some adjusting.
Do you find people trying to avoid you?
Do you find that you get set off by the smallest incidents?
You may have just ignored what people have told you about you having a bad attitude.
The next time you are involved in some incident that goes bad, ask yourself this question.
Is this something that was my responsibility?
Go through the scenario from the perspective of an outsider observing you.
Is there anything you could have done differently that would have changed the result?
Think back to what you said and see if you were the one responsible.
You shouldn’t take the blame for everything.
If you reach within and discover that others were responsible, then hold them to it.
Just make sure that you have ruled out yourself as the culprit before doing this.
If there are some grey areas, be willing to give in a bit.
When you go through this exercise, you will find you are in the wrong more often than you realised.
Once you come to this realisation, you can take steps to change yourself.
Don’t focus only on negative aspects of your life.
Accept both the good and bad.
Be proud of the good aspects and be willing to work on the negative ones.
Changing your attitude is a process.
As such, it will take some time to readjust your thinking.
You identify that you are not always right and will try to do what is necessary to avoid those activities again.
When you do avoid them in the future, make sure you recognize that as an achievement as this is an important part of the process.
Expect others to recognise your changes when you commit to making them.
Your attitude will change for the better just by going through the process described.
You will live a happier life, and you will make friends much more easily.
Till next time.
Onward and Upward!
