To be a success at anything you have to love what you do. You must develop a warrior’s mindset. Which means you are focused on your craft, learning the skills and techniques that will get you to master status.
So, when I say warriors come out to play that means getting into the grind. You will never be successful if you don’t make the grind a daily part of your life. Nothing comes easy it takes effort.
The warrior is fearless. They have a never give up, fight to the death mentality. That is how you must be when it comes to your business. You want nothing to stop you. You will fight and overcome any hurdle until you reach your goal of business success.
“A warrior with a cause is the most dangerous soldier of all.” – Michael Scott
Everyone’s idea of business success will not be the same. Someone’s idea of business success may be having 500 visitors a day to their website, while another may feel like 1000 visitors a day and another may feel like 5000 visitors constitutes business success.
Also, when it comes to monetary terms someone may feel like earning $2000 a month from their website is being successful, while someone else may feel like $5000 a month and another may feel $10,000 a month constitutes business success.
Enemies To The Warrior Way
Whatever your idea of business success is you must stay in a warrior’s state of mind to reach your goal. Your enemies will come to try to defeat you, these enemies are:
- Fear of Failure
- No Drive
- Competing Against Others
- Not Focused
- Easily Distracted
- No Discipline
- Negative Attitude
- Not Determined
- Fast Food Mentality
- No Belief In Oneself
- Can’t Take Advice
- Stop Training
- Too Much Social Media
- Too Much TV
- Not Being Consistent
These are just few of the enemies that can throw you off your game, and if you can think of others please place them in the comment section below.
Important to realize that in my experience all of them are lethal to success. So, I can’t begin to say that one is worse than the other. Your thoughts what do you say? And how can we get rid of these enemies to success?
You’ve Got To Love The Grind
What is the grind? The grind is the work! You have to be willing to put in the work. Whatever you’re after put the time in. There are no short cuts. There are no steps you can miss.
You’ve heard it said that if you love what you do it will never feel like work. I believe that whole heartily. It’s going to take blood, sweat and tears to reach the top. All out effort. Day in and day out. Up early in the morning and going to bed late. Putting in work pushing to be the best at what you do.
“Victory is reserved for those who are willing to pay its price.” – Sun Tzu
There have been plenty of days when I’ve look up and it’s 10pm or 11pm and I’ve not eaten anything all day. I’ve just been in front of my lap top writing. I love to write so putting out content never seems like work to me. Speaking of which it’s almost 6pm and I’ve haven’t had a bite yet.
My wife constantly tells me, “that’s not good.” “You have to take breaks and eat.” I tell her, baby I try, but when I get in the zone, I lose track of time.
Equally, the same when it comes to building a website. I’ve watched the sunrise a few mornings because I’ve been building a website all night. When you love what you do it’s exhilarating!
“A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does.” – Dan Millman
To be sure you have to find the niche you love, something that excites you and not just because you feel it’s a good way to make money. Yes, I know you want to make money, but if you don’t love what you’re doing you’re not going to work at it hard enough to make any.
For this reason, I believe that when you love what you do it’s easy to defeat the enemies of success. Thus, when they rear their ugly head, you’ll give them a front snap kick of persistence to their ugly mug.
How To Stay Motivated Warriors
Motivation begins in the mind. How you think about what you do will either inspire you or hinder you. When you understand that power comes from within (your own mind) you will know how to stay on track.
Scientist say that the mind cannot tell the difference from a real experience or an imagined one. That is why coaches tell athletes to visualize their performance. Visualize your outcome. See and feel how it will be to become a success in your chosen niche.
Mind is not only the creator, but the only creator of all there is. The circumstances you face, the obstacles in your way or whatever may arise must be dealt with in the mind.
How do you honestly feel about the future? Are you excited about the possibilities of owning a successful online business can bring? Do you think you live in a better world today than you did 10, 20 or 30 years ago? Your view of the future and the world around you will either help you or hinder you from achieving the success you want.
Incidentally the media will feed you the fear of scarcity. There are to many people in the world. The resources of the world are dwindling. That lack and limitation are everywhere.
“We chose whether to be warriors or to be ordinary.” – Carlos Castaneda
As a result, you buy into the scarcity mindset, and at the first few drops of snow flakes you run to the grocery store and buy up the milk, bread and water thinking they may run out and you not have enough in case you get snowed in. The majority of the time it never happens. Have you ever been snowed in without any food or water let us know in the comment section below?
Usually this is the technique the scammers use to get the unsuspecting person. They make the person feel if they don’t buy there product right now, they will miss out on making $1,000’s and $1,000’s of dollars. HOGWASH!
The moment you realize the world is more abundant than you thought. There is more than enough to go around in your life, the life of your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren and beyond. Things will start happening for you, because this little change in mindset is the key that open doors to opportunity.
There is more opportunity than ever before. The world’s biggest problems are world’s biggest opportunities.
Take Control of Your Self-Talk
You constantly talk to yourself whether you are aware of it not. You are bombarded daily by the media, by conversations around you and conversations you are engaged in. Thus, it sparks conversations you hold with yourself whether positive or negative which most are unaware.
Become in tune with yourself what are you thinking? Being aware of your self-talk will set the tone as you go about your day. Positive self-talk is a great motivator in keeping you moving forward.
Take control of your negative thoughts. When a negative thought enters your mind replace it with a positive one by sounding the positive thought out loud. By hearing your own voice speaking in a positive manner will shift your mind into positive thinking.
Get rid of stinking thinking. Change your thoughts and change your life. Change your perspective and you alter your reality.
“The path of the Warrior is lifelong, and mastery is often simply staying on the path.” – Richard Strozzi Heckler
In conclusion in order for things to change you must change. The only constant is change. You can no longer sit back and relax. You have to keep learning. Constant education.
You are living in a world where anything is possible. That alone should get you excited! Your mindset matters. Mindset is everything. Mindset rules.
To get what you want success is in the grind warriors come out to play. Love the grind, grow, build and learn. Keep moving forward, standing still is death.
You are a warrior.
