Creating Opportunities to Live the Life You Imagine
There is a Better Way
So I'm almost four years into creating a successful online business. And I want to share with you today the four ideas on how I've been doing that. These are the ideas that I believe are needed by everybody if you want to succeed online.
So tip number one is to meditate every day. For me, this has been an enormous help, because I believe that if you want to be successful online, 20% percent of that success comes from knowing the strategies and tactics. But 80% of it comes from having the mindset to believe that you can do it, getting rid of all those limiting beliefs of what if, what if it doesn't go well? What if nobody follows me? What if I'm not successful? What if nobody buys my courses and programs? You need to turn those around into a positive body, but in order to do that, you need to have the mindset to believe, to have the thoughts you need to have the ability to be able to see the positive that can help you succeed online. So meditation is number one.
So many people today build online businesses by paying lots of money for advertisement.
