When you are starting your business from the ground, you will probably face a lot of dark times. Things might not be going the way you intended, you’ll be short of fund, and have your hands full keeping everything together. It can be demotivating, and it one of the major reasons most entrepreneurs quit within their first year.
It is part and parcel of the business world, and the only way to deal with it is through a positive mindset and a will to move forward.
MOBE founder, Matt Lloyd, like any other entrepreneur, is no stranger to those dark times. When he started his online marketing business back in 2008, he didn’t make any commission for months. Even after investing heavily and putting in 10 to 12 hours a day of work.
Protect Your Investment
One of Matt Lloyd’s most motivating factor during those days was the investment he had made into the business. He says because he’d put in not only a lot of money, but also a lot of time into it, he was resolute to see it through to success.
When you are facing difficulties with your business, think of the money and time you have already invested in. You have come as far as starting your business, a step many people never reach. Now it’s the time to buckle up and protect your investment.
Take Courage from Others
Because he could see other people who had become successful in the business he had invested in, Matt Lloyd said he knew success was possible, and that motivated him. As a MOBE consultant, you know there are a lot of other MOBE consultants who have made hundreds of thousands of dollars with the MOBE affiliate program. Research and evaluate your strategies to find out what they are doing to succeed, and reinvent your approach.
Be Deaf to Outside Negativity
Matt Lloyd says one of the things that helped him develop a resolute mindset was the people around him that told him he couldn’t succeed. There will be people around you who don’t understand or believe in what you are doing, or they are just trying to look out for you, so they might try to steer you towards another path they think would be more fruitful for you. Focus on your business and goal for success, and ignore all the outside noise.
A positive mindset will get you through the hardest of times in business. Be clear of what you want to achieve and go for it. It might take a little longer, or be a little harder to get, but resolve to get it. If your first attempt doesn’t work, go back to the drawing board and evaluate what you can improve to achieve your goal.
