Myself (left) with my mentor and great friend Bob Beckett
When getting my feet wet in Affiliate/Internet Marketing there where so many times I got frustrated with myself because I was getting overwhelmed. 2 or 3 months went by and it seemed like i was going 2 steps forward and 5 steps backwards. Now keep in mind, I am blessed to have a wonderful Mentor in this process, but I really did not take heed to what he said a lot of the time. Now with that came frustration and finger pointing on my part. I never really have been the best at taking direction in the first place. Have you ever heard of the “Always Right” syndrome? Yes, I have suffered with that through out my later years in life.
So, with having a mentor, the tools that God had given to me, and the heart I know I have inside why is nothing working?
Taking a step back and brushing away all the outside garbage I was putting on my shoulders it all came to me. I lacked clarity. Clarity is power, If you know what your going for you will get it. I have to give Tony Robbins credit for that one but it is so true. From the start my mentor said to train your mind in the morning, read,listen or watch video on someone successful,I was not doing so. I was lacking discipline when it came to listening to his direction.
Then one day it was like an epiphany , hit me right between the eyes. Sometimes we point the finger at someone else because we are not successful, when we should be really looking at ourselves. I was the problem.
Clarity is key to anyone getting from point A to point B. If you don't know what your true goal is then you won't achieve it. No matter what great idea or invention created out there they all started with a vision. You need to not put limits on yourself or your dreams, because once you do that your vision has boundaries.
So in closing, If there is something that you are very passionate about and you have the drive to make it a reality there really is nothing stopping you except yourself. You sometimes need to do a gut check to realize that, but that is all part of the process of growing and becoming better. Take your vision and run with it with clarity and drive, but listen and take heed to people who have already been to the top of the mountain, it will make your journey so much more rewarding!
