The attitude is practice!
I read a blog post about "practicing" one's skills. The author stated, "… Practice, to me is an attitude! You need to decide to practice and keep at it until you conquer and master the skill! …" The author stated that, "… persistence can ultimately result in achieving the successes you aim for."
Have you ever heard someone say (or post on social media) that such and such business opportunity didn't work, this or that marketing system didn't work, etc. After all, they tried it for 6-weeks, maybe even two months. A new guy in a business opportunity once told me he couldn't find anyone after only two or three days into the business. We talked about what he was doing and I asked him how many people he talked to. He said he talked to three people. On that small sample size, he concluded that he couldn't do the business.
Isn't that the disease of our time? People expect instant gratification or instant results.
Internet marketing has many components, i.e., social media, blogging, websites, etc. Every one of them involve multiple skills that we need to master before we realize the desired results. We have to practice, practice, and practice again, for days, weeks, maybe even months or years before we achieve the desired results.
There was a time when each of us didn't know how to walk. We saw parents, siblings, and other children walking and we wanted to do as they were doing. We tried it and fell down on our diaper-padded bums, got up and tried again, stumbled and fell, got up again, and repeated the process. Before long, we were walking like pros, speeding around our homes with parents in tow, hot on our little heels protecting us from walls, doorways, and other obstacles. Our practice paid off when we were toddlers. So it will for one's internet marketing skills.
If you are new in the internet marketing arena, you are starting off as a toddler. You can't expect to get expert results on your first excursion when you are new. When your methods don't work the first time out of the chute, are you going to get frustrated and give in to defeat? I hope not. Seek out training and learn new skills. Practice those skills; refine them; hone them to a razor edge. Persistence and practice will pay off.
Internet (online) marketing works well when we master the components and the skills. Many successful internet marketers readily report their successes, but they certainly had their own challenges to overcome and conquer before they became recognized masters.
Successful internet marketing is doable. However, you need the right attitude. Decide to practice, practice, practice the necessary skills. Be consistent and do it daily.
Victory awaits you just around the corner. Just reach the corner and make the turn.
Remember the historic words that Sir Winston Churchill spoke during some of the darkest hours of WWII, "Never, never, never give up!"
