The following question was raised by one of my subscribers the other day: “Don’t you have to be real smart to succeed with Internet network marketing?”
It really wasn’t as much of a question as it was a statement. Believe it or not, my prospect claimed the only people who succeed in building online businesses are very computer literate individuals and/or those that carry degrees.
And she used this as the reason why she didn’t believe Internet network marketing was for her. She wasn’t computer savvy, and she certainly didn’t hold any degrees.
In today’s post I want to give you my response to this somewhat unusual objection. In fact, my answer is two-fold…
Like Anything Else, Internet Network Marketing Must Be Learned.
First of all, my subscriber’s claim is simply false. There are numerous examples of people who started out with little to no computer skills but still managed to succeed massively online.
Yours truly happens to be one of them. I had zero knowledge of Internet network marketing when I got started, and only knew how to do a few simple things on the computer like emailing and searching the web. This was no more than 4 1/2 years ago.
Internet network marketing is simply a craft that has to be learned like everything else.
But isn’t it true that some folks are just more naturally gifted in this area; that it comes more easily to them?
Sure. But I doubt it has anything to do with being “smart”. And gifted or not, if you’ve decided at the outset that you can’t do it, that’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. Then you’ve failed before you’ve even started.
Which takes me to part two of my response.
Are You Programming Yourself For Failure Or For Success?
This adage may be familiar to you but I doubt it was to my prospect: “If you think you can do something, you’re right. If you think you CAN’T do it, you’re right too”.
If you’ve already decided that Internet network marketing is too difficult, then you’re programming your brain for failure.
On the other hand, if you make up your mind that you are going to make it no matter what, and you don’t allow yourself to even THINK about quitting…then you’re setting yourself up for success.
The person with a “can’t do” mindset says, “I’ve never done any Internet network marketing before…I don’t think I can learn it.”
They are the same people that constantly use excuses like, “It’s too expensive”, “I don’t have the time”, or “I don’t have the money.”
The person with a “can do” mindset on the other hand, reasons like this: “I may not know anything about Internet network marketing right now, but I’m open and willing to learn it as best I can.”
Be honest here…is there really any way that someone who thinks like that last person won’t at least be able to get the basics of Internet network marketing?
Your ability to learn Internet network marketing depends on one person…you.
Most people, of course, have a “can’t do” mindset, which is why they never realize their dreams, never get real results…
They can’t seem to aquire new customers, never get caught up on their bills, never have time to do any of the things they enjoy doing the most…they just work, work, work, stuck on the treadmill of life, hired to build someone else’s dream.
They’re building the dream of the person who DID kill their excuses and went after what they wanted – and who, as a result, achieved the “impossible”.
When it comes to learning the basics of Internet network marketing, the real question (as always) has to do with desire. How great your desire is to change your circumstances… As another well-known adage has it, “You will either find a way…or you’ll find an excuse.”
What you may lack in computer literacy, you can make up for in sheer drive and will. You, like me, can set your mind to it and learn Internet network marketing if you really want to. And if you CAN’T, well, it’s only because YOU say so…
