Sometimes the hardest thing to overcome in this online marketing game are the people that are around you. After all, they are the ones that can fill your head with crap and tell you that you can’t succeed.
You would think that your nearest and dearest would rally round and give you love and support. That they would cheer you on as you chase your dreams. However, the reality for most marketers is actually the complete opposite.
Those that should be encouraging you are often the ones that leave you on the verge of giving up!
Where does the negativity come from?
Fear of progress, fear of growth, fear of change.
The first thing you have to do, to start to be successful is TO STOP LISTENING TO THOSE NEGATIVE VOICES!
You need to learn how to put your fingers in your ears and just like a child say LALALA when they start to speak.
THEY can be your friends and family, your work colleagues, your parents and even the media. THEY can also be the voices from the past coming back from places that you don’t need to revisit!
