The first lesson was “Get Over Yourself” and it took some time for it to really sink in. These 3 words can change your results enormously.
What did he mean exactly? Well the first time I heard him mention this was when he was talking about making your first videos..
Every top marketer had to make their first video and most of them will admit that their first few videos sucked. You have to be prepared to look a little bit foolish in order to improve your skills.
You have to develop a thick skin. Internet Marketing is not for shrinking violets. Mike Hobbs admits that he is an introvert by nature but he had to “get over himself” before he became an expert in sharing his wisdom with the rest of us through his blogs and videos.
So whenever you are feeling embarrassed about your marketing efforts just imagine what your critics will be saying when you have gained your financial freedom and they are still doing the daily grind to earn a living.
Another lesson that I learned from Armand was to “pay attention“.
Pay attention to:
1 What the leaders are doing,
2 Trends in marketiing
3 Ads on TV
4 Your competitors
5 The emails and copy that the successful marketers are sending
7 What is grabbing your attention and that of your target market
8 Your own mindset
The list goes on, but the important thing is to be constantly be paying attention to everything that could effect your business
