A few years ago, I was in so much debt I was in a constant state of panic. You see, when my now ex husband and I decided to part ways, I was living in Europe with him and had no real income of my own.
Sure, I was a freelance writer. But truthfully, I wasn’t making much money. I also had no residual income sources, which I definitely regretted. I ended up charging everything while I sorted the rest of my life out.
Believe me when I tell you this – I took the WRONG approach. It only made things worse.
I remember the moment I realized I hit financial rock bottom. I was at McDonald’s and I couldn’t afford the chicken nuggets and fries I had ordered. Yup, I realized I had reached a new low when I had racked up so much debt that my credit card got declined at a fast food restaurant.
Something needed to change but I was definitely at a loss for where to start. This is actually when I began to panic. How could I possibly make the money I needed to reverse my financial situation?
Things went from bad to worse. I thought I had the answer once again.
I started buying eBooks and product systems for making money online and none of them seemed to work. It was very frustrating. I would start websites using a certain system, get bored with it, and then move on.
All this really did was sink me even further into debt.
Besides, I was jumping around from one thing to other. My lack of focus also prevented me from succeeding.
That’s when something magical happened. I realized that the “next best product” wouldn’t solve my problems. Only I could change my situation. I realized that I had to work on changing my mind first.
I needed to develop a mindset for success. But how?
The answer came to me the day I discovered Tony Robbins, the motivational coach. There’s a ton of recordings and videos out there that you can watch for free. This is one that I watched all the time and it’s the number one thing that has made a huge difference in my business.
Once I started listening to it, I eventually developed a business model that I loved and I started making real money. Developing a mindset for success is the most important part of running an online business.
Let’s hear what Tony has to say about this topic:
