Conquering Self-Defeating Attitudes about: Discouragement
This third post in the series on self-defeating attitudes can help you combat discouragement. Whether you’re a writer, an author or internet guru, this could still be you.
“When it comes to my internet goals and objectives…”
#3 – When it doesn’t go right the first time I say forget it
The expression: “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, couldn’t apply more fittingly than to online article writing, marketing and other types of internet success. While there are countless tales of overnight success online, as a rule, becoming a successful online writer, author, marketer or entrepreneur takes time.
TIP: Since this fact remains true, regardless of what you’re striving to achieve online, stop stressing over how quickly things progress. You don’t have time to obsess over the pace of your online progress, PLUS perform internet activities effectively. You can only succeed at one or the other. Decide which you would rather succeed at, obsessing, or performing.
Obviously, it is your actual performance that is going to eventually determine your success or failure. That is one good reason why giving up should not be an option. The more you do online, the better you will get at it. With that being said, if you feel yourself getting discouraged from failing only once or twice, what can I say? “If at first does not succeed…” (You know the rest!)
