I'm sure most of you have seen the movie Dragonfly with Kevin Costner, who finds his newborn baby in a jungle somewhere, after relentlessly pursuing clues being given by his deceased wife. Although nobody seems to believe him about the signs he is getting from his wife, his belief is so strong that it (the belief) leads him where he needs to go. . . Belief Is The Power That Gets You There!
Now, I know that most of you have heard or read about the power in belief or rather to believe in yourself, from motivational books and seminars. But this goes much, much deeper. So your saying, “what does all this have to do with internet marketing"?
To have belief in something is when your gut feeling is so strong, that you keep doing it and doing it, even when you see no light at the end of the tunnel. Your belief is so strong that it doesn't matter what people think or say because you know, however long it takes, you will arrive. This is how I felt for many months and even years before finally understanding what it takes to succeed online.
Ironically, my persistence and consistence led me to other things. It was like I was no longer in control, just like Kevin Costner in the movie. You seem to de be detached from the real world. Something else has taken possession of you. A power out of your control. That power is your ‘belief’ level. It has surpassed the comfort of your conscious mind, and has tapped into your subconscious mind for help.
You're no longer in control because your will is so strong, that it is now your subconscious mind who is at the reigns and in control. It leads where you want to go. It leads you (in internet marketing) to places you never thought off before. It even leads you (in my case) to people who've already massively succeeded online and (again in my case) because it gave me the guts to ask them for help, and it was given.
Is this powerful or what?
That's how starving actors get there. That's how teenage bands and young talented singers become rock stars. That's how Oprahs are born. That's how your so called internet marketing ‘gurus’ got there. It is the belief that if others have done it, so can you. It is the belief that if you just model and follow the path of those before you, there is no choice, the result has to be the same. Sooner or later you will find the light at the end of the tunnel. And that's what I believe.
And that is why when somebody asks me, “do you really believe that I can do this?" I always reply, “yes, cause it's belief that gets you there".
