When I think about, are you up for the challenge, I experience a range of emotions. I feel excited and motivated but I also feel apprehensive, scared and intimidated. I think this is normal because at this point you really don’t know what the challenge is. What do you feel when someone asks you if you are up for the challenge but you don’t know what the challenge is?
In order to grow in our online marketing business, we have to take on challenges. If we continue to do the same things day in and day out, we stop growing. Also, those things may stop working. If you don’t take on the challenge to grow your list every day, you will not continue to grow your income. You need so-called “fresh blood” to expose to your wonderful ideas and products.
If you are really stretching yourself, challenges can be scary. They can take you way out of your comfort zone. If you are an introvert presenting in front of large group of people can be scary. If you have never created an information product before, actually marketing that product can be very scary. What it no one buys or what if people buy and then refund?
A lot of times the things that hold us back in our business have nothing to do with ability and skill. It has to do with mindset. We play all types of negative scenarios in our head which stops us from moving forward. What is the worse outcome that could happen if we step up to the challenge. It won’t be catastrophic.
The best way to move your business to the next level is to think about all of the things that you would like to do but are hesitant or afraid to do. Write them down and prioritize them based on which ones you believe would move your business forward the most. Start with that challenge first and complete a new one every month. In six months or maybe even in a couple of months, you will be surprised how much things have changed.
Sometimes in order to really step up to a challenge you need some help. You need someone to cheer you on, keep you accountable and even work with you. This is not a signal of failure. Everyone needs help. Also, working in a group creates competition. Everyone is striving to complete their challenge because they won’t to be the one to have to say they quit.
