066: Avoid and Stop Disappointment: End the Waste, Conquer Disillusion, Get the Magic Feeling Back and Become Excited About Your Business Again

Internet marketer of the week: Big Jason Henderson from BetterPostureGuaranteed.com BigMarketingOnline.com.


My big breakthrough from him: a membership site doesn't have to be a recurring forever monthly payment. You can create a single payment, or even better, a fixed term site, instead of that old and tired download page, using Member Genius.

Things Angering Me This Week

  1. Black Friday deals, discounts. It's a drug for your business. Get that quick "hit" that you pay for later.
  2. What you're trying to obtain from the discount is to get non-buyers to buy something low ticket. Get the juices flowing.
  3. I buy from you and you say, check your email for the download link. What? Send me to a membership signup so I get an email and have a lost password link for later. Member Genius takes care of all that.
  4. No support link from your sales letter or your membership site? Time to change that.

Five Things to Identify So You Can Get the Magic Feeling Back

Signal #1: Fear-driven thoughts. Have you been told to "manage your expectations?" Then you're always expecting to be let down. That's not a solution. That's settling!

Serve the needs of those who deserve it (customers), and cut out those dragging you down. Avoid lists of your failures, enemies. What's the point? We become what we focus on AND we become what we repeatedly do. There will be up's and down's in your business.

Signal #2: What's the pattern? Buy that course, find one thing you don't like with it? Refund or just don't implement? Off to more of the same stuff?

What if you implemented exactly as they showed you? Don't be smarter than the person. Who cares if you don't "like" the person. The real test: does it do what you said it would?

Signal #3: Can I just get one thing out of it? Go through it all. Do it all. Russians who copied WW2 planes. They left the dents in.

Signal #4: What can and can't you control? Don't depend on anything external for happiness. Only you can be happy, satisfied, and fulfilled.

Are you setting yourself up for disappointment, because you know you can't control it? My old reliable thought is: "what's good about this, or what could be good about this?"

Signal #5: Have a good support system. As in, a helpful mastermind, mentor, and role model. Kick out those toxic people and instead, get some positive perspective.

What's your goal, anyway? To pick up one extra thing? To master Facebook ads? To figure out how this person got 800 webinar attendees?

Quotes of the Week

  • "You cannot change others but you can change yourself"
  • "The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about." -- Wayne Dyer
  • If someone is able to show me that what I think or do is not right, I will happily change, for I seek the truth, by which no one was ever truly harmed. It is the person who continues in his self-deception and ignorance who is harmed. -- Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor

It helps to know what goal you're after, and then you can monitor those who have what you want.
