Ghosts That SCARE Your Business Out of You

Scare your businessI hear voices all the time.

Don’t worry.  I’m not crazy…at least not most of the time.  Muhahahaha!

The voices I’m referring to are the ones all around you..and even those inner voices from your past. 

You’re surrounded by ghosts who’ve made it their goal to steal your hard earned money and success from you.

They’ll SCARE your internet business right out of you…if you let them. 

Let’s identify a few of these common voices and what you can do about them. 

#1 – Past Peter

This voice was a biggie for me.  Past Peter kept telling me why I couldn’t succeed online, because of my background.

He says things like:

“You will never a good writer in school.”

“Remember all those network marketing products you couldn’t sell and stored in your basement?”

“You’re a college dropout.  You’re going to drop out of this too.”

What is he telling you?  

None of that matters anymore.  So many people are held in the prison of their own minds because of past failures, hurts, and mistakes.  Forgive yourself and those around you.

Move forward. 

#2 – Failure Fred

This is another voice you’ll hear speaking to you.  It’s trying to get you to quit.  Or it may simply try to convince you not to “try” at all because you could fail.

Any growth in your life or your business requires you to face some scary challenges, and Fred comes right along with you telling you all the reasons it won’t work for you.

It’s easier to just keep doing what you’ve always done instead of growing, expanding, and profiting online. 

He says:

 “What if it doesn’t work this time?”

“Is anyone really successful doing this?”

“Maybe I’m just not good enough to make it work.”

Tell him to shut his trap.  Or even agree with him.  Any good entrepreneur knows regularly failure simply means you’re learning.  Maybe you will fail…at first. 

But you’re going to make it work because you don’t quit. 

#3 – Negative Nancy

This is a voice you often hear from those around you.

Everybody knows at least one Nancy who has a negative comment about EVERYTHING around her.  It could be a co-worker, friend, or family member.  Hopefully it’s not a spouse. 

They say things like:

“You’ll never make anything of yourself.”

“You’ll always be in debt and working a dead end job because that’s just the way it is.”

“Whoa is me…why don’t we ever have any luck at all like those people over there?”

This isn’t about constructive criticism, those who give you a helping hand and want to make sure you’ve considered the options.   It’s about those who are simply negative and project their misery on all those around them.

If possible, get them out of your life.  You can try lifting them up, but that’s not what they want.  They prefer to pull you down.  Replace them with positive people with passion and a zest for life.    

#4 – Hype Henry

This is a dangerous voice in the online world.  It can cost you money, but it also can get you caught up in a never ending merry-go-round.

Wasting money on the brand new launch every day is painful enough, but what about your ATTENTION?

You can’t afford to waste your attention on every new thing coming down the road.  You need to stay focused and on target for your goals.

Here’s some of his dangerous words:

“Just push this button and money spits out your computer all day long.”

“Are you missing out by not taking advantage of this brand new cheap traffic source?”

“Don’t miss out on this secret.  You’re doing it the hard way.   This is so much easier.”

The best way to free yourself from Henry’s influence is to get off any list that simply promotes the new product launch of the day. You can’t stay subscribed to 50 internet marketing lists and expect to be focused. 

Cut out all the voices leading you astray with new hype every week.

Quit Listening To These Ghosts!

Create a plan you follow.  Then work that plan.

Stay focused.  

Surround yourself with positive voices who help you, motivate you, and push you to action. 

By the way, have a happy Halloween!
