The big question today and the basis for this little blog-post is how to be your own chief within Internet Marketing and what might be necessary in order to achieve this.
No long banging around here, we will start right away. An absolute necessity in my opinion is to take responsibility for what is happening within your field of awareness. Because only if you are responsible for your results, if you know the risks and are still able to make always better decisions, only then you are empowered and free and can be considered your own boss.
If others are responsible, and you blame and complain, you give away your powers to them, which ultimately makes you dependent from them. There is nothing wrong with that, but it will move you away from being your own chief.
Make Short- and Long-term Plans
If you do not know what you want and where you are going, no one will know it for you, and if you do not make plans, most likely others will make plans for you. This is very much common sense, but it is often overseen; especially in Internet Marketing, which is usually easy to get started and easy to quit, most people do not take enough time getting a clear vision and a good plan to make that vision a reality.
Take the Right Actions
To take actions and to take the right actions or at least the best possible actions is also important if you want to master your life. Do not get me wrong here, actions are not the most important thing, but if you want to lead your life as a boss, you need to be able to do necessary actions, otherwise you can easily become dependent again.
The Art of Finding Solutions
Within the field of business – and internet marketing can be considered a business – the upcoming of problems is pretty much normal. For these cases you need to be able to handle problems and find solutions to it in a fast and efficient manner.
Being your own boss will require you to deal with all kinds of problems and finding smart and precise solutions. In the beginning this can sometimes be difficult, but over time you will become a better and better solution finder; it will only need some practice.
The Right Mindset
And in the same way as you should focus on finding the best solutions, you should always keep developing the right mindset. You should train yourself in seeing the positive side of things, to take challenges with the deep knowledge that you are able to overcome them, to always know that problems and challenges are here to make you better, stronger, wiser and that they will ultimately help you grow.
You need to become invincible in your mind, and as positive as you can be, moving forward from the point where you are standing right now.
The Right Knowledge
To be your own boss and in order to be successful at it, you need to know some things and other things are better not to know, especially if they do not help you in succeeding and moving forward.
This is important because you cannot know everything and wasting your capacity with unimportant things will only hold you back. But some things that are essential for your business growth – your financial situation, for example, or the effectiveness of certain actions or attitudes – are pretty crucial to know, if you want to stay in the game and be successful at it.
Those are a couple of ideas that I think are important for your success in being your own boss within Internet Marketing. There are many more, I guess, and it could be possible to fill a couple of books on this topic. But as this is a blog post, we will leave it like this.
If other good points cross your mind, feel free to share them in the comments section, as long as you can, because the option to comment here is only available for a short while.
One more thing to mention is, that you might be dependent from time to time and not be able to stay in this boss of your life mode continuously. There is hardly any human being who is always and at all times independent and in total control, and I am pretty sure that this is a good thing and so we do good in accepting and allowing this and live with it rather than against it.
