Here’s Dean Holland revealing the specific entrepreneurial mindset he needed to adopt in order to transform his life and business from the brink of disaster, to the prosperous and expanding business he runs today for all of us at Internet Profits.
“Today I want to discuss probably one of the most important things that online entrepreneurs need to hear, but very few actually want to listen to.
The Entrepreneurial Mindset
Good morning, welcome to another episode of The Drive. So yesterday was my birthday and it sparked off a whole time of reflection and thinking.
Looking back to how much has changed, it was only nine years ago when I was at the lowest, worst point in my life.
I was 24 years old. I was over $60,000 in debt. I’d been chasing the dream of making money on the internet for four years at this stage. I had five credit cards, all pretty much maxed out, and two bank loans. And…
I Was So Afraid And Ashamed
…of what I’d done and what had gotten myself into that I didn’t tell anyone of the debts. And so I was living this complete lie!
Now yesterday, I was talking about this with our Certified Partners on a Facebook Live in our private group. I was on there for 30-40 minutes, and I was talking about all of this.
I was sharing what I’d been reflecting on, sharing the key things. And the conversation came up like…
What Was The Real Turning Point…?
What was the defining thing? And whilst I could say many different things – I spoke about it in yesterday’s Drive actually – I gave some big millionaire business tips that helped me turn my business around.
Whilst I could say all of those tips, like; getting a mentor, not going it alone, learning from people that are already doing what you want to do.
Whilst I could say all of those tangible things that can be seen, and felt, and purchased, there’s one thing above all – that without this, none of the rest of it matters.
Without this one thing… it doesn’t matter how many great mentors you get to teach you business…
It Won’t Make A Drop Of Difference…
…if you don’t have this one thing – the right entrepreneurial mindset.
It doesn’t matter what great strategies you get. Doesn’t matter how great you are at buying traffic, or advertising, or creating products. None of that matters if this one other thing is lacking.
And like I said in the introduction, this is the most important thing people need to hear.
But it’s one of the things that the least amount of people, in my experience, want to actually listen to.
So, What Am I Talking About…?
I’m talking about a specific entrepreneurial mindset. I see it over and over again. And there’s a saying isn’t there, it’s like, “Change your mindset, change your life.” Because change really does start within us.
If you do not have the right entrepreneur mindset, you are doomed! You are not going to succeed until you change that.
For four years I chased this dream of making money online, and I desperately chased it, frantically, desperately trying to make money online.
And, y’know, it only changed when I changed… When I realised I don’t need to just try and make money online, I need to try and find a way to give value to people. And by giving value I’m able to get value back in exchange, okay? You need to realise you’re building a business…
You Need To Give Value!
And really what I’ve found is over the years is, the amount of money that I make is in direct proportion to probably two things;
1. The amount of value that I give, and
2. The amount of offers that I make.
I can’t just make offers without value, because they won’t work. And I can’t just give value and not make any offers, that won’t work either!
And so there’s the thing – that’s the key, right…?
Change Your Mindset, Change Your Life
My income is directly proportionate to the amount of value I give to my marketplace, and the amount of offers I make to my audiences.
So I hope that gives some value.
Remember, your entrepreneurial mindset, your approach, the way you think about things, is the defining factor between ‘no success’ and ‘success’. Or the defining factor between a little success and life-changing success, okay?
So have a great day. This is of course Dean Holland. I’m here at the Internet profits HQ. Have a great day and I shall speak to you again in The Magnetic Secret To Build A Successful Online Business, another episode of The Drive.
