Why People Fail

Jul 3rd 2010 at 10:37 PM

As most of you know, I joined The Leaders Role and wow what i am learning and the live Skype group is just so awesome. One of the owners of this great group came in and added this

Kris Hanks: please list one thing that comes to mind that is a CAUSE of Failure in our INDUSTRY?

Well, talking about team work - in about 10 minutes - 28 reasons were given - this was so fun to do and to see all the reasons. Kris then gave the group an assignment - pick 3 out of the 28 and write a blog or article.

I have gone thru the list and have picked 3 that I myself can relate with I first started online.

My first one was FEAR - Being a newbie to the net, you hear all kinds of stories and the bad experiences that people have had. I was so scared that I was going to hit the wrong button and wipe out everything on my computer - I think about this now and laugh to myself at all the times that I have hit the wrong button and have deleted what I just wrote - but you know what all those oops taught me - save, save, save.

The other fear I had was using my name and my picture. Well big mistake, think about it - wouldn't you rather do business with someone you can see and learn to trust, someone you know that is a real person and not someone with a name like lollipoplillie that has a picture of a peacock for their pic. I don't know about you but the first thing that came to my mind was - wonder who this really is, is it a real person - well that is when the lightbulb finally went on and for the last 3 years - you will see my name - google nancy radlinger sometimes and you will see that I got over being shy. This is called BRANDING and this work people - let people see that you are a real person, don't be shy.

The 2nd I picked is LACK OF SKILLS - well if you are like me when I first started - this was all GREEK to me - google, yahoo, email, URL, .jpg file, HTML, keywords, meta tags, and the list goes on and on. Well, like alot of people that I have met are in the same boat - what does a person do - well google has become one of my best friends - if I have a question, get stuck - just google it - you will be surprised how many others had the same issues and you can find your answers. As you start learning your way around the net and social sites - more and more opportuntities (seminars, webinars, ebooks) will pop up if you just keep searching. I have been so blessed with all the people that I have met on here and have friends all over the world. I have learned mostly alot by trial and error (and I mean alot lol) - but lessons came out of each one of them. If you are suffering from the lack of skills like I did then find a group that are willing to help you gain the skills you need, give you the support your need and be a friend when you need one. The Leaders Role (wink, wink)

My 3rd one that I picked was MIND SET/Staying Positive. This one was very hard for me as I just came out of a 25 year marriage and a negative-attitude based family. I do believe in the power of the Law of Attraction - negative attracts negative and positive attracts positive. So after my divorce, I had a decision to make either I was going to stop being negative - oh poor me, everything happens to me, you know the type. Well, I decided that I had been given a chance to turn things around and I chose to learn to stay positive, positive, positive. I have been so blessed over the last years and now I know that I am going to have my dreams come true - it's not the If this happens, my dreams will come true NOW it's when this happens, my dreams will come true. Yes, I do have bad days but you know I can always find a positive - you just have to look. Believe in yourself.

Success lies not in being the best, but in doing your best!

When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit.
When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results."
