Do you know what holds so many people back from reaching their online dreams?
The collision of hyper-expectation and reality.
We get something built up in our mind and get that “this is it” feeling washing over us.
Which is good.
It gives you the juice to move forward. The energy to stay focused and on fire.
But understand this… And it’s super important…
When we first get an idea and get excited, our minds generate and exaggerate positive outcomes.
But things don’t always turn out as planned do they? And what should we do when we suddenly find out that the dream was a mirage?
Lain Ehmann experienced this recently.
Lain’s part of my VIP Coaching & Consulting and we’ve been working together to grow her online businesses. TrueScrap.com, LayOutaDay.com and BusinessLovePotion.com.
Lain had been killing it as she got ready for True Scrap. She had several sponsors lined up and she landed “the big fish,” ScrapBook.com. They agreed to mail for her. They have a list of 500,000
Sounds like the floodgates were about to open! But…
The mention of Lain’s event was at the very bottom of their newsletter and it only got a few clicks.
Discouragement. Disappointment. Disillusionment.
That trio of Triple D comes storming in like ants to a picnic.
Triple D can take you from the pinnacle to the pit in moments.
You’ve had it happen to you, right? Me too. We ALL have.
“This was a crazy dream I shouldn’t have thought this would work.”
“Once again I get my hopes up and get crushed.”
“Everything always turns out this way. Why do I even try?”
“I thought this was it! I cannot believe it turned out this way. This stinks!”
Triple D starts messing with our heads. We start having crazy conversations.
Lain even had some of those conversations. But… she didn’t allow those conversations to become reality.
Lain crushed Triple D with action.
She kept going.
She kept contacting folks. Kept the dream alive.
And in the past month…
1 A “Groupon” type promo was done and she sold more than 175 units of one of her scrapbooking products.
2 She pursued a speaking invitation to BlogWorld and got it!
3 Lain was interviewed by Pat Flynn – which rocks!
4 She’s hammering out a new deal with a highly popular scrapbooking lady that’s gonna be a big success.
5 Her True Scrap event was a huge success even without ScrapBook.com
That’s how you crush discouragement, disappointment, and disillusionment. You keep moving. You keep dreaming.
Is Triple D trying to knock you out?
Keep the battle lines strong by continuing to move forward. Don’t let the pit turn into a prison. Breakout by taking action.
Success is NOT an Accident!
