How To Trigger Daily Habitual Action
Affiliate marketing is the most enjoyable way to make money I’ve ever found. Notice I didn’t say affiliate marketing is the most enjoyable ‘job’ I have found. To me its not a job, it’s a lifestyle that pays me a very high income for simply helping others find what they’re looking for.
What makes affiliate marketing so enjoyable to me is that I can work from anywhere in the world that has internet access. But that also means I’m bombarded by all of the distractions that the wonderful interwebs bring me on a daily basis.
For you to be successful at internet marketing you must learn how to be extremely selective and focused. Too many of us get caught up in the shiny new object of the week that is allegedly making money in our business. We drop everything we’re doing and hop on the hype wagon until the next shiny object pulls us in a new direction. You must avoid this at all costs especially if you’re just getting started.
What you need to do instead is learn a simple trick that will help you maintain focused action that will become habitual.
“Every habit you want to build can be broken down into a sequence of steps.
For example, a gym workout can be broken down into the following steps: getting off your butt, changing your clothes, putting a gym bag together, traveling to the gym, doing your workout, showering, and going home.
You know working out is good for you but when it comes time to exercise, your brain doesn’t just see the glory part of the process where you’re pumping iron like you’re training for the next 300movie— it sees all the before and after steps too. Because our brains love taking the path of least resistance, these before and after steps are often seen as barriers.
You know you should workout today but your brain is telling you things like,
Don’t forget about the time it takes to drive to the gym, pack your stuff, do your workout, and travel back home. That’s going to take hours. Do you really have time today?
When these thoughts pop in your head it makes it easier for you to justify not working out and can lead you to believe that maybe you just don’t like exercising (even though you know it’s good for you).”
