Is Taking Action The Secret To Making Money Online?

Not according to Tony Robbins.  Read on…

Over the past few days there have been a couple of internet marketing videos circulating the internet.  One video is with Tony Robbins, Frank Kern, and John Reese.  The other video is with just Tony Robbins and John Reese.

On the forums these videos have created a lot of excitement because up until now it has been pretty rare for any people in IM to have much public exposure outside of our insular, internet marketing niche.

While most people have heard of Tony Robbins — you know, that infomercial Personal Power Guy with the big teeth :) —  chances are that very few of your friends have heard of either Frank Kern or John Reese.

Frank Kern is noted for being the online marketing architect of StomperNet and his own Mass Control product which made respectively $18 million and $5 million in their initial product launches.  The figures vary slightly according to who’s counting.  Let’s just say they were in the mega-millions…

John Reese is noted for being the first internet marketer to crack the $1 million mark in a single day.  Actually it was in less than a single day although we won’t split hairs on this one either!

In one of the videos, Frank and John ask Tony why so many people fail to make money online. Tony answers by describing a kind of 4 part circular process for success.

The 4 parts are:

Potential, Action, Results, Belief.

What I found very fascinating about Tony’s process description is that I thought he was going to say the reason why people do not succeed is because they fail to take action.  That certainly has been my mantra.

However, if you watch the video closely you’ll understand that actually what causes people to fail isn’t the lack of action.  At least not initially.  It’s the lack of Belief that holds people back!

Once the lack of Belief kicks in, then the Potential, Action, and Results all start to spiral towards failure.

On the other hand, if the Belief is strong — and it can be made stronger through visualization — then the spiral is towards success!

That was a big eye-opener for me and explains why many people — and I’ll admit I’m one of them — jump from one online strategy to another.

If we just slow down and focus on believing in the eventual success of one strategy, and paying attention to the results and adjusting accordingly, then we are more likely to gain success than taking too many random actions looking for that one Golden Money Making Strategy.

Here are the links to the two Tony Robbins videos.
