self-confidence vs successHave you ever struggled with low self-confidence?

It seems that some people always seem to have an overflowing amount of confidence to tackle anything that life throws up at them. While others amongst us find that self-confidence does not come so easily.

How about you? Where do you fit in? Do you find that your confidence levels are almost always high? Or do you sometimes find it difficult to believe that you can do the tasks that are before you?

Self-confidence is not something that has come easy to me. In fact, I would say that I have had minimal confidence in my abilities and myself for most of my life.

Now as I quickly head towards my 50th birthday I want to change that as much as possible. I may not be the most talented person in the world, but that is okay. I can still walk in my passion of helping and empowering others.

The reason that my blog even exists is to help and empower those who visit this website. My desire is that you can learn from my experiences and even my mistakes to shorten your own journey to success in your life and your business.

So do you think that your success in generating an income online could be at all connected to your own personal level of self-confidence?

Well for me, I believe our confidence level is an important part of being successful in all areas of our life!

Over the recent weeks I have found my confidence in myself has plummeted. Circumstances have been challenging and stretching me and I have found myself drained and struggling. I have had days where I wondered if I had anything of value to share with anyone (through my websites or in my day-to-day life).

But on reflection, I have come to the realization that we each have value that we can add into the lives of others that we come into contact with (online and offline). This includes me too!

Over the coming weeks I will continue to share my online journey with you. This will include how I over come challenges and the steps I am taking to achieve my goals in my business and also personal life.

One thing that I am doing is changing my mindset by reading some helpful books. You can check out some of the great books by John C. Maxwell here.

One very good book on this topic is “How Successful People Think: Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life

John C Maxwell - How Successful People Think

I truly would love to hear your thoughts and own experiences. Please leave your comments below and tell me what you think.

Over the past weeks I have been sharing my online Internet journey with you. During this time you have read about some of my successes and some of my failures in creating a successful online business.

Since I began to set up my business in mid 2008 I have come to know and trust a handful of Internet marketers. There have been some that have not really had much of an impact on my journey and then others who have really helped me along the way.

One such person, who I respect greatly, is Jo Barnes.

I first heard of Jo when she was promoting one of her very first membership websites in April 2011. I was so impressed with what I heard that I purchased Jo’s flagship product and jumped in to learn lots of useful and actionable information.

Originally this membership product was named “The Social Networking Academy”. For the initial one-off purchase price of $197 we were going to receive 2 years access to all of Jo Barnes’ training. After the initial period Jo actually opened this up and changed every member’s access to Lifetime!

From the beginning I was truly impressed. Jo is full of life and energy and loves to motivate others to take action and to see results.

One thing that Jo keeps driving home is the importance of focusing on one goal and in one niche. I totally agree with her point (from personal experience) that it is almost impossible to focus on several different projects and to see the results in each that we want.

By focusing on one niche and one project then we do actually finish things and see the results beginning to come in! I learned this from Jo, along with lots of other skills and strategies.

Jo Barnes’ original membership site has now had its name changed to “The Online Marketing Academy” (aka OMA).

The doors have just been re-opened for you to become a member of OMA. This opportunity is only available until 9th June, as Jo wants to then focus on training the members who are inside.

We are going to begin with an “Online Marketing 101” course that will take place over 12 weeks. Every two weeks during this training we will also have a live webinar with Jo. These are great opportunities to ask questions, do a ‘hot seat’ or to receive some encouragement, motivation and direction to keep taking action on our own business!

From over four years of contact with Jo I honestly cannot recommend her courses enough. I truly believe in what Jo offers and know that current members feel the same.

This is one lady who always over delivers! You here that said sometimes, but in this case it is very, very true!

Inside the members area you will have lifetime access to most of Jo’s trainings that she has given over the past four years! There are also several very helpful software programs for all members to use.

I have recently used two of these software apps. One app to create banners for my website and another to create an EBook cover. These alone saved me having to go to fiverr to hire someone.

I won’t keep going on, but I do encourage you to go and have a look at Jo Barnes Online Marketing Academy.

For the same price of $197 that I paid back on 9th April 2011, you will receive access to software, training and live webinars. As long as you take action and remain committed once you are inside then I have no doubt that your business will become a resounding success!

Please let me know if you purchase Jo’s OMA membership through my link via my Contact Page. I will then send you a special mystery bonus as my way of saying “Thank you”.

Now keep in mind that if you do miss out on this limited-time offer then you may want to watch out for when Jo re-opens OMA up again in three months time (after our “Online Marketing 101” 12 week course). I am sure that after you experience Jo’s bubbly personality and information-packed webinars you will also be hooked and moving forward in your business!

Please also leave your comments below. I love hearing what my readers think.
