It is a well-known fact that a large percentage of people quit IM before they achieve any kind of success.
They believe they just can’t do the stuff that makes people successful
Who knows you might be at this point yourself.
However it is worth considering something.
When I was training to be a trainer back in the day, one of the first things we learnt was how people gained skills.
In other words the route we travel from not having a skill, through to taking that skill for granted.
We all travel the same path for every new skill:
We start at ‘unconsciously incompetent’ – this translates as you don’t know what you don’t know.
This is where you were before you even knew about IM.
You were then made aware of this wonderful opportunity to make cash online.
You now progress to ‘consciously incompetent’ – you now know what you DON’T know.
(Are you still with me….good)
OK you now look to get trained up on the various aspects of IM.
You invest in ebooks or video courses or whatever and get stuck in.
On completion of this training you are at the ‘consciously competent’ point – you now know what to do but you have to think about it to get it done i.e. you are not particularly good at it.
This is where people tend to be when they quit.
The things they need to do are still a strain, they are still having to think about what they are doing.
The skills have not become second nature; like driving a car, or riding a bike or even reading.
This is where the fourth and final stage comes.
The goal is to get to ‘unconscious competence’, the ability to do something naturally without having to think about it too much.
So how do you get to this promised land?
Yep as simple as that, just carry out the skills/tasks over and over again.
The more you do something, the easier it gets.
However what tends to happen in IM is you learn something new and you find the skill doesn’t come naturally…
…could be writing emails, creating squeeze pages etc, etc.
So you go off and find something else new thinking that is going to be easier.
Each time the learning cycle starts again…and you never quite reach the final stage.
So if you want something to become easier, just do more of it.
It’s the one time when getting to the unconscious stage is a good thing 🙂
