We all know that Yoda (from Star Wars) is a great teacher of Jedi warriors, but Yodaís wisdom can also help aspiring online marketers. Below are five of his most powerful teachings:
ďA Jediís strength flow from force.Ē
- Where does your strength come from?
Yoda is saying thereís a force, a spiritual power, deep within us that if tapped into will give us strength to tackle any situation that comes along. He knows that we are part of a larger force thatís connected to universe. We donít have to rely on our own physical and mental abilities only.
Sometimes thereís nothing like having an extra source of strength to guide us when we feel we canít move one step further towards our goal. This inner force is what can help push us over top and on to victory.
ďA Jedi must have deepest commitment, most serious mind.Ē
- How committed are you to your goals?
Youíve signed up for several good (legitimate) affiliate programs but youíre frustrated. Itís been two months and you havenít made any money yet.
So, what do you do? You abandon them and look for something more lucrative.
While you jump from program to program, have you ever thought about why you werenít successful with last one? Why are others making money with programs youíve abandoned?
Yoda knows that we must make a serious commitment to our goals (in this case: making money with an affiliate program) and stick to it.
By giving up too soon and not committing yourself to success, you ensure your own failure.
ďSize matters not.Ē
- Donít be afraid of starting out small
Yoda is physically very small, yet his inner strength and wisdom is enormous. When Yoda calls on force you can imagine how much energy must be going through that small body. Yet, he is able to control it and make it work Ďforí him.
Size doesnít matter when youíve got hidden force of intelligence, agility, enthusiasm, and determination on your side.
