Q: Mike, do you think circumstances or someone’s background plays a role in success or failure?
A: I would recommend that you must not let your environment or background dictate your success. You don’t have to be a product of your environment, the place in which you live doesn’t have to hold you back. You can create wealth from anywhere in the world right now, just through the smart use of eCommerce.
Q: What is crucial for decision-making?
A: Take the emotions out of every decision you make. Emotions, whether you’re overly excited or overly fearful, can have a huge impact on your next decision that may potentially hurt your budding business.
Q: What is the role of the right mindset?
A: Having the right mindset is extremely important. Mindset can build an empire or shut down a massive corporation. The strongest mindset knows that you will never fail if you never quit.
Q: How does patience and procrastination work for entrepreneurs?
A: Don’t be a tomorrow person! Don’t ever let yourself become a tomorrow person; generally, tomorrow never comes. Something will always come up; something will always test your patience and beg you to quit. The ones that win are the ones that do all the things that nobody else wants to do.
Q: How can one overcome fears?
A: Use fear to your advantage. Be fearless when others are fearful, and be fearful when others are fearless. The average person will be fearless living in comfort and working an hourly job if you’re destined for more; this is what you will fear. Trust your fears, and let them work for you.
