I was talking to my personal trainer the other day and we were talking about what it really takes to be super successful as an athlete.
I mean what really separates someone like Kobe Bryant from an average NBA player? Anyone who plays for the NBA is obviously a top top athlete at that level.
My personal trainer, who competed at the national level for the 200m and 400m in track, told me about a concept that his coach taught him called the “pain threshold”.
Every athlete has a pain threshold at which point there body starts to shuts down. They become tired, fatigued, their performance drops. Top athletes are able to continually push their pain threshold higher and higher until fly past everyone else.
Breaking through your pain threshold is 100% mental.
There’s a pain threshold in ppc affiliate marketing as well.
Whether you ever become a super affiliate all depends on whether you can continually break through your pain threshold, pushing it higher and higher.
Every single person that I’ve coached and that has failed, has failed because they couldn’t handle the pain.
They quit after 1,2 or 3 failed campaigns. They hide under their bed and tucked their tail under their tail between their legs like a scared little puppy dog.
Don’t be that scared little puppy dog 6 months from now.
Yeah, you may feel confident right now, you’re excited. But can you handle getting the wind knocked out you a few times?
I went 15 campaigns with NO RESULTS.
What if I had stopped after the first 10 failed ppc campaigns and said : “This business is a scam, ppc affiliate marketing doesn’t work!”
Don’t for a minute think that becoming a super affiliate is going to be an easy ride. There’s time when a lot of doubt will creep into your mind.
There’s times when you’ll feel really frustrated, and even anger.
As long as you get back up every time you get knocked down and learn from you mistakes, you’re breaking through your pain threshold.
Can YOU handle the pain?
