I want to share with you the 3 core beliefs that you need to have in order to be successful in your online business.
Before I get into the beliefs, I want to tell you a very powerful story that I heard at Tony Robbins' Business Mastery Seminar.
In July 1985, a man named Mel Fisher found the 1622 wreck of the Spanish Nuestra Señora de Atocha, which was a treasure that was worth $500 million.
It took him 16 years of your life to find this treasure. He sacrificed so much time, energy, and money on this journey, not even knowing if the treasure existed.
This experience is a testament to Mel Fisher's willpower, determination and hard work.

For someone to spend 16 years of their life pursuing something, they have to have an extraordinary mindset and belief system. There are 3 core beliefs that Mel Fisher possessed, that allowed him to succeed and to find this treasure, and that you need to adopt in your online business:
#1 – It's There
In your business, you need to believe that the treasure is already there.
#2 – I Will or I Must Find It
Not only is it important to believe that the treasure is there, but you also have to believe that you can, you will, and you must find it.
#3 – It's Worth It
For Mel Fisher to spend 16 years of his life focusing on one thing, he had to believe that everything he was going through was worth it. Success is a journey, not a destination. There will be many ups and downs. It may take several years for you to be successful in your business, or to create the freedom that you desire. I promise you that the journey is worth it.
When I got into online business, I immediately knew that the online world was for me. I possessed the belief that it would achieve success, no matter what. That being said, it took me years to achieve the success that I have today. Those 3 core beliefs are what carried me through the challenging times.
Because of my online business, I live an amazing life. The ability to live my passion every day, and the freedom and limitless opportunities that my work provides me, are irreplaceable. Seth Godin one said, “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, set up a life that you don't need to escape from”.
There is nothing else like it. Once you get a taste of this lifestyle, you will never go back. The treasure is in your business. If other people can do it, so can you!
What's up, guys? Stefan here from projectlifemastery.com. In this video, I'm going to share with you guys 3 core beliefs that you need to have if you want to be successful online in your online business. Now, before I get into these beliefs, I want to share with you guys a really powerful story. It's actually a story that I heard at Business Mastery seminar in Las Vegas. It's a story of a man by the name of Mel Fisher.
I've got here my computer because I want to read it to you guys, but basically, the story of Mel Fisher is that in 1985, July 1985, he found the 1622 the wreck of the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha, hopefully, I pronounced that correctly, which is basically a treasure, a treasure that was worth half-a-billion dollars. Half-a-billion dollars this man found.
Here is the crazy part is that it took him 16 years to find this treasure. It's just such an amazing story because to spend 16 years of your life sacrificing so much time, energy, money, getting no return in exchange, not even knowing whether or not the treasure is even out there, everyone else thinking that you're crazy. On this trip, on this journey of trying to find this treasure, he lost some of his friends, his family members that died, and for him to still go on to find it is a pretty remarkable thing.
Mel Fisher is a really great role model for us, because, for someone to spend 16 years pursuing something, 16 years going after it and finally finding that treasure, you have to have an extraordinary mindset, an amazing psychology, and belief system. It turns out there are 3 core beliefs that Mel Fisher had that allowed him to succeed and to find this treasure. It turns out these 3 core beliefs are also the 3 core beliefs that you need to have in order to build a successful online business.
3 Core Beliefs
Let's go over what they are. The first core belief that Mel Fisher had and that you need to have as well is that it's there. Meaning, you have to believe that the treasure is there. He had to believe that there was a treasure that was out there that's worth a lot of money and that it exists, and you got to have the confidence, the certainty, and the faith that it's there. It's the same thing with you and your business. You got to have that belief that it's there.
The treasure is there in your business whether that's publishing, Amazon, a mobile app, blogging, affiliate marketing, your own product service. Whatever it is, whatever your business is online or offline, you got to believe the treasure is there. You got to believe in the potential that it has that is going to make you money. It's going to be your success. It's going to create the financial freedom that you want, or whatever it is that you're after, and whatever amount of money is the treasure for you.
You got to believe it's there. If you don't believe it's there, why even start the journey? Obviously, if you are in business, you have that belief already. At least, you have some inkling of belief with that. It might not be a conviction to the point yet where you're going to spend 16 years pursuing it, and that's why you got to have the other two beliefs as well.
1. The first belief is that it's there.
2. The second belief is that I will or I must find it. I will or I must find it. You could believe the treasure is out there, but you also got to believe that you will find it. They're not somebody else, but you will. You can and you will, and you must. You got to have that belief in yourself. You got to have that faith. You got to believe it's there. You got to believe that you will and you must find it.
3. Then the third belief which is very important, probably one of the most important ones of all, you got to believe that it's worth it. You got to believe that it's worth it. For Mel Fisher to spend 16 years of his life, could you imagine to go after something, everyone thinks you're crazy? I mean for him to lose his friends and family along the way, you got to believe it's worth it. You got to believe it's worth the sacrifice, the hard work, the hustle, the failure, everything you're going to have to go through to get to where you want to go, because it's inevitable that you are going to go through failure, that the path of success is not like this.
The path of success is like this, and you're going up and down. You're going all over the place, and in adventure, you get to where you want to be. That's the path of success. In order to go through that path, you got to believe it's worth it. You got to believe that it's going to be worth the several years you might have to go through, and in order to be successful in your business, and make money online, or create the freedom that you want.
I can tell you guys without a doubt, it is worth it
I'm on the other side. For me when I got into online business, I discovered it, I think, through Tim Ferriss, the 4 Hour Workweek, Passive Income, and then T. Harv Eker, and The Millionaire Mind Intensive, and Secrets of the Millionaire Mind book, this whole passive income thing that I discovered the Internet can make passive income. Then I discovered this whole world of Internet marketing and all this sort of stuff.
I had those beliefs, man. I had those beliefs that it's possible. There are other people out there who are making tons of money. I believed it. I believed that I will and I must make this happen. For me, there's no other option. What else is out there? For me, making money online, building my online business was the ultimate career that you could have, because you could basically build an online business based on a computer. You can travel anywhere in the world. You're making passive income.
You get to do what you love, not much can really compete with that. The alternative was you go to school or you get a job, where you have an offline business. For me, that just didn't excite me. The online world, I knew this is it for me. I got to make this happen. There's no other alternative that is an option for me in my lifetime. I had those beliefs, but believing is worth it. For me, it took me years when I got started.
I didn't make money right away online. It took me many years of just learning and trying different things and dabbling, and being afraid to invest, and being afraid, and fear, and all these different things that were holding me back before I was finally able to break through and make money online. Those 3 beliefs carried me through it. What always blows me away is when you have people are coming to me, they say, “Stef, I've been at my business now for a month. I've been at my business now for 2 months, or 3 months, or 6 months, and I'm still not successful. I'm still not rich. I'm still not making money online.”
I'm like, “Are you kidding me? Don't you realize that it takes time to build a successful online business? It takes hard work. It takes sacrifice. It takes patience.” Mel Fisher took 16 years. It took me years. Now, I'm not saying that's going to be the case for you. I'm not saying it's going to take you 16 years to do it, but it takes time. As long as you have those beliefs, that's the most important thing. It challenges a lot of people that don't believe it's worth it.
Those people aren't yet … They don't realize the value of an online business yet, because if you really understood the power of online business and how it changes everything in your life, like for me because of my online business, I'm so thankful for it because of it, it allows me to not only live a great life but have freedom. Time is a depreciating asset. It's more valuable than money because you can make more money; you can't get more time.
What it does in terms of the freedom that you can have, and the ability to travel, and the ability to whether spend time with your kids, or go to the gym, or hang out with friends, or not have to worry about money, and being able to do what you love simultaneously. There's nothing else like it. I mean if you had a time machine, and I could put you in the time machine, and take you to your future, and just have you experienced it just for a week, the success in online business, and then put you back in the time machine and take you back to your nine to five job, you would go back to your job, and you'd go like, “O my God, I've got to find a way.”
Once you get a taste of it, there's no going back to a nine to five job
One you get a taste of the lifestyle and how it can really change your life, you can't go back to anything else. There's a lot of people that haven't yet fully grasped the vision, the potential that it can have, and how it can change your life yet. You got to believe those three things, guys. It's there. The treasure is there. It's there in your business without a doubt.
It's there. It exists on Amazon, in publishing, and really to believe it's there, you just got to say, “Are there other people out there that are making money?” If the answer is yes, then it's there. If other people can do it, you can do it as well. What one man can do, another man can do. You can model or you can learn from other people. If you model their psychology, their mindset, which are the belief systems as well as the strategies, then you can also do it as well.
The truth is there's thousands of people that are making a lot of money publishing, thousands of people making money on Amazon, thousands of people making money as bloggers, on mobile apps, all different ways online. It's there. You got to believe it. Two, again, you will find it. You will be successful. You will make it happen, and beyond that you must, it has to be a must for you. You got to believe in yourself, and that is going to be worth it.
Hopefully, this belief system can help you look at each of them. It's there. I will, and it's worth it, and ask yourself, “Is there one of them that's missing for you, that you're lacking the ability to that belief that you need to develop?” Maybe it's believing that it's worth it more, or maybe believing that you will or you must or that it exists, and to work on those beliefs.
