Facing Your Fears – I Still Have A Lot To Learn

The fourth post in the Facing Your Fears series discusses an overwhelming feeling that many newcomers experience. So many people struggling to create an online business never seem to get anything off the ground. Many people simply feel like they must learn more before they can start applying what they already know.

I still have a lot to learn before I can begin making money online.

I’ve felt this way before, and see this revealed in a lot of newcomer marketers. Some people feel that they can never start something until they’ve learned every nugget of information they need to be successful from start to finish.

In Internet Marketing, this will take you a LIFETIME.

Why? Because every single day there are new techniques to learn, and new technologies arising to help you. How in the world will you ever get started if you keep waiting? There is definitely a necessary learning phase for anyone newly entering internet marketing. Nobody can really dispute that. But at what point have you learned enough to start applying and taking action? Of course, only you can answer that. But this little fear can sneak up on you and you won’t even realize it until so much time has passed. It’s an obsessive thing, learning about Internet Marketing. It’s so easy to get sucked deeper and deeper into the web.

This is where you need some DISCIPLINE. You need to be serious about your business. Set aside official times for creativity and learning, and official times for WORKING. The bottom line is you need to organize your time, create goals, and focus focus focus.

Goal setting will help tremendously with many of your fears. Search online for topics like this. There are many great sites about goal setting, organizing and how to stay focused. If this is an area where you feel you‘re weak in, then create a plan to conquer this fear. Be organized about it. Give yourself a fixed amount of time to research and learn about this advice that will help you get out of your learning slump. Then use the knowledge you’ve gained, and put together a plan of action.

It doesn’t have to be a huge plan!

Even a small plan with a few minor steps will help you move away from “obsessive learning” to “organized planning, working, and learning”.


  • You don’t need to master every single technique known to man to get started
  • You should organize your time effectively, to include the things you want such as building your business, seeking out new marketing techniques, building a new product, etc.
  • Goal setting, organizing your time, and learning how to focus are key tools that will help you succeed
