The Entrepreneurial Mindset and Motivation You Need for Drop Shipping
Sometimes you come across advice that is so good and inspirational, you want to share it with the world every chance you get.
That’s how I felt when I first saw a video from Issac, a long time member of the DSL community. His video is basically talking about the entrepreneurial mindset needed to overcome the struggles with building your own business. (Here’s a link to that video if you want to watch it for yourself.)
In Isaac’s video, he bluntly tells the story of ruined plans and the mistake he made with Amazon FBA. In this situation, Isaac naturally felt stressed but knew he needed to focus on finding a solution.
So instead of giving up on building this business the moment things got hard, Isaac persevered.
And that’s the difference between entrepreneurial success and failure: perseverance.
The Successful Entrepreneur's Mindset: Why Some Succeed and Others Fail
People don't hear about this often, but nearly every week there is a new project that my team and I are working on. Nothing major, most times something along the lines of launching a new product or doing a new email funnel or testing a different type of ad. Either way, before I start on a project, in my head I’m thinking I have everything figured out.
Along the way in launching these new products or testing optimizations, something could go wrong, or something might fail miserably.
When this happens, do I give up? Do I give up and say, “That's it guys, we are shutting down the business!”?
No, of course not!
Instead, I look at my mistake or failure and see what actually happened: What went wrong? Why didn't what I imagine would happen, happen?
And then I try again.
Maybe it works this time, or maybe it doesn't. And if it doesn't, I still won’t give up. I persevered, pushing on to find out why it’s not working and how I can make my project, whatever it may be, succeed.
The Entrepreneurial Mindset You Need to Build Your Drop Shipping Business
It’s almost guaranteed in life: you’re going to make mistakes. But that’s okay, because making these mistakes most often come from an aspiration to try and learn new things.
And the first time you try to implement what you've just learned from the Drop Ship Blueprint, you might think in your head, “Oh, I got this. This is nothing.”
Then you do it, and it either works, or doesn’t work.. But if it doesn’t work, what does that mean?
Does that mean you should give up on drop shipping? No!
It means you should go back, re-watch the training from the course, ask questions in the Facebook group, make modifications, and see what happens in round two. If that doesn't work, do it again, and again, until it works.
What’s unique about learning drop shipping with DSL, is you won’t have to do it alone. Working with a DSL coach is one of the easiest ways to ensure that you’re not alone on the drop ship journey. Our expert coaches work hard with DSL members to ensure they never feel confused or that they should give up. Working with a coach is one of the best ways we set our members up for drop shipping success.
HOW TO START
YOUR OWN BUSINESS

I’m not going to lie to you, it is stressful and it will be difficult. But at Drop Ship Lifestyle, we give you every bit of training you need, and not to mention the support from our entire community of members.
I am sure you know that it can be hard when you’re actually building a drop shipping business, but we’ll give you the training you need. Just don't expect to go through a video for 15 minutes and become an eCommerce expert. That's not how this industry, or the world, works.
We’re trying to teach you some pretty advanced stuff, and you’ll want to have that entrepreneurial mindset and motivation.
Getting Motivated to Succeed in eCommerce
My drop shipping method and Drop Ship Lifestyle does work, if you put in the effort. That means being willing to do what it takes to stay motivated, focused, and learn the system.
But I want to show you what type of commitment people have. Especially people that are successful with business. Just take a look at these recent screenshots from our Drop Ship Lifestyle Labs Facebook Group and see for yourself:
So if you ever feel stuck, if you ever feel demotivated, just know that the hustle, especially in the beginning, is real. You should be putting your time and focus and effort into this thing, just like all of our successful students do.
Don't give up, no matter what situation you are in. You can learn. You can keep learning and pushing.
No one is going to master anything in a week. No one is going to be an expert in eCommerce by watching a few videos. That’s why we do give you all the training you need, plus, we're here to support you.
