Step 3: No myth. No BS. Yes, you can!
These myths, these little voices that say you can’t, that cast doubts and lame excuses; the whatifs, the buts, and every over-rationalisation, are called limiting beliefs. And we need to destroy that.
Limited beliefs, or a limited mindset, is a form of procrastination we are all guilty of. The bigger the endeavor, the more limited mindset creeps in. It works by rationalizing only one problem or a very small aspect of something enough to make you want to quit the whole thing.
But you are not scared. You are not quitting. You made it this far.
…I don’t play Warhammer/40K – Myth #1
…I don’t want to spend money/ I don’t have enough money – Myth #2
Getting enough money:
Making 160$ in 3 weeks is easy. You can e-bay stuff, you can trade old models at the game store for a voucher ( stores usually give more for vouchers than in cash ). Pick up 5 extra hours per week for 3 weeks at minimum wage.Regardless of where you are, you can get this box slightly discounted. 10% is pretty much the standard everywhere and online you can get up to 30% in some cases.
It’s also possible ( but less time efficient) to get this box for free by making trades or trading services ( i.e. I’ll paint your store’s demo for a box is the easiest example and many stores would be willing to trade it off )
I don’t want to spend money.
…I already have clients – Myth #3
Yes, you already have clients. Bully. Guess what? You will still have clients once this is over. Missing out on extra revenue and new paying clients at no cost does not come along every day.
Friday’s strategies for selling off starter sets covers the scenario where you already have clients lined up.
…That’s not how I do things – Myth #4
I love that one. That’s my favorite excuse of all time. I’ve never done something like this before, ergo it is bad.
There is method to this plan, and it covers almost every painting style. You’re approach to painting miniatures cannot possibly be so unique that it is impossible to paint a starter box and sell it for money.
Additional doses of motivation
