Igert le Roux EXCELLENTLY reveals to us the little secret to succeed!

Welcome to yet another wonderful Thursday. Today, it’s all about a blogger here on my blog. Last week, we connected with John Vanderlaan. Of course, there were several others before John. Here is the list.

Blogging connects people. If you do it the right way, you are going to network with pretty nice folks all over the world. And if you treat it like a business, you are going to be able to pay your bills, go on vacation anywhere in the world, buy the car of your choice, build your dream house, etc.

But it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme! A lot of work has to be put in. Of course, it should be a business where you plan and strategize.

So back to meeting someone awesome!

Connect with Igert le Roux

Igert le RouxIgert was born and raised in South Africa. He lives with Dee, the love of his life and two dogs in the coastal city of Port Elizabeth. This is a place where you can watch lions in the wild and see dolphins play in the surf on the same day.

He likes to travel and visited the USA as well as several countries in Europe.

Igert grew up at a time when politics were very much the dominant news of the day in the country. He went on to get a political science degree and became especially interested in political leaders and what it is that sets them apart from their followers. The study of politics and politicians taught him the value of belief in yourself and having people around who support you.

He loved to write and journalism seemed obvious as a career choice. Life took him on rollercoaster ride involving writing news for newspapers, magazine and radio.

He experienced anything and everything from reporting on age-old cave paintings deep inside a mountain to touring his country while reporting on a cycle race.

The cherry on the cake was becoming a lecturer in journalism.

This brought an in-depth understanding of the process of communication and the problems young people sometimes have to communicate forcefully. He realized that many of them lacked belief in themselves and saw how this kept them from realizing their full potential.

It was during this time that he began his online journey by writing articles for several websites and publications. Even though writing was in his blood he wanted more of a challenge and found it in online marketing. After all, what can be more challenging that getting involved in an industry where more than 90 percent of people fail?

He made the same mistakes everyone else did in his early efforts to succeed online by believing too many promises and buying too many products.

In 2015

Things changed for him when he got the services of a mentor. Suddenly he found perspective.

Through his blog he tries to create awareness that all the knowledge in the world plus excellent writing skills are not enough to bring success as an Internet marketer. Marketing takes place on an emotional level. Leaders in marketing, like leaders in politics believe in themselves. They are the ones who can touch emotions. Through their confidence they radiate an energy that can make magic happen.

It is this lesson that he uses as a point of departure in his training. You have to have self-belief and confidence to be a leader and become a bright star in the vast galaxy of the Internet. You must know the challenges of the online world and be willing to walk many extra miles to do what it takes to overcome them.

He believes the ingredients for a success recipe are:

  1. Start with the right mindset,
  2. Know the challenges of the world around you.
  3. Also know that you can overcome them. The human brain is the most powerful instrument there is. You have one.

You have no excuses.

  1. You only have to know one little secret. It is called the right attitude. If your attitude is “I want to” then you won’t. If your attitude is “I have to”, you will.
  2. Create good content that helps people. That is what leaders do and that is what will bring people back to your site.
  3. Make friends online. You need them and they need you.

Mixing these ingredients into real success starts with confidence. It ends with making the sale. The part in between is called determination and consistency.

  1. The ability of seeing the challenges in the world and trying to solve them by providing quality content is one of the keys to success in blogging

  2. Hi Igert,

    I hate politics. It is good. But in Ghana here, politics is dirty.

    Politicians insult each other. Do all kinds of things to win.

    You’re good. Maybe that’s why you couldn’t pursue it further.

    A journalist is supposed to be honest. No wonder you’re one. It is within. I see it in your writing, sir.

    And Out of the 6 ingredients for success, I found these 3 to follow:

    Right attitude
    Create good content that helps
    Make friends online

    Thanks for letting us know who you are, Igert. I’ve learned.

    • Hi Francis

      Thanks for your comment. I agree with you that politics can be dirty. It can also be boring. Ever tried to sit through a whole day of discussion in parlaiment about something that does not interest you at all? It is difficult to stay awake. The idea of doing that day after day never appealed to me.

      Honesty in journalism is indeed as important as it is in Internet marketing. If you tell people you give them the facts then do it.

      Build your content on the three aspects that you have mentioned and it will be worth reading.

      I am glad you have learned from the post.

      Stay well.


  3. First of All, Thank You So Much to Introduce IGert. that’s very important to get success for setup mind, than everyone get success as well. Thanks for shared helpful and most beneficial knowledge.

    • Hi Asif

      I am glad you have found the information helpful – but then that is what Enstine is about: always helping others.

      Yes, the mind is so powerful. Clean it from everything that can hold you back and you can achieve a lot

      Stay well


  4. Hello Igert.

    Great to connect with you.
    Thank you for involving us in your life, I am really inspired.

    The point is correct, mindset is really takes an important part in success journey.

    Again Nice to meet you Igert.


    • Hi Priyam

      Very happy to meet you as well.

      I am glad that you agree that mindset is so important. Believe in yourself and give all you have everyday. That has always been the way to achieve success and will probably continue to be for as long as there are human beings on this planet. If you want it so bad that you can’t do without it, chances are that you will get it.

      I see you have a quote from Wreck-it-Ralph on your site: “There is no one I’d rather be than me.” That is exactly the mindset we should have.

      Go well


  5. Hi Enstine

    Thanks for introducing us to Igert. I look forward to checking his blog.

    You made the point about attitude. I reckon it’s 90 percent of the game. People can learn techniques till the cows come home (great Aussie saying), but if there are mental blockages forward progress will be limited, to put it mildly.

    Thanks for all the good work you do, Enstine


    • Hi Kim

      Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. It is very true what you mention about mental blockages. They can stop you in your tracks.

      Allow me to echo what you said to Enstine. Great guy doing great work.

      Stay well.


  6. Hi Enstine, Pleasure to meet you. 🙂

    Thanks for meeting such a great personality of blogger, Igert. Great mindset to be a successful blogger. I love this post. I enjoyed lot reading this informative post and it fulfills me which was necessary for me.

    To become a successful internet marketer in this competitive world, these mindset are highly necessary. Having perfect and right attitude boosts the human brain to do better for people.

    I sincerely appreciate you for sharing this post.
    Have a good day ahead.
    – Ravi.

  7. Love to connect to new blogger
    it’s definitely great to know more about their social profiles. And it’s great to introducing us to Igert, keep looking for great bloggers.

  8. Hi Enstine and Igert,

    Yet another inspiring blogger you’ve found for us to connect with – I’ll pop over and have a look at Igert’s blog because I like what I hear about him.

    I know that I need to work on that “marketing takes place at an emotional level” comment. I KNOW it’s true, because I buy more on emotional triggers than by logic, but (with my computer programming background) I have difficulty in transferring that to my own marketing.

    I look forward to seeing what Igert has to teach me, and thanks for the “introduction”.

    Have a great weekend,

    Joy – Blogging After Dark

    • Hi Joy

      I agree with you that it is not easy to swith into “emotional mode”. After all when you go into a shop the salesperson does not burst into tears. or sing a happy song to persuade you to buy.

      Nevertheless emotions do come into play. You look at the product and touch it. Your mind paints a picture showing how this product will help you in your daily life.

      There is no logical reason why You buy the red car instead of the white one when they have the same price tag. Somewhere inside your emotional world the red one just speaks with a louder voice.

      To trigger that sort of response online is almost impossible. One thing is certain: when you want to speak an emotional language, sales talk is not the way to go.

      Thanks for highlighting a vital point.


  9. Hi Enstine,
    Your article is good as always, Those tips are useful and efficient in all platforms not only for bloggers but also for writers too. Thank You for revealing little secret.

  10. Hi Enstine,

    I totally vibe with Igert’s approach. Here’s why: it’s focused heavily on energy.

    All the practical tips, knowledge, know how and insights on earth can’t help a person who’s blind to them. Because if your energy is mired in fear, worry, doubt, and painful experiences from your early years, you will ignore good advice. But when you clear these energies through meditating, through exercise, prayer and other techniques, you’re free to become the brilliant person you are because your energy will skyrocket through the roof.

    I loved this post Igert and Enstine.

    Thanks much for the inspired share.


    • Hi Ryan

      Sometimes I don’t understand the world. It is astonishing how many people out there hear nothing but criticism day after day from childhood. This results in a low self-esteem and people who do not like themselves hide in dark corners.

      It goes against every rule of effective communication to be judgmental of the other man’s words and actions especially if they don’t affect you. Yet some people thrive on it and leave deep scars in the process.

      Healing psychological damage is not easy but we owe it to ourselves to move on and discover the world of potential inside ourselves.

      Glad you liked the post. Great comment. Thank you.


  11. Hi Enstine,

    You bring the talents on every Thursday.

    I like what Igert think about starting with the mindset. The goal should be clear so that you can work in that direction.

    The right attitude is needed. There are no excuses for anything.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
    Have a nice weekend.

    • Hi Ravi

      I think mindsel is the biggest single reason why so many people fail online. They want to play the game called Online Marketing. The truth is that it is a job, not a game.

      When you have a boss you get fired if you don’t do your job. You get promoted if you do it well. The mindset should be to work and grow, not to play.

      This fascinating world of Internet marketing offers many challenges, Meet them head on, overcome them and you have not only taken your business forward, you have made yourself stonger.

      Thanks for the comment
