Are You Being Truthful With Yourself?

Only You Know If Your Being Truthful With Yourself

There are two factors above all other factors that determines if you will be successful or you will fail.

  • Do you really believe in yourself
  • Are you being truthful with yourself

Belief is a powerful thing, are you being truthful with yourself? People tend to turn a blind eye to what is really happening. For example, there are countless people on the internet who have tried their hand at internet network marketing only to fail.

Which is okay of course. I failed for many years myself. There is definitely a learning curve in what it takes to be successful in this industry.  I always believed in myself though. The way that I believe that there is a god.

Some people say they believe something, but they really don’t have faith in what they are saying they believe in..

No faith = No belief = Failure

The reason for this is because of limiting belief, if your trying to promote something online and you really don’t have faith in the product and you don’t really believe you can actually be successful with it. The chances of you finding success are slim to none.

So the question is…

How Do You Know If Your Being Truthful With Yourself

If you are embarrassed to share what you are doing with your friends chances are your not buying your own shizzit.  You should be proud of what your doing and if your not proud of what your doing your belief in what you are doing is very low..

…Do you see the problem here?

*Belief comes before results…

It’s okay if you joined something because you thought the compensation model looked good. It’s okay if you fell for the hype hook, line and sinker..

What is not okay is that you continue going down the road you are on. You will hear a lot of things about Empower Network, that’s because people are jealous of all the success regular average people are having. They would rather keep pushing nonsense products that have no real value and talk trash than admit to themselves that they were wrong.

Nov 2011, I had to be truthful with myself. After marketing for a decade online I wasn’t where I wanted to be. I studied all the courses I could get my hands on. I applied myself. If your reading this and you have been following my blog for any length of time you know that I do know a little something something about online marketing.

… So that November something changed inside of me

I was actually ready to sell my domains and just call it a day. Actually I was just going to focus on my martial arts.  Not because I couldn’t make money online, because I was  and am now. I was getting ready to throw in the towel because I was tired of watching people around me fail all the time.

I was tired of listening to sleazy wannabe internet network marketers constantly peddling the latest greatest new biz op. In truth I was friggin sick and tired of being sick and tired. I was tired of hearing the new person who came into my business and say things like…

I am not going to spend any money on my business


This is bullshit I didn’t get any results, when in reality that was because they took little to no action to actually build there business.

Seriously folks, I don’t know why or what possesses people, but there are so many people out there who refuse to take accountability for their actions. They are so quick to blame everyone else. I am a high school dropout and I have been earning an income on the internet since about 2007ish..

I have successfully marketed many different programs in different niches.  I’ve gotten multiple streams of income from different affiliate programs.. I have always spoken the truth and I treat people in my business like they are family.

Because make no mistake, unless you are building strong relationships with the people you are working with, you will never succeed in this industry.

I got tired of hearing stupid stuff like you need to brand yourself and blah blah blah.. What you need is to get out there and earn some money and make the time and money investment worth it. What you need is solid marketing information that is being used right now. What you need is to align yourself with people who are integrity driven.

If your a newbie to the industry you should join a business with someone who has success, but isn’t so successful that they don’t have time for you. I use to think that a lot of the top marketers were just rude when I first got started out. The reality is though they are so successful and there is only so many hours in a day that they can’t really give you personal attention.

…Or they just focus their time with their top leaders.

We were all newbies at one time or another. Newbies need to join a strong team, they should also join someone who gets results. The fastest way to gain success online is through modeling successful marketers.

    I agree with you on this one Larry.

    Most people aren’t being honest with themselves nor are they being truthful. We “say” we want to make money online yet we don’t fully believe in ourselves because of our past failures.

    There comes a time when we have to step up and start becoming better then what our past says. We have to believe in ourselves enough to take more chances and we have to follow those people who are where we want to be.

    I know of your past history and you are yet one more great example that you can have all that you desire if you believe enough in yourself.

    Oh yeah, and all that other stuff has to be in place too. 😉

    Thanks Larry and I’m so very very very happy for you.

      Hi Joe,

      I am not sure if your a man or woman.. You have a womans face, however the name sounds like a guys name.. If I am wrong I am sorry..

      …But I am guessing your a female and not a mail.. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    • Larry Rivera says

      Well Edward your response makes me sad…

      You shouldn’t have to lie about being sad..By lying you are not owning the emotion, the emotion is owning you.

      You ultimately are the one who decides your fate.

    I hope this will allow the individuals to think and do a self analysis. Being truthful to the self is one important thing. Also most people assume it will be a cakewalk to earn online. Let them take your information to their head and understand in detail.
