Something amazing does happen for folks who are willing to go toe to toe with themselves.  The battle that ensues is a bloody one and usually causes casualties but if you can get to the other side, it is one of the sweetest victories you could ever have.

The problem really happens when a person thinks they can find the shortcut. This is when they start spending way to much money only to find out there isn’t really a short cut. Marketers say stuff like “we will show you the shortcut“. What they really mean is there really isn’t a shortcut, but we will tell you that to get that sale…

It’s really not the marketers fault, there just trying to feed their families the only way they know how.

If your one of those people looking for the shortcut you are at fault. Because your looking for the illusive city of gold (Micachu)

For centuries people have been looking for the city of gold, they never find it. That is what is going on online. People are looking for the easy road. Unfortunately, marketers make it sound like there is a easy road when in reality they work very hard to create that illusion.

You are not alone, there was a time when I looked for the shortcuts. I spent thousands of dollars looking for the illusive city of gold and never found it.

When you break everything down, you have 2 options. 1. You can grind your business out, by blogging, article marketing, video marketing etc.. 2. You can trade time for money and buy solo ads, ppc ads, text ads.. Those are the only 2 ways to make money online. There is selling stuff on ebay, but personally I think that is a royal pain in the buttocks, especially when you can make tons of loot without even owning a product or having to ship anything anywhere.

Did some searching on my blogs and found some cool inspiration , motivational stuff I’d like to share with you today

They say when success comes it comes fast and furious, though nothing could be further from the truth. Success doesn’t come on fast, it’s a series of small successes that come on slowly over a life time of experiences. Read More

    What about all of those floating $20 dollar bills on most biz-op websites? Isn’t that what people really want – a magic website that spits out cash just for joining a system. You’re definitely going contrarian- and I like it!

      Hey Rich, thanks for stopping by and commenting…

      …I Have A Confession,
      I had no idea what a contrarian was :)

      ..After googling it, I would have to say it is an unpopular view, but it is a realistic view.

    Larry,i think with a road block in the way one have to think that what can be beyond that obstacle.The desire to know and get things accordingly can make things better and one can survive in the hard times too ,if faith to achieve is there anyone can make money online but yes not easily.

      Hi Aditya,

      I agree knowing where you want to be is half the battle of getting over road blocks.. I think really to move past them the reward has to be worth it in your mind. That way you will do everything it takes to get over the hurdle :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting..

    Having hurdles in the path if cleared by dealing with it completely and with ease is the identity of a successful person.But if at some point of time they think that they are going to loose things and step back that’s where someone is lacking behind.
    They didn’t even know that they have chosen that path and only they can cross it whatever the condition they are in.

    • Larry Rivera says

      Hi Naina good point,

      More often than not the person who is looking at the roadblock doesn’t know what’s on the other side or how close they really are.

      The closer to our goals we get, the more it seems roadblocks present themselves… I think in this way those that deserve to achieve success do.. Those that want success don’t… I think that is the nature of things…

    Hello Larry,
    I think the concept is more clear now to have a passion into desire and I think Bruce lee is excellent example of this.
    Desire without passion is like a wish which is responded by a man who is regardless about their duty.
    Thanks for the wonderful mash-up by this post

  5. says

    I definitely agree with your point Larry. There are no shortcuts in starting a business, and being a starter is the most crucial part. This will totally test our decision-making strategies. Thanks for sharing some of the best tips you have in mind.

  6. says

    Too many people hire me because they are looking for shortcuts. I tell them there are no short cuts. They hire me anyway. Sometimes they are disappointed when it becomes apparent that there is work to do. Don’t tell me I didn’t tell you.

    When you have true passion about what you are doing, you will naturally do well and do the work. It’s that simple.

    • Larry Rivera says

      Hi Suzanne, I think some people are under the impression that if they spend the money the rest should happen on it’s own..

      ..I have found you have to spend the money and put in the effort

      Thanks for commenting..

    Hi Larry,

    Truly a post with a lot to learn and teach. I never believe in shortcuts. It is always said that there is not shortcut to success. No business can yield instant profits. A systematic planning and execution is required for anybody into business.

    Sad, most people just need to understand that they need to work for it if their goal is to become an online marketer.

    I used to think that way too. Luckily, I snapped out of it. :)

  9. says

    Come to think of it, I hit a road block every single day, in some thing or the other in my life. And the way you say it, all that matters is how much you really want that thing and that is what drives you ahead and makes you keep going despite all the obstacles. Great post, really! :)
