We see them everyday, testimonies, money claims and aliens
Okay I am not sure why I threw aliens in that headline, but I figure every good conspiracy story has aliens 🙂 I doubt this post is gonna win any seo awards but I am not feeling professional today.
For several years I have witnessed total bullshit testimonies I have heard people use exaggerated claims in their businesses. I have always wondered why these people do it. I think the main reason why so many people have problems creating successful sustainable businesses is because there are more fakers out there than admit to it. I see “big fish” marketers, at least they will lead you to believe they are.
Promote the hell out of their business. Not caring if they are telling the truth or not. I know a few of them, I know they are lying. Yet they keep plucking people into their business. It’s like they are vultures waiting for the animal to die, then they pounce on them.
But Can You Really Blame Them?
I admit it, I use to get mad at those people because they made it harder for me to build my business. I am here working my ass off making real strides in my business.
Bringing in new members, training them etc.
Only to see some fool write some bull crap ad that is totally based in fantasy, then when they do get a person they tell that person a load of b.s that they themselves don’t practice. This is very annoying indeed. These shysters go around telling other people how successful they are. Constantly parading around the internet telling people that they are having insane crazy success. Naturally we want to believe what they are saying. So bad in fact that we end up listening to them
Then: Again we see the horror story play out. I joined X team listened to X person and I failed.
The truth is you can’t blame that dirt bag. And yes they are a dirt bag. But it’s really not their fault, it’s your fault because you bought into it. Even though something in the back of your mind was telling you not to. You did it anyways.
… I know I did
On more than one occasion…
99% of the time we have our selves to blame
Nobody likes to admit that they made a mistake. We certainly don’t want to believe we could of believed something so foolish. But we do, I suppose it’s human nature.
