I get several emails every day from people I’ve met at seminars, or who’ve found me on Facebook or Twitter, people who are new to Internet Marketing and only looking at it with awe-stricken eyes and nothing more,
It’s almost as if someone’s deliberately put them in some kind of trance to make them believe that the Internet Marketer’s life is what it’s all about, like it’s an easy trade, like it’s really just down to sitting down over your computer every day and work for a few minutes..
It’s so sad to see these people enter the Internet Marketing industry with this mindset.
None of that is true. The life of an Internet Marketer is a constantly evolving place, new things to learn every day, new ways to keep up with the competition, new niche markets to explore and tap into, new products to brainstorm, new updates to work on for existing products..
The Internet Marketing world is a very challenging, very very tiring place, I’ll tell you that 😉
I’m not judging, but have you ever thought about getting into Internet Marketing because for some god-forsaken reason you think it’s the easy way out?
I promise I won’t judge, I’d actually like to sit you down for a cup of coffee and talk some sense into you if that is the case, seriously, no jokes here 🙂
The key to being successful in this industry is to first inspire yourself to push yourself to the absolute limit, because that is exactly what you will end up doing when you dive properly into this whirlpool of challenges and rewards. Don’t get me wrong, it is a very rewarding place if you structure your approach to it right, but if you don’t follow a plan, don’t work hard, think it’s all that and so easy to do, you will undoubtedly find yourself sitting with your head between your knees wondering what you should do next, eventually get sick of it all and go find yourself a day-job (which is NOT AT ALL A BAD THING)
Most of these “guru” chaps make you believe day jobs are evil – they are not, they are like any other job, like Internet Marketing is a job, a job that will take you from your day job’s 9 to 5 routine to a 9am to 5am routine..
Internet Marketing is a tough practice, and to ever get anywhere in this industry, you must first “inspire” yourself into working much harder than you’ve ever worked before. This industry comes with its rewards, but it comes with a massive surge in hard work and constant learning.
Inspire yourself to learn more, to seek out within yourself, the urge to succeed, by hook or by crook ( that does not mean you start scamming people btw 😉 – it implies that you will go to great “ethical” lengths )
Inspire yourself to engage in challenges where you know nothing about what you’re up against, yet you want to sit down and learn everything there is that needs to be learnt, for you to challenge those challenges back.
Inspire yourself to win, no matter what.
Inspire yourself to face failure with gratitude, learn from it, swallow the pain, and move on.
Inspire yourself to take those 9 out of 10 failed products that you WILL UNDOUBTEDLY build, and turn what you’ve learnt from them into that one amazing product that will turn into your long-term online business offering you continuity forever.
Just.. Inspire yourself.
And see what the tide brings in 🙂
