It really is simple…
There’s one fundamental Truth that, if not embraced, will be your
Stated plainly, your success is up to YOU. (told you it was simple )
That might seem pretty obvious, so let me explain…
Until you’re willing to accept the fact that there is no magic bullet…
no tool, company, system or person…that’s the answer to your business
challenges, you will continue to struggle.
I know. I’ve been there.
Sure I did the work, I put in the time and did what I was told.
I had success, but it seemed there was always another new, shiny
object that caught my attention.
Sometimes it was a person/training program. Other times it was a
marketing system. And let’s not forget the “magic ad” or the
“headline that works”…
All that stuff helps and can work, but the bottom line is that
it wasn’t the trainers, programs, systems or headlines.
What mattered was me.
I was always looking for something to make it easier, faster or
bigger with little or no effort on my part.
I invested lots of time and money trying to find a “plug and play”
way to riches.
And in today’s market, it seems every time you turn around there’s
someone launching something or pre-launching something…or launching
something that’s the pre-launch to something they’re going to launch.
We’re surrounded by shiny objects that can quickly and easily leave
us sitting all alone with no money left to run the business we were
so excited about just a short time ago.
So what’s the answer?
Get ready…I’m gonna use some unpopular concepts here…
Study, learn, apply.
Wash, rinse, repeat.
Study the industry. Study successful people, past and present,
from all walks of life and you’ll notice common characteristics.
Find out what they did BEFORE they were successful. Like the
saying goes, “Success leaves clues.”
Study the principles of marketing, the psychology of what moves
people to want to buy from you and what that infomercial guy just
did to trigger you to pick up the phone.
Learn the skills, master the techniques and tools you need, and then…
CONSISTENTLY APPLY what you’re learning. Be willing to make changes
when and where necessary.
Push your own envelope and expand your comfort zone by learning
and implementing a new skill, technique or thought process.
And don’t expect to make $10,000/month your first 3 – 6 months.
Very few do, and many who were on top a short time ago are nowhere
to be found now. Truth.
Better to learn how to consistently earn $100/month first…then
increase it to $1000, then $2500, etc.
Face it. To reach the top in any profession, you must study and
acquire the knowledge and skills needed. Who among us would want a
dentist or surgeon who was stumbling through trying to figure out
Yet that seems to be an acceptable, common practice in our industry!
Putting in time and effort may seem like an unnecessary form of
drudgery, at least initially, but you’ll find that in the long run,
you’ll become the person you were meant to be AND have the business
that you’ve always dreamed of.
