So Close, Yet So Far


Visitors: 309

What I am going to talk about is something that happens to a lot of people trying to make it online or off-line for that matter.

They get to a certain point and then simply quit. The sad part about it is that many don't realize how close they have been to actually achieving success.

What's my point?

My point is you should never quit. Once you set your goal you should simply go for it.

People jump from program to program trying to figure out what the problem is with the program. The truth be told - the problem is not with the program but many times with the individual.

I'm not saying that every program is for everyone or that everyone does things the same way. But what I am saying is that many people are quick to blame someone or something without taking a deep look at themselves or what is truly not working.

Marketers that are currently earning any significant income on the ‘Net (or off the ‘Net for that matter) know that (1) you must never quit and (2) trial and error is many times inevitable. After awhile, you gain experience (which is a nice way of saying you have taken your lumps).

Experience is the key.

I believe that you should not chase every program under the sun. You need to find a few select programs that really work and truly work them. It is the quality and not the quantity of the programs that will lead to your success.

There are just certain tools that every marketer should have to even begin to think about succeeding online. They don't have to be the exact tools that I use, but they should be in the ball park.

Choose the right programs, use the right tools and the right techniques.

And most of all - Never, Ever quit.
