When I took this ‘loser’ picture while having fun with my granddaughter Scarlett I never thought I’d be using it in a blog post, but so many people are losing the Internet Marketing game that I feel it’s a perfect fit, plus she’s cute 🙂
It’s Sunday evening as I sit and write this, and I’m seeing the usual posts on Facebook from people who are dreading work tomorrow morning.
Some of these people I know have been trying to ‘make it online’ for a number of years. So why are they now dreading Monday morning when they could have been successful by now?
Well, the main reason is they simply don’t have what it takes and have chosen the security and comfort of a 9-5 life, allow me to explain.
Out of the hundreds of thousands of people on my mailing list(s) quite a few get in touch with me, especially as I don’t hide behind a ‘no reply’ email address.
Some of the emails are from people who just want some simple advice, some want more and seem to expect me to offer hours of my time for free, some like to send me abuse because I dared to hit their inbox with an email, and some are desperate and tell me ‘John, I’m desperate and will do anything, show me how?’
The thing is, while 100% of my subscribers want to be successful, I would estimate less than 5% are prepared to do what it takes.
If you agree with any of these statements then I guarantee you will struggle online.
#1. “I want to become a success online, but I don’t want to invest any money to become a better entrepreneur.”
#2. “I want to become a success online, but I don’t have any time to learn something.”
#3. “I want to become a success online, but I don’t have anything of value to teach people and I’m not willing to learn something of value to teach.”
#4. “I want to become a success online and I will do whatever it takes unless it involves actual work.”
#5. “I want to become a success online, but everything out there is a scam.”
If you REALLY want to make 5, 6, or 7 figures as a successful online marketer, then you have to REALLY give all you can give.
– You need to be prepared to work harder than most people.
– You need to help others as much as possible.
– You need to invest in the right tools and training.
– You need to step up and become the person you need to be to make this happen.
– You need to treat this like a business, not like a hobby.
– You need to stop blaming others for your lack of success.
If you want to bitch, whine and complain about how you have no money, no time, and no value to give, then PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get out of this game because it’s not for you.
You are not an entrepreneur until you can take responsibilities for your actions, you need to step up, man up and grow up. You need to look in the mirror and realise that the ONE big thing stopping you is YOU. You need to get out of your own way.
If this post offends you, or you want to leave an angry response, or want to click the block/unfriend/unsubscribe button because I said something that hurt, then you are not an entrepreneur, you are an excuse maker blaming everyone and everything but yourself for your lack of action, rather than taking full responsibility for your current circumstances and results.
You can change everything, but you need to want it, you need to be prepared to step up and take action.
If I’ve motivated you with this post then good, as that was my intention. I know it will offend some, but that’s okay as I probably can’t help people who can’t help themselves.
