Why Some People
Will NEVER Succeed,
No Matter How Hard They Try....
by Lee Benson
After being an online marketer for over four years, the truth FINALLY
hit me. I'd absorbed so much hype and so many worthless marketing
strategies and, worst of all, I'd seen and heard WAY too many failures
to count, that the powerful thought of realization conjured in my
I had what alcoholics would refer to as a "moment of clarity".
And at the risk of sound enthralling, my "Internet Business
Enlightenment" hit me like a brick.
What had happened?
My business buddies had come and gone in their bucket loads. My
trusted friends who once spoke with raving ambition in their voices
had died from the scene and left me with nothing more than the memories
of the hopes and ambitions that had once powered their aura.
Metaphorically, the Internet appeared in my mind like a ghost town.
The houses, that once provided shelter for the world's most motivated
ambitions, had now been boarded up and a "For Sale" sign
In literal terms, I'd seen my "best net friends" drop
from my ICQ contact list like flies. I was suddenly noticing returned
mail errors when I tried to contact my business mates by e-mail,
and the worst feelings came when I received notifications of their
intent to quit.
WHAT WAS GOING ON? Why Did I Feel So Strongly?
To put it bluntly, the ambitions that once were, died. My most
regular contacts online had quit this Internet marketing 'lark'.
Quite simply, they realized the hype.
They were sick and tired of spending endless amounts of cash on
worthless marketing techniques, wasting hours of their life on pointless
promotional junk, and getting ripped off by the "get rich quick"
nature of the 'net.
They had given Internet marketing "the finger", and in
return it had given them a bad taste that would plague their mouth
every time the phrase "make money online" was mentioned.
The worst thing is, tens of thousands of folks that I don't even
know go through the same thing EVERY year.
* And honestly, is it at all surprising? *
Every search I do for "internet marketing" churns up
100s of worthless websites, plagued with affiliate links, bad site
design and promises of millions. The limitations of off-line business
has been removed, and so has given way to a world of hype, scams,
lies and false hope and promises.
No wonder thousands of businesses are actually LOSING money online.
It's like a mine field. Thousands walk through the field, thousands
get blown up and disappear, and only a few people actually make
it safely to the end. WAKE UP EVERYONE!
You want to know WHY I'm still here after this time, owning a successful
business that I run from the home office? Want to know WHY I haven't
joined the rat-race that I see clog up the roads at 9am and 5pm
every day? Want to know WHY I don't quit, throw in the towel and
say goodbye to all of this HYPE?
1. I don't listen to any of it! Although I'm NEVER skeptical of
life's possibilities, I am realistic. Sure, you CAN become a raving
success online. But why take advice from the self-proclaimed gurus
that haven't achieved it?
2. I keep a VERY open mind to my own possibilities and have confidence
in my own judgments. I know that by thinking in a successful and
positive frame of mind, I can achieve it.
3. I DRIVE myself with a burning desire of true success, and will
absolutely stick to that at all costs. My tenacity (persistence)
grows every day, I stay focused at ALL times.
4. I work like heck and learn everything I can. Over the past few
years I've learned more than my entire school education taught me
in terms of real-world practicalities and skills.
5. No matter what life throws at me, no matter how much the circumstances
can hurt, I stand up and say "I'm not affected". I NEVER
give up. I NEVER quit. I keep striving for success.
So What Will You Become?
I'm going to tell you something now that I wish I'd been told a
long time ago. Internet success doesn't come from a few search engine
submissions, worthless FFA postings and a site plagued with affiliate
links. It comes from UNIQUE ideas, with UNIQUE creations, fueled
by an over-powering ambition to SUCCEED.
You have two choices. Join the FEW who discover that the Internet
(like so many things in life) takes hard work, smart thinking and
a positive attitude for success... Or join the THOUSANDS that follow
the hype, waste time and money, and die the Internet death.
Those two paths await. Which route will YOU take?
