Did the company you joined tell you it was easy and anyone can do it? No sales, no parties, no leads, just give them your money and its done!
This weekend I was looking back on what I have done this past year. What I recognized was that a good portion of people on the internet have done absolutely nothing with all the knowledge that has been imparted to them. It made me wonder why people would pay anyone money and then do nothing. It’s kind of sad. I have personally made over 130k online using exactly what I teach. So why hasn’t anyone else moved forward?
I tell all of my students that nothing will happen until you take action but I think its a lot more than that. Success does not come easy. It’s really hard work building your platform and your customer base. There is so much involved in building your business that a lot of people don’t see that when they first start. A good portion of so-called “marketers” scream from the rooftops how easy it is to build your online business when they couldn’t be further from the truth.
Don’t you just love those adverts that say you can make thousands online without doing anything, really? That’s just a scam to get your money and then once they do they leave you to figure it out on your own. Then you get discouraged and quit. Which I feel is what a lot of these marketers want. It’s just a ” body count”. Don’t get me wrong because there are a lot of good marketers with ethical morals and are truly willing to help.
I have spent long arduous hours studying, learning my craft. I have worked till the wee hours of the morning finishing up the task I didn’t get done during the day. I have watched endless hours of videos and trainings on different techniques to help improve my business. I have talked with thousands of people either helping them or getting help from them. So why have I worked so hard? Because I know that’s what its going to take to be successful. Success only comes to those who are willing to put in the work.
When I started my business I not only knew it was going to be hard I also knew it would take a while to build it properly. I figured it would take a least a year. Reality is that it has taken three years to get to where I am now. Most people quit after a year but those that truly want success know its going to take some time, possibly years, and they are ok with that.
Having said all this I have to say that there are those in my group who are doing this part time. These are not the people I am talking about. I understand there restraints due to a job and family obligations. They want the dream they are just going a little slower and thats ok too. They just want to make some extra money. Still, it takes effort and time.
Everyone who joins my team is told even before they join that its going to take work and action. I tell them all, that this will not work if you dont put in the activities. You must have an action plan and you must follow through on it every day. That is a must. Anything else is just dreaming.
The other day I was watching a video about what success entails and they were talking about successful habits. They were using Steph Curry, a basketball player,( probably the best in ther country) what he does everyday to keep him on top of his game. He comes in every morning so early that he turns the lights on. He practices until everybody else shows up for the real practice. They even told a story of one of the players was going to try and outdo Steph. So he decide to try and beat Steph to the gym. He got up so early that there was absolutely no traffic and made it to the gym long before he thought anyone would show up. So he got there and was tickled that he didnt see anyone else there until he stepped into the gym and sure enough there was Steph.
So why does Steph work so hard when he could do just like anyone else and just show up for regular trainings? Why do you think he does? He understands that to be more than average you have to do more. Thats a universal principle.
Now having said all that, just doing more does not guarantee success. Whats does guarantee success is following a proven system. Programs and systems are designed to make the process doable and a little bit easier. Most of the problems have already been worked out by those who came before you. You still have to do the work!
One of the most important things a successful entrepreneur does is they hire a mentor. Mentors can come from many different disciplines and have a wide array of solutions for problems you havent even faced yet. Thats the great thing about mentors they know what it takes. They have been through this. They have failed more times than you have even tried. As a matter of fact, if you look at most people who are mentoring they really look like , wow they have been through a lot. The difference is they saw the big picture. They saw what success looks like and it didnt scare them.
I have read around 50 books and countless articles about successful people and the one thing that I take away from all this, is get a mentor. Every single successful person will tell you that their success is due in part to some mentor who helped them. Truth.
So let me ask you one last question? Are you willing to do what it takes to be successful? Are you willing to do the work, set an action plan and study to insure your success?
If you are then you are the kind of person I have been looking for. I want to help you overcome all those obstacles from mindset to specific techniques and platforms. I really want someone to follow in my footsteps and know the success I am experiencing. Its not going to be easy but it is going to be worth it!
What is your vision for your future?
