I've been dealing with a lot of issues in my business lately that I traced to one and only one root cause.

People keep telling me that I need to do stuff the way everyone else does stuff.

Whether it's that thread a while back about never buying from anyone that doesn't have an upsell, or the constant discussions of how one should or should not mail a list, or the neverending "when should I post my WSO" debate...

Everyone wants to be like everyone else. And if you don't want to be like everyone else, this threatens them, and they will use whatever leverage they can to try and convince you to be like everyone else.

After all, they want to be like everyone else because that is the road to success, and your insane notion that there might be some other road means they might be wrong. And they don't like that.

I went with other people's advice instead of my gut for a while, and it's done a lot of damage. Screw those people. I'm doing things my way again.
