Just like with sports, lots of the fans can discuss the minutia and details of IM better even than some of the most successful practitioners in the IM field, but for what? About 95% (or more) of the people reading these words right now are the "armchair quarterbacks" of IM.
Am I right?
Just ask yourself a question right now and be honest.
Are you an Internet Marketer, or just a fan?To answer it, ask yourself another question:
Are you selling anything?If the answer is "no" then you're just a fan. Period.
Go ahead and try to argue with it. If you're not selling something, you're not marketing. If you're "getting ready", you're still in the locker room. The game is out on the field. You aren't playing if you're not on the field.
Now that you know, decide if that's what you really want to be in the game or not. IM can sustain a fandom. It's okay to just be a fan. It's okay just to like this stuff without ever using it. Maybe now that you realize you're just a fan, you might actually be able to make better buying decisions, and actually enjoy IM as a hobby without the stress of not succeeding in a big way. If that's the case, you're welcome.
But for everyone else, I'm calling you out.
Because there's an important way that IM differs from sports. In IM, we make our own teams, our own leagues, our own games. You don't have to be called up to the big show.
If you find yourself just a "fan" and you want to get in the game, YOU CAN. Start today. Just get up off the armchair and actually go be a quarterback.
So what will it be? Are you going to be "Like Mike" and "Just Do It" (lol) or are you just going to watch and relax? Up to you.
I'll say it again in case you read that too fast: IT IS UP TO YOU.
P.S. This message brought to you by the time I accidentally watched a bunch of football because the Saints are winning and I'm from Louisiana so I have to watch.
