One thing I've noticed about some of the more established (meaning they've stood the test of time) and successful (successful doesn't just mean financial success) Warriors is that they don't......
....complain about how they are being marketed to.
....brag about how much money they make.
....act like complete know-it-alls.
....come here and complain about their shopping cart / autoresponder/ software / etc. not working, they just seem to deal with it and focus on a solution.
....claim that their XYZ is the "best" without offering some kind of facts to back up their assertion.
....generally get into flame wars.
I've also noticed that many of them do......
....jump into threads and defend other Warriors whom they think are being dealt with a little too harshly.
....help Warriors behind the scenes and it never gets publicized here.
....stay focused on their own business(es) even with a worthy distraction like this forum.
....offer true value in terms of an incredible discount, a free report or video, or just sharing something that worked well for them.
....jump into threads that have gotten off topic and make a post to get it back on topic.
Are there exceptions to this? Of course there are we're all human afterall, but over the years of being a member here and keeping in touch with over 190 Warriors via phone and Skype, I've definitely noticed behavior patterns of success and maturity.
My hats off to the Warriors that show leadership in this forum (and outside of it), restraint, and sharing their knowledge. Also to the mods and member mods, a truly thankless and difficult job, but someone's gotta do it.
I know some of you are going to disagree and that's fine; feel free to share your own observations.
