I mean, did you become obsessed and relentless and would not quit no matter what?
Did you work so hard, you skipped dinner with the family, skipped playing with your kids, skipped taking showers, skipped activities, skipped television, etc?
Did you work so hard your butt hurt from sitting at the computer, and your eyes bled from pushing yourself? Did you FORCE yourself to succeed by escaping comfort zones... working hard to where you could barely stay awake you were so tired?
Then, once you made it and the money came rolling in... and your systems were all set up and functional... your foundation solid... then you relaxed, took lots of time off, enjoyed your new freedom... but still worked hard because you wanted more and wanted to prove to yourself that you could become better and better... reaching the next level... onwards and upwards?
How hard did you work? How hard do you work?
Let's let all the newbies and frustrated people know that many of us worked our fricken a$$es off to get where we are... and that to do the same things... hard work and effort is what's needed, not magic buttons or pies-in-the-sky... but real business. real effort. real productivity... results.
Some may say, I work my butt off, 12 hours per day in front of the computer and STILL dont make money. Well, if that's you do this:
Take out a sheet of paper and write at the top of that paper: "Make $5,000 Per Month Online". Then, put the following below that title:
___ My website
___ My salescopy/salesvideo
___ My auto responder emails
___ My affiliate program for my product
___ My traffic
And, each day, when you "clock-out" from working on your online dreams of a business... mark off how much time you spent on the tasks above. You might find that you spend almost none of your time where it really matters. You might find by doing that experiment, that you actually start getting things done -- because you know that you have to fill out that little form before you "clock-out".
There's working... busy time... spinning your wheels... and there's "productive" time. And the two are not the same. And, before you say, "well, everyone says how easy it is"... well duh. That's what sells. But, that's also why so many are brainwashed into thinking this business is easy, passive, magic button like, lazy, etc etc.
Maybe you're reading too many salesletters, instead of writing those salesletters for yourself. Think of that. Ok, so successful warriors... how hard did you work? Give it up.
