I've been noticing a few things lately and just thought it might be a good time to get a discussion going about my observations - note, I said discussion, not argument.
The people that seem to make the least amount of money are the ones who are:
- constantly taking pot shots at the mods
- saying that everyone is picking on them
- saying that the WSO section is all rehashed crap
- calling all the gurus liars
- faking it and wondering when they're gonna make it
- saying everything is too hard because there is too much competition
- blaming everyone and everything for their lack of success, except themselves
There are a couple people who like to claim that people are bashing them all the time when in fact, it's people disagreeing with the person. Big difference between bashing and disagreeing with something. Maybe if you opened your mind and closed your mouth, instead of the other way around, you might learn a thing or two.
The people mentioned above tend to be the faking it crowd, pretending to be an expert and proving in post after post, that they are not. Then they get mad when they get called out on it and say everyone is "bashing" them.
If the WSO section is so full of crap, what are you doing in there??
If the gurus all lie, why do you pay attention or read their emails or buy their products?
All of those who think the competition is too great and the internet is saturated... yes, I'll take fries with that.
Stop blaming anything and everything for your lack of success! It's no one's fault but your own.
You want a boss to tell you what to do every step of the way, go back and get a job! If you want to succeed at marketing, in any shape or form, start using your own mind and your own brain for something other than an ear separator.
You know who's making money?
The people who worked their butts off, 18 hours a day for some, until they made it.
The people who tried something different without waiting for a guru to tell them to.
The people who didn't make excuses - they just got it done.
The people who kept at it until they got where they wanted to be.
The people who took responsibility for their own actions and their own results.
