What Gave and Still Gives YOU the strenght to go on

20 replies
To.. go on fighting for every dollar. Sometimes its difficult to keep on being motivated and creative 24/7. But our progress mainly in IM is about being creative and motivated. I feel changing times - before it was about real business behind the corner, today - globalisation, IM. Words as "possitive thinking", "think possitive, be creative and make the big cash" or smth like that attract people searching for way to easy money.

That brings competition, It's something natural in business and it's right! Because as humans we have to help each other. But when someone steal your content, even the whole idea you belived it will bring you safe live (online and offline), you just TURN OFF , you get worried that everuthing you believed in, everything you paid attention is just MIRAGE - just someone "behind the corner" is not interested in your intellectual rights and is ready to meke the ground behind you more UNSTABLE.

Today web is full with articles and "HOT SECRET METHODS" or "HOW ANYONE CAN BE A MILLIONAIRE WITH MY PAID ADVICES". Big red headlines, underlined keywords.. The only way to make the customer who can not see you who cannot experience your product BUY. Basically almost every online marketer comes with those words today with big red letters UNDERLINED, to convince the real customer who need real solution in his life, to cheat him in most cases and to make some $ with a system which iif the customer is lucky, will make some little value before is out of date afther month ot two, and is total waste of money.

I personally believe in good, I see here in this unique forum people who just share so free and original information and ideas with others and that makes me happy I found this place. But when you go in action, put all your effort, hope and TIME in product, someone don't play fair and you are tired. You spend some time with your thoughts and you find inner strenghts to start again. And if you are lucky you will be faster then the intruders.

Anyway I feel with tied hands right now. I don't see any BIG AND SHINY perspectives like I did before few months. I don't thing to give up IM. No, I even think I will come back more furious.

The reason I post this is not to search any compassion. I just want to know how most of you overcome this worry-pit. I prefer to listen old school classic rap from the struggle, some good book IM offtopic, go out to the beach and make walk. What gave you strenght in such cases - a book, a thought, a insight? Or is just coded in your character never to think negative?!

It was said befor that internet will become paid. Few believed. But I think It's Already totally paid. There is no free information. Every "FREE TIP" Is paid to be there in your search, may be is outdated may be there is more relevant and really free - but simple seo and good intentions are not the key today. Good service online is mirage. Just big red letters. And if you are lucky customer with carriage with dollars to buy and try , someday you may have the right product for you.


What is your opinion?

Best Regards, Frank

    I think I might be understood with this my post here, but it is my fault. The right question may be is what inspire you to keep doing marketing in bad times

      I just returned home after another yearly trip to Switzerland. All that hiking; eating cheese, Roesti, Buendnerfleisch, Salsiz, Gipfel, Aelplermacaroni, and assorted tasties; drinking Roetli, Kirsch, and good wines; having my morning Cappuccino at the Alpina; and soaking up lots of great sunshine and mountain air - all charge up my batteries for another year. Plus, the fact that the one ClickBank cheque I took with me paid for all that indulgence.

      Moral: Find something you really want to do, make it your goal to pay for it with your business, and DO IT!

      Wow the OWNER of this warriorforum banned me.

      I had 5 posts helping people such as in this thread.

      All I said was that it's wrong to scam people and the OWNER of this website became offended

      The TS and the people who read this thread can attest to it.

      You're horrible forum owner lol.
      If the other 5 posts you submitted to "help" people, where like this one, I can see why the owner might have acted as you suggest.

      I find lots of the contributions on this forum really constructive and helpful, I suspect that part of this is due to the moderation that is going on in the background.

        Hey just wanted to say thanks for your comment buslead, I got banned again for making the comment you quoted in this thread :confused:

        So I had to make another account.

        Well anyways good luck to everyone and remember to stay positive and never give up!!!

        Even the best baseball players only hit the ball 3 out of 10 times. The point is that no matter how many times you miss its what you HIT that counts!

        Cheers!

        Now I am completely lost, I haven't knowingly follwoed any scam just answered the question.

        So to get back to the thread, being new to this I have found this forum a significant help to get me going.

        The many posts that encourage, READY, FIRE, AIM, get going and learn from your mistakes, follow your passions, don't get distracted by the many different scheme's that are around especially if they all want you to pay for their wisdom.

        So find a scheme, one that doesn't charge you for their framework, follow it through. It can be very enticing to pay for a dream that suggests there is a shortcut passed the hard work, but gets expensive and in the end a discouraging deadend.

        Whilst you were persisting I have found following the threads here to be a regular encouragement, to have the determination to play it straight and stick to providing real content about what you are passionate about.

        These claims appear credible and unusually come without strings attached

          The owner can restore all 5 of my total posts and let everyone here read. The 2nd poster im pretty sure read my post too so he can probably tell you what it said.

          But I think the best way is to RESTORE all 5 of my total posts and let the people of the forum read them.

          Basically I told the TS that I understand what he's saying and in the 20s people used to sell everything in a bottle that claimed to cure everything so marketing has always been like that.

          And I told the TS what is important is to take responsibility for what you trust.

          Then I said a lot of people help for free too, not everyone is bad and to find the good people.

          Then I got banned

      What keeps us going is a total belief in our product, we know it works. We are honest and above board in our dealings with our customers, we stand behind our product. We realize slow and steady wins the race and that we need to be in it for the long haul and dont expect to get rich overnight or even next year. I think we are very realistic in our approach and people who think they are going to make a million bucks by Christmas are delusional. You have to work for what you want, even Bill Gates had to work to get where he is now.

      Our online biz is something we want to cultivate to a nice little money earner down the road, maybe finance a nice holiday at some point. I too dont care to work at a minimum wage job either and that thought keeps me focused on our online biz. If it could supplement us when he reach pension age, that'd be awesome! We have a long ways to go before we get to that point tho.

          There's a famous saying "originality is nothing but undetected plagiarism" or something like that. I think Einstein said it

          Picasso also said this famous quote:
          "Good Artists Borrow, Great Artists Steal"

          doesn't really mean steal but that "everyone learns from everyone"

            Like many people here,

            When the internet appears to be fighting my every move,
            When my computer/internet craps out and wont work,
            When it seems I couldn't find my arse with both hands,
            When I've busted my butt off in front of this screen until my brain drips out of my ears and still I'm not getting the results I want...

            What keeps me going is my family and the fact that I would rather die than go back to collecting trollies from my local Tesco carpark for minimum wage and being treated like the lowest form of social class...

              for me it is my family and of course i just enjoy this business... i get to challenge myself every day to come up with cool stuff and creative ways to help people while making money.

              over the past years i have taught many people who get downright depressed when times are bad and stress themselves out.

              here is the real "secret"

              learn marketing as a whole... instead of fly by night tips and tricks. study sales, think of how to help people, think "big picture"

              tips and tricks may make you money for a while... but a good firm knowledge of sales and marketing will make you money for a lifetime.

              be willing do do the little things that most people don't want to do and you can always make money.

    What keeps me going is that this is not just my business but my hobby. I just quit my day job to do this full time in a bad economy. I'm making less than I was when I was working as a Supervisor but I'm happier and more relaxed. I spend more time with my wife and children (I was traveling for 7 months a year).
