I'm absolutely sick and tired of seeing people blow their chance at success!

I'm absolutely sick and tired of seeing people give up SO EASILY!

I've heard all the excuses "I'm not good at building websites", "I don't like dealing with people", "It's above my head", "It cost too much money", "I can't do it", etc..., etc..., etc...

IT'S PATHETIC!

LISTEN UP EVERYONE: YOUR SUCCESS IS IN YOUR OWN HANDS! YOU EITHER APPLY WHAT YOU'VE LEARNED AND BECOME SUCCESSFUL, OR YOU DON'T.

NEWBIES: STOP LOOKING FOR A "MAGIC BUTTON" THAT WILL BRING YOU INSTANT WEALTH, IT DOES NOT EXIST. IF ANYONE SAYS IT DOES, RUN AWAY - FAST!

With everything I've went through in my own life, to hear someone say it's "too hard", or "they can't do it", etc... IT'S A FREAKIN INSULT! YOU CAN DO IT FOLKS! WAKE UP!

Okay, just had to get that off my chest.

I feel a little better now.

    You know what Josh? This is just what I needed to hear... I mean read.

    As a freelance writer, I've learned a lot over the last couple of years. I've been meaning to apply what I've learned and get into IM a lot more. Yet, I haven't.

    It's about time I stop making excuses and just do it.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Josh,

    One thing I've learned is that even though I "see" exactly what you are talking about and have had major success, most people do not "see" things the same way.

    So whenever I used to get frustrated and post accordingly, the result I got was the opposite of what I wanted. Instead of helping people "see" it I end up pushing people away.

    It's not anyone's fault that they don't see it. We're not conditioned to see it. In fact everything in society is working against us in our pursuit to see it.

    You and I have been given a gift in our ability to see it. But the real gift is figuring out how to meet people where they are and help them see it from their vantage point.

    That is exactly what I'm finally doing thanks to the incredible feedback I've gotten from folks here.

    You can do whatever you like. Just something to think about.

    I absolutely know I can do it, Josh. I have not one single doubt. My biggest problem is scheduling my time better and not procrastinating--problems I'm starting to deal with. I mean, seriously, I sat down some time ago and said to myself "Self, every day that you don't get your act together and start implementing all these things you learned, you are throwing away money. So don't complain when you don't have any."

    I was pretty harsh with me, but I needed it.

    Very true man!

    I hate to see emails from people that are simply making excuses not to take action and nit-picking little details that don't matter... and it is amazing to see them get out there and succeed when they get out there and just DO IT.

    We still need to get together and share some ideas/shoot the breeze.

      Josh, if it'll make you feel any better, somebody bought one of my products
      today.

      Within a few hours, they were already questioning whether it would work.

      The negative mindsets that are out there would stun the living daylights out
      of you if you knew just how bad it really was.

      I usually get people email me after 3 days, the ones who are quitters. But
      to get emailed after a few hours?

      I don't have an answer for the problem. All I know is that I have control
      over what I do, and that means not quitting, not giving up, working
      everyday and keeping a positive mindset.

      If all those around me want to quit, I can no longer get upset about it.

      I used to...big time.

      But no more.

        Steve,

        I had the same thing happen to me. I had someone buy my product and a few hours later ask for a refund because they don't think it will work.

        I gave them a refund and looked through their posts and saw that they had bought 4-5 WSO's in the last 3 days.

          And I almost guarantee that if you had the info in your hand, you'd see that they also requested a refund on those other WSOs..that's the case most of the time.

    Josh,

    Thanks for letting out the steam. It is all in your mindset. If you believe you will be rich, then you will. If you believe that IM is hard and you won't make it, then that will be your reality.

    I hope all the newbies never give up. The internet is still new and all you need is just one small piece of the pie to make it big and kiss your boss goodbye.

    Hey Josh THANKS! being nosy, what all have you been through? I'm just finishing up my story for my totally revamped cancer info site. Should be good. Though I'd much rather have Wendy back than be building this site.

      I had some heart problems...couldn't drive for 6 months, and that's how I started working for myself back in 2000.

      If all those around me want to quit, I can no longer get upset about it.

      I used to...big time.

      But no more.
      I try not to let it bother me (as you can obviously tell from my first post, LOL). I just wish people would open their eyes, and give themselves more credit for what they can actually accomplish if they just take the necessary steps.


      Josh,

      I think this has become the mindset of people today. Everyone wants the easy way out.

      People that need to lose weight will look for a pill to do it for them. They don't want to eat right and exercise.

      Those that are feeling sick will run to the doctor right away and ask for an antibiotic to cure their cold. They don't want to look at their lifestyle and make necessary changes that will build up their immune system. ( stop smoking, eat healthy, drink more water....etc.)

      We as a nation have created a bunch of lazy, whiners who are looking for a hand out and an easy way out of every situation.

      The same goes for the economy right now......thousands of people are losing their jobs and are wondering how they are going to make it.

      To me the answer is simple.....stop moaning, get off your butt and start creating your own life. Don't wait for someone else to take care of you.

      I could go on and on but you get the idea.

      People it's time to start breaking a sweat and put in some real work if you want real results!!!!

      Just my 0.02

    That's what happened to me, too.

    No mo' hair!

    I recently received a support ticket from someone that said, "I've read all your training and I'm completely lost. I have no idea what to do next. Either call and walk me through this, personally, or just cancel my account!".

    I looked at their profile. We can see when they last logged in, how long they were there, etc....

    This person had logged in to their account exactly ONE time.... to confirm their account. They had spent ZERO time in the training articles and had applied NONE of the information.

    Yet they told me they had read all of my training and were "lost".

    Sigh ......

    Good post Josh.

    I think an important thing is to believe you have what it takes.

    No one should say give up, because you could be just on the verge of success when you did.

    "MAGIC BUTTON"
    That's funny. There's a product on the Early To Rise website called the Magic Button... It spews out money at the push of a button.

    Sales letter is awesome! Although it's easy to understand why a lot of folks think zero work is required to make money, because pretty much every biz op marketing piece says so.

      Well I get what Josh is saying but the word "CONDITIONING" is a powerful word. You see, you and I Josh might be prosperous now, and it's easy to say to someone go do it.

      BUT

      To those who are conditioned and bound by lack, inadequecy and poverty.....it is difficult for their mind and brains to accept that.

      They are wired neurologically to fail. And it is not easy to get rid of those "neural pathways" easily without additional help.

      Their subconcious mind has ingrained failure and no success. So for you to say you can do it......fear will immediately captivate them. And those emotions of fear will do whatever they can to pull the person in question to fail. They are bound by chains of poverty, lack, etc and it is difficult to shake them off easily.

      That's why people like that, will continue to doubt and buy many programs with the little money they have and end up more broke.

      So, don't give up on them. Don't be angry with them. They are like sheep without a true shepherd.

      A true shepherd is different from a hired shepherd. A hired shepherd runs away from the sheep if they are being attacked by dangerous animals like Lions.

      What's my point. We should not be tired to help these people or run away from them

      They just need to be "CONDITIONED" the right way and they too will be prosperous. After that, we can tell them, they can do it, and they will believe.......THEY CAN!

    I have made good money online. More than a lot of my friends working regular jobs. They all say they want to make more, they wish they could do what I do.

    I thought about how to help them, but the reality is you can't help people. Unless you are running direct one-to-one or small group training sessions where you literally get them to DO it ... you can't help them.

    What I've done instead is created a blog where I create a posting of things that catch my eye, things I think are good or look good. I write about those things, in blog categories. Everyting I'd suggest people look into is all there. Stuff fore new people and stuff for more experienced people. And they know it's all there.

    My friends can go any time they want and pick out stuff and they know I'd spend time working with them online one to one for free (don't PM me please, I am talking about my real life mates here!) ... but have they? No. Have any of them even started anything at all? No.

    Making money online is like giving up smoking or losing weight: you have to really WANT it and it might take several attempts. But above all: IT IS HARD WORK.

    But if it were easy, there'd be no money in it, right!
