In fact my whole IM business colapsed with no sale and of top of that my membersites got hacked.

I have posted my full failure story on my blog, if you want to read about "HOW NOT to do it "

    Failure is part of the learning process. As your popularity grows,getting hacked is quite normal. You will learn what things to do to prevent getting hacked again in the same manner. Of course you must investigate every failure you encounter else you won't grow your knowledge and progress forward.

    Take care,

    Everybody experiences set backs within business, it's just part and parcel of the game. It's those who can come back after a large set back and pick themselves back up and get back to work that end up succeeding over time.

    You will always encounter problems, things that you just can't see and could not have planned for but true entrepreneurs never give up. If you want something in life you're going to have to fight hard for it, but winning the up hill battle is the best feeling in the world and you should use that feeling as motivation to keep driving you forwards even if fear is trying to drive you backwards.

    Never give up just because you got disheartened by something, it’s how most people fail. In fact you can’t fail in IM, you can only give up which is what I see to many people doing daily. If IM isn’t for you then fair enough, but if it’s everything you ever wanted then don’t let a bad spell destroy your dreams.

    Hey T!

    Glad you're back. And love the example of the difference coaching is making. That's when huge strides and breakthrus are made. It's so easy to try to go it alone. But having a mentor shortcuts success and helps us avoid costly mistakes.

    Peace,

    Hi,

    Thanks for the post, it's a familiar story for a lot of people in IM. It's like any career - hard and stressful at first. Once you get your break - and you WILL get your break - you'll be fine.

    Also, as a fellow warrior said, failure is part of success. What we learn from failure can only lead to stronger success in the future.

    Good luck and welcome back!

    Hi, Lindgren. Don't give it up. I completely understand what you feel, especially about going on your normal job in order to get some money. I read your blog post and I wish you come back more powerful! I have suspended my internet job for the money too. I have been working 2 years jobs that I don't like, because I need some money. After this summer I will try to quit my other jobs and dedicate my time to online business. Keep your head up and as another member said, failures are always profitable....

    Hi

    Yes I think a lot of people trying their own online journey fail - too much information and mainly too many shiny objects... jumping from one thing to another, without trying one method properly.

    Good luck

    warm regards

    Linda - You never failed, not once, you simply trialed and errored, you were on a journey to discover the "true knowledge" and indeed it seems you have discovered some.

    If you would have walked away with nothing, no knowledge, no thoughts, then you would have failed.

    You walked away with some more knowledge and experience under your belt - and then you picked yourself up, analyses the information and jumped back onto it - you are far from a failure star: you are an INSPIRATION!

    Keep going strong,
    Much love,

    Failure is permanent only when we don't get back up
    for another fight. You're not a failure!

    I can assure you that your not the only one who have
    had to start back over.

    I know it can be deeply depressing but the sun is always
    near during every heavy fog.

    Glad you're back Tina!

    Welcome back, Tina!

    Experiencing failure happens to a lot of people, but having the determination, persistence and will power to dust yourself off and step back into the ring is what sets you apart from 95% of other people.

    Good luck with your new venture - adventure.

    Welcome Back Tina.. Failure is one step closer for your success. Just see it in a positive way, at least you can share your experience by posting on your blog and then your journey will inspire so many people. Precisely, if you are not fail you will not have a story. Do some actions is our task as humans beings, and let GOD take the rest.
    We are here for supporting you Tina. Lets conquer this world..!!

    Hey it's great to have you back.

    Giving up forever is the losers approach, when you fail you
    have to be able to look back, learn from your failures and
    re-start again.

    In every failure there is a lesson so, if you know why you
    failed it is very easy to turn that failure into a success.

    You just have to work hard to achieve what it is that you
    want. Success is a process, if you never fail then it is
    difficult to succeed.

    Thanks,
    ^PV Reymond

    Always learn from your mistakes. That's what makes us better.
    It kills me when I hear people saying "I wish I didn't do that" or "If I could take that back". All of my mistakes are what has got me to where I am today!
