An Old Home Is Passing Away

11 replies
I won't mention any names, but an old program and forum where I hang out
from time to time (I still belong to the program for hosting reasons) is slowly
dying. The writing is all over the wall, and it's very sad.

At one time, this program was one of the hottest on the Internet. Today, I
would say it's hanging on by life support.

So what's my point?

Take a look around my friends. See this wonderful place? There is no
guarantee that it will be here when you wake up tomorrow. For all we know,
Allen might wake up one day and decide he's had enough. Nobody knows
the future. Not you...not me...not anybody.

So cherish this place. Cherish every single day that you get to come
here and chat with some of your friends. And let me tell you, I have made
some very good friends here. Hopefully, if the day ever comes when the
WF is no more, I can take those friends with me in the continuation of
my IM life.

It's so easy to get comfortable with things. It's so easy to believe that
those things will last forever.

And it's so hard to accept when they don't.

I try to have an optimistic outlook on life, but I have no illusions about the
reality of it as well.

In 1962 on November 10, I had a father living at home.

On November 11, I didn't.

Live today....there may not be a tomorrow.

    Every day I check the obituaries. If I don't see my name there, then I know it's going to be a good day!

      Isn't that the truth!

    At least Warrior is a general site about making money online, and not tied to a specific method or program. As long as members keep on contributing, it should continue to move forward.

    But yes, you are right, you never know what could happen. There is a lot of incredible knowledge on here, and all accessible for free.

      Matt, on June 2, 2005, Cory Rudl who helped so many people get their start in internet marketing passed away. He was a passenger in a race car at the race track experience in Fontana, CA.

    Hi Steven and to all Warriors,

    I feel that it is important to remind ourselves of
    the people around us while we are busy making
    money online.

    Many times, I wonder will I wake up tomorrow when
    I sleep tonight.

    Will I be able to see my family members tomorrow?

    Will I be able to log onto Skype and chat with my
    Warrior friends?

    Life is short and things do happen.

    Life is indeed unpredictable.


    So many times, I remind ourselves...
    whatever products or services we are creating,
    it is important to deliver value to others
    and making a difference to their lives
    while fulfilling their needs.

    Ultimately, people buy and consume products
    because they trust that the products can
    give them the value and making a difference
    to their own lives.

    So my point is:

    At any time of the year (not just during this time),
    it is important to see from the angle of how do
    we make a difference to someone's lives...

    Then our products or services will be able
    to last long.

    My 2 cents,
    John
