It seems like the more people I come across, the more I teach, the more I learn from, and especially from posts in this forum that everyone is entitled to this magical 4 hour work week.
Is it because of a myth about this industry? Because some people made it big quick, that everyone has a free pass to work for an hour a day and become a super star with a thick wallet?
Is it because that the people who already put in their work, got where they wanted to be, and ONLY NOW have the ability to lay around and still advance?
Or are people just lazy?
Am I millionaire? No, not yet. Do I work with millionaires? Oh yeah. Do you work with millionaires? Probably.
What's the point? Almost anyone I know who is truly advancing their business, truly doing what they preach, and quietly earning a massive fortune ARE NOT WORKING 4 HOUR WEEKS.
They wake up early, they go to bed late, and their black berry's and laptops never turn off. They spend more time on airplanes and on the phone, than they do with friends.
I take that back. They spend all of their time with friends, because they love what they do. Absolutely love what they do, to the point that it's a job, a passion, and a hobby.
When business is good, when they have a huge launch or a massive pay day, they don't take a vacation. They try to do it again. They don't even run out and spend the money, hell, some don't even cash it.
I was invited over for dinner for a relatively "famous" marketer, and I noticed on his kitchen counter that there was at least 8 clickbank checks, and checks that I knew were from various seperate affiliate programs.
I asked about why he hadn't deposited them, or if possibly they were just receipts for a wire transfer, and he said "no, they are checks, I've just been too busy to cash them". The same marketer still lives in a modest house, and drives a toyota, and has verified many times that he is making over $5,000,000 a year, largely profit.
Too busy to cash upwards of $100,000? Doesn't sound like a 4 hour work week to me.
I guess my point is this:
If you are beginning, really trying to make an honest shot at trying to start a business, trying to sell a product or a service, then you should get this crap out of your head (if it's there).
If you want real chops, you better be ready to put in your time, make some sacrifices and be prepared to be beaten to your knees before you can stand up and call yourself a success.
