Reasons Why You May Still Fail in 2012 and How to Change That

23 replies
1. You still haven't found a niche
2. Your still searching for that perfect product
3. Your still waiting for that 5 click software to start working
4. You'll dedicate 8,759 hours to buying information product on how to make money and only dedicate one hour to implementing it.
5. You finally found the right niche sent 40 visitors to it and decided it was the niches fault you haven't made money.
6. You'll get a good idea for making money but be too scared to do it.
7. you refuse to step out of your comfort zone
8. Your still building the foundation of your business on sand
9. you don't have multiple streams of income
10. You want to outsource everything without putting in the initial effort your self.


the good news is that if you do the opposite of these things you will be very successful.

in 2012 for the love of god please finally choose a niche, setup a conversion funnel to build a list, attract and convert leads. Create a daily routine of action to get traffic, when you buy an info product implement it until your fingers literally bleed. If it makes you money then outsource the system to create another stream of income, bit only after it makes you money and you know exactly how to tell others how to do it for you.

If you want things in your life to change you have to change things in your life. Don't just do it until the excitement of the new years wears off do it all year everyday for the rest of your life.

    Thank you for your helpful post. Please see my questions below, and when you have a few hours could you please respond?

    What niche would you recommend? Please list the keywords.
    2. Your still searching for that perfect product
    If you could only buy one product to start off 2012 to guarantee your success what would it be?
    3. Your still waiting for that 5 click software to start working
    I'm really busy, can you suggest any software with less clicks?
    4. You'll dedicate 8,759 hours to buying information product on how to make money and only dedicate one hour to implementing it.
    But I read all the WSO's carefully. Most say it is on auto-pilot. I'm confused, please explain your point.
    5. You finally found the right niche sent 40 visitors to it and decided it was the niches fault you haven't made money.
    One you help me with #1, can you please give me step by step plan to get more visitors, thank you?
    6. You'll get a good idea for making money but be too scared to do it.
    Can I call you when I have questions, because I'm afraid I'll make a mistake?
    7. you refuse to step out of your comfort zone
    I'd prefer if you chose a niche dealing with soccer, it is the only topic I'm really familiar with.
    8. Your still building the foundation of your business on sand
    I live on a beach, I find this highly insulting.
    9. you don't have multiple streams of income
    Says who? I have 6 chickens I feed every morning, 1 pig almost ready for market...
    10. You want to outsource everything without putting in the initial effort your self.
    Do the workers from the Philippines, India, or Pakistan charge the least? Since I have almost no time I need to have someone take care of all of this.

    You seem really knowledgable...can you mentor for free?

    Ok, I think that covers all the questions.....

    Happy New Year, Nicholas...time for me to get back to working on my goals, schedule, and projects...but those questions were just begging to be asked..

      I'm not sure if you are taking a shot at Nicholas..but if you take the time to follow his posts you'll quickly discover he's a great guy who gives a lot to his fellow Warriors through his participation on the forum.

      I don't think he intends to "sell" anything through his post except a better attitude going into the new year.

        WHAT? insulting his fellow forum members is having a "better attitude"? Not sure what you are smoking barry, but it must be some good s**t

        Like I said in an earlier post, i'm a new member here, and all i've seen so far is a TON of hype, ZERO proof, and a ton of bull****ters and snake oil salesmen peddling their stupid crap. I have zero tolerance for a guy who makes a post like this and can't post proof of his success....

            Barry- Sorry for saying what so many others are thinking. There are so many "free reports" on this site, and many of them are just a poorly disguised ad for whatever software or service the poster is peddling. Then 100 people will line up to kiss posters a.zz in hopes they can 'network' and make some all important contact.

            So what i'm seeing so far is lots of hype and not much real substance. Now don't get me wrong, I think there are a lot of smart folks on this site- but it just seems like a lot of spam ebook marketing opportunities to line their own pockets under the guise of "for my fellow forum members" which seems like it should say "dear suckaz, click here".

    This thread ....

    1. Provides little to no benefit to anyone.
    2. Assumes that everyone reading it is a complete beginner, or has no idea what they're doing.
    3. Annoys me.

    Buy an information product and use it until your fingers bleed? While it's true you need to stick at it - some of the rubbish being sold on here isn't worth 5 minutes of anyone's time.

    Excellent topic!

    One of the best reasons why you still may fail is because you just freakin' do NOT "do it."

    ie, you spend all your time spinning your wheels and not enough to get out there and make things happen.

    I'm rarin' to go for 2012 - I found what works for me and this year will be simply glorious!
