Are You Struggling Online? Here's A Little Tip!

13 replies
I decided to write this because of an old post I found while doing a warrior Forum Google search. It's not much but I think it will help someone that's really dedicated to becoming successful.

Whatever you decide to do, please remember to use your own judgment. Perform your own tests, don't take anything for fact just because a ton of others claim it's true. Most people are followers that read and attempt to teach without any test or evidence of their own.

Some of my biggest time waster's were things that the mass majority claimed to be the holly grail.

Some of my biggest success's were things that the mass majority claimed to be total time waster's.

I hope you can see at least a glimpse of the picture that I'm trying to reveal.

In my many years of studying online, I have found that my most successful avenues are the one's that are rarely talked about or only half of the story is being discussed.

It can be a rough business from the start no matter what route you decide to take but my past failures are totally and directly responsible for my present success.

    It can be a fine line between doing your own thing and following the crowd. Each one has its pros and cons, and neither one is always good or bad.

    Sometimes the crowd is right, such as their advice to keep track of income and expenses.

    Sometimes the crowd is wrong, such as jumping on the "next big thing". (Can you say "Pinterest"?)

    All the best,
    Michael

    There are great mentors out there ...and you can learn a lot from other peoples experience and after all, none of us is born in a vacuum, everything we know and learn is essentially external. But to make knowledge your own, you have to put effort into understanding it.... and in business terms, that means testing. Testing a business concept, is everything. Don't just run with something just at somebody else's say so.

    I am bad to do my own thing but .. when certain people talk .. I listen. I was ready to launch a new system just last week .. sent my ideas to a few trusted warriors and ... launch is now scheduled for next week.

    These people are trusted to the point of me changing one entire part of my funnel ... why do I trust them so? One makes well over $100,000 a month .. one has a list of over 200,000 ... another just amazes me to no end .. they charge me nothing for the advice ... The relationship is easily the most important part in IM.

    That's the greatest advice any new person can ever get. It is commont to see people purporting to teach others how to be millionaires when there is no evidence that these people are worth even $10,000. The gullible public looking for the secret of striking it rich often follow this misinformation.

    When it comes to IM, I often see people claiming to make five figures a month together with screenshots of earning statements. I rarely see people display their IRS returns. I guess the would be the more valid evidence.

    I agree. As an online marketer and entrepreneur, you really have to follow your own gut. Trust your own instincts. Don't always listen to what other people say. This is what differentiates a leader from a follower.

      Some great advice here. I was lucky to find a great mentor that helped me along my path, but I also followed my gut and tested, tested, tested. It is the best thing that you could possibly do.

    Good stuff, thanks for sharing.
    One of my biggest time wasters is spending too much time reading instead of writing content or working on my sites.

    testing,testing ,testing is always good, but how much can you afford to Test?

    I am a Passionate about building unique websites since last 3-4 years, but i must say, its very hard to make website successful, even though you might think that it will be a big success.

    I am still building unique web apps, but waiting for my EUREKA moment, havent acheived it yet.

    Key is to never give up,but depends on whether how long you can afford to keep going and experimenting
