      I completely agree with that, but being the competitive person I am. I strive to "win" in fact I have to! I wont sleep unless I have put 100% into anything I do.

      I like to think of it as not wasting money, but a lesson to be learned with many more to come. Without that first "try" how are you going to know what works for you, and what doesn't?

    Thanks for the thread.

    My biggest fear is not taking risks. Unfortunately I allowed the fear to drive everything I was doing in IM. This all stopped a couple of months ago and I started making some really good money online.

    Not taking risks really means that because I was relatively new to IM I thought I could not succeed; that everyone around me knew so much more, what chance did I have.

    And then, over night I realised that all my business experiences off line could be adapted online. I had been self employed off line for years and it was only because of illness that I was home ridden and needed to continue making an income.

    I have applied all my strategies from a booming off line business and put them to use online.

    Now I use targets, have a vision, blueprint, mind maps, forecasts. The lot. It was the perfect remedy to an online misery.

    Hope that helps

    Marcus

      See, that is the biggest problem right there. If you yourself already thinks, YOU cant succeed. Well, That right there is already putting a MindF,ck, on yourself.

      Keep positive, think to yourself, I CAN DO THIS! I see people saying, I cant this, I cant that! Both on the Online world and real. Of coruse by saying I cant do this your already on the track to fail....

      That you won't have to worry about, since directories are specifically intended to hold content for syndication.

    My biggest fear is that I will miss the chance to succeed if I do not keep looking. I have had mild success, but the thought that if I quit the online marketing business, I might just miss the "big one" that would offer me complete financial independence.

    Nice thread! I would love to share my thoughts as well. As a newbie, my biggest fear is getting lost and overwhelmed in the world of IM and not being able to find my way back. But I guess it shouldn't be much of a worry since I have LOTS of veteran warrior members to look up to and get insights from..

    Investing so much in IM, in terms of time and resources, only to earn very little.

    Expending time, energy and money on some route or another only to find out later that it's been wasted... however, worrying about such things instead of pursuing something is in itself obviously a waste of time and energy!

    My biggest concern is - spending lots of money on different things to get them to work and then - they don't work and I lose all the money *crying* but hopefully not, hopefully that investment will be worthwhile.

    My biggest fear is still being stuck in my job or heaven forbid, another one by next year.

    I've really grown to despise the cubicle farm setting and the word "corporate".

        Well, you can always promote them products that help them travel back in time, and when they succeed, remind them that the world ends in 2012, so you're right back on track.

        Hmmm, but what about telling them that year 2012 was a typo, and the year is actually 2102?

        On topic: My biggest fear is that 6 or 7 figures is too good to be true. I hope I'm wrong (and that I find out on my own skin). :p
