I learned a long time ago what it takes to be successful online... focus, take action, persevere, be patient, etc. Lots of folks, includin myself, talk about those thangs a lot. They is critical to yore success online BUT there is somethin that no one else talks about that is also critical to yore success... IN LIFE!
Let me give you folks some very old words of wisdom that I have modified a bit to make my dadgum point...
To every thang there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be focus and a time to let yore mind wander.
A time to take action and a time to relax
A time to persevere and a time to give up
A time to reap and a time to sow
A time to get and a time to give
A time to keep silence and a time to speak
All the time you should treat folks like a friend
All the time you should show kindness and thoughtfulness
All the time you should treat folks like you want to be treated.
Let me ask you somethin... do you want to buy information that you need and find out it is from spun articles and not worth the paper it is writ on? Do you try create products that will make you lots of money or do you create products that will help people solve their dadgum problems? Do you run a business what is all about you or a business what is all about helping others? Are you a flash-in-the-pan or are you a sustained force?
I know lots of you folks will answer "both" but it shore is difficult to have two bosses. I have learnt over the years that if I put my focus on helping other people that money shore ain't a problem. This ain't about no dadburn Secret, Karma or supernatural event. What it IS about is just plain common sense and respect.
A lot of folks flat out fail online because they have got the wrong perspective. They are focused on the wrong thing. It's all about the dadgum money and a lot of folks are just plain desperate to get it no matter what they have to do. Sad part is... they DON'T get it!
A long time ago there was a fellar here on the WF that needed to borrow $20 and he was lookin for work. I gave him that there $20 with no questions asked. That fellar is a very good friend to this day and that is mighty cheap money to attain a good friend like that. You see, it's all about helpin other folks and puttin them first.
I guess you could be summin up all that I have said in one small word... ethics! Some folks have them and some folks don't but ANYBODY can get them. All it takes is makin a personal decision to do what is right!
Now I know that there ain't no folks what put me in this here forum to preach at you. I know what I been sayin sounds down right corny. I know some of you folks will read this and wonder why ole Thad just don't mind his business. Well, I want to make you a promise.
If you go meditate on those "time to..." and put them in practice, you will see a HUGE increase in yore success; not JUST in internet marketin but also in LIFE!
