Wherever you are on your internet marketing journey, you must realize that you are on the right track. The internet is literally filled with tons of rags to riches stories. E.g how the owner of Empower network was sleeping in a van and then suddenly started making 6 figures.
A lot of these so called gurus who are giving you these stories are actually not telling you the 100% truth.
For example the Empower Network owner David Wood failed numerous time for 7 years until he eventually saw the success he is experiencing now. Now there is the odd exception of overnight success but this is very very rare.
You will find that the vast majority of successful internet marketers failed and learned, failed and learned, and failed some more and learned some more before they reached the success they have now.
So what am I saying?
When you begin your journey of making money online go into it with 0 expectations. Go through the process with no expectations of success.
Find someone who has the success I am looking for, and emulate what they have done.
Realize that this is a process. It is better to love the process and enjoy the journey without thinking about the money in the end. For example if your goal is to make $10,000 a month online, find someone who has earned $10,000 a month and let them teach you the process,but don't think about the end goal.
As they say, It is not about the destination, it is about the journey. The path you take to reach the kingdom.
Most of the successful internet marketers who tell you these extravagant rags to riches stories are actually telling you what you want to hear. They don't talk about the full process they went to to have what they have now.
And that is smart marketing. Not only do online marketers do this but offline marketers too "Steve Jobs" for example. They give you these stories to build their brand because it is good business for them.
They are marketing to you.
Know that you are always being marketed too. I am marketing to you, by giving away free helpful content on this forum. This is what most if not all the gurus and teachers are doing, and it is not a bad thing. It is just a way to reach out to more people to build their business and brand.
So what is the message?
The message is, have the mindset that you are not going to make a dime online. Just learn and follow the exact step by step blueprint that another person has used and replicate. Have fun! Don't make it a daily grind.
Treat your online business like a game of Super Mario Bros. In Super Mario you die again and again, but you can restart the game and try again. The only way you can fail is to turn off the console and stop playing the game. Those are the real failures.
I hope this helps a lot of newbies and other marketers who are not seeing any success yet. Realize that top 6 figure earners went through exactly what you are going through.
Just push through and never give up.
