It can be summed up in 3 words:

Be a Giver

Many People that venture into Internet Marketing/etc.
are all about how much money they can make. While
I don't see anything wrong with that necessarily
(I want to make a fortune too) you will be significantly
closer to reaching your goal(s) if you adopt a
"Giving" mindset.

Not only that, if you follow this advice you will
experience something more satisfying/fulfilling knowing
that you're really helping People in Life.

Be bold. Be persistent. And give tremendous value.

    I would simply add to give people what they want, sometimes what they need is not what they want, and you can try to give someone something they need all day, and if they don't want it then.....

    You can stay here and give advice but in reality the only way to success is:

    Like Johnny Wu says.
    DO be a DOER.

    Don't be a a DON'Ter


    It's like you give a poor man a fire. Sure. The poor man will be happy for one day. But he will be stuck in the ghetto the rest of his life and the fire will soon extinguish. Furthermore, ghetto neighborhoods have shoddy construction so it's a serious fire hazard.

    So not only you gave the man false hope, chances are you also burned down his neighborhood as well.

    This is something I've been learning my past few months online. Giving is the greatest way to build your online business. When you get into the giving mindset, there isn't anything that you can't have in your business.

    You see we are selfish people by nature. It's hard to think about the other person, but in real life, this is the way you make money and build a successful business. You get more when you give more.

    When I tell this to people, they look at me like I'm speaking another language. They have questions like "won't other people take advantage of me?" the truth is they can't when you operate from a truly giving mindset.

    A good book to read about this type of mentality is the Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann

      (Lol) Thanks socialentry. In fact the optimal
      proposition is to be a "Giver" and a
      "Doer." Thanks for posting.

    Chow as a motivational speaker "But did you die "

    oh the hangover referance sorry ..haha

    there are ether givers or takers on this planet right now

    the givers and creators are rapidly gaining control over their value .. and reducing what the takers can take from them ...

    what you chose to five is up to you .. but through history those who produce the most have had the takes take from them.. and distribute to less powerful people who are takers.. and call the producers the bad people .

    right now take insurance.. as a healthy person you pay more for insurance so sick people can get treatment ..in colleges there are student who borrow money and pay full tuition so less fortunate people can get the same education for lower tuition cost .. and they still have to borrow money as well..

    this system is crumbling at this moment ..If you do not become a giver/creative or a producer.. you might end up in a matrix like situation in 15 years living you life in a virtual computer world living on a very small amount of money the government gives you each month to live on

    i was watch something on you tube the other day about a company that has almost fully automated the process of making pizza for delivery that taste much better than the main pizza chains .

    so much is changing so fast

  • Well, as Dale Carnegie says ...

    "You can make more friends in one month by being genuinely interested in people than you can make in one year by trying to get people to be interested in you".

    This is true in most regards, including building value for your target market.

    Personally, I think that the biggest obstacle to success is not a lack of effort or a lack of education. It is narcissism, the vanity should treat us in a certain way while we give nothing back in return. But as every successful person knows, in this world, you serve others and you let others serve you.

      there is another quote i heard have no idea who said it ..but it goes most people egos would be hurt .. when they realize that all the effort they put into what others think about them ..is wasted.. because the only time others think of you is wondering what you are thinking of them or what you can do for them.

      people are selfish

      if you want other people to be interested in you..you kind of have to be or do someing interesting

    Great advice.

    I made that shift lately from taking to giving. in a new business, I focus a lot more on giving value, I see it inspires a lot of people. Hopefully it would also pay off for me in the end. But probably that shouldn't be my focus.

    It's confusing sometimes how to find that balance between giving, and when it's the right time to take or create direct call to actions.

    Giving value to the market place or to people in general is what brings success to you.
    In order for you to receive more, you must give more.

    If you want to make more money you must be a person who provide more value and the market place will reward you.

    It is very good to make more money but it feels good if you know that you provide more value to the people.
    Success it a results of values that you provide(nothing else)

    I you want to more successful you have to be a person who gives more , help more.

    Very true and it has only been labeled at a secret throughout time because so many people don't get something so simple. We want a secret to success to be something revolutionary and difficult so that we can rationalize why we will never be successful and why others are.

    Giving has power when it's done with a true, loving heart without the thought of any reward.
