1 Stern Warning About Persistence

24 replies
Greetings from the desert in Oman

Successes sometimes advise being persistent as a chief role in their online or offline success. Struggling bloggers nod, but wonder why, after persistently doing the right things for 5 or 10 years, why they still fail horribly.

Here's why: persistently doing the right things backed with a fear-based, scarcity, poverty conscious energy guarantees your failure, because even if you worked for 45,000 years...you cannot outfox your energy.

If you persist with a fear-filled energy, focused on loss, fearing you are wasting your time, trying to do everything by yourself, trusting no one, you will fail. Whether you work 1 day, or 15 years, your energy mirrors back to you. Time is a slave to energy. Everything is. Took me so many years to learn this concept, and a bit longer to put it into action.

Being persistent only matters if you vibe from a generous, loving, detached vibe. When you see these billionaires who are having fun - aka Richard Branson types - they emit that fun, loving, generous servant vibe.

Something to keep in mind guys if you have persisted for years and still seem to be struggling terribly.

    Sorry. If you're still struggling after 5 or 10 years, you haven't done anything correctly. You should have quit and found something new, long before hitting the 5 year mark. Only a total loser would even consider blogging for 5 years without return. This is a person that obviously is too lazy or stupid too do anything else with their life.

    What a sad way to waste the only life one will ever have. THAT is something to fear.

    Yes. It's all about fear.

    Remember folks, it's not about knowledge, a proven marketing plan, consistent implementation, prospecting, exploiting a proven market, creating a sales funnel, maximizing customer value, or knowing how to sell.

    It's about fear...because your prospects can smell fear through their screen.

    OK, I'm joking.



    I have to admit that fear plays a part. If you are afraid, you won't do anything.

    But once you have overcome that initial inertia, once you have done something...anything...that means that it's going to get easier.

    And now you need to learn what works and what doesn't.

    Added later;

    We are talking about internet marketing, aren't we? You know...the single method of marketing where personal contact isn't needed (OK, I forgot mail order).

    How the heck can you be afraid of attempting anything online. They will never call you.

    Jesus, if you're crippled by fear when it comes to internet marketing...the least stressful thing you can do..., maybe being unsupervised isn't in your future.

    Yeah persistence is only one part of the equation. (However one of the most important parts IMO).

      truth.. if you are persistent in doing more of what work and quickly stopping doing those things that don't work ...then at some point most of what you are doing may be working..then you have to stop doing things that work ..but don't bring the best results and do more of what works better ..

      that usually is where fear comes into play ..

      Now It is not a fear based thing.. but i can see why i could blog for the next 5-10 years and probably not make any money with it ..

        True. Good point Odahh. "Persistence" like you said, can mean finding out what works (and what doesn't) and then continuing with what does work.

          the problem that humans tend to have is they focus on what isn't work in reality.. they they feel should be working..and draw resources away from what is working..or stop doing what is working to try to fix stuff that isn't working that they can stop doing.. but the more investment someone put into a thing..the harder it is to walk away..so they get into a type of persistance that lock them into a pattern of failure ..

            Yeah sometimes that's true as well. I suppose the first step to correcting it is to be aware of it.

              the awareness is where fear comes in.. as Ryan pointed it is common for people to assemble a list of right things to do .. and then going about doing those .. with no system in place to judge if those things actually produce the results that will get them what they want..

              so they persistently do the right things or what seem to be the right things .. or things that others said are the right things.. and never test or refine ..or double and triple check if thing are actually working..

              many times they are not actually doing the right things that where originally explained ..but sound bite versions parroted from believer to believer

            Lol. Sometimes you create the opportunity to learn as a result of being persistent. No?

              Nice attempt at twisting things. It's more honorable to stand by your original statement, unless you just want to say that you didn't really think it through and it wasn't the most elegant response you could have shared.

              I won't hold my breath. lol

          that you can use one word .. and expect everyone has the same view of said word as positive ..and has the same meaning ..

    Successes sometimes advise being persistent as a chief role in their online or offline success. Struggling bloggers nod, but wonder why, after persistently doing the right things for 5 or 10 years, why they still fail horribly.

    Here's why: persistently doing the right things backed with a fear-based, scarcity, poverty conscious energy guarantees your failure, because even if you worked for 45,000 years...you cannot outfox your energy.

    If you persist with a fear-filled energy, focused on loss, fearing you are wasting your time, trying to do everything by yourself, trusting no one, you will fail. Whether you work 1 day, or 15 years, your energy mirrors back to you. Time is a slave to energy. Everything is. Took me so many years to learn this concept, and a bit longer to put it into action.

    Being persistent only matters if you vibe from a generous, loving, detached vibe. When you see these billionaires who are having fun - aka Richard Branson types - they emit that fun, loving, generous servant vibe.

    Something to keep in mind guys if you have persisted for years and still seem to be struggling terribly.
    if you can blog for 5 years or longer on a regular basis or even daily..and make no money ..that is not really a failure .. if someone is enjoying what they are blogging about..there are times taking money turns it into a job..

    sometimes passions should just stay passions with no need for money to come to justify the pursuit of passion ..

    i can cook every day for the rest of my life and try new recipes and get much better at cooking .. cooking a wider verity of meals and a better quality.. never open a restaurant or write a cookbook.. or do anything to do with cooking that leads to making money ..

    and there is no fear.. or bad energy .. or any of that negative stuff .. I basically like cooking things a little different every time a make them and it is an easy way for me to better enjoy my life ..

    if someone can blog and post content they creat to social media platforms and not need to make money from it.. and do it for years .. without making money from it.. that is no a sign of lack of success .. that a sign of breaking free from the programming that start when you are 5 or sicx years old to start having to make money from everything you do and limiting your creative channels to things that will make money

    here is an energetic coup.. that proves you really practice and live abundantly ..the more you can do that you really want to do..and have money be a non factor in weather you can do it or can't do it ..

    money is a form of energy that give you many options ..

    adding this later ..

    are you persistent in using your energy to work hard as long as is needed to produce better results.. or are you using your energy to struggle as hard as you can as long as you can ..to prove your worthiness ..
