Dear Future Leaders,
In my last open letter I talked about how we should start honoring and respecting ourselves and start treating the "market" with respect by putting out real, result oriented WSOs or whatever it is you putting out to the world. We also touched on how we Warriors, those who are buyers can keep content creators in their place making sure only the good stuff comes out.
Today, allow me to touch on this from another point of view.
Over the weekend I was reading a book that told a story of a great sage in Jewish history. This man was called The Chafetz Chaim, translated as "The Seeker of Life". He was named such after his book where he talks about the prohibition of gossiping about others and how we can use our verbal communication for the better. This is indeed someone who seeks life, someone who is careful with his words not to destroy others with gossip and such but rather enhance their lives.
(Yes, I am an Orthodox Jew and no, this is not a preaching, just follow along ).
It was said about him, that when he felt "weak" in his spiritual life, he would open up the Torah (The Bible) and read the very first chapter about the Creation of The World.
He explained, that by going back to the basics, that G-d created the world and that H- is indeed in charge, he would be able to revive his spiritual side to where it was and stronger.
This got me thinking. So often in life we look for the "advance methods" of getting ahead. We look elsewhere for our answers and yet it is right there, in front of us, at the base of ALL of this.
When we talk about eating healthy, we talk about food that is closer to their source (as oppose to process food and such). When we talk about really working out, it is amazing what one can do with their own body as the resistance.
OF COURSE, all the new technology, and multi-vitamins and all that are great. OF COURSE. They helped us SO much to get ahead. Yes, all this is true.
And yet, there it is, the base, the basic, the foundation of it all.
We tend to buy WSOs after WSOs to find the MOST advance techniques, the one that will make us money backward, the one that will take care of all our needs.
And yet, SO many beginners, so many of us, miss the boat. We miss the main part of this internet marketing business. And that is, to start at the beginning.
To open up the "bible" of internet marketing and start there. Yes, it may include some article marketing. Yes, it may include some SEO (with all the changes). Some paid traffic. Yes, it may include a little bit of extra work.
But it is the beginning.
It includes creating your own product. It includes having your own raving fans. Building your own priceless answer to their problems.
When we feel tired, when we feel weak, when we feel this IM thing may not work, I ask of you to go back to the basic. Go open up the early days and see what was working then is still working today (the concept part of it at least).
Revive your belief and see the result.
This is what I am doing. I have stopped buying WSOs for a while now. No more will I be looking at the next best thing. I know what to work on. I know where it is at. I know that in the beginning is where I will see the most profits.
From there, I can do other things but let us all start at the beginning.
And here the thing and I know many of us can agree on this. We KNOW a lot of methods. We can even write a book about all these methods. We know how to do it all. We even know we want to. But until this becomes a MUST, until this becomes what we HAVE to do, until this becomes our life joy and passion, we won't get far.
So go ahead, go back to the basic..and let yourself write the following words in your life...
In the beginning...
