I decided to create this thread just to start a bit of a debate about the so called "Success"...
I have some reasons that pushed me to check for your opinions, because I think this word is being used very wrongly in this business... and in my honest opinion I don't think that shouting out loud your supposed success online is gonna work to grow a real business, and attract possible customers.
I will be totally honest to you and say that I started my business online on past December, less than 5 months ago. I am following a membership program that taught me all the basics that I should know to save as many time as possible, and start earning with affiliate marketing.
Am I earning some money yet? Yes I am, just enough to cover my online expenses for now.. but slowly growing.
Should I call myself a successful person at this stage? absolutely not.
Am I in the path to be more successful? I think so, at least in my mind I have all the motivation to place in this work as much time as needed to create a substantial and real business that someday will allow me to dedicate my time entirely to this. My dream is just to be self-employed and Internet showed me that I can achieve that here.
But I am total aware that I am far away yet to achieve success, or whatever you wish to call it. I think the most important thing here is to be honest, I see everyday (when I do some research and watch my "competition") that many people are shouting their success, and to be honest I am not so sure if they are really doing that great.
I even respect much more persons like Chris Farrell or Kim Roach, that show their true face, and share true value through their work. Of course they are very well known in this online world by now, but I don't think they achieved all that since the beginning selling lies.
I don't know what do you think about this, maybe I am too new in this business yet to see things more clearly, but since I started I kept seeing all this stuff I personally I don't like it.
And please don't be offended if you felt touched by the content of this post, It's not my intention to make enemies at all! I just wanted to read your thoughts about this. Am I being too much critical?
