"I've been here for a few years... I've bought a good amount of tools... I've never made any sort of decent money online yet."
I've been trying to decode that and understand what all these people have in common. I'd love to hear your guesses as well. Here's mine:
"Fourth and Inches Theory"
The people that tend not to have any success are the people that don't take action and initiate the plans they put together. They tend to get distracted by shiny objects, dive into various subjects that seem promising, but fail to not just put a plan into place, but actually EXECUTE the plan. Maybe they are afraid of failing, maybe it's just laziness, or maybe the lack the minimal funds to jumpstart a project. I don't know.
Either way (here comes the football analogy), it's like it's fourth and inches from the two yard line, heading in to score. Instead of kicking a field goal for three points, or going for the touchdown and seven points... these folks inexplicably decide to PUNT and just walk off the field after marching down it.
Naturally, I kind of felt like one of these folks and have decided this is, at least, one of my weaknesses that I am working on conquering.
Again, I'd love to hear your theories and discuss.
