I don't believe that gets people anywhere.
But many times I have people argue with me on a simple concept.
When I discuss goals with them, and how much they expect to make I tell them straight up and honestly: 'If you want to make full time income, it takes full time effort. To run a business, you have to still go to work to earn a paycheck'
To which sometimes I hear: "Yeah, but as long as I work SMARTER I don't have to work AS HARD.''
Secretly, I roll my eyes, and offer more of an explanation.
Because if you have a goal in mind - say to earn 5000 dollars a month, and you're NOT achieving it - then the cure is always the same -it is to apply CORRECT principles MORE often.
Yes, it is to work smarter- but it is to do it more often. Not less so.
That is why if you're smart about your full time effort, you're going to be a lot further along, then the guy on the couch waiting for success to hit him.
