I’ve been away.
Because my damn laptop has not been working correctly, the internet has not been working correctly and as most of you know, I am still working in the “trenches” like many others.
Sounds like a bunch of excuses and perhaps they are, but…as always…I’m back.
The bottom line is I will never stop…I will never quit.
Why is this so important?
Because success…just about all success…takes time.
Time for you to create posts, articles for publishing, videos, podcasts….no matter what the content, it takes time to produce and promote.
Delayed Gratification is the awful Secret
If you are like many people out there, you struggle with patience.
Unfortunately, patience is exactly what you must employ if you are ever going to see the fruits of your labor pay off.
While you can sit back in your chair and say, “Of course,” it’s much more difficult to incorporate in your daily life.
Working out today will not produce any great results, to the contrary, it will only, in the short term, produce pain.
Your muscles will be sore, you will feel exhausted after a work out…of any sort, and you just won’t see the benefits that first week.
…if you stick with it, over time you will see tremendous benefits to your physical body as well as your mental state.
This is a universal truth when it comes to succeeding at ANYTHING.
Today I may call ten people that have left a phone number for me to call and I may not get a single person to join my business team.
It may happen again tomorrow and the next day and the next, but…
…over time I will become better with my pitch, I will continue to get better at targeting my audience and I will start to see my team grow.
As it grows, there will come a time when it begins to grow larger and larger and larger.
This is not magic, but rather the natural flow of business and marketing.
I am now promoting one of the better programs I have ever seen…and guess what…it’s starting to pay off.
Because I kept pushing…kept doing the little things and I never gave up…EVEN THOUGH I WANTED TO!
Giving Up Looks Good!
Make no mistake about it, when you have called 50 or 100 people and have been rejected by ALL of them, quitting looks good.
I mean, you aren’t making any headway, right?
You are wasting your time, right?
You are laying the foundation for success.
You are building a library of videos.
You are building a large collection of articles, podcasts…whatever…and all of these things are still out there eventually catching the attention of those looking.
Most importantly, YOU are getting better, YOU are becoming just a little bit more professional with each call.
If you have done your research correctly and found your target audience then those people looking should be looking for what it is that you are offering.
And when you factor in your content creation, your highly targeted audience and your improved pitch you will be rewarded.
But it all takes time.
The number one thing that I can tell you about any type of success…no matter what the niche, no matter what the industry is this:
Never, ever, ever quit
See you at the top!
