Hi everyone! Is there a small chance that today something made you question what you’re doing – to the point that a small voice inside your head was trying to talk you into quitting?
Here are 9 reasons why you should stick to your guns.
1. The money’s not a myth.
Internet marketing works. It’s not a smoke and mirrors game. You don’t have to scam people to make a profit. You just have to learn the right way to do things and then act on it. I’m living proof.
Sure, you may have been suckered before. Welcome to the real world – we all have been. Doesn’t mean you have to stay a victim forever. If you’re starting to be one of those people who emails me saying “everyone lies” and “nothing works,” then take your tinfoil hat off and toss out the conspiracy theories, please.
2. Everyone struggled.
You’re not special (well not in that way). Every expert, every six or seven figure marketer – we’ve all had setbacks, suffered doubt, and questioned what we were doing. Tough it out.
Going through the bad times really does help you get better at what you do and become a bigger success story. I love looking back at the struggles I went through to get to where I am now. Do I wish I could have avoided them? Sure, I’m not stupid – but it’s not realistic.
3. You’ll feel bad about yourself if you quit.
You know that the day you make the permanent decision to quit, you’re going to wonder “what if?” You’re going to regret quitting because you never truly gave it your all and saw what you were capable of.
If at any time you sincerely truly feel like you have gone balls to the walls 110% all out, then email me and tell me every single thing you’ve ever done – complete with links and proof – and I guarantee I’ll find cracks in your claims that you’ve given it your all.
Maybe you’ve tried 15 business models. Well guess what? The 16th one might be where you succeed.
4. You’ll ruin your credibility.
You are supposed to be branding your name and business on the ‘net for whatever niche you’re in. Quitting sure doesn’t look for you.
Is that what you want to be known for? I’m sure not. Want your friends and family to hear you say you quit? Even if they scoffed at the idea of making money online, don’t reaffirm their doubts by caving in before the fat lady has sung. (I’m not even warming up yet, so get back to work!)
5. It emphasizes your quitter mindset in other areas of your life.
A quitter doesn’t just quit on their business. They quit because it’s the easy way out. And they quit on relationships, on health challenges – on everything.
Don’t be that kind of person. I change course all the time – like going to the gym – wasn’t a good fit for me – but I didn’t quit. I went back to my Kinect, which I enjoy. My relationship? I don’t quit. Not in the darkest of hours. My health? I tackle it head on if there’s ever a problem.
6. You won’t get good at taking chances.
Look at this image below:
The other day I talked about how having an exit strategy means you’ll never give it your all. You’re making a choice to succeed or not.
If you are willing to believe in yourself and take a chance, wholeheartedly, then I know great things will happen for you.
The change that you want will come to fruition. But teetering on the brink of being a quitter is like running a race while dragging your leg behind you with a ball and chain attached to it. You’re not going to cross the finish line that way.
7. Any day could be the breakthrough for you.
I can’t tell you how many people (you might be one of them reading this) have come to me saying they’ve been struggling for years and suddenly something one day clicks for them.
Just like that. Tomorrow could be your click day. Might be right this second. Could be 6 months from now. But there will be a day when it all comes together.
8. You know you’ll come back and then have to start over.
So many people email me saying, “I tried Internet Marketing back in 2009 but I quit when I got frustrated about 9 months later. But now I wanted to try it again.”
WHY do that to yourself? You don’t want to have to go back to the starting line. Just follow through on this now. Finish what you started.
You already know enough that it whet your appetite for it. You know if you quit and go get a regular job, you’re going to be seeing niches everywhere you look. Your co-worker will complain of back pain and you’ll instantly be thinking, “Hmm – the back pain niche.”
It’s already infected you. Just let it take over and consume you and learn how wield that mindset for success.
9. I believe in you.
I don’t lie to you. You know this if you’ve been with me any length of time. I’m telling you that every single one of you CAN do this. You just have to do it right – and by right, I don’t mean perfect.
Right means implementing products start to finish. It means digging for answers like you’re a bona fide gopher. It means switching gears if something’s not right for you – without a big pity party, just as a plain business decision. It means not being afraid to brand yourself, toot your own horn, and reach out for help when you get stuck.
I. Believe. In you…
