Thereís no such thing as a free lunch! This is especially true in Internet Marketing and e-commerce. How many times do you receive blatant SPAM about the latest "Just sign up for FREE, weíll do the rest and youíll make millions" deal?
Do you really BELIEVE this hype?
Iím guessing (hoping) that you donít! Iím guessing (hoping) that you canít hit the delete key fast enough!
You just canít get something for nothing.
I recently read a story that said that the "Success Family has Work as the father and Integrity as the mother. If you can get along with the parents, you wonít have any trouble with the rest of the family."
What you do need to know is that you donít always have to work harder, but you do have to work smarter!
If you want to be successful in Internet Marketing, you must find someone who has already blazed the trail and been successful. Study them, learn from them, ask them questions, listen to their answers and model them.
I can guarantee you that every one of them will tell you that they didnít get a free lunch. They worked hard before they figured out how to work smart.
And, another interesting thing to note is that you wonít hear any of them offering you the latest "do nothing and get paid" program. They will each clearly lay out for you what needs to be done in order for you to be successful.
Every success story has evolved from a dream or idea, a plan and the elbow grease to get it done.
The great success stories of our time didnít sit back and let someone else do all of the work.
Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Jeff Bezos, to name a few, all worked their tails off, and still do, to some degree.
The first thing you must do is quit looking for that get-rich-quick scheme, or the program thatís going to pay you for doing nothing.
Find something that is real, legal, legitimate and offers people something of value! After all, you want something that you can be proud of associating your name with and something that will be around next week, next month and next year!
Write out a simple business plan of what you want to achieve in five years, two years and one year. Then, determine what you will do each and every day to get you there.
Finally, work like there is no tomorrow to achieve these goals.
I promise you that you will be able to look back and feel a sense of pride and success over fulfilling your goals!
So, the next time you get one of those silly emails promising you the moon on a silver platter, just hit delete and get back to your success plan!
