Why Do People Quit?

I don’t get it. I don’t understand the thought process that a person gets to where they decide, “Hey, my next course of action should be to give up…that’s what the REALLY successful people do!”

How in the hell do you give up on your dream? I’m not sure, but after hearing some folks today talk about how hard it was, I just had to make a quick video to rant a bit…so I hope you enjoy and I hope this makes you think just a little bit!

Will Smith on Work Ethic


“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work.” – Kevin Durant

I’m really irritated. A lot of folks out there really believe that success comes to those that are “lucky” or that are “gifted,” and while developed talent will help you go a long way, it is the work ethic that delivers success.

While success doesn’t care what color you are, what gender you are or what religious belief you have, success does discriminate, it discriminates against those that are not willing to put forth the effort, that are not willing to work towards their dreams and goals.

The following is not a new video and I usually don’t post videos on this site, but this one had to be put out there because it is so true.

secret to 90 days

Become an Online Success in 90 Days!

What’s the Deal With 90 Days?

I don’t know what the deal is, but it seems like almost anything can be cured or fixed or built in 90 days. Take the P90X exercise program. The results that are touted are after working out with this particular system for 90 days and to be honest, for most people, 90 days is probably enough and more importantly it does work, you can see the results.

Write a New Post for 90 Days

So what about making money online? What 90 day program do we talk about here? I say it all of the time to my own prospects and students. My mantra is, start a blog and write every single day for 90 days. Promote your blog posts with articles, do this for 90 days and see what happens and just so you know, this isn’t a new or original idea on my part either.

I’ve been following David Wood, co-founder of the empower network, for a while now. I went through the boot camp that he developed when he was working his MLSP (My Lead System Pro) program and what I learned was how much you could change, how the foundation of your success could be determined in a 90 day period, but why is this so? Well, David doesn’t really say it, nor does anyone else, but I do have my own personal theory.

90% Don’t Make 90 Days

First, most people, and I mean around 90% to 95% of the folks out there that are interested in starting a business online, will not create a new blog post every day for 90 days, so for those of us that will do that it means that our competition is not as tough as what we may initially presume.

Now admittedly I can’t prove any of this and it is conjecture on my part, but when you start looking at different key phrases and keywords surrounding specific topics like network marketing or making money online, the few people that have a blog or a site with 90+ days  of work on them appear at the top of the search engine results page.

Another thing to consider is how often I am called by folks that have been utilizing a particular form of marketing for a couple weeks that call to tell me what they are doing isn’t really working. I know that you can have your ups and downs with this business, believe me, I had many, many downs before I started getting some “ups” to go along with them. The deal is don’t stop, don’t quit. It doesn’t matter how you are marketing your program just as long as you are marketing.

A Magic Formula?

I don’t know exactly what the magic formula is about the 90 day routine, but there definitely seems to be something to go with this. Perhaps it is about the time that the compounding effects of your consistent effort start to take over. I mean after 90 days you have quite a few articles out there with quite a few links to your site and if you have done your research right you should have 90 different key phrases that you are going to be ranking fairly well for.

My 90 Day Formula for Blogging Success

With all of that said, I must confess that I think that a person serious about making a go with their money making program needs to start a blog. I’ve even devised a little formula that anyone can use to see positive results in, you guessed it, 90 days. The formula goes like this:

Day 1 – Get your domain name and set up your blog

Day 2 – Do the keyword and key phrase research and find as many different phrases as you possibly can to write about. Look at other blogs within your topic and try to gain some ideas here as well.

Day 3 – 90 Write (this is where the problems usually arise)

If you do nothing else but write for those 90 days, write article after article after article, sooner or later you are going to get noticed by the search engines…usually around day 40 or 50 by the way.

secret of 90 days

Don’t Stop Till You Hit 90 and Then Don’t Quit

The key is to never stop. I don’t know why 90 days is a magical number, but it seems to be magical in the sense that you, or anyone, will see significant results within that time frame, but you must be consistent with your efforts whether it be marketing online or sculpting a winning body.

What is Your Definite Purpose?

Definite PurposeA Definite Purpose: The Foundation of Your Success

What is your Definite Purpose? Most people know that I am a big fan of the book Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill. This book is a road map for success and has been utilized by many successful people whether it was success in business, success with relationships or some other vital part of your life.

It All Starts with a Definite Purpose

One of the ideas, the founding idea, of the book has to do with having desire and a “Definiteness of Purpose,” knowing where it is that you want to go and knowing what you were put on this earth to do. Without this definiteness of purpose or definite purpose you are, more or less, floating around aimlessly. You may find success here and there, but for the most part you don’t have an overall goal to arrive at or to even head towards in the first place.

Find Your Definite Purpose

What is it that you want? If you don’t know where you are going, who will? You must first establish what it is you want out of life; write it down, don’t write goals out right now, write down what it is that you want. Is it money? A new home? Do you want to travel? It’s not my dream, it’s your dream, it’s what you desire.

Once you establish what you definite purpose is and you start the process of working towards your definite purpose you will be amazed by how fast the universe will make sure that you not only get on the right path to achieve your destiny, but to make sure it happens in a timely manner. Understand that most obstacles that you face in this life aren’t a result of someone else or circumstance or anything else of that nature. It isn’t the external forces that you must battle it is the internal battle that you must quieten, the battle within yourself, within your own mindset that you must control.

Realizing Your Definite Purpose

There is a way to achieve these goals that you want, there is a way to achieve all that you desire (once you figure that out, of course). Once again, Mr. Hill to the rescue! According to Napoleon Hill, and many, many others, you need to practice the fine art of “auto-suggestion.” What in the world is “auto-suggestion” you might ask? I’ll give you an example to follow.

Once you figured out what you want, what your definite purpose or desire is, write it down. Write it down the way you would a goal, maybe on an index card that you can carry with you. Put a date of “completion” on it. The read that card one hundred times in the morning and at night before you go to sleep. As you recite that passage in your mind picture it. What will it look like, what will your lifestyle be like? Your imagination is where all of the magic is going to happen.

Do What Others Won’t Do, Follow Your Definite Purpose

Think this is stupid? That’s fine, you go on about your life and just laugh at the rest of us, bdefinite purposeut remember that those that want something different or unique out of life are going to do different and unique things. We are going to follow the advice of those that have walked before us, those that have succeeded and follow their advice and example.

Have you figured it out yet? Have you figured out what your desire is? Life is a choice and even when you walk away from making the decision the irony is that you made it by default. Do not live a lifetime of defaults, make a commitment to your life, to your lifestyle and to your definite purpose.

ExperienceOne of the problems with experience is that is takes so long to get it!

People are always looking for quick and easy or effortless and the reality is that anything that is worthwhile doesn’t normally come quick and/or easy and it sure as hell doesn’t come without some kind of effort.

Experience Changes Perspective

Learning to market online is not always that simple, but it is rarely super difficult either. Probably one of the hardest things to do is shift your focus or perspective from a job to a business venture. You also have to shift your perception of you. Coming online and joining a money making program and then marketing can be done quickly through classified posting, forum posting and what not. For the more advanced areas of marketing such as blogging, article marketing and video marketing you are going to have to gain some of that experience to find success.

Start Slowly and Build On Your Foundation of Knowledge

So what do I recommend for the rookie marketer? First, start posting links for your opportunity. Make a list of at least 10 different places to post. I always say 3 times a day to craigslist, 5 times a day for backpage.com and 2-5 times a day for forums. Do this EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Second, go ahead and start a blog. You can do this for free, but I highly recommend that you buy a unique domain name from namecheap.com (or whatever your preferred provider is) and set up a WordPress blog. You can follow the step by step training that I provide to see exactly how to do this.

Tap Into the Knowledge of Mentors and Colleagues

Create content for your blog. Put something on that blog EVERY SINGLE DAY (you may see this message once or twice)! If you don’t know how to write a complete article, go to an already successful bloggers blog in the niche you are looking to work within and copy the article to re-post it on your site, but write a short 2 or 3 sentence paragraph about where you found this blog post and then another at the end about what you thought of the post. Make sure you give credit to the author!

You can also simply go to blogs, find interesting and unique blog posts that are about a topic or niche you are interested in, and get some ideas from these folks about what to write. This is not hard, don’t make it hard.

After time you will start to get…here it comes…EXPERIENCE with the techniques and methods that will enable you to start generating traffic to your website or program which translates into income.

Rise More Times Than You Fall

The main thing here is not to quit. Too many times far too many people stop right in front of the finish line. If you simply continue and pursue your dreams and goals, never stop learning and, most importantly, put forth the effort required you will succeed. You can’t help it, but it does require that you become effective in your efforts and that comes as a result of your experience!
