Do Not Quit On YOU

Aug 18, 2007
See, here's the thing: At some point, if you want to change your life and get to where it is you want to go, you're going to have to deal with the conflict of your time on your job. Unless you get fired, which we hope doesn't happen, you still have to maintain your job you know, business as usual while concurrently building your own business so you can eventually leave your job, right?

Creating momentum

So, you're creating momentum, and you're learning to develop the skill that nobody can ever take away from you, ever, ever, ever, ever. And when you learn successful Internet marketing, you can work with any product in any market.

You're not the only one that has a conflict with their schedule. We have students with jobs and they've gone 2 or 3 days without sleeping because they still had to keep their jobs. At the same time, though, they wanted to make the effort to learn and develop their online business. They understand that this is just a short-term stretch that you have to go through to build the momentum, and then press through. And then, once you get through it, you can start to have the things that you want out of life.

But the reality is - regardless of which way you try to go, you're going to still have to contend with your job. Your job is not going to go away by itself, unless you get fired, and again, we don't want to see that to happen.

Living your dream

So if you have this dream and idea that you want to build something, listen to me, I am somebody who was in a much worse position than you are. I know what it feels like to have to stretch yourself. I know what it feels like to have to go up against the odds. I know what it feels like to not have food, not to have a roof over my head. You have a job, but you want to back out and give up and pretty much snatch defeat out of the mouth of victory because it's kind of stretching you - because you have your day job.

I don't think that's a good enough excuse if you think about what it is your Internet business will provide for you and your family for the future. Once you're out, you're going to go and search for something else. You're going to probably go back to another Internet marketing event, or maybe a network marketing event, or maybe a real estate event, or maybe an investing event.

You want me to tell you something? The reality is going to set in. Your job has not gone away. You still have to contend with balancing the new pursuit of the opportunity to build your own thing, versus the time you have to commit to your job. Isn't that true?

No exclusives

Many newbies think they can't succeed in Internet marketing without an exclusive. See here's the thing: if you have an exclusive, then nobody else can market it and make you money. If you have an exclusive, then you have to have tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of dollars to let the world know. That's ridiculous. You don't want to have an exclusive. You want other people out there letting other people know about the product, because that brings more awareness when you have links out there, when you have the banners out there, and when you have articles out there. You don't want an exclusive as a newbie.

But you say you want an exclusive. Well, ask yourself, "Do I have the time to market something exclusively? Do I have the money to market something exclusively? And do I even have the skills to market something exclusively?" That's not what you want. You want other people out there buzzing about it. Keep doing more of what you're supposed to do. Let people see the links that you put out there, the articles you put out there. Using these marketing strategies builds awareness for your links, but yet people are hearing about your product in all these different places. That's more exposure for you!

That's like saying when The Secret came out, one bookstore wanted to have an exclusive on it, so that's the only place it can be sold. Or one radio or one television show wanted to have an exclusive on it, and that's the only place it can get visibility. If that was the case, the thing would've suffered and it would never have become the mega-hit that it's become.

So that's why it was on Larry King and on Elle and on Oprah and on 20/20, and all those shows. It's in Amazon, it's in offline bookstores, and it's in bookstores inside of malls. It's available on thousands of different websites. You can get it through pay-per-click ads all over the place. And, ultimately, hundreds and thousands of people are making money from selling the product.

You don't want an exclusive. You don't want an exclusive. You can't afford an exclusive. You want other people marketing your product because that helps you.

Pushing through

I understand where you are. But the worst mistake of your life would be to back out and quit. Listen, nobody is exempt of having to build their business. Nobody is exempt of having to push through that launching pad. Think about a space shuttle on the launching pad. The reason the space shuttle has those two extra boosters is because it takes more energy and more effort to get off the pad than it does to sustain itself when it's in the air.

It's just like that with business. It takes more effort, more work and more resources to get it started and get it going than it does to sustain it once you've created the momentum. But unfortunately, most people give up before they even get off of the launching pad. Oh, because it's too much work or it's a conflict with this or that. The world is not going to bow on its knee to you and say, "Listen, we're going to make this easy for you." It doesn't happen that way. If it did, everybody would be successful.

You don't quit

I'm here fighting for you because I know that it would be a mistake to quit, because you're not going to learn anything. By quitting you don't learn anything. And I guarantee you, you'll go to another Internet marketing seminar. For one, I guarantee you will regret the decision. It seems like an easy out because for the short-term it will ease some of your pain and some of your stress because of what it is you're going through over the short-term. But over the long-term, it's a disastrous decision.

I absolutely guarantee you - you'll be looking for another opportunity. You'll regret the decision. You'll be at another Internet marketing seminar, you'll be looking to buy something else, and you're sure to find the reality of the situation is you had it good. You had the victory but you gave it up. Whatever it is you get, it's going to involve work and pushing through. We're expecting you to carry out your part and to do this and to learn this and to push through this and to develop the skill that nobody will ever be able to take away from you. Ever, ever, ever. Here's the thing, you don't quit. You don't quit.
