You see most people think I succeed in this business because I'm "good with computers" or even, hilariously, because I have a degree, or I can write.
They are wrong.
I've succeeded because of just one thing - I didn't quit. OK so the smart-arses amongst you will - well say yeah but the failures quit.
Yes, that's exactly my point! Ssomeone once said to me
"99% of people who try to make a living online fail and quit. And they quit, just before they start to succeed".
And when I look around at the people who have succeeded, the ones that have done really well? Better than me? Why's that then - why do they make three, or five or even more times a month more than I do? Are they smarter? Nope. Younger? Some of them. A different gender? Some of them.
Some of them have kids, some not. Some are single, some not. Some are in debt and trying to save their homes. Others had neither income nor debts. Some are old, some young, male and female, educated and not.
They have nothing in common, they don't even sell the same products, use the same affiliates, or have the same business models. Quite a number of them have had (or their families have had) health issues - which if you are American, seems to lead, invariably to huge debts.
There is just one thing that all of these people do have in common. They have worked bloody hard, and they really, really wanted to succeed.
Not everything they have tried has made them money, but they have tried so many things, and done so much work, that they have finally made some money. If something failed to work out they didn't spend a lot of time bitching about it in forums or on Facebook. Instead they picked themselves up and tried a different approach.
