The Best Time To Plant A Tree Was Twenty Years Ago. The Second Best Time Is Now.
I have always loved this proverb. When an idea to plant something comes up, you take action and plant it. But do you actually sit there and wait for the trees to grow?
So today I wanted to share with you some of the biggest concerns and questions that people often write me about…
“I only have one hour each day, can this work?”,
“I work full time and I have kids and family, can I still do this?”
“I don’t have any money to invest”
“I have a full time job, I want something I can do easily”
“Who are you? Stop sending me emails!” Lol, no joke…I’ve gotten several of these since I started in the Internet Marketing…people forget because they’re overwhelmed and are getting a LOT of emails on a daily basis from Internet Marketers, to the point that they forgot that they opted in to my websites.
Majority of Internet Marketers are writing you on a daily basis – telling you to join the “next big thing” or the “new shiny program” that just launched. So what happens when you’re faced with these kind of emails on a daily basis? Do you actually end up taking action? I’m willing to bet that you’d end up procrastinating, because one thing sounds too good, then another thing sounds great, and the next thing sounds wonderful. You’d end up in a non ending loop without going anywhere.
So here’s my answer: “It’s completely up to YOU. You have the answer”
The mind is a powerful force. If you say you can’t, you’re not going anywhere, just accept that you’re going to stay in a non endless circle of unhappiness. If you say you can, I believe you can too!
You are on Internet Marketers list for a reason. You looked online to find ways to make money on the Internet. Maybe you’re just looking to earn some extras. Or maybe you’re looking to make a full time living like many of the big guys and gals in the industry. If you are reading my blog or on my newsletters list, you’re also there for a reason.
I will tell you upfront right now…if you want to build a true online business and have a fat healthy bank account, then YOU have to take responsibility for YOURSELF and your FUTURE right now. No one else is responsible for your financial situation. It’s up to you and you only to make that decision!
Over the past year I have seen a lot of emails like this:
“I don’t have the time because I need to make time with my family” – I have a family also, I started this part time while I still had a full time job. And now I have a family and a little toddler running around and keeping me busy most of the day, but I managed to make time for my business and for YOU. Ask me how?
“I just want someone to show me how to really build a business” – Reallllllyyyyy? Then you have the option to unsubscribe from the Internet Marketers who don’t resonate with you, that includes me. It’s for your own benefits, trust me. So no hurt feelings and I’ll still help you if you need pointers or need help in your business. Just save my email address but you won’t hear from me again. See how simple it is?
“I don’t have any money but I want that kind of lifestyle” – I’m not a financial advisor. I had what many considered a high paying job. But when I transitioned to become a full time Internet Marketer, I spent a lot of money on courses because I was hungry for more information. But I became overwhelmed and was pulled in too many directions without clear guideline. Many people don’t have money to start with, you’ll come up with a solution if you want success as much as you want to breathe.
If you have been on the Internet Marketing for a while and not getting results, then stop treating it like a hobby. The longer you treat Internet Marketing like a hobby, the more you will see obstacles standing in your way to becoming successful. You will spend a lot more money for the next shiny thing only for it to rot and collect digital dusts. Your loved ones will doubt you and upset you for all those money spent with nothing back in return.
You can make a change in your life. Take massive action within the next three to six months. Remove all your distractions and focus on taking action.
I am going to end this post again with a Chinese old proverb “The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.” Pursue your dreams. Don’t wait for tomorrow.
