The 'Rome' Factor
Bigger! Better! Faster! I want it now! I want millions!
That seems to be the popular thought process of the majority of people that join this business. I do not know who to point the finger at, maybe even myself because I have fallen victim to the lies and hype so many times before but why must we keep feeding these beasts?
Let's put it this way, success is NOT achieved in this business by jumping ship every 2 weeks. I call it slot machine marketing, and the 'guru's' call it their meal ticket. Folks, it takes time to build a business. Whether it's online, offline or elsewhere, real results are not measured by how quick you get in on a new matrix. It's not determined how many people you refer to a program in a week. It takes time and effort!
I get e-mails every week from people that are fed up with a business after only a month or two of promoting it? Let's be honest, what REAL business can you name that has put the owners into profit after only 2 months of work? What about the months of planning before the program was launched? What about the endless hours of programming? Marketing? Analysis? Not to mention the money! It does not happen overnight.
I urge you to rethink joining that brand new matrix that got released last week. Or that wonderful auto surf that promises millions from simply 're-investing'...Take your time! Build the ground work for a successful business model. If you are involved in an affiliate program, get involved in it and see what you can do to help out. Just don't jump ship when things get rough.
I hate using 'popular sayings' but this one is so true...Rome was not built in a day! And neither should your online business.
