Key To Success

What do you do when you come across a key to success in a book you're reading? You ponder over it. Since I read many books and come across many keys, I thought it would be fun to share the ideas that arise as I contemplate a key to success. Reading is not just about absorbing information, it's also about contemplating, allowing the ideas to blossom within, and nurturing a seed tossed in the rich soil of the inner garden.

I got my Master's degree in psychotherapy more than a decade ago. Since then I've studied the human condition with fascination. Over the years, I've learned a singular lesson: your life does not work when you oppose your soul nature. If you want a magical life, you have to drop your inauthentic transactions with the world. You discover your own power when you spend time alone to figure out what you really love to do.

The Right Answers To Internet Marketing

We live in a knowledge era. In fact, internet marketing is based on the creation and
dissemination of knowledge. Success in Internet Marketing is only possible when you master and apply the right answers.

Why do so many people struggle heroically with Internet Marketing, only to fail, give up, and return to their lackluster life, claiming bitterly that “it doesn’t work?”

There obviously is no shortage of information nor of ways to build a home based business.

If there were only failures, one could legitimately conclude that the copious information is at fault and that all online opportunities are fraudulent.

Yet there are people who use that information and use that opportunity and develop what is popularly known as the Internet Marketing lifestyle, in which they stay at home, spend time with their families, indulge in their hobbies, and make money whether working or sleeping.

If you read the biographies of these gurus, you find that most had very little understanding or competence when they first set out. Yet through sheer persistence they pushed through and found the right answers, implemented them, and slowly climbed to heights of success, earning in a month what the average employee, slaving away in a corporation where he is continually bullied and harassed to toe the company line, earns in a year.

Here is what is probably going on. These are the 7 deadly sins.

1. A failure to find the right guru, someone with a proven track record.
2. Failure to leverage the best opportunity to express one’s interests.
3. Failure to commit and structure time to allow for learning and practice.
4. Low self-esteem and insufficient will to complete tasks.
5. Refusal to commit, getting distracted, and losing track of progress.
6. Inability to focus on a simple workable plan.
7. Giving up.

Yet all these boil down to an even more essential weakness: the failure to learn, identify the right answers, and build sufficient momentum.

It takes focus and concentration to learn anything. A smattering of skills is not enough. Until you can prove results through your bottom line, that is, your bank balance, you have to assume that you do not know and you have to make the effort to learn.

Do this now.

Take 3 sheets of paper.

On the first sheet write where you are now and how you got there.

Then on another sheet, write the header, “What do I know?” Fill this out.

Finally, on the third sheet, write, “What do I not know?”

Now, you have CLARITY. You have set confusion and frustration aside.

Your task is now to start getting the right answers. When you next download an information product—read it through completely, reread it and take notes, and then experiment with the ideas, tweaking them as you go along.

Seek knowledge, seek the right answers, and you, too, will start earning “impossible” monthly incomes.

Why settle for failure when you can be a soaring success and live the lifestyle that you really want?
