I’ve done hundreds of strategy calls over the past few months.
And not a day goes by when I don’t have a conversation just like this…
ME: How long have you been trying to build your online business?
THEM: 3 years.
ME: What do you do you MARKET your business?
THEM: The usual stuff. Facebook and blogging.
ME: Ok, what EXACTLY did you do yesterday on Facebook?
THEM: Ummm…. I don’t remember.
ME:Ok, let’s take a look at your Facebook page. What’s your FB address?
THEM: I can’t remember the name of my FB page (that means they either forgot it or haven’t updated it in months).
ME:Fine, let’s look at your blog (As I look I see their last post was 4 months ago). I noticed you haven’t posted new content in over 4 months. Why not?
THEM: I’ve been busy.
You get the idea. I’m serious, this happens every single day.
Now, I’m going to put on my coaching hat. And I say ENOUGH!!!
Enough of the lies (stop lying to yourself!).
Enough of the distractions (get off every list that distracts you and doesn’t add value).
Enough of the excuses.
Enough of searching for “the secret” (there is not one $9 WSO product that I know of that will make you “rich” overnight).
YOU’VE GOTTA HUSTLE
ALL of my successful students worked hard to build 6, 7 and even 8-figure businesses.
And whether their path was through creating content (like Zach Even-Esh or Kevin Gianni) or buying media (Mike Geary) – they worked for it.
If you haven’d reached your goals, don’t blame me and don’t blame the “gurus”.
There’s one person to blame – and it’s the person staring right back at you in the mirror.
I know, it’s not easy. This is the hard stuff. It took me 3 years until I was able to leave my “job” and do this full-time. But this is the time when you have to get real and dig down deep in your soul.
It’s more difficult than buying an ad on Facebook. It’s much more difficult.
And this is why I’m here and always putting out new content. It’s also why I’ll never stop. Hopefully something I write will either inspire you or give you that kick in the butt you need.
You deserve to live a great life. We all do. I can give you the blueprint, but I can’t do it for you.
The only thing worse than mediocrity is laziness. This doesn’t mean you have to work 20 hours a day. But it does mean if you really want it, you’ll have to choose between watching 8 hours of football on Sunday (or aimlessly surfing the web) and taking decisive action. The choice is yours to make.
So take a deep breath. Stop making excuses. Get real with yourself. And take one step towards your goal today (it could be a blog post, reaching out for an interview, a new video, etc.). It doesn’t happen overnight – but it DOES work if you never, ever give up.
Your coach has spoken.
