Success is Boring
I recently heard a statistic that 90% of network marketers quit before they even earn $500. It is an unfortunate statistic and a sad reality of the industry. I believe the reason people fail is simple, success takes work and doing the consistent things you need to do to achieve success can be boring.
"Earning success is hard. The process is laborious, tedious, sometimes even boring... so if you have an aversion to work, discipline, and commitment, you're welcome to turn the TV back on and put your hope in the next informercial.." Darren Hardy, The Compound Effect
The Compound Effect
Two things to help you get to success even when it’s boring
These two things…
…are the little things that really make a big difference over time.
It doesn’t seem like it’ll make a big difference when you do it once or twice…
But when you do it over a period of 90 days, six months, a year, it seriously tends to accumulate.
All you need for all that to happen is really just one word…
It all comes down to discipline.
I love this quote by Jim Rohn…
“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments. It’s like a set of magic keys that you can use to unlock all the doors to wealth, happiness, achievement, success and so forth.”
If you just make a commitment to stay disciplined to the things that you need to do on a daily basis, all kinds of good stuff is going to happen.
It takes a conisitency.
It takes some habit forming to make yourself do the stuff that you need to do regardless of how you feel.
Somedays I would rather turn on the TV and tune out the world
It’s a habit.
So I do it.
I don’t even think about it anymore.
But I promise you there are days when I don’t feel like it, but I do it anyway, because it’s a habit…
Most people are just not willing to be disciplined or consistent.
Think about this…
It’s not just online.
It’s not just business.
What will happen if you make the commitment to do some kind of exercise every single day?
You do it for a week, you do it for a month, you do it for 90 days.
Are you going to notice some results?
We know this stuff, and yet most people don’t do it.
Lack of consistency and lack of discipline.
Where Will You Be in a Year?
What would happen if you decided to read a book every single day?
Not a full book, mind you, but spending 30 minutes reading every day on the topic of copywriting, for example.
What’s going to happen to your copywriting ability if you actually spend 30 minutes to an hour every single day studying copywriting?
In a matter of six months or a year you’re going to be one of the best copywriters around.
It’s a fact, not a possibility.
It will happen.
It’s not going to happen after a day, but it will happen after a few months of discipline.
It’s the same thing with doing all this stuff in your business.
If you do what you commit to do, every single day, things are going to start turning around for you.
12 Words to Live By
Here are twelve words that I heard in a seminar from Tom Hopkins, a famous sales trainer who I’ve studied for years.
He said when he began his selling career years and years ago, he wrote these twelve words down on a piece of paper, put it on his desk, and kept it in front of him all the time to keep himself on track.
“Am I doing the most productive thing possible at every given moment?”
Ask yourself this question no matter what you do and you’re going to know whether you’re on track.
If in your calendar you’ve allocated this hour to be on a webinar, or to listen to this call, then that is the most productive thing for that particular moment.
If you’ve committed the next 30 minutes to writing an email, then that’s what you’ve got to do for the next 30 minutes.
If in the next two hours, you’ve made a commitment to spend some time with your kids, then that is the most productive thing possible you can do at that moment.
If you run your life through that lens of doing the most productive thing possible at every given moment, all of a sudden time management will not be an issue…
…and you’re going to be able to spend more quality time with your family…
…and you’re going to be able to create a business that gets massive results.
It’s that simple.
So What Really Matters?
What are the things that you need to do that move your business forward, which you can commit to do on a daily basis?
Well, I have good news…
There are ONLY two things you must focus on daily when building an online business.
And they are…
You’ve got to do something to drive traffic every day. Whether it’s Facebook Live, creating a video, creating a blog post, or doing something to get more traffic to your capture pages, sales pages, or offer pages, you MUST drive traffic every day.
Next, do something that can actually create a sale. You can get all the traffic that you can for the day, but how about writing an email? How about connecting with the people that are in your pipeline? Those are the things that most people don’t do, at least not on a regular basis. Yet that is exactly what’s going to move your business forward. That is what’s going to drive your sales, your conversions, and ultimately your income.
Now, may I make a suggestion?
Because, full disclosure…
It can take a fair bit of costly trail and error to learn how to drive traffic and convert sales every day.
However, I do know a proven shortcut…
Which has helped dozens of marketers get profitable (often within just a few days).
And that’s taking an over-the-shoulder tour of…
