Who Makes You Successful?

By John Olson
Posted Saturday, October 30, 2004

This is one of those questions we all need to think about.

Who is the person who is going to make sure we make it in this online business?

Who is going to hold our hand?

Who is going to be there to help us?

The short answer is,


That's right, You are responsible for your own success.

You can get all the help and advice from me or someone else, but if you don't follow it, if you just read it and then sit back and do nothing, that is what you are going to get... Nothing....

You can look for a mentor and ask them to take you under their wing and show you the ropes, but it's up to you to do the work. I can offer help and advice, but will you take it? Will you do what is necessary to get the job done?

To many of us just sit back waiting for the Magic Internet Marketing Fairy to pop into our program and Wave the Magic Wand and poof... the money will start to role in.

Sorry to disappoint you, there is no Magic Internet Marketing Fairy.

You are responsible for your own success. You need to do the work, place the ads, talk to and write your leads and members under you. You need to ask for help when you need it and then follow it.

I know, I have been guilty of this in the past. How many times did I read or was I told to get an autoresponder but didn't? Until I decided to write my own Marketing Course, I didn't think I need one. I was Wrong. I was lazy.

Since starting that course, I have realized the importance of having a good autoresponder and using it. Not only for the course but to follow up with those who join programs with me. Not to mention Leads....

People told me for years to get one. Did I listen? No, not until I had a real reason to have one, did I go and get one. Then I realized what I was missing in my marketing. I now have about 18 of the things for all kinds of reasons and I keep adding them.

It's the same with Ad Tracking. I have been told for along time to Track my Ads. Did I listen? No I didn't. Until I saw the results of what someone could do by using it and the numbers of new members coming in because of it.

I am now Tracking my ads and I will be doing even more of it. The point is, we all get advice all the time, but most of use don't listen to it. We stubble on thinking we know better, or we just don't want to do the work. Then we complain that we aren't getting sign ups, we aren't making money.

Who is to blame?

We are, we are not listening.

So, where ever you get help from, it's up to you to put that help to work for you.

I can or someone else can offer you the Best Advice in the World, but it doesn't do any good if it goes in one ear and out the other.

Take action yourself if you want to be successful. Don't just sit there.
