Wow, that's a harsh question, isn't it? A loser. Nobody wants to be that.
Unfortunately it's an all too common attitude. I see it all the time. People who assume that they will never succeed because they tried once and failed. So success must be beyond their reach.
But there's a loser attitude that's even worse than that. Let me give you a real life example of what I mean.
(Before I continue, let me say that my purpose in this example isn't to call out anybody. My purpose in writing this is to demonstrate the kind of attitude that will surely lead to failure and that is to be avoided at all costs. If you see any of the attitude that follows in yourself, work hard to get rid of it fast – it will be your downfall.)
Okay, on to the story...
There was a member here at the Q&A who sent some feedback via the contact form. Let me just quote the feedback:
"I did not like the answers I got so I quit this forum. I wish to be no part of promoting lies and scams"
Yup, that was their feedback in its entirety.
Naturally I wanted to know what "lies and scams" this person was being fed, so I looked up his account history. The whole of his experience here involved him asking only two questions. That's it. Just two. He hadn't answered any questions or participated in any other meaningful way.
The wording of his first question made it clear that his attitude was already negative toward Internet Marketing. He basically asked if it was really possible to make any money doing that kind of promotion because nobody he knew was successful at it, and the only person who was "successful" was a "rip-off artist."
Of course many people jumped in and responded very positively, saying how it is possible, but it takes work, dedication, etc., that many people are unwilling to put out. They were encouraging, telling him not to give up, keep trying, and so on. Very nice answers I thought.
And then I got the member's feedback. He was quitting because everyone was lying to him and pitching scams.
This member seems to have felt that because he was unsuccessful, and hung out with unsuccessful people, that everyone must be unsuccessful and therefore lying to him when they said they were doing well.
That, my friend, is a loser attitude.
That attitude must be avoided at all costs if you want to succeed. Thomas Edison tried over 1,000 forms of light bulbs before finally developing the one that worked. Had he adopted this member's attitude I'd probably be typing this out in the dark or by candlelight.
You have to believe that you will make it. No, not believe, you have to know that you will succeed because you are never going to quit until you are successful!
That's a winner's attitude. You can make it, you will make it. Maybe not today, maybe not this week or this month, but you are going to learn and try and work until you achieve your dreams. There is no other acceptable outcome.
You're a winner. Be a winner. Think like a winner. And by all means ONLY hang out with people who have that same mentality.
Will you have failures? Yes.
Will you waste money and time trying? Yes.
Will there be heartbreaking moments when you want to give up? YES!
But you won't give up. When you fall down, you will get up. You will press on. You will do this because you are a winner and there is no other acceptable outcome. You must live your dream. You will.
There is no other acceptable outcome.
Don't want to succeed. Don't try to succeed. Just make it happen!
You know you're a winner. I know you're a winner. Now go show the world!
Here's to YOUR success!
