This is story time with Jon and sadly, I’m using myself as the example…This is depressing folks, get ready to learn how I lost $10,000 by being as average as they come….
By now, you’ve heard about Bitcoin! I know right! Everyone and their aunt is talking about it and I’m sure one of your family members has pitched you on some scam or scheme that promises massive Bitcoin returns…
Anywho, that’s not the point of this post, I wanna show you why being ‘average’ is a bad game plan for your online career….
About 5 years ago, my company got into Bitcoin. Before most people knew what it was, we invested in mining rigs and were generating about a Bitcoin a day for a decent amount of time.
We ended up selling some, exchanging others and dipped out of the game when we thought things we’re heading south.
We became ‘AVERAGE‘ investors.
Things looked bleak, we got out…We didn’t stay the course!
As of this blog post, Bitcoin is close or has surpassed $10,000 USD per coin….SHOOT ME NOW!!!
Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t weigh your options and it’s hard to have any regret when you do make a profit. However I want to show this example with what I see online with affiliate marketing when it comes to new marketers and ‘staying the course’.
One of the biggest reasons we see so much failure online is that most marketers give up, before they even have a chance to start running.
Things take a dip, we give up! We hit a rough patch, we throw our arms in the air and scream victim. It’s the industries fault! It’s so-and-so’s fault! I blame the government!!!
YOU are responsible for your own success. No one else!
And when you start to look at it from that angle, you stop being average and you start becoming remarkable.
Hey it’s supposed to be hard, and it’s supposed to suck at times…But if you stay the course and ride the roller coaster, you will awlays come out on top in the future. Average people give up when it gets rough. And average marketers jump from opportunity to opportunity without staying the course.
So stop being average, and don’t be a ‘Jon‘…Stick with what you are passionate about and you will see results.
P.S. We technically didn’t get out of the Bitcoin game, we’ve just been playing with cryptocurrency and silently learning every day! And this weekend, launched this…
