Us Vs Them – The Great Divide! [VIDEO]

Oh the great divide! The little guy vs the big guy! The newbie vs the guru! The have nots vs the haves!

Nothing creates more division and anger in the internet marketing world than this fabricated battle of two groups of entrepreneurs. Let me share with you a quick story about how I got started online…

Way back in 2001, I was already a few years into trying to make money online. I tried my hand in this program, I thought I would get rich in that program. But needless to say, I was spinning my wheels. Until I started hanging out with a group of guys that didn’t ‘hold me down’ but actually encouraged me to grow.

I credit a lot of the a success I have found over the years from these guys that even though they knew more than me and had much more successful businesses, they in fact encouraged me to grow and start climbing the mountain of success. (Special thanks to Rich Taylor, Michael Russell, Robert Fortin and Robert Puddy for the kicks in the butt and massive support!!!)

You see…It’s all about the people you keep around you.

If you are around a group of people that say things like ‘the gurus have all the money‘, the ‘big guys have the mailing lists, so we can’t compete‘, or ‘I’m so broke, I can never be a success‘…Run away from them!

A huge tip, no one online was more qualified than you are now when they got started too. Sure there are some folks that had a silver spoon and leg up in life, but that’s not an excuse for you to not try hard to build your dreams. The only difference between someone who is a success and someone who is not, is that they’ve been doing it longer and have failed more times than you.

That’s it.

There is no secret group of people ‘holding you back’…It’s all self inflicted and with the help of the ‘It’s Not Fair‘ Brigade as well….Get away from it now! If you can’t spend what others spend, invest your time into a project. If you don’t have the list others do, find out ways to grow your list day by day. So you lose to someone in a contest, get back on the horse and figure out how to win the next time.

There are no limits folks, absolutely none to what you can accomplish. You just need to stop thinking it’s Us vs Them….It’s You vs You!

  1. Awesome post Jon! I don’t run from those other guys, I try to help them. I am not going to beat my head against the wall trying though. If you want to be successful, you have to do what successful people do. The best way to do that is like you said…hang out with the positive successful people. I know that one of the keys to success is helping others to be successful. There are a lot of people that don’t get it that need your help. I know it is also important to keep a balance. Don’t always be looking down to help people, look up. If you can help a successful person be more successful and get them on your team, that will get you where you want to go. You are a perfect example of having done just that Jon! 😉

    1. Yeah you can be dragged down though, if you stick around the grumpy’s too long…I see it in this business all the time. They hate seeing anyone rise.

  2. Well said.

    “If you don’t have the list others do, find out ways to grow your list day by day.”
    There are enough GOOD traffic exchanges out there to help with this, along with GOOD mailers as well. The problem I think is most want it now, or for some, yesterday. Getting past the “now mindset” seems to be quite the battle for a lot of people. It takes time, no doubt!

    For those that have already gotten past this point there is great opportunity though. Help those newcomers, show them the way. Sometimes people are more willing to listen to someone that is not in the “spotlight” so the opportunity here is massive!

    Very easy to point fingers in just about any situation.
