|DON'T QUIT! (Or Why I'm 2 Years Behind Where I Should Be)|

If I've got one lesson for anyone looking to make money via internet marketing it's this - never quit! Those who've read my blog and seen my videos in various places online will know that I'm doing pretty well at the moment from internet marketing and that I'm gaining a following as an internet marketing and MLM coach and, Yes, I'm earning some pretty decent money!
However, I want to tell you a little story. A few years ago I quit internet marketing completely for about a year and a half. I was simply fed up. I thought I was doing all the right things. I was building a list, I was branding myself, I was using social media, I was upgraded in loads of problems, I was in a CTP and other teams and was hitting the daily targets, I was signed up for some excellent progams, and I was blogging. But nothing was happening. Yes, my list was growing and I was picking up some free membership referrals in some of my programs. But I wasn't making money. So I quit. What was it that I had been doing wrong? The answer - ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
I had quit just at the very point where I was about to achieve success. I had thrown away four months of hard work and got out of the car and left the race just as I was about to drive around the final corner and see the chequered flag. My stupidity has cost me, at a rough estimation, somewhere between $150,000 - $200,000 as to where I would be now if I hadn't lost nearly two years out of my business and had to start again from scratch.
You see it took me a long time to learn a simple fact that should have been obvious to an experienced businessman like myself that had launched several offline businesses - that results cannot be guaranteed during the first year but that they will arrive, as sure as night follows day, if you are doing the right things and keep doing them. I was doing everything right and should have known this, but like many people was somehow expecting that different rules applied online and that things should be happening more quickly. They don't and they won't.
As soon as I learnt this painful lesson I went back online and resolved never to give up. When the money ran out I borrowed some more. Sure enough, eventually the money started arriving, at more or less the exact same stage that I'd quit the time before. And after that, I never looked back.
So, keep doing the right things. AND NEVER GIVE UP. If you keep building your list and are consistent in your activity, branding and message then you CANNOT fail, given time.
