* "Grant Me Patience, Lord. But Please Hurry!" Practicing patience is a hard one for me. I always want what I want yesterday (the day before would be much better). I expect results NOW! Net marketing has taught me to slow down, learn what I can handle today and to have no expectations for a least a year. I remember reading, "Internet marketers don't fail; they just give up before they succeed."
* "Mommy, I Can't See It, But I Just Know There's A Monster In My Closet!" I have learned that fear is imaginary monster in my closet. I am very, very slowly overcoming my fear of failure. Just writing this article is a HUGE step for me. The thought of submitting it is downright terrifying! But whether this article gets published or not is not point anymore. I can still consider myself a winner. I pushed through my fear. I sat down, wrote it and submitted it.
* "The Path Of Your Destiny Is Determined By Your Thoughts." I refuse to let negativity enter my mind. I have an attitude of expecting positive things to happen. I think that's an IMPORTANT key to success in sales. I think that's a VITAL key to success in living.
I'm still very raw around edges. I know I have a long road ahead of me. The more I learn, more I realize I need to learn more. I've made a lot of mistakes and there's A LOT more in future. But I'm comfortable with fact that every mistake is just one more step forward. And I'm comfortable with concept that Internet marketing will keep evolving...keep re-inventing itself. I will never reach point where I can say, "I know it all." I will always be a student; I will always be learning. I find that EXCITING!
I know deep in my heart that one day (not today, not tomorrow, perhaps not even a year from now), I will be very good at this. I will be very good at this because I'm not doing it for money. I'm doing it because I love doing it. I'm doing it to keep that PASSION alive.
So to go back to beginning of what "successful" means: I am a very HAPPY person. I feel FORTUNATE to have found something that has introduced passion in my life. I will be UNBEATEN because it's not all about money. And because of that I will be UNDEFEATED because I will be able to ride out rough times. And I am BLOSSOMING, not only as a marketer, but also as a human being.
