Success Doesn’t Happen Overnight
By Denise Hall (C) 2003
We’ve all heard that old saying, right? Of course, we have. And it’s so true!
Nothing we try to accomplish in our lives will bring us to our ultimate goals overnight. Everything takes time. Was Rome built in a day? I don’t think so.
Why, then, do people think they’ll become rich in a few days, a week or a month if they run an internet business?
Good question. Maybe it’s because there’s so much hype out there. It sounds good to say “just sign up 20 people and money will flow in!”
Yes, actually, that does sound good. But no one tells you hard part is signing up those 20 people. I'm not saying it can't be done. I just mean it takes time and effort on your part.
How many of us have fallen for “get rich quick” promises? Probably most of us. Online and offline, there are plenty of scams and hype. It’s easy to get caught up in presentation of program and think that it will work fast. Unfortunately, when it doesn’t work out immediately, alot of people give up and feel like failures.
Working at any business takes time and effort. I used to sell cosmetics door to door for a great company. I’m sure all of you know one I’m talking about. There’s no doubt products sell themselves. But I still didn’t have a large client base or hundreds of sales overnight.
Why? Because customers want to know you’re reliable. They need to see you at their door with new brochure every other week. Eventually they will place a small order to see if you deliver it when promised. Once you gain their confidence they will order more as time goes on. One by one they start to place orders and your customer base grows.
