Let's Get PositiveWritten by Anita Foley
It seems that lately Iíve been reading an awful lot of articles in e-zines about difficulty of doing business online. They talk about all hype, all scams, all lies and false promises. They talk about all worthless web sites, loaded with affiliate links, promising millions and delivering nothing. They talk about undeliverable and returned e-mail, fake addresses, junk mail and spam. They talk about server problems, software problems, hardware problems, too many ads, too many viruses, not enough content, lost messages, lost lists, lost customers, and lost dreams!
SHEESH! All this negative stuff really makes ME want to do business online! How about you?
Iíd like to take a moment here and tell you about some of POSITIVE stuff that has happened in my life since I started doing business online.
First of all, Iíve learned, for FREE, more about marketing, promotion, and ad writing than I could have learned for $80,000 at an Ivy League school. Iíve learned more about human nature than I could have learned if Iíd become a psychiatrist. Iíve encountered both folks who create elaborate schemes to rip people off and ones who do an honest business online. It has been a valuable learning experience in both instances.
Iíve learned that you donít have to create something new or re-invent wheel to make money online. You can join an affiliate program to get started with your first business. Iíve learned that wealth can happen, and that it CAN happen to me!
Iíve learned that my college economics professor was wrong when he said, ďthereís no such thing as a free lunch.Ē You really CAN advertise online for free, and there is NO catch!
Iíve also made more friends and business acquaintances on Internet than Iíve made in my 30 years of working in corporate jobs. Itís amazing how many friendly, helpful people there are out there. Iíve been able to help people out as well, which has been extremely satisfying.
PatienceWritten by Mary Wilkey
How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience, would have achieved success? ~ Elbert Hubbard
Were there some way to accurately tabulate statistics on answer to this question, I think it would be a mind boggling figure.
The reason I have come to that conclusion is plain and simple. Human beings in general have very little patience.
The Bible says, "In your patience possess ye your souls." To me, that reads and means that if I don't develop and cultivate patience, it could cost me my soul. That being case, it would behoove every one of us to try to improve our patience barometer.
When things don't happen immediately, people are too willing to give up. They fail to persevere and develop stick-ability.
Most people when they have problems do not look at them as being trials, but insurmountable obstacles, instead of stepping stones they are. Problems are given to us to get below surface of our being into creative Mind of God, because that's where all answers lie.
