Persistence, What You Need to Succeed

Written by John Olson

Persistence is what you need to succeed.

And you need to know that you can succeed. You can do it.

Several years ago, I was in need of a job. And not just any job. I needed one that paid well, but had flexibility. I was working also as an Actor and doing Commercials both Radio and TV as well as training tapes. Something I still do, but which has slowed down quite a bit inrepparttar last years. But I needed to be able to not work on short notice to be able to go to auditions and studios.

Anyway, I need a special kind of job. And what I found and what I succeed in will surprise you.

I did Door-to-Door Sales.

Before I started this, I would have beenrepparttar 122549 last person who would have thought I had what it took to go Door to Door and sell things. But not only did I do it, I made Money at it, and believe it or not... I had Fun doing it. I was 5th inrepparttar 122550 whole company for sales one year.

We sold a card, a piece of heavy paper which gaverepparttar 122551 barer discounts on Oil Changes, Service Work, Tires andrepparttar 122552 like. Or discounts on Pizza. I loved sellingrepparttar 122553 Pizza cards. Talking about something good to eat and saving people money was really fun.

The people I met were great. You never really know how many wonderful people there are inrepparttar 122554 world until you talk with them. Of course some were not so nice, but 99% of them were great and good people.

But when I started this, I needed something. I needed to be persistent. I didn't start out as a top salesman. As with anything, I needed to learn how to dorepparttar 122555 job. I was fortunate in that I had great teachers, and we offered real savings to people.

I was motivated, I needed to make money and I needed to do it fast and every week. So I listened and learned from those who were doing it week after week. And I started to make money. Many weeks I made over $1,000. That felt real good.

But not every week started out great. Sometimes we had a bad contract, or a neighborhood that wasn't working out. But I kept at it, I kept walking up to those doors, knocking and telling people about what I offered. Every week, I made money, some weeks were, $600 weeks, some were $1,200 weeks. But as long as I was knocking on doors and talking to people, I knew I was going to make sales. And I did.

Who Makes You Successful?

Written by John Olson

This is one of those questions we all need to think about.

Who isrepparttar person who is going to make sure we make it in this online business?

Who is going to hold our hand?

Who is going to be there to help us?

The short answer is,


That's right, You are responsible for your own success.

You can get allrepparttar 122548 help and advice from me or someone else, but if you don't follow it, if you just read it and then sit back and do nothing, that is what you are going to get... Nothing....

You can look for a mentor and ask them to take you under their wing and show yourepparttar 122549 ropes, but it's up to you to dorepparttar 122550 work. I can offer help and advice, but will you take it? Will you do what is necessary to getrepparttar 122551 job done?

To many of us just sit back waiting forrepparttar 122552 Magic Internet Marketing Fairy to pop into our program and Waverepparttar 122553 Magic Wand and poof...repparttar 122554 money will start to role in.

Sorry to disappoint you, there is no Magic Internet Marketing Fairy.

You are responsible for your own success. You need to dorepparttar 122555 work, placerepparttar 122556 ads, talk to and write your leads and members under you. You need to ask for help when you need it and then follow it.

I know, I have been guilty of this inrepparttar 122557 past. How many times did I read or was I told to get an autoresponder but didn't? Until I decided to write my own Marketing Course, I didn't think I need one. I was Wrong. I was lazy.
