Why I Was Successful in 2001 and Why You Could Be Too

Written by Glen Palo

It isrepparttar end of another year and I am thankful forrepparttar 117804 many blessings. This last year wasrepparttar 117805 best year ever business-wise. How many can say that? I am not inrepparttar 117806 same league as people like Robert Blackman, Terry Dean, Cory Rudl among others. At least not yet. How about you?

Byrepparttar 117807 sheer volume of email I received duringrepparttar 117808 year, I know there are many frustrated people trying to make a few bucks inrepparttar 117809 hottest, latest affiliate, network marketing, home business idea launched duringrepparttar 117810 year. I've read aboutrepparttar 117811 frustration on home biz forums and inrepparttar 117812 group clubs. I even started recognizingrepparttar 117813 same names of people promotingrepparttar 117814 newest programs. I've been tempted several times to write and ask how they are doing and what's happened withrepparttar 117815 programs they've joined.

Before looking forward to next year, it's important to look back and analyze what worked for me and what didn't. One of my favorites quotes is by Albert Einstein who said, "The definition of insanity is doingrepparttar 117816 same thing over and over expectingrepparttar 117817 results to change."

One ofrepparttar 117818 things that most sticks out in my mind that contributed to my successful year is learning new skills. I believe learning is never done so one of my goals last year was to read books by successful people. Two books that hadrepparttar 117819 biggest impression on me were Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" and Richard Brooke's "Mach II With Your Hair on Fire."

I also learned new skills by subscribing to and reading several good newsletters.

Phil Wiley's All My Secrets - http://www.ozemedia.com Cynted Chronicle - http://www.cynted.com/subscribe.html Boogie Jack's Almost A Newsletter - http://www.boogiejack.com Jim Rohn's Weekly Ezine - http://www.jimrohn.com Big Al's Recruiting Newsletter - http://www.fortunenow.com GROKDotCom - http://www.grokdotcom.com Slight Edge Newsletter - http://www.yoursuccessstore.com Dirtsmart Netrepreneur - http://www.dirtsmart.com Achieve USA Home Business Journal - http://www.achieveusa.com

I attribute my successful year torepparttar 117820 ability to track my advertising campaigns to findrepparttar 117821 ones that worked. Having a limited advertising budget, it was critical to getrepparttar 117822 "most bang for my buck" when it came to advertising. To that end, one ofrepparttar 117823 most useful suite of web promotion tools is ROIbot (http://www.roibot.com/r.cgi?R33095_2002). Because ofrepparttar 117824 quality ofrepparttar 117825 program,repparttar 117826 ROIbot reseller program also contributed to my profitability.

Running ads in newsletters was my most successful form of advertising. However, not all newsletters are created equal. My most effective ads were run in newsletters that focused on home businesses. I wasrepparttar 117827 least successful running ads in newsletters that were primarily ad sheets or those that run separate classified ad issues.

Take Back Your Mind!

I really get upset when I receive emails from new marketers telling me allrepparttar ways that won't make money. The worst part is they are being told this bunk by fellow marketers.

They are really being told,repparttar 117803 individual they are talking with hasn't made any money online.

Stop listening to anyone who isn't going where you want to go and doing what you want to do.

Stop worrying aboutrepparttar 117804 economy.

Get out your shovel and buryrepparttar 117805 doom and gloom. Become a "good news" merchant starting now.

The news is pounding you withrepparttar 117806 message that this isrepparttar 117807 worst economy in history.


There have been better economies and there have been worse.

The economy doesn't control your success.

The president doesn't control your success.

If you want to succeed online, you better take back control of your mind. Start listening to good news merchants.

Start acting as if it were impossible to fail.
