Keeping Focussed

For all the students that still need my help, these are some words of encouragement and please contact me. As I said in my last blog, it is easier to email me first. There are still a few weeks to the Advance Course starts and I want you all to be a success and start making money online.

Have you ever just sat and thought about the really successful people and why are they so successful?

They are certainly no cleverer than you probably – and a lot of the most successful people did not have a formal education. So how did people like Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and, in more modern times, Bill Gates achieve the results they have? It is the belief and focus that led to their greatness. Not one of these three people finished college. Bill Gates left Harvard to start Microsoft and Henry Ford and Thomas Edison never even went on to a secondary education. Thomas Edison is known as the forefather of the modern times because of his many inventions.

They were all passionate believers in their own abilities and they stayed focussed and were not swayed by what others thought or said. I think focus and persistence is almost the same thing. This particularly applies to anyone who ventures into the field of internet marketing. As a student or newbie in this field, you will often get comments similar to – “get yourself a second job and earn some money” or “don’t waste your time and energy, you will never make money like that”. Just smile at any family member or friends who talk to you like that.

Never take your eye off the results you want to achieve. This is where you must stay focussed on what you believe. It is the belief that you have the ability to get your desired results.

It took Thomas Edison thousands of attempts before he perfected the electric light bulb. He tested 3000 filaments alone. We all know that Henry Ford was the first person to build a car, it had never been done before – but he stayed focused on what he believed.

If people are so persistent and focussed, they will attain what they set out to do. Never allow yourself to be discouraged. This saying is attributed to Thomas Edison and I find it very true. “Genius is one per cent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration. Accordingly, a ’genius’ is often merely a talented person who has done all of his or her homework.”

    ‘…who has done all of his or her homework.” I’m still finishing up, Mark. I’m glad I still have a little more time before the next class. I had to stop and create a new squeeze page for my adswaps…which meant getting a little better with files and folders. I started with what you taught in class. Thank you.

    Focus is so important. In this information overload world. It is so easy lose the plot. So many ideas, and so many adverts telling you the about the hottest new product that you simply must have to succeed.
    It can be very difficult for the newbie to stay on track.
