Motivation Monday - Don't listen to the people who say you can't do something
In the world of online marketing, most of us are learning on our own without having someone hold our hands through the process. We usually get into online marketing because we want to make money online and then we get sucked into to the entire world of SEO, marketing, design, etc. What would have happened if we listened to all of the naysayers in the beginning when we mentioned something along the lines of "I'm going to work online and make money!" we probably wouldn't be striving towards success online in order to be our own boss and have true freedom from the work zone environment.
People come from all different backgrounds and religions, but there is a bridge between us when it comes to online marketing. We all love it and we all want to be the best at it, but you can't do that unless you're passionate and actually try, without giving up.
Be the dreamer you want to be, just like when you were a kid and wanted to be a Ninja or a Ballerina, don't let anyone stop you from thinking that way. In this discussion, I'll be going over a few motivational things that I want you to read, bookmark, remember, and use to drive you day to day.
They say you can't do it because THEY can't do it
Most of the time when someone tells you that "You can't do it!" says this because they themselves haven't been able to do it or they haven't even tried. People all around you will discourage your ideas because they think it isn't possible to do something, but that's just because they have no vision or drive, unlike you!
Don't let people talk you out of your dreams
It's sad to say, but the majority of the time, the people closest to you are the ones who will crush your dreams. Your friends and family will be the ones to tell you something can't be done or you shouldn't waste your time doing something because you'll never be successful at it. What the f*ck do they know about your dreams and aspirations?!?!?!
Don't let the negative people in your life drag you down with them. Who are they to tell you that YOU can't do something with your life because they think you're going to fail. No one can talk you out of your dream, but you can let them do it, so stay strong and driven.
Just because it's never been done, doesn't mean it's impossible
There have been plenty of modern breakthroughs because someone tried to do the impossible and made it possible. There have been plenty of things, from the cars we drive today to the medical miracles saving lives, that were seen as insane but now are common things we see and use every day. People will tell you something is impossible because they don't see how someone can achieve the impossible.
Nothing is impossible, it's just improbable but can be overcome and be made a reality.
People are building taller buildings every day, doing double backflips on dirtbikes, curing cancer, etc. and all of these were thought to be impossible before they were actually achieved.
Some of the greatest achievements came about because someone took a chance
Taking chances on something will only prove the naysayers wrong when you become successful. People will say you shouldn't take a chance on something because you'll waste your time, invest too much money for a little payoff, hurt yourself, etc. Prove them wrong and show them that the juice is worth the squeeze, and they should think before they tell you no
You have to break the rules, not the law, the rules
People are always afraid to break the rules, but in reality, this is what makes the world advance. Playing it safe will keep you where your competitors are, so breaking a few rules here and there will open up some doors to success that others might not have access to.
Break the rules, not the law, rules are meant to be broken so try to go past them if you are going to be successful. Breaking the law is, well, against the law and isn't something you should be doing. Be great and become successful.
Pain is temporary, quitting lasts forever
There are two different types of defeat. You can either lose and give up or you can lose and keep on pushing forward. There have been many times that I've written here on SEOclerks and I talk about how you need to learn from your mistakes and not let them defeat you.
If you lose, keep on pushing forward because you don't know how long it will be until you'll be successful. Sure, it could take 3 months or 3 years before you make any money doing what you love. But it will be a great day when you can tell your boss that you're done working for him/her after 2 weeks lol.
If you lose and then quit, that will stick with you forever. You can't wipe this clean from your conscience, it will stick with you forever. Quitting because you give up is worse than being defeated, you're giving up on your goals, aspirations, and dreams. Never quit, never give up, always be striving to succeed and get to the point where you want to be when it comes to working online. You can be successful
People will always tell you "NO" and you will need to ignore them. When I started off, I couldn't afford a website design so a friend set up something for me and told me "I'll do this for you, but I don't think you're going to make more than $400 a year with it". I proved him so wrong and over the years he was always telling me that I couldn't do something. It's probably no surprise that I don't talk to this guy anymore, I had to cut him out because he was always negative and telling me "NO". Fast forward almost 13 years and I run an online marketing company here in Chicago and have plenty of happy clients paying me each month for something they can't hold in their hands, increased rankings and more leads
