Just Because I Was Successful, Doesn’t Mean It Will Transfer…….

Key To Success



Just because you were successful in one domain does that mean you are going to be successful in another one?  Too many times  we get the misdirected idea that because we were successful with one business or profession, that getting into internet marketing or online marketing is going to be a breeze.

Nothing could be further from the truth.  In fact a good friend of mine, Bob Clarke, a very successful online marketer is a reproductive scientist who feels that it might actually hurt. He suggests that your ego might just get in the way of any success, especially at first.   Bob suggests that: “smarter means dropping your ego, being teachable and learning from those who’ve gone before you”.

So if you think that because you have an “advanced degree” might give you an advantage, you might just have to put that aside and learn the new process from the bottom up, just like most of the leaders have begun their success on their way to the top of the leaderboards.

I have to admit,  because I have an advanced degree I thought my abilities in one area was going to help me get there faster.  It didn’t take me long to realize that I needed to put my own ego aside and get to work just like everyone else in this amazing profession of internet marketing.  If I was going to make it in this profession, I needed to learn many new areas of interest that I had rarely been exposed to in the past.   I had to learn many of the intricacies of the computer that we more than just hitting a few keys to get you to a website.

Today,  I know my way around a computer far more than I did, but I am far from a geek or a nerd when it comes to the computer but through persistence and a tendency to be  stubborn,  I have mastered enough of the computer to be dangerous (to a certain degree).  I still have no problem asking for help in certain areas and even listen to a leader via a video tell me things that I might have to listen to a few times to actually get it.

I have left my ego at the door a long time ago and am finding this profession of online marketing an amazing profession full of grateful and thoughtful individuals who continue to amaze me as to what heights they can go to fulfill their dreams.  Through persistent consistency each and everyone can fulfill those dreams if they have the patience to continue to work at their dreams AND NEVER GIVE  UP!

Find that leader, find that program that fits into your idea of success and realize that success is not going to be overnight, but rather a journey of zigs and zags.  But eventually success will come because you had the “sticktoitofness” to stay the course, to realize that your WHY” was bigger than all the other excuses put together – even though you might have been a professional in your other life.

  1. I remember that post from Dr. Bob…it was right on target. Having a couple of advanced degrees myself (counseling and educational leadership) that are in related fields, I know how hard it is to take the ego out of the way and continue to be a student.

    Great post, John!
