When It Comes to Making Money Online-Are You a Benchwarmer
– My day is filled with every type of communications from individuals. It never ceases to amaze me what I can learn from each one of them. They are the mega marketers, owners of their businesses with their online success stories and newbies in the field of internet marketing. And then I have my bench warmers.
My ‘bench warmers’ are individuals who have known about and followed the growth of the web probably since Hector was a pup, as my parent’s used to say. The ‘warmers’ have attended seminars and listened to all of the webinars possible, studied all of the materials they could get their hands on and are still sitting on the bench giving every explanation as to why they are not in the game.
Do you see yourself on the bench? Are you tired of watching from the sidelines? If you want to play, here are some ways to get off the bench and into the game.
- No more excuses.
It’s not the right time; I need more money; I have to wait for…
Most know that a certain amount of anxiety at change is normal. However, when that anxiety holds you back from moving forward towards your dream, that day may never come and you will not move.
- Sign up to be in a spirited mentoring group.
Surrounding yourself with people that think like you want to think is important. You need this type of group for the encouragement and support that you have made the right decision. You will also need to arrive at an understanding of the friends or family members who have given you the advice to stay put; save more and don’t take a chance. Are your friends and family members fearful for you and your failing at this attempt to follow your dream or is it a case where they wouldn’t do it, so you shouldn’t or are they questioning the past choices they made that did not succeed.
Although the following was written about a student, I can see so many similarities to what an individual goes through to follow their dreams. Please accept this special poem written by a friend, Mike Buscemi, entitled The Average Child…
I don’t cause teachers trouble;
My grades have been okay.
I listen in my classes.
I’m in school every day.
My teachers think I’m average;
My parents think so too.
I wish I didn’t know that, though;
There’s lots I’d like to do.
I’d like to build a rocket;
I read a book on how.
Or start a stamp collection…
But no use trying now.
’Cause, since I found I’m average,
I’m smart enough you see
To know there’s nothing special
I should expect of me.
I’m part of that majority,
That hump part of the bell,
Who spends his life unnoticed
In an average kind of hell.
- So, who are you?
Why did you start reading this article? Is it like taking a test in a magazine? Did you want to see if you were described?
If you have seen yourself, then decide what you want to do.
You have filled yourself up with all forms of information and are more knowledgeable than most people involved in internet marketing.
Are you ready to act? Or are you staying on the bench?
You can be hands on with your website, writing your own blog and/or run any campaign, (Pay Per Click or Pay Per Lead) and/or be an affiliate marketer and you will learn more doing than reading the how-to books.
If you don’t succeed for some reason, get up again, and know you have data showing that the method used didn’t work at this particular time. That’s not failure, consider it research and development.
Easy advice to give, hard to take for you to have a business.
However, to succeed in your dream, just do it! Get off the bench!
