One of my favorite songs from the 80’s is from the movie “Rocky 4” called “No Easy Way Out” by Robert Tepper.
We use to play this song in the cover band I was in and I got to sing it. What a rush that was.
I know… I know… you’re asking me what this has to do with marketing… well…everything. (and it’s sounds a lot more fun than saying “there’s no free lunch in this biz..doesn’t it -:))
As corny as it sounds, there literally is no easy way out of building a good living online. It still is all about hard work , determination, persistence, and discipline and it always will be. There is no short cut.
That being said, the sooner you quit buying all the latest gimmicks to try to get rich quick, and spend time establishing a solid routing and daily structure the faster you will start to see results from your hard work.
This is not to say that you should quit learning new things every day, this is about finding something that works, that is proven, and sticking with it.
Just the mere fact that you stick with it puts you miles ahead of the next person… because they aren’t going to stick with it.
I lot of people start to earn a decent living online “by default”.
What I mean by that is after the put in so much time the ball starts to roll in there direction and success begins to happen “by default”. They outlasted there competition and start to get more traffic, more sales, more money, and more momentum.
Success by default: sounds easy…. but it is not. But it is real and can be for you too.
So the next time you start to rock out to “No Easy Way Out” remember “there is no easy way out…. there is no shortcut home” and know that you will start to succeed by default if you just keep on plugging away at it.
