Have you ever bought into a new ‘system’ online that was touted as being THE breakthrough program that will finally get you all the money you’ll ever need and…never try it out?!?
I’ve spoken to several people over the years that have done just that and, I suspect there may be 100’s if not 1,000’s more from all over the World and from all Walks of Life.
You know what happens. You get an email because ‘supposedly’ you’re on someone’s list and they start talking about how they left their job due to the enormous income generated by this ‘new technique’ for online marketing.
You get all excited and decide to fill out the form with your name and email and BAM! You get another email with a ‘Special Link’ that’s ‘By Invitation Only’ and oh…by the way, there’s only 2 or 3 more hours left before the Sale Price goes up through the roof.
If you’re like most, you hate your job, would like to find a way to make a living while residing in Portugal or Panama or Belize; sipping a Mai Tai while checking your account to see how much money you’re raking in. Not to mention you’d also like to tell your stupid boss a thing or two before you quit your J.O.B.
So anyway, there you are sitting in front of your laptop reading this great email that must have been sent from heaven because it sounds as if it’s an answer to all your prayers plus…it’s totally ‘newbie friendly’ and only takes 15 minutes a day to run and; you buy the darn thing for the ridiculously low price of just $47. Whew…glad you got it before that price went up!
Now you own this ‘thing’ that will make you rich, solve all your problems and you’ll become the envy of all your friends when they get all the postcards you send from Ecuador or wherever…but wait! It’s Saturday. Got to cut the grass or shave your legs or go into work. Darn and you were going to get rich today, huh?
Well, no matter, you can fire up that new online money magnet when you get home…but wait! When you get home you always watch Entertainment Tonight and then NCIS is coming on. Well, no matter. Guess one more day won’t matter and anyway, tomorrow’s payday so that’s a good thing.
Then, other stuff crops up like the lunch with your girl friends from work and, there’s that hair appointment; then the car starts acting funny so you take it to be fixed which kills that day and; so on and so on and so on.
And you wonder why you can’t get out of the rut you’re in?
Are there solutions to all this? What do successful people do? How do they find the time? How do we keep distractions to a minimum?
My next post will go into more detail and give you some ways to solve these issues. Look for it in a day or two at: http://www.donaldhelps.com It will be titled: “Getting Off The Dime’
Until then, here’s a quote for you to think about: ‘You can’t fish staring at the pond.’ – D. G. Gaw
Until next time and blessings to you and yours.
