Let’s face it. As Internet Marketers we just want to hit home runs each and every time!
We want to be like Babe Ruth! Yeah!
But do we really? Did you know that Babe Ruth struck out most of the time and only had a small percentage of this times up to bat end up as home runs?
Could you deal with that kind of hit and miss success? Well, if you want to be super successful, you had better get used to that!
You see, if you expect to do a thing and be super successful then you are either delusional or very, very luck. Either way, you don’t want to be there.
But Babe knew what success really was. You keep trying and every once in a while you do hit a home run!
Now, if you are more smart then lucky, you will try hard to orient your efforts on batting another home run. You will continue to hone you skills towards this type of success.
How Does That Work For Me?
Now, you might be thinking, ‘Ok Frank, I agree, but how does that work for me?’
Good question. You need to just get up to bat. In other words, TRY.
You see, if you are looking for guarantees, then you will find yourself not trying. If Babe looked for a guarantee that he was going to get a home run, I’m sure you wouldn’t have know the name Babe Ruth and he would have done something else – other then baseball.
So, the first step to trying is taking an accountance of what you know, what you’ve tried and where you’ve already succeeded.
Orient your efforts in the areas of success, but continue to try other avenues too. You just don’t know what you could be missing that you haven’t tried.
I remember getting excited when I earned more then $1 on Google Adsense in a day and now, I work less and earn easily a hundred times that each and every day!
Now, I’m not saying Google Adsense is a waste of time. What I am saying is there are other avenues to earn money online. Today a nice part of my daily income is earnings with Google.
You need to learn and investigate these other ideas too. You may never know what is going to really click. Believe it or not, in this game, one very good home run can be enough!
Remember you are marketing to 100’s of millions of people! Even if you market to only 1 million people and 1% love your product so much that they buy, and your net profit is $20 per sale, you’ve made $200,000!
Think about it! It’s vitally important that you realize this fact. You are playing in a different ball park to your father or father’s father. Your market is not the village, or even city you live in. It’s the entire globe!
To conclude, Babe Ruth got it right. Step up to bat many times and every once in a while, he hit a home run. With limited success, he was still a super star of baseball!
