Internet Marketing Fortune Cookie

It's time for another weekly Internet Business Fortune Cookie. Last night I had Kung Pao Chicken, extra spicy. It was yummy.

The Cookie Speaks The Truth

As you know, everything you need to know about running an internet business can be learned from fortune cookies. This week's cookie actually hits right at the heart of the fear that we all have when starting a business on the Internet — “Past Experience: He who never makes mistakes never did anything that's worthy.”

Of course, that fortune cookie is obviously referring to the fact that many people who are trying to make money online fail because they fail to act. As the guys over at the Internet Business Mastery Academy say, people “don't go to bat.” This reluctance to take action can be due to many things — but chief among the barriers is fear of failure.

When you first get started at anything, you are going to have some failure mixed in with your success. What you want to do is fail as quickly as possible. Take massive action, fail, correct your course, and fail again. Rinse and repeat until you are successful. There is a word for this tenacious behavior — learning.

Most of the time, the difference between actually making money online and dreaming about making money online has to do with taking action. Internet Business is not a spectator sport. If you want to win, you have to put yourself in the game.

Follow The Cookie

So, the message for you today is, take action. Skip that episode of “Private Practice” tonight and do something that will advance your business. Write a new blog post (or start a blog); start work on a new product for your niche (or identify a new niche). Just do something that will materially advance you toward your goal. Make some mistakes and learn from them. You'll be glad you did.

Planning on taking some action as a result of this post? Let me know what it is by dropping a comment. Publicly declaring your intention to make progress is a great way to hold yourself accountable.

Have a great day.
