Don’t give up before you get started!

I just got done watching a video from fellow Internet
Marketer T.C. Bradley, called “The 9 Mile miracle run”
Now I’m not sending this to promote his site or product but
the message he shares this past Easter weekend.
You can see his video here:
The 9 Mile miracle run
Listen closely to his message.

Now please bare with me. I will be writing about my
experience in the Stand-up Comedy niche, but the message
pertains to anything you do, including Internet Marketing.

After a recent wonderful weekend in Berlin and watching
one of our “Comedians Anonymous” team members; Christian
Schiffer, perform for the first time in “Quatsch ComedyClub“,
(Germany’s largest and oldest Comedy club) and taking in the
Audrey Hepburn Expo and enjoying the first real spring
weather, I realized I had a lot to be thankful for.

I used this inner reflection to assess where I was headed
and what I was doing to achieve my goals.
I guess I would call it a reality check.

The speed in which my friend Christian has been conquering
the comedy scene amazed me and asked myself why my career
hadn’t exploded like his.

Naturally it was easy to start listing all the advantages he
had, a good manager, supportive parents and friends, etc.,
and my disadvantages which I won’t even start to list,
because I thought of too many.

It was in this process that I realized that I had as many or
even more advantages than he did, I had just forgotten or
neglected them.

I put on our next show 3 days after returning from Berlin
and decided it was time to get my butt in gear and focus on
those advantages and get back to the basics.

Most of my lack of success came from what T.C. described in
his video about his run. Those pains after the first mile or so
that tell us we should give up or that it is to hard or not worth it.

I recognized that I had too often let those feelings get the upper
hand. I gave in and quit too soon. I believed my own pity parties.
I always found and excuse or scapegoat to blame for my lack
of success or progress.

This had to stop!

Christian inspired me because he went past the initial painful mile.
He learned, stumbled, got up and with a remarkable determination
worked very hard on progressing in his material development and
stage performances. He found that “runners second wind”.

And now he was being recognized and invited to appear on TV.
His own weekly show is consistently full and he is hosting top
notch performers and giving his audience what they love;
“Great Comedy Content”

He motivated me so I took action.

I re-studied my old notes. I wrote new material. I rehearsed.
I believed I could perform and give the audience a great show.

The results: I ended up headlining the next show I was in and
rocked the house (doing Comedy in German which is not my
native language) and harvested the largest applause of my
career.

I have now been invited to appear in one of the nations top
comedy shows and have several other invites from
English-speaking venues in neighboring countries in the
coming months… and this has always been my dream… to be
on stage and make people laugh.

My second dream was to share my knowledge and experience to
assist others who chose this path and help them avoid the
pitfalls of this career. I created the “Comedians Anonymous
comedy course.

Our course has enabled 6 newbies to start performing and appear
in the world famous “Cologne Comedy Festival” their first year on
stage and one of them even has their own TV show now.

So what does mean to you as an Internet Marketer?

Let me just recap here for you with the following 12 Steps:

1. Be thankful for what you have and count those blessings.
Developing a grateful attitude helps you cultivate the mindset for
future rewards and growth.

2. Know what your goal or reason is and stay focused on it…
Even when the pains, fears and doubts of that first mile hit you.
Realize that you might stumble along the way, just get up and keep going.

3. Believe in your miracle. You can achieve your goal if you believe in it.
Many successes are often reached long after the majority of people would have given up

4. Avoid getting stuck in your own “pity parties” when things get tough.
Don’t focus on your past failures, look at them as stepping stones and concentrate on your past successes.

6. Observe your Mentors and do what they do.
(even if they are younger than you)
You will learn from their experience, both their success and failures. This can save you valuable time.

7. Be accountable to someone (your mentor is a good start)
Being accountable keeps you on track, it helps you get real feedback as to your progress.

8. Continue to learn about your niche, new things happen every day.
Too many people stop learning after they leave school. Acquiring knowledge in the areas you want to achieve something worthwhile is an essential part of your success.

9. Organize yourself and then take action.
Nothing feels better than getting something started and finishing it. “Doing something everyday is the secret to success online. Make it a priority”

10. Take responsibility for your success.
Don’t use others or situations as your excuse. You alone are responsible for your success.

11. Share your knowledge with others and help them succeed.
True knowledge begins when you teach others to achieve your
level of success and beyond

12. Look to your past to learn from it, but don’t live in it.
Too many people get stuck in their past, either focusing on their past failures or successes without make any progress in the present. Learn from your past but live in the now and plan for your future.

I hope these insights and suggestions help you on your path, whatever it may be. Take these steps, learn them and apply them and you will see the results for yourself

Cheers, Smiles and Success,

How To Make Money Online (yes, even if you’re a newbie)

Have you noticed how difficult it is to actually get any REAL information about how to make money online?

It’s a nightmare isn’t it? You start off buying up everything you come across – all promising your overnight riches but only todisappoint you and leave you out of pocket. Well it doesn’t have to be like that as Michael Cheney is about to explain in this interview.

After receiving 1489 responses to a survey he put out to his list one big request came back from almost everyone;

“Give us something easy, step-by-step and proven to make money online that anyone can do!”

Q. Michael, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk with us today.

A. My pleasure – I know a lot of people out there want to get started making money online so it’s my job to get out and spread the word about how easy it is.

Q. So what do you see as being the main hurdles to newbies being able to make money on the internet? What is it that’s stopping them?

A. To be honest with you I think the main thing is information. There is just so much BAD information out there. Scams. Cons. Just bad information that is leading people astray and wasting their time and money. I mean you get onto the Internet and the first thing you see almost is these get-rich-quick schemes. It’s not your fault for seizing these so-called opportunities as they are presented so well. And believe me – I know there are thousands of you out there who have been taken for a ride by things like this. People on my list have been telling me this.

I was totally blown away by the responses – I got 1489 people completing the survey!

A. There some big common themes that kept coming up as I looked at the responses and all the comments. These were that people want something that is STEP BY STEP, something that is AFFORDABALE and something that takes you right FROM BEGINNING and doesn’t leave anything out. You can get really frustrated when you start investing in products that claim to make you money online only to find that leave out a massive piece of the jigsaw.

Q. So you don’t need to buy lots of different things to get started online?

My point? When I started out if there was a free way to do something – I found it! And I’m still that way now so I uncover some of these insider money-saving secrets in the videos as well.
