We’ve been taught that as long as you work really hard, you will surely become successful.
But while working hard is great, it does not always lead you to success. In fact, you might spend a lot of time and energy, and even invest a considerable amount of money into something, only to find out it will just fail in the end.
I want to talk about this because I received a comment about it in a video I advertised on Facebook, to invite people to join my FREE video training series.
I deleted the comment because it’s not healthy and so I forgot the exact words the guy said.
But one line in the comment goes something like this, “If you want to earn 5, 6 or 7 figures, all you have to do is hustle and don’t post a non-sense video like this.”
I’ve been receiving funny comments like this and just deleted all of them as they just do negativity in my ad.
I would have replied to them in a healthy manner if I they gave some professional comments but they talked immature so I decided to just get rid of them.
But on a positive note, that comment opened my eyes to see a wrong notion a lot of people have these days.
They thought that as long as you work so hard on something and don’t give up, success will come.
Well, I can’t blame them because that’s what inspirational videos and motivational speakers have been teaching us.
But this advice led a lot of people into failure more than success, including me before.
My own failure from this wrong teaching...
A few yeas ago, I had this awesome idea and I was on fire with it because no one has ever done it here in our place.
I then asked a partner and he agreed to build it with me.
We spent months in developing the product and even invested a considerable amount of money in it.
It was so hard but we were motivated to go on because we were so excited with the outcome.
Only to find out that at the end, nobody wants to buy the product we created.
And I asked why?
The product was amazing and it will surely help our target buyers. But why did they not like to buy it?
Well, we did not have a solid plan and strategy.
We thought that as long as we work hard in creating an awesome product, we will become successful.
And that’s also the reason why a lot of people fail, even if they work really hard.
Thankfully, I didn’t stop there.
I wanted to look into what went wrong so studied how successful marketers are doing it.
I also invested into the programs of trusted mentors for me to learn how these BIG guys are crushing it.
From there, I went back and crafted products and finally became successful.
I was also able to help other business owners grow their business by proving my video marketing services.
So, the secret? You need to learn a solid strategy that is proven to work, before even working hard.
In fact, the more you learn about the strategy, the less you will have to work.
That’s because you’ll just focus on what’s important and get rid of all unnecessary things you might have been doing.
But how can you learn a solid plan that works?
Well, you can probably learn this in your own by doing trial and error, but it can take you forever plus a BIG amount of money to burn, if you follow this route.
I have to be honest with you – if you want to learn this strategy, it will NOT be cheap.
Don’t expect a $27 training to give you a complete path to follow.
I enrolled to a $2000 course and man, it’s really worth it!
But don’t worry, I’m not asking you to spend that amount of money as well.
Still, I have to emphasize the fact that you should be willing to invest into a mentor because it can save you years of trying to figure things out and wasting a lot of money into something that you are not sure to work.
In the coming days, I’m opening the doors to my signature program – Video Thrive Society.
This is a solid video marketing strategy that connects all the dots and solves all the puzzles you might have in your business.
But like I said, this is NOT a $27-ish kind of training.
In fact, my vision for this is to make it the most complete and comprehensive video marketing training and community for top level business owners.
But since I’m still beginning, I’ll open it for a very affordable price for serious marketers.
I just did a 3-part video series for it during the last 2 weeks, and you can watch those videos for FREE if you want to learn more about what’s inside…
By signing up, you will also get notified once Video Thrive Society goes live.
