The gist of the email was basically…
I agree with that, over the last few weeks I have got myself off lots of email list (ezines) and stopped reading certain forums, blogs and stopped listening to the crap which in some instances were so bad I can’t believe they didn’t themselves think it was crap!
I am down right fed up of it, it’s daily!
I have been trying so hard to get somewhere for a while and it’s endless pitching and freebies if I get on this list or that list and it led me nowhere, just adds to the crap I already have so where is this damn pot of gold at the end of the rainbow they so effortlessly promise?
Well… that sounds familiar to anyone who has been thorough any stages of Internet marketing, blogging, whatever, but that last line got me thinking.
Where is the pot of gold?
What exactly are you expecting it to be?
Let me ask this, what would YOUR pot of gold be? Look like?
For each of us, it will be a different picture, depending on what you want and it takes unique action to get there.
I remember mum saying to me as a kid “go take a walk next time you see a rainbow and see if you can get to the end of it.”
We know why now, but it serves a good point here too, even IF there was a pot of gold as you expected, getting to it is your problem!
I mean this in no offence to the person who sent the email, but kind of ironic they missed the very reason we say there is a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow…we say it to kids knowing the reality, you know… the fact you CAN’T get to it.
These people who you have gotten ebooks from and such don’t care if people don’t take action as long as you get their knowledge.
Funnily enough, it makes another good point, you certainly won’t get there by simply reading ebooks and ezines, blogs, forums etc…without actually acting on anything, taking steps!
So getting off them list was a good move as long as you act on what you have already learnt, if anything. (depending on the ezines!)
We have all done it, you won’t be the last.
Knowledge is good but it’s just fuel, action from that fuel is what counts, don’t waste it!
Stop looking for a pot of gold that doesn’t exist… you gotta create it!
