Remember the movie “Catch Me If You Can?”
Before Frank Abagnale, Jr. had even celebrated his 19th birthday, he had successfully impersonated a doctor, a legal prosecutor, and a Pam Am pilot and bilked millions of dollars from the unsuspecting.
Now life had been tough for the young Abagnale. His family had endured so much. So to encourage the younger Frank to not let life’s difficulties get him down, Frank senior told his son the story of two little mice.
Despite his family’s problems, or perhaps because of them, it wasn’t hard for young Frank to decide which little mouse he would be. And to be an impersonator was what he chose.
Now even though I wouldn’t recommend you attempt anything that will put you on the FBI’s most wanted list, I will tell you this. If it’s internet marketing that you’re interested in…
You, too, need to learn to deal with and over-come obstacles. And one of the easiest ways to over-come obstacles is to reach out for help. There’s plenty available for you!
Get yourself over to one of the internet marketing forums such as the Warrior Forum. Read the forum rules, introduce yourself, tell people what you need help with. There’s a wealth of free information for those just getting their feet wet as well as for those that have been in the game longer.
Internet marketers by and large are a very helpful group of people. Don’t be afraid to reach out!
Have a technical challenge? Simply go to youtube and put your keywords into the search bar.
Get involved with a group of internet marketers that you can relate to. After you’ve read a few posts on the forums, you’ll get a good idea about whom you’ll be able to connect with.
Or if you sign up for an internet marketing course, there may be a forum you can join. One course I know of even assigns accountability partners.
And don’t forget Google. After all, where would we be without him.
It’s all good, because…
Once you find you can deal with challenges and over-come them, you’ll begin to trust your instincts more. After all, over-coming obstacles is a skill no different than any other. No different in that it takes time, practice, and a few headaches to get from where you are to where you want to be. And know that…
It continues to get better, because…
Once you start moving forward and see your efforts changing things for the better, other aspects of your business should start to improve for you as well. Why? Because you’re now more energized and inspired to move forward because of the success you’re starting to see. Success plays off of success!
So when your challenges feel too challenging, your obstacles seem insurmountable, and you feel like throwing in the towel, ask yourself,
Which little mouse are you?
The little mouse that churned that cream into butter. Or…
The little mouse that drowned.
You bet on your success when you decided to get into internet marketing. Don’t lose the bet because you gave up too soon!
