I admit it. I'm frustrated. I'm tired of gettingemails from people who write, "I can't do what you didbecause ---." Just fill in the blank with whatever excuse you canthink of. People say they can't write as many books as I havebecause they don't have the time, or they're too old,or too young, or too married, or too single. People say they can't make their book a best-sellerlike I did because their book is different, or they'redifferent, or the timing is different. People say they can't ask celebrities forendorsements because they feel insignificant, orinsulting, or imposing. The list of excuses is endless. Here are some moreactual ones I've received: "You're more famous than me. I could never writepeople and ask for their help, as they wouldn't give methe time of day." I started asking people for help, advice, input,suggestions and direction when I was a teenager. I haveletters from FBI king J. Edgar Hoover, boxing legendJack Dempsey, and master magician John Mulholland.I was certainly unknown then. Yet people always helpedme. I've managed to connect with Evel Kneivel, DonaldTrump, Jimmy Carter, best-selling authors and more---and I did it before anyone knew my name. I simplyASKED for their help. They were kind and replied.Today I'm doing the same for anyone who writesme who sounds sincere and respectful. "You have a large network of people to ask forthings." Yes, I do. NOW. But I didn't when I first started.I developed my network by building relationships. Ireached out to people, helped them, they helped me,and trust was formed. Because I've nurtured myrelationships online for almost ten years now, a bondis set. When I announce that I want contributions fora new book, my network responds. When they wantsomething, I respond. I was able to compile all theinformation for my most recent book, "The E-Code:47 Surprising Secrets for Making Money OnlineAlmost Instantly," in less than 7 days --- allbecause I asked my network for help. "You have a big mailing list so you can sell thingsfaster." I went online with no mailing list. NONE. I didn'teven recognize the importance of having my own listuntil one day I offered my first e-class to my thentiny list and made $22,500 in one week. Then I woke up.I've been working on building my email list ever since.Anyone can do it. And while you're waiting to do it,you can always joint-venture with people who alreadyhave mailing lists. How? Just ASK. One day someperson in Norway wrote me. He wanted to know ifI would help him sell his new software. I liked hisprogram and agreed. He didn't have a list. I did. Hehad software. I liked it. I did a mailing and split theprofits with him. It was a win-win. "You are more talented as a copywriter so you cansell better than me." I learned to be a copywriter by investing time,money and effort into studying the greats and gettingout there and doing it. My first sales letters weregarbage. I still write and rewrite to make my lettersas hypnotic as I can. I wasn't born writing, reading,or even walking. I learned it all. Can't you? "I don't have anything to offer free to get peopleto buy what I am selling." There are a million things for free online. You canfind thousands---thousands!---of free e-books online.Just grab a few and offer them as your incentives toget people to buy your product or service. Anyone cando this. Just look around online. The fruit is therefor the picking. I've seen people take classics ofliterature---now in the public domain and available ase-books---and offer them as incentives for prospects tobuy their product. It works. How do you find them?SEARCH. "I can't teach an e-class like you because I haveno credentials." Your credentials are you. They are your lifeexperiences more than anything else. Few today careabout whether you have a degree or any othercredential. They care if you can deliver on whateveryou promise. My lifemate, Nerissa, is about to teachan online video editing class. Anything you can teachoff-line can be taught on-line. With video, audio,graphics, text, and chat rooms, you can have avirtual classroom on ANYTHING you canimagine. Why not? "I can't make money selling my stuff on theInternet." Look around. The Internet is so big and vast andeven incomprehensible that truly anything can be soldonline. I've seen people sell tumble weeds and buggywhips, greeting cards and computer generated art.Anything sold off-line can be sold on-line. Go look atEbay. People sell cars, used clothes, dirt and evensnow there. I once sold an "Elvis Mermaid" at Ebay.(You can see a picture of it at www.mrfire.com) Arethere really any limits to what can be sold online? "I missed the right time to sell my idea." Really? Just look at the title of one of my books:"There's A Customer Born Every Minute." A new crowd ofprospects appears every single day. You can sellvirtually anything at virtually any time if you thinkof what people want and cater to them. Sometimes youhave to think of other uses for the same product, orother audiences than what you originally had in mind.But the best time to sell what you have is now. Whatare you waiting for? "You live in America and I live in Mexico andselling doesn't work here." Give me a break. Friends of mine always go toMexico (and other countries said to be behind us)and they come home with truck loads of things theybought. Besides that, with the Internet, where you liveis almost meaningless. Take your product and go online.Then you're not selling to your poor neighbors, but tothe entire planet. Think BIG. The list goes on and on. To me, excuses are the #1 thing people do wrong -- online and off. While all of these excuses seem legitto the person saying them, they are virtually allhogwash. Excuses are beliefs. If you buy into them, you'restuck. If you believe instead that there's always a wayaround whatever the excuse is, then you'll moveforward. My philosophy is, "There is ALWAYS a way." So let me try to help you here. First, what are your excuses? When I began this article by asking the question,"I can't do what you did because ---", what did yousay? How did you complete the sentence? Thoseare some of your excuses. Second, ask yourself if there's any way on earth toget around your excuses. In other words, are theexcuses you stated real or imagined? Have you tried toget past any of them? Has anyone else, ever, gottenpast the same excuses? Finally, what would you do if you had no excuses? Whatever your answer, get out there and JUST DO IT. Leave your excuses behind and your prosperity willbegin to come to you. Leave your excuses behind and you can achievesuccess, too. Leave your excuses behind and your life will beginto soar. If you don't act now, why not? Whatever your answer, THAT'S an excuse. Are you going to let it stop you? Article Tags: Thing People, Excuses Behind
