If there's one thing that pushes my buttons more than just about anything it's the people who absolutely refuse to listen to what the truth is about Internet marketing and making money on the Internet. No matter how many times they hear the truth, read it or watch it on a video, for some reason they seem to think it doesn't apply to them.

What's the truth? It's this.... you have put effort into your success. There's no other way to put it. You have to work at it.

Does this mean you have to be miserable in the process? No! As a matter of fact, if you have the right attitude you can have a great time working toward success. Every day can be an adventure and something to look forward to.

Recently I conducted a survey to find out what men and women want to know about building their business using the Internet. There were a few multiple choice questions and an open ended question where they could ask me any question they wanted. Although I wouldn't be answering them directly, I would formulate my responses in reports, teleseminars and articles.

There were some incredibly good questions and then there were a few like this, "How can I make a lot of money and not have to put much effort into it?"

My answer, "You can't!"

I can guarantee you there are a few people who will read my answer and think, "I'm different. I can do it without working at it."

Good luck. While the misguided individuals who choose to believe a crock of poop continually look for the easy way out, others are making it happen.

The misguided folks are led to believe they don't have to do a darn thing but visualize what they want. When they fall short of their vision they scratch their head saying, "What happened? I thought all I needed to do was wish for what I want and it would happen."

Regardless of the industry there are those who will shine, those who are above average performers, those who deliver average performance, those who barely get by and countless men and women who give up before they realize their greatest potential.

It doesn't matter if you are a artist, singer, writer, teacher, mechanic or one who uses the Internet to build your business, you can achieve more than most by doing one simple thing - work at it...consistently.

Whatever you do avoid falling into the trap of believing the crock of poop about not having to do anything to achieve your dreams. All that does is stink up your mind.

And that's the truth!
