When my mom was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia her doctor gave her a cheery little nugget of wisdom.
He said something like…
You will have pain everyday for the rest of your life.
Well, that was harsh I thought…
But he wasn’t doing it to be crass, or to be a dick.
He was doing it because to him, that was the reality of Fibromyalgia. And he said if she could internalize that now, it wouldn’t be as bad.
This doc’s philosophy goes against my overly Pollyanna-ish like nature but I get it.
This is also why I tell entrepreneurs and service pros that marketing is hard.
Copy writing is hard.
Figuring out your product, your message, and the best media for you is hard.
This is why Swipe and deploy and copying ads have a tipping point. They work and they’ll get you started but you almost never see the success of the original.
Eugene Schwartz said it best.
“Each and every formula is simply the written solution to a particular problem that occurred in the past. Change even one part of that problem, and you need an entirely different formula. That’s why memorizing theories won’t make you a scientist…or rewriting somebody else’s headlines won’t make you a copy writer.”
I could steal all Lebron’s moves and the Laker’s wouldn’t be calling me anytime soon.
Great teachers help you learn and understand foreign and complex ideas. That’s what makes them great teachers.
That is what I aspire to do.
That’s why I do what I do.
That’s how I’m wired.
But I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it’s easy. Or that if you take my course you’ll become the next David Deutsch and 10x your income in six months.
But when you KNOW it’s hard. All you have to do is little things.
Like get 1% better everyday.
The compound effect of daily improvement will make you an entrepreneurial bad-ass. It might take 6 months it may take 6 years.
But it WILL happen.
Better to put your faith in that than some mamby pamby hocus pocus course.
