I read a really interesting blog yesterday from Frank Kern, and I think I may have something I’m going to call magic bullet syndrome.
The reason I feel this way is that although I’ve spend thousands on IM products I’m still constantly looking at buying the new shiny systems rather than going back and focussing on my existing sites and creating new products.
Yes, amazing as this sounds if I don’t work on my own business it curls up and dies in the wilderness of cyberspace!
Making Money is Like Trying To Loose Weight
I go to the gym 3 times a week yet because I’m eating more than I should my weight is just staying the same! Sure somedays I feel a little bit thinner, but then Friday comes and I stuff a takeaway in my belly and wash it down with a few beers – suddenly 2500 calories have been and gone on top of what I’ve eaten during the day…
Also to stop getting bored at the gym I buy songs for my ipod and magazines with headlines like “blast belly fat in less than 6 weeks” but I’ve yet to find any moves that leave me looking like the cover model – the only pounds I’m losing are from my wallet!
Is their a cure for magic bullet syndrome?
Yes, I need to stop fannying about and take the action I know will make me achieve my goals. I want to get out of middle class poverty and have some proper savings rather than just relying on my credit limits and the extra cash from my current products and affiliate promotions.
If I want to achieve a 4 figure launch I need to have a product – duh!
So it looks like I need to take the advice from Dr Frank, put in some effort, determination, and stick-to-it-ivness.
I’ve taken my moleskin and written out the 7 modules that will make up http://www.safelistsecrets.com so now I need to record them, get it online, and start working with safelist owners to set a launch date in November and bingo I will have a 4 figure launch
Now writing this down looks and sounds simple, but can I stop the shiny things from distracting me?
