How Do People Succeed on the Internet
I am looking for stories of success and failures. What is your story and can you talk about it? I am very interested. Why have some of the greatest individuals in history failed more times at something then they have succeeded? There are so many examples we would never be able to list them all. Here are but a few.
Atari Said What!
“So we went to Atari and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got this amazing thing, even built it with some of your parts. What do you think about funding
us? Or we’ll just give it to you. We just want to it to get made. Pay our salary, we’ll come work for you.’ And they said, ‘No.’
So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, ‘Hey, we don’t need you. You haven’t even got through college yet.'”
~ Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs on attempts to get Atari and HP interested in Steve Wozniak’s personal computer. Or course you know the rest of the story.
Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he succeeded and Albert Einstein did not speak until he was 4-years-old and or read until he was 7. His parents thought he was “sub-normal,” and one of his teachers described him as “mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in foolish dreams.” He was expelled from school and was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School. He did eventually learn to speak and read. Even to do a little math.
These are three of the most prolific individuals in history and they all refused failure. Because of their refusal to accept failure they helped society to be what it is today. Because of them we have the theory of relativity. The cars we drive everyday. That apple computer you are working on right now.
Your Success’ and Failures
What are your success’ and failures? Have you been trying to build a business on line for years and are continuing to fail? I am looking for these stories. I am building a data base of stories from people just like you. I know it is difficult to build a business online. I tried for years until I found the right formula for me.
- Tell me how long you have tried to build a business online
- What type of online business do you have?
- Do you do this alone?
- How much money have you made or lost?
- How many different attempts have you made?
- Do you work alone, or do you have a partner?
- Where in the world do you work from?
- Why do you think you failed?
- If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?
- Etc. Whatever else you think is pertinent to your business.
Please leave a comment telling me your story. I will be putting all this information together and hopefully I will get a better understanding why people succeed on the internet and why they fail. I will be publishing this information and make it available to any one that has given me their stories.
If you refuse to fail there is nothing you can’t accomplish. You need to look failure straight in the face and say “Get the heck out of my face, I’ve got things to do”, you will succeed in your endeavors. Do you have the fortitude to succeed? Do you have the knowledge? Do you have the commitment? Well do you?
Do you know what your future is? Do you know the answer to this riddle we hear when we are kids. “What is always in front of you but you can never see? Your future. Good luck with success. Just remember “Time is not short, only life is.”
