One thing I’ve learned over the years is that failure is going to happen. No matter how smart you are, no matter how much of a business badass you are, you will fail at some point. This may or may not be as a direct result of your own actions.
Affiliate marketers who are successful know this all too well. Just ask Tyler Cruz if you need proof. Hitting your mark will come and go. But when you fail, should you really give up?
Of course not. That’s stupid.
So what should you do when your ad campaign falls on it’s face? What about when you’re contacting your list about a new MLM business opportunity but can’t get anyone to respond to your pitch?
The answer is simple: you figure out what went wrong and then you fix it.
Okay, maybe the application of this isn’t quite as simple at times, but let’s face it…if you give up, you fail.
Let me emphasize this point.
Giving up is failure. Failure sucks.
Just because something didn’t go according to your plan doesn’t mean you’ve failed. It means you’ve been given an opportunity to learn something. Perhaps it’s not the opportunity you were hoping for. Well, that’s how it goes. You hit a bump, so you either learn and become better or you give up and become a failure.
Which would you rather be: more educated or a loser?
The choice is up to you.
