'I got the cry-baby "you're trying to take my lunch money you heathen" pablum recently. The antedote? How To Stop Blaming Others: The Anti-Posterior Technique'
I could feel the whiny, tire-kicking, excuse-making ‘I-want-40K-by-next-week-done-everything-for-me’ attitude a mile away…
This lady really had it in for me too. ‘Gertrude’ we’ll call her (to protect the complaining)…and she took one hell of an exception that she was on my email list and that I dare send her an offer trying to sell her something. *gasp*
"All I get are these emails from you telling me I should buy this and buy that! It’s always something EVERY DAY! You’re just a 2 bit car salesman trying to take my money! Well I’m not falling for it and I’m reporting you Mr. Holland!!"
2-bit car salesman?
And reporting me to WHO? The email gestapo? CAN Spam? (what IS that anyway??)
Funny thing tho. She stayed on my list even though she evidently hated what I was sending her. Maybe she stayed because of my rugged good looks...
The Blame Game Genius in You Houses Your Own Insecurity...
Usually I dismiss this drivel. But on this day I felt compelled to respond…
"‘Gertrude’ (again protecting the name in case of witness protection), have you actually TRIED any of the products or my training that I promote and endorse?"
I’ve been in the online publishing/blogging business for 20 years, and here’s the bottom line: Most of the IM stuff out there being sold these days teaching you how to so the same is actually pretty good (yes, there are exceptions like anything in life). Yet, you hear all the doomsdayers spout how most products are crap.
It ain’t the products. It’s the attitudes my friends.
The problem is people bitch, complain, throw BLAME and never implement what they buy. And why do we put the blame on others when something or some course ‘doesn’t work’? Because it gives us an out. We find that scapegoat that makes us feel better…comforted and it validates our decision not to act.
Guess what? You think this kinda' thing only happens in the world of 'make money online' ? A good percentage of peoples' attitudes in today's world just downright sucks ass. It's these same people who look to blame anything but themselves.
It somehow makes them feel better because 'well...it wasn't their fault'.
I don't know about you, but that never made me feel better.
It's ALWAYS YOUR FAULT.
And back to the products: If you're unlucky enough to get taken by a shamsman (or woman)...then guess what? You've been in this business as long as me and it is bound to happen from time to time. As they say in Jersey..."poop occurs" (PG version).
When You Learn How to Stop Blaming Others a Funny Thing Tends to Happen...
If people like Miss G spent less time complaining and more time taking ownership of her own shortcomings and looking in the mirror then the world would be a better, more productive place with less whining.
When that happens an interesting thing occurs: You realize that it's UP TO YOU to fix/improve/do whatever IT is to move your life forward...and that it's absolutely no one else's fault...
...but your own.
Speaking of doing, that's what tends to happen in my Email Insiders Group. You get the help you need to start making sales.
That would be money.
Funny...because some people can't even be bothered to get help when info is free yet they're really good at whining about the world. That's ok...my emails and blogposts weed out the boneheads anyway...
The cost? Like I said...NADA. But who knows...that may change.
Might want to get in now.
Go find the form on one of my pages or...*gasp*...send me an email and ask for help.
I know...novel concept actually getting off your posterior and actually doing something (as my Uncle used to say).
