…if you’ve been reading my past few emails you’ll know a lot more about me…and why I do the things I do.
Now, although I love blowing my little trumpet, what about you?
Why do you do the things you do?
What makes you sit in front of the laptop for hours at a time?
What are you trying to achieve?
Why should people go to you for help, or for entertainment?
Whose life are you trying to make better by doing what you’re doing?
And going a little darker…
What are people going to say about you at your funeral?
What would you like them to say?
Thought provoking, right?
It’s not something most people ever dig into to find out what’s under the mental hood.
It’s easier to just whizz by this email and go off to read the next bubblegum email in your inbox.
One that’s filled with zero calories and no substance.
But until you stop and think about why you’re doing what you’re doing, you’re not even a face in the crowd.
If you were, at least people could spot you in the line up. But most people online are only pretenders.
They talk about online businesses, they talk about publishing, and they talk about writing, but it’s always done from the safety of forums, or Facebook groups.
One where they’ll never have to face reality.
I can sell you a hundred products, but until you stop and go through questions, like the ones above, you’ll always have average results.
You’ll always find it easy to throw in the towel.
You’ll always question why you’re even bothering showing up.
And you’ll easily be led off course, with the sniff of a bright shiny object.
I want you to have better results that you’re getting.
If so, why?

PS – Rather I blew my little trumpet today?
