In business as well as in life, shortcuts do not amount to what you expect them to be.
I love writing, I wouldn’t want to do anything different, but I also treat it like a business and being a business, I admit a small one, you will get times were people steal from you, double cross you, and lie to you.
That’s part of the game.
It’s not a part that many people talk about. It’s not a part of the game that you hear Tony Robbins or any other motivational speaker approach, but it exists and it is very real. I can see your eyes rolling now as you say, that’s life Dom, deal with it.
And you’re right.
But it doesn’t make me or anyone else that has been taken advantage of feel any better. But there are lessons to be learnt in every obstacle. There are things to be learnt, and things that can be taken away from any negative experience in business.
Now regards to what happened to me, I wanted a quick fix to getting a lot of sales. I had heard wonderful things about a certain person’s service and I jumped at it with both feet, but as my grandmother always says, if it’s too good to be true, it normally is.
I should have taken a step back, spoken to some people who had used the service, and gotten a better feel of what I was getting myself into.
So I paid the price.
One thing above all else that I believe, in is that 99.99% of anything that happens in business or life is your fault.
It is as simple as that. I will learn from this mistake grow from it and move on. The only words of warning I can give you, reading this right now, is to take your time when parting with your cash, on promises that seem too good to be true.
Greed tends to place blinders on us all when we can earn something of monetary value.
But then again, we all know that, we just rush to quickly after the carrot before looking what its attached to.
Until next time
