In this episode of the Friday Podcast, I look at why some newer Internet Marketers fail to achieve the success they are aiming for.
It’s nothing to do with the Google Slap, the Squdio slap, competition from other niches, or knowing what to do. It’s something even more insidious and could affect you more deeply that you realize.

Solving the IM Engima
The IM insider and the IM outsider
Biggest challenge to new internet marketers is not the google slap, squidoo slap, competition, or even knowing what to do.
Biggest challenge is not taking action.
The major stumbling block seems to be giving yourself permission to succeed.
“Are you merely an IM worshipper?”, or are you an IM practitioner?”
Emails go out saying “XYZ guru is such an expert, everyone should be learning from him”
Implication: he’s your guru and you are his follower or disciple.
A follower will never overcome the master.
Take steps. Move yourself up.
Instead of “following” why not focus on “doing”?
Big difference between “saying” and “doing”.
Talk is cheap.
Ideas are a dime a dozen.
Talking never earned anyone anything, unless you’re a professional speaking.
In this case, you’re an internet marketer.
And actions certainly speak louder than words.
Before you take action though,
I realize that giving yourself permission to succeed can be a major stumbling block.
Like runner Roger Bannister and running the 4 min mile.
“impossible run a mile in less than 4 minutes”
Long time psychological barrier to success.
Once you’ve broken the barrier, you can’t go back to running 4 min miles.
In the internet marketing race, have you broken your own “4 minute mile” yet?
If you’re still struggling to generate any decent internet income, what i want you to do is to start taking action. put your knowledge into practise.
It’s only once you’ve got yourself all bloody and earned you first $1,000 a week, or $1,000 a day using the techniques you’ve practised that you’ll truly be an IM insider.
You’ll also no longer be blogging about making your first $5 sale.
As you’re reflecting on all of this, also reflect on this thought.
Are you still sitting at the table of life, expecting success to be served to you on a silver platter?
Shouldn’t you be getting up and get what’s rightfully yours?
