Why Most People Find Success Taking The Hard Route

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted on Dec 30, 2016

What if all you knew about dreams and lifestyle were wrong?

What if what you were sold on TV and radio programs was a lie?

And what if everything society told you about success was pure unadulterated garbage…
This is exactly what I thought to myself on graduation day…

I couldn’t understand why all my peers and friends were so excited…
Didn’t they realize that now was the start to the hardest part of their lives?

I mean come on, how could you not see through the lie that we were being trained in college to work a full time job and be a mind slave…

To a corporation filled with other mindless 9 – 5 zombies?
Not only that, but we’d just traded 4 years of fun and what we thought was freedom for a “career” where we’d be forced to work a job that we hated so we could in turn…

Pay for those student loans?
I bring this up because this was real life, and fortunately for me I knew exactly what I was going to do as a college graduate – and that was go full time with my marketing company and beverage company which is launching in 2016.

So now that we’ve cleared the table to bust through some lies we’ve been told, all I ask is to digest this info platter with an open mind.

The Ugly Truth About Success
*******************************************

Most people believe success to be this easy simple little thing that you write on your wall, close your eyes, visualize real hard while you have meditation music or Tony Robbins in the background…
Brah…

If you don’t stop that foolishness…
Here’s the real deal about success.

It requires you sacrificing and taking massive action as if you’re on a mission where the only thing behind you is life or death.
For those of you who are completely dependent on yourself and your companies for your income, you know the feeling.
Going to bed each night thinking about how you’ll cover the next fee, or the upcoming payroll, or about the lawyers who are asking for 5 figures for the 15 hours they put in this month and so on…

I say this from experience as our beverage companies is facing a bill in the 5 figure plus range right now and we haven’t even launched yet.
Or the fact that each day you wake up, you never know what to expect in regards to sales…
Yeah you can predict to have a 4 or 5 figure day based on who said what yesterday, or the fact that you’re spending 3 – 4 figures per day on advertising…

But there is no sure fire guarantee that things will pan out the way you see them in your mind.
When my partners and I were first starting to get funding for our company we had 1 investor flip our company upside down and back up again just so he’d put money in.

It took months, long painful and annoying ass meetings, not to mention hours and hours upon hours of conference calls with random potential investors from all over the US, India, Asia, Africa, and Canada…
But fast forward months later and we were able to get off the ground with more than $300K+ in investment dollars…
So if you think success is going to be easy, let me just keep it 300 (three hunnit) with you…

IT’S NOT…
BUT…
It will be super worth it at the end.
So don’t be discouraged, just be prepared to fight and give everything you got in order to make your vision and ideal lifestyle real.

Why You Can Make Your Dreams Real Now More Than Ever
*******************************************
So despite our hard journey just to get to this point, there is always so much more…
Now being that we’d raised money to get this beverage produced, and soon launched…

I knew I needed a way to support myself while building up the big baby on the side (Banana Milk)
So I started doing a bunch of consulting and just helping local independent business owners, authors, and artists with their businesses and marketing…

After getting tired of that I decided to try my foot in creating products online…
Although this wasn’t the easiest thing I’d ever done, it sure proved to be the most profitable in regards to ROI and cost for production.
Once I discovered the power of launching products and did my first 5 figure launch I started to have people approaching me asking how to do what I did…

So in no time shot I started coaching other people on how to do what I do…
While cranking out 4 and 5 figure months from product sales and coaching I realized something…
I realized that I had the power to succeed at any online and marketing business model with just a few weeks of hard focused effort.

This realization brought me to this very fact…
If you can put in the time, energy, effort, and the courage – then you can create a full time income and enough freedom from your online business to make your dreams a reality.

Want to put a down payment on a new car?

Want to take a vacation?

Want to quit your job?

Want to have more flexibility with your schedule?

All you have to do is choose 1 system, really dig into it and stick with it.

I can’t recommend a specific system to you, because we all tick differently – but what I can say is that you only NEED 1 system to make your dreams real.

If you’re just starting out – my advice is to pick a niche, build a landing page, find an affiliate offer to put behind that landing page, send traffic to that landing page, capture emails and send follow up email messages promoting different offers, products and webinars…

That’s it!
It’s so simple and if you do your research on this simple business model, and more importantly … you STICK TO IT.
Then you’ll be able to produce enough income over time to do whatever you want… within reason of course ;-).

Success Is Never A Straight Line
*******************************************

I remember when they told me that all I had to do was pay $499 and I could drive a Lamborghini too…
Well long story short…
8 months later, 2 sponsored team members, 0 of them made enough sales to qualify, meaning although I made more than 10 sales – I would get paid $0 in commissions…
8 freaking months, no income, no money, not a dime from this MLM, nothing to show but the intangible business skills and damaged relationships from friends and family members…

“At least I picked up some good business skills.” I would think to myself when anybody asked me was I still doing the phone business thingy…
That business taught me how to keep showing up every single day, even if I wasn’t succeeding – remain persistent and patient.

Unfortunately though, most of us never learn this lesson during the hard times and lean times where the cash flow isn’t fast enough, and the bills and pressures of life are faster…
After quitting that business I dedicated all my time to internet marketing…

And while I was making decent enough money to live at the time, I wasn’t making the life altering income until I started to focus on building an email list…
So I started to buy solo ad after solo ad after solo ad until I’d spent thousands of dollars, with 0 profits to look back at…

I kept doing my eBay hustles which kept money flowing, but I knew there had to be a better way to build a list.
Then I partnered with a well known Guru to tap into the dark side of the internet universe…
After building super massive spam style lists into the tens and hundreds of thousands – I knew I had to do something else that would give me what I was looking for…

And yes I dipped my toes into the dark side of this pretty and rainbow filled internet world, what a ride.
Next thing I discovered that I could launch my own products, and then sell my own high priced services and programs…

That was when it all changed and I found my personal path to making my dreams a reality with internet marketing.
We’re all different – and everyone gravitates to something unique to them.
What’s important is to find that something for you, or that system that makes you feel good and allows you…
To make the money you wanna make, when you wanna make it.

*******************************************
What Does All This Mean…
*******************************************

Success is defined the way you want to define it.
What’s smart is to make it easy for yourself to succeed and reach your dreams.
Some people define success as having 3 houses, 10 cars, making over $10,00,000 per year, and living a super affluent lifestyle…

And if they aren’t accomplishing that – then they are a failure in their minds…
For some people – hey waking up in the morning makes them a success…
And as long as they wake up, they are successful.
Pretty easy to be successful for the 2nd guy right?

So what you have to do before looking to take your life business and income to the next level is first sit down and define what does success mean for you.
Once you do, I highly recommend you make it easy for yourself to succeed.
Don’t be like me and spend years chasing after the silver bullet.

Pick yourself a system for making money online, or as an entrepreneur – and just flat out stick to it.
No other path in life will lead you to your dreams, than committing to them 100% no matter what happens.
Now go kick some ass today, take some names, and I’ll meet you somewhere during my travels around the world.

Peace
Your fearless leader,
Michael “Overdeliver” Baptiste

P.S. Reaching the income levels you desire, and living the life you dream about doesn’t have to be hard. In fact it’s easy, when you make it easy for yourself. I have a business partner who’s doing 6 figures a week and each time we talk – he always tells me “easy peasy man.”
Every challenge and obstacle in front of your path to success… remind yourself of these simple words… EASY PEASY MAN.

P.P.S. I believe in change, I believe in dreams, I believe chasing after what you want until you get it. But I don’t believe anything in life will come to you without effort. Well at least the good things in life.
I also believe with the right system, and the right amount of effort that you could make anything you want a reality. If you need a system re-read this info-platter because I definitely gave you the same thing that you’ll find in most fluffed up rehashed online courses for $97 or $197.

Believe in yourself most importantly, and stick to the fight for your dream lifestyle.
PEACE
