    Having a vision for what you want is not enough! ....?Vision without execution is hallucination? Thomas Edison

    Seriously, how many times a day are you reading a thread and someone says "take action."

    I see the "take action" phrase mentioned quite often yet so many newbs fail to do it.

    To take action in IM you sort of got to have a gambler's mentality.

    Like placing a bet in the hope you will win. You may need to invest a little capital with the hope of getting some returns.

    Trouble is some people do not like to gamble!

    The thing I see all the time is people putting "Now scale it and make more ;)". No shit sherlock, thanks for that valuable nugget. That said, there is absolute gold on here. I think taking action is the only way to get into the mindset so you come up with your own ideas. Consistently take action and you will learn to make money.

    I personally can speak out of my own growing history, that the older I became, the more I was taking action.

    But the big hammer came, when I was really at the ground with almost nothing.

    Now a couple of years later, it turned out that I was just taking a swing at that moment, if you understand ;)

    It's more a lack of disciplin I would say, or described in other words, as an non-existent, deep desire for ca$h.

    Newbies look for the get rich quick vs. if you just take action and put in the work then the money will come. It will be slow at first but they can scale up to what is sufficient for them.

    I remember when I first came to this site man... i thought I was gonna make $100 a day in like 2 weeks and quit my job.... I daydreamed for hours but I never took action... but as soon as I did money rolled in. Then I would get lazy not taking it serious then lose the little money I was making. But now im learning THIS ISNT A HOBBY u gotta bust your ass and it takes months to been an empure but guess WHAT? YOUR IN CONTROL OF YOUR INCOME INSTEAD OF SOME STUPID 9 TO 5!

    I love IM! AND I LOVE BHHHHWWWWWW if It was a girl i would marry bhw!

    I think what you are all saying is spot on. I am a noob and as such I am primarily learning. For now I am not expecting to earn any money from IM, simply trying to learn the ropes and stay within my time/money constraints. I think my biggest worry right now is making some stupid mistake and being banned from a good network.

    From a business standpoint I think that when people say "scale it up" they are being naive. Not all ideas in business scale well. Are people being truly honest with what their time is worth? I have seen very little here about true efficiency. People say what they are making, $100 a day, whatever, but what are they putting in to make that revenue?

    At the moment I am really enjoying learning new skills. I look forward to this one day being my primary source of income. Good luck to all of you too!

    I remember Eben Pagan once said that he did a poll
    of the most successful salesmen and marketers in
    the world, and he asked them what they felt was
    the biggest contributing factor to their success.

    Their answer can be summed up in two words:

    Immediate Implementation.

    So, once you see or hear about a new, potentially
    profitable idea, DON'T SIT ON IT. Don't ponder it.
    Get out there and put it into action. It doesn't
    have to be perfect, but I can tell you this much:
    It isn't going to make you a dime while it is
    sitting on your desktop.

    The famous Beatle, John Lennon once said: "If you
    listen VERY CLOSELY to the tracks of the Beatles
    recordings, you will hear all kinds of little mistakes
    and "flubs" all over the place. But the main thing
    was that the essence of the song was still there.
    We didn't care about those little mistakes. We
    just wanted to get those recordings out there
    into the record shops as quicly as possible and
    move on to the next one."

    What that means is:

    Don't get stuck in perfectionism. Instead, get the damned
    product or campaign out there! You can fix it or tweak
    it later. Don't get stuck in "research mode".

    START "SHIPPING" TODAY! :)
