I thought I would share a little something I came across, hopefully something that will be inspiring when the game isn't going your way. I've been reading a lot of threads on how Gxxgle's updates or an affiliate network's bans have ruined some of your income sources, sandboxed your sites or other annoying things that are part of this business. It sucks. But I was reading a book and I came across this quote: Perhaps there is only one cardinal sin: impatience. Because of impatience we were driven out of Paradise, because of impatience we cannot return. --W.H. Auden. I've just started doing SEO. I've had some early successes and some early failures, all of both I owe so much to y'all, because both are learning experiences that will help bring me towards my goals. But building quality sites can take a long time. Making "F--- You" money can take a long time. Reading 20 page threads and trying out different things and experimenting can take a long time. And after the big G puts out their next version of Panda, Zebra or whatever other spirit animal they choose, it can take a long time to get back on the ladder and it climb back up if you're knocked off. Patience people! Patience will bring you to Paradise. Patience will keep you experimenting when nothing is working. Patience will keep your chin up when you were making 500 dollars one day and five the next. Patience will allow you to actually learn to use the latest tools instead of blowing a chunk of change and wondering why your magic bullet isn't firing. I'm not in this for the summer or the year. I'm not in it for the quick buck. I'm in this for the next 80 years. And that's why I'll come out on top. Will you?
