“Do It!” This was the advice from Jim Kukral at Affiliate Summit East 2009. That is sage advice for sure. How many times have we all had a good idea only to come up with a dozen reasons why we shouldn’t do it? Or worse, we just let the idea fall to the floor without any action behind it. We are either secretly afraid of success or openly afraid of rejection and failure.
That’s why Toff and I are headed to Affiliate Summit West in just a few days. We’ve learned to overcome the impulse to self sabotage. After years of asking permission from bosses and being afraid to engage our ideas, we are finally living out life the way we want to.
On Sunday we’ll be flying out to Las Vegas to spend three wonderful days surrounded by enthusiastic people who are energized and passionate about what they do. We’ll get to meet interesting people, make new contacts, learn new things, and see the sites and lights of Las Vegas. By Sunday afternoon we’ll have gone indoor skydiving and we’ll be hip deep in the rush and experience of Affiliate Summit.
All this is possible because we ultimately made committed decisions to build our Internet business, no matter what it took. It’s that point of real decision, backed by definite action that is the breaking point between wishing and achieving. All the opportunities are already available to anyone who decides to do it.
And, because we are totally mobile, we can run our business from anywhere. With a laptop, a cell phone, and an Internet connection, we can be just as connected in Las Vegas as we are in our own home offices. In fact, my experience has been that being at industry events makes me more productive because I’m inspired by the people who surround me and there are lots of opportunity to create fresh content.
In the podcast, we share why we’re going to Affiliate Summit and what we plan to do when we get there.
Listen to this episode and ask yourself, ” Is there an event that I should be attending?” If you’ve been sitting on idea, now is a good time to change that. It’s never too late to pursue an idea.
