Success is the intelligent and persistent application of knowledge, understanding, method, skill and insight that works over a period of time to reach a desired goal or aim. The reason why so many people fail in business and at networking is not because of a lack of information, training, will power, resources, intelligence or the system.
Rather than getting the right mind-set that requires increasing knowledge, gaining understanding, organizing methods or systems, acquiring skills and gaining insight, they desire to get-rich-quick with little or no real effort.
These people are the wrong people for any income opportunity beyond a 9-5, get-rich-quick-scheme, overnight millions or Internet junk programs. These aren't bad people. In fact, the vast majority are decent, honest people. They are just the wrong people for any home business enterprise that requires discipline, self growth, self development, self management and courage.
This does not mean that one or two people can't succeed with some of this stuff circulating on the Net. The odds are stacked against the vast majority. That's why the failure rate is so high. And...if anyone has any one of the above mentioned character traits, he/she won't earn any real money with any opportunity program, unless he/she is willing to grow and change. There is no such reality as something for nothing and no pies float in the sky.
