The Ugly Truth Of Internet Marketing
It is never wise to seek or wish for another’s misfortune. If malice or envy were tangible and had a shape, it would be the shape of a boomerang. ~Charley Reese
Most of the time internet marketers are supportive and generally kind to one another. Once in a while as in all walks of life there comes along the person who because of envy or jealousy is not so nice. Often these people are not happy in life. Coming from a nursing back ground I understand these individuals mind set and can best be understood by Abraham Maslow who had a hierarchy of needs that must be met for people to be happy. One of the basic needs is safety, and when people are without jobs and economic security they often act out.
What is sad is that these folks do not understand the basics about the internet. If you do not like some ones business and it is not a good fit for you just keep moving. If you try out a business and it doesn’t work for you. Just keep walking. What I see happening often lately is bashing of others business and this is poor business in internet marketing or in brick and mortar business. Talking bad about others is just bad practice in any walk of life.
While it is sad to see people who feel better by putting others down. My experience in life is that by lifting others you lift yourself. And if you cannot do that just keep going, leave the people to do what those people do. In Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy. If needs are not met people do not grow and move forward or upward as shown in the pyramid. They do not work for the betterment of others and this is what everyone should strive for.
Often times we have to leave others behind while it is often sad to do so. We do not want to get stuck and carry others baggage with us. We all have enough baggage all on our own. Life will give you some just about the time you think things are going well. So don’t pick up the stuff that belong to other people. Whatever you do don’t get sucked in. It is easy to do when you are the type that likes to help people. One day you believe you are helping and the next thing you know you’re lugging along with somebody else’s junk. When you try to let go of it, well somehow you become the bad guy. Don’t believe it you are not.
Make it a practice to just keep moving along and remember you are what you believe you are not what someone says you are. Marketing can be tough. It is tough enough without having to worry about someone else. And whatever you do never put the other guys business he believes to be a good one down. If they ask for an opinion give it. If they do not like your opinion and often times they will not, if it is different than theirs keep moving forward with whatever is working for you.
Go out and strive to reach your own self actualization “What a man can be, he must be.” This quotation forms the basis of the perceived need for self-actualization. This level of need refers to what a person’s full potential is and the realization of that potential. Maslow describes this level as the desire to accomplish everything that one can, to become the most that one can be. Individuals may perceive or focus on this need very specifically. For example, one individual may have the strong desire to become an ideal parent. In another, the desire may be expressed athletically. For others, it may be expressed in paintings, pictures, or inventions. * As previously mentioned, Maslow believed that to understand this level of need, the person must not only achieve the previous needs, but master them.
Be your own master of your dreams and aspire to achieve. With the economy in the state it is in you are going to meet many they are stuck. Do not get stuck yourself. You can succeed in you’re home based business. If you are struggling find the one’s that are doing well and ask them what they did to get there. You will find many willing to share without attempting to sell you theirs.
Have a great weekend everyone.
