Hello and welcome to my blog. I’d like to chart my journey through the minefield of Internet Marketing. It is always safer to follow in the footsteps of others to avoid risk and injury.
So why have I called my blog, “Massive Success is the Sweetest Revenge.” Does it sound negative? Let me explain something about motivation.
There are only two basic ways of achieving your goals; either through excitement or anger. Most gurus talk about dream building or goal setting. This makes you so excited that you leap out of bed at 4am and commence creating your best selling Internet product. Hmm, I love mornings but I wish they would occur later in the day….
I am British so I never get excited about anything. In fact I am the case study for the boring old fart. That does not mean that I am devoid of feelings. So I decided to get angry (mad).
I worked 12 hour days to build my IT career over many years. I am married to the same beautiful woman for 40+ years. We have two wonderful drug-free children who are a credit to their communities. I was a one-time school governor and leading light at our local Chamber of Commerce. Then in a flash of light from the great accountant in the sky, my career was gone, the mini-computer company that I worked for was gone. Indeed the entire UK IT industry was gone. I was very good at what I did. The problem is, it was the only thing I did. I struggled to transfer into another career in mid-life.
Shelf-stacking or serving carpet burgers doesn’t hack it I’m afraid. My wife was patiently waiting for me to deliver on the promises I made to her all those years ago.
I decided to get angry with my situation.
I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. And so we return to the title, Massive Success is the Sweetest Revenge. What could be more fitting than to respond to a life tragedy by arising like a phoenix from the ashes? No need to turn a drama into a crisis. Just start again!
Welcome to everyone who can empathise with my story. I hope you enjoy and benefit from this blog and will forgive me the odd ‘grumpy old man’ lapses here and there.
