We all dream.. Some people chase the dream and some people actually realize the dream.
What is the difference? Today I am going to share with you my 3 "musts" for actually succeeding long term.
I have identified these particular differences from hundreds of people I have mentored into online incomes. This has given me some real Insight into who makes it, Who doesn't...
And what divides them.
This might be a little tough for some people. Unfortunately this industry is built on empty promises and it breeds a culture of unrealistic expectations, however, for those people who really get what I am about to say... Keep going.. You will reach success. For those who don't get it... It will unfortunately be a hard road
I am going to explain what it really takes. There is nothing to buy. Just truthful information
Stick with me and let's go through the key ingredients for success
Under each topic. I will tell you, what people that succeed do, and what people that don't succeed do.
The definition for Success in this post is.
The ability to live solely off your online income
Note, this information is not business specific. I can tell you right now that any online entrepreneur's success is never business specific.
Successful people are successful because they have these 3 principals covered
No business will ever be the main reason you succeed. YOU will always be the main reason you succeed so today we are going to focus on what YOU must do regardless of your current or future business
(For what reason or purpose)
Why are you doing what you are doing?
Your WHY is everything. Absolutely fundamental.
The major difference between people that make it and those that don't is the importance of their WHY.
We find motivation and move in two ways. Away from pain and towards pleasure. Moving away from pain is in most cases, what drives people the
furthest. Something you just can't bare to have in your life
It's easy to be comfortable.. And when you are comfortable... It can be hard to find motivation.
This is when we must move towards pleasure. The same level of motivation is required, however you will be moving towards something, . Something so great that you must have it....
You cannot live without it
Your why can obviously be a combination of pain and pleasure.
People that succeed, know their "WHY" and they know how important it is to them.
They say thing like: I am NOT prepared to work a job any more. I can't even comprehend spending the rest of my life doing it.
I must change because (insert "why") and I am prepared to work at it until "why" is achieved
Statements from those that don't make it:
I have some free time now so I might as well give it a go.
Wow, that would be really cool if I could get to where you are.
I am just looking for an extra $1000 a month.
I am going to give it a month. If it doesn't work in a month then I might try something else
The pain of working 5 days a week for the rest of my life... Was what I moved away from.
The WHY that drove me.
When I woke up in the morning, I was prepared to work, even when I was tired, even when friends wanted to catch up... It was so, so, so, important to me to NOT spend my life working... Not spend my life exchanging my time for money, that I was not only prepared to work incredibly hard above and beyond the hours of the job that I was already working... What is interesting is... I was motivated and enthusiastic to work above and beyond!
Why would I do that? Why would anyone? It's a contradiction. "It's so important to me NOT to work.. So I am going to work super hard" Lol!
There is only one reason... My WHY... To move away from the pain of working for the rest of my life and towards the pleasure of freedom.
Without that core WHY... I NEVER would have made it.. I would have quit... Just like most people do.... Whether you are moving away from pain or towards pleasure.. You MUST have a massive "WHY" that's so important to you that it pushes you past comfort.
You might be reading this thinking. Yeah, yeah, yeah.. I get it.. I need a goal, But seriously... Do NOT underestimate the importance of this. WHY is the key differential between people that make it and those that don't. I have seen it time and time again. Full stop. No exceptions.. Identify your WHY. Now that you know why you're doing what you are doing.. What's next...
(Activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result)
Work. Focus and Consistency.
But hang on Luke... "Haven't you heard about that business that does it all for you? You don't need to WORK anymore to make money online..
These days there are even businesses that will build your sales pages, manage your contacts, even follow up with them and make the sales for you! Heck...
You can even join businesses that you will make money for doing nothing! Just sit back and let the cash roll in! $$$"
Oh Dear...Okay... Now... Let's get very clear and very serious.
If you want to make a living online... Something you can actually rely upon. Don't leave it to anyone else... Or fate.... It is up to YOU to Create YOUR outcome.
The people that do work... The people that are focused and consistent... Make money over the long term. WORK is unavoidable.
When you take 100% personal responsibility for your actions. When you make the decision that your results and a direct reflection of the actions you took. Not of the business you are in.. Not of the traffic you are buying... Not of the leaders above you... Not all the other external forces that have somehow affected your results. (The excuses we are all guilty of)
When YOU make the decision that YOU and only YOU are responsible for YOUR Success or Failure. Things will change for YOU. WHY..? Because you will truly understand that excuses don't get results.
Not now.. Not ever.
You can have Money and you can have Excuses. You Can't have them Both at the same time.
This is a huge separation between people that make it and people that don't.
People who succeed, despite failure, despite the grinding work that doesn't seem to get them anywhere in the short term... Continue to persevere.
I often hear these type of comments from them:
Well, that didn't work... What's next?
How can I tweak it to make it work?
I keep looking at my system looking for a way to improve it.
I know that it's not working now, but I can see that if I keep testing and tweaking, It will eventually.
I am going to go through all the training again.
And what I love to hear.. Luke... It worked!! After all this time trying and trying...
It's actually working! Now I am going to make it better.
People that don't make it:
It's taking too long. I have heard of this other thing that takes care of all the work.
I don't want to learn/don't have time to do that so I am going to try "this" instead
Have you seen this thing that builds your webpage and everything for you?
I am not looking for more work.. I already have enough on my plate, what will make me the most money without any effort?
I tried to finish the training video or blog.. But it was too long. I don't have time for that
Remember.. This is NOT about any particular business. It NEVER is. It never will be.. Sure..
There will be one business that will take you there.. Something that will earn you the big money, but it's never about the individual business and always about you.
What are YOU doing to maximize your chance of success? What system have you personally put in place that you could then take and implement in another business?
Are you creating content? Websites, Blogging, Video, Social media, building an Email list?
This isn't some speculation of mine.... This is a very obvious separation between the people that make it and the people that don't that I have observed over the last few years.
A "case study" of hundreds of people. I am a firm believer that anyone can make mountains of money online. That's because anyone can. But NOT without these 3 principals
(The successful conveying or sharing of ideas and feelings)
Some people will have this naturally.
Others will need to work at it (Like me) but
Communication is how we spread our message
If you can't communicate effectively...
You won't get results. So what does this mean?
It means that you may need to do some personal development. I sure did.. I still am! Growth doesn't happen over night. It takes time and... WORK. I know that even now there will be people saying, well... If I use someone else's email copy or someone else's videos then why would I need to make my own? They are already experts at communication and that means that I don't need to learn. This is a common statement of people that never make it.
You CAN copy and use others content. Absolutely, follow people who are already successful... that is necessary... Particularly when getting started, however,
The people that do find long term success... Without question... Create content of their own.
This ties back to taking FULL unwavering responsibility for their business and outcome.
You see... It's easy to make excuses if you didn't make the content yourself.
"Well, I tried with the team emails, videos, etc, and I am not getting results"
The ironic part is... It's these same people that say, "I have found another company that does it all for you!" And the cycle continues... Do you see the theme? The reason people chase their tail around the internet?
Save yourself a whole lot of wasted time and money.
"Done for you" systems don't work. You must take initiative to create the content yourself.
I know this step isn't very clear... So let's sum it up
People that make it in this industry put themselves into their work at some level
They learn to communicate their message effectively. Themselves.
This does not mean you start from scratch.. Follow others and use their material as templates, however, You must at some point develop these skills.
Learn to write.. Learn to make video. Learn to speak.
A minimum of one of these skills is required. Make sure you develop your communication
skills to an effective level. If you are anything like me.. This step will take some work... but the more you do it, the better you will get... The most important thing you can do is make a start.
Start to write.. Make a Video... Read some self help books.
Study your business and the language that leaders in your business are using.
If you have found yourself in the "people that do not make it" category. Do not despair. Simply take it on board and identify areas for self improvement.
Let me close with this.... With the thousands of people I have seen flow through my teams..
The countless people I have interacted online and at seminars and the hundreds I have
personally mentored... These 3 principals are the difference between the people that succeed over the long term and those that don't.
It's NOT... The business.. .. Not the team resources.. Not a particular lead source...
Particular Lead capture page... Particular follow up email sequence...
Particular sales Webinar... Particular point in time... Particular secret that successful people hide... Particular Country of residence... Particular age... Previous job or existing skills.
It is completely random... People from all ways of life in all different businesses... It always comes down to the individual. Their WHY.
This WHY Drives them to Remain Focused, Consistent, and to WORK hard.
Through this hard work.. They work on themselves. They understand that personal
development is required and communication is one of those requirements.
We can always grow... Take responsibility for YOUR success and YOU will succeed.
As I said, there is nothing to buy... It's just the truth that I have observed over the years. Anybody can do this, including you.
To your success
You can obviously pay to have your banner made for you and... no doubt there are more efficient ways than what I am about to show you... lol... However,
This is what I do and it's 100% free :)
You will find the video instructions and the links needed to complete the process below
The power of consistency
Set up your autoresponder to automatically Remind your prospects of the key advantages of your site.
This is a great way to "drip feed" information about the value of your offer. In fact, people need to view something more than once before they will make a decision.
Use your email autoresponder to leverage your time. Creating an email list is key to your business growth and will eventually create a semi automated system,
creating a passive residual income over the long term

What exactly is a solo ad and how do they work
Here is a classic definition:
Solo Ads are an email based advertising program agreed between two marketers or organizations to reach out to a list of subscribers that are registered to either one of them for a fixed price or performance based agreement.  The marketer or organization sends an email to their subscribers on behalf of another marketer to display their offer and ads. The approach is performance driven to reach out large audience at once. Each solo ad generally includes 8 to 10 lines of text
So, to say it again simply... Someone has built a list of subscribers online. They now have an email list and "sell" the opportunity for YOU to send your email out to that list.
What this means is 2 fold. You can instantly access a list of subscribers without having a list of your own.. And also build your list in the process, setting you up for the future.
I find this a very effective way to kick start your business and something that I
still practice on a weekly basis
What option should you choose?
There are a couple of different methods to purchasing your Solo ad. You can simply pay someone to send out your swipe (ad copy) to a specific number of people, hope that your swipe is effective enough to motivate them to click on the link inside and view your Lead Capture Page (How to build an effective LCP here) or...
You can do what I recommend and only pay per click. (Pay when someone clicks on the link in your email)
It actually gives you a unique advantage in "pre qualifying" your leads before they reach your lead capture page.
Contrary to traditional marketing methods let's review the examples below
Here are the swipes
"Have you ever wanted to make money online..?

This email continues for around 2 x this length..
Most people in my niche are looking to make money online and without any real definition, many people are likely to click on the link to try and discover what it's all about..
This will do very well in that respect, however...
Building your list is one thing, but converting them into sales is another all together.
The clicks that we really want are from people that are actually interested in our business.
This is why the second swipe is far more effective.
This is a Gold business so I only want people that are interested in buying gold to click on my ad.
By being descriptive we Pre Qualify them our my business long before they even know exactly what it is. This unique ability to be honest will absolutely convert into more sales and profits for you.
I recognize this method as one of the most useful discoveries I made online and highly recommend you consider it when writing your swipes.
Who do we use and How do we find them?
There are MANY solo ad providers online. Just Google solo ad directories and you will see.
I also use Safeswaps
Finding the right one can be hard. Make sure you read their reviews, that they are up-to-date and test them before buying big. I like to start with 100-200 clicks. All going well, I will purchase more.
*Although you can be honest... Don't bore your reader. Your swipe still needs to be interesting and intriguing. The goal, after all is to have the reader, click on your link with enthusiasm to discover what is next
*Don't expect immediate success. This will take time... It's a numbers game. Build your list, continue to drive traffic to your LCP and follow up emails. As you build momentum things will happen for you. Don't be impatient or discouraged because the first 100 people on your email list didn't buy your product. It will happen
*Always reevaluate your swipe, LCP and marketing campaign. Look for ways to improve it. As you start driving traffic through solo ads, you may recognize some areas of your campaign are working better than others. Take the time to analyze this and make the necessary adjustments
Purchasing solo ads can and will boost your traffic and give you the start you are looking for. As I mentioned, I still run solo ads every week.

Let me introduce myself
I thought it was about time I shared a little about myself.
It's my goal to build life long relationships with other like minded online entrepreneurs and the first step towards that is sharing a little about who I am, where I have been and where I am headed.
Freedom was the key for me. It was my predominant driver, my motivation, the reason that I worked so hard. I knew that there was more to life than
...I am not about flashy cars and expensive suits. All I desired was the ability to choose what to do with my day.. So I got to work. Then after months and months of committing to myself and committing to online business I found it. I found that success... That freedom. It happened so fast that I hardly saw it coming,
you see... Like most people I had some self doubt... Perhaps this wouldn't work for me... Perhaps I would try and try but never find the result I was looking for. I think that's a natural feeling, whenever we take on a new project, there is always an element of
My beach across the road (Coffs Harbour Australia)
My goal was to be free by 30 and I beat that by 5 months :) My success came quite rapidly sponsoring 1000s into teams and creating multiple six figures within 18 months. It was at that point that I quit my job in Coffs Harbour, sat down and thought about what I really wanted to do. Although I had already seen much of the world, traveling is something that I truly enjoy and Canada was next on the list, so I booked my ticket
When it finally started snowing :)
For the past 12 months and ongoing into the next year I have been living here in Canada. I spent the winter up on ski resort ski patrolling which I loved. At first it was a massive learning curve, I spent a lot of time and money completing all my paramedic training so that I was ready to take on any medical situation that might arise. The training was incredibly interesting. It was something I never thought possible for me as being a full time ski patrol volunteer doesn't pay too well... lol
Always plenty to do!
Contribution. I want to help people achieve this same success. Online marketing has had such a positive impact on my own life that I really want to share it with others. It is for that reason that I have started my own online training and mentoring service and have started helping individuals that are motivated to make this work for them too.
Creating financial independence... I am not going to say it was easy... It took some work.
But when you consider the alternative... When you consider working 5 days a week for the rest of your life it becomes very clear what is the path of least resistance and where you should focus your attention.
Anyway, that's a little about me. I look forward to learning more about you with time

What makes this industry so exciting though is once you are at full speed... once you have built that momentum...
Your income becomes unstoppable.
It snowballs to an almost unmanageable point and that is a fantastic feeling... :)
Taking the time to learn the skills of online marketing is the most valuable thing I have ever done. It can be daunting sometimes to filter through all the "shinny" new "best systems" out there online but when you finally get a grasp of it, everything starts to fall intoplace.
An email autoresponder Is a great way to do this and generally backbone of any online marketing business. It allows you to communicate with thousands of people all at once in a professional and in a timely manner.
I use Aweber. I have found them to be very good.
Traffic is another HOT topic! Where do you find people that are interested in joining your business? There are millions
Driving traffic is a very important process of internet marketing. Finding good traffic can be one of the biggest challenges an internet marketer will face. Remember to always look for people in areas that they are most likely to be interested in your product. It may be easy to get sidetracked with all sorts of offers, but targeted traffic is the key.
When teaching my coaching clients to build an effective marketing campaign, I see the best results from free sources. With the correct Social media, YouTube, Blog strategies you will find Traffic will come consistently day and night
What i like about this method is, you put in the work now to set it up your system and then leads continually view your offer which, in turn, turns into income
I know this is a very simplified explanation however,
the point I am trying to get across is... If you stick with this, It will be the most profitable thing you have ever done.
It is easy to feel defeated when you don't see results from day one. We are all guilty of having high expectations, but if you just take a step back and realize you must first build momentum... That learning is all part of the process... You will be surprised how well it all comes together.
