    Scott recommended the animated movie "Robots". I'd like to recommend another: "Meet The Robinsons"

    At the end, there's the best and most telling message of all, courtesy of none other than Walt Disney. Be sure you watch it with the kids. Haven't got kids? Borrow a few.

    P.S. IT is a wonderful thing to discuss and imagine and yearn for, but I know many people, including Lynn, on this thread would say two other letters are actually the key:

    DO


    If you prefer, you can put them together and get:

    DO IT


    When all is said and done, that's all there is!

    Ah, the old What if You Had to Start Over question always seems to stimulate a lively discussion.
    Reminds me of the old (2004) Joe Kumar book, 30 Days To Internet Marketing Success!
    In it he asks some 50 or so successful internet marketers what they would do.

    Ask any successful person if they think they could get back to where they
    are if they lost it all and had to start again and you will invariably get a very
    confident yes in reply.

    A favorite quotation of mine is attributed to Dewitt Jones, a former National
    Geographic photographer and someone worth listening to.
    He said; "I won't see it until I believe it"

    People who have already accomplished much obviously believe they can do
    it again.

    Those who have not yet achieved their goal might not be so confident.

    While I don't think you need to believe that you can do something better
    than anyone else...you do need to believe that you are capable of doing
    well, that which you choose to do...

    Believing it's worth doing and wanting it bad enough helps too.

    I agree Dan, but sometimes you have to get past a sticking point in order to get to it, and I think that this could be one of them, probably for me although I didn't even really realize it. But it's definitely time to get back to work! Kick butt Dan!

    I will watch for those movies, I LOVE movies with a message.

    Gord, you're right, you don't need to believe that you can do it better, I almost didn't write that but wasn't quite sure how to put it, I like your choice of doing it well.

    Lynn, I had almost forgot about our get rich quick and drop 20 pounds in one minute scheme Thanks for reminding me.

    I just watched a video that Stephen Pierce put out there. Guess what he said? He's no better than you!

    This video that he did is titled "If No One Is Ten Times Smarter Than You, Then How Can People Possibly Be Making 10 Or 100 Times More Money Than You?"

    http://www.makerealmoneyontheinterne...iiis/iiis.html

    It'll be interesting to see what the next video will contain. The title of that one is "Why Most People Never Make All The Money They Could! ...And How You Can Correct This Critical Error Today."

    Take a look at that title. "Why most people never make all the money they could!" ...basically, we all have the potential, some are just not tapping into it.

    By the way, I ended up watching "Robots" last night. Here are some of the quotes from that cartoon movie...

    "You can shine no matter what you're made of"

    "See a need, fill a need"

    "You've got greatness in you Rodney and never doubt it"

    "I know it's not easy Rodney, but a dream that you don't fight for can haunt you for the rest of your life"

    "Dad, I know you felt bad when I was growing up and you couldn't give me a lot, but you gave me the most important thing, you believed in me"

    Wow.... this thread has taken a turn in conversation I didn't expect to see. I agree that anyone can do it. No special skills required, no tenth level degree required, you just have to be willing to learn, do, fail, and do again so you can succeed.

    Sure, everyone will succeed at different levels, not everyone will be an IM guru, and a lot of people don't want to be either. Saying that there is some magical IT out there in certain people sounds more like an excuse to me than anything, a reason to tell yourself you can't do something.

    Well, I've always been very supportive of everyone in this forum, Lynn included. This whole thing has left me feeling on the dumped on and I really do have far better things to do with my time. And for the record, I've been working my tail off for 8+ years, there really isn't anything that anyone can say to tell me otherwise.

    I'm off to do a lot of restructuring myself - some of it thanks to this very thread. I think that it would do everyone well to go back and read the beginning - what would you do differently if you were to start again - and do that.

    Thank you all for a great post. I think what Lynn said is right. It boils down to us... to me whether i have a great great Guru or small one, I have to put my foot forward and start doing IT in order to see success rather wait for a special magic think to come over me.

    Lynn, I only knew you 2 months ago but I have learned alot of things from you which i never learn before. I am greatful to YOU and for your weekly webinar which moves me to work more each day.

    Whatever others say or will say, I am not bothered but for me... i know i can learn much much more from you Lynn and from your experiences.
    Nice knowing you.. Thank you, james samy

    For me, it's belief that if the person I'm watching can do it then I can. Not so much a belief in myself but that of a watch and learn then do model. It's more a belief in them to be honest. When Lynn says "If I can do it anyone can" I believe her.

    The Buddha states unequivocally that everyone can become a Buddha.

    The question is, will everyone become a Buddha?

    "Fools wait for a lucky day, but everyday is a lucky day for an industrious man" - Buddha. That's my response to your Mom's quote, Lynn.

    In this age of instant gratification, most do not want to get their hands dirty. If they can buy "IT", they will. That's why there are so many guru's out there with DFY (Done For You) programs/courses for the _un-initiated_ with credit card in hand.

    In defense for the truly hapless and helpless, to have spent much money on programs that you didn't take action with, try using what you've learnt for charity, and you might just find your "IT". Or at the very least, flog it off on e-bay - at least you would be able to get something back and may help someone who may not be able to afford the price you paid for them expensive programs/courses.

    Similar to what comedian Tim Hawkins said once:

    I'm the same as you: Only I've got a microphone - and talent!


    Seriously though, we know Lynn because she has chosen to step up into the public eye (i.e. her microphone) and help others learn to do what she was already doing. She could just as easily (and with a lot less hassle) sit at home, doing what she's always done and collect her money.

    I, for one, am grateful she has chosen to 'grab her mic' and share with us the tools/advice/wisdom/inspiration/kick-in-the-pants we need so we can then learn from all that & take action on it, so we too can become successful.

    Just reading her wisdom and listening to her weekly webinars does not make you successful. If that's all it took - then my just owning 2 dozen exercise tapes would make me thin! We have to actually use it.
