Mistake Your Way to Success

Posted on September 11, 2007 by Tim Schroeder

I love hearing success stories. I love them even more if I’ve been a small part at helping towards that person’s success.

I personally remember when I first started making a couple hudred bucks a month online. I was ecstatic! Little did I know is that those numbers were just a fraction of what I earn online each and everyday through affiliate marketing now. However, it wasn’t an instant success story. I had a lot of failures along the way. But I learned from these mistakes. Your mistakes may soon turn into opportunities of the future.

Ok, so you have probably heard all this before but nevertheless, it’s good to get a reminder or a get a kick in the butt to keep going. Also remember to diversify your income streams through multiple affiliate marketing techniques and through multiple websites. One project may be a bust but the next one around the corner a huge success.

Think about these two quotes:

It is not our mistakes that define who we are; it is how we recover from those mistakes.” Bo Bennett

I have learned more from my mistakes than from my successes.” Humphrey Davy

The number one reason most affiliates fail is because they don’t take action. The second reason is that they give up after just a couple mistakes. Every affiliate marketing expert started somewhere.

Take action NOW, learn from your mistakes and do not give up.

    Great advice Tim. I’ve definitely learnt from my blogging mistakes and have used them to better forge my future on my site, and can carry forward the mistakes I made, so I don’t repeat them on future sites. Those quotes are excellent too.

    Love the quotes!

    Developing the characteristics to be successful online is an ongoing journey. I think we always need to look for ways to learn more, chances to grow, and stretch beyond your comfort zones.

    Mistakes WILL be made along the way! It’s just a fact of life…

    However we can’t let this scare us into not moving forward…Like you said, mistakes can be a good thing if you know how to learn from them effectively.

    In order to be successful you must try and apply!

    No more excuses – just do it! NOW!

    Those last two sayings help me get going when I am procrastinating because i am worried about making a mistake…I am going to add the quotes from your post to my notepad of quotes to refer back to when I need a kickstart!

    Thanks a bunch for the great post!
