“If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in the dark with a mosquito.” – Betty Reese (from Tai Lopez)
Powerful quote, the principle is such a simple one: Size doesn’t matter, persistence does.
Some of us have accomplished incredible things in our lives, but many still don’t believe that they can actually cause changes they want.
Maybe you’re on the hunt for a better standard of living, to be debt free, or simply have less stress day to day. There’s really only one thing that has been tried and trusted and proven over and over again to be effective…
You guessed it right: Persistence.
Be the mosquito (plus money map)…
Persistence is almost always the determining factor when it comes to making lasting, positive, change.
Are you willing to “fail” over and over again, learning from your mistakes along the way, to achieve your goal? Lot’s of people say they are, but simply don’t “put their money where their mouth is”.
Yes, persistence can be a risk. There’s no doubt you will fail at first when you try something new, whether it’s a new way of thinking or a new way of living, you’re going to make mistakes.
Just one tip! Disconnect the words “failure” and “bad”, remind yourself every day that ACTION is what’s important, not the end result (for now).
What you can accomplish once you start applying this principle is nothing short of incredible. Doors start to open, boredom is replaced with excitement, and best of all you finally feel in control of the direction of your life.
How can I be so confident that this principle works? Because I saw it working in others life and I apply it to my life (especially now in affiliate marketing).
Note that it’s not an “overnight” success, you have sometimes actually spend over a year with many courses and coaching programs… and no success.
If you don’t give up, you’ll see the result. Your persistence will pay off.
Now I have to add an important detail to the “persistence is everything” equation…
WHAT you’re being persistent at is important.
As successful people noted in their stories, they had tried a lot of things that didn’t work (again not a bad thing), but what did work was a tried and tested system. If you can start on a path that’s been tested before, even if it’s difficult, it has a much higher chance of bringing you the results you want.
That’s exactly what many online top-earners did, they were fortunate to find a system that worked for them. Their persistence paid off.

I voted for my own personal economy… (I agree with this point suggested by Terry Lamb)
Easy, I purchased this; and I promote it online for a full time living.
I even leverage it 100%, meaning I need nothing but THAT.
Vote for your own ECONOMY HERE.
Doesn’t matter who wins now in American election (Now we know that it’s Donald Trump) (continued by Tai Lopez).
With mainstream media focused so much on tomorrow’s election, Americans are consumed by fear. They think one man or woman is going to solve their problems, shift their financial woes, and be the cure-all for their less-than-great life.
They’re wrong. Only you can change your own life.
How? You’ve heard me say it before but it’s true: you have to invest in yourself to acquire the knowledge you need to make changes and then you have to take action.
Financial freedom is not about working hard around the clock, but learning how to work smart. Learning how to make your money work for you, so you don’t have to physically wear yourself down working for it.
Along with the fact that inflation and taxes will only go up, comes the fact that our bodies will slow down over time. At some point in your life, you’ll want to work less, travel more, spend quality time with your loved ones, eat at your favorite restaurants, drive your dream car…
…that “time” is determined by one person, and one person only — you.
Your actions determine your results, and your thoughts determine your actions.

But I Don’t Have Enough Time… (story by Tai Lopez)
My first mentor Joel Salatin used to tell me, “Tai, when people tell you they don’t have time, they mean they don’t have time ‘for that’. People always make time for their true priorities…”
There’s so many minutes in an hour, hours in a day, and days in a week but people still somehow manage to make excuses for why they can’t do things.
What they should be doing is creating reasons for why they can do things.
When I was living in a trailer with only $47 dollars to my name, I could have told myself that it’s helpless and convince myself I’m wasting my time even though I’m trying to get out of the situation.
If I did that, I wouldn’t have improved my life and I wouldn’t be here talking to you now.
See, as long as you’re taking action towards progress there is no such thing as “wasting time”. The only time that’s wasted is time doing nothing.
So ask yourself this… Are you taking advantage of the limited time you have left on this earth?
Meanwhile, take a look at this suggestion – spend some time –>> here
There’s been plenty of times in my life as an entrepreneur where I’ve missed big opportunities because I didn’t take the chance… some of these ended up being successful projects.
I’ve learned that it’s important to make sure that not only are you optimizing your time, but also seizing the opportunity in front of you.
You never know what you’re going to miss out on if you play it too safe.

Life is all about the quality of your decisions.
So, did anyone have the brilliant idea to teach you genius-level decision-making strategies in school when you were young?
Nope. Of course not, haha.
There is a sample of one rule…
But think about it – every important area of your life is all about a decision.
Who you marry. The political party you follow. What religion you embrace. What diet you implement. What career you pursue.
If you mess up one of these decisions, you can waste ten years of your life easily.
You might never recover from even one bad decision.
Remember, it’s only the book, you must apply these strategies.
Because books can kill your business – see previous post…
The Decision Book: 50 Models for Strategic Thinking by Mikael Krogerus,
…explains 50 different strategies smart people have used throughout history to make the right decision in life and business.
Forget what you learned about elementary things like a pros and cons list.
This book has more advanced, interesting solutions like:
I highly recommend this one. (as Tai Lopez did)
It’s a tiny book that you can read slowly over a few sittings. I’m already on my second pass through it.

*** (Ideas and info are from Titanium Mastermind paid inner circle, MOBE)
For example, a buddy of mine who makes about $50 million a year purposely goes on industry forums and posts the wrong things. He misleads other competitor entrepreneurs by saying, “Hey, here’s XYZ that’s really working for me right now in marketing.”
But in actuality, he posts what’s performing the worst.
I asked him why he does this and he said, “Hey, you gotta throw them off track.”
No, I don’t necessarily think all entrepreneurs are like this. Some are a lot more generous with their time and information than others.
In fact, my mentor Allan Nation used to tell me, “Tai, go ahead and tell everybody what you’re doing. People are so proud and cocky they won’t even copy you.”
Interestingly, I’ve tested that over the years and he’s right. It’s rare that people are actually humble enough to copy.
As Picasso said, “Good artists copy. Great artists steal.”
But back to the original question – are there insider tricks that only the elite entrepreneurs know?
I would say without a doubt, yes.
And the sooner you learn them the better off you will be.
Personally, I give a lot of stuff away for free online and even more in my paid programs. But I always hold back about 5-10% just because I’m not an idiot, haha.
In the spirit of generosity though, let me share a few insider tricks that are rarely talked about in the entrepreneur magazines or conferences (some of these you might know, but ask yourself how well you’re actually applying them):
1. Marketing trumps all: Steve Jobs and Apple eventually beat Microsoft. “Good product and good marketing” don’t beat “decent product and amazing marketing.”
There is the old saying by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “If a man has good corn or wood, or boards, or pigs to sell, or can make better chairs or knives, crucibles or church organs, than anybody else, you will find a broad hard-beaten road to his house, though it be in the woods.”
That may have been true in the 1800s, but it sure as hell isn’t true anymore. In a world with billions of webpages there’s absolutely no way you will succeed as an entrepreneur without being insanely skilled at marketing.
2. You need a real team: There is this myth among newbie entrepreneurs that they can do it solo or with just one or two employees and do it well. It’s BS.
In my opinion, the minimum viable entrepreneurial company is made up of at least ten people. Anything below that is operating without efficiencies of scale, without the necessary redundancy needed to reduce risk, and without the increased skill levels that come from specialization (like Henry Ford understood).
You might be able to think of some random entrepreneur who did well with just a few people, but like Bill Gates used to say, “I never did anything alone.”
That’s what Bill Gates knew that made him $70 billion while the average global entrepreneur struggles to make even six figures.
3. Raising capital should be done in precise phases: Only truly advanced entrepreneurs fully understand how to utilize capital. Most new entrepreneurs think they need a whole bunch of money upfront. They don’t understand the seasonal phasing cycles of business.
Bringing capital from outside sources is rarely wise right at the beginning.
Occasionally it is – if you’re in a highly capital-intensive industry or if you already are an entrepreneur with a proven track record.
But if you are not, you are going to get bad valuations and give up too much equity upfront in your business.
Even more importantly, the extra capital will make you lazy and less likely to run through the numerous experiment cycles needed to build a powerful business.
Bring in capital once there’s a proof of your concept rocking and rolling with real momentum.
Do you need a real team and plan?
