Ode To Marketing Whiners and Losers

Image result for out of breath

Man, I’m winded!!!!

I’m dead tired of chasing one opportunity after the next.

Man, I’m winded!!!!

I’ve spun my wheels till they spark searching for the Holy Grail of online marketing success.

Man, I’m winded!!!!

How much chump change must I steal from my piggy bank in pursuit of my dreams before I strike gold?

Man I’m winded!!!!

How many rah-rah workshops, teleseminars, “secret” reports, half-functional software tools and an assortment of other junk must I collect on my hard drive before I say “Enough is enough”?

Man, I’m winded!!!!

Who am I kidding?  Success is for the young, the intelligent, the fit, the privileged and the lucky.  Isn’t it true that they – those greedy, slick hucksters proliferating the Net – play on our desire to have more for less?

Man, I’m winded!!!!

It’s hard to believe that I live in one of the richest countries in the world – a place teeming with information and freedom to attain wealth – yet I wallow in mediocrity, underachievement and resignation.

Man, I’m winded!!!!

So many choices and they all cost too much for me to explore.

Man, I’m winded!!!!

Who can I trust out there in cyber-land?  All I want is an even break, a chance to strut my stuff.

Man, I’m winded!!!!

I’d give every scraggly possession under my sun just for one test drive in the success lane of life.

Man, I’m ready!!!!!

Get out of my way.  I’m on fire and I’ll take no prisoners.

Man, I’m ready!!!!!

It’s a new day and a new way.

Man, I’m ready!!!!!

I may not be all I want to be but I am all I have…and that’s more than enough!

Man, I’m ready!!!!!

I have no ear for those voices of doubt.

Man, I’m ready!!!!!

Every tool I need for success is right before my eyes, if only I can learn to open them to the realm of possibility.

Man, I’m ready!!!!!

Before I can read the book of success, I must first open it with action.

Man, I’m ready!!!!!

The slings and arrows of life do not define me anymore.

Man, I’m ready!!!!!

My circumstances can’t confine me when my thinking is clear.

Man, I’m unstoppable!!!!!!

Life is a gift.

Life is a chance to see what is possible for you.

Life is a chance to make a significant difference in this world.

Life will not make headliners of us all, but we can touch others in ways which make them spiritually rich and financially secure.  You have the choice to be winded, to be ready or to be unstoppable.

So what’s stopping you?  Remove those barriers, one day at a time.  There is greatness in each of us which is screaming to get out.  I’ll be sappy, if I must:  Don’t ever settle for second best or last place.
