Hundredaire Definition: person who has made only hundreds of dollars online.
“Ryan, respond to every comment! Ryan, do not post 6 times daily! You will piss off your readers!”
I followed this advice. Right into the poorhouse. Then I realized a stunning personal development truth: I was taking advice from hundredaires. People who made hundreds of dollars online. If that. Or maybe you can toss a few thousandaires in there. My bad!
Now I am all for learning from everybody but if a millionaire is doing it, I should be doing it too, if I want to be financially free. I have not made hundreds of thousands of dollars let alone millions online BUT I know this: if I take advice from people who make hundreds of dollars I will never make the quantum leap to millions. I will never become truly financially free.
To become financially free you must do as the financially free do. Create like a machine, meet people and leave all the non-essential tasks behind. No person became wildly successful online or offline by spending their time doing things that mattered little. The power brokers will wake you up in this department, trust me.
Check for advice to see if:
- you have been listening to struggling entrepreneurs
- you are being duped my hundredaires
- you are holding back based on some false limiting belief impressed on you by broke buddies, even if they are buddies
Hey, I love my friends but sometimes you need to see the truth….actually, all the time….no matter uncomfortable this might feel for you. I understand my blogging buddies might have seen success using certain approaches but what type of success? Are they struggling? Or raking in a serious bundle of cash?
The Money Thing
This is not about money, but then again it is too. Check your beliefs. Then again, check the source of your beliefs. Are they clear on their life? Are they successful? Are they prospering? Why would you take advice from ANYONE but the most successful people in your niche?
Beware. You might be following some other person’s limiting belief. Someone might be feeding you a BS line parroted down from other failures, with the blind leading the blind. This is not a good look for you.
I love getting comments but hate responding to comments. I would rather write all day long because writing makes my heart sing. I love commenting on other blogs and promoting other people but I feared NOT responding to comments because of advice I picked up from other bloggers.
This advice is not necessarily good or bad….I know some rich, really successful bloggers who never responded much to comments, and I know failing bloggers who respond to every comment, and have been for a long time.
This is the truth. Check your beliefs. Check your approach. Then, assess the source of your advice. You might be running around, trying to respond to every comment, yet write 1 post each week, and generate .02 cents of revenue over the past month, then you wonder why you are struggling to make money.
Personal Development Wake Up Call
This stings. I know, because I have felt the sting, financially. I ignored my intuition. I listened to advice from folks who were struggling to make a dime.
Just my life.
So going forward I am checking the source of my advice. Sure I will see good advice when I see it, but I sure will not move on tips from someone who struggles to make ends meet.
Surround yourself with the leaders. Become a leader. Learn from all but take advice from successful and prospering people to heart.
The Ultimate Lesson
Hang out with who you emulate. Take this piece of personal development advice to the bank. Be the person you want to be. Emulate the people you want to be. Even if you have no grand plans to be a millionaire do take advice from people who have the results to show for their insights. No need to struggle is the difference maker is taking advice from millionaires instead of hundredaires.
As an Aside
This is in NO way demeaning folks who are struggling. I feel your pain. I know your heartache. Just realize that your life will change the moment you surround yourself with successful, powerful people and follow their advice. Make an impact. Learn from the best. Take instruction from the top people in your field to become a success yourself.
At least if you want to rock this online game out. That is what you wish to do, right?
Do/Have you taken advice from hundredaires?
