And that got me to thinking. About this guy:
Yep, that’s right. The one and only Wile E. Coyote.
His antics in trying to catch the Road Runner truly never ended. He tried Acme product after Acme product hoping to reach his ONE goal: catching that darn Road Runner.
But, to the amusement of the audience, he never could catch up with the Road Runner.
Then I got to thinking about how watching Wile E. Coyote can lead to some useful success tips for Internet marketers. The past 3 years I’ve spent learning and implementing the many skills that make folks who do business online successful. And as a result I’ve coached many of my clients to success on the Internet using effective communication skills, public speaking, and my solid business and life coaching/consulting hybrid mix. And to me, true success is helping the people I work with succeed themselves.
If Mr. Wile E Coyote was MY client, here’s what I would suggest to him:
- Don’t put all your effort toward achieving just ONE goal. Have multiple goals by creating various streams of income — er– I mean — food sources(?). Then your world isn’t feast or famine.
- Evaluate spending your time and money with Acme. They may be the biggest brand on the block, but what results do you have to show for investing your money with them? And what support do they give you to help you once you own their products? Mr. Coyote, I dare say a company that allows you to explode in the air, fall flat on your face, go poof at the bottom of a canyon and more doesn’t care about your success– only if you make the next purchase from them.
- Maybe before you put the newest Acme tool or gadget to work, you could test it to make sure you won’t explode in the air, fall flat on your face, or go poof at the bottom of a canyon.
Then I’d tell my client, Mr. Coyote this: you are doing one thing right that many people don’t do. You keep on going, keep on trying, and never never ever give up. Perseverance is truly one of the secrets to success.
