If you want to know what differentiates successful entrepreneurs from the rest, I can sum it up in four words: they bust their ass. Thomas Edison said that genius is 99 percent perspiration and 1 percent inspiration and boy was he right. I have been experiencing this in a big way with my other blog. As you already have noticed (and as I keep saying), my posting frequency has taken a hit since I’ve started AllFacebook.com. My total net output though has increased 5- to 10-fold. I am churning out at least 4 articles a day and often times 6 or 7. I also have a full time job which cuts in to my blogging time. The new post frequency is a significant change from this blog. I’ve read elsewhere and now can speak from experience when I say that there is a direct correlation between posting frequency and amount of traffic. At a certain point this correlation becomes weaker but it definitely exists. Anyone that can be a successful blogger, can be a successful entrepreneur. The sheer number of unpaid hours that you will spend in the first 6 months of building a successful blog can be daunting but a clear vision and the belief that there is a reward in the end is all you have to keep you going.
I have yet to receive a significant payout from my new blog but I have entertained a number of offers. This is the only thing that makes me think that my new blog has a chance at greater success. Will it become the next TechCrunch or Mashable? Who knows. Do I care? Not really. I will keep staying up until 1 or 2 AM just so my readers have something to fill their time with the next day. I believe that this dedication will somehow reap rewards through building relationships, increasing client referrals and building name recognition, but I don’t know how quickly all this will happen. All I know it that it will. I read in Napoleon Hill’s think and Grow Rich that one of the key components of becoming successful is having an unwavering faith that you will succeed. He was right. So for all of you that have an idea that you want to have materialize, start working on it. All you need is the willingness to learn how to get where you are going and unwavering faith. That’s it. I know you can get there and I know you will. You might not get there on the first go around but if you keep that vision close I know you will get there. Best of luck! I will see you at the finish line!
