SHHH! I'M GOING TO SHARE A SECRET WITH YOU

I may be preaching to the preachers here. Some of you may already know, and understand, that there are no secrets to achieving success...You have all it takes right now!

If you're looking for the magic key that will open the floodgates to profitability and success. You can stop now. There is no magic key!

There's a steep learning curve at times. In fact, we never do stop learning and growing -- if we do, we die. 

There's tons of information on the internet that promises to give us "THE SECRET". "Do it this way," they say, "And success is yours - guaranteed!"

I'm here to tell you this is NOT entirely true! What they tell us is only the beginning. What they don't say is: Success is a result of action and it doesn't come from copying others! Success happens AFTER we learn those basic lessons, make them our own AND THEN confidently use our own unique personality and talents to deliver what others want.

Think of it this way. We all remember Elvis Presley. We may even occasionally enjoy an Elvis impersonator. But years from now, will we remember the impersonator -- or Elvis? Elvis learned what he could and then became his own man -- putting his own unique personality and talent into every performance. The impersonator simply copies what Elvis created.

Here's another example. Keith Price, one of our readers, could easily write yet another book on how to achieve success on the internet. He's got the skills and credentials. But, he's taking what he's learned and applying it in a different way -- as only Keith Price can.

Look at www.Marketing-Ridealong.com . Notice how Keith uses what he's learned through the years ... applies his own unique personality and approach ... and gives his customers something that they will not find anywhere else. It's a fascinating and totally unique approach. In fact, if you're having difficulty translating what you know into successful action, you may want to accept Keith's invitation to be one of 50 people who "ride along" as he actually goes through the entire process of marketing his own small business.

But, if you're still looking for that magic key to success, you can stop now. To achieve fame and earn a decent living, learn from the experts but don't stop there. Confidently apply your own talents to do what you do best. Let the market know that you're not a copycat. Use your unique creative voice. Speak loud and clear. You're truly UNIQUE ... Your SPECIAL ... You're One of a Kind.

And then watch what happens!
