Are you struggling through ad campaigns that address your motives but don’t seem to drive the necessary traffic? Are you feeling as though the steps you are taking aren’t leading to the top floor? Rewriting those words hundreds of times into a strong combination that will bring action seem to be taking your creativity away little by little every day. It is difficult to most entrepreneurs to fully imagine for individual needs of the web browsers each time they log on.

In writing this article, I came across a quote from an unknown author that stuck. This author stated, “You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind.” How profound for working in the internet marketing field. To truly succeed today requires action. But actions without direction is simply spinning in the mud. Added to your actions, you will need persistence.

What do I mean by persistence?

It’s the mental quality of continuing on in spite of opposition or negativity.

Llucretius wrote, “Constant dripping hollows out a stone.” Persistence. By following what you know in your heart and mind that your pursuits are just and true will provide you confidence each and every step of the way. Even at the beginning of your endeavor, to make it in this medium will require persistence with confidence. Elbert Hubbard stated, “The greatest mistake you can make in life is to continually be afraid you will make one.”

Persistence is essential and must be combined with confidence to complete each days’ task. Confidence comes by educating yourself on every aspect required to obtain the traffic you are looking for. Don’t blindly do something. Look up what others are doing or have done to improve your ideas. There is no excuse for not having that knowledge, because, those that are successful are because they think they can. And they do this with persistence with confidence.

The more you learn, and apply, will assist you each day. Your confidence will grow. Your results will improve. Your challenges will be more interesting, fun, and minimalize due to that confidence. I will end this with one of my favorite quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson who said, “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
