I was chatting with my brother just yesterday and we exchange some ideas and thoughts on our experiences in making money online. We don’t call ourselves internet moguls or internet marketers yet but he did mentioned a point which I will definately need to remember.
I had quite a tough time back in November and December when I need to deal with a server and hosting migration. It was the first time, it was hard and was really a tough challenge. What makes thing worse was that the domain of a forum that I had took over had expired and the previous owner had even forgotten what his username and password was to renew the domain name. It ended up with me abandoning (and setting a backorder for it) the whole brand and buying a new domain for the site. So, as you can imagine, this particualr site is still struggling to get decent traffic since it’s new, although it’s building up as days goes by. Although I did well in other areas, this one here hitted me pretty hard.
He simply told me that I wasn’t enjoying my game. That kind of kick me in the ass. He was damn right! I wasn’t enjoying the experience when I should had been! It was purely a game, and in any game, you don’t win everytime. Although losing is never an option, it still happens no matter what. That’s why it’s important to improve your game, to improve the odds of you winning the game.
Michael Jordan is probably the greatest sportsman that has my respect. He keeps making shots, shots and shots again every day, every season and every year. If you read Roger Federer track record, you will notice that he wasn’t that good when he first started playing in the pro tournaments. It was not until late 2002 that he started to shine in tennis and keep on playing, improving and breaking records as years goes by. And mind you, he was quite hot tempered when he frst started in pro, do you even see him screaming and throwing his racket nowadays? He’s probably the coolest tennis player in the tournament with the cheekiest smile.
Seriosuly, these guys motivate me. I love watching them play their game. The truth is, they must had worked REALLY hard to become what they are today. If you have watched or read any interviews, magazine reviews or post match interviews, you simply won’t miss it when they were asked how they were so successful in their game that they repeatedly mentioned that you have to first – Enjoy the game!
2008 will be a year for me to concentrate on my game, building up a team, polishing my skills and most important of all, ENJOY THE GAME!
