TrafficWave - OceanSwell TEAM Update (#47)

What's the key to online success? That's what everyone wants to know! The truth is that there isn't one single 'key' because the rules to the game are always changing. That is why you must be flexible and adaptable at all times. Getting locked into one strategy or one method of doing things spells DOOM in this business. Like water, you must flow over and around obstacles on your way downstream. Obviously, I have decided to make a change and begin publishing my Team OceanSwell updates here on my blog, rather than through the autoresponder broadcast function.

Why? Because blog posts have far more visibility! Secondly, you can drive traffic to a blog post but you can't drive traffic to an email! Thirdly, my html template wasn't properly viewable through some email servers, so putting the updates here makes a LOT more sense. On top of that, it affords a whole lot more exposure for the affiliate link of the Team Member currently in the Rotator. In this case, that's Jim Blackburn. And now that his TrafficWave affiliate link is immortalized on my blog, people all over the world have a chance to see it and join TrafficWave and Team OceanSwell through Jim's link! This is a substantial improvement over the way I have been doing things since early November of last year. But we learn as we go, right? Remember what I said: flexible and adaptable

Here is something on the subject written by my late hero, Mr. Jim Rohn: "Over the years, I’ve been teaching kids about a simple but powerful concept: the Ant Philosophy. I think everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four-part philosophy. Here is the first part: Ants never quit. That’s a good philosophy. If they’re headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they’ll look for another way. They’ll climb over. They’ll climb under. They’ll climb around. They keep looking for another way. What a neat philosophy—to never quit looking for a way to get where you’re supposed to go.

Second, ants think winter all summer. That’s an important perspective. You can’t be so naive as to think summer will last forever. So ants gather their winter food in the middle of summer. An ancient story says, “Don’t build your house on the sand in the summer.” Why do we need that advice? Because it is important to think ahead. In the summer, you’ve got to think storm. You’ve got to think rocks as you enjoy the sand and sun. The third part of the Ant Philosophy is that ants think summer all winter. That is so important. During the winter, ants remind themselves, “This won’t last long; we’ll soon be out of here.” And the first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they’ll dive back down, but then they come out the first warm day. They can’t wait to get out.

And here’s the last part of the ant philosophy. How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter? All he possibly can. What an incredible philosophy, the “all-you-possibly-can” philosophy. Wow, what a great philosophy to have—the ant philosophy. Never give up, look ahead, stay positive and do all you can."
