As soon as you start trying to grow, life will try to knock you down

Have you ever decided to start a new endeavor, a new project that is supposed to make you advance in your life, only to be crushed to the floor after you take the very first step?

Some more mystically inclined would say that is the Universe testing you, throwing a punch to see what you’re actually made of, if you’ve got what it takes. To see if you actually want it bad enough. Something to that effect.

I’m not trying to start an esoteric discussion here, but that is exactly what seems to have happened to me during the last couple of weeks. As soon as the next day that I published the first blog post, all hell broke lose and my life turned upside down.

I won’t go into personal details right now, but let’s just say that trying to making money on the internet or even posting about it suddenly became my last priority. I’m still trying to recover, and there’s a lot of work to be done.

So, what do you do when you make the decision to try Internet Marketing and life knocks you down?

You accelerate. You speed up, step on the gas, keep moving, whatever you call it.

Maybe you need to step back, take a breath, assess the situation for a while, but you must respond as fast as you possibly can.

You can’t stop.

I will not stop. I’m right here, writing a blog post.

The problems have not gone away, I still have to face them all. But if I let that stop me, if I don’t react right now sending a clear message that “you’re gonna have to do better than that”, then I’m done, I’m defeated. Might as well delete the blog and close my hosting account.

This post has no Internet Marketing tip, no income report, no pitch. And it’s not an excuse for 2 weeks without posting.

It’s just a statement to whatever force is trying to bring me down: it’s not going to work.

Posting resumes today.
