Been a While – A Great StoryPosted by William
It’s been a while since I have posted and my apologies to you guys. I have been flat out working on a couple of projects and next week I will be launching Bootstrapedia Bootcamp so its been absolutely intense. I love it like that but I guess some things need to be put aside while I laser my focus on a few things.
But I read this article on the Warrior Forum and thought I must share it. Here it is:
If you want to be a success in Internet Marketing you would do well to take a lesson from an old Coot.
I call the Coot old because he/she has been around for a long long time.
You see the Coot is a bird that lives in Argentina, Bolivia and Chile.
At a certain time of year the Coots have a need for a nest so they can procreate Coot style.
Now you would think Mr. and Mrs. Coot would simply fly up into a tree and act like all the other birds and build their nest in a tree. Or maybe they could be like the ducks, chickens and Penguins and build their nest at any ol convenient place on or near the water/ground level.
Nope not the Coot. Just like successful Internet Marketers Mr. and Mrs. Coot just have to be different. They want to carve out a “special” place for their family and do so from the comfort of their “own space.”
One day eons ago The Coots decided they just had to have an island home. Well, darn it all, there were no Islands anywhere to be found. Mrs. Coot looked at Mr. Coot and said, “Well what the heck, let’s just build ourselves an Island.”
It sounded like a great Idea to Mr. Coot so he picked up a pebble and carried it out into the water and dropped it. But who could build their nest on one pebble?
So he picked up another pebble and took it out and dropped it in the same place in the water.
He went back to shore and continued the process one pebble at a time until he had dropped 3,000 pounds of pebbles in the water.
BEHOLD, beautiful Coot Island!
This is a true story, The Horned Coot to this day builds it’s islands in this manner.
So Internet Marketer, overnight success might come to some and get rich quick might be true for others. If you can do it more power to you.
In the mean time, take a lesson from the Old Coot and start doing something each day. Build your Island, one pebble at a time.
I think this really sums up the life of the Internet Marketer and Entrepreneur in general. You always have ups and downs but from learning and peristance you can take your steps, one pebble at a time, until one day you have an island.
