Why You Should Do Stuff On Your Own
I got a few emails from a friend asking me for example whether it’s ok to link from T2 and T3 pages to other people, whether he should use that link above the fold or below the fold (which I all answered) and then he also asked me:
“thanks Tomaz, when you send out emails for link exchanges, is your subject line: regarding link exchange and what is your version of value exchanges email?”
I personally think that asking for such specific examples is just too much. Here’s my reply:
😉 Don’t you think you could come up with something that would eventually work? Do you really feel satisfied and fulfilled by copying EVERYTHING?
I don’t have an exact email because I come up with something. I don’t have a copy / paste system neither for the email and neither for the subject line.
Sometimes I used “Hi from freedomideas.com” as a subject. I introduced myself and simply suggested a link exchange. Sometimes I used something else.
Try googling “link exchange email” and you’ll surely find some good suggestions.
But to build some confidence you NEED to do things YOURSELF. Otherwise you’ll ALWAYS feel that you don’t know stuff.
You know stuff when you come up with something and it works – maybe not the first time but eventually you learn and adapt.
Now you really know. You have results.
Results build confidence – especially results when you did something on your own. Copying stuff will NOT build confidence – you’ll always feel insecure. (regardless of how much money you earn!)
How do you want to feel in the future? Do you even realize that you have a choice about that?
You have a choice. Get ideas from some people who know stuff, then add your own ideas, modify stuff and come up with something creative and new.
Play with it, adapt and eventually it will work.
As Morpheus said to Neo: “There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.”
If I tell you something, you might “know” something about it.
But you need to walk the path. You need to do stuff on your own and then you’ll become the One. 😉
You’ll be able to create money out of thin air using just your brain, a laptop and an internet connection.
