Disclaimer: This post is not intended to be a negative one, in fact, quite the opposite. It is meant to motivate - drive - inspire. So take it with a grain of salt, if you dare.
Hard work. Sound familiar? To some, it doesn’t. Sadly, it is a dying aptitude amongst the crowds and for some it has never “clicked” on. It seems that getting rich quick is the dream…well, I don’t blame you for wishing it so, however, I am here to tell you that you will likely never get rich quick. Especially in the domain industry.
The answers will never be handed to you on a silver platter and no one is going to hold your hand along the way. Success will not be given to you - it must be earned. There is no easy way and there are absolutely no shortcuts to becoming a successful and profitable domain name investor. NONE. NADA. ZIP. ZILCH. ZERO.
Take a step back and really let that soak in.
Are you willing to work harder than everyone else?
Do you want it as badly as you can breathe?
Does the thought of succeeding consume your every waking moment?
Ask yourself those questions and honestly answer them. There is a reason that a select few are at the top and stay there. It’s no fluke. They didn’t ask for hand-outs, they busted their a***s to get to where they are. They dug deep, researched the industry and they engulfed themselves in everything they could find in order to become a successful domain name investor. Most importantly, they never gave up. Ever.
What I’m getting at is this: if you want to become a highly successful domain name investor it all comes down to one thing: hard work. If you aren’t waking up earlier, going to sleep later, and working harder than everyone else and only seeking a quick and easy way to get rich, you will never make it. You have the world's biggest online domain conference right at your fingertips: NamePros. There is more information on here than you will ever need to become successful.“I have never met a successful person that was a quitter. Successful people never, ever, give up!” Donald Trump
So how bad do you want it?
Are you willing to read every single post on NamePros?
Are you willing to watch every single DomainSherpa video?
Are you willing to look through every single listing there is on every auction platform?
Are you willing to scour through every blog post from every single industry related blog there is?
Read every single word on the internet that is related to this industry?
Are you willing to read every sales book ever written? Books on sales psychology? Negotiation tactics?
Are you able to soak up everything there is and only ask questions when you’ve exhausted every effort of your own to find the answers?!
How much work are you really willing to do? Because at the end of the day, what sets apart the successful people from the unsuccessful people is one thing: hard work.
As I said in the beginning of this post, this is not meant to be negative or to put you down, at all. I truly hope that this inspires you. I hope it ignites an explosion of curiosity and passion for you. I hope that you dream bigger, dig deeper, and push harder than you ever have to achieve your dream of becoming a successful domain name investor. This is one of those jobs that has more rewards than you can ever imagine. It is up to you to determine just how badly you actually want it.
Now, go get em’
