On March 31 I sent the message found below to my mailing list. The message has received an amazing response.
Amazing in what way?
Amazing in the way that it was just the right message at just the right time.
It encouraged many and actually helped some not quit just when they are at the lowest of the low points.
I want to share this message with you in hopes that you will be encouraged by it as well.
Many of us face dark hours where we are discouraged, depressed, not supported by loved ones, and overwhelmed with the feeling of wanting to quit.
And yet history tells us, in a voice so loud it cannot be ignored, that our darkest hour can indeed become our finest hour.
I will share that I had $17 to my name at one point. To make matters worse, I was very ill with a family to raise. I was 45 years old at the time.
From that dark hour ultimately came the very blog you are reading right now.
The business I own, which serves over 20,000 customers, also came from that very dark hour.
No matter who you are, no matter where are you in your life, look up and know there is hope.
Seek for it. Hunger for it. Thirst for it and you will find it.
The original message is below. I hope you find it helpful.
This is just a personal message to share something from
my heart ...
I THINK YOU ARE DOING GREAT!
Why do I say that?
Because you are working hard and trying your very best
to succeed online.
Others have quit, but not you. You keep going.
Because you are learning new things every week.
You might not be where you want to be, but thank God you
are not where you used to be.
Because you are filled with hope!
"Filled with hope?"
Yep, and I can prove it with one question.
Here's the question ...
Can you see a future in which, with the right help, you could succeed online?
If you answered yes, or even maybe, you have hope. Now it's time to let that hope rise up in you and do its work.
Here is the takeaway ...
As Winston Churchill said so well "NEVER SURRENDER!"
Giving up on one type of marketing, or a traffic source, or a tool, is not the same as surrendering.
Surrendering happens when you close the computer and determine to quit trying.
And that is not you!
I believe in you.
And I will continue to believe in you and send you the very best information I can to help you in your quest to succeed.
Until next time, this is Charlie "If I can do it, you can do it too" Page wishing you a blessed Easter and a very happy weekend.
