What are your odds of becoming a successful freelance copywriter?
What are your odds of becoming successful at anything?
Here's the way I see it:
Only about 5% truly succeed in any endeavor. Doesn't matter if it's a job, a new business, whatever.
These odds mean you have to fail a lot.
- I failed at MLM.
- I failed at running a vending business.
- I failed at becoming a financial planner.
Looking back, I've failed so many times. But I succeeded as a freelance copywriter. The reasons I finally succeeded are too many to share. Nevertheless, I will share...
An Easy Way to Improve Your Odds!
There is an easy way to improve your odds of success. That is, burn your ships.
When you have no other choice but to make things work, you are much more likely to succeed. Your brain works overtime to bring you success... because... you can't go backward. You can only go forward.
April 19, 2005, exactly one month after my second child was born, I logged my last day on the job. Then I set out to become a financial planner, which, as you already know, didn't work out.
With only two weeks of money left--and no source of income whatsoever--I launched my freelance copywriting career. The date was June 13, 2005.
Miraculously, it all worked out. (Praise God!)
Is it easy to burn your ships? No. It's not. But if you have the guts to do it, success will be that much closer. Let my testimony be an example.
