“Walk The Line…”
– A Raving Rant By Mike Dillard
Complete With Photos.
I’m sitting here about 11:00 PM watching “Walk The Line” for the fourth or fifth time, and every time I do, it still inspires me.
Because it’s about a man who followed his dream though hell and high water. He was willing to do whatever it took, and even managed to do so while battling the personal demons that haunted him and the conflicts he struggled with at home.
I want you to understand something about me, and from this day forward, I want you to take a long hard look at yourself and decide what it is that you REALLY want out of life because you’ve got to make a choice…
You either do what you need to, or you don’t…
There is no middle ground. No, “have your cake and eat it to”.
You see, I’m not intelligent by society’s standard. It took me 5 years to graduate from college with a 2.0 and my newsletters have more spelling errors than Paris Hilton has boyfriends.
I took all of my finance classes, all of my accounting classes, and all of my math classes THREE TIMES EACH, before I passed them.
But I was smart enough to know a few things that most people don’t…
I knew there was no “we’ll do it for you” solution to anything in life.
I knew I needed to master a few key skill sets if I was to get what I wanted, which is why I spent most of my college years, not in class, but at Barne’s and Noble reading “real” books on business.
I knew that if I wanted to stop buying leads, I’d need to learn how to generate my own, so I bought some books and learned how.
I knew that if I wanted to sell my business and products to people, that I’d need to learn how to write a sales letter, so I bought some books and learned how.
I knew that if I wanted to make my own sales letters, I’d need to learn how to make a website, so I bought some books and learned how.
I knew that if I wanted to be successful in networking, I’d need to get over my fear of the phone, so I took a job that required me to make 200-300 cold calls per day, and learned how.
But here’s the one thing I NEVER DID during the past 6 years that allowed me to go from “Point A to Point Rich…”
I never complained, I never whined, I never bitched, I never blamed anyone other than myself, and I never gave up because I would have rather spent my life in poverty trying, than to have lived in resignation that I didn’t have what it took.
I don’t want to burst your bubble, but here’s God’s Honest Truth…
If you want what I’ve got, you’ve got to be willing to do what I’ve done.
You’ve got to earn the right through blood, sweat, and tears, and there is NO alternative, sodon’t ever ask me or anyone else if there’s an “easy way” to do something.
Are you willing to do that?
Then here’s “My List”… The price I paid to get to where I am, found on the bookshelves you’ll see pictured below…

This image represents about 30% of my personal library. The rest is on the laptop, or has taken place during phone calls. Imagine 3 more of these images side-by-side, and then you’ll know how much I’ve had to personally invest in myself to get to where I’m at…
So here’s the bottom line…
NEVER… EVER… ask me if there’s an easy way to generate leads, make money online, or build a downline.
Don’t EVER ask me if “Magnetic Sponsoring” will work for you or your company. (Of course it will).
Don’t EVER ask me if it’s the only book you’ll ever need to buy. (Of course it’s not).
Don’t EVER ask me why I charge what I charge for the knowledge in Magnetic Sponsoring or Traffic Formula. They cost you pennies compared what you’d pay to get that kind of information on your own.
Don’t EVER whine or complain when a prospect rejects your weak phone call.
Don’t EVER ask me if there’s a magic pill that will change your life.
BECAUSE IT’S JUST PLAIN INSULTING TO THOSE OF US WHO PAID THE PRICE.
STOP MAKING EXCUSES, STOP BEING A BABY, AND DO THE SAME.
Success is not the result of luck or an accident.
Success is not fast.
Success is the culmination of countless failures and endless hours of study.
But most of all… Success is worth the sacrifice.
If you’ve read this newsletter and understood it’s message, yet you still don’t own a copy ofMagnetic Sponsoring, then get off my list. Seriously.
You’re kidding yourself.
Go back to your JOB and come to peace with the fact that you’ll always be there.
There’s no room for excuse makers in the Fraternity of Do’ers, and nothing I can ever teach you will bring the results you want until you get your head straight.
How do you do that?
Go read Psycho-Cybernetics. Read it over and over again until you fix your head.
Kill your excuses and accept your greatness.
Everything you need is already in you.
“Walk The Line” just ended… I’m going to bed.
