Wait a Minute… Only Three Small Steps to Success?
When it comes to new things or new ideas that don’t make sense to everyone, the people with the new idea (that nobody gets) will begin by trying to sway others to believe in the 3 Steps to Success “Rule”. It is really just an attempt to prove themselves right.
It goes something like this:
“My new idea isn’t being received well, because all new ideas go thru three steps…”
2) Opposition (sometimes violent)
3) Self Evident (they become the norm)
The “3 Steps Rule”, however, is false logic. It basically states the following:
a) All “truths” goes through 3 steps
b) My belief is going through the first step: laughter and ridicule
c) My belief must be “truth”, therefore, I’m on my way to success!
The reason this is bogus logic is because there are plenty of truths that did NOT go through these three small steps to success. Deductive reasoning discredits the supposed logic in “The Rule”, thereby destroying “The Rule”.
Here’s a small quote to chew on:
“But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.” – Carl Sagan
Take in online marketing one step at a time, but don’t expect to be highly successful after taking only a couple or few in your new shoes. Not unlike healing, success is a journey, not an event.
Enjoy your time learning, experiencing and doing…within that context your success will find it’s way to you!
