A Secret To Extraordinary Accomplishments


by Willie Crawford

I sat watching a documentary on U.S. Navy SEAL Team Training on the local exercise channel. It showed young men, mostly in their early 20's, enduring grueling ocean swims in near-freezing water. It showed these same young men forced to swim underwater (holding their breaths) until a major percentage of them passed out and had to be rescued by their instructors. It showed weeks of grueling training in which ordinary men are transformed into incredible machines with wills of steel and unshakable discipline.

Sitting... transfixed, and marveling at what these young men were able to accomplish, I saw the one missing element that most online business people are missing. I saw an ingredient that if more of them harnessed it, they would be able to accomplish things "in their world" as magnificent. That one secret ingredient is teamwork. It was the group cohesiveness, and the fact that they were all working for a common purpose that allowed the SEAL Team trainees to accomplish what they would not normally be able to do.

Enter the realm of the online entrepreneur. He sits at his computer, researching, writing and testing ads, tweaking his webpages in an effort to achieve greater search engine ranking, and doing a dozen other chores. Many of these online entrepreneurs do this all alone. They attempt the monumental... to build a six or even seven figure income while operating in a vacuum.

Step back and observe the Internet marketer earning several hundred thousand to several million dollars per year. He doesn't operate in a vacuum. I know! I lived among and studied these people, and in the process became one of them.

Let me emphasize what you may not be noticing on a conscious level:

When you think about why the above factors of extraordinary accomplishment are so powerful, it seems to boil down to one word. That word is... accountability. When you've made a commitment to a group to work towards a common goal, that's much more effective than if you just made that commitment to yourself. There's the incredible social pressure of not letting the group down. There's knowing that the success... or failure... of someone else hinges upon your actions. That's an amazing force that you can tap into today which will allow you to do things that you had previously not even imagined possible.

Now that you know the secret, if you're serious about building an incredible online business you only need to harness it. A good place to find people who are ideal for teaming up with is at seminars and conferences. That's why I attend so many. On breaks, at lunch, and after hours, I bounce ideas off of those with perhaps differing points of view, but with similar objectives.

While seminars and conferences offer lots of useful information and provide a motivational lift in-and-of themselves, my observation has been that the real "money" is made after-hours. That's where small groups of friends, who only became associates through these events, sit around and put together deals and flow out large projects. They do it around the pool or huddled in an individual's room. They don't just brainstorm, they make long-term business commitments. These are commitments that muster in them the same type of effort that I witnessed in the Navy SEAL trainees swimming in the freezing ocean water.

I encourage you to stop procrastinating and act upon this obvious but too-seldom acted upon gem today. If you need help locating events where you can look for ideal partners, visit my resource website: http://InternetMarketingSeminarSchedule.com It lists a variety of events, and might even offer some very convenient to where you live. Break out of your shell of mediocrity and do it today!

As an aside, the next event that I'll personally be at is Michael Penland's Internet Marketing and Joint Venture Super Conference, in Orlando, Florida, December 3rd - 5th. There will be a lot of people there looking for proactive potential business partners. That's the whole purpose of the conference. You can register for it today through a special link I've arranged for my clients and friends at: http://www.instantcashmarketing.com/WillieCrawfordSpecial.html
