The internet is a wonderful, phenomenal tool. One of the greatest inventions of all time.
Anything you want, the internet can provide.
Anything you want to learn you can learn online. The knowledge of the world is free to all or comes at a small price.
But we take it too far. We all do. We spend our time playing on social networking sites and pretending we're cooler than we are, or we spend our time complaining on social networking sites. Or we spend our time looking at pornography. Or we spend three hours watching funny videos.
We spend our time in a fake world, a fake reality, talking to a computer screen, talking to other fakers sitting behind their computer. We walk outside and instead of saying hello to a pretty girl we bury ourselves in our phones, and it's just as well because she's even more obsessed with her fantasy.
All that time spent on baloney could be used to learn or earn. On the internet we can learn how to earn. Any industry we want to know about we can find on the internet. Any company we want to connect with we can find on the internet. Any industry we want to break into we can find on the internet. Anything we want to sell we can sell on the internet.
The first step to saying goodbye to the nine-to-five jive is research, research and more research and it can all be done from the internet. Learn, learn, learn until it's time to earn, earn, earn.
We could learn from it and then put our plan into action and earn from it.
All that wasted time spent on baloney could be used to advance our freedom from the nine-to-five jive.
If you can't learn from it or earn from it then burn it. Let it go. Light it on fire and watch it die. It's a waste of time and it's a waste of life.
If it has no tangible, positive results then burn it up.
Leave the social networking sites for the lonely people, for the lost people. It's for the narcissists. It's for the people who have nothing else. They can have it. Unless you can earn from it you don't need it.
The old friends worth connecting with aren't playing around on social networking sites all day. The ones who actively use social networking use it for whining, complaining, cry-baby'ing, and ego boosting.
They live online, but online living is no living at all.
Internet stars actively promote social networking for one very important reason – they earn from it. It gives them tangible results. It's a cash cow because of all the people spending every day and night obsessed with their fantasy world. What the average Joe doesn't know is that social networking is a big, big money-maker for the internet entrepreneurs.
“But it's a great way to connect with friends and family!”
No it isn't. People connected with friends and family for a really long time before the internet. Social networking is a great way for smart people to make a whole lot of money. That's what it's for and that's how a smart person should use it.
There are three kinds of users of all social networking sites:
a) Earners: Big Dogs who make Big money from the social networking sites and who have the most followers
b) Learners: Small Dogs who are actively trying to become Big Dogs, they're learning from the Bog Dogs how to do it
c) Cash Cows: People handing out money without even knowing it, the smart people capitalize on the cash cows
E-mail is a perfectly efficient way to say “hi” to friends and family and leaves plenty of free time to learn and earn.
The internet can be a tool of freedom or a vicious slave-master. Choice is ours. We know how the smart people use it.
You could be the man behind the screen making the money or you can be the man in front of the screen handing out your money without even knowing it.
There's ass to kick on the internet – if you aren't the kicker then you're the one getting kicked.
Leave the positive and cut out the baloney.
If you can't learn or earn from it, baby, it's time to burn it.
