The reality is that most people spend life in the spectator seats, far from the arena where the gladiators play. -Chad Howse
When you start a business, especially an online one, you hear the words “automation” thrown around like they’re nothing. (Read This: The Road of The Entrepreneur)
People say, “Automate your business so you don’t have to work and the income becomes automatic.”
It sounds nice.
What I’ve realized is that the harder you work, the more views your site gets, the more leads you get, the more leads you convert, and the more your “automation” actually works.
No matter what business you’re in, hard work is necessary if you want to be great.

No matter what aspect of LIFE you’re talking about, you have to get into the trenches on a daily basis, doing things you may not be fond of, for the greater purpose and the bigger picture. (Check This Out: Find Happiness In Work. Not Work In Happiness.)
People like to say that there are easy paths to success. Success, however, isn’t merely about money, it’s about value.
To create real value in a market or in the lives of others you have to work your ass off.
To create value in your own life you have to get into the arena, you have to be marred by blood and sweat and tears and fail. You have to hustle. You have to push yourself beyond what you want to do.
Most are content reading articles on sites telling them that “they can do anything they put their mind to,” or “greatness is just around the corner”.
These sites are bullshit. They feed off of your desire to want nothing more than a pick me up.
I don’t want that here. This tribe is for humans who are ready to march into the arena, fail, get hurt, but persist through the pain that life brings and meet their potential on the other side.
