There are several wise messages in that video but, in terms of affiliate marketing, the bit I’d like to pick out is Chosen Ninja’s statement about “diligence and hard effort” being the route to success.

The single biggest reason I see people fail in business – and life – is because they lack persistence. They give up on the 10th or 50th or 100th attempt.

Thomas Edison conducted 10,000 experiments before he came up with the light bulb. So many inventors had tried and failed before him, and Edison had suffered failure after failure, but he refused to give up. It is because of his stubbornness to succeed that all of us benefit on a daily basis from one of the greatest inventions of all time.

As Edison himself said, “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.”

If you have the right attitude and work ethic, you have the ability to achieve absolutely anything.

So let this be the year you step up to the pedestal and say I Can.
