Internet Marketing Versus Having a High I.Q.
Hi my friends. I’ve been thinking about how big of a deal having a high IQ really is in the big picture. Just for laughs, I took an I.Q. test a while back to see what mine was. The test was only 20 questions, so who knows how accurate it really is. I scored 146 which, according to the charts, puts me at a highly superior or genius level. Now, that’s fine and all, but what does it have to do with internet marketing?
As far as I’m concerned, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
In the long run, it’s not how smart you are that matters. It’s what you are able to do with the knowledge you have or gain through life situations, training, etc.
I believe that anyone with average intelligence and a willingness to learn, can and will succeed by TAKING ACTION based on that knowledge. Do you agree? Let me know in the comments below.
The cab driver’s story
When I drove a cab, there was another guy who worked for the same company as myself. He claimed to have a high I.Q. Sorry, I can’t remember exactly what it was, but it was higher than mine, according to him. He would read all kinds of stuff, but, he wasn’t doing anything with all this knowledge he was gaining, thus the reason he was driving a cab. He’d drive all night, go home, get stoned and play video games. We tended to think of him as an intellectual, someone who reads a lot but nothing that’s of any use to help better himself emotionally, financially or physically. Real intelligent. What do you think? Comment below.
Now, in my case, I have gained plenty of knowledge over the years. I could’ve probably been a millionaire by now, if I had acted upon it years ago. But, I was afraid to take the chance. There, I said it. I eventually did start taking chances and, yes, I’ve failed many times. The thing is, in my case, I had some knowledge, but not all the knowledge. I knew the basics of making a web page, getting a domain name and hosting. What I didn’t have was the knowledge about sales funnels, landing pages or squeeze pages, or how to get visitors to my sites, etc. I did, however, have the drive to learn what I needed and paid for courses and mentoring to help get me on the right foot, in the internet marketing niche.
It wouldn’t have mattered whether my I.Q. was as high as they say, or lower. It’s the wanting to learn what’s needed and the implementation of that knowledge that counts.
It doesn’t take a high I.Q. to see that if you want to learn and take action, you will succeed. Agreed?It doesn't take a high I.Q. to see that if you want to learn and take action, you will succeed. Click To Tweet
What do you want your story to say?
I’d like your story to say that you figured out what you wanted to, gained the necessary knowledge, and acted on it.
My promise to you
I can almost guarantee that if you do indeed start generating income with internet marketing, your family and friends will consider you a genius. We’ll know the truth, that you did what you needed to do, and success followed. So, get out there and do it, to live your dream life. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Some people love to brag about how intelligent they are based on a number. I think the real geniuses in society are the ones who provide a solution to a problem.
Here are some examples:
The corner store owner who provides goods for neighborhood.
The local gas station owner who helps by providing fuel for others to get to where they need to go.
The kids in the neighborhood who start a snow shoveling business to help those who can’t.
And many others.
We can do the same online, provide a solution to a problem, and all from a laptop.
Become a problem solver and join the legions of true geniuses who have and will continue to shape our world.

Until the next time, have a good one……..Chris
