"If you really make money with this, why would you teach it to others?"
Have you ever heard this skeptical question / argument,
"If people would really be making money online, why would they teach it to others? They only make money by teaching others how to make money. Stay far away from gurus!"
Even though that sounds like a logical argument, it's complete nonsense. I've read and seen that so many times that I wanted to take a few moments to go through that today.
I know that a lot of you are working in the "make money online" industry helping others to get started also so let this be an inspiration for you as wel.
Selfish vs Sharing Worldview
First of all, that argument pours from a worldview that if you know something great, you would not want to share it with anyone.
Just keep it to yourself. Why help others if you're already successful?
Well, that's one way to look at the world. Just live for yourself.
But I think that's not a way to fulfillment. Once you die, your knowledge and success would die with you.
What if instead you share your success and "secrets" with people? You can help and inspire others to achieve great things too.
We Need Coaches and Mentors
Think about a football team without a coach.
Think about an ice hockey team without a coach.
Think about a world record breaking athlete without having any coach.
Why would it be different with other aspects of life?
One way is to learn through trial and error but we all know that by learning from someone who has already done it is much faster.
And even the greatest athletes have coaches. Their coaches are not on the same level that they are but they still help them.
I remember when I was playing chess actively.
I have had 2 chess coaches... Over time I became a much better player than both of them but still practicing with them helped me to improve my game.
You see that coaches don't even need be to be better. Sometimes people just need that "extra push" to do the things. We need daily reminders to do the right thing and give our best.
We Need Role Models
What got you started and interested in making money online.
I guess you saw someone who was already doing it and then you got inspired that you could do it too.
When I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I didn't know personally anyone who would make a living online. This was a completely new world for me.
Then I saw Kyle, Nathaniell and others who had traveled the world while making money from their laptops. I realized it would be possible for me too.
If I would have never seen people making money online, I wouldn't probably had even realized it's possible.
I Admire People Who Share Their Successes
One of the persons I highly admire is Grant Cardone. I don't probably agree with everything what he says but his work is truly unique.
The guy has a net worth of hundreds of millions of dollars or a billion and he's over 61 years old. He has a private jet, beautiful wife, 2 kids and basically everything a man could desire.
He could comfortably retire and live a comfortable life not working a second in his life anymore.
But instead of retiring, he records his life and inspires others to get to the next level. Still people criticize him for "showing off", lol.
I guess not many people know personally so successful people such as Grant Cardone. Now we have a chance to watch his life and realize anything is possible for anyone who works hard and goes all in.
Imagine a World...
Imagine a world where people would share their knowledge, learning experiences and "superpowers" so that everyone can benefit.
Imagine if we human beings could collectively help each other to make our lives better.
Imagine a world where every human being is part of one big team. When one person wins, everyone celebrates together.
Imagine what it would do to our quality of lives.
I think the level of progress in the world would skyrocket and everything would grow faster than ever...
Share Your Message to the World
You have something that others need.
Share it to the world.
Don't hold back.
Instead of keeping the blessing just for yourself, share it with others.
Have a killer weekend!
