Feel Handicapped in Internet Marketing? No Arms, No Excuses

It was 2012. Ordinary day... except, it was my first time outside the Philippines. Me & Dj Roy were walking down this street in Mongkok, Hong Kong... and we saw a scene that I'll never forget:

There in front of us was a man without an arm

He was making these artificial flower with clays, sticks and some small trinkets... using... what's left of his arms

He did this live in front  of people at the night market area

He successfully made a work of art in just around 3 minutes or so - luckily, I had my video cam with me to capture the moment

I was enjoying the scene with the crowd when suddenly, these words suddenly occurred to me. . .

"No Arms, No Excuses"

. . . Excuses! Excuses!

Confession time - when I fail to do something I'm expected to do, I almost always have the urge to make an excuse for it. . .

But here in front of me is a man that defies what others might see as tragedy

If you analyze it closely, an excuse is a self-destructive alibi for having failed to do something, especially when it involves attaining a goal

This is harmful because instead of trying to find ways to continue achieving a goal, enormous energey is wasted by looking for excuses

Look. . . even a handicap cannot be used as an excuse

Many handicapped (but determined) people have become achievers and champions. Instead of using a handicap as an excuse, let us turn it into an asset

Let us explore this further

A handicap need not be a reason for failure

On the contrary, a handicap can be a reason for success

People with a handicap always have an offsetting strength that allows them to overcome problems better than others

A person with a handicap has one obsession - to lead a normal life. Depending on the handicap, a person would prefer to be as independent as possible

So he struggles and finds ways to overcome his impediment. When he is able to achieve his goal, this raises his self-esteem. In turn, he inspires others

Everybody has handicaps in varying forms and degrees

That is why; it requires effort and determination to overcome them. Handicaps can either be physical, financial, or emotional

And they can either be real or imagined

Whenever we look at a handicap, we almost always look on the negative side only. It’s about time we take a look at the positive side of it

The positive side may be the difficult side, but it’s the one worth looking into. It’s the side that is going to lead us to excel in life

If you think your handicap is physical, like having a weak body, you can counteract this through proper diet and training exercises

As long as the physical parts of your body are intact and mobile, there’s no reason why you cannot make it strong and useful


Even those without a leg (for example) can be made to walk or run normally. With the advancement of science, artificial legs can help a handicap function with great mobility

It your handicap is financial, then the more reason you have to rise above your present status

And if your financial status limits your educational attainment to improve your life, the school is not the only place to learn. Certainly, there are help centers to get you started even from zero level

Once you are initially warmed up with the basics of an education, the rest is up to you

Make use of libraries. Once you are educationally equipped, use your brain and come up with creative ideas to improve your life

If you are emotionally disturbed with negative thoughts, it is like you are sitting on a chair with wobbling legs. Try sitting on a chair with sturdy legs; meaning, look at the bright, positive side of life

Like it or not... people will tell you to:

Put aside negativity and start thinking positively

"The only one who can stop you is yourself"

If your handicap is a combination of any of the physical, financial, or emotional type, congratulations

You should strive more to overcome them, because a double layer of perseverance results to more than double the achievement

Where the odds are greater, the prize gets much bigger. After all the efforts you have exerted, the prize of success shall be a well-deserved one

So what’s your excuse for not pushing your internet marketing product, or business to the next level?

Do you want to get rid of that excuse?

If yes, when?

If you got rid if it, what would be your next move?

When are you going to implement your next move?

Hope you learn from this "no arms and no excuses" man same as I did


P.S. Of course I won't be like the other guys who'll tell you some words of wisdom and scram - I won't leave you hanging just like that

Let me give you the opposite of handicap - and "advantage" if you will:

I recently published a blog post called "Self-Published Author Hack"... for Rookies - read it it you haven't already (click to open in new tab)

In that post, you discover why I think it's important you get "this co-authorship deal from a certified best-selling author" to give you an instant advantage

P.P.S. Here's another "instant advantage" recommendation, now in relation to taking your share in the hungry graphics niche

My friend, Jeremiah Villagomez, also from the Philippines, just released Private Label Rights to one of his best-selling products

Now, this means you can have a "done for you business" using "designers of the gurus level work" --- as your own product (re-sell it for 100% profit)
