I recently crossed the threshold into affiliate marketing fossildom; namely, turning 30 years old. For an industry as young as internet marketing is proving to be, it feels two ticks to the right of ancient.
But I digress.
Allow me 60 seconds of your time to distill a myth that I bought into, hard and heavy, for most of my twenties. It is a complete waste of time.

Seriously. Read it again.
While rummaging through some old papers early this morning I stumbled on a quote I kept on the cork board above my desk in college.
I thought it practicable when I was 19, but in rereading I find so much more truth to it today, ten years worth of life experiences later.
“The longer I live, the more important I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me , is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than successes, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home.
