The Goal of Fear

There was once a traveler on a dark country road late at night, no moon, no stars, full dark.

Except for the car headlights. But they only illuminated the road for several feet…the destination could not be seen.

The traveler in his fear pulled over to the side of the road. While it felt safer, the traveler realized he would never get to his destination sitting by the side of the road.

He decided to trust the little bit of light from his headlights and move forward. And sure enough, as he moved forward, so did his headlights, and he got to his destination, knowing he could do it again…

The goal of fear is to make you ineffective. Make you freeze up. Pull over to the side of the road. Not move. Stay stuck.

The cure for fear is action. Go as far as you can see, even if that is only the next step, because the next step is movement. And because steps taken reveal the next steps. fear, jeff herring, action

    What an inspiring story, I would like to use this story to focus on the journey of using Article Marketing Strategies to promote your business. Many times I have share the thought that article marketing is a long term plan for your business.

    It is time we learn to TRUST article marketing as one of the best online business marketing strategies. Like the driver who parks the car on the roadside because he cannot trust his headlights, many people who venture into article marketing give up just before they reach the threshold.

    One good example is the writing and submission of unique content on daily basis. An avid Article marketer should be keen to adopt a daily plan for content development and publishing.

    It is important that you do not give up even if little is coming from your effort in article marketing. You will definitely reap the fruits at a much later date.

    With the recent drop of the subscribers of social media more remain to be seen on the effects to the article marketing arena.
