One of the most important quotes I’ve ever heard in my life is this:
“Look at what the majority of people are doing, and do the exact opposite, and you’ll probably never go wrong for as long as you live”.
This quote is from Earl Nightingale, and it has changed my life.
It totally makes sense too, check out the numbers…
Majority of the people in the US are in debt, and less than 5% are actually financially free. And less that 1% makes over a million dollars.
Another interesting statistics: 95% of businesses fail within the first 5 years.
This doesn’t only apply to business, but it works for all other areas of life, whether it’s health, wealth, or relationships, you’ll learn that the majority is ALWAYS wrong.
How You Can Use This Information To Succeed Online:

Another example would be Article Marketing. Most people that write article try to leave out the ‘good stuff’. They reason out that ‘If I give most of the good stuff away, then people won’t buy from me’.
