I was at a business summit over the weekend and one of the featured speakers was none other than internet marketing legend, Frank Kern. Frank is incredibly successful and leads the penultimate "internet lifestyle."
Oh, and make money while he sleeps, eats, and shits. Seriously. He didn't say that, but that's what happens.
In his 1-hour-plus "presentation," Frank delivered the following wisdom, in the form of what he called the "Kern Kommandments" —
- Thou shalt not fuck around
- Thou shalt not be a pussy
Pretty much sums up life, doesn't it? And I say "presentation" in quotes because he came–according to Frank himself–totally unprepared.
But he delivered a remarkable presentation that he's probably given a dozen times.
So what do those 2 commandments mean? First, don't mess around. Get to it. Set goals and pursue them without hesitation and with the vigor and passion of a man (or woman) committed.
Second, when it comes to doing difficult things, don't wuss out. Don't cower. Tackle stuff head-on. Heck, the easy stuff is easy; anybody can do it. What separates the average from the extraordinary is the extraordinary figure out how to get the hard stuff done. They don't run away from a fight; rather, they attack.
I loved the presentation and the message Kern delivered. This stuff can be applied to anybody that's been successful.
