Life lessons from the band KISS!

3 Aug
I was driving today playing music on random from my iPhone, as I usually do, and a KISS song came on. I think it is the only KISS song I have in my music collection titled “God Gave Rock and Roll to You”.I didn’t realize but this song, released by KISS in 1991, is a cover version of an earlier song, with altered lyrics, released by a British band named Argent back in 1973. KISS

As I started “Rocking Out” as I usually do when driving, I started paying attention to the lyrics, particularly the following:

“If you wanna be a singer, or play guitar
Man, you gotta sweat or you won’t get far
Cause it’s never too late to work nine-to-five
You can take a stand, or you can compromise
You can work real hard or just fantasize
But you don’t start livin’ till you realize –
I gotta tell ya!

God gave rock and roll to you”

How true this is, especially when it comes to Internet Marketing!

So many people think they can get into Internet Marketing, and overnight earn more than a doctor or a lawyer. People forget that doctors and lawyers put in huge effort to reach the level of success and income they receive, often 10 years or more expensive education.

Although Internet Marketing does not require 10 years of training to start making money you still need to put in the time and effort, learn the techniques, fail, get up, then fail again until you start to succeed.

Like KISS says, “Man, you gotta sweat or you won’t get far, Cause it’s never too late to work nine-to-five. You can take a stand, or you can compromise, You can work real hard or just fantasize, But you don’t start livin’ till you realize!”

The path to success is full of twists and turns, ups and downs, hard work and the occasional good luck. Keep at it my friends, never give up, and you will reach the levels of success that you desire.

I never thought I would say this but “Thank you KISS”. 🙂

  1. Hi Steven,

    Being a musician myself I certainly appreciate this application! 🙂

    One of the big illusions in making money online is that of being able to do with with little or no work. Sure, it can be possible, but only after establishing a working system or if you hit upon a fluke. Otherwise, just like any other kind of business, you have to put in the hard work, otherwise you won’t get anywhere.

    So many give up because they can’t hack putting in the work for little to no return at the beginning, but sticking with it consistently is absolutely essential in order to really get anywhere.

    I first heard the KISS version of the song when it was used in the end credits for the film, “Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey”. I knew it was a cover of Argent, but I actually prefer the KISS version myself.

    And yes, it’s now going round and round my head! 😉

  2. Thank you Steve (and KISS!!) Never a truer word spoken (or written in this case). If you aren’t prepared to put in the effort and the work, fail and succeed, you will never have your dreams fulfilled.
    Anything worth doing is worth doing well. Small steps in the direction are better than no steps at all.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. There is all kinds of great advice in rock music. Get up…Dust yourself off…Pick something new…Go for it!!! If what you picked doesn’t work out then pick out something else and go for it!!!

    I have been studying Internet Marketing for all most 3 years now. I have only made right around $1,000.00 so far. Where there is $1,000.00… there is $100,000.00…and where there is $100,000.00…there is $1,000,000.00. I will not give up!!!…I will not quit!!!…I will win!!!
