What wrestling can teach you about YouTube
I had unrealistic expectations when I started out on YouTube.
I thought I could upload a video on a popular game and it would get a bunch of views – easily…
Like most people, I was waiting for my time to “blow up” or get “discovered”.
Waiting for someone to save me…
Then I realised something interesting…and professional wrestling is a great example of this idea…
Here’s the thing:
Everyone can’t be the champion.
If everyone is a champion then the title means nothing, right?
You can aim to be the champion, sure.
But RELYING on that? That’s not the smartest thing to do.
There’s a small chance of you becoming the WWE champion…
You could spend YEARSSSS working your butt off and STILL not get to wrap that gold around your waist.
It’s the same with YouTube…(think of the title belt as 1 Million subscribers)
But, there’s good news:
You don’t HAVE to be the champion to make a living…
You CAN make a living and you don’t need to wait until you’re FAMOUS to do that.
What if you could work doing something you love?
You can be the champion of YOUR thing…
And, when you do something you love…work feels less like work…
But, I’m not going to lie to you:
It’s STILL work.
There is no super easy path where you can sit back, do nothing AND be successful.
That’s not realistic.
Many legendary wrestling champions completely destroyed their bodies…doing dangerous and bone breaking stunts…
If you’re willing to make the sacrifices…you may end up wearing that belt around your waist with your arm raised in the air…
But, nobody starts out as a superstar champion.
Everybody starts out being a jobber.

What is a jobber?
And, why is YouTube not a job?
The video below will reveal all the above and give you some important insight in how you should be approaching your YouTube channel if you want to make a living from it…
