Every year more and more people are coming online to become the next internet millionaire. They have high expectations and think they will be making money in no time. Well, if you are one of those people, I am going to give you 5 reasons why you aren’t making money online so you can save yourself a lot of time and embarrassment.
1) No Ambition
You are trying to find a way to do nothing all day and still make money. Good luck with that! It’s not going to happen. If it was really that easy then everyone would do it and we would all be rich. Yes, there is such a thing as passive residual income, but it takes a lot of time and hard work before you can reap the rewards of that.
2) You Have a Lot to Learn
You might have graduated from Harvard at the top of your class but that doesn’t mean you know anything about making money online. Learning about all the various ways to make money online in addition to the many internet marketing strategies, and everything else involved with running an online business isn’t going to happen overnight. There’s a steep learning curve involved before you can become successful.
3) You Need a Mentor (or a better one)
You either don’t have anyone successful to mentor you, or you are currently listening to the wrong person. There are several internet marketing gurus and A-list bloggers that beginners always seem to find somehow. The only problem is the majority of them don’t actually teach you anything useful about how to make money online. And if they do they expect you to pay astronomical amounts of money for a small amount of their time, or buy their new products that they come out with constantly.
If you really want to learn how to make money online you must follow people that will give you useful information without trying to sell you a new product every week. Find someone who truly wants to help you and see you succeed. Yes, you might have to pay them for their time. They need to make a living too, but you shouldn’t have to pay insane amounts of money for very little in return. There are also plenty of internet marketers who give out all the information you need for free on their blogs.
4) You Aren’t Listening
When you are actually given quality useful information by someone who truly knows internet marketing, you don’t listen to them for whatever reason. In order to be successful at making money online, you need to listen when other successful people give you useful advice. Don’t just shrug it off because it can be the difference between success and failure.
5) You Have No Patience
You’re trying to get rich quick and that is a losing battle. There are a few ways to make money online fast but most of them are unsustainable and only bring in small amounts at a time. Certainly not the amount of money you can make a living from. You need to realize right away that earning a living on the internet is an uphill marathon, not a downhill dash. There are very few rare exceptions to this rule so chances of you being the one are slim to none. If you don’t have a lot of patience you will get frustrated and quit.
Don’t take this article personally. The point of it is to explain some top reasons why many people are unable make money online even though they come into it with the best of intentions. Avoid getting sucked into these pitfalls and you will have a much better chance at becoming one of the success stories who are able to make their living online!
