Here’s what I see with the majority of Internet marketer wannabes. They throw up a website and are very excited at the prospect of making easy money on the Internet. They spend a ton of money on information about the subject and begin to learn it and then realize that it’s not so easy after all. They find that it’s time consuming and a whole lot of work and nothing like they originally thought it would be. They think to themselves that they don’t want to do what they have learned because they don’t want to consume all of their time between working their day job and then have to spend a lot of hours to get their home based Internet marketing business running and making money. They become overwhelmed with all of the information coming at them and they finally quit and feel that they have been ripped off. The shame of it is that they spent all that time and money on a losing venture. It’s time for the marketer to take responsibility for his or her own actions. The failure never comes from the information that is given. It comes from within us. We fail because we choose to fail. I will admit that there is a lot of garbage information out there. However; there is a lot of straight forward information out there as well. Most Internet wannabes don’t want to use the real information because it’s too much work and it takes longer to make money going that route. Now that I have ranted, here’s the point. You have to stay focused and motivated to get where you want to go. No-one can teach you this but you can change your attitude about how you approach your online business. It takes more than just sitting down and learning how to run an online business. It takes focus, motivation, and dogged persistence. To stay focused and motivated you need to change the way that you think. Here are some things that may help you. If you have not done so, yet, set goals for yourself. Setting goals will help you visualize your overall goal and will help you to achieve it. If you think that between working a day job and running a home based internet business is too overwhelming, try to change that way of thinking because you will inevitably quit long before you ever make money. Tell yourself this. If I work long hours for a while, I will achieve my goals and will be able to quit my day job so that I can run my life and online business the way that I want to. I will have made a better life for myself and family and we will be able to do all the things that we always dreamed of doing. Tell yourself this over and over again and always keep it in the forefront of your mind. It will help keep you focused and motivated. The extra time and work that you will have to consume won’t sound so overwhelming if you have that train of thought. Unfortunately, 98% of marketing wannabes don’t think this way and never will because they simply don’t want to take the time or do the work. Those 98% deserve to fail. Don’t be one of them.
