Trying to make money online is tough, for many reasons. If you are reading this, then you may well be considering throwing the towel in. If you think that you’ve had enough, then you may as well close your browser down now and turn the television on.
Still with me? Great!
That’s all we need – the small ounce of staying power that still exists in you. We can develop that into something much stronger. As long as there is still a scrap of determination left in you, we can exploit it to better your chances of success.
Losing Enthusiasm? This Article Isn’t For You
This article is for those who are way beyond the concept of enthusiasm. I will soon be writing an article on that subject, but not today. For now, I want to address the more intrinsic issues behind your strong desire to give up. I can spend all day telling you to persist and work hard, but by now, you will probably feel like those paths are well worn by the dusty boot heels of your failure.
Making Money Online Is A Hopeless Venture
That is absolutely true for every single person who has tried and given up. It clearly was a hopeless venture for them, as they reached their breaking point without experiencing the requisite level of success. For everyone else who is still trying, making money online is possible, you just have to figure out how.
The Formula For Success
In logical terms, success is achieved by executing a very simple formula:
Endeavour + Competence + Time = Success
You can translate that formula into three steps:
- Undertake to succeed
- Carry out that undertaking with adequate ability
- Follow steps 1 and 2 until success is achieved
If you do not succeed, then you did not apply yourself properly and/or did not apply yourself for long enough. It is that simple.
Knowing When To Change Tack
I often talk of persistence, but there does come a point when you have beaten a venture to death. If you are certain that whatever you are doing is not going to reap sufficient rewards, then consider a change of tack. The ability to recognise when you will not be able to achieve your goals is extremely valuable. It will help enormously – giving up will not.
Are You SURE You Can’t Make Money Online?
If you have read this far and still think it is impossible, fine. I will not try to persuade you otherwise. However, I do want you to consider three questions:
- Are you happy with your personal situation?
- Do you enjoy your job?
- Do you have as much money as you would like?
Why do I ask these questions? Because making money online, executed correctly, can positively affect all three areas. If you are sure that you cannot succeed in your online venture, then what is going to replace it as your ticket to improving all three areas of your life? If there is nothing, then you are giving up on far more than simply making money.
If you have decided that making money online isn’t for you, then you need to find what is. If you want to improve your quality of life, then you will need to work at it, regardless of circumstance. Find something that can catapult you to better things.
Or, simply exist and accept what you have, and try to find peace in that. Not my preferred option.
There is no person in this world that is as happy or successful as he or she possibly can be. There is always room for personal improvement. I strongly believe that anyone can carve out a niche for themselves. It does not have to be making money online. You could find happiness and fulfillment in youth coaching, plumbing, or business consultancy. Who knows? The point is, if you haven’t found that niche, then by halting your efforts, you are giving up on the potential for a higher quality of life, and accepting the status quo.
I’ll Leave You With A Question
What would you rather do – frustrate yourself trying damn hard to make things better for yourself, or simply accept that you will never be content?
