Would you fly an airplane without a license? Say you didn't study for the exam. You didn't take the tests. ...Of course not, because you would crash and burn.
Let's say you were driving a car and you didn't know what a red light was. You'd probably get T-Boned in the middle of an intersection.
...If you're not taking your IM education seriously, then why would you expect to make money on the internet?
One ebook isn't going to do it.
One system isn't going to do it.
One tactic isn't going to do it.
One fundamental isn't going to do it.
A bag of tricks isn't going to do it.
...If you don't know all of the controls inside of an airplane. If you don't know how to take off... How to land... How to flip... Turn... Dive... Then your ignorance can kill you.
If you don't crack down and really learn, then expect to crash and burn.
