Get A Job & Stop I.M

Profile picture of the author socomplete by
I was talking with a friend of mine about what I do online and they pretty much said that I should get a real job. I was telling them about all of the different ways that a person could generate income and they listened and agreed with what I said but then they said you should get a job.

In the meantime my internet connection was lost and then I got it back, but before I lost it I started a new advertising campaign that brought me in $118.00 in revenue while I lost my internet connection for a few days.

Do you get discouraged when people don't believe in you?

    My mom told me... countless times this summer to go get a job...

    Eventually I just started showing her my 1k weeks, and that made everything better

    People don't believe in the world online, just remember... you'll have the nice car later, will they?

    They just try to force their belief system(how all is system, if you prefer ) on you
    "Greatest attractant of money is immunity to criticism" - Dan Kennedy

    I remember how once I was checking out some cars and found one I liked, it was a corvette and it cost something like 25,000$. I showed it to my friend and he said: "Stop dreaming about things like that, get down to earth..."

    I was shocked how his mindset was rooted in poverty. It was ~3 years ago and my mindset and beliefs have radically changed, but even back then nothing seemed impossible even if I was labeled a dreamer or just an idiot

    That is so true! I told my other friend that I don't want to be held down by a job that tells me when I can eat, when to be at work, when I can go on vacation, when I can talk, and what to do.

    I want to see my friends and family flying on private jets, going to the tropics. And she said " Yeah right like that will ever happen" Its almost like we are being programmed to think poor and accept a normal life.

    People who have a limited view of the possibilites for
    their own life will try to project those limitations onto
    you.

    In other words, people who can't see something as
    possible for themselves, tend to think it's not possible
    for you either.

    "Someone's opinion of you does not have to become
    your reality."
    Les Brown's Schoolteacher, Mr Washington

    Learn to listen to your own heart and pursue the
    vision you can see - regardless of what others say
    or think.

    Dedicated to your success,

    Shaun

    If you believe in yourself, that's all that matters! In fact to succeed in IM, you're really going to have to be your own self-motivator....People will try to get you to buy into their scarcity mentality. Don't do it! It's one of the worst plagues of humanity today!

    Maybe you should get a new set of friends to hang around. Either that or quit casting your pearls to swine. Not saying your friends are pigs but the biblical reference fits. When all your friends have jobs they'll attempt to pigeon hole you into doing the same. Instead hang out with entrepreneurs who value what you're attempting to do.

    Better advice is to : "Treat IM like a real job". The hourly pay is much better.

    I've been called the "village idiot" more than once (which has nothing to do with your question) but for some reason I've been w/out a "real job" for a loooonnnnng time. Go figure. Do what makes you happy, sir.

    Don't be discouraged by those people who says that you can't do it. Let their discouragements serve as an inspiration for you to keep on moving and pursuing what you believe in.

    If you really want to get rich, don't get a job. Create your own business. You'll never get rich working for your boss, you'll only make him richer.

    I'm often asked by people if I've got a job yet. Yes I do, and I've had it for the past two years thanks...

    When they say it, I tend to just say I like what I'm doing now and it is a job. Actually, I often tell them it's my own business to keep them quiet which it is of course!

    I do get discouraged sometimes, I'm sure many of us have moments where we question things due to outside pressure. But at the end of the day, most of the people I know are into the mindset of going to school/ college/ university then climbing the 9-5 career ladder. I was in that mindset too until I realised my degree means nothing and here I am - in the end I know what I am doing is 100% right for me.

    Those are going to be the same friends that when you are very successful wanting you to teach them how its done.

    Get used to it...

    I have been working 100% online since March of 2005, and my mother-in-law continues to nag me about how I need to get a "real job" to support my family...

    Even members of my own family have suggested the same... Including my wife, who knows how much I really make and spends those profits regularly... LOL

    only YOU need to believe in yourself, forget what others think. If you are driven and want to make it happen, then no one can stop you. Being realistic is also a good thing, if you are starving while doing IM, then get a part time job and keep doing IM.

    If I really cared about what my home town friends thought of me, I guess I'd have as boring a life as they do.

    It doesn't matter what other people think...it's what you think.

    If you think you will succeed or if you think you will fail, you would be correct on both counts. It is what you think.

    I think this is one of the best advices you can follow, there is and old Spanish saying that goes "Those who walk with wolves learn to howl" meaning that part of your reality is the type of people you hang around with, if you just hang around with employees, they will never understand anything about the things you are talking about, if you start talking to entrepreneurs, they wont be just listening to you, but sharing their experiences in how they create more wealth and freedom, and they will explain you better ways to do things, I am part of a mastermind with a lot of very successful entrepreneurs and I can tell you that has changed my life forever, do the same please.

    Hope it helps
