Get A Job & Stop I.M

by socomplete 203 replies
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?

      Very true Caleb. Most family members I talk to don't believe in making money online yet alone understand it. "Money talks" though

    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

      Ha. Very similar here - i have the leaflet / spec thing of a Lamborghini on my desk next to my computer , so whenever i do IM stuff i can see it and visualize it. I went into the showroom to get the leaflet. I am 100% convinced i will get one sooner rather than later.

      Anyways people always ask why i have that brochure on my desk - as if it's not in my reach. I tell people i will get one soon and they all think i am nuts.

      Don't look to MAKE money - look to HELP people and you will make all the money you can ever want.

    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.

      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

      I'm sorry I disagree with this kind of mindset.

      Yes, everyone always tells me to get a job because they just don't get it.

      However, true friends will let you be who you are, without meddling. My true friends are like that. I'm not going to stop hanging out with my lifelong friends just because they aren't internet entrepreneurs.

      Business is business. Friends are friends.

      This may well be some of the best advice on this thread (although it's all pretty good).

      Who you associate with is crucial. If you have to hang out with people like the ones you mentioned, then try and 'turn down the volume' on them a little. By that, I mean either ignore their whining, or call them out on it. Most people moan for the sake of it because they're too scared to nail their colours to the mast and declare what they want.

      Ideally, you'll just stop hanging out with them as much. Those people are what a friend of mine calls 'Psychic Vampires'. They're too much effort and they'll cost you your success.

      Thats good advice and bad advice, We do need to be around like minded individuals who share the same goals and dreams in life but we should never abandon our friends. If they are just an acquaintance it's not so bad though. We need to help them change their thinking and if we cannot just learn to accept them for who they are as we expect them to do for us.

    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.
