Lightbulb Let's be honest, you're doing it wrong!

Let me guess, you are feeling unmotivated, lethargic and unfocused? You can't get yourself to work? But are you actually doing what you want to do?

In order to become successful, you don't have to do affiliate marketing, you don't have to create products in the Internet Marketing industry, you don't have to follow a set business model!

Success is not the same for everyone, for you, success may be defined as have a substantial amount of finance in the bank. For me personally, success is the freedom to be able to work for myself and experience new things as I travel the world. Success is defined by our core values, things we naturally want to achieve.

And in order to get those things, we need to work hard. If your vision of success requires a financial backing and you are wanting to set up a business, you are going to need to put the effort in. But it is up to you to decide where your energy is going to be spent.

Many Internet Marketers who are in the "Make Money Online" niche seem to be pressuring new comers to follow set business models and claiming their products are guaranteed path to financial freedom. You don't have to listen to them.

The best path I can recommend to success is to look at your choices, analyse the different ways money can be made. Study carefully and even try a little of everything. Find something you are interested in!

If you can, and you will be able to, find something that gets you excited. Working the hours will become a time that you look forward to.

I used to focus my time and resources on areas of Internet Marketing that frankly didn't appeal to me, I did so because all of the advertisement and reports I had seen had created a paradigm within me that was actually holding me back!

Recently, I let go of that paradigm, I made a paradigm shift of sorts. I spent a couple of days trying out different areas and I found something that excites me. I have grown a custom to development, I had done some before, but it was when I analysed in detail that I really got interested in learning more.

Since discovering an area that interests me, my attitude towards work has dramatically changed. I now find myself spending much of my free time reading and learning new areas of web development.

I learnt that I should be listening to myself rather than so called gurus. I feel better, and I am seeing more results. Even while being very new to the coding world I have already signed up a couple of clients.

The moral of this thread is to try and explain that by focusing your time on a subject that interests you, success becomes easier to achieve.

I hope you all have a great day!

I am off back to learn some more about PHP

I agree totally, I didn't realise it until I tried it! It's an obvious solution to beat procrastination and I think it's taken for granted!

Great share Joe! I think what you've written can be applied to the world outside of internet marketing too. There are far too many people that perform averagely in jobs they don't enjoy just to pay the bills and these people often let other people in their lives make their career decisions for them (parents are often extremely influential in this respect). Both my housemates are TEFL teachers - they both hate teaching. It's not like they make a bucket load of money either. So why do it? I know the economy in many countries is bad and many people would say you are lucky if you have a job, but I see a lot of people using that as an excuse. In reality everyone still has a choice! It's a proven fact that if you do something you enjoy, the results are generally better and much more fulfilling.

Great to hear this thread was of interest to you! It so sad to see people wasting their life just by sticking to their comfort zone. They say they are happy with getting by and they fear the thought of chasing their dreams!

Thanks for commenting man!

Great to hear buddy! I believe with all the "nonsense" in the Internet Marketing world it becomes super easy to lose track of what we enjoy. I also think that it can be difficult for some to find something that interests them! You just have to keep trying things out until you find something and then work on it till the results start coming in! Which at times can feel a bit too long.

I agree totally and after writing it I had a moment of realisation where a couple of things in other areas of my life became clear. You are right, people seem to settle for the bare minimum when they can achieve so much more! The possibilities are endless and people must remember that! The saying "You only live once" is very true, but people sometimes realise that when it's too late!

I agree with your concept that people use the economy as an excuse, the human race is scared of change and it's easier to settle for average than to risk things to end up with better results. Nice to hear a positive voice! Never lose your enthusiasm, I know so many people that see life as a negative thing when the truth of the matter is, they themselves are making it that way! I can tell that if your action is in toll with your voice, success will be a very short road for you!
