Why am I such a failure This has been my taught for years but Am I?

23 replies
Why am I such a failure this has been my taught for years, when I see all the headlines of marketers making thousands of dollars per month.So today I was bored and decided to take some screen shots and I was surprised. I always taught I was completely failing online but today I realized that since online I have mad 5 figures "Wow" I had no idea, while it was not in a month like many other marketers, to me this is huge accomplishment.To be honest I now have a new outlook on things and feeling motivated.

MY Goal: Is to continue my journey this year and to make five figures a month.


Just a few of my screen shots below (my earning totaled over 20k)


How much have you made online and what steps did you take?



Edit: Please understand this amount was made over a 4 year period, this was not made in a year or two, When you earn money in small amounts at a time it is like the mind does not calculate the amount made over time. I have never made $2000 in a given month since my time online, so this post is just me realizing that although I do not make thousands per month like other marketers I did realize I had some success since being online.

    You're doing just fine. I've seen some join this forum who have been at it for years and haven't made even $100. Keep at it and no doubt more and more pieces of the puzzle are going to come together for you and you'll have that first 5-figure month before you know it.

      It really depends on what you class as being a failure.. I've failed at lots of IM things but I've still made a full time income in IM for the past 10 years.

      I would guess that you are probably in the top 20% of earners reading this post so in my book you are a success.

      You've proved that you can make money now just scale it up.

      Well Done!

    You have realized that you are a success. May be this was just for some well needed motivation. Go ahead.

      What are your Fiverrr gigs? I like to keep track of Warriors on Fiverr so that I can use them should I ever need their skills . . .

    You managed to make 5 Figures annually, good for you. That is not failure in any form. If you managed to see this type of income, it was because your subconscious was able to understand this dollar amount.

    Now if you can manage to 'see' 5 Figures PER Month while you follow through, you will surely reach your goal.

    But can you subconsciously 'see' making (10) times more per month?

    I know that would be too big if a gap for me personally, but if you know you can, go for it!

    I know a '7' Figure Earner who started out with a monthly income goal of $300 and somehow kept [increasing] after reaching each pinnacle.

    He managed to work his way up to over seven figures per year but did it in his 'mind' with baby steps.

    You are a success. Anyone making money whether it's 5 figures or 6...is a great accomplishment. Especially over at fiverr. Most of my experience with fiverr has been poor. I would like to know the type of gigs you are doing?

      On a side note ...you really need to edit that Title, "Why am I such a failure " ! That is an extremely negative and self defeating statement in of itself.

      If you do want to make this a full time endeavor start with doing that.

        You didn't notice you earned $20k? You didn't transfer that money to your account or spend it on anything? I doubt that.

        To post about your success - you don't have to start by talking about failure. There are many stages in between those two topics.

          What point are you trying to make? No I did not notice because this was not made in a month, this is the amount of money I have made since 2010, so it was in small chunks and bite sizes.

          Did you read my post at all, because based on what you stated I do not think you understand

          Why do you sound so negative? My only reason for creating this post is to share my taught, obviously I have nothing to gain or promote and that being said have a good day.

            I did not know you mean't that you only made $400 per month for the past 4 years or so. I thought you mean't you earned $20K in one year.

            Anyway, you still managed to make four hundred bucks! Good for you. That's a lot more than than 80% of the people who 'attempt' IM.

            Congrats!

            However, I think you are planning on making a 5 figure monthly income. I think that would be too much of a gap because your mind is used to making approximately $400 a month so that would mean you need to make 20 X more money per month.

            That may be too big of a gap.

            I would get your mind used to making that money more consistent and then gradually increasing your financial goals little by little.

          That's (a lot) more then 95% of people that give IM a try.

          It seems you provide some sort of service based on your Fiverr gig, services always work when you have a place to offer them. I always recommend people to do something with services when they ask me as that's where the guaranteed money is and much easier then going the other way around like starting some blog and hoping for the traffic to follow.

    good.. i am making good income online but not from affiliate or cpa or teespring like others,,i have my own website doing nearly $2-3k per month(which is more than enough for me for the country i live in) in coaching about my well known techniques for last 3-4 month..

    I hadnt had any success through any other form of IM till now..i have been learning a lot but still a long way to go..
    my tip will be if you can do fiverr gig then u sud have a specialized website where you can charge 10 times what you charge on fiverr and fiverr gigs would help as proof of the outstanding work you are doing..
