    What have you got to offer someone else?

    Maybe look at offering a service on Fiverr - as a virtual assistant or something like that?

    Another option could be to monetize your hobbies or interests - what are you good at? What do you enjoy doing?

    You can change your life, but it won't happen overnight and you have to stick with something, even during the days when things look bleak (there are many).

    I've also tried selling t-shirts, and drop shipping... neither were right for me, so I know where you're coming from.

      Hi, Thank you for replaying my comment, I tried Fiver and freelancer to work as a translator, but it seems to me that people looking for someone who has reviews. I always ask me self how can I have reviews if they don't give me a chance and choose me to do their work. I hope to find my way and I hope seem to you. I really appreciate your time Michael Meaney.

    Take a deep breath Tawzar. The journey is tough at the beginning sometimes...but...accept this idea: in order to make money online, you have to patiently practice developing your skills, every day, for many months. Then, for years.

    Unless you are willing to pick 1-2 successful mentors in your niche, learn from them, and practice developing skills, it makes sense to work a job for a while - unless you already are - build up your savings, and enter the online world from a relaxed, chill, calm space.

    Look at successful entrepreneurs. Each spent years learning, practicing, developing skills in terms of writing, ad copy, list building and network.....then they used those skills to solve a specific problem, suffered by their ideal customer.

    That's the key. Learn from the best, practicing, for months and years, then gradually earning money.

      I will never stop learning no matter what I try to develop my self everyday. You are right ryanbiddulph, but the problem is that these people who are successful they don't ever answer, when I ask them only one question they never answer, they are busy all the time. However, I always ask Google the only source I have.

    Tawzar...we have all been there.

    Learn from my experience...

    When I first got started, I was just expecting way too much...to fast.

    Another problem was that I wasn't holding my focus long enough to succeed in any area.

    You Tried some good ideas (and they still can work for you), but they will take some time to manifest.

    How about just sticking to ONLY (1) idea until you start getting results?

    Now you seem to also have a belief issue.

    So did I!

    How did that change for me?

    By reading personal development books ( for at least half an hour per day).

    This rewires your mind to start 'serving' you (instead of working against you).

    A lot of people trying to succeed in this industry believe this 'self help' stuff is just BS.

    It really isn't.

    Improving your mindset is the most important thing. Once you change yourself, your circumstances will change too.

    With regard to Fiverr, it does take a while to get some clients and reviews, but it will work eventually. One thing to do is to list as many gigs as you can do. Maybe get a friend to order a gig and leave an honest review. Also, don't forget there are many freelance sites apart from Fiverr, so list your gigs elsewhere too.

    To me it sounds like you are all over the place. You need to concentrate on one thing that you have some knowledge on and at least some passion towards ( it's good but not always a necessity to have a passion)

    Try to break even in a few months and just build on that confidence. Later on you can delve into other stuff

    WOW, Tawzar,

    Honestly, at this moment in time, changing your mindset about yourself needs to be your first priority!

    A couple of others already touched on it. Especially Rory Singh who mentioned you should start reading some self help materials (I personally prefer the audios, instead of books, because I don't have as much time to read these days)

    But your original post speaks volumes...

    I understand you're feeling somewhat depressed at the moment, because things aren't working out for you, but you really need to start focusing on changing your internal language. Because the words you use about yourself have a huge impact on your life.

    Look at the pieces I bolded from your original post, and think about it... if another person was to speak to you this way, and call you useless or good for nothing, how long would you want to keep that person as a friend? And how much help would you be willing to offer that person with their success in life? (Personally, I'd want to kick them out of my life in a hurry)

    So start by becoming your own best friend by changing your language... and start encouraging yourself, instead of degrading yourself.


    As long as you start believing in yourself, the setbacks you're going through right now are temporary growing pains... nothing more.

    You can achieve greatness. And there are plenty of people in this world who will help you on your journey (some of them are right here on this forum) But you need to start believing in yourself first. And part of that revolves around how you speak to yourself, and the words you use to describe yourself.

    I truly wish you the best of success in your life's adventure. Even though we haven't met... I believe in you.

    All the best,
    SAR

      SAR, I don't know how to thank you, your speech make me think twice. I'm so strong and I believe I can do it, but sometime I feel down but after readying all of you, you really encourage me and inspire me to never get lost anymore. I hope I find the people like to help at least by saying this motivating words.

    It sounds like you are jumping around too much.

    Start by picking one method and one traffic source and work on learning them well. Can you share any more details on what you've tried? Perhaps based off this we can recommend next steps.

    Wow I was really surprised to see such good and thoughtful comments aiming to truly answer you question and your challenges.

    I would agree most that you must focus to become skilled in one thing and not spread yourself to thin. The concept of Multiple Income streams is a death trap(unless you are a professional as paid media).

    We always talk about providing value to other as a key to developing relationships and eventually sales. This is 100% the most important element to creating trust and beneficial business contacts.

    When it comes to delivering value always remember the most valuable thing you have to offer other person is you! You have value to offer..believe it!!! if you listen and give what people want most, you attention.

    Stick to one main focus and give of yourself as much as possible. Be a go-giver and your fortunes will turn.

      That's what I will do I will focus in one thing only until I succeed in it. Thank you so much Frankandres.

    You got some real useful feedback (I am not surprised).

    But hopefully you follow what you feel is real useful advice.

    Here is some more of my suggestions...

    Start telling yourself good stuff. We can be our own worse enemies (and the most critical).

    Other people can put us down or boost our Egos.

    But what goes on between our very own ears is what makes all the difference in the world.

    There is a 97% failure rate in this industry.

    And the main reason is the majority is too stubborn to 'change' their minds and mindset.

    Trust me I have been there.

    But things slowly changed as I changed slowly.

    The change does not happen outside of us but within.

    97% would think what I just said is bullshit.

    People think they are here just to make money.

    But in truth...they are here to change and transition into the better version of themselves through reading.

    They are here for mind training.

    How?

    Personal Development.

    Yes skills and experience make a big difference but no one will get to that point until they change what's going on between their ears.

    Lastly...

    What's with that avatar?

    I love cats and dogs but that cat looks really lost and sad.

    You may want to change that avatar into what you are in the process of becoming.

    To enhance your shot at success, try and avoid these 2 important mistakes when starting an online business.

    Focusing too much on the little stuff.
    "First, you need to get your business off the ground," says Steve Tobak, founder of Invisor Consulting, a business strategy firm, and author of Real Leaders Don't Follow: Being Extraordinary in the Age of the Entrepreneur. While this directive may seem obvious, new business owners can get really bogged down by the details. Don't do this.

    By getting sidetracked focusing on things like how your business cards look or the design of your logo, founders are wasting valuable time. Instead, concentrate on tasks that will help propel your business to the next level.


    Be optimistic -- just not about money. "There's a very good chance that your company will run out of money before it makes any," cautions Tobak. "Know how much cash you've got to run your business, what your burn rate is and make sure that you have a plan to try to get more before you run out."

    Too often business owners scramble to raise funds when it's already too late. Instead, founders from the get-go should create a financial plan, detailing milestones and how much money it will take to reach these goals.
