There was a thread today where someone asked is "....." really possible.
Now, the method isn't what I want to talk about - the real thing that stood out was the amount of negative comments.
Not negative necessarily is a nasty or aggressive way - but just listing reasons why it isn't or couldn't be true.
Now, I know there are a lot of scammers around and plenty of people who are lining up to sell you regurgitated crap just to make a buck - I'm not going to pretend that's not true.
However, in a place like this where people come for inspiration and to revel in the success of others and get motivated to create their own - there are a LOT of people who get their Buts out whenever an example is given.
They come along the lines of:
"But, I bet they're paying people to do the work"
"But, that's ok if you have the money to do it"
"But, it probably doesn't work any more"
But, but, but, but, but.
These are all just excuses for why they think THEY couldn't get the results being suggested.
It's a FACT that people are making money all over the Internet in thousands of different ways - every minute of every day.
If YOU are not - that has nothing to do with what's possible.
I know a LOT of people that make significant money online - When someone says "is it possible to make $10k a month" of course I'm not going to argue - I KNOW that it's a realistic possibility for almost anyone.
If they is $100k possible - Yeah, it's possible - of course, but the list of people doing it is much smaller, but sure it's possible.
In the thread I was reading, it consisted pretty much entirely of people who hadn't bought the product/method and had already decided it was impossible.
That really surprises me.
So - most of the comments were that it wasn't possible - or a list of buts.
How did we get to this point?
Surely - the default answer is - Yes, of course it's POSSIBLE - but the devil's in the details, so you need to do due diligence on any product or person trying to sell you the solution.
But the default position seems to be - It's impossible and don't trust anyone who says it is.
Surely most people here want to make that sort of money and are actively looking for ways to do it??
Have we really reached the point now where so many people are failing that every mention of success is viewed with skepticism?
As a member here you do realise that there are many fellow members making a nice living online - don't you?
This isn't just a chat room where people 'talk about' making money but don't do it.
Where's the line at? how much can someone say is possible before you kick back and argue that it's not? Do you really think there's a limit to what you can make?
