Here is an example:
Many like the idea of earning an income online. They are so excited about the idea but when it comes to paying for this info and needing to put in the effort, they kind of turn their back on the opportunity and run away.
Here's a portion of a conversation that I had with a person who had a burning desire to work at home online but turned their back when they heard that work needs to be done and money needed to be invested. It went something like this.....
The other person: "Hi, how do I start making money online."
Me: "Why do you want to earn an income online?"
The other person: "I want to be able to leave my job and spend more time at home. This is what I want."
Me: "OK, here is what you have to do. You need to join this program and it will teach you how to make a full time income online. This is the same program that has helped me make a full time income. It requires a one time fee."
The other person: "Oh, it costs money? Don't you have something that I don't have to pay for. I don't want to invest any money at all."
Me: "Not only do you have to invest money if you want to make money online but you will also have to invest your time and effort on a daily basis"
The other person: "What?"
The fact is that if a person wants to make money online, he or she will need to invest some money, time, and effort. You will not find anyone online who has made good amounts of money for no effort on their part.
If you come across a program that tells you, "Make $10,000 a month with no money or any effort" then I am here to tell you that you should run away as fast as you can. It is a scam.
Below are the 3 characteristics of real winners.
1. Take Action
If you find a good and honest work at home opportunity that will help you make money online, don't just think about getting it later. If you keep putting things off, you are really a procrastinator. Procrastination is the opposite of action taking. Get into a program, and follow what ever instructions are there. Take the necessary actions everyday.
Again, thinking of doing things is not enough. You have got to take action on a daily basis. Look at me for example, if I wouldn't get into the habit of writing articles on a daily and weekly basis, my Internet business wouldn't be as successful as it is today.
2. Staying Persistent
Things are not always going to go smoothly in your venture to making money on the Internet. You will always have some ups and more downs. What ever happens, never give up.
If one thing does not work out for you, test something else.
3. Use books to help you grow
Many people that I know and have succeeded online by reading books. Books that talk about Internet marketing and books that talk about motivation. Some negative people don't think that it is necessary to grab a book about these topics and that it why you will see many people fail when it comes to earning an income on the web.
When ever you have a chance, grab a motivational book or even a book that talks about earning money online. Education and self education is the number 1 key to online success.
