I have struggled in making consistent amount of money but recently it seems like I have a breakthrough. I know it isn't much and there are many people who are earning much more then me, but right now I am pretty motivated to work harder on building my internet business empire.
I felt lost and confused for most part of my journey. I spent my hard earned money on products, ebooks and spent ton of my time signing up for free newsletter to learn more about internet marketing.
The gurus sometimes make it sound a bit too easy to earn some extra income online or even build an empire online. Each and everyday I doubt more of what they said. Deep in my heart I know making money online is possible, however it is hard work and not as easy as they make it up.
There are times (many times in fact) I want to give up and just stick to my studies and work hard to get a great paying job. This seems like a much easier choice to make instead of slogging hard everyday without knowing whether I will get any results from internet marketing.
I didn't give up. I knew it is going to work. I endure months of not making any sales from my little website but I just kept on plugging at it.
However, recently I started to have a little success (consistent sales). The effort that I put into the website for nearly 9 months finally start to give me some rewards!
Even though my site isn't ranking high in Google, I managed to make some sales by using other methods of getting Traffic such as Ezine Articles, other article directories and social bookmarking.
I know there is much more potential for growth and more income to be made if I work harder on the site and my mindset. I knew I didn't work as hard as I could and I could have make a lot more sites to make me money instead of just building just one.
The recent consistent sales had sparked my passion again and I'm going to continue to work harder and smarter on my internet business. I want to borrow my recent success to help others who are struggling like me.
No matter what, don't give up. Keep on sowing and you will definitely reap at the harvest. I know its hard, everybody tells us it is easy but I know it is not as easy as it seems. But don't let the obstacles stop you from achieving what you truly want. Remember the reasons that get you started into internet marketing. You need these reasons to help you pull through the tough time.
Last but not least, remember to work on your mindset. Most people fail in internet marketing because they did not work on their mindset. Read books on personal development, learn about setting goals, focus, discipline and other life skills that you need to create your online empire. Keep on going and I hope we can achieve the success that we want together.
