This mindset is very likely what's killing you and preventing your rise to success. The rise is usually pretty slow. That's the reality. So, strive to become a good, dependable base hitter. If you're on base, you're a scoring threat.
OK, enough with the sports analogies. The point is to focus in really tightly on one way to make some money online. I mean really focus. To the exclusion of anything else. 99 times out of 100, this will mean a little bit of money. That's how it goes in this business. You're not likely to start killing it in your first couple months in IM. Not even in your first year for most of us.
Accept that. I'm not saying you shouldn't have big dreams. You absolutely SHOULD dream big! I'm saying you need to taste small success at one thing. Figure out the A to Z process that brings in a profit, whatever it is you're doing. Don't wander off to something else. Don't quit before you're really done (ie, making some money or totally failing).
People who get to the point of making a little bit of money often don't realize the potential they've just discovered. From that moment on, you have a potential business on your hands. Get serious then. Eat, breathe, and sleep that one thing. Exploit it for all its worth.
And that doesn't have to mean you personally doing more of it. Hire others to do the actual work. Teach them the exact way you did it that was successful. Scale it up through those you hire/train. If you alone made $100 in one month doing something, go find someone in the big world that will do the necessary work for less than $100. It's that simple! Now you're making the $100 you earn yourself + the remainder after you pay the worker his cut in Month 2. And so on.
If you find that your time is too consumed by doing some of the work yourself, take a short-term pay cut and outsource it all. Then - and this is big - spend your newfound free time to find either a way to make your existing system more efficient (ie, more profitable without adding to the cost to you), or find something else that makes you a small amount of money and repeat the process.
Are you capable of doing this? OF COURSE YOU ARE! Don't doubt it. It's a really simple blueprint, but it's exactly what just about everyone with longevity in their online ventures does in some form or another.
Stop trying to hit home-runs on that first pitch. And stop trying to re-invent the wheel. The path is right in front of you, and it's clearly marked.
