    Work Ethic and Application

    It really isn't that hard to make a living in the IM field but the hardest part is applying what you've learned in a timely fashion.

    When eHow gave you the ability to publish your own blurbs I know a girl you wrote 400 over a few months. She now pulls in over $5000 monthy mostly from that stream.

    She simply just applied a technique and stuck with it.

    Most people hit a brick wall and don't take the time to figure out how to over come it. You have to stick with it and learn something and learn how to apply it.

    As Robbeh said, work ethic and avoiding procrastination. When you work from home (as most of us do), it's easy to lose focus with all kind of distractions. TV, family, videogames, etc.

    What I do is working with a timer and the Eben Pagan's 60-60-30 concept: Google

    Also I like to silence the phone and uninstall games if they are too addictive. (As you can see, I have a little problem with videogames )

    Hardest part for most people is probably getting off of the forums and applying the skills and concepts they learn!

    Staying focused on one task at a time and completing it.

    I have access to a lot of different kinds of training material, and I've had to force myself not to look at things that aren't in the field of marketing that I've decided to focus on. As tempting as some methods are, I can't chase them all.

    Pick something and master it. Ignore everything else.

      I was going to post this, but since you beat me to it, I will just back you up 100%.

      If you have been a warrior for more than 6 months, you already know more than most, and certainly enough to take one project to completion. And then one more .....

    Probably not becoming discouraged when Google is doing its dancing ;-)

    It takes self-discipline and can be frustrating when you don't see results in a timely fashion.

    The problem with internet marketing is it's "Information Overload". You can easliy get distracted and therefor lose focus on the thing's you were previously working on....I have any way lol!

      I'd have to agree. There is so much to learn with internet marketing and it can be tempting to chase the latest thing but what really produces results is the ability to "stick to it".

      Pick one area to focus on and set a goal for yourself that you must meet before deciding to try a different approach.

      It's tempting to always search for the latest "get rich quick" offer out there but the reality is that if you pick a proven business model and stick to it for long enough, you will see results.

    Analysis of failures. Sometimes it can be hard to look at your work objectively and find out what went wrong. I just try to take a step back and figure out what's up, even if it can be hard.

    Probs one of the hardest things to do it is stop goofing around on the internet (forums, twitter, facebook) and do some actual work.

    Michael,

    - getting started is the hardest part - making that first $100 and then increasing upon that.
    - Taking action and implementing
    - Sticking with the program and ignoring all the noise

    Pin-pointing EXACTLY what's holding you back!

    You should ask yourself very specific questions and then find the solution. If I ask myself "how can I make money online?", then I'll come up with 20 odd answers.

    However, if I ask myself, "how can I build backlinks to this website to get more traffic?", then I can Google it up and start looking for information on how to do it.

    Sequential progress

    Avoiding procrastination, focusing on one thing at a time and believing in yourself, these were some of the challenges that I faced.
