Do You Enjoy IM And Think Its Easy??

58 replies
Hi Warriors/Friends,

Sounds like a silly question but do you enjoy IM and think its easy??

The reason why I ask is when I first started this amazing journey that has changed my life for the better I didn,t really have the same feeling that I have today..and the guru's definately made me believe it is easy..

I will be honest..I was in it for the money, quick money..Which I confess never arrived..But as soon as I changed my attitude and my work ethic and started to actually give back with all honesty and sincerity I started to recieve..

There are thousands of people coming to the IM world daily and I feel that many of them have the wrong attitude. I say this with all due respect..

Also many think that this is going to be easy..

Please remember that you have to work..you have to be honest, sincere and you have to enjoy IM..you will survive if you do this..

The rewards for this correct attitude are abundance, prosperity, happiness and riches beyond your wildest dreams..

God Bless and Good Luck!!

    I absolutely enjoy it, and it's awesome learning something new literally every day.

    Is it easy though? Far from it. Theres plenty of people saying "Buy this software, run it and watch the money come rolling in". If it was that easy, a lot more people would be doing IM. Also there would be no need for forums like this if that was the case.

    As many people reiterate, you need to treat it like a real business if you are serious about it. It will be hard work but it can be worth it in the end.

    We now live in a get-rich-quick world so the majority of new IMs are looking to make millions in their first year. You are one of the rare ones who realized that it takes a lot of hard work and didn't jump ship!
    Don't let anyone affect your thought process about something that you enjoy! If you're making money and enjoying it then it is for you and keep going harder than ever!

    It's not easy. It's scary as hell.

    But once the knot in your stomach goes away, if you've stuck around for a while and gotten your head right, you might be able to make some good money.

      I love Internet Marketing and can't see myself doing anything else ever. Is it easy? NO! In my opinion this is by far the hardest job I have ever had. I guess because I learned it completely on my own without any real training and it was a long hard road to get here. But, it was fun doing it so that makes it okay.

      Indeed, although IM itself isn't scary per se...knowing that you have to succeed or starve is an interesting motivation. I only enjoy it when money pops up in my accounts, other than that it's tedious and demanding. Always need to be creative in this game.

      Oh, and I relate to the OP because when I came in I had unrealistic expectations and thought I'd make millions with my first product, never mind my affiliate promos...WRONG! I failed for 4 years before I started to make consistent income! How's that for sticking with it through the harrowing.

    Somehow the OP suggests the "association" of the enjoyable and easy... as if they were connected. I think they aren't necessarily.

    Is climbing the Mt Everest easy? No. Is it rewarding? ==> enjoyable? - Yes.

    As for the easiness... well, see this thread and you will learn all you need is a novel idea and some patience to hit big.

    It's definitely not easy. This is probably the hardest I've ever worked in my life. I've pulled all nighters more times than I care to remember and it's very rare that I actually take a day off. I've wrote more content in the last six months than I did for my entire University course. Those who come in expecting it to be easy definitely need to re-think.

    But is it enjoyable? I think Istvan's quote sums it up quite well...

    Originally Posted by Istvan Horvath View Post

    Sometimes when I'm sitting at home writing articles into the early hours it's not enjoyable. I'm tired, my wrists are sore from all the typing and there's still another 1,000 words to go. There's quite a few things I'd rather be doing at that moment than sitting there, typing away.

    However, when I stick at it and get the reward for my hard work, it's worth it. As a whole package, IM is enjoyable. Some of the work may be difficult, frustrating or boring but with IM, I'm building something for me. I'm directly responsible for my own income and success. You can't beat that feeling.

    This is the best line of work I have ever had and I am just about to celebrate my 13th year in it.

    Is it easy? No. It is not easy. However, if you are willing to put the time and effort into it it does become 'lighter'.

    The early stages are the vital stages and you really have to put as much 'smart' time and effort in as you possibly can.

    "Easy" is relative.

    If you have self discipline to make yourself work and can stay focused, it's MUCH easier than a lot of other jobs.

    -Investment bankers spend ridiculous amounts of hours in a stressful environment
    -Construction workers go home sore every day after being outside in the heat or cold
    -Desk jockeys end up with a job like in the movie Office Space and day dream ALL DAY leaving

    I enjoy IM very much. No other job gives the same amount of freedom in every aspect.
    I talked in more detail about it in this post:

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post5971683

    I believe enjoyability of the activity is tightly connected to the easiness of it.
    Different people enjoy different activities. Different activities come easy or hard to
    different people. Basically, if you do the things you enjoy they come easy to you.
    Most of the people who complain about their work do something they don't want
    and don't enjoy one bit, because of that it is very hard for them.

    I also had the wrong attitude about IM when I first started learning. I thought I was going to create a blog on Hubpages and just see the money rolling in from adsense.
    Obviously, that was not the case.

    I finally switched my thought process and am in a coaching program. I find this is making me want to take action and set realistic goals. It is not easy especially when you have a full time job and three kids to tend to.

    This is what I want to do. I know the road may be long and hard but I will get there.

    The trick is to try and find something that interests you. I try to dabble in many things not only to keep things less boring, but it also keeps me safe if something falls through. I think for many Internet Marketers it's not easy or fun, but being able to work for themselves from wherever they want whenever they want make it worth it.

    It's simple but not necessarily easy. The concept is simple. Sell one or more products or services that people want and can afford. Under promise and over deliver. Build a community where people come to understand that your first goal is to serve them. When you do this money will naturally flow to you.

    That's a pretty simple concept, right? But people manage to screw it up with "shortcuts" that don't fit the model. Eventually some learn while others become disillusioned with hit and run business models that were destined to fail from the beginning. So it goes...

    I wouldn't say that IM is easy at all. Took a lot of failure and even more "WTF is this" moments to get to where I am today. Of course if it was easy, then everyone would be making a killing with it, and success would be nowhere near as rewarding.

    That being said, I find IM to be very enjoyable. I've met groups of people I never would have interacted with otherwise. I have learned to be more receptive to the point of view of others, and become more well rounded on a variety of topics. The challenge of setting up a productive business that doesn't operate out of a classic storefront gets me up and onto the computer every morning, because working to make it happen puts a smile on my face.

      I enjoy IM a lot, but it's not easy. The goal I have is to make it easy. The thing about it is you have to build that solid foundation first which takes a lot of work. The more I do this, the more I learn. Once everything is set up, then I'll say it's easy. Only then do you get "push button profits" as they say. Thanks for bringing up this topic .

    I once considered myself an intelligent and reasonable man.

    IM completely exposed my idiotic and psychotic side.

    It is a humbling and rewarding experience once I started to "Get" it.

    Easy? Hell to the NO! The absolute hardest work I have ever done, and I come from 25 years working in construction.

    Rewarding? Sometimes.... Other times I have to take a deep breath and walk away from the computer before chaos ensues.

    Am I gonna quit? Nope, totally addicted.

    I think it gets easier once you learn to stop looking for a "quick fix" or the "secret." It's a lot easier once you get your methods sorted and just stick at it without getting too distracted.

    Just like i the offline world there are many ways to do "Internet marketing."

    I honestly enjoying IM. However, I don't have the same perspective about IM when I first start. I, like you bobby, was in it for the quick money and it never happened. I could have giving up when I realized that but I really like what I do. I love the fact that there's always something new to discover with IM. Every day I learn something new and I just thrive on that. It's definitely not an easy field in my opinion, but I love it!

    I'm sure a lot of people got into this biz expecting to make a lot of big $$$ fast.

    However I'm sure a lot of newbies heard that it's a lot of hard work and you need to be persistent.

    Thing is, even if you THINK you're prepared to get into this. You have no idea how much work it's going to be until you buckle down and start launching campaigns.

    That being said, most people that last in IM really enjoy what they do. And if you have that, + persistence, you can succeed no matter how much you might know right now.

    The ones who have no talent or are lazy naturally lose interest and drop out.

    It's a ton of work, but I like the work. I like being creative, building something and helping people.

    The collateral benefits of being self-employed, leveraging effort and residual income are great as well.

    It has frustrating days as well, but then what doesn't? The worst IM day is better than the best 9 to 5 job day.

Because you have overcome another problems , so means that you bigger than the problem you currently have, and then , here comes another problem and so on to solve it. So, it' just learning process, will have fall down, then will be rise up.

    I don't think it's easy by any means... especially when you're first starting out.
    It will no doubt get much easier as you progress and learn what works and what doesn't.

    When you're first beginning we all have a tendency to second guess what we're doing and whether it will work. Which makes it tough.

    I absolutely love IM, but don't think it's easy AT ALL. I really like the fact that it's difficult though; it's a great barrier of entry IMO.

    People flooding into IM remind of people who want to lose weight and make a new year's resolution to do it; when the new year starts in January, the gyms are busy and everyone is motivated... but after a while... errrr.... one or two months, the gyms start emptying out and the people who end up sticking around are the people who were there before January; the people that know it takes time, hard work, and belief because they know in due time - they will get the results they're looking for.
