I've learned a lot from the forum & I just wanted to give back a little and share with you one thing I've learned.
When we first enter IM we are usually sold on the idea that we can get rich quick. If we buy their program we can be living the good life in the next couple hours.
Now for me, it took a while to get into my head that this is just not true. We still go on believing for a while that we can get rich once we buy that program that gives us the magic button.
When I finally did realize that I can't get rich quick, I came up with the idea that I might have to work a little to make money. Still, even though I didn't realize at the time, I though it would be relatively easy to do this.
Now skip ahead to where I am now. I have failed, and failed, and failed again to come to this conclusion.
We may say that we know that this business requires us to work. We may say that we know its not a get rich quick thing. But we really don't get away from the idea of getting rich quick. And this is why we fail.
I have just recently realized (I wish I had realized this earlier it would have saved me a lot of time) that we HAVE TO KNOW, THIS IS AS REAL AS AN OFFLINE BUSINESS.
If we want to make money, we have to treat this exactly like an offline business. We need a plan, a budget, a good mindset, and most importantly... written goals.
If we do this, which I am now doing, we will see success I know it.
So, for anyone that is struggling to make money online. Get the "quick riches" idea out of your head. You may think it's out, but there's a good chance if your not making money it is still there. Then create a plan. Where are you going to be in a year? What are you goals? How much are you going to spend a month on your business?
All of these things will make you successful & will change your business.
I hope that I have helped a few people.
