Hello Warriors.

I feel very overwhelmed. Lately, over the past couple of months, I have been going absolutely crazy trying to build my business and earn money...

Guys, I have been in front of my computer for at least 12-16 hours A DAY for the past couple months. I wake up, get on the computer and work myself until I just cannot concentrate any longer, to the point where I'm almost in a 'dead stare' at my PC.

This month, I have hit the 5 figures mark...It is very, very exciting to have over 10k right now...But let me tell ya, It is VERY, VERY overwhelming for me...I don't know how to react to it and my emotions are going hay-wire.

It's like, in the back of my mind I know that I'm basically financially free, I have the knowledge to make money with absolutely nothing more than my brain, fingertips, and my laptop anywhere in the world. However, my brain doesn't want to accept it, it seems too good to be true that my life is actually going this way.

Now I'm sitting here thinking that this is absolutely crazy, there's no way this is actually happening to me.

So what did I do? Nothing special at all. Seriously, if I told you guys right now that I used any particular method to finally have achieved my goals I would be lying.

It's not just from websites, it's not just from articles, it's not just from selling products, building a list, or adwords it's because of everything...All of it. Hard to explain really.

There's only one thing that is responsible for this I think. And I think it's the fact that I lit a fire under my rear, glued myself to my laptop, taken a break from 90% of my social life and starting taking as much action as I possibly could on the simplest of things we all know works.

What I found to be that absolute clincher in my overwhelming success in Internet marketing is the ability to work on only one thing at a time until it's done. In internet marketing, once you complete a project usually it will pay you for months, years or even forever.

Let me tell you, there is no magic bullet. Building websites, building a list, paid advertising, joint ventures, selling products, etc are all ways that absolutely anybody can make money online.

90% of everything you've learned about Internet marketing works...But focusing all of your energy, your heart...YOUR SOUL at your goals things will change.

I don't care if can only build a site good enough to make .50 cents a day...If you can make .50 cents a day, $15 a month you should focus every bit of your willpower to turn that .50 cents a day, into $50 a day.

I wish there was something I could say, or something I could do that would make it click in some of your heads, that you ALREADY have all the knowledge, power and skills to live a financially free life with Internet marketing... But all I can say is to TAKE ACTION, and take action like nothing else in the world exists, until you accomplish your goals.

To be honest, I don't know what to do, or how to take it. This moment in my life right now is just unreal.

I want to see if I can provide a super simple plan of action that anybody can follow to eventually achieve the same results as I.

Here's my 7 step action plan

1 - Choose a method or strategy of online marketing that interests you. Could be building websites, building a list, getting clients, using adwords, creating products...Whatever. Just find a method that interests you that will simply work when you take action and practice.

2 - Learn as much as you can about the method or strategy you chose, and get that method to make you $1 online. Seriously, do something, and make just a buck, at least.

3 - REALIZE that you have actually made money from the Internet, your computer, the electronic devise you're touching right now. Make it sink into your head that you made money here and that you can make more.

4 - FOCUS ON THAT ONE METHOD.
TAKE ACTION ON THAT ONE METHOD
DO NOTHING ELSE BUT THAT ONE METHOD

5 - MASTER THAT METHOD

6 - After mastering, HIRE SOMEBODY TO DO THAT METHOD FOR YOU (BAM now that income is on autopilot)

7 - REPEAT STEPS 1-6 until you reach your goals.

I think it would be safe to assume that over 90% of people who read this, already know of at least one method that can make them money online. There's no need to jump through hoops my friend, you already know the 'secrets', the 'magic bullets'.

You could literally, have a brief look around the Main Internet Marketing Discussion forum here, the SEO forum, the CPA forum or the War Room and I can guarantee, without spending a dime, you'll learn of a method that can make you money.

You can do it, all you have to do is light a fire under your rear and FORCE YOURSELF to take action on methods you already know work.

Check out what this Warrior said, he makes a great point.

If each page on their website and each article generated a single new vistor a day they would have 730 new visitors to their site each day which is more then enough traffic to make a living from for any website properly monetized.

Respectfully,
Tim
That really is simple, what he said, isn't it?

      Adam,

      Congrats man! It truly is a great feeling.

      I agree with you in that if you want a specific business model to work for you, you have to really like what you are doing. Genuinely liking what you do makes your tasks much more simple and ensures that you are going to keep up with them long enough to make substantial progress...or in our case, profit.

      I love seeing these success stories. It just lets others know that it is possible to reach your goals and that anyone can do it.

      Keep up the great work! The possibilities are limitless online!

      Matt

    This part that you mention > ' I wake up, get on the computer and work myself until I just cannot concentrate any longer' < that is what stage I am at right now, however I have only just started to look into things such as Clickbank as something to do instead of my normal business etc... so early days yet I was just reading the information on the site about how to understand what all the stats mean based on the vendor % on sales, I bet you can remember being at this stage many moons ago lol, right now I am trying to work out which is better for promoting the products either YouTube or creating a Website, once again well done and happy xmas to you to buddy.

      Actually, I only started learning Internet marketing in January of this year , but yea, I definitely remember those times.

      I remember the first time I made a sale I was so syked. I was telling everybody how I made $7 while I was sleeping lol.

      The $7 commission was from a home improvement lead via commission junction. That day right there, when I made $7 while I was sleeping that day, really put a spark in me. That was the day that I knew this was possible.

        Wow thats awsome then I mean based on you are now earning those sorts of numbers, one thing I am going to do from now on though is stick with one thing, I mean for myself it's so easy to get caught up in all the hype of other things and then I forget or dont bother to get back on the last project, I guess it is a bad value I have as well in life if im honest, but from now on I am going to stick with just getting better at once thing at a time.

        Over the past couple months I have increased my bottom line by 4-5k. This includes some site flipping, new websites (traffic from SEO), hired a part-time content writer, created new products, started setting up my own affiliate programs because of the success of my courses and reports, doing JVs, networking and some paid advertising.

        Basically, what I have done is worked at everything I've already been doing, and multiplying that success and building upon what I already have.

      Mindset really is all there is to it. I mean, even if you can write an article at Ezinearticles.com and get 100 visitors a month with it, one could just focus all of their efforts on article marketing this way until a goal is reached.

      If all remains simpler than many make things seem to be, things will fall into place much easier, because the truth is, Internet marketing is a very, very simple thing.

        Unfortunately that's the problem that many marketers have when starting their online business - They fail to focus their efforts on a single goal and give up just prior to seeing the rewards from all their hard work.

        You mention writing just one article and submitting it to EZA...However, if a person were to choose a niche and write 1 article a day for EZA in support of that niche while simultaneously building 1 new page on their website in support of that niche at the end of the year they would have a healthy 365 page website and at a minimum 365 published articles working on their behalf.

        If each page on their website and each article generated a single new vistor a day they would have 730 new visitors to their site each day which is more then enough traffic to make a living from for any website properly monetized.

    Adam,

    I'm just catching this post. Well frikin done mate! Just awesome. Every one of your steps is spot on. If someone has pulled in ANY money online, it is a process that can be replicated, mastered, and grown. That is the magic formula really. Great advice man.

    The first month I made it to 10k I actually felt guilty. No joke, I starting getting paranoid thinking I was doing something illegal! lol! It just didn't seem like it should be OK to pull in money like that sitting at my computer. I actually looked at my door a few times half expecting the police to crash in and take me away.

    It took me spending a few good hours just breaking down the man hours spent and really analyzing the vast amounts of work I'd done for no money. At that point I realized a helluva lot was done to get to the point I did, and I breathed a little easier lol!

    Congrats, and keep it up!

      Awesome success! I been dabbling in IM for a while now and have made some $$$. But, nothing close to what I am going to make 2011.

      I totally agree with you master one method than multiply that method (which was my problem when I first started). Also, one statement you made that is so CRUCIAL in being successful and making $$$ - be it IM or any venture (several streams is KEY).

      Again, great job and wish you much success in the coming year.

      Take Care

    I don't care if can only build a site good enough to make .50 cents a day...If you can make .50 cents a day, $15 a month you should focus every bit of your willpower to turn that .50 cents a day, into $50 a day.

    I wish there was something I could say, or something I could do that would make it click in some of your heads, that you ALREADY have all the knowledge, power and skills to live a financially free life with Internet marketing... But all I can say is to TAKE ACTION, and take action like nothing else in the world exists, until you accomplish your goals.

    To be honest, I don't know what to do, or how to take it. This moment in my life right now is just unreal.

    I want to see if I can provide a super simple plan of action that anybody can follow to eventually achieve the same results as I.

    Here's my 7 step action plan

    1 - Choose a method or strategy of online marketing that interests you. Could be building websites, building a list, getting clients, using adwords, creating products...Whatever. Just find a method that interests you that will simply work when you take action and practice.

    2 - Learn as much as you can about the method or strategy you chose, and get that method to make you $1 online. Seriously, do something, and make just a buck, at least.

    3 - REALIZE that you have actually made money from the Internet, your computer, the electronic devise you're touching right now. Make it sink into your head that you made money here and that you can make more.

    4 - FOCUS ON THAT ONE METHOD.
    TAKE ACTION ON THAT ONE METHOD
    DO NOTHING ELSE BUT THAT ONE METHOD

    5 - MASTER THAT METHOD

    6 - After mastering, HIRE SOMEBODY TO DO THAT METHOD FOR YOU (BAM now that income is on autopilot)

    7 - REPEAT STEPS 1-6 until you reach your goals.

    I think it would be safe to assume that over 90% of people who read this, already know of at least one method that can make them money online. There's no need to jump through hoops my friend, you already know the 'secrets', the 'magic bullets'.

    You could literally, have a brief look around the Main Internet Marketing Discussion forum here, the SEO forum, the CPA forum or the War Room and I can guarantee, without spending a dime, you'll learn of a method that can make you money.

    You can do it, all you have to do is light a fire under your rear and FORCE YOURSELF to take action on methods you already know work.

    I posted this in the SEO forum on accident, meant to post in the make money online forum. MODS please feel free to move this over. Don't have the option to delete own posts for some reason.
    Adam - congratulations to you! Regardless of the forum, your message is powerful. I completely agree - without purchasing even 1 course, someone could learn many different ways to build their business.

    Congrats again!

      I almost missed one of the best and truthful posts of the year.

      I remember when I made my first couple of cents in Adsense a couple of years ago, everyone else didn't understand why I was so happy but I knew I could grow cents into dollars and I did. It didn't seem real until I received a check from Google and it still doesn't sometimes.

      I agree with all of your points, especially the one about having most people know more than they realize. New marketers have just enough (in some cases more than enough) information to get started and take action. Experiencing information overload is a sure way to not get anything done or become overwhelmed.

      Start small and grow from there. Wonderful post; should help both new and expanding marketers.

      Congrats on your IM success! It's always awesome to hear more stories like this.

      And thanks for the reminder to stick one thing out until it's running solid. I tend to get started on a second project once I find something that's working well for me. I end up with too many things on my plate and 2 projects running "so-so" instead of just 1 solid project. Your post helped remind me to stay focused.

    That´s an excellent feat Adam and reading your story was
    an inspiration itself. Congratulations man.

    I heard now so many times that working hard doesn´t pay off, I
    don´t believe that since a whole lot.

    It´s a combination of both, working hard and smart, and by being
    consistent pretty much everything is possible.

    Great job!

      Thanks for your reply James, I had somewhat forgotten about this thread.

      I really didn't expect such a response and it feels great knowing that I have inspired and helped improve the mindsets, focus goals and motivation in so many. In the end, that's all it really boils down to, working on just one thing that is scalable until you reach your goals.
