The Secrets of Internet
If you have
your own Internet business, you've no doubt heard about successful Internet
marketers who are legitimately making millions of dollars each year. And,
you've probably even wondered exactly how they're making all of that money.
What are the secrets they share that most people don't know?
After a great
deal of research, I have finally discovered what these successful entrepreneurs
all have in common. The secret is ... they take action and implement their
So, if this is the true secret to making a lot of money online, why do most
Although there are many causes for a business to fail, we will focus on just
Failure to Take
No matter what
type of business you'd like to develop, your dream will NEVER become a reality
unless you TAKE ACTION. This is first and most important step to becoming
This seems like such a simple little thing; however, this is where most people
fail. They never take the first step. Whether they are stuck in the 9-5 rat
race, lacking motivation, lacking money, lacking time, or are just afraid
of failure, they don't even try. That's so sad, as they never even give
themselves a real chance.
If you truly want it bad enough, no matter what obstacles are in your way,
you can make it happen. Whatever is preventing you from pursuing your dream,
there is a solution. It's just a matter of taking action and finding the
You see, that's what sets millionaires apart from most people. They take
action and find solutions to whatever may be standing in their
Failure to Develop
Would you go
on a trip across the country without your GPS or at least a road map? Of
course not! Then why try to run a business without a plan?
Without a plan, you're setting yourself up for failure. Without a plan, you
have no direction and will travel in circles, never reaching your destination.
This would be counter productive and a complete waste of your time.
It is very important that you develop a plan of action and set some short-term
reachable goals and long-term higher goals. However, don't set them too high,
as this will cause you to become discouraged if you don't achieve them.
Write your goals down on a piece of paper and consistently work toward
accomplishing your short-term goals each day, each week and each month until
you reach them. You should then set your goals a little higher each time.
By accomplishing your short-term goals, you will eventually achieve your
Lack of Self
How long do you
think you would keep a job working for someone else if you missed a lot of
days, or were late all the time? Not very long.
If you apply this concept to running your own business, do you think your
business will be successful if you only work it on the weekend, or now and
then? Of course not. You are again setting yourself up for failure.
You should get up early each day and prepare for your job just like you would
if you were working for someone else. Make a list of everything you want
to accomplish each day and work through the list until the tasks are complete.
You must take your business very seriously and consistently work at it on
a regular schedule.
Lack of Self
You must be motivated
and enthusiastic about your business. Surround yourself with motivated, happy
people, such as coaches, mentors or other support people to give you the
push you need when you're slacking or procrastinating. These people produce
Avoid people who try to discourage you from pursuing your dreams, as these
people produce negative energy and only serve to bring you down.
No matter what business opportunity you enter into, there will always be
people, including your own family and friends, who try to discourage you.
They will make negative comments, such as "This is a scam," or "You'll never
make any money on the Internet," or "You need to get a 'real' job." However,
if you really think about the people who make these comments, you will most
likely find that they are stuck in brick and mortar jobs, running the 9-5
rat race each day. These people are usually very conservative and afraid
to take chances. The truth is, they will most-likely never make any REAL
Always surround yourself with like-minded people who are already what you're
striving to be or who support you and your goals.
If you're working with a marketing group of some sort that offers
motivational/training conference calls, call in and get the support you need.
This can make a world of difference.
Failure to Invest
in Your Business
You must be willing
to invest in your business - both time and monetarily.
No matter what type of business you want to start, Internet or brick and
mortar, there will always be a start up cost. You must be willing to invest
in your business by setting aside some money to start your business.
In addition, if you want your business to grow and continue to grow, not
only must you invest your time, but you must also invest a portion of your
profits back into your business.
Too Many Irons
in the Fire
Instead of focusing
on several projects, and giving each project only a portion of your attention,
focus on just one project and work it until it is successful.
You must take the time to fully promote your project and continue to promote
it until it can stand on its own. You can then move on to another project.
By making a few simple changes in your life, you can almost guarantee that
you will become much more successful.
