This article will expose you to the common mistakes that I and several other people more have made in the past and will inform you on the right steps you should take to actually make a TONNES of money! Pick the lessons out and make necessary adjustments.
Let’s get into it…
The first mistake you will probably make is
You will allow yourself to be convinced that it is impossible to make money online.You will assume that every story or every result being said by individuals who in your own words ‘Claim to be making money online’ are bogus lies. You will tell yourself that everyone online is probably doing YAHOO-YAHOO or BINOMO.
And even when someone goes the extra mile to prove that making money online ( via Google, instagram, Facebook, YouTube, twitter, Shopify and so on ) is everything but fake. Your mind will still not accept it. You will rather convince yourself of the impossibility and set boundaries or walls to deflect whatever possibly convincing information that finds its way to you.
Worse still, even if you eventually agree that it is ACTUALLY possible to make money online right from your home. You will then try to convince yourself that it is not for you and decide to remain in the comfort of whatever you currently earn. And because of this indecision or rather,the decision to ‘NOT TO PURSUE’.You will never MAKE MONEY ONLINE.
The second mistake…
Sadly, almost every individual falls victim to this. So did I. Here is what happens in two parts.
The first part;
𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴.
Because of some eagerness and extreme desperation to quickly make money and make it big. You will find yourself in a position where due diligence seems like a BIG FRUSTRATING WASTE OF TIME. And therefore look for one of the many means to make money and start making mediocre or half baked efforts that will yield results not so far from zero.
You will abandon research, You will abandon skill acquisition. You will abandon information. Disregard Consultation and then jump into THE GAME. Expecting the internet to manufacture and deliver $10,000 to you as a reward for your trial and error.
And when this does not happen and it won’t. You will get upset with the entire online market and decide to give up, convincing yourself that it wasn't your LAZINESS and IMPATIENCE that caused your FAILURE.
𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲.
Here is the thing and yes, it’s a real truth. To make money online, you may have to spend some time and a lot of money without receiving any rewards immediately It's called DELAYED GRATUITY. Some have to spend days, weeks, or even months before they finally catch a break and make a decent $10K - $30K online. But no that's freaking long, too long.You want to start today and make this same amount yesterday.
And so, if after a few weeks or even days. you haven’t made those huge amounts. Then online marketing must be fake or just too damn DIFFICULT and at this point, you either GIVE UP or make the next mistake.
The third mistake
‘𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗦𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗢𝗯𝗷𝗲𝗰𝘁 𝗦𝘆𝗻𝗱𝗿𝗼𝗺𝗲’
Simply put your constant decision to move from the thing you currently do to another thing that seems to be more attractive and in quote ‘HIGHLY PROFITABLE’. You hear stories that spike the FOOLISHNESS in us to assume that where you currently are has no green pastures.
And then you will switch so very quickly from what you had started doing to something you know nothing about simply because you heard. There is a lot of money there and it is the surest thing.
You enter into the new business you begin to struggle and build slowly again suddenly you hear of another shining business, then you get interested in that too. Some of us will even do the two together creating such CALAMITY.
And then you will just keep jumping never dedicating the much needed focus the online world requires. Again you will eventually fail in all and then give up.
The fourth mistake
𝗕𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀/ 𝗙𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗡𝗲𝗴𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲
You start a business online, remain faithful and extremely consistent . And then you finally make some profit maybe about $3000 dollars. yes, you have ARRIVED.
So the next step for you to do is to JAIYE- JAIYE.You will carry your ATM card rush to the nearest Apple store and then buy yourself that new phone or Macbook Or No, maybe you are not like me;
Maybe you will just begin to eat lunch at restaurants, shop at big supermarkets. In fact, you finally have the chance to take that dream girl out for dinner, Or go see a movie or something. I mean why not? Since you probably will assume that you can make this same money back, sharp sharp. You did it before so you can definitely do it again.
This is a foolish mistake!
Here is what will happen 70 percent of the time!
You will end up blowing everything away and then you will have to start from zero. But unluckily for you this time, your standard of living and expectations have increased. You have tasted money and so the hunger for its pleasures will forever be on your tongue.
And as such this time around, you may not be able to have the same patience you had before and this may lead you to even more costly mistakes. Worst of all, you have lost your CAPITAL money you should have reinvested into your business, be it a service or sales of consumer goods… and then scale up to make nearly 10 times your current worth. Alas, this move will trigger desperation, and emotion that you should never have online.
The final mistake
You will find and quickly realise that a few of us Internet marketers and sales men never look at our businesses from the normal business standpoint.
Here is what we actually do: We try out a new business and once we make money, we get excited then make even more money. We will milk it until it is seemingly dry and then migrate never thinking twice of how we can expand on the model. And actually create a strong, standing brand or business.
We are quick to disregard and abandon the potential of creating a proper business around what we have made a huge success of. And unless you have plans of using one thing to build another. Essentially, using that business as a mere cash cow. Then this will be a costly mistake you may never realise.
