THE THINGS I LEARNT THAT MADE MY INTERNET BUSINESS A SUCCESS
Hi Friends, in my last post I promised to tell you the most vital lessons I’ve learnt so far throughout my many years of internet marketing experience.
Therefore, as a friend, I am going to share with you the most vital LESSONS that had led to my own internet breakthrough. Things I learned the hard way during my many years of trial and error, and how discovering them turned things round. I know they can help you too if you really follow them .
Some people prefer the “bright shiny objects” and the “get rich quick programs“. They’re always looking for the magic pills. I hope you’re not one of them and that you’re a lot smarter because if you are, then i am going to disappoint you.
Making money online is about running a real business, and helping people in the process.
It’s about knowing the fundamentals of the business, and getting the skills required. I’ll talk more about these below…
Below are 5 vital lessons I learned about making real money from the internet…
Lesson #1 – Work towards Your Goals, One Step At A Time
It’s always better to focus on one thing at a time while you’re working towards your goal.
Instead of jumping around program to program, stick to a plan at least for 30 days. Because the internet business is new to you, you’ll have to manage your time and progress at your own pace. You can’t learn to run before you walk.
Take a baby step towards achieving your goal.
It’s ok to take each step slowly, one at a time. Don’t stress yourself, there’s no deadline in the internet business.
Instead, have fun and enjoy the process! Finally, always know your mission because a mission is the most important part of a business, it’s the heart of a business. Without spirit and heart, most entrepreneurs will not make it simply because the road ahead is a hard one.
Lesson #2 – Learn The Fundamentals And Basic Skills
This one is crucial – you’ve got to be equipped with the basic skills and the correct fundamentals of the business in order to run the internet business successfully. The easiest way to do that is to LEARN and APPLY what you learn consistently.
Stop and think about how silly and unrealistic such an attitude is. You can’t expect to make money if you don’t even want to take the initiative to learn. No one is going to hand you money for nothing. You’ve to work for it.
You’ve got to learn it so you can depend on yourself in the future.
The internet business is a SKILL you can pick up, only question is – are you willing?
If you aren’t and expect others to do it for you, then you’ll be waiting and waiting, hoping that money will fall from the sky. This was my attitude before the turning point, and it cost me many years of my life!
These days it’s so easy and affordable to learn the internet business as long as you want to. Resources are available readily and people are willing to help, but you have to help yourself first. There are NO EXCUSES.
Lesson #3 – Take Responsibility For Your Own Success
I mentioned earlier how I did “something” that changed everything…well, that “something” was simple…
I decided to finally become an adult and be responsible for my own success.
This was a HUGE turning point because it completely changed my mind set.
Things started to “click” when I looked at it through a refreshed, responsible attitude. Prior to this I was blaming everyone and the programs I bought which didn’t work.
Truth is, it wasn’t the programs, it was ME.
When you keep doing a thing always and it’s not working, it simply means that you’ve not done it the right way that will make it work. I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today as he was yesterday.
Albert Einstain defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different result.
Therefore, all you need to do is pause, think of where you’re doing it wrong then re-strategize and shoot again.
I wasn’t serious about taking action and working hard. Heck, I wasn’t even serious about really wanting to succeed. I was looking to other people to make me successful but as we know, that just won’t happen. Remember, “Nothing happens until something happens“.
Therefore, you’ve got to take responsibility for your own success, do the necessary. Only then will things change.
Lesson #4 – Know That There Are NO “Magic Pills”!
As human, we are always searching for the laziest and easiest way to make it. That’s perfectly normal. In reality however, there are no “magic pills” or “bullets”, especially in the internet business.
Being guilty of this myself, it drowned me in futile searches for many years. Success came when I realized that I needed to treat the internet business as a real BUSINESS. I started to make real money when I stopped looking for another magic pill. Ironic I know, but it’s the truth.
Instead, when I chose to learn the correct internet business and marketing principles, the money started flowing in. I had an internet business and was applying internet marketing.
Lesson #5 – Start Small And Dream Big!
Before starting any business, you need to PLAN and have a goal. Know how much you want to make, only then will you be able to reach it. As the saying goes, “To Get Started, You Must Have A Destination.”
For example, set a goal to make $1,000 in 30 days, and work backwards from there. Always set goals for yourself. This is a very powerful and effective way to motivate yourself.
However you have to be realistic and
One other important lesson I learned too was to work smarter…
By this I mean you should get help. This is a powerful and proven way to become successful FAST.
You don’t have to reinvent the wheel or stumble in the dark. Learn from other successful people, leverage on their experience and knowledge. Get others to help you as much as possible.
That’s one of the most important things I ever did that accelerated my own success and it will do the same for you.
Sometimes the most prudent thing to do is to take action even when you do not have all the facts…!
Just getting started is your best course of action. Pick a target and shoot! If you miss the target, you move on to the next one.
I guarantee you one thing: doing nothing will get you one thing: NOTHING.
Taking action toward what you want will always win… even if you start wrong, it’s better than sitting still.
As you move toward something, you create ‘course corrections’, refine your strategy, and learn from your mistakes but YOU KEEP ON MOVING.
Each and every day online, you’re going to come up against another obstacle. It may be small – it may be big. Everyone in business has obstacles to overcome. I personally face obstacles online EVERYDAY! That’s just the way business is… the road isn’t always smooth or easy. There will always be some distractions as well.
Those that succeed in business don’t allow anything to stop them from moving forward toward their goals. Each day you’ll gain more and more momentum and those daily obstacles ultimately become easier and easier to overcome.
Why? Not because it actually gets any easier…. It just becomes a part of your everyday business plan. Successful people are on a mission and they let nothing stop them from completing their mission.
If they’re unsure about how to do something that needs to get done, they LEARN HOW to do it…
