There are many resources out there that teach you the nuts and bolts of making money on the net. The most important challenges people face are not the lack of how to information.
The most common challenges are rather the lack of self control, inner drive and confidence. Everyone can read a book about how to start a business. Not many people have the courage, perseverance and determination to make it happen.
The following tips and principles will save you months from your learning curve. Live by them and making money on the net will no longer be an issue.
# 1: Stop reading and start doing.
If you read more than 20 pages without doing anything with that information, you are doing it wrong. The ideas you read will not implement themselves. And if they do not work, there's no point to continue reading more useful information.
The idea of reading too much, hundreds of pages, before doing anything with the information is based on fear. The sooner you realize this, the sooner you can start earning real cash. Making money on the net becomes fun after you start making some.
# 2: Work on your emotions.
Your fear, greed, overconfidence, love and other emotional states will blind you from the reality of things. Unless you assess clearly what's going on in the marketplace, your strategies will always fail. Your emotions are like a disease which blind you from the reality.
You need to compensate for them. When you are fearful, know that you are going to anticipate larger obstacles. When you are overconfident, be cautious and do not risk anything.
# 3: Sell what sells in the beginning.
In the beginning, until you get the basics, you should sell what other people are selling. This will teach your unconcious mind that you can earn money from the Internet. Your first goal should be to make your first $ 1 online as soon as possible.
# 4: Think long term.
Making money on the net is not a short term endeavor. Thinking long term will help you avoid the usual pitfalls like: get rich quick schemes, trying to cheat the system, complaining about how bad things are etc.
# 5: Do not be affected by what other people think.
Be aware of the constructive criticism. And do not care about what other people think of you. If you care about what neighbors think of you, you will never become rich or have a successful business.
# 6: See yourself as part of the elite.
Associate with people who are more successful than you are. In this way, you will become like them in a short while. You will unconsciously incorporate their patterns in your arsenal.
# 7: Do not try to change others.
Change yourself. People change slowly. If they do not really want it, they will not change because you want them to change. It's futile to give advice to people who do not want your advice.
# 8: Have daily goals.
You should have daily money and work goals. The monthly goals are too far away from each other. And in order for you to have a long term success, you have to have a huge string of daily successes. Tomorrow will be a success only if today is a success. Focus on what you need to do today and go from there.
# 9: Focus on the money.
Track your numbers and make sure they increase with each day. Find what gives you the most return on investment and do more of those things.
# 10: Suck up the pain.
Many people do not act when they feel negative about the situation. They avoid risk and want everything to go smoothly. Bad things happen all the time. This is the reality of life. And you can not prevent everything. This is why it's important to have self discipline especially when you do not feel like it. Self discipline is the most important when you least feel like using it, because that's when it can make the greatest difference for you.
