First of all, I want to share a quote that I stumbled across when I first started out learning how to make money on the internet:
For the life of me I cannot remember where I saw this or who said it, I just remember reading it and it really stuck with me. This was the quote that so intensely inspired me to go through and actually set out to try the whole online business thing.
But the truth is, it takes motivation and determination to build a successful business online and if you just give up, you’re never going to get there. Most people lose their motivation for whatever reason – life gets in the way, they don’t see immediate success, or they just lose interest. You need to be able to push past the hard part and keep going even when things get hard or you don’t feel like doing it anymore. The only way you can fail is to give up!
The problem is sticking with it even after you want to give up, even after you seem to lost all faith and your motivation is gone. If you’re not motivated, you’re probably not putting in as much work as you should be (or maybe you’re not working at all!) That is going to have a huge impact on how far you come. I cannot even imagine how much further I could be at this point if I had stayed 100% motivated the entire time and given it my all.
When you don’t have to deal with punching a time clock or the constant threat of a boss lurking over your shoulder, when you don’t have that promise of a paycheck at the end of the week, what makes you keep going?
However cliche’ or cheesy they may seem, they are 100% true. Start out in the right direction, with the right mindset, and learn to push past the low points and you will almost certianly come out on top!
