Just a quick one tonight.
Whilst watching the England team capitulate to France this evening, after France went down to 10 men in the early minutes of the second half, I couldn’t help but draw a comparison to many of the things that I’ve found, and tried, on the internet.
You see, the problem with all of the “get rich quick” schemes, that promise easy money, is that when things turn out to be a little more difficult than you first thought, you give up.
We saw it in the game tonight.
France had a man sent off, England though the game was theirs. When France came at them and caused them all sorts of problems, we just couldn’t figure out what had gone wrong – the game should be ours, surely! We didn’t anticipate the surge in attack from the opposition and so we were caused all sorts of problems, eventually conceding one last time and losing the game!
Why do we quit so quickly?
How many times have we all gone into something expecting it to be easy, being sold on an easy way to earn extra cash, only to find that there’s a huge amount of work to be done before that dream of a second income becomes a reality.
I believe that this unrealistic expectation, above all else, is the reason for such high failure in internet business. People are just not prepared for the amount of work and creativity that it takes to make it work.
IT IS BUSINESS! If you want a real business, you have to do real work – just like any other kind of business!
And that is exactly why I love Wealthy Affiliate. There is no promise of easy money (none that I’ve seen anyway). If you plan to sign up – for Free – be prepared to work for your future! It isn’t easy, but it isn’t impossible either!
You don’t need to quit your job or spend 6 hours per day at it, just small, consistent actions which, over time, create you a legitimate online business that could set you up for financial freedom!
Paid vs Free
There is also an argument to be made that when something is free, you will give it less attention. I don’t know if it is because when you pay for something you attach more value to it, or just that you want to make the most of your investment, but in my experience, I always perform far better when I have made an initial investment!
That is exactly why I went premium at Wealthy Affiliate. I’m, not going to try to sell it to you, Kyle and Carson (the owners) do all of that for me. Just take a look, for free and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
This is not easy, quick money!
Be prepared. Be prepared to be overwhelmed at times, to be confused, nervous, tired and all of the things that come with a new business.
But on the flipside, you’ll also be excited, you’ll dream of a possible future, sitting on the beach writing content, earning money on the other side of the world (that’s my experience anyway!).
You’ll have to work at it though. Treat it like you would any other business! There are guys making millions in affiliate marketing, those are the guys who stuck in there, learned everything they needed to know, got around the right people and trusted that they COULD do it!
You genuinely have nothing to lose by taking a look at my review of Wealthy Affiliate. Have a read through, follow the link to the site and make up your own mind on whether or not it’s for you. You will probably be pleasantly surprised.
As I have said, it’s not easy, it’s not quick, but it is possible!
