Making Money Online is Easy!
I used to go crazy when I heard such nonsense. I have to admit, it still makes me scream “stop lying!” on the inside.
But, if making money online isn’t easy, it must be hard. Right?
Well, in many respects, yes – it is hard. But that doesn’t mean it has to be a struggle.
Unfortunately, for many people who dream of making money online, their online business is a struggle.
You’ve probably had people ask you what your biggest struggle is in your business. Perhaps you’ve even thought of yourself as “struggling” to make money online.
And really, any way you look at it, “struggling” is not a good thing. It has negative connotations all the way around. It smacks of “failure,” and “worry,” and “unhappiness.” Not pretty descriptors for your online business.
The good news is, you can stop struggling today. Right now in fact. By simply declaring that you are no longer struggling. And of course, believing that the struggle is over, and in fact never even existed.
No, I’m not going to give you affirmations that haven’t worked for you in the past. Or tell you that with “positive thinking” the struggle will end.
But, you will have to significantly shift your mindset. Happily, I’m about to make that easy for you.
Think about a baby. At 11 months old you see her starting to stand without holding on to anything, cautioning a step every now and then – only to immediately tumble to the ground. You don’t tell people she’s “struggling” to become a walker. She’s simply learning to successfully walk.
When you plant a lettuce seed in your garden, and you come back a week later to see a 2 inch plant, you don’t say that your lettuce is “struggling” to grow. It’s doing exactly what it’s suppose to be doing to become an edible head of lettuce.
And when you check the pot of rice on your stove half way through its cooking time, you don’t say its “struggling” to get done. The rice is simply taking the amount of time nature determined for it to become soft and edible.
The baby, the lettuce and the rice are all doing exactly what they should be doing. Are they working? Yes. Is it hard? Yes, in some ways. It takes a lot of practice to walk. The tiny lettuce plant has to survive the elements, and the rabbits. The rice has to make it from the field, to your pantry, to being cooked just the right amount of time.
Your online business is exactly like the baby, the lettuce and the rice.
You are doing exactly what you need to be to doing to start consistently making money online.
You aren’t going to wake up with $10,000 in your bank account 30 days after your website is up, any more than a lettuce seed is going to wake up as a full head of lettuce the day after it’s planted. It’s just not the way the world works.
If you are taking daily steps to develop and grow your online business, stop thinking of the process of business growth as a struggle. And even more importantly, stop letting marketers that fill your inbox with “how to make money online” offers convince you that you are struggling and that they can magically stop the struggle.
Put your credit card away. Because shifting your mindset is free. And if you will shift your mindset from one of struggle, and see that you are simply walking a proven and necessary path to success, your online business journey will be easier, more fun, and less costly!
