I have been both persons and I want to share with you all i did wrong. I do not regret the Money Lost as much as i regret the time as i can and will never get that back.

Expectations Vs The Realities of making money Online
- First One thing about making money online is just like every legitimate business, it is not a get-rich-quick scheme as work is required, This is not an overnight thing.(even though you can make a very huge sum overnight after you have paid your dues in invested time like Jerry here who earned $40k in one night. Here is his story)
- Secondly, You do not have to be an Expert to start. Do you remember how you learned to walk? it took time and practice, lots of encouragements from your parents, you stumbled a lot, but you Learned to walk and now run, as with every habit: good or bad, it takes repetition, practice and a will to never give up. Most importantly i must add, it requires not just help but the right type of help.
- Thirdly, the worst myth you can buy into is that you can not do it. Well with this, no one can help you i am sorry, i said i was going to be brutally honest. Studies have shown that it is easier to learn while you are below 25 and change your life completely but after the age of 25, change is mostly enforced through some sort of “trauma” so where are you on the “change scale”? because “if you believe you cannot, you most definitely are right.” Success online or in any business starts with your MINDSET
You would require the following to Ease Your Journey into the world of making money online from the comfort of you home. PAY very close attention and promise me you would make Use of what you are about to learn to help fuel your hunger and passion. The very first thing you should ask yourself before you start on this journey, This to me is the most important and you would soon see why
- YOUR WHY? – Why do you want to make money? what motivates you? Answering this question honestly before you start your journey is the best decision you can make.
The motivation of starting something new(Your Online Business) wears off after a few days/weeks or even after the first month and then you begin to question if this is the right business for you. However, remembering YOUR WHY? helps keeps the fire burning.
You would need these to stay committed and consistent as It will be one major key facet required for your success. You must want to succeed as much as you want to breath. You can accomplish this task by taking a sheet of paper and write down WHY you want to make money online, To really achieve results with this, go somewhere quiet where you’re distraction free and allow yourself 10-15 minutes to really go deep and discover your true WHY
ask yourself the following questions and write your answers down.
– If I have a successful online business what would that do for me?
– If I’m able to have and achieve (replace with the answer from above), what will that show me about myself, or allow me to do, be or have?”
you can go deeper with more questions about your life, where you are now and where you see yourself 5-10years from now. How do you want to live the rest of your life? Who else are you doing these for? WHY YOU MUST SUCCEED?
Fifty Cent – “get rich or die trying”
BREAKING NEWS: Death is a certainty my friend, so what are you going to do with you life? be average? not have enough? ask yourself those tough questions like why do i need to earn more?
Scientists have proven that pain is to be a better motivator than pleasure that is why so many stories about people that make it online reads like a miracle where they made a decision to better there life when they are at their lowest, their WHY for success is more haunting than those with a semi comfortable life who live just to survive and i am hoping that you my friend are not one of those and even if you are, be honest with yourself, you can achieve more. Would you not like to see how far you can go life?
I would love to read some of you why’s in the comment section. 🙂
You would need to be disciplined
Time is your most invaluable asset when it comes to making money online ans while one to the rewards is you get to work your hours and when you want, it first you would need to learn a lot and that would require some dedication and discipline to always show up every day to build your online business. you only have 24 hours and if you do have a day job, i would not advise you quit as you would need the funds to make investments in your journey to starting up YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS.
Studies have Shown that the average human being has a focus of 5 seconds while a gold fish has a focus of 6 seconds!!!.
This shows you how unfocused we are becoming as a species. Learning to be focused on the tasks required of you without distractions is a major skill required if you want to make it online as there are so many distractions that would take away your time and focus.
Most people fail because of this. They open a webinar on Their laptops and are scrolling through Facebook at the same time on their phones.
This is not wise as you lose on both end. You should practice the at of being BORED and experience the benefits as you journey along.
Do you remember how you learned to drive a car? You had someone who was already an expert at the wheel with you, teaching you. Most people do not make money online and end up frustrated because they believe It was not just enough reading a book Only.
Reading is one part of the journey but to cut your learning curve and to make sure your are learning the right thing(remember we do not have eternity here on earth), you will need Mentorship and of like-minded individuals with varying degrees of success headed in the same direction as you.
This is where 99.9percent of newbies to making money online working at home fail as they are told that they can read a book or follow a formula and figure it out by themselves.
This is not actually the case, as you can have all the tools and not know how to use them.
You have to take action and you have to do it now,
Procrastination stole 5 good years from me my friend :(,
Like the saying goes “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time to plant a tree in NOW”
If you do choose to accept this mission, there would be hard days but those days are the planting seasons and there would be fruitful days when you would be glad you put in the hard work.
It is left for you to decide? What do you want to make of the rest of your life here on earth?
Definitely not me!
Till Next time. STAY AWESOME
