No, you cannot make money online if…
… you are infected with a certain internet virus.
And this virus is deadlier than those trojans and bugs that assault your computer. This one attacks your brain. Its target are those people – specially the newcomers – who try to earn online income. Once infected by this insidious bug, its victims become practically incapable of ever achieving online success.
What Is This Killer Bug?
It is the GRQ (Get Rich Quick) messages that abound on the net.
They catch the unsuspecting newbies who come to believe that you can make money online by doing little or nothing – just join this program or buy that foolproof system and you are set for an unending stream of dollars.
Caught by the hype-bug, such afflicted people fail to realize that their efforts are doomed to failure because they are trying to stand the law of economics on its head:
|You earn only if you provide some service or products to others. That is the economic reality. This holds true as much for online work as it does for offline work such as a 9-to-5 job, a plumbing job in the neighborhood home, a brick-and-mortar convenience store or a big corporation.|
But unmindful of this ground reality many keep on chasing one dream opportunity after another. I can tell you this because I was like that. After wasting nearly three years and losing more money than I could afford I was ready to give up on the very idea of making internet income as a big lie – a minefield of scams to snare honest people. Then luckily I chanced upon a post in one of the many forums that I had joined in my quest for easy earnings. But this post was different. It opened my mind to the reality.
The Reality of Online Earning
What that forum post said was simple and to the point:
No matter what someone told you or what you did, there is no such thing as a free ride. You have to give value to receive value.
Is this some earthshaking pronouncement, some divine revelation?
|No, nothing like that. Everybody knows this universal truth. I also knew it. But such is the power of hype that it had clouded my thinking into believing that money on the internet is up for grabs. That is why I am grateful to that forum contributor who, by stating the obvious, had saved me from further heartache and loss.|
And in a humble attempt to pay it forward, I am passing that message to you in the hope that you might find it helpful in your endeavor to make income from internet.
So if you intend to make money online or are trying to do so but not succeeding at it, do examine your thinking to see if you are the victim of the hype bug. Cleanse it from your system and you will see instant positive changes in your life.
Accept the futility of trying to get something for nothing or to get rich overnight and here is what will happen instantly.
- save on internet time which you waste trying to find the ultimate opportunity
- spot the hype a mile off
- think thrice before spending your hard-earned money for a surefire system from an internet ‘guru’
- be free from stress and frustration of trying to achieve the impossible
With faulty thinking out of the way, you are more likely to succeed on the net. Make money online as so many are indeed doing.
This is because now you know that you have to learn the workings of an opportunity before you try to earn with it – be it any internet earning options that you will meet on this site and elsewhere on the internet.
This is the reason while presenting various earning resources on this site, I have endeavored to present all the aspects of an opportunity be it the affiliate programs, freelance work or making a web site – how the particular earning option works, what you need to know and do about it and what to expect by way of results.
