Anyone here for internet marketing? Well, my hand is raised, is yours?
Internet Marketing has so much potential, yet so few people make money from it. Why is this? My belief is that there are two reasons:
1. A complete lack of motivation and a inherent laziness
2. Fear of success
The 1st reason will probably be very obvious to you. People are naturally lazy. The people that make the money are highly motivated and always busy doing constructive work. If you consider yourself to be busy working, but are getting no where fast, ask yourself if you are doing constructive work which is generating money, or are you doing hamster work and only working on things that don’t generate more money.
The second reason might sound a little strange. A fear of success holding you back from making money. I don’t really know how else to explain it. It’s like, people know what they should do to be successful, they know the steps they need to take to get there, they have all the information and knowledge available to them…and yet they fail to capitalize on it.
To actually start making lots of money would take them outside what they are used to maybe, or the added responsibility would take them out of their comfort zone.
I wish I could explain my theories on Fear of Success more eloquently, but I have failed. I know people that know precisely how to make money, they could make $100,000 in the next week if they really wanted to. But for some unknown reason, something is keeping them back.
Some marketers I think refer to this as stepping outside your comfort zone. If you are content with what you are currently earning, there is sometimes no motivation to step out of this comfort zone, to take a few risks and start on the path to earning real money. It’s like breaking the status quo holds an unspoken fear for them.
Hmm, how did I get started on this subject.
No idea, it’s not my fault.
The reason of this blog entry was supposed to be to tell you about the new site I’m developing over at IntMark Online. It’s very much a work in progress, but I’d appreciate any comments. What do you think, mum?
