The title might give you a clue to what’s coming here and it isn’t pretty or even very nice, but unfortunately the truth often stings and this is a truth that really can’t be ignored. At least not by anyone who is actually serious enough to want to make money from the time they spend online. What is this latest revelation to put a dent in the vast majority of wannabe Internet marketers?
Its all about chasing shadows.
By that I mean latching on to this or that latest, most innovative idea that some self styled money making guru has put out in the hope it’ll go viral and make them a lot of money off the backs of all the headless chickens who will follow them blindly down a blind alley. Its a shame but a truism nonetheless that people will follow where someone they see as an expert leads. Even if they lead them to certain disaster, which is what most of the gurus tend to do to their flocks.
The trick is to recognize a shadow when you see it!
They are all around and most of them promise a lot while delivering little or nothing. The old saying “if it looks too good to be true, then it probably is” should be uppermost in your thoughts when confronted with a “great idea to make money online”. Chances are, that “great idea” will make money for its creator but will leave you spending a lot of time chasing that particular shadow in circles and not making any money from it yourself. That wasted time would have been better spent working on your own long term income stream that you know works because you have actual proof it works. And I don’t mean some hyped up sales page statistical chart which is probably faked or doctored in some way to make it look highly favorable. Like “I made $3,000 in a week” should really read, “I worked my ass off for two years solid and eventually one week I made $3,000… but my average is closer to $300…”.
Ok, that’s the reality of working online. Most people who do make money, only make an average amount and often its just enough to consider it a working wage. But if you can get to that stage, you can truly say, hand on heart, that you make money online. Because you do and you are living off it! Then you are at least qualified to show others how you do it, if you want to that is.
Think about this.
If you really did find a working formula that made you, say $1,000 a week online on average and it kept producing income no matter what, would you want to sell that idea to a bunch of noobs for $47 a pop and expect to retire on the proceeds? No way, man! It does not compute. It does not add up. And it does not make any sense to do that. I certainly don’t go shouting from the rooftops how I make my money online. Hell, I don’t want the competition taking a slice of my pie and neither would anyone who really does make good cash online.
So what does that tell you about 99% of all the “golden opportunities” that are rammed in your face every time you surf for ways to make money online? Yep, they’re not what they seem. They are shadows and if you go chasing them you will be disappointed.
So the moral of this article is to find something that works for you and work hard at making it work. Its the only way to truly make money online, as there are no free lunches and shadows are fleeting at best. Good luck and I wish you every success.
