If you are even thinking in any way, shape or form of trying to make money online or generate an income from home, then this is probably the most important aspect you have to master. It requires discipline, perseverance and a bit of stubbornness thrown in for good measure. Without focus your efforts will be all for nothing. Unless of course, you happen by accident on some wild shot in the dark flukes you a fortune you can live on for the rest of your life.
Winners & Losers
If you look around you now or browse the papers, you can easily pick out the winners from the losers and the greats from the also-rans. Michael Jordan, one of the greatest basketball players of all time was driven and focused until he achieved his goals and then set them higher. Every day, before and after a game he was out there honing his skills. Every day he was out there training and bonding into the Bull’s team.
Clarity Of Purpose Makes Focus Easy
So plan exactly what you are going to do to make your money on the web. SEO, PPC, CPV, offering services such as writing or graphic designing and master it. Don’t veer away or get distracted by the shiny new systems claiming ‘MASSIVE Profits’ on autopilot or other similar garbage. The grass will always seem greener. It is human nature that we steer away from the difficult path. After all adapting and improvising, making tools and intelligent hunting is what forged our race into the dominant force on the planet. But you must resist the temptations.
What It Takes
I have a few questions to put to you now so that you can see just how focused you are and aren’t:
What do you want to achieve?
Exactly how are you going to achieve it?
What are the obstacles in your way?
What are you prepared to do to get to your goals?
Okay now that is done have a think about your answers. If you have a copy of Napoleon Hill’s ‘Think & Grow Rich”, have a quick flick though as all the real answer are in there.
So is it clear in your head. If you said something like “To earn $10000 by x” or anything very similar, then go to the back of the queue. You see to retain focus you need more than just a money target. That is merely a by product.
Second, you should have a clear plan of what you will do. Have a strategy and methodology that you can immerse yourself in, master and excel. Put all your energies into it. That brings us neatly to number 3. You have to truly believe that there are no obstacles that cannot be got around or conquer. If you don’t have this focused mind you will fail. You are going to take knocks like being slapped by Google or hitting a recession. That is the risk of making money online. That is the risk of business
Finally you should be prepared to do everything in your power and more to achieve your goals. This is not a game. This is not the Apprentice. The successful businessmen shed influences of negative people. They graft and work however hard it takes to get there.
This is what it means to have focus to earn money online. To put it nicely in summary:
“Be prepared to work today like no one else will, so you can live tomorrow like no one else can”
