You're not an employee anymore so stop acting like one!

Last Update: August 08, 2019

Why is it that someone shows up for work and complains about being there?

Now be honest with yourself. When you read the question, you immediately thought about going to work at your job because you have to earn money to pay bills. Right?

If you didn't think this way then this blog post is not for you.

The question refers to someone showing up here at Wealthy Affiliate to work on their dream and then starts to complain about all the things required to succeed.

The reason for this is because of still having an employee mindset.

Let's get real here.

You must understand that in order for your lifestyle to change one bit, you're going to have to change the way you think and this will lead you to make different choices. Yes you have to sacrifice what seems comfortable for now and pay the prices of working harder than you've ever worked in your job.

The pain of working harder is not physical work, although you will need to find extra hours in your day, but the working harder is in your mindset.

So how do you start working harder?

Here are 3 ways to get you started:

#1 - read 2 books per month. One book should be about success mindset and the other about business success.

#2 - get up early... very early in the morning. The fact is that entreprenurs get their work done by 7 am. The rest of the day is to manage. So find a motivation that will help you get up early and get to work.

#3 - follow every step of the training provided by Wealthy Affiliate. Don't skip anything! You start with the Online Entrepreneur Certification and only after you're done with all the assigments then you can move on to the Affiliate bootcamp.

Now if you noticed here in this post, I don't mentioned anything to do with making quick cash. Because you will not!

If you're here then you better have a long term goal to train hard and prepare to run your personal online business. And of course along the way, you will have the unique opportunity to meet some awesome online entrepreneurs like yourself.

Now is your turn... tell me what's your #1 reason why you can't make money online?

That's so true. And even with the training within reach, some people give up too soon. Thanks for the comment!

I also had to work around my excuses. One of my excuses a while ago was that everyone was doing it already so what impact will my business make. That was an old excuse because I can tell you that we are all unique individuals and our message will resonate with a few who are waiting to hear it. Whatever your excuses are... pick one and take a positive action to change it. Karin, you can do this!

One of my biggest lessons was to just get started. I used to feel that everything needed to be perfect. I needed to learn and keep learning before taking action. I always felt I wasn't ready or it wasn't good enough yet so I would never launch with my ideas. Well, I found that successful business owners take action first and fail quickly to learn from their mistakes and make it better as they go along. They never give up and they don't look back. Just keep pushing forward until it works. It's never going to be the right time and most likely you'll never feel ready to get started. That's why you must start now and it's okay to make mistakes. Shake it off and keep moving forward toward your ultimate outcome.
