The #1 Reason Why You Are NOT Succeeding!
I know exactly why many of you are NOT succeeding yet...
I've literally seen 1,000's of people starting out here and many of them failing.
In this post, you'll see 3 real-life stories that will help you to understand this.
Please, take this as a message to lift you up from "No success" path to a better "Success" Path.
Your success in 2019 literally lies in this 1 thing...
Before I reveal you that 1 thing...
Let me tell you what happens to most people...
- They hear that by following the Wealthy Affiliate training they would make BIG money.
- They see that 1,000's of people are succeeding with it.
- They listen to testimonials daily.
- They go through my 7 actionable steps to make more money online in 2019.
- They know everything they'd need to make a life-changing income.
- They have all the resources and tools they need.
- They say they want to make +$10,000/month online...
- They understand that Jerry went from $0 to +$7,395/week in less than 12 months and it's possible to them as well.
But despite ALL that...
They're not succeeding and they're earning nothing...
Yes, you hear right!
Why does it happen?
What is the #1 reason that's holding them back?
The reason is that they're NOT TAKING ACTION.
Let me just give you 3 REAL-LIFE examples to illustrate the point that I'm making here.
(Keep in mind that I don't want to put down these people in any way. Just use as a valuable learning experience for all of us.)
1. "I Need Money Desperately. What to Do Now?"
Some time ago I got a private message at WA and the member said,
can you take a look at my site? I desperately would need to start making money with it now but nothing's happening. Please, tell me what to do?"
I was glad to receive a message from this person and have a look at the site because I was excited to see the progress.
But there was a great surprise waiting for me...
The website looked almost exactly the same like 6 months ago when I looked and it the last time and there wasn't almost any progress at all. He hadn't followed the advice I gave him the last time.
Key Lesson: You're not going to make big money at least if you keep your website the same for 6 months. My recommendation is that you publish at least 2 new high quality +1,500-word posts every week targeting a low competition keyword.
2. "I Will Publish At Least 3-4 New Videos Every Week..."
I was having dinner in Chiang Mai, Thailand with 2 of my friends. There was a guy who was running a profitable affiliate marketing business and a lady who was starting a YouTube channel.
At some point of the evening, the guy asked the lady what she was planning to do to build her channel.
The lady said that her plan is to publish at least 4 videos every single week from now on. She already had a lot of ideas in her mind what to publish.
That would make around 50 new videos in the coming 3 months, right?
Well, guess how many new videos she eventually published in the next 3 months since that conversation.
Only 1 or 2!
I still don't understand what happened to her...
She wanted to make money online, build a YouTube channel and have more influence.
But she was just talking and no action.
This is a story of +80% of people in my experience. Then they usually say:
"This YouTube thing doesn't work! I've tried EVERYTHING but I just don't get views!"
Yeah, right... You published 1-2 videos in 3 months... Let's get real here! :D
Key Lesson: If you're starting a YouTube channel, I recommend that you publish consistently new content every week.
Don't expect any significant results until you've published at least 100 videos in your channel. I stay this because most people quit just when they're about to get the breakthrough and it usually takes consistency to succeed on YouTube.
3. "Why Do You Work in the Weekend?"
Third person (or actually a group) is the one that sends me messages like, "I've been so busy recently. I'll get back to this when I get more time."
Do you recognize yourself? ;)
I guess that pretty much everyone can relate to that.
Nobody has more time and we will never get more time than others. But we can always have more time for the things that we prioritize.
At some point, I was working +50 hours in a week in a job, spending +10 hours a week in a gym hobby, and I still had time for making a significant progress with my 2 websites.
Because I made it a priority.
Of course, I needed to make sacrifices.
When my friends went skiing to the Alps every weekend (I was living in Austria at that time), I just stayed at my room learning and writing new articles to my website.
They said that I'm anti-social and some people laughed at work why I was working also in the weekend.
I said that I'm working to making my dream to become a reality and continued:
"Let's see WHO LAUGHS when I send you a postcard from the beach of Thailand while I'm making passive income online and you are still working 8-5 in this same office!"
Sure enough, I achieved that freedom and I know people who are still working in that same office. They wouldn't laugh anymore ;)
Key Lesson: You have enough time. You just need to prioritize things and make some sacrifices if you want to have a freedom to make a life-changing passive income online.
