Why you must forget motivation for succeeding online and make money

Last Update: June 12, 2020

Hello guys I hope all of you are good today wherever you are.

Today I wanted to point out something which could literally help your online business skyrocket.

Are you ready?

Well as you read the title I said you must forget motivation.

The thing with a business is that it is more like you are building a house and this will require a different mindset.

Motivation is something which you look for from the outside in order to move forward.

I am sure you have seen or heard the saying that "motivation is what gets you started and habit is what keeps you going"

Well this is precisely true and the problem with people is that they are constantly looking for motivation to start writing their blogs and stuff.

If you are at Wealthy Affiliate you already have the first piece of the puzzle for success. You were motivated to start making money online.

Now you need to forget the motivation such as looking at quotes or things to lift you up.

This can serve as a big distraction for your business trust me. 10 minutes of looking at motivational posts can turn to 1 hour (you can do that when you have spare time).

So what is vital and what should come first for your business.

Now the habit is what I need you to focus on because that is what will make you money online and more.

Habit can be many things but today I will talk about things to move you forward in your blog.

Here they are:

  • Committing to writing your blog weekly or daily (depending on the time you have available).
  • Committing to work on your business (not in your business) . This can be done by looking at things on the outside to change, such as website theme, outsourcing your writing etc.
  • Researching the best people in your field who are succeeding and learning from them in some way.
  • Trying new things in your business to see which one works so you fail quickly and move to another which works. I have done that myself my post called WAYS TO INCREASE YOUR TRAFFIC SUPER QUICKLY.

The list goes on but I hope you get my point (your time needs to budgeted well).

The issue I usually see is that people tend to not focus on these aspects and then they end up not achieving what they want.

If you focus on motivation daily I am telling you that your success will lead to happening in 5 years whereas you were supposed to achieve this in just 2 years or a year.

The problem with motivation is that it is an energy sucker in a way because it is something you require daily.

Zig Ziglar said it well when he said that "People often say that motivation does not last, well neither does bathing and that is why we recommend it daily"

In essence ZigZiglar was basically saying that you actually need to make motivation of what you do a daily habit.

if you look at the history of the people who made big success of themselves they almost never talk about getting motivation from somewhere. You hear that they were in love with what they were doing so they did it 100% daily.

This is vital because sometimes your first business may not succed so you may have to divert to find another one. That is what happened for me anyway and many online business owners who succeeded.

I hope everyone can learn to use this for their success online and the results will really surprise you because you will just be moving forward daily positively.

I appreciate this post so much! it's like God answered my prayers lol. Sometimes I get unmotivated to write and I try so hard to find motivation, but in the end, I never get any work done. This reminded me that I need to create better habits instead of trying to find something that was already there a long time ago. Thank you!
