The Simple Secret to Wealth, And No, It Has Nothing to Do With Doing What You Love

Ok so today I want to talk about how to improve your chances with entrepreneurship. I recently watched a video that really made alot of sense to me so I wanted to come here and sort of some it up.

Basicly this is in regards to all the "guru speak" and why you should not fall for it. So I know you have heard these guys always telling you all these great ways to make money "doing what you love". Well, like the title says, it has nothing to do with doing what you love. I will explain this more in detail in a minute.

They will usually try to convice you to buy their "outstanding service" and join their success by telling you how "so many people are doing it with success". There are 1000s of people out there that have tried this and 1000s of people cant be wrong right?

Right. And Wrong. Let me explain. Okay so lets use a community as an example. Lets say there is a community with 100 people in it. All these people are contributing to one specific activity to keep the community running smoothly.

Ok so you have some iron workers, some garment makers, some cashiers etc etc. Now lets say that half of the community, 50 people are ALL iron workers. Would it make sense to join this community as an iron worker just because you love it? Do you think it would be profitable for you if all these 50 were good at it? Probably not.

But now lets throw the good little twist in there. Lets say that all the iron workers in the community suck! Yet you are very good at it. Now would it be a good idea and profitable? Probably so. Or lets say that you have some tools that allow you to do it better than them, lets say you have the lighter more powerful tools. It would still now make sense for you to join. And you would probably be profitable.

Now let me sum this up for you. I know this was kind of not what you were expecting when you decided to read this. Basicly what I am saying is that if you want to become a successful affiliate marketer or online entrepreneur, you need to only engage in the methods that you know you will be good at.

Dont decide to pick up these techniques and think that your are going to be making huge profits just because there are a million people doing it and so it must work. Internet marketing can prove to be a very harsh world with some really hard lessons to teach. This is especially true in the early stages.

Stay strong, continue to learn, and dont give up. Yes I said it can be harsh. But there are many benefits to reap as well. As an online entrepreneur you just have to be able to accept the fact that you WILL eventually fail. The successful ones only concentrate on when they do something right though, and learn from there mistakes.

I hope this has opened your eyes and mind to something. Feel free to leave you comments below. Good day.
