When I attended a motorsport event recently and I am always amazed at the amount of money some people have. There are sometimes sports cars on sale at around £ 250,000 each!
At this particular event there were people racing older cars which were worth a fortune. We are talking formula one cars from the 1950's to the 1980's and some seriously old cars from the 1930's!
I would not like to think how much these cars are worth! And the people that own them were racing around the race track like there was no tomorrow, they were not holding back, you would think that they would be a little worried about smashing them up!
And not only smashing their precious car up but these things had nothing in the way of safety either so they could easily kill themselves in the process too!
The formula one cars from the 50's were literally a tube with a V8 bolted to the back.
Anyways, I could talk about this all day but the main point I want to make here is that you realize there really is no shortage of money when you go to an events like these. You start to realize just how much money some people have gotten.
Now do you think that these people make their money by working for somebody else?
I'm sure that there are many people out there that are expecting a really good living with their jobs but most people have an average income. So what about the people who are very, very rich?
Do they work a 9 to 5 job for somebody else?
No, of course they do not, the majority of very rich people had started their own business and built it up into their own little empire over time. It is the only way to become seriously wealthy.
Even if your intention is not to become seriously wealthy but to just be better off, then starting your own business is by far the best option. When you start a business you are building something for yourself and not helping to build somebody else's business.
If you work hard enough then the potential is always there to become seriously wealthy.
Let me ask you … When did you get a pay rise? If you had a pay rise recently, was it any good?
What if you could raise your income yourself in your spare time? What if you could earn yourself an extra £ 200 a month? Would that help you with the bills and give you a few extra luxuries in life?
If £ 200 extra per month is all that you want then that's fine but once you get to your £ 200 per month goal then you may want to try more and there's nothing stopping you from trying to achieve more.
Unlike your employment when you are paid by the hour and the only way to earn more to do more hours and / or beg your boss for a pay rise. At the end of the day it is your boss that decides how much money you'll have at the end of each month.
You need to be the boss – take control of your own destiny and take control of your own finances.
That is the only way to make yourself much better off than you are now. I can appreciate that it's hard to get yourself motivated and get started. There are many things in your mind telling you why you should not do it, I've been there myself.
It's the fear of failure, low self belief, too much information to take in, where do you start, who can give you accurate advice, afraid to take a risk, do not have any technical knowledge etc.
These are all obstacles that your are planting in your own head. I've been there before, you need to smash these thoughts and just do it. If you do not then one day you may look back and wish that you did not give it a try.
An online business is a fantastic business to start because there are no massive risks involved.
There's no need to quit your job to get started, there's no massive start up costs or running costs and you can run it in your spare time. That is just a few of many benefits of an online business.
If you want to start an online business and £ 200 per month sounds good to you and a potential to make much, much more then I recommend you get yourself a system in place that has reoccurring billing. A system where people pay you each and every month.
This is great because you then know how much money to expect in your bank account each month as opposed selling products that might fluctuate. A great way to do this is to set up a membership site.
Now I'm not talking about a traditional membership site as these can be a headache especially when starting out. I'm talking about a 'Fixed Term Membership' (FTM) site. This is a site where people sign up and pay you each month for information to be sent to them.
The information that you send lasts a set amount of time. You may send out information once a week for a year or once a month for a year or fortnightly for 6 months it's up to you.
This is not difficult to do; it just requires you to get rid of all those thoughts that are holding you back and a small investment. Every business has to invest a bit of money and time to get going. Fortunately the internet is cheap!
Of course, if this is not the route for you there are many other ways to boost your income online. You could become an affiliate and sell other peoples products for them and receive a commission for each sale.
You can find affiliate products out there with reoccurring billing and you get paid a commission for each payment for as long as your referral lasts a paying customer. At least this way you do not have to worry about creating your own products
There are so many different ways to make money online, just find one that suits you best and find some good reliable information or purchase a course. Then very importantly, take action and put into practice what you have learned!
It's time to take control of your life now and get started with an online business. Get rid of all those negative thoughts and just do it!
You CAN become successful! It's up to you just how successful you want to be.
