Never Lose Faith That You Will Succeed

When you first go online and either write an article, create an online store, or make a selling webpage you are often full of enthusiasm. In weeks you will be able to retire on the income, you can tell the boss in the job you hate where he or she can put that job.

Then what happens?

Not a lot really. Ten or a hundred people come to your work, maybe some will stay for more than a click through. Most will pass you by and you become disillusioned as to the benefits of having created anything.

You think of all the good things that job you hate gives you and you walk away from the internet.

In a few weeks your dreams are dust.

I have been in that position too. I had dreams, I lost those dreams and instead of going on to the next way out of a boring life of work, I held on. I am now in my seventh year of writing, blogging and owning a couple of retail stores online.

I now have residual income from articles, income from zazzle and cafepress stores am seeing returns from amazon affiliate and selling items on eBay and amazon too.

Do I still have a day job to pay the bills, yes. I like my day job because it helps me work at my other enterprises. Without my day job I know all my internet interests would become my day job and I don't want that.

I work at least forty hours per week at my internet enterprises. That is how it is but it is all fun. I work about the same hours at my day job too in paid and unpaid time, but again there is enough balance to keep that all fun.

Life should be fun and I have a lot of that in my life because I enjoy the  benefits of  a netincome  supported lifestyle.  It took me a few years to get to where I am so I will say.

You can do whatever you want if you don't give up after the initial enthusiasm has been blown away.

Keep the faith in yourself and you WILL succeed.
