Why You Are Still Broke
You hear all these stories about people starting businesses and making money on the side, and you get excited by their success but when it comes to your own you start to make up excuses. What you don’t see or hear about is how TERRIFIED they were to start charging clients for your products or services.
We are telling you this because we want you to know there is no magic formula and that anyone can do it.
This stuff isn’t rocket science. But it takes you putting aside those barriers in your head — the one telling you, “You can’t do this…you don’t have an idea…you’re not an ‘entrepreneur’…why would anybody listen to you…you know NOTHING about business!”
Thousands of other people are doing it. Now it’s your turn.
Think of it like this:
Someone’s going to do it. Why should it be someone else? Why shouldn’t it be you?
So, today we’re going to talk honestly about some of the mental blocks people have about generating extra income on the side.
“I don’t have an idea”
We believe that we all have something special that we’re unusually good at. If we met and talked for 20 minutes, we know we could dig it up. Maybe you can teach dogs to do tricks like our friend Tom. Maybe you’re an expert Fufu Pounder. Or maybe your friends always come to you for amazing relationship advice.
When you say, “I don’t have an idea,” that’s really code for, “I’m waiting for a magical idea to fall down from the sky.”
NEWS FLASH: THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN! Ideas don’t happen to you, you find them. You have to look at yourself and examine your own skills, then “test” them for profitability.
Your brain will try to persuade you that there is NO idea with which you can start a side business. Listen closely. You CAN find a business idea — We can show you how — and go from idea, to first profit, to a successful side business.
“It’s not the right time”
You’re right. It’s not ideal. But were the last 6 months? Will the next 6 months be any different?
The truth is, THERE’S NEVER A PERFECT TIME! You’ll never be fully ready to get married, you’re never going to be 100% financially prepared to have kids, and you’ll never feel entirely ready to start generating extra income.
The most successful people don’t wait for time…they MAKE it.
And those doubts? Doubts are just the reminders that we’re on the right path. All of us battle with them. But average performers let these doubts control them. Who wants the monotony of waking up, going to work, answering emails, going to sleep, and repeating…for 30 years?
Today, you can change your future.
“I’m not sure this is right for me”
At a certain point, you have to stop reading and start DOING. You have to DECIDE to bet on yourself. Other top performers, like CEOs and professional athletes, get trainers and coaches because they know the power of investing in themselves.
You can go on waiting for some mythical information that will change your mind. Or you can choose to take action.
It’s not about more information — it’s about making a decision.
Today is the day to decide
