This Is The Most Important Thing To Learn About Making Money Online This Year
I consider this article to be the most important article I have ever written since I started my online career in 2007.
That’s a very serious thing to say considering that I have written hundreds of articles and created many courses.
I am going to try to make it as short as possible.
What you are about to read is the number 1 reason why many people struggle online and offline.
I will also make a prediction.
99% of the people who will read this will not take any action.
Many will keep doing things the same way and still get the same appalling results they have always had.
What I am about to reveal is stupidly simple but very hard for most us to do.
It is also counter intuitive and is against popular wisdom about making money.
It is the same thing that has helped countless millionaires become rich.
Whether knowingly or unknowingly …they have followed this principle.
I am also going to say some things about churches.
This may piss some people off.
As usual …I no send.
The truth must be said.
Whatever the case …here it is.
First …and very important…
If you want to make money online …stop thinking about making money online.
Stop thinking about yourself, your pocket and the money you want to make.
Start thinking about other people and what they want.
Start thinking about the goals people have.
Let that sink in for a few seconds.
You see, the usual thing many of us do is to think about how we want to make money from other people…
When we wake up in the morning, we think about what we want to eat.
What we want to do.
How we want to accomplice a certain goal or plan.
We are all naturally self-centred.
And guess what…
That’s the reason many of us till wallow in poverty and lack.
Let me explain.
Zig Ziglar once said …” You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
The meaning of that quote is simple…
Until you stop thinking about yourself and start thinking about what people want.
…the goals people have…
…The dreams people have…
…The problems people want solved …
…You will not get what you want (which is the wealth and money you want)
Until you stop thinking about how you want to make money…and start thinking about how you can help people achieve their dreams and goals (and make money in the process)…money will never come.
Knock that into your thick skull.
There is another obvious thing you need to know…
Money Comes From People.
All the money made by millionaires and billionaires comes from other people.
So unless you want to criminally mint your money or steal from others, (like the shameless politicians) you can only get money from people.
And people can only give you money when you give value …and value is created when you can help people achieve their goals…solve their problems …or achieve their dreams.
And trust me everyone has a problem or a dream or a goal.
If you take time to watch ,listen to people and ask them questions …you will know the problems they have and can help them solve it …and in the process make money.
I repeat, if you discover these dreams, goals and problems and can help these people …you will make money.
Yep…i know this is something many people hate to hear…but it is the truth.
Now Funny Stuff In Church…
You see, I laugh when I go some churches and see some pastors scream …”receive wealth, receive prosperity” etc…and the congregation roar Amen.
Later they congregation go back home and do nothing…and expect prosperity to come forth.
They wait for prosperity to come knocking on their door by doing nothing.
God is not a fool.
The bible says…
“He shall bless you by the works of your hands…”
What do you think is the works of your hands?
It is the value you create for others.
Until you solve problems people have and create value for others …so will not make money.
Okay…I Know This May Be Sounding Quite Foreign…So Let Me Bring It Home To Internet Marketing And Making Money Online.
Do you think Linda Ikeji makes money because she has a blog?
No …she is prosperous because she writes about what people want to read.
Take note …what people want to read.
And this works for whatever online business model you choose.
Stop thinking about yourself …and start thinking about people.
Start thinking about what people want.
This is a serious mind-set shift…
Those that will take heed will prosper.
Now…Why Did I Write This In The First Place?
Well something happened today.
You see, I have just created a course for kindle publishers…so to get testimonials for my sales page…I posted a comment on a Facebook group saying I was giving out the course in return for some testimonials from readers.
This is what I got.
Now because I created solid value and solved a problem many kindle publishers have, these guys were rushing my free offer and singing glowing praises about it.
I want you to stop for a few seconds and think about this.
Was I selling a course that said “make $1000 in one week”?
What I Did Was solve A Specific Problem They Had.
I want you to stop and check yourself.
Have you been pursuing money or have you been helping people?
Have you been just thinking of how you can make money online instead of thinking about how you can help people achieve their goals and dreams?
From today make a change.
When you wake up in the morning ask yourself…
What do people want solved in my niche?
What can I create (products and services) to help people in my niche realize their goals?
What website can I create to help people solve a certain problem?
What article can I write to help people solve a problem or reach a goal?
Of course there are other tiny details about doing these things…but the most important first step is this mind shift.
I love to hear your thoughts on this .
