Internet Business – Persistence

Posted By Stan

Why do we want to have an internet business, assuming we do that is?

Generally, I believe it’s the oft quoted stat that 98% of people aren’t happy with their jobs so, want something, if not better, at least different. I don’t know where that stat comes from but it is a fact that most of us HAVE to have a job just to live.

Frequently with human beings what we HAVE to do we don’t always like!

Apart from that negative reason there is the other side where it’s possible to make a substantial amount of money from an internet business and eventually not be a slave to it.

Notice I said ‘eventually‘ not be a slave to it; because no matter how many sites tell you ‘make $1000 tonight’, ‘$23,411 by next week’ like any other business it will take time and work, a lot of work.

There may well be some get rich quick schemes that work but I haven’t found any and if you did, how long would it work for?

A real business is one that goes on being a business and that’s just as true for an internet business as it is for a real world business.

So, how long will it take and how much work? How long’s the proverbial piece of string?

I suppose it depends on what it is you try as an internet business, affiliate, your own product, adsense sites, whatever. It also depends on each individual’s ability and dedication. One thing’s for sure, it rarely happens overnight.

The one skill you need above all others is the title to this article – Persistence. No one can guarantee that you’ll make it but if you stick with it you increase your chances a gazillion times.

As Teddy Roosevelt said:

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Print it out, stick it by your computer, stick to it. If you do you can’t help but succeed.
