One of the things that most people do not realize is that they have enough information on how to make money online.
However, because getting new information online through the internet is so quick and easy most people just get overwhelmed with it, thus resulting in "information overload". This tends to get people trend hopping, moving from one money making opportunity to the next.
Copywriter writes sales letter, and they do a good job in writing high converting sales letter that attracts visitors to make purchases. And it's also one of the easy ways to deviate a person from his current task to make money online.
For example, John is currently doing up a website publishing Google AdSense and to make money from it, he is 60% completed when he found another opportunity where he could be making good commission promoting affiliate products, and while he was almost 60% to 70 % completed in promoting the affiliate products, another opportunity pops by. In the end, nothing gets completed and the learning he made online does not justify the amount of time he put in.
This is the time when most people simple cave up, and decided that it's not easy to make money online from the Internet, it's not for them. While at the same time, many others are making 3 to 6 figures of income online from the Internet.
What you can see here is the total lack of FOCUS. As with any other businesses, being focus is important, and it's also one of the critical elements that differentiate the amount you can be making online and the level of success in your online venture.
There are many ways to get you focus, some of recommendation could be:
1) Writing out a daily tasks list
2) Have a calendar of short term goals and deadlines
3) Have a vision board
The main objective here is to have something in writing, where you can see it easily, and touch it. It is much more powerful to write down the list on paper than having it in your head. Try it.
Having a vision is important, it tells and reminds you where you want to go and what you want to achieve, and then you can work things backwards.
There will definitely be many opportunities passing by, and when a fantastic opportunity comes by, it does not need that that you have to take it. Depending on your vision, you have to decide whether this opportunity compliments your vision or distract you from it.
