One of the question I get on a daily basis is… Brent how do I make $1000/ day?
Ever time I read a question like this I know that no matter what I say they won’t believe me…
So I figured I’d just film a video that I can link to ever time I get this question in the future…
If you want to make $1000 a day you have to work at it for 5 years.
To many people want the $1000 a day in week one and when they don’t get it, they give up.
Now I’m sure you’ve heard a lot of “instant success stories” in fact looking back on my past that is how I portrayed it in my head and even said it publicly a few times. However, most of those are bullshit. People who are successful sometimes forget the struggles they had to endure to get to where they are.
Another thing you have to realize is, this isn’t all about making money. If you are going to dedicate your time and money your two most valuable resources you need to make sure that you are doing it for the right reasons.
Money as motivation has a strong flame early on, but as soon as that money doesn’t start to come in it burns out quickly…
Once people start to realize that this isn’t as easy as they were lead to believe… they give up.
Make sure that this is something you are interested in and something that you want to spend 5 – 10 years of your life doing and perfecting.
“Quick money” will work out sometimes, but as soon as it starts to show signs of weakness, you’ll instantly switch your tone and move on to something else.
You’ll make the most money from doing something that you truly enjoy.
You’ll have a much higher chance of success at it, because it’s something that you would be excited enough about to continue doing even if it isn’t hitting your monetary goals.
Me personally love tinkering with the computer and figuring out “puzzles”.
Because of this I love all the different ways to make money online, but you have to realize it wasn’t like I just woke up one day and had success at this.
When I first had the idea of making money online was back in 2004.
I was playing World of Warcraft and wanted to make money online to spend more time playing the game…
I researched how to make money on and off for 2 years before finally reading a book called Spacebankers by Ryan Moran.
Even after reading that book it took me a few months before I even made money from one of my “methods”.
The ironic part was the money came from something I didn’t even read about… I did some out of the box thinking and started selling software on Myspace to want to be hip hop artists.
I forget the name of the product but basically what it did was increase your Myspace play count.
Ever since that moment I’ve been figuring out ways to make money online…
However still to this day it’s not “easy” to make money online.
It takes a lot of time and money your two most valuable resources.
It’s also taken me 12 years to learn all of the skills I posses today…
Hell probably even more then that, because I learned how to use a computer when I was 4 or 5 years old.
My point is that you need to find something that gives you enough drive to actually have success at this and stick with it.
All the successful people I know have had several ups and downs but the main thing is they stuck with it even during the hard times.
