It’s Never Too Late To Start Something That Everyone Else Has Already Done

Who says we’re too late in the game?

We’ve read countless articles about how others have succeeded in their online business. But, whichever it is, most of us believe that it’s outdated once more people know how the system works.

It seems that we are always seeking to find the “next big thing” that would explode and help us become millionaires overnight.

And although there are cases where individuals can earn lots of money overnight, the chance of happening to all of us is close to zero.

When someone suggests to others about writing online, running an e-commerce store, selling on eBay, and finding gigs on Fiverr or Upwork to earn extra income, most of us will exit out of the article since we’ve heard it enough.

Yes, all of those works, but it only happens if we consistently put in a lot of time and effort. And that is something not all of us realize.

If we see successful individuals making a living online, I see common traits:

  • They’ve done numerous works before. And many failed.
  • They know the importance of showing up every day and putting in the work.

With their experiences in the past (usually failures), they had realized that it’s all about staying in the game long term.

When I started my writing journey, I saw many writers having their own business automated within their website and hundreds of thousands of subscribers in their email list. Unfortunately, it seemed as if it would never happen to me, so I didn’t follow their advice on writing online at first.

So, I’ve always looked around to find an easy route to make money online and only learned it’s unstable for most cases. So, my only solution was to stick with one project and push until it works out, and so that is what I’m doing right now, and I’m starting to see some success, thankfully.

But this doesn’t mean that we should just put in the time and effort into anything. We also need to be smart with the work we choose to do.
