Want to Make Money Online – What Would You Do If You Had a Gun to Your Head?

by Dean James



Not Knowing Exactly What to Do.

Above are just 3 things that stop people that WANT to make money online from advancing to ACTUALLY making money online.

Let’s take a look at those 3 things at a deeper level;

1) Procrastination – You know or have a good idea of what you should be doing, but there’s something stopping you. Maybe you want it to be perfect or you are unsure of one detail or technical aspect that sends your brain into meltdown.

It’s all a bit too much effort“, you think to yourself.

Before you know where you are, you’re watching the latest box set on television and you’ve achieved ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in terms of reaching your goals.

Solution: Imperfect action is what you need to take. Nobody knows ALL the answers when they are starting out, but IF you have a fair idea of what you should be doing, then start RIGHT NOW. Do not even think about doing it tomorrow – GO. GO. GO.

2) Laziness – It’s all a question of motivation, since most people without the right incentives tend to be pretty lazy. You want the Lamborghini, the luxury holidays, freedom to do whatever you want and the life without a boss breathing down your neck, but you’re not willing to take action and make a change.


If you just want to coast through life and not really make a mark, carry on being lazy and come back to this blog in about 5 years, at which point you’ll be older but your life will not have changed one iota. Time is going to keep passing, whether you like it or not. How does that make you feel?

That time will pass faster than a blink of an eye!

3) Not Knowing Exactly What to Do – That’s cool, you’re motivated but you’re just not sure of the exact steps you need to take.

First of all, you need to decide on what type of marketer you want to be. Do you want to create and sell websites, do you want to be a super affiliate…

Do you want to do everything, create products and market products/services as an affiliate as well? Depending on what exactly you want to do, will require a different approach.

So be clear on what you want to be INITIALLY and then get very good at it. If you want to be a blogger, you need to have a BLOG. I know that sounds ridiculous, but you’ll be amazed at how many people never make it even that far. Once you have a blog, you can create a report and give it away. You can build a readership and attract advertisers. You will learn as you go along.

If you feel that you need help, buy a course or go to the next level and get a coach who has done what you want to do.

A lot of this is common sense. If you want to learn how to grow bananas, your first step may be to buy a book on growing bananas like a pro 🙂 If your bananas aren’t growing as well as you want them to you can always find a pro banana grower who will give you the tips and tricks you need to be good at it. However, what you don’t do is ask advice from someone that has never grown a banana before in their life. Get counsel from people that have walked the path you want to go down. Yes?

So now all those points are covered, what would you do RIGHT NOW to make money online if someone held a gun to your head and said, “You have to make money online today by 9pm or it’s lights out“.

Obviously all this is hypothetical but what would you do?

I can guarantee you this much. YOU WOULD DO WHATEVER IT TAKES!

You would not procrastinate or be lazy. You would not make up excuses either.

You would THINK and then you would take swift ACTION.

Maybe you would just sell something on an auction site, or you would find a forum that wants to buy what you have to offer.

Or maybe you would offer your services on a freelance basis.

And on it goes…

If you want to make money online you have to take it seriously which means deciding on your business model and then taking ACTION.

Tomorrow never comes, when it comes to ‘thinking’ about doing something.

Learn as you go along, but always remember to do the one thing that day which will move you closer towards your goal.

It could just be writing a blog post like this one (I’ve just written 728 words in 9 minutes – so you can do it too!).

1) Take action
2) It doesn’t have to be perfect
3) Do the ONE thing each day that will make a difference
4) No excuses
5) Be consistent.

Until next time.
