Working online, stay motivated

Updated on July 28, 2012

Working online, stay motivated

Working online to earn extra cash seems a great idea to begin with, but over time many who once started working online either get fed up with the idea or they become bored. Working online just means just that, work. Without working, putting in the hours you won’t get very far. We all seen the ad’s “and you too can earn $$$” per month. To be totally honest there isn’t anything like that and if you believe there is your in for a surprise indeed. when I first turned my head towards working online I believe it too. Thinking that after uploading or doing what the website wanted of me I would be making $$$ per month, I was so wrong.

2010 my luck changed

Until 2010 I been looking to earn extra cash online, getting my computer to earn it keep. Maybe if it all worked out I could give up my job and life online earning money from the internet. I joined site after site, but I soon found out they were nothing more than scams. In 2010 my luck changed, I’d been away from the internet and online earning for maybe a six months to a year. I given up on the idea that was until I saw a film.

Hubpages and RedGage

I saw the film Julie and Juliet and I wanted to write, the film inspired me to go back to the internet and to start to look for something new. I came across Hubpages and RedGage. My earnings started to grow and got paid for the first time. It was only pennies to start with then turning into dollars. I worked hard, putting in hours, learning what I needed to earn for the online sites. I listen to other people who were earning, how they had earned their online money. Everyone can do it, it’s just the matter of sticking with it and working at it. You need to believe that it will work for you.

Staying motivated

Staying motivated I know is sometimes hard to do especially when things don’t always go the way you planned them. Plan what you want out of working online, set goals, achievable goals, not something which you know won’t happen. Set realistic targets, weekly, month and yearly and work towards them. Do forget the small things which can easily be over looked, always keep a note book and pen to hand, you never know when something enters your head. Write it down, not matter what it is or how meaningless it may seem.

Not rocket science

Always be looking around you, seeing what other people are doing. Seeing how the top earns earn their money, don’t forget we all can earn from working online it not rocket science. We all came from the same beginning, we all started earning pennies and those pennies grow, just believe and it will happen. Don’t be scared to ask questions, self promote your least blog or your newest photo you just taken, go and tell the whole world. Don’t be scared of what your friends or your family may think of it. Many of my friends laughed at me for earning a few pennies online, that make me more determine to make working online work for me.

Believe in it and it will work for you.

Thank you for taking time to read my work, take care and have fun.

      Great motivational reminder. Everyone thinks working online = easy. Wrong. What it does = is freedom to possibly follow your passion and it also puts you squarely in control. You really need to believe in yourself to stay motivated and on track. Loved your message! Voted up and sharing.

      wow, this is great.

      I'd like to take a few days off work to get a jump start. It's so busy now though.

      Last time I took vacation days, I ended up sick! Need to grab a sick day to get rolling with computer time.
