No, that is not a blog post about how to break into one of the most competitive niches on the market. It is a comparison BETWEEN Internet Marketing and Weight Loss.
Like a lot of people, since I work from home, my best trained muscles are the ones on my fingers that busily type the whole day 😉 Sitting for hours without end before the computer, doesn’t help to keep your slim and fit. Ok, yes, it keeps your brain cells fit and your fingers slim, but that’s it. As I am not a big dancer myself, combining Online Income with Dancesport like Lis does, isn’t an option 😉
I have to resort to more traditional methods like reducing my calorie intake and increasing the amount of calories I burn each day. Read, diet and exercise ;-(
Now whilst eating healthy and going to the Gym, it occurred to me that there are similarities between loosing weight and internet marketing. This is what I came up with:
You need a goal, if you don’t know where you want to go, you will not get there. If you just say “I need to loose weight / get fitter” it will not work. You have to set yourself a goal like “in the next three months I will loose 15kg”. If you just say “I want to earn money online”, it will not work. If you say “In three month, I will have earned $1000.” that will get you working – and getting there!!!
You have to work to have success. Dreaming of working out in the gym will not loose you one ounce of weight, dreaming how to make money on the internet will not earn you one cent! You actually have to work to reach your goals.
Perseverance: You have If you say “I should go more often to the Gym.” you will go less and less often, until you don’t go anymore. If you say “I will go three times per week to the gym.” and stick to it, you will loose weight – and get fitter! If you say “I should build more niche web sites.”, it will not work. If you say, “Over the next three months I will build xyz niche web sites that are centered around buying, profitable keywords”, and stick to it, it will work. Perseverance is the key as well to weight loss success, as to success in making money online.
So I have set myself two goals: Loosing 20 kilos over the next three months by reducing my daily calorie intake by half and by going three times per week to the gym. Doubling my online income over the next three months by (forgive that I don’t reveal my methods for that ;-)) But I will blog about it, promised! 😉
