"Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune."
You have heard it. And not only heard it. It has settled in your head. For some time you have been investigating and investing in yourself.
You have taken this course on how to use YouTube for your business and that course about The five steps to success. As soon as that one was over, you picked another one.
You are full of knowledge. Deep inside you are ready to make your fortune. However, in reality, you are not progressing anywhere, you are still making a living. You are standing still.
How is this possible? You have been self-educating yourself, haven't you?
What you have not been aware of is that you became a walking encyclopedia. The book of valuable knowledge, theory,
However and now be honest with yourself:
Have you applied any of this compiled knowledge in the real world?
If you are same as I was a few months ago, you still don't have your YouTube channel and you forgot all about The five steps to success.
On the other side, at this moment the websites are the priority. You are all into them. You are collecting all possible information like why you need them, how to build them, which themes to use, how to bring the traffic to them and so on and so on.
You are a sponge absorbing the information. But where are the actions? Have you thought why do you need to know how to drive the traffic to your website, when you have no website, yet?
Ridiculous, isn't it?
That was my big mistake!!! I was learning new things, studying daily, preparing myself for exams, beating deadlines, accumulating certificates.
However, I hardly ever actually used any of the gained information or skills. I mean I never practiced or tested the theory.
I was waiting until I'm perfect. Until I know it all. Then I will start to build my online empire.
Guess what? I was not ready in years. There was still something else to learn before I allowed myself to start. And if I did carry on like this, I would never have been ready.
I beg you not to make the same mistake. Because you will always be making a living instead of the fortune.
The big tipping point came when I joined a community of the digital entrepreneurs who have not only been teaching me how to make a fortune but they have been asking me to apply what I learned straight away. Before I know it all.
Exactly the opposite way I did all my life.
Do you apply what you have learned straight away? If not, please start doing it. Do not worry to make the mistakes because they will show you the next step. Because they are the part of the learning process.
Do not worry that you are not perfect, that you do not know it all, yet. Just start. NOW. Do apply what you have learned, see the results while you learn. Find the new horizons, feel the success, feel the movement forwards. The time is right now. You are ready. Believe in yourself. And help others to make this transition with you, same as I have been doing this first step with you.
Of course, before I found this community I tried many others. You know the Internet is like a candy store selling the dreams.
"Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming."
Choose wisely which bus you take. Focus on your dreams. Do not allow them to sell you their dreams.
Once you are sure this is the bus right for you, stick with it. It will be a hard work but stick with it. Because if you jump from one bus to another you will be hopping there and back. This journey will not bring the results you want.
Back to my community. Everyone can be found amongst this bunch of the same minded individuals. The true and caring leaders, people at the different stages of their online business. We are one big family supporting each other and helping each other to grow and most importantly to achieve our dreams.
Before I let you go, I'm going to ask you one last thing:
What is your 1 simple step towards making a fortune instead of a living?
Say it loud and honor it. Do apply what you have learned, take action and make your first small step towards your better future.
Because there is no get rich scheme that works. The only way to making money online is to set up a business, build relationships and deliver value to your customers. It's not easy but it's certainly rewarding.
