Start the right way when looking at passive income streams.

There are a couple of things that you have to keep in mind when you look at earning an extra income. I want to have a look at some of the pitfalls that people fall in when they start their search.
 
I have seen many people fail and all for the wrong reasons. When they quit, they will slam that system or say that earning an extra income from the net is impossible. I understand their frustration, I have been there as well. I have seen and experienced what works and what does not.
 
Let me start by saying this, it's not easy. Whatever people tell you or whatever promises are made out there, it's not true. If you want to start making money online, you need to understand a couple of things. I will list them and talk about each in more detail.

Get your attitude and  mind right

This is arguably the most important thing you must realize. Many people look for extra income streams because they hate their current jobs. Some cannot make ends meet and look for additional income streams.
 
Nothing wrong with that, we all have our reasons. I lost my job and started looking at income potential from the net. I soon realized that this is not a quick fix. I realized that this was going to take time. I almost quit after a couple of months, but I saw the potential of the systems I use such as Be Motivated Today. I got another job and vowed that I will never be in that stressful position ever again.
 
Things don't always end up the way you plan it. I soon discovered that this is not going to happen overnight. You have to choose wisely and spend time on it. End of story.
 
Bottom line, if you want to start making money online, then you need to give it time. This is what I mean by getting your attitude and mind right. You need to look for potential extra income streams that will work. Maybe not in 2 or 6 months but 2 or three years or even longer.
 
Get your mind right. Say to yourself that you will succeed. Keep going, don't quit, never quit. If you choose the right system, then you cannot quit. It's impossible to quit.
 
Don't fall for the, "get rich quick" talk on web pages. I have said it a million times, there is no such thing as getting rich quick. If this were true we would all be millionaires doing nothing. Get the idea that passive income is income where you sit and do nothing, and earn big bucks, out of your head.

Choose wisely when you want to start making money online.

This is another important point. When you start your search, you will be presented by thousands of online systems and schemes. These guys will make unbelievable claims and statements about what you can earn.
 
They probably don't lie, but they don't tell you that you'll have to work your butt off to get it. They don't tell you that you'll have to dedicate most of your spare time in the system. "Just a couple of clicks and you have your own cash sucking website", some banners read.
 
I have to give it to them. They know how to write a landing page. Man, I sometimes get sucked into these empty promises. Luckily I have been there and know this is simply not true. You see, they have been at this for a long time. They know that people are looking for quick ways to make money on the net. They know that people will pay to get this information. They know that it takes time and experience. So, yes, they make money, but they take yours so they can look good and keep promoting their product.
 
Okay, so what's the right system?
 
To answer this question, let me tell you what happens a lot to me. If you look at my home page, I strongly suggest that you start with Be Motivated Today. The reason is that it's the best way to start making money online. If you really work at it, you could see results fairly quickly.
 
Now, by results I mean you could start to earn a small passive income in a short period, 6 months, time. The thing is, you will see results. That's quite important. Most of the times people quit is because they don't see results. They keep on spending money on some system, but they don't get any returns. This is the reason why most people just quit.
 
The problem is, that when they read what Be Motivated Today is all about, they just frown and say, "This will never work" or "This looks like a pyramid scheme" or "I will never get people to join". Some will sign up for the 14day free trial and never go further than that. Some will sign up for silver membership, and quit after a while.
 
Now if I tell people I also trade Forex, they immediately sit up and look very interested. They want me to take their money and grow it for them. They want to immediately register for an account and start trading. They think that this is the answer to their problems.
 
Let me be honest here. If you think Forex trading will make you rich, then think again. I have blown my account completely in the past because I also thought Forex trading is easy and you can make a lot of money. Forex trading is very risky and I would advise any newcomers to trade on a demo account for at least a year before you even think of going live.
 
So, I would not even start to recommend Forex trading to start with and yet people would rather loose their money this way than start with Be Motivated Today. I'm telling you that with Be Motivated Today will will get steady returns if you work on it. It might be only a little in the beginning, but after a couple of years you could earn a very good passive income from it. I just don't get people sometimes. Choose between BMT and Forex, and they go for Forex. Go figure.

Make time to work on your income streams

If you decide to start making money online then be prepared to spend some time on it. Dedicate some hours in the week to it. It doesn't matter what you decide to do.
 
If you decide to create a website and use AdSense or affiliate marketing, then make time to create good content. Don't just create the website with a couple of pages with adsense adds and affiliate marketing links. I promise you nothing will happen. Nobody will visit your site. Nobody will click on your links because the search engines does not think you are serious about your niche.
 
The search engines will not have enough pages to index and will just move your web page ranking way down. Work on this. Create good content. Show that you know your stuff about your niche. If you ask successful web site owners what their secret is, they usually reply, "Content, content and more content".
 
Creating this content takes time. It does not happen overnight, but if you work on it, it will happen. Make some hours available and grow your content steadily. Write good informative articles. People like websites where they can learn something or where they can find solutions to their problems.
 
If you decide to sign up with Be Motivated Today, then make some time to visit the BMT website and learn as much as you can. Work on your methods to invite people. Read the motivational emails that you get everyday. It only takes 5minutes or so. Have a look at all the different methods to invite people and spend some time on this.
 
If you decide to go the Forex trading route, then learn as much as you can about Forex trading and how it works. What are the indicators and how you can use them. Spend some time developing your system and demo trade it until you can see consistent  profits.

Conclusion

I really don't want to discourage you to start making money online. This is definitely not what I'm trying to do. In fact I'm trying to convince you to start with something. All I'm saying is that you need to be realistic about this. Don't expect quick results. Work your way towards your goals. Start slow and build up momentum. It will happen. 
 
Times are tough. You are reading this cause you need some extra money. I'm earning some extra money at the moment through Be Motivated Today. I always say, if you don't want to start with BMT, then start with something. If you think I'm writing nonsense then fine, have a look elsewhere, but at least do something.
 
It's really great if you start making money online and get your first paycheck. It's a really great feeling to see money paid into your bank account and you know you earned it through the internet and through hard honest work. I always get a kick when my commissions are paid by Be Motivated Today at the end of each month.
 
Have fun. Life's a journey, enjoy the ride.
