I was surfing the internet, looking for idea's to make money, that I could do from home, when I ran across that quote from Gandhi, that "A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes", and I was absolutely stunned. I have been using this concept the last month or so, literally thinking that I will succeed in this venture. I have been treating my affiliate marketing pursuit, just like a real job. I wake up in the morning, get my daughter off to school, then hop in the shower, get dressed in office clothes, and then by 8Am i am in my "office".
I have been working on this, everyday, 5 days a week, from 8AM to 5PM, and even refer to this room as my office. In my head, this is what I will be doing, to make myself successful, even though I know that it will take some time, to build up an audience, find my "niche", back-link every article, post my links to different advertisements, do surveys, read the paid emails, and post different items on E-bay. I hope, that by this time next year, i will have gained modest success. I know that this method is not going to make me rich, but it can develop into an honest income. One of my other goals, is to reach a level that Teri can quit working her current job, and work with me. That would be great.
I know I am not making a lot of money right now, but it does feel nice to be able to put money into Teri’s bank account on a weekly basis, and have all our bill's paid.
I guess the point of this, is that I really believe that I will be successful, so if Gandhi’s words hold true, it is not a matter of if i will make it, but when I will make it.
