The Magic Wand Mentality

Written by Ryan Ambrose  · November 29, 2009

This particular mental hazard can severely harm not only your chances for creating an online business, but your life as well.

Summing it up is very simple. Magic wands are things you just wave around and POOF, instant results. They’re very entertaining…as fictional props in magic shows. In your way of thinking, not so much.

Generally speaking, the magic wand mentality can be defined with two erroneous points:

1.) There is some magical, but elusive, solution that will take you from nothing to prosperity in your online business.

2.) If you don’t know what that solution is, you can’t get anywhere.

This way of thinking serves to cause two hindrances as far as making money online goes. It makes you very susceptible to scams and people promising magic wands, and it keeps you from taking the real, but not so magical steps to make your business grow. In fact, you may get so frustrated looking for magic wands, you burn out and give up on it.

There is no magic wand to making money online. There are things that work, things that work best for you, and things that don’t. The trick is to find what works for you, perfect your technique with it, and then continue to work it until the cash starts to flow. From there, you just keep working it to make more money.

Resist the trap of believing that there is some magic way to suddenly have an online income. It will keep you out of trouble and prevent you from burning out over misspent efforts trying to find magic wands.

    Excellent post Ryan! When I stopped chasing magic wands it made a HUGE difference in my online success.

    Yes, this was the biggest hurdle for us moving forward. There are so many “magic wands” for sale out there. And if the story of Jack and the Beanstalk is any indication, this is not a new phenomenon.

    I really like your blog, you seem to have alot of experience and understanding of affiliate marketing and the Internet in general. I know what you mean by wanting a get rich plan that is guaranteed and that doesn’t require any sort of work.

    It doesn’t exist. Successful people do things alot different from the average 9-5 worker. I have this Info at my blog. It will blow you away how simple the difference is between highly successful and just surviving people.

    When I first realized this a week ago it changed my life. It is still incredibly difficult for me to do, and I am still struggling with it. The post is called Secrets to Success to find out what exactly im talking about.

    By the way if you are spending all your time learning and watching and listening to Gurus, and successful Internet Marketers you will not be making any accomplishments of your own except gaining knowledge you are not applying.

    We live in a society that wants instant results. We have been told that it’s easy to make money online, if you know the secret. Funny, everyone wants to sell you their secret.

    Sorry, there in no secret to making money online, just participles that must be followed. I too am on a journey to making a living online, and I’m showing everyone my steps. Please follow and encourage me in this journey.

    This is so true. Many people become interested in growing their own business online, but many believe its easy when it really takes time, effort , and dedication like any other thing that is worth having.
