I keep on hearing that 'if its too good to be true then it probably is'. In other words if you were offered the chance to make $100,000 this year and all it was going to cost you was $1,000 - $1,500 then it is unrealistic.
Strangely enough, many (if not all) of the people that would tell you that 'that is too good to be true', are people stuck in a 9-5 job. They believe in the security of a pay packet. And, they don't want anyone to challenge their comfort zone. They fear failing, and being judged by others, they fear rejection. What they fail to realize is that even in their comfort zone they are being judged. And, if they have not reach their full potential, then they have failed.
It wasn't that long ago I heard someone from consumer affairs stating on television that 'if its too good to be true then it probably is'. I'm not saying we shouldn't use reasonable judgment. But, the days are gone where 'too good to be true' stands up as being a 100% correct statement. This is a seriously broad statement to be making in an age of the Internet. I seriously doubt that there was ever a time when this statement was ever what people were really trying to say.
In this age of the Internet opportunities can give what were once considered 'too good to be true' returns. And even with a good opportunity some people will not succeed, that doesn't make it 'too good to be true'. More often than not I see people giving up when success was almost ready to bang on the door. Success takes belief, a different belief than the one that binds people to a life of wanting. Those who believe in their own success are already on the way towards being successful. The Internet doesn't take away the fact that a commitment and belief is still required.
So what is 'too good to be true'.
Making $15,000 this month with no money to start with, I would guess someone in New Zealand will do that this month, its not that hard.
Making 100% profit on your money within 24 hours, well I've seen that done many times over on the Internet, but it normally has its limitations.
Making $50,000 in the next 12 months, with little capital and just a few hours a week. There will be more than one person do that in New Zealand.
Making $800,000,000 in the next 7 years. Surely thats got to be 'too good to be true'. Lets hope no one tells Sam Morgan of Trade-Me fame.
I work with people every day that have changed their belief and have stuck at it until it was true. If you want to change your life for the better, don't listen to those that would tell you 'its too good to be true'. Don't let someone else limit you by their belief and fear. Believe in you, because those people that tell you 'its too good to be true' are not going to pay your bills. Believe in you, and go build the lifestyle you really deserve.
In this age of the Internet being self employed can be a fun, profitable experience.
