What if you DON'T make money online because of your laziness?

Don't get me wrong, but I've covered a path to online earning three years long and this took me into money making forums, blogs about making money and so on... Well, I've also found TONS of very lazy people who just want to have an easy system that makes millions. Anyway, one person in particularly, who made 9000€ monthly, kept on saying "don't be lazy and you'll make money like crazy". What he meant was that there are millions of way to make good money online, you just have to use them. He posted on a forum all of his methods and they all worked great; but, believe it or not, only few of the members of the forum were earning because the other did not even tried. Now, don't tell me here on Mylot there's no lazy people...I mean, take a look at all the money making sections; you will find posted everyday the very same question: HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE? And of course, the poor members post always the same answers. If you were not lazy, wouldn't you read at least the forum? Yes, this is a fourm and if you read it you could find your answers! I don't want to attack anyone, I'm just saying that I'm a little pissed off to see always the same posts...

Honestly, one can never make money online because of idleness or laziness. Where in the world can you find someone making money online because of idleness or laziness? I believe there are both active and passive income earners but that would be another story. Nevertheless, active income earners are those who almost spend the entire day earning for a living whereas passive income earners are those who somehow exert an effort for a living but doesn't double nor triple the effort just so to gain something at the end of the day. This includes businesses where one just seem to manage, oversee, and just sit down doing nothing except reviewing records and signing checks and reimbursement forms. That's it! I experienced doing it though.

I couldn't agree more with your words, plus online earnings are just offline ones; you get paid for something you do and NO, it's not sleeping! I really would like to have passive income, maybe I should start publishing some articles as others do. Did you really review records? Wow, it must be an awesome job! :)

Yap, it's one of my suggestions to publish articles online since it enriches the intellectual bank of readers as credit to your experience as well as to encourage readers with your literary pieces. Actually, I did review records especially in technical aspect such as report papers, report writing stuffs, case studies and theses (research works). It was something good since I earn just staying at home, sitting on my work bench and table reviewing, editing, and proof reading those works of literature. Mind you, it was a good start as a passive income earner!

I've no doubts about the fact that it was good, if I had a job like that in the comfort of my house I'd be the happiest person in the entire globe! May I ask you why you're talking at past, aren't you still doing that job?

yeah I agree, cause I'm willing to work very hard to make a decent income. I have been working very hard finding anything I can to make even a few bucks. I know if I use a collection of sites I should be able to make a steady income that is good enough for the time being. At my real job I make 8 dollars an hour so I feel that I could make that online if I keep working hard at it and I still feel like I didn't find all the right sites yet. If you have any websites that you could point me to to earn more I would really appreciate it.

These pages should help you find ways to earn more. While you won't earn eight dollars an hour to start, an article that takes you an hour to write may eventually earn you hundreds of dollars. So for that hour you spent writing it you would earn $100 or more over the years. That seems like a pretty good deal to me, so I keep on writing! Some things take even less time (designing a t-shirt, for example) so you could end up earning an average of $50 or $60 per hour invested over five or six years. http://www.squidoo.com/fifty-ways-to-make-a-dollar-a-day http://www.squidoo.com/one-year-plan-get-paid-to-write http://www.squidoo.com/second-year-plan-get-paid-to-write http://www.squidoo.com/backlinking-bookmarking http://hubpages.com/_38opkgokhrt1t/hub/fifty-ways-to-make-a-dollar-a-day-online

most people it seems want fast and easy money and want to do as little as possible for it. i have found that making money does take a lot of work!

yes, making money online takes time and effort, but only in the real beginning. If there's something I've learnt in more than two years of online earnings is that internet offers literally ton of way to make some good cash, and with time every system can be capable of 20$ a day...People make the terrible mistake to give up simply because they're not making AT LEAST 10$ a day from one system only...

Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who think they can make money online by not doing anything. They join program after program trying to find the one that will make them rich overnight. They'll never find it but they keep looking. I have referrals in all of my programs, including here on MyLot, who join and never do anything to make any money. I can't really figure it out. The guy you mentioned that said "don't be lazy and you'll make money like crazy" hit it right on the head. Anyone that really wants to make money online and devotes some effort to it will make money. It's that simple. How much you make depends on how much work you put into it. The others will keep joining and joining and never become successful and they'll always wonder why.

I also have few direct referrals around, but not here on mylot since i signed up just two weeks ago. Well, I once was used to look for referrals but as you said, it takes time and effort, and not always the effort is right considering that it's not guaranteed that they will work with constance. That'a why I usually join programs where I can rent referrals, because then it's all about money management and I'm quite good with that... Thanks for your precious answer :)

i clearly understand your message. some people are always looking for the easy way by not making an effort to read and understand previous explanations.

exactly, I just wish they could understand that this way it's like if they were not indipendent. Indipendence comes from knowledge, and knowledge come from researches! I guess that if a person doesn't really want to read other member responses then he/she shouldn't even sign up for a forum =.="

Yeah, when somebody asks me how to make money, I always say read forums. There are tons and tons of forums about money making, blogs and other stuff from people who are really earning. All it takes is a little effort to read and try the sites and you'll be definitely on your way. I just hate it when people ask and ask but they never do their research. I did mine, and it brought me to Mylot, and to other great sites that are still paying me after 2 years.

I know what you mean...I personally like a lot to enlarge my knowledge about money making methods, not by chance I usually spend more than 1 hour a day looking for new ones. I'm happy you found mylot, now you're on your way up to money :)

I agree that laziness is ramped. I have tried to help a vast many people. I have looked at their profiles to see if there was some thing that they could work with, some kind of idea. I have made many many suggestions. But maybe 1 in 1,000 will listen. For me making money online is about using my own ideas, hobbies, interests, talents, and skills. You are correct, there is nothing like waking up and checking your email to see how much money you have made while you were sleeping. And yes it take time. I can not begin to tell you the countless hours that I have put in. But it is all worth it.

I've also suggested some of my friend different ways to make money, they tried them but in the end they always gave up because they were not earning 50$ a day. Your last words are so true...if it's true that time is money (and IT IS)then it takes time to make money. Yes, money is worth time.

I wrote several articles at triond under the pen name of sgkeat. People must work hard and have patience. IF it is so easy to earn, everyone in here will be rich and no one need to do anything. If those that are not willing to work hard online, I am sure they are not willing to work hard offline too. So it all adds up. No earnings. I am glad you are not one of them.

dear tiffnkeat, I'm even glader to know that you're not one of them too! I agree with you when you say that if a person is lazy online than it's lazy offline too...I just wish people could understand that laziness is able to nothing but destroy

Then i could be very angry on me. Sometime i feel i am so lazy and that's why i can't earn much money from online. As we all know if we become very active then we can earn very good amount from online. So i am still trying to be very active as i want to earn more money. But i am not so much lazy that's why earning some and have read this discussion.

I really appreciate your honesty and the fact that at least you're aware of your laziness; but you don't give me the idea of a person who keep on asking how to make money if knows exactly how :)

In my case, it's clearly laziness. Probably 80% of the time I spend online goes to activities that aren't productive, like chatting, reading blogs, watching YouTube videos and so on. But the thing is, I am already tired after my day job and the house chores. I mostly want to have a bit of fun and relax with this online earning (and myLot is pretty cool for earning while relaxing). The long-term plan would be to find an activity which I really enjoy and which can make me good cash, but until that happens (or if it happens) I'll stick to cheap, but non-stressful methods.

Thanks for your answer, I appreciate it :) Of course I was not referring to people like you, who has an offline job and when gets back home is tired. If you wouldn't relax at the end of the day you probably looked and acted like a zombie...LOL You're tired, not lazy... It's nice to know that you earn even while relaxing, it's good!
