The Real Reasons Why So Many Fail In Home Businesses

It is a known fact, that over 95% of the people involved in Internet sales, marketing, sponsoring or recruiting fail at it. There are reasons for this huge failure rate. 95% of the time, the vast majority spend most of their time searching for a magic bullet, a magical program or method that will unlock the reported easy-no-effort wealth that is suppose to exist on the Internet.

Success is the intelligent and persistent application of knowledge, understanding, method, skill and insight that works over a period of time to reach a desired goal or aim. The reason why so many people fail in business and at networking is not because of a lack of information, training, will power, resources, intelligence or the system.

The number one reason why so many fail is this: They never examine the knowledge they carry around in their heads or how they got that knowledge. If you don't have the right mind-set, it is much more difficult for you to increase your income by any means.

Rather than getting the right mind-set that requires increasing knowledge, gaining understanding, organizing methods or systems, acquiring skills and gaining insight, they desire to get-rich-quick with little or no real effort.

The number two reason is: The overwhelming majority of all the people involved in home businesses fail because they spend most of their time, money and effort chasing the wrong people. The vast majority of income opportunities and business ventures of any kind are not designed for, nor intended for the timid, lazy, cowardly, faint hearted, egocentric, status conscious, self-conscious, undisciplined, those wanting great rewards for little or no effort, the fearful or anyone who is comfortable hiding out on the Internet.

These people are the wrong people for any income opportunity beyond a 9-5, get-rich-quick-scheme, overnight millions or Internet junk programs. These aren't bad people. In fact, the vast majority are decent, honest people. They are just the wrong people for any home business enterprise that requires discipline, self growth, self development, self management and courage.

This does not mean that one or two people can't succeed with some of this stuff circulating on the Net. The odds are stacked against the vast majority. That's why the failure rate is so high.
And...if anyone has any one of the above mentioned character traits, he/she won't earn any real money with any opportunity program, unless he/she is willing to grow and change. There is no such reality as something for nothing and no pies float in the sky.

In 6,000 years of recorded history no lazy, cowardly, fainted hearted, timid, or fearful person has ever amassed great wealth or ever had any great accomplishment. Online and off line "Self-proclaimed" Gurus rob the masses blind, by deceiving them, and perhaps you, that you can do little or nothing and amass great wealth. It is not going to least not with any frequency on planet earth. You are going to have to work, discipline yourself and find the courage from somewhere to succeed.

In our next post, we will discuss "Unsuitablity" - the number 3 reason why so many fail in home businesses.
