Tired of the False Claims!

Reading Time: 6 minutes

In this post, we are going to look at the issues faced when people are looking for the right opportunity to get involved with online to make money and build a business that delivers what it says it will.

All too often, we hear these types of claims that seem too good to be accurate, and people must remain alert to these types of applications. We all know that it takes more than a magic wand to become successful online or anywhere else in the business world.

If it were easy, then everyone would be rich beyond their wildest dreams. Which, when you think about it; we would not have any outrageous goals if everything were easy to achieve.

The fact that there are so many so-called guru’s teaching everyone that you must chant the right mantra and do not let negative thoughts crowd your mind, they say that is the key to success.

The only problem is when you believe that, is sets the most exceptional guilt trip on the person who wholeheartedly believes this philosophy. It they are not successful then it must be their fault, right? How else are they expected to feel?

Selling the Dream

Gurus are selling the dream; they say things like, you must know your “WHY” that is what will drive you to the victory. Your “WHY” will allow you to overcome every obstacle along the way.

I do believe that there is some truth to that, but throughout my life, a sheer determination is not going to get it done by itself! You are going to need more, the knowledge of the products, the connections to the right customers, and the ability to manage the business correctly.

That is just for starters, none of the significant companies survive if they cannot do these simple tasks. They will need much more than that, but I think you get my point here.

For a regular business, it does not need all the employees to believe in the vision of the leadership to do the things necessary to achieve the goals.

There is a need to have critical people in strategic positions to ensure there is consistency across the board. But in a home-based business, the owner must have a good vision.

That vision will keep them going but will not pay the bills! For that, they need to have revenue coming in; otherwise, the rest of the plan is useless.

Dreamers sometimes forget this essential step; you must make money to pay the bills and to have resources to grow the business. I have found myself in this predicament on the home-based business.

People who have success in the corporate world can find it challenging to switch to the home-based business model and know how to prioritize their agendas.  

Coming up Short & Feeling Empty

I have come up short in my home-based business. The reasons vary; but, one common challenge is the conflict between my day job and the demands of building a side business.

When your primary income is from your day job then priorities must remain set on the day job-winning out over the side business. I have never stopped efforts to build my own business only stopped the things that did not work!

That is how I deal with the ups & downs in working so hard without seeing the desired results. Eventually, the work is going to pay off hugely.

Over the years, both in my career and in my endeavors to build home-based businesses, the number one philosophy and belief to go by is the golden rule in life.

That is to treat others the way you want them to treat you! It is so simple yet very seldom followed. That is one of the ways that lead to others feeling empty and unfulfilled after business ventures dye.   

Dealing With IT

Better to be like the old Timex commercials used to say, “Take a licking and keep on ticking.” If we develop a winning attitude and do not allow what others to do affect us negatively or go down the path to vengeance.

Strive to treat others right and take the high moral ground will ultimately lead to the place you want to be. Real success is when you achieve your goals by helping others achieve their goals.

Business models built from the competition viewpoint will not be satisfactory to people who care for others. People who care for others will not have the cut-throat mentality sought for in the competition model.

For those who find themselves in the caring group; we have good news you can succeed in business by teaming up like-minded people and work together.

It is much more fun to work as a team rather than an individual. Think about it if you win the world by yourself who are you going to celebrate your victories within the end?

Perseverance & Will-Power Prevail

Continually hearing about people who never quit has always inspired me to pursue my dreams even more intensely. The philosophy of hard work has been part of my make-up since early childhood.

For as long as I can remember, it was more interesting to see people working together on some project. There would be a sense of satisfaction when the plan worked as designed.

I am now thinking about how to build teams of people who are like-minded in their beliefs about helping others succeed in business. This idea intrigues me because of the magnitude of what can happen in the world.

Once a team of people get their hands on something that works and will put money into every participant’s wallet; how do you think that will impact the world?

It is going to be very disruptive; but, in the right way!

Look For a Better Way

In the last year, I have been looking and thinking about how to come up with such a company or even to get the idea complete enough to work with the existing companies out there, to achieve this kind of success in life.

There is a word taught in the curriculum at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition which is “synchronicity,” which means that things in life will come together based on their mutual interest.

It fits perfectly in my story as it unfolded this year; after starting my blog and focusing on health-related topics, I needed to find traffic. I intended to find like-minded people and work towards building teams for different missions.

To my surprise, it led me to I.I.N., and I enrolled in the course to better educate myself on holistic health practices. In the meantime, I was also pursuing ways to increase traffic which lead me to ONPASSIVE.

Even though ONPASSIVE is in pre-launch, there was something about it that drew my attention.

The program; based on everyone winning and not on the competitive model; instead, every participant will be successful.

  1. Exactly, I’m tired of the false claims. Too many websites do not deliver on their promise. I also agree that determination alone cannot yield success; but, confidence, it can motivate and drive you towards other necessary things to have for success. This article is very educative. Thanks for sharing your wisdom.

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, and highlighting the connection between determination and confidence. People need to be confident that the actions they are taking are the correct actions.

  2. I agree with this approach to finding success. The mindset of any entrepreneur, whether it be starting an offline or online business has to be a “whatever it takes” attitude. There has never been a successful business opportunity that did not experience many setbacks along the way to making a profit.

    However, there are those online gurus; either telling you that it is easy or they tell you it will require you to work hard, but, we can help by offering a done-for-you tool.It’s been my experience to avoid both of these routes when choosing a way to be a success in your own business. 

    What you have said about helping people, by making your product or drive to do this, is a correct way to see success. Besides, one needs to also draw help from others who have an established track record of succeeding without scamming others. In regards to the latter, this can be hard to find because you need to know who/what is a scam or not.

    1. Thanks for sharing your ideas on this topic, we often find ourselves in this situation and need to address the issue right then and there. It is better to keep our minds clear when starting a new venture.

      I think the key to finding a peaceful balance between work and home life is to follow your heart and align yourself with the good things that come from wanting to help others succeed both in life and in business! 

  3. Hello there, thanks for sharing this fantastic post. So many times, when people were intending to start an online business but did not start-up with a legit company; rather, they fall into the hands of scam sites. From my experience with these people, one can only avoid them by making proper research on these scam sites before going into any form of business online.

    Best regards.

    1. Thanks for your comment, and sharing your thoughts on the subject, I agree that people need to research the company’s they get involved with and proceed with caution, there are too many bad ones out there that will end up taking your money without delivering the goods. 

  4. This article is an excellent post you have put together here. It is very accurate that many times, we see people who come up with the idea of mantras. Even though this might work, it is not as effective as taking actual action.

    Your sense of getting like-minded people is really good, and I’m glad we have met at this moment. ONPASSIVE is a way forward, and we are all waiting on it.

    1. Thank you for your comment, and sharing your thoughts on the topic, I am looking forward to the roll-out of ONPASSIVE and to get a look at the platform and test drive the new products as well.

  5. Yes definitely, I am tired of false claims and it is sickening to keep seeing various so-called gurus lying all about without any proof of legitimacy in the things they talk about or supposedly supply.

    I’m tired of being sold out to, and I’m delighted you suggested on passive. Though I have heard quite a few things about ONPASSIVE nothing concrete yet. Thank you, and I’d give it a try now. Thumbs up

    1. Thank you for your comment, and you are right, there is nothing concrete about ONPASSSIVE at the moment, which is somewhat ironic when you think about this post. But, I think it is going to be massive! And will pay off nicely for everyone.

  6. Thank you for this in-depth piece of eye-opening article, I think people should always do a thorough check of any platform before they joined, many system and products online are designed to deprive people of their time and hard-earned money. 

    Thanks for the free E-book, I will check it out and share my thought about it here after that. 

  7. If there is one thing that bothers me, about a lot of these scams is that they promise so much, but deliver so little. It’s an easy way for them to bait you in and take your money with very little to no reward for you.

    While you are starting a business, whether brick and mortar or online take time, vision, and effort as you stated in the post. 

    The challenge of balancing the day job with your side business is one that resonates with me because I have struggled with that a lot. I understand people want to do what they are passionate about, but they also need to pay the bills while that passion business gets up and running. 

    Thanks for this post, as it was encouraging and motivating to me!

    1. Thanks, Steve, for sharing your thoughts on the subject and I feel the same way about the struggle between working to pay the bills and working to pursue a life with a business that is much more in line with my core beliefs.
