Many people think that making money online isn’t possible, a simple pipedream, not possible for the majority of people. That’s true, but not for the reason that you’re thinking of. The reason why most people don’t find ways to make passive income is because the majority of people are lazy and want instant cash now. If you want to make money online, it takes lots of time and work in order to get there. If you can handle working for one year so that you can get paid for the next twenty years, then it can work for you. However, most people want instant gratification. Creating a passive income from the internet is a long term investment, as it is a business. If you cannot handle going without payment for very long, you will eventually fail. If you want instant money, go get a job. That’s the only way that you can do the work and immediately get paid for doing so.
Creating passive income may be hard at first and not getting paid certainly has a drawback but you need to think long term. You may not get paid this year but what about the upcoming years? After you stop working, it will keep paying off. Can you handle being able to not get paid for a little bit in order to get more later? You have two choices when working. You can choose to get a normal job, work more, earn more, get taxed more, or you can create passive income, which takes lots of work at first, but then pays off more later. For short term goals, passive income is a horrible idea. But you don’t plan on only living one year, do you? If you plan on existing for more then two years, creating passive income is very important to your financial future. Taking a more long term view is definitely more healthy for your finances.
It is possible to make money online but you have to be willing to put in the work. Is it worth it? I would say so. After all, you’re still young and able to work. If you can’t do it now, how will you be able to do it twenty years from now? Isn’t saving for your future worth it? If not, I hope you enjoy living in a cardboard box when you can’t afford to work anymore. But I know you can do it if you really want to. Go out there and make that money!
