Hey guys, it is Dionne here with another income report! The reason I do these reports is to be fully transparent while inspiring others to make money online, and to help me keep track of the growth of this blog. I haven't done any income reports in a while because I haven't been making money from this blog, but I figured it would be a good idea to document my progress regardless if I make money or not.

Important Going-Ons
My YouTube account got terminated for no reason, so I started a new one. That is pretty much it. January was a pretty uneventful month. 

Content Creation in January
I published a total of 4 posts in January, which is terrible but I will definitely step up my posting frequency in the next couple of months.

Blogging isn't for the faint of Heart

Traffic Statistics
Pretty good month traffic wise considering the fact that I didn't do much promotion and didn't update my content as much as I should have. Saw a total of 156 unique visitors and 589 page views with the average visitor duration at 1:16.

Top Traffic Sources
Only thing I did was post in forums and comment on blogs to get traffic. So majority of my traffic will come from internet marketing forums. The traffic I got from the forums were not too good quality wise but the organic traffic I got was high quality.

Income Report
Nothing really to report here. Obviously I didn't have enough traffic to generate much revenue from this blog but I will hopefully generate some more revenue in the following months.

BlueHost: $0

Aweber: $0

CashCrate: $20.87

January Total: $20.87

That's all for now, hopefully February will bring in some more traffic and revenue.

 Everyone always feels like there is not enough time in the day, but I can tell you there is enough time in the day, you just aren't using that time wisely. 

In this post I will list 3 things anyone could do everyday to have more productive days.

Time to get stuff done!


1. Create a To-Do list.


Creating a list of the things you need to get done each day is the most important step to becoming more productive. Most of us aren't productive because we don't know what we have to do. When you don't write down the things you have to do, the tasks for that day seem like they are a lot bigger than they actually are, causing us to procrastinate.

2. Do things in short bursts.

We all get tired. Doing your tasks in short, hard burst keeps you from becoming exhausted and helps you really focus on the task at hand. Are brains can only focus for so long.

3. Remember your days are numbered.


Doing this humbles you and makes you want to use your time more wisely. It can act as motivation.

 I have yet to make any significant amount of money through blogging. 

Many would ask me, then why do you keep on blogging?

I keep on blogging because I know the potential is too big to let failure stop me from building a business that generates passive income through blogging. 

Blogging is probably the furthest thing from a get rich quick scheme. It is billions of light years from that. 

That is why so 99.9% of new bloggers quit. They don't see success right away and they think it is impossible to make money from blogging. 

I have been blogging for a year now and honestly when I first started out, I thought I would be here right now.

Picture
I can't give up because I have seen way too many people make money online from blogging to do so. So you guys can see my doing this thing for another 2 years at least.

Stop it with the crappy New Years Resolutions that last 2 weeks at most.

Stop saying that change will happen this year when you are not willing to change your habits.

Stop using motivation to fuel your efforts to acheive your goals. Your habits are what make you successful or unsuccessful, not motivation.

Picture
That picture perfectly describes how people act during the first month of a new year. Do me a favor guys, stop focusing on results and just focus on the process to get to where you need to go. I hope you guys have the best year of your life, but remember in order for things to change, YOU have to change!

Have a blessed 2014!

Focusing on results will speed you down the path on the way to becoming unsuccessful.

Instead of focusing on results, focus on the steps you need to do everydayto  become successful. Success isn't a result, it is a process!
When one focuses on results and the results are not where they want them to be, then they quit and give up. They give up after 2-3 years of failing in business, not knowing how close they are to reaching thier final outcome.

Look at the picture below to get an idea of what I'm talking about....

Picture
Do you see how  close the guy on the bottom is to success? Well he will never taste the success because he gave up too soon and focused on the results. You guys need to fall in love with the process of working towards your goals or dreams! This behind procrastination is the #1 reason people never reach success.


Listen guys, we live in a holographic universe where you create your own reality. We are creators. Now that you know that go out and change the universe! Make the universe your slave and get what you want out of it!

Like the Gold Rush?? How?

It really hasn't been fully established yet, in terms of people's share in the online market. Get your slice of the pie now and really start getting serious about making money online. Enough with that, time to get to the ways to make some dough!


1. Make money with YouTube.

You can make money with YouTube with the preroll ads that come on before the video starts like in the picture below.

You make between $1-$7 per 1000 monetized views. Monetized views are the views with pre-roll ads. You can also make money with the merchandise you promote through youtube such as T-shirts, iPhone cases, etc.

2. Blogging/Affiliate Marketing.

Use your blog to gather readers to buy your affiliate products or your own products that you create. Affiliate products are someone elses product that you promote to get a 50% revenue split. You can also put Google Adsense PPC ads on your website or blog. You get paid between 25 cents to $10 per click, it can be quite lucrative if you have a lot of traffic.


3. Sell your crap on eBay.

Easiest thing to do on this list. It is self explainatory, sell all the junk laying around your house. Anyone can make money on eBay!

It takes 10,000 hours to master a skill. With that said, if you want to make it to the NBA, you better start working! To put 10,000 hours in perspective, you would need to practice for 3 hours a day everyday for 10 years.

10 years??


Yes. 10 years, that is how much practice time needed to master a specific skill.  The 10,000 hour rule proves to us the power of the human mind and how we as humans are practically limitless! It only takes about 500-1000 hours to get good at something, so you could easily be a modern day renaissance man or end up being just as or greater than this guy.

Picture
That is Leonardo Da Vinci for those of you who do not know.

I am having a lot of fun realizing how many skills I can learn and get proficient at. I could be come a master painter,NBA Allstar, inventor, world renowned chef, and a successful entreprenuer! I see the universe as the matrix which can be altered by our thoughts and world which makes anything possible.

Now that you know about the 10,000 hour rule, will you master the skill you love?
