Fear of missing out (FOMO) is the main reason aspiring online marketers buy 43 different online programs on how to start a business. They are continuously afraid they’re going to miss out on something great.
But because they have this fear, they are forever chasing the next, latest great thing.
To be successful in anything, you need focus more than anything else.
Do one or two things really, really well and you can make a fortune.
Do 100 things in a mediocre fashion and you’ll forever be broke.
So if you’ve started an online business, give it 100% and do everything you can to grow successful with it for at least 6 months. If after that period of time, you haven’t been able to succeed, honestly re-evaluate your situation and decide whether it was the business that failed, or your ability to do what was necessary to succeed.
In this case, by giving it your all and staying focused, you will at a minimum have gained many new skills and wisdom that you can apply to your next endeavor. Also, you will have identified true strengths and weaknesses in business models and yourself that you can apply to your next venture, if you need one at all.
There are many turn-key online businesses that are very reliable, and do work if you will maintain the focus and effort required to turn that business into a success for yourself. If you are driven by FOMO, you will be forever pulled into half-starts and unfulfilled dreams.
Keep this in mind, and do everything you can to succeed in the business that you are already in, before turning your attention toward anything else. Far too many would-be successful entrepreneurs quit and start something else, when if they just stuck with it, they would have been able to succeed in this business that they were already building.
