    Awesome points mentioned here, the biggest reason I found in my blogging journey is that We are not in a track for a long, every time we change our money making plan as we read another money making tips. For now started my own service and yes I am making good bucks from it, because I love what I do and don’t bothered to be millionire at overnight. Great post must read for many bloggers.

    The only reason i never refer myself as a pro-blogger is that my only blog is only 6 months old. And that’s not a good criteria to be called a pro-blogger. But i will be, may be in a year.

    And when read the first two paragraphs of this post i was like, How dare you say that i can’t be a pro-blogger? But then i read it down and now i know why most fails to be a pro.

    Thanks for your post Tony.

    I recalled John Chow mentioned in one of his post that he made money not directly through his blog but rather through back end products which he offered to his subscribers. He also emphasized the importance of building a list through a blog.
    So I guess it is not realistic to expect to make five or six figure income just with one weblog. Rather the whole objective of posting good contents is to establish credibility and authority of chose niche and then get people to subscribed or opt-in to follow up newsletters or email marketing campaigns.

    Things like lack of dedication, laziness and thoughts of becoming rich over night kills the passion of the person and it strictly adheres to the depreciation of the person..

    Excellent points every one, although I am particularly fond of point #5: “[Investing money in the wrong things]”

    The majority of online business owners, bloggers, fall prey to the notion that “If I just invest in the right widget, gadget, plugin, WSO, ad nauseum that this will somehow solve their money-making problems.

    This thinking is flawed to say the least…

    “Widgets and gadgets” don’t solve your problems, only correct thinking and a plan of action do. And if your thinking is wrong, then no amount of action or investment can compensate for this.

    The best investment you can make in your business is to make an investment in yourself, first. Instead of wasting money on the “latest & greatest” – make an investment in a mentor who is doing what you want to do, successfully. Then listen to every thing they tell you to do, then do it.

    And as you so aptly pointed out in point #6…

    “As a man or woman thinks in their heart so are they.”

    Invest in your thinking and many of the other issues will follow suit.

    Again, great post.

    Be good to yourself,

    Thanks again Harsh, this gave me something to think about. Particularly, the point of how I use my time hit me hard. Am I really as busy as I think I am or am I wasting my time
    ‘being busy’ instead of getting work done? This question is an important one. I will think about it and make adjustments if warranted.

    Discipline is required if you want to be successful in any field. People come to blogging to earn money overnight. They think this is the easiest method to earn passive income. They do realize very late that this is now the most competitive market in the world. If you want to earn something , then you have to show your guts.

    Nice points Ajaero a person really need patience to make money online as we do not make money online…we have to earn it….. :) and its a must read for the newbie bloggers as they leave blogging in the middle of their journey because of small failures and because they wanted to earn in a day.

    Really Great points Ajaero , a blog is like a baby you first have to nurture it , feed it with good articles , build good backlinks ( frnds) and then when it will become big then only u can expect money from it…..really….this post is a must read for all the bloggers who just blog for money.

    When I first started making money online I was one of those people that wanted to make money immediately. Sometimes we set the bar too high for ourselves. But over time I realized that success takes time and I won’t get to where I want overnight. I learned to set more realistic goals for myself and it encouraged me to work harder to meet those goals.

    Hello Ajaero Tony,
    The points like ‘Too focused’ and ‘Not disciplined’ are a the core of the problem. Its true that it is not easy to reach that level of problogger without keeping in mind the above mentioned things. Thanks for the informative post.
