It’s Too Hard! I Just Can’t Do That!

Written by liztomey

So today I’ve been doing some thinking about something that I often hear from people who want something that makes them either an income to replace their income at their current job OR those who want to make it big and make a lot of money.

All of these people have one thing in common…

They want to do this with an online business.

Yeah! That’s awesome, and if you pick the right online business and WORK at it that will happen for you.

However there’s a big percentage of these people who want to build an income with an online business and when they pick the right business they go…

OMG! This is too hard!

You know what?

You’re damn right it’s hard.

But is it too hard?

It’s only TOO hard if you don’t want it enough.


End of freakin’ story.

If you think this is too hard you…

1. Don’t have the help you need to do it. FIND THAT HELP!

2. Technology kicks you in the teeth. FIND SOMEONE TO HELP YOU WITH THAT!

3. You get too overwhelmed. STOP THAT! Take a deep breath, layout what you need to do, and pick one thing to do and accomplish it. Then come back to the next thing and accomplish it until you’ve done what you need to do!

NOTHING is too hard if you want it enough.

If you want an online business you’re going to stop

1. Jumping from thing to thing

2. Decide HOW you want to make money with an online business and JUST focus on that.

3. Refuse to surrender and do everything you can to find success. Find people who can help you!

I’ve been running my own online business since 2004. I was 25 years old when I started it. Before that I ran my own business in the direct mail industry. I was 19 when I started it.

NONE of it was EVER easy. EVER!

But I refused to quit!

I refused to let distractions keep me from success! (I became incredibly self disciplined.)

And for the last 10 years I’ve enjoyed an amazing lifestyle WHILE still working hard for it. Because NOTHING is too hard to keep me from a lifestyle I love. Building my online business and working hard in it is what got me here.

Do you want to be here?

Then quit saying it’s too hard.

It’s not…

And I’m living proof.

Are YOU ready to work hard for it?

If you can’t get out of the mindset that it’s too hard creating an online business is NOT for you and you need to do something else.

Is that an alternative for you?

Do you just want to give up and walk away?

I sure hope not because I’d love to see you have an amazing life you LOVE funded by an online business.

Stop saying it’s too hard!

Want it enough and you’ll get it…

I know this was a bit of a rant, but it’s something that needs to be said. I’m usually all unicorns and rainbows, but this stuff needed to be said.

Please know this all comes from my passion to help YOU succeed. I could easily just site back and let you destroy yourself and not have the stress of this stuff making me rant. *lol* But I’m passionate about my business and I’m passionate about YOU having a business that gives you the lifestyle of your dreams!

So to my people specifically…

    gives you dessert.

    Up to you.

    Just Do It.

    Better get if done while you can still afford a Liz Tomey gift.

  • Hey Liz, great post, your title is off I didn’t hate to hear it. I have been doing my best to keep going, but the day job has been eating up more time lately. Not more money from it, just more time on it. Anyway, normally I am off on Thursdays and the weekends, so I will email in and schedule a coaching call for next Thursday and will see you on the BWL webby tonight.

  • Thanks a lot Liz. This is something I’ve always had a problem with and still do but now I’m getting help from you others to stick to it, dig in, find a way to do the things that are too hard to do. I think that’s what you have just said and I appreciate hearing that. I’ve never heard it put that way, in that tone with a caring attitude. I’m very appreciative of this look into the rigors of creating an online business. I’ll try to dig in, persevere, and find ways to accomplish the things that are keeping me from creating my business or maybe businesses.

    Thank you a lot for your webinar and for being real and understanding when dealing with some hard issues and making them approachable and manageable.

    • You’re getting your mind right. Now just stay self disciplined! 🙂 Thank you for your kind comments. I try really hard for my peeps and I’m glad I’ve been of help to you. Keep showing up for the webinars!

  • It’s so true, Liz. Being an entrepreneur is not for sissies! (If that’s politically correct to say…)

    I’ve worked out of my house since 1992. The business has taken on various iterations, but the common denominator is hard work and always trying to find time to do what needs to be done.

  • This is a great post Liz. The truth of the matter is a couple of years back there were so-called gurus that were telling people they could make millions overnight with little or no work.

    Some people realized this was not true but many jumped on the bandwagon and gave up when the riches did not materialize.

    Some still think the internet is a gold-mine that requires no work. I think I have been working harder since I retired to build up a business than I ever did in my working life!

    • Yep, Derek! I agree… There are A LOT of “gurus” who are responsible for the “mindset” that many people have. It’s sad that …

      1. People are promised big money for no work.
      2. People are taught to do the wrong thing to be successful

      I have my work cut out for me because I spend my time trying to bring people the truth, un-program from what they’ve been taught that is all wrong, and then reprogram them so they know what’s right!

      That’s why it’s sooooo important to find a mentor that isn’t a conartist and one that will actually be there to help!
