There is nothing quite so exciting and empowering as the ability to make money online. There really are a few real and very doable ways to make substantial money online.

The purpose of this article is not to list the various pathways; there are actually only a few proven ones, that can be taken to make money online.

The goal of this article is to identify something even more important and foundational to anyone who hopes to have any success. If you are already successful with an online business, you will discover that you succeeded precisely because you have used these 3 steps, whether consciously or not.

Don't be fooled by how simple and a bit obvious these steps may seem. They have been proven to be infallible to everyone who has used them. They work every time...if they are applied consistently.

Here are the 3 Vital Steps for Consistent Online Business Success:

1- FOCUS. Success is the fruit of focused attention in any endeavor. You must plant the right seed in the right soil, you must care for it consistently, and you must wait for the harvest (sorry, get-rich-quick won't get outrageous results in one week, although they can come in a fairly short of time). A focused, patient, positive mindset will make sure you will be there to see a bountiful harvest!

2- IMITATION. You don't have to, nor do you even want to; come up with a totally new way or system of making an online income. This is too risky and takes to much time and money. The very best, quickest, and most effective way is to copy something that is already successful. Granted, when you are more experienced, you may want to experiment and tweak things, but you don't need to "reinvent the wheel". Follow in the footsteps of the successful and you too will succeed.

3- MENTORING. It has been said that "it is better to learn from the mistakes of others than from your own". Beat the learning curve by finding someone to teach you proven ways to do it right. You don't have the time or resources to waste in re-learning what someone else already knows. Anyway, you can't get to where you want to be without someone else's help. This has always been true. The trick is to find someone who has the right experience and the know how to show the way to others in simple and clear steps.

BONUS STEP (the 'secret' to making it all work!): Take ACTION. Nothing will work for you if you don't take daily consistent action...massive action.

You can have a great plan, a great system, and even a great mentor, but if you don't take action, you will not achieve success. That is the naked truth. Those who take action get results. Those who don't, are just dreamers...that is all.

Having a dream, having a vision, having a goal is extremely important, but you must move the dream, the vision, the goal forward...action by action, step by step. Take an action, however small it seems, every single day. That is all you can do ...and that is all you need to do.

Take action (you know what the next little step is for you). Be consistent. Be persistent. Don't give up ...and you will soon find that you have arrived!

Take these 3 steps for online success to heart. Take ACTION. Apply them. FOCUS, IMITATE and get MENTORING... and you will find yourself well on the road to success.

-Be blessed.
