All of these are fantastic ways to make money and there are countless more like it.
However, there is one problem with most of them: They will burn you out.
No matter who you are, if you do not love what you do you will come to hate it over time. As things get more difficult that you already don’t enjoy you start to dislike them more and more.
At first it is quite easy because it is new, you are excited, the progress is great and it all seems to be going quite smoothly. Every day there is a new achievement, you think of countless new ways to do it and everything excites you! Money is coming in and you are highly motivated to succeed even more!
It stays that way for the first couple of days, weeks or even months, but sooner or later it will catch up to you. The initial joy will disappear and you are left with a job like any other.
It’s the same thing that breaks couples apart and that makes people despise their jobs: They do not put in the time and energy to stay passionate about what they do.
And once that is lost you have to be incredibly disciplined to keep producing at higher and higher levels or you will hate it.
Things will get more difficult, you will find less joy in it and unless you can be disciplined enough to work on it, you will not succeed.
You see this all the time with YouTube channels that just disappear, Blogs that do not produce new content and people that attempt those challenges only to drop them again after a short while.
Most of the fast ways to make money are great to start but will burn you out sooner or later if you do not really love it. They make some money at the beginning, but as soon as you have to work hard to stay on a high level it becomes far more difficult if you do not love what you do.
That being said, these ideas are not bad by any means! You just have to be aware that it will be harder than it seems at first and that you will have to put in the time and energy to keep yourself motivated and passionate, just like in a relationship.
And there is another way to go about it.
Instead of starting out with something that makes good money right away that you do not love, start with something that you love and make money with that!
This is what people often attempt and talk about when they say “You have to find your passion”. And, the truth is that this is not easy either.
When you start out with what you already love, making your first money with it is tough. You do not know how to turn a profit from it, have no name or customers and it becomes a long, hard grind.
However, regardless of what you choose, when you start with what you enjoy it will be really easy to put a lot of time and energy into it! In fact, the longer you pursue what you are passionate about the more passion you will find for it and the more money you will make.
This strategy to making money is easy towards the end but difficult at first. While the first strategy is easy at first but difficult towards the end.
Which way is easier to make money with?
That depends on what you want to do with it. If you want to make small cash fast, pick the first one. But if you are looking for a long-term solution and have some time to spare, then choose the second option.
My advice, however, would be to start with both!
Pick one of the fast, easy ways to make money while following what you are passionate about already. Then, as the fast way becomes more difficult you will already have an alternative in play that you can work on more and more.
You will be able to switch from one way to the other, keeping your finances level, while doing something that is easy and something that is hard at the same time, but you will have money all around!
