Is Passive Income your Goal for pursuing Money Making Opportunities Online?

When you are pursuing for money making opportunities online, is passive income your main goal? Are you hoping to create a system, a product or a blog successfully which able to bring in lots of revenue? And once you’ve created this passive income, are you thinking that maybe this passive income can continue to last forever?

First of all, nothing is forever. Second, passive income does not mean once you have successfully built it, money will continue to come in forever without having to do anything. There are lots of products or eBooks available online selling automatic system that enables users to make a lot of money in a few months without doing much work. If you are thinking about applying the automatic system and relax for the rest of your life, it’s not going to work out. At the end of the day you will be saying “This is not what I’m expecting and not what I have in mind.” The reason is simple. If you can purchase the system and apply it easily, that means anybody around the word can do it too. Imagine the amount of competition that you’ll get and the same system applies everywhere around the world. Even if the system really works but given the rapid increase number of users around the world, the cheese cake is just not enough to share with the world. In other words, this passive income might just last for few months only.

According to the definition of passive income from Wikipedia,

Passive income is an income received on a regular basis, with little effort required to maintain it.

The misconception which most people have is the little effort required to maintain it. Please remind that little effort is not equal to zero or no effort at all. Actually the little effort only applies after investing lots of effort many years. A good analogy to explain this is you have to climb up the top of the mountain in order to enjoy the easy walking trip going downhill.  The higher mountain you climb, the longer downhill waking distance you’ll get to enjoy. This also explains that every passive income has a certain lifespan. Under these circumstances, you need to create more than one passive income and allocate time and effort for each of them in order to maintain it.

As a result, pursuing for money making opportunities online and creating passive income must continue on in order to maintain a stable income. Thus this is not a short term process but a long term working life style. If you are not able to enjoy and adapt your life style to pursuit for money making opportunities online and constantly creating new passive income, you are going to have a hard time and won’t be happy about it. Perhaps it is better to just have a job and live a simple life. This is one of the reason why I always advice not to quit your full time job while pursuing for money making opportunities online.
