When it comes to online business owners, there are two types:
1) the ones that make it happen
2) the ones that let it happen.
You know which one you are.
But if you're not satisfied with your status, you can change it. The difference between the two is that one group actively plans and takes steps to create the future. The other group simply reacts and tries to do the best with whatever happens. It's not a position of strength.
The next time you start a project, decide to make it happen and see if you get different results. Be willing to risk failure. If you don't completely succeed, at least you'll learn what to do next time.
