This is pretty easy:
1. Create something... sell it.
2. Find something someone else has created.... sell it... (ideally it should be something you are really into or you will never stick with it through the rough times.)
3. Do something for someone, that they need done.... charge them for it.
These are the only ways available. There are no others. Choose that which is best for you, or which you are most capable of doing, and begin. All can be done online from a website or using social media. There is, however, no escaping the need for the ability to sell.
Of course, the absolute best way to create your own income is to take gobs of money and invest in things which pay dividends or rental fees, which count as income. But if you already had that, you wouldn't be asking the question.

What would you like to do instead?
Location Independent Expat Relocate
If you want to move abroad, but you can't decide where, I can help you.
I still think it's worth getting a career, then you can stockpile cash and there's also the chance of working overseas. I'm trying to get relocated in my current job.
Getting a degree and a career is usually worthwhile, although this guy has a whole load of ideas for high paying careers without a degree:
Mr Money Mustache
And just for the record I've spent 20 years working in a field completely unrelated to my degrees.
This is my strategy. I work a minimum of 50hrs/week in a pretty high-stress position, and although I make good money, I don't want to continue like this until my mid-60s. I spend very little, invest a lot, and plan to work until my early-mid 40s and then "retire" abroad. By "retire" I mean do something less-stressful for 10-20 hours a week like teach English. Living on 20-25k/yr in SE Asia, South America, or Eastern Europe can make for a very comfortable life.
