    Have you failed? I'm certain you are on the verge/contemplated giving up.
    I just heard a great talk by Tony Robbins:

    People tell me 'I've tried everything'
    Name the things you have tried.
    Well, I've tried a million things.
    Name them.
    Well, tens of thousand.
    Name them..
    I've tried thousands.
    Name them...
    Well, these three things that don't work I keep doing.

    BHW is full of people who aren't willing to try, or try again. Many people approach their goals with a 'one & done' mentality. If you failed on your journey, try something else.

    Stuck & having trouble reaching your goal? Change your approach.

    I'm going to refer back to this during the hard times. I hope you do too.

    I've tried many times at different things. Web hosting, running forums, blogging and selling on ebay. Complete and utter failure on every single try. Here recently I've started a blog that is roughly now 6 months old. I was soooo close to stopping because I wasn't making any money. I just cashed out on google for a 200 dollar payment. That 200 dollar payment was from 1 weeks worth of hits. I know to a lot of people that isn't great, but, for a blog that is 6 months old running on a domain name that is 2 months old (changed domain name 2 months ago). I believe that this time it is real. Failure only teaches you two things. How to quit, and how to get better by learning from your mistakes. I hope this is the one for me. Don't give up, just keep trying over and over again.

    Everything works to a degree. Some dude even made $100 out of Tsu. You could sell matches in hell
    if you package it right, have enough money to launch it, and stick it through.

    There are tons of reasons why people don't make it. One of those is chasing methods instead of building
    a business model that functions and can be scaled.

    That made my day. I'm using that one from now on!

    percocet, you're not alone. I know I have failed a couple times, and have had some small wins too. A wins a win in my book.

    I agree with you. I think most people, especially the newbs don't invest the time to be successful with what they're doing. They think they could just make $10,000 a month doing something if they follow a step by step guide..

    This isnt advice to those that failed, as the whole forum has at least once.

    This is for those who failed and aint stood back up
