    I'm a student with a relaxed program, I live at home, I make some money online but not enough to live by myself. The problem is that I know what I have to do to make all those dreams real but I can't really seem to start working hard on it. I spend a lot of my free time in front of the PC, but when it comes to work I procrastinate a lot and get disappointed very fast, that get's me in a bad mood and when I'm in a bad mood I'm not very productive. I don't now where this "mind laziness" comes from but very often I find myself watching one of the at least 10 weekly tv serials instead of working. All this time wasting contributes to the anxiety therefore making me feel even more blue.
    I often get very excited about a project but distracted as fast. THERE'S TO MUCH INFORMATION and I lose my focus very fast.

    What I need is probably to go broke, experience working an underpaid, shity 9-5 job, and a serious ass whopping.

    I am the same way man.

    I work in a full-time shitty job as you say, and even though I do have free time to master IM, I just get lazy and end up just relaxing. I get tired from work so when I go home I don't want to be using my brain anymore so I just play games and watch shows/movies.

    While you are still young and in school, you should get off your ass NOW, and master IM, because trust me, working full time is no way to live man, and it is hard to escape once you're in it.

    I agree and I'm guilty of it too.. I work 40 hours a week and while that still leaves plenty of time for IM.. most of the days I just don't feel like busting my ass working some more... especially after seeing my gf / chilling with friends and coming home late...

    So some things gotta change... but hey it's a SMALL sacrifice for BIG returns! I'm almost finished with my first real money making site :D Got a solid monetizing strategy and guaranteed high conversion method of getting legit leads... $X,XXX/day here I come!

    I guess I'll chime in as well, as I am the same way. I am very apathetic when it comes to something like IM. I have no problem working hard in other things, but I think the difference is that I am not passionate about IM. I can play my guitar for hours and work out for hours, but it's because I enjoy doing them.

    I am a procrastinator by nature. I have always been. My homework was always done the morning of, bills are paid the day of, or late, Christmas presents are bought on the Eve of, etc.

    I have found that with anything you have to get out of your comfort zone. You just have to keep telling yourself to do it and do it now. Do this until you are comfortable enough to start taking on tasks that you didn't have to convince yourself to do. Then when you start seeing those clicks and converts.. it is all worth it and you are able to relax.

    One "easy" way to get around this is to break a project down into tasks. It is easier to stay on course when you know what you should be working on. When you look at an entire project as some big thing that will take a lot of time you can get distracted/lose motivation. But if you are working on something specific, it makes it easier to stay on track.

    i second that.break the strategy into simple tasks.Like say you want to create a niche blog and get it on top of the SERP,break the whole operation into 10 simple tasks.And do just one simple task each week or each day.You will have at least completed a niche blog at the end of 2 or three months and at least feel you have something done in your path to IM success.Do it slowly first and money comes in,you will get the inspiration automatically.
