    You are saying that you feel your method will dry up? Yes, it will in some way, but the good news for every IMer is that new methods branch off, and you can use the same skills in other methods. I've had several methods dry up, but in the end I find a way to use my skills to apply them to a different method. Save your money. Good methods require investment. :)

    Could be worse, you could be earning nothing and feeling hollow. It is quite easy to cope with, do not have all your eggs in one basket. Personally I only promote anything which is rev share, and having had quite a few of my sites wiped out a year or so ago, due to it being rev share I could easily go on month after month until I had sorted new sites to replace ones I had lost.

    Better do investments instead spending all income.

    Start by giving. Find others who are down on there luck. Train them to do a few tasks. Pay them and hopefully profit at the same time. Scale up. Hire more, pay better

    Either that or drown your sorrow and beat some hookers ;P j/k

    Don't let Google scare you. If you keep thinking about Google taking you down, it most likely will happen. Even if they do take you down, you already know how to make $70 a day and I am very sure you can easily do it again.

    Don't let fear cripple you.

    Be smart and invest your money into assets instead of buying cars and bitches. (Built income streams that don't depend on google)

    As you are still studying do not spend all your money, and try to save 50% at a bank which will give you regular returns on your investment, and based on your current earning, by the end of 1st year, you should be getting close INR 8K (8-9% average interest rate of banks). as a student, that is very reasonable revenue. Save when you can earn, just don't throw away on parties and friends, etc.,

    I feel almost the same way. That is why I work hard to find new methods, new ways, new niches.

    Exchange your method woith other succesfull IMer & get other methods to earn money . So you will have mutiple ways to earn , which will be more robust than single way

    There's a reason billionairs don't put their money in Indian banks :) (also, Paypal doesn't like Indian banks either)

    Its not at all a wise idea to put all the eggs in one basket. Diversifying links will give our sites a good SERPS movement, you need to do the same, in your methods too.
    Good Luck :)

    Lol I think everyone is missing the real point of this post which is OP's depression.

    Yea success changes nothing for the state of mind. It doesnt matter how well you do, you will feel the same, and the feeling that you must climb higher than you currently are, doesnt change.

    No matter how well or poorly business goes, you'll have that hollow feeling within you because it is innate in you. The problem lies deeper than worldly things can touch.

    Try meditating with affirmations, it really helps me achieve a state of well being.

    If that doesnt work, ask your doctor for a drug called wellbutrin

    When you think your method is going to die, then choose another method before it dies
