99% of people aren't willing to do hard work, and as a result, they do what's easy. This means that if you're looking for easy ways to make money, you have to compete with the rest of those 99% who are doing the same easy things you're doing. Meanwhile, the 1% who do the hard work have much less competitors and can cash in big. So instead of thinking "I HATE HARD WORK!", you should start thinking of hard work as an opportunity to make a ton of money. For example: A while back I spammed mocospace.com to death and was making handsome money. Then competitors came and mocospace was getting overwhelmed with spam. As a result of this, they put up several security measures. My profits plummeted over night and I got a bit saddened. But despite this, I kept working on my spambot to circumvent the security measures they had taken and I eventually started making more money on mocospace than I ever had before. Why so? Because I persisted. While all of my competitors folded to the security measures, I was willing to sit down, code, and try new things hour after hour, day after day, until something worked. What did I learn from this experience? To embrace hard work. Hard work made all of my competitors go away and I got paid handsomely as a result. Now I don't cry myself to sleep whenever a site I'm spamming puts up security, I celebrate.
