    Man! I'm working day and night and can't seem to crack the code. Before you saw any success did you wanna quit, and then one day it just clicked?

    What did you do different that you weren't doing before?

    it's taken a year to get where i use to be financially, working for someone else. I try and run as 'white hat' as possible. it takes time, patience and constant attention. In time, it'll come.

    I actually have quit several endeavors before... and I realized that there is no way I could ever become successful if I quit. Success is about enjoying the process and growing as a person.

    I have not worked a job in 5 months and my residual income is growing consistently. In the 2 years with my network marketing company, I have had many challenges & am glad I have faced and overcome each of them!

    I started IM in the middle of December 08 and have never really considered quitting to find a normal job. I made decent money in the begging thanks to someone from this forum who was coaching me so I saw the potential. After that I was making 0 until a few weeks ago when I started making decent money again, now I am making more than before and working on new projects. If you are persistent and don't mind working long hours you will make $. Hope that inspires you :)

    one of the hardest things is when you are earning 0 and investing all your time and your friends/family think your wasting your time or even worse they think you are dicking around for fun on the net.. if you can get through that shit you will be fine

    When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. "anonymous"

    i first went into business in 1991 and i changed paths whenever i saw they weren't leading me to where i wanted to go. but if i had given up i would be nothing right now. i didn't achieve true success until i hooked up with a total stranger.

    i called him to let him know that his web site was defective and we got to talking about business. he was looking for someone to process some business leads and i took the 'job'. that lead me to starting my first successful business online, and the rest is history.

    if you want to be a success you *must* network with like-minded people. but if you run with the partyers, the slackers, and the 'go nowhere crowd' you'll remain one of them. you won't see the rich and the powerful hanging with the minimum wagers and you won't see hollywood celebs dating cashiers, secretaries, mechanics, or truck drivers.

    dan kennedy said that if you want to be a success you should be prepared to change who you hang out with, the types of books and mags you read, and even which tv shows you watch regularly. sitcoms and sports entertain, but they won't help you to succeed.

    pay attention to your conversations, what are they about? idle chit-chat? stories about how many girls someone slept with? how many guys someone beat up? how much booze someone drank in one evening? the latest schlock film that someone saw? someone's video game score? comic books?

    or do you discuss market trends? sales strategies? ways to monetize the current recession? how to grow your business? advertising methods? ways to increase web traffic?

    how you spend your free time will greatly affect how successful you are in business.

    'tell me who your friends are,
    and i'll tell you who *you* are!'

    Yeah, I wanted to give up.. when the girl I liked (one of the very few friends I had) simply abandoned me for no reason and I got kicked out of my home and made homeless for a while because I fucked up.

    I first started out on the Rich Jerk forum.. BIG BIG BIG mistake.. I'll admit though.. RJs sales letter is a complete killer.. a damn good sales pitch. No one ever actually gave me good advice.. the most advice I had ever gotten before coming here was "write articles" or "get a job". Yeah.. I wanted to give up.. yeah, it sucked.

    Be persistent and take action. Spend less time reading and more time doing.

    95% quit that's why (WE) 5% makes cash!

    Doesn't matters what you read here or not. If you have the 'quit' word somewhere in your mind, it means that you have already 'Quit' .

    Whenever I get discouraged, I think of where I have been. And I realize where I am at now is a whole hell of alot better.

    don't quit..... That's it.

    winston churchill had a good quote, here it is

    'Never never never give up'

    Someone bought me a mug with quotes on it and that one stuck

    You NEED to ignore other peoples opinions and do your own thing.

    Don't live by their limitations.

    Remember this stuff is not easy and everyone who,s 'made it' have all been there and got thru it

    Your prob a lot closer than you think

    Os...

    Hmm been slacking few months as things are going pretty well at the moment, but waking up again to take action to move into less riskfull business stuff :).

    Hmm i kinda agree about friend stuff. My friends are pretty much slackers who visit their friends and drink booze , lol . I can see this in myself :p there no one for competition about something. Ie. Id like to do fitness stuff little bit more , go jogging and shit and maybe gym, but i dont see why should i :p no one there to be beaten lol.

    As bottom line . Everyting has its price and you will win if you can endure :) winston churchill lost most of the battles but he endured and won the war.

    Just before I got the small amount of success now, I took a break and asked myself if I really want this. That's probably how I got it :)

    everyone feels like quitting at times. But it's not the IM stuff that is hard to quit in my mind - it is the safe secure (and damn well paid) 9-5 day job that is hard to let go of.
