I was going to post this in response to coreygeer's thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/287163-had-real-life-realization-wake-up-call.html, but I think it applies to more people than just the OP of that thread. I don't claim to be some motivational guru and I don't claim to know everything, and I'm not doing this to seem like some kind of credible "wise" man. But I know what has worked for me. (My post starts with a reference to that original thread, talking about a video game.) I'd like to think that this isn't just another silly "All you have to do is take action!" post, and if you don't read the entire thing it may sound that way... and maybe it is... but this is my perspective and it has genuinely worked for me. I hope this silly rambling post helps someone out there.
