    I've moved this thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/288588-genuinely-poor-truly-wealthy-overnight-heres-how-its-done.html. :)

    Edit:Here's the original for your convenience:

    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.

    Good tip, I've been waiting for a lightning strike too. I've had a couple but they only last for a while which makes sense because it brings you up to ANOTHER playing field, with new goals higher than before.

    Definitely can understand and relate to what you posted.

    I'm glad you can relate. :)

    I've had plenty of high-emotion moments in my life, as I'm sure most people have, but in my humble opinion those are a little different than the "life altering revelation" kind of feeling that most people want to achieve.

    It's as if people tend to get stuck in this closed loop where they constantly think "just over this next hill... if I just do this stuff I hate for a little while longer, the next hill will yield my results" or some such thing, and then they never make the changes necessary to actually achieve results. I know I used to be like that... always looking forward to happiness but never actually striving toward it that particular day, moment, second, etc. Thinking that if "I just get through today, tomorrow everything will finally click into place". That never worked.

    Edit: Also relevant to this thread, some of my friends whom I consider "rich" have mentioned that if you have a mindset which places "the next achievement" on a pedestal, you're never satisfied, because most things have a very low-level pleasure-response in people. Whenever they buy the next awesome sports car, or the next new TV, or the next sound system, it's fun for a few weeks but then the feeling fades and they're no better off than they were before.

    From what I gather, the basic idea is that if you think some obscure thing will just magically change your life (remember: lightning strike), when it doesn't you're let down and you've wasted your energy hoping for happiness/reward when you should have spent that time enjoying life regardless--not waiting for what could be.

    I remember watching a video related to this idea by Alan Watts some time ago... I think it was posted here. I'll post it here if I can find it.

    Edit: Here's the video:

    Like my very rich father used to say and I quote:

    " WORK WORK WORK!!! "

    OR Like My Super Rich Mentor Used To Say And I Quote:

    " FAILIURE IS NOT AN OPTION!!! "

    Thats all you need to know!
    PS. My prayers goes to both of them, there isn't a single day that goes by without me thinking of them.

    Indeed--it seems like most people who claim to be trying to break into the IM industry believe that it won't take any hard work... or that they'll eventually be able to just stop working altogether after a short period of time. :rolleyes:

    You can't build an empire on hope!

    I am just now understanding the importance of scaling and tweaking my income systems, it takes determination and plenty of keyboards to become successful in this industry.

    It also helps to be addicted to a constant flow of cash without no backbreaking manual labor to get it. :D

    This is described in another favorite quote of mine:
    "Climb a mountain, tell no one."


    Man thanks for the share , I have come back from a very bad physical condition ,4 years ago my nervous system collapsed and i couldnt even get up from the bed let alone walk , had to even be lifted on to a wheel chair. Was in this condition for nearly 6 months when i was first able to get up on my using some ones support. Had a very long painfull rehabilitation relearning to walk again.Anyways dont want to bore ppl with my story
    All I want to say is that i know what it takes to come back from the worst of situations and conditions but 1 thing i always sub conciously looked to gain was peoples respect for my achievements as u put it and that Quote of yours is going to be my motto from now on ."Climb a mountain, tell no one." Thanks again OP :)

    Darn it!! I clicked the thread title hoping this would be the "lightening-strike" revelation.

    :p

    I'm glad to hear that you're working through it regardless. A nervous system condition must be tough.

    I love this thread! I like CharlesManson also was diagnosed with a condition (although not as serious) this last summer, I have really bad heart palpitations which gave me pretty bad anxiety, so for about 3 months I wouldn't do anything, I quit smoking, drinking, and pretty much everything else in life, I didn't even go outside for like 5 weeks straight! thinking id have a heart attack somewhere and die, but I am now realizing that you cant just sit around and HOPE you get better, in my case anyways I have to just live with it and move on, somehow all this put me into a weird depressed state where I thought I would someday just get better, and everything was owed to me and I be struck by the lightening bolt and be better =)

    But I realized that day will never come and I now need to live with what I have and make the best of each and everyday! I am now working on multiple projects and loving every minute of everyday, Before all this happened I viewed life like alan watts said I thought of life as an analogy with a journey which had a serious purpose at the end, but I seemed to have missed everything inbetween! Im glad I'm still young and learned this rather fast!

    One of my new favorite quotes
    "never take life to seriously, no one gets out alive anyways!"
