    I know that we all have or at least have had many days when you felt like "shit is this ever going to work for me.
    Days when you just feel like throwing in the towel and call it quit.

    For me if or whenever i have those days, to beat that or at least fight that bad depressing feeling...
    -I like to head over to good ole Youtube and search for all the motivational videos i can find on success, wisdom, determination and all those type of videos.
    I look for the must fluffy ones:eek:... the one's like mantage. good music mixed with motivated words always seems to do the trick... At least it gets you out of that shitty state of mind and gets you feeling like you can at least keep on trying that you just might be able to do it at, least some day.

    -Even taking a good walk about 1/2hr to 1hr, the fresh air always seems to help the mind.

    Yeah... there you have it
    Two of my favourite mood changing techniques that works for me

    Please share what you do too stay up and keep going... music-women-men-thought of success-your kids-family-that Ferrari you have saved as your desk top wallpaer-fapping-strong drinks
    do share

    That may be weird for you but allways when i felt dismotivated or sad i smoked weed - that was helping me a lot.
    BUT i got addicted and had to throw it away - anyway it was nice time.

    mumfry, I'm big into self-development and I'm kind of looking to tutor someone if you are interested. Send me a PM if you are.

    To answer the question: I stay motivated in life and IM by maintaining a solid foundation in the rest of my life. Everything is intertwined and excellence is always a constant struggle (this means eating right, exercising, meditation etc)

    I tend to take breaks when something dosent work, then i get back to it and se if i can understand it and / or get it to work.

    Otherwise its a good thing if you dont give up so easy and really want to learn

    Having to go to work and not tell my bosses to fuck off gives me all the motivation I'll ever need.

    I find its important to have a good social life and not just sit in front of your PC 24/7, having a social life is just as important as your business because you will soon fry and crack if you dont have some down time.

    I also find it good that when i enter a shop and see someone doing some really boring job like working behind a till i always think "Im so lucky to do what i do". Because at the end of the day i can work whenever i want and do whatever i want, and dont have anyone having ago at me or telling me what to do.
