    I think I could do with a motivation thread with some advice from people who made it through the struggle and now makes a happy living online..

    I am really just starting out, but I have been facing setbacks and lack of energy when it comes to generating content etc..And to make it a bit worse, I lost my part time job, that part time job let me get by and for me it justified spending all my free time online working towards a future goal, my gf just lost her job now also . so either way i am going to have to put IM aside for a bit til i can get another job..

    times are tough for a 19 year old Irishman living in portugal right now I have to say..I keep questioning my decision of trying to make it online and going through dark patches in my mind thinking I'm wasting my life staring at a screen and hoping it pays off..But at the end of the day, I usually love it, building a website, filling it with my own content and developing your own brand, adverising it and reaping the benifits later on,That is what I want! I just need a bit of motivation from BHW since I am the only one I know IRL who does this..

    So would you mind just telling me that you were in the same position as me a a few years, questioning your life decision, but you sticking through it was the best decision you ever made.. Something along those lines would be good :)Have a nice night BHW!

    Internet is the future, you should try it now and not in 10 years when you are 29.

    I can tell if you become a successful internet marketer you will make more money than in any job. Another good thing is that you will be able to travel the world and no one will tell you what to do. You are your own boss.

    Work hard and keep it up!

    I'm pretty much in your situation OP.

    I want to be successful, one day I will, right now I'm just fighting to make that happen. I'm not going to give up, ever.

    The thing to keep in mind is that most people in the IM world barely make any money for months or even years. The ones that keep with it and stick to a certain method are the ones that make the big bucks at the end of the day. It's all about persevering and becoming an expert in a field. Don't Quit!
