How do you avoid sitting back and counting your passive income money?

    I by no means am wildly successful, but I have anywhere from $20-$100 come in for passive income every day.
    I find myself checking stats all the time for motivation and fun and often sit back and watch the already successful passive income streams do their work instead of building more.

    What do you do to snap out of this and grow them instead of watch them work?

    Never you mind.
    I agree with the above poster. Let that be motivation to some more of what makes that money!!

    Whenever I see it getting higher I tend to forget all the work I put in to get there so I let it slip for a few days. But then I'll wake up one morning and get right back into making music and will produce several beats in a day.

    Don't take it for granted. You worked hard on getting that much so far. To get twice that much, start putting in twice the effort you did at first and you'll be there in no time. Now you know what your doing, knowledge is the key!

    Is this the part where we ask you to spoon-feed us these auto-pilot methods? :wink1:

    On a more serious note, I would suggest that you organise yourself to work at your most productive times of the day/week and try to diversify your income streams. If you become too complacent you might just end up with financial commitments that you are unable to fulfill, due to being banned/saturating your market etc.

    Ps: I realise this post isn't very inspirational, but being realistic will make your dreams even more accessible.

    Make yourself busy enough to forget about it. I check my passive income about once a week, when the cheque comes in the mail.

    The best motivation is seeing it dwindle down. Or maybe seeing your site lose to some bullshit emd. All that income that you once had someone else takes. That's motivation.

    The best motivation is fear of what might happen if you lost all that passive income to some algo update or social media security / useability update. So start planning ahead and moving forward with new methods and ideally your own product/brand long term.

    If its passive, think "why the fuck is this $100/day and not $1000/day?"

    thatll get you working and not checking.
