    Seriously, its starting to get on my last nerve. I will start a project, finish it with high hopes, then the hopes come crashing down, with nothing to show for it. Once this happens I find myself in a rut and dont even want to look at the damn computer. This has happened repeatedly and its almost like a person starts to get pissed off that all the studying and hard work aint paying off. I know what I gotta do and that is keep going but this is seriously starting to suck. What do you guys do to get back on track and re motiviated? The only thing I did well was get my offline business to #1 on the serps which saved my ass and my offline business is doing better than ever, but I want some IM $$$ damit! IM is the craziest emotional roller coaster I have ever been on. /end rant.

    Well, not much you can change other than just focusing on the future. Make that your motivation. A more luxurious future.

    Try to learn from your mistakes. Change how you approach obstacles. Everyone fails, you just have to get back up, change your strategy, then try again. :)

    That caption made me laugh, you can always try orange juice.... lol but in all seriousness, I believe you should go out even though you are working on IM, if you only work on IM than you brain will be fried, working smart>working hard 100% of the time. You motivation should also be intrinsic rather than extrinsic. And on more tip if I may, do not always looks at the results, IM is a process not a event. By learning more you will make more. I wish you the best of luck!

    That's what running a business is. Ups and downs. Don't feel so bad we all get it. I got Chuck Norris kicked in the chin 3 weeks back by Google (on one of my main money sites) and still haven't recovered.

    This won't be popular but find something NOT talked about here and try making money that way. Most methods here are for people in 3rd world countries where $5 a day is great. Sure all this seo stuff is great for long term but you'll starve to death waiting on it to start pulling in real money.
