    Guys, I was just getting my daily BWH dose and thinking...
    How dumb is for myself to read this forum for 4 months and still not being taking any action whatsoever and being unable to make a single dime in this??
    I mean seriously.. how dumb I must be?

    I doubt that its because you're dumb, otherwise you wouldn't stick around here for 4 months XD. You probably just need to get yourself motivated, sit down, and really try a method out.

    I wouldn't say dumb, you're just a procrastinating expert lol. But as STiPEN said, this will change after you make your first dollar.

    You probably just haven't found a niche you're passionate about yet.

    You are afraid of change. Deep down you are afraid of change. Right now, you are probably comfortable in the spot you are in in your life. And you fear progress because progress equals change. A new life is in your grasps, but you refuse to take your shot because you fear what's up next, you fear the unknown. You fear that, when things do progress and change for you, that something bad or unexpected may happen.

    But something bad can happen every day. No one can truly predict anything, and that's what makes life special. Everything ahead of all us in the next day or this upcoming weekend, is completely unknown. And for some people, that is awesome. Some people do not think twice about tomorrow, they never learned this behavior and instead they thrive with new and exciting days.

    But for some people, this upcoming weekend scares them. The unknown scares them, and you make excuses by procrastinating. Because you know if you procrastinate, you will have more of this unchanged, comfortable, and predictable lifestyle.

    However, you have all the chances to make things better. Deep down you want to change, or else you wouldn't be here in the first place.

    The world can be a scary and daunting place, much like the animal kingdom our human kingdom isn't too different. Except we operate with consciousness. We subconsciously act the same way these alpha and beta animals do in the wild.

    Every day is a new opportunity. Good or bad, or amazing or terrible. But that's why it is exciting to live, to be human is to learn from your mistakes and embrace challenge. Without challenge, life would become played out and boring very fast.

    Good luck, as I am facing your same problem.

    I wish I had your writing skills, I would be writing kindle books like [email protected]#$$%cker... and product reviews and writing gigs. I also appreciate a lot you putting down your view on this matter :)

    I would say try with small things first.. if you are financially stable and have regular income then plan to use some portion of it every month.

    For SEO in the beginning try to build backlinks yourself, if it is working try to scale up things gradually by buying some tools.

    Don't jump into things at the very beginning and spend all your savings in one go just because you want to start earning.. try and begin with small things and see how things work for you and then upscale.

    My best wishes with you.

    Lol, it's easy to fill your head with knowledge and not know what to do with it. Most people spend 18 - 25 years of their life doing it.

    I'm sure you're familliar with enough theory to be able to set up a project yourself by now. Try making a journey thread, and see how that goes? Use it to motivate yourself.

    Good luck OP.

    I just now checked all your posts on the forum and I am surprised that you say you don't make any money online!!!! Isn't that what you're saying? because your OP tells me that your situation is something like that.

    Anyway, I think I saw your seller's feedback and you've sold quite a lot during last month (March) itself on ebay. Congrats on that! I hope that your current luck there won't get smashed into a barrier because of the undue pessimism created on this thread.

    I saw one of your earliest threads and it got me to your ebay account. May be I am wrong, and in that case I apologize. :) But come true on this one though... I want you to really prosper in whatever career/s you choose. Have seen that unnecessary pessimism can sink a thriving business needlessly. If that being the case, break the mental blocks that you're creating needlessly...
