    Alright this is kind of a stupid and elusive obvious post. But I wanted to share something from experience and from people that told me about their experience.

    A while ago I was playing Online Poker, making about $50 an hour. I had my strategy, I knew the people I was playing against and it was working. Well I listened to others and changed the way I played, changed where I played and against who I played because those people were more successful than me. I was chasing after the new shiny thing that people talked about in forums.

    Result, I broke even for 2 months and stopped played all together. Which makes me think that in life, if you want to be successful, you need to stick with something you know have potential, something that is proven or that already works, and tweak it. Work at it until it makes you thousands per months.

    If you just go from method to method without mastering anything you will never hit the jackpot. I talked about that to one of my friend that's big into IM and Self-Improvement like myself and he totally agrees. He realizes the only reason he's not financially free at the moment is because he did not stick with the first working money making method he was using (He does WH IM).

    I'm sick of hearing about all those people that make 30k a month and only started IM 6 months ago. But how many of you stuck to a method for more than 6 months? And how many of you have been into IM for a lot more than 6 months?

    This theory (which I am sure I'm not the first person to talk about it) is from my limited experience and observation so take it with a grain of salt. But I find it makes sense.

    ive stuck to a working method for about 4-5 months....


    Since I don't do this full time, I dont have the same need to diversify that some do.... However I've been working on expanding the list of cookies that I stuff simply because I want to keep the money coming in...

    Well said bro, I'm also guilty of jumping from one affiliate program to another without giving my best shot.
