    Well the name of the title is either stupid or just a marketing trick to get your attention, because I want you to know these things you will read below. (tl'ri = too long, read it)

    Some people just don't understand what it means to start taking action, never give up, or just stop losing time collecting too much info that you won't use it anyway.

    The titles you will read here, are applicable in your casual daily life, but since we are on a web marketing forum, we will head straight to these facts from the content I wrote for each of these titles.


    1. Stop spending time with the wrong people :smashfrea
    a) Stop spending your time with people that are not making any money online and talk with them about making money online. Funny thing is, that most of the people around the IM niche, are really following others advice, thinking that the 'other' person are an expert in a specific domain, even if that 'other' person doesn't make anything except bragging and criticizing with illusions.

    b) Straight to the point: If you will be in an IM circle where guys are talking all day long how to boost your income on Fiverr or just how to make a quick 5 bucks with a lot of work, then you are in the wrong room. As in real life, if you spend your time with people that are making good money and their interests on high projects with a high outcome, then your world will shape as their world, in time.

    2. Stop running from your problems and face them today :swordfigh

    We all know we have a problem setting up a certain campaign or applying a certain method we found on this forum, let's say. Most of us would either bookmark some sites/threads for a later inspection or just delay our plans because we just don't have the mood. Complaining = being a poor time and space waster. No one wants to hear excuses, not even you! So why don;t you just take action on methods?

    In this forum, there are people made some extraordinary life changing threads. Life changing = you being poor and start making from 0$ to over 5k a month. Well that should do it.

    Problem is, there are always skeptics around or even people who doesn't want competition. I'm not rude, but I can vouch for the patterns I observed. Most of the methods really works! But you have to be creative and aware that the OP will never tell you their blue print. So what? Make your own! Add a twist, be creative, it's not really that hard, trust me!

    My point: Whenever you read a [Method] thread, instead of searching for the posts where people would say that this won't work, search for the posts where people will improve that method. (See the full half of the glass)

    3. Stop lying to yourself :squint:

    You dream of hitting the big jackpot one day with Internet Marketing, yet today you feel bored and just feel the mood to download a movie from torrents, and watching it while eating popcorn. Well let me tell you, that if you are going to depend on your MOOD and just lie to yourself that tomorrow will be any different than today, then you are so wrong. And if you don't believe this #3 point, well, guess what. You're lying to yourself right now. Don't lie your brain, 'caz he will believe it, trust me I know.

    4. Stop trying to be someone you?re not :bush1:

    I'll just start with a quick story: One night I was so drunk that I was bragging on some Skype Channel that I'm the prince of some niche, banking and such. The next day I woke up, I realized how "douchey" I sounded and how much I was hurting to myself, thinking I am someone that I wasn't in reality. I wasn't lying, I was/am doing well with that niche, but from the moment you etiquette yourself on mastering a certain thing, that's the moment when you will start to decline, fall.. and lose interest without even realizing.. because you will still lie to yourself as the master of a certain method or niche, even if you will hit the bottom.

    5. Stop being scared to make a mistake :scared1:

    Being afraid to invest? Don't worry, you can always start with bare hands. But what you are are really afraid of, is to lose your time on something that won't work.

    Remember what I said on #2??

    To be honest, I failed a lot of projects. But I learend to see the good from my fails.Maybe 80% of my work was fail, but that 80% gave me SO MUCH experience that it helped my other 20% of work to achieve a great success!! I'm sorry for writing a long ass thread, but I can honestly say that that 20% I'm talking made me a lot of money. So don't be afraid to try and fail. Because never giving up will ultimately bring you success.

    6. Stop exclusively looking to others for happiness and problems :bored:

    a) Stop losing your time reading all those "journeys" or "Ego-Fueling" threads where people brag about on what they used their money on/for. I know it might be motivating, but why won't you 'write' your own story? It's time to learn, that time=money

    b) I hope you will not hate me for saying this, but stop losing your time reading threads like how someone got banned or how someone has a problem with his 'whatever'. Time is money, learn this, make a tattoo on your forehead (joking), but just understand its true meaning. Yes, we have to help others too, but there must be a limit as well. We are all here to make money, not to clean each other's nose 'caz the other one got a flu.

    7.
    Stop thinking you?re not ready :scratchch

    *When I first started in IM, I said to myself: Hmm.. this strange CPA thing might be hard, I will check it later.

    *So I'll just stick to something easier. Something easier means less money, but this is stupidly fake

    *You can start doing whatever, and realize how easy that was.. as soon as you will start using your brains and learn/take actions on that.

    *Easy doesn't mean you don't have to work nor using your head.

    8. Stop trying to compete against everyone else :thrasher:

    It's useless to feel disappointed that you can't make 10k a month like your e-buddy. There's no point. You are your own competition. Be better today than you were yesterday.

    But that doesn't mean that, as BTB said, you don't have to try outrank your competition. (I mean he did said to outrank the other)

    My point is that you have to compare only to the "yesterday you". But when you go to battle, outrank the other person!

    9. Stop complaining and feeling sorry for yourself :adore:

    I receive almost daily, messages form people, about their poor life, that they either have to raise their kids or need money for college or just hoping to get a new and better life, and asking me to tell them some 'secret method' to make money.

    It's time to learn that complaining is not something that will make the other interested in you. Some might feel sorry and try to help, but what you really want, is to get real and make a good connection. Instead of saying your sad story, just shout for help with straight facts about your problem. Considering that your problem is already researched and you jsut need to fill a few gasps. But if you are going to complain about your life and just ask for help, well I won't even care. Cruel? Not. But if you would ask people with a specific question/problem about your method on which you are already working, then that's another story. And that's the way to do it.

    10. Don't forget to enjoy life every now and then :trytofly:

    Doing IM is not as easy it looks. Don't forget to spoil yourself or at least your gf, mom or whoever you want. You might think this is stupid, but actually this creates you a certain environment and memories, that will motivate and remeber you a part of the outcome of your IM career.



    Being successful in IM, can be started via this forum. But you must learn, HOW to read the forum. And this line, is the best advice you will ever get!

    Nice tips. They will work very well easily. A lot of people disregard some of the things you brought up and it takes them down and makes them want to stop.

    fun thing is... it's this posts that people need to read the most. instead they read 100 methods and don't use the advice Madruga has written here to start one of them.

    i appreshiate your effort!
