    I have been in my house for the last 4 months on my computer ..trying to make money...I spend 10-12 hours a day ..and I feel like I dont accomplish much at all...few dollars here and there certainly crushes your spirit..

    Do you ever get depressed from being at home too much?

    Do you ever Talk to yourself?

    Are you inside your head at all?

    I am an outgoing person ..I have dated beautiful women..I have tons of friends..but recently i got a license suspended and have gone hrough tons of issues where im unable to leave my house...and havent made any $$$ at all..and i am starting to feel a little depressed is that normal?

    :(

    I was where you are last year. Its basically because you dont have a set schedule therefore you become an IM'aholic. All your free time goes into IM. It can be addicting and fun at times but it can suck your time away. Set a schedule for yourself. Certain hours are IM time and Certain hours are relax time. plus I work the best inthe morning. On days where I used to work all day I would get distracted and not really work efficiently later inthe day.

    Also always look back every few months or so. What have you accomplished? Are you gaining ground or are you beating a dead horse? Sometimes we want something so bad that we dont want to admit to ourselves that its not working an that we have to move on and try something else.

    Fuck that! Dont let im get you down. If you give in to how you feel you are going to fail. Rocsk79 is right. Set up a schedule and stick to it. What methods are you trying that arent making doe? I would say if you have gave your method a good try for at least 2-4 weeks and arent seeing a reasonable profit then move on to something else. Pm if you need pointers.

    I'm gonna try and set up a schedule..but most of my day is spent home since i cant go anywhere and i live pretty far from anyone i use to know..right now i have been trying with facebook, youtube, twitter, and CL but cant find something that works ..but man I start freaking out when i think too much..i get inside my own head too much ..I hate when i get to thinking..but I will keep pushing forward..

    There are advantages of being a shut in.. You get sick less, no worries about pig flu, less chances of getting locked up, less chances of attracting STD's and when the zombie apocalypse breaks out you won't be the first to go.

    Did I mention no pig flu?

    Get out of the house. You need a clear head. Take a break doing non IM related stuff for a few days. Go and see your friends and go ask a hot girl for a date. There is more to life than just making money.

    eh sadly...I had no life before IM, so now it really doesn't matter...
    BUT when I get to college, I'm going to get a social life and bang as many girls
    as possible...heartless I know but, not alot of people have connected with me emotionally or socially and I'm starting to become a little heartless...

    let me guess, home custody with a gps bracelet on your ankle? lol
    did you see Disturbia? don't you have a hot next door girl and a serial killer in your neighborhood?
    seriously dude, don't fuck your life
    you said you have friends, used to date with hotties, why don't you do this nowadays? i don't want an answer, just ask yourself (i hope you can't lie to yourself)
    at least the friday and saturday night is for going out and it's not an option, it's a must and no offense, but especially if you can't make hardly any money in 4 months in IM, you have to think about that and you have to change your methods asap, i hope it's not the case, but it also can be that IM is not for you
    so sometimes shut the fucking machine down, go out with your friends, grab a beer, get laid and don't forget to rinse and repeat this process very often :)

    Be like this guy! Its the way to go, if you feel like shit bang a few girls, it will make you feel great. Even if you have a gf lol. Start working out, think about going back to school, start smoking weed. I dunno...

    Considering I sleep here too, I easily spend 22+ hours per day at home.... Not a big home either but a cozy (small) 1 bedroom apartment in a great neighborhood. After about 3-4 months of intense at home work, I had a strong desire to go outside and needed a new plan.

    Luckily, theres a park (Actually the Chicago River) that runs behind my apartment and my wifi reaches :) Now, I wake up, make some coffee, and goto the Park to do my morning work from around 6-8 am then I come back home, make more coffee, and do some more work in the office from around 830-3 that is immediately followed by a 1 hour nap. Than I wake up around 4, go jogging (Something I started only due to my urge to be outside) and get back in around 530. Then, I watch TV till 730 or so and continue to do more work from around 730-1am

    Rinse Repeat 7x Weekly
