    Ok so I'm sure a lot of you have gotten burned out from IM at times in the past.

    Lately i have been burned out and cant be fucked doing much work online at all.

    Any my bank account aint looking that great either. I'm using SE Nuke which helps out a ton, but even still i cant be fucked finding and rewriting articles and content to put out there each day.

    I just cant be fucked working online anymore, ive been on and off like this for the past month. And if i don't get my shit together I'm gonna run out of fucking money.

    Internet Marketing is my ONLY thing, i cant go back to a normal job after knowing the potential there is online!

    What do you guys do to get you motivated again!?

    I like to search youtube for motivational vidoes.. Then I watch a few of those for a while

    This usually helps me...

    Do you have a plan or goal setting before you start a project? If you do for example 30 days plan to achieve 10 sales for a product I am promoting, where are you at?

    One of the most important thing is to track everything you do; duplicating what works for you and reinvesting more by outsourcing or automating. If things are not working according to your plan sit back and identify the problem. Change your strategy or give up the whole project and sell the site cheap for 100 to get back at least something.

    I have not been involved in IM for years so perhaps may be in the future I will feel the same way you do but there are tonnes of information here and elsewhere which I studied, implemented and made some $$ out of it within my first 60 days. One thing that really motivates me is if i scale it 5x more, i'll possible earn more and once i make more money I can make more and more $$...muahahahahahaa (evil laugh)

    Having a partner or a buddy helps in IM. Get someone near you to motivate you or perhaps even work together so you can pull each other up when things are not so smooth. My great partner is my wife, she knows almost to nothing about IM but she's always there supporting whatever I do, so.....

    Do drop me a pm and perhaps we could share some strategies and exchange idea to get some mojo juice running full steam again.

    Easy...
    FInd someone to outsource 80% of your "work" to, and pay them for 1-2 weeks worth of it upfront.

    Then, take whatever money you have left, phone up a friend (or be like me and shoot someone a Myspace message) that lives out of town, pack ONE bag of shit, and leave for 2 days. Get laid, break a few laws, and blow off some steam.

    Come back on the third day and get back to your grind.
    :)

    That's what I do anyways.

    hahaha yer the last 2 posts sound pretty cool......
    But you better believe it, even THAT hasn't worked so well.

    Im 19 and i used to be a mentor in an Internet Marketing Teaching type group put together by some other guys around my age. This was a year ago now, and out of all the 40 odd people we had now its only me and about one other guy still in Internet Marketing!

    Just goes to show you that the 95% fail rate is true. 95% of them just give up after so many failures and never look back.

    My biggest problem in IM has been not sticking to ONE THING AT A TIME. There are soooooo many ways to make money online! I just kept on jumping around to them all and not staying focused.

    Even if i make myself a goal, that always changes because i come up with a new idea and run some numbers which could make me $1000 a day with only 16 laser targeted sales a day. Which is one market im starting to get into right now, But i just gotta stay FOCUSED and CONSISTENT on it, which im finding is a little tough!

    Ive gotten all burned out even though im looking at a product that can make me at least 1k a day if i just stick to my plan of putting out content and articles each day and driving traffic.

    ahhhhhhh!

    Maybe it's your computer setup.

    I was like you about a month back when I found working with my laptop harder to do then with a large 19 inch monitor. Plus the sun in the background messed with me so I moved to a darker cooler spot in the house and guess what? I just finished an eBook I have been working on the past few months and wrote a sales page for it in just two days. :)

    Location maybe..

    This is good, mix offline business with your online passion. Actually it doesn't matter the outcome. Oxford college don't guarantee that all graduates will be presidents. A ferrari car salesman might not own a ferrari himself but that does not stop him from selling one and believing in it. I know millionaires myself who only know how to do one thing and they have been doing it for almost 30 years. Imagine that!

    In your post you seem to know what is stopping you - not following through and easily distracted. Stick to one man and just one only. You be amazed how much you can achieve when you just focus.

    Another tip is stay away from BHW. :) this site is very contagious, at certain days i just spend like 8 hours non stop digesting the informations here.

    lol yer this place has sometimes been a HUGE distraction for me.

    Yer i know whats stopping me. its just kinda hard at times to even START to get focused and get consistent again.

    I dont think its my computer set up, ive got a desktop and recently placed my computer under my desk and all i pretty much have here is my monitor and some paper work.

    With the old group it was pretty cool. We had a HUGE chat room in Skype with all these people from around the world. Well mainly from here in AUS and the US which meant there was always at least one person online helping someone out.

    It was pretty cool, i wouldn't mind setting that back up again, but due to my current financial situation i dont really have the time for that at the moment.

    Well what im doing is setting up a blog on my own domain but with the wordpress back office, and im gonna write up some posts and then schedule them to post each day, so im gonna make like 10 each day and then in like a week i will have it set to work by its self for over a month.

    Then im going to drive laser targeted traffic from Twitter with Tsnipe. It automatically finds and follows people that are talking about the "keyword" you choose. Then im going to do the same set up as above with the WP blog and use a script to automatically drop tweets every 2-3 hours and dropping my blog URL about 2-3 times a day, maybe even less.

    But right now i need to be working on my auto responder 6-7 day messages. And because this is a little bit of new territory for me, i think thats whats holding me back a little. Like with the whole psychology behind each days e-mail ect.

    The merchant of the CB product im promoting has a auto responder guide.....but still.........

    .........still burnt out :(

    For me personally, I have to have a certain time of the day to get out of the office and go so something completely different from what involves with IM. Go to the gym, the park, hell even sometimes just walk around the grocery store, mall, etc.....

    I find that I end up looking forward to these small things and that they are rewards for getting my work done. Also the fact when you start seeing results from the incoiing cash flow, thats always a motivator because you want to build upon it. Since IM is so hit or miss, it makes you excited when you find something working.
