    Hey Guys, well aware that this is not a self-help forum but i'm guessing many of you on here can relate to this.
    My first IM business about 5 years ago was a huge success and I lived very comfortably off of that for a good amount of time.
    Since then i've setup, created and managed 4 others in different niches/ revenue, all of which have failed and cost me a fair amount of time and money in doing them.

    Just starting to lose focus, what keeps you guys going? Ever hit a wall and been able to overcome it?
    Currently, the second I even glance at my work I just get reminded of previous failures and give up before I start.

    It's all about letting go and keep on going.

    One should not wander with what is not, but rather focus on what is and go from there. Depression is wishing that what is not becomes what we want. Let go and keep on going.

    Funny thing is that, whether or not you want, you will keep on going with life while wishing things were different instead of working with what you have :)

    Been there, done that and I keep on rocking :)

    maybe what you need is a little time away from IM
    obviously easier said than done, but you will probably bounce back with renewed energy and ideas
