Bless you OP, post is amazing and it should be read by anybody. After all, information is available and will always be available what you need is the right mindset for it. And the golden rule is on point. I learned this from experience especially when I first started IM. When you're desperate for quick money, you'll never make it. I should add that the number one reason newbs fail is because of shortcuts. They always try to look for shortcuts, they want step-by-step spoonfed method instead of STUDYING a method properly and figure out all the factors and twists that come into it !! One of the worst things this internet era has put in our head is the "instant result" thing. We always try to get instant results. Great things come slowly. There is a priceless satistfaction that comes from trial and error and doing something with your heart until you succeed. Once you start to appreciate the journey rather than expecting quick money, the path of success will be opened.
