    # METHOD : HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED - PARETO PRINCIPLE "80/20" #

    [ Dedicated to
    KardoseR and all others who struggle to motivate themselves ]


    This guy called KardoseR wrote in my journey this :

    "Hi good luck on your journey mate, you will for sure achieve it, you are very motivated I always struggle to take action, thats the biggest problem... Can you advise me how to break this wall that's holding me? i have a bunch of brilliant ideas but i need startup cash..."

    Once I saw his reply , belive me or not , I went to college thinking about him , I came back thinking about him, trying to find the best way to explain to him how to motivate himself .

    First of all , you may ask yourself , why I couldn't stop thinking about him , he is only BHW member , I don't know him , he is totally unknown for me . Well yes you are right , but my point is something else , is an ability that GOD gave me , to be TOTALLY OBSESSED about something I find interesting , something I like or want to have . This ability is extremly powerful , I never forgot my goals , I think about them day and night . It helps me stay focused . This is one of the most important key how to stay motivated , just think all the time about it .

    What is Pareto Principle ? This was first discovered by Pareto, an Italian Economist who found that 20% of people in Italy controls 80% of the wealth and land. 80/20 is also known as the ?Pareto Principle? . This means that also from all movies you watch only 20% of them will like you , only 20% of any book it contains the most important keywords , only 20% from all you friends are your real friends etc .
    Just to mention , it's only % that is not the same for all cases , it depents , in some case is 70-30 , in some 60-40 etc.

    How to use this rule in all aspects of our life ?

    All my life , I always have learnt for school only when the deadline came . It was useless , reading a lot all day , thinking that Im doing well , in fact it was waste of time , I rememberd nothing after 1 month , what a shame ! So I decided this year to try different method , and fortunately I found this Pareto Principle . I said to myself , you are going to learn 2-3H daily , in different times , because even if I stay all day learning , 80% of that time I will waste doing others thing (trying to concentrate after getting bored by reading) , so only 20% I will be able to learn something . IT WAS TRUE ! I continued to apply this rule last semester and it was amazing , I never got bored reading for my exams . Why ? It's simple !
    I never go to learn for 2 hours , only for 1 hour , sometimes even less . I never go to learn , only to READ ! Here is interesting part , the moment you say to yourself , Im going only to READ not to LEARN , Im going to study only for 30min. or 1 H . In that moment a lot of stress will be removed from your mind . In that moment in you are transforming that extremly boring task , into very easy task . The effect it's astonish , from that moment I never find difficulties to study .

    But once , I was thinking why not applying this rule to IM. Evertime I said to myself start to make money , you can make it , in my mind , a thought like this was "Work hard , work day and night , you know that to make money you need to take action . If you don't work 6-8 hours how you are supposed to make money , 30 min. are nothing . Take action take action ..." .
    This is how I in unconscious way , sent to my brain a lot of stress , making IM not fun , but BORING JOB , thinking only for $$ . Until one day ! Until that day , when I said to myself , stop man stop , you are killing yourself , why not trying Pareto Principle ?! So I did , I decided not to work , only to LEARN , EXPERIMENT , SEARCH , for only 1 or 2 hours daily . Here it starts that amazing effect , making IM really easy , fun , without even thinking to make money , only to LEARN , nothing else . It's great because a lot of time you will start to do something for example for only 20 min , but later you will found that you just spent 1 hour ! How easy , how simple !
    Remember even if you spend 10 hours working all day long to make money , only 20-30% of that time is important , time that brings most money . Only 20% of your all videos you have in YT acc , generate most of your earnings ! You can work with 20 networks but only few of them will generate for you the most of your money ! It's simple as that .

    So now you have your method how to motivate yourself ? Well it's far away , this is only how to manage your time , to make it easy ! But where is motivation hidden ? Let's explore ...

    Every day you say to yourself that you can make money online , that you have to take action , to start really to achieve your dream . But still something is missing ! I read everday , I see everyday how others make money , how they really work hard , what's the matter with [SIZE=2]ME !
    [SIZE=2]First , let me tell you [SIZE=2]that is not only you , all of us[SIZE=2] , [SIZE=2]have this periods of[SIZE=2] [SIZE=2]time when we simply can't [SIZE=2]start to take action [SIZE=2].[SIZE=2] But h[SIZE=2]ey Im readin[SIZE=2]g every day in[SIZE=2]spiration stuff , quotes , vi[SIZE=2]deos , jou[SIZE=2]rnerys of other , [SIZE=2]wh[SIZE=2]y is so HARD !

    [COLOR=#00ff00]IT[/COLOR][SIZE=2][COLOR=#00ff00]'S SIMPLY - YOU WANT IT BU[/COLOR][SIZE=2][COLOR=#00ff00]T YOU DON'[/COLOR][SIZE=2][COLOR=#00ff00]T KNOW [B]WHY[/B] YOU WANT IT - YOU ARE MISSING THE MOST E[/COLOR][SIZE=2][COLOR=#00ff00]SSEN[/COLOR][SIZE=2][COLOR=#00ff00]TIAL PURPOSE - [B]YOU[/B][/COLOR][SIZE=2][COLOR=#00ff00][B]R WHY[/B][/COLOR]

    [COLOR=#00ff00]Let me explain this to you ...[/COLOR]

    You have your goal , perfect ! Y[SIZE=2]ou have the [/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE]

You know that you have to take action , again you never act [SIZE=2]! If I as[SIZE=2]k you wh[SIZE=2]y you want to ma[SIZE=2]k[SIZE=2]e money [SIZE=2]online , you might say , I [SIZE=2]don't want to work offline , I[SIZE=2] want to [SIZE=2]be boss of myself , [SIZE=2]I [SIZE=2]hate [SIZE=2]9-5 , I hate scho[SIZE=2]ol , I want t[SIZE=2]o have mone[SIZE=2]y , I want to wo[SIZE=2]rk [SIZE=2]because [SIZE=2]I like IM [SIZE=2].... R[SIZE=2]EALLY , REALLY ! Ar[SIZE=2]e you sure ? Please be totally honest , If I ask to you , can you live tomorrow [SIZE=2]if you are not work[SIZE=2]ing your dream job (IM) [SIZE=2]. Of course you [SIZE=2]can ! Even i[SIZE=2]f you sa[SIZE=2]y[SIZE=2] to me no I can't , you are lyin[SIZE=2]g yourself [SIZE=2], not me , I know deep down you can [SIZE=2]live , [SIZE=2]this is how [SIZE=2]you lived till [SIZE=2]now and always will live until you find you[SIZE=2]r WH[SIZE=2]Y ?

    [SUB]ilovechuktaylor -[/SUB] " 15 Year Old - From $0 to $50 Per Day - Follow Me[SUB]"

    Very simple he knew his WHY , and his WHY was "Debt"



    "So , the biggest motivation for me as a 15 year old dude, to work that much as how i'm planning to , is the situation which i'm in. I have a normal life, but my dad has to pay a credit debt of $700 per month while his salary is $300 per month as an Employment Coordinator (he is an Sociologist). I gave all of my earnings to him and that's what i'm planning to do with the next payments I receive (hopefully)."

    SenzuBean - "A month ago I didn't even know what PPD was."

    His WHY was "BILLS"

    " Mom would you be happy if I started to help pay the bills around here? " She said " Of course I would be!

    In my jouney I said I want to pass all my college exams with the highest grades , I WANT IT SO BAD .
    My WHY :"
    [/SUB]SCHOLARSHIP[SUB] "[/SUB]
    [SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2][SIZE=2]
    [/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE]

    For example your WHY can be : "To pay or invest in something useful " , "To be the first among my friends that have been able to make money online " , " To convince all my friends , family that they were wrong " , "To live like a boss" etc .

    Just another short example . One of my friends last year was really w[SIZE=2]orking hard in college to pass exams , so late[SIZE=2]ly[SIZE=2] she [SIZE=2]is having problem finding h[SIZE=2]er motivation to start again . [SIZE=2]She said [SIZE=2]t[SIZE=2]hat [SIZE=2]maybe [SIZE=2]la[SIZE=2]st year she was able to work that hard because we were wor[SIZE=2]king together ! [SIZE=2]WRONG [SIZE=2]. It was because she knew her WHY , it was "[SIZE=2]Deadline[SIZE=2]" . Now that she[SIZE=2] [SIZE=2]has passed h[SIZE=2]er fi[SIZE=2]rst year exams , is not able to pass other exams , simple because she [SIZE=2]is missing her WHY[SIZE=2]. I told [SIZE=2]her , but she is not convi[SIZE=2]ced yet [SIZE=2]. So days are passing , she is doing nothing ...

    [/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE]
    This goes also for you , Unless you find your "WHY" you will NEVER EVER ACHIEVE ANY GOAL !


    Find your WHY , for everthing not only for IM , in all aspects of your life , , be TOTALLY OBSESSED about your goals , belive that GOD will help you , then nothing can stop you . YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE !

    "For things to change I MUST change first "

    Best Regards

    You should add one more thing that I saw in someone's signature a few days ago - "If you want to change, expect to feel uncomfortable" - very true!

    The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss talks a lot about the Pareto principle. Recommended for those who haven't read it.

    accelerator_dd - Totally agree with you

    Paco De Lucia - I have that book in my PC , I was reading "Rich Dad , Poor Dad" that's why I couldn't read it . I will start to read it immediately . I learnt in college about Pareto Principle .

    To all of those who still doubt what I wrote , read my journey !

    Thanks and +rep for your post Alonzzo,

    "Find Your WHY". That's it!, just what I need as now I feel somewhat tired and had slow progress on my project. It's really hit the nail in the head, thank you :D

    Thanks man, this pareto principle is simply brilliant. You REALLY deserve to succeed now. You wrote this text with your heart bro, thats awesome and i really enjoyed reading it (with space songs lol). I will really apply this. That's the magic, that's how different humans evolve, and how the others stay the same.

    Thats how we manage to stand out from the others...

    You are now a rising star to me.

    Thanks OP (+repped) but you have manipulated this principle a bit lol (in a good way). It is not about "why", It is about "numbers". It is about getting the most (80%) from the least (20%).

    Simply put:

    - 80% of your revenue comes from 20% of your sites (so concentrate on them, get rid of other 80% crappy sites)
    - 80% of your problems are due to 20% of your friends (get rid of them)
    - 80% of your energy goes to 20% of issues (deal with bigger ones)
    - 80% of your happiness comes from 20% of the people you know but you dedicate 20% of your time to them (so spend much time with the loved ones like gf/bf/family)
