[Motivation Thread] - Realities of IM and BHW

Discussion in 'BlackHat Lounge' started by redfan123, Dec 17, 2012.

    This is just a wake-up call and hopefully a motivator. In all my time here on BHW, reading and digesting, discarding and collating, perfecting and tweaking, twisting and changing, I have noticed in amongst the gargantuan plethora of information that ridiculous questions are still posted regularly. Yes. Retarded, ridiculous, and fucking STUPID questions are asked. This is of course drowned out mostly by good discussions and a general spirit of good natured contribution and education. So I thought maybe it was time to chip in with a little bit of what I have learned in the last few years at BHW.

    The realities of IM:

    1. THERE IS NO EASY WAY. End of.
    2. Yes, you really do have to fill in 30 CPA applications.
    3. Yes, you do have to constantly add new FB friends.
    4. Yes, you do have to linkbuild and network like a fucking fiend to compete.
    5. Yes, you need a plan.
    6. Yes, you do need to take action.
    7. Yes, you need to re-invest if you want long-term success
    8. Fucking NO, you will NOT be rich tomorrow.
    9. JESUS CHRIST NO! No-one is going to spoon feed you.
    10. THERE IS STILL NO EASY WAY. End of.
    11. Yes, you will need to use your mind and create your OWN spin on things.
    12. NO, an eBook will not make you serious money UNLESS YOU ARE SELLING IT or the method can't be saturated!
    13. You will have to do some work, if you want to make money.
    14. Yes, you will have to log out of World of Warcraft/Call of Duty/Gaia if you ever want to begin making some bank.
    15. Yes, you will have to stay awake until 4am linkbuilding/posting/researching/keywording/blogging.
    16. Work now, play later. The online millionaires didn't jerk off for 5 years to become rich. (They are jerking off now though).
    17. YES, you need to have knowledge of/interest in your niche or product.
    18. No, there is still NO EASY WAY. End of.
    19. You WILL need help. Of some kind. From someone.
    20. YES, it is possible to make money, and bucketloads of it, online.
    21. Ask the right questions, and you will often answer them yourself.
    22. Most importantly: Learn how to ask the right questions.
    23. Test your method for MORE than one day [see point 8]. Just because it doesn't work overnight, doesn't mean it's FAIL.

    This may all sound like negativity, but in fact what it is, is reality. When I first got into this game, I thought I could become rich in weeks (LOL). Inevitably I got the shit scammed out of me by the big boys and I fell for about 4 get rich programs, before I realised that I was IN THE WRONG POSITION. That's right. I thought "It should be me at the top". And now, it almost is. Thanks to BHW.

    I am now in the process of scaling up, and anything else I do is just for fun, shits and giggles. So I hope the 23 reality checks above will motivate you. When you are asking the daft, fucking retarded questions and the other blackhatters are telling you that

    a)You should take action
    b)You can't expect to be spoonfed
    c)Your method is shit/cool/needstweaking
    d)You're a fucking idiot for asking something so stupid

    they are doing so because they KNOW. They have done the work. They have realised the 23 things above already.

    That's right. They KNOW. Come here to learn. Do not,I repeat do NOT come here to be spoon fed and hugged because it won't happen.

    The good thing is, you are not a retard. You found BHW. Now use it ;)

    edit: added reality check 23 (Thanks TFGreen!)

    Well said redfan123. I also learned the hard way 9-10 years ago. "Do As I Teach" - Spend 2 hours here(at BHW) Learning, then spend the next 2 hours Doing what you just learned. Do it every day for the next 6 months - I guarantee you'll have some serious cash in the bank.

    5 Star Post Brotha.

    I'm sick of threads spewing that "Peaceful Buddha Reciprocity Holier-Than-Thou Tryhard and Succeed" crap people keep spinning straight off of Steve Pavlina here (see: The Right Way of Making Money) . It means literally nothing, and that's why big dogs in the personal development keep saying it, because it makes no sense, so they'll pay for their $2,000 1 hour coaching session.

    Reality is hard to face for some. A magical world of Karma seems better, but it's only watering down reality.

    That thread right there was one of the reasons I wrote this thread. That shit helps no-one. TBH I think some BHers are too ready to be as you put it "holier than thou" because they are already makin bank.

    Not to mention that OP is doing what every schmuck on WF is doing. Posting that same regurgitated crap and funneling people to his site to make money, under the guise of being some super altuistic helpful guy. Sad really.

    Actually this was one of my biggest problems TFGreen. I would find a method and think "ZOMG! Its all so CLEAR!" Then I would try it for two days and think "Oh. It's not working", then move onto something else and begin the cycle of failure again. Guess we should add another reality check: 23. Test your method for more than one day!

    Stay Focused and become an expert in one thing only. I know it's tough to do - so easy to change in midstream. You need to plan daily what you intend to accomplish, then do it. Plan, Plan, Plan - Do, Do, Do - Win, Win, Win

    Happy Holidays To All

    Amazing thread indeed, lot of golden points made.
    One thing that I have learned over the last one year in SEO business is DIVERSIFY.

    I would say "You'd be daft NOT to diversify!".

    I have many fingers in many pies, plus other people's fingers in other people's pies and so on.....
