    What do you do when you get frustrated cause things are not working? 'Cause most things on this site just seem like i can't pull it off. I'm like trying to comprehend what people are explaining but i just dont get it. Sitting all the day behind the computer trying some things that people say on this site and at the end of the day i'm still at zero. What keeps you going? I only made 20€ with youtube adsense, but that was just by one random video.

    thats already success.
    why not do the same again with another video and a different youtube account?

    if you can put 5-10 such videos/month on youtube , that would mean 10 x 20$

    you dont have to keep looking for new ideas here.
    youve already found something that works for you.
    now do it massively and daily. i bet you can multiply those 20$.

    so whats the problem?

    It's difficult to explain, really — success is different to different people and what inspires me may not do the same for you.

    However shallow it may sound, money is a huge motivator in itself. From my experience, your perspective also changes (towards how you approach markets) once you have made a decent bit of money. So, it becomes a kind of vicious circle.

    There are different things that could motivate you. Visualizing what you want to get, of course, is one of them, especially if it comes naturally to you. It can be equally demoralizing though if you're not working towards your goals. You have made a start so that's a good thing. What you could do, perhaps, is try and set smaller, short-term and realistic goals. For example, try and cross the $100 mark.

    Once done, try and cross the $500 mark. So on and so forth. Celebrate just a little when you reach each milestone. These goals can keep you motivated and can, in fact, help you a lot. :)

    EDIT: Another small thing: if you haven't already, add a couple of people on Skype who are at the same level as you. Set collective goals and keep a track of how all of you're doing. Doing something like this publicly can be good too.

    Having said that, different strokes for different folks. May or may not work for you.

    -> Desertfox

    It was a video that i filmed myself, it was spontaneous rap battle between 2 terrible bad rappers in dutch. So i can't really do it again..

    -> Apoorv

    Yeh, i know the stories on this site about peoples succes do motivate me a little. Thats why i visit the site everyday to find something that i could do. Last thing i tried was the pinterest+ blogger+ adsense method.. But it didn't work. I pinned every day alot of pics but almost no repins. I'm not looking for 100$ a day methods.. I also wanna see it build up and be proud of myself of what i accomplished.
    The skype thing is a nice tip.

    Thnx for the replies.
