    I have started 2 journey threads in the past with big plans.....didnt finish any of them quit on one the second day XD
    I change my mind way too often first i wanted to do authority sites then cpa, ppd + youtube, MNS, Affiliate marketing, ppc +cpa, day trading, bitcoins, forex, etc......
    Now i read voidrays journey (cool guy) about how he was making 25k a month and then started over and is already making good money again or something (didnt finish reading the thread) got all inspired and shit but then looked back and thats the same way i started the other 2 journey threads and didnt finish them...

    Kinlee had a journey thread i think it was 10k a month she wanted? and she achieved it.....how fukin cool is that?

    What do you succesfull people do to combat laziness? or is it just me?
    What motivates you to stick to it and keep going? the money?

    The main part of becoming successful in IM is your mindset. You need to be able to concentrate and be motivated which comes from a balance of work, exercise, health, being social and ofc the money.

    Sitting at a computer all day and trying to work takes a toll on us.

    I use to be like this, but I made myself a good routine and I have lots of energy now.
    My routine is: wake up, go work out, work in the afternoon and then go out with friends at night.
    Another thing that plays a big factor is what you eat... if all you eat is McDonalds, you are going to feel like shit. Start watching what you eat and stick to eggs, salads, chicken, vegetables, fruits and other healthy foods.

    Find something that motivates you while working. Putting all the checks you get on the wall above your computer is a good one.



    ... This should be enough motivation to get you busy!

    Internet marketing isn't for everyone.

    The real problem is that you are jumping on trends where there is no room left to make any of "The Big Money". Sure, some people are still making something but the pool is so crowded that it is hard to compete. It is like you are trying to open a small store beside a WalMart and then wonder why you go out of business.

    You have to use the things you learn here and apply them in your own way. Stop focusing on the band wagon that everyone and their Grandma are jumping on and find your niche.

    You need to pick one thing and do it well until it's making you residual income. Then and only
    then should you move on to the next project. Motivation? Hard to believe you can't find it
    if you have your eyes open.

    The issue is discipline, if you think any full time marketer here never gets tired of their job at some point you're wrong. I wouldn't do anything else, but occasionally repetitive tasks and certain jobs really give me a headache and I'd prefer to read or work on something else. But I can't, so I just put my nose to the grindstone and get it done.

    If you can't find the "get stuff done" part of IM within you, take drastic measures to find it. Lock yourself in a room, fast, throw away your xbox, whatever it takes.

    Start something which Interest you.
    Because I believe laziness only comes when you do something that isn't your passion.
    After some work, you get money that definitely motivate you.
    And only you is the person who can help you in ending laziness, so just leave it.

    The money is definitely a big factor but ambition, desire to succeed and willingness to fail and learn from mistakes are much more important.
    For me money isn't as important as being able to afford the freedom to do anything i want. That is what true financial success brings.

    For laziness, you need some motivation - think about what you want from life, something that you cant yet afford - lifestyle, house, possessions etc - once you have that, you have something to work towards.

    As Eric Thomas said, you need Vision, and you need information about something out there that you want, but currently dont have.

    Thats what will drive you to where you want to be.

    As for you giving up on every journey. Make your next journey not giving up - pick a method and stick with it for 1 month, no matter what. keep trying and trying at it.

    Think about your final goal and keep working on one method until you reach it. If you see some other good method, save it for later but don't start working on it just yet. Keep working on the method you chose and you'll reach your goal. ;) For some people money is the motivation, for some it's social status, and for others something different. You have to figure it out for yourself what is it that motivates you the most. :)

    Personally I have trouble with this also. You need to figure out is WANTS vs INTERESTS. Everyone here WANTS to make money. I think the most Successful IM people here are so INTERESTED that they are constantly learning and adapting to IM. As for yourself, you get hyped and fired up because you want to earn what kinlee and others are earning here. Are you interested in it enough to spend the countless hours failing?

    My laziness got me to where I am, I dedicated my time to looking for something which takes very little effort, as I have no motivation to do anything. Although I know if I put more effort in I could do a lot better.
