    Hey all. So lately, iv been making money, however, id like to make alot more. Could you guys maybe give me a kick in the ass? Share your current IM earnings or if you dont feel comfortable with that, share something nice youve bought via IM earnings. Myabe this thread could be motivation for others as well because i know im not the only procrastinator here!

    set goals for yourself and associate rewards with meeting those goals. They can be financial, material, whatever. I'm linking to one of my mid-term goals in my sig and a picture of that is my desktop wallpaper so everytime I open my laptop to start work, that's what I see and it reminds me of what I'm doing.

    Goals can be anything from writing and submitting an article a day for a week - after which you reward yourself with X to making $10k in the next 3 months and rewarding yourself with y. Just remember that if you set goals that last more than a month you should have check-in points with the goal to make sure you are on track to meeting it and milestones with smaller rewards when you meet them.

    As you can see I'm quite successful myself. I probably make a lot more money than you but no big deal. Hey, some people just aren't as good as others!

    Anyways, stopped at the bank today and picked up my dough. Then a hit up the shops and blew it all no big deal or anything. Here's my latest purchase (before I made that bitch keep the change!). Pretty much the mods can just lock this thread because this should provide enough motivation for like ten people minimum.

    I couldn't agree with you more. Scale up like weight watchers!

    If money isn't motivation enough for you man I don't know what is. That's the reason you're here isn't it?

    Put a picture of something you've always wanted but couldn't quite afford right by your computer. That should help a little
