One of the questions I ask myself in the morning is "how do I become motivated?". I've been putting in tons and tons of research, but for what? I can't find myself to stay on task for longer than an hour. I seem to have too many distractions throughout my day. I can recognize my problems but it's hard to take them on directly. I joined this site about 3 years ago in hopes of making some money online to make my life during school a little more comfortable. Everything was so confusing at first, I spent time to learn the lingo, finding methods to generate income, hopping across multiple sites and spending countless hours on research. Now things are different. I know my way around these parts, I'm a little older. I have more research under my belt. I was always afraid to spend money as that high school student. The possibility of not making the money back was so frightening. I had a girlfriend and a job in retail and that took up more time than I'd have liked. I'm getting at that point of my life where I want to go out and be something. I have deeper interests. I don't want to be stuck at a dead-end job for the rest of my life. I don't want to waste my time in another school where I learn shit that doesn't help me face my real problems in life. I'm tired of telling myself to settle for less. I want to take action. I am going to take action.
