    Hey guys, Cyrus here.

    As some of you may or may not know, I don't actually make as much money as some of you
    Would like to think. I used to make a little over $3000 a month using a few methods from here.
    Now, earlier on, I was living at my aunts place, and realized a few things.
    YOU CAN'T MAKE MONEY IF YOU DON'T WORK!
    I know that sounds retarded because of all of the automated software and webapps out there.
    But it is completely true. So down to business here.

    This is all learned from my own experience.

    Making money online, is actually one of the easiest things you can do, and you are the only one
    that can decide how successful you will be.


    Get Rid of ALL Distraction

    For me, living in an enviroment that was unstable and very negative, I could never work
    for the simple fact that I always had to worry about what was going to happen tomorrow
    or the next day. You want to make your living enviroment peaceful and vibrant at the same time.
    Set your desk up, next to a window, get some fresh air from that and some
    good direct sunlight. having shades is also good , just in case the sun is blurring your screen.
    FACEBOOK
    Go over to your facebook account, and change your password. then deactivate your account.
    for some of you, facebook is a major distraction. I used to go on there, for no reason at all. just typing in "facebook" and then i was sucked into their game
    so, get rid of it for now. it will only kill your earnings.
    The same goes for myspace or any other social network. or even news sites

    Get rid of any attachment that will not allow you to work.
    most of you are young, so get this.. life goes on. if you have a girl that won't
    stop texting you, or calling, or just simply won't shut up while your working
    boot her ass to the curb. or tell her that you simply need to work to get some
    good money.
    Money isn't everything, but thats how you live, it pays your bills, gets you food, and everything else.
    go figure


    Putting you mind into WORK mode


    So, this is the killer. you need to come to realize, that, making money, in general
    is what keeps life going. Think about how , if you don't make any money
    you will lose your house, you won't have any food. and because of that, its like a huge avalanche
    no gf, living on the street, no vehicle, you will end up a bum, selling your laptops, desktops, cars, whatever, just to get by and get some food in your stomach.
    how do i know this ?
    well, before i got into IM, i actually left my state when i turned 18, and moved to a state where i didn't know anyone, and lived on the street.

    i know.. suprising right ? well, suffice to say, I made it, and it was really nice to get
    away from everyone and every thing. I ended up taking a shower at the local YMCA every couple days, and sleeping outside, while it rained, snowed, and even hailed. (FYI - it was winter)
    negative degree weather.
    not ever knowing where or how i was going to get my next meal. that was horrible.
    not having a stable job, trying to cope with myself, and find some sort of heat source to keep my body from going into hypertensive shock from the
    cold weather.


    So take that as a lesson learned that living on the streets is horrible, and you could
    possibly die from it.

    Get your ass back online, and FOCUS on work.

    also realize that, you may end up doing some work for free for a month, or even 2, but when you finish that up, you will be seeing some good money
    don't get me wrong, there are some fast money methods out there.

    but think of it like this.. anyone know how long it took SweetFunny to make
    Scrapebox ?
    well , im sure she banked a small fortune from that, but probably took months to create that program.

    So the work is always worth the hassle no matter how you slice the cheese.



    Now that you have realize that, get some good, upbeat music going
    or maybe just something small, like... have the news play in the background

    My mind thinks faster, and more efficiently than most people. So for me.
    I had to slow my brain down a little bit.. and you can ask BassTrackerBoats
    I have come up with some perfect ideas while I was in my "mode"

    I won't say how I did it, for legal reasons.

    Just find something that works for you


    Quick Summary

    You have rid yourself of distraction
    You have your brain in your "mode"



    Finding a Method that is right for YOU!


    This is actually the easiest part.

    Ask yourself something... "WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO"

    and i mean in general.
    you like sex ?
    you like to work on car ?
    you like to write ?
    you like to draw ?
    you like pimping your mom out for pennies?

    what do you do, in your free time, that you are passionate about.
    thats the questions.

    I won't go into detail with this, but the answer to that question, is your solution
    to getting started on making money online..
    lets take this for example.

    bob asked himself this, and his answer was
    "i like to ride my harley"

    yea ? you like to ride your harley, what about this, start a website, about how you like to ride your harley, new experiences, new places traveled,
    do a youtube video, mount a camera on your bike and make short clips and place
    it on youtube or video sites, backlink to your own site

    see where this is going ?

    alot of people like the same things you do.. so the traffic is always there



    Ending Summary


    You have no distractions,

    You have your method,
    Your at peace,
    YOU are Ready to make money online


    So stop procrastinating, and get to work. hopefully reading this will help some of you.

    Personally, this is what helped me.

    I really like that idea. Facebook is a definite distraction. So are excuses.

    Living on the streets makes you a savage. If you can survive those harsh conditions, it makes you stronger when you are back to living somewhat comfortably because the thought of going back keeps you going.

    Great story.

    I like these types of threads for the inspiration purposes. But there is a problem with them for most people and its purely psychological! If your mind is in a low ebb (a symptom of depression), even reading your inspirational post is a massive chore. I read it but not all the words went in and my mind skipped past a few words.

    My mind today is in a low ebb, because i haven't made a penny for the last two weeks with Clickbank and i'm completely stumped at why the tap has switched off.

    Before this two weeks i was making between $60 and $200 a week since November 2010. My site was ranking highly for appropriate keywords on Google and still maintains those good rankings today.

    For the last week and a half the statistics on Clickbank were in constant yellow mode (meaning the stats were slowly coming through) and this coincided with the sudden stop of earnings.

    So i checked the URL links and tracking with regards to my Clickbank username being at the bottom of the checkout page and everything is working ok.

    I'm stumped what to do next, Ive reached the wall on productivity. Going from spending 16 hours a day for 2 months solid building links, writing articles, creating open link-wheels, building the website, creating the graphics for the website, writing and seo optimizing the money page to being totally crippled productivity wise.

    All that effort has got me next to nothing, in terms of the work and effort to earnings ratio. The temptation of procrastination, is a really tempting drug when effort goes mostly unrewarded.

    Time to take a break and get me thoughts back i think.

    This should be helpful for everyone who doesn't have the right mind set! I remember when i didn't. But when i did decide to actually do what you spoke of, The $$$ came in ;)

    Do it guys :D

    P.S if you work early in the morning, The sunlight really helps to wake you up rather then coffee or water

    Great post, I'd like to add that most people hear "work", see "work", think about what it would be like to "work" but never actually do it. And because they never work, they never get any experience and things never take off for them. Planning is important but should probably take only 5% of your actual time on a money-making project. We're human so gtfout of your head and make a website, get visitors, you probably wont make money the first many times but you're still far ahead of everyone else who is still thinking what it would be like to try and make money.

    A well timed article. Thank you
    I got sucked in by Twitter and compulsively tweeted. From my own mistakes I learned two lessons:

    1. Careful management of distractions can mean success or failure in most disciplines, more so in IM.
    2. Focussing on ONE method learned from BHW at any given time produces better results than a unfocussed and wild approach.

    ^^Yeah man, I'm sure people will appreciate that as well. Thanks for sharing your story.

    My mind is constantly working at warp speed and comming up with new ideas. The details are the problem. But also where the success lies. I dont think it would be as much of a problem if I had the money to outsource but cant seem to get to that point, on the right scale anyway.
    Do you mind PMing your solution since you didnt want to post?
