I noticed that there are all these $100/day methods out there which is cool and all. But some may take them literally and be discouraged when they do not see the results of $100/day immediately. I'd just like to share how my thinking was when I first started IMing with more achievable goals and maybe it might simplify and help others set achievable goals and reach benchmarks. Initially I fell for the $100/day methods and thought they where all full of crap because the $100/day did not come so easy. But then I started to set goals based off of what I wanted. This made goals seem easy to achieve and gave me momentum every time I reached one of them. Example: First I wanted a new custom surfboard - $600 Now if I could just make $20/day x 30 I'd have $600 for the month. $20 a day is much easier to achieve than $100/day. Now you might think "big whoop $600 for a surf board." But say you want a BMW or Mercedes (I went for a quad cab tundra, but seems like everyone likes luxury cars on this forum) $40,000 - $50,000 car. The payments would be roughly $600-$700/month depends on your interest rate. So you see now just making $20-$25/day you can get a luxury car. Naturally you will get better at what you do and you can aim for $35/day. That would give you $1050 a month. There are houses for sale in Vegas for $125,000 which the mortgage payment would be roughly $1000/month. So for making only $35/day you could get something worth $125,000 now. Slowly increase your goals and meet them. Feeling good and gaining momentum along the way. Eventually reaching and surpassing the $100/day mark will surely come. I just wanted to share my way of thinking and to offer some encouragement to those that fall short of the $100/day benchmark set by many tutorials. Set small achievable goals so you won't get discouraged and you can still live good and feel good about what you're doing.
