    So you may have read about my financial IM collapse last month, which can be seen here -
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...f-ck-my-life-all-earnings-gone-im-ruined.html.

    At the time I was devastated, as all my earnings had vanished overnight, the run was over and I was ruined - or so I thought.

    After I posted the thread I took a day off to just relax and to try and not think about it. I then came back the next day and started the rebuilding process all over again, working hard and investing some income I had previously saved. I looked to diversify a bit more, whilst still building on my niche's I was familiar with, in an attempt to gain a more well-rounded income.

    In this last month things have been going excellently, far exceeding any expectation I had hoped for. I have exhibited strong growth and even have had the best week EVER in IM earnings, smashing any previous personal records that have stood!

    WHY AM I TELLING YOU THIS?!
    -This is more than just some self glorifying boast of a thread.
    -This thread is to say:

    1) Don't ever give up. Even if you feel like your world has crashed down around you, it does not mean it is the end. Keep working hard and pick yourself up when you fall, if you can do this- the chances of achieving future success improve significantly.

    2) Thank you BHW community. The responses I received were incredible. Everyone who left positive and inspiring/motivational comments played a significant part in my rebuilding process, and I sincerely thank you for that. It would have been easy to slate me for whining, but you didn't- and I appreciate that so much.

    If anyone ever suffers failure and needs inspiration to pick themselves back up, I highly recommend reading the responses by the members on my thread; they are incredibly motivating and inspiring, one could not ask for more.

    Once again thank you BHW, as the members who took the time to comment and help lift my spirits have contributed strongly to me rebuilding my earnings once more.

    Peace.

    Thanks for the inspiration man, you see I never really had an income from IMing yet and hopefully what I am doing in the next few months will help me accumulate some money.

    Really glad to hear that =) Yeah sometimes all it takes is some kind words from the community to help keep you motivated & moving forward... that's the key to success and what separates the winners from the losers in the IM game (and it applies universally to anything, really). Anyways, congrats on getting back on track, keep killing it!

    It's good to hear that things are going great for you. Sometimes all you have is hope.

    I'm happy to see you're back to the top. They can crush you, but as long as you have the method to rebuilt, their crushing is worthless.

    Yeah, one of the hardest things is finding the motivation to do it all again.

    So you are back with 5 figure income? That's a really good news. The best thing is you have done it in just one month.

    Now just imagine that if you worked hard in same way till next 6 months then how much you will earn!

    Good job, keep it up; don't stop!!

    4 figure in one month is also awesome. Soon you will be banking 5 and then 6 figures :)

    Haha, I doubt I will ever hit that amount. I only do this part time.

    Very inspiring thread. Its a real shithouse when one of your income streams gets blasted into Oblivion. Shows noobs and the like that a Plan B should also be in place to take over, in case Plan A has been closed off unexpectedly.

    Or if you have no plan B, to make damn sure that you will work hard to regain your lost income.
