    Hello BHW members!
    In this thread I will reveal some personal information on how I succeeded, why I was failing and what I did to change my failures.

    It's not a "step by step" method but if you read this thread I am confident that it will help you on many methods.

    *As I mentioned, I will reveal a lot of personal information of my life but I won't have a problem to do it for you guys. I see nothing wrong if you know some personal things for me as long as you don't know me in person. And even if you learn more about me you just know me as Blakester from BHW with a dog for an avatar :p *

    I believe that in order to solve a problem (the "cant make money" problem in this situation) we have to know THE REASONS of why the problem exists. Otherwise we can't solve it.
    Enough with the intro. Let's get this started.


    -----------------------------------------


    From my experience there are 2 huge reasons to fail.

    1) Weak/Poor Past of your life.
    2) Lack of action (that many times comes from the 1st reason)


    A couple of questions: Have you ever wondered how a friend of yours can spend so much money while you can't? How is he so lucky ALL THE TIME (like finding money on the street) while you can't? Have you ever been jealous of someone that could spend more money than you without caring and you had to count every penny? Why some stupid/bad guys that they care only their themselves have money and you that want to help other people and spend them on charity have $0?


    Let me tell you a little story:

    A simple little guy called Blakester was born in 1990. His family was really poor but they have a golden heart. A golden heart cant pay for the bills though. The child was raised with little simple things and never asked for more, but there were some things that drive him crazy. At a small age he started to envy his friends but he never understood that he was doing this.

    99% of the reasons that the parents were fighting because of no money. It's sad to see 2 people having great personalities to lose their interest and smile because of a poor life. I hated money and I hate money because they ruined many possible fantastic experiences of my life. Lack of money got my family sad for all these years. We lived in the streets, I saw really bad fights between family members for the no1 evil reason in earth money. Or better... Lack of money.

    The little guy decided to work to help them in a young age but still employers was taking advantage of him.

    When he was at school he never got a sandwich cause the price of 2 euros was EXTRAORDINARY for him. When his friends was buying Mc Donalds the Extra package with coca cola and stuff he was waiting his friends to finish their meal to go home and eat. Cause that way he could save the money. Spend 5 euros for a meal while he can save them and buy something that can last more? :O Those guys were spending too much for no reason right?

    But tomorrow they had the same money to spend again! The little guy hoped to be in their position and thought: "I wish I could be in their position". And that's where I lost.

    When you say to yourself: "Aw I wish I could be him I was born in the wrong life" you just approve the fact that you are not able to have a life like him. YOU ATTRACT NEGATIVITY AND YOU WILL GET MORE NEGATIVITY IN RETURN.

    That's the law of attraction. That's why your friend can spend and spend and spend again. And there is a cycle of spending and getting money back. They know that tomorrow will have money and they are not afraid to spend. That creates positive energy and attracts positive energy.


    What happened to me was that I only learnt to live the poor life from the day I was born. I accepted the fact that I can't have a rich and better life by thinking "why cant I have his life" and getting jealous.

    I "woke up" from this situation when a friend of mine recently told me when I was talking about a guy with an iPhone "man you talk with hate why? Because he has more than you?" I couldnt believe that I was actually doing that. I couldnt believe/see it.

    And he was right. Why do I b1tch about not having enough? I should stfu and find a way. I thank my friend for opening my eyes.



    WHAT YOU CAN DO TO STOP FAILS:

    As I said negativity brings negativity. Think about someone you love and would like to help. If there is nobody think about yourself. The things you wanna do. Bungee Jumping? Living alone with your dog in your own house? Charity? Close your eyes and think how life will be if you can do all the things you love WITHOUT THE "I CANT CAUSE I HAVE NO MONEY" part. For just one moment visualize that you live without money to be a problem.

    Relax and feel accomplished. Set the goals and see them.

    Stop thinking that there you were born this way to have no money. Even if someone was born rich this doesnt mean that you cant be rich. It may takes more action but you can definitely can.

    Thats what I did and I saw tremendous changes in my life. When I made my first money online my feelings changed.
    I was wondering "why does the universe hate me? what did i do wrong?" but now I understand a basic thing.

    No Universe hates you. No god/upper power hates you. You just feed it with negativity and that's what you get in return.
    I don't blame you though cause there must be a reason for this.

    I told you my reason. Maybe you ve got the same reason. Maybe not. My aim was to open your eyes and find your own reason (I have a feeling that 90% of the people will have the same reason that make them fail as mine - thats why I decided to reveal things for you, to help)

    Now that you found the reason, change it. It's easier with your eyes open. Wake up and take action. Start believing.
    When you see your first success and your feelings will become positive you will see more success in the future.

    You will attract success. You will think different.



    P.S: Some people will think that I am saying stupid things about the law of attraction and stuff. This is a personal story of mine that worked and works every day.


    Change your inner belief - take action - fail - take action - fail - take action - success - repeat and scale it up - INVEST, GET MORE MONEY, HELP PEOPLE, LOVE LIFE, SPEND ON CHARITIES - REPEAT FROM STEP 2


    Good luck.
    Blakester

    I am very happy for you. Hating is not good at all. Your story reminds me the elephants in india :)

    YOU ATTRACT NEGATIVITY AND YOU WILL GET MORE NEGATIVITY IN RETURN.

    This is soooooo true!!!

    I also forgot to mention something important. Many people are in doubt in Internet can make them money.
    I can highly assure you that Internet is the only way to make more than a 9-5 slavery.

    You are the master of yourself and the one possible for your actions.

    Don't forget that there are worse situations. There are countries that dont even have internet.
    If you do have though... then you are fortunate.

    Make money from it :)

    Damn - I just read this entire thing, and I can tell it was written out of a place of passion, honesty and experience.

    I think people underestimate the power of positive thinking, but it's true. If you decided to skip what is written above because it seems like babble, or it seems like it's too long don't. It's actually a very positive message and we all need this reinforced sometimes.

    No disrespect to women - but sometime we act like little girls and omit negative energy. When we see a website out rank us, we are pissed off and jealous. When a chick sees another hot chick, they get angry and jealous and talk bad about her. When a man see's another man that has more muscles, is funnier, or has more friends...we try harder. BINGO! So when you see a competitor don't worry about sabotaging, feel jealous, or defeated....work smarter and harder. There is no reason you can't have the same success.

    Internet marketing doesn't fail - people just quit right before they make it. If you see someone here making $100/day, read through their posts and you will quickly see - you are just as smart as they are. Or if you are not, then say to yourself, I'm going to work 10 times harder then they do, to even the playing field, either way you can achieve the same success.

    Thanks Op - just the positive pick me up for someone who had a super shitty day at a super shitty 9-5 (more like 7 to 7) job he plans to be quitting soon.

    It is a painful truth that most of the people posting on here how to make money must live like this forever, until they either get smart (pun intended) or die trying.

    I'll be short: I was in your situation too, until recently, when I started getting some more $.

    It's funny that you don't care about them anymore and you don't think about other rich people or envy them anymore because you are also in that position.

    I guess that when you step higher in the "hierarchy" you just don't see money as a big deal anymore.

    I sincerely read every word you said because "The child was raised with little simple things and never asked for more" is true for me too.

    Respect,
    Florin

    I agree totally with you about the thoughts becoming actions and how many people don't even realize they're always negative. I have my negative days but I try and snap myself out of it, takes more work than you think to catch your thoughts and reverse them. I would say that is one of the biggest reasons people fail is being stuck in a mindset they don't realize because well, they're stuck in it. BUT you can't just think positive thoughts you have to act on them and make things happen also.

    What a timely post. I've actually been studying the Law of Attraction lately and applying it to my life. It's the cornerstone off all successful people and applies to everything in life not only money. I'd also recommend keeping a gratitude journal that you write in daily. Make it a habit, I started yesterday and am gonna write in it every night before bed. Even write simple things too, like the internet. We take it for granted but it isn't available to everybody like blakester said before. Writing these things down keeps your mood positive so that you can apply your energy to things that benefit you. Studies have even shown that gratitude journals increase your life expectancy.
    Great post Blakester, even tho I've been studying this and applying it these points can't be driven in enough.

    Thank you for creating this thread and giving us your experience to turn our Negative thoughts into positive. Really motivated and yes. NEVER GIVE UP. Just start doing hard work today and it will pay-off.. just don't wait for things to start it by itself. i was actually doing that.. was waiting for getting free time from my 9-6 job so that i can put some time into my own IM business to earn more so that i can leave this s*it 9-5 job. But now i don't want to wait anymore.. not for money.. not for anything..

    Thanks a Tons for driving us to Positiveness via your own experience.

    That was a very helpful post OP! You were able to bring back the fire of many individuals in their pursuits thru online marketing. In addition, this post reminds me to never stop in leaning on the positive side where things are running smoothly. Great job!

    Hello Florin! I agree with everything you said except something that I feel the need to explain :)

    Well the reason I didn't care about them anymore was not that I was in the same "richer" position like they were. It took me only around 1-2 days to stop hating them cause the hard thing that my friend told me snapped my mind out of it.

    I say hard cause I couldnt believe that I talked with jealousy about someone because it's not my nature to hate so I was like "I need to fix this immediately that's not me".


    The wrong thing I used to do was something like this:

    You know I've seen a lot of guys spending $300-$400 in one night on drinks only and I was always getting mad and thought: "Why does he use the money this way? Seriously? Imagine all these things he could do with $400. He could do SO MANY THINGS BETTER than wasting on drinks, giving them on charities or even INVEST THEM AND MAKE MORE! Oh my god why didnt he invest the money he could make so much more easier. This stupid guy if only I had the money I could usem the better...."

    That was my huge fail. I called him stupid because I could have thought a million ways to invest them and make more while he was spending it for no reason.

    So what If I could use the money in a better way? I was getting mad because (according to me) a stupid guy had some much potential and threw it away but IF I WAS THE ONE that controlled the money I could make the right decisions.

    But again that is the worst thing you can do. I realized that I shouldnt care and he was HIS money and he can do whatever he wants with it. He could even burn them. And of course I should not call him idiot for doing that. It's his choice why the f@ck should I care or even dislike him?

    If I wanted to prove that I can do more with the money I should shut up, make some money and then do what I want I with it.

    wow awesome thread indeed! I was born in 1990 as well! =)

    Btw last night at work I realized how fortunate I'm for knowing about internet marketing, for having some much knowledge in some many different things. Even though my earnings are nothing to be impress about, I know and believe that pretty soon those earnings will become my success and tool to help my parents and others relatives/people in need! At times I wish sleeping wasn't necessary, so that I could work on my projects 15+ hours each day, but soon my online earnings will be enough to quit my 5 hours job lol and focused 100% on my path to success. Thanks for this thread and hope your earnings multiply by a thousand. Have a good day!

    Reading "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne and then "Living The Law Of Attraction" by Jack Canfield both explain how to find the right mindset for anything. You can pick them up each day and just read a page to get some inspiration for that day if you dont have much time. Just remember "like attracts like".....so if your head is full of negativity and woes, more will come. You will attract them.

    So forget things like "I want to make $100 by next week". The universe delivers what you ask for. It leaves you "wanting" because you asked for that. So try and train the mindset to belive you "will have" $100 next week. Imagine what you will be doing with that $100. Daydream of spending the $100 as though you already have it. Daydream of handing that money over for a new phone or whatever it is and then imagine you calling someone on that phone. So instead of "wanting" that $100 in your mind..you are now feeling the benefits of already having it. Then thats how the Law Of Attraction works....its thinks you have this phone or whatever it is and moves in mysterious ways to deliver it.

    Hi Blakester,
    Yes I agree with your experience and everyone's experience is unique as they are unique also. Two years and some months ago I experienced a failed offline business. At the end days of this business I was experiencing huge amounts of negativity and friction from other people and myself. Felt that I had a sign on my back that said, "Kick me". I closed my business and then went through the process of selling pieces of the business for pennies on the dollar and having difficult conversations with the Bank. I thought I was at a personal record low but, this was the beginning. Next came the hostile wife that wanted divorce and of course money and material items. I felt unworthy and a complete failure.
    Then something happened to me. One day at a public library I was on the internet. In hindsight, I believe I was given an opportunity. On the internet I came across the name, Napoleon Hill, and I felt immediate relaxation from what I was reading. I immediately ask the librarian to help me track down his two books but only one was available. It was his, "Think and Grow Rich". I had the book for three weeks and read it everyday and night. I wasn't watching TV nor reading newspapers nor anything else. All I can attest to is that I felt positive self affirmation and needed to take action. I wasn't even aware of Internet Marketing but, that was about to change. On a certain day, I do not remember what I typed into the search engine. What I discovered was BHW. WOW! The amount of information blew me away. I felt positive and felt that what I previously experienced was of purpose to push me in this direction or reveal this opportunity. Something else happened. I came across a thread by a BHW member named Yukinari84. This was my first day on BHW and I wasn't even registered. Something ignited in my brain and core. I read all of Yukinari84's posts and threads. Thus I became aware of affiliate marketing. I did more research on the internet and came across clickbank. Eureka! The wet blanket of disparaging thoughts and darkness was lifted. So..... I took massive action and never doubted... NEVER. I began to make sales and of course had many mistakes but, I learned from these. I kept everything simple and manual. I began all this from the public library. I did it and so can other people. LOL, I wrote more than I expected to. I just felt a desire to contribute to the OP's thread.

    Sounds like a much simplified version of the Cognitive side of Cognitive Behavioural therapy.

    I'd look into it if anyone here has more than a passing interest in psychology, as it's interesting, and is also a preferred treatment for many of the more common mental complications (depression, anxiety, etc.)

    I would have to say that the 'law of attraction' will not work in all cases, as is advertised... It's quite oversimplified. If someone does actually have abnormal psychology of some kind, giving them false promises like 'just think positive' will generally lead them to disappointment when it inevitably fails due to unaccounted for complications like panic attacks, abysmal serotonin levels, social anxiety etc.

    Personally, I am friends with several (at least 3) people who have serotonin deficiencies, who are really not capable of thinking positively without antidepressants of some kind (or intensive therapy) for whatever reason, not to mention bi-polar or manic people for whom thinking positively is precisely the problem..

    I guess I'm saying that though I agree with this as a philosophy, I would encourage a more open minded approach to this, as many people need more than simply thinking positively in order to achieve an increase in productivity and overall satisfaction.

    Look up CBT, it's pretty cool.
