    yet again i failed..
    i give money to one guy to provide me some CPA leads, he promised that they will be legit but today my account was suspended :\ I know that sounded to good to be true - he would double my money and i would just sit back and relax but how could i know, people on odesk and freelancer are doing it and other people recommended him to me .. I wrote him but he didn't answer.. but i still have hope that he will be honest person and do the job( yeah maybe that sounds naive )
    My last money down the drain but i should know better..

    The Lessons learned..

    Nothing good comes easy and IM is not for me!

    "Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that's where you will find success."
    - Thomas J. Watson

    listen...don't stop trying just because you fail the 1st time. Most of us do not succeed the first time we try. Secondly, if you are not patient, then you are not suitable for IM. As for the lost money, if you paid him via paypal, just file a claim so that paypal can hopefully help you get back the money.

    Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times in making the incandescent light bulb. But that gave him 10,000 ways it wouldn't work. He went on to discover how it would work. The story is that he didn't quit. Quitters never win, and winners never quit. That is the only differene.

    Don't give up - I have been here years and dabble here and there with some methods I see on here and that taste of failure doesn't get any better. To date, I have about $3 in my adsense account and something stupid like 40c in a CPA account.

    Laugh, learn and move on.

    Don't forget that old saying "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger".

    Believe it or not, thats up to you - life isn't worth living if you don't hit some pot holes on the way through!

    The only failures are quitters. If you give up, then yes, you have failed. But if you push forward and learn from your MISTAKES then you will succeed. :D

    You didn't know and you tried.

    I'm not a fan of quitters because I have failed more than you ever will I am sure but I always got back up.

    I also fell for the "sure thing" and "too good to be true" stuff as have multitudes of others but I dusted myself off from making those mistakes, learned from them and moved on to trying other things.

    My work schedule is no less than 50% testing to see what works these days and you know what? I fail more than 60% of the time when I do that testing. I consider that a good thing as that shows me what not to do to be profitable on line and for successful SEO.

    Failing is educational... I don't care what anyone says otherwise.

    You did something stupid, and now you've learned your lesson. Now instead of crying in threads, pick yourself up and start working on something else. Opening threads about how you lost money achieves nothing, never cry over money because it'll sure as shit never cry for you.

    Tip -
    Never pay someone for leads, not 5 leads or 500,000 leads, they can promise you that if they are not legit leads they will give you the beating heart right out of their chest. 99.99% of the time the leads are bad.


    IM Tip -
    CPA isn't the only way of making money
    AdSense isn't the only way of making money

    Also, if all else fails you can always be a middle man.

    A few movies you could watch if you lose faith -
    "Middle Men" - was made by the owners of EPassPorte back in 2010 I think. It's about payment processors. Look it up.
    "The Social Network" - Facebook.

    As the word stands true, "Infinity" - Limitless.
