    Is it me or do I see a lot of methods on how to make money but each of those are useless because individuals cannot even take action and even if they do they never stick to it?

    I came to this reasoning when I realized that the hardest part of IM was not taking action, that was the easy part. It was sticking to it, staying motivated, accepting mistakes, and more mental hurdles.

    I just think that most people are more focused on the material aspect of success when it should be both or more concentrated on the mental aspect of success like motivation. We should have a section to share how some of us discipline ourselves.

    But I might be wrong so feel free to correct me. What do you think?

    Becoming successful is definitely all about having the right mental attitude. Took me forever to learn this but when I actually started working for hours on end, reading book about becoming successful, and sticking to it every day I finally started making money. No point in going into this business without fully committing.

    Roger that, think it's a lot to learn too.
    To some it's too daunting once they see what's involved.
    Time and time again I try to help friends in IM, web space or just general business start-up rules.

    No the thought is exactly right. Being an IMer doesn't mean that we don't have to discipline ourselves. besides there's alot of motivation required to stay consistent especially newbies.

    Yeah, it comes to belief and "buying in" your potential. Let's say you are writing a long sales copy. If you never made much money in IM you probably don't believe that the sales copy will make you much money. Therefore, it would be impossible for you to do a good job and spend a lot of time on it - your brain will literally not give you the ability to make it work. Every second that you spent on it, your brain would tell you that you are wasting your time and instead go do something else.

    OTOH, if you already had success in IM and already have 2k targeted visitors to your page, you would have no problem spending long hours writing the copy and putting a ton of effort in, because you know if you do so you will make thousand and thousands.

    That said, focusing on the wrong thing will still make you fail, regardless of how much belief you have. 99% of 'methods' on this forum aim to take advantage of temporary holes in the market that quickly get filled, bring no actual value and try to 'push'/force a product on to ignorant customers. Not only that, but those methods have a very, very low barrier to entry, which means that everyone with half a brain can do them. Soon enough, a million Filipino marketers start doing the method and now instead of ten people making 100k, a million people make $1 each.

    yepppp, most business can make good money but it's how you run it as opposed to the business.

    Masses = fingers in too many pies, jump around from one to another.

    Success = focus.
