    today is day forty something. this probably has nothing to do with seo, but i wan't to know where you guys find your inspiration to get the work done? i find it in knowing i'm creating my own contents, and building my website, and of course the money that might come later on.

    Well, I find the motivation on my problems & issues that I have to deal with.
    Usually they make me nervous & stress me out , but I know that if I keep working , one day I won't have to deal with them.

    I also watch autobiographic & inspirational movies every 2 - 3 weeks just to keep me feel ambitious enough as to get things done in time.
    I'd recommend you watching "The Billionaire" it's a Thai Movie.

    Also , these movies : "The Pursuit of Happyness" , "Seven Pounds" , "North Country" , "Pay it Forward", "The Bucket List", "Saving Private Ryan" :)

    These movies changed my perspective on many aspects, they will help you out too if you haven't watched them yet !
    But it's always much better to find the motivation on your own problems , since "having to deal with a problem" would motivate you more than "watching a Will Smith Movie" :)

    Well at least , that's for me mate !
    Sincerely, Don.

    Money... It drives me. Seriously. Think about it...

    Think about the things that you can buy if you have so much money. Every time I pause for a while and think about the clothes that I want, the cars, my own condo etc. I suddenly have an adrenaline rush. I get back to work.

    Just think about MONEY and HOW MUCH YOU WANT IT. You'll be alright. ;)

    I just ask myself, "Do you really want to keep doing this (the job I am currently employed at) or do you want something better?" That motivates me to work harder.

    Inspiration for everybody is different, for most people if things aint working out it can really be a terrible experience and boredom will set in.

    yeah, my motivation is paying my mortgage and all the costs that involve owning a home...electric, phone, gas, internet, car payment...etc...

    i have a daughter and wife and i have to support them too, so this is great motivation for me...its all about putting food on the table...

    no money, no food for my family...

    if your single, then these are not great motivations for you, but if you ever want these things in your life, then your dream of wanting these things might motivate you...

    For me, I tried to get into the habits of just doing it anyway. And obviously it serves me well until now. And it doesn't give me excused to watch videos every so often unless I want it.

    Shift your focus to something else. Work on something, anything, and make progress. That will make you feel better.

    It's hard to feel bad if you fill your days with accomplishments and really make progress.

    Feeling that fat stack in my pocket is all I need to keep me motivated.

    Your name is kind of ironic.

    Anyway, I keep motivation with a black background on my laptop with large white text that shows how much I owe my parents. And that's just the monetary amount....

    I'm working a 4-to-1'er and I have to put up with butthead managers all night long. I never fail to have a less-than-good day, so my motivations come from knowing if I'm successful I'll be able to get past this, and that if I fail I still have a decent job to fall back on. I might hate it, but I'm happy to have it.

    To my Family..:)

    I just always think that they need a better life and they need me to get that dream.
    I'm the bread winner of the family and I always get motivated every time I think about their future.
