    I sometimes have trouble at this lol. I end up thinking of other ways to make money when the first project isn't even completed

    Well Said man, good motivation ... I agree that staying focusing on anything untill its done is the only way to success. Actually Success is a thing merely seen by only few and masses only desire and those few know what it takes. But as my understanding to become successful you have to see it happening before it actually does.

    Giving up is not an option for successful people like Will Smith said "If you go on treadmill with me, there is only two things happen, either you loose, or I DIE ON THAT TREADMILL, PERIOD"

    well its kind of journey to the star, and for me its better to having one little step, then everytime we see another shiny star, but end up in a same place. I know its not easy to stay focus and its really hard when we realize that we just get a little step mean while we see other shiny star out there. Congrate OP!

    Being focused is the most important part to become successful at both SEO and IM. If you leave it, everything is gone. Whatever hard work you have done so far are of no value. There is one quotation which I keep remembering always and it works as a motivation to me-

    "It does not matter how slow you go, as long as you don't stop".

    Couldn't agree more.
    While the world's running in circles not having a clue what it wants, we'll be right here....slowly but surely collecting & polishing our stars. It can't shine without some elbow grease!

    The take away for me here is that people who sell you "golden bullet" solutions are full of shit.

    Success takes hard work - at least at the start
    If some guy was really coining $11,000 a day from a push button tool
    Why hasn't he just got 20 of them on servers making him 6 million dollars a month?
    Why is he selling it on some website that looks like it was created by a retard.

    Wouldn't he be better off just running more instances of his super-dooper software?

    People that start a presentation with:
    "Are you sick of Gugu's?" - are nearly always selling guru voodoo shit themselves

    When they say;
    "Why am I giving this software away? Becauae I really want to help/decided to pay it forward/I've earned enough" or whatever are also 100% of the time full of shit.

    Sure there are more effective ways of doing things, ways to get better value for your time and cash. But push button wins are a fallacy.

    I have to agree with you, SEO indeed is a slow time consuming process given that you are pursuing white hat techniques.

    Nice post OP - it reminds me of the saying that the tortoise always wins the race - but also nothing wrong with a bit of churn and burn while you are waiting IMO :p

    Great thought, OP. SEO does take a lot of time - keep sticking with it is the best way to do, I think. We cannot afford not to be on page 1 or #1 of Google.
