VERY motivated and achieved internet success, yet... Is this bad?

    I've been in the IM game for 4 years now (wow, that's a pretty long time now that I think about it!) and I need to let something off my mind.

    Over these past few months, I have finally understood the principle of making money online (Mainly because I began thinking like there's no box, which will take you beyond. It's so amazing...) It actually blows my mind that everywhere I go, everything I do; whether I'm starring at a pond, picking up trash, seeing things, witnessing- EVERYTHING from the moment that you and I are living, there was once money invested.


    For instance, you can be looking at a pond and realize that at one point, the government paid construction workers to make it. (Which is a means of making money.)

    Anyways, am I sounding a bit crazy?

    (I'm just letting you guys know how my mind works now compared to a few years ago.)

    ...And I think it's that time where I need a reality check. I'm getting to that point where I don't even socialize with girls as much, as in I have no desired to be a player or to chase them anymore. I'm even worried that if I fall for a girl, she'll either be a gold digger or I'll have what you call, "one it-is".


    I do have friends who are girls, but what I'm trying to say is, am I too addicted to all this IM? Is my mind way too wired? or am I just highly motivated?

    I hear stories like how Mark Zuckerberg doesn't even watch TV or waste time on little things like that because he prioritize his time, and I think it's so amazing and inspiring. In fact, I don't even own a HDTV anymore. I buy food that are already pre-made or just needs to be oven baked, and I skip certain school days just because the time it takes to get there. (essentially time = money.) But even then, he seems to have a good relationship with his now wife.


    I hate to hear it, but I can already see people telling me to have "balance". Does this mean I'm too addicted? Do I need to back off? Would love to hear some members' insight. I'm just worried about being way too addicted to this stuff money making stuff.


    Sorry if it's too long, I felt that I need to explain myself a bit. And no, I'm not weird or anything lol.





    Or maybe I am.

    Do what makes you happy.
    But also remember that what you have now (youth) won't always be there.

    To quote some guy somewhere: "wisdom's a gift but you'd trade it for youth."

    Rejoice in thy youth. That's another quote. I just remembered the guy's name who I think said it. Now I'll attempt to spell it: Eclesiastices. Nope. Not even close. But I won't look it up and run the risk of appearing to be more intelligent than I truly am. Pretentious, even... Nope, not me.

    Basically what I'm trying to say is, yeah - if you're into girls, go for girls. Life isn't all about money, but don't let some female distract you from your goals.

    Contradictory? Maybe. But, to dawn the dreaded term; balance.

    Dude you are not alone
    Even Ive started feeling the same and questioning myself whether if I am addicted or is it bad etc etc a few weeks ago
    But later i realised myself it isnt so
    I work 12-14 hours a day (no donkey work only smart work)
    Heck i dont even feel I am working. I feel I Am playing and that fetches me money. I am in love with what i am doing. I dont feel like watching tv,playing games, mignling with friends heck i dont even have social profiles. Yes u can say m antisocial
    I even feel y the heck shd we waste time in sleeping, eating, bathing etc..I just want to sit infront of pc and watch paypal flood with $

    But yes this is pure addiction to earn more and more but addiction will be two types..Good and bad
    Bad as u knw boozing doping etc etc that does nothing but only harms
    Good is what we are doing..It will get u money name fame and yes most imp chicks :p

    If you feel that this good addiction is bad then we wudnt have seen great names today like zuckerberg, gates, apple etc..They too ditched everything and concentrated and worked their asses out just for 1 thing that is $.

    So yes what we are addicted to is healthy addiction and dont bother about it. Just keep marching..But yes make sure you give some time towards your health like exsercising ..taking some regular breaks from prolong sessions at pc

    Happy earning :)

    Watching television is for sheeple. Stay away from the programming machine. COMPLETE waste of time.

    I don't have a TV, too. I would not call it an addiction, it is actually "dedication" to me.

    The people who are different from you will tell you that you are weird/wrong/unusual etc. Listen to your inner voice and follow it.

    I read an article somewhere that digged into their mindset. They weren't after the money at all (after a few hundred millions, I'm sure it gets old).

    Judging from everyone's comment, I guess I'm just a bit into IM.
