    I'm sure that we have all been through periods of extreme motivation and periods of extreme sloth.

    What do you use to keep you motivated? Muse, family, seeing the earnings rolling in, satisfied customers, internal clock that never stops ticking? what?

    Also, how many hours of solid work do you usually put in any given day / week?

    The fact that if I work hard now I can relax by the time I'm 30 with an awesome income (if I do well in IM)

    NOT money.

    If I wanted money I could be a stock trader.. But no, I do IM, because I love it.

    What motivates me is becoming the best at the one thing in IM I love most.. finding epic keywords haha..

    If we were all just doing this for money, then you can't be very happy, no matter how much you make.

    Even though there are tons of successful people who say "don't do it for the money. just do what you love blablabla" my main motivation is money.

    Crack is so old school. Real men lick toads


    I hope to be able to rank pages of my own eventually

    Your mother must be so proud

    So do you check your earnings every day and use that as motivation to get started?


    As are many of us on these forums, from what I can tell :)

    Hell yeah! I can digg it!

    I agree! Might as well put in the long hours when you are young so you can enjoy your time once you make it big.

    Great movie.

    Thats awesome, would you care to share any of your insights?


    Investing in some stock could be good to diversity the portfolio, its something that Im considering.


    Yeah I do too, i was wondering what do you do when you are in a procrastination period?

    Those are the keys to success. Loving what you do and finding a way to monetize it!

    For me, seeing internet forum threads where the OP takes the time to respond to each poster individually makes it all worth it.

    Determination. Once I start a project, I go hyperfocus. The thing with IM is that it's really easy to start too many projects.

    I sincerely wish I had your determination. You are absolutely right.

    All in a days work. I do appreciate it though and I wish you luck in your IM adventures.

    I bet once you get to a level where it is your primary source of income, it gets quite addicting. :)


    When you work hard, then you definitely deserve to reward yourself some.

    Real men like me smoke toads and lick crack at the same time.
