    So like the title says what keeps you motivated to work those long hours day in and day out to get that site ranked number 1 for that big keyword? My motivation comes from being able to help my family live a bit more comfortably and me being able to travel around the world. So far I have lived in Bangkok, Toronto, Windsor (Canada) Manila, Buenos Aires, Vina Del Mar (Chile), Malta, Sweden and in every single place I party'd hard! Whenever I feel unmotivated I sort myself by thinking of my family and looking at a video like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOS0IoY2tKg

    Next destination to live in for me I think is Florianopolis, Brazil or Medellin, Colombia! See you there? I will be the guy at the VIP table waving you over. :cool:

    It's fun ! Plain and simply as that. If it wasn't I'd be doing something else.

    Hi

    Not maxing it like the OP, he seems to be living the dream - or my dream at least as I have always wanted to live in different counties for a year or so.

    I set goals and always bite off more than I can chew for example I just got a brand new 120d BMW Msport- not the best BMW granted but best I have ever had.

    Now going on cruise in december with wife and kids - cost a shit load and think I have sorted that.

    So the motivation comes from shitting my panties all the time thinking I will never reach the next goal.

    I think we get used to not dong the 9 to 5 and becomes the norm, so that cant be a motivation for me, I think its achieving the next goal that seems just too much to deal with...

    The BMW 120d is a nice car and the sport is even nicer I can imagine. I guess when you have the pressure on you is when you perform the best... like the saying goes: after a lot of pressure a diamond will form.
