    You know back in the day I once worked hard for money. I worked hard at a pizza shop on the regular 9am to 5pm. Soon enough the pizza joint shut down and I lost my job. Then I was forced to live on the street for nearly three years. During that three years I learned something that totally changed my life.

    During that time I was totally broke, on the street begging for money. I would get out there and wear my ragged clothes and have my cup ready for passerby's to give me change. I can tell you one thing about begging, that the money always came. THE MONEY ALWAYS CAME! Sometimes I would get $100 for the week and sometimes I would get $500.

    It made me think, why did I work so hard for my money when everyone just gives it away so easily?

    It really truly made me feel like I was in that moment truly being who I was as a person. It really helped me understand the meaning of the saying "go with the flow". I was for the first time in my life making a living easy and effortlessly.

    I certainly don't live like that now but It was really an eye opener for me, and I felt that it would be an eye opener for someone on this forum.

    I'm not really sure what you're getting at.

    Unfortunately, if I "went with the flow" in my internet marketing, I probably wouldn't get anything done. Hah.

    If you wouldn't get anything done your forcing it to happen. What i'm saying is that your success is not natural and it will not last. Just how I ended up losing my job.

    Yeah my cousin went with the flow on making money, the guy is now in jail for murder because he thought that killing 4 people in their home and taking the money they had in their wallets would get him some good crack.

    How can you blame him? That was who he was, a murderer who kills others for crack. For him it was easy and effortless, since he was being true to himself.

    Thats not going with the flow, thats losing your shit! Seriously though that must have taken its toll on you and your family. My uncle was jailed for murder over an argument about football/soccer in a nightclub. Was a nightmare for the family with all the attention it received locally. Hope you and your family are coping well.

    I don't think I agree. We humans have a gift called mind, therefore we can alternate our destiny by making cautious decisions. That`s why we rule this planet.

    Sorry, but someone who thinks poncing off everyone else's hard work is an enlightened example of making a living is very much mistaken.

    The key line here is how easy people give their money away, that's what you should focus at. I remember how I started IM, I was promoting on facebook some PIN submits (they are usually used for locking some content, I didn't lock anything). There were sever funny ones, like "Test your IQ", "Spin the wheel", but the one that surprised me the most was "Find out when you're going to die".
    Yes, people paid about $7/week so they could receive an answer from a mobile app that was going to tell them when they'd die. That's how easy people gave out their money.

    There is no going with he flow when it comes to earning money, I think maybe waht you are getting at more is finding what you enjoy doing - then earning money is a lot easier, even when you are working f****** hard doing it!

    But the recurring them is hard work for sure - it doesnt matter waht you are doing or how you earn your money, you need to be willing to work hard.

    Im homeless at the moment. Live in my car. Im lucky enough to have a gym membership.

    Im also lucky in the fact that i can always get a job. Ive had more jobs than how old i am. And then some. Its really easy as long as i get to the interview process.

    I recently got a job at a dingy motel. I make like 8 an hour.

    But there aee tons of peopke here that live at the motel. Some have jobs.. some dont. The ines that dont hook or beg for money. Both types make way more than me.

    I dunno thus old man who is homeless begs a couple miles away from here and lives more confortable than me.

    Im not saying i couldnt do it... but it would be very hard for me to. I rather beg people for knowledge, then use it to make my own money.

    I think what you mean is do something you like to do because from what you've described I should be able to sit here and make money playing games and looking at pictures all day. But if you don't have anything that you like to do that will make you good money, then fake it till you make it. Learn to love it or you won't succeed to your potential.

    Going with the flow won't cut it if your main motivation is to make it big in this industry.

    I'm the exact opposite and I never go with the flow. I decide to make things happen and not wait it out if there's a problem.

    But if it works for you and your lifestyle then I wish you all the best.. But for me, I can never settle for mediocraty.
