Change the way you are thinking. Everything IS going RIGHT for you. Be positive and things will work out for you. You may think your poor or struggling with certain aspects of your life, but i can guarantee that someone else in the world is doing it a lot tougher than you. You have a computer, they don't. Be grateful for what you have and cherish every day. Nothing comes easy in life, you have to work for it. When you want something as bad as you need to survive you will get it. You will be successful at anything you attempt if you keep your mind strong. Its a mind game. Most people give up after one set back. You could try 500 times to do something and fail but all it takes is one time to be able to be successful. One of my favorite quotes is "you only have failed if you have given up" This is true. Your friends or family could tell you over and over to get a "real" job and that IM is not a job. Anyone in this business knows it is a real job and there is plenty of money to be made if you want it bad enough. Be strong, believe in yourself and go make something of yourself. Show your friends and family who you can be when you set your mind to something. While they are working their 9-5 earning minimal money you will be earning $xxxx a day. Never Give up and just keep moving forward no matter what gets in your way.
