    ....until you realize one crucial thing:

    This forum is bursting at the seams with people on the lookout
    for that ONE magical venture/project that will turn it around for
    them and enable them to earn a full time income.

    Guess what? That project doesn't exist. The magic formula for
    IM success can never, ever, ever be found in any venture or
    project, because in order to succeed with anything, there has
    to be a foundation for success within.

    You can keep trying method after method, but no matter how
    clever and powerful they are, THEY WILL GUARANTEED FAIL
    YOU unless you make a change within yourself.

    Once you make that change, it won't matter that much what
    IM venture you pick, because, as if by magic, things will fall
    into place for you, and you will actually succeed with it.

    This is not wish-washy New Age talk, by the way. Study
    anything scientific about your subconscious mind, and you will
    find that we are slaves to it. We all have internal caps on what
    we allow ourselves to make. For some, it's 10 million a year.
    For others, it's 10 cents a day.

    Until you bust through whatever your internal cap is, all your
    marketing efforts will seem like a skipping record.

    How do you bust through it? I don't have the answer, because
    we're all different. One method may work for me, while it doesn't
    for you, and vice versa.

    But please, do yourself a favor - if you've been in a long time
    pattern of trying one thing after the next with very similar
    (lackluster) results, spend your energy on a program that helps
    you bust through your internal limits instead.

    It could be a program on self confidence, Law of attraction,
    procrastination, etc - it doesn't matter, as long as it feels like
    a good fit for you.

    I happen to have gone through exactly what I just described
    above myself. Up until a year ago, I had been struggling for
    years to make a dime online, and within a few weeks of doing
    "inner work", money started coming out of the woodwork.
    Since then, it's been a very comfortable ride for me.

    But you have to take action on it - don't just get inspired, and
    then move on to the next IM project. Do something right now.

    Very true but unfortunately many/most people will never grasp this concept both in internet marketing and the rest of life!

    Yep, you are so right. I was one of them for most of my life. Just grateful that I finally "woke up".

    Eye, post shaped like poem verses.

    Seriously, go away you damn shrink and take your words with you.
    You might also be Satan.

    Definitely part of what hinders me is the idea of the burden of success itself.

    - Having to redo taxes/finances and make sure it's perfectly accurate.
    - Scaling up to the point where there is legitimate risk involved with the possibility of legitimate reward.
    - Being responsible with the newfound success and not squandering it; discipline.
    - Accepting an increasing target on my back
    - Finding increasingly efficient ways to speed up the tedious aspects of my work.

    Success is stressful and almost a job in and of itself...But the alternative to success is just as troublesome

    You get to pick which alternative to go with. You can live the rest of your life making excuses/living in fear, or you can get on the horse right now.

    The most unsexy and highly proven methods of success: Consistency and persistence. The reason nobody does either, although proven to succeed, is because of the requirement of self-responsibility.

    Until a person grasps the concept that they alone are responsible for their own outcomes in life, no theory, or product will work in IM.

    Great reminder gr8tocre8!

    Amen to that CEPI! One thing I found to be profoundly powerful in that regard is Simpleology (simpleology.com). It's a free online interface that turns list-making and organizing into a very simple and powerful art form. It makes it just about as easy as it's going to get to be disciplined.
