    Why do 99% fail here? I mean common 100 $ a month is nothing some of you guys are investing 100 hrs a week into their bussunies and make 100$ a month. You just get ripped of by affiliate programms. Of course there're some good people who make some money but really why do the most of you fail.
    You invest 200 $ into SEO and countless hours of doing stuff just to make a profit from 100 $.

    I'm not trying to bring somebody down but some of you guys should really do something else like getting a real job or writing there own ebook.
    Let me say it like this your goal should be to make 100k a month not 100$ don't give up but just start thinking different.

    What is the reason for this post? Some people are happy making $100 a month and maybe that's all they are interested in making. At least they are trying. You are generalizing and making a very large accusation that 99% of people fail, here. Telling members they should get a real job when many come here to learn and better themselves is crappy. I guarantee you that anyone investing 100 hrs. a week into their business is not just making $100 a month, or will not be for long. I think you meant to come across as encouraging in this post (or I'd at least hope so), but you very much did not.

    your saying only 1% of people that try IM actually make it, is this a real statistic or just something you came up with yourself, with so many people failing in IM the internet is a awful big place.

    Edit: I see you said fail here.. That could be right.

    Actually those statistic 1-2% of the US is rich the other 98-99% is considered middle class or poor
    so if someone said that 1% of this forum is successful I wouldn't doubt it much.

    Guys,
    The point of this theard is to cheer up some people not make them go down. If you work 100hrs a month for 100$ god daym brother u gotta hustle more. Don't be happy with what you got keep fighting!! And I say 99% here are failing by investing there time right! Stop reading and start doing stuff

    Internet money are my hobby, I don't count them as real money :} So for me does not matter if I earn this month 10 or 1000$ . People fail everywhere also in real life, and when you look real , you will see that about (or less) 1% are rich in this world :}

    There is a huge different between being rich and making 100$ a month. That's just crazy your not even rich if you make 4k a month

    Some people treat IM like a business, some treat it like a side project, and some treat it like a hobby.

    Not everyone is in it for the same reasons, and there is nothing wrong with that.

    But your post is not about who is rich and who is not - it's about people failing. And some people would consider 4k a month to be very successful and not a failure at all. That is where you are wrong.

    I love people who just make statistics up and pass them off as fact. 99% of people who make statistics up do strange things to their pets.

    Don't go to crazy on the numbers man WTF is wrong with you. It's a fact that when you look at most journeys none of them are very successful ( you can deny it but just go there and read).

    I my self think that 4k are a lot of money I'm just saying that if you invest 100 hrs a month into IM and make 100$ just invest your time smarter.

    I see where this is going! This is going to be one of those start a riot on the OP Theards.

    You are the one making these numbers up, people are merely commenting on what you've already said. Don't start a post just throwing numbers and accusations around, not expecting anyone to make a comment on it. You are making bold accusations that 99% of people here only make $100 a month, spend $200 on SEO etc etc, when in actuality you have no idea what they make, how they invest their time, and what methods they invest in to try to make a profit.

    I'm merely telling you not to generalize an entire community and make up statistics when there's no way you could possibly know that information. No one is attacking you, just commenting on what you've already said.

    I'm not talking about the board in general. I'm just wondering why most guys in the journey section struggle so much.

    That's some sound advice... simple and to the point.

    If you wanted to make a post to "cheer" people up and motivate them to action, then it shouldn't have been so generalized. You point out what others seem to be doing wrong yet you have not given us proof/examples from your own experience to validate your statements.

    Exactly. I agree very much with OP. Many people here get excited hearing about people making 4,5, and even 6 figures per month and decide to try and make that online. A lot of people start getting discouraged if they don't see some results fast, which is wrong. If you follow any of those journey threads completely, you will see how slow progress usually is, but they eventually make it (not all), but the determined ones. Keep your head up and work smart.

    Because SUCCESS is a journey. Not a destination.
