    I am aware of the fact that I am inviting wrath of Blackhatters as I create this thread. But, I am least bothered about the backlash. Recently, there has been an upsurge of "I Quit" threads and it has certainly forced me to think that should these people really quit. Upon deep analysis last night, I came on a conclusion that these guys should actually quit. Sounds Insane? Carry on reading.

    Are you planning to quit? I will tell you why you should quit.

    1) Better Prospects: If you have been slogging your ass for past many years, and still wondering how to earn few dollars daily, then I must say friend, You Must Quit. Let's accept it, if you were serious and worked hard towards your goal, then you would have been extremely successful by now. It's because of your casual and lackadaisical approach that you're here starting, "I Quit" threads. I am being blunt here because there is no point in doing something where you are constantly failing. As Sir Einstein said, "Insanity: It is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results". Since, you're not ready to mend your ways, then I would suggest you to look for better prospects. Maybe, you can switch over to another business/job. At the end of day, all that matters is money and success. Sticking to same thing and hoping against hope to get a magic wand which will help you succeed sounds insane to me.

    2) You Keep Cribbing: I come across a large number of people who keep cribbing about their problems. Whomsoever they meet, their sad and depressing story begins. I am here to tell you that stop doing that and stop spoiling your life. You're meant to do greater things. Either stop cribbing completely and focus on your goal or quit and move on. While you're telling your sad story to someone, you're actually affecting his positive mindset. You're creating a doubt in his mind. You're giving him reasons to Quit. Stop it right-away.

    3) You don't believe in yourself: No one can teach you how to believe in yourself. You have to do this on your own. One of the most important attributes of successful people is that they have strong faith and belief upon their self. They listen to everyone but do what they feel is right. If you take the nagging of your parents/friends too seriously, then I must say friend, You Must Quit. Get an idea, make a goal, formulate a plan, and then give all that you have in your arsenal. If you start moving on a path, don't have any doubts where it will lead because you've already chosen it. If you're shaken by stupid talks of naysayers, then no matter what you do, you'll never succeed.

    4) You're not Passionate:
    If you're not passionate, then no matter how much you try, you will not succeed. Stop wasting time and do something which makes you truly happy. Just because your friend is making $$$$ through a particular method doesn't mean that you should also do the same thing. If doesn't please you, then why should you force yourself to do that thing. We live in a fucked up world. There's already lots of problems in our life and above that you choose to do something which doesn't interests you, then your life will be worse than hell. I came across a guy few days back. He said, " Although I don't like Internet Marketing, but since I have to make lots of money in order to prove my parents that I am grown up, so I will remain in this field.". I was appalled listening to his statement. If you're working in a field for proving someone, then my friend you're on a wrong track. All I want to say is that either develop passion for the task you've been working upon or simply quit and move on.

    5) You're mad about Success: Last but not the least, you must quit if you're mad about success. If your ultimate aim is only to attain success, then all your efforts are futile. I have always believed that success or failure are irrelevant because these are just one of the many states of our mind. Your main aim in life should be to live a quality and happy life which is sans tension and worries. Let's accept a brutal fact, if you're mad about success, then you can never live a happy life. Common man... I know that Eric Thomas says, "You should want success as bad as you want to breathe". But, I will say you that please don't be mad about success. You must also spend time with your family and friends. Success is a subjective term. Create your own definition for success. A definition, which includes living a quality life and not running behind money like a moron.

    If the above mentioned things applies to your life, then you should quit. Quitting doesn't mean you're a failure. It does mean you learnt tons of things all this while. You can use these lessons when you move on to something else. God Bless You. Keep Working Hard and Persevere till the road ends.

    Cheers :)

    Well said.

    The sad fact is, even though most people love the idea of being able to be their own boss, or achieve higher levels of success, they simply do not have what it takes to be able to withstand the pressure and endure.

    I was at a seminar and Donald Trump, Rob Kiyosaki and some other successful businessmen spoke and this is what a lot of them said. The people that are not successful in the business world are the people that can't handle it. It doesn't make them a bad person, but it is good for them to realize simply that certain things are not for them.

    Sure i'd love to be a rockstar, but that life is only for certain people. I could take action and attempt to become a rockstar but sooner or later I would find out that that life is not for me.

    The same thing goes for everything.

    I honestly am not trying to discourage anyone, I encourage people to achieve, and mostly with people I would say "don't give up." But the truth is, people give up everyday and people will continue to.

    Just my thoughts

    the truth is that everyone was not made to be a internet marketer that the truth of things."you teach a man how to fish he eat for life you give a man a fish he eats for a day" well this quote is the same as IM you either was born to be a successful IMer making 200/day or even 80/day.you cant force someone to be successful because it was never written and there history.you can teach that person that quiting how to earn 90k/monthly by only going to Facebook and spamming pages.well and that person mind he's thinking wow spamming page mean TIME WASTING so he will never try the method i showed him because he feel like it would never work.

    Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts. I believe that Quitting is not a problem. Some people consider it as a taboo. In fact, given a chance I would like to replace the word, "Quitting" with "moving on". There are tons of better opportunities waiting for us, so why not grab them.

    I have a learnt a lot from my father. At one point of his life, he was a failed businessman. He had 5 cars which he had given on rent. But, one fine day he came to know that the rent company was not paying taxes to government so all their property was seized. My father's cars were gone in a flick of second. Without any inhibitions, he quit car business and started working in a company. Within few years he went on to become that company's General Manager. That company had a huge turnover the following year and soon my dad's salary was hiked. Now, he was earning more than what he earned through business. This is life. We should be always open for better opportunities.

    Cheers :)

    Everyone on here who makes good money, far better than what you would get in your average high paying job, would be making nothing if they had quit because things went wrong. The only thing which stops people earning in IM is negativity. And personally, I am sick of seeing their self pitying threads.

    Awesome Quotes Steel. You raised the bar of this thread by sharing these awesome quote by Confucius. Thanks a ton. :)



    My childhood was spent listening to these quotes daily. My father used to always remind me, "Rome was not built in a day and Practice makes man perfect". Everyone should inscribe these quotes in their subconscious.

    Although I agree that IM is far more paying than an average job but that doesn't mean you should stick to it despite failing repeatedly or not having any passion for the job in hand. Either give your best or move to something else. Simple.

    Well said bro, I have failed in IM, not for the one time but half of the times i have tried new methods but have never quit just because its my passion, i mean its not about HIGH PAYING or LOW PAYING job, its about what you love. they who think that they should quit are actualy having no passion at all so they should quit realy. Great thread brother.

    Thanks a lot. :) Passion plays a vital part in success. Without passion, you can force yourself to move ahead but mind will keep resisting.

    totally right - IM isn't for everyone.

    I run a successful site, I make daily what most people would be happy with weekly (or even monthly). But it's a bricks and morter business that I moved online.

    I can't even make beer money doing what most of you guys do. My adsense brings me in about $30 a month and I still haven't received a clickbank cheque yet after 2 years of trying. If it wasn't for that one cash cow site - I'd have given up long ago. I'd still be working as a SEO, because I can rank things OK, I just can't seem to sell shit. (thats the joy of running a bigger site and working in a team, I just market now, have long boozy lunches and paddle my surf ski. My staff do all the sales and customer contact kinda stuff, if we're really busy I may process some credit cards, but thats about it.)

    Fuck that. Men make their own history. Giving up is pointless, fuck being average as everyone else, fuck shit up and make money. All those that are whining, get out of your fucking comfort zone. Being comfortable with ourselves is the worst thing that has happened to our society. Everyone being lazy, fat, unhealthy but fuck that; this is a RPG. And in a RPG you must have the best items and highest level to beat everyone else, so go grind and become the best you could be.

    I lost count on how many times you used "Fuck" in your comment. :D Anyways, I have to humbly disagree with your comment. I don't mean to disrespect you but there are reasons to give up. I gave plenty of reasons to quit and I don't think they are pointless. It's not about being comfortable or lazy; it's about realizing the ground reality and being practical in life. Let's accept it, IM is not meant for everyone. There is a popular saying that 99% of people entering in IM never succeed in real terms and it's not because all of them are lazy and couch potatoes. These IMers fail because they are not passionate about their business. They simply don't like it.

    Cheers :)
