    BigBuddy already made a thread similar to this one, but I just want to share something I remembered of.

    Lately I have been thinking a lot about an episode of SouthPark I saw some time ago.

    In it, Eric wanted to become a pirate. And he wanted it bad.

    BUT he didn't sit on his already fat ass all day, re watching Pirates of the Carribbean and thinking about how awesome Jack Sparrow must have it... Oh no.

    Eric got off his but and went to mother f*cking SOMALIA to BECOME a pirate!

    He got on a bus, then a plane, then a bus and then another bus and he got to Somalia, and he became a pirate!

    He gave exactly 0 shit about what anybody had to say about it.
    He did incredibly dangerous and stupid shit to achieve his dream, but he did it!

    He could have been robbed, killed, r@ped (probably not), but he took the chance and he did it!

    He wanted to be a pirate so he Took Action! He went to Somalia! Can you even imagine that?

    OK, now look at yourself in the mirror....

    Your "pirate" is a successful internet marketer who is earning a good amount.


    Your JackSparrow is anyone on BHW who is doing well.


    But all you do all day is re-watch pirates of the carribbean and you are not even close to stealing your mom's credit card to buy tickets to Somalia.

    IM is not for everybody. A few bad investments and you are out, quite possibly in debt. Most of you will give up when you see the bad part - the days without clicks, the days without traffic, the days without commissions.

    But Eric saw those Somalia streets (Bad IM days) and didn't give a fuck! He wen't and B-E-C-A-M-E a pirate!

    And I know people who think and mingle and delay and whine for weeks before even buying hosting!

    Your "Pirates of the Carribbean" is BHW. Don't just stare at it thinking how nice it would be for you to earn as much as the top guys - study it!

    But more importantly - Act! Take Action! Do it! Just Do it!

    Sorry if this doesn't make much sense to you. I find it that thinking about this episode and what Eric did helps me overcome any procrastination and get the Job done.

    I hope it can do the same for you and that is why I shared this story.

    Is a little bit rude to see something like this from a non-reputable member like you.

    lol This was pretty funny. Unfortunately, it makes no sense as a comparison, what with it being a TV show and all. Anything is possible with animation, the same can't be said for life.

    I thought it made some sense, after all we can all see the point, take action or sit on your butt, excuses get you no where and no matter the excuse only action will move you forward.

    I won't be defending myself.

    I just wanted to share something that works for me with BHW. That's all.

    If anyone feels offended or thinks that I can not try to motivate people just because I am not a "reputible member", please feel free to hate and flame as much as your soul desires.


    I will be making money in the mean time.

    There is only one Jack Sparrow in this forum. The rest are just imitators!

    By the way Major Boobage is my favorite South Park episode.

    why are you hating on the OP, actually I think there's a lot of similarities in his anecdote & it will help those individuals that find it hard to motivate themselves.

    Me Personally I haven't made $1 yet in IM but I keep pushing myself towards the bright light as I know that some day I will reach my destination. That doesn't mean that I don't have thoughts of giving up but I keep pushing forward.

    Now this is were his story comes in handy, I am a programmer so I know that I can get offline clients if I really wanted to & be making some nice $$ a month but what my mind keeps thinking about is the countless f**ks who complain at your work or want maintenance. I want to succeed because I want to be free from this so I'm trying as hard as I can to bring in the $$ from other online ventures. But If I don't succeed, I will have to go to SOMALIA(get offline clients) if I wanted to be a PIRATE(successful).

    No offence ilpatrino, if you ain't made your first $1 yet (assuming you've been trying since at least Sept 2011), maybe IM isn't for you.

    I have been trying hard really, at the moment I'm trying to understand how to create successful methods as the ones I read on here haven't actually worked for me. My cpa account is sitting at $25 which I cannot retrieve.

    I didn't mean to sound offensive with my post, just responded with what I thought about it. If you can find inspiration in it, then more power to you. :)

    lol, i have seen worse posts on BHW. Its not hard to understand what the OP is getting at, and he achieves it to some degree, but maybe he should stick to IM instead of motivational consulting... not hating, just bored and giving my honest opinion.

    Provide a service (honestly, retards are making money by writing/spinning shitty articles).. imagine what YOU could do.

    Not quiet retarded, but some fuckin dumb people sell "testimonial" services on fiverr. Easy money. Not much of it, but its easy.

    Or create a product. Play a musical instrument? Go fishin? Ever stalked an ex gf until you got her back into your arms? Know how to cook up a tasty burger? Create a guide showing noobs how to get mad skillz like you.

    There's loads of ways of making money..

    You cant success without being active, but you need to learn from mistakes and get better. Learing from others mistakes is what smart guys do.

    Better call trey parker and his friend the guys that believed their "akward" animation serie would bring them millions. Them both didnt give a fuck, and even more now.

    In general you americans are so creative and progresive when it comes to interwebs, why is that? Is it because you have no free healthcare or get paid low?

    Be mighty careful about saying "you americans" on bhw. Nobody is allowed to post comments towards a race or group of citizens.

    That being said and back on topic. Everyone knows Butter's is the BEST IM character on SP. Meek, timid and quiet until you push him too far and then he becomes PROFESSOR CHAOS and all hell breaks loose!
