    But after some reconsideration I've decided to start a thread about this because lots of people here have no grasp about what it takes to be successful, even after they read thousand of methods and countless motivational posts, all saying the same thing. All I've wrote has been said over and over again. But some people...a lot of them...don't seem to understand, they fall in the category "tell me the same thing 10 million times and maybe I'll get it". So, with them in mind, here it goes:

    You never know, that guy may have lost his favourite tools in the shed; you can't put price on sentimental value....:p

    Anyway, I agree with a lot of what you say. However, a lot of people do achieve success in life after jumping around from one thing to another (online and offline). Of course, consistency with one method or job will grant you that steady rise, but often you see people hitting the big time who have literally stumbled on to a money maker. They may argue that you never know what you are truly good at unless you have tried it, ie you may have a hidden flair for X, that was never realised until you tried.

    I'm just playing devils advocate though, and 90% it is better to stick with a method etc.

    Some people do know when its time to change direction. Since I have been running my own small business the last 3 years I would add don't listen to all of the negativity from others. Especially those who tell you advice but have never been in that position before. I recently got this from an old project manager from 6 years ago, giving me all of this advice. The catch was he is still trying to get his company running and has at least another year. And here I am going on 3 years in a depression. Lots of bad advice from him. Obviously there was some useful info mixed in. Making real money takes time and patience and a lot of hard work. I would say most people can't even imagine what real hard work means either.
