    Don't worry about add-ons, worry about the police busting down your door, you could go to jail for that.

    I suppose it depends how bad you want success.

    Here is my best advice. Ask yourself this question "what am I willing to sacrifice in order to have success in my life"?

    How far are you willing to go? Are you prepared to give up YT and FB?

    I wanted success so very very much that I worked over 10 hours sometimes 15 hours every day non stop with out fail.

    That type of mentality might help you get motivated. Set your goals, write daily lists, every day take action, follow through and forget about all your distractions believe me they will always be there weather you are successful or not.

    Today is tomorrows yesterday how will you spend it?

    There you go, there is your little pep talk for the day :-)

    Get a timer.

    4 times a day set that timer for an hour. ( 4 hours a day)

    In these one hour blocks do productive work. 4 hours is not a whole lot of time. Especially if you are getting a break in between each hour.

    I've actually watched a video on this before and if you do this for 12 days. You end up doing the same amount of work that the average marketer does in 3 months. In 12 days.

    That puts you a huge amount ahead of the competition.

    I will look for that video just now and when I find it, I will post it on here for you to watch. It's pretty cool, it follows a guy who was able to rank a website in the number one spot in 12 days for a pretty competitive keyword.

    Every external solution is worthless. What you really need to do is resolve the internal problems.

    Don't worry everyone has this problem of losing focus in the internet by end up doing things that out of what intend to do and wasting much more time as a result.

    I cure this myself by writing in my notebook what I am planning to do, such as submitting articles, getting backlinks, edit the website content and anything.

    I picked up the pen and marked what I finish it.

    Focus in exactly what you want to do and narrow your attention at only in what you write in your notebook.

    Good Luck
