  • lol... I was gonna pick the last option but... let's be real here - I'd probably have more cigars and cognac in the yacht rather than be on forums.

    But in all honesty - although I'm slowly approaching my mid-20's, I do still think about those material things. Like the cars, the boats, the penthouses, the jets, money, hoes and clothes, and all that jazz.

    Yes, it's all worth fighting for. But every time I procrastinate, every time I get lazy and every time I feel like giving up this silly game of IM, at the end of the day, I always think about, several years ahead, me coming home to that woman who's holding my baby in her arms. A family. Something really worth working this ass off for. That is at the pinnacle of all the milestones for me.

    All the things that are important to me - I put them all at risk every time I procrastinate, waste time, get lazy, blame others and make excuses.

    Am I going to give up what's important to me just because this game gets a little difficult?
    I want my future wife, kids, family etc. to be able to have more choices in life. More options, freedom, peace of mind. To be able to help an ever-greater amount of people do the same and live the values of a lifestyle with no compromise.

    That's why I work my ass off. In a day job or at home. I'm a hustler, baby. Every day.
    Every ad I set up, every word of every article I write, every minute of each video, every ounce of value I have to give is all worth it not just because the result I get - but because it's now part of my system. Part of who I am.

      Funny but not cool. I feel the pain. I think I was slapped by mistake too.

      Also, I work most Sundays, I live on the beach and prefer to surf when the rest of the world is working silly jobs PLUS I literally have a beautiful 5 mile beach all to myself on Mondays (but not today)

    Because when you love what you do, you never "work" a day in your life and I love what I do.

    Plus, I pretty much took the last week and a half to travel and have fun only checking in on my computer 2 times.

    And I just decided to throw up another squeeze page on a new thing and see how I could do with it and within about 2 hours with nothing more than posting it on social networks, I got a click, a sign up and a sale (all the same person) and made about $700... :-)

    One of the great things about working for yourself is that you can make the rules, instead of following everyone else's.

    I've been self-employed for more than 30 years now, and I don't "observe" weekends, other than not scheduling client meetings or consultations on Saturday or Sunday. This morning I walked five miles, swam in the ocean for an hour, ate and then sat down to work. I do this every day of the week. It makes for a calm, balanced lifestyle.

    I don't "observe" holidays, either. This enables me to travel when other people are not and enjoy greater value for my travel dollar.

    I highly recommend these practices - unless you have a religious or family reason for observing weekends and holidays.

    Why?
    I usually take Sunday's off, but with a client going crazy trying to figure out why he isn't ranking all that well, I had to put in an extra day to help him with some testing.

    I work most Sundays because I often take time off during the week. The time I take off during the week (to go out for lunch or whatever) I then recoup on a Saturday and Sunday.

    I do however tend to work at a slower pace etc.
