as a newbie, I have recently discovered a simple way to keep me focused and not bummed.
I've been in the biz for about 3 months and I haven't made my first sale yet.
but I've learned that checking my clickbank/Pay.com/PayPal account twice a day is just depressing.
Of course I really want to see my first sale already, but seeing all the zeros dose not make me feel any better.
so I decided not to check my account for a whole week and it really did the trick, now I can focus only on working and progressing without being reminded every second that I'm still not selling.
If I do get my first sale I will see it when I eventually check my account anyway.
That's it, hope it will help you too,
