What helps you overcome discouragement?
One thing I began doing back then (and still do today) is keeping track of my list growth each day, week and month to let me know I was building something.
I put into a spreadsheet how many new leads I got today, this week, this month and all time. Then, to stay motivated, I would multiply each of those figures by what I estimated I would make from those subscribers in a year--at the time I didn't have any data of my own so I just estimated I would make $5 per subscriber.
So if I added 150 subscribers in a month, I estimated that my work that month would eventually put $750.00 (150 x $5) into my bank account.
(By the way, it turned out I make about $23 per subscriber, so I actually make $3,450.00 for 150 subs.)
Using this I was able to stay motivated and eventually build a list of over 50,000 double opt-in subscribers.
So how to you overcome discouragement? What "tricks" do you use to stay motivated?
