Do you have any truly inspirational tale to share that will be able to shatter the fortified wall of hopelessness and despair surrounding me? A particularly motivational (and real - no fairy tales, please.) success story, for example.
Yup, I'm a whiner. And I continue to repeat to myself:
"IM and related activities will only allow you to earn a few nickels";
"Even a tremendous amount of hard work won't allow you to earn an independent existence";
"Every market and niche is already saturated, so any struggle and battle will be fought in vain".
And so on. Pretty boring and shameful, I already know that. But - with a big, capital 'B' - I want to change those wrong and insane assumptions. I want to hear from someone who actually made it, that yes, it's possibile to achieve the goal of living off income from online activities, paying rent and bills without having to worry about putting food on the plate. A pretty ironic need of reassurance, as I've been a system/network administrator and general IT consultant for several years (long story extremely short, I had to take a few sabbatical years for personal reasons, but I haven't lost my technical knowledge).
Any suggestion for this aspiring warrior, tired of being a scared cat? I've already browsed thousands of posts here, but now my eyes are metaphorically bleeding and I didn't manage to find the "That's it!" post). Oh, I've already tried to just act without thinking about it countless times: I managed to launch Dreamweaver or writing a few lines of PHP code, but not much else.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I already have access to the War Room, but I'm too ashamed to post with my real account. Please, bear with me, or at least have a good laugh!
