There are a lot of techniques that can be deployed to get the most out of your day. A number of them are pretty effective. I have tried a bunch of them over the years because like everyone else I had to find one that fit my style. Finally I had my epiphany and now it's not an issue to be productive daily.

Will you shed some light on your own experience with this age old struggle?

      ^^^ This x 1,000,000

      I feel if we are true to ourselves and true to the world around us, it doesn't become

      a "job" or "work"

      or "another sale"

      or "a new technique"

      or "the secret" it just becomes life. I help others.

      Sometimes it brings me money, sometimes it just helps me feel alive and part of the bigger picture.

      Its a feeling, an attitude, a life.

    Thanks for writing this. I just realized that this was why I started out in IM - to see if it was possible. Now that I have demonstrated that it IS possible earn a complete income off IM, I have hit an interest plateau where I am a bit bored by IM.

    Actually, I signed up to this forum for the first time a couple days ago just to try to get my mojo back after 5 years of hard work to get to the point where my family is completely supported by IM (replacing too well-paying full-time jobs).

    I now need to look for new motivation. That's why I'm here.

    I went for Harv Eker's Millionare Mind Intensive session and that was my awakening - I learnt about passive income, about the online industry, about the ability to generate millions - I was a small thinker before wanting a 60k a year 'job' and now I'm totally inspired and I know I will make it big no matter what happens.... the only means to a failure is the blockage of fear - nothing can stop you but you

  • Like others who posted, I am constantly improving myself.

    One technique that has excited me recently is figuring the Minimum Effective Dose (MED) for achieving success.

    This was introduced to me by Timothy Ferris in the Four Hour Body.

    If you are not familiar with this technique, below is a link to an article (not my article) - Tim Ferriss's Life Hacks | Mental Conditioning | OutsideOnline.com

      Knowing the results I want, why I want them and believing without any doubt that I will get them. I believe that the 'why' aspect is an essential component. Many people say things like that they want to be rich, want their own business, want to work from home, want to quit their day job, etc but WHY do they want these things? Knowing that 'why' and keeping it in front of me all the time is what gives me the determination to carry on and succeed, never doubting that I will get there

      It drives me to know that to get big results I need to put in big effort. And it further drives me to know that most people can't be bothered to push that hard. So I will be in an overall minority to be so well off when few others around me are no where close.

      It's sort of counter intuitive to aim for the result that requires more effort, but when you're reaping the rewards of your efforts as you go along...

      Doesn't that make it worth it?

    I can be very productive once I start to become consistently successful. In other words, when momentum is with me I tend to do very well.

    Give yourself small tasks, complete those successfully, feel good about yourself – that’s my motto.
