I know that in everything we do sometimes we get tired on what we usually do. Especially, when we get impatient and realizing that we dont get anything at all. In online money making especially for newbies. They dont get a fast results in their earnings and usually it takes us a month to cashout what we deserve. Or sometimes we are already fed up of scam sites. Did you ever feel tired and want to give up in online money making?

To be honest, right now I'm getting tired of online money making. I didn't figure out that it would be so hard especially if you don't have referrals under your name. Makes me frustrated to think that I'm here earning .04 cents per day while some guy earns $4 a day with his referrals alone. I know you might say I am selfish and a person who is obviously influenced by "crabmentality" but I just can't help thinking about it. But I really think this will prepare me later on in life and probably give me a sense of strong character. The character that never gives up so easily even though smacked by the countless frustrations of life. Happy my lotting Ms.Lockheart

Thanks for your response! Well, thats really frustrating to know that somebody else is making big money that what we usually get! But we must consider that we are just starting and they are old timers. Im getting tired of marketing my site but with every referrals that i acquire even though its only one thats enough to make me inspired again.

Back to last week,I really felt tired here on mylot.Earning became my goal here since I've been active.But I still have some difficulty expressing myself fully coz English is not my native language,which slows down my work here.Besides,Im not a creative person and its hard for me to start popular discussions.Fortunately,I dont live on online money.I have a full_time job.Most importantly,Im not at the point of giving up.I enjoy posting while seeing my earning update. Happy mylotting!

i think its kinda hard to do online money making if you have your full time job, i mean not that consistent.. you can just do it if you have some spare time, but if you got a work and the work is very tiring, and if that would be the case for me, i would give it up.. maybe!

Hi, I started for the first time to make money online last week and have only made nearly £10 but not been paid yet. I am already thinking of giving up but I have the spare time at the moment so I think I'll do it until I find another way to make money and still be at home for my kids:)

Thanks for your response. Hopefully, you could cashout your payout request in time. You are still starting this business and you can improve more better. I was searching for sites that could pay me in euro or pounds coz their value in our currency is more higher than dollars. I think a euro rates 60 pesos, pounds rate 100 pesos while dollar rates 50 pesos. Happy mylotting!

Are you joined to myhomepagefriends? They pay in pounds and I have made most of the money with them, over six pounds now:)

If I did that I would be to poor. 90% of the money I make comes from online, sources at least in part. I write for a few magazines but I have found out that they were hiring through the internet. I think a lot writers make money online or at least by using search engines to find opportunities. Its a hard life but its the one we have chosen.

I have been online for over a month now, searching sites and signing up and giving them some time and researching them, asking about them, and learning all that I can so that I will find a good 4 or 5 sites that I will stick with and I have to say it is very discouraging as I have been online for over 6 weeks and I have only made 2.00. So yes, there are times that I do get tired of it, since I am not making anything yet...I know it will be slow and that I have alot to learn but I have been spending so much time online in the last 6 wks that I feel horrible about taking that time away from my family. my goal is that by summer I will only spend 4 hours a day online, and have 4-5 sites that I absolutely love and will be making a decent income for a month.. I know it will be a slow start but I want to make 60-100.00 a month by the end of summer. At least I have a goal and I will stick with it. good luck to us all!!

I give up on a site when i find out it's really easy when you begin and then they make it harder. Like with the survey sites. At first you qualify for a million surveys and start racking up points and then nothing, and lo and behold you are just below cash out. I also steer clear of the ones requiring payments/credit info.

Right now I'm at a crossroads with this. My main plan was to try to make enough money to buy myself a new iPod and a gadget, but now it's starting to become tiresome. Three hundred dollars is quite a tall order, but I really, really, really want to do this for myself since we don't have that kind of money to literally throw away.

No not yet. I havent become rich but I do earn enough tjhat I can buy small items for myself. I do alot of research and been scammed many times but I have found some that pay and are legitimate sites. It may not be alot of money but I save it and then I am able to buy a new cd or something like that. It will just take some time but dont ever give up.

Yeah, I do get a little burned out sometimes, but a few sites actually pays me via PayPal on a daily basis, so I keep at it. It is saving me a lot of money. The best one I have came across, thus far, is Cashle. If you read/follow the FAQs and How-To Blog right, you can quickly get money deposited into your PayPal within 24 hours of reaching a dollar (which is very easy to do), if you wish. Visit my new, recent discussion about Cashle for additional details. Give it a shot!

You are right in saying that making money on line takes time, and when I started out five years ago, I thought it was never going to work, but then I thought, why not just keep going, just with a few hours each day and enjoy the experience of chatting and meeting new people. That's what I did and slowly but surely, I started getting referrals from using several programs and I began getting cash into my Paypal account - it is getting a little more often these days. I think if somebody was to ask me for advice on this, I would just say, enjoy yourself, keep working at it without expecting too much and one day, you will have a pleasant surprise. The secret is in building referrals, and keeping them as you friends. :-) Derek

I must say that you already got a lot of knowledge when it comes in online money making. 5 years is way too long now and still you are doing the same things. Although, i get referrals from my blog and site, i really need to work more hard to get more visitors to it. Thanks for your response.

No I've taken a break from earning online but ever since I first started trying to earn online I have stuck with it pretty well and it has proven to pay off. Earning online can be frustrating though and I think it's good to take a break every now and then because then when you go back to your sites there are a bunch of new offers or topics to respond to or something.
@lockheart (1406)

yeah, we really need to take a break at sometime because its kinda depressing when you think that there is nothing happened to your earnings.. its not like everyday we will be seeing developments on what we do, usually it takes a week and even months to see if there is a development or not. thanks for your response..

I did for about 2 months. But I really stay at home a lot more now. So I have a lot of free time to do whatever I want. I might as well make money while I'm at home. It's better than just playing on the computer or watching TV.

I have actually felt this way recently... I was just about to give up last night when I saw my total money from Mylotting and NeoBux... Actually its gonna take me 250 days to reach 10$ from neobux which really sucks... I gave up NeoBux... but I decided to keep up with MyLotting because I think I can improve and I am not limited to how much money I make.
@lockheart (1406)

maybe you should try to rent referrals in neobux for faster payout... anyway, goodluck to you.. happy mylotting..

YES! I can totally relate. But the advice I offer to myself and others =] is to keep on going! You will get there if you keep working at it. And if you already made some hard-earned money- then why quit? You already came so far! Usually for me it's not quitting, it's more of slacking off ... for a really... long time... =] Anyways, yes. It can be tiring and boring at times. But it rewards. Have a good day =]

No i have trust because i am trying sites that are paying to my friend every month so i did not loose my hope. In every job we need trust and we have to wait untill the things come to our hand i strongly belive that hard work always wins, so i did not loose my confidence on online money making.
