How do you keep yourself motivated while making money online?

I feel like giving up right now! The main sources that I use to make money online are GPT sites, PTC sites, and sometimes Google Adsense. I've been introduced to many new great opportunities to make money online but I feel drained as if it'll take too long to reach payout or I just don't feel excited while trying to make money. It's hard because when I try GPT sites, most of the offers I submit don't get credited, PTC sites are just pocket change for me and I don't have any referrals, and the new sites I'm thinking about joining just require WAY too much time and effort...I just don't know what to do anymore! :( How do you keep yourself motivated while making money online?

Sometimes I feel the same way, I just want to give up. However, the thing that keeps me motivated and keep on going is thinking about the item I'm going to buy with the money I earn. It'll be in my hands, but only if I keep on going.

It is time consuming, but I guess you have to keep focus on the money. I tell myself I have nothing else making me any money so I might as well sit here, and do what I have to do.

i can feel with you. So often i'm like "man i need some money" and i go online only to come back 5 hours later with nothing. But this site seems very awesome. Like i saw someone earlier say, i get to work on my english and express my ideas on this site! so thats awesome :D But i have to say, listening ot music at the same time doing things like this, makes it so much easier. also, looking at that ITem you want, will help out much!

simple...i just tell my myself "I need the money, I need the money..." or it helps too if I say "I need to pay the bills...the bills..."""

It is really discouraging sometimes when, after working on a certain site, expecting to get paid soon, then they close or you realize too late that it's a scam site. I motivate myself by setting a realistic goal to reach per day. That way I don't get discouraged easily.

Well i try to keep motivated by trying to stay relaxed and go solid at this for a few days then have a day off and so on. That way im not on here all the time. I use sites like triond where you write articles and you can earn by people viewing them the key is to write a article that wil interest lots of people. But at times i do feel like giving up too.

When i do my mylot work online, i almost loose my motivation and my patients when at the end of the day i find that i have not completed my required.And remaining motivated is next to impossible for me sometimes.But still i take long breaks if i am not confident enough to go further with my discussions and then come back with a zeal.

Hi,here is my points,hope it may help you: (1)Do not rely too much on it,earning is not the most important,what you do is making fun,and the more you want making fun,the more you will get enjoy the dicussion. (2)Choose the topics that only interests you,as you will have something to say on that,and you won't get bored. (3)always remember that the more you do,the more you will gain.Tks!

Since I make money online just to get extra pocket money, then I feel happy no matter how much the amount. I think I just keep patience and imagine the money,,and the things I can buy with it. It's my effort to get money online and I will do it. Maybe you need to get many referrals? I think as time goes by, you will find the sites you're looking for, or maybe build your own site! Don't give up now and don't make it too serious,,just relax and enjoy it Hope you will get better income from make money online.. Good luck and GBU

Well for me, I try not to think about it too often as it will only frustrate me when you always focus on getting payout. The best advice i can give is to go for something that you enjoy, whether it is writing articles online, participating in discussions, or answering surveys. That way, you can learn to actually enjoy what you do and bask in whatever earnings you've made. after all, money making on the internet really takes a great deal of tiem before you can see the fruits of your labor.

Things that keep me motivated is of course the money. I always look at my education loan and it monthly charges and how I wish I could pay it back as soon as possible. It doesn't include the interest too. it so frightening. Moreover i have other obligations and things that I wanted to do, so I keep on doing and learning. One of the main reason I don't make it much until now is because of my procrastination. therefore, I just keep on moving. You know, there are money that can be make it here, it just you cannot quit and give up. Along the way, you will encounter a way to earn, it just you need to keep on going. good luck

Let me tell you that I feel the same way sometimes. But this is what I do. I e-mail my ref. links to my friends and fam. members and some of them e-mail that to their friends and so on and that is how I get referrals. Also I post the banners that they provide in my social networks sites.

I get discouraged to. I think there are some really good moneymaking opportunities online and some that are just more troubler then they are worth. Mostly I think that there are some really good things and things that are just wasting my time. I think that you have to be very careful where you put your time.
