What motivates you to earn online

This is not the first time I have a "competition" between sites. This helps me earn better at both sites each time, and now I am having mylot versus neobux (with 5 referrals) close to 8 us dollars each. I have noticed that such events help me concentrate on sites better (especially mylot where inspiration is needed to earn of course). So my question is what motivates each of you to earn online ?

My motivation is to have some kind of independence in my old age, even if it's just having enough to buy a small item without having to ask one of my children for the money. I'm nearly 60 and because of my financial dependence on another for so many years, I do not have a retirement fund. I've accepted that I'll probably have to live with my children when I'm old and I'm putting away all the money I can in a savings account and my few investments so that I can maintain some little independence later on. This is a powerful motivator for me. I don't want to have to ask someone for money to buy a birthday present for a grandchild (hopefully I'll have some!) or a stamp to mail a birthday card to a friend. I will never be well off but I can retain some dignity and online earning will help.

Money mostly, of course. Plus I also learn from people online. Usually they are things that I don't learn from other sources.

There is something that I would like to buy and it costs $30. It's a lot of money for me. I can't afford myself to just buy things I want with money that is supposed to cover mine and my mom's expenses. So I decided to earn that money the easiest way possible. Making money online requires a lot of patience but at least I can control the time I spend on it and it doesn't keep me away from my studies.

For me, it is about making value for time I mean when we want to surf and be online it is good to use it to earn with some fun and joy.

The motivation is simply 'to earn more' and what else? For us, all sites are equal and we will concentrate more where we get more payment. So the as and when we get more it is getting motivated automatically to work more and earn accordingly.

Well, for one, I don't want a site where it takes forever for a payout, (more than 6 months is too long if you ask me, especially for 10.00)and it has to be not too difficult. MyLot was difficult at first, learning what I can and I cannot post plus in the beginning everyone was a stranger to me, but after a while, I made good friends and it became a fun site. So yeah, reasonable payout as well as fun is probably what motivates me.

All kinds of things motivate me to earn online. Things like right now it's -11.0 Celsius with a wind chill making if feel like it's -15.0 That's COLD. I don't have to go out to go to work. If I'm tired and feel like sleeping all day, I can do that and not have to worry that I'll be fired. I have no dress code to follow and I don't have to wait till break time to use the bathroom. I can eat whenever I want too. I would never have the above benefits if I had to work for some one else. I can also make as much money as I want because I have no one to tell me I am only going to make X amount per hour/week/month. I can also make money while I am sleeping. I could be selling stuff or people could be reading my articles and checking out some affiliate programs. Or I might wake up to find that some one bought one of my services. So what motivates me? Money and freedom.

Like everyone said, money. Since we are earning while staying online then why not work on it. Also the site is really paying and not a scam, that's what motivates me too. Last one is I'm enjoying here while learning new things or releasing my emotions.

The same thing that motivates almost everything else in my life - my children. I like to earn money on here and i don't cash it out until closer to Christmas time or near their birthdays. It just gives me a bit of extra money to spend on them :)

I am motivated by the freedom and rewards; that am able to select which online jobs to do, set my own time to work and get paid for it. In addition, i find the interaction with other members of particular sites through discussion forums quite attractive and eye opening.

the motivation for me is the fact i can earn some money, however small, as it is more than what I started with. With the times being what they are, i try to make as much as I can, and I don't earn much, but it all adds up in the end, and that is all that matters to me. Now, I will say though, that the money I earn in here, is minute, but the fun and the knowledge i receive, are both priceless. i mean don't get me wrong, it is nice to earn in here, but that isn't the main reason I am here. i didn't always feel that way though, as when I first started, it was for the money, until i realized the fun that i was having, and so my mindset changed. I will say though, i do enjoy doing things online to make a little here and tere though, as it helps supplement my fixed income/ Take care, and have a very good day.

I love earning online, and when I want something bad enough, I go after it I have done this a lot lately, when I see something that I want to buy, I just come here online, work hard as I get earn the money that I want, to buy the item that I want, in the store that I see, and before I know it I put all my earning together, from what I have earn, from different web sites and I have the money that i need, asking other people for the money, just doesn't work for me any more.
