Of course, not all days are good. But just think that tomorrow will be a new day and you can always do something good out of it.

I usually get motivated by reading (usually fake) success stories people post on these forums and blogs lol!

The few that have real stories really get me thinking: "Why not me?"

It can be difficult to sustain motivation over a long period of time. Sometimes, I find myself in a rut where I realize I've more or less locked myself into a routine that isn't getting me where I need to go. At those times, I try to step back and see what changes I can make. Failing that, I do something I don't normally do - go to the library, do an errand, take a walk, something to break the routine. Occasionally, it is enough to push me into making more substantial changes.

I read obituaries. It reminds me to get my act together before its too late. Some are quite inspirational.

glad to know i'm not the only one who goes through the roller coaster so to speak. one day we'll all be domain/webmaster millionaires! that's what keeps me going, but then my dark side tells me i'm crazy and it'll never happen.

Your response reminded me of one of my favorite quotes ...

Most of my websites are centered around things that I enjoy. That helps me stay motivated quite a bit.

Money is a great motivator - especially a lack of money or just the need or desire to make more. You should also enjoy what you do, as this makes it much easier to motivate yourself to work hard.
