I joined the forum a little while ago but never really introduced myself. I am doing it now because I would like to connect with like minded people. Also get some feedback and have some accountability of my Fast Lane process.
I am an entrepreneur at heart and always will be. But my mind fights with my heart and stops me from doing certain things.
Like most I have a few ideas I would like to make a reality. All that has prevented me from taking action is in my head. My brain is trying to prevent me from experiencing pain, the pain of failure. Even though I know this I donít realize when its happening and I end up going the safer route.
I also think part of the problem of not taking action is most of the useless crap I read before TMFL. It has f!@#ed me up. It has made me settle for less and lose my drive to strive for more than the basic human needs of food, shelter and health. Brainwashing myself that its ok to be where I am. If money hasnít fallen on my lap then that means the stars havenít aligned for me yet. Yes you can laugh but thatís basically it. There are a few other reasons that I clearly see now and especially after I read TMFL.
As a competitive person I dreaded the thought of failing at anything but I now have a different mindset. I have the mindset of failure. Yes I now know I will fail and maybe many times. I have made peace with the fact that failure will be part of the process. Failure will only make me stronger and smarter to get back up swinging.
My current mindset progress:
#1 This year is the first year I was not out there like an idiot on black Friday standing in the cold for hours in line just to save a few bucks.
#2 I have put myself in a situation of hunger, real hunger for food. It has caused amazing drive, focus and determination to get things done. I donít know what it is about being hungry but its working for me. I will never again get a job just to eat and get by. I will go hungry and homeless until I make it.
I now realize that it didnít help to have a very easy job that I love with very flexible hours and making enough money to get by. But after reading TMFL I bitch slapped myself and said F@#$ that! Its still a job and getting me nowhere, I have potential and I know I can accomplish a lot more.
Well Thatís all for now, I will post my biz idea and progress on another thread and hope to get your thoughts and feed back.
MJ thanks for stepping up and saying what needs to be said - period!
