    BREAKING NEWS: The Mexican Fisherman has filed for bankruptcy.

    I agree with MJ. At first when I heard this parable, I thought it was insightful and clever. Which for a guy who hates his life trying to build a fishing empire just so that one day he can take his afternoon nap, it might be a useful parable. But if someone is using it as an excuse to not...

    What would you tell your 18 or 25 year old self?

    Advice I would give to my 21 year old self: 1. Keep/find people in your life close that know your strengths and weaknesses, and will help you see perspective before you make an idiot mistake. Example: Dating a person that doesn't care for your values. It will cause pain and waste a lot of time...

    What improved your life so much that you wish you did it sooner?

    GOLD! HOT! 
    But wouldn't that be kind of Epicurean though? To find the right balance? Stoicism would be more like to choose a "counter balance?"

    AndreP What do you think about the books "The courage to be disliked" and "The courage to be happy"? If you've read them, they were a game changer for me.

    Is this a good plan according to moving into the fast lane approach?

    I read "The Great Rat Race Escape." It was very good and very valuable! I loved the story plus the information, it was very engaging! I thought it was perfect that the characters read the books I've read and listening to their reactions. So Good! I'll be referencing this book many times.

    I've Read The Millionaire Fastlane!

    Hello! Glad to be apart of the forum!

    The main reason? Because that's where my girlfriend is from, and she's very supportive. The summers are warm, lakes are great. The trees during the fall are great. The Winters are cold and snowy. I enjoy the change in scenery. All my family and friends live on the West Coast of the US, and I've...
