    does anyone need anything?

    Alright, given that you're bored, let's throw some ideas around. I jot down a bunch of business ideas all the time, but rather than to hoard them deep in my notes somewhere they may never see the light of day, I'd much rather share them with others. If anything, we can poke holes at where it...

    If you see a man undaunted in danger, untouched by passion, happy in adversity, calm in the raging storm, viewing mankind from a higher level and the gods from their own, will you not be moved by veneration? Will you not say: "this is too grand and lofty to be of a quality with the little body...

    NOTABLE! The MAIN difference between someone who makes 100k /year and someone who makes 1m?

    Exceptional people skills. One common trait I find among all the millionaires I know - they all have an uncanny ability to win people over. They're typically very charismatic, have a wonderful sense of humor, are genuinely friendly in their approach with people they're meeting, they offer...

    GOLD! I've Read UNSCRIPTED!

    I started reading self-help books nearly a decade ago - studying the likes of Napoleon Hill, Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, and Tim Ferris. During the same time frame, I picked up Stoic Philosophy and read (and still continue to reread) Marcus Aurelius' Meditations, Epictetus, and Seneca. I read...

    Mental Health and Entrepreneurship

    I love what you emphasized here. Believing you can solve your problem is really what has helped me too. The limiting belief is what causes the anxiety, the fear that theres no way out of the misery. Believing that I'm not grounded to my career, that I can get up and leave if I wanted to, that I...

    Mental Health and Entrepreneurship

    This time last year, I was undergoing one of my worst depressive episodes. For a moment, I felt absolutely crazy. I was petrified, because for the first time in my life, I thought there was no way out. That I was genuinely, chemically messed up, and that I was going to spiral out into madness...

    People dont buy the product they buy the offer

    "Most people are broke and remain broke because the money scam has made them perpetual chasers of something that cannot be chased - it can only be attracted by offering perceived value" - MJ in UNSCRIPTED. Of course, if the customer deems the perceived value offered and actual value obtained...

    INTRO Hi!

    To answer your questions, I'd like to reference a couple of quotes from MJ's UNSCRIPTED that I took to heart: "[...] your beliefs shape your identity and pierce into your meaning-and-purpose, or your whys. That purpose drives you into action, which in itself can be extremely difficult and...

    INTRO Hi!

    Good to meet you Dedalo! I'm also an engineer, but a Reservoir Engineer in oil exploration. I definitely understand your pain - I think my work is cool and I enjoy it, but I miss having the freedom to focus more on myself and my growth. College days were amazing - constantly learning, growing...

    INTRO Lost kid defies the odds, lands his Dream Job, and hates it...

    Good on you for making strides in industry! You must be a "rising star" or a "high potential" individual as flagged by management :p. And I have to agree with you: my time in the corporate world has not been bad either! I have a great understanding boss that gives me plenty of leash to work on...

    NOTABLE! The Coming Recession (2018-2019?)

    JScott, would it be a bad time to get started with real estate investing? It's been one of the key factors that has held me back from putting my money into real estate in the past year or so. I know that timing the market is impossible, but reading through this thread, it seems like some may...

    Thanks for sharing your story Silverfox. I love what you said about the countdown clock - I may not have it figured out yet, but I know for a fact that this will not be my life. What about yourself? In what way did you break from your 9-5, or if you still work it, what businesses have you...

    Thank you astr0. No you're definitely right, and I know that's the smart thing to do. I'll most likely not jeopardize my current situation impulsively - I'll start by executing SOMETHING before making the leap. I was reading through the forums and got inspired by G_Alexander who kept his job...

    INTRO Lost kid defies the odds, lands his Dream Job, and hates it...

    I'm 27 years old and 2 years into my "big-boy job" as a Petroleum Engineer. Paid off all by debt. Managed a decent amount of savings (in the eyes of the poor boy growing up with the mom that works at Dunkin Donuts). One thing I do, I avoid getting married, I avoid getting anyone pregnant, and...

    Picked up UNSCRIPTED last week, and I have not been able to put it down. I'm 75% through, and more motivated than ever to change the script.

    Awaken the Giant Within By Tony Robbins: Book Discussion

    One of my key takeaways from the book is the practice of associating immense pain or pleasure to the different facets of your life that you wish to change. Essentially, associating pain to something you don't want and associating pleasure to what you want. Common sense stuff right? Well, I took...
