    O/T: HEALTH The interconnection between THE SCRIPT and Fitness + Exercise as a tool

    For those who don't like to read, you can skip to the part after the bold text: "So my point is" I read MFL and Unscripted almost a year ago and then I did absolutely nothing. I felt inspired for a few days but then I fell back in my old lethargic ways. Why? Because of bad habits: smoking...

    FAILURE How ACTION-FAKING cost me $6,543.21, TWO YEARS and TWO MONTHS.

    It started on May 25, 2016. I remember I was finished with my high school finals and was glad it was over. Since I had nothing to do, I spent that time playing Black Ops 3 zombies ($59.97) on Der Eisendrache ($14.95). While I was playing BO3, I went to my laptop to search up different guides on...

    NOTABLE! A Room Full of Opportunity (Follow up on the darn leads!)

    I have 2 stories to share. I think it's easy to get involved in the fastlane here, and start to lose sight of how most people in the world actually are, and hopefully you can realize that it isn't actually that hard to set yourself apart from most. It really just takes some legit effort and...

    Articles to keep you from being a Wantapreneur: post here please!

    I was thinking it would be great if anyone else had *short articles* for learning, to keep them all together by topic. So I'm hoping others will suggest other sources here on this thread. Here's my suggested read. While I disagree with it about avoiding all luxury, point 2 about needing an...

    Is this action-faking?

    ** Background ** I'm a "software guy". I'm just starting my journey. I don't know what exactly I'll build, but it'll most likely be software, likely a SaaS. I have some ideas that I'm testing currently. I feel very comfortable with the following already, and use a lot of these: Servers...

    INTRO Hi there, each action I take feels like I'm wasting my time and action faking

    Hi everyone, I've posted here a couple of times, but I haven't made a proper introduction yet, so here it is. I'm 15, and after reading the millionaire fastlane I decided I needed to do something instead of stagnating all day, so took action and started a dropshipping store, pissed away $1400...
