    I Got My A$$ Beat...

    I Got My A$$ Beat... It has solidified in my mind that there is only one thing that holds us back from doing anything and achieving greatness in any aspect of our lives.. It's the thing that is the reason I've personally put off so many things that would have made my life hundreds of times...

    How My Friend Became A Millionaire

    Allow me to just rip off the band aid in the first paragraph. This story is not about how you get rich quick. Though it’s certainly a story of how one man got rich a lot quicker than most! And I’m really sorry to say this, but that was through hard work and discipline from an early age... But...

    Weak Work Ethic - Can You Help?

    Hey, in my opinion, I have a weak work ethic. Since I am working alone all the time, and since I don’t know anybody who is self-employed, I can’t talk to anyone about this problem. Let me just explain my situation a bit. Around seven years ago I lost all my friends. I felt that I needed a...

    Hey all! This is it! My first progress thread! I'm a FWS student, having joined back in may, and I'm on the cusp of going from portfolio work to full-time client work this month. It's sort of been hell, I was struggling with overtime at my dayjob, so I started waking up at 4:30am everyday to...

    Self discipline

    Hi guys, I have been self-employed for a year now, and I asked myself: "do you ever fall for it, and stop working suddenly and start again the next day?" I am super motivated by my projects, and I know where I want to go, but sometimes I crack and then I regret it. I would like to be on top...

    2 hours of cold calls a day

    I know, is not that much. But I have decided to commit to 2 hours of cold call 5 days a week. I hate it. I can't wait for the weekend. But at the same time, I feel different. I am more spontaneous in talking to people, I feel like I am doing something meaningful for myself. I feel...

    Mindset - Where To Go and What To Do

    Hello everyone, this is the first post I'm making on an actual account but I've been lurking the forums for quite a while. I've seen plenty of good advice and just as much bad advice for what not to do, but I wanted to take action and finally step up to the plate to admit. I'm TERRIFIED of...

    The science of making habits stick

    Hi all, looking for some support as usual... I figured a lot of you have read/heard and looked into how it works to develop/break habits, from a scientific perspective. I've read the "The Power of Habit" and some other texts related to it. So, I want to paint, right? I want to be a painter...

    Discipline - The Reason You Might Fail

    Being a full-time entrepreneur - at least starting out as I am - is at once one of the most glorious and most challenging things I've ever experienced. Hopefully, this will get you reflecting/thinking/considering your own climb. What's Glorious About It? Not needing to wake up to make a...

    From Employee to Employer

    I had joined Fastlane forum a year back just after finishing the Millionaire Fastlane. It made a deep fundamental change in how I approach and why time is extremely valuable. I did not quit my job instantly, however, I did many "hard" preparations both financially, physically and mentally. I...

    I've always been a chronic procrastinator, I thought something was truly wrong with me. I gave up on everything I ever tried and beat myself up about it so bad that a slow sink into depression was inevitable for me. I saw a therapist which helped me get out of the depression and got a lot of...

    You don't need motivation, you need discipline.

    I’m writing about cheese. Just keep writing and something will appear. I’m too tired to think clearly. When will the fog lift? Maybe in a few hours? This brain is finnicky and unreliable. Makes me wanna just simmalate into a robot already. Imagine a perfect robot mind. It’d be like taking some...

    A Minor Fuc! up

    I've been away awhile. Bad idea. I moved out of my parent's house for a few months, dropped out of college, started working in a factory full time, let Upwork jobs slide by, and almost squandered my savings. A minor F*ck up. But it has taught me one valuable lesson. DIRECTION + FOCUS...

    Wanting Something New

    After reading MJ's books, I was enamored. How could someone put so many of my exact thoughts into a couple books? It's like he was reading my mind. I was instantly impressed and had to come over here and start an account. I live in the Western suburbs of Chicago. I'm a slowlaner currently...
