    Can money buy happiness? Scientists (finally) say yes.

    NOTABLE! HOT! MINDSET 
    In light of the "To hell with getting rich, I just need to own my time" threads around here I give you the following: https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2023/03/08/money-wealth-happiness-study/ I don't like citing WAPO, but I'm familiar with these scientists so I feel I can post this.

    The pursuit of Happyness... in real life.

    INTRO 
    Hi everyone, I came across MJ books and this forum thanks to a dear friend that recommended me “Unscripted”. I devoured it in a couple of days. Then I read TMF and I’m now reading The Great Rat Race Escape. These books blown my mind: I finally understand my inner discomfort about 9-5...

    Responsibility and accountability

    INTRO 
    I am pondering on one of the things MJ Demarco has wrote in TMF, responsibility and accountability. As we get aware of the scripted system and we decide to go unscripted, at that point, we become responsible for chosing to remain scripted or go immediately unscripted and we will be accountable...

    **This thread will change the way you think.**

    GOLD! HOT! 
    Here are notes on things that aren't obvious but will change the way you think about life. An eclectic collection. Your habits are what drives your mood, and mood is a filter through which you experience life. Happiness is not some fantom state of joy, it is how your mood filters experiences...

    If you want to know how to be happier, continue reading… If you want to know why your brain is design to keep you from being happy, continue reading… Here’s the thing that we don’t learn in school… At least I didn’t learn this… My parents didn’t teach it to me either… Happiness is a...

    What Are You Grateful For Today?

    HOT! MINDSET CHAT 
    There are countless studies explaining why gratitude works and how it impacts positively our well-being. A couple of weeks ago I started with my girlfriend daily "say 5 things you're grateful for" practice and it's been helpful to slowly learn to focus more on the good aspects of life instead...

    GOLD! MINDSET 
    All that matters in life is that we are happy with it. After all, who did we build big businesses, amass fortunes, and live so extravagantly for in the first place? If it was for others, our own happiness was never pursued. If we happen to be content, it is only out of circumstance and not out...

    From Hustle Burnout to Working 10hrs/week and Loving Life

    Sometimes in life you don't realize how far you've come until you stop and look back. I'm currently in a small beach town in Brazil, as a part of a 3 month trip to South America. I wake up with no alarm clock..and start the day with my morning routine that takes about 2 hours. Afterwards I...

    How do you become a happy person?

    HOT! MINDSET 
    ** PLEASE IGNORE ALL MY PREVIOUS POSTS ** I want to start off with that. It was all stuff that came in to my mind and I thought 'oh, I can make money that way'. I finally realize the main goal should not be money. It's a 'reward' for delivering help to the needed. I'm 24, no job and living at...

    The Biggest Disease Affecting Humanity - CRITICAL

    MINDSET 
    I recently came across this talk & it affected me pretty deeply. I feel like many of us have this "I am not enough" mindset deep down in their unconscious, and I think it can be either a driving factor for growth or the thing that limits their life severely. What do I mean by this? Either...

    Crushing the Comfort Zone

    HOT! MINDSET 
    I've been thinking (and researching) about comfort zones and how they can hinder your ability to grow as a person. There is also evidence that your business can stall/suffer if you stay in the comfort zone too long. My research is starting to convince me that pushing yourself and your business...

    How do I get 100% happy?

    MINDSET 
    I'm happy in a way! I've got a girlfriend, friends, good relationship with my family and a fulltime job. If people ask me what I do besides my job that's the moment I start feeling uncomfortable. 'Yeah uhm playing videogames sometimes, watch some Netflix, hang out with friends'. Sometimes I do...

    Finally... Money CAN Buy Happiness.

    MINDSET 
    Been saying it for years, but the reasoned argument never can make it beyond the noise of the Mainstream Media who wants you to be a compliant and mindless drone who accepts the 9-to-5, Just-Over-Broke paradigm. I'm only upset that I wasn't asked to contribute...

    Did you miss me, huh? I sure missed all of you! Remember that post I did about how I was over the depression, and well on my way to the Fastlane? Yeah, me too. It turns out that it takes a lot longer than anticipated, especially with hidden health issues underlying the whole thing. Ugh. Sorry...
