    Seeing things like this on Social media is kind of sad if you ask me. They just put numbers there and try to make it seem like it is soooooo easy.I personally do not have the success (I am trying) others on the forum have but when I see people on social media put out stuff like this it makes me sad for the people who see this and think it is incredibly simple to do. I get that this is the kind of stuff you see on Social media but it still makes me feel a certain way.

    It is that simple. People fail at execution. I am, one of those, people.

    Those numbers look so easy. No need to count expenses or taxes those don't count lol.

    "Just get 250 people to give you $333 a month dude. Easy."

    ‘Simple’ and ‘easy’ are two very different things.

    But it is that easy. MJ even says something similar to this in TMF.

    Most things on social media are a complete waste of time. But this is true. It just lays out the numbers.

    It's up to us to find a need and execute to make those numbers a reality.

    I do not know if you meant you fail at execution in a bad way but if you do change your mindset from what I have noticed it helps around here :smile2:

    Yes, but this is backwards. You don't go, "How can I get 250 people to pay me $333 per month?" before starting a successful business. The math works and knowing your numbers are important but this approach doesn't make sense.

    This is one of those feel-good motivational/success type posts on FB/IG, that gets shared around among friends, everyone gives it a Like, feel good, pat and slap each others' back, then move on and go about their daily slowlaners/sidewalker life, until the next such post comes along and the cycle repeats.

    Yeah, I don't think this is the way you should start/build your business. It's just a quick breakdown of the numbers to show people it's possible. The content is good, but if you are just using it for a quick motivational boost or to action fake, you obviously aren't going to get anywhere.

    That post is mental masturbation for action-fakers. :)
