Ohhh Boy, Kind of a Clickbait intro but its true, Every Millionaire Must Read This Post And Give Your True Honest Advice..

Firstly Before Anything I just want to thank the person who introduced me to this Forum @Dr Fastlane, thanks for everything bro, everything, i will forever be grateful for as Long as a Live, you're a very important person in my life...

Ok Now Let me explain a little of my story, very short summary, ill give you enough to understand but not to over expose myself.. Basically im from a 3rd world country, I started a company in 2013, took a guy to work with me on it because he knew marketing and i didn't, he stole the company from me, i put in so much effort on that company today that guy drives lamborghinis and ferraris off my company, didn't make a single cent over it, whenever i text him on whatsapp telling him i want my money from my company he acts like im a charity case, my last message to him he referred me as "A B%$% on her periods".......

2014 i became "rich" bought a nice car and lived a great life, 2015 had even more money, bought an even better car(convertible) life was beyond great, got a super hot high maintenance gf and thought i had made it, by December 2015 i had lost it all, living a super high lifestyle "BTW im still kinda young, back then i was in my very early 20's", anyway sold my car moved to another city, met @Dr Fastlane online on an internet marketing forum, anyway lived an ok life 2016, averaging $600-$2k a month online doing blackhat CPA, 2017 came and it became the worst year of my life, my PC crashed beginning of year causing me to literally loose everything, "EVERYTHING" anyway shit went downhill from there, by end of year i decided to tell @Dr Fastlane that ill commit suicide that night, he was the only close friend that i trusted even though we have never met, were online friends, anyway hes a slick Mu#$%er, he convinced me not to do it, when he noticed its not working he made his X GF call me and convince me, anyway the words that made me not do it came from her, she said "Hey (my name), a close friend of mine told me to call you and convinced you not to take your life because he really cares about you", those words really hit home, he really did care, anyway i decided not to commit suicide that night then the next morning i get a call that my dad passed away, oh boy that crushed me.

I was completely broke and @Dr Fastlane loaned me $100 to get by for a few weeks, anyway fast forward 4 months after that i went from dead broke to having $80k worth of cryptos in my wallet, which by February bitcoin and cryptos went down and i lost that in price decreased and some bad ICO's and just living carelessly.

I think i have the DNA, i proved it many times, there's stories i left out and stuff, but ive gone from broke to a few $k's many time, issue is when i have the money i make bad decisions and then once they become bad my brain shuts down and i find myself in a cycle of endless planning and no execution, then when im dead broke i will start executing and working extra time, my baby mama said to me i work the hardest and smartest when im dead broke and that's true, my mind goes to super human mode and i make things happen, im able to think things proper and do things that i wont do when i have money.

right now my main focus is cashflow, my goal is to be making $10k a month residual, this will help me focus on the bigger goals, short term goals is to build a mansion, this would cost me $80k in my country (funny i know but its true), and also getting a 2014 Porsche boxter, im tire of paying rent, having a fully paid house will relieve lot of stress.

Why is the picture of what you claim to be "your old car" listed on sites that sell cars in San Diego when you say you are from Africa?
2014 Porsche Boxster SOLD [2014 Porsche Boxster] - $53,900.00 : Auto Consignment San Diego, private party auto sales made easy

The house is located in Africa like you said, but the car is not?
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you are lying about both. Not sure why.

Unless I've misinterpreted what you mean by those images. From what you said at the start, it seems like you are claiming those are what you had before you lost them.

If they are simply just pictures of goals however then I apologise in advance.

I'm not bashing you and neither is anyone else in this thread. We are skeptical, that is all.

I interpreted your post wrong. I was under the impression your pictures were relating to this statement you made.
2014 i became "rich" bought a nice car and lived a great life, 2015 had even more money, bought an even better car(convertible) life was beyond great, got a super hot high maintenance gf and thought i had made it,

You state you bought a "nice car" that was a "convertible", and you posted a picture of a convertible Porsche. So you can understand where the confusion comes from.

I apologise for the misunderstanding.

Ohhh Boy, Kind of a Clickbait intro but its true, Every Millionaire Must Read This Post And Give Your True Honest Advice..

Firstly, hi and welcome @MansaMusa!
I'm not a millionaire, but I'm guessing if you truly want advise from the ones in here that are, it would help if you clarify what you need advise on. Usually, the more specific the question is, the better advise you will get. :smile2:

anyway i decided not to commit suicide that night then the next morning i get a call that my dad passed away, oh boy that crushed me.
Happy to hear you opted to live. Great choice!

I think i have the DNA, i proved it many times, there's stories i left out and stuff, but ive gone from broke to a few $k's many time, issue is when i have the money i make bad decisions and then once they become bad my brain shuts down and i find myself in a cycle of endless planning and no execution, then when im dead broke i will start executing and working extra time, my baby mama said to me i work the hardest and smartest when im dead broke and that's true, my mind goes to super human mode and i make things happen, im able to think things proper and do things that i wont do when i have money.

Seems like you already know some things, like getting from broke to a few k's, so why not start there?
Have you read MJ's books? He is basically walking us through all the different mindsets, goals and thinking that governs what you are explaining, and how to get from there to fastlane mindset.

If you disclose a bit more about what your ideas are and how you plan to move forward, I'm sure there are lots of people here ready to give you input advice.

Best of luck!

Yeah I'm reading MJ's book "Millionaire fast lane, I'm on chapter 3 now, its mighty long i must say, but i will finish it.. This Forum However is Gold, been reading Posts from top author and i noticed two thing, there's a military mindset that all these guys have and 2 these guys use formulas and talk about formulas, the formula part is new but nor new to me, intuitively i have been doing it but i haven't formulated it and did it properly like these guys, i was doing it unconsciously, it was part of my planning stages.. started Implementing 3 days ago, im making progress so frar but i feel like its slower than i want, but i gues all things start slow, what im currently doing is a fastlane busines for cashflow, in my head its all in stages, right now its stage 1, which is to get the business moving farward and getting it at a satisfactory pace, then stage 2 would be to use the cashflow and invest it into marketing and scaling, then stage 3 its to go all in and to make it as big as i can then after that once i reach the number that's in my head i will spread into other ventures that are part of my bigger plan, also i left out alot of things, like during stage 2 i will be heavily investing into cryptos also. im just giving you a summary.

Not Much to write hear, still in phase 1 of my plan, trying to get into phase 2, might take a Gamble Saturday, if it works out it will get me in phase 2 really quick, but might not too, it will all depend if the odds are in my favor or not, anyway im trying to scale what im doing, im giving it id say 60% right now, well i just thought of that now, could be putting more effort to scaling which i will do from tomorrow onward.. might start another thread to get advice on what to do o phase 3, going from phase 1 to phase 2 on my game-plan is extremely hard, theres a lot of things that must come in place for me to transition to phase 2, but going from phase 2 to phase 3 its a lot easier, its just lining up the pieces.

just start with phase 1, make calculated decisions (you cant control everything) and then just keep pushing forward towards the mark; the pieces may or may not be lined up; you cant wait for it to be lined up and you cannot expect it to be lined up; you just go forward, trouble shoot, fire fight, adapt rinse recycle repeat.
