People who believe that getting out of the script in one year is impossible are scripted.

It can be done, there are people out there who started their first company and made mid 7-8 figures in their first year. It could be you, who knows.

It depends on the person. For some, once they see some contrarian information that goes against everything that they've been taught by the external world, they make that shift instantly.

But like you said, it's a process. Everything in life is a process.

Well, it depends.

You’ve got the badges that you read the books, I understand what you’re saying but that is a bold claim.

Most people thinking that are delusional. Especially the ones that think their dropshipping store is changing the world.

Overestimating what you can do in one year is a common mistake.
Underestimating what you can do in 10 years also a mistake.


MJ gave that 10 year figure for a reason.

Yes, it is!

Be ready to fail fast & hard, get embarrassed, do things you would have never done before!

Be ready to use other people time, money, knowledge.

There is nothing wrong with that, especially compensating them on a contracting basis.

Remove all your stigmas around money, getting rich using others and all of that shit, the average guy says to you.

It's a dog eats dog world, son!

Also to get unscripted in 1 year means working faster, harder, smarter and taking huge risks (Loans, Deals, Raising Capital, Taking big projects without knowing if you can deliver)

Indeed, I have read the books. And indeed, my statement is a bold claim. Most people dismiss "getting rich quickly" as a scam. Most people don't start their own CENTS business. Most people will, indeed, not get unscripted in one year. But I am not talking about "most people" in my post and especially not about dropshipping. I am talking about those who are willing to do the bold steps. Those who find the best ideas. Those who will succeed no matter what. Or as @Antifragile wrote it in a different thread:

This place is best for the damn few who want more. Who won’t take “no” for an answer. For those who have been rejected and they just smiled and marched on. Those who ask for help. Those who know how to ask for help. Those who will succeed.

Regarding MJ's selection of 10 years in his 1-5-10 planasy I suppose that this should also represent a period of time where most of the entrepreneurs can succeed realistically. But very exceptional ideas and very exceptional execution can provide quicker unscription as well.

@MJ DeMarco: Is my assumption correct? If not, what was the actual reasoning behind selecting 1, 5 and 10 years?

What I really wanted to say is that if a person is doubting whether they can achieve unscription within 1 year, they are already living in the scripted mindset which creates, well, scripted results. In that case the chances to achieve this daring goal decrease.

Since I was tagged, I’d like to say that one year is a hard, hard goal. Possible? Maybe. But damn hard.
I prefer being pragmatic. Aggressive goals, but pragmatic.

People often overestimate how much they can accomplish in 1 year and underestimate how much they can do in 10 years.

Possible things have a higher than 0% chance/risk of happening. Ask instead what is realistic/optimal/reasonable for you. A better question would include your circumstances and asking how much time it is LIKELY to take?

It's possible depending how much effort and time you can put in, and how honest you are with yourself. I was already living unscripted in the casual sense, always worked for myself, naturally looked for solutions & spotted patterns to advance into opportunities, knew my own skills were more important than what my teachers taught me, felt good about being the outsider, etc.

Still, discovering TMF and Unscripted filled in the gaps in my knowledge and being honest that it needed to be applied to my life in general lead to a year or so of focus and determination unpicking my own thoughts and self-image, and utilising my skills of spotting patterns and solving problems ON MYSELF. And that was after many months of unpicking bad decisions made in fear that took me away from the true freedom I desire.

Just thought that was worth being said as we see so many people here struggling with the mindset side of things! Don't neglect your mind, you only have one.

If you have a good mindset and put in the work, this forum is proof TMF gives you the knowledge necessary to be on your way to growing a business that fulfils the CENTS commandments and helps you live an unscripted life (even within a year).

24 years ago, I started. 21 years ago, I quit my job. Took on a brief part time stint to learn how to do commercial real estate leasing.

Other than that, I have not worked for anyone for the entire time. Have run a few successful businesses and one failed one.

Could have probably quit my job after one year but I had a fantastic and challenging job with decent pay.
