INTRO Getting Unstuck

I don't remember how I stumbled onto this forum. I guess I was searching for direction, a way to get unstuck.

I've now read the free previews of both of MJ's books and I plan to download and read Unscripted today. It looks like the first 2/3 of the book covers what I discovered years ago -- we've all been sold a bill of goods about the way life works. Rarely does someone get rich working for someone else.

And so I started years ago studying how to invest in real estate using other people's money, launching various service businesses, but somehow I never achieved much success. I never managed to unlock the key to financial independence. At best, I've always just gotten by.

Now I find myself -- eight years before retirement age -- still struggling to make ends meet. My biggest fear is ending up homeless on the street in my old age, unable to support myself. I know I'm talented and creative. I've survived a world of hardships that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. I've had very little support in life -- financially or emotionally. What I lack is tenacity and self-confidence to believe in myself and whatever idea I'm pursuing at the moment. (Because my habit is to drop the project when the next inspirational idea comes along.)

That's why I'm here -- for moral support and encouragement, for knowledge and inspiration. Two heads are better than one. Dozens even better.

Thanks, everyone.

Welcome to the forum.

You can make it. Read the books, lay down a plan and just take actions. Don't be an action faker because it's not a pretty picture to be honest.

Don't fall into the trap of telling yourself you lack this, that, etc. It's poison. You can figure it out. Tenacity, self-confidence, etc. are habits & muscles you build over time--by taking action over & over, and adjusting & improving.

You don't have to build the next Amazon or SpaceX.

Do an inventory of your experience, knowledge, expertise, & skills. Decide what the most valuable of those are to others, then choose a market to target who'd benefit from your experience & who are able & willing to pay for help.

This forum is a goldmine of help. You're not in this alone, and you can do this.
