    Guys sorry again but I find it hard to make any decision now. I'm really stressed, can't sleep at night.

    I don't know which direction to take for my life.

    I think it will pass.

    Hey guys sorry again but I'd like to ask you what is the best way to make a definitive decision ?

    I see I cannot make anyone for now.

    I'm really stuck, how can I get from undecision to decision?

    Thanks.

    @alan3wilson

    I am going to be blunt with you buddy, but take it from a position of trying to push you forward and not trying to coddle you so much.

    The one thing I notice right away about you is your confidence level. You are looking to a group of strangers (good-looking ones ;)) to help you make this decision. You need to take control of your life and start making decisions without the influence of your parents/friends or an online community talking in your ear.

    I think the most logical decision is to stay in school and complete this thing. It sounds like you can get some skills out of this educational path if you complete it. However at the same time as quite a few people have recommended, start grinding at either a business idea or get yourself out there and get a job that have some sales and marketing skills.

    Have you read Unscripted yet? I find that there are a lot of valuable pieces in that second book written by MJ that really helped me break out of some negative funks and get me on the right path to making positive changes in my own life.

    All the best man, we want you to succeed.

    Thanks a lot. Yeah need to improve my confidence and mindset.

    I know that my main problem is fear about what other people think about me.

    And also I need much time (at least 2 years) to complete my bachelor. Maybe it would take too much time even if I start again from zero a new college degree, I think it's not worth that.

    I second this. Two of the things schooling [should] teaches you are:
    - how to learn, and
    - the skill for which you've signed up

    If you want to be world class, you're going to need both. Read, listen, and identify problems in your field.

    If anything, this can be your test to both take action and finish what you started, which will be equally important in your entrepreneurial pursuits.

    I've just checked where I live (europe) and I should start again from zero if I go for an economics degree.
    Also there are some subjects I don't care like governance or political economics lol and I don't see how these subjects will create value in the marketplace.

    I think I should just stick with computer science and finish it even If I don't like it at all. It gives me good skills for the market and If I want to work in marketing and sales I could go for ICT sector.

    What do you think guys of my logical decision now?

    *Also I've realized that I'm not enjoying coding in classes because I still didn't get any success with it, so I should build some app

    Guys something strange happened:

    I fixed a website for a "client", I've just redirected an url with html code. The code worked and I felt like a God!
    Now I think programming is all about practice and it's a valuable skills.
    I think I didn't see success in programming before that's why I got some doubts, maybe I should just finish Computer science degree even while I'm working part-time without dropping out or changing major.

    I've made 20$ in 20 minutes lol the easiest money of my life.

    It is good to do what you love. That is correct. But you have gone so far to just let it go just like that. Hang in there. It's just one more academic session. Sometimes we are blinded by vain pursue of happiness but that is what actually keeps us from being genuinely happy.

    Can you find another client? This could work out for you (you'll learn a lot) while you "sort" things out. Lol.

    You can start by asking your client for referrals.

    Too easy if you can help people right?

    You're deathly afraid of what people think of you...thus, my calculations say:

    1. You've probably never done sales [as you need 0 shits about what people think]...ergo
    2. You've never started a business

    The honest truth:
    Someone with your current mindset, lack of sales skills, and lack of entrepreneurship experience...
    It's going to take many years before you're working full-time for yourself. That's not what you want to hear on a forum like this. Read other stories on here. Read MJs. ​

    ---> You need a year to simply build up confidence and get a much better mindset
    ---> You need another year (or two) to 'master' sales and marketing
    ---> You're obviously a young kid (21 or less)...meaning you need more time to mature and get disciplined

    STEPS TO TAKE:
    1. Build your mindset now (read, read, read)
    2. Learn marketing, sales and copy while you go to school
    3. Graduate. Get a well-paying job. Work on your dream until 2am. Save your money.

    GOOD NEWS:
    You're a freakin' young bull. Stop reading about all these '18-year old' billionaires. Running a business is a LONG GAME. You have plenty of time. You need to break down that time into daily habits. Incremental improvements each day.

    Thanks for the advice , really helpful.

    I've just sold sometimes used items on craiglist/ebay.
    Could I ask you how did you overcome your fear of caring what people think?

    I know I need to improve my mindset really.

    So you are saying to finish computer science without thinking other possibilities or changing major ?
