Hello the world of Fastlaners!

I have come here in February after having finished reading the MFL, full of enthusiasm and motivation :).

Lately, since I haven't been on the forum I received a reminder by e-mail, which I really appreciated.

I am in the middle of my thoughts, an habit.

My entrepreneurship idea is linked to well-being. Basically I would like to help people. I have helped myself. But to a certain degree. I don't meet many of my needs.

So I am writing this post because why not. I don't know if it's a good idea, but I think asking for help is a good thing. I am not sure if it's too vague though.

Well, I have some questions, maybe some people have ideas about them.

1) I would love to help people. But can I help people if I haven't completely managed to help myself?!

2) It's linked. Can I help myself by helping people? Would it make sense and be effective for people?

3) The other day someone told me that "No, not everybody need well-being", that I need to ask people what they need about well-being and only start a business when I have answers. It makes sense and it's what I have read in MJ's book. But to me we are all humans and well-being seems to me universal.

--> So do you need something regarding your well-being?

Also I have read some posts and I really enjoyed them. I would love to be part of this community and get to know people. But knowing myself reading too much and participating too much on these forums would be an escape at a time when I STRONGLY need to ACT.

Moreover I am reading multiple books (various subjects) and in all these ideas, which I find very interesting and inspiring, I feel uncertain of what to think.

Thanks for having read my post.

Hey there! The post seems a little scattered but I'll try my best to help.

From my (very limited) experience, when I help others, this helps me in return by making me feel accomplished and good about helping others.

MJ mentions many times that the beauty is in the process. The process of helping others is an awesome thing.

Good luck to you!

Thanks Andy for your reply!

It helps that you talk about the PROCESS and the beauty in it. Yes, I need to focus on that, ACT and adapt.
