Hi everyone. My name is Jakub, I come from Poland and I live in Norway. Since you are encouraging to present your story, let me take advantage of this moment and shed the burden of the past, as the first step on my Fast Lane map of course
Let me divide my story into stages:
Let me divide my story into stages:
- Stage 1: My life began when I was 16 years old, I was a fat kid, passionately playing computer games and dreaming of an IT career (I probably meant more playing games). One day I felt that the virtual world gives no sense of freedom. I was so hungry for a sense of freedom, to meet my need to go out, that I started cycling. It turned out that I was quite an ambitious boy, I bought a few books like "Bible of mountain biking" and started my training and education, which was supposed to make my dreams come true through passion. Unfortunately, life quickly verified my potential, I suffered a lot of injuries caused by a lack of physical preparation and eventually I had to forget about the athlete's career.
- Stage 2: Limited in the world of sport, I wanted to take the chains off and feel free again. I decided that I would take care of my rehabilitation, reduce the intensity of training and increase the volume, i.e. I would travel by bike! Then at the age of about 19 I saved money on bicycle panniers and set off on a monthly bike ride from Poland to the Black Sea in Romania and back. I was free as a bird for the first time in my life. After covering about 5000 kilometers on my own, I immediately began to dream about the next trip. But then the end of high school was approaching and I had to choose the further path of my education. Work and study.
- Stage 3: First job and field of study selected with the help of my father. Less than a year has passed and I felt a lack of passion, fetters of lack of freedom. I quit my current field of study and work, changed my place of residence and chose a field that interested me in "Physiotherapy". As an inept athlete, I had a lot of knowledge in this area and felt strong. My father's dissatisfaction was a terrible experience, but for freedom I was able to do anything.
- Stage 4: In college I met the love of my life, my current wife and the other half. Studies were a passion for me, but also a nightmare, then I met the resistance to my ambitions from less ambitious colleagues and the education system. I hated people subordinated to systems. Fortunately, I finished my studies with good grades, in the meantime I had wonderful moments with my wife and my foster daughter. After graduation, I was shocked at how slave the prospect of working in my profession in my country is. It seemed to me mistakenly that without proper capital I would never be able to afford my own rehabilitation room. I felt a prisoner of a weak system.
- Stage 5: I've been taught my whole life that Slow Lane is the only safe way to freedom. I could not imagine being a slave to the Polish system. My wife and I collected some money by working hard and went to Norway, to a richer country, with a more developed culture, hoping for a lighter slave life. Norway turned out to be a great place, full of cheerful and not evaluating people. I started working as a masseur / therapist in a private health clinic, I was enchanted by my work and the fast pace at which I began to develop. Dozens of grateful patients, more and more skills that resulted from week to week. In the meantime my son was born. I even learned to speak Norwegian well in just 2 years of work, for which I have been praising so far. And then my nightmare began in small steps.
- Stage 6: After 1.5 years of work as a therapist, I wanted to develop further, but without Slow Lane, I wanted to take control of my business. Over the past year I have suffered from severe migraine with aura (cosmic headaches, depression, vomiting, fainting). I thought that migraine is caused by post-accident complications (head trauma) and stress I experienced bringing my family abroad. Then I began to think intensively about changes, I made my training plans, Slow Lane's career plans also appeared, I tried to push the clinic's management board for better marketing (their business plan is the slowest version of Slow Lane). All my actions led me to more and more depression and migraines. Only my wonderful children and wife meant that I had the strength not to give up. And then the coronavirus pandemic began, I temporarily lost my right to practice and my debts began to grow. I realized that I have no control over my life because I'm just a pawn in some not very polished game. At this point, I began to think intensively again about the revolution and on the road to freedom. I decided to invest in an e-book reader and stimulate my brain with motivational literature to get out of depression and find the right path. Fortunately, as the first book I chose "The Millionaire Fastlane" and after just a few chapters of the book, I felt that my life was making sense. Before I finished reading the book, I realized my wife's little dream and created her website for running a blog, thus learning online business tools. Since I read the book, I have almost no headache and I feel so much vital energy that I am again a better father, husband and myself. I feel that Fast Lane has opened my eyes, that freedom is at hand, you just need to get out of it and that's my first step, forum account
