    I wish MJ had ruined my life 15 years ago.

    My mom asked me what I was doing one evening a few years back. I said I was watching the Bulls game. She asked how much they were paying me to watch the game. I immediately turned it off.

    What you're saying, without punctuation, is that you'd rather watch the Super Bowl than work towards your future. Not MJ's fault. That's your choice.

    don't laugh.

    i was employed for years in many jobs in insurance companies.

    there are only women in these jobs. At least in France.

    this was a nightmare.

    imagine trying to focus on your PC screen while women arround you are talking and laughing out loud about absurb women things : sex; clothes, the next bad boy on TV

    this is insane. that's why i have never been able to keep a job in these conditions

    the bosses fired me before i shut the door

    If you had used your example of the Super Bowl and view it as an opportunity, you could have sponsored a Super Bowl Square Contest and accepted donations in exchange for a square - you could have denounced that a percentage of those squares would be taken by the house (You) and regardless of the outcome of the game (which you stated you don't care about), you could have made a profit, while spending time with your family.

    He deprived me of any shot at being a career victim. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!!!???

    • Being accountable to myself
    • AdDinG Value BEforE DemAnDing SomeThINg iN RETURN!!
    EDIT: THAT MONSTER!

    this is interesting from my european point of view

    you american guys are very aware of money, power, success

    you have the right to bear guns, criticize people on TV and so on

    we can't do any of these things easily in France . we can't say what we want, we can't buy guns like we want. we are over protected by the matrix. we are destroyed by taxes when we launch businesses

    and so on.


    so how will you use your freedom ?

    this is funny that a french guy like me is searching for the truth , while you the free guys don't care about destroying the BS in your american society

    while you have the possibility

    this is beyond my IQ and understanding

    Good question. A kind that gets me going...

    Actually I'm pretty involved in freedom and "truth spreading" things on the Internet. Defining the nature would probably make the staff mad, since it would go into politics and spirituality.

    For now, I've been giving free branding and outreach help to people I think have a message to spread and are committed to pushing their cart. Also, I've helped them with their merchandising since it is atrocious.

    Some of these efforts have had significant results, others have been learning experiences.

    That is about 15% of my time, the rest is focused on my own venture and last few clients.

    Why would I do this? Well, I don't see the reason to do anything but: 1. Reach for my highest potential. 2. Avoid entanglements from trampling others. 3. Trade value for value with people who understand how to reciprocate.

    Death/Intimidation doesn't faze me like it used to. Living for a defined purpose has minimized the chance of regrets ever flashing before my eyes. The reality is they don't even approve of themselves, so why'd I want them to approve of me? Their approval is worth less than fiat.

    Amen. France is a statist, collectivist country I had to run away from. No society is perfect but France felt like a prison when I was younger because of everything you say.

    I find it hard to believe that all of the people making negative comments or trying to "guide" Tanish to make changes in her life don't recognize the sarcasm/irony in the original post. This was not literal. It's a play on words where "changed" is being replaced by "ruined" to show that she looks at the world differently and doesn't enjoy the things she used to because she now realizes how fruitless they were.

    Ha, interesting topic. I will say that sometimes ignorance is bliss but there's no going back once you see it for what it is.

    Not sure about that which is why she might have received that response.

    Tanisha has been banned 4 times. With users knowing her history of posts (and bannings) there was a chance she was serious. Either way, I think people were voicing frustration with her starting threads about nothing, using the forum as a kinda of chat-box.

    Ahhh...well that definitely changes the perspective.

    I think I am sympathetic because I could see myself writing something similar in tongue-in-cheek. My perspective on life has dramatically changed. Things I once found enjoyable now do seem to be a waste of time and more impediments to my progress. "Ruining" my life would be such over the top sarcasm as I can honestly say you, and many of the members of this forum have forever dramatically improved my outlook on things and my attitude. I can't thank you enough.

    Well, if MJ hadn't written TFL and Unscripted, I wouldn't be about to quit 3 days in to a 'pay the bills job' because I'm wasting time that could be used to start making money for me and building a business that actually helps people.

    Once you've seen the slowlane and what it does (or doesn't do), I suspect there is no (happy) way to turn back...

    I just hope you know what you are responsible for! :)

    Yikes, well I'm not sure I like that I'm taking enjoyment away from people.

    Maybe I am ruining lives!? :jawdrop:

    Not in the least! I think I've just found a more productive way to enjoy life.

    If MJ "ruins" my life this way, I will be grateful. There is so much of this I "saw" and felt was wrong but couldn't put my finger on it. MJ puts it right out there for me to put my finger on in his books. Thank you, MJ, for "ruining" my life. MY eyes have been open and now my mind recognizes what I was seeing. I am SOOOOOOOOO grateful!!

    So you don't engage in any type of past time or entertainment unless it also makes you money?

    What do you do with the money?
