    What works for me is calling myself out on my excuses or reason not to do something. It helps me determine if I am just being lazy and excusing myself or whether it is actually a problem which I need to address.

    To add to the thread...

    'I'm going to start a business, it's just... it just doesn't feel like the right time. It's not dramatic like a Hollywood film, so I'll wait. My time will come. ;):fistbump:':praise:

    Was going to post that one. Here's another one that goes along the same lines:

    Step 1: "I need a good CRM before I go to market. My thing is gonna be real big and I don't want poor customer management to screw all my efforts. I'll drop a post on forums to get recommended CRMs."

    Step 2: "Those people on that forum are so helpful, I've finally got a list of 10 CRMs that could help. Let's not waste time, I'll study each of them in depth so that I can make the best decision."

    Step 3: "Dammit. CRMs 4 and 7 looked really cool but they don't have that feature XYZ that I absolutely need if I want my business to grow as expected. "

    Step 4: Go back to Step 1 or jump to Step 1' --> "I need top notch web hosting for my future website..."

    To what extent is thinking of a good name action faking?

    This is a something I'm facing. Every name I can think of is taken and doing something similar. Driving me nuts.

    The supplement market is too saturated

    Amazon is too saturated

    Facebook is dead

    Direct mail is dead

    Newspaper ads are dead

    ... I have to wait until I find the NEXT Amazon-like opportunity

    The path is to complicated to walk so its better to feed the brain with escapism. To old & living in the wrong generation.

    1.Find ppl to encourage on a forum/fb group/insta feed.
    2. Encourage them to follow their dreams; make sure to put your whole soul into this so they can FEEL the love.
    3. Recheck your post for grammatical errors at least twice.
    4. Watch your likes skyrocket so you feel better while you’re not working to make your dreams come true.
    5. Realize you’re action faking.
    6. Feel really, really bad.

    Repeat steps 1-5

    I literally just figured this out yesterday. Fml. FML!! I’m not encouraging anybody anymore. *girl pout
    Right after I check insta. Sigh.

    Huh???

    Yeah I know where this came from...

    You guys know there's such thing as 'importing', right?

    Well....this post came too late for me.

    To quote Dan Pena, 'Love ain't gonna get the job done!'

    • being a gym member but showing up only once a month (I wonder what these people are thinking?)

    • three burgers, double fries and hey a DIET COKE

    • buying new sportswear because you can't start without the "perfect" equipment

    • read the bible/koran, go to church but treat other people like sh*t

    I don't have any project work right now, but I better stop prospecting so that I don't get 500 people asking me to work with them at once.
