    Most of the ones I have posted are from personal experience. The reason these flow so easy is because we have ALL been there.

    Some easy motivation though for you. MJ has paraphrased the concept of working today like nobody works so you can live in the future like nobody can live.

    I was talking with one of my kids today. The days all somewhat blend together now. "Vacation days" don't mean much when every day you can literally do what ever you want. So... sacrifice now. Nobody will understand it. Five years from now, when you can do what ever you want because you sacrificed while they were playing... they still won't get it.

    I rent office space from Regus. The parking lot is EMPTY today.

    Do you have today off your 9-5 job? Then you sure the f*ck better be working on your own freedom. If you are watching bowl games, nursing your hangover, and taking the day off (even though you are not financially free) you might be a slowlaner.

    Change it.

    Remember my comment about birthdays?

    It's no coincidence that I joined this forum just a few days after my 35th birthday.

    I'm guilty of at least half of these examples.

    But I've been in the office since 5:45am!

    I'm starting a new company to produce product X. I need the same fabrication equipment/software/space/etc. that the most luxurious, well-known, and established manufacturer in this segment uses, or I can't get started.

    Mine are slightly different angle, all heard from startup friends:


    "I'm trying to take over the world."

    "See those girls!? Screw them. When I have my megamillion yacht I'll have 20 of those!"

    "We're on the verge, just looking for more investment!" (5 years now)




    Personal:

    "I worked too much, I need to relax now." (when not tired)

    or "I should enjoy this nice day before I work, it's only logical to work later" - fail.



    Or........

    wait for it...


    "Rich people probably don't have it that good either. So I'll be able to travel and buy sh*t, is that all there is!?"

    I don't want to bother them too much with email or phone calls. A lot of them might think I'm being too rude, and that can hinder my reputation. Gotta plan long term with this stuff man!
