How much does a Lamborghini really cost?

The 2015 price tag according to Car and Driver is $400,995. Great! Let me go down to the ATM and make a withdrawal.

What if I'm being serious? What if you actually do have $400,995 in disposable income to drive down to the Lamborghini dealership right now and actually buy this car?

How did that money get in your bank account to begin with?

You just sold your internet business to a hedge fund.

Ahh, the day every aspiring internet entrepreneur has been waiting for. It all started with an idea, and a desire to make a lot of money, and this is where it led you: A series of checks written fora grand total of $23,850,150 and deposited into your bank account.

Imagine the look on the bank teller's face when you go to deposit those checks.

Can you not do anything except stare back at her with a goofy smile of bliss that stretches ear to ear, almost plastered on your face.

Your face turning red from the excitement of accomplishing the unaccomplishable.

Do you ever think about what you're going to do next?

I mean, you have the money, you have the cars, and you have the freedom.

I actually don't know what I'd do. I'd probably drive the car to get some pizza, hoping nobody scratches the car in the parking lot, before I go home and go to sleep.

I could travel the world, but then my Lamborghini would be sitting in the garage for an entire year.

Do I even want the car anymore, now that I could afford to have it?

These are all good questions, but there is still one question left unanswered...

What does all of this actually cost?

That money didn't come from nowhere.

November 14th, 2011 - I decided I wanted to become a millionaire.

At the beginning, it all starts with a dream. A dream of a better life, with the inspiration and motivation to get started.

Didn't it seem just so...easy, when you were first getting started?
  • Code that website, and make millions of dollars.
  • Create that app, and watch the money roll in.
  • Build that empire....but without putting in the world to actually get there.
The work? The frustration? The pain? The sacrifices?

No...you got me all wrong, that's not part of my plan. I want the Lamborghini, I don't want pain or frustration. Who would want any of that?

I had no clue what I was doing in the beginning, but I didn't let that stop me.

This is where you want to give up, but what happens if you keep pushing forward?

I spent four months teaching myself how to code: HTML, CSS, Javascript, SQL, PHP.

My website was coded and the money didn't roll in.

During those 4 months, I stayed up well past the sunrise, gained 30 pounds because my diet consisted of fast food and cheetos to numb the pain of getting no results.

I didn't leave my house except to go to the store and buy food, I went on one date and the girl was creeped out because I lost most of my social skills coding in front of a computer for 20 hours a day.

I began suffering from sleep paralysis, where I would wake up, and not be able to move for a few minutes while half my my mind is still in dream world (my eyes were open, but I was still in a dream).

20 hours a day...in front of a computer.

Nobody signed up, and I just spent 4 months of my life building something nobody wanted.

Four months, 20 hours a day...not a single dollar. Not a single user.

This is where you want to give up, but what happens if you keep pushing forward?

Down to $250 in my bank account and on the edge of breaking, I needed a change.

I drove 2,000 miles across the country to Scottsdale, Arizona because I read about a lot of millionaires living there.

The mentorship I was expecting to be handed to me was replaced by the 5 a.m. shift at a customer service job that I hated.

At the end of work everyday, I loaded my self up with pre-workout energy supplements, killed it at the gym, until I went home and passed out on my bed until 3 in the morning, only to repeat the cycle again.

While my friends went out on the weekends, I read books on marketing and business. I stayed in for 2 years in a row for virtually every weekend...while my friends were getting drunk, partying, going to music festivals, and going to Vegas or San Diego to have fun in the moment.

I worked 7 days a week for 2 years straight..without getting paid a dime for most of it.

After 18 months, I made my first dollar online.

I made a few thousand dollars in the upcoming months, only to see that slowly fade away, until I was back to making nothing.

Yes, still working on the weekends for "free".

This is where you want to give up, but
what happens if you keep pushing forward?

I then proceeded to dump my entire savings into advertising for my business, and lost it all.

One month, I had $14 in my bank account after my rent check just cleared. I kept pushing forward...

This is where you want to give up, but what happens if you keep pushing forward?

In 2013, I then decided to chase the money, and the hot thing was promoting "less-than-perfect" affiliate products on sites that will not be mentioned here.

I lost all my money again, and barely made rent this time.

And my Facebook advertising account got banned as a result of this.

This is where you want to give up, but what happens if you keep pushing forward?

Ok, so my money is gone, my friends have left me behind, I have no advertising account anymore, and I've failed multiple times for two years straight.

I get a promotion at my day job to the corporate office, and decide to build some apps in my spare time.

Still exhausted after my even longer work days at the corporate office, I spend 4 hours each night and every weekend building my app business.

My apps get rejected...

This is where you want to give up, but what happens if you keep pushing forward?

I keep pushing forward. My apps were rejected 16 times in a row for five months straight.

This is where you want to give up, but what happens if you keep pushing forward?

I kept pushing forward, my apps were approved, I made $10,000 in one month a couple of months later, quit my job, and then spent 6 months partying and traveling the country.

Oh, when I quit my job, it was right after I was offered a six-figure per year promotion. Most people would jump on it, but I quit....what's the best that could happen?

I was celebrating my success, I was living off of passive income, and I was on top of the world.

But what happens when you're at the top of the world?

The only direction you can go is DOWN.

My apps lost their rankings, I lost everything I built up on Christmas day 2014.

So here I am, at the age of 28, I'm forced to live in my parents house while my (old) friends are there collecting their steady paycheck every week, partying on their nights and weekends, spending all their money on weekend road trips.

This is where you want to give up, but what happens if you keep pushing forward?

I hunkered down, kept pushing forward, and finally fixed my business....and moved back across the country to put the grim reminder of where this all started, and those sleep-paralysis nights behind me.
  • In 2014, I began making $100+ per day.
  • In 2015, I crossed the threshold and made over $1,650 in one day (at my best day so far).
October 2015: Here is an excerpt out of my book that I'm writing, about The Journey....
upload_2015-12-19_13-2-17.png

and a few paragraphs later....
upload_2015-12-19_13-3-5.png

So what caused all of this and me to rush to the emergency room at 2 in the morning, only to be told that they didn't accept my health insurance?

I don't want to spoil the book, but it's a direct result of the journey I chose to take towards that goal, and a result of choosing a way of life most people give up on.

How much does a Lamborghini cost?

  • Sacrificed my nights and weekends,
  • and friends,
  • Put all my money into my business, and lost it all multiple times,
  • Had to live with my parents in 2014 at the age of 28 when I let it all crash the first time,
  • Began experiencing heart palpitations for a month straight, constant bloodshot eyes from staring at a computer screen all day,
  • Creating a business that has impacted over 900,000 people to day (yes, there's some positive to it..and the TRUE cost is helping lots of other people..but that's saved for a different post).
My journey is probably a lot easier than a lot of other people who have "made it" to their destination.

It's filled with highs, and most people never talk about the lows, but they are always there.

So the next time you ask yourself "How much does a Lamborghini cost?" and how can I afford one?

You now have your answer...The question now is, do you even still want it?

Now my questions for you...
  • Does the journey necessarily have to be rough?
  • Can you enjoy yourself in the process?
  • Is it right for you?
  • Does it really come down to what makes you happy in life where you are now, regardless of what path you choose?

Fantastic post, Andrew. I hope your health is okay now? That's some pretty scary stuff.

One thing I really liked about this post is something most will overlook.

Yes, still working on the weekends for "free".
This. The majority who hold the non-journey/slowlane mindset will cast you out as insane for initially working "for free" (thanks to our event-driven society) when, in fact, they don't realize they are doing the exact same thing with their jobs.
This video another user posted recently was a fantastic watch and there is one part in particular I really enjoyed that most just don't understand. It's at 1:24:17 for those who wish to see what I'm talking about.


Your post was something I needed to see today and I'm very happy I did. Thanks again, Andrew. +Rep

This is absolutely amazing bro, and kind of scary, I am in the same position now. A little bit more balanced though 2% of the time. Even right no im running on now sleep because I was up night coding, happens at least twice a week. Doing this for a while my self I came to realize there is a healthy obsession and unhealthy obsession. You cant enjoy your money if you're dead. Time management is KEY is all of our situations.

how much struggle they need get through
This is the thought that was playing in my mind through writing this.

Did I absolutely NEED to go through that struggle?

Looking back at that stage, if I listened to my mentors and took their advice to the letter....it would have been a much easier journey. And some of those nights I sat inside and got nothing accomplished...what if I went out once a week and enjoyed the journey a bit more?

Who knows, we are where we are now, and the experiences of our past help light the road in front of us, so we can see where we are going now.

Pain VS pleasure man. I think it was Tony Robbins who said it, MOST people change when there is pain, i'm like that also. Comes down to comfortably. Being in the streets isn't fun but when I got kicked out a couple of times I sure as hell got on my phone as quick as can I find a place to stay for the night, I hustled to find a place, mind kicked into gear. Ever though my situation wasn't a big deal AT ALL, I was simply uncomfortable with my situation so in that moment I changed it, why? Because I felt I had too. Have to learn to tap into the "Uncomfortably" even when you are comfortable, to me, that equals MASSIVE success in any area in life. But that just an example of getting kick out of house. You did the same as well in your situation.

BTW, I highly recommend listening to the Tim Ferriss Jamie Foxx podcast. It is 2.5 hours long, but Jamie talks alot of how he was raised and all the work he put in. Trust me, it's 2.5 hours and you will wish it was longer!

Pain VS pleasure man. I think it was Tony Robbins who said it, MOST people change when there is pain, i'm like that also.
This is definitely THE most powerful filters in our brain to motivate us for taking action.

Towards vs. Away

Back when I was first teaching this, I came across a study that looked at the filters of millionaires and successful people. And the most interesting thing they came across is that the overwhelming majority of successful people move towards pleasure, while less successful people move away from pain.

So by shifting our filters by determining EXACTLY what we want, and running towards that goal, we will get there faster.

Example with sales calls:
  • I want to avoid rejection, so I'll put off calling.
  • I want to get the sale, so I'll push through anything to get there.
Which filter will get us there faster?

The second one of course. Well moving towards pleasure and away from pain are interchangeable when you think about it. The happy medium is being "content" or well the slow lane to put it in @mjdemarco's words. But I see where you are coming from, to simplify it "A positive uplifting goal' that they want to reach.

Maybe this is just me but...I have been into self help for 7 years. I LOVE IT, from experience you can't obsess over it. Especially when trying to make money(Unless you are selling your knowledge, different story). You need Stream-Line focus as I put it on one of my blog posts. I came to realize the more obsessed you are about positive thinking, XYZ, most of those people the ones you see on Instagram, are dreamers. Funny though I saw a quote on there which is very true. Went something like this - "You should be so busy with yourself that you dont have time to criticize others" -- Apply it to capital. "You should be so busy taking the steps needed to reach financial freedom you don't have time to let anything else clutter your brain" - Yes I just made that up but I think it holds some merit. FYI - This is not to be applied to books on lets say time management, business, economics..etc

All I can think after reading that is.... when's this damn book gonna be finished?

When each word flows into the next as smoothly as the ripples in the ocean flow into infinity. ;)

Translation: "ready" is not something you can put a time stamp on with a book like this :)

Plus: Getting my first business ready for sale + the training program I'm releasing to market soon took precedence over the book.

I had the pleasure of spending more time with @AndrewNC this year and he discussed his writing process and thoughts for his book with me.

There is no doubt this will be a very powerful and inspirational/motivational book when it comes out so watch out. :)

(and...damn, that is one fine Lambo, lol!) Do want.

Yeah exactly bad feelings fear and pain motivate us. Why do u think human beings dont feel good all the time?

Imagine having so much serotonin that it feels as if you are on xtc all the time? Result = you wont do shit.

On topic: andrew, what ended up happening? You made it in the end?

Its amazing that u didnt give up. If I noticed my efforts would lead nowhere I would feel bad think very long and deep and make a strategic change. If my efforts then again and again would fail I would accept that Im not good and go slowlane. I wouldnt mind being dumb, I think its important what you do with the cards that u are dealt. The cards themselves arent important imo.

For "in the end" and "did I make it", I began to live from the point of view that the journey IS the destination. There is no good or bad, there is simply an experience, and how you choose to interpret the experience is up to the individual.

I've made $1,650 in a day, I haven't "had to" work in 18 months, I've seen the entire country. I've impacted the lives of 900,000 people.

I've had days where I lost money, months on end with no "real" income.

But the whole thing is a journey. There is no end. Enjoy it

Ok cool, sounds like it will appeal to the masses. Also I think you wrote it very well. Engaging and you want to keep reading.

When is it done and for what price are you selling?

BTW, I highly recommend listening to the Tim Ferriss Jamie Foxx podcast. It is 2.5 hours long, but Jamie talks alot of how he was raised and all the work he put in. Trust me, it's 2.5 hours and you will wish it was longer!
Just listened to the whole thing. Definitely agree on wanting more. I love the similarities between the journeys across different areas of life.

Thanks for the post! The fact that you kept pushing through when things became that difficult and made it out the other side succeeding is a big inspiration. Also definitely excited for this book to come out.

THANK YOU, I think this is one of the few forums where we should be open and honest about the struggle behind success.

YES, it is possible to make it without all your ups and downs, but what you are describing is very normal..

I had a big problem comparing myself to people who ride the sidewalk, they have 60-100K jobs and I am sitting here, working all the time for 30k/year salary... if I had just looked at the numbers I had quit long time ago, but instead I look at this struggle as the entry price we pay to enter the fastlane.

Very good post man, rep +

Great post Andrew, this is exactly what I'm going through RIGHT NOW.

1. Does the journey necessarily have to be rough?

Yes, and no. I think we all start at different points in the journey. Some people have more opportunities when they're born than others.

2. Can you enjoy yourself in the process?

Yes. I think you can. It has been a very enjoyable process for me; especially seeing the results.

3. Is it right for you?

Only you can answer this.

4. Does it really come down to what makes you happy in life where you are now, regardless of what path you choose?

Yes.
