Hello guys and gals.My life was all about playstation,sleeping,chatting endlessly online,TV(well not reality tv shows,I would never do that*laughs*)...and so on.This went on for years.So one day... my mum thinks my life needs a reboot and gives me a book(which most of you know) as "think and grow rich" by napoleon hill.As I read,I experienced for the first time in my life what they(i have no idea who "they" are) call "mental masturbation".While I was a little bit inspired,it didn't just click.This gave birth to an endless hunger to find that "something"(be it a book,article,magazine...whatever) that would click when it came to the matter of money.Then I asked mum if she had another book.And yes she did...

Guess...nah.. Try again..oops...one more time...Ok,the next guy who came in is widely known as George Samuel Clason,author of "The poorest man in Babylon"(oops sorry the "richest")excuse me while I laugh.I'm back,and once again I experienced the masturbation.Only this time, it was more ridiculous.I said to myself that only an idiot would follow the rules in book(i felt this in my gut).Then I asked my mum for another,and guess what..you got it right,she had another.

I can't really remember the name of crappy book.While it was a good read at first,stuff like "make sure you do what you love"(not that this can't make you rich),invest in the stock market,etc began to pop up.It was right there I knew it was "crappy"(like I said earlier),but the hunger for the "right click" only grew.But I didn't give up.This time I didn't ask mum for more books,I assumed she might give me crappy books.So I went online yet again..Guess who I ran into?

OK.Let me give you a hint.He has two dads, one rich,one poor(Get it now?).While the book was amazing(to an extent),some(if not many) parts did not just feel right,so it didn't just click.Feeling frustrated and unsatisfied,I still didn't give up,so I kept researching online(do you notice how the desire to be rich is intoxicating?).

Finally.I stumble upon a book(well let's say a book in a TEXT form) from the internet archieves website called "MILLIONAIRE FASTLANE " by mj demarco.My first reaction was "Oh my goshh",seriously?,isn't this guy one of those "get rich fast" authors??...Then I said to myself..what have I got to lose?(I had a lot to lose if I didn't read this book)...and finally I heard the "CLICK",I couldn't be more thankful for this book.

After several months of surfing through this forum and finally reading the "UNSCRIPTED "...I am here to officially join like minded people(like you reading this),in order to learn, grow,take action,provide value and change the trajectory of my life.My name is Paul(you could call me Kenny if you like) and I'm just 19 years old.Nice to meet you all.Thanks for reading this.

Hi Paul welcome. I also new..You have a nice writing style.
I went to the 2 Dads seminar in Perth around about 1999/2000 and chatted to Mr. Kiyosaki at the urinal during the break. I bought his Cashflow game but didn't have anyone to play it with. He went on to promote his mate John Burley and I left feeling but not realising this is how they mostly operate. MJ speaks the truth and I have witnessed his assertions which made his books ( I want to say resonate but mj will fkn hate it lol) so identifiable. I have spent money on training courses that by the time you read them they are out of date ,which is of course the whole idea. Sinister Lex has posted stuff I wish I'd heard 20 year's ago. That man is so far ahead of this game.Both MJ and SinisterLex that is.

Best advice I can offer is that you do your own research on here and spend time reading SinisterLex Gold threads, the most recent are absolutely worthy of Goldplus status.. Go search and enjoy buddy. There is so much here for any endeavour you are interested in following.

No MJ, I would never do such a nasty thing.I simply read your book in the library.I actually feel bad that you think I'm a thief or something like that.I wasn't raised that way and I can't remember the last time I took something that wasn't mine(honestly!).I'm sorry if you got the wrong message from my thread.Your books are probably two of the most valuable books on the planet amongst others.A person who steals them should probably have his/her head on a pike(just kidding!).I hope you understand me now.Are we OK now?

Yes, I said that more in jest, than being serious. We're good!

@Kennypaul Welcome to the forum. You'll find it very enlightening just like MJ's books. I wish you the best and hope to see posts about your successes (and failures since that's how we learn).
