Hi Fastlaners,
I am a college student from India about to graduate in 9 months. Currently planning and building my venture, I will be freelancing.
People around me accepting mediocrity to such an extent that they know they won't be happy or live their dreams they are actively looking for 6 to 8 lakh INR ( 8,167 - 10889 USD)job.
Most of them are highly skilled in some technology. when talking to them I lose my UNSCRIPTED mindset and want to start looking for a mediocre job.

now here is the thing, I know I will hate my job (6 months internship experience) and I know I can make more money just simply by freelancing as I was approached with an offer of 9+ lakh and the timeline was 3 to 4 months which is more than what I will make in the job in 1/4 the time.

so my question is
How to stay unscripted?

I understand this. What's really helped me, and may almost seem counter-intuitive, is get to a point where you brainwash yourself so much into "unscripted" that nothing else is even an option. At 22, I am surrounded by many mediocre people. Dropping out of college though really helped get away from a lot of it(not saying you should).

It's part ego, part brainwashing. But after over a year and a half of consuming tons of podcasts, videos, books, and this forum, a job is not anywhere on the radar. When a "mediocre" person starts talking about their ideas that go against what I believe, I simply smile and say to myself in my mind "do not listen to this". No need to be outwardly disrespectful, but important to be intentional in your mind about what you will let in.

A very successful guy once told me, "the most important thing you can do is audit what you allow into your mind. Envision 2 bouncers standing at the "door of your mind" and they dictate what you will allow in and what you will not".
