Hi there,

I've recently joined the forum and even that I've already participated in some threads, I would like to introduce myself here.

My name is Tomas and I am 24. I am a fourth-year law student from the Czech Republic. Earlier in my life, I was a dedicated athlete for about ten years while about two years of being professional.

When I started to attend college (almost four years ago) I've fully realized that my athletics career would never provide me a living. Here my thinking about the future really started. During those four years, I was working as a paralegal in both international and national prestigious Law Offices and for a while also as a corporate paralegal in the company that produces video games.

I've quickly realized, that if I want to be a really good attorney (I always aimed to be better than good at what I do), I would need to sacrifice almost everything else... So on one hand, I wanted the wealth the best attorneys had but I did not want to sacrifice what is necessary for being one. When I was working long hours (usually starting at 8 or 9 am and going home usually around 9 or 10 pm) I was asking the same question again and again - What am I doing wrong? Should I completely sacrifice my personal life etc. for about 10-20 years if I want to be really successful?

Fortunately, I was interested in self-development since high school. Maybe thanks to the fact that I was once recruited into the multi-level business (even that it was crap in general)... So I was reading a lot of books. Once I discovered TMF, it was at the same time I was working at the Law Office as mentioned above, and it almost instantly filled me with a hope that there is another way. Quickly after that, I decided to quit that damn job and to pursue what I really want.

I wasn't feeling ready to build my own Fastlane right away (lack of confidence?) so I started to work as a remote paralegal for my friend who is an attorney and I am still doing that now. I'm still far from where I want to be, but I feel that it's getting better every day. Thanks to the fact that my job is completely remote, I have more time and energy to think about my own business and talk about it with various people.

Recently I've come up with an idea of a business that is fully meeting four CENTS commandments while I am still working on to discover if it meets the commandment of need.

By the time I am getting more and more confident, that I am able to create something big that would serve thousands or millions of people.

Maybe I will, maybe I won't, anyway, I am decided to challenge myself and go all in.
