    the first time I laid my eyes on Fastlane book I couldn't blink until I finished the first three chapters and within less than ten days I was finished with the whole book and started rereading it Until I got Unscripted , I started thinking and dreaming of my future business and my retirement plan at age 30 and everything is so cool and things are going great am about to launch my first MVP in the next week and we will see how things will go from then .

    I see people here in this forum with a highly fired up souls and I can understand and relate but what I do not understand Is how can someone Not be !

    I gave my friend Fastlane book a month ago and she didn't even finished the introduction part !
    I keep nagging on her but she seems just not interested -no offence MJ -

    So what's the issue ?! Is there really special genes within people to seek more in life reach autonomy and release their scripted mind or maybe some life events is responsible for making us so !?

    I don't know how feminist this board is so I will disclaim the following with "no offense intended" but from an evolutionary point of view, males are bred to hunt, to gather, to provide. Females are bred to give birth to new generations of the family. That is evolutionary psychology at its barest.

    So of course it is in our instinctual interest to learn how to hunt or gather or in this case make money, and it is not in females interest. Now society has changed and now they scream "women are better than men at everything" but that is against instinct and in my experience, instinct always wins.

    TLDR she didn't read it because as a female she doesn't care.

    note - there are many great female businesswomen and entreprenurs, and there are many not-great male ones. But on the flip side, 97% of alimony divorce cases (having to pay the partner a fixed sum for the rest of her life because she is "used to being rich" after you are divorced) are instigated by women.

    Why Do So Few Men Get Alimony?

    There are many reasons. Some people really love their 9 to 5 jobs. Some can't delay gratification. Some may never be aware that there is another way, because the script is very strong. As you mentionned, sometimes all it takes is a FTE (defined in UNSCRIPTED) to make people look for alternative ways.

    I don't think there is a special gene - that sounds like a fixed mindset which is making excuses for why someone can't do something because they weren't born smart. (applies to many other different aspects...)

    okay good interpretation , gender always plays a big part of ones interests which will also explains why most of this forum members are males , because who would grab MJ books needs to be interested and okay females are not in all cases interested in such a content , but I gave her the book and she started reading it and still Not interested ! that's mostly what gave my nerves the shake ! who would know about the slowlane and sidewalk and still want that experience even if you are constructed to be dependent in life

    As a female, I was obsessed with the book. My husband is also of the same mindset.

    Anyway, I think it has less to do with male/female dynamics and more to do with personality type. I think certain MBTI types are more prone to entrepreneurship and questioning the status quo.

    Hmmm... I never thought about that, but I guess it definitely could be. That is something to look into further, for sure. I am interested in seeing if there is a correlation there.

    Confirmation bias.

    A woman is not interested in the fastlane, so ALL women are not interested in the fastlane?

    I've known plenty of great female business minds IRL. (I also think it's funny that this thread shows up at the same time one of the gold threads from a great female entrepreneur gets bumped: GOLD - [PROGRESS THREAD] ChickenHawk's Self-Published Fiction EBooks)

    Are men more likely to be entrepreneurs? I have no idea. I'm sure there is a study somewhere that answers that question, but does it matter?

    I have NEVER cared about the gender, race, religion, weight, looks, height, personality traits, or age (or anything else) of someone who's business provided me with VALUE.

    VALUE supersedes all that BS.

    You can't understand why your friend is NOT interested in the fastlane, and I would guess your friend can't understand why you ARE.

    The vast majority of people will never be fastlane, because the fastlane is uncomfortable. And that's OK!!

    That's why I think Unscripted is such an important book, because at the very least a slowlaner can tailor the message to fit their comfort level and have more autonomy, more control, and therefore more happiness by making Unscripted decisions.

    (this post probably sounds harsher than I meant it to sound, my bad)

    Many factors, that could be:

    -How comfortable they currently are?
    -Mindset-belief systems
    -Personality
    -Self esteem
    -Enrivonment
    -Cognitive

    I rather have it harsh and true, than nice but fake.
    While genes might play a part in physical talent and some high-level mental pursuits, I would consider them an 'investment'.

    We all have that little 'investment' in us...some of us can learn public speaking, playing piano, maths, art quickly...You will know what kind of investment you have in your genes until you act and execute lol.

    For example, I found I had an innate chops in writing. Some people just throw the paper and pen out of the window when they have writer's block...it's not for everyone. I had to discover my 'investment' by executing...I wrote Fanfiction (lol), articles for schools magazines, Quora posts, TFLF (lol!).

    It is up to us to develop that 'investment' into something bigger and valuable, let alone Fastlane. And that involves choice. And of course execution and doing the stuff.
    And we develop that investment by doing stuff, having mistakes, getting feedback and criticism, experiences, modelling after others....until we look down and realised, 'Wow...how far have we climbed up!'

    Your friend not being that interested has nothing to do with genes though. It's her choice. It will do well to respect her choice. She might not need it now as she might not have an FTE.

    Notable! - Manufacturing a FTE (F*ck This Event!)

    I would argue that choices can be made regardless of environment or situation. A pure choice must be your own doing regardless of the influx of information around you. If it isn't, then the SCRIPT or any other influence is in control, not you.

    I don't think her unwillingness to read the book is related to her gender.

    Until a person finds themselves in a place of great discomfort, they will resist change.
    Pain is what makes us move, her pain threshold, priorities and goals are different then yours, mine or anyone elses.

    It is true that genes can effect our hormones, which in turn, can effect our moods, but the true shaper of personality is the environment we live in and the people who we share it with.

    The circumstances you are in made you seek the book not your genes. If life will take your friend to a place dark enough for her to want to act and fight to improve her life, then she will start searching, just like you did.

    Don't apologize for "sounding harsh" to that bullsh*t.
    You hit it right on the head!

    A lot of people think that entrepreneurs who listen to people like Gary Vaynerchuk, or MJ, or Ramit Sethi have "drank the Kool-Aid".
    Who. Fuqin'. Cares.
    Like you said, not everyone is going to get it. And that's okay.
    They don't have to.

    You don't HAVE to tell the world what you're doing. Nor your friends. Or family. Or your dog and goldfish.
    Show them.
    And then guess what?...they STILL might not want to do what you do!!!
    They STILL may talk about you behind your back or say "your crazy" to your face!

    Or they'll talk out of their neck on how they want to do what you do, and show no ACTION!
    And that goes for XX and XY chromosome.

    That's cool. It's their life. You do you - and let them, do them.
    Not everyone is meant to be on this bandwagon. And if they are, THEY will choose the time to jump on, not you.

    And as far as that bullsh*t comment about the man being the "provider", said in the earlier comments.
    From what I've seen in the world, and throughout history - there are more single mothers out there in the world holding down 2 jobs, to the single man who can't even find 1.

    I meant for that to sound harsh. I'm not sorry.

    "Not in all cases" does not mean "ALL women" instead it means "Not every women" so choose your words precisely please , of course there are great female business minds I can never argue with that , and I also 'have NEVER cared about the gender, race, ... blah blah blah ' , but you can yourself notice the gender of the majority audience of this forum, gender interpretation of the issue is as true as any other logical interpretation of someones interest level in the Fastlane

    (you don't need to be sorry)

    As a woman, I am 100% driven to O.W.N my destiny.

    I come from a family of Zero business-owners, Zero business-insiders and 100% regular lifestyles, as this is what they know and understand so I don't knock them for it, because, honestly, they did a great job as parents and I am a free-thinker.

    I have one sibling, a brother - YUP - i.e. a man, who is older by 3 years, he is married and has 3 beautiful children - I have begged him beyond necessity to read TMF when I read it, I even bought him a hard copy which became a dust collector, I finished reading Unscripted a long while ago, I didn't even bother mentioning anything to him; simply, I no longer speak business with him because I have come to the overstanding that he is quite comfortable. When he complains about the rat race, I have Zero responses to it because I have recognised that this journey which I am Deeply DRIVEN by - as a woman - is a one-person journey. From my personal experience, entrepreneurship is:

    1. A genuine yearning people have for obtaining more than society tells them they should have/do.

    2. The opportunity to create life how one sees fit.

    3. Well, after reading and enjoying TMF and Unscripted - it teaches that as a major contribution in life, one is equipped with the opportunity to add value to this big world we live in and this can be done in multiple ways.

    4. The opportunity to solve problems and bring astronomical life-altering experiences to other people's lives.

    Success has nothing to do with genes. Neither does the scripted option of gender-roles. Hunting/Hunter-Gathering, Providing etc. is NOT, I repeat NOT gender-specific, do not allow society to feed you that baloney, because history, that is NOT taught in schools, proves that either roles can be fulfilled either way wherever necessary.

    Every individual has their own journey in life, and with each journey, we each have our own unique challenges and experiences which may result in different outcomes.

    The forum is neither feminist nor masculinist, we are simply a group of people from ALL different walks of life, different ages, ethnicities, countries who believe there is a whole lot more to life than what we have been fed and believe that we have a lot to offer the world.

    Your friend did not read the book because she is possibly at a comfortable point in her life where she sees no need to yearn for more than she has. Is there anything wrong with that? No; because you have come to the light, it doesn't mean you'll have a following with you. I have been there, done that and I am happily minding my business, grinding quietly on my own pursuit of greatness.

    so the list goes by to
    "her gender
    her choice
    her pain threshold, priorities and goals
    environment and circumstances
    her Openness and Conscientiousness
    and because not everyone is going to get it and Not everyone is meant to be on this bandwagon" :p
    thank you all for your responses I appreciate each one and those really sound logical reason for any one to have a negative bias toward Fastlane some of them may have a high impact percentage over a person behavior when Fastlane is presented and some would not .

    your experience with your brother I can admit its nearly the same as mine , the thing is you do want the best for them but they still don't listen and at the end of the day it's their choice and life , maybe mediocrity ,slowlane and sidewalk is what they see as their best life style and they would be content with it,we have done what we've should've done for them and now it's all their decision.

    Absolutely, I've learnt in my pursuit, as @Gigi Rodgers stated, the best way to inspire change is to become the example. I no longer talk business with my brother, simply because I don't want him feel as if I am pressuring him to do something he is not mentally prepared for, yes I want the best for him too and I do everything in my power, whenever I have the chance to teach my nephew and two nieces to think beyond what society teaches them. One of my nieces question every-living-thing, and that is pretty cool, I encourage them to keep doing so; whatever I know off the bat I tell them when they ask and what I don't know serves as an opportunity for us to learn together, I make it clear to them that even as adults, we wouldn't know everything and that it's okay for us to learn it together.

    That's not to say that your friend may not specifically come to the light; there may be a time later down when she sees that light and then she may be ready to pursue the Fastlane, don't knock her for it now, accept her as she is, now is an opportunity for you to grind and become the example for her to have the yearning to level up. You are pursuing your journey and so is your friend, we certainly want strictly the best for all our loved ones, but, in wanting the best, we simply have to come to terms with the fact that not everyone will pull through similar pathways to what we choose. :)

    I would say an entrepreneurial mindset is nurture (your surroundings) rather than nature (your genes).

    I just sent you rep loot for having the guts to say it. Hah!

    There are always exceptions to the norms, but I see nothing wrong with noticing patterns-of-behavior and interest. As a woman, I never felt held back by my gender, but I'd have to be blind to not notice that more men are interested in entrepreneurial ventures than women. Every once in a while, someone will post here, "Hey, what can we do to attract more women, so we can be more diverse?" To that, I say hogwash. Why would we want people here who don't have a true, passionate interest?

    Everyone is welcome here, as long as they have genuine interest. The guys on this forum are great. The gals on this forum are great. There are definitely more guys, and I do think biology has something to do with it. As I get older, one thing that saddens me is how many women feel the need to apologize for "just being a homemaker" or for "just wanting to be homemaker." It's the most important job in the world. As a society, IMO, we don't value it nearly enough. I'm not saying that all women should be homemakers or all men should be entrepreneurs, but somewhere along the line, we decided that only "male" qualities mattered. As a result, we have a lot of bitter, unhappy women and confused, frustrated men.

    Gender-aside, I do think certain traits are hereditary, including entrepreneurial ability/interest. In a way, it's like height. Men tend to be taller, but not all men are tall. Some families tend to be taller, but not all siblings are tall. If physical traits are at least partially determined by biology, why not mental ones?

    Oh hey, a funny side note about IQ distribution: Men dominate the higher ends of the scale. But they also dominate the lower ends. Women, in general (with exceptions of course) cluster more in the middle.

    In summary...
    If you're a man, you're statistically more likely than a woman to be a genius. But alas, you're also more likely to be a dullard.
