hello,

i am 27 years old and i live and am from a small country in latin america, and i want to live an unscripted life.

i went to college and pursued an engineering degree, although i haven't graduated yet i finished all the classes; somewhere down the line i realized i didn't much like the idea of working as a glorified calculator, investing countless hours developing the mental skills and technical know how, to work for someone else for an average yearly salary of $6,000 maybe $12,000 once you have enough experience and in the best case scenario $24,000 which of course entails a life of dedication to the profession. At least a college degree in my country is practically free.

Apparently i am not in love with the idea of dedicating a lot of effort for my entire life, for what seems like a survival budget, sure is way better that having a low skill job, in this side of the world, but does not sounds like success to me.

i consider am smart enough to figure out a way to add value to others without becoming a slave for someone else's profit. i want to ripped the script out of my head, abandon all meaningless entertainment exchanging it for meaningful activities like participating in this forum, learning new skills, reading books.

think that's all for my intro.

by the way, if you use some kind of software that has repetitive tasks and no quick keyboard command for it, i can help you creating keyboard shortcuts for multi step tasks. in my work i found myself having to click the same button over and over again moving the mouse from one monitor end to the other all the time, i soon grew tired of it and found a quick solution. i you are having a similar problem i can help you.

Hey Sartk.. or should I say Stark? haha

I know how you feel when you said.

Apparently i am not in love with the idea of dedicating a lot of effort for my entire life, for what seems like a survival budget

I always thought that we have 1 life and we can live this life once, why should spend my time, my effort and my energy to make others rich? Bullshit.

So I am glad that you are here with us, and to let you know, I am the same boat as you.. looking forward to ripping the scrip out of my head

Hey man, welcome to the forum.

It doesn't matter whether you are from a mud hole in Africa or from a lush magnificent-mansion in North America.You my friend have found this knowledge-filled place by yourself, by YOUR effort, by YOUR CHOICE.You choose this while your third world friends yell at the politicians and their bad karma for their own life problems.

Bad karma is not being able to see that YOU have a CHOICE.See, if you have found this place and if you have read Mr.Money MJ's two books..man then you have a GREAT HAND unlike other third world folks riding the third world by their own choice.


So answer for your questions lies within yourself.It is only YOU can answer the problems faced by you.Don't run away from them like most people do and later regret for not taking a constructive solution for those burning problem that they neglected to answer.

Let me tell you one answer for all questions you have.

What's it? It ain't a quick fix.Quick fix is for loser guy.

You are not a loser.You are a winner.That's why you have found this place.

So answer for your question is improving yourself in every aspect.

Improve yourself knowledge wise.Develop a great healthy physique.Master some skill.Build a business and that's why we are here for.

Bottom-line, HAVE NO EXCUSES.YOU CHOOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE.EVEN YOUR BIRTH PLACE IS CHOSEN BY YOU.

Therefore go ahead and choose to CHOOSE the good life filled with happiness and freedom.And the path for that isn't paved with a comfortable rose filled sweet smelling surrounding where cute women serves you whatever you like.No it is far from that.It's a tough road filled with lot of consistent difficult work and daily constructive action.

Btw I highly recommend you to read MJ's two books again and again.

Thanks for tuning in

You will win as long as you PLAY!

Perhaps it's priced accurately... It'll still cost you years though.

i consider am smart enough to figure out a way to add value to others without becoming a slave for someone else's profit
Be careful about seeing value in your own intelligence. Truth is, it has zero value by itself. It's like an engine without wheels & steering. You'll need to throw yourself in the brutal grind of the market newbie to learn all the other traits you must build. Intelligence is just one among many.

As for the way: marketable skill. If you can get very good at something that people will pay for, you don't have to stay in a job, you can sell your services independently. This is the best middlelane between the slowlane of a job and the fastlane of a business.

Good luck. The story is true wherever you are in the world. The successes I have had previously could have been achieved from anywhere (that has an internet connection).
