Most of the folks that like and agree with this meme are the same folks that say my books (and my message) are a scam.
Despite being very new to this forum, please allow me to be so bold as to add...that's also why so many of us are here with you MJ. Some of us want to help you in making a difference.They aren't interested in change, they're interested in confirming their victim identity through shared communal misery.
But the answers are out there. And it's why I keep writing.
That's because Hollywood has trained their minds to think superhero status is an EVENT, not a PROCESS."There is no magical third act where I'm the star in some fantasy adventure."
+1You could be a star (or at least a big character). Give your time to help the homeless, or dogs, or children and you will be one of those saviors.
I agree 100%.I would caution knee jerk judgement on these guys, it's easy to dismiss them as lazy, useless, entitled, etc.
I used to think the same as I moved out of my parents home at 18 to go to university , I had grown up in a very rural area and didn't really have any of the tools to be successful my only advantage was perseverance and luck but mostly not giving up I achieved most my goals at the time against all odds, given I had come to the U.S. at the age of 8 not knowing one F*cking word of English, I slept under a crib as a child as my parents could only afford to heat one room of the trailer house, and we all slept there. This was an upgrade from my home country as we had it even worse there now that I think about it. We were really poor, used to pick up cans for school supplies.
I used to judge these guys also as lazy looking at it from my POV, but now that I have kids I realize it's not really their fault, it's really on the parents. When you grow up without any challenges or suffering you don't learn any perseverance, you don't build any character, you are unwilling to bash your head against the wall to meet your task, you are in an artificial environment a bubble. When these guys get out into their world, they can't find meaning to it because they have been living a big artificial lie and they get into a depressive state. These types of people will only grow in numbers, when you take a look at all the F*cking cupcakes that are being raised any weak parents who don't want them to feel uncomfortable because it "hurts" their self esteem, it's going to be something never before seen in human history.
I was the opposite. My parents tried to get me to do stuff but I didn't want to. I feel bad because I was being a little s**t and am still kinda am.I agree 100%.
If there was one thing I could change about my childhood, I would want MORE struggle, MORE challenges, MORE competitiveness. My parents never pushed me to join a sport/club, or to get a car/job. They raised me to be a cupcake.
I suffer from a disease called average...still searching for a cure...
My son is extremely stubborn, he is perhaps the most stubborn kid I have met in my life.I was the opposite. My parents tried to get me to do stuff but I didn't want to. I feel bad because I was being a little s**t and am still kinda am.
I'm a very stubborn individual.
Whenever my parents push me to do something I go against them but if it's something I really want to do then yeah I'll go for it.
I like to do things on my own and figure things out by myself.
I don't think Hollywood is to blame. But that Hollywood makes stuff what people want: no process, just events.That's because Hollywood has trained their minds to think superhero status is an EVENT, not a PROCESS.
Batman became Batman doing a couple of pull-ups in a subterranean cave.
Spiderman became Spiderman getting bit by a spider.
Rey became an all powerful Jedi by finding a lightsaber.
No process, all short events that took hours, at most days.
People aren't willing to endure months or years, but only hours and days.
Good for you NovaAria and keep at it. Even if only person changes their life because of you - you will have made a difference.I recommended TFM to several of my friends, even went out of my way to personally give a copy to one of them.
None of them bothered opening it yet, despite seeing the kind of changes I went through after reading it and everyone commending me for it.
Maybe once they see my millions and tell me for the millionth time how lucky I was, and me reminding them of the book, they might actually read it.
