    This is just my perspective, but do you need a mentee? This really comes down to inner motivation, disciplining yourself. While many individuals can hold you accountable just in the forum and talking to you once a week, to hold you accountable, really it's the internal motivation. Navy Seals are trained the same way, they may go through the training, but really, ordered to move, and go through the process, but it still comes down to internal motivation, drive, determination, and pushing yourself.

    Yeah, you're right. Logically speaking, I know what I should be doing 99.9% of the time. I just wanted someone to kick me in the ass so I dont self-sabotage. Today I met up with my accountability group and they shamed the shit out of me. They said that they look up to me as a leader in many ways and to see me fucking up (I binged on porn, Netflix and other shit for 1.5 days straight). I feel very ashamed of myself and Im now on a 30 day challenge and if I fuck up this time, I wont be able to live with myself.

    Sometimes, I wonder if I like the thrill of self-sabotaging all of my efforts and then rebuilding my momentum. I hate the result of course because I regret it every single time. But you're right, it definitely has to do with comfort.

    I dont know man... But either way, if i fuck up one more time, my friends will be emberassed for me so now I have something to drive me...

    Don't be afraid of fucking up. I do it hourly sometimes but daily I'll fuck up something somehow. Just decide to be amused by it. Friends are highly over rated. We worry about what they think of us for 90% of the time and yet they think of us less than 1% of the time. Friends are for BBQs, the mirror is for accountability. To be honest I think you just need to focus a little more on why you want to be a success. Is it a never ending supply of cash you want? Is it freedom? What is it that motivates you to want to be successful? Find a good and powerful answer to that and you'll have your accountability. What other people think is of very little consequence. I know you're not putting all your validation into what they think but I'd put none. They can go and GF for what their opinions of me are.

    I don't think you need validation or a kick up the arse. just be satisfied at your daily progress, look for some daily satisfaction or excitement and just keep putting one foot in front of the other. If you're not feeling it one day - have a day off. If it's important to you you'll move in a generally forward direction. From what you've written above I think you'll be fine - especially if your satisfied with your efforts most of the time. No one is measuring you, no friends care about your progress. If they pay you out for being lazy or tell you that "you embarrass them" they aren't any where even remotely close to being your friends. Get rid of them (my preference) or take away their power of influence over you by telling them to go fuck themselves (or just not being around them any more) if they ever feel "embarrassed" to have you as their friend. That's atrocious behaviour (unless they're just kidding). If they actually make you feel bad then get rid of them immediately! No friend is a friend if they take pleasure in then make a point of mentioning that sort of rubbish. They're idiots.

    I like the suggestion above my MJ about getting "mentorship" from books. Books are like listening to your mentor without interrupting them while they speak. Always be reading something positive from authors you admire. They (and their words) will echo in your mind and motivate you plenty. You only have yourself to be accountable to anyway. You're doing fine. Keep it up.

    Dude... go join the Navy... they will shove discipline down your throat. Especially if you join the SEALS! You should never trust the government anyway. The government is made up of people and policies. As a SEAL you will be doing what SEALS have always done. Swim, swim, and swim some more. I think there's someone on this forum that was a SEAL? @jon.a ?

    I was an Aircrewman. I was taught to swim personally by a SEAL.

    You're not gonna get anywhere with those types of "goals". Those are feel-good, action faking, Tony Robbins / Tai Lopez / Life Guru - type stuff man. What does achieve entrepreneurship mean? You need to be more specific. What type of business are you starting?
    The "Self-mastery" and "mastery of life" mindset is just mental masturbation.

    I've read the first few pages, but skipped to respond so please forgive me if I addressed something that's already been said.

    Have you ever considered your inconsistent behavior is more of a focus issue? I've been really motivated lately, but every time I sit down to execute I get lost in an endless sea of head fakes. This isn't a new issue. It's followed me since I was an "underachieving" high school student. Graduated with a 2.5 GPA and graduated college with a 2.3!

    Instead of complaining about it I finally took some responsibility for my life (at age 26!) and decided to see a specialist. They, within an hour long session, determined I suffer from some serious ADD. Today is the first day on Aderall, and I'm getting a lot of work completed! It's helped me focus on what I really want to accomplish instead of the things that "come up" and try to steal my attention.

    ADD is seriously over diagnosed, but once you take your prescription you'll know in 45 minutes whether or not you need it. I can't imagine what I would have accomplished when I was in school, but I can only look to the future.

    If it's been this bad of an issue, see a doctor to make sure.

    EDIT: I want to make it clear that I'm not condoning going on meds just because. If you've had issues staying on task and completing projects this long then I think it's worth looking into. Medicine will never give you passion or drive, but it can level your brain out to allow you to think and work normally.

    If you want to learn consistency one of the best things you can do is structure your days into blocks of time. Be militant about it, where everything from when you wake up to what and when you eat to even mediating your time on the internet etc.
    Get your shit together for your day the night before. Start out with a morning routine that you do religiously. Military men are taught to make their bed perfectly first thing. Why? Because they just started their day off with an accomplishment.

    Being structured is key to long term consistency. You should not be caught off guard.
    Proper preparation prevents poor performance.
    If you have a bad day screw it, life is full of bad days. Prepare for the next day and get back at it.

    I know exactly what you're going through and up until very recently I would do the same thing: "30 day challenge" "90 day challenge" "Quit video games for 1 year" "Stop eating carbs" "No more movies" etc etc etc.

    And it got me nowhere. Eventually, because I was focused on what I shouldn't do, I'd quit doing one thing, and binge on the other, and back and forth and back and forth. And then feel ashamed and vow to 'work on my willpower' and do something like take cold showers or workout or something. There is value in that, but it's not enough.

    You know what I realized that my problem was, deep down? I was trying to come up with a system to automate MYSELF - trying to come up a fool proof way to set myself up so that I could sit back and 'I' would automatically do the work 'for me'. Ridiculous, I know. I think you're doing the same thing though.

    You need to realize that it's YOUR CHOICE to kick yourself in the ass. You don't need an 'accountability group' or a 'mentor'. You need to take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for your actions, 100% of the time, and CHOOSE to HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE. In fact, pick up your copy of MFL right now and re-read Chapter 9: Wealth demands Accountability.

    And don't just skim through it either, hoping that your brain will automatically absorb it. Make the effort to focus on understanding what that means. Make it real in your mind. Choose to work at understanding the concept of accountability and making that a part of your character and don't do it until you finish.

    Also, as an extra little tidbit: Don't multitask. Focus on one thing at a time.

    Absolutely agree, self-discipline as well as self-motivation depend on you only. You have to settle your personal goals and move to them.

    Provide a lot of value, consistently, over the long term.

    I don't know the algorithm this forum uses... something to do with our level of "speed".
