Hello everyone!

On page 315 of MFL, one of reader reflections says

"MJ, I currently have $12,000 in debt and am barely making ends meet. Where do I start?"

I relate to this reflection a lot because that's where I've started. After completing the MFL book, I've already managed to make some corrective actions and "will" advance further from that ASAP!

Looking back my last 10 years, I've been moving back and forth between SLOWLANE and SIDEWALK. As you can already guess, whenever I got frustrated with SLOWLANE, I went straight to SIDEWALK and went through painful months of indentured time in order to recover back to SLOWLANE only to fall back to SIDEWALK over and over again. TRAPPED RAT LIFE!

Thinking about my dream life, it doesn't sound too difficult once I manage to stay "in the flow" of following MFL principles religiously.

All I want is to have a life of freedom
- to be whoever I want to be
- to do whatever I like when I want to
- to go wherever interests me

I don't even need to have all those materialistic and luxury lifestyles. My goal is to be a truly wealthy person "in" and "out".

Looking forward to connecting with you all and paying back to the community one day (hopefully very soon!)
