Absoloutly amazing story, cantwait2! I really think everyone with a goal in life, should read this. It's such an inspiration. I'm 18 now, and only getting started, and this really inspires me and gives me hope for the future.

Thanks for the story, and congratulations on you accomplishments!

Lesson, #8 – Appreciate now.

...I guess the point of where I’m going with this is that not everyone can be wealthy in a financial sense, but everyone can live an equally fulfilling, happy and enjoyable life.

Because people don’t have money I believe they don’t concentrate on being happy because they think that if they had money they would automatically live happily ever after and thus live their life on lotto tickets and if only’s.

But don’t get me wrong, wealth is a legitimate and worthy goal to pursue, and if you want it bad enough you will find it in even the darkest corners of hardship. Just don’t let it be a condition on your right to enjoy life now, because that is a right I believe we are all inherently bestowed.


Great stuff! ^ ^ ^

I spent about 1 hour yesterday trying to find this story on the forum. I read this story when I first signed up and went on an emotional roller coaster ride with the main character.

Thank you to whomever got it bumped back to the top again.

What part of the forum are the rest of the success stories located at?

I'm obsessed with this story!

When will there be more stories?!

.....I'm still working on mine, but who else has an epic story like this?! This is by far my personal favorite out of all of them. The take away for me was PERSIST.

I read this story when I first signed up and went on an emotional roller coaster ride with the main character.

It's not everyday that a story like this can have such an impact. It's raw, uncut, uncensored success.

I know I already posted on this page but WOW.

Thank you for posting this in such detail. Your journey has been amazing and your persistence is a real inspiration - reading things like this when you're in my position (at the very foot of the mountain of entrepreneurship) goes along way to showing what it takes to achieve any kind of success. Massive respect!

I absolutely loved this story and believe that you could turn this into a fastlane millionaire spinoff book. The fastlane book shows and tells us how we can be successful in extreme depth wheras your story genuinely shows how important and real the process is. After reading flm my eyes were opened on how one can become wealthy young, while it is for any age I'm only turning 19. Now that I have read your story I feel it can give ideas and inspirations to people, like right now I'm planning on pursuing sales skills. I too want to be a multi millionaire by age 25. I've been having trouble on deciding and figuring out on what to do and how to do it (even though it's only the past two days I stumbled upon the book and this forum), but you're story truly does give insight. I recommend everyone read your story immediately following millionaire fast lane. Thanks.

I stumbled upon a thread not knowing that it had the power to rock my world!

This story really makes me believe more on the possibility that Fastlane success is not luck. It's hard work and persistence coupled with being "road trip" focused and knowing the correct "recipes" to achieving massive wealth. I thank MJ for writing the book because if not for him, I might still be spinning my wheels up to now!

Time is running out for me and I am turning 24, 2 weeks from now. It's so hard to slack of and be lazy after reading the book and reading this thread. I am so hungry for success!!!!!! I wasted three years of my life since 21 chasing slowlane gurus and wealth seminars that only sold snakeoil! How I wish I have read this book since I was 21. But then again, I might not be able to appreciate the gravity of its information. The book, and this thread, hit all the right notes at right time and place!

Cheers to cantwait2!!!
