    I was one of those "easy way out disney Goofy chuckle kind a guys" always seeing the end result and not researching their process....TMF, book and Forum opened my eyes, and that lead to wanting to know even more entrepreneurs multiple failures and start ups via books and the internet...it was then I realized that if I am to one day join the same club, I better start getting off my ass and doing enduring some more failures and hardships of my own. Ill never forget the feeling of "ohhh he has done it whats his dot point EXACT map and chart of how he did it!!!" When I hear of others success...Even if I am not successful at the moment I am disgusted by the feelings of "The Easy Way Out" that I used to get and seeing it in others when they ask successful people "come on man just freakin tell me your exact steps dammit!!!" That feeling of hope like "sweet hes/she has done all the hard work for me" I am ashamed for how I used to get my hopes up like that. Only horrible people "hope" for the lazy fast success without working and sacrificing their ass off for it...

    Like Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson said

    Tom: I want the truth!!!!

    Jack: You can't handle the truth!!!

    I show friends the link to these threads and they are all wide eyed and excited like some magic bullet is going to fall into their hands...they then scrunch up their noses and say "man that sounds like a lot of work..." well no Sh1t Sherlock!!!!! I sometimes wonder if I have gone mad staring at those books on my bookshelf calling them my "mentors" and the contact with friends that go out a lot less and less...dribbling on a bit here but this story I instantly said "yeah this guy is as fastlane as a fighter jet flying over the highway..." all the traits are there..all the failures are there...definitely inspiring in terms of living in the same country (Australia)....if anyone doesn't get inspired by what he posted let alone MJs book, they are dead inside. And probably belong at Wendy's scrubbing the grill and cursing "those damn rich people" . So thank you all for the inspiration especially the creator of the forum, TMF and this bloke among many others Duncan Bannatyne and pretty much any entrepreneur you can think of as most were self made with nothing more than belief in their heart and the desire to change their lives because sh1t just wasn't working out. Unfortunately there are too many who are complacent with sh1t not working out...those are the ones who can't handle the truth.

    The persistence in the OP's story is awesome, it seemed to turn good relatively quick. Not sure if I correctly caught the timeline of that section.
    Either way, well worth the read!

    Read this thread at least 10 times and I just can't stop...

    I have this bookmarked so that every time I feel down, I feel like quitting, I just read this and get motivated as hell.

    It took me awhile to read this but once I got closer to the end it blew my mind and at age 28 a year younger then me. This was very much inspirational. I find that with all true success stories their are always a test of misery, pain, frustration and feeling of giving it up. I learned all who fought past it all was rewarded.

    I remember reading 2 threads before my registration here on this forum:

    One was about someone dreaming of a bugatti.
    The other one is worth a bump.

    Too good to not be on the front page, screenplay material.

    Wow, this story gave me goosepumps and made me speechless.. Thanks @Dwight Schrute for getting it back to the front page!

    That was just incredible, those threads are the ones that would deserve PLATINUM tag and every new user should read it.

    Does anyone know what Cantwait2 is doing nowadays?

    Is he still operating from NZ?

    Love to see an update.

    Wow... You're amazing man, I'm so happy for you and your girl. Honestly, I teared up when I read the part where you mention your $2 million home, and lamborghini. So much wisdom and knowledge in this post. I'd love to chat with you if possible, and hopefully one day, meet you in person and crack open a beer together. Enjoy what you've earned. :)
