    We see it here all the time here at Fastlane. Someone posts a success story or a personal break through, and like clockwork, someone always asks "what exactly did you do? I mean like, tell me the EXACT steps!"

    How do I succeed? How do I make millions?! How do I X, Y, and Z?

    Well by popular demand, I give you the exact steps!

    Here we go:

    The Exact Steps For Entrepreneurial Success!

    And the beauty of these EXACT STEPS? They also will tell you EXACTLY where you will fail! Take a look at STEP 3.

    That is the place where most people make failure permanent.

    STEP 3 is also the final destination for people who say "I gonna give this FASTLANE thing a try!"

    Oh really? Going to the gym ONCE ain't gonna make you a fitness model!

    it reminds me of Brian Tracy's saying:

    he says " you will succeed 10 % of the time. you will fail nine time and have a big success on the 10th time

    so what would you do with my promise ?

    you would fail fast ,wouldn't you ? in order to go quickly to the big success ! "

    Great post.

    The most wonderfully ironic thing is, even if you wanted to give the 'exact steps' they don't even exist, and if they did exist, they wouldn't work anymore! Your journey is yours, love the journey, love the process! That's what it's about boys and girls.

    famous marketer eben pagan is a former dating coach ( david angelo as his pen name)

    a thing he said about dating that really made me think :

    " most guys want to know the exact thing to say to a girl. but the perfect thing to say doesn't exist. "

    dating is about mastering the dating mindset, not the perfect thing to say

    same thing in business.

    business is about mastering the business mindset, not finding the perfect steps

    Buy business cards. Make sure they say "CEO".

    Then get a logo designed.

    Pick color of Ferrari. :rofl:

    And here's another important point...

    Even after reaching #35 (SUCCESS!) the process starts ALL over again.

    Except next time, it might not be 35 steps long, but only 12 steps long. The fact is, no one has a 100% success rate. Even the VC billionaires don't succeed 100% of the time (if they did, ALL of their investments would make fortunes and go public) -- they endure the same process, albeit their learning curve is much shorter.

    Yeah, pretty much failing on a daily basis, if you really wanna look at it like that. Mostly just learning, not bankruptcy.
