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.

"il love the journey after my first million"

Great post.

That's what it's about boys and girls.

"il love the journey after my first million"

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

How am I supposed to act?

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.

Fastlane is a skill like any other, no?

It's just the arena that changes. (ecom, real estate, whatever)

Couldn't have agreed more! Success is definitely based on experiences, adjusting and re-trying. It's a thought that should drive you to create opportunities for yourself. Everyone should apply seasons to there lives just as nature itself has seasons. Winter- Contemplate/formulate new ideas. Spring- Implement the new ideas/start them. Summer- Work hard on making sure your labor is baring fruits. Fall- Enjoy the fruits of your labor.

The next time the process gets shorter(12 steps instead of 35) as you get more experienced.

Building on your example, the process would also be longer than 35 steps for some people.

In your opinion, what is the difference between two people with zero experience starting from step 1(read the book) and one person's journey ends at step 35(Success) while the other at step 70?
