I recently read this article from fastlaneentrepreneurs[dot]com. No. 6 really touched me and i've repented of it. Excerpts below:

Deadly Sin #6: ENVY
In the movie, Wall Street, Money Never Sleeps, Shia Lebouf asks the rich financier, Josh Brolin “How much money is enough? What number is enough for you?” His answer?

MORE.

I believe MORE is ENVY.

Envy is a prescription for unhappiness because there will always be someone else with something better, bigger, and faster. In other words, the illusion of MORE never arrives. MORE keeps you confined in future thinking and denies all the joys of your present.

Instead, find your ENOUGH.

I’ve found my enough and while MORE would be a sweet surprise, I don’t need it.

If I wanted MORE (4 Lamborghinis instead of 1, or a 12,000 square ft house instead of 4,500) I’d be in trouble. I’d be back on the treadmill of the rat race facing sleepless nights and pressure filled deadlines. When you want for nothing and find your ENOUGH, it’s a great place to be. Find your ENOUGH and you’ll find happiness too.

REPENT: Strive for more, but know how much and what exactly is your enough. Be grateful for what you have. (Many people around the world don’t have clean water, toilets, food, etc.) You might be shocked at how close you are to “enough” — once you get there, you gain immunity from the rampant message of consumerism. My personal turning point of happiness was at age 27 and ironically, I was broke — it was the 1st time in my life I was fully self-supportive via entrepreneurship.

Is that even one of MJ’s sites?... Can’t say I’ve ever read, listened, or even imagined MJ saying “Whatz up” to his followers let alone in a box to prompt new users to enter their email address...just doesn’t seem like his content

That is one of his older sites to get the word on TMF going.
Now MJ has more leverage, like a bunch of raving entrepreneurs on the Forum, hundreds of reviews on Amazon to his name, and numerous YouTube interviews.

We all use to walk in a baby walker or move in a pram. Now we run on our two strong feet, or zoom around in a car.

We do different things at different times in our work.;)

It is, but I decided I would focus all my time here at the forum as it is more engaging with readers than a blog.
