    Just to play devils advocate - for Entry, you COULD still start a business that has a low barrier and succeed if you outwork/outlast those who just entered because it was easy right?

    I covered this in both my books. It's called execution. 2Es defeat 1E... Executional excellence can defeat ease of entry.

    I have read TMF and I am half way through Unscripted.

    Loved this thread.

    I can see why you are so rich MJ. You provide so much value.

    Thank you.

    I know you don't need it but I am transferring Rep.

    Best regards,

    Ashish.

    The story / anecdote in UNSCRIPTED about Heaven and Hell appearing the same but in Heaven each person is using their 3 foot fork to help others eat the food comes to mind.

    One of the messages glaring at me as I finished MFL and now into UNSCRIPTED is Money chasing = losing proposition, while creating value/convenience/solutions/helping to solve a problem for people attracts money via 'money vouchers' so to speak where money acts as the medium placeholder that facilitates the exchange of value from the creator to customer.

    I am now Tuning my frequency to hone in on ideas and opportunities to serve the people on this planet. :)

    A combination of all of the above. Some things money can't buy, like having an inbox of "you changed my life" emails. Really feels inspiriting to make a difference and do something with your heart as the priority as opposed to the wallet. At times it does feel like charity because I'd make a lot more focusing on something else.

    A lot of it comes back to when I was 20 ... I wrote the book(s) I wish I had available to me.

    I have been thinking about this quote all afternoon. I now want to do what I can to serve the best way possible. That was a missing link for me.
