I just uninstalled every single game i had on my pc. F*ck this BS comfort. I've been on the + side, the creative, the "i got this side" and ive been on the other side. I have to say, the illusion of the comfort side, the routine, the lies you tell yourself... it's enticing. I fully understand. But, in those moments when you're honest with yourself...those are the moments you get to call heads or tails. It gives you that bit of freedom of accountability. It's fully doable, if you choose it. You must make sacrifice. It's a part of the job. Bu when you have it going, when you're firing, ..when you know what you are doing... it's like you see the world as a winner. It's worth it for the experience.And as Lebron once put it, once you're hitting it, the rewards -

“Basketball isn’t easy. All my life I’ve been striving to make myself better. It’s a full time commitment. To be the best, you have to work the hardest. You have to chase what seems impossible over and over and over again. Cause giving up is not an option, and when you feel like you’ve reached your limit, it’s only the beginning, that’s when it’s time to dig deep, to find the courage to push some more, because if you’ve got the drive, the discipline, and the resolve to do what it takes to make yourself great, then the rewards are endless.” - LeBron James


Keep pushing. Don't stall.

This really speaks to me as an artist. I'm way past the dreaming stage and finally have something tangible to provide. This weekend I'll be working my first comicon (actually working For comicon-incredibly excited!) so this is the first step for me really putting my energy into this specific space and switching gears from that typical 9-5 sales gig.

Its truly Action above all.
Recently wrapping up MFL and on the topic about execution being king and this comic pretty much sums it up. Glad to see this.

Ha. First time I read this thread... was put off by "reddit" being in the title.

Awesome. Makes the left side look so silly.

Going to print it out too and post it on the wall as suggested.

Too many people dream... not enough do.

....

On a side note: In the real world, the right side only shows part of the story.

There are FAR more sacrifices, failures, etc along the way, (often true for most).

The image that gets to me the most is on a beach living the dream ...of reading books about how others struggled and strived to live THEIR dreams. Living life as a spectator rather than participant, but thinking they are on their way because of what they now know. Brilliant imagery...

great stuff, so are you are in artists alley? I run my own online Pop Culture and Collectable business which I started this in January this year with $500.. I have made it to two cons here in Australia, Oz Comicon in Brisbane and Supanova Brisbane...

They are incredibly busy and great networking events. I get different stuff out of it than you as an artist would, I use them not only for sales but to build my name and also the most important thing for an online business Trust..

I look forward to hearing how you go at your first con, good luck!

On the West Coast we ride
I remember 10 years ago when I started my company, I worked so much I slept at work a number of times.

And I was dead broke for the first 3 years. Just scraping by.
And slowly, it started to roll. Then you hire people (and you are even more broke, but that's another topic).

And ups and downs. But I've been grinding away.
And it feels great.
Closing in on $3M/year in sales, and it has been YEARS of hard work.
So I can relate.

And there is NO finish line :)

Also, what the hell is reddit and who has time for it ???

Marked GOLD as the comic is a GOLD take on taking action versus dreaming, planning, wishing, action-faking...

You're reading too much when it's turning you into
a consumer instead of a producer.

I like that the artist put their own anthology in the "mental maturbation" pile. Class act to realize you might be part of the "problem," in some small way.

Probably one of the most mind opening things a person could ever see.
If people had that mentality, the world would be a bit more successful, in my eyes.
Dreams just don't happen over night. If they did, man, would we have a bunch of famous and wealthy people walking among-st us.

BUMP.

Remember this?

Either way, here's a REMINDER. :joyful:

This needs to be a poster on the wall.
I forgot about this post and comic until last night. I actually looked to see if it was a poster for sale on the website, but I didn't find it. :(



P.S. It's almost the end of the first month of 2016...

"There you are... reading that comic.... then you say....
"This is really true!", "This story really hits me!", "I should do something!".
Then you give up, before you even try.
While amazed and feel motivated on reading that comic, the author is now making money.
(sigh) .....That story actually represents you, and the author of that comic.
"

- Words on my head, while watching my friend reading that story.

Some of the most successful members here are helping people behind the scenes.

Just because they are not posting specifically here, does not mean they aren't engaged elsewhere in a campaign of mentorship and help: Facebook, Slack, Skype, personal phone calls .... and yet, more often than not, the theme of this cartoon often comes up.

Quit dreaming. Reading. Planning. Watching.

DO.
DO.

WORK.
WORK.

ADJUST.
ADJUST.

REPEAT.

Great bump MJ.



I love reading as much as the next guy. I just have to keep reminding myself of the danger of consuming more than I produce.

Consumers give money to producers.

Which are you?

Wow! I really needed to see this today. I'm constantly second guessing myself and finding reasons not to start. I know I need to take action but it's always much easier to fake it isn't it. Time to stop with the nonsense. Thanks so much for posting! I really and truly just love this forum, you guys are awesome!

That was beautiful, man. You know that feeling when you've grown a little and see how naive and ignorant you were just a year ago? I get pangs of that when I see things like this.

It's an interesting paradox. There are millions upon millions of people who've devoured a library of self-help material, yet they're totally inert in their lives, and in truth have not even understood what they've read or otherwise digested. I think the key is how you live. There's immobile and intellectually stagnant people, and then there's those who're putting in WORK. It's a a physical thing. It's being willing to expend real energy to make this shit work.
