Hello, How is everybody doing?!
26285
My name is Mohammad Sabil and I live in London, UK.
I'm 22 Years old and am originally an Indian.
NOTE# I'm not gonna take much of your time. Also, please don't mind my English, I'm not a native writer.

My Story

26287
Last Year.
I finally have enough courage to post an introduction thread.
last year around this time of the year I dropped out of my University course, I was in my 2nd year studying computer science at Royal Holloway London.
At that time of the year, I was introduced to self-help books by my brother{Samiuddin}. I was always refusing to read anything because my English literature has always been weak.


First Book:
26282
The First-Ever book I read.
I was struggling like any other student in University burdened with assignments and practicals work. Unfortunately, I was under the influence of a drug called CBD vaping Juice(It basically calms you down and relaxes your anxiety). More on that later...
So the first-ever book I've ever read was "How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie".

Learning and growing from mistakes:

26283
Gave up so many times.
I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I didn't know what field I wanted to go in.
At the moment I was still living with my parents and searching for easy money making method and fast money-making strategies such as the stock market and cold calling/emailing.
I started reading the book and all I wanted to do was to finish the book as soon as possible and tell friends/family that I read this book.
My perspective was always thinking about others and make others happy.
I gave up because my reading speed was slow, English is not my native language and I didn't understand the book very well.

Growing up:
26284
Found out about audible.
I stopped reading the book and got a copy of the book in an app called audible. this app reads the books for you.
listened to "How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie". 3 times and finally started to understand the book. Then went back to paperback and started reading physical books.
If possible I will attach a screenshot of the books I have read in my audible account.

Not so perfect time :fire::moneybag:
26288
Business fails.
I was reading, listening and gathering knowledge from everywhere to figure out a purpose.
I wasn't applying what I was reading, because of this tiny reason I was as MJ DeMarco says "action faking".
Started a few businesses but failed miserably. Every single damn time!

Not Finished Yet!

One year Later:

After a year gap from uni, I started selling in Amazon and eBay which went good and I was making enough income to manage my self and be able to I've without my parent's support.
I was still reading/listening to books while learning a bit of marketing, sales, networking, writing. I learned skills that were mostly required to start a business.
As I had dealt with computers for almost all my life. I already knew how to develop websites, SEO and Promote, etc...
