I've had a f*ck this moment to go to the gym, to stop drinking alcohol and another one to eat healthy. What was your entrepreneurial FT moment? Do you think having one is mandatory?

Seeing people more successful than me. And becoming angry every time.
It's a very great trigger if you know how to channel that anger on actions that get you closer to your goals.

Plus to that, the realization that time is running out. Having deadlines is mandatory.
I told myself I wanted to become a millionaire before 25. I'm 20 now, but just having that deadline makes me remember every single day that the clock is ticking.

Remove the bad habits first. Instill new, productive habits for second.
You can't desire to win in real life if your dopaminergic system is currently hooked on hyper-realities (whether it's watching TV series, playing videogames, porn & so on...). That's why so many people walk around like zombies.

Stupid ignorant and rude people are what make me want to reach higher and higher levels of value.

Each one I run into is an mini drop of F*ck this.

Forget the self help speak and focus on consistent action that is constantly improving. Act assess adjust.

For 17 years I watched others build companies, products, etc, and fail, then I decided I was done with watching and decided to do my own thing. Not sure if it's mandatory, but it sure can be motivating.

I fell into my business trying to help someone. So no, I don’t think an FTM is mandatory.
