    Well, I have a lot of things that I want to have and do with the consequences of the fast lane.
    But summarizing everything. My lambo is my time, I want to have 100% ofmy time. With this I want to inspire people, make people feel good things, create a legacy that transcend time

    Freedom in time, in what I can go do, in what I can afford to eat, in the quality of places I live. Freedom in all aspects of life; I don't care for anything fancy.

    Nothing more than that.

    My lambo?

    Something most people are scared to death of: Change.

    Changing big chunks of my life as it is now, gaining control, liberty, choice, creativity and a good night’s sleep.

    Control over my own life. Paying off that restricting mortgage. NOT giving my boy into daycare for 30 hrs a week, in order to work at a job, that I need to pay bills. Being able to NOT force my family into a system because I don’t seem to have another choice. Contributing value to not just one big company which does not even appreciate and/or want all the things you are doing. Liberty to help and give money, time and knowledge freely (my brothers mortgage, a home for my mother to grow old in in dignity, financial support for my cousin (4 kids, newly divorced), local community, the list doesn’t stop there. The liberty to give in to creative ideas (business and private) and not postponing them to “maybe never”. The choice to constantly learn new things. Sinking into a good book’s story without setting an alarm.

    And eventually a lifestyle.

    A cook? A help? A gardener? A physiotherapist/personal trainer? A pilot’s license? A gyrocopter? A sailing-license? An Oldtimer? Kayaking in Mongolia? Horseback riding in the Rocky Mountains? Snorkeling in Madagascar? Sailing to the Azores? Hiking in Austria? Visiting my family and friends as often and for as long as I want? Sleeping in and working in the wee hours of the night?

    But let’s not do all at once! I’ll just start by working until the wee hours of the night, and not sleeping in.

    Aston Martin v12 Vantage in 6-speed Manual. White with a jet black interior.

    More realistically I’ll probably get the V8 since I want this to be my daily driver.

    My first ‘lambo’ was my BMW 335i Coupe. I had it but it got rear ended. :(

    I haven't spoken to too many about my pie in the sky, but it's lofty.

    When I first started down this path, after reading TMF and TR's Awaken the Giant Within, I fleshed out all of my materialistic goals. While I do still want a private island with a landing strip in addition to a 100ft yacht with a helipad and room to park my Pagani safely onboard, I have evolved since then. Things that can be bought with money are losing more and more value as I travel down this path.

    It was about 3 years ago that I started having some health issues, primarily related to poor diet, lack of exercise, and sitting in front of a computer for 12-18 hours a day, 7 days a week. I have since rectified my poor habits and have "seemingly" undone a lot of the self inflicted damage. With that in mind, it was facing my own mortality that got my mind racing harder and faster than it ever had before. Searching frantically for answers, for solutions, and for preventative measures for many of the most treacherous maladies.

    It got me thinking, and intensely curious about how to overcome them. I had stumbled across some pretty amazing projects people were working on at the time, such as Ido Bachelet and his clamshell nanorobots that he and his team programmed to release chemotherapy drugs directly at cancer ridden cells. The claim was that this process could be used to cure any form of cancer, given they could identify specific markers to target it. (excuse any ignorant verbiage or assumptions here, again I am not a scientist). Last I heard about the project was they had a subject with Stage 4 leukemia with one month to live and they were going to use the nanorobots to cure the subject. Things went dark from there. Some more info -> Nanorobots made out of DNA seek and kill cancer cells

    This was all just so exciting to me to find out about. To really see how fast things are advancing in the field of medicine, to truly help not just individuals, but the masses. Every time I read about cures, or vaccines, or breakthroughs, the hair stands up on the back of my neck. My face gets flush, my eyes well up. It's a feeling of pure joy and pride for our species. The true marvel of human achievement. It's this feeling that I now crave. It's the end result that could potentially save humanity as we know it and create an end time for disease and even death.

    So I have been researching and taking notes since I've made this realization about myself and what I want to accomplish in life. I want to contribute in this field how I can with the goal being to organize and push towards these breakthroughs. This can take many forms, and I am still working out the details, but this is the long game for me.

    As far as getting there, the plan now is to build my company to sell, make enough from that sale to gain 100% control over my time and finances for the rest of my life to be able to 100% focus on this endeavor. It's all in the works.

    I suppose I am torn. On the one hand, I am exhausted and want / need a break from the day job ... mostly to recharge.
    On the other hand, I would really love to run a technology company that rides the waves of technological progress and eventually positively impact the lifes of a billion people that way (Singularity University style massively transformative purpose).

    Part of the target lifestyle are a luxurious home, sparring (PFS?) with robots and regular rapid skill acquisition experiments.

    I have taken a Ferrari for some laps at a small track and if its a car that's what I'd choose.

    I think the Lambo is ourselves growing incrementally through daily habits and fulfilling our potential while helping out others to do the same. Help family, help friends, help those in need.

    Sounds weird, but i'm having the best days if i was able to directly help someone and improved their day / life. If money was no concern i would organize "come-togethers" for homeless people, providing food and drinks, the ability to get a proper shave and haircut, maybe even showers or a place to wash and buy some second hand clothes for them to change theirs. Some might even be able to get their lifes back on track, which i'd genuinely enjoy.

    If money was no concern i would more often approach homeless people to ask them what they need (maybe it's just some food or a pair of new shoes or whatever it is) and then offer to provide it for them.

    I would like to be able to sometimes pay for grocery purchases of elders (when i see them counting their spare change and maybe putting things aside if they don't have enough money) or seemingly single mothers with a lot of kids that have to pay 200-300 € just for the most necessary goods. General just people that seem like they have a hard time providing for themselves.

    Improving the overall situation for our animal shelters in germany would be another concern. Just beeing able to organize / provide what they need (medical care, equipment for their animals, new constructions etc.) would really make my day.

    I don't need much for myself. A small place to life which i can call my own (debtfree), maybe a hobby car (still in love with the Mitsubishi Starion 2600GS and the Datsun 240Z). Owning my own time and the ability to travel the world is my personal priority.

    If you have enough money, why hold onto it like it's "your precious"? How does 100.000$ per month make you any more happy than 10.000 $ per month? Both is enough to live like a king. It's about what you do with it and give back to society, not how much you have.

    My lambo will be the moment I will have spent the necessary money on my eyes, teeth and general health. That would be my Huracan.

    My Aventador SV would be the moment I will have paid back the hard work my parents did since I'm born by paying their mortgage and debts they accumulated because of their children to make them happy... and being able to focus on their health and happiness.

    All the other fluff rolling in my mind are just "Nice to have" things, like a safe yet performant and stylish car that's not too expensive (used Stinger GT in a few years?) yet comfy enough for my girlfriend and I. Useless dreams would be a Tesla Roadster for me and a Model X for my parents (safest SUV IIRC). I wouldn't say no to a McLaren either. Before all the expensive cars (excluding the Stinger GT) I would love a house where you don't hear the neighbors.

    If you would've asked me this few years ago, I would say a car like a 70-80s Porsche (still on the list) but now I would say travel would be a priority so I can see the world and teach my kid(s) about other things in life than being a materialist.

    I want to be able to afford to buy a house in cash. I also want to be able to do anything I want without worrying about the cost. Family trip to Disney World? No problem. An actual Lamborghini would be nice, too. However, I'm more of an Aston Martin kind of guy.

    Freedom of my time is my Lambo. I don't care about material things, but I would like to have enough money to live a good life, travel A LOT, and not have to worry about running out of money.

    I'm not sure I'd call it my "Lambo", as my desire for bigger toys isn't really a driver of my motivations. Like many, my time and freedom to do what I want, when I want, are what really drive me.

    The Cirrus Vision personal jet would be an extension of this freedom to go anywhere, whenever. Costs a heck of a lot more than a Lambo, though, and let's just say that I'd need more than a little fastlane success to afford and operate it.

    Leading up to that, though, I would be attaining the highest ratings possible for private pilot's license, and I suppose this part would be closer to my actual "Lambo." [​IMG]

    Noooooooo!



    My #1 thing has always been freedom. In AZ there's a bunch of private communities with air-strips and I can honestly tell you that I've considered them. I can't fly a plane but considered learning, but the idea of taking off whenever/wherever has a certain amount of appeal. Freedom is expensive to begin with, but "freedom augmenters" can be super-expensive.

    My Lambo is(was) a totally custom Toyota FJ Cruiser that I could drive anywhere. Funny that I joined this forum that many years ago, back in 2011, when they actually made FJ's. Currently, I have no car, rent and Uber everywhere. I live in the city and parking is $400/mo, so I sold my car in 2014. Get this.. I bought a brand new Subaru wagon(4x4 full package), back in 2004. From 2004-2014, I only put 20,000 miles on the car. So I sold it. But.. when I leave this city when my daughter goes to college I am buying a new car, again! I miss having one.

    But this is a good analogy for my business situation; I started this account 8 years ago. The car is outdated and not in production anymore. I have procrastinated on my business by working full time in a corporate gig. This is a good reminder I need to get off my butt and get working....
