Hey fastlaners.

I devoted myself to this road around a year ago, and I changed a lot. Relationships with people in my current environment don't satisfy me anymore. I want to create friendships with ambitious people who have a why, and not just living life to pay the bills and have drink in their free time.

My question is, where do I find those people??!! I live in Berlin and I feel like the vibe of the city in general is very loose and I don't have an idea where to meet those people. I've tried facebook groups and events but didn't really work. Maybe I'm too ambitious?... I seriously want to move just because of this problem.

So please help me, where did you meet your ambitious friends?

If you want to meet gym bros, where do you go? The gym
Basketball players? The court
Footballers? The pitch

If you want to find Fastlaners, then get on the Fastlane.

Your entry into this forum is the first step.

But no one is going to be friends with you simply because you say you're ambitious, you need to actually do the actions associated with this ambition of yours, only then will you begin to attract the right people, online and offline.

The fastlane is a good place to start.
Just by posting that topic, hundreds of people will see it and some will respond.

You're absolutely right. I do believe that I do the ambitious actions. I have a vision and I am committed to bringing it to reality. I have created successful habits. I spend my time wisely, mostly on educating myself. I even sometimes have to hide these things because people in my environment think I am crazy.

I will take your advice and try to be active here and attract the energy I already am. Thank you!!

that's true! I think I got a little bit depressed after searching fastlaners in wrong places and not finding them. I can already see the power of this forum and I'll use it wisely. Thanks Max!

Your welcome. We could be ambitious friends if you want. The problem is, I don't know what your standards are and neither your goals.

Perhaps private messaging would be better?

Absolutely this place is gold.

But also seriously, there's no one in Berlin?

I have a friend who left London for a tech start-up accelerator in Berlin - it's one of the major tech start-up hubs in Europe. There are definitely people trying to grow unicorns there :rofl:

I don't know if tech is your scene, but even if it isn't, you could find a like-mind there. What events did you try?


But also yes, when the time comes, it is absolutely worth flying from Europe for the Fastlane Summit.

There are some people from Germany already in this forum. You can meet them here as like-minded fastlaner people.
I think I saw a thread which country/state you are you from - something like that.

yeees there are a lot of tech^ies here :D I tried the most famous coworking spaces' and accelerator's events. there are some founders for sure, but I haven't yet met someone who is really focused on work and enjoying it. They mostly enjoy beer more :D

I didn't know about the summit! thanks for letting me know! hopefully it will happen next year :praise:

Maybe focus on delivering value to the market and building your own business. A person in motion is a powerful thing. It creates a vacuum and people get pulled towards you.

Personally, I like providing a B2B service - I rub shoulders with business owners every day.

TL;DR ... Become the tuna and the cats will find you.

You enter empty room.
You look around.
If there is mirror then it's two of you.

I love this mindset Andy!!! Thanks for sharing. You are absolutely right. I am indeed trying this to my fullest, maybe I just need to let it go and that will automatically attract the cats :smile2:

I just realized you have Berlin in bio, ain't startup incubators etc. there?
Maybe hang around with them.

I think i read somewhere that Berlin is quite an European startups hub

yes there are a lot! but I don't sense the fastlane vibe from them. their life view is a bit different, like I explained above. They love their startup but they love drinking and being lazy too (I think.) So I don't benefit from them in terms of growth and I cannot benefit them either since we have different life visions. Not all, of course, there are exceptions. I hope it makes sense :smile2:

yes it does but its a bit of surprise for me :)

the last idea would be to find events that are organized by people from States,
or maybe even people from some VC firms from US, that would lift you up and maybe you would find someone of similar mindset among attendees,
Good Luck!
