I'm Sully.
So, 25 years into life and 'this feeling' hasn't left me since my first job (age 16). That first job was in quality control for a spray painting factory and yes, it was as boring as it sounds. Literally, watching paint dry.
'This feeling' I'm referring to, is of course the same feeling as I guess a lot of you will be experiencing currently / have experienced in the past, and that my friends, is financial freedom and independence to do whatever, the F*ck I like, with my days/nights/life.
I don't know if its just me, but I can't seem to switch off my brain / thinking. This thinking is never aimless, but instead a barrage of ideas, business conundrums and the meaning of it all. Its there when I wake up, ALL DAY at work (whatever job its been, good or shite - I see myself building someone else their fortune, to benefit their life and its like a gut punch everyday).
Ive made some money in my time so far on earth, its not the money solely that matters to me. I'm only 25 and ive had a reasonably handsome salary for the past 6 years. Its the lifestyle of independence that really excites me. Despite this excitement however, I'm now experiencing a truly "stuck feeling" - I have felt this before, but not at this magnitude.
I've always been afraid to ask for help, I was raised in a loving, but system conforming family who were proud, and so, asking for help has never really been part of my psyche.

I know I can do this -no youtube bullshit motivation videos are needed. All the like minded people of this community who read this and understand/can help with my situation then please reach out.
- this is not a beg or a plea, just asking for some help to help me get "un-stuck".

Currently I'm reading UNSCRIPTED and it has been a real eye opener so far - the best book I think ive ever read (business wise - you can't beat a good Carl Hiessen!)

Would love to make some new friends on this forum.

Hello Sully and welcome!

I'm reading this like it was written by myself! My brain is the same :) Couple of years ago I had constant problems with anxiety, sometimes still do now. So I couldnt sleep, I was always thinking, sometimes the whole night. F*cking exhausting. I hope it is not so bad for you though. Now it is better as I'm bit more mature (27) but the brain is working all the time and generating ideas.

Unscripted is awesome and like a wake-up call! I'm sure you will find a way to help people and provide value - and live the life you dream of. I'm at the beginning of my journey as well but I'm sure I will not stop until I'm there. Don't care if it takes 5 years or 25.

Great that you are here and never be afraid to ask help - if you are humble and truly wish to give before you get, then this forum is the right place to be in.

Strm,

Thank you for taking the time to comment and welcome me.
I did suffer from anxiety also, but I believe that sometimes is just a part of life if you let it be... I still struggle from time to time even now, but sometimes fear is what drives me (how f*cked up is the human brain...seriously! :happy: .

Looking forward to contributing and receiving knowledge from this huge brainstorming community - you never know who has your answers!

Great to talk, and thanks again!

Sully
