If only there were a disclaimer for posts as well..... no matter
I don't want to be held responsible for other people's bankruptcy, just my own :p
So getting to it... Yes, I just made myself unemployed. I did so knowing full well the situation I was getting myself in to.
I face bankruptcy, but fortunately I have no assets, no children, no wife... I rent and I have a good relationship with my parents so worst comes to worst, I live with Mum again :p
I know my character... I know myself very well. I can't be given an alternative, otherwise I'll tend towards procrastination.
I know that the only way I will be happy is with the Internet Lifestyle. I also know that the only way I'll achieve this is by working full time on it.
The reason I can't do an hour here and an hour there is because I procrastinate. I'm also an extremist so I like to focus all my energy on one thing. And when most of my energy is taken up asking 'Have you had any credit cards taken out before 2007?' all day to strangers on the phone then I know I need to change something.
We all know that success in IM comes primarily from action. The speed and magnitude of success comes from knowledge and effort. Now I know a fair amount about IM to be honest with you... from a theoretical standpoint. I could pass any test / quiz on IM, however practical application is only now on the cards.
So I now have a deadline... bankruptcy. I know it's a big risk but I also know that it's the only way I'll do what I have to do.
I think everybody would be the same... you cannot procrastinate if your life depends on it. Eliminate procrastination by giving yourself no other choice.
Not an ideal situation and certainly a dangerous one... but I know success is only a few weeks away.
All I need to do is make enough to cover rent and credit card repayments, and the rest can go on the plastic. I have around 5 months to begin turning a profit, functioning this way.
The end is in sight and I'm excited
Once again... don't follow my advice
Wish me luck if you like... but don't follow my advice
