And time is moving faster than I can think.

If I don't learn to move and make decisions faster, I will be left out in the dust, dying a lonely unfufilled soul with nothing in his bank account. Despised, and forgotten.

I keep telling the lie that I have time, but I don't. I am quickly running out of it.

In about 50 more years I will almost be dead.

I am still trying to adjust to adulthood.

I know I am talking about myself and complaining, but it feels damn good to get this off my chest. Tired of holding this **** in.

    Don't worry about it. In October I'll be 53, and I'm still trying to adjust to adulthood.

    Arguing with an idiot is like playing chess with a pigeon.
    It'll just knock over all the pieces, poop on the board, and strut about like it's won anyway.

      Heck I turned 62 last May and still haven't hit adulthood. I did fine out what I'd be when I grew up though. Tall, skinny. and bald.

    LOL, don't worry you will grow out of it!

    Sorry, but this cracked me up, true that Tessler ended up that way, but he was also offered 3 million for his current concept, and blew the lot on more inventions!

    But some oil sociopaths didn't help either!

    Make decisions faster, l wished that l had made decisions slower, then l would have not made so many dumb moves and wasted tones of time in the process?

    If someone mentioned Graphicriver 7 years ago, then l could have made an earlier start and be a few years ahead, or earning 20k a year, instead of pocket money!

    Although l am quickly figuring out how to make good money over there?

    If you make quick decisions then you could spend years at it, before realizing that it doesn't work. Or isn't working for you!

    If you instead take your time, sift through all the options and seek expert advise, on what really works and what doesn't, then you can get to where you want to be a lot quicker.

    Although be careful with expert advise or someone selling this or that course, they will usually promise certain things to get your signup and then don't deliver, (did one of those). Or they became successful through dumb luck and try to help you to become successful on something similar, (a bit like winning lotto, and trying to help you to do the same, for a price of course).

    Get over yourself. You are barely out of puberty.

    I didn't start my first business until I was 30. I am now 46. That is 2/3 of your lifetime, and I am a universe away from where I started.

    How old you are is MUCH less important than your attitude. Snap out of all the self pity, and chart your course. Starting now would give you a huge advantage over most of your peers.

    Or, don't. As I have no doubt told you before, we will always need people who know how to ask if we want our meals supersized. If not you, then who will fill that important role?

      Thank you very much for this Jack.

      This genuine response does make me curious about your 1000 page manifesto.

      We should learn from this guy. The best kind of promotion is non-promotion.

      Thanks Jack.

    Yes, and obviously ignoring good advise?

    Sounds more like you are hoping for a pat on the back or better yet a shiny object to chase after?

    Best to do one or more courses, and a few online ones, and learn from experience what works and what doesn't?

    Then come back here complaining about course X, leaving you high and dry or not offering what it advertised, etc.


    Then listening to our advise again, and sticking with one thing no matter what!


    And sticking with one thing means, a couple of major failures, and setbacks, some small successes, and years of hard work.

    Then slowly figuring out how the elite do it, and doing something similar!


    That is the real truth, take it or leave it?

      Huh?

      This post had nothing to do with Internet Marketing.

        I thought that this was the main reason for this thread?


        But since you have been banned, apart from me having the last word, it sounds like you tried to take a short cut to wealth here, and it bit you on the ......!

        No shortcuts!

        But legal, ethical shortcuts are possible!

        Learning to focus and work hard isn't just applicable to Internet marketing. It isn't even just for the self-employed.

        As part of the process of building myself back up after being in a very dark place, I had to work a regular "day job" from 2011 to April of this year. All I did was focus on the job (while I was there) and ignored my neighbors and their constant grumblings. By the end of those four years, I was able to earn a full-time living from them with half-time hours, and walked away with $6k of regular savings plus a $12k retirement account, an iPad Mini and an all-expense-paid incentive trip for two to the US Virgin Islands. None of this was from self-employment; this was simply from a constant attitude of working hard and focusing.

    I'd say don't worry! I'm 22 too and I have constant WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE moments. I think it's just symptomatic of being in your early twenties. Just try to pursue what makes you happy and things have a way of working themselves out!
