    Meh, I was going to write a long ass post about what I've learned and all of that other stuff but I don't want to be wasting your or my time so I'm just going to write a few sentences without organizing or structuring anything.

    I've realized that the most important thing you can do is to make the right choice now and not later or tomorrow. NOW is the key that we all so often forget. We live for tomorrow, or we live in the past when we should be living in the now and making the right choices now.

    I've also realized that we have too many distractions that stop us from reaching our goals. We easily get distracted by the countless bullshit that goes on around us, we get lost in it and we lose track of what we really wanted to achieve or what we really wanted to do. It is therefore very important to set specific and timely goals that you keep track of. Some would use the term SMART goals, I personally don't like that term because it's been institutionalized (if that makes any sense) and feels too rigid.

    I've made a lot of mistakes, wasted a lot of time and I'm no longer willing to waste any more. I need a fresh start, I need to empty my cup to see and learn what I have overlooked.

    Take out what you wish from this thread, I'm here to say goodbye to ShadeDream and welcome a new better self.

    Mods/Admins, feel free to disable this account as ShadeDream will not be coming back.


    I wish all of you a Happy New Year and send good luck your way! 2015 will be a year of change, hopefully for the better for us all.

    Sorry to see you go buddy. Good to see you taking some action but BHW can still be useful to you in future projects. Why don't you just take a break for a few months and see how much extra you get done and weigh up if time spent on the net was actually time wasted ?

    Similar feeling to t0mmy. The active members are getting less and less familiar to those of just a few months ago.

    Good Luck ShadeDream.

    I remember the days you were still a standard VIP member and I started my journey.

    Sad to see you go, but i'm glad we both learned something from this forum.

    Internet Marketing is the modern day gold rush, everyone wants a piece of the market share but only a select few end up getting anything out of their time.

    May your next adventure bring better luck, use your time wisely this time around though as you can only go forward.

    distractions are definitely a huge part of why a lot of people fail. You need to have a focused mind.
