    Hello everyone. I wanted to share something with you which I found very inspiration. Reading this literally changed my mind, at least to some point helped me realise that my issue was with my mindset and not only my skills. To some point I know few things which could help me make money, but thinking too much makes me think of the obstacles and not concentrate on the journey. We have a saying which is something like this interpreted to English: "While the smart guy is thinking, the crazy has walked half of the way". This advice was given to me by my uncle which is a millionaire but also reading the post below has motivated me so much and I wanted to share with you guys this Anonymous post shared on QA website platform. This is not my text, as mentioned it is an anonymous writer and because it has inspired me so much, I wanted to share this with the people looking for something like this to take action. I hope this will be useful and make an impact in your life for the better.

    Note for the admins: If this type of posts (reposts) are not allow please excuse my not knowing. I am new and want to have positive impact on the community. Of course if this is not allowed I am sorry.

    Okay. Here is the anonymous post that inspired me:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I’m 24 years old and I’m a self-made millionaire. I started from literally zero. Here’s what I did:


    1. you need to sell something. To be a millionaire, you have to sell 1000 units of a $1000 product. Or 10000 units of a $100 product. You get the idea.
    But how EXACLY do you do that? Well, there are a lot of ways, for sure. Let me explain to you what I did.

    I have an online business, and I sell stuff on this thing we call internet. You see, we humans have desires, and we buy things to fulfil these desires. Some people want to lose weight, some people want to learn how to make money (for example, you).

    So… you need to pick one desire that you want to fulfil. Let’s say you chose the “lose weight” desire. Great. Now you need to do two things: first, learn how to fulfil this desire. And second, learn how to sell your solution.

    So, let’s say you went on the internet, read the 3 most famous books on how to lose weight, then wrote your own book about it with the most important things you learned. Then, you hired some designers to create an ebook for you.

    This ebook will be your product. After that, you decided to be smart and see what OTHER PEOPLE THAT ALSO ARE SELLING WEIGHT LOSS EBOOKS ARE DOING.

    In your research, you discover that they have a sales page like this one (https://theshepherdscode.com/lp-q-tscmainp1), and that they have a VSL (video sales letter), and also they do not have only one ebook, but several.

    You, being a smart guy who do not want to lose money, simply COPY EVERYTHING THAT IS ALREADY WORKING FROM THESE GUYS, and you create your own VSL, your own website.

    You do that because they already did all the marketing research and validation for you. Plus, you want to get results ASAP, and not mess around.

    Now, my friend, you have a product, and a market that wants to buy it (because they want to lose weight). All you need now is to learn how to drive people to your website, and see how they respond to what you have to sell.

    So, that’s the first thing to do, and also a way to do it quickly and easily.

    Here are some books you might want to read about it:

    1. Expert Secrets - Russel Brunson
    2. The Boron Letters - Gary Halbert. This book will talk about exploiting niches. And it will open a new world from you.
    3. Everything you can get your hands on from David Ogilvy, John Carlton, Gary Bencivenga, Claude Hopkins, Victor Schwab, John Caples, Ted Nicholas, Jay Abraham, Todd Brown, Dan Kennedy, Kevin Rogers, Clayton Makepeace. These guys will teach you how to sell anything with your words. That’s an amazing skill to have.
    Okay, let’s move on.

    2. You need to have the right mindset.

    This is so, so, so important! You need to have the right things on your mind before you even start to execute on your plan.

    If you read my little plan above and the first thing that came on your mind was “Nah, it probably doesn’t work because there are already a lot of people selling ebooks, or e because reason X, or reason Y, etc), then, my friend, you already lost.

    Here are some books that you need to read and people that you need to start following on social media:

    1. Think and grow rich - Napoleon Hill. This is one will be your main book about mindset. I don’t know why, but this think about thinking positively DOES work.
    2. Psycho-cybernetics - Maxwell Maltz.
    3. Black Privilege - Charlamagne Tha God: this one will teach you all the basics about what it takes to be successful.
    4. Gary Vaynerchuck. Follow this guy, and watch his video “advice for 20 something” on youtube.
    These 3 books can get you started.

    I hope it helps.

    It’s 14:06 here in Brazil. I’ve already made more money today than my mother will make in the next two years. And I’m 24.

    So yeah, it’s worthy it.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I hope after reading this, you took something useful as I did. Thank you for your time!

    All it takes is never giving up on what you can do best , you do something that makes you 1,000 then you got to put in work 10 more times to make 10,000 ...and the cycle goes on and on till you reach million

    Don't think it will be easy, prepare to fail miserably.
    I know that a lot of people here will give you advice that makes you feel hopeful or motivated, but realize that it's all just pure theory and wishful thinking.

    The reality is that barely 0.7% of this forum will ever hit the 1 million. You'll have to make a ton of sacrificies and go through hell and back, and with just 1 million you won't be able to live comfortably for the rest of your life either. 1 Million is nothing nowadays.

    Kid – if you want to achieve a meaningful income by the time you’re 25

    1) Knowing the right people (terms of opportunities, hook-ups, knowledge)

    2) Surround yourself with go-getters

    3) Character resilience (you’ll make mistakes, mess things up and learning and carrying on is key to success – my quote is “You either win or learn, not win or lose”

    Books/videos help motivate you, but you shouldn’t rely on them for that motivation, this needs to come from within which you get taste for when you’ve made a good amount of money. It’s addictive.

    you’re much better off just going ahead with things and learning as you go.

    If you want it that badly, you should know money isn’t everything but it certainly gives you freedom the more you have.

    Best of luck buddy, you’ll do great I’m sure.

    Tip from us, work hard every day and your goal will come true sometime. Remember that you can bounce off any bottom.

    True!
    Very true! My friend dropped out of uni few years ago to be a fitness coach using Instagram. Now he literally 10x his life. And the funny part, when he dropped out all teachers were “realistic”. Damn it wasnt easy for him, people used to laught at him because obviously in the begging he was learning to coach, speak and improve his Instagram game. As you said, if you can dream it, you can achieve it! It’s the law of attraction, or whatever you call it! But the work has to be there!

    The most concrete piece of advice is to ignore all the things most of your peers are doing. While they go out and drink themselves to death - stay at home and build landing pages. When they are planning to get stoned, you plan your campaigns. Chase ROI instead of cheap, uninteresting women. Invest into your health, knowledge and money. Sacrifices must be made to finish the line at 25.

    Do a web mogul deal, and sell your soul to the CIA, in exchange for them guiding your spying program designed as a social community to million or billion dollar mega status. Worked for Zuckerberg.

    Firstly Never give up when things goes the wrong way. Believe in yourself and aim for the target.

    Ok, now you're inspired, you're done with that.

    Your next step is to open up a Journey thread and start posting everyday bullet-points of the work you did that day for moving forwards towards your goal.

    15 hours a day towards your goal no excuses. 105 hours a week no excuses

    EVERYDAY
    EVERYWEEK

    FOR THE NEXT 7 YEARS
    -
    SACRIFICE EVERYTHING
    -
    NOTHING ELSE MATTERS

    15 hour days 7 days a week for the next 7 years =

    • 2555 days in 7 years
    • 15 hours time x 2555 = 38,325 hours
    the average american works 40 hours a week
    there are 168 hours in a week
    8 hours of sleep a day in a week = 56
    56 minus 168 hours in a week =112 hours
    112 minus 40 hours average american work week = 72 hours left

    that means the average American has 72 hours left in a week to put towards their goal
    that also means you have 72 hours to use that the average american doesn't in a week to reach your goal and gain an advantage



    • you have the same 38,325 hours until 25 as every 18 year old
    • the difference is how are you going to use every single one of these hours
    once their gone they never come back.
