    to blackhatworld and all its contributing members that made enjoying this website one of the best experiences i've ever had, thank you

    this is my 100th post, and this officially carries me to jr.VIP status. :D

    i will take this opportunity to talk about my story and experiences with blackhatworld that have allowed me to change the course of my life. though different than most "rocky" stories, i believe it shows a very different point of view...any feedback appreciated, sorry if its long. :eek:

    6 months ago, i was a teen with very few options in life..

    first of all, im from the middle east, bahrain. i was a regular-ish/unpopular highschool senior, bad grades caused by ADHD, little to no chance of getting into college and finding a future. i had an average number of friends, and couple of girls here and there, but hey..."im cute" :p

    ladies and gentlemen, i lived in the "box".

    about 4 months ago i took my first step out of that box. i got into the seduction community and learned some vital skills about relaxing and human interaction. i flourished and grew a hefty social circle at the my school and more importantly the american school [ahh....white girls..:rolleyes:] satisfied, i put my studies into human nature and my social life on hold.

    motivated by a deal with my father over a new bmw135i for university :cool: , i brought my grades up, i worked as hard as humanly possible to pull 3 F's and 4 D's up to 1 A, 2 B's, and all C's.

    my surprisingly extraordinary essay about my story allowed me acceptance into La Salle university, i had a future.

    somewhere in that process i realized what was happening, i was dropping my MMORPG's, and instead settling into the routine i will follow for the rest of my life.. :eek:

    would i limit my gaming time? work everyday like a slave just to please my bosses? i killed myself to get those grades. there's no way.

    i couldnt face that idea.

    i told my father i would not be studying banking/finance.

    the line of work that earned him his millions, the one that has provided for my home, food, shelter and all the other goodies he bought for me and the rest of my family.

    "my son, the investment banker" no more.

    my surprisingly extraordinary essay about my story allowed me acceptance into La Salle university, i had a future :)

    2 months before the end of school, and im scrambling, i couldnt make up my mind... i knew it was computers, i just didnt know what yet...

    i sign up to take computer science at La Salle, an ironically catholic school, contrary to my mixed islamic/darwinistic beliefs.

    my hobbies led me to decide on being a game developer, so i went with that for a while, but realized the job had a very limited earning potential.

    i still inherited my father's love for money..:eek:

    i knew of IM for a while, but i just didnt think about it.

    enter ewen chia. ;)

    a combination of looking at ewen's audi R8 on his website and listening to "piece of me" by britney spears had a drug like effect on me..
    i was aware of all the fakers out there.. i knew most of these people didnt make all this money.

    but i knew ewen actually owned this stuff...

    motivated, i bought some crap ebooks, fatefully ending up here on a page indexed by google :)

    im ashamed of it now, but ill be honest. i joined, downloaded all i could and immediately asked for help on how i should start making money.

    0 replies. :confused:

    well, i read the forum, diamond dave's sticky on "blackhat success" struck my very core...

    i read everything... everything. i eventually gobbled it all up and am now relying on the famed 'new posts' button

    its been just over a month, but i learn fast.

    i picked my weapons, i chose blogs and automated sites for instant income and one long-term business i would work on. with the help of all of you i set up a game plan, and i am now executing it. with limited investment from my personal funds and from my father..i was able to begin all 3 of my chosen methods and i am beginning to sniff profits. true to my fathers personality, i also plan on aquiring established websites and lettg them blossom under my guidance. my life is on track to be earning well over my initial goal of 5 thousand dollars a month by the end of the year, bringing me to quadruple my father's first after-master's degree entry level job. :D :D :D

    and a college freshman at that.


    :rolleyes: though very short. its been a great journey here at BHW, i was able to find my calling, and myself. i am determined to continue to move forward along with all of you getting to the point where we can start creating the lives of our dreams.


    to all those members who are on the path to making their dreams come true.

    to all those members that are living their dreams

    thank you

    Congrats mak111on your success you are prof that taking action works.
    You picked a plan and did something instead of asking others to do it for you.

    is that all you got out of my story... kinda shallow of you.

    dude, i have no control over the fact that i was born to my family, my dad has money, so what? so will your kid if you have one.

    why does it make my story different. i worked, and made something outta myself

    i mentioned it was a different point of view, there's no reason to attack me like that..

    really uncalled for bro..

    scratch that last post, i was too fast...

    worldly, although i was brought in to a family with money, my dad earned his money from scratch, and i was taught the value of a dollar. i am not the the brat you might picture, and i definitely was not spoilt. (i wish i was tho ill tell you that)

    the gem of the story, i believe, is that i paved my own way through life and did not rely on my father.

    thats where i believe my success is.

    though you might not like me very much now, ive read and read alot of your posts and i do take you in high regard.

    "One Good Insight, with Action Is Worth a Thousand Good Ideas..$$$ "

    this is actually what pushed me to go through with my plunge and start my first project (link below)

    i hope that even though you have a tinted view of me now, we grow to be come good friends, as you were a direct influence of my current success :)

    so i guess i owe it to you in a way :D

    mak111 ,
    Nice 100th post, Your story inspires many here.

    One thing is sure, if you think you can do it, you will;
    but, if you think whether or not, failure is some steps ahead.

    Good look, all folks here for their future success.
