    I skip hanging out with friends all the time just so that I can work. I am willing to sacrifice a social life for something I want so badly - Success.

    My question is how bad do you want success? What do you give up everyday for it?

    This video is so true. Watch it.

    You'd be surprised that your social life can actually help your business. Connections are beyond important.

    Wow man, really motivating but how many of us can actually make this stick to our minds and use this as a motivator?

    I like this video. Thanks for sharing.

    I didn't mean entirely not having a social life, just reduced. Of course it is important :)

    This is true only to a point.

    To some people, being social is going out to the movies everyday.

    To others, being social is playing at your local golf/tennis club, etc.

    If you're an internet marketer, the best partners you will find are in the BHW JV section.

    If you're an offline businessman, then yes, socializing is important so you can make more friends = possible business connections.

    However, just partying hard every night and getting poon is a different kind of socializing.

    So do what works.

    I'm only a high school student, and I usually have 1 hour and 20 minutes for lunch.

    I noticed that I was pretty much wasting that time eating lunch... Well seriously. My campus allows us to leave whenever we want, as long as we come back for class. So I usually go with friends to the mall everyday and spent lots of $$ for a lunch. To be honest, this gets repetitive and boring (but the food is alright). I don't meet anyone new, and it's just bleh..

    So I decided to brown bag my lunch and eat it in class (my teachers let me), and when lunch time comes I do my homework in the school library.

    That way, when I come home I have more time to focus on my "projects" (IM, PUA, etc.)

    I know, some people think I'm a loser who does homework doing lunch, well I don't really give a fuck because I am above the influence (everybody's trying to be popular these days) and I will never see my high school friends again, and college is a totally new life. So I gotta focus on what is productive..

    Honestly I dont have that much of a social life because I really am not that interested in having one. So I dont have to sacrifice to much for IM. I have a bit of a schizoid personality if you know what that is (besides when it comes to smoking, any toker is my friend and Im all ways down to chill if we're smokin XD). So that leaves me with a lot of time, because I am not interested in much besides IM right now and I dont do school work outside of school(have my priorities :p). I think this life style will work out just fine for me too in terms of success, in a month I should have my projects going full throttle, and; if all goes well, I will be making bank and at that point I will be able to work less because I will just pay people to do everything for me. I agree though, if you really want success it has to be a top priority.

    I thought I would hate that video (usual whoop ass shit) but it was very powerful and I am now going to get off my fat arse and do something positive instead of reading through more of the posts here as I have done for the last 4 hours.

    Excellent and thanks given.

    I've been putting in 19 hour days for the past 4 months. The bad news is was starting to affect my health so I'm starting to trim back a bit. The good news is it's working and becoming easier. I have doubled my salary within those 4 months. I want it and will get it. Good video. I will pass this on to some of my lazy friends that are already asking me for money. ha.

    This rings home...I used to go out a lot and meet girls as much as possible trying to nail as many as possible. In the process I went from big balla status to broke status.

    I have had to make a 180 and I don't go out anymore and I refuse pussy so I can work my ass off. It is quite odd however it must be done.

    The trick is figuring out how you can have both. That is what I am working on right now. I figure you have to get the $$ coming in first then you can get the rest and have both.

    Thank you very much for that video. I am certain it will affect my life. Some people think you should always have a balance between work, social, family etc...

    Unfortunately, while you are sleeping or socializing there is someone taking away your opportunity who is willing to give up all that balance shit. The definition of capitalism at its core in my opinion.

    I now have 2 phrases I paste in the office.

    1. Your life is ending one day a time.

    2. Do you want to be rich as bad as you want to breath?

    This really is a great video! Sometimes its hard to keep moving forward when you feel like you might be missing out on the things going on right now, thats a short term fear of mine and I accept it as that... My long term fear is to not be able to support my family and create a legacy for myself for the decades to come... Forget the small things going on right now and keep looking out on the horizon because thats where the future comes from!!! -Good luck all-
