    i have goals, i have motivation and i have a drive to get fucking RICH. whenever i see a bmw or a merc i imagine myself when im driving around in an sl65 amg, or a bmw m6.

    i never understood the world. we go to school, to get into university, so we can get a job, so we can make money.

    my plan is, make enough money so i can do WHATEVER I WANT.

    when is that point for you? when your account reaches 20 million usd? when you have 50k a month on autopilot?

    i will quit/teach someone else how to maintain the cashflow and give them 15% for maintaining it. my goal is to make 100k per month.

    thats when ill quit.

    I don't plan on ever quitting IM. It was thanks to IM that I was able to quit my 9-5 and I plan on keep expanding my operations for as long as I can. Of course, having goals is always healthy. But even when I reach 7 figures, I'm sure I'll keep doing it because I love it so much :)

    the end result, is the end result.
    i am enjoying the journey.
    people think that reaching a certain number in their life will change something.
    or help obtain happiness.
    it is good to have goals, no, it is essential - but don't judge the level of success by the digits in your bank account. I could care less about the merc sitting in my garage. it is fun, the chicks like it and it sure drives nice - but in the end, it's just a piece of metal.

    now seeing my competition's face on a sunny Sunday morning when Google page 1 is taken over by my little soldiers - now that, that is priceless!!

    I doubt I will ever quit, I might scale back the time I put into it someday if I have enough saved up, but to stop working, never. I would go nuts if I didn't have something to work on.

    Any monetary goals will end up as arbitrary moving targets, you will always want a little bit more.

    You don't need a set amount of money in the bank to be happy or enjoy life, find happiness in the small things and the freedom this gig allows you.

    I think I don't want the money. I want the feelings. I want the experience. Maybe I want the tap in my back and perhaps people talking about me.

    Money can buy things and help me travel and stuff, but the core issue is: emotions.

    Money is just paper and ink or digits in a screen. Zero meaning.

    They say Warren Buffet lives frugaly in a middle class house. Fuck that.

    My goal is steady, close to passive income (gotta get some income first). Which means I never quit because the income stream should still be streaming ... heh heh:cool:

    You can't just stop :) Once you start making money you can't force yourself out of it ;)

    So, unless I have a 100% passive income, i doubt that I'll ever stop doing IM. And even then I'll be thinking of ways to increase my earnings.

    You know, there comes a point in your life when you have to recap everything you've done so far and everything you're doing and decide - are you content with what you have, or you'd like to increase it, with the cost of your time and energy, of course.

    If you've read Dune you should know that:
    "Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere"
