I don't know about you..but I've always been the guy to
SOLVE MY OWN DAMN PROBLEMS
I moved out from my parents when I was 16.
When I first was going to use the laundry machine I said to myself, "This is eeasy."
I got dressed in some not so stylish looking t-shirts the next few days.
It took some experimenting getting used to the fact that colours, fabrics and temperature all matters when making things happen.
Now, 15 years later, I'm very proficient and confident with using laundry machines.
WHY DIDN'T I ASK FOR HELP?
I didn't want anyone to know I DIDN'T know how to make my own laundry!
I have a similar experience with money.
My parents saved a lot of money for me. They put in a lot of money that I would get back as I grew up and left the nest. I had about 15.000$ that I could do whatever I wanted with!
But I had NO know-how.
People with no know-how and a lot of money rarely gets to keep them.
Within two years I was down to zero.
I FELT STUPID.
I was a student at this time. And I felt that I had to keep myself above poverty level somehow so I found myself teaching piano to people paying quite a lot of money to my employers..but not that much to me.
It really felt like someone was robbing me of time and throwing me some coins for the exchange.
But this was the only thing I knew how to do.
I FELT TRAPPED.
I quit that job.
Got another one with better a better pay-check and security surrounding the job.
But I still felt trapped.
WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
I've come to realize that I can't break out of my habits simply by thinking about them..
To get myself to do some serious action, and break free, I will need a guide.
It's exactly the same when learning an instrument!
You pay a teacher mostly to point you in the right direction. The rest of the work you have to do yourself.
But you want to know the direction, so you happily pay a mentor to guide you.
SO...WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
You could guessing what will work for you.
Or you could check out my mentors in money making.
They made me realise that making money is NOT about trading your time away.
That's acutally quite bad invested time.
It's mostly about knowing the right stuff, investing money (instead of just spending it, as I did) and taking some serious action.
