Here and Now

So here I am.  A normal college student writing my first blog post.  The idea for a blog sprung into my head last night during a long drive.  I have my dreams and aspirations just like everyone else, but the more people who know about your dreams, the better chance you have of achieving them.  I am putting mine out there for everyone to see.  Think about it – if you’re on a diet, but no one knows about it, it’s really easy for you to be okay with cheating on a meal or workout or whatever.  You don’t feel so bad about it because no one is holding you accountable but you.  If you tell everyone about your diet via facebook or twitter or your blog or whatever, you feel guilty when you let yourself down.  

The first thing that I will tell you about myself is my end goal.  I want to be a billionaire.  I want to be the best at what I do.  I think I know what my mode is for getting there at this point, but we’ll see how it goes.  The difference between the ultra-successful and normal people is that the ultra-successful failed many more times than the normal people.  Feel free to bash me and my goals – I welcome it.  Part of success is overcoming adversity.  I’m not here to be realistic with myself.  I’m here to try and achieve goals.  And here’s a simple breakdown.  If my goal is a worth of $1 billion, and I am a complete failure and only ever achieve 1% of my dream, then I still have $10 million.  I can work with that.  If you set yourself up to win regardless of your level of success or failure in achieving your goals, it becomes pretty hard to lose.

Realism is not a trait of the ultra-successful.  The Wright brothers were not being realistic when they thought up the idea of the airplane.  Walt Disney was not being realistic when he decided to create a worldwide empire based on a cartoon mouse.  Michael Jordan was not being realistic when he set out to be the greatest basketball player of all time.  Warren Buffet was not being realistic when he started working toward his fortune and becoming the greatest investor ever.  These people didn’t get there by accident.  They started at the same place as everyone else, but they had goals that were far greater than the goals of the average person.  Unrealistic goals.

Throughout this blog I will never reveal my identity.  I have nothing to hide, I just want to avoid my friends and family asking me questions and knowing everything about my quest to riches.  I will be open on this blog and will answer any questions anyone asks, as long as they are appropriate.  I plan to document everything I do to make money and everything I do to lose money.  I will show screenshots of my accounts as proof.  I am not a writer and I am really not too concerned about grammar or misspellings or any of that kind of stuff.  Feel free to bash me in the comments.  I might learn something, I might not.  I am trying to write this blog as if I were speaking to you.  This is how I talk.  As long as it makes sense, I’m happy with it.  Also, I probably won’t even spell check a lot of these posts or reread them.  There will be mistakes.  Comment if you have a problem with it.  I will be going by the pen name Brutally Honest in order to maintain my anonymity.  At some point in the near future, I will be on social media.  I am also trying to find a way to track my net worth on this site, like some sort of graph or tracker or whatever.  If you have any advice, please comment.  I’m open to everything.  I will update the blog each time I join a social media site and when I get that magical tracker.  I’m new to wordpress and don’t really know the ins and outs yet, so bare with me.
