One of the questions I’m now asked the most is when someone should take the leap of faith. I wish there was a good black and white answer to this question, but there’s just not. Every situation, person, and life is different. To give a linear answer would be doing a disservice. Instead, I think it’s important to take into account many factors before making such a large decision.
The first question is to ask yourself how much you truly hate your job. Is it a scenario where it’s having an impact on your health? This could be anywhere from arthritis from sitting all day to contemplating suicide. It’s quite the spectrum. How much longer can you last at your job before you make the leap; off the building, not into entrepreneurship.
If the answer is “not long”, well, you’ve got work to do. You’ll be best off tackling jobs that pay you by your work, instead of passive income systems. There’s nothing wrong with it, but you must realize that you’re simply still working for someone else, albeit with your name on the company. It also comes with a lot more responsibility. Of course, the goal is to build passive streams of income that work for you. Something that gains in value over time and provides you with the financial means to live your life.
Where are you now and where do you want to go?

PS: This post was originally sent to my email list. I got such an incredible response from it and hopefully really helped some guys out. so you don’t miss out.
A common pitfall that I see a few younger guys get caught up in is lack of patience for the red pill process. Many of these things take time to build and execute. I didn’t start breaking free and actively creating what I wanted until I was 25. Even then, I had to tear down things that didn’t work in exchange for better ideas.
All these things take time. Remembering to slow down and ground yourself in an “ongoing” process is one of the keys to victory.
Nail on the head there. A lot of it is just doing and waiting—which sucks.
It took me half of last year to realize that.
It’s such a strange thing… Why do we do that? – wait.
Maybe it’s fear. Fear of actually accomplishing something. The hefty anchor of guilt stopping us from doing great things.
Fear of success is a real thing man, a lot of people have it. Shocks me.
