You should totally uit and just buckle down and work hard to do something you really like He acknowledges that some folks are playing the Game of Life at different difficulty levels and I have to think that his background colors his experience It's easier to take huge risks when you're single young and have a well off family you can use as a safety net When you're married with a kid your priorities should shift to security in my opinion So sure work towards your goals save and accomplish them but don't think it's as easy as he makes it out to be At the end of the day he's selling something and he tells you himself that he's a child of salespeople and one of his first job was as a salesperson The best salespeople find a need and learn to sell to that need which is what he does I leave it up to other folks to determine how altruistic they think his motives areStill I recommend the read it's goes some decent core ideas a good motivating read and I went and joined the forums over at his site I won't be buying into Nerd Fitness Academy the pay side of the site though
