      Hey GoOnCal1,

      Welcome to the 'Get Rich or Die Tryin' bankroll challenge. we will be looking forward to your first update which you should post by Monday of each week in Get Rich or Die Tryin' - The Bankroll Challenge - Reporting thread.

      You have some nice goals there. You should also consider joining our Goal-Getter: Prove yourself and get rewarded! promotion. :s_thumbsup:

      This is also looking like it will turn into a Blog or Success & Challenge thread so I could move this to either of those boards. Just let us know which one. :f_thumbsup:

      Regards

      Laz

      As an addict i can tell you that what your describing isnt actually an addiction like alcoholism or that meth addiction yanks seem so fond of. See what you've done is find a passion that you're not very good at, which is alot more common than you would think. what you need to do is study theory and just read and train enough so that your natural instincts change and you start making right decisions. Theres a study by sum guy that suggest(claims )that mastering any skill this takes 10,000 hours of solid practice, actual practice not messing about like ur doin now, or atleast untill now that uve set urself some proper goals. most people power thru their 40 hour weeks, very few can actually find something they can do for that much time while enjoying it so if you can grind for that long time then go for it man! only reason you wudnt succeed is you being too much of a coward to follow your dreams

      Cheers,
      Am I in or out ?
      Can my start date be 26th Jan? Australia Day :-)
      Can my roll be 'notional' given I have many accounts and a holding account?
      Regards Michael

      He GoOnCal1,

      you'd be in if you follow the steps that I described above :-)
      I don't think it will be a lot of hassle to add your Bankrolls together once, given that the purpose of the promo is also to give you the chance to easier progress with your own goals. Of course details are up to you, so if you want to round your individual BR on the rooms, please do so.

      In the end we want to:
      - show: he, I have my goal, I will follow up with it and show you my grind
      - give you a little extra push by asking you for an update every week
      - give you the chance for a status upgrade
      - by giving your blog visibility in our weekly update, so you can also get one or another comment more in your blog :-)

      Given the fact that we don't run this as a competition and allow everyone to go at his own pace, please do bend the rules to your liking. However, we somehow need a rough starting point & a concrete goal, so it all makes a bit more sense with our updates & overviews.
      Please -under the above aspects- have an opt in here: Get Rich or Die Tryin' - The Bankroll Challenge - Opt-in now!

      Lols Lazza,
      If you question your own sanity, obviously you are asking the wrong person. (category 2 logic error)
      Thanks for your friendly assistance and comments since I joined PS.
      :-)
