Hey everyone...

I actually have no idea how I originally found this forum (been lurkin' for months), but it was probably via searching about The Black Philip Show or Iceberg Slim's book - two things which really resonated with me even though I didn't even slightly understand the philosophy/mindset behind them. I was looking but not seeing.

For a while, I engaged in the mental masturbation of reading these forums (and other material) without really doing the work - which is a gigantic waste of time after you get the fundamentals. I had already been doing things like building my own business, international travel/living, working out, etc. to improve myself on one level. But that was it.

Much more recently, though, I finally pulled my head out of my own ass and started to close the laptop and get to the real work that's explained on these boards. That means:
A) Working on my observation skills (around town) and...
B) Diving into problems that I didn't even know I had (self-observation followed by "push-ups")

I'm inally taking real steps down the prescribed path and seeing some interesting things... both inside and out (not that there's a difference, aka. the mirror :geek:) and figured it was time to introduce myself.

Looking forward to sharing some experiences and bouncing ideas with you guys soon :evil:. This place is a real gem.

Thanks to everyone who made this forum the resource that it is. Hopefully more people start to tune in...

- Mr. Black

Welcome man. And don't worry about "wasting time" with mental masturbation, it all seems like steps back until you see they weren't.

Welcome

On some level you had to give that grey matter a tugjob till you realised it was doing no good.
