    Thanks everyone for the comments as it does mean a lot to write a long post and see that someone read it and got some enjoyment of value from from them. As far as the compliments go, thanks but in all honesty there is nothing all that special about what I shared. There have been thousands who came out of much worst circumstances then I have, and there are thousands who know how to do anything I know how to do much better than I know how to do them.

    Each of us has their own challenges they face. Let me share a story I heard a long time ago.

    The spider monkey is one of, if not the, fastest moving creatures that is hunted for. With this animal being so difficult to hunt they became a delicacy in some countries. This is less so now, because after years hunters discovered an easy method to capture a spider monkey.

    What they do is leave a peanut inside of a locked cage. The monkey comes up reaches his hand through to grab the peanut, grasps the peanut with a closed fist which makes his hand to big to get out of the cage. He struggles and struggles to figure out how to get his hand out of the cage, but he's not willing to drop the peanut. Meanwhile the hunter walks up casualty stairs down the monkey who is now fighting vigorously needing to run to save his life. Drop the peanut and he can escape, the monkey is not willing to let go of the peanut and the hunter delivers the fatal shot and the monkey is dead.

    All this over a peanut. If he let go of the damn peanut he escaped and could go live a happy spider monkey life . However, he was not willing to let go.

    Giving the monkey the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he doesn't know that if he lets go of the peanut he is no longer trapped.

    As the most intelligent species on the planet though, you'd not find a human in the same situation. We'd drop the peanut and run, right?

    Now I don't want to minimize anyone's challenges and obstacles, we all have unique sets of circumstances to overcome but seriously in the grand scheme of things our challenges, adversities, obstacles are all peanut sized when compared to the rewards that come from being able to go out and have what you want most. (making a mountain out of a mole hill saying works in here somewhere)

    In most cases, its not the lack of knowledge, skill or the how to plan that stops most people from having success. Its that want for the meaningless stupid peanut inside of that cage that we refuse to let go of, that causes us most of our problems.

    Think about it tonight when you reflect, what peanut sized beliefs or peanut sized challenges are holding you back from what you really want out of life?

    We all know how to do the things we need to do in order to get the things we want. We might not know that we know how yet, but we all do know. The actual doing is the most difficult part. Some people develop the belief system that they're going to be successful no matter what challenges occur because someone who is already successful at the task at hand is there taking an interest and guiding them. However, its not the person that guided them at is responsible for their success its their own confidence and motivation to work towards their deepest desires with urgency and a I will not fail attitude that that is the sole fuel for their own personal accomplishments.

Again, thanks for sharing and i have to say this is maybe the best post ever written on PAW/PAP and now PAL After these posts i would guess there is not many people in here who would turn down a business offer from you.
    Maybe a small bit of an underdog story, but its just life I'm sure not sad about it any.

    Regarding the business offers - thanks but understand this is not my intention. Those that know me will know I help people all the time without asking for anything in return. Investing in others success is like a hobby passion of mine because I think the biggest challenge our society faces is the need to go out and be employed. Parents should be free to raise their children, people should live and enjoy life. Not only do I believe that being a slave to our current systems ruins and wastes more lives than drugs, alcohol, gambling addictions combined I also believe this enslavement is a deeply intertwined with many of the problems are society faces. Any chance at revolution most likely comes in breaking the bonds of enslavement of our current so called economic system.

    I'm sure if this forum was bigger a realist would come and mock this statement, but so what. So maybe its not going to make the entire world better, but one more more single mom able to provide her children with guidance for the future or one more hard working husband and father being able to see more of his kids games, is sure not going to hurt any and as far as they're concerned things will be better.

    Pokerprop, although we're just getting started with this forum, this thread may go down as one of the best ever for years to come. Great story man, thanks for sharing.

    Absolutely amazing story! For me, at least, it certainly has put some things into perspective.

    Cheers PokerProp - great post, and one that I'll be coming back to for a while to come!

    Your original post was great too ... I've been affiliating for just over a year now and there's a load of stuff which I've learned. Going into my second year I realise I need to streamline what I'm doing and posts like that really help. It's been really useful to hear how you have such a high turn around on your sites.

    Anyway, great post.

    Thanks alot.

    Thanks for a great post Prop, one of the best in a while.

    Also excellent question from MPC there, can relate 101% to where you are coming from... also growing incrementally - but wondering when my 'coiled-spring of content' is going to explode!

    Cheers, Mark
