The Struggle is What Makes You Shine and Thrive

Right now I’m in a fun period of life. It is the phase where I have little responsibility to anything other than myself.

Most of my friends are getting out of college and into jobs. Some are even getting married and settling down in Charleston.

I feel like I’m on the outside looking in. It is weird seeing them “grow up” right before my eyes. The things that I used to associate with my parents are now becoming more of a daily reality for my friends.

Lately I spend most of my time away from other people’s realities. Instead of going out with couples I prefer to travel and build businesses with my online friends.

While I still care about my friends it is becoming harder to relate to them. They want to talk about the latest show on Netflix while I want to talk about what I’m working on.

Don’t think I feel lonely because I’ve never been happier. I’m at the point where life is under my control.

Yes, there are circumstances that I can’t control. But luckily I’ve been blessed with good health and so 9 out of 10 of my “issues” are fixed with money.

As I write this article I am laying by a pool. Birds are chirping and the breeze is ice cold. I feel alive and I’m fucking proud at what I’ve done so far in my life.

I’m in the struggle aka the building phase and I can’t be more excited. While most are trying to figure out what jobs to take so that they can pay off college, I’m about to launch a company with my friend.

While other guys are losing their selves to women they settled for, I’m free to choose from any woman I want.

My life is in my hands and nobody else’s. Don’t get me wrong though. I have to hustle everyday and my life revolves around the next step.

But I love it this way. When I had plenty of money coming in, I was complacent. Now that I have to hustle everyday I don’t have a choice but to act.

This is just a part of my story and it is all for you. I want you to see all that I can do from just making a decision and then taking action.

I don’t have any superpowers that make me better than you. All that I have is a will to win and a heart full of fire.

From meeting John Doe to living with Victor Pride, it all happened because I willed it to. Reality bends to my will because I do not break.

If you are struggling right now I want you to hold your head up high. Put your shoulders back and start moving forward.

This coming week I will be releasing a service with my partner that will change your life. All you have to do is use take advantage of it.

Always the best,

Dylan Madden
