Never said pick up MADE me.  I said it led to me making one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make.  The time is now..

Successful people are successful because they take action and execute.

Whether it's school, business, health, singing, these people are actively taking action and doing things to improve and progress. They make goals and take what action to achieve those goals, no matter the obstacles and however long it takes.

Some people are just quitters and complainers.  They go on about how they don't like this of they don't like that, and talk up a storm about how they're going to do this and they feel they can do that.  BUT, these people don't follow through, they half ass things and complain and quit when the going gets tough and when they don't get the results that they think they want.

In fact, these people are half assed about quitting, thinking that oh well, if this doesn't work out, then I can go back doing that and so on.

Listen to MJ about action takers and action fakers.  Learn and apply.

 Not becuase I want to do pick up forever and be a total loser working a minimum wage job.. but honestly.. just seeing the process in action makes me wonder.. if it's like this for this.. couldn't I apply the same formula to any aspect in my life?

I feel like I can do something big on my own.  I feel like I can build myself up and work through the hard times and end up farther in life in 3 years than I would if I stayed in college.  I feel like I am able to take massive action for my financial situation and also at the same time enjoy a life of doing what I want to do.  

Maybe I'm making a huge mistake but I have the option to return in a year.  

Time to do something, friends :)
 always have a backup plan. and college isn't really that bad man. i don't understand why everybody is bashing on college. college teaches you so many skills. time management, responsibility,  and it teaches you learn HOW TO LEARN. sure you won't remember all the shit from college but overall i think it's a great experience. you get to meet great people and also people who are engaged in learning as much as you. you don't have to enter the rat race like everybody else after college but you can definitely use the skills you developed from college to help you with other parts of your life and business. a college degree doesn't represent who you are or if you're going to be successful but it does show  that you are able to go through 4 years of hard work and be able to accomplish it. But this is just my opinion. It's your life. do whatever you want but make sure to be honest to yourself 100% about the decision you are making

 regardeless of what you do, college or no college, if you put in time, hard work and remain dedicated you will succeed!
Make sure you have good routines, its easy to slip into lazyness. A good friend of mine dopped out for the same reasons and nnow he sits smoking pot all day and hasnt done anything productive in months, so pretty much what I'm saying is write down what you want to accomplish and read it over every day so you can keep your eyes on the prize, its easy to get distracted qnd lazy when you dont have commitments. :p
Wishing you the best of luck
