Normally, on most websites this would be the ‘About us’ page, where I give you a long bio about me, my experiences, and success.
So that I am not a mystery man, I will give you a brief introduction to myself, however I want this site to be about you. I want you to discover and enjoy life just as much as I am, so I plan to share with you how I woke up to the greatest life ever lived!
Realizing you are going to die, is the best motivator to live.
My name is Daniel Ameduri, I was born and raised in Southern California, and like almost everyone reading this I was raised to be a good American. I was raised in a middle class household, my father worked 12 hour days, I went to public school, played sports, and upon graduating from high school, enrolled in college. I even married my high school sweet heart, probably the best decision I have ever made in my life.
As a young adult, I inherently knew something was wrong with the way people lived, I didn’t like it that people worked so much, it just didn’t make sense. I hated the idea of going to school for 4 to 8 years before starting my adult life, and the idea of saving for 40 years prior to living my golden years, was just unacceptable. At 15 years old I remember my teacher selling us on going to college, she showed a chart that put college grads earning an average of $35,000 per year and high school graduates earning $25,000 per year. I’ll never forget that day and I tell this story often, because that was the day I was certain, I had no intentions of ever getting a degree, I realized that I would be screwed either way. Luckily, I was given a book called Rich Dad Poor Dad written by Roberty Kiyosaki, this book was everything I had felt, put into words.
It was this book and a wealthy mentor who helped shape my beliefs today. Now in between graduating high school and today, I dropped out of college, I think I might have went to one class for one day, got a job, bought my first house at 18, and of course, made some huge mistakes that cost me nearly everything!
Getting closer to my 30’s, I was more driven than ever to build a business and get out of the work force forever. Most people are scared to lose their jobs, I am scared to have ever have one!
Unfortunately my 20’s was way too focused on getting rich, in hindsight, I wish I would have focused on the quality of my life. Those were of course probably my best physical years, years that I squandered to overtime and TV.
By time I turned 30, I was not only happily married, but I had two kids, and financially, was a self-made millionaire.
28ThousandDays.com is where my passion is, and that is living. My goal it to help you live a better life.
Today I want you to realize that you are a human being on planet earth with a limited amount of time. If you are an American, this number comes out to about 78 years, or as I look at it, 28,000 days to live!
You have the choice, right now, to live your own life. But I would bet that you are not living your own life, most people live the life that is expected of them. I know, I fell into that trap, but now that I have escaped it, I want to help as many people as possible get out of what I call the matrix, just like I did.
Children should be taught to be entrepreneurs, not employees
The expectations of your parents, spouse, government, society, and the history of those around you have you living a life that may not even be your own. It’s funny, a lot of us probably look at Muslim women dressed in a Berka and ask why is she putting up with this B.S., take that thing off and get some fresh air and join the 21st century. Yet, we ourselves are doing the exact same thing, when we go to college to get a degree we don’t need, buy a house we can’t afford, apply for an auto loan, take a 7 day vacation out of an entire year, or drink a beer while watching a sports game. These are mindless decisions we make because others in the past made them and now we subconsciously feel expected to do the same without question.
For example, if I offered you a business off the coast of Costa Rica, turn key, you would make 10,000 a month and watch sunsets for the rest of your life, would you do it? Of course this isn’t for everyone, some may not like the ocean, others may desire to do something else, but I would bet that almost no one would do it anyway. Why? Because we were all conditioned to live in the country we were born in, find a job that people view as secure, and put in hard working hours between the ages of 18-65.
I want you to live the retired life now! And that is going to take a change of your mindset and appreciation for everything around you.
You were not made to slave away burning up precious hours not living the life you want.
You will have to make a choice, do you want to live your own life, or the life that is expected of you?
If thats what you want to do, then this site can do nothing for you, maybe help you save some money and earn some extra income with a few business and investment ideas, but as far as living, I am sorry, this site just isn’t for you.
This is for individuals who want to start living each day to the fullest, to not allow your life to be just another plain old vanilla life that didn’t matter and had no significance or legacy.
It is never too late to create your own path.
