Nope, not even close. That's like thinking that a Yugo is on a level to compete with a Ferrari. Oh sure, the marketing weasels want you to think that and fork over almost 500 dollars, but that's all it is, is marketing.

Deathwolf,

never say never. The mere fact you are thinking this limits your potential to achieve.

I want to see you join the club.

Think it... do it.

FastSRT8 is totally right. You can't limit yourself like that.
My favorite quote will always be

Law of Attraction is real guys. Make use of it.
For example I now have a PRG. But I'm confident and I truly believe that there's a Centurion waiting for me out there. I'm just working my way up there. I'll get there. You gotta believe!

Just getting these two will be amazing considering the improvement I will have to do for my credit. For the centurion it will be hard because I retire this year from the military and if they look at income it will be hard for them to say yes.

Obviously nobody was talking about getting a Centurion today. Neither tomorrow.
But you've got to believe that you can actually get it, eventually.

Hey, if some of you even know what I am planning/believing I can accomplish... you will not only laugh but you will say I need to be admitted.

BUT, these are my goals... notice how I didn't say dreams? GOALS. Whether or not I make them is only for me to know. So long as you are still alive, the game continues. It's not gave over til its really over.

All I can say so far is my track record is not bad. Most of my goals that I truly desire and want I have met. :)

Same here. I don't have any dream. Only goals.

Seems like you and I are from the 'old' school club.
