I don't think this is what "being successful" really means. We're being lied to, kings.

You mean consuming more products doesn't make you a better, happier, more fulfilled person?

He's talking about having lots of money.

tbf, being totally self sufficient (thus having little need for money) is also something that takes many hours a day and lots of sacrifice, in modern terms.

I’m willing to put in the effort to become self sufficient as much as I can and if I have to let go of modern conveniences and comforts to get there, I feel those are sacrifices worth making.

"Hustling" is a fancy way to say that you're becoming a debt slave.

Or a workaholic because you think keeping up the jones's is the key to happiness and the american dream.

Thats right! Slave your life, the life of your wife, and the lives of your children away for the GDP! Dont work on your community or go to church or call your parents! What about the #grindset? Cmon now, that yearly $30B Israeli stimulus package isn't going to make itself!

It doesn't sound like he's endorsing the lifestyle, just a commentary on modern entrepreneurship. Idk maybe I'm wrong

This dude is pretty down to Earth. I think he's warning people.

That's what it felt like when I was reading it.

I agree with him because he is referring to starting a business.

Giving up a decade of your life could be what it takes to have complete freedom afterwards. If you do it in your twenties and/or early thirties, it is worth it IMO.

If it works out maybe, most start up businesses fail. Every one that succedes that I know of produced a deranged, stingey sociopath owner with a failed marriage and disaster family life that thinks they can do no wrong and the temporary success of the business indicates eternal divine blessings or something.

Physical health goes out the window too. Then spoiled dysfunctional kids take over business and run it into the ground within 5yrs...but at least you got that boat and 4 car garage when you were 60yrs old.

That is a brilliant clip. Only thing that isn't quite right is the dipshit sons are seldom as honest or intelligent.

Exactly. Or the 5k acoustic guitar and F350 with leather and bullshit. Etc. You can't fill the hole with things.

Thats my brother in law to a T. Makes like 250k a year but has like million in unpaid liabilities, stressed all the time, kids are all weird and lack attention because all he does is work, my sister is mentally checked out. It's sad because this is what is touted as "successful" in the US now.

Does she at least stay at home with the kids? Or does she wage slave too?

1
Joesf23 1 point ago +1 / -0

Wage slave nurse manager until major burnout occured last year with covid fuckery, now career change to wage slave 2.0...but at least she hustles, right?

Sad. I view husbands who put child bearing wives to work outside the home with condescension and confusion.

Homopratensis2 1 point ago +1 / -0

The particular individual I have in mind had an infertile wife so they adopted other race children more of less to virtue signal and treated everyone else's natural children as livestock. They injured both my BIL and friend making them work in dangerous conditions and paid my wife out with pennies for hourly baby sitting work. Unbelievable.

Yes, if that business will succeed. Would you gamble the 10 best years of your life?

I personally plan to invest in rental properties, pretty safe as far as i know.

Rich people rationalizing their success.

Most men I’ve worked with have been hard working. Most entrepreneurs will devote all their time to their business.

Can’t stand these fucking morons and their keys to success bullshit. You don’t know shit faggot, most of your money came from networking, fuck out of here.

Giving a hundred and ten percent isn't enough anymore.

It takes a gorillion and ten percent to make it these days.

Does this fit here? This is about entrepreneurship. And it's true; if you want to reach what's investable to him, you need to be ready to do more than just work for the business.

Isn't he talking about becoming rich? Despite what internet people say, there is a lot to work you have to do to become rich. There are lots of sacrifices. Don't believe me? Try it.

2
Homopratensis2 2 points ago +2 / -0

Becoming rich is mostly fortune.

Becoming reasonably wealthy is a matter of simply saving as much as you can, not being stupid, and having descent longevity.

God I wish we had a struggle worthy of this. Corporate success ain’t it tho.
