Todays century is competitive.

I'm always saying to people who want to make it in life and be successful they have to compete with 7.95 billion people in this planet.

You have to be exceptional at what you do. There is no other way.

It does not matter if you go to American Idol and you win it. It really does not. That's only the 90% accomplishment. To reach that final 10% it takes hard work, commitment, blood, sweat, tears and failures.

People often say that you don't need money to be happy. Usually people who say this they never had money in their life's. They are poor, and they will stay poor.

Money is not everything. But is the only thing that someone counts daily to survive.

The divorce rate in the US has been the highest since the last decade. The reason of-course is financial.

People wake up in the morning and they are poor and miserable yet they don't need money to be happy. Maybe not. But you need them to survive in this world and to keep a balance of your problems and your desires.

If you have a million dollar dreams you can't achieve them with minimum wage habits.

To this day when I was poor until now I have realized that money does not bring happiness but I'm pretty sure they can change your ****1ing life.

This post is not about money. It's about changing your mindset and looking at money as a resource that you need to survive. This is life and it is what it is. You either adapt or you die poor and miserable.

To finalize, a good way to look at money is the following: a scarce in demand resource.

Consider the following and i'm out:

1.
The 30% Rule: Keep 30% of your money in savings/investments, 30% of it in fun, and 30% of it in necessities.

2. The 5% Rule: If you're unable to be the 95th percentile and above in anything you do, then don't do it (as your focus in life). Chances are- because the world is so competitive- that you're not gonna make it.

3. Keep a budget of all your income and expenses.

4. The "Don't Understand/ Won't Have" Corollary: You won't obtain anything you don't understand, whether it be money, women, or anything else you want in life.

5. Money= Having scarce and In-demand resources. It's useless if you have something scarce but nobody wants it. It's also useless if you have something in-demand but too many people have it.

6. There are 2 kinds of people in this world: Producers and Performers. Most Producers start out as Performers. A Producer is someone who comes up with the idea, and the Performer is the one who carries out that idea.

7. Nobody does anything alone. Bill Gates himself said "I never did anything alone". Even The Lone Ranger had a partner. Success takes people. The wealthiest people in the world have the greatest number of team members.

8. You are an investor first before you are anything else. Throughout history, investors have ruled over everything.

9. Pursue the industry that you are curious and interested in. Pick an industry and stick to it for at least ten or more years. Look through the government industry list and choose an industry. You must be curious enough about the industry you choose to be patient in as you push the ball up the hill.

10. You will make the average of your five closest friends.

100.

But there are two different types of success. As this remains a seduction forum ( @Pierce Manhammer happy now :)) needles to say there is:
-success in life
- being successful with women

These are (no longer)mutually exclusively tied together. I made a screenshot from the typical YouTube comment you'll see nowadays as soon as something redpill-ish is mentioned:

A man MUST develop his mouthpiece and ability to " close the gap" in order to be successful with women. And stay motivated to keep meeting and fecking women, finding ways to DON'T let bad passed experiences get to him. Otherwise he'll end up like dude in my screenhot( which I respect as well dont get me wrong).

Generally speaking I love the subject of this thread and I am curious about how you feel about my addition.

I completely agree with your point of view.

There is different segments of success wealth and women.

All though they do work together as wealth always attracts women and gold diggers.

The dude in the screenshot seems like a miserable type of guy who gave up. Not my cup of tea. I respect though the part where he says "going home to my quiet little hole every evening"

You have to really respect and love ur-self to enjoy your own space without the need of women.

There are (at least) 3 kinds of people* in this world: Producers; Performers; and Consumers. Consumers are the majority, there are precious few Performers and even fewer Producers.

* more kinds of people not belonging to the three groups above: Politicians; Criminals: Con artists; and Parasites; to name but a few.

Dude when WASN'T it competitive?

It's ALWAYS been competitive. People want to harken back to the days when everything was perfect and there was no competition for anything...

that never existed, not even in prehistoric times...even then there was always competition for resources that were limited like food, shelter and water...and women.

Humans overall have never had a higher quality of life than they do today in terms of all of the comforts and techology they have access to AND the amount of ways they can segway into new careers starting from nothing. Your ability to make income from random sources is limitless almost. I mean people travel to places and write about and their blogs make enough money thru advertising to live off of.so they don't even work.

There are endless opportunities out there. The people who are crying and complaining will never see them. The ones who actively are looking to take advantage of them will.
