Their parents get sick and they can’t help because of their low income. Of course, they have some motivation to make money at this point, but they think it’s too late when the catastrophic event happens. They didn’t prepare.
Successful people use these events to change who they are.
Your Google searches change to things like “how to make an extra $1,000/month.” You start having conversations about money with your friends. All of these tiny choices begin to compound into results.
The difference between video games and real life is fake risk and real risk. Real pain. Real fear. Real sacrifice. The things that allow pleasure, love, and results to exist.
You didn’t make the choices that led to a purposeful career. You didn’t make the choices that led to fulfilling relationships. You didn’t make the choices that led to a healthy and aesthetic body.
You don’t have to make perfect choices. It’s actually better if you make mistakes.
The Standards Of Who You Want To Become Most people take the bare minimum approach to life. Quick money, quick sex, quick pleasure, no commitment, no depth, no failure.
You can tend a digital garden or be thrust into a digital swamp
Unfollow anyone who does not serve the conditioning of better standards in your life. Even if it doesn’t seem like it, and no matter how much you justify it, the people you follow subtly influence your actions. Slowly, then all at once you become someone you may hate. Take your time to follow valuable accounts. Valuable accounts challenge your worldview, make you think outside the box, and educate you on the skills necessary to reach a higher quality of life.
Follow one account. Let the algorithm do its work. Follow accounts that reply to the first account’s posts. With time, you will create an environment that is conducive to your growth.
The last reason your life sucks is because you don’t contribute to humanity. You don’t contribute to humanity because you don’t have something so valuable that you can’t help but share it. You don’t have something valuable to offer because you are ignoring the problems in your life that beg a solution to be created. You are ignoring the problems in your life because you don’t have clarity on how to achieve the goal that will solve them. You don’t have clarity on how to achieve a goal because you have nothing to build. Nothing to frame and guide your learning. A value creator is someone who has intention behind their inputs and outputs.
