This is what I was trying to say 48hrs ago on Twitter
Far too many people are guilty of fraud.
You say you want to make more money?
Change your situation for good?
But instead of doing the work relentlessly and consistently
Working hard and smart,
You're fucking around and lazying about
Jumping from one thing to another
If that's you...
You're a joker.
And your dreams will remain what they are
A lot of people will tell you...
Sorry I'm not cut out for this thing you do.
I don't want to become a "great" this or that or anything.
I don't want to be rich
I just want to live a small, quiet, comfortable life.
But guess who they rely on when they need financial help?
The same "rich" they don't want to be like.
The joke writes itself.If...
Instead of operating by the princple of self reliance so you never have to rely on anyone or run to anyone...
You live your life hoping that.... whenever you need to pay the bills
Or when you have need for money
There's this one person you'll call and they'll definitely help you
Then... once again...
I must tell you that you're a joker.
Look, I don't know about you
But I hate asking anybody for money
I hate it with passion.
If I ever have to ask anyone for financial help,
It's one of 2 things:
Either I'm incapacitated,
Or I've exhausted all my income streams.
The chances of me ever asking anyone for money is:
I'm a firm believer in self reliance
Especially when it comes to money.
That's why I work really hard and smart every freaking day to have as much of my own money as possible
No matter how much I'm making
I never get too comfortable.
Better to have it in excess,
Than to not have enough when the need arises
The stomach-turning truth is:
Most people are not ready to be rich
It takes serious effort, focus, discipline and ambition
All of which they don't want to be bothered with
They simply want easy and quick money
The logic of fools
Again, the joke writes itself.
And contrary to what you think..
The only real secret to success I know is:
If you can focus on one thing for 12-months
And you learn the right way
And do the work consistently,
And you ask questions in between...
And you seek help or guidance when you're stuck
And you have unwavering belief in yourself
Not anyone else,
There's no way in hell you won't make staggering progress in life.
Anyway it's your life...
Do with it whatever you damn well please.
P.S: Another foolish excuse people give for not working hard is:
"I wasn't born into a rich family, I don't have rich parents or a rich relative willing to help, Just like Bezos and Bill gates and Elon Musk...so I may never really become rich no matter how hard I work"
An argument that holds no water.
You're either working hard or you're not.
Oprah Winfery was born into poverty.
Howard Schultz was born into poverty
If you don't want to work hard....
And you don't believe you can be rich
Or that you deserve staggering financial success
You'll always have a keynote speech to justify your laziness.
Having money is important.
And you're better of working hard and smart every day,
To have as much of your own money as possible
Than relying on anyone else.
