The secret to success, the real secret, is that there is no secret. No book, no pill and no seminar is going to make you successful. No amount of wishful thinking or positive intent will get you what you want. Everything you want is a scarce resource that you have to compete for until the day that you die.
Resources are limited and wants are unlimited. The nature of the system means you’re not supposed to get what you want.
You’re supposed to have a sh*tty job, a sh*tty sex life and a sh*tty body. You’re supposed to be unhappy about it. You’re supposed to live for the weekend. You’re supposed to accept it. You’re supposed to be too stupefied by poverty, work and distractions to be able to change.
For one person to win, many people have to lose. For every Brad Pitt there are a million broken dreams. Winning is unnatural. You’re not supposed to win. Losing is natural. You’re supposed to lose.
You’re supposed to live a life of quiet desperation. Predators understand this. They build their success off the backs of losers. Predators sell losers fantasy solutions, fantasy dreams, fantasy secrets.
In reality they don’t give a f*ck about you, only your money. No one cares if you succeed. Most people are too busy getting beat down by their own problems to even think about you. Maybe only a handful of people care about you and that’s if you’re lucky.
Everything you want you have to do yourself. Don’t expect a mentor. Don’t expect people to help you. Don’t expect people to understand. Instead expect people to disappoint you. Expect business partners to betray you. Expect people to sell you bullsh*t dreams.
That’s the bad news
The good news is that just by taking action you’re ahead of most guys. Most guys don’t even try. Most guys are lazy, fearful and undisciplined. Just by trying you’ve beaten most of your competition.
The good news is that by moving forward when things get hard you’ve beaten the rest. Most guys that try quit when things get hard. Whenever things get hard for me I remind myself that this is where other guys quit. That gives me the fuel to keep going.
To get what you want you have to take action. You need to work harder than the other guy. You need to work smarter. You need to sacrifice more. You need to endure more. There’s no other way. There’s no secret.
To get what you want you have to be willing to do what other men won’t. You have to work when your friends are going out. You have to save money when other people are spending. You have to focus when other people are relaxing. You have to keep going when others are quitting. That’s what separates the winners from the losers.
I worked like a dog while my friends were partying, now I have a business that pays for my lifestyle while I sleep. I saved my money while other people were spending it, now I have a bankroll of cash. I learned game and now I have more women then I can handle. My life was hard, now I live in paradise and my life is easy and bright.
I succeeded for no other reason then because I willed it. I kept going when I was scared, tired, uncertain and depressed. If you’re scared, tired, uncertain and depressed, then I’m talking to you through these words. It can and will get better, I promise you. You just have to keep going.
I’m living my dream because I took action, because I worked hard, because I worked smart and above all because I always believed in myself.
