Mate this is really poor advice, I am guessing that you are 32, multimillionaire now lowering your intelligence to fit in with the common to find a 'mate' and have a couple of friends. If not then you arent really as smart as you claim to be and your own game plan has failed you. If I was as smarts as you claim to be and so money hungry as you obviously are, I would want to be retired by 32 and trying to work out how to appeal to the opposite sex. Because I can tell you now with your attitude towards women no one would touch you, even the gold diggers would pass up the chance at easy money.
Friends... I have ones which will help me. Hell I will drop anything for friends. You have to give to get.
is all good. i understand what you are trying to tell me. i have a problem that i do not know how to “sugar coat” my advice. i just speak bluntly. but most people do not understand blunt, they like it sugar coated. though blunt and sugar coated are the same thing. so i’ll admit that, i lack that big time.
now, what i wrote it’s not really that serious. i’m just speaking bluntly but i can guarantee that if i was to sugar coat it, you would not act the same.
let me see if i can try to explain it... this is what you put in bold for emphasis.
NOTE TO SELF: I REALLY NEED TO LEARN HOW TO SUGAR COAT.
forget them, think about yourself only.
lower your intelligence down
money makes the world go round plain and simple.
once you start making money the rest become slaves... it is true.
when have you noticed a friend that wants to help you? no where.
friends are nothing special.
if you need someone to talk to, manipulate. it's the truth. but you will need a second half.
lets take the first one “forget them, think about yourself only.” ok, tell me right now, who are you thinking about helping at this very moment. knowing that there are people out there needing help? or who have you thought about helping other than yourself in the past month? plus have you actually helped anyone. not with, “it will be ok” but with words and actions. have you helped your friend?
lets take the other bold phrase in consideration “lower your intelligence down”. have you tried to be smarter than everyone else. or should i say, do you show your smartness in public, literally? if you come across a co-worker who cannot understand something but you can, are you going to point that out or are you going to take note in you mind and say “wow, this guy is an idiot” BUT lower your intelligence to be polite?
the next bold sentence “money makes the world go round plain and simple.” like i said, a friend is not for your best interest, sure friends have good time (they have their purpose, but one should not just focus on that) but the friend who ends up at top is the one who takes control. tell your friend, “i need to move to another state to go to one of the top universities, i got accepted.” the friend is only going to be thinking, “man, he is moving away. im going to be all alone." so what do you do? stay to please the friend, or go to make top dollar and enjoy your future life? cus money does make the world go round whether you want to believe it or not. i have read books about money to not know this.
you think thugs in the streets hustling are bad... just read about how countries need to borrow money from banks and pay back interests, if they can’t, they get “PUNISHED”. (this is something that goes deep to the truth. but most just ignore it cus it does not matter to the average joe to be honest, though it happens).
buy a brand new shiny car. make your payments on time so you won’t get charged interests, see how it ends up for you. the dealer has to make a profit somehow.
make ONE late payment in anything, see how your bill goes up. it just takes one cus that's how they can charge you more legally (bend the rules). blah blah blah, it’s all about money.
lets take a look at the other bold part “once you start making money the rest become slaves... it is true.” actually they make themselves slaves. but slaves is not sugar coated so i could mean the same thing by saying, they become “kiss as*.”.... “i need new shoes but i don’t have any money”. “man, i don’t know how i’m going to do it but i don’t have next month rent.” that’s how it starts.
etc. etc.. with the rest.
i’m not a millionaire (i wish) but i know that it should not be that hard. that is it i didn't have SA. plus, i just found out i had SA last year and i’ve been manipulated by my dad till 4 months ago. i may be late but i don’t think it’s too late. a lot of people have made millions in their later years.
I am really sorry that you had a tough childhood and life. But blame the bullies, dont sit here and blame the world. Dont tell this guy that he should turn his back on the world and treat everyone else like dirt. That will get him nowhere.
not having pride is not going to take you places either. one of arrogance synonym is “pride”. you can’t have pride if you want to succeed in life. so it is ok to be arrogant. but i think the op is talking about having pride and not arrogance (unless how he feels is a lie, cannot back it up). just be proud that you feel smarter than the rest. why? cus they all do it, they just do it unconsciously. plus, they don’t speak about it, they just do it. i see it.
I am a guy, I am young, I am not as smart as you and have less money then you. But I would not trade places with you. I am glad you think your life and yourself is so much greater then everyone else. You can keep it.
And the they will be working for you one day comment. If I walked in and had a boss like you I would quit on the spot, no amount of money is worth putting up with someone with your values and attitude. I doubt many people would stand for it.
you can feel smarter than me, it won’t bother me. you can feel that you have more money than me, it’s the same. it all boils down how you feel about yourself.
should i feel like i’m lower than everyone else? just proving a point.
the thing is that people don’t actually talk about what they do to get this and that. or how they feel about people/society, they just DO IT unconsciously (like i mentioned before). what i try to do is interpret their actions and not what they actually say and i say it bluntly. like i said earlier before, my fault is that i say it bluntly.
thanx for the input though.
