Many on this forum are in dire need of reading all 5 of his books.
Especially Fooled By Randomness, Black Swan and Antifragile.
Throw in 101 Zen Stories and Greatness Cannot Be Planned by Kenneth O Stanley and your mind may be wiped clean of all you think you know.
I get what you're saying.
I dont disagree with you.
The past me would have completely agreed with you because that is what I WANTED or NEEDED to believe.
To have hope.
Sometimes "giving up" hope is the most hopeful thing you can do.
I don't care about the existential reality of life...
Or the luck of being born at all.
Whether you think it's good or bad luck...lol
Unbelievable long shot.
Trillions of planets and stars in the universe and we could be alone.
A bacteria to human conciousness.
All by accident.
Talk about luck.

Yeah it's a bad habit me posting my thoughts in print on here because it really is a waste of time for me and the majority of people who read it.
Most of the time I resist the urge.
I dont know or care what people want on this forum..
Just making generalizations about human nature.
Life isnt poker.
You cant know probabilities in life.
Too many variables that you dont know what you dont know.
I thought of the odds of winning this poker hand...good EV so I bet...
What I didn't figure was someone shooting me at the table as a way to lose...oops
That's the difference...
You're a good salesman Kyle.
You take what I said and use it as a segue to your much loved leadership in business principle.
No sarcasm intended since we cant read tone.
Letting go or giving up is not the same as defeat or being defeatist.
Who says I haven't gotten the best outcome I could...
It's not that they had any circumstances in common or even genetics in common necessarily.
I can't point to any genes because I don't know enough about genetics to identify millions of clusters of genes.
No one does yet.
Take John D Rockefeller for example.
If you ran a simulation with the...
I'm definitely no authority on anything.
I'm making some much needed counter arguments that dont get addressed in this forum.
I don't assert any of it is accurate.
My own experiences, some things I've seen and read have me suspecting:
I've been wrong about many things and so has most...
I said they have luck in common not that "it's all luck".
Hard work is a given.
But predicts nothing.
Once again we dont hear from the many people who "worked hard, thought big and took action" and 5 years later still " in moms basement".
And not one gene but many that contribute to a...
Think big is a bad motivational cliche at this point.
It's a tell 99% of the time for a conman.
Think big, think small it doesn't matter.
You could argue either side as you and the person you quoted just did.
Both would sound equally true, why one is better than the other.
You know what...
You know what all those people have in common (besides the narrative fallacy and halo effect)?
Luck of genetics and luck of circumstance.
The list of people with similar traits as this list who didn't end up rich or with a successful company would be from here to the moon.
They are called the...
This is dead accurate.
I could say alot more...
But I don't care to waste the time.
You know what's worse than not knowing what to do?
Believing a bunch of bullshit you heard or read online and being doomed to failure before you begin.
People need to realize you will NOT find the truth...
I'm talking about adults not kids.
Telling a kid not to smoke or go in traffic isn't really advice.
It's more a command.
And yes it is broad that's why I said probably 99%.
That would be a general heuristic.
It's a lot easier to just assume most advice is either for the benefit of the giver...

I think a good rule that is probably true about 99% of the time is:
If anyone gives people/the public any type of advice/opinions (talk...) in any form (book, podcast, course, video) they are a charlatan.
Its only a question of degree.
The first group know they are charlatans exploiting...
I get what you are saying.
Winning and getting positive feedback can make you passionate about something because you're succeeding at it.
I agree failure does not breed passion or liking doing something.
My point is that a lot of times things that people like tend to be things they have...
