    I need to actually spend some time and read through the study. Were they able to show causality with the names? Because I might consider a name change if so...

    Not verbatim in the study itself, but check the references if you're seriously considering it.

    You can easily try it out online, as well.

    3 forums and/or social networks:

    1. Some obscure name that's hard to pronounce: "PhthiriaRelativitae"
    2. Something that's not too difficult to read, like you have now.
    3. A super common/known name: "JohnWayne"

    Then make 3 different types of posts on each:

    1. Something infuriating/offensive
    2. Something neutral, aka normal convo
    3. Something of extreme value

    Watch how people react. The results won't surprise you!

    You can also use a nickname or shortened version of your real name, if you want it to be more Americanized. (Or tailored to whatever country you're selling in.)

    Not sure what part of the world you're in, but name changes are a PITA. Bank accounts, utilities, legal docs, etc. Some places you have to go before a judge and make your case.

    If you're in the US and you have to do this with a foreign name, all you have to say is you want to integrate better into society.

    Really irks me when people talk about LUCK but they never talk about PROBABILITY. They're conjoined twins.

    Yup, also you can't compare entrepreneurship which gives you a lot of chances to hit it big with a 40 year long career...
    Like Marc Cuban said in business you only have to be right one time and you are set for life so try again and again until the PROBABILITIES are in your favor.

    One quote that I like very much:

    GREAT quote. I'm a quote person. This one is going on the wall!

    You might appreciate how I explain how odds don't faze me: I once faced odds of over five million to one, and I won. Once I did that, I realized I could do anything. The five million to one odds that I overcame was when I was a sperm. Today I know so much more and am so much stronger! Nothing can stop me now!

    Great quote.

    And therein lies the essence of probability. The odds might be poor, but the more tickets you push into the game, the more likely you'll get lucky. All of these "rich habits" are simply more ways you can get more tickets into the game, hence, manipulating probability.

    Yeah, I’m really struggling. /s

    And it really isn’t too insightful, just looks like more mental masturbation.

    • Rich people read? No way!
    • Daily affirmations? I never would’ve thought!
    • Goals?! Now you’re just blowing my mind.
    A couple more,
    • Rich people’s kids go to college? Impressive.
    • Rich people have a lawyer? That’s probably important.
    • Rich people have a will? Well, I suppose if you’re rich, you’ll wanna do something with that money after you die!
    5 years interviewing 177 millionaires, could’ve been doing literally anything else.
