Not just my own momentary failure motivates me to crush it better next time.

Also my father's slowlane story.

My father has enough money to live.
But just for a few useful mobile phone accessories, summing up to a few dozens of Euros, such as USB cables, chargers, cable adapters, OTG adapters, powerbanks, MHL cables, etc., I had to argue.

My motivation is not ending in life like him, where he struggles to do these minor purchases, even after working in a J.O.B. for a lifetime.

Of course, those are liabilities, no assets, but they would have been very useful.

This can be a very strong motivation indeed, in fact finding myself in a similar situation was my feck this moment. So if if helps you move forward use it.
I will give you a word of caution though, don't let it also drag you down, you have a tendency to come over as very negative towards your dad and this will not help you if you keep focusing on this. A lot of his traits will be yours as well (I'm still amazed how much I'm becoming like my father as I mature) therefore I recommend you look for the positives in his life and be grateful for them. He has shown commitment, love and determination all traits you should have and develop in your fast lane journey. Just because he travelled the slow lane doesn't mean there's not a lot you can learn from him, there is. Look for the positives and be grateful for him and what you can do because of him.

Agreed.

Very nice parents.
Even with partially entrepreneurial mindsets despite being in slowlane.
