Read Millionaire Fastlane
- Oct 25, 2015
You blaze with energy. High anxiety too, later in the long introduction.Not taking that question at all in the wrong way, that is probably one of the nicest ways someone has tried to "critique" me in my life.
An opportunity to apply my business knowledge.
I went and counted how many pitches I've made on IG alone, 70+ in the past 1.5 months, all gone basically nowhere.
I hear the same shit, there are very very high level individuals who have explicitly said "we HAVE to meet, face to face" and then it fizzles out, I'll keep trying, but it is what it is. I had one guy who is very VERY important in his industry offer to fly me out to his country to help him with a variety of things, ofc I say yes as I am open as F*ck.
It goes from "yeah I'll pay for everything" to "you buy the ticket" to me saying "I'm having this issue, how do we proceed?" (with the full intention of proceeding) and he ignores me.
I'll give you another example of the shit that happens to me, I met this ex pat here who has been here for 20 years, he was into book summaries from 20 years ago (Soundview), I tell him about the 1.5k books I consumed throuh that format, we hit it off and he gives me his business card as he owns a few in the country. I message him and he ignores me, maybe he'll stop going to Starbucks cuz of me lmao, well that's kinda epic....ruining Starbucks for someone haha!
It is what it is, I personally have grown to love failure and people spitting on me, yeah people will tell me it's a "negative mindset" to think about the world like that (you're here to be spit on), but you do the work I do, deal with the abject failure I have, not just the failure but the euphoria from seemingly catching your break and then it completely fizzling out WEEKLY and at times DAILY (I remember this one day when I had 50 people NOT return my messages (yes I actually counted), felt like the loneliest day in the world tbh fam) and then tell me how you keep going.
I have my poker and I am best in the world/20,000 or at worst top 3/20,000 so I will continue to crush that where I am basically guaranteed to have long term success, here is a finish that could've basically changed my life with a DASH better luck from last month

24/4800 so final .5% where there is basically no difference but a bit of luck between me and the best there.
People don't want one of the most motivated 135 IQ people who has accomplished a ton in his life, has a heart of gold and will help ANYONE, and overcome a lot already, in their lives cuz I'm eccentric and arrogant? Cool, they'll make great footnotes and lessons in my autobiography WHEN I do make it, not a problem.
This is my mindset now:

NO ONE CAN TAKE AWAY MY POKER and in the long run I am GUARANTEED riches (relative to the lifestyle I'm after AND where I live, Bulgaria) with it

I'll KEEP getting better everyday, I'll study more, I'll train harder, I'm not gonna give up
I ONLY need ONE break then I'm gonna seize that shit, whoever wants to give it to me, I'll 1000X return them on my F*cking life and everything I got, I am an extremely spiteful person and I will wait a lifetime to return people F*cking with me, BUT on the opposite extreme, if you help me I will NEVER forget it and if I can return it in ANY way I will KILL MYSELF (not literally lma0) trying to return the favor
Example of how I return favors, whenever I get good customer service, I always go back the next day and spend $10-15 at a local bakery with some small sweets to thank the people. Some lady gave me a measuring tape when I asked where I could buy one, so I spent $10 on sweets on her the next day, I've done this with a jewellery shop, clothing shop and gym I used to frequent as the people there always helped me.
I think you sense the problem, which could just be off the charts excess norepinephrine. This kind of neurotransmitter imbalance causes one to be overly sensitive, obsessed with details, and easy to displease or offend. Eat brown rice and maybe notice changes in 1-2 days. Stiffness in neck and back is sometimes caused by high iron levels and nothing else, the side effect of eating too much fresh greens. Again, rice and lentils contain lytic acid which will lower iron levels and dissolve the stiffness and pain.
My first read of you was enthusiasm and a body jammed full of pain-induced stress.
Your introduction pulled me in. It became clear that potential and knowledge are bigger focal areas for you than action is. That is the central mistake.
I see decision errors, such as playing chicken with a business prospect over a plane ticket, caused by this attitude.
Second, the scores you report are again focused on ability but not on action.
IQ score has zilch to do with developing the brain's neural network governing executive function. Executive function is the basis for making everyday decisions and having decision-making insight, as well as working out extensive decision trees.
Very successful, creative, powerful people score 112 IQ, but they can also dance circles around someone with 160 or 165 without the aptitude to make the right decision, or, sometimes, make any decision, because whatever their IQ is, the "no need for high IQ" minds not only know the codes to survival, they write them. It is a different kind of aptitude than what IQ measures. Those with the really soaring IQs sometimes fall short in the decision making department because high IQ individuals can be functional illiterates. Successful people without high IQ will blaze with an intelligence that is not viewed as valuable in the traditional educational system. It's still genius. I encourage you to study people you encounter so that you can develop this range of aptitude.
The prison population in the US is teeming with 135 IQs.
It would be more realistic to make the point that focus and diligence can make "anyone" a top champion at games of mental skill such as poker and chess, instead of insisting that you have 1 in a billion potential.
You are looking for like-kind here, and understandably so. You'll find this, once you have removed the coat hanger from the shirt you've got on and start poring through the topics here and learn the mindsets of m/billionaires and others who want to enjoy as many moments of their lives as they can. This will be a journey, not an event.
I would like to follow your progress from being someone surrounded by barriers to entry into any kind of work to a pretty relaxed, formerly fat cat millionaire.
Good luck as you go.
