While watching some Gary videos (thank you RhysT1) I had a déjà vu moment.I kept wondering where I've seen it before...and it suddenly hit me.

Did you notice how much Gary and MJ have in common?

Worth a bump for 2017... in case one of your New Year Resolutions was just to "read more".

If people are paying so much to help themselves, why aren't there more successful people in the world?
1. People's version of success and improvement vary wildly. For some people (most people), financial wealth is not an indicator of success for them, but rather fulfillment and love/bonding are higher on the list.
2. There are way more successful people in this world than most people think. For example, if there are 7B people in the world, and 1% of them are financially successful, that's 70M very successful people. If each of those 70M people only spent $141.50 on self help, you're at $9.9B in money spent on self help.

Because of their version of "help themselves".

For us, we believe helping ourselves means taking action to upgrade our life situation. For most people, they just want to assuage bad feelings by pretending they're doing something. So that's what the self-help industry provides.

Producers vs consumers.

Yes. People are in two groups. Some talk about 99% and 1%, some of wolves and sheep. Team consumer, team producer. You get the point.

The game is RIGGED against the first one.
EVERYTHING is engineered to profit the second at the expense of the first.
Why? Because the second group engineered it. If it would have been up to the first, we would be cavemen with great social welfare.
I disagree, it's not engineered it's the survival of the fittest.

Some people are born with a genetic predisposition to work hard and find creative solutions to problems and the rest with a predisposition to laziness and ignorance.

In the past, the hardness of Nature would clean the genetic pool constantly, giving smarter and stronger individuals much higher survival and reproductive chances.

Now, because we created an environment where you can survive and have a good living with whatever intellectual and physical conditions you're born with, the genetic pool is not benefiting those with better fitness, we basically have overriden biology.

There's no engineering IT JUST HAPPENS. There's no one stopping people to do the thing and be successful. In the "comfort" of their lives they choose to keep being lazy.

So obviously those who make merits get rewarded.

And personally, I think the edge is increasing, there're SO MANY dumb and lazy people that the differences between poor and rich will become bigger and bigger over time. We're heading towards an idiocracy and if some sort of conflict happens it will be because of the morons of the world.

If you pay attention we're seeing a rise on many different variations of social marxism, and I think it's directly correlated to what I said, the number of people wanting to be rewarded for doing nothing it's increasing.

The question is, are you a real entrepeneur? Are you doing the work?

If the answer is YES, be grateful for being born with the appropriate necessary traits, or you would be playing video games and watching pr0n in front of a cheap a$$ pizza while blaming everyone else for being such a huge failure.

I sure am grateful, I thank Mother Nature for my DNA, capitalism for creating a safe environment with merit based rewards and entrepeneurs for making the world better.

I agree with all of that. I noticed that I accomplished more when I didn’t have smartphone or internet access, because all I could do was just “try and see what happened, then try again” instead of “read, find the secret that you’ll never find, then read again”

I think this really hits home with a lot of people. Perhaps the reason why so few people attempt to start a business, follow their dreams, and actually act on things is simple - They're afraid. And they know that if they act on them they will most likely fail and that validates the reason why they never tried to begin with.

I remember when my dad was sick with cancer and he refused to try CBD after chemo had failed. I begged and begged and begged him and the reason was simple. He knew it wasn't going to work and was terrified of that validation that says "Wow, you really are out of options now".

Most of the people I know who are the angriest are not the ones who live in fantasy land and dream about Yachts and Ferrari's, it's the ones who tried their entire lives and could never get it. The resentment they have in them is of unspeakable levels.

Regardless - This post is fantastic and that seems to be the constant answer on this forum - rightfully so! Just do the damn work. No magic secret, no $5,000 course, no vision boards. Just do the work.

Gary V is a wanker just like Grant Cardone and the rest.
His guru persona is that of a stern fatherly "mentor" who "cares about you", who hustles 24/7/365 and is constantly busy. The only thing one can learn from him is the way he speaks, which is extremely convincing and assuring. Notice how everytime when you watch Tony Robbins and GaryV's videos, you feel that high, warm and fuzzy feeling inside?

With that kind of talking skill, one can build large audiences, a gigantic cult following, and the ability to sell ice to eskimos.

Yeah but one thing GaryV said really struck a chord with me. He said something along the lines of "I tell people all of the time, listen - you're 25 or 26 and that plan you have is great! Within' 5 years you will could have a seriously solid business in play. They look at me with disappointment, as if 30-31 is considered old. They want it immediately. Everyone thinks you're supposed to have life figured out by 30 when in fact most people are just starting".
