Is being selfish all that bad? I say yes and no. If you have a genuine goal and focus in your life. I say fuck it! Be selfish to your heart contends. Why you may ask? Because you're focused. You simply have no time for BS, doing favors for others who may or may not value your time.
Time is so finite, it comes and goes before you know it. One moment you're in high school or college with a dream. A few sidetracks later you're in your 30’s or 40’s scrambling to get your goals and dreams accomplished. This is how a midlife crisis happens. Time has passed trying to find yourself, having fun with friends. Working a job you mildly enjoy, not giving it your all, fearing failure, fearing not being good enough, helping others for whatever reason, and so on. Life has passed you by. But it's not too late, to separate yourself, focus and be selfish.
It’s your life you live it how you want when you want. I get that. Who am I to tell you what you should do with your life. But meet me halfway. Ask yourself do or did you ever have goals and dreams? Now ask yourself are you accomplishing these goals and dreams? Are you where you want to be in life?
Now if you're not working towards these goals. What are you doing? What happened? I bet during your journey throughout life you may have been a little more selfless than you needed to be. Either that or procrastination has a big part of this. For me, it’s both of these. Even though I have many things accomplished in my life. I still feel like I haven’t accomplished anything yet.
If only I was a little more selfish throughout my journey. I’d be much closer to where I want to be. I’d be that glorified software engineer. Decorated with 4+ degrees and 20+ certifications and certificates. Id also has mountains of apps, websites, and software for download. Online courses, books, a thriving business, and YouTube. If only I’d just said no or maybe refer them to someone that has the time to help them. Throughout my life, I’ve helped people and have gotten nothing in return. I even take the time to help those that knowingly hate me and very publicly tried to stab me in the back.
I’m sure there are many of you out there that has done the same thing. Honestly, it feels right for me to help others but not like this. As I said above time is finite. So I’ll just be helping people indirectly from here on out. I’m making myself a ghost, impossible to get a hold of. If they do get a hold of me I simply say no, or I can’t with no explanation.
I’ll have many things online including this platform that can help them. Wanna learn to trade or improve your coding, try kodotrading. Want to get fit kodofitness; want to overall improve yourself kodoninja and so on. Everything will be carefully researched planned, written, and filmed. My time is valuable. I’ll charge a premium for my services outside my various free and paid materials. Because in actuality I’d rather be improving and creating content that can help countless people at one time. That's mutualism, the best thing for everyone.
I’m sure if you were a little more selfish in life you would have that dream job by now. Or in general, you would at least know you put everything into your goals and got the most out of what you wanted to do. If you stop to take care of everyone's needs before yours; you’ll always fall short of who you are and who you want to be. It’s never too late to isolate yourself, leave those needy “friends”, family and others behind that are using you. Forget everything and everyone else and focus on who you're meant to be.
Why does modern society fear change so much? Today some are taught we are perfect just the way we are; That everyone should accept the way we are no matter what. Doesn’t matter how we look, our health condition, how competent we are, you name it we should just accept and reject any form of improvement whatsoever. So I revisit the question why does modern society fear change so much?
To answer this question I’m unsure. If you ask anyone who has adopted this ideology they wouldn’t have a clear reason either, only bouts of fear, animosity, rage, and anger. Their resting response would be something along the lines of I’m perfect the way I am, stop trying to change me.
If you believe your perfect the way you are. I believe this article may be uneasy for you to read. I’m just human and this is my opinion on the matter. Not meant to offend anyone, just to offer a different insight. If you humor me I think I can offer some insightful logic.
In the earlier periods; humans who didn’t improve by learning to fight, hunt, swim, or survive died. Others couldn’t carry their weight for them they were left to die. Women would attach themselves to the strongest, fittest, and smartest. So they could survive, and make healthy strong offspring. There have been variations of this throughout millennia to today.
Today our food is caught, hunted, prepared, and available to anyone via markets. We have local authorities, and militia to do most of our protecting for us. The government, family, and friends do our thinking for us. The government can also provide any finical assistance that’s needed. Free healthcare, free education, and libraries, everything is provided for adequate living.
With everything provided to the modern person, why do we need to improve? Hell if your obese, weak, broke, bitter, spiteful, short, unattractive, unemployed, uneducated, unhealthy, cowardly, and so on. There are dozens of like-minded individual that will agree, follow, love, and be attracted to you. With all that said I can almost justify the logic for not needing to change or improve. After all, there’s someone always out there like you.
Here are a few scenarios today that require a change to survive.
You’ve become unhealthy in some shape or form
Now you must adjust your eating or drinking habits.
Or you may have to work out to get back to a healthy shape.
You in need of more income for bills, food, etc. (handouts is not an option)
You must get another job; with current skills
Obtain new skills by going back to school, getting certifications, a trait, etc.
Ironically these types depend on those that have embraced change. Those in the military protecting the country, had to change to become the greatest, and strongest to protect everyone. The first responders, police, doctors, veterinarians, farmers, engineers, and countless others all had to adopt change, improve and acquire new skills that others depend on. The handouts received by the government are all from those who work and pay taxes. They’ll also look up to celebrities who embraced changed to become that public figure. They’ll even vote for a president with the campaign of change. There are dozens of heroes throughout history that fought for their rights refusing to keep things the way they are
Change is a choice it's not a requirement. After all. I’ve given ample amounts of reasons as to why you shouldn’t change. Change is scary. Improving is almost like your going away from who you are. More importantly effort, perseverance, and skill frighten us all. We’ve gotten so used to being lazy clinging to who we believe we are. We reject change at all costs. The choices and decisions we make today define who we are tomorrow.
You stop learning at college now getting that dream job requires you to constantly be improving. Bettering your skills and learning new content in your spare time. Not to mention they prefer the individual with the extended education. Those that actively peruse what's required as a hobby. Hiding out your years at a job anyone can do won't cut it. Success doesn’t fall out of the sky for the lazy and unmotivated. That dream guy or girl will forever remain a dream. Because anyone who has ever succeeded at anything doesn’t want a fat, lazy, slob who runs away from improvement. Success will likely never reach those who don’t want to improve.
But regardless of what you do or how you feel. Hopefully, you don’t end up like those that hate and despise others that go 110% at the gym. As well as those who read 20+ books a month, write their books, and pursue higher educations. For people like myself I give it my all, I work very hard to have the body I have. Including creating apps, and platforms, for various other businesses. This list goes on. Don’t despise those that do everything in their power to become the greatest version of themselves. Or expect them to be your lifeline, they cant be successful for you.
The safe space that’s keeping you from change is ultimately destroying you. It keeps you weak, poor dumb, compliant, and depending on others. Anyone who revokes change is destined to fade away becoming a distant shadow of those who became someone. No one ever remembers the people that didn’t try. They get left behind with all the other losses. It was your choice to run from opportunities; To pick apart the idea of self-improvement. Now the only persons that can relate to you are also those that’ll never accomplish anything.
The takeaway, it’s not too late for change. Start slow if you do decide to. Try I minor improvement seeing how it feels. But put some effort into it don’t give up. Let me know how it goes, if a change isn’t for you you can always remain the same.
It almost seems like every person I come in contact with wastes my time. People who you think are your friends do not feel the same way. In most cases you can see the red flags, they’ll even tell you. “I don’t want to waste your time” Admitting their silly nature, preparing you for the upcoming bullshit. Run for the hills! In other cases they’ll hide it, cloaking their true nature and intentions. These are troubled, deranged individuals who lack purpose in life. They may even be someone close to you. In any case, let us travel through our 8 signs people are gonna wasting your time.
They take, but never give
The next person asking you for something, ask yourself. What have they done for me? Are they trying to get more out of a relationship than they put in? Have they even done anything for you? The majority of people are just trying to use you and waste your time. They’ll avoid any real interaction where they have to put in the same. They never had any intention of being equal with you. Here are a few noticeable circumstances and questions to consider.
Do you always pay for food?
Do you always pay in general?
Are you doing most or all the work?
They give excuses as to why they can’t do something.
Are you always motivating them to be better?
They ask for everything but give nothing.
Are they always asking for favors?
They rarely say thank you.
They just expect you to go above and beyond for them.
Are they always borrowing something of yours?
Did any of this hit home for you, All of which does for me. Hell! I know people who display every one of these. Just drop them! Life is too short for this.
They love to ask questions
You're ever truly analyze a person's questions? Oddly enough, people will ask questions with absolutely no purpose or end goal. It could even be an opinion, statement, or rhetorical question. The question could be so absurd and foolish, but they shoot their shot anyway. It could also seem pure and meaningful. But if someone is there to constantly ask questions and never act on the advice or response. They are there to waste your time. I know you’ve been there and was like WTF. What was the point of that? Why on earth would him/her ask me that.
I mean, they have Google on their phone. They know they can get the question anywhere else, but they choose to bother you. Sometimes it'll be repeated questions about what you're doing?, How you're doing, and so on. Your past, your future… Just purposeless questions to elicit a response. Many of which is a nice dig to you. A malice question geared to your goals or likes. Just empty nonsense.
They always have excuses
You have ever been around someone that always has excuses. They have reasons why they're poor. Reasons for why they don’t want to read, learn, lose weight, etc. They have a reason and excuse for every short cumming in their life. Not everything in life warrants an excuse. At some point in life, people will have to understand what’s going wrong and fix it.
Ask a person to allocate time to do a productive task with you or for themselves. See if there’s an excuse. Try to get them to do anything outside their comfort zone. Excuses and many more will follow.
They don't respect your time
If a person can’t get their life in order, they’ll more than likely not respect your time. Time is so finite yet some spend it trying to get it to pass quickly. If they can see you heavily involved with something good, they’ll find some way to interject and keep you from that task. They have no shame in their actions.
In rare cases, others will feel your time and life are so beneath them. They’ll spare some of their to waste yours. A boss at a job anyone can do is notorious for this. They’ll have you doing a stupid task (busy work) and asking purposeless questions.
They distract you from your goals
You come to notice the surrounding persons often have a hidden agenda. These types of people are foolish. Thus, they are just trying to harm you, keeping you from focusing on your goals. They can see that you're doing something good.
Observe the person wasting your time. You will notice a few common traits.
They’re always on their phone
They feel envy or jealousy towards you
Your success may piss them off
They spend their time hiding from work
They’re always wasting time.
Furthermore, they don’t like change. “Complains of people trying to change them”
They cling to a 9-5
They stopped learning
They gossip seemingly all the time
Consuming useless TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube… videos
Watching pointless TV, and movies
They love to watch sports days on end
They love to play games
Hanging out with friends, family, etc.
Engage in useless conversations and activities
Everything listed above is their life. And your activities and goals are outside their scope of understandings. They don’t get why you work so hard. Your focus and determination is an act of war when all they do is let their life fly by. Thus, it's an unrelenting task to bring you down to their level, to get you to relax, take it easy, and not try so hard.
They lack purpose in life
These are people with no direction whatsoever in life. They perhaps have had a dream in life, but, never really pursued it. However, you, compared to themselves. Are doing much better in life.
They see you’ve had success and accomplishments in life. Thus, it forces them to take a harsh look at their lives. When they do, they can see that in comparison to you, they haven’t accomplished anything.
They just don’t like you
They may not realize it yet, but they don’t like you. Perhaps they may have believed at some point there were similarities between you two. But come to find out your very different. You may realize they're uneasy around you. They will walk up to you, smile, talk to you, but you’ll come to notice there just trying to waste your time. They’ll often throw petty insults at you to elicit a reaction.
Everything about you pisses them off. They hate you to the core. When they come around you, you can see an uncontrollable rage building up. You can feel the malice in their tone, their breathing has increased. Their words, useless questions, and targeted statements are all poised to spite and move you off-center. If they know you like something, they go out of the way to insult it. They’ll even make it painfully obvious there out to get you. In a work environment, they’ll throw you under the bus at any choice they get. They can come up with trillions of complaints about you, to mask their intentions.
You may even come to them with earnest intentions, trying to help them. Or just trying to see how things are going, life is treating them, etc. During the conversation, they’ll go out of their way to once again throw shade on you.
They don’t care
This one can be obvious, and it often won’t be. Many times you’ll be so passionate about your topic that you may overlook the signs that someone doesn't care what you're talking about. Let's say for instance learning how to day-trade. You have a friend that knows your day trade. So that person or yourself may bring it up. The conversation, tells them they can make a full-time living with this skill. So their interest peaked. They want to make money, they don’t necessarily like trading. So you tell them it’s simple you just got to learn the basics, learn some strategies, volume, trends, patterns, blue chips, penny stocks, and so on.
They don’t care, they just want the money. You’ll give them links to YouTube videos, articles, free books, and mountains of content. It’s practically walking them through step by step on how to be good at day-trading. The next week or so, you ask how’s it going with it all, they haven’t started. A month later the same and so on. It’s not you, just that they don’t care. They can’t care. They’d like the reward that comes with persons that slave hours, days on end on the material. Ones that put up their own money, risking their earnings to replace their 9-5 and so on.
Again, they don’t care. They’d rather spend their time doing the common traits I listed above. Even if you were to give them everything they need, walking them through everything in person. They don’t care, they just don’t understand it nor do they want to try it. They are just wasting your time, for their true purpose is a little more malice in nature. If they don’t put forth the work, and effort to try it on their own time. Don’t give them an ounce of your time, avoid them at all costs.
In conclusion, people come in many types in the world. By now, you’ll be able to spot out a time waster a mile away. If you come across them, just understand they are who they are. Don’t judge them or help them. They have no intention of changing their malicious motives. Just be aware of their nature, and how to spot it.
If you’d like. You can take my approach. Keep them seemingly close, and observe their actions. If you know they don’t like you, give them more of you. If you know their goals or dreams, motivate them to pursue them. You may even loan them tools, equipment, a book, or two, links, referrals… Make their next step to their dream easy as pie. Invite them to your overproductive world. “Be their best friend”. Give them a taste of what true hard work looks like. Show them your accomplishments, tell them they can do it too. Be the best damn motivational speaker ever. Have the greatest of intentions for them. Let them believe they can use you. Give them every reason to believe you're a sucker, just some dumb-ass they can use to get ahead in life. Then watch their hate for you multiply, as they try extremely hard to hide it. Ignore their words entirely and focus on their actions. You’ll notice they are completely adjacent to one another. Reflect some kindness to their hate. But never lose focus of your goals…
When you're done, get your stuff back in some kindly fashion. Be nice. Be smart about what you loan out in the first place. Let them know about who they are, call them out about what they're up to. Be radically blunt if you must. Then turn around and be the “sucker” again, lead them on. Continue to give them the impression that they are the ones leading you on. You’ll notice they’ll avoid you like the plague; when they realize you were on to them from the very beginning. They might even make it seem like you're the evil person to others close to you. They’ll deny it, trying to see if they can still milk you for more of your time, money, resources, etc. Not only that, but they’ll truly believe you're a sucker and will keep at it, despite you calling them out. If you're lucky. When you're being nice, it’ll confuse them, and they just run away from you. But a new day means they’ll try to get you again, oddly enough.
These types make it a habit of life to agitate you, spite you, and bring you down. No matter how hard they hide it, you’ll hear bouts of anger and aggression to your every being. They can’t hold it in for that long. Your existence is an insult to who they are. They feel personally attacked by everything you do and say. They just can’t handle it. Furthermore, they aren’t productive, only lazy and bitter. Even your compliments get them angry. The petty insults will increase no matter what you do. Stay calm, stay focused on the bigger picture in life. Success, focus, and tranquility is the greatest weapon for them. Misery loves company. Any other person would truly love you and will precipitate that positive energy back towards you. They’ll go above and beyond for you as well.
This was just a bit of a curiosity experiment; Just to show you how malice a time-waster can be. I find joy and toying with these deranged individuals. But give it a try with a co-worker you suspect. I guarantee you’ll never let an individual like that back in your space again. If possible, just avoid them, be selfish and have yourself in the best interest. These types can be dangerous if you're unable to spot them.
Like my childhood hero Batman, There are reasons why I generally work alone. You can’t deny he has an unrelenting determination towards his goals and beliefs. He may seem deranged the way he stays focused on crime-fighting. He puts in the effort to become the greatest martial artist, and detective the world has ever seen. Bruce has sacrificed his personal life, friends, and family. The only real friends he can have. Are ones just as crazy for the same beliefs?
Alright, so my point in all this? I’ve become Batman! Well minus the whole billionaire playboy, cape crusader, crime-fighting, and detective thing.
It’s difficult to find my Selina Kyle or Barbara Gordon in this world of Millennials. So I work alone. It wasn’t until Batman was succeeding in his goals until the right help (friends) came into his life.
As I am right now, it’s harder to attract sidekicks to my entrepreneurial journey. So let’s get into the 5 reasons why I work alone
1. Priorities, priorities, priorities.
People will not have your full attention, no matter how established you are. When you're aiming towards a goal, It is near impossible to find someone who will follow you. Someone who will allocate as much focus and determination as you do.
Let’s face it, today people have dozens of priorities, and you aren’t one. For the average person, you may not realize it. But people have jobs they need to focus on. That job brings income for bills, family, and personal matters. That job can mean the world to them, regardless of the reason. There are family matters, friends, and their hobbies, and dreams they care more about.
It’s selfish to bring someone onboard your pursuit. People have their own goals they’d like to accomplish. Granted, some are lacking direction in life. It’s still their life. If that life seems lackluster to you, it's a priority to them, they care more about it. Hell, today, a cellphone is the primary focus of one's life.
If someone isn’t on their focus or purpose, that's not someone you'd want to work with. The trick is, they’ll find you, or you’ll seek them. Find a common goal. Jason Todd, Barbra Gordon, Damien Wayne all have a common goal that perfectly aligns with Bruce’s (Batman’s) vision. If you're a content creator with a similar vision, find the ones like you. The people walking alongside you should be a reflection of your dreams and goals. Find like-minded people along your journey.
There’s nothing more important than having effective communication. All parties involved should be 100% in agreement in all decisions. If you make a decision, everyone agrees; then come crunch time. They’ll do something completely different from what was agreed on. They’ll say well that plan wouldn’t have worked, or this way is better for me. That’s a disaster, vent them and see the early signs before that happens.
Hang out with the individuals, test them to see if they’re a good fit. Often Communicate with small projects and plans. If you can’t agree on smaller things and a smaller setting, they aren’t for you. If you agree on something. Then come to find out that person just doesn't get it. Or they don’t want to do it, just aren’t interested in you, your thoughts are what you're saying. Run for the hills! If they're also expressing concerns to others and not you. Move on. Life is too short for others to waste your time. If you do decide to address them to see what happens, and it persists, this isn’t a communication issue. It’s, and I don’t respect your time, or your dreams issue.
These types of individuals aren’t worth the time and stress. Make sure there mutual respect and understanding. You have to respect each other's time, and agree that you respect each other's time.
3. Work Ethic
A lot of people don’t bring anything to the table. They just want, what they can get from you. Don’t be the person doing all the work. The people you’re around you should reflect you entirely. The right people will gravitate to you and respect your work ethic. Be sure you have the same gravitational pull towards them. There should be no one trying to use or manipulate one another. Be vigilant of those that see you going places, and use that as an opportunity to tag along.
You’ll be fooled by empty promises and lackluster work. They may be occasions where they may not know as much as you do. But they can assist in other areas. This is up to you. It can work, but I prefer the Batman approach. I like to have as much in common as possible. Aiming for the same dream at the same unrelenting rate. The ones that batman brings in his corner. He trusts completely. They don’t slow him down nor do they fall behind, chasing an adjacent dream leading him on.
Imagine having a dream of becoming a big-time YouTuber. This dream, has tech reviews, day trading, investing, self-improvement, and so on. This is a very specific and complicated goal. Not too many people have this dream. Now imagine coming across another person following that same dream. Not just a talker saying there going to do it. But a person that's actively putting their work online. You two meet to share ideas, and eventually, start working and collaborating; for what is now a common goal.
That’s the best-case scenario, finding a person who shares the same passion as you do. While following your dreams, you know have found the right people in your life. Have you ever tried to bring someone onboard your mission; Just to later find out they don’t care about helping you. They are more or so careful about what they can get from you during your journey. Their priorities are completely elsewhere, giving you half the attention, and a fraction of the work done.
Well, this person just doesn’t have the same passion for your dream as you do. Regardless of how you may feel or what they care more about. It’s selfish to believe you can have someone give the same amount of effort and consideration as you do. I’m sure their goals aren’t film making, editing, fitness, trading, and so on. They're not going to give it much concern to learn how to edit professionally, help you film, and share ideas.
Befriend others like you. Be with a dream girl or guy like you. Share the same passion. Become better at whatever that goal may be. In this scenario edit each other videos, motivate each other, give pointers, help each other film, share equipment, and so on. Just be sure you can trust them and make sure that person goes in 150% just as you do.
There’s a lot of fake people in the world. Most of which are standing right beside you. So you need to be able to trust the ones you bring to your team.
The list can go on and on, so you need to thoroughly vent the person beforehand. I can’t tell you how many times companies and startups have invited the wrong kind of a person into their projects.
I’m going to be a one-man army for quite some time. Furthermore, I’ve learned many skills over the years. And work extremely hard on improving what I’ve learned. Luckily what I need to be done in life I already know, and I’m very good at. There is no reason why I need someone with me. However, if I come across a Selina Kyle, or Barbra Gordan along the way. Then hell yeah, let’s work together!
The benefit of this is that you can see their passion displayed through their content. You don’t have to waste time seeing whether they're serious. You two know what is needed and are both willing to make the sacrifices to get the job done. At some point, they can use me for my resources and I can use them for theirs. Mutualism. Until that time comes, I’ll remain a recluse and stick to my 5 reasons for working alone.
If I asked you. Why aren’t you successful? What would you tell me? I assume you’d say something along the lines of:
I’m sure I’ll get a hell of a lot more radical responses if I asked you. Why aren’t you rich? Anywhere from Money is evil to The rich steals from the poor. Now, what if I told you the secret to success is all around you. You even have access to one of the mediums everywhere you go. Can you guess that medium? It’s your cell phone, tablet, computer, or just about anything you may have that has access to the internet.
To be honest there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be successful. The reason your not wealthy or succesfu1 may just be your problem. Information and knowledge have never been so wildly available and accessible. It's literally at your fingertips. If you need to know something you’d normally Google it right. Anything you need to know you just hop online and search for it. How to cook. How to change your tire. How to fix your car. So why is it so hard to Google how to make money etc?
Why is it so hard for someone to Google how to be rich or succesfu1? Maybe you have. Maybe you’ve spent countless hours perhaps years searching through YouTube. Searching on how to make money or be good at something. I have too. I’m on YouTube every day almost all-day researching every and anything on how to make myself better on what I do. And if you’ve been on YouTube enough it always gives you recommendations to similar videos to the ones you watch. If you're looking at money-making strategies you’ll get more of them. The thing is there’s more bullshit then there is good advice. I always solidify my advice from reputable resources and books.
Alright so if it’s so easy to find out how to make money; why isn’t everyone rich? Why isn’t every person living above poverty? So let’s see, there’s roughly 7.6% of the US population that’s Millionaires. 1,700 become apart of this 7.6% every single day. That’s a lot of people becoming rich every day. Would you say those Millionaires know the secret to success? Maybe. You might even say its luck or maybe they know someone or they may even have access to some secret information hidden a vault. Honestly, self-made Millionaires and Billionaires are just like us. Again the self-made 0 to <10% ones. Not the ones born into wealth through inheritance.
You’d be surprised by the people who were born into this world so poor that their parents couldn’t even afford to buy food for them. Yet given the odds, they somehow work, study, plot, and plan there a way too extreme success. Granted there are those in other countries born into horrific conditions. It can be harder next to impossible to overcome those environments. However here in the US there really shouldn’t be an excuse as to why you broke and unsuccessful. If you're not in prison or have any physical, mental, or extreme limitation that may prevent you; there shouldn’t be an excuse.
Every single person on earth has access to the same 24 hours, air, and information you or I have. The same Google, the same internet, the same books, libraries, academies, etc. You might even argue, what about the people at ivy leagues, friends of the rich and so on. Well more times than most they started just like you or me. Being honest they worked hard to get to where they are. They utilized the resources all around them to get into better schools with a better quality of education. And yes there are those individuals more times than often that have access to better information, tools, and resources. However, there are those like myself that are born into absolute nothing. I learned to utilize information, books, libraries, the internet, and teachers to direct myself to where I wanted to be.
If you were born into an environment with a bad education system. What's stopping you from working hard getting better grades to get into better schools? Or simply move to a better environment. Why do we as individuals choose to stay cemented in the unlucky conditions we were born in? Why do we choose to be a statistic to be uneventful. It is your choice to be apart of the 92.4% looking for handout population. There are 116,867 libraries in the US and over 350.000 globally. There are over 312 Million people that use the internet. Only less than 10% of the US population that doesn’t use the internet. You have access to the internet; it’s just about anywhere in the US... Alright, so what was the point in me citing all those statistics? Why talk about the internet, libraries, success rates, and so on.
My point is a success is what you make it. If your unsuccessful, then you choose to be. If your successful well then you choose to be? If you can utilize libraries, books, the internet, and just about any other method or person to advance yourself in life. Then you have no choice but to be successful. You can either use the internet for useless bullshit or use it to become better. I’m not going to go into what you should be studying or researching there’s just too much. Nowadays there are infinite ways and possibilities to make wealth a possibility. It just takes a hell of a lot of reserves, sacrifice, perseverance, sleepless nights, hard work, and dedication.
But if your a fan of kodoninja.com we focus mainly on trading, investing, coding, and anything in between to achieve financial freedom. If you love any of those things, check infrequently. We’ll get you to where you want and need to be. Don’t stop there don’t be like the majority of the population that ignores all the free knowledge and money-making possibilities all around them. If that isn’t your thing find your talents; use your skills and passion on what your good at, to make that into a career. Don’t cement yourself into conditions that will never make you happy and financially free. Aim to slowly trade in your 9-5 for something a little more welcoming to your talents.
The left-government, employers, and haters want you to be broke and miserable so you’ll always be dependent on them for survival. You keep the Government rich through higher taxes levied to the poor. You keep jobs-rich by working for them for pennies on the dollar; A fraction on the hundreds they make from you. As long as your willing to be a slave accepting whatever amount they give you just to stay above broke, they’ll continue to do so. You're paid just above minimum wage for a reason They need to make the most from you, while your still stupid and naive enough to believe that a job and the government determines your right to be financially happy.
And if your making 6+ figures a year they know your semi stupid not realizing that there making a fortune. Sometimes Millions off of you paying you a fraction of that amount. Big tech companies are notorious for this. Making Millions a quarter while paying their coders a fraction of $80,000 - $150,000 of the Millions they pull in per individual. Hence why you can be paid so much and they fight so hard to keep you happy for you not to run away and start your own company. Hell, they may even trap and sue you if you up in seek dreams of your own. If they pay you higher the taxes increase; learn how to escape taxes. Learn to be your boss, before you wake up one day age 40+ getting ready for work at your 9-5. You’ll be still complaining that you are not paid enough. When the answer was all around you and in the palm of your hands the entire time. Don’t go full-retard utilize the resources all around you to get your financial freedom.
Conclusion: The secret to wealth and success is anything that will help to provide you the information, tools, and resources necessary to move forward in life. Which can come in the form of books, information mined from individuals that have achieved great accomplishments and failures throughout their life? That’s it. It’ll take a hell of a lot of tenacity to plow through the bullshit, failure, disbelief, self-doubt, and fear. Let your dream edge you forward through any bullshit that’ll arise. Remember excuses and handouts keep you in the 92.4% of poor, uneventful individuals who will never amount to anything in life. Sacrifice, put off the instant gratification of new things to invest then reinvest your money. Live slightly below your means to ensure you have more to invest. Don’t be the person who looses there job for a few months and everything falls apart. (cough* COVID-19)
Let me start by saying; this will be from a man's point of view. However, the ladies can learn from this as well. Whatever your into trust me it works. Here are 5 simple reasons why being single can be quite beneficial. READ TO THE END!
1. Time: Time is the greatest gift from mankind more so than Money, Sex, & Fame. And you shouldn't be wasting any of it. Our time here on earth is very short; tomorrow’s not promised to us, YOLO. So now we have more time to make shit happen. Get fit, read, focus on yourself, spend time with your friends, casually date, explore the planet, go camping, write a book, fuck a friend lol, go clubbing, learn new skills, get an online degree, build a computer… You name it but just don’t waste it. Let’s be honest no one needs anyone they’re billions of girls on this rock no one is special when it's all simplified. Manage your time a lot more wisely now that your single, I’m confident you’ll find another.
2. Productivity: This has turned out to be my favorite from the 5 other than #5. It’s as simple as it reads. You have way more time now; so be productive. If you had plans to build an app, well here's your chance. Build an empire, well nothing’s stopping you. Research, plan, develop, make money, file, etc. Just do it. Not distracted with your girl anymore no excuse. You can allocate your time wisely to get a wide variety of things done. Wanna learn trading, editing, or even how to do a backflip. Just plan it right and do it.
3. Growth: Whether it was mutual, a rough breakup, divorce, a break or maybe you're an Incel. You can take this time to reflect and grow. Make your self better inside and out. Read a few improvement books, watch healthy You-Tube (redpil), study human nature, and learn. Get even hotter women by building up your charterer, importance & body. Get on your grind no women should ever come before your dreams and goals. They'll always be #1. You wanna be the tech mogul, that bodybuilder, that whatever. It is #1. You can’t grow while your chasing someone, you can’t evolve by settling for what you have and what you can get. Always think bigger and better. Then go for it truly become the greatest evolution of yourself. The right one will come to you don’t go looking for her.
4. Freedom: Congratulations your single and free. No nagging girl complaining about nothing, no dates to remember, no trying to prove to her or anyone... Anything can be done just as you intended it to be without the input of anyone incredibly stuck to you. Your FREE so enjoy it.
5. More sex: At this point, you have the time. You’ve developed a mission to be more productive. Those goals you held off because of her now you're getting it done. You can grow, learn new things, talents, hit the gym get an 8 pack, your free to do whatever. And you're not attached. Studies show that single status is the ultimate gateway to more sex. Just ask any frequent club or party hopper. Makes sense, less or no feelings, you can date on rotation, hookup, on to the next… All sounds good; sex lasts roughly last a few hours, and you can quickly get back to your goals.
But..., be smart this can do way more harm than good if done carelessly. Hoping from person to person, club to club, work, friends, new meets, acquaintances... This all takes a lot of time; remember "time", your goals, get in that millionaire mindset. Don't waste your time getting laid; be more productive to improve and grow on every level. For me, I like to focus 95% of my time on strictly me, my goals, and my dreams. I like to constantly improve myself. If you're going to have way more sex than I recommend, cough, hear me out… Find someone in tune, and in “love” with you; or at least likes & respects you. Someone you can casually date. Maybe throw in a few relationship benefits. But don’t let it turn into a relationship at least not yet. Make sure she’s focused on her own goals, getting her own money, building herself up as well. Having the same 80% - 95% mentality as you do. You guys just do the ? 5% ? together, SEX, hookups, light dating hanging out, etc. Then back to the millionaire habit grind. That’s right cough… My solution to being the best singe version of yourself is to do it in a “casual dating relationship” lol. I hope this makes sense to everyone.
I'm going to sum this up into 5 reasons why should always with no exception; date a broke b!^$h. Your trigger warning has been set. This will offend everyone I’m sorry.
1. They’re depended
They love what you can do for them. Everyone has encountered someone in life who isn’t being the best they can be. They tend to be that leech stuck to you. You’ll have to set them on fire to get rid of them. They look to you for anything serious in life, and you’ll notice a look of fear when you hit a bumpy road.
2. They lack true drive and motivations
If someone that close isn’t taking the steps they need to reach their goal. They become that person listed before. They're so dependent on you in life; that they’ll abandon any hope of returning to there own goals. The true drive comes from a person's self-love and respect. A strong woman would have their own goals. There own morals of spending there own money and motivating there own dreams of financial freedom.
wouldn’t it be poetic if you had a girl right by your side who not only motivates you to grow? But they can take your advice and words as fuel to do just as well in life as you. You both can plot and scheme together of becoming ultra-successful. This isn’t that you both are in business together. This can be beneficial and dangerous at the same time; more on that later. But I’m talking about, you have your own business she’s not apart of. And she has her own business that you are not apart of. You both can have a nonargumentative conversation on MONEY, stocks you’ve purchased, investments, bonds, dividends… Planning out how you can both expand and conquer new territories.
Ditch that girl if she isn’t what I just mentioned. If shes plotting her success has it all planned out. And shes acting on it then id probably keep around a bit more to see if she pulls through. Just make sure she doesn't turn out to be #5 on the list; If she does, deuces. No drive and motivations will rub off on you and she’ll drag you by your balls down to her level. Then leave when you're at her level. You can’t slingshot from each other if she isn’t out there financial grinding like you are.
3. They’re a Gold digger
Your girl has no money, a piece of shit car works at McDonald's, living paycheck to paycheck… The list goes on and on. These are sometimes the ones you see at the gym; you know the ones everyone sees at the gym. And the ones every guy around town knows. Wearing a piece of material showing off every detail they possibly can. Doing those workouts just to be seen, wearing makeup and revealing clothes just for the attention. Look deeper that’s a trap. They may have goals, they have their motivation. There dream of becoming an Instagram or makeup model. The same goals every girl these days have. Every post on social media is thirst traps. Meanwhile, they can barely afford rent, star employees at McDonald's. The only thing that's moving them forward is likes, your attention, and your money. They only work that hard on there body so they can pull the best they can get. Those are their true motivations.
It’s so obvious to stay away from the gold digger but yet it’s so hard. Even Kanye fell, but at least he got the prenup and she has her own money. In that case ahhhhh... go for it. But realistically these girls are dating everyone, they love to be seen, to party, trying out different pipes to see which fits the best. A pipe here a pipe there everywhere a pipe pipe. Hell, our media promotes and liberates the piping lifestyle, yolo. This is dangerous, get tested! They’re always on the market looking out for the pipe with the deepest pockets, swinging from one pipe to the next. At the wall and 30, she’s ready to settle down. Ok, let me stop. I'm right, sometimes a gold digger is f-ing Autobot in disguise. Making you believe she’s this hard-working virtuous woman who has her own goals and motivations.
Test her morals challenge her dreams and goals. Run some background checks. You know; the kind that only the neighborhood and her best friend would know. If 80% of her friends are guys and she's best pals with her exes. Ha! Say no more, deuces! Honestly be careful everyone is an Autobot and Decepticon. The best we can do these days is take a similar Kane approach. These are:
- She at least has her own money
- She’s 4.5 out of the 5 listed here
- She has her own goals and motivations
- She's killing it in life or intends to
- A prenup, hide your assets
- Never put your trust in anyone
- Do you (real) research, ask around
- Have an exit plan
- Pipe her well, hope for the best
- Always keep your dreams & goals #1
4. They’re resentful
You become their rival and enemy unknowingly. She’ll hide it so well. Smiling to your face edging you forward making you honestly believe she’s in it for your best interest. Nope, she’s waiting on the chance of it failing. So you can stay in the place she became so comfortable with. Your out here getting things accomplished meanwhile she's looking at her life, her friends, her car if she has one, her discounts at McDonald's, her boss and thinking. “Damn”. So she ain’t haven’t it with you. We either both gonna be broke, or both gonna be successful. Those are her only two options. And she ain’t getting successful on her own. Hint she’s #5 on the list. And she’s on to the next pipe after she has done draining and benefiting from yours. And if she has a nice car etc. with nothing adding up on how she got it. Well, she just got finish draining baller Dave, and every other guy she did maintenance on.
She fell flat on her dreams, she couldn’t follow through shit happened whatever it maybe it didn't happen. And for some reason, she gave up. Don’t waste your time trying to save an [email protected] It takes an extremely strong person to rise above failure to be well in life. A person in that situation is just going to resent and drive a knife through your spine. The more success you achieve the more these spiteful emotions increase the deeper that knife goes. In some cases the girl will look at her life, see where she’s at; reflect and make the changes necessary to reach her goals. If that happens amazing. Just remember the majority of women today are brought up being taught that the man is a source of income. Look good, lie, manipulate to get the best-looking pipe after they’ve had the greatest run; Running the most successful pipe cleaning and maintenance business in the neighborhood. Child support, alimony, lawyer fees, etc its all designed for the women.
5. You are their chance for success
Alright, the moment we’ve been waiting for #5. Gentlemen, she is your chance for success. You are the one she's been waiting for more. A successful man she can use to propel herself into ultra-new heights and stardom. Maybe she has her goals, you know, look good find the best lighting, the best angles. Dropping serious cash on the best makeup, lip fillers, bags, shots, and touch-ups. And mastered the art of filters and photoshop. She's doing ok for herself. Tons of potential pipes on standby, she gets attention, likes, she has followers and a growing fan base. But you have a Hummer. You have a successful social media and a booming YouTube. Her prayers have been answered. Next thing she’s on your platforms, your showing her off not knowing what's going on. Hell, she even has you shouting out her channel, and social media if she has them.
If she doesn’t have social media she might want to get started. S-o she has something to fall back on, while she's looking for the next pipe. Or maybe she just likes being with you because of your success and she can be the #1 listed above. She may have a nice job and she also loves having a successful man who gives her what she wants if she wants it. Your her trophy man and her motivation to see what else is out there. She got a taste of premium piping and now she wants to open up a business for the more affluent; In an even better neighborhood. Because hell if she pulled you she can pull an even better one after your drained.
I know I know not all women are like this I get it. I'm only accounting for 99.999999...% of ladies out there. I’ve met women who are of that -1%. Hell, I know a few ladies near San Francisco and in the OC like this. And they're my type, ironically they’re the types that typically like me. These are the types I make time for. I f-ing love a woman who has her own money, her own brain, her own goals, her own car, her own place. I’m not talking about a supervisor or manager but actual success. Or they can even do that. Being a clerk, or assistant just not a McDonald's employee; running a few side businesses. They have their own plan and schemes for tackling the stock market and any other risky/bold endeavors. They love success and they love challenging, learning and improving themselves.
There a lady, I find sexy and attractive, very positive, helpful and tells it to me straight. Not easily distracted. Knows how to turn down all the rusty pipes and free services. Not a neighborhood celebrity and a known th-t in the clubs, at work and college. They're at the gym working on making themselves a 10 in their own way, but they rarely show it all off. There conservative in every way. They love entrepreneurship and live it themselves. My success challenges them, there’s challenges mine. They aim to do better and want me to be even better. Settling is not an option for both of us. She can buy anything she needs; if she wants or needs it. She doesn’t have to be rich but she needs to want to be there, aims and stops at nothing to get there (without me). A Millionaire mindset for sure.
There are over 18.6M Millionaires in the USA; making up 40% of the worlds population. There are roughly 2,208 Billionaires in the world with 558-658 in the USA. So is it plausible to become a millionaire are even a billionaire? I say yes and no. For the majority of people obviously hell no. You're more likely to win the lottery or be struck by lightning than becoming apart of the <1%. But despite the odds, thousands become millionaires every day. And a new billionaire is spawned every few days. So then my question for you is why not? Why doubt me or even yourself.
I have to mention I don’t care about money contrary to belief. I’m a pretty simple and minimal person. I don’t have much and don’t want much. Not a big car guy, I’m not showy, and I tend to look as simple as possible. My life revolves around 3 main addictions Coding, Investing, and working out. Thus my first 2 addictions are what the focus is on. Investing has become an addiction for me. I’m at a point where I invest 90%+ of any money I receive. More on this later.
Alright so without diving too deep let's look at how a person creates their billions. Below I have listed “all” the ways someone can invest to become a self-made Billionaire. I'll dive deeper into theses in another article. Notice there’s no mention of a job, no 9 to 5, no pyramid BS, or any 6 figure a year careers, etc. Although if you're investing the 6 figures you’ll get their odds are in your favor.
If you were to name any self-made billionaire I guarantee that person will fit in 1 or more of the categories listed above. Let me know below if you come across any billionaire who doesn’t fit in any of the categories. Again I’ll explore these in more detail in the next article. At this point, you can see I at least have an idea of what I’m talking about. There’s, even more, to be listed if your aiming to become a millionaire. Some may say there are infinite ways to make money; I agree.
So here is what I’m currently investing in and how I aim to become apart of the <1%. Feel free to borrow some of my planning for your wants and needs. Here is my 3 part investment strategy.
These are my investments which I intend to detail thoroughly in multiple parts. To pick back up on my addictions I invest and code a lot. I have very little in cash because it is automatically invested moments after I receive money. It has become a sport for me researching and investing large sums of money into the market. 90% invested 5% saved then 5% for any bills, food, and essentials. Since I live so far below my means I can get away with investing so much. Several thousand is invested each month and I live off of pennies. You can even say I barely get by.
The bulk of my investments are spread out though Stocks, Bonds, ETF’s, and index funds. From different brokers and banks, I keep three main accounts one for a Robo-advisor one based on my research and one for trading. There are also miscellaneous accounts for Roth IRA’s Etc. And I never keep a savings account I consider them useless for me; including CDs. I use checking accounts, bills, and essentials. Some people may swear by a savings account. But a 0.01 to 3% interest is nonsense to me compared to the amount received from dividends, investing, and active trading.
The returns are always reinvested back into the market, real estate, or other business ventures. I can go deeper into the stock market in other parts maybe even a series. For real estate, I haven’t yet gotten too deep. However, I will be starting a property management company, etc. this year. This has just been mainly REIT’s and soon rental property investing. Given all this, the main goal is to take S-Corporations public. That’s right I intend to go public very soon but not too soon. I’m also intending to sell smaller companies and software owned by the company I’m taking public for several million. As well as selling other projects I’m working on. And receiving royalties on everything sold.
The first company I intend to IPO is called Aviyon. Check it out in detail at https://www.aviyon.net/ this has been quite the endeavor for several years and is shaping up to be quite the juggernaut. I pay myself $1 a year and will continue to do so to ensure its success and my net worth. You're probably thinking how on earth can he possibly become wealthy making $1 a year. It’s simply the amount I could be paying myself is reinvested into the company. I maintain 100% ownership, 100% rights of everything. It is the value of the tens of millions of shares that I own that matters. Through various stock splits and the addition of millions of shares pumped back into the market that creates true wealth.
The millions of shares I own now will increase in value. (example) Eventually, I’ll have over 100,000,000 shares valued way over $10 a share. The more that’s in the company portfolio the more it will increase the company’s stock value and earnings. Each quarter we plan to release new software, apps, or updates creating a better experience. New methods to bring in more money is constantly generated. The companies portfolio will consist of social networks, online stores, apps, software, etc. Constantly building and reinforcing its portfolio. This is a high-profit little debt strategy that works. Each entity is self-managed. The users create the content all Aviyon does is maintain and build the software better. I was able to create so much on my own with little to no capital. Hence my first addiction; coding. I love to code and create software, doesn't cost me a dime and the turnaround is monumental.
The company has a small team and hedges on remote contractors and freelancers which reduces the cost substantially. 95% of the work is created in-house among a few and the rest is outsourced. Regardless this is how I intend to be apart of <1%. By sheer hard work and perseverance. I’ve spent years studying, investing, and creating mountains of code and software. This company, as well as my ownership of many others, will get me where I want to be. My value will be determined by my net worth. And my portfolio and catalog are looking quite monetary. The investments, the business, and real estate will propel me to insane heights.
Keep an eye out for the other parts as I dive deeper into detail on how I’m going to do it with businesses. I believe you can as well; it takes time, it takes years, sleepless nights, and sacrifices are made every day to edge the dream closer. No BS was mentioned no pyramids no get rich quick schemes. Just a plethora of planning and risk-taking. Check out https://www.aviyon.net/ and research the business. Take a look at my other articles. Become motivated to learn how you can have your financial freedom.
For most what I listed above has somewhat gone over your head. Your immediately doubting me, the methods, and hoping to GOD I fail. Don’t take my word for it research several billionaires, their habits, read books, my references, etc. You're more than likely unhappy living paycheck to paycheck struggling to make ends meet. Hanging on to your job by a thread; that is if you haven’t lost it already do to COVID-19. Most of us reading have never had a whiff of any amount near the ballpark of a hundred thousand. That’s okay, don’t let hard time, statistics, and someone else's opinion discourage you. Let this article motivate you to research down the rabbit hole of the infinite possibilities of becoming financially free.
These are the rules that have gotten me to Millionaire status. Being wealthy is not all that it seems. Many people like myself prefer to appear poor. There are those that you pass by daily that are just like any other person. They wear average shirts, pants, shoes. They drive average to slightly upper-class vehicles. Yet financially they are in a position of extreme surplus.
There are many benefits to being cash poor. My rules below outline the ideals that I’ve developed over time that backup my philosophy.
1. Never see 90%+ of your money:
I never see most of my money, mainly because most of it is immediately invested. Money comes in money is pulled out and distributed to multiple trading and investment accounts. This is explained in detail in other articles. By doing this, not only is the majority of my money coming in gets invested. I’m left with little to no options to waste money on unnecessary things.
If I ever feel the need to buy something I want. My only decision is to use the money made from my investments. I do have a very small cushion of $4,000 (2 month’s expenses) left for emergencies. Any amount larger than that could be making considerable returns via dividends, …returns, day trading, etc. I extend this strategy to large purchases like business equipment or cars. Making decent monthly payments while the majority of the money is reinvested.
2. Convince yourself your poor:
I see something nice I want, maybe it’s a TV or even new computer gear. I can’t get it because I literally can’t afford it. Why because 90%+ of it is invested, 5% for bills, and expenses. I’m only left with less than 5% of my money. Which I ironically end up investing or leaving it in the checking account. As I result I’m left poor. The amount invested isn’t fixed it’s by percentage. No matter how much money comes in I’m always left poor.
3. Everything is planned in detail:
I plan out everything no matter how minor or big. As explained in another article. I’m rarely ever caught off guard. I make plans and adjust to every changing scenario. This is all aimed to accomplish the major goal whatever it may be. Planning out everything is the only way I can ever get anything done. It has helped with project releases, software development, business transactions, and acquisitions; and even this very article.
4. Become forever minimalist:
The hilarious thing is that I became a minimalist by accident. Since I’m left with so little, I became a minimalist by default. Throughout my life, most of my possessions have been removed from my life. Mostly by decisions of others and my own. As time progressed I saw what I truly needed in life what truly mattered. And I got rid of almost everything I owned except a few clothes and my laptop. I started from scratch rebuilding with 1 goal. My business. Almost everything I have now is as a result. I even live in my studio to ensure I’m always getting work done, and cutting cost.
5. Always acquire assets:
I’m not a materialistic person. The thing I desire in life is assets most of which aren’t tangible. When I got rid of everything all I had were assets. I only want something that makes me more money. My computers help me create projects one of which is the kodoninja platform. An asset that makes me money, And I’m consistently creating software and ideas to add to my business portfolios. 90% of the money that’s invested will be reinvested to acquire more and more assets. A never-ending chain of buying and reinvesting. The money made from my businesses is also reinvested back into the business as well as in the stock market. I ironically don’t care about money. My goal isn’t to get myself rich, it’s to get my assets richer. The assets I own... have, and make all the money.
6. Never trust anyone:
From my experience, if you ever want to be successful in life, you shouldn’t ever trust anyone. There are countless stories of people being screwed out of deals. Contracts are written with hidden agendas, individuals who scheme and plot to take for what isn’t there’s. Persons who will attempt to take ownership of you, your work, businesses, all of it. Persons with fake smiles, luring words, false promises, and corrupt motives. I can go on and on. People don’t like you they like what you can do for them, and what they can get from you. Some learn It the hard way as I almost did and some learn from others' mistakes.
It’s no secret about any of this, it echoes throughout history. I’m not saying do everything yourself, I’m saying don’t trust anyone. My advice is to do an ample amount of research before starting a business or project. Consult a lawyer, get as much information as you can. Make sure you do all your filling under your name. Make sure everything legally and copyright-related has just your name alone attached to it. That includes domain names, emails, and bank accounts. Any work you do prove it’s yours, in every way imaginable. Sign your rough drafts, sketches; document everything records yourself if you have to. Most importantly never sign anything. Be careful who you invite into your business, re-evaluate your “friends” and anyone looking to join. Equity and shares of your business are more valuable than anything. If you can try to maintain 100% of everything do so, and pay anyone cash who works with you.
7. Own your work, and your businesses:
In addition to number 6, maintain close to 100% of everything if you can. If it’s possible try to avoid funding and angel investors looking for equity of any kind in exchange for office space or cash. Some investors, like banks, may just want a piece of the pie when you sell or get acquired in exchange for their immediate cash. They may be a better option for you depending on what you want. I choose to fund my business myself to maintain 100% of it all. My business is lean, I and my assistant are the only employees and I look to independent contractors, and freelancers for work we need to get done. Profit margins stay high and I keep my equity. As it continues to grow investors look for me wanting to get into the business. As of now, it’s a private business, that owns other businesses; it scales moderately and doesn’t need any unnecessary funding.
The most important thing is no one owns me. I can make my own decisions without being handcuffed to be told what I can and can’t do or say. I can act swiftly on what needs to get done, no unnecessary employees chiming in to say anything just to keep their jobs. No yes men, no walking on eggshells, no dancing around others' emotions and insecurities just to make them feel good or hurt their feelings. There's no one throwing you under the bus to advance their careers. No unnecessary power play. All the endless bullshit you get from working for someone doesn’t exist when you own everything. I also opted out to a have board. No one can affect your employment or success when you own it all.
8. Have liabilities, just don’t own them:
Liabilities are anything that you own that isn’t making you money. That can be a car, most tech that you own, and the clothes you wear. As I got older I understood that persons with true wealth have many liabilities. Such as multiple cars and homes but don’t own any of them. Well, they do but not directly. Some do it through anonymity protection, some through trust, business ownership, and so on.
After I restarted my life from scratch, I realized most of the things I desired were all tech-based. I only used them solely for creating software, apps, etc. for my businesses. I researched a bit then I decided I should follow suit. Everything from cell phones, computers to servers is all under my company Aviyon. So even though I have and use all of these I don’t own them nor do I pay for them. As for my cars, I tend to create a holding and rental company to house them. When I’m not using them I can rent them out etc. So then my liabilities can become assets. My goal is to own absolutely nothing and have everything I need.
9. Get paid in equity, and royalties.
If you aiming to obtain true wealth you may want to look into getting paid in equity and collecting royalties on your work overtime. This is something that isn’t possible if you work at a job, however, you can accomplish this as an independent contractor. My approach is simple I look for starting and established companies that need work created. In exchange for my services I rarely accept cash, I Primarily accept common stock of that company. This way we both win, they can allocate the money elsewhere, and maintain 100% of their company. And I have stock of that company which may or may not be more profitable.
10. Let money work for you.
My thoughts on money should be apparent by now. Although I don’t like the money I like assets. Any money I do get gets reinvested and reinvested. Time is something no one can get back so working for it seems nonsensical. There’s only so much you can work and make at a job or career. Earned income is capped at a limit, and if you going to do it; have money working for you in the background. Dividends, earnings, ads, and just about anything that comes in without your direct involvement is your money working for you.
I use both earned income and passive income; and will continue to do so for as long as I can. Just about any money I get from earned income is invested in my passive income streams. This is to speed up the process with my dividend investments and trading addiction. Recently I’ve lost complete interest in going in to work, so remote positions will be my focus while I juggle my business and manage the invested money.
These are the 10 rules I lived by for years now; and will continue to do so from now on. I truly believe anyone can become financially free. For it is up to the individual if he or she wants to achieve true freedom and true success.
All-day she's posting on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and just about any other hoe enabled platform. And no shes not posting anything of value. Just empty promiscuous bullshit with her wearing “sexy” clothes and a dumb-ass pose. So I’ll break this down to 5 simple reasons why you should never touch or entertain these types. This only goes for 90% of the social media population so if the shoe fits I apologize in advance. Trigger warning:
There are some women out there who are talented, with multiple things going on for themselves; Intelligent, independent, hard-working, and successful. This isn’t for the go-getter, the strong morals and goal-oriented women. As for the rest of you know who you are and you fit the description.
1. They aren’t special
Seriously they aren’t special. There are over3.6 Billion women on the planet some of which have talent, unique and provide value to themselves and society. Respect for the real women that still exist today. Real women aren’t on Instagram all day posting photos of themselves. Most of the girls today believe there special from Millions of others on FB, IG, SC, etc. that all do the same thing. They’re all fake, dumb, and trying to be the same Insta-hoe. If every girl is posing with the same empty bullshit written below how can they be special.
Every girl is going for the same look and some do it better. Not every girl is a Kardashian, and the fakes can be seen a mile away. Every girl these days is trying to be the next Kardashian. These are the role models of today. Representing the fake culture, the heavily altered fake representation of how girls should look, act, and display themselves today. Competing for the look, social proof, most likes, biggest ass, most dramatic, smallest waist, body counts, etc.
Girls can be working at McDonald's making a few bucks an hour and with the power of the bathroom mirror and their cell phone, they can now be sexy. It’s all a joke. They go to so much trouble and time trying to be someone else. Trying to be the same basic bit#* that every guy around town knows. The time that can be spent on improving themselves and their goals. They choose not to, they live for the attention like everyone else. They are to never be trusted.
2. Maybelline, Filters, and Photoshop
Bruh! it ain’t real, these girls have to spend hours a day painting on their faces just to be accepted. The most average and basic girl today doesn’t need to be attractive. They just need the magical abilities of Maybelline and filters. These girls are afraid to show their actual face in public that’s why they paint one on. There are girls I’ve dated and to this day I’ve never seen how they look like. Gallons of makeup an average body and the help of some clothes suddenly every girl today thinks they're the most beautiful creature that’s ever existed. Add in some filters and a few touch-ups and suddenly they think they're a supermodel.
They get a lot of likes, compliments, and comments and now they believe they're valued. They honestly believe that they’re hot shit. Forgetting the fact that they had to paint their face, filter and photoshop themselves for the attention. It’s hysterical to know that girls out today are an illusion. Most are average at best, and some aren’t even remotely in shape. Good lighting, makeup, a decent pose, and a filter and now they can fool the world that there attractive. The guys only like the photo because they like the fake attractive girl that was created not you.
3. Insecure & miserable
They need attention, they need to feel like they're beautiful when deep down inside they know they aren’t. Most if not all the women are very attractive but they still need to hear it 24/7 from guys the wouldn’t give a chance to. If they stop getting the attention; they go through withdrawal and slowly die. They love the feeling of free attention from guys. Even knowing that the guys are just as much of a loser as they are. These girls are riddled with issues and false superiority complexes.
Online they may look like they have it together, in person as you speak to them to sound as if they're doing ok. But deep down inside they are a disaster barely held together. Their Insecurities run rampant day to day always coming up with new poses and things to say with there attention-seeking pics. Some girls take it to the extreme getting surgery, implants and many other body modification methods for more attention. Not all can afford to do this but I bet if they had the money they’d jump at the opportunity to get it done. Twitch & YouTube are overrun with many nontalented girls gaming horribly. Their tits are out for attention speaking about nothing. Soaking up all the attention and comments they can get.
Today has never been so easy for anyone to get immediate gratification from anyone anywhere anytime. No matter how your feeling you can whip out your phone post something provocative receiving all the attention you need. The problem is it’s never enough attention or DM’s for anyone. Girls get high off of it, they live to be felt great from others. But it doesn’t last very long, then they're back to feeling unwanted and depressed.
4. She’s a hoe
If she’s always posting photos of herself there’s something off. Not including if she ever posts a club photo, house party, alcohol, etc. This is a major red flag. I’ll immediately cut someone off if I get the impression that this person may be a hoe. If she needs to post dozens of photos of herself a week. If she needs the likes and comments from others to boost her self-esteem; that’s my cue to cut her off. If I’m already following and are “friends” with this person I stop communicating with the person. For me, I take the time to remove any trace I ever communicated with them. Any likes, comments, messages all gone all deleted. I’d never delete or block the person, I’ll just wait for that person or manipulate them to delete me.
I’d suggest you’d do the same these girls will all end the same, and never be thereafter she gets bored of being a hoe. NEVER let this person into your life. Remember there are Billions of other women to be with. If you feel It in your gut it's true. Attention whores are even worse, don’t be like the rest of the morons validating these worthless girls. Following them around, agreeing with every full retard statement she says. They don’t like you they like the attention. Dozens of men hit on these types because they are the easiest to [email protected]
In most cases this is true. Girls like this always put themselves on display sometimes for attention. But most often looking for the right guy to hook up with. The photos are to show the guy she wants that she’s sexy. Those guys you rarely see liking their photos. And if she has a boyfriend or husband and still putting herself on display. RUN. Stay far away, shes a hoe. She’s posting these single ladies' photos for a reason. I know this because I went through a few like this. Girls with boyfriends looking for guys to have fun with. Even if it's only a few pics I’d still cut them off, I date the ones with very little to no social media presence.
5. Talent-less & worthless
They have nothing going on for themselves but for their job. Take away their appearance, Instagram and other accounts what do they have to offer? Now for the attractive women; remove their accounts. what do they have going on for themselves? Nothing, absolutely nothing. It’s the sad truth that guys often forget. Why would anyone who has things going on for themselves be on social media all day? The girls working hourly jobs with no real plans for success are 9 out 10 times worthless. But on social media there mini-celebrities wannabe Instagram models. In there head they have so much going on for themselves. I applaud the ones who make a career from social media pics. At least they learned to apply it.
For the rest, they often forget the fact they flip Krabby patties for a living. They forget they can barely afford rent, car payments, insurance, in debt, bill steady pilling. But they’re on social media daily, seeking any attention they can get. Their life revolves around swiping there card, painting there face for attention and a few moments of fame. These are the ones that are usually confused as to why they're still where they are in life 5, 10 years later. Never taking the time to explore their talents and perfect there skills if they have any.
They're worthless, they’ll be there months, and years from now still posting photos; seeking any attention they can get. What's funny is that even though they have nothing going on. There’s never a shortage of low-value guys slipping in there DM’s, commenting, and liking their photos. These guys are even worse and I cut them off as well. I cut all that shit off there extremely unproductive in life.
Procrastination is my second most feared thing on earth, next to time its self. If your not careful; there can be instances where it's too late. It’s frightening knowing you have something that you need to do but for some reason subconsciously you keep yourself from doing it. I’ve been there I’ve even put off important things for years, and it affects me to this day.
So I have 10 ways to surely get you back to a life of prosperity and achievements.
1. Just fucking do it!
A bit blunt but this will remedy 90% of your problems. Seriously just fucking do what you need to do. You need to clean your room, do it. You need to do assignments, just do it. Anything you have to do, just walk over and do it! Boom less stress, and now you can cross it off on your list. Make a habit of your needs. Program yourself to prioritize the thing you need to do daily. Often you’ve done a plethora of research but the still prolonging things you want to do. If you’ve been reading about it for months, just do it your ready.
The list goes on. Some things on this list or your list can simply be done just by fucking doing it. Others require many steps and research to accomplish. Wanna get fit to buy a fucking membership and go to the gym. Most gyms have free Wi-Fi use it, YouTube fitness workouts and do it. Do more research as you go on. And don’t be the dumbass that buys a personal trainer lol. More on that in another article. Wanna learn how to invest, do it, then invest. No one got anywhere in life being a bitch afraid of being hurt. Sometimes you gotta be a dumbass and just fucking do it. Don't overthink, Don’t over-analyze, just do it. I’ll be honest with you. You maybe be afraid to fail and afraid to lose money. Well, you will fail, and you absolutely will lose money. That’s the whole point. Learn to make 10x more than you lose. Every successful person has made sacrifices and fear was absent from their thinking.
2. Make time for it, sacrifice
Think of the most successful persons on earth; now think of the most unsuccessful people on earth. One thing they have in common is time. Everyone has the same 24 hours a day no matter what class, race, height, net worth, etc. It all depends on how you allocate and utilize your time. If you’ve ever uttered the phrase I don’t have enough time, then there's something wrong. If you don’t have enough time how the hell did Jay-Z make things happen? How did Mark Zuckerberg or any other Billionaire get to where they are if they didn’t have the time. We all have the same 24 hours. So make the time. Do you need to hang out with your friends, watch TV, movies, social media, drink, clubbing,… Got kids to find a baby sitter. Have distractions, remove yourself from distractions. You are the sole reason why you're not doing it. Fuck excuses. It’s time you make a sacrifice; no one has become anything incredible wasting time.
You know you need to get something done or become good at something to be someone. So stop putting yourself in a position where you have to make rime for your goals in dreams. Your life should revolve around your goals. Your goals and dreams are first, no matter what. You wanna make an app, start spending just a few minutes to a few hours on it. Spend the majority of your time perfecting that app. Build your schedule around that app. Make time for work, postpone your friends, quit TV, make time for working out, eating, etc. Bill Gates spent hours on hours building what we know of as Windows and Microsoft today. He didn’t get it out there by making excuses and trying to fit it into his life. It became his life.
3. Analyze what’s happening & why
There is a root to why your lazy, and why you keep putting it off. Get to the bottom of it and learn to make the needed changes. For me, building platforms takes an incredible amount of focus and time. But there are many projects an I still hadn’t released when I started them over 5 years ago. Projects I’m scrambling to get done to this day. I’ll be honest with you. It takes me about a month to two tops to get the website, mobile, and app complete. So why did it take me so long? I procrastinated, I ran into a few errors I knew I needed to fix, study and research to move forward. This along with a few other things stopped me into the present day.
I could have made a list of every issue, every language I needed to master, the correct software and requirements but I didn’t. There were ways to find a solution but I postponed and postponed, distracted myself with other projects convincing myself that this couldn’t be done without something else. It took me years later after endless BS to finally looking at everything in detail thousands of lines of code, all my errors, etc. to find a solution. I did. And it took me a matter of hours ironically to get it back up and moving forward again. It pains me that so many years have passed but I forced myself to comb through every detail to get myself back on task. It was all mental all in my head that prevented me. So look hard at your task and understand why you put it off, don’t be me don’t spend years.
4. Set short, mid & long term goals
This is something I swear by and has helped me tremendously throughout life. No matter what, buying another car, computer, building software, learning a new skill, you name it. I set goals, but not just any goals, very detailed goals for my bigger goals. For instance, I was building a web app. So I used an app called Google Keep which is my favorite note-taking app. I made a long term goal of creating a web app. Then I made short term goals after defining what the project is, and what’s it going to be used for and about. I wrote out every detail I needed to get this project up and running down to the detail of the buttons. The short term goals were to get a page completed design functionality, then populated, then finally functional. When all those where completed that made a mid-term goal, all leading up to the project full completion. Afterward, there were more minor goals added to get it fully running. Like debugging each page lines of code, sever cost, marketing, etc. Laying out the goals truly helped me see and visualize each step and minor steps with ease.
Things are a lot easier when you have smaller steps to reach a larger goal. Whatever your goals or task may be, breakdown the steps to reach that goal. Like my tiny example above.
5. Make a to-do-list
Similar to goal setting; a to-do-list is another must. Another cause of procrastinating is that you may be overwhelmed. You may be the type that pile so much on your plate you don't know where to start and you also may feel there's no way to get all this done. That’s understandable. Try making a list of every task you have to get completed. Over time the level of importance and what needs to be done first. Don’t worry if the things that need to get done first are the most complex. Similar to what we did above take that one task from the list and write every step that needs to be taken to get that task completed. Then tackle the smaller task one by one into its completed
6. Take a break
Take a break you deserve it. Going in on a task for hours on in can be quite exhausting. By the break, I mean something short and relative to the task at hand. Something minor and brief. For instance, I work for hours at a time sometimes over 9+ hours writing code. The trick is to not make it a chore to get things done, but to enjoy it. I sometimes take a 30 minute to hour break per 4 hours. Studies show on average; a person should do every 40 – 120 minutes with a 10-minute break. For me, I’ll sometimes go out for a walk, do a quick workout. Or even start a movie or episode of a show I haven’t seen or have seen before. After an episode then I get back to my task. But remember me it’s per 4 hours of work. Remember to keep it relative. Whatever you enjoy try doing that during your break.
An advance method is doing the break or something fun during your task your completing. For me, since I have multiple monitors, I would have a movie-going or some YouTube happening on another monitor. This is ultra tricky so I recommend what I listed above before attempting this. It takes an incredible amount of focus to stay committed to the task at hand while a distraction is happening. However, if you master this eventually you can be learning a new trait or skill i.e. Udemy while completing your current one. I'll go more in-depth on this in another article.
7. Be Realistic, stop worrying
Be very realistic, this is extremely important. Don’t try to cram a task you know will take a long time into an extremely short amount of time. This was a big mistake of mine. I would set crazy unrealistic goals for myself. I’d try everything in my power to get it done however almost always I fall short. Not until I started breaking down every task into the smallest possible short term goals; I was able to succeed. In all honesty making, impossible goals can be a good thing as well.
For me when I cram the impossible in a short time frame. I noticed I’d get a lot more accomplished than I normally would. I’d often ask myself if I was able to get this much accomplished in a fraction of the time. Why did it take me so much longer before? I would rarely ever complete the full project but I would accomplish double the amount of work needed. So this became an ongoing theme of mine. I’d set crazy dates with so much on my plate; knowing I wouldn’t finish it all so that I can get more done. I still do this to this day. I never give myself too much wiggle room for release and completion dates which can be seen on aviyon.net now.
Find what works for you. If stress is an ongoing theme with you I recommend not setting impossible dates. This takes an extreme amount of discipline, and work ethic especially when the ongoing theme is to push back dates. You have to know and understand why you set these dates in the first place. Almost tricking yourself and challenging yourself each time. Again there's nothing wrong with being in the realm of realism with your goals. It helps keep you sane. As you get better at completing a task; challenge yourself.
8. Set dates create deadlines
I touched on this above but making deadlines is crucial. Making goals and writing tasks on the to-do-list is great. But nearly useless without a completion date. To help fight against procrastination force yourself into making that deadline. For example, someone may enroll in a competition knowing there not prepared, just to force themselves to prep hardcore for that goal. Take a similar approach. You wanna learn animation, plan a project involving animation.
With this method you now have a much stronger reason to complete the task at hand, to learn animation. You're taking those skills and immediately applying it. Now you're less likely to put it off knowing you have a date to release your project
9. Make it known to everyone
This is my favorite because of its made public. On Facebook, aviyon.net and very recently on this platform I make my deadlines known to everyone. Even if no one likes my post or even sees it I couldn’t care less. I'm not bragging, trying to put others down, get likes. I’m simply making my deadlines public to further drive myself into completing that goal. Knowing that people out there know I set a goal to get an ambitious project completed. Forces me to go above and beyond to make sure my work is near perfect.
10. Reward yourself
You did it you completed a Midterm goal, You even completed a long term goal. Take the opportunity to reward yourself. Just don’t go overboard. For me whenever I make a substantial amount of progress I reward myself with a pizza or veggie burger. Sometimes I may go and grab myself a shirt but in some way, I reward myself and make it a mission to not get any of my wants until I deserve it. I’ve haven’t taken a vacation in some time. I can’t even remember the last time. I plan on taking a vacation after I release 8 extremely profitable projects. Then once I take my company public I have something in mind for that as well.
Find what you like and go for it after you make a stride. I don’t reward myself for short term goals. Only for Mid and long term goals. Use my approach and save the awesome rewards for long term goal completion.
11. Aim for perfection…but,
I always aim for perfection but I’ve learned to compromise and become a bit more realistic. Perfection is very difficult. Software development, in general, isn’t perfect initially. Remember Windows back in the 90’s it was a headache. When the initial release happened for Windows 98 I’m sure the program worked perfectly or at least quite close. However as it was placed in real-world environments it shows what was missed, what manifested, and what needed to be improved. No matter what you do or how many team members you have working on the task perfection is a distant dream.
After many years of updates and revisions, Windows has gotten much better. The developers and Engineers had a date and they aimed as close as possible for perfection to meet that date. It took me years to find out fully just how good of a practice this was. For me, I’d always aim for perfection somehow convincing myself and overlooking the fact that the greatest web apps, software, etc never started perfectly. Early editions Facebook was rushed and riddled with errors just like Windows. But they knew they would improve the project over time with help.
A part of the 5 years that kept me from releasing my work was the aim for perfection and error-free work. If perfection was my goal I would have never been able to release anything. Id always finds something that needs improving. If its functional release it. Then improve it as time goes by. I still hit the release date doing this and I can improve much more efficiently with user feedback and real-world testing. So it's okay not having perfect work, it will get better. Stick to the dates and do your best to get it as close to perfection as possible.
These are all the methods I have in my arsenal that has helped me accomplish the impossible. I know you can apply these steps to what you're working on. Read each step carefully, and remember everyone has 24 hours some just choose to spend it differently than others.
This will come as a shock to most, but believe it or not, the friends in your life are the main reason why your nowhere in life.
Ill some this up in 5 simple reasons
1. Your friends are broke and miserable.
It’s very difficult to be successful in life when the friends in your circle are all in the same situation. I get it you’ve known them for a very long time. You do everything together. But still, let’s take a look at their life. They're working a job they love or hate. Useless or no degrees, they stopped learning at High School. Mediocre savings, One source of income. No active investments, no dreams, and goals but of moving up a ladder. Their dreams are all job and relationship-based. They gossip about everyone. Hell, they may even secretly like you; and will convince you of why you shouldn’t go with anyone or do anything. They’ll tell you whatever just to keep you dependent on them and their advice.
They got nothing going on, absolutely nothing.
2. You listen to your friend's advice
If you have a dream of becoming successful in life. Perhaps you may want to open an online business. So you start planning to do the research. Allocating money needed to get it done. The ball is moving your friends are noticing seeing you less and less. You bring up your dream to them asking for advice. With no surprise they arent to accepting. They may laugh. Tell you someone already has that idea. It’ll fail. It’s going to be hard. You’ll hear it all from the ones you believe are your friends.
If someone has that idea or already doing it. That’s not a reason why you shouldn’t do it those are all reasons, and proven strategies of why you should do it. There's no one brand of cookies, no one model of car no one brand of socks… There are dozens of business all essentially doing the same thing coke and Pepsi both makes drinks hell there are hundreds of other businesses selling drinks.
Never listen to someone less successful or in the same position as you. Youll notice the same theme. That goes mutual for your girl or man your friends and even family. Sometimes you gotta go for it take a risk. Just do a good amount of research and plan truly.
3. You believe your friends are in your best interest
Honestly, most friends like your misery because there miserable themselves. Misery love company. This may be a tough one, but some friends are out for themselves. They talk to you just so they can talk about you. They’ll motivate you but tear you down more. If you go pretty far as into reaching your goals you’ll notice they’ll drop out of your life. Some may return only to benefit from what you accomplished. Then they're gone without a trace, or a thank you., however, they’re extremely happy to have made money off of you talking about how they did it all themselves.
4. You cant think for yourself
I see this time and time again. People just can’t think for themselves. These are honestly the ones you hear saying that there trying to find themselves. You know the ones hoping from major to major unsure of there own talents. Checkered goals and unfulfilled dreams that were suggested by their broke miserable friends. Settled with a degree that turned out to not be for them. Now there a Supervisor at Starbucks or wherever.
Honestly don’t let time past you by listening to your friends. You got to make shit happen. Don't be a sheep. Don’t be that individual who needs guidance on every f-ing detail of there life. You’ll never accomplish a damn thing in your life. Some friends have their agenda and just wanna keep you on their level. I honestly believe if this is you; you don’t know how your voice sounds like. You don’t know your own identity, talents or anything. Everything about you is a collection of every person you kept close to your life. No wonder why your miserable, your not you. No one in life can make you happy, that goes for anyone. This is something only your passion can accomplish.
Separate yourself from everyone. Once I got rid of my “friends” I truly became happy. I got to know myself and I understood that even though I shared similarities I’m vastly different. I finally heard how my voice sounded, it was very unique. I reflected on almost every moment with my former “friends” and understood I had been a copy. A collection of all their motivations and personalities. This mostly benefited them, and I saw when I mentioned my dreams they’d laugh. So I followed them anyway.
5. They are financially incompetent
You wouldn't take financial advice from a homeless man so why take it from a friend who can’t even afford there own rent. Stop taking financial advice from persons who are in the same or worse situation than you. The smart ones will seek advice from the leader of the pack. If I wanted to learn to code I want to learn it from the best books and learning material out. The same goes for trading & investing. Absorb the information from those who started from a similar situation and are now at the top. The advice of this caliber especially financial advice should be from those who are in a position of extreme excellence.
In some cases, the ones you want to learn from may be out of your reach. For instance when I wanted to learn day trading and true money-making skills. I had a few friends I met online who were doing decent. But I was smart and wanted to learn from the best. I knew the chance of meeting them was near impossible and I also knew if I did they’d be unlikely to take time out of their busy lives to help a fan. So I studied every interview they appeared on. All their books, all their videos, their platforms, content videos, programs, YouTube... I learned from every free and paid material I could find. After all, if you wanted to become the best basketball player you wouldn’t learn from your friend or the best player at school. You’d learn from Micheal Jordan, and Lebron James, to name a few. This goes for any skill or dream you want to be the best at. Learn from the greatest, not your friends.
