Alex Baldwin parody has some advice for you >>73998985

I'm gonna word vomit a few things here:
"A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance." - Hunter S Thompson

Small progress towards a goal is better than no-progress. Never give up. And if you have lost momentum, you're still closer than you were if you never tried at all.

"...every day do as many things as you possibly can to reach that goal. But make sure that goal is set so high, that if you reach one-tenth of the goal, you've gone a long ways. Fantasize and believe that you could star in a 100 Oscar-winning movies, and just work for that every day" - Vincent Gallo

Visualize what you most desire in life, if it's a yacht, don't just picture the yacht, imagine your hands on the helm, looking over a perfectly azure day on the Med, imagine the feeling of that hand crafted helm between your palms, the feeling of the salty air on your face.

If it's an Oscar, imagine the Oscar, feel it in your hands, imagine it's weight, then imagine as you look over the lectern at all your favorite Hollywood heroes, the glitterati standing applauding you, their faces filled with joy and relief because they all know you earned it.

Picture it so vividly, and in a way you can recall instantly, because that's the image you're going to go to when you CBF or you feel like giving up -- and that's gonna give you the gusto to keep moving.

Oh and HOW TERRIBLE WILL YOUR LIFE BE IF YOU DON'T SUCCEED. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL!

n energetic young business man meets a guru one day while walking along the beach. It's the same guru so many have told him about. Apparently, this guru is the wisest and most thoughtful person in the world, but usually inaccessible. Knowing how to interpret fate, the young man asks the guru a question:
"What must I do to be successful?"

The guru glances at him in that zen, guru-like way and says he'll share with him how to be successful tomorrow morning at 4 a.m. at this same beach.

The next day, the man shows up, nicely dressed and finds the guru near the shoreline. He asks the guru the same question. The guru responds by asking the young man to follow him out into the water. The man is confused at first, but figures the guru must know what he's doing, so the two wade into the ocean together.

The guru turns and says, "Let's keep going." So, they walk in until the water is up to their knees, then their waists, then their chests. The man, suit soaked, now asks, "Guru! What does this have to do with success?"

"Do you want to be successful?" the guru asks.

"Yes! Of course I do," the man replies.

Just then, the guru dunks him under the water. The young man fights to get back above water, but in addition to being wise, the guru is also strong. After about 15 seconds, the guru lets him back up. Confused and infuriated, the young man rails, "What was that?Immediately, the guru pushes him under and holds him down again. After about 15 seconds, he lets him up.

The man is irate now. "What are you doing? I asked you how to be successful and you're trying to drown me!"

The guru calmly replies, "Do you want to be successful?"

Frustrated, the man looks at him and says, "Yes, I want to -"

Before he can finish, the guru dunks him a third down, holding him down longer than before. He finally lets him up. The man is gasping for air now, trying to regain his bearings.

The guru states, "Until you want success as badly as you wanted air just now, you will never achieve it."

Over a period of 10 years through the 90's to early 2000's, 90% of people who were in the lowest tax bracket at the beginning had moved up by at least one bracket by the end, and 21% had ended up in the highest tax bracket.

70% of rich (worth more than $3m) families lose their wealth by the second generation and 90% by the third generation.

"Rich stay rich and poor stay poor" isn't entirely accurate.

@cum2soon
And to compound on the low income earners moving up in tax brackets point, wouldn't it be better not to increase the minimum wage? Seeing as for most people it's only a starting point. Where young people and people entering or re-entering the job market build experience before almost all of them move on to better jobs and higher wages. So wouldn't it be better to leave the minimum wage where more of these people can be employed at lower cost to the employer to get more people into the work force to build their skills and work experience?

It amazes me how many pathetic beta schlubs think money will make them more attractive to women. Women are attracted to attractive men. That means men who are physically good looking and alpha. Bill Gates and Zuckerberg are rich as fuck but the only attractive women they are going to get are prostitutes and gold diggers, because they are weird looking betas. There are plenty of rich guys who are also true alphas (any number of actors and musicians) but it certainly isn't a prerequisite. What other men respect is not what women respect. A guy can be a total failure in the eyes of other men but still be a natural alpha.

@cum2soon
70% of rich (worth more than $3m) families lose their wealth by the second generation and 90% by the third generation.
That is what happened to my family.

Want to hear a sad story?
My Great Grandfather made millions in the property business. 50 years ago, my Grandfather inherited most of it.
No male heirs, bad gambling habit, and four mistresses later, all the money is gone.

Only the old family estate remains - big house and lots of acreage, in a desirable area. Its worth quite a bit.

I've told that part of the story on this board before, but never shared this part with anyone - here on in real life:

I'm the oldest male heir. I want to start the business back up again.
We could definitely do it if we were to sell or mortgage the villa, but its not up to me.
My Mother won't even hear of it. Basically her response is "everything will be yours when I'm dead. You can do what you want then"

One major unexpected expense and we are ruined. We can barely keep up with the property taxes, which are over 30,000 a year. I have to work two shit jobs back to back.
Tending to the maintenance of the house and the grounds is a job in itself, but my younger Brother helps.

By the time my Mother dies 30 years from now (rough estimate), I'll be almost 60 fucking years old, or more.
I won't even have enough money to bury her, let alone pay the estate tax. The result is the Government will seize the house.

I've grown to detest her over the years, and can barely look at her anymore. But I can't abandon my Brother and Sisters to save myself.

Being poor out of necessity is one thing. But being wealthy, yet living in poverty due to ignorance and mismanagement is inexcusable.
I've tried to start my own business from the bottom up but I don't have to time to think or act on it, and I can't quit my jobs.
Knowing that I could make in two years what would take me otherwise a lifetime is a feeling I can't shake anymore.

I don't think I ever had a chance guys.

@Fuzzy_Logic
That sucks. Don't you wish your family would trust you to handle their finances?

My grandparents owned a retail store that was successful, then as they got older and refused to adapt, they ran it into the ground. The business stayed afloat for a while because they took out massive debt to keep the doors open. Now 10 years later, my grandmother has a negative net worth. We are trying to convince her to just walk away from her house but of course we just hear "but it's my home..." I love her to death of course, but really, this set our family back pretty hard.

muh labor theory of value
but here's the twist!
exploitation
kek fucking no. He was a fag. Here's the story:
Adam Smith: labor theory of value
but eventually abandoned it
Along comes David Ricardo
"kek Smith, you're dumb bro labor theory of value is real"
but then Ricardo abandons it because his international trade theory developed
then comes Marx
"kek you both are wrong labor theory of value is real and the surplus is taken by muh capitalists and that surplus is derived from the exploited workers!"
"my international trade theories that let Ricardo to abandon labor theory of value as well? oh i never developed that because im too busy sucking Engel's cock and asking my dead wife's family for money"
He literally is a shit economist and NO ONE takes him seriously in the world of modern macro. Political economy isn't even a thing anymore except with fringe left wing university professors.

And everyone knows political """""""science"""""" people are too stupid to even understand Marx's economic theories anyways. They probably think surplus is like an excess amount of goods or something kek

It also didn't define how people thought of classes either. Ricardo and Malthus were long debating capitalist vs rentier long before that fat faggot Marx came around, as did many other political economists before them.

why shouldn't you read it
First of all because in its entirety its like 2000 pages

second reason:
his economic theories are bunk and we live in a post keynesian/MMT world

third reason
anyone who has ever tried communism has failed miserably or turned their country into a murderous hellhole

And distribution of wealth? It didn't change shit. As previously stated about Ricardo and Malthus, they were constantly debating who should get the surplus at the end of the day. And BOTH were right in the fact that the peasent wagecuck shouldn't get any of it.

I'm glad you recognize how faggot-tier labor theory of value is though

Instead of trying to pull apart a book which your advocating not reading which you shouldn't be doing unless you've read it, which means you have read it which is why you have the authority to pull it apart, unless you didn't which means you didn't read it and don't know what you're talking about.

Okay, if you haven't read all 1000 pages of the Wealth of Nations, never speak again. If you haven't read all eleven volumes of David Ricardos work compiled by Sraffa (a guy who pretty much dedicated his life JUST to the work of Ricardo) then you can't speak of Ricardo. That's ludicrous man.Knowledge accumulates over time, more than any one person can ever and will understand, hence why we specialize in things. I've read enough development of economic thought books to know my stuff. Hell, some development of economic thought books push 1000 pages anyways and contain a hell of a lot more info.

@hairygrape
It's pretty much the theoretical "value added" at the end of the day. Similar to profit, but not quite. Profit is quantifiable and doesn't necessarily reflect all that went into producing a good (for example the labor it took to produce it which is why Marx was always so butthurt). The end goal is to figure out the "real price" of something, which, arguably is near impossible.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_value_(economics)
Here's a list.

Think of this: I have a good that took $1,000 in production costs to make. I sold it to some fool for $10,000 dollars because he thinks its a holy relic from a religion he made up in his back yard. My profit is $9,000. The surplus is different. Some would go to a landlord in the form of rent (this is traditionally where surplus went historically and which Ricardo argued against and Malthus argued for) and some to the gov in taxes. Oh, did I mention I used slave labor to make my product? So my production costs don't actually take into account the labor that it took to produce my good. Even if I paid everyone $1/hr it still doesn't. It's hard to quantify. And the fool who bought my product purely bought based upon his own personal use-value (utility) which, just because I made a huge profit, doesn't necessarily reflect my good's "real" price. The point I'm trying to make is my surplus way smaller than my profit.

That sucks massive dick, I'm sorry user. Even though you'd be a massive shithead if you were wealthy from the start and I'd hate you, squandered opportunity is even more detestable.

In a similar vein, I've gotten fucked twice, now going on three times.

Back in the 40s, 50s? A great (or great-great) grandpa in Ohio was a multi-millionaire real estate owner/landlord. He had a brother in office and simply didn't pay taxes for however many years. As soon as the brother lost the reelection, the IRS came after him and he lost everything. He owed *millions* of dollars. He would rather have all of nothing, than half of multiple millions of dollars. Fucking idiot.

Grandfather in the southwest became president of the only gravel/cement supplier in a town, one of the largest in his state. He was earning $200,000 a year in the 60s. His estate should have been worth *tens* of millions of dollars by now. Nope. How much is it worth now? Stocks and bonds around $600k, real estate I'm guessing another $750k, various other assets another couple hundred. The estate should be 10, 20 million dollars but it's less than 2 because of shit management, stock picking, and giving away (literally) millions of dollars to stupid bullshit like irresponsible children and mistresses. And no, he was not banging models, he was a broken alcoholic for the last 20 years of his life. Refused help. Refused to change. Split between three heirs each family will end up with around half a million. Better than nothing but hardly a drop in the bucket.

And now, my dad. He's been picking stocks because he thinks he can beat the market. He happened to get lucky with one bet, and now has hundreds of thousands of dollars being gambled on a handful of companies. Has multiple vehicles, all expensive, all huge and/or terrible mileage, high maintenance, doesn't take care of shit. My mom buys all the random stupid shit she wants, yet still complains about money.

My family has fucked it up at every turn.

@WebTool
Oh he's dead. He was in and out of the hospital/skilled nursing for... probably the last 8-10 years of his life. I don't know how much medicare covered, but that was another couple hundred thousand out of the estate for his care because he refused to take care of himself. Just like my dad, who's probably gonna die before he's 65 because he's either delusional or just doesn't give a shit.

I've seen my family make so many fucking mistakes it disgusts me. I promised myself a long time ago I would make *none* of the same mistakes they did.

Some questions:

how can I improve my rate of 44:1 ?

Do I get business cards ? a shirt ? How do I make an effective brand ?

I live in an area that's decently affluent with bigger houses that's close to a university. I got some clients by saying I was a business student (lol I'm not though just a /biz/raeli)

All these histories of rich people becoming poor due to stupidity
mfw my grandfather became a millionaire from nothing, having to provide for his 1 and 3 year old brothers and mother after his dad died when he was 17
my father became a doctor after shining shoes for pennies during teenage years and part timing construction work
my mother was really poor, quit school at 15 to help raise her 8 other siblings and put them through college
all of this made my family extremely humble, not valuing material things, mother never cared for luxury and dad invests every penny he can to give me a better life than he had
MFW i'm an entitled little shit that will probably be the turning point and waste everything

How the fuck do i stop procrastinating, god fucking dammit

if this is true, I from the bottom of my heart feel bad for you. I'm experiencing the same thing on a smaller scale. my grand father is worth 1.6million dollars after investing in CDs from the 40s and my dad and aunts are all banking on this inheritance and spending money frivolously. I got got lucky with a job that paid 70k+ a year at age 20 after dropping out of college, and got sucked into that lifestyle. and thank god i got that job. After learning about investing and that I would receive nothing from my parents I went for management position and got it. at a conservative rate ill have what my grandfather had at 48 to retire... 30 years later.

basically what im saying is your family will squander that money, but you inherited his genes so dont let them go to waste. Fuck your family and chase that money, if you cant sell the estate to do that let them rot and dont support them. I can gaurantee you grandfather would say the same. your forcing your own fate.

Explain?

Because if a chick is an asshole or a gold-digger, like that's going to show, she'll slip up in-between the constant flirting or stuff. You'll see when she's uncomfortable about something that any "decent" person wouldn't be.
She won't say thank you when someone hands her what she's picked up. She won't be considerate about other people in line.

She won't clean up her own mess.

She'll act like an entitled piece of shit. She'll be lazy.

You're telling me that you can't see that, even if it's just moments?

If you have have money in the bank and everyone knows it, you will not be able to discern whether or not the bitch in question is more into you or your provision potential. She can swear up and down it's you, but you won't know.

Whereas if you keep your power level hidden, it's easier to determine.what her motives are since your finances aren't even known to her.

People can exhibit basic common courtesy and still fuck you over, son.

But if they don't because they're a selfish golddigging whore, or if they are only courteous to you and no-one else, then you can tell that she's poison.

The only thing I can think of is you get blinded by the sex and start self-rationalizing that she's a asshole to other people but not to you. Try to convince yourself she doesn't care about your money.

Then you've got no hope.

Whereas if you keep your power level hidden, it's easier to determine.what her motives are since your finances aren't even known to her.

The only thing out of the ordinary about the girl who wrote this is she is thinking about her thought process conciously; which is impressive for a woman.

Most women act like this, not think like this. Which is even scarier to me.

Have you ever asked a woman why she has broken up with a man? Very few actually know. Sure they'll list out a number of petty reasons or even make one up on the spot. The real reasons are he isn't rich enough, handsom enough, or tolerating her bullshit enough.

That's where you're wrong, my friend. Women *hate* it when you tolerate their bullshit. Barring a small minority of exceptions, women want to have to work to keep you around. Your leaving them needs to be a perpetual threat and your finding a replacement who is younger and prettier than her needs to be a constant possibility.

Now that I think about it what you said before that, though, I do agree. Most women view men as a simple buffet and they just want the best one.
