The $1 problem

I see these kids wanting to be rich, but to be frank I got to state the obvious.

If you can’t earn $1 – you can’t earn $1 000 000, which makes most people simply incompetent to earn this kind of money.

Me included because if I was competent. I would be rich already.

I play the game in the field to win, but winning really takes a lot of work which is simply fruitless.

Back in the day I used to make money but now I just can’t understand what happened to my knowledge. I guess the market and the circumstances have changed.

When people around you get poorer, you then get poorer.

If you want to make $1 000 000, you have to be in a market which has this kind of money, because if the market is empty, you won’t make that money despite your efforts.

It’s the market that gives us money and if the market is poor then there simply is no money in it.

We all know what we need to do

I know I was going to be a blogger since the blogging start, but I always hesitated to start due to some lack of knowledge – I knew what I need to do to become successful and thriving, but I didn’t do it.

I spend maybe 10 years experimenting and my life is full of trial and error.

Sometimes what you do gets counterproductive – you don’t want that.

I tried vlogs, blogs, music making and anything I could do with a computer, nothing worked.

But I was good at article writing, I knew I needed to start a blog. I just didn’t.

I know my blog is going to be a failure, but at least I’ve started it, so I’m kind of ahead those who don’t start.

My doubt dragged me for a long time. I kept stalling and waiting for the perfect circumstances, but those didn’t come.

I knew since I was little. I’m going to make a business. I just didn’t knew what kind of business.

I deleted my youtube many times and started over and over.

I know you, I can relate to you, because being consistent is actually hard with all these distractions, but then again, if other people are making some cash out of producing content via web. So maybe you can too? Think about it. You know what you need to do.

It’s just a matter of doing, not stalling and doubting.

Audio002 – How do you know when you have no competence?

 

Just me talking about competence and how to realize that you have no competence if you were jumping from one idea to another recently.

It’s not the idea that matters, but the competence to execute and accomplish the idea.

How to survive as a Social Outcast

No matter what the social outcast does, he will always be an outcast.

Unless you’re good looking, rich or famous – well not, if you’re an outcast.

Outcasts don’t fit into the norms of the heard.

The heard has it’s own standards, norms and other cliche things. Being in a heard is never an option and besides heards are dangerous.

I don’t want to write a long post about what it means to be an outcast just because every outcast knows that being one is simply loneliness – you’re never accepted.

You can do whatever you want, write books, poetry, whatever man – you will never fit in, unless you will be shoving garbage in your face on a live stream to impress people.

You know what, fuck those people, they’re the heard and you’re not.

It’s so obvious so instead of fitting in, try to contemplate a skill or a craft, not because you could show off, but because you would have something to do in your lonely “miserable” life.

Being in misery is somewhat special. You then see the real world, the world of not so luxurious. When you have nothing you see people as they are.

And they are shit. To be frank.

Now that I’ve insulted the heard, nobody will buy my stuff, poor me.

It can happen, but it probably won’t

In today’s age everyone loves the lies, the lies about money and life and etc.

The world promised us that we will be rich and famous and working hell of a lot less.

I’m going to admit – I won’t change your life, you are the one who has to do the change.

But sometimes people just get stuck in their own head.

If you committed to making money online then stick to it – don’t go wandering around.

Imagine every idea you have is a nail then you have to hammer every single nail of yours.

Some people say that doing the same thing over and over leads to insanity but then again, you build a beautiful castle brick by brick.

Post by post leads to your “castle”, it can happen but it probably won’t unless it’s built.

On the other side

Whenever someone is looking for happiness, like the fairy tale tells it’s on the other side.

Doesn’t matter what are you looking in this world – it’s always on the other side.

There’s status quo that you need to pursue something, achieve something and everybody out there is to guide you or to tell you that you suck and your knowledge is poor.

Due to society’s expectations – you are never good enough.

And when you are never good enough – you want to get to the other side.

But you can’t if there is no bridge.

So it’s better to be on your own side than to go to sides which you can never go to.

Sure a man should strive for something but then again – strivings of a modern western man are just ridiculous.

Trusting yourself – why it’s so special?

Let’s admit one thing.

If you can’t trust yourself – why anyone else should trust you?

Trusting your own gut is in some people, other people don’t trust themselves, we know this due to big demand in psychology and depression and etc. I’m not a specialist in psychology, but I know one or few things.

Don’t let other people’s opinions shape your behavior, in general my blog is for individuals or people who want to become the best within their capabilities.

I don’t write fluff or bullshit that’s common in other websites.

I trust myself, do you?

If you don’t trust yourself, think about it this way: what can I give to other people? Can I carve a new way of life even though nobody trusts me?

Being trusted is really rare, when everybody wants to scam everybody. So one has to be transparent and vulnerable as much as possible because this builds up strength and trust.

Many people which I know, don’t trust themselves and think they are worthless, sure some are young and some are old. Old people have experience, but don’t have time, young people don’t have experience but have time. So it’s a fair trade off.

If you had some harsh times in your life, you have a lot of undiscovered strength within you, but you level up by doing hard things. It may be will building, patience building, or any other building that you think suits you and your personality.

Remember, that there isn’t a single individual who knows more about you than you.

Nobody knows how you should live, I’m sure not the one who can give you a life goal.

If you have some strengths, work on them. Forget for a moment about your weaknessess.

Just because there is no time to think about weakness, because when you have a strong side – you are way above others in that field and you’re just slightly of from life you want to have.

Sure it can take many years to build that life, but you’d better try to do it. If not – you’re going to be in the same exact spot for the rest of your life.

Sometimes you just have to bruteforce things to your advantage.

If it’s hard, to it more, so you got used to it.

Doing the hard things gives you strength – think about that and execute, because one’s ideas without work are useless and worthless.

Selling Time vs Selling Products

Imagine you have one month of time with which you can do whatever you want.

What would you do?

Would you build something? Or would help someone else build something?

Many people choose to help others build something due to fast financial reward.

You go to work and sell your time, but then again – you don’t have any time left.

Or you can choose to build something over a period of month which later you can sell and sell and sell.

I never understood why people sell their time instead of building something cool.

Building something of your own is very hard. But when you build it it remains built.

The Choice

Let’s illustrate a point:

It’s a popular video I just watched recently.

It visually shows how life is going to happen when you do what you do.

Everybody has a choice.

Big or small choices become habits and people consist of habits.

You just can’t be a man without habits.

The truth about the web and money

When I first started going and doing stuff online I wasn’t aware about one truth.

The web is working 24/7 and people surf the web to read stuff or to buy something.

Not that I’m saying you’re going to buy something from me, but bare with me.

Money is always circulating wherever online or offline. People always buy things, even people without big streams of money – they all buy stuff.

So your duty is to provide a solution to a certain problem.

The more problems you solve – the more money you get.

Essentially a blog is to market yourself, doesn’t matter what you have to offer.

If people find your blog useful – you are going to make money even if you don’t want it.

It’s hard to build trust and respect, but when you build it – you can make a fart video, your reputation isn’t going to go anywhere.

When I was experimenting with online video – I made some serious vlogs on philosophy and the matrix and made some dumbed down jokes and fart videos. And I noticed people share fart videos instead of my philosophy.

I can make a point which is also a fact – people don’t like serious stuff, they want farts, but when people watch farts – they have farts in their heads which makes them not a smart bunch of people.

People on facebook consume whatever you give them. They’re always looking for new stuff – good or bad, doesn’t matter as long as it keeps them laughing.

So if you want to be in a good position later in life – you got to create something that is worthwhile despite the views. Views, likes, shares are great, but they won’t make you money.

I spent a lot of time building my tribe on facebook, but then facebook started banning me. So I had to quit. Sure I didn’t have a massive following, but I saw one major thing – you don’t want to build your tribe on some other website which can ban you anyday you disobey the policy, so I started my blog and I’m doing everything again, I got a lot of facebook bans and youtube strikes, so I didn’t had any choice but to built my own website.

Actually I don’t know how long it will take to build up, maybe never if I take seriously what other people are saying, but I can bet one thing – your platform, if you build it, will make you known and expand your social circle – it’s the least it can do.

If I’m lucky, or if you’re lucky – you will bank some profit.

The most valuable thing in today’s society is the human attention – where’s the attention – there’s the money.

You don’t need a massive following, you need just some.

I know you can do it, I can do it too.
