success is a video game, and we all lost the game
Nah I’m gonna print this entire thread out and stick it on my bedroom door so I look at it everytime I leave the houseN1666 said:Yeah and then you will forget about it an hour later

Do you think that any Olympic medalist or business tycoon has indulged in your mentality on a long-term basis?
I feel the need to address each of your points individually:
10 years from now you will be an oldcel
with a traumatic childhood and resulting personality disorder
- There are a number of 50-60 year olds who are in shape, well dressed, respected socially, and financially stable. Enjoying life for multiple decades is a lifestyle choice.
failures you were destined to experience due to bad genes+environment.
- Once you become an adult, it is your responsibility to deal with whatever trauma you have been through. It saddens me that many (perhaps you included) have been party to consistently negative experiences throughout childhood. Tragic as it is, however, it is not viable to be 25, still crying that due to your parents'/society's treatment of you, you are living a low quality life.
You must embrace the pain and make the optimal play.
- I would urge you to view this as 'challenges you were destined to overcome'. As I have mentioned, not everyone is dealt an equal hand. However, making out as if you are a passive vehicle with no influence over your own reality is weak. It is acceptable for children to cry over hardships. As a man, it is not.

The R&G (randomness element) is brutal.
You might be born as a 1 PSL orphan in an underdeveloped, wartorn nation.
You might be born in NYC to two loving, wealthy parents, whose genetics afforded you 7 PSL and 120 IQ.
Whatever situation you find yourself in, divorce yourself from ego, and make the best play.
If I told you that, to win $10,000, you would have to play a simulator-style game and help a bottom 1% person achieve a top 1% life, you would do it.
You would instruct the character to:
- Eat healthily
- Work hard and make a lot of money
- Go the gym
- Push themselves out of their comfort zone (socially)
- Seek out new experiences
As soon as one is forced to actually engage in productive behaviours, laziness, procrastination and excuses appear.
Most people know what they need to do. But something stops them from doing it.
There are many factors - but one of the most significant is ego.
When you play a game as a pixellated character, there is no sense of entitlement. Simply a knowledge that certain steps must be taken to achieve certain outcomes.
And yet, in real life (especially here) I see a mentality of unparalleled weakness (ironically, from those users who try and appear the most strong - by shitting on others who are trying to improve themselves and make positive contributions).
They make comments such as:
Ok. All of these comments might be true. So what?
- 'No gym for your face'
- 'Chad doesn't read'
- '7 years in medical school, meanwhile Meeks gets signed off of a mugshot'
Scathing comments such as these are really a symptom of someone who wants to make excuses for their lack of success in life. No matter what your current situation is, someone in a worse position has risen to great success and happiness.
This is not an attack on users who feel this way. I am trying to lead you to a better paradigm.
As I mentioned earlier, you must divorce yourself entirely from ego.
Religious values are deteriorating. We are returning to the state of the uncaring hypergamy that saw 17 women procreate for every one man at the start of the agricultural revolution. You must be better than ever to achieve above-average outcomes.
The first stage of this is accepting where you are. Acknowledge that you are not entitled to shit, that no-one (not even your parents) cares about your outcomes more than you do.
Every day, you make thousands of micro-decisions that dictate what kind of future you will have. When you walk into an exam, the outcome is pretty much settled; it is a result of your behaviour for the weeks, months and years leading up to that moment.

Every time you make a choice that you logically know is wrong (that you would not tell your video-game character to make), remember that your competition is doing the opposite.
Those decisions have compounding effects over time. You and one of your competition might start in the same place (let's say slightly below average in every respect, for argument's sake).
In 10 years:
- Is gymmaxxed, with an above average girlfriend
- Is making $100k per year (achievable for anyone with an average IQ)
- Has a decent social circle, and fills his weekends with sports, games nights and educational events
- Is happy
- Are sitting in your parents' basement.
You stumble across a post that reads 'rate my normie friend's life transformation'.
You write 'Cope, he put in all this effort, yet Chad doesn't have to lift a finger for better outcomes'.
You are right.
Your life is also significantly worse than his.
Winning beats being 'right' every single time.
