Don’t get it twisted. You are about to embark on probably the hardest thing you have ever done in your life. You want to know something raw that most people will never tell you? Most people don’t belong here. Most people don’t have what it takes to build a baller lifestyle. Want proof? Look around. There is a reason why you don’t see Ferraris everyone and mansions on every street corner. That takes hard work and serious commitment. Most people don’t have it.
I’m not being negative here. I’m being real. This lifestyle is for the chosen few who have what it takes to hustle it out every day and put themselves on the line for what they want. We are warriors and we are here to dominate. Think you are going to step it to me with your pretend work ethic? Prepare to die on the battlefield like the rest of the people who thought they could just hop on a bang wagon and go from rags to riches without putting in the countless hours.
If you are sitting around and trying to hype yourself to believe in taking action, you’re in the wrong place. This ain’t it. Go find a chess club and play with other people who aren’t in it to win it. Everyone looks at the rewards and thinks it’s awesome. That is the easy part. You know what is a lot harder? Taking steps to actually do something. That’s what defines a baller and makes the difference between someone who gets what they want in life and someone who doesn’t.
This isn’t kindergarten. You aren’t going to get a gold sticker with your name on it and a participation trophy. This is real life. There are winners and there are losers. If you aren’t willing to go 10 miles farther than the guy next to you every single day, then you aren’t cut out for this. That’s fine. There are plenty of ballers for you to intern under and work for that will use you to build up their own dreams and reach their own potential.
No disrespect though. I give mad props to people who work in jobs throughout everyday life. I worked in the restaurant business for a few years throughout high school and college (before I decided it was a waste of time). That was hard work. It takes a completely different, respectable work ethic to grind out that life every day to put food on the tables of those who depend on you. I salute that and don’t want to take away from you if that is your life.
However, this site is about going for it. This site is about dominating and living an alpha lifestyle. Chances are, if you are still reading this and haven’t exited the site yet, you have what it takes to be a winner. I know you can do it, because I used to be sitting exactly where you are now. Just know that you are going to have to really know why you are making the leap. This isn’t something you can just haphazardly think about and then do on the weekends. If you are serious about making money and building a business or side hustle, you can play around as much as you want. But there is going to come a time when you have to leave everything else on the table and go full in every day.
People have different reasons for going at this life. Maybe your first girlfriend or wife took advantage of you and now you want to be in a position where no one can ever treat you like that again. Maybe you witnessed your parents and the people around you work hard their entire life without ever getting ahead. Maybe you lost a loved one from a cause that was totally preventable, but that you just didn’t have the money for at the time.
Whatever it is that drives you, there has to be a reason. My biggest fear is ending up like the older people that I see with nothing in life. They are at the end of their road and have nothing. They barely have enough money to feed themselves and they live in sub-standard conditions. They did this to themselves because they decided to squander the amazing opportunity that they had. I refuse to ever end up like that. It is what drives me to work so hard every single day. I will stand for hard work so that later I can live a life of my own design, free from the stress of having to worry about how I will pay my bills.
Maybe all of these reasons resonated deeply with you. Maybe none of them did, or only one did. That’s fine. The point is that you are going to need to find that reason and keep it at the forefront of your mind at all times. It will provide the fuel to your fire that will keep you moving. It will be the light to guide you in your darkest moments when self-doubt begins to creep in and suggest that maybe you aren’t cut out for this life in the first place. It won’t matter though. You are a warrior and the manifestation of greatness. You are willing to suffer and persevere longer than everyone else. You will become king and everyone around you will beg for your guidance and approval. You will make it to the top.
