                      This wasn't motivational. It's infuriating.
                      This guy isn't even happy, he thinks money can buy him everything.

                              True, you have obese friends you will more likely be obese. Hang around with druggies and losers you will have nothing.

                                It’s true. You tell someone they have months to live, those who give up are dead before the 2-3 months. Yet those who push live longer. You have to push and never give up.

                                  He doesn’t give me the impression being very happy. We all need to be rich these days. You don’t hear people about happiness very often these days.

                                      Those who are nice, get know where. To be successful you have to destroy others. It’s tough running a company.

                                    So being sucessfull is making billions with no life but working. Ok great. I do 2k month with poker for 10 years..I can travel a lot and im always in holidays. Thats more successfull for me than being your own slave. Nobody will remember me or this guy less than 5 years after his death so who cares in the end?

                                      But poor people work 2-4 jobs a week, so what’s the difference?

                                    Sleeping in the office is not what will make you succeed crazy man. What will make you successful in life is how much efforts you put on achieving your goals. People nowadays are too lazy to work hard during the day (they go to work and keep themselves chatting on their phones or even on their Instagram).

                                          “What gets measured gets accomplished, without measurement you are just fooling yourself” this one cannot be overlooked, such a powerful statement 👌

                                              Just follow your passion and the money will come. But following your passion at the right time and place is an important aspect of it all. Jobs and Wozniak followed theirs at the perfect time in history. Same with Bill Gates. How many times have people failed with an idea just because the world wasn't ready for it.

                                                  Some good stuff, but is it really just about having a Rolls-Royce and a big house? I expected a better punch line.

                                                                                        There's a factory with 10,000 workers, 20 managers, 15 supervisors and 1 owner. Guess how many of those 10036 people will be really rich. No matter what you do, there's gonna be only one really rich one, a few who are doing OK, and 10,000 poor hardworking employees. And you can't do anything about that. All of them may dream about being rich but the math is ruthless. I guess stealing might help haha
