How To Stop Being Such A Loser

in blog •  8 months ago


Fucking Jesus Christ the Trending page makes me want to kill myself. Honestly, I feel like it's my responsibility to write something half decent just so 1/100 posts on there won't be terrible.

I only briefly want to touch on this as I've already gone over it in several posts. So let's recap:

To get your post on the Trending page:

  1. Write your shitty post
  2. Pay for upvotes at steembottracker
  3. Pay for a few resteems from various bots
  4. ???
  5. Profit

Sounds great, right? The cool thing is that you can even do this several days in a row to keep your page up there and rack up even more fake internet money.

That said, expect to pay around $100 SBD per day that you promote the post in order to have enough juice to pump it. If you want to pump each post for 3 days (the maximum allowable before @GrumpyCat rapes you with a downvote), then that's $300 SBD/week.

$300 SBD = $600 USD
$600 USD x 4 posts = $2400 per week

$2400 isn't bad to stay on the front page of a "major" social networking platform indefinitely.

I'm not saying you're a bozo, but... you're a bozo

What's that? You don't have $2400? What are you some kind of fucking loser or something?

Listen, I understand if you live in India and make like $2/day. I was just in Malaysia and saw junkies sleeping on the street. I don't think they've ever even watched porn on the internet, let alone used Steemit. THOSE guys don't have a fucking chance, sadly.

But if you're living in a Western country where you have the opportunity to go out and make big boy money, what the fuck is your problem? Shit, even if all you have is an iPhone, you have enough tech to run a scalable business. What's your excuse?

Oh wah wah I have a job and six kids and my mama has a bum leg... fuck your mama. You trying to make some money or you trying to make some excuses?

Nobody cares about your excuses, my brothers. I don't care WHAT you want to do in life - if you make the decision RIGHT NOW that you're going to do it, then you can. And don't come at me with that, "Well ACKSHULLY you CAN'T be an NBA player if you're not a seven foot tall black guy." Fuck off.

Anyway, I forgot my point... alright. So... what was my point again? Shit. Something about STEEM... oh right. Yeah so you need money.

Actually, what you REALLY should do is save like $10k and move to Thailand. Assuming you're single with no responsibilities like a mortgage or kids, that is. And if you have kids, I don't know what to tell you. You're fucked. Unless you're a woman. Then just get married. And if you're married... I dunno, just get divorced and take half his shit. THEN move to Thailand.

Fuck... I'm getting off topic again. Anyway, the point of this article is that despite their "wants," most people are too lazy to be champions.

His Majesty @YallaPapi, King Of The Bozos

Most people don't have $2400, either. And they DEFINITELY don't have it to spend on fake internet money. And if they do, it's as an "investment." Not so a bunch of upvote-hunting losers can skim their posts to leave low-effort comments, too dim to create anything of value.

Shit, most people don't even have $240. And hey, I wasn't always a baller who opts for the $6 shawarma instead of the $4 one. I used to be a loser too.

A few years ago I was living in LA, my hometown. Shitty place unless you're making $10k/month, and even then it's nothing to write home about. Yeah sure if you're from... I dunno.. Iowa or something where the weather sucks then yeah, Cali seems pretty good. And LA does have a lot of beautiful women.

But the traffic is terrible, rent is expensive, and it's actually very boring and overhyped.

Anyway, there I was, living in LA and being a loser. I was even a fucking UBER driver of all things. And not even one of the cool ones that have bottled water and candy in the backseat of their Lexus, the ones who will drive-thru Jack In The Box for you and let you use their aux cable. Fuck that. I was bitter, like a smelly taxi cab driver who says shit like, "In my cahntry, I was a doc-tehr!"

Driving for Uber in LA is terrible. You don't make any money and the traffic literally makes you want to kill yourself. My only salvation was my daily hour and fifteen minute yoga class at the Equinox in West LA. It was only there that my body and mind were at peace with the world long for enough for me to forget that I was a 33 year old NEET, driving for Uber and living on hardboiled eggs and oatmeal.

The Way Of The NEET

My day literally looked like this:

  1. Wake up
  2. Drive for Uber
  3. Go to yoga
  4. Come home and eat
  5. Play Dota
  6. Drive for Uber again
  7. Come home and eat
  8. Play more Dota
  9. Sleep

Yoga was literally the best part of my day. Any yoga addicts reading this will understand. Any yoga addicts who take classes at Equinox West LA with Maeve REALLY understand.

So many beautiful 40+ MILFS....

Jesus Christ this guy just walked in and he smells so fucking bad... Oh my god bro, wash your feet.

Anyway, lots of hotties over there. All doing yoga. And they loved me. I spent as much time as possible at that beautiful place. Because I knew that when I left, I'd have to go back into the real world - driving around a bunch of people who were rich enough to pay for Ubers and go to trendy bars and taco stands.

Meanwhile, I was so fucking broke and hated driving for Uber so much, that I tried to figure out the absolute minimum amount of money I had to make every month in order to survive. It was something like this:

Rent: $1500/month
Equinox: $220/month
Everything else: As little as possible

I was eating hardboiled eggs and oatmeal literally for every meal. I would buy Frank's Red Hot Sauce and eat it with everything, just so the food I was eating would have some flavor. My parents, who live in La Quinta, would come down and visit once a month to stay with me. While officially under the auspices of "wanting to get out of the desert," I think they just wanted to spoil me with real human food while allowing me to preserve my dignity.

So here I was, 33 years old, no friends, a depressed Uber-driving fuckboy with no prospects, motivation or goals. Sure I had ideas, things I wanted to do. I'd work on them for an hour or two and then give up. You know how it is.

I had given up on making anything out of my life. While I hated my day-to-day experience, I loved doing yoga at Equinox. I loved my yoga teachers and my friends at the gym. I didn't want to give that up, and if driving for Uber and eating 20 hardboiled eggs a day was the price I had to pay, then so be it.

I lived like this for over a year.

Get ready for some pimples baby, cuz I'm about to breakout

One upside to driving for Uber was that I had lots of time to listen to audio books while I was driving around. Since I had no money, I pirated everything from various torrent sites. I'd just go hit up the Pirate Bay, filter by audiobooks and download everything I could fit on my phone.

Listened to some great books on there. I must have listened to all of Nassim Taleb's books at least 20 times each while playing Dota.

After exhausting all the books I found interesting, one day I found myself stuck in traffic without anything to listen to. I'd already listened to all the good stuff, so I figured I'd give the last book on my phone a try: "Be Obsessed Or Be Average," by Grant Cardone.

I pressed play and immediately wanted to throw my phone out the window. I hated this guy's voice. He was too high energy for me, like one of those used car salesmen you'd see on TV. It was terrible. I turned it off after 30 seconds.

Time passed and once again I found myself in the car with nothing to listen to. I figured I'd give ol' Grant another try, but this time skipped the introduction.

The first chapter was actually tolerable. I could tell he was of these self-help guys who tries to get you hyped about life. The book starts with him telling his own story. I won't ruin it for you in case you ever decide to read it some day, but suffice to say he was also once a loser like you - and me - and he pulled himself out of it through sheer determination.

He had an engaging delivery so I kept listening. Then I heard the part that hooked me.

I don't remember the exact phrasing, but he said something like:

"Getting what you want takes a tremendous amount of work. If you're not obsessed with making it happen, it never will. You have to get so hyped that you work 15 hour days 7 days a week until it happens. And then when it happens, you need to upgrade your goal into something else that gets you hyped so you don't stagnate."

Something like that. He explains it much better than I can. It was so rare to hear someone say that obsession is a good thing, I was just kind of caught off guard. Especially coming from my 6-day a week yoga habit where they preached things like "balance" and "being happy with yourself the way you are."

I kept listening, drinking every drop of Kool Aid from the Grant Cardone Goblet Of Hype. Halfway through listening to the book I knew I had to make a change - and I knew exactly what I was going to do: I was moving back to Australia.

Now, that's a story for another time, and definitely too long for a single Steemit post. But the point is that listening to that book was what made me realize that there was no easy way to get what I wanted. If I wanted to make the big bucks, have a truly interesting life, and become an "important person," then I had to become obsessed with the outcome.

Welcome to Treasure Island, ya cunt

I set off on my mission to Australia two months later. While I was there, I made more money than I'd ever made in my life. I was smart enough to save, and that's why I can play around on this stupid platform. That's why I spend two hours typing up 2700 words of bullshit from a hostel in Phuket, sitting next to Mr. Stinky Feet, and pay for a bunch of internet strangers to read it for no reason other than my own vanity.

As someone who changes his city/country often, I can't emphasize the importance of a change in scenery for refreshing your motivation. In Hebrew we say, "meshane makom, meshane mazal."

Change your place, change your luck.

And it's true. You go to a new place, meet people who don't know you're a loser, and you get a chance to start fresh. You can invent whatever persona you want for yourself and people don't know any better, so they just believe you. Stay in your hometown and all your "friends" and family members will snatch your ass right back down to their level once they see you trying to escape your hell.

You look at successful people today and you say, "wow, they're so lucky." But you don't see the years of shit they had to eat to get to where they are.

If you saw me in the Israeli army being depressed, doing mindless tasks and questioning my life choices, would you have been jealous?

If you saw me in the middle of the mall trying to sell hair straighteners to random girls, would you have said, "Wow he's so lucky!"

If you saw me stuck in LA traffic for 6 hours a day, driving for Uber, would you have wanted to trade places with me?

Fuck no.

Yet all of those situations lead me to where I am today - working from my computer in a tropical place, making fake internet money from companies that print fake internet money. Learning Muay Thai from dudes who don't speak English. Spending 3 hours a day working on my tan. Making friends from all over the world. Banging 22 year old Argentinian girls on their gap year. Making a name for myself in the crypto space while STILL managing to remain authentic - NOT being pigeonholed into writing sterile, sexless articles for CCN.

47 Lamborghini's in my Lamborghini account

There's no way to predict when you'll have your breakout moment. You just gotta do the work, but it's hard when you've already built yourself a little cocoon of Netflix and your loser friends. One thing I'm thankful for is my ability to abandon any situation, location, friend or even family member if they try to pop my balloon (just wish I could get rid of the girlfriends faster).

Life is too short for that shit. Some day we're all gonna feed the worms anyway, so you might as well make the most of it. Maybe you hurt your mommy's feelings or you have to dump your fat girlfriend. Boo hoo. Trust me, ripping off the band-aid is worth it. It hurts at first, but there's nothing like being free. You really can control your own destiny. You just have to do the work.

Three months ago I didn't even know what an ICO was. Now I have companies begging me to work with them, begging me to take their money. Why? Because I'm a blockchain expert? I don't even fucking understand how Bitcoin works.

But I've probably sent 3000 emails in the past three months, reaching out to people who do. I've written 100 articles on Steemit about crypto. I make it seem like I'm at least borderline intelligent enough to handle their business affairs properly.

Did I start like this? No way man. Two years ago I was an Uber-driving NEET, single-handedly keeping the hardboiled egg industry alive. Four months ago I was selling hair straighteners to a bunch of Arabs in one of the worst neighborhoods in Australia. Three months ago I was dropshipping bunny-shaped iPhone cases from AliExpress. Two months ago I started getting clients.

But you know what? Every day I wake up and my #1 priority is making enough money so I can stay in Thailand. I'm grateful for my past experiences, but I have no desire to go back to selling hair straighteners in kiosks. I've had a taste of the good life, of having so much money that I can buy 100 high karma Reddit accounts without thinking about it. Nonchalantly dropping a few $k into STEEM just to get attention from a bunch of randos on Steemit. Buying the $6 shawarma with extra chicken like I'm fucking Bill Gates or something.

And besides, I'm gonna be 35 this year. What's the famous quote? Lemme find it...

Loved this shit. You are a good writer and have a found a way to keep everyone engaged - that's not easy!

When you have time, listen to John Mcafee's interview on the Bad Crypto podcast this week. There is a 72 year old, who gives less fucks than is reasonable for a man in his age.

Do you make these memes? We need teeshirts LOL

I agree with you very much.

·

wow you have a way with words... you are a dude I have to follow love your style..

·

Ok that's funny.

I wonder how you wrote this article, I sense your nature as human being or it might be the effect of playing dota and yoga. :)

·

Yeah i'm just here to comment under the top comment so that it appears under the comment that commented under the top comment so that people reading the top comment will see my comment at the top. Truce. #humor

I'm an Ursa spammer

Try dancing lesson ... is like yoga classes, you will feel great

Definitely down for some Dota

·

Definitely the result of the dota-yoga combo! Somehow loved your unvarnished story a lot!!!

Not exactly the kind of motivational article people look for, but if one reads the entire article, it gets the thing done.

You have been through a lot of shit, that made you so strong that you don't give any shit anymore for anything.

The persistence to become great will drive you to a great destiny.
You stick to do something better in your life, never giving up.

It may sound some cheesy stuff of not giving up, but it is quite important in life, because most of the people would break down the moment you were going through the Uber time.

But you didn't, you changed your life, and again life sucked while you were selling the hair straighteners, so you changed it again and again till the moment came when life didn't suck anymore.

This is the only thing that made you better than a whole lot of the world.
Hope you keep going on.

·

Yeah. You are spot on @looftee

At a point i almost stopped reading seeing those "f" words rampaging in the content. But something about @yallapapi's originality glued me.

This is a timeless article.

It is a masterpiece on resoluteness, sheer effort, doggedness, and positive energy.

To change our situations, we must be willing to learn. The tonic needed was that Grant Cardone's message. This is one issue all of us have per time. I read biographies more than any other kind of books, or motivational classics that tells of people's personal journey, far more than those with "laws" and "principles". When we become opened to another's stories, we find ourselves in a piece of it, and while we may not be required to do exactly what they did to break out, it opened us to a new level of awareness and energy for life to make things happen.

·
·

That's true, the most important point to take from this post is that we need to adapt to change in our life and not stagnate in one place or in being one thing.

·

You are so right @looftee, this is the kind of speech the teens needed, not all that milk-type of motivation.

I mean i was glued from the beginning to the end of the article, didn't even feel like a sec has passed, it was engaging all through.

Life throws shit at all of us but what we make out of it is what matters, do we sulk and hide under the table or do you get up and give it another shot? i go for the latter.

Great post @yallapapi

·
·

Thanks.

·

got the gist of it but kinda started scrolling after a bit lol. you always tend to get the point across though.

"gonna be a motivated mother fucker"

·

@looftee you are right

This might be the best thing I've ever read on here!

·

He's right about Grant Cardone. Grant motivated me so much I now own a trailer court.
Now I'm the King of the Rednecks here in Kentucky. Next week I'm buying my false teeth thanks Grant!!!!!!!

yes, there has been so many posts recently with no great content but still they are being apprecitated.
Even though if you use bots they are profitable and you are losing money in doing so . I don't know why people are doing that.
With paid votes, the followers you get, they are not even good or active followers because you don't have connection with them.

·

Yes but a combo of his slapstick motivational techniques combined with his throwing away of some money to promote this post got your attention! And many of us read it, it's a great article.

AGREED about the trending page.

Your posts are the only long-form ones I actually finish on Steemit. Funny and refreshing and non-bullshitty. Love it.

Although I don't fully agree with the 'eat, drink, and be merry' perspective (I had a religious upbringing - shoot me) you've got some motivational gems in here I find intriguing - going off to look up Grant Cardone now!

·

Get the audiobooks. Much better than the actual book. Especially BOBA - he ad libs a lot, kinda like me.

@yallapapi I was being reading your post, you try to explain the people need to solve what to do for their future, money and the life: Dare yourself and persist. I upvoted you.

I was totally not expecting that maamer chazal!

Lol. I started reading your articles before I joined steemit. It's still as refreshingly honest as ever.

·

honesty i so nice these days unfortunately some how it is so rare!

@yallapapi my situation now is simple
I am a 17 year old guy in india
I make money through crypto trading and I am trying to make enough money to move to Thailand or any good place
I am trapped in this bullshit education system.
I don't have time to do anything that I want to do.
Hell thanks to this stupid crash my portfolio is going to the ground, listening to Bob Marley is not helping now and I don't even have enough money to buy upvotes.
So I know that you will not even see this comment
So that's it

·

haha, not everyone may see this comment, but I do. Crypto gave you money, and now it took some back, so what's wrong with it.

The only problem with you now is that you were dependent only on crypto trading. Find more source of income.
Like writing on steemit( It will not give you money even if you write good) or doing something on bitcointalk.org or something else.

Make some money for next few months, add more to your portfolio, and when the bull markets come, withdraw money then.

This is the circle of life buddy.

·
·

First of all thank you for the upvote @looftee.
I really want to add more money to my portfolio and it really hard to find work now and my exams are going on right now and this crash really drove me crazy now it's really hard to focus on anything.

·
·
·

You have got a lot of time. You are still very young.
And it is very good that you are looking towards becoming financially independent and your future but don't be so hard on yourself.

You have got your entire life to make money, but as of now enjoy and make money.

However rich or poor you are, the moments you will miss now will never come back.

·

All I can tell you is to use your brain and think for yourself. It's your life and you only get to live it one time. You can either make your own choices or let other people make them for you. Good luck.

·
·
·
·
·

Get a degree from India . Education is cheapest in India . Just compare the college prices of countries around the world . You should quit trading , steeming or minimize it . Your main focus should be your education . Your education will define your future not the cryptos .

·
·
·
·

or get educated here and actually build something that's ready for you when you are, you make a fine point about education, but that gets you in tunnel vision as much as social medias distract the sanity from you.

But if you know what you are doing and how to do it, it's quite easy, I will say "You will define your future!" not education where you have to be subservient worker (probably) In education's case if you use it, it can make you a great person, maybe a living legend, but anything can do that if you put in the effort and the brains.

So I have to say I actually agree with you, I see it a bit differently, but in comparison to being a market slave and waiting whole years for whatever, it's not a great deal, I have to say I've barely made up my losses in trading, something I'm not sure is fair to the way I've earned them :)

this was a really funny post. definitely different than your standard steem content.

Wow, this has been the best article I have read on here in 4 weeks.

Bloody brilliant!!

Although I am married with a son and mortgage so looks like I am screwed. (Apparently)

Got to ask - What is a shawarma?

Followed!!

Haha, so true! These upvote bots are ruining Steemit..

If you're not paying for it, you're the product.

Don't worry Zuck, you're still #1 douchebag.

Wow, a very motivational and extended story.

My favorite parts are you in LA being a "shitty uber driver, not the kind with water bottles driving around a Lexus." Lol. Wow I can't believe all you ate was hard boiled eggs and oatmeal. Maybe I'll pick up that diet - it sounds like a spartan diet. I have like $1000 of credit card debt I need to get out of so that sounds like a good start. What did you like most about the yoga classes? Did you score with the hot milfs?

I'm confused exactly what you did once you moved back to Australia? Was it Instagram/Steemit solely? I like your quote about the guy needing to work 15 hours a day, 7 days a week until you get that outcome. I need that type of drive! Nothing comes easy. Truly awesome post man.

·

Great workout, mad gainz in flexibility, strong core... it just reshapes your body. Plus when you learn to control your breathing, you get a high at the end of class which lasts for a few hours. And you do it all while surrounded by beautiful trophy wives and miscellaneous hot LA chicks.

Will make a post about Oz in the future.

spend a few $k to get attention from randoms.

Or

  1. spend a few $k fucking hookers and doing blow.
  2. Film that greatness
  3. upload to Dtube
  4. Become hated by 99% of the community who are jealous
  5. Profit
  6. ???
·

I've actually been thinking of doing like a 24 Hour Unlimited Hooker Challenge, where you sleep with as many prostitutes in 24 hours as possible and making a vlog about the whole thing. We'll see.

I hope my mom never finds Steemit.

·
·

what a unique post it was. this is genuine question and some of the people really need to know the answer. if you really want to stop being a loser its just so simple mind your own darn business

Holy shit, that escalated and gained depth quickly!
What started out as a joke about the Trending page turds turned into an epic story and gave some important life lessons.
Hilarious bio man 😂 Gotta follow ya.

·
·
·

Now I'm stuck thinking about the noise that ants make.

·
·
·

They cry uncle a lot

·
·
·
·

Their size definitely doesn't help, I bet.

So you moved to Thailand where it takes $20 a day to live on and think you're hot shit. Noted.

yallapapi, you are my spirit cunt. stay awesome mate.

Yeah. How is that every effing time I think you just wrote your best post ever, you just write a bestest post ever.

I'm gonna get those tickets to Thailand.

·

That's one of the hardest things about writing. Sometimes you write an inspired piece that's so good, you can't believe it came out of you. But then when you try to write something in the future, it just doesn't measure up. You end up chasing the lightning... a good problem, I guess.

Great post as always. I have a question for you that I thought you would answer. you talk about in the beginning of your post that people pay $2400 per week to promote their posts and stay on the trending page. What is the return? Thanks and keep up the great face smacking posts.

·

i need your help.can you help me

·
·

That depends. What type of help do you need please?

·
·
·

im small user.i don't know all.plz give mw your whatsapp number plz

·

Instead of asking me that question, I recommend you think of it this way:

Why do you want people to see your work?
Why are you promoting yourself?
What is the purpose?
If you used the bots at a loss, would you still do it?

Good luck.

·
·

I want to grow my writing skills and make a business out of it if possible. I feel like I have something to say but I need time to say it all well. If I can get paid while I develop my skills that is great and I could use the money.

To get this done here on Steemit I have to understand what the effective tactics are that work toward building up my finances. I do not have much money, and I also need to continue working on my writing every day which I do.

But I believe that good writing alone will not create a business here for me. There needs to be
more. You always talk about this. So I try and understand what else needs to be done, which is why I asked you the question. The more I know, the more I can use to get myself ahead.

Would I use the bots if they were not profitable? I would if there was another benefit that could get me ahead. I am investing my time here nearly every day taking away from things that can pay me a little but I am happy to do it if there is a future. So I do not have a problem paying to get ahead. But I have to know what I should be paying for. Hopefully this is clear.

Thanks.

Hmm.. well you asked for my advice, so I'm going to tear you apart.

I read a few of your posts. No offense but it doesn't look like you have anything to say at all. Nothing original at least. No personal stories or anecdotes. Nothing that made me want to read more. What's the difference between any of your articles and the billions of other SEO clickbait trash that's out there? What chance did you take? What part of yourself did you expose? Nothing.

I'm sure you have it inside you somewhere. We all do. But I can't find it on your page.

I see what you're trying to do because I used to do that too. That's actually how I started on here, was by writing 1-2 crypto articles per day. They started out like normal news articles. Then I let a little of my sense of humor creep in there. Now I'm writing trash like you see here.

Just depends on what you want. You want to "make a living" with your writing. Okay, go sign up for eLance or whatever they're calling it now and sell your services. Go self publish erotica on Amazon. You can always find work as a writer doing 300 word articles for companies. Make a profile and start looking for work.

But I don't think you've found your voice yet. Or you want to write a book? Work the "female entrepreneur" angle or the "racial minority + female entrepreneur" angle. Sounds shallow, but you have to work with what you've got. Or I don't know, just say what's inside. I got nothing from your posts. No idea of you you are, what your story is and why I should care. It's not that I heard your story and don't care. I didn't hear it. All I saw was more of the same Cosmo quiz 8 steps to keep your man satisfied garbage.

Don't look to Steemit to earn a living unless:

  1. You're prepared to show your face/body and milk the thirsty circle-jerkers on here for their $0.09 upvotes
  2. You can write something that can arouse some sort of emotional response in people
  3. Both 1 & 2

Every time I talk to a girl who wants to do something with her life, I always tell her to use her looks to her advantage. Men are stupid. Our brains don't work when we're in the presence of girls. Double if they're wearing less clothing than normal. To not use that to your advantage is just plain stupid, especially if you actually want to achieve success.

Your problem isn't vote bots. Your problem is that you don't actually want it bad enough. You're too scared of failing to put yourself out there, to show the real you. Vote bots don't matter. Money doesn't matter. If you wanted it bad enough you'd find a way to get the exposure and make it happen. Look at your reasons for wanting what you want. If they're strong enough then you won't need my advice because you'll be too busy doing the work to consider asking ANYONE for advice.

In fact, your whole thinking is off. "good writing alone will not create a business for me here." First of all, that just sounds like an excuse to not be a good writer.

Second, nothing "creates a business for you." You create the business. Have you created one yet? Doesn't look like it. How many potential clients have you contacted? Probably none. How many emails have you sent to businesses offering your services? Also probably none. Stop looking for advice and start asking people to give you money in exchange for work. Good luck.

Thanks for your comments. They are noted. I am getting it believe it or not. Taking some time but slowly getting an understanding.

My writing will get better over time. No worries for me there. You do anything with intent long enough and you improve. But beginning on this platform is tough because there is no direction. I started out really putting up stronger content. I had to back off because volume seems to be more effective. Just my observations.

In terms of giving more of myself and wearing less clothes, etc off course I get that. It might come to that but not quite yet. It is different for a girl as you know. Not ruling it out but not just yet. I have to gauge the return for me which is what I am trying to do now. I see a few girls here doing that and nothing is happening for them, so that alone won't necessarily get it done. But again, I am calculating it all. If it is possible for me I will get it right.

Your comments, candor and time are very appreciated. I have gotten a lot out of them. You are a sweetheart. Thanks again. :)

Your writing style is similar to the one of @trafalgar (are you @trafalgar? :) ). Anyway, I like to read something refreshing like this on trending!

·

LOL. He wishes he was me.

Sorry to break the news to you, but you are still a loser. You have no purpose. You are a taker.

You've clearly got talent. You're a great writer. Now go find your purpose. Be driven by love, not by fear, the fear of not having enough money to continue to live in Thailand and "bang" young women who are looking for love and have not yet learned to avoid men like you. Be a giver. Grow up, dude.

·

LOL look at this guy. You're right, I am still a loser, but not for the reasons you listed.

Yes, I am a taker. That is my purpose. To take.

But the trick is to take from people who want to give to you. And if they don't want to, you do everything you can to make them want to. Especially the ones looking for love. Those are my favorite ones.

·

From your post, it appears that you have chosen the path of selfishness. "Those who are selfish shall not taste true love." It is a foolish path, and those who follow your example are the bigger fools. When you are older, you will not be proud of the wake of destruction and heartbreak that you have left, and you will find that you have surrounded yourself with people just like yourself.

Giving really is better than receiving. A life of taking is a life driven by fear. It is the life of a cancer cell.

I might have you all wrong. I'm just going from your well written and entertaining post. The real test is whether you are the kind of man who pisses all over the toilet seat, or the kind of man who lifts the seat back out of the way so that the next asshole to enter the stall won't piss all over it.

Brother let me tell you, putting aside all this serious talk for a second, you really missed your calling as a video game writer. I feel like I’m playing Baldur’s Gate 2.

+1 for the baldur's gate drop.

Even in a two line post, you exhibit that you think of people as objects. There is another way to see things, in which each encounter is sacred, each person is sacred, and life is experienced with purpose and duty. Rather than toy with me, reflect on my words, on whether the pleasures of life are bringing you happiness, and on where you will be when you are my age (63) if you continue on your path. Good luck and best regards.

I don't have $2400 so I'm a loser too. That's so sad. I'll just have to work my ass out a little harder I guess ^__^

I liked this post. I upvoted your bitch ass.

Living in Thailand would be cool. I'm gonna look into the Visa options and see if there are long term ways to stay there!

·

There are. Do it.

bruh, this is legit the realest post ive ever seen. Keep grinding yo and try some brazilian pussy next time. best orgasm youll ever have.

I don't know why I started reading your post but I know why I carried on reading it. It was like you were actually in the room with me, just talking to me.

A lot of what you say in this post makes sense.

More power to your elbow - Happy 35th Birthday (when it arrives).

Keep aiming higher!

LA sucks :) Surprisingly I have met quite a few people who were from LA who came here to Alaska to get away from the place. Me from Alaska when I visit LA I have a great time. Cheap booze and the sun. Tourist attractions like the massive amount of homeless people sleeping against the police station. Everything I know about people and rules do not exist there :) For christ sakes you have to pay to use a toilet there and you are NOT allowed to pee in the bushes.

·

LOL - underrated comment

Starting off with expletives and blasphemy isn't motivating me to read the rest of your article or call it "half decent", sorry.

·

It's okay. I forgive you

·
·

lol - people offended by words make me giggle.

Holy shit! I fucking loved this... and I don't usually talk like that! Yeah, I love Grant Cardone too --I totally read your writing with the same amount of hype he speaks with.
The key to breaking out? Obsession and GODDAMN persistence! And you've to be hungry for it. Hungry!!!

·

Pro comment

Enjoyed your post immensely - glad I clicked to read it. Now I spent 1 hour going through more of your posts - highly addictive writing and a great sense of humor. :)

·

Sad but true.
10/10 for appropriate profanity :-D

·

The long lost art of using appropriate profanity

Okay, so what I like most about you, is the fact that you put it out there. I may not agree with everything you say but at least you have the nerve to say it. There's a whole lot of Truth in what you speak and a lot of people may not like it but I think that those who will take the time and listen and apply what you say will probably be better off. Thank you for the rant / insight. Talk about some good content!!

·

This guy gets it

·
·

Well thank you. I like to believe that I do. however there are times that I just don't know. I do love what you're doing here. Stay true. Continue to speak your mind. And not give a darn.

I'm getting addicted to your shit, man. Love your writing

·

Damn. I should start charging then

Wow! Your writing style is so raw and authentic, I just binged on a couple of your posts and I seriously love your voice and your story. Glad you got out of the rat race!

Even if this article was a 10 minutes read I didn't get bored reading, I just love your writing style :D, reason why I'm not making fun of you doing yoga and being into milfs, keep it up annon.

Nice meme, saved. And if you're still listening audio books, I recommend Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, actually you should listen everything by Napoleon Hill. I can share my audio books playlist if ya want. :)

Bruh... what is this 1998? Come on man hit me with something I’ve never heard of

Oh... that hurts! N.H and The Richest Man In Babylon are muh fave, bruh. :( This is a collection I started with some friends: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvyn_Bbx53feVbcfZW6YbeDagyNaSkDDE
you should start with Science Of Persuasion from that list.

·
·

·
·

There we go. Looks like a good list. I'll dig into it later.

dunno bruz, i cant even put pen to paper, but you write like that voice i hear in the back of my head that i never listen too . looking forward to reading thru your other stuff. Cheers legend o/

·

Time to start listening

""Well ACKSHULLY you CAN'T be an NBA player if you're not a seven foot tall black guy." Fuck off."

Not a fan of facts/reality? (Most people don't have greatness in them, you know. That's what average means.)

PS - I like your writing style, but you're not cynical enough for reality.

PPS - May have spoken too soon: "And if you're married... I dunno, just get divorced and take half his shit."

We all make mistakes

Talented writer!, got me reading from beginning to end!
i-must-resteem...


I miss the good old pirate bay!, is still around but you don't find as much as before.. i support piracy... in the matter that is good to know / see / try some content, and if you like it go buy it..and support the artist, creators that made it possible.

like in movies, they should give free samples in low res and just sell the HD or something like that, same for music, i dont know... there is so much taken down in the name of "God" or "Copyrights", and usually on both of those sides that say to fight for what is right but it tends to go to the opposite at the end,... to much law / power and no common sense !

For example i would like to see more movies etc in d.tube, i might have some content to upload, just that i would deny payout on that content since it does not belongs to me, and i would do it for entertainment educative purposes and placing in the info, authors, etc in the description below the video.

knowledge should not be copyrighted

i will follow you for more! this was a great post 🙋 and i have to agree on your comments on the instagram picture, we still run around blindfolded hopefully not for too long!, also wanted to say that's a f*cking epic photo! that fox knew what he was doing!
sublimate


pd: dota into steem that would be nice :) i was a bit feeder, lol.

I really must say I truly enjoyed your article I just followed you to see what else you have up your sleeve keep it up

" "friends" and family members will snatch your ass right back down to their level once they see you trying to escape your hell."

This is very true.

You make some good points but the writing style maybe a bit to edgy and immature for whats expected from a 35 year old...no offense (i'm sure a person with your confidence wont take offense).

I hope you can achieve all your goals.

·

You make some good points but the writing style maybe a bit to edgy and immature for whats expected from a 35 year old...no offense (i'm sure a person with your confidence wont take offense).

None taken. I actually consider it a compliment.

Whoever said niggas don't like to read was a GOT DAMN LIE!! Man I usually don't read a post this long all the way to the end...But DAMN you made a nigga remember I got a college degree!!! Awesome read...
keep up the good work, I'm hooked now...

·

The first one's free

Lmao here. Your writing style is just mean. Gritty but real AF. Mentor me?
i'm serious

·
  1. Write like you talk
  2. Tell the truth

That was a funny read mate. I totally get it. If you weren’t in Thailand would you be making enough money to exist? I’d love to make enough from crypto to live in a developed country. I can certainly see how it’s possible to live off crypto in a place like Thailand.

·

Yes. The only thing I can say to you is to just try. Every day. Come up with an offer and get it in front of 50 - 100 people per day. You'll start making money sooner than you think.

Great read! Been a long time since i read a post from trending page and is soo worth it. You might wanna consider visiting the Philippines especially Angeles city, its way more cheaper here and more fun and people can speak english. I can show you around too if you want. Anyway thanks for the read new follower here.

·

Thank you brother. Never met a Filipino person I didn't like. It's on the list.

Fantastic read. I'm literally sitting in West LA right now and eating Hard Boiled Eggs for dinner. You're so right about this place lol. I hate it but i'm here for the moment. Havn't driven Uber yet because traffic is a nightmare.

·

LOL. Good luck

You know what? that was the most fucking motivational article I ever read... you got your shit done.

I Hate those mother fucking marketing gurus that try to sell you shit and motivational stuff to "change" your life... when all you need to do is get the shit done.

Consider to write a book and maybe.. you will motivate some people to change their life like this article worked for me.

·

Yes, I agree. That's why I'm a fan of Grant Cardone. He's a bit more polished than I am, but he's very real as well. Straight talk. Get his audio books for sure.

Ego anger and pride

I relate to you in some ways. Also 35. I've spent time in SE Asia and traveled/lived different places in the USA. Thailand is amazing but Laos was my favorite overall I think.

At various points on my journey, I got into some bad circumstances, and all that stuff kinda caught up with me these last few years. Stuff has been rough for me, but I've come to a lot of the same conclusions about how it's just hard work and you gotta do it. I know what I want. I've been working hard and slowly making progress on my dream, but it gets discouraging at times. Some parts of this felt like you were speaking directly to me. Thank you. 🙂

·

You're welcome. That will be $1000 SBD.

Listen, I understand if you live in India and make like $2/day. I was just in Malaysia and saw junkies sleeping on the street. I don't think they've ever even watched porn on the internet, let alone used Steemit. THOSE guys don't have a fucking chance, sadly.

perfect mind of first world country people.they think their life is so difficult because theyre being an uber driver or selling some hair stuff. then they have a chance to move australia and after that banging 22 years old argentinian girls in thailand. What a success story.

wake up dude.

Loading...

So what you're saying is you spent 35 years preparing to write 100 Steemit posts. Or something. Whatever it was that you were saying at least you said it in a way that was entertaining. Upvote and resteem for you.

·

Every moment in your life has lead up to this one

Bro, your posts are funny.

I see you working it.

But how much cocaine is on that tropical island?

ADHD af.

Still got you on the follow though.

·

Brother this is my natural state.

Natural + Wellbutrin + modafinil + noopept + selegiline.

Still pretty natural.

·
·

I’ve been really digging this organic non-gmo Mexican Xanax.

Makes me feel really natural.

·
·

Thats funny, keep it natural folks!

Wow, I LOVED this post. Made me laugh and still rang true - good on you, man! Thanks for this, and I'm looking forward to reading more. And getting the $6 shawarma.

Cheers,
Just another asshole who appreciates your shit :)

At first, didn’t want to read the long pile of crap. Flipped my phone over and wanted taking a nap. Then “what the hell” said to myself, came back to the post again and decided to bore myself with your page provided stress.
But, a few minutes in.. felt quite blessed, just wanted to read on and on and didn’t want to stop.
Right now am busy sliding through all yours posts and reading comments on ‘em like Sunday’s toasts 🤣🤣🤣....
Please keep up, cause am sure to pop up and read the good stuff you bring.

YES! I love this post. Say it how it is and real talk!!!!!!!!

I know you once paid people to read your posts (lol -sorry not sorry), but I think its crazy how people are spending money on their crap posts for upvotes (cringe). It's like paying for popularity and buying friends and likes. Just be genuine! And like you said, go change your scenery and LIVE a little!

Its also funny how the online world can portray unreality. You basically choose what you want people to see, but I think people are more likeable when they just stop hiding behind the internet curtain and just be themselves and be authentic.

I am not knocking Steemit as I believe in what it is supposed to stand for. But sadly like most things, you start getting people using fake bots and articles that are rubbish getting to the trending page... Its not much better than FB in that respect, people paying for advertising to boost their clickbait articles and them appearing in your newsfeed...

Anyway, i'll just be over here, writing blogs to my 70 followers and perhaps one day my following and upvotes will grow organically, and if not, then Steemit just isn't for me! I am definitely not paying a bot to upvote my stuff, even if I do take the time to write my posts and make them look pretty.

Anyway, welldone for stepping outside the bubble and creating a life for yourself :)

Very honest and enjoyable to read. I liked how it was more colloquial than you trying to write it a certain style to remain professional or proper. You just let the words pour out! Nicely done.

Great stuff, I will try to remember it when I'm in Thailand next month writing an article!

This shit is the best I ever read and very good for the broke like me. Don't ask me why, because you were once in this shit situation and you will watch me break free like your shit head. Fuck your dick head and write another shit that I love like this shit one. Thank you very much @yallapapi1379841_10150004552801901_469209496895221757_n.jpg

The part about moving is very true. I've moved cities three times in my life, and I've noticed that each time my personality and the way I interact with people changed a little bit. Probably because nobody there knows me and in order to make a good first impression, I build a new persona for myself.

Such a interesting my friend keep up the good work posts like this get a lot of attention 👍

thanks for this post its really motivating.

Haha i fucken love how real you are man, that was an awesome ass story.

Resteemed by @resteembot! Good Luck!
Curious? Read @resteembot's introduction post
Check out the great posts I already resteemed.

ResteemBot's Maker is Looking for Work

Well, That's sad but True. The trending page is full of the same articles, all over and over again. Everything is promoted and resteemed by bots. Even if you want to add some fresh and new content, even first post in some tag, share some of your irl experience about making money, leading a business - you wont get through all this spam. Some people dont even think what they are adding they just do it to get more and more cash.
Cheers, upvoted and follow.

You are making sense when we are supposed to fade off the fake stuff let just make money now with the available resources on our hands or brain because some niggas out there really pray to capture this stuff and when they do they blow off cuz they are pretty hungry about it so crap your phone or other auctions and make the dreams come true

Nice article! :) It was a lot of fun to read. This is actually more inspiring than those other motivational articles that take themselves too seriously.

I'm following you. Would be fun if it was reciprocal.

And, speaking of bots... See you around! :D

I don't know why I read the whole thing but I did and I don't even regret it.have my upvote

Grumpycat sucks .....

This is like the first post since I joined steemit that wasn't boring to read, wasn't like you taught me how to stop being a fucking looser but at least you gave me an idea lol, thank you!

Your posts are #contentcandy. They keep me hopeful I'll find more good content elsewhere on Steemit. Keep up the great work!

My reaction to reading this.... before I started lauhging

"One thing I'm thankful for is my ability to abandon any situation, location, friend or even family member if they try to pop my balloon". That's a skill not many learn in life.

Yeah it all true..we've got to sacrifice what we have in other to achieve great things

Success doesn't just happen overnight

Wow..i like this steemit travel..so beautiful life..i appreciate this blog money..

You did make me laugh, which was one step up from the rest of the trending posts I disconsolately scrolled through when i was meant to be 'working' this morning. :)

Probably one of the top 5 rants slash motivational speeches I've ever read. Good shit my dude

I think the raw emotion and bluntness of this article really makes it special. I think it really resonates with me because it's how I feel. I'm kind of in the middle of hard boiled eggs and Australia, while also still having relationships I don't want. Once I don't need those people, they can GTFO.

what the heck is going on i dont understand any of this wo bu dong chong wen , no comprende

I like it. In summation you're telling everyone to 'grow a pair', its not some hippy 'you can be anything you want speel'. Thank you for your honesty, it is truly refreshing.

Very nice post and great article
