Somewhat related: but does anyone else get depressed when you hear people's dreams? For example: I don't mean to put anyone down but whenever I hear someone tell me what their dreams are it's depressing as fuck to know that they almost certainly won't achieve them.
I also find it sad that everyone has their own little dreams irrespective of everyone else's. It's like: let's say you want to move to live on a yacht or something - from your perspective you feel the most worthiest of having that happen to you and also the most capable of doing it. But things get a little more depressing when you realize literally millions of other drones have the same dream as yourself and for this reason the market price of achieving said dream will never be in your favor.
Mostly we just live in a bubble without being aware of how drone-like our own petty existence is relative to the people around us. It's quite an illusion to think of ourselves as the center of the world where our wants are always first when in grand scheme of things: nobody gives a shit about what we find important and we're barely individuals at all.
Dude you need to find a hobby. Something to take your mind off of obsessing over the future until school starts again.
If you don't focus on the present, you will never have a future. Ignore your illusions of grandeur and find value in your current work.
There are 4 ways to become a billionaire.
1. Start a company that distributes and/or sells a product that literally everyone in the world would want. (Examples: Apple/Microsoft, Drug Trafficking) or creates the framework for other companies to sell on your platform (Steam).
2. Become a (from a political standpoint) authoritarian dictator, and steal it from your people (Putin, Hitler).
3. Get really lucky with investing in a startup that goes global (Snapchat, Facebook).
4. Suck 1 Billion dicks at $1 per transaction.
I recommend 4. you dweeb.
I don't go to school. I'm a blockchain dev but I kind of agree about the hobby. My life right now is 100% work and since I am staying in shit hotel rooms while I write code for other startups: I currently don't even have a place to call my own. Makes for quite a fucked-up work-life balance, desu.
Well, back to coding for me. I managed to break my entire library that I was working on yesterday while "improving" the level of test coverage so now I have to somehow figure out why this socket code doesn't work on Linux. I don't even want to get out of bed. I just want to move out this fucking shit hotel room.
Please help me /biz/.... I want to be a billionaire soooooo bad and am willing to do whatever it takes to get there and I know I can make this dr am come true if I put in enough work and effort, please help me /biz/.... What do I have to do or learn or who do I have to know or learn from if I want to get a billion dollars.....
Lol I confused you with OP.
Let me just say this: you cannot and will not just come up with a million dollar idea on the spot and run with it. It's impossible. You'll know your opportunity when you see it. The harder you work now, the more people you meet now, the more people like you know -- all will help reveal new opportunities.
If you're not already a competent programmer at age 20 then you're not serious about becoming a billionaire.
I don't get depressed from that. People don't really know what they want. They're conditioned by society and the media to be rich and popular.
Everything is about perspective. A lot of us don't think we're the center of the world, and I think there are quite a few people that give a shit about others. Obviously, we all come first in our own worlds, but that doesn't mean we're heartless. It's gonna be alright, m8. Take some acid.
