How do people who started with nothing turn into successes

I don't fucking understand
>>
>>1052026
They worked hard
>>
>>1052027
Lots of people work hard and end up with nothing, the majority of people

how do successful people even know what to work hard doing
>>
They bought Ethereum
>>
>>1052034
Then they either didn't work hard enough or worked hard but not smart.
>>
>>1052026
Because they worked hard, tried multiple things and eventually got lucky at one of them.

>Implying you didn't know this already.

>Implying you aren't just complaining on an bangladeshi scat fetish board because no one irl has the time to listen to you.

They offered a service that everyone in town.
Then they expanded that service to the entire country and then the world

It's a combination of critical thinking, decades of hard work, excellent social ability in the corporate world, a huge pair of balls, and the willingness to sacrifice a happy life in order to succeed.

relentless work ethic + some brains

I'm sure many did get lucky in some way... But that's a result of working hard consistently for many years and being smart.

You can't really "get lucky" until you work as hard as you can everyday, or get close to it.
>>
>>1052026
Look its pretty simple...Working is like playing the lottery...it keeps the players occupied and optimistic...and a few strike it big so that everyone else keeps plugging away...as long as you play you may be lucky enough to win big.

I'd imagine they don't. By some combination of luck and instinct they choose correctly. Bill gates just loved programming.
>>
>>1052026
wartime service, pell grants, economic booms, and good decisions

all at the same time

Working hard is part of the equation, but it's more important to work smart, there is no point being the best woodworker in the desert.

Statistically, this doesn't happen as much as once might be led to believe. Underdog stories are compelling and we hear them all the time. Yet for every one person who is exceptional, many more end up in the same place from more favorable origins.

I am a firm believer that smart people get ahead in spite of circumstance and that this holds even more true for those who are very smart. I would chance a guess that most people who started out with nothing and later became successes were likely smart people regardless of their educational attainment. If anything, this has become more true since the 1950s and 60s when the most blatant WASP nepotism began to go out of style. Although this meme persists, I would challenge one to find more than a few top earning guys in finance who were dumb as bricks and only there because of a last name.

They had a good work ethic and a definite goal. My gf grew up in a trailer with mostly absentee parents and now she is a college professor. She did it through lots of hard work.

You are most likely addicted to porn or vidya or something and your dopamine system is all fucked beyond belief, so you won't be motivated to work hard and won't accomplish shit. I have no advice for you.
>>
>>1052339
Some people read the market well. I'd imagine that if you sat down and reasoned through some trends involving current events, you too could make some solid guesses regarding what might be important in the coming decades.
>>

They post on /biz/

>>1052026

Get lucky.

If I had an infinite number of retards born into slavery working under me some of them are going to defy all odds and escape their chains and retardation.

You cannot believe this if you want to be successful fyi.

>your dopamine system is all fucked beyond belief
Are you just spewing shit out of your ass?
>>
>>1052476
OP obviously has a motivation problem. It's something he should investigate.
>>
>>1052481
It seems more like he is confused about ways to earn a large sum of capital when starting out with almost none.

I can't see anything OP has said that is related to his motivation.
>>
>>1052358
Ppl will ignore this post, but this is thé current generations biggest problem.
Messed up dopamine values.
>>
>>1052358
>your dopamine system is all fucked beyond belief

Legit question, how could one fix this problem?
>>
Le ancestors didn't masturbate dopameme
>>
>>1052509
By watching porn, you spike dopamine and deplete it. Making you into a sloth, no motivation, socially anxious and depressed.

>Nofap with superiority complex
Fucking lol

I started a successful business with $200 and an 8 time convicted felon. It's not that hard. Getting my ass out of bed in the morning is sometimes.
>>
>>1052026

They stepped on the backs of other people with nothing.
>>
>>1053275

>8 time convicted felon

jesus christ what the fuck did you do

8 felonies is basically a life sentence in 90% of the U.S.
>>
>>1053287
No not me, my then business partner.

A lot. Fleeing and eluding, harboring, receiving stolen property (2 or 3 of them), something else related to a firearm. I was involved with the Hells Angels. Which was perfect for the business we ended up starting at the time.
>>
>>1053256
Not that guy, but you're certainly not going to develop any endurance, willpower, connections, social skills or applicable technical skills by sitting in your room all day jacking off in between shitposts. It's not rocket science.

If you want to be successful at anything then you need to be competitive. Digital distractions take away your urge to compete.
>>
>>1053318
Obviously not doing anything valuable with your time is a bad idea. But masturbation is actually healthy mentally.

I mean, the time most people spend on 4chan is what others spend of facebook and on tv.
