"Just put yourself out there"
If you didn't develop the necessary social skills like all normies do growing up you'll be a clueless aspie whenever you try to interact, no matter how many times you try. You have to make a conscious effort to learn social interaction by reading books on it or going to a therapist and observing how normies act from a distance to see how they do it without all the pressure on yourself. Then you also have to learn how to dress properly and present yourself well.
Just "throwing yourself out there" into social situations without all that will just lead to rejection and humiliation over and over no matter how much you try it. I made that fucking mistake all the time.
The people who say that are retards who have petty goals. If all you want is an upper middle class life, then yeah, if you work hard enough, you can have it. But if you seriously think hard work can get you anything, you're a moron. It doesn't matter how hard you work, you're never going to run faster than picture related for example.
yes its true.
but you have to work hard. life doesn't just give you everything so you have to be the one to get it.
you must devote your entire being into what you want to become.
you have to want your dreams as badly as a person having an asthma attack wants to breathe.
>you'll have all the time in the world to find a gf after school
>all the teenager girls these days are worthless whores
at some point I started believeing this bull shit that my mum used to tell me all the time and I forgot about what really mattered to me, it was already too late before I knew it and I had already became an anti-social obese neet who wasted his best years cooped in his room playing shitty video games, while punching walls and tables.
You're a moron. Even if you want to be the fastest man in the world more than you want to breathe, you're still not even going to break the 10 second 100m mark let alone come close to Usain Bolt.
>I don't believe it
>That is why you fail
well it doesn't matter. saying i wish i tried happened is a million times worse than saying i failed trying.
anon what did you want to be when you grow up? whatever it is it's still achievable. get off r9k, start reading what it takes to become that person and work until you collapse to bed every night.
I guess youth comes to play as well. no way might a 60 year old man end up training this very second and beat usain bolt in a few years time. but you never know.
Precalc isn't that hard honestly. It's 90 percent algebra. Find a teacher/tutor that teaches it like that and you're golden.
Then again I just switched to history major and never got past calc 1 so what do I know
>work hard every day, always show up early and be respectful.
>save up your money, be responsible.
>be confident and polite with people and the girls will follow.
>You'll find one who loves you and shares those values and you'll make a family.
>do all of this and you'll be happy.
I have yet to have those last two things, maybe I never will. I feel like a wind up toy that's just left to go without stopping until I'm used up. I can't stop doing what I've been raised, but I don't think the real reward (a family and a loving spouse ) will ever come with how things are in the world.
>come with me in my van i got some free candy
>"One day, you'll have kids and a wife of your own."
This shit actually happened to me except instead of candy it was a ride across the street, even more diabolical.
I wouldve been raped if my little brother didnt hold my naive ass back.
>these plebbit responses
Does anyone here have a job that pays 15+ an hour without thousands in debt?
Hard mode: mommy and daddy didn't pay for you to go to college.
Is the only person in this thread to reach their goals.
You have to be born rich to succeed.
Thats why patents cost upwards of 10k.
Thats college costs so much in fees.
Thats why society is fucked and completely retarded, all the smart people died off because the armed forces are the only chance of success.
Congratulations on not being white and having the ability to throw a ball, retard.
I'm White and I got scholarships. Maybe try not being a brainlet next time, you literal retard. If you couldn't get a 4.2 GPA and 2300 on the SAT, at the very least, I don't know what to tell you.
I am the dude you replied to, and I make 65k/yr. I just finished my degree but I've been working at this company for a few years. Worked while getting it and it took me 8 years. My parents helped me with a bit, I had the hope scholarship, I paid for some, and I got work to pay for a few courses too.
>better to have tried and failed than to have never tried at all
I want this meme to end. Failing has consequences. I wanted to be good at martial arts and now I'm a walking pile of injuries, with 0 wins to my name. People can want to run their own business and go bankrupt trying and lose their house. Everything doesn't always turn out alright, life isn't a hallmark movie. There are risks involved, and not trying is sometimes a calculated decision.
This comic explains it all. Most people don't want to be great because they don't want ot do what it takes to achieve greatness. They'd rather be "comfy" and spend their time on things that bring thme fleeting happiness.
All the Academic staff I ever talked to at Universities:
>"Do my course, it will open up many pathways for you"
>"The employment opportunities are really good if you do this degree!"
>mfw my degree is worthless
>life has a purpose
>you can do what you're passionate about and make dreams come true
>you'll be able to do something else during your 40+ years of adult life besides sit in traffic or sit at your little cuck cubicle answering emails and filling out TPS reports and sitting on "teleconferences" like a little corporate wageslave bitch all day every day until the hours and days all fucking blend together and you lose all sense of self and become a fucking vegetable
Getting rich is simple. Just be a whore and don't give a shit about morals. For instance, if you blow 50 truckers a day at 50$ each, you just made 17,500 in a week. Sure, your breath smells like semen and you probably have all sorts of diseases, but who cares, you're rich! You got what you wanted!
Unless you failed to specify that you wanted to be rich AND keep your morals. That's pretty much impossible. Like I said, most people would rather stay comfy than do what it takes to get what they want, because they don't REALLY want to rich, they want to live a comfortable life. They only think they want to be rich without taking into account the hidden cost of what must be done to achieve it.
At first, I was going to insult you and call bullshit, but I have to admit that comic is somewhat correct. I only have one objection.
>Worrying about shit you can't change is a waste.
While this is true, what the author fails to address is the fact that people will treat you like a worthless piece of garbage because of "things you can't change". As social animals, it is normal and expected for us to care about the opinions of our peers.
Crack costs a lot of money. Crack whores somehow scrape together enough to use it on a nightly basis without having any real employment outside of whoring. Getting what oyu want is a matter of how much you're willing to sacrifice. My point stands.
this is the epitome of all the cliche advice to ever hear.
yeah you could do it, definitely, it might take 250 years or some time greater than your lifespan, but you definitely could do it.
Selling drugs is actually a decent way to get "rich", depending on your definition of rich. It's just all undeclarable money.
>inb4 B-BUT JUST RUN IT THROUGH A BUSINESS
We're getting into too many hypotheticals. Let's wring it around toward the original idea. Can you can achieve anything given enough effort? No. Can you probably get a little bit happier, richer, or healthier? Probably
Stand under a steamroller. you will become 2D just in the cartoons, lol.
Worst part is, I'm only partially joking. I'm thoroughly convinced that each person has a personal heaven made by God to bring them ultimate happiness. If being a cartoon is what makes you happier than anything else, then Heaven for you is likely living in a cartoon. So, dying and believing in God is the only real way to become 2D.
You didn't read the part about heaven, bro. Seriously, God has a plan for you and me, and that plan involves rewarding us with hot 2D angel girls. You just paly your part here on Earth and you get whatever your heart desired.
Yes, you still go to heaven if you don't go to church. Hell, you don't even necessarily have to believe in God. Suppressed texts (Gnostic ones in particular) often mention Jesus stating that he will one day open the gates of hell and free the sinners to paradise. So, even if you're evil, you'll just have a few centuries of torment, and then get your anime heaven.
>Follow your dreams
Everytime I put serious effort and time into something and get what I want. I am happy for maybe a week, once the novelty wears off, I am am displeased. The time, the effort, it seems wasted, what good does it do me to be happy yesterday? Happiness is like a drug, it can get you high but you always come down, the higher you go the harder you fall.
>these jews just didn't want freedom enough
>their holocausting was inevitable so they shouldn't worry about it
Their problem was that they didn't lie and pander enough. Plenty of Jews escaped to the United States, and plenty of them survived by forging new names and pretending to be someone else. Most of the people who died in the Holocaust dies because they were unwilling to give up their identity as a Jew, unwilling to compromise their religion and their heritage, unwilling to throw away their spirituality. Many subconsciously viewed themselves as martyrs.
Again, what you achieve is directly correlated to what you're willing to sacrifice.
God loves you too, Anon, even if you don't believe.
finally someone who gets it
ech ~~leave me alone robot~~ ech
Yes you can, you just need to practice more than him. You have to put a shitload of work into something to become world class, but 'natural talent' has little if anything to do with it.
>1, let alone 50, guys would pay a bot $50 to suck them off
even a decent looking hooker isn't turning 50 tricks a day, and being a successful whore requires you to be a) a grill b) a very good looking man
hardcore crime doesn't even pay enough that "getting rich is simple", the average bank robbery for example nets only $2000
The average man has no realistic chance of becoming rich, regardless of what they're willing to do, and they have zero chance of becoming rich "simply"
>i guess someone didn't want to be a good writer hard enough
"Your teenage years are the best years of your life!"
"You can make friends if you just bee yourself"
That comic pretty much only applies to people who have all the right privileges, wealth, support, etc. So basically people who already have a good life but just aren't making it a better life.
>You're destined to do great things
>biology doesn't exist

How can a blind person become a pilot ?
How would hotwheels go about becoming a world-class runner ?
That's retarded friendo. No matter how hard my laptop runs its never going to out-compete my friends rig. There are limitations, they are called the laws of physics. No matter how hard I run the machine that is my body physically cannot produce the same output
>if you want to have a good job so you never have to flip burgers, just work hard in school and get a college degree
>"It doesn't matter if everyone on Earth hates you, Jesus still loves you."
do they say that in the US too? im from finland and the normies keep rambling about how its a lottery win to be born here, all open possibilities and free universities etc..would be true if there wasnt 5000 other normies competiting for the yearly 150 student slots in med school for examples
the normies pay for expensive private courses costing 5-8k usd where they give the money back if daddys pretty princess doesnt get accepted in med school
Or that's your procrastination, laziness talking, the same way a alcoholic says "I am not drunk... hic... I can have another... hic... one, I will be juuuust fine... yeah".
People just don't really care about things as much as they say they do, it's just bullshit they tell themselves to keep them comfortable.
>Less than a week later she's with Chad
It's fucked. Obvious translation is "I don't want a relationship with you."
No idea why they don't just say that. Sure it would hurt at the time but it'd probably cause less pain and anguish in the long run.
I am a swimming Coach. Probably 40-50 percent of people have the potential to do 50M of freestyle in under 30 seconds, whether its due to willpower, ineptitude that is inherent to them, as well as their natural co-ordination and biology.
This applies not only to my chosen field, but to any part of life that requires work. Do you want to be a professional singer? Hope you have natural talent. What about a competitive bodybuilder? You need good genetics for it
Theres 2 little Asian girls I teach, both 7 years old and similar body types. One has longer arms and way better co-ordination, hence does amazing Butterfly times. The other one can barely swim 15m, despite starting in the same class at the same time
Hit the nail on the head OP. Being told you have a lot of potential is the biggest lie you can tell anyone. There is only a chain of events each with a potentially predicable linked outcome. But then I understood this as an adolescent so I suppose it wasn't much of a lie, which is likely a big part of my problem.
