I don't know, man, I wish I did.
In real life (as opposed to on ATS or other message board) people tell me "I don't have enough money." So I say, OK (do this) and you'll get some
money. I am an entrepreneur, obviously the person I am speaking to knows that, that is why they ask me. I am telling them an actual way, generally
simple, to make more money and solve their problem.
But they won't do it. Not because they aren't smart enough or because I'm running some scam 'pay $499 for this DVD and learn to be rich' NO. An
actual way to make money which anyone can do regardless of education level. But they just won't do it. It feels like that they would rather
COMPLAIN than SOLVE THE PROBLEM. Unmotivated, I guess, I don't know.
Or, I say (do this) and you'll lower your monthly bills. Again, they won't do it! This has been happening to me for years and it is about to the
point where I won't even help anyone who asks me for advice or anything because I've wasted so much time trying to help people who just have no
motivation to help themselves, even after I very clearly explain step by step how to make it better (at their insistence).
They seem to want all their problems solved and everything to just land in their lap, with no effort. It takes work and perseverance and effort man.
You want to know why I have a great marriage? It doesn't just HAPPEN man I WORKED FOR IT. You want to know why I have a decent house, I broke my
butt for it man. No one just gave me a house, I did not win the lottery. But it's like they want me to tell them some magic trick so they can move
into something than wherever they currently live like next week, through next to no effort.
I don't know man. I don't know why people seem to be getting dumber.
