Yep. Got it all.

The bare minimum is someone who doesn't have any discipline, wastes money, time, and doesn't take care of themselves.

These are prerequisites to success for the VAST majority of people.

Outliers are just that.

Discipline wins over all things.

Education. Procreation. Clarity. Acceptance.

All that doesn't matter. Just live your dream, what ever it might be. Other wise you will live your life constantly saying "what if"....

And Dream big!

Not sure what I could have said.

I just believe that in order to get the highest quality out of life a man must put in real, disciplined work. This is true across all socioeconomic rungs, it's true across all races, colors, and creeds, and it is true of all genders (even the wacky ones). No human can succeed in the absence of discipline.

The girl, the car, and the home can only be KEPT through diligence, hard work, and discipline.

for clarification, i read it like life, in your opinion, should be success, and thriving only for success.

There is also happiness-sort-of-stuff, and any kind of socioeconomic success isn't really prerequisite for the happiness.

I cant say, i have had the utmost discipline or even hard work.

Still, i have good life with forementioned "stuff". Not because of hard work, not because of tight discipline towards "success".

I find it hard to say how and why, but language barrier is winning.

Then again, i am disciplined guy in a sense. Also, i'm whack af. Girl loves, i love. Kids are happy.

ETA: and like i said, i prolly misread something. My bad.

I have no opinion for or against on the happiness of others.

I do see a formula that works for most. That is the formula I have followed and recommend.

I do get that life isn't rigid. Discipline does not have to equal rigidity.

Ok.

For me, i don't care nothing but the happiness. Other stuff is noise, kind of.

Happiness in large picture i guess. And this is something i think, needs discipline. Education. Procreation. Acceptance, then comes clarity.

heh

A. The house first, the car second, the wife last
B. The wife first, the house second, the car last
C. The car first, the house second, the wife last
D. The car first, the wife second, the house last
E. The house first, the wife second, the car last
F. The wife first, the car second, the house last

And if you choose to, explain the wisdom to your selection.


Be very careful with the WIFE part. If Perchance things head south, she gets the house and car and most of the money.

A lesson that took me 2 times to learn. Voice of experience...

Men don't really hit their stride / prime till 40s. That is when you are earning the most money and have life experience. On the other hand, women are hitting the wall in their 30s in terms of attractiveness. Keep this in mind...

Looking back, I'd say men should focus on their personal development and careers / wealth building. Worry about women / love last. Once you've established yourself financially, the hoes, I mean women will come.

With all that said, you can find the right woman early and they can be an asset. However, you really have to look hard.

Houses and cars are anchors. Stay single, live frugally.

Hummm,a hot young housekeeper to take care of your brood
and make your sammies...
I can assume from this post that I have been replaced when it
comes to making sammies for you?
Also,do hot flashes count as being hot seeing that I'm not young?

Love first. Or if you want to take the piss out of yourself, last


Rest of it is a lot of bollocks. We lose everything else in the end.

No particular order.

Balls, feet, dignity

Have the balls to do your own stuff in your own way and admit your own faults.

You would need two feet to stand on, on your own.

Have the dignity to accept it's not always easy and accept that no one stands in the same place as you (for better or worse).

A wife will come, a job will come, a house will come. These are just additions that without a solid core of your own build mean nothing at all.

That's how you get the wrong women....and eventually lose the house and the car.

I am a woman who met my husband at 17 and have been together 28 years.
My grandparents started dating in high school and were married until they passed at 83 and 84 years.
My parents started dating as sophomores in high school and are still together at 71 years old.
My sister and her husband started dating as juniors in high school and are 40 years old, still together.

We've all been lucky to build our lives together starting with nothing. In that, we know that our spouse is there for us for the right reasons, because of who we are, and not anything to do with money or status. Find someone where you both enjoy being together, share the same values, work well together, and then work to build your life together.

I see so many people today feel like they should wait until they are 30+ and by then they have already become adjusted to living alone, managing their own finances, and doing things their way. It's really, really hard for them to then join households, finances, and lives. It's so easy then to walk away instead of working through problems. The mentality that you have to spend your 20's single or you are going to miss out on your youth is a fallacy. Don't wait....life experiences are so much more enjoyable when you can share them with your best friend!!

We say the same thing about having kids. There is a biological reason we all hit puberty so early and start really falling in love in our late teens. It's not natural to wait until you are 40 to have kids. We had our son at 23 and I would never want to have waited longer. His grandparents were young enough to do a lot of things with him, take him on trips, play with him. He even had his great grandparents until he was around 13. He has memories of them that my niece will never have. My sis and bil thought they had to wait and wait and wait to have kids...everything had to be perfect. Have a perfect house, have specific money in the bank, etc. Someone told us when we were first starting that you can't wait....you will never have enough money, never be prepared enough. They were right.
