"Hard work is for suckers"
Not to give off the wrong impression, I have an enormous amount of respect for those who "man-up" and go to work every day to support their families. Having a strong work ethic is definately a positive and i'm not trashing that idea.
The purpose of this post is to put things into context, create a sense of perspective if you will.
There are literally millions(huge number when you visualize it) of people going to work every single day and getting a paycheck in some form. Be it weekly, bi-weekly, time clock, commission, tips, these people are performing some function that they most likely hate or at least would certainly not do otherwise for cash. Money makes the world go round, money talks, bullshit walks. You've heard it all before.
Well, I am currently one of the teaming monotonously preouccupied mass off suckers that clocks in every day and cruise controls it into the weekend. I make about $2500 take home a month and I'm doing something that I pretty much loath. I don't even have the energy to shadowbox in my cube anymore. Fortunately an end is in sight as I am buying a place in upstate NY and will be leaving my current place of employ.
I will not do something that I dread anymore. I'm going to get a bartending gig, go to school, and play internet poker in NY. I'm going to think and dream and plan and grind out a sweeeet life for myself and the misses. I want a lot more from life than a few memories sandwiched in between a bunch of boring waste. The cash is simply not worth wasting away the prime of my life.
There are people out there with so much money that it becomes a non object. They do things for fulfillment, accomplishment, and pleasure. The reason these people work, mostly, is because they are driven internally to accomplish the goals that they have set. They want to change things, improve, and be remembered. Well Fuck if I don't want the same thing. I want to travel to festivals, concerts, historic sights and events, exotic cultures. And I don't want to have to stress about the dough. Fuck money, I'm gonna have a ton one day.
Right now i'm pretty much fucking broke. I'm investing all I have into this property, supplies to fix it, lawn tractor, new furniture etc. And i'm borrowing money on top of that. F' it, balls to the wall bitch.
I'm getting slightly consistent, and increasingly confident in my online poker money-making skills. If I can build my bankroll up to a few grand I'm definately going to invest more energy into this venture.
What is more valuable than time?
I'm off to plot my ascention into greatness.
