    Yeah, worked their ass off. Yes this is true, but what about normal people who wnt to college and earn 100x less that amount? They too have worked their ass off.

    I used to be a professional footballer, and to be honest it was a lot easier than what you are making out. I just used to kick a football round a field for 90 minutes then go home and shag some desperate attention seeking slag.

    OP, can you give me a pep talk on becoming some asshole's baggage so I can just sit back and watch my bank account grow and spend someone else's money?

    Tips on spotting the rich ones so I can get that trap baby going?

    I do understand the OP, but people on here are always going to react negative to a position that seems to scold noobs for being noobs.

    Good, I noticed if you don't feel the pain of spending a lot of hours doing IM you shouldn't expect success. I used to try methods for 1 hour then say it doesn't work but when I worked for 1 and a half month I earned some money to continue growing.

    Yeah that is true however most of the time it's because of a dream. Students studying to become vets know they aren't going to be millionaires fast.

    If someone goes college hoping to get rich it's going to be a disappointment for them. There's 2 ways to get rich. Either have a talent such as singing, basketball etc or make yourself rich through business decisions.

    Having a successful business leads to riches. Not being a dinky lawyer down the local firm.

    Supply and demand, anyone with decent work ethic can finish college, it's pretty safe, I know idiots who have degrees. However not anyone can just become a athlete, or musician, or actor, it takes a certain level of insanity to have that desire and focus, even when everyone else tells you you will fail.

    I mean think of it, if you go to school everyone will pat you on the back saying you're a smart guy, but people who want to be an entertainer or athlete are constantly are told they'll never make it. Years upon years of everyone doubting you, it takes mental strength that most people just don't have.

    By the way good thead op, I myself am guilty of focusing on the end goal, and not as much focus into the steps to get there.

    Nice thread, true facts. Only when we fail we think and when we think we get the method to reach success.

    I agree with the OP. One point to add here is that football generates so much money for TV stations and advertising partners. So footballers bring people to stadiums and in front of TVs so they deserve these salaries.
