Me: This is one of those posts which I felt was extremely insightful in its wisdom on how the modern male in Western developed countries should be living his life. As always, this type of advice should never be used as gospel and not questioned but to be critically reviewed for its practically, usefulness, and value.
The reason why I felt this video is so powerful is because it tells us young men still in our 20s how to avoid some of the biggest traps which can sap away our resources. In our 20s, whether we have been to college or graduate school, most men are very busy at trying to achieve, win, and climb the corporate ladder in making a name for themselves in the world. We have the energy, ambition, and motivation to try to, as Steve Jobs put it, “put a dent in the universe”. Whether we ultimate succeed in whatever endeavor we have set for ourselves, that is still need to be proven. However there are some clear decisions we make which will make us far less likely to succeed.
On a side note, I would like to state that in many polls done on people in their 40s, they would say that the #1 decision which will determine the quality of their later years, whether it is in the area of health, finances, or relationships is the person they choose to marry, is they ever do get married ever at all. One’s decision on who will be one’s life partner is far greater in determining one’s happiness and success in life than almost anything else. We find from many reports that divorce is not just an emotional and mental negative event, but also for one’s finances too. So besides the tips that Tim will tell you, I wanted to give 4 tipes of my own.
- Tip #1: Be extremely careful on who you choose to spend your life with. Your emotional health and financial health will depend on it later on.
- Tip #2: It is important to realize that the two most common causes for personal bankruptcy is a major health issue racking up healthcare costs or divorce.
- Tip #3: Having a child is extremely expensive, and be wise about having children.
- Tip #4: Things become harder to do as one gets older so go ahead in your younger years, go crazy and have fun, and try to reach for one’s dreams. If you want to do something, do it now. You will definitely regret on doing trying it out later in life if you don’t try and go for what you want.
