There's a real problem with the following piece of advice: work hard.
What's the problem with working hard?
Working hard is subjective. What's hard to you may be easy to me.
Time is tangible, hard is subjective.
Time is real and “hard work” is only in the mind.
So if you want more accomplished in a day, you put in more time in a day.
When you want to get more accomplished, you work more.
You don't “work harder” because that's not real, you work more.
You don't put in some “extra hard” in a day, you put in extra time.
Time is what is required of you if you ever want to create something of value, as this video clearly explains…
(Below you can read the complete text of the video)
I just posted the Five Years of Pride happy birthday article.
And in the comments for that article, I got a lot of comments saying… Congratulations on all your success. You deserve it because you worked so hard.
And that statement is half true. I do deserve it. But not because I worked hard. Because I didn't work hard.
I simply worked more and did not quit.
Hard work had nothing to do with it. What is hard about typing on the computer? Nothing is hard about what I do.
And I keep saying it. And you guys don't want to believe me. You think I'm lying to you about working hard when I don't work hard.
Chopping trees is a hard job. That would be hard. But I don't chop trees. I type words on a computer.
And if my job was to chop trees, chopping trees harder would not be beneficial because I would burn out faster.
I would find a way that I could chop trees efficiently, not harder.
Because I would want to get through the day and every single day and not be burnt out.
They say that success is a marathon and not a sprint. And it's correct.
If you want success tomorrow, well, you're shit out of luck.
Because even working hard is not going to give you success that working consistently will give you. Consistent work is what pays off.
And again I get these guys e‑mailing me saying… I've been at it for two months, six months, a year and I haven't seen success yet.
And I say, of course you haven't, you fucking retard.
It takes consistency. It does not happen overnight. It does not happen fast like that.
You know how much I made the first year? I made zero. The first year.
You know how much I made the second year? $15,000 U.S., second year.
It does not happen overnight.
And hard work again ‑‑ hard work has nothing to do with it.
What is hard work anyway? Somebody types harder than you? Somebody makes YouTube videos harder than you?
See, hard work is just a way to not do any actual work. It's just a thing you say… Oh, I'm a hard worker, bro. I work so hard. He just works harder than you. You're just jealous because he works harder than you.
How does anybody work harder than you? You're either working or not working.
Somebody works more than you. Nobody works harder than you.
You hear this bullshit about people in shape, and people accused them of steroids, and some dorks will say…
“No, he just works hard in the gym. He just does dumbbell curls really hard and that's how he got that physique.
Wasn't because he in the gym every day for 10 years.
Wasn't because he took steroids, it's because he did fucking dumbbell curls harder than anyone else.”
But I've illustrated my point that hard work is ‑‑ it's a fairytale. It's not real. It's not how you get success.
You put in the work every day and in every way you are consistent. There's nothing hard about it.
Even if your job is chopping trees, you don't want to chop harder because then you want have energy to chop the next tree.
You want to find a steady pace and chop consistently.
So many of these guys give up. They work hard, they work hard for a month or two.
They don't see anything and then they give up.
I worked consistent for five years.
I told you I made $15,000 the second year. That's a joke. That's a joke of money, I could spend that tonight.
That could just disappear from my account and I wouldn't even ‑‑ I wouldn't even know. I wouldn't even notice it.
Hard work is for suckers. Consistent work is for winners.
Be the winner. Be consistent.
Forget about when the dorks say work hard.
Just work more.
Until next time.
PS – Consistent content is the key to making money online. Step one is Badnet, step two is consistent content, and step three….? As the girls in Thailand like to say, up to you.
