So they do things like, I mean like Warren Buffet. Like doesn't believe in working hard. Warren Buffet says my investment strategy borders on sloth, he said when other people are trading stocks all the time at work, he makes like one big trade every two years. It appears to be slothfullness. But you do more thinking, thinking is what. It's kinda like Connor McGregor. In that fight with Aldo, where he knocked out Aldo in what, seven, 37 seconds I think it was. He came out and he interviewed, and he said, you remember what he said? – [Man] What'd he say? – [Man 2] I'd like to thank no one? – [Man 3] Absolutely nobody. – No about precision. – [Man] Precision beats power. – Precision beats power. (humming in agreement) So I was like, you got people, power they try to work hard and. (play yelling) And you got other people that are precision. You only need to knock someone out, you only need one precise hit, right there. You don't have to go 12 rounds. You don't want to go 12 rounds.
The goal in life, is less input, more output. The goal of life is to design a car, less gas, more miles. Every time I see people glorifying hard work, the only good thing about hard work is physical, manual labor. When I used to live on a farm, it'd make you strong. So there is some benefit, but people working hard in a business setting. In terms of stressing themselves out, waking up at four in the morning, going to bed at nine, you're literally depleting your adrenal glands, spiking your cortisol, and you're probably not working smart. There's only so many hours in a day. You can't outwork 3.5 billion people. You think, the top 10 people, if they worked 24 hours a day, how many hours could they work? Maximum, combined, 240, right? The bottom 3.5 million, I mean, billion people, if they just work one hour a day. Would work 3.5 billion hours a day. 3.5 billion, versus 240, but the 240 hour group makes more than the 3.5 billion, if they only worked one hour. So this proves my point, the fact that people argue this, I will tell you a very powerful skill, that I would recommend you learn to read, logic.
Logic is dead boy, people debate. You should take debate, debate is a very powerful skill. 'Cause it forces you to hone your skills of thinking. Critical thinking is another way to think. I can decide for myself usually. When somebody gives a piece of advice, whether it's garbage or not. And most advice is garbage. My advice to most people, if I could go back in time. Is literally, if I could brainwash myself. Clean out almost nothing people say is true. Just remember that, almost nothing. People say money doesn't make you happy. Which is an incomplete statement. It's not that simple, money in a sense won't make you happy. In another sense it will make you very happy. You know people, like I said education system was basically all built wrong. Even simple things like I was saying. Giving your kids an allowance to do chores. Why would you do that? They're apart of a family unit. Why should you have to do that? The parents don't get paid for doing it. And heres a crazier one Joel Salatin used to tell me, just simple societal things that make no sense.
He said, why when parents punish their kids, do they give them chores? Like oh, you have to do the dishes. He said, so what you've now trained your kids brain, is that work, like maintaining the house is punishment. See you know what the Amish used to do, a guy like Joel Salatin, this is the craziest thing I've ever seen. Talk about a mind fuck, for parents to do to their kids. In a positive way, is that I was once, I stayed with this guy Sam Chup. And his son forgot to get the eggs from the chickens. Or no, he forgot to milk the cow. That's what is was, so he came back, he was like six years old, and Sam says to his son, he says, you know you really hurt that cow, 'cause it hurts when they don't get milked. And the son's like, oh I'm sorry. So the dad goes, you can't come with me and your brothers on the construction crew today, you gotta stay here with your mom. And I remember his son fell on the ground crying, like please, take me! Because young kids want to be a part.
In society we've destroyed peoples creativity by punishing, don't punish with doing stuff. Punish by taking it away. Be like okay, the parents what they should do is, if you're good I'll let you start a business, if you're bad you have to only play video games while your brother makes a 100,000 while 14. – That's good! – Parents complain that their kids don't do enough, I'm like I know why they don't do enough. 'Cause you're a bad parent in terms of understanding motivation. If you have any brains you do exactly what I say. You got three kids, each of them you give a business, help them, you can help them. Make sure they start making a little bit of money. Don't give any of the other kids money. Then take the kid who's making a hundred bucks a week, and take him to the candy store, take him to the toy store. He comes home with all, and the other two kids are sittin' there they got one video game they got from grandma. (laughing) They're ready to buy the other one, and one of the kids is just making more than all of 'em.
All of a sudden, you're gonna have three entrepreneurs. Gotta use a little reverse psychology. – [Man 4] I like that. – [Man 3] It's good. – You can do that for adults, that's why people saying that materialism isn't good. Like I show Lamborghini's are morons, because I got more people motivated to read books then anyone is history. – True. – Because a lot of people go, a lot of people are motivated by material things. People are so dumb to think that I don't get high off or moral and supply. I understand how to use the supply. You know what I'm saying? I don't go in my garage and rub my cars and all of that, people think I'm this materialistic guy, I'm like no I'm out thinking you, you're slow. You're too slow. I have a goal, the goal is to motivate people toward a certain end. In this case, it's an end that's good for society, people still criticize it. Because people too slow, but whenever they're too slow, if it wasn't for the do you remember this?
The stupidity of others, you wouldn't be so rich. – [Man 4] Hell yeah! – If every 14 year old was sharp, you would be competing with every 14 year old would try to be on stage. Most 14 year olds, they're trying to figure out, you know God knows what. So stay ahead of the curve, it's not hard anymore. It's getting easier, it's a better world now. – It's true. – People are getting more followers, less leaders. Everybody becomes a follower, that's great, you can become the leader.
The top 10 men in the world make more money than 3.5 billion people at the bottom. What do the ten do that the rest of the 3.5 billion people in the world do?
