Life Is A Lottery

Life Success =

High Income, Net Worth, Wealth, Power,
Status in the Macro Dominance Hierarchy

The 2 best predictors of long term Life Success are
-IQ/Intelligence
-Energy/Industriousness

IQ = 100% Luck

Energy = Heavily Determined By Luck
Your IQ is entirely determined by factors outside your control; your genetics, and your early childhood environment.

Genetics = Luck

Early Childhood Environment = Luck
Your Energy Levels are heavily determined by your genetics (100% Luck).

At minimum, to have High Energy Levels, you need to NOT get the genetics to be wrecked by a terrible illness at a young age.
Energy Levels are also determined by your Diet & Exercise (these are within your control; NOT luck).
Life Success is primarily determined by Inteligence and Energy Levels.

Intelligence (IQ) = 100% Luck

Energy Levels =
Heavily Determined By Luck (Genetics) (Say 50%)

As such....Life Success....is primarily determined by...Luck

NOBODY WANTS THIS TO BE TRUE

But It Is True

People Perceive A Thing As Being More Valuable

If They Perceive That It Is Scarce

Lower Supply Implies Greater Value

This Is The 'Scarcity Principle'

(See Robert Cialdini's Book 'Influence')
One Consequences Of This...

After you end a relationship with a woman, you will perceive her as being more valuable, than you did when you were with her.

Why?

Scarcity...
As soon as your relationship with her is over, you cannot have her anymore (regardless of whether you left her or she left you), so you view her as being more Scarce than you did back when you were with her

...so you view her as being more Valuable.

Believing America's Capitalist Economy is a Meritocracy

is like believing that 'Unconditional Love' exists.

One can easily verify that a significant percentage of Rich Americans made their money via illicit means.

Notice the word 'Illicit', not 'Illegal'.
America is a society where bankers who manufacture mortgage loans they know are going to go bad get paid more than nurses who heal the sick.
America is a society where the executives of pharmaceutical corporations that sell opioids that destroy more lives than they save, are paid 100x as much as Firefighters who save lives.

Risk Taking Psychology
A life with zero risk is neither possible nor desirable.

Risk can be managed. It can be moved from one place to another. It can be increased or decreased in amount, but it can never be eliminated.
1) Types of Bets:

There are different types of opportunities or ‘bets’ that will appear in life.

THREAD:

Biochemistry and Hierarchies:
Your brain closely tracks what your relative status is in the hierarchy you live in, and assumes that if you are low status you are in danger (causing your cortisol levels to rise) and if you are high status you are safe (causing your cortisol levels to fall).
The assumption that life at the top of the hierarchy is safe and life at the bottom of the hierarchy is dangerous is an accurate assumption in most hierarchies most of the time (see the ‘Life and Death Stakes’ section above).
