WE USUALLY GET WHAT WE DESERVE
Back when I was gambling professionally, it seemed like everyone had an opinion on which casino was rigged. I never really thought that, but I also didn’t really think that I was winning as much as I was supposed to. To test this, I recorded every single session I played for over a year. Guess what? I was within a fraction of one percent from where I was supposed to be statistically. I learned that not only were the casinos not rigged, I wasn’t very good at mentally aggregating lots of independent events.
I think that in real life, we all have a natural inability or unwillingness to accept that we generally receive what we deserve. Before I get into this, though, I’ll say that it definitely isn’t true all of the time. I offer the idea here just a useful tool and framework, not to pass judgement. For example, I know people who have lost close family members, people who have been raped, and people who have been affected by other horrible things. I don’t think that they deserve those things or earned them in some way. I think they’re an unfortunate side effect of the chaos and variance of life, which is otherwise a good thing.
When I was around twenty, I knew for a fact that I would become rich by the age of twenty-five. Twenty five was really old and I knew that I was special, so it made perfect sense to me that I’d be rich by then. I put in a moderate amount of effort, and made moderate progress towards my goal, but didn’t really even come close! When I turned twenty five, I was at least a little bit surprised that I wasn’t a millionaire yet.
I’m still not a millionaire, but I’m not surprised about it anymore. I’ve seen people work harder than me and work smarter than me and become rich. I’ve seen the dedication it takes, and I’ve seen how that compares to what I have typically put in.
I think I’ve gotten about what I deserve.
I’ve done some interesting things, worked hard some of the time, and have made enough money to support a simple lifestyle that I like a lot. Strange path, but it seems about right to me.
Last year I spent two months getting back into pickup. I knew it would be hard, but in the back of my head I thought, “Hey, I’m a pretty awesome guy and I used to be really good a this. I bet it’s going to go really well.” It went okay, which is probably what you’d expect when you balance those positive with the negatives of me being rusty, naturally introverted, and in full on hermit-programmer mode.
On a more positive note, I think I do a pretty good job of being positive and treating people well, and when I think of how lucky I am to have such great friends and family, I think that I’ve again gotten what I deserve.
HERE IS A CONTEST TO GET WHAT YOU DESERVE…
GREAT CONTEST HUH?
You can adopt this mindset and think of it in a few different ways. The harsh reality is that if something in your life isn’t where you want it to be, it’s most likely your fault. We’re all dealt a different set of cards, and I think that most of us are old enough now that we’ve been given a chance to do something with them. So if you were born poor and haven’t put in enough effort to make money, I think it’s time to stop blaming your upbringing and start taking responsibility. Of course, if you were born poor, are still poor, and don’t care, that’s totally fine, too. You got what you deserved and you’re happy with it.
