Haha Jeffy is pretty rude but it's more like he doesn't respect people who don't give their own honest effort, since he spent some time to give this guy some good advice and then the guy didn't acknowledge it. Often people like to ask for advice just to get some attention and then do whatever they were going to do anyway.

Best of luck though OP, remember you're a sentient conscious being and you can control your own actions. You know what you need to do, just stop thinking and do it. When you stop pretending you're rich you'll also realize who your true friends are.

Well, first off... YOU'RE NOT RICH. You aren't even making a quarter million. STFU, you're a faggot. 

And secondly... shit's not going to fly? Why not? Oh right... cause you're a faggot. GTFO with this bullshit. At first I thought okay, this guy is legitimately asking for advice. Then you get solid advice, books to read, etc etc from the people here, and you say "SHTS NOT GUN FLY HURR DURR" dismissing it outright. Fuck off. 
Hey man, I don't care if you're the pick-up god of the universe, Mr. The Shit himself, don't call people names. There was nothing wrong with the OP's post. And even if there was, is this a good way to be growing your business, by calling people faggots?

Your behaviors stem from your beliefs.  This is always how the world works, and your reality will begin to reflect that.

You believe that you're making too much money.  Therefore, you're going to subconsciously engage in activities that will bring you to the level in line with your expectations and beliefs.  Therefore, you'll spend money you know you really shouldn't because you actually believe that you shouldn't be making this money.  As you wrote yourself, you don't think you deserve it.

While I don't recommend identifying with your wealth and adding it to your personality, there is absolutely no wrong in accepting that you live in abundance.  Identify with the notion that you deserve all of the wealth that you have.  Treat it with respect.  

If you don't and you truly believe that you are making too much money, then you will subconsciously, through your thoughts and resultant actions, create a reality where you have less money.  Bill Gates didn't make "too much money" in his eyes.  If a billion was "too much", he never would have made the other 59.  Recognize your deservedness in achieving this abundance!

That may be true. But he could have some compassion instead off coming off like an enraged teenager. Frankly, I had been considering a bootcamp for a while and I was impressed with Tyler and his business. But Jeffy's behavior in this thread has made me reconsider.

An anecdote: I went to dinner with my aunt, who is very poor, a few months ago. She mentioned, "I was employee of the week last week." Of course such a thing is completely off radar... who cares? But she mentioned it again like 30 minutes later. So I finally acknowledger her and said, "that's great." Sometimes you just have to give people what they're looking for. I didn't yell at my Aunt and call her a faggot for wanting attention for getting a meaningless piece of paper from her boss at her pointless job. 

Sometimes I wonder what an objective outside observer would think of RSD. Sometimes I think, "enlightened group of people looking to improve themselves", and sometimes I think, "a bunch of immature teenagers who never grew up." 

     A self-help guy at another company went completely off his rocker over shit like this a while back. He claimed to become an "enlightened spiritual genius" and as a result, saw how everyone was basically stuck in ego self-validation unwilling-to-help-themselves mode and started behaving like Jeffy did here 95% of the time. A lot of loyal customers left.

That's just the name of the game when you're in the self help industry, sorry. If you don't like it, try becoming a rock star or something.

More importantly, I find the issue of how money plays into game to be fascinating as I'm in a similar situation to the OP: in my 20s, pulling in 100K+, and trying to figure out how to work my life around that. So I found the OP's post to be a useful and interesting perspective. He helped me much more than Jeffy did in this thread. 

For instance, I found his comment about how when women saw his BMW/apartment, "everything changed." If you really can get extra attraction from those things, I find it interesting from a game perspective. If we're to be anything like a scientific community, then we should change our theories based on the facts, right? "Money doesn't matter. Looks don't matter."  Clearly these are simplifications.

For people who have some money (me, OP) or some looks (not me), it would be nice to know how to best use them, don't you think? Does everyone have to be fat, bald, old, and short and run on pure personality, or could we possibly take a holistic view of the factors that attract women?

 To the OP - If you're an investment banker, you should know the difference between an income statement and a balance sheet. Act like it.

Check out the book "Your Money or Your Life" by Vikki Robbin and Joe Dominguez.  Gives a powerful action oriented system for figuring out what to spend money on that is actually fulfilling.

Thing is Jeffy took the time to post a legitimate answer and then the OP ignored it. Haha then the next post Jeffy gave some tough love or vented his anger however you wanna say it. Anyway, ultimately it doesn't really matter.

Why didn't you acknowledge your aunt the first time??? Anyway, pretty sure Jeffy wouldn't have called your aunt a faggot haha.

Anyway, who cares about RSD and RSDN drama. Are you getting out there and meeting women? That's the most important thing, not PUA gossip. Not observing whether instructors act the right way on the forum.

Since you make so much, you should request a vacation and go to Africa or some part of the world that really needs help. Go there and give them a hand for a week. Go volunteer, go do something good man. That way you will appreciate what you have. If I had that kind of money, going to Africa would be so awesome. I know Tyler went there, it's on his youtube videos.

I know exactly what you mean, EXACTLY. I'm in a very similar position to you, i.e. family has helped you to get where you are. 

You know what you're problem is? You're earning more money than you feel that you deserve to be earning.

That is what separates you and me, I know I deserve it.

Think about that.
