There are obviously time sacrifices in being an ardent follower of RSD and game but do the benefits outweigh the costs? 

In my opinion it is worth it without a doubt...and I think it helps people in their wider life more than it hinders them although you have provided opposing examples.

Also bear in mind that different individuals' goals are different. Some people love the uphill struggle and challenge of making money and climbing the ladder...others find their bliss/passion and throw themselves into it, and they are content to live financially humbly regardless.

Further...those guys you know...their stories are not over yet ;)

Did you ever think about how the fat people who sue McDonalds for them getting fat are total retards? You remind me of them, no offence. But RSD unlike McDonalds actually does a lot more good than harm. 

With that said,  I think this "go out every night hit it hard!" mantra can be easily misconstrued to play hard don't work at all! People need to remember the instructors get paid for going out, you don't. Still though, RSD teaches a lot of good shit and has changed my life profoundly for the better, but if people put 100% faith in what RSD says over their own well being, they are just utterly stupid either way. Too much of anything is a bad thing.

So this is something completely new in society!
It has nothing to do with people that leave studies/ work to become professional actors/actresses, nothing to do with people leaving their jobs to become:
- "Professional" (some sport) players
- "Professional" (some game) players
- Start their own "businesses"
- "Professional" writers
- "Investors"

Now with this new movie about cyclists, maybe people will leave their jobs / studies to ride in the opposite direction of the cars and die in accidents
yay

Instead of needing $XXXX.xx a month, you'll only need $XXX.xx. (This also improves your health, because you are more social and not isolated/"independent")

Next, stop buying sh*t you don't need. That should save you a couple hundred dollars.

Then you won't need a "Career" or "Job".
So you live like that or just read on the net?
Both
Ive been homeschooled since 13, so I never got peer pressured (into doing anything that doesnt benefit me).

I noticed alot of successful people doing things the "Hard Way", like living out of their cars, which when you think about it is actually the easy way.

 Truth is that losers can get girls.. and even sometimes some hotties. But they can't land a 10 and they can't date anything above an 8. Actually they probably can't date anything with self esteem, goals, and drive. 

But yeah, once you realize you don't need material status to get laid it changes your motivation. Once you realize that you don't need shit to feel good, you change your motivation. It's really important to set some values, goals, and personal standards when learning game. Getting laid wasn't about becoming a loser, it was about becoming even more awesome.

I'm sorry but this is absolutely hilarious. I seriously hope you look at your priorities soon because your post produced auditory laughter from myself and the people in this very room right now.

The only thing I'll let you have from your post is your thoughts on social capital, but not even to the way you present it. Being social and having friends is important. Period. If you think of building social capital so you can get rides without using your own car or crash at people's pads, that's not only outcome dependent - you're attached the outcome of having friends, which is where you threw in "so you can:" - it's also irresponsible and just plain sad.

Then you go on to say you won't need a career or a job.

Are you kidding me?

That is actually some depressing shit. Like, I actually feel depressed because you feel that way.

A career is what you do for the rest of your life. It's a source of financial stability but it is primarily a choice and symbolizes what you will focus on and contribute to society. That's what a career is. A job is a dead-end gig working the fryers for some week-to-week pay while you live under your parents(or in your case, your friends) roof.

You won't need a career or a job? Lol -- you're living in a world of ideals and it's absolutely hilarious.

As you grow older, you'll realize that the goal is to become more independent from all sorts of things - from your parents, from working the 9-5 or the graveyards, from society, and generally from whatever you want to be independent from. Your goal shouldn't to be forming a shallow friend circle so that you can be more dependent on them. That's just disturbing. I'm sorry if you can't see that yet.
