That's exactly the mindset that led me to do so much traveling while being relatively young. After studying so much history, I figured that deferred gratification plan was a complete hoax on the middle class. No risk, no reward. It's not too bad to delay a dream for practical reasons for a year or so, but not decades. You end up behaving and thinking like a scared little hamster and by the time you retire, you're probably on so many meds and can't even get your dick up (that's if you're still alive). You've pretty much given up the best years of your life working for the man and conforming to society's insecure and fear-based expectations. No thanks.

Who did the voice for this video?

EDIT I can see Alan Watts in the title, didn't know if he was the animator or not.

What best years are you talking about and why are they the best?
There are no set best years in a man's life I believe. One's best years can be his 60s.
There are other options. You don't have to work for the man and you don't have to conform.
It seems to me that you only see two options: travel/fun or social robot.

RE: The great thing in life is coming
So what's the moral of this story ? Don't go to college or university ? Edcuation is still the best protection against poverty, no matter where you are. The salaries of the unskilled workforce has been declining steadily, in stark contrast to the salaries of the educated professionals.

People always had to work hard to achieve sth. in life, in fact even harder in the past than today. A few clever people like Roosh will figure out a way to combine pleasure and work, but how many people can do that ? For every Roosh, there are 100 failed Roosh's who would love to travel the world and bang the local women but end up living in their parents' basement yanking off to Asian porn sites.


Most guys I know who skipped higher education and enjoyed the good life in their early and mid twenties are now struggling in their early thirties. In fact a lot of them have even troubble getting a decent girl because women in Germany are well educated and will rather stay alone and become bitter than be together with some uneducated, broke bum.

You don't need to earn two PhDs but you've got to invest at least some time and effort if you want to live a half decent life.

RE: The great thing in life is coming
I started traveling at age 22, which was.....DING DING DING....the same age I graduated college (undergrad). I am one for higher education. Everyone cannot be a business owner.

Of course, I am biased. My undergrad degree is in Math/Computer Science, so I have always been well above the poverty level. Plus, I waited until my 30's to have a kid. That was a lot of years blowing money on out-of-town trips pussy-hunting :-)

No, a shitload of money is the best protection against poverty.

If I had millions of dollars, I'd live off of the interest forever.

Look at Paris Hilton, dumber than box of rocks (laughable education) yet she never has to worry about poverty.

Hello.

Point taken.

She appears dumb for what it's worth.

RE: The great thing in life is coming
Roosh, have you ever listened to Alan Watts' epic 6 CD audio series, Out of Your Mind?

It's pretty good. He rambles on too long on a few topics, but on the whole, it's great.

Your youth, looks, health and mobility decline as you get older. Like Urbannerd said, he traveled in his 20s and it was a great time for him. Same with me. I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm glad I've realized this sovereignty and freedom earlier in life. I have no expectations and no disappointments now that I've realized my wildest dreams. That said, I am more emboldened to take on greater risks and realize greater rewards.

Roosh talks about this pinnacle wrt banging chicks in a recent post on his blog.

Like the video suggests, the sooner you realize that the time is now, the better off you'll be. That's what I was getting at.

I've traveled a lot and I love traveling, it's one of my favourite things to do.

Spending your 20s on traveling is indeed a great risk.

I don't believe in this carpe diem thing. I believe in balance, you can build up a nice bankroll in your 20s and travel in your thirties. I see your point though.

You say that looks, health mobility decline as you get older. How old? Fifty? Yeah.

Looks, health - if you live well and you're lucky you won't have problems in these departments at least until your 40.

Mobility - what do you mean? I don't get it.

IT is not the good, it is not the evil....IT IS MY WAY!

just do whatever the fuck you want to do in life...mix it up which ever way. Knowing that everything has an opportunity cost.

Then execute.

This is like the "money over bitches" nonsense. why cant you mix the two together?

If you want to focus on one over the other...best of luck.

I think it's easier to build up the bankroll in your thirties over your twenties, but maybe that's just me.

Are you American?

I ask because people in different countries tend to think differently about these matters. Americans are in a whole different league when it comes to work/life expectations.

We don't have a culture that values travel and it tends to be easier to do that here--professionally and socially--when you're younger.

I'm not American and I don't think like the people in my home country.

Why do you think it is easier to build up a bankroll in you thirties over your twenties?

Your biggest asset in your 20s is time not money. The vast majority of people in their 20s are broke. Most employers have this catch-22 where you are not hireable because you're inexperienced but you don't have experience because you're young. In the anglo-saxon world, you start off low and work your way up. Once you have age and some experience, you begin moving up the ladder. For most people, this doesn't begin to happen in earnest until your early 30s. Before that, young people move around from job to job, just barely getting by, some go to further school or try different career paths or freelance.

Your 20s are your time to do you if you plan to get married and have children later on. Once you have kids, it's a wrap for the most part. You start thinking less selfishly and think of ways to provide for your seeds.

That's how it works in America.

You should use that time in your 20s, if you can, to travel and explore things (taking risks). That's pretty much an investment that pays its dividends in immediate satisfaction and insights you can draw on later on. You can build a global network, challenge yourself in ways you never imagined, and learn more about the world and grow.
