It’s only 344 words. The biggest word he uses is responsibility.
HERE’S A DUDE WHO GETS IT!!! HERE’S A DUDE WHO UNDERSTANDS WHAT I’VE BEEN FEELING, SAYING, YELLING ABOUT FOR SOOOOOOOO MANY YEARS NOW.
ENTITLEMENT IS OPTIONAL. ENTITLEMENT IS STUPID. ENTITLEMENT IS A CHOICE.
Man, that feels good…..(I mean, how many of us get pissed off when we have to interact with an entitled moron out there???)
And then I reread the article again.
And then I stopped fist pumping and read it another time.
It’s just 344 simple words but what he lays out as an argument about Entitlement are as complex as the Russian stacking dolls.
Unstack a sentence and it leads to even deeper mental rabbit holes.
What’s it have to do with real estate and investing?
EVERYTHING. Literally….EVERY DAMN THING.
Who among us has ever had to deal with an entitled tenant….or an entitled landlord client….or an entitled contractor…..or an entitled government beaurocrat? I mean, after all….doesn’t everyone have the Right to be Entitled?
The sad answer, according to Seth, is yes, you are entitled to your entitlement. But as with EVERYTHING in life, there is a cost to that entitlement since nothing is EVER FREE.
Imagine how much better your real estate dealings can be if we keep trying to understand how to be grateful and take off the blinders.
With this in mind, I’d like to close this article by saying how grateful I AM to you, the members of the platform and the private consulting Clients I work with each week, for allowing me to be a part of your effort, to be a part of building your net worth.
Truly, I am grateful. And Happy.
