    Because it indicates lack of self-esteem. You don't consider yourself worthy enough to attribute all of your success to yourself, so you give away part or all of it to someone or something else.

    You can still do good. I'm a loner too, yet that hasn't been an obstacle - a strength if nothing else. As I said in one of my previous posts, you have all that extra time you don't send on socializing. Of course, the internet has a lot to do with that.

    I think the key is to do something that suits your personality. No point being in customer services if you don't like talking to people. There is a program that I suggest you look into, no need to get into it deeply, but it's called Wealth Dynamics. More specifically give Your Life Your Legacy: An Entrepreneur Guide to Finding Your Flow by Roger Hamilton. It's a great business book in general.

    Actually it's because I'm cognitively neurotic and highly self-critical... if you wanna play psych I could go on for hours

    You don't need luck to be rich. You only need luck to be hugely rich.

    To be rich, all you need is to earn more than you need. Most of us on this BB are rich. We earn enough to have somewhere to live, a large choice of food to eat and have a computer with an internet connection that opens us to almost all the knowledge in the world.

    What more do we need?

    Fair enough. No, I'm not gonna play a game I can't win.

    Very true. Furthermore, having lots of stuff limits you. Managing a big wealth is a hard and stressful work. I don't think most people who drool over huge riches consider that. Most of them would go insane with that "luck" (how many lives have been destroyed by winning a lottery?).

    I think what makes a guy rich is discipline.

    If you work hard, save your money (leaving some aside for enjoying life), and keep at it, you'll become at least financially stable.

    Basically procrastinating spending, and realising that the desperation to spend is merely to feed today's wants, and will delay tomorrow's.

    And to make up for the lack of love from your father you spend time at the YMCA? If we want to play psych we could speak to a real professional not someone that once did a side course a few years ago

    You should probably get new friends, the most likely people to murder you are people you know.

    It's not like I stopped studying psych post leaving college, human psychology is a BIG part of the job I undertake (though I'm not giving care so I don't need to be licensed). I regularly read journals, research, books (et al) as it helps me better cater experiences for the needs of an audience. In regards to psychology (non-medical) I would say I'm a professional (of sorts). Anyone wanting to get into UX Design would be better off studying psych than traditional design if you ask me

    Hope you manage to squeeze in a bit of practical application with all that reading and listening to of podcasts you're always telling us you do.

    Indeed I am! The great thing about podcasts are that I can listen while I work... and they say men can't multi-task

    I think it is the IQ, because when you are intelligent enough, you have the capacity to think perfectly in getting your business or career to be more enhanced.

    is there only successful people here?

    how would you define successful?

    anyway, I say nature - and my opinion has nothing to do with money.

    not just IQ, but also: how far are you willing to go to get rich?

    After all, there are alot more people going the legal way then hovering on the edge, making the profits there higher

    Integrity is the most important--and most commonly shared--character trait of the truly successful.
    Without Integrity, one's Vision is faulty, so one's goals are misguided, and even "success" in the venture fails to enrich life and increase peace.
