Want to make BIG money? EnTER The Billion Dollar Boys Club?
And live balanced life?
SO WHAT ARE THE SECRETS GREAT CEOs USE TO LIVE A BALANCED LIFE?
Let me be honest with you: Balance is for Losers.
- Get Ready To Sacrifice Everything,
- Drink Piss,
- Work 100+ Hours A Week,
- And Lose Everything In Between.
Last week I spoke about Money. How to make it. Why to Make it. What not to do. Given the response on my E-mails and the number of reads, it seemed to generate a lot of passionate debate, with the resounding voices claiming: This shit is legit.
Today, I’ll talk about something else that’s legit:
Your programming around balance
It’s killing your dreams of achieving God Mode. And to be frank, all the shit you’ve been reading here and all the self-development you’ve been doing and affirmations you’ve been writing along the way to be the next Elon Musk (yes, we have a weird affection for that guy’s insane work ethic at AZOTH.) are going to the shitters with that programming of yours.
You see, your whole life you’ve been programmed around balance. In school, if you did homework for 3 hours, you get a lunch break and can play kickball outside for an hour, if you cleaned your room and went to Church on Sundays, your parents would allow you to sleepover at a friends house, after a long season of playing ball, you’d get a few weeks off, after eating clean for a week, you could splurge a bit on the weekend.
It’s how we humans operate.
After all, a bit of “downtime” after bouts of hard work works wonders in the micro to maintain equilibrium.
I have sold 20+ companies. I have sacrificed my health, my family, my social life, my mental state and everything in between. Are you ready to do the same?
If you go hard all the time, you’ll burn out. If you see the same girl every day, no matter how cute she is, you’ll get bored, if you eat the same food each morning, you’ll slowly start to hate it. Our brains don’t want the same experience over and over again, it’s not hardcoded for it, it will repel against it. Facts.
But here’s the thing: it works, but only in the micro.
Let’s take a bird’s eye view and look at it from a zoomed lens on the macro level:
What do you remember about Steve Jobs? Computers. Einstein? Physics. Mozart? Music.
Sorry if you think if this is sad (yes, it kind of is now I think about it…) but life is binary just like this: black or white. We don’t remember people for their times off, or for the fact that they were great “multi-taskers”. We remember them for one thing they did, and that’s it.
And…rightfully so. If you look at the life of any of these men, you’ll see that an insane amount of time they spent was working on their craft. Insane, we’re talking on average of 10,000+ hours doing the same thing over, and over, and over again.
(Recommended Read: Malcolm Gladwell’s “Tipping Point.”)
You see, with balance you can maintain the status quo. But that’s the real problem. It just helps with basic function and maintaining homeostasis, avoiding boredom, and works with your brain’s wiring. But function and maintaining your sanity & status quo is all it does.
It doesn’t allow you to make quantum leaps.
Now, my goal of writing all this isn’t to make you feel bad or to point out how some people are superior to you: it is to point out how human nature by default programs us in a way that is not conducive to massive success, and it is on us to break free from this conditioning if we want to make history.
You’re not supposed to drive a Rolls Royce after graduating college, to own a private jet at 24, or to be able to pursue financial independence at 35. Fuck, your bank doesn’t even have a program for people who make 10M under 35, nor does your college have a box for salaries above 250K+ when sending you a post-grad survey your first year after graduating.
When you take a glorious piss on society’s programming for you, they literally don’t know what to do with it or with you. So, the focus for balance isn’t just your shitty conditioning, it’s the “human condition.”
To make a better case, let’s focus on what has been touted as the “four burners” theory.
The Four Burners Theory
This theory claims that we as humans have finite energy, and our energy is divided into the four burners of life:
As we go through various stages of life, we might value one over the other, but with the goal being that as we age, we achieve “balance” in all of these. Ask any person with HR and they’ll attest, the word “work-life balance” has become the trend of the decade at any HR Department.
But this is the problem.
All around me, people are finishing grad schools, starting their first job, going hard on their first real hustle, and looking to go “all in” to finally lay a foundation to make F-YOU money, yet, they still find time to play sports, to date chicks, and to hang out with their friends. Now don’t get me wrong, a lot of them will end up really rich in their 50s and 60s.
They might end up in Country Clubs making bank as investment bankers with a trophy wife, but many more will expect to be filthy rich (500M+), than they actually will ever be. Because, the truth is, by pursuing balance: by choosing to spend energy on dating, weekend hangouts, and investing in their social life (even if it’s for 4 hours a week), they’ve already settled, without admitting it.
Full disclosure. I’m no Steve Jobs. But even for me to get to the place that I have the audacity to write a newsletter about F-You money took a lot of work.
It scares to admit how much I’ve sacrificed from between 17–27. I lived in the library, building business after business, cleaning toilets for lousy tenants, riding bikes in the snow to fulfill orders, I don’t know where to begin. I didn’t have any friends, I avoided any distraction, and never even touched a can of alcohol all of college.
I think my social life the past 10 years was as exciting as a manual from IKEA.
Now, when people work with me, they’ll invariably think: This is it? Where’s the “genius of Prady?” Why is he driving X car? There’s none. It’s just that I keep working.
It’s 11 PM on Sunday, and I slept in my car for 2 hours the past two nights. I’m typing this from a 24/7 gas station with Wi-Fi with a pungent smell of urine because I have to fulfill orders at 2 AM and I won’t have time to go back home tonight if I want to fulfill hand-written orders on time.
…But, that’s not the point. The point is that this shit hurts. I am in physical pain much of the day from lack of sleep. I have all types of sleeping disorders now, and I have tremors in my hands like a drug addict because of it. But that’s how I know it works.
At this point, you’re either cringing reading this, or some you are getting aroused, ready to bust. The latter sick fucks are the ones who will probably change the world. Because you get it. You get that all this sugar coating around balance is the biggest misconception in the Western World and that you’ve been played since day 1:
You cannot become a tycoon by leading a balanced life.
Stop lying to yourself and embrace the truth. Here’s where this thought leads you (yes, I’m going to bust your dreams here).
If you’re balanced, you’ll never be a billionaire, raise superstar children who will change the world and thank you for it, win the Mr. Olympia, grab 10 Ironmans, and have the most amazing marriage in the world. You might get one of these things, but you won’t have all of them simultaneously. Because they are all opposite of each other, and the intense work ethic required to achieve all these goals are so demanding, that any distraction from them will significantly reduce all odds of F-You success at any one of them.
The day I bought my first Bentley, I hadn’t slept, showered, or changed in days going through my company’s acquisition — the most brutal stretch of 10 days. I passed out shortly after this picture and ended almost dying. This is the shit no one wants to talk about.
Now, I’ve been doing this long enough that I know I’ll get some people stoked up and angry at writing this, saying that balance is the key to a happy life. I don’t necessarily disagree. I really do think that the four burners theory is a great way to live your life and a genuine solution. Mainstream media isn’t always out to get you, their approach to push you to set all burners at 25% may well help you to live a long and happy life. But, it will be average.
You won’t be the next pioneer in your field. And that’s the point of this article, and that’s who this article is written for. If your concept of the world is to have a happy family life, a good marriage, and a good income, this article isn’t for you. It’s written for a small fraction of sick fucks who will sacrifice everything and will drink piss each day and are willing to leave behind their relationships, families, and sanity because for them being the next Vanderbilt, or Trump, or Musk is worth it, no matter what.
Watch full Clip on IG: All I care about is winning
Now, there’s a chance that after reading this you might recognize that being as wealthy as Elon Musk isn’t for you. And who is to blame you for that? Maybe money isn’t everything. That’s up for you to decide.
Just know you have to make a choice,
whether it’s family, health, or wealth, or a bit of all.
Either way, if you don’t decide, the writing is on the wall.
You have already lost.
Welcome to the way of Man.
This is AZOTH.
Strength and Honor,
CEO & Founder, AZOTH
As featured on:
AWARD: NOOTROPIC OF THE YEAR
"I'll never go a day without Azoth again. I used to slack and drag around when getting up for work and would skip hitting the early morning workouts, but 30-mins after Azoth I've got the energy and motivation to get my a** moving and crush it. Lasts all day long too. Definitely my game changer." Get Ready To Sacrifice Everything.
Well researched formula for clean energy and focus without stimulants
"This product has helped me push through the normal "wall" that we hit as working professionals with days that never just run from 9 to 5. I love my coffee but as we all know sometimes coffee just doesn't do the trick, and worse, sometimes it leaves us feeling pretty awful. So how does a supplement help you with energy, focus, mood, productivity etc without any stimulants? As a person that studies supplements religiously, I want to break down the label for any prospective buyers so you can understand exactly what is in the product, and why.First things first there is a different dosage on the updated version. You can choose between 2 and 4 capsules which I think is a fantastic idea. Some days you need more help than others and being able to adjust the dosages easily is very helpful."
I'm the OG AZOTH user and still use it to this date
"I'm one of the OG guys who went to Yale with Prady when he developed this. Years later, still on Amazon's subscribe and save. This shit is legit and took our school by storm. I have been putting 10-12 hour work days in Here’s my trick. I work out first thing in the morning. Then, I take AZOTH with lunch. Literally, no afternoon groggy/sleepiness. Since the workout keeps me awake in the morning, I’m awake all day. It’s working out great!"
AZOTH offers something incredibly powerful.
"AZOTH offers something incredibly powerful. The AZOTH 2.0 keeps my ADD mind focused on tasks.But the Tribe is my favorite part. By joining the AZOTH Tribe you surround yourself with an incredible group of people that want the best for themselves and you.AZOTH has become a critical part of my life as I push myself to new limits."
My brain is on fire and I'm in such a good mood
"I've never felt so focused and energized plus I'm not so grumpy anymore (says the wife). It's hard to believe this stuff is all natural with no drugs or stimulants in it. The midday after lunch crash has always hurt me while at the office and I really thought that's just the way things were supposed to be. When I first started taking Azoth everything was so clear the first day of it. The mental draining fatigue was gone, I wasn't tired all day, and I just felt like "today is going to be a good day." It's been 5 weeks and it's only gotten better. I'm even more focused and so much less stressed. I even got motivated and energy enough to get back in the gym. People started asking what was with me and I send them all to your site. Customer for life here, keep it up guys. I will be back for more."
"After reading reviews I was skeptical. However my husband used Azoth after I ordered to sit his exams. He had more focus and concentration. I found myself liking the product after 2wks of use every other day. This will be a brand we keep in our household. No jitters. Had I not journaled my progress I might have assumed it is only good marketing. Don't hesitate to invest in this great product. I am absolutely, SOLD."
Oh boy! This stuff is the real deal.
"Hiyaaaaahhhhhhhh! That's the only single word I can use to describe my state of mind after using azoth. It's only been one day but I'm in hyperdrive absolutely blasting through my day. The thing I like about this product most is that I'm not overstimulated. I was a little worried when I saw there was some caffeine in it but it's been fine honestly."
The healthiest productivity enhancer I've tried.
"Busy, full-time working mom of 2 school aged boys. Going, going, going. I was using energy drinks to get me through the day. Not good. They are so bad for you in the long run. But, I was exhausted and still needed some fuel to get me going through the day. Found it when listening to a podcast where Prady the CEO of Azoth was on, Long story short, I've been using AZOTH for about 4 months and no turning back. Warning!!! Go ahead. Try it. But it has a serious lasting effect. No mood swings. It's kind of expensive and that was weighing heavily on me. But the effects I feel from using this are totally worth it. You don't feel any big swings of mood or energy. It just happens. If you are tired and busy and looking for something to help with your energy and mind concentration, Azoth delivers."
