Here's How You Should Make Money

No one is going to tell you an easy way to make money

In the beginning days of my gambling thing, it was very easy to make money. The system was basically foolproof and anyone with a credit card could make a good yearly income. I wasn't making money through any sort of skill, I was essentially exploiting a loophole. But here's the thing about loopholes: no one is going to tell you how to do them, especially not someone you don't really know personally. Because if too many people find out about a loophole, it closes. So if you want to make "easy money", you're probably going to have to stumble upon it yourself. If someone IS trying to share a loophole with you (especially aggressively, by email) it's probably a scam like a HYIP or a Forex trading scheme.

Most of the people who were gambling like I was now play poker. You can play poker online or in casinos and make six figures a year. But it's not a loophole, so it's okay to tell everyone. The barrier to entry is a few years of exhaustive practice, thousands of dollars to lose while learning, and the ability to sustain that lifestyle while you struggle to break even.

On Standing Deeper

Whatever I'm doing, it's not working.

Here I am; 34, in serious debt to the IRS, fresh off a break-up and I work in the morning and it's 5am.

And I'm blogging.

Ya see, like many of you, I'm sure, I have so many things I want to learn about and do; eat Paleo, exercise more and better, learn new languages, computer programming and brain training, meditate every day to stop the feeling of your life casually passing you by... And like some of you, I believe, I end up doing very little. I want to live a more minimalist lifestyle but I'm buried under stuff. I shop for healthy food and it rots in the fridge. I tell myself how important rest is but here I am in front of my computer at 5am.

I know there's a better way, I've read about it. I can see this better version of me but I just can't seem to live up to it. Really kills me inside. The worst part about it is the vicious cycle aspect; inaction leads to depression leads to inaction. Maybe you've felt the same thing?
