    One of my favorite quotes is from Lisa Nichols who created Motivating The Masses. Her story is emotional and the level of success she’s achieved inspiring.
    “You want to make me extraordinary because it lets you off the hook.” - Lisa Nichols

    Immediately when Tim started talking it was apparent that he is an eloquent, intelligent guy. Not something I get from the millionaires in this video. I'm thinking of that Oscar Wilde quote about how a cynic is a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing (not sure about the exact wording) and in many ways I feel like Tim nailed some aspects of that in his first response.
    It's also important to keep that confirmation bias in mind while not letting it hinder you in *trying* to accomplish what you set out to do. They do talk about this, yet it ends up sounding more like it's still true that you can accomplish whatever you want just by believing in yourself. And that can be painful to people who have tried and tried again, but ultimately failed.

    The millionaire with the orange jacket is smart!!! Most people who become rich or even win the lottery blow up their money and go into debt. This guy knows the real deal!
    I'm doing great with my job but I still use coupons and shop at the dollar store for same things I can get at the store like toothbrushes, soaps, etc

    there is absolutely no way to become a billionaire or multimillionaire or “wealthy” without exploiting others. obviously there are multiple ways to do this indirectly or directly but in a capitalist system, exploiting a lower poor/working class is required for an upper, elite class to even exist. anyone that says anything else says is either in denial or a liar

  • Evalynn

    I don't think hard work alone is enough to make a person rich. There are so many factors like opportunities, connections, race/sex/sexual orientation, and especially education. Not just book smarts or schooling, but common sense and creative thinking can get you far if you were raised in an environment that nurtured that. I have worked my ass off in my life. I started working when I was 13, saved up every penny I had to go to college and I still went through a period of my life when I broke down sobbing because I lost my last $20 and I didn't know if I was going to have enough gas to make it home. The only reason I've been able to stay afloat is because I invested my money in stocks that skyrocketed. I only knew how to do that because I had a high school teacher and a father that talked to me about the stock market and gave me a list of stocks they thought I should keep an eye on. My hard work has never been enough. I know I got really lucky and I just as easily could've lost the money I invested.

    These minimum wage workers seem to be saying things out of scarcity, fear and “what if my risks don’t pay off”.
    The millionaires seem to have strong convictions, they networked when they had no connections, didn’t have investors help them and made things happen.
    If there’s one big takeaway from this it’s you need to believe in yourself and change your mentality to ensure success.

    Those two so called millionaires are just exploiting society (people). You cannot become a millionaire if you live alone on desert island. So which is most important? Gold bar or clean water. So mr millionaire, I ain't working building your house, do it yourself and Fcuk You.

    They very narrowly missed a MAJOR truth; the person who builds a house, makes less money than the guy who sells it. The one who created the asset got little, but the person who was willing to exploit and take what they could get away with flourishes. Essentially, greed wins.

    I liked Tim even though a lot of the other comments I read didn't like him. He's not some crazy socialist which I saw one comment say but he's just stating the truth. He was questioning how Brett got to the position he is in because statistically speaking, people who are "rich" are in the position they are in due to some type of advantage. I say "rich" in quotations because if we look at America's income distribution, there is such a wide gap now that essentially it is the poor and then the extremely rich. I know that statement is strong and to most people I would sound like a socialist but when looking at statistics, America's top 5% of wealthy's families (which is around 15,000 families) own about a 60% of the nation's wealth and the top 1% own about 40%., so about half of America's wealth in concentrated in one spot and where does that leave the rest of us? A shrinking middle class who are falling into a lower income status. These people that were invited on here are well off compared to most Americans but in regards to rich, hmm. What is rich to you? One million dollars? Two million? Three? Where the wealth is concentrated are not just millions but rather billions. My point is there is so much income inequality that people cannot even imagine because the amount of money the rich have is unfathomable! In America they sell the idea of the "American dream" and meritocracy and it's very attractive to think that maybe if I work hard enough, I'll be rich. That's usually not case unless we already have our foot in the door whether that means you were born into the rich or just a lot of luck. Tim is right. I think people just don't like to be told the reality of things even though there are numbers to prove it and it is more appealing to think that we live in a socioeconomic environment that works around meritocracy. Im sorry, I am not trying to be a downer but rather I want to help take off the bandage on people's eyes and realize the income inequality in America. I think it's better to know then to not because that is how people stay complacent. It's real and we are the ones affected by it, sometimes living paycheck by paycheck, being underpaid for positions, wages staying stagnant even thru inflation, not enough well paying jobs, etc. Im happy for the people on here that were able to be financially better off than most people because that's something hard to do especially in our economy today!

    I mean it's just a fact that NOT everyone can become rich just through hard work.
    Some people have downs syndrome, schizophrenia, low functioning autism, or some other disability that makes it difficult just to get by in this world, let alone become rich. All of these things are on a spectrum of course, some people can have a disability and still live independently and work, but a lot of people need to live in group homes and have near constant supervision. It's not their fault for not working hard enough, it's just how their life is.

    If you invest 100 dollars a month from the time your 25 until your 65 into a decent mutual fund that at least matches the market you'll be a millionaire. There is no excuse.

  • xw213x lastname
    xw213x lastname 3 days ago

    After watching this episode we can conclude the following:
    1. The community organizer guy is the only person with a strong social consciousness on the topic of systemic barriers in society and his focus is primarily on this. Systemic thinking about society is needed since it identifies the systemic causes of why people are poor and why people are rich, on systemic basis. For instance, private property laws are an institutional feature of our society and hence it is a systemic barrier for some people who do not have property to be rich, etcetera.
    2. The millionaires, in answering their questions, always turn to rationalizing their position in society based on their beliefs and methods which they, maybe rightfully so but in a confined space of possibilities, think enabled them to earn the amount of money they posses. For them they are more in the business of justifying their position than looking at the position of others from a systemic basis.
    3. Two of the girls that are poor seem to have also a developed sense of social consciousness, but not a systemic basis. They understand, from a personal perspective, that a lot of people around them need help and if they had the money they would happily help them. They've expressed so much.
    Note, I don't know anything else about the people in the video and the footage might be manipulated in the sense of creating a narrative.
