  • - I retired at the age of 27, why do I still work?

  • (upbeat music)

  • It is the same reason why Elon Musk, why Jack Ma,

  • why Warren Buffet, why Bill Gates,

  • why all of them still work.

  • You look at the Forbes 500, the 500 richest people

  • on the plant, guess what?

  • They all still work, most of them still work, why?

  • They don't need the money, right?

  • This is a poor person's question, I'll tell you why.

  • Because you don't know what retirement is like.

  • When I retired age of 27, I was bored out of my mind.

  • See, most people who have the employee mentality

  • because they fucking hate what they do, they don't like

  • what they do, so they have this fantasy,

  • they want to get to the point where I don't have

  • to work anymore, I don't need to go to work, right.

  • They'll be sitting on a beach being a beach bum

  • or something all day and think, that's, yep,

  • that's my ultimate dream because that's how they've been

  • fantasizing this whole thing.

  • When the wealthiest people on the planet, they have retired,

  • they have retired, not from something, not doing nothing,

  • but they have retired to their businesses.

  • What they are passionate about, what they love to do.

  • They wake up every morning, there is a purpose,

  • there's a sense of purpose, there is something

  • that they look forward to, versus most people,

  • there's nothing they look forward to,

  • they don't like what they do, they're not good

  • at what they do, right.

  • When you have actually experienced it,

  • you probably have not experienced it,

  • but if you have experienced it, then you know

  • that retirement is not what it's all cracked up to be.

  • It's boring and if you look at a lot of studies,

  • a lot of people who retired at age 65 when they got nothing

  • to do, guess what, they are bored and shortly

  • after that they die because there's no purpose.

  • As a human being, we need to grow.

  • I'm working from a different place.

  • I'm working because I like what I do.

  • I'm working because I want to impact a billion people

  • around the world to help them become a better version

  • of themself, that's why I work, that's what drives me.

  • What drives me is no longer just, oh I want to get a car,

  • I want to get this, I want to travel a little bit more,

  • I want to take that one week vacation, I wanted that house.

  • Those things don't interest me anymore.

  • You are driven by a different purpose, by a different reason

  • and I do believe motive does better.

  • Intent does matter.

  • It makes a huge difference why you do what you do,

  • so that's why I still work, but what you're really saying

  • is this, that's not the question.

  • The question is just not, oh if you retired at the age

  • of 27 why do you still work?

  • That's not the question.

  • What you're saying is, oh if you're so successful,

  • why do you still make content?

  • Why do you take your time to do this?

  • What you're saying is that maybe there's a hidden agenda

  • that you're looking for ways to discredit my message

  • and what I'm sharing with you.

  • That's the truth.

  • What you're saying is I don't believe that you are doing

  • this out of goodness and the truth is I don't really care

  • if you believe it or not 'cause I'm not doing it for you.

  • I'm doing it for all the students, all the fans out there

  • who doesn't have this limiting belief

  • or this like bullshit filter.

  • If you want to watch my video, then watch my video.

  • If you don't want to watch my video,

  • go watch something else.

  • Watch someone doing a prank video, go watch someone doing

  • something stupid, go watch something else.

  • You don't have to watch Dan Lok's video.

  • There's so many other choices, why?

  • Right, why?

  • You watching my video, I promise you, is not going

  • to change my life.

  • It's not gonna affect my life,

  • it's not gonna make my life better.

  • My life is already fabulous as it is,

  • but maybe, maybe there's something that I said,

  • there's something that I shared, maybe an idea,

  • maybe a lesson, maybe a story, something that just hits you

  • and you say, I never thought it that way,

  • I never viewed things like that, or an aha moment.

  • Sometimes one video, one quote,

  • one story could change your life.

  • That's why I do it, and that's why I keep doing it,

  • and that's why I work harder than ever

  • and I'm more successful than ever financially,

  • but I work harder than ever because the reason,

  • what drives me has changed significantly.

  • If you want to know my entire journey, how I retire young,

  • not sitting on a beach doing nothing, but what I did,

  • what are some of the things I did to get to where I am,

  • download my book, F.U. Money.

  • You can get it from Amazon, you can also click a link here,

  • I'm gonna give it to you for free, doesn't cost anything.

  • I'm also gonna give you the audio version.

  • Read the book and you'll see, and you're gonna see,

  • get a full picture of how I'm able to retire at a young age

  • and also how I view life, how I view business,

  • and how I view wealth, and more importantly,

  • how I view money.
