Living life on your terms is an offensive game.While he doesn't spell it out precisely, one major reason why rich people are miserable is that everyone wants to be around them because everyone wants something from them. That's why so many of them become reclusive and suspicious; they haven't got the ability to ruthlessly cull the positive people who contribute to their lives from the negative people who ruin it.
Living life on your terms means setting the agenda. Only work with people you want to work with. Only talk to people you want to talk with.
You no longer need to explain yourself to people. If someone bores you, move on. If someone annoys you, why waste your time?
Remember that life is about focus and energy.
Where are you focusing your vision and how are you applying your energy?
Are you focusing your vision on negative people and then using your energy to fight off bad vibes and toxic emotions?
How much more energy would you have if you weren’t always recovering from negative experiences?
If you want to prove you are worthwhile to someone, then do something for them. Don't do it as a quid pro quo, do it as a demonstration of merit. Maybe good things will come of it. Maybe not. Regardless, you will be the better off for it.
Don't be a parasite. Don't be constantly asking others to do things for you, and give things to you. Figure out how you can help others, how you can be of use to others, and it won't be too terribly long long before people will be wanting to do the same for you.
