Luck is a huge part of life. Decrying luck is a fool’s errand - there's luck in everything, and it plays a larger role than people commonly understand. Smart people put themselves in situations where they can get lucky, and they calibrate for luck. They do it in social situations, in their careers, in their investments, etc. And those who are unsuccessful will always lament the fact that others got lucky, instead of re-calibrating and exposing themselves to get lucky across life domains

peterman is trying to reconcile his own luck on crypto, which on some level he knows is unearned, with other successful people. this is his cognitive way of saying -- hey, other people got lucky too, it's not just me -- and therefore it is OK and he shouldn't feel like a fraud.

i don't think this is a bad thing for him to do, he shouldn't feel guilty

You forget that putting yourself into a situation to get lucky means taking risks which also put yourself into a situation to get unlucky. Unlucky is not me sitting on the sidelines and bitching about not buying crypto, unlucky losing your fucking life savings when you did not have it to lose.

Reddit would tell you success is about being "nice" and asking people questions about themselves and using "sir" and "ma'am" which is great advice if you're a 105 smelly dope, but nowhere near putting yourself in situations where one can avail of LUCK.

What he's saying is that luck and chance are a big factor in success and you have no control over how or when it occurs. However, you can do things in your life that increase your odds and likelihood for those numbers to hit; more chips covering the table to to speak.

When I think of my life, I absolutely see this as the case. In the early 90's I had a choice to go to a lower Ivy at full price (which would have meant debt) versus an unknown STEM speciality school 100% free (arguably I was ahead some years when I worked on campus). Conventional wisdom was LOLWUT, why would you turn down famous school X for unknown Y. Well, doing that allowed me to graduate NODEBT, which enabled me to move to an emerging tech city without the burden of needing much if any sort of salary. That kind of nopaycheck freedom + a college friend in the same town led to my first 7-figure VC funding when I was about 23. So, I was able to get ahead early in life and subsequently stay ahead / compound it.

Was I lucky? Sure. Did I create the situation for luck to occur? You're damn fucking right I did, I turned down low risk / near certain UMC career paths an Ivy would have provided me for earlier financial freedom that allowed me to coast on minimal money long enough to develop product, raise funding, etc. I think it's that latter point people don't get. Unless you're from a bunch of family money, a top tier and costly degree might get you UMC, but don't expect to be able to take the sort of aggressive moves to actually strike it rich. Enjoy prestige, enjoy access to comfortable jobs and salaries, but the trade off is that career wise you're running the fucking football versus being able to take some shots deep.

how many times do we have to go through this, peterbitch?

you're a risk-averse coward in your personality, and through all facets of your life that's been repeatedly documented and demonstrated on this board.

you did ONE THING that on the surface seems brave, which is put $20k into some internet coins, but in reality this is neither as brave as it really seems for someone in your situation, nor is it characteristic of the level of risk you usually take, while being anomalous as a reflection of your personal traits and behaviors.
