Does he have any pictures of him beating up prostitutes? Because that's what makes him cool and respected, you know.

re: Dan Bilzerian's very own containment thread. All things Bilzerian go here

I mean how happy can he be if he tries to show off how "badass" he is? I'm not hating, it's just a psychological fact. People who are badass don't have a need to show people that they are. He does it to make people envious so he can raise his diminished self esteem. Needing the acceptance of others is a huge sign of low self esteem.

Either way i wish the guy best of luck in life. He's probably pretty fun to hang out with.

He's giving away 100k to people who need it, that's pretty commendable.

And usually these types of posts where people want to try to make assertions as to how he can't possibly be happy are merely them trying to make themselves feel better about their own meager existence. If they were to ever allow themselves to believe that "hot women, freedom to not work, traveling, cars, and lots of money" were actually something that was *gasp* enjoyable to have and can improve quality of life, then having that belief makes their own life harder to accept if they don't see how they will ever have it. Much better to convince ones self that life while you're broke is just as awesome and great as life with money and more freedom.

No different than people rationalizing having an ugly girlfriend by saying "it's what's on the inside that counts". It's as though they overlook the option of finding someone who is *gasp* not only good on the inside, but actually doesn't look like dog ****. Applies to money as well, If you're already a happy person it definitely can enhance your happiness and enjoyment in life as long as your foundation is sound. Never understood why more people can't just accept that there will always be some people in the world who can't be happy no matter what they have, but that has nothing to do with the indisputable fact that having more money provides more leisure and freedom, which has a strong correlation to peoples quality of life.

Who cares? It's good for poker if people think he's made all that cash from grinding.

The guy has a sick life, maybe he is very shallow but who wouldn't wanna be banging hotties, flying in private jets and driving supercars all year round? I'd love to experience this guys life for a few weeks.

I love following his antics on twitter/instagram, sure is a million miles away from my life.

See this does sort of piss me off. The way he talks about losing money gambling and the money he spends on cars/watches/private jets leads you to assume that 100k is nothing to him. It's probably the same as me giving away $100 in relative terms.

Most of the time you are spot on with your assumption. I can assure you that my post is no reflection of my unhappiness, I was only making a generalization from a psychological standpoint. I've never had millions or anything but I do also somewhat come from experience because I've had 6 figures and somewhat financial freedom and I know what it's like to be very disappointed in how it really didn't bring me the happiness I thought it would (i was actually the least happy i have ever been). I agree that it can bring happiness if you are content and don't go around flashing everything around. That's not what i see when I see Dan, clearly I don't know him he might be a real nice and cool guy but i'm just telling it how I see it, no disrespect

Haha the funny thing about that is that he's acting like 14 year old girls/boys that do everything to get followers. To him it's worth 100k to rack up some followers.

I think he's kinda sad to be honest. Paying a mill or whatever it was to be in a movie, lie about being self made etc. He's gotta be close to 40 (?) but it seems like he will do whatever he can to become famous, like it wasnt enough to be born with everything.

Would I like to live a life similar to his? **** yea

Wink re: Dan Bilzerian's very own containment thread. All things Bilzerian go here

Pretty phony sounding how he's constantly trying to remind everyone of how much money he has and how super hot all the women he bangs are. Sounds like someone has low self esteem. Like in his well how whenever he mentioned hookers he's like but it was just because I wanted to have my ******* licked because I had a cpl super fine non-hookers with me that I was ****ing too. Ya sure buddy tons of ppl just pay hookers even though they have free pussy waiting for them.

Theres an interesting article that could be worth reading that statement reminded me of

Its written by a former Navy Seal. For those that dont know, apparently Blitz tried to become a Seal and didnt make it.

When the Seals caught wind that Blitz leant money to a producer or someone to get a gig as a seal in one of his movies and later posted a pic of all his cash and saying like "daddy said stop gambling but Im in the hole and nobody likes a quitter". The seal wrote an lol article about him quitting becoming a seal and how they agree, nobody likes a quitter

It was an epic burn

As for his lifestyle, I mean its pretty cool to not only have financial freedom but to be able to buy basically whatever you want, but everyones happiness is dependent on themselves rather then what they have. Everybody has their own steady state of happiness that they live in, whether you're rich middle class or poor, we all basically live on the same bandwidth and its only good/bad experiences that make was wander from our usual level to be excited/depressed for a little while before returning to our normal level

Blitz wouldnt be any more or less happy than any of us. He'll live his own balance is his own head and so will we. Its good not having to work/grind etc, but all of this in general is washed away. Whether he would get as excited as we would sitting in a ferrari I dont know, the point is having 100x better things in someones life doesnt make them 100x happier or sadder etc

cliffs; Im sure dan feels as good sitting in his LA pool looking over the city as I do cracking a fresh brewskie about to watch the game, and as anyone else who finds something they enjoy
