Thanks for the feedback, Alex. I agree that we must never look down or criticize anyone who does not choose to take steps to live an extraordinary life (although I do think that is a sad scenario to see in anyone’s life).

On your point if everyone took this degree of productive risk — perhaps it wouldn’t be “special” and merely “average” in the literal definition of the word (the aggregate group of the most common result). But I would still argue this life, even if experienced by “most” people, would still be an incredible and wonderful scenario. If most of the world became financially disciplined and everyone became a millionaire, sure that would be the “average,” but it would still be a fantastic result to be celebrated.
