The Burdened Life

The Dark Side of Success No One Talks About...

When many guys reach their long-term goals… instead of feeling on top of the world, their lives fall to pieces.

Billionaires feel poor inside… guys with beautiful girlfriends feel miserable... and celebrities like Robin Williams take their own lives.

Why?

Because in their frantic search for success, they’ve missed something important…

After 12+ years coaching and giving seminars in over 87 countries around the world, I see this happen to guys all the time.

Don’t wake up someday and realize you’ve made the same mistake…

If achievement at the highest level doesn’t bring fulfillment, then what would?

I’ve channeled decades of learning, research, testing and experience into finding the answer.

It’s a lot to share, but if you’d like to find out, you can get started with this video I’ve filmed for you.

Best, David

      Man you know me right between the eyes every time you talk to me I am a 53 almost 54 year old male. I have a bachelor’s degree but I was also in the Navy for 20 years all of the above I have done without purpose I am currently in a job that’s well beneath my education level. I continue to do it because I feel I must keep stable income to sustain life. Please keep preaching to me hopefully I will get out of this mess that I’m in. I do have a way with women I haven’t taken your course but I have two women that want to marry me. One is beautiful but cannot do much around the house. One is closer to my age but not as beautiful but she come comfort me and do housework so much better than the other beautiful beautiful lady. I am so confused I do not know if want to have a beautiful woman to marry but I enjoy having sex with. Or do I marry you the one that can be more things for me around the house. I am completely lost!

    Your friend sounds like me… I married the girl, had the straight A students, a million dollar business… And yet I was not happy. Know what I did? I blew it up! I cheated on my wife and got caught. Our divorce ruined both for my children’s grades in school. I even lost clients and eventually had to sell or sink. Don’t do what I did. Be thankful for what you have. Don’t think a few moments of boredom are worth losing everything. Great video David. Loved it!

My wife doesn’t know how to talk to me, all three of our children make no effort to communicate anymore.. I am burned out. I feel like I let more than half my life slip away into living someone else’s dream. I love my kids and my wife and I am grateful to have them but work wise, hobby wise, everything else wise..

    My boyfriend is stuck in a rut right now. He finally opened up to me and told me he felt unfulfilled. I took it personal and got very hurt by it. We didn’t speak for over a week. He told me he was sorry and I said he shouldn’t be. I didn’t understand it. I watched this video and now I do. I am going to watch it again when he gets home from work, with him.

    What if I am stuck? Like I want to do something with my life but I am not really good at anything. I don’t have higher education, I don’t have the money to afford it even if I wanted it, I don’t have anything right now. No girl, no house.. I basically have a crappy apartment with a crappy car to match my 9 to 5 crappy job. I know there is more but when you are looking around and see nothing it is hard to tell what the next step is.

    I feel like we are all trained to be victims and lead a life of victimhood. This has resulted in people not only being ungrateful but being so damn unhappy. I am only 19. I just finished High school this year. I see all the people around me chasing what pays the most so they can get the best car, the biggest house, and they all use the same method of doing this.. They play the “I am entitled because”. It is frustrating. I didn’t go to college this year. I wanted to figure out what I want in life before spending all that money on something I will only end up regretting. Very happy I found your video man. I want to see the next one. I hope it goes up soon.

    Truth, right there! Been through this when it comes to self development and dating. Got really good with girls, my self esteem and confidence was on top, and boom, then I had a setback and felt almost even more insecure than before. Figured I had to find some deeper, long term fulfilment. Now I have an amazing girlfriend, and I keep on working on myself, and I feel happy and fulfilled in those areas, because they are always moving forward. It was you who taught me that “true fulfilment comes from progress”. Now it is the career, figuring out if what I’m doing now is what I want and if I can make a good living on it. And that’s a lot of work, a little bit more uncertainty than I’d prefer, and always about working to be better and to be acknowledged for it. And although I enjoy a lot of it, I don’t even know if this is what I want to do when I’m 40 (22 now, musician and producer), and it’s usually a lifestyle that is hard to fit with a family life. So I’m filling up every hour, being tired a lot and a little uncertain about the future. Lucky for me, I’m always pushing to grow and improve and to create a life I’m happy with, thanks to you among others. And I’ll keep doing that.

    I think it comes down to knowing what you really want. Just because you have money, and the ladies, does not mean that something isn’t missing. So many people ask, “how can you be unhappy, you got the money?”. I hate hearing that and just feel like those people are idiots.

    most people get into relationships with the hopes that all the work will not have to come from their end. that is not the case. BOTH parties have to work together and when one of them feels out of the loop or not satisfied BOTH have a thing or two to do in order to make it right. Right?

    I am 18, and for many years I led a life focused solely on achievement. Parents, societal values, and ingrained personal ideology led me to the false belief that by focusing on academics to the exclusion of all else, I would one day be able to live a life of happiness and ease–this is by far the greatest bullshit I have ever heard.

    “Get this grade, enter this contest, get that award” is what I heard–and for a long time, even though the awards and good grades piled up, I didn’t feel any happier. I led a life of quiet desperation, burdened by expectations and an inordinate amount of work. Yet a little over a year and a half ago, I had a paradigm shift and realized that the work doesn’t have to be bitter in order for the reward to be sweet. We don’t have to slave away for decades just to enjoy the fleeting happiness that comes from retirement; it’s not the end goal, but the journey.

    Enjoy the process and never feel burdened. Now in college, I do what I want, eat what I like, and live the life I deserve. I still achieve, but now, it’s not for myself, but for a better world. I look forward to hearing more from you David. 🙂

    People around me think that I am the happiest person they know because of my achievements, talents, looks and social status. I am a hard worker, and I do the things that I love to do most first. However, I’m stressed as fuck and feel not only that it’s not enough but that I need to feel unfulfilled to want more and eventually reach the threshold between unhappy and happy. The truth is that most of my achievements and talents happenned not because of stress and unhappiness but because of passion, patience and luck. Maybe it’s time for me to pause and think about the true purpose of my life. Loved the video, Can’t wait to receive the next one !

    There were many things I wanted to know, how things work and why are thing the way there are, but nobody knew how to tell me and explain things to me like you do, you are the only person to ever do that.

    My life is super burdened right now. Just got fired from a job that I was barely tolerating and now my entire career path is put on hold. This is the 4 time in ten years I get canned and I am just feeling like perhaps this isn’t the path I need to be on. I gotta figure out something fast though because I have three beautiful daughters depending on me to get it right fast. Relationship with the wife is just so tenuous and bad and it was never good to begin with, but I cheated several years ago (after allowing her to abuse me) and she cheated and we have just been in survival mode for a few years now and its all very draining now with a job search *again.

    WTF dude? In your email you said: “I’ve channeled decades of learning, research, testing and experience into finding the answer. It’s a lot to share, but if you’d like to find out, you can get started with this video I’ve filmed for you.”

    And then you waste 17 minutes of my very busy schedule rumbling on and on endlessly just trying to evoke bad experiences and feelings in me, and NOT giving even a clue about this “process”.

    Yes, I know, you have to market, and from what I see, many people respond. I guess everyone gets their piece of the pie. Many people seem to think that they find your videos useful. Me, every time I watch one, I get angry for the time I wasted, listening to endless fluff talk, with one or two useful things here and there.

    AND THEN, I thought that this is really good marketing. And maybe I have something useful to learn from you. So, thank you, really. Wise people have said: Don’t listen to what an expert says, look at what he does 😉

    Hey David,

    I first thought my passion was art, but that quickly subsided as I grew… then , I thought it was football.. but after figuring out school wasn’t for me, I let my grades slip in high school and was never offered the football scholarship I always wanted. . Soon after I graduated though, I found a passion for music.

    I began writing music. I, shortly after, met a guy who began teaching me how to produce music. I loved it. I fell in love with it so much, that I intended on going to school for music…. I was soon talked into going to school for OPT, by my dad. My heart wasn’t in it at all and I ended up dropping out of school TWICE in a 3 semester, 2 year time frame.

    That lead me to my only option which was to find a job and work. . I’ve been working dead end job after dead end job since 09′, doing my own music on the side.

    Saving up has been a pain in my ass these past few years and I’m so ready to be done with these 9-5’s. . Just looking for a way to finally start doing what I love to do for a living.

    Yesterday, I lost my younger sister, a general acute illness (avoidable of course); I was watching from the last few weeks that she was having a burdened life, she was shouting in silence that her life was anything but fulfilling… really, really hurts and it’s difficult to see that “the system” is like that… more than the 3/4 parts of the people around the world are living a burdened life… at schools and universities they teach you how to succeed at your chosen career, not how to realize fulfillment at your own life and to share this fulfillment with your loved ones and the world indeed… so the rat race is the “norm” and the status quo sadly, and we think that “this is life”… every person, every case is different but everyone of us are “chasing” the same goal: Happiness and fulfillment, even searching and thinking that that kind of burdened life as David says will bring us that… there is not even one achievement that could bring us happiness and/or fulfillment, not even one… fulfillment is not dependent of any achievement… but there are several questions we could ask to ourselves, like: to realize your very felt purpose will help you realize fulfillment?… think twice before you respond… think again… fulfillment is not dependent of any achievement… but, “we are alive and we must be doing something, happiness will not arrive by itself” maybe someone could be thinking or saying, well… think, feel again… Another question could be: why people do not awake to “this reality” before the “biggest fall of their life or the dark night of the soul process or whatever”, well, because this is the kind of education and programing all of us are receiving from home (most of sadly), at schools, at “the streets”… it’s culture around the world… well, when you have “that good luck to have or receive” an insight about this comes the next question: when?, where?, with whom?, and so on… and the answers to all of them could come in company with fear, stress, doubt and a lot of strong seated mistaken beliefs at our own psyche or mind… well, I guess I’m making this a little too longer than needed but, just think, just feel… the answer could be closer than our own breathing…

    Thank you all, thank you David

    Trying to figure out one’s own purpose in life is quite a challenge especially if the person doesn’t even know where to begin. I’m 26 and in the 3rd year of my Ph.D. in China. My greatest challenge right now is to figure out how to start drawing the draft of my 1st paper, at the same time balance it out with part-time work hours and figure out what’s next after Ph.D.

    The people I see and the experiences I have had are based on a false epistemology of life.
    This believe comes from their protectors based on IFS therapy in a classic co-dependent behavior.
    What I find fascinating is their anger is based on the actions they did to achieve that were not recognized by an outside influence. An achiever seeks validation from outside.
    Example I have a friend named Tim and Tim is achievement drivin’ workaholic white knight. Tim will give up time with friends to go to work. He’s facilitating his boss who keeps Tim’s department understaffed because he can always get Tim to come in. Tim will pass up going out on Saturday night with friends to go to work. Tim is aware he is doing something unhealthy to his well being but that doesn’t stop him. Tim’s boss sees this as commonplace. Tim in facilitating his boss gets angry when his achievement goes unrecognized by his boss. This anger hampers Tim’s interactions with others.
    Another fascinating fact about Tim’s actions is he keeps saying he will change his behavior when he gets outside validation. The validation Tim seems to need is verbal (like permission from a parent) not based on real world experiance. Tim received a bad review but since Tim is a achiever he worked harder and ignored his own well being more.
