This video hits hard. I've started multiple ventures and given up on them because I didn'y get the success I was expecting as soon as I was expecting it. On social media we tend to see the flashy stuff. People who achieved incredible stiff in a very short amount of time. What we fail to realize is, that that's not usual.
I think we need to base our expectations on reality and what's more typical. Not saying you need to settle for typical, or normal, just realize that making great things take time.
I'm writing this for myself, by the way. Great video and great topic. I'll talk about it on my channel in the near future.

I 100% agree you should invest long term in yourself and your passions. However, there's a few key things Matt glossed over that anyone taking his advice literally should keep in mind. First, you don't have to quit your day job. We don't really know what Matt's financial situation was at the start of his content creator career. Maybe his wife was/is the breadwinner, or maybe he had a lot saved up, or maybe he took out a loan to get himself there. The fact is, don't let money be the reason you feel unable to seek out and grow your passions. Start small, and give yourself 5 years to get there. Also, and this is important, BE PATIENT with yourself.
A good sign you're on the right path is suddenly realizing how much more you have to learn. Don't let that discourage you, because it will feel overwhelming at times. It's cliche to say, you get there by putting one foot in front of the other, but it's true. My advice would be that over the course of your 5 year effort, budget time to learn one new skill a month. Then once you reach the 5 year mark, no matter what the outcome, you can look back and consider it a journey either way. Maybe it won't work out, but at least you learned a treasure chest of knowledge along the way, something that could guide your next 5 year project.

I always wanted to go for civil service but my previous relationship and it's pressure force me to looking for jobs which I have no interest to work in long run. Finally she left me for better option 😹 and now I am giving myself 5 years to go for this civil service exam and even if I fail to get this job, at least I would say to myself that I tried. I am not pursuing any relationship, only study 10 hours (now can do 7 hours) and lift weights and that's it 💪💪

I started a business, and struggled like never before for three years . . . there were days with no food, no sleep, and no smiles. Worry, doubt, forced to dig deep. It's ten years on and I earn ten times more in the same field than I did before I began. I don't look back fondly at taking the chance . . . but it was a necessary one to secure my future.
