Wow I was harsh. I'm not sure what was up with me when I posted it, but...
In due time you shall find, that time itself is precious. I am not sure as to your age, what you do for a living or anything else of that level. I uploaded a pic I took in 2012 a little while ago and have it as my background on my computer to keep me on track. I think on Friday the day before I posted that comment I ran into people who want something out of nothing. I pinpointed the reason as to why they don't have things they want and they went off yelling/screaming/being demeaning and anything else you can think of- because what I presented to them was the truth.
Life is not about money bud. But you do need it to live life. To me life is, when you love someone and they love you back. Life is when they want you and you want them for as long as there is an existence. Life is vacations, a nice car, dining out with your fiance or wife to all those restaurants you were not able to afford. Enjoying the fine meals, taking a bite into that meal and being able to sit there for hours, talking to each other, enjoying the ambiance, the jazz music in the background as you indulge upon your zesty dessert and companions words. Life is freedom. The freedom to do what you want when you want. True freedom. Being able to set things your own way. Being able to spontaneously surprise your relatives and brothers and sisters. Being able to spontaneously show up to their doorstep within days even if they are exactly on the other side of the world from your current location. Life is family, friendship and love.
Life is not waking up early in the morning, going to work for 8 hours and then coming up to see there is no longer daylight. And to continue such a vicious cycle. Life is not working 5 days so you can get 2 days off. Life is not that! Think about it...would you give away 5 dollars so they can give you 2 dollars? That's supposed to be life? Give 5 days away for 2 days of freedom?
You said I have not done anything of value in my life? ...here is a secret... Offer value to society, and you shall earn all that you want. Freedom is gained through such value you give to others.
I replied in a harsh tone to your post, for no known exact reason other than the reason that I do hope somehow you change. For the better, of your life. Towards a real life.
Idiotic, you said I am? Perhaps, for now, because you do not understand that to which I tell you.
No, I do not apologize for my words. I hope it strikes a nerve.
People use their lack of x, their xyz to why they fail. You yourself know what a success is. You yourself know what you can accomplish! Your yourself, can get you what you want! Your yourself. No other man, women or child shall act as your guide. No other man women or child shall aid in such strides.

I want you to continue demeaning the way I think. And then I want you to think about what I wrote, so that you yourself can see what I see.
I will say it again. Do not waste your time. It is precious, use it wisely, for it will never be replenished!
