    As someone who likes neither avocados or coffee, and can't afford a house, this reasoning is exceptionally flawed.

    Easy to say when you were handed a lump sum of money as a kick start. Most people don't have that privilege/opportunity. I do not like people like him. He did not earn it from working his ass off while not making enough money to begin with and then made a way for things to happen. He was given over 30,000 dollars to get started.

    You mean not spending $2 a week on avocados will warrant me to save a quarter million dollars!? And how!? I figured it had more to do in the steep turn of inflation in the last 20 years. Maybe it is my fault that houses are being sold for almost double what they were 6 years ago.

    Perhaps he was using expensive avocado toast as an example​? Perhaps he was saying that if you don't have a job and are spending money on luxurious food items you won't ever own a home. He's absolutely correct. Wealthy people don't become wealthy overnight. Wealthy people become wealthy by sacrificing luxuries now so they can have better things later on in life.

    Why is it that nearly EVERYONE that talks about how hard they worked, and how everyone else is lackadaisical, also managed to receive a massive capital injection before they got started on their journey of being so awesome?

    Yeah na mate. I don't spend that much of avo & coffees. & even if I did & cut back it would still take like 25 years to save a deposit apparently so if I'm gonna be homeless I'd rather enjoy avocados
