Happy New Year, comrade.
I hope you had a wonderful year and best wishes to you and your family members. I want to say thank you for taking your time of the day to read my stuff. I sincerely hope that my material helped your life for the better (I know my grammar is crappy – I’m working on it …)
Now, let’s get down to business …
Every year, average people wait until the end of the year to make goals – they just call it “new year resolutions”.
The uber human makes every day resolutions. Every day he makes the resolve to conquer himself and in turn, conquers the world.
If you want to make 2016 your best year yet, just work like crazy. Have routines, get rid of distractions and just work hard.
If I were to mentor someone, here’s what I would tell him.
- Give up TV, video game and social media
- Have a routine that you can do every day, without fail
- Start a blog to document the greatness
- Sign up for the gym and lift weight 3 times a week
- Read a book every day for 25 minutes
- Hang out with great friends who are uber human tier
- Every day, learn a skill set that makes money
My embarrassing “new year resolution” confession
Many years ago, I had “new year resolutions”.
“This year is going to be special,” I told myself. “on January 1st, I’m going to attack goals and be the best person I can be.” What ended up happening was I failed two weeks end. Oh well, whatever. Then I went on with my life and waited until 11 months later and made more “new year resolutions”.
Back then, I wish someone grabbed me by the collar, shook me and yelled: “Listen, dumb ass. If you want to become an uber human, a high level performer, a fucking boss, you don’t have fucking new year resolutions. You have every day resolutions. Every day you strive towards your goal. Oh and work 16 hours a day because every moment is precious.”
I would have stumble backwards and said: “Th-thank you for the sage advice, comrade.”
I remember now … it was a dark night and I was broke. Out of desperation, I promised myself: either I become a professional poker player … or I die trying.
So the next 2.5 years, I pretty much played poker 12-16 hours a day. I moved up from playing $1/2 NL to $7/14 NL (to progress at that pace is like being promoted from a customer service representative to a high level manager). A person who plays $5/10 NL in Las Vegas is either very rich or a professional poker player.
Start a blog and document your greatness
I have been blogging for years, even before I started this site. I blogged because I know human memory is faulty.
Blogging is about brutal honestly; only by looking at the truth in the face can a person improve quickly. Blogging is therapeutic. You can’t go wrong with starting a blog and maintaining a blog and using the blog to make money.
Use the blog as a platform to document greatness.
Reasons why you should start a blog:
- A sense of pride and accomplishment, to see how much your progress.
- Inspire other people to do the same
- Potentially make “passive” income off your blog
Go ahead. Create your own awesome blog.
I recommend you use paid hosting instead of a free blog like WordPress or Blogger. You want 100 percent control of your blog. When a person uses wordpress, wordpress can delete the blog anytime they want at their discretion (I had it done to me before). Also there are ads on WordPress … a customer generate the content, WordPress makes money.
When you start your own blog, your domain name can your first and last name, a pen name, or “Become ZXY.com”. Whatever resonates with you.
If I had to start all over again, I would start my blog with a paid hosting. It’s crazy because BecomeUberHuman.com could have been over 10 years ago if I started at 18 (but then again, I was a clueless high school student at 18 who had no direction or discipline in life.The 18 years old me and the 28 years old me is like night and day. I don’t have any old pictures of me in high school because my hard drive died but I don’t even look like the same person)
Adopt a minimalist lifestyle
Guess what I bought for Christmas? Nothing. I bought nothing for myself or for others. As for my friends, we went out for dinner. I haven’t bought stuff for Christmas for 7 years now.
Here in Canada, the holiday sales is called “Boxing Day” because during the sales week, people go crazy for cheap electronic consumer goods and punch each other out.
I’m ignorant because I’m not sure if they have “Black Friday” in Europe and Asian countries. But here in Canada and America, people wait in line 45 minutes to get inside a store … and then grab the stuff to buy … then wait another 45 minutes lining up to pay for the stuff.
Here’s a video:
Going to the mall during boxing day is obnoxious as shit. But sometimes it’s fun to go there and observe people. Sometimes I spazz out and scream in the mall, just for fun.
Funny because people are in debt and broke as a joke after Christmas, after spending all their hard earned money on buying plastic junk and electronic goods. Those who can’t afford it put it on credit card and pay 18 percent interest.
How do you save time, money and head ache? Adopt a minimalist lifestyle.
Having a minimalist lifestyle as a new year resolution is admirable. A minimalist lifestyle benefits you because you save money and time and have less stress. And it benefits the earth because you consume less.
What minimalism is:
- Getting rid of stuff and services you don’t need to save money
- Simplify your diet for a healthier body and to save time on cooking
- Simplify your daily routine to focus on the important things in life
- Organizing your home (never misplace your keys again!)
What minimalism isn’t:
- Living like a monk with barely any stuff
- A dick waving contest who has the least stuff
Minimalism in a nut shell: simply life, keep what you love, and ruthlessly throw things away that doesn’t serve you.
I have been living the minimalist lifestyle for 6 years now and I love it. I love the stress free life. I love not wasting time. I love looking good because I spend money on quality clothes and not quantity.
One of my favorite thing is to travel abroad with 1 small bag. People are shock and surprise when I tell them I will be staying in a foreign country with a small, school sized back pack. It feels free to walk around with a small bag back – just me, my electronics, money and adventures to be made.
Rest assured that I don’t look down on people who hoard things. I understand some people love; stuff gives them a sense of security and comfort. And that’s cool. But if you look at spiritual leaders through out the ages, like Christian monks and Buddhist monks, they were minimalist.
Uber Humans and high level performers don’t have fucking time to look for stuff.
They’re busying doing things and becoming great. I’m not interested in having a big shelve for 400 books to impress people who come over to my home. I’m more interested in reading on my e-reader and writing useful content to make a difference in people’s lives.
My biggest fear is laying in my death bed and thinking of all the time I wasted, especially finding stuff like lost keys and cleaning the house.
Pick 1 goal and work on it 25 minutes every day, no matter what
For starters, pick 1 goal that matter the most to you. Maybe it’s losing weight, or making and saving money, or finding a relationship. Every day, spend 25 minutes reading and taking action towards your goal. 7 days a week, 365 days a year, do your goal – no matter what.
What can you do in 25 minutes per day?
- Cook a healthy meal using a crock pot
- 25 minutes lifting weight in the gym
- Read books on nutrient
- Shop for healthy food and prep the meals
- Go for a run
- De-clutter your home
- Donate books, clothes and furniture
- De-clutter computer files
- Cut off social media
- Shred unneeded documents
- Cancel unnecessary services
- Build a blog that makes money
- Advance your skill set in your field (take online courses)
- Read a book on investment
- Find mentors on Linkedin
Take it one day at a time. By the end of the year, you’ll be surprised how far you progressed.
- 3 Habits You Must Do Every Day
- The Uber Human Manifesto – What Exactly Is An Uber Human?
- The Differences Between Sheep and Wolves
For a person who wants to tackle on more, I recommend a week routine. For example:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: go to the gym and lift weight
Monday to Sunday: read 25 minutes and write your reflection
Monday to Sunday: spend 10 minutes writing your blog to document your greatness
Monday to Sunday: spend 25 minutes learning and practicing a skill set that makes you money. Build and create something great.
Thursday and Saturday: hang out with friends / family members / girlfriend / boyfriend
To be honest, it doesn’t matter what’s your starting point is (I started from the bottom of the barrel, I was basically a stinky fish). Start today, build that work ethic and become an awesome person. A year from now, you’ll look back and you’ll thank yourself for taking action today.
My 2016 goals
A few comrades asked (on Youtube) what was my new year goals.
Here is some of it:
- Get 500 subscribers on the Become Uber Human Channel
Once I have 500 subscribers, I can schedule my videos, so I can upload them in advance and release a new one every Thursday. I’ll make Become Uber Human one of the best self improvement channel on Youtube (I definitely want the channel to stay away from mainstream “man self help”, like “7 ways to shave your face” and “how to open a beer bottle without a bottle opener!”)
- Make $100,000.00 USD a year with BecomeUberHuman.com
I had internal conflicts on monetizing this blog because I don’t want this blog to turn into another shitty self improvement blog that people use as a money grab. No, I don’t want to promote some shitty “Six Pack Abs shortcut” e-book. This blog is about integrity and transparency and helping others to become Uber Human.
Everyone have bills to pay and food to put on the table, right? I wrote an ebook and have a master mind group and I will make it the best master mind and ebook out there. I also promote Uber Net, which makes me money.
What’s the difference between a professional and an amateur? The professional gets paid. The more I get paid, the more I can expand the UberHuman brand and make this one of the finest self improvement website on the Internet and help people for generations to come.
Originally, I was going to do mobile marketing.
I invested about close to $800 and 1 month of my time doing mobile marketing.
What was I doing? I was buying ads that displayed on apps. And when someone clicked on the ads and signed up for something, I got paid. I was advertising stuff like dating sign ups and leads for major companies … but then I stopped because it didn’t feel right. It felt pretty fucking pointless and I had no passionate for it. In fact, I hated it.
My original goal is to make $250k USD a year with mobile marketing but my heart isn’t in it, so I quit. I didn’t want to sell my soul doing something I hate.
And then there are my lesser goals like:
- Get a model tier Korean girlfriend
- Train in Muay Thai 3-4 times a week and eventually move to Thailand to train and fight professionally
- Continue reading and language study every day
Make 2016 an amazing year!
I know 2016 is going to be the most amazing year for you, comrade. So put your game face on, and let’s march and sprint towards the summit of greatness together. Let’s not waste a single day or hour on trivial stuff.
Define your goal, work towards it every day and never, ever give up. After all, you only fail if you give up. 🙂
BecomeUberHuman.com isn’t going anywhere. I’m going to be this the finest self improvement blog on the Internet but I need your help. If you find this blog useful, tell your friends on Facebook about it. Join my e-newsletter. Spread the words. My goal is to help 500 million people become Uber Humans.
Here I am, raising my drink and toasting to you. Cheers!
PS: Do you like this blog post? It’s more of a conversational style and less preachy. Let me know what you think, comrades. I’m here to please.
