This is massive post on how to become an superior man – spiritually, economically, sexually and physically. In other words, get women, get money, lift like a titan and become a God yourself.
“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Hey comrade – how are you?
You’re about to enter where few men have gone before.
Many have tried but failed. Lesser men will sneer at you, as you march onto the path of greatness. You will ascend to the path of greatness, through your blood, sweat and tears.
For those who seek the path of becoming an alpha, I welcome you with opened arms.
The majority of men will never accomplish their dreams, only to watch it wither away, as they live their lives through sports and TV shows. They grow old and bitter and die a squandered life.
Indeed, the path to greatness is difficult. Out of 1000 readers, maybe 4 will take action and achieve long term success.
Don’t let that be you.
Stand tall and march, my brother, as we climb towards greatness, step by step.
This guide gives you actionable advice how to get there.
It’s time to become an alpha male.
Most men will never live to their ideal self (and how to do something about it)
Reason are 2 folds:
1. Biology. People don’t want to expend more effort then what is necessary.
Perhaps this is biology at work, it’s need to conserve energy. Say what? You want me to go for a run? No thank you, I got some TV shows to watch. I’m going to relax right here, on this couch.
That’s why there is an obesity epidemic in North America, simply because the brain loves sugar, salty and fatty food. People are fat yet they can’t stop eating because the reptilian part of their brain compels them to eat.
Like puppets on strings, they’re slaves to their biological master.
On top of that, biology doesn’t care if you live a “successful” life or not, as long as you pass on your genes. The human software is like a virus – your mission in life is go replicate yourself. From DNA stand point, even if the guy is a fat fuck with impending heart surgery, it doesn’t matter because he made babies with his wife.
2. We’re told it’s okay to be average.
In first world countries, we got air conditioning, high speed internet, good health care and endless entertainment – so what’s the fucking talk about “living your dream”?
Put in the 8 hours of work per day, go home and relax. Enjoy life! Don’t think so hard and be happy. Why are you trying so hard to step out of line?
The social narrative goes like this: go to college, get a job, get married, have kids, buy a house, work some more, retire and fuck Thai hookers in Bangkok (lady boys optional)
As Henry David Thoreau once said, the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. But you, my brother, you’re different.
There is so much more to life than being stuck in traffic, working 9 to 5, and getting yelled at. Living the “American dream” is akin to someone living in a cave all their life – they haven’t ventured outside to greener pasture … yet.
It’s time to hatch an escape plan … to become uber human.
How to escape where you are now, and get to where you want to be …
Here are 4 universal things that will make you happy:
1. Wealth (money and free time to do whatever the fuck you want)
3. Relationship with awesome people and good sex with love ones
4. What you do with the majority of your time – it’s call it obession.
Call it the “big four”. It’s the foundations where you should focus most of your effort on improving.
Every action and decision you make every day should focus on the 4 things above. Think of the 4 areas as pillars to your happiness. A rich man who is fat and boring is undesirable, so is a handsome guy who is chronically broke and lives with his mother.
Yes, you can have everything in life – if you’re willing to put in the effort …
Take a hard and honest look at your life. What’s missing?
It’s not fun being honest. Nobody wants to admit that he is a poor loser, or a fattie with a small dick. For thoes who have the courage to face the truth – and have the ambition to fix it – the world is his oyster.
For starters, ask yourself:
1. What is my ideal job or businesss?
2. What is my ideal spouse?
For example, you want your perfect 10/10 wife that you wouldn’t mind impregnanting 10 times. In order to get there, perhaps you have to hit the gym, dress better and work on perfecting your social skills.
By building the foundation, when you see your perfect 10/10 wife on the street, you have the confidence (foundation) to approach her. Like a wolf, you swoop down on your prey.
By having your ideal job / business in mind, you’ll take the right action to obtain that job.
It’s important to do what you love, since you’ll spend 10 full waking years of your life working. According to a recent survey by mega staff firm “Man Power Group”, 80 percent of people are dis-satisfied with their job. A shit tier job will crush a man’s spirit, leaving him dead inside.
Getting your ideal job and spouse will contribute 80 percent to your happiness.
Write down what you want in life. Stick the piece of paper on your bed room door, where it greets you every morning.
Do not ignore your potential to become great. Your soul knows your greatness. The difference between men of great importance (both past and presence) and you is their conviction to follow their visions.
Take small actions to achieve your wildest dream. Every moment you procrastinate, your soul dies a little.
Look at a middle age man who shuffles to work – where is his zeal and vigor? Chances are, he has given his dream many years ago, to take a safe route of working some “okay” job that pays the bill. Don’t let that be you.
What you want in life, boils down to daily effort
Want to get fit? Exercise 60 minutes, 3-5 times a week and eat well. Want to get more money? Build a business. Want to get more dates? Approach more women.
Easier said than done. If you were to observe 100 people who go to the gym as a “new year resolution”, only 2 of them will last 12 months later. Likewise, only 5 percent of poker players make money.
Why is that? Human nature.
People will not expend more energy than they have too. Couple that with a social narrative that “it’s okay to be average”, we have society littered with average people.
However, if you resolve to have a hard work ethic, the world is your oyster.
Success is a narrow path. It boils down to routines and good habits. Extreme focus, for days, weeks and years on end. And taking the right action, for days, weeks and years on end. Also getting rid of all distractions, not paying attention to shit that does not matter.
Success begins with the mindset (trite but true)
Think of your mindset and beliefs as a “software”. You install some great software into your mind, you’re going to be a great winner.
Instead of an empowering mind, people come with faulty mindsets, whether it’s low self esteem, guilt, a loser mindset or laziness. If you came across a loser, it’s because he had a fucking loser mindset.
The most important take away point is to never quit. Say it takes you 10 years to build a business, or have your ideal body. 10 years is a long time. But guess what? 10 years is going to pass by, regardless. Sow your seed and reap the rewards.
Here are some finer points to having a winner mindset:
1. Look at what the public is doing – and then do the opposite
When “everyone is doing it”, it reeks of mediocrity. People have new year resolution, where once a year, they face their problems and try to fix it – only to fail. Instead of new year resolution, have every day resolutions.
The popular recommendation by mainstream finance guru is to save 10 percent of your salary. Screw that – instead, try saving 50 percent of your salary (if you’re making 50k post-tax and live on 25k a year, you’re on the fast track to retirement)
Waiting until you’re 65 to retire is a popular mantra. Why wait until you’re 65 to retire? By then, your youth has faded, your body constantly aches and the music is too loud.
Instead of waiting until 65 to retire, take “mini-retirements” (a year or two off here and there) through out your working years.
2. Impress only those who matter
The world is filled with people who don’t deserve your attention. Their opinions simply doesn’t count. You do not have to argue with them, or create a good impression. The best defense against unworthy people of your time is to smile, nod and move on with your life. Forget them.
However, if you meet people who are wealthier, more knowledgeable and better social connections then you, then it pays huge dividends to make a good impression. Never forget this.
3. Focus on improving yourself
Become the richer, more charismatic, fit and smarter version of yourself. Every day, you goal is to become a better version of yourself. Think of it as an incremental game.
For beginners, I recommend hitting the gym, meditation, eating healthy food, learning social skills, some type of marketing skills like copy writing, keeping a tidy apartment, good hygiene, better fashion sense, reading. Don’t know where to start? Just pick one and work on that.
As a rule, don’t compare yourself to others – it will only make you unhappy. Instead, compare yourself to last year. If you’re making progress towards a better you, that’s the only thing that counts.
What average people waste their time on
We know time is precious and we’ll all die – at some point in the future.
However, death seems abstract, as we imagine ourselves dying at old age, shitting our pants in some retirement home before passing out. So we live and squander our days as if we’ll never die.
According to Nielsen numbers, the average American spends 34 hours a week watching TV, which amounts to 9 years of sitting in front of the tube.
If you ever encounter a stupid middle age man, it’s because he squandered his 20s and 30s doing watching TV.
In contrast, the average adult reads 5 books per year (a surprisingly low number. A book typically takes 6 hours to finish)
If you really want to “make it”, you need to avoid TV – including TV shows, sports and celebrity gossips. Same goes for video games. The enlightened man has no time such trivial matter.
Become a man of virtues (important!)
Rude people who road rage. People who buy cars they can’t afford. People who are 300 lbs (136 kgs), women who are self entitled and bitchy. Grown adults watching children TV shows. Divorce rates hovering at 50 percent. Seems like a culture of decadence and degeneracy.
Interesting. Humans can be enlightened beings or savage creatures.
What is the opposite of decadence? Virtue. Let’s be virtuous and become the enlightened man. Virtue is defined as “behavior showing high moral standards”.
Here are the top virtues we can agree on:
1. Frugality – in a world run by rampant consumerism, planned obsolescence and seasonal fashion, let’s save our money and invest it. Rule of thumb: upgrade electronics once every 4-5 years. Buy clothes that are timeless. Abstain from fashion trends (remember Ed Hardy shirts and pink polos?) Reduce your entertainment expense. Strive to save 50 percent of your paycheck.
2. Curiosity – have a thirst for knowledge. Knowledge is power, but applied knowledge is devastating. Stick to reading books. Read about science, religion, history, politics, philosophy, psychology. Reading fiction books are okay, depending on the author. Generally speaking, reading fiction is for plebs.
3. Ambition – have goals and strive to complete it. What are your goals? Write it down. Every day, take actions to achieve your goals. People squander their lives away watching pleb tier TV shows or sport games. No you, comrade. It’s time to rise above the herd.
4. Courage – have courage to follow your dreams. Ignore your inner doubts, and the foul discouragement of others. The most rewarding thing in life is the most difficult. Avoid what is easy. As the old saying goes “Today, do what others won’t. Tomorrow, you can live your life how others can’t”
5. Patience, perseverance and persistence: only through hard work, strategic thinking and persistence can we achieve our dreams. The average man lacks resolve and persistence. Example: the new year resolution gym crowd.
6. Good temper – control your anger. Petty things cannot disturb your steel tempered mind. Road rage? Ha. Related virtue is pleasure in moderation.
7. Contentment – Having a shitty day? It’s often we take for granted what we have – some people live without eyes, limbs and Internet porn.
8. Social virtues – be fair to every one and always strive to tell the honest truth. Be respectful, polite, un-pretentious, friendly and clean.
9. Kindness – give those in need a helping hand. Ignore your enemies because you don’t have time to waste on petty feud. Develop compassion and sympathy for those in needs.
Follow these virtues to become the enlightened man. Not for your ego but for the best of humanity. Devote yourself to practice the virtues.
How to become a man desired by women
Love. We all want the high calibre women, the beautiful vixen, the angel from heaven – the woman who you don’t marry and have kids with. We want desirable women because she has a pretty face, plump breasts, a feminine personality that is charming in itself.
What makes a woman attracted to a man?
Because of evolutionary psychology, what’s attractive to a woman, isn’t attractive to a man. For example, as men we don’t care about an overly confident, assertive woman. Nor do we care about a woman’s Ph.D in environmental studies. Or how popular she is.
A woman’s attraction to a man, depends on how many “attraction switches” he has. Things like fame, looks, confidence, charisma all plays in the equation. Same reason why groupies fuck rockstars. Or bored middle age house wives taking the big black cock, because he got the muscular looks.
Just like how men love big tits and wide hips (again, because of evolutionary psychology) women want to feel safe. She wants to know that her man can protect her against the world. That’s why being tall makes her feel safe, having big muscles makes her feel safe, money makes her feel safe.
Women are attracted to masculine polarity, just like how men are attracted to feminine polarity.
When we think of feminine polarity, we think of being coy, self restrain from riding too many dicks, an angel from heaven. We think of emotional vulnerability. It’s naturally attractive because we don’t want no feminist bitch with hairy arm pits who burps and makes fart jokes.
Likewise, women are attractive to masculine polarity. This means being goal oriented, emotional control, wit and humour, strength and courage. Women want to be safe around her men, no women wants a bitch ass pussy beta male white knight.
For recommended reading on feminine and masculine polarity, read “The Way of the Superior Man” by David Deida.
What you want to do is flip all the attraction switches, so having a bit of everything helps.
1. Good looks (good grooming, hygienes, lifting weights, dress well)
2. Charisma (“game”, boldness, confidence, humor etc)
3. Wealth (save money and invest)
So say you’re not the smoothest player around, and you’re starting from the bottom’s up, this is what I recommend.
1. Dress better – better haircut, better form fitting clothes, better hygienes and grooming.
2. Lift weights (ideally, should be a life long pursue)
3. Learn game (youtube “RSD videos”), start learning how to do cold approaches, become charming, be bold, funny, confident, how to deal with women.
4. Lifestyle upgrade – perhaps move to a better city, life down town where all the night life is, or even a new country with tons of women instead of feminist with hairy arm pits and weirdly shaped glasses.
You dress good, you feel good. You hit the gym and get bigger, you feel greater. When the time goes to make the first good impression, you will be on point.
How far you want to fornicate with women is up to you – some men find a high quality girl and settle down, while others have a harem of Japanese women.
A personal story:
I travelled to a foreign country (Japan), where I proceed to had sex with a beautiful 27 years old. I banged her in the ass and pussy. 6 hours later, after she left my home, I brought my other date (with an amazing ass because she does yoga), where I proceed to bang her in the pussy. After our furious copulation session, I laid in the dark, with her snuggling in my arms. I looked at the ceiling and muttered to myself: “I was a skinny nerd in high school …”
Some rules on women – don’t leave this at home …
1. No women is perfect. Have a girlfriend with a bubbly personality, who haven’t sucked too many dicks, who isn’t crazy, and who has a high sex drive. You’re all set. Enjoy her feminine personality – she’s your personal cheer leader.
2. Don’t worry about cheating. If your girlfriend cheats, you leave her without any drama. As a man with options, there are many women who want to gladly jump into your dick. Thanks to your learned charisma and low inhibition, you can approach women in public and get dates, which puts you above 97 percent of men. What did Jay Z said? “I got 99 problems but the bitch ain’t one”. Being jealous is beta.
3. Don’t get married – at least not in America. The women takes half your shit, you pay alimony, while she runs away to ride more dicks. If you insist on getting married, as a man with option, get married when you’re 40 to a 25 years old. You heavily tilt the odds to your side. As a side note, don’t have relationships with single moms.
4. The best game is getting your shit together: getting fit, having fashion sense, wealth, wide circle of friends, well travelled, can fuck like a horse, have your own apartment in a nice location in town and charisma itself. In short, an alpha male that women will fight amongst themselves just to lick your dick.
5. While “pick up artist” material is okay, there is alot of bullshit. Be awry.
Lift weights – get big! Come on, man.
Every man should lift weights. Lifting weights builds resolve, breaks mental limitations, and helps you become bigger and stronger, which is your God’s given rights.
The average Western male got man titties. His turkey neck jiggles as he climbs the stair. His beer gut hangs in front of him, like an aborted fetus. He fucks his “girlfriend” for 90 seconds before running out of breath. His ancestors, brave tribal warriors, are rolling in their graves. What a fucking disgusting piece of shit.
Don’t let this be you. It’s time to hit the gym.
Here’s the most simple and best way to gain muscles and lose fat:
Day One – Pull (Monday)
Deadlifts (conventional, sumo, snatch-grip,trap bar) – 5 sets x 5 reps
Rows (barbell, dumbbell, machine or t-bar) – 5 sets x 5 reps
Weighted Pull-Ups or Chins – 5 sets x 5 reps
Day Two – Push (Wednesday)
Flat, Incline, Dumbbell, or Machine Bench Press – 5×5
Military, Dumbbell or Machine Shoulder Press – 5×5
Dips or Close-Grip Bench – 5×5
Day Three – Legs (Friday)
Back or Front Squats or Leg Press – 5×5
Lunges, Split Squat, or Step-Ups – 5×5
Calf Raises – 3×10 reps
Why I like this routine: It’s minimalist. It’s focused on the important lifts that will make you gain muscle and become stronger. You can get fit just 3 hours a week at the gym.
The routine in itself doesn’t matter as much as the effort. Too many people get stuck in “analysis paralysis”, preventing them from take action. A shitty routine with maximum efforts give you better result then a perfect routine with shitty efforts.
Recommendation: Learn proper form. Go on Youtube and watch the videos on how to properly bench press, squats, over head press etc. Eat big, sleep, progressively lift heavier weights week by week, and you’ll get stronger and bigger. Never give up. Lifting weights is something you do for life.
Pitfall to watch out for:
Fitness magazines will sell you un-necessary diet supplements. Personal trainers will sell you complicated work out routines. Fitness stores will sell you “must have” gym clothes. Everything seems so complicated.
Nothing is further from the truth.
Lifting weights is simple. Focus on the compound exercises, lift heavy weights and eat a balanced diet. Lifting weights seems complicated because people try to sell you things.
However, there are some men who lifted weight for years, with little or mediocre results. Why? The problem is 3 folds: lack of time, effort, or shitty diet (or a combination)
Some men “breeze” through their gym session, lifting with bad form or not enough weight. They put in the hours into the gym but they’re not making progress. Then there are men who lift heavy weights and eat properly but they don’t put enough hours lifting weights.
Put at least 3 hours into the gym each week. Get proper sleep and eat well. Making muscle gains is guaranteed. Hiring a personal trainer with their convoluted routine is not necessary. To have better lifting forms, simply watch tutorials on youtube or ask guys in for help (the scary body builder in the corner bench pressing 300 lbs? Majority of them are the nicest, most helpful people you’ll meet)
Think of lifting weights as a life long habit, much like masturbation or taking a shower. You know you’re fit when you look at the mirror and staring back at you is a beast. Other men will respect and fear you, women will get their pussy wet at the sight of your chisel muscles.
Start lifting weights today – the iron calls out your name …
Ways to get rich! (make money rain!)
So you want to get rich – make it rain with money, and become a free man, as oppose to a slave, working to make someone else rich.
The most important step (right now) is to live below your means. The consumerism culture in America is obnoxious – people who lease cars they couldn’t afford, going on vacations out of their budget.
Lower your rent and transportation cost, live a more modest lifestyle.
Then – work and invest your money. Invest in the stock market. Develop secondary skills (whether it’s investing in the stock market, marketing, poker, other technical skills)
The path to riches is working hard, save and invest your money.
Some people get rich through opening a business, others get rich through being a cheap and investing all of their money into the stocks market. The path to riches is many but the formula is the same – live modestly, invest the money into assets. Rise and repeat.
Make your money work for you. Since opening a business is not for everyone, I recommend the stock market. A proven strategy for winning at the stock market is picking good mutual funds (or ETFs) and combine that with bonds (your portfolio of 70/30 percent ratio is good)
Yes – there is always hype on the latest hot stock, or a “proven formula” for beating the market. Ignore it. Invest your money in a proven way – ETFs, mutual funds – and watch your money grow. Slow and steady wins the race.
I recommend investing in the stock market because it forces you to save money.
Or – take a part-time job, and take all of that salary and put it into investing in the stock market. Put the money in it and forget it. Historically, the stock market always goes up, if you ignore the dip.
Why you should have a minimalist lifestyle
“The things you own end up owning you. It’s only after you lost everything that you’re free to do anything” ~ Tyler Durden.
Living in a consumerism society, it’s easy to fall into the “gadget trap” of buying useless things. Recently, a elderly man in Japan was found illegally dumping 500 porno DVD (including the cases!) at the local park, much to the surprised of moms strolling around with their children.
Instead of creating, we consume. It’s an endless cycle of consuming movies, or buying the latest phone. And endless trap to waste our time and money (of course, the corporate owners know this, and they’re clasping their hands together and giggling as they look at their quarter earnings)
Let’s not be the average Joe. Instead, let’s save our money, invest and become a free man. Let’s create something of value for ourselves and the world. After all, the more you help people, the richer you get.
I recommend the “minimalist” lifestyle” which means own very little things. Minimalist doesn’t mean cheap or frugal. I own very expensive electronics and clothes, just very little of it. All of my worldly things fit in a school back pack. All of my personal belongings are: laptop, e-reader, cell phone, clothes, toiletries, important documents and IDs.
It’s not a dick waving contest of having less stuff. It’s about realizing that material things doesn’t mean shit, contrary to what advertisers had us to believe. I have a 60 inch, flat screen TV (bought in 2014) that I haven’t turned on in months. Instead, I prefer to watch things on my laptop.
The steps you can take now, to begin your minimalist life, is to donate or sell 90 percent of your material things. Clothes, DVDs, furnitures, gadgets and doo-dads and crap around the house. Downsize until you can’t downsize anymore. Now stop. Congrats to a freer life!
Now use the extra money you have to invest, travel around the world, or eat a really expensive kobe steak 🙂
In conclusion, save money aggressively, invest money aggressively, then laugh all the way to the bank. With merging technology in the life extension field, it’s good to have spare money when you’re old.
If you’re in your 20s or 30s now, by the time you’re in your 60s they’ll be able to 3D print a heart or kidney.

The hidden productivity secret hidden in plain sight – success is all about good routines and habits
Success is all about good routines and habits
We know, intuitively, that we should have good habits. Going to the gym, reading good books, eating healthy food, making new friends and job connections. Writing, contemplating, making new goals.
However, it’s hard as fuck, because the siren of distraction calls us. Video games, TV shows and instagram of that slut showing her pussy at us. Our limbic brain says “Yes, yes! Look at that pussy”
Tell your limbic brain, “Hell no! Nobody has time for that!”
It’s time to reclaim back our time.
The “secrets” to productivity used by geniuses throughout history …
How did history’s most brilliant minds scheduled their days? According to the book, “Daily Rituals: How Artists Work” by Mason Currey, he discovered brilliant scientists and composers had the same daily routines throughout their lives. Thus, their productivity sky rocket above mere mortals.
I meditate for 20 minutes, every morning. Why meditation? Because it’s an act of self discipline. Think of it as an exercise to strengthen your will power. Meditation reduces stress, allows you to ponder the meaning of life and death, and helps you seek spiritual salvation.
I read 35 pages a day – that’s 1 book every 10 days. Reading a book isn’t enough – it needs to be a high quality book, written by the best minds in history.
At the bare minimum, every man should read, meditate and exercise daily.
Bad habits to drop …
1. Stop watching TV
The average Joe, after returning home from his day job, watches TV for a couple hours (or similarly, video games)
A man who wants to sculpt his life cannot afford to watch an hour of reality TV. Sheeples watch TV for entertainment.
I haven’t watched TV in over a decade. Same thing for video games – this is from a person who played video games during his childhood and teenage years. Drop the video games and TV habit and replace it with reading and exercise.
While there is nothing wrong with watching sports, per se, would you rather be the fit guy throwing the ball or the fat fan eating nacho cheese sitting on the couch and cheering his favourite team? Be a player, not a spectator.
Not once in my life, have I sat down and watch a full sports game (baseball, hockey, football, you name it) nor did I follow sports. It’s a waste of time.
To get value out of watching TV, watch interesting documentaries or great films. Skip the puke inducing reality TV shows, negative news and sport shows.
According to US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American spends 3 hours a day watching TV, which amounts to 9 years worth of TV watching or 80, 846 hours of TV watching.
Mediocre habits, mediocre life.
2. Stop hanging out with people you don’t like
Life is too short to hang out with shit tier people – they got to go. Selfishly guard your time and spend it wisely. Avoid people who bitch, complain, are negative, and don’t get anywhere in life. Let them wallow in their own misery.
Spend time with older men who can be your mentor. Instead of repeating novice mistakes, these old men will guide you to the light.
Be warned: never listen to old people who are un-successful. No matter how convincing or well meaning their advice is, it’s still shit tier.
Would you listen fitness advice from a fat middle age man who claims to be fit in his 20s? Or get rich advice from a guy who makes $20k a year? Never listen to people who don’t never made it.
And remember: 10 percent of women are fit for relationships, 30 percent are fit for casual sex, 60 percent you can safely ignore. Sometimes you do an approach and you stumble upon the 60 percent of undesirable female (not that good looking or mentally deficit) simply nod and move on. There is not much to see here.
Little things adds up to big things
Imagine average Joe coming home from work. Instead of cracking a beer and vegetating in front of the TV before bed time … he hits the gym. After a year of training, his body is an armor of muscles. Men and women admire him. His wife gives him blow jobs on demand.
He reads for an hour a day. Because his read books that enriches his mind, he made better life decisions. He eats better food. He saved and invests his money. Perhaps he even works on his own business part time.
There’s an old saying that goes – those who don’t read, live only once. Those who read lives the life of a thousand men.
After reading, he meditates for 20 minutes. What used to raise his stress level is now met with zen like calm. He’s more in tune with his spiritual self. The more he meditates, the more self actualize he becomes.
The “secret” to success has always been, and will be, taking the right action every day. Refer to chart below.
Ideally, you want to optimize your life.
According to Harvard Health Watch, the average person spends 100 minute commuting to work. In their life time, they will spend 1580 days (or 4 years) inside their car. On average, a person will spend 153 days of their life searching for missing items (keys?). The average American spends 3 hours a day watching TV. Over the course of their live, that’s 9 years of watching TV.
So what does this all mean?
Ideally, you want to optimize your life. Less wasted time means more time to become awesome.
1. Live really close to work, so you can walk or bike. Right – no more wasting 1580 days of your life driving to work.
2. Learn how to prepare your meals and cook in a crock pot. Spend less then an hour a week cooking food. Here’s the link to the youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPwwxpR0f2I
3. Carry a book with you at all times. The average person will spend 6 months over their life time waiting (waiting for train, doctor’s appointment, line up in amusement park etc)
4. Practice minimalism. Have less stuff. Less stuff means less time cleaning the house, maintaining things, looking for lost things, or deciding what to wear. Less stuff also means more money saved in the bank.
Think deeply of how you spend your time.
In conclusion – get going, because your life starts today
It’s a nice summer day. You notice an old man at the park, staring at the pond, contemplating. He’s looking back at his youth, pondering about the things he’s done, before the death reaper snatches his body and soul, collapsing his flesh into an inanimate heap.
A youth walks by, looking at the old man but doesn’t think much of it.
However, the youth forgets that his destiny is the same as the old man. Alas, old age seems to be decades from now, in some vague distant future.
Nothing is further from the truth.
You will become an old man before you know it, possibility living life full of regrets. Don’t let this be you. Guard your time wisely. Have the courage to pursue your dream. Don’t shrink at fear. Do not coward at setbacks. Have the resolve to walk the narrow path, and become your ideal self.
The journey is long and hard. At times you’ll doubt yourself. But once you reached the summit, you’ll look back at your journey. It will be the most amazing adventure you’ll ever have.
Once it’s said and done, you’ll bask in your own glory, enjoying the fruits of your labor. The sheeps near the foot of the mountain, will crane their necks, looking upward at your enlightened being.
The higher conscious sheep will look at you for aspiration. The lower conscious sheep will bahhh and maaaa at you, telling you to get the fuck off the summit. “You think you’re special?” they baaaa in unison.
But you smile inside, because you know you deserved it. Your effort, your courage and your resolved paid off.
Your time has come. Your great journey starts today.
