Mind set is everything.
Mind set is the difference between Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime and a fat man rubbing his belly and crotch in circular motions while watching cable TV on Saturday.
Mind set is the difference between an international playboy with a harem of women and a 22 years old kissless virgin who felt entitled to “beautiful blond women” which he couldn’t get, so he killed a couple of them before shooting himself in the head.
Mind set is the difference between a man driving his $75,000.00 Tesla car and a working class Joe driving his beat up, rusty Ford truck (he blames the government and the economy for his woes)
You want the mindset of a winner … an uber human.
Below are 4 timeless principles that will guide you to the top. Think of the principles as steroid injection for your mind.
Consistency wins the race
Some people go fast, some people go slow. But everyday you must go. Find a pace where you can do something every day, for the rest of your life without burning out. A good place to start is 25 minutes a day.
Consistency adds up over time. Examples:
Write 1 page a day. In a year’s time, that’s 365 pages – long enough to be a novel
Lose 1.5 pounds a month. That’s 18 pounds in 12 months
Finished 30 books a year by reading 25 minutes a day
Save $10 a day. That’s $3650 – a nice chunk for vacation or investment.
It’s human nature to ignore incremental improvement. We’re biologically programmed to stay the same. It’s your job to break out of the shell with your mighty fists and raise above mere mortals.
Embrace small actions.
It’s OKAY to lift weight for 25 minutes instead of 2 hours. It’s fine to meditate for 5 minutes. Nothing embarrassing about bench pressing with 20 lbs dumb bells. What’s embarrassing is not being consistent.
Walk a narrow road
You cannot be good at everything. But you can be amazing at something.
Embrace what you’re good at and change the world. Don’t “follow your passion” – that’s for bored middle-age house wives. You know what I’m passionate about? Farting in public, next to bored middle age house wives.
People walk the wide road in life because they feel safe with others around them. You walk the narrow road, by yourself, as you climb to the top of Mt. Greatest.
This means ignoring what average people say.
“It can’t be done!”
“You’re going to fail!”
“Who the fuck do you think you are!” they screamed.
Instead, focus on your path to greatness. This means taking actions EVERY DAY on where you’re now and where you want to go.
Do this often enough and your brain rewires itself. Eventually, you become. You’re not a guy who lifts weight, you’re a body builder. You’re not a guy who sale things, you’re a business owner. You don’t merely read books, you a scholar.
Step by step, day by day, you eventually reached on top of Mt. Greatest. From there, you observe the sheeple sitting at the base of the mountain, still watching TV. You’re glad you took the first step walking up, many years ago.
What will you do today?
Embrace pain, discomfort and failures
Average people avoid discomfort, like a man who avoids a herpes infected woman. Do the opposite of what average people do and you’ll rise to the top.
If you observe any “starting a business” seminar, the audience will be filled with middle aged men and women. The 40 years old man realized that he won’t get rich working 9 to 5 but it’s already too late because he has a wife, kids, mortgage payments and a dog that keeps shitting on the carpet.
The best time to start a business is in your 20s when you’re free of obligations. When you start with nothing, you got nothing to lose. Go to school, work on your business after school. Or, hold a full-time job and on your business at night.
Failing is okay. Losing money is okay. What’s NOT okay is giving up. Your soul knows greatness. Your destiny is to become great.
The world is littered with people who failed. They’re failures not because they failed but because they never got back up. So they’re laying on the couch, watching sports on TV while sipping beer. They merely exist, like a plant in a dark room.
Building a business is stressful. Picking up a woman at the coffee shop is potentially embarrassing. Doing squats at the gym gives you a sore ass the next day.
… but today, you must do what others won’t, so tomorrow you can live how others can’t.
What’s hard today will be easier tomorrow. What’s easy today will be harder tomorrow. Sounds counter intuitive but it’s true.
Over come procrastination and grab the world by the testicles.
After all, you’re an uber human.
Develop an aesthetic body and mind
You know what’s disheartening to see? A rich fat guy.
You can’t enjoy life without good health. That’s why the uber human is both physically and intellectually aesthetic. You want to fuck a woman for 8 hours while reciting Shakespeare lines by heart. You want to explain metaphysics to her in a way that fucks her mind.
Eat healthy and heavy weights. Sometimes go for a run.
Life is never boring.
An aesthetic mind is always thinking, always curious. Go deep into the rabbit hole and get mind fucked. Read philosophy books from the greatest thinkers like Plato, Friedrich Nietzsche and Seneca. Study western (existentialism, metaphysics, ethics) and eastern philosophy (Taoism, Confucius, Zen Buddhism)
Today is your time to become great
Who’s awesome? You’re awesome.
Life is tiring. The average person watches TV 3 hours a day because they want to relax with the little free time they have left over. Everyone has bills to pay and life is a struggle upwards.
To repeat, this blog isn’t catered to average people.
You’re the uber human who walk the extra 10 miles every day to become great. This means taking the 3 hours of free time for self-improvement. For those obsessed with success, self-improvement IS leisure.
An empowering mindset is difficult. Blame faulty social condition, mental disorders and brain fog from shitty food. It’s a uphill battle with the odds stacked against you.
Yet, the power is in your hands. Adopt the principles above and change your life forever.
- See the power of consistency. It doesn’t matter how big or small your steps but every day you must do. Eventually it will snowball into something huge.
- Walk a narrow road. Focus on yourself to become great. Ignore what others have to say. Average people are quick to speak their opinions but are slow to take action.
- Embrace pain, discomfort and failures. There are no easy days. Squatting in the gym will leave you with a sore ass. Starting a conversation with a random cutie in the coffee shop is potentially embarrassing. Starting a business can be stressful. But in the long term, you’ll be glad you did.
- Develop an aesthetic mind and body. It’s your God’s given rights to be aesthetic as fuck. To have a sea of wondering eyes admiring your aesthetic body and have people praise for your masterpiece art work.
