Everyone starts somewhere.Your point zero.
You went on the internet seeking the knowledge to help you improve your life.You started learning and learning,you just shut your mouth and read everything you could find.
This should describe your first year.Your first year should be dedicated to consume as much information as possible.You are a newbie.
But there it goes.One,two,three years you are reading and reading every book and every post on the internet.You still didn’t make a lot of progress in your life.
Wanna know why?Because you don’t apply what you learn.You spend TOO much time consuming and zero time doing and living.I have been there.
It’s ok.Here’s what i did:
1) Go for a walk.Everyday. When you find yourself too much inside your head,go out,get some sun and clear your head.
2)Meditate. The best way to get focus,unplug and asses your priorities is to sit in a room,alone with your thoughts and meditate.
3)Most people don’t act because they are scared of failure.Embrace it.Don’t be scared,you will fail again and again,you will also change as a person.Be open and accept everything.
4)Lift some heavy ass weights.There is nothing more grounding than doing squats and deadlifts.
5)Keep a notebook.Write a to do list.That way you will have a plan,a step by step, on what to do everyday,so you avoid procrastination and actually move forward.
6)Riff.Talk with other people.Talk to the cashier at the bank or the grocery shop.Small talk,although boring,can get you out of your shell and make you comfortable talking to strangers and expose yourself.Most internet dwellers are socially retarded.
7)Get a hobby.It can be a musical instrument,a foreign language,dance class or some kind of sport.Preferably,i would choose something that includes other people,so you get a chance to socialize.
8)Finally,there is too much noise and useless information out there.Every 1-2 months,take a week off.What do i mean?For 1 week DO NOT consume any information.Don’t read,don’t watch TV,don’t go on social media.If you want information about something you are forced to talk with people.You will see your creativity go through the roof.You will have so many ideas,you will not be able to act on everything.
Now let’s examine your life from another perspective and see what is really going on and why inaction is so fatal:
You read.You dress well and you eat right.
You spend a lot of time consuming book after book and post after post,learning how to make money,how to be alpha ,how to meet women etc.
Hours upon hours.You spend a lot of time self improving.
Meanwhile,there is an ugly,beta,fat fuck out there,with a girlfriend,a decent job and a solid social group.
He hasn’t read a book since he was in college,he wears an oversized shirt and a baggy pair of pants,he eats junk every day and he never lifted anything over 5 pounds.
Wait…how this guy can achieve anything?
He lives his life.He takes action.He does not spend his whole day in the house,reading up forums,waiting for the perfect magical blog post that will give him the solutions to all of his problems.
He talks to people,to women,he socialize and has fun.
Self improvement can be another excuse for inaction.It’s another way to feed your wounded ego in order to feel special,because you are underachieving in your life. Self improvement can actually be the worst form of procrastination and mental masturbation.
You can be the wisest man,the most good looking,the most confident but if you don’t take action,you will never succeed .
You don’t need to put your life on hold,until the perfect moment comes and change your life.
That’s the bullshit,generic stuff you see chicks posting on tumblr.
You want something?Go get it.
Now.Now it’s the time.
Do and improve.
Period.You can’t go around that.
The only think you can attain online is advice,tools to get there faster and with more efficiency.
In the end it’s up to you to go from A to B and fulfill your desires.
Spend more time doing than improving.That’s the only way to improve even faster.
Give up the notion of being better than the others,because you ‘know stuff’.
Truth is,if you actively trying to change your life,you are above average…actually WAY above average.But notice the ‘actively’.
If you only spend your time reading and not doing,then you are not better than the next guy who spends 8 hours watching netflix.
The process of self improving should be enjoyable of course,but should not be confused with entertainment.You need to challenge yourself to learn.
This journey is a marathon.A never ending one.The idea is to go beyond the finish line.
There should be never be a point where you say ‘I am done improving’.The moment you stop learning you become a prisoner of your own limiting and pre-determined thought patterns.You stall.You die.
So,since you will never be perfect,there is not a perfect time to act.So act as soon as possible.NOW.Yesterday is late.
They say your biggest opponent is yourself.I say your biggest opponent and friend,is TIME.
That’s it folks!
