Have you ever been in a situation where someone points out to you that you’re contradicting yourself? It sounds pretty bad doesn’t it? But it’s not that bad as you might think. Contradicting yourself can be good or bad and it’s up to you to recognize if you’re doing the right thing. A buddy of mine recently pointed out that there were probably blogpost which would contradict each other in some way. He could be right but I don’t know everything that I’ve written in the past year. Writing is a way to clear my mind of thoughts. I write it down and forget about it. It’s a closed chapter.
Don’t pretend that you’re ok. You’re wasting precious time. Do you get what I mean? Probably not otherwise you wouldn’t read this post. Most people are pretending that they’re satisfied where they are. They pretend that they’re ok and they pretend that they haven’t got any ambitions in life. But everybody wants more out of life. Everybody is dreaming about something. It could be cars or fancy trips. What doesn’t matter. What really matters is that you don’t want to admit it. You’re scared to admit that you’ve got a burning obsession deep down inside of you. There’s nothing to be scared about, it’s really great to have an obsession.
More and more people are holding grudges towards others and this is really dangerous. I’ll explain in a minute why but first I’m going to tell you how I came up with this blog post. This must be the first time that I actually share my muse. So about one week ago we had Brazilian Ji Jitsu and we were sparring at the end. It was my first real training after I hadbeen injured for a week. During that sparring session I got in a really bad position and all my bodyweight was pressing on my neck (a bit like the candle pose from yoga). I basically tried to triangle him but he escaped and we got in a bad position (google it if you’ve got no clue what I’m talking about).
Let’s talk about getting and being in the zone here. The zone is a beautiful place where you can get amazing results. Most people just don’t seem to be able to get into the zone and there’s a good reason for it. They are driven by thoughts and emotions when they have to perform. You’ll never be able to get into the zone if you’re not able to be present in the moment. Forget about what people said to you 5 minutes ago. Forget about the stress that you’ve got because you’ve got to perform in the future you’ve got to forget about all of it. You’re not allowed to be driven by emotions in any way. You’re only allowed to be present in the moment.
Most people claim that the feelings or the motivation isn’t there when they have to do something. There is some kind of fear that’s imprisoning peoples mind and it’s a frustrating process. So you can know what you want and realize what you should do but still end up doing nothing. Did you realize that all our decision are based on our feelings? It’s all based on how we feel in the moment but there a problem in this kind of thinking. Most people will never be present in the moment. You need to unleash the power of now and learn to use your mind. Mel Robbins discussed this in her book The 5 Second Rule. Buy it here.
Let’s talk about dumb and dumber here. It’s actually a common fact that most people don’t get any smarter after the age of 21. Some are lucky and evolve till the age of 23 but it all ends after that. I peaked at the age of 23 and have been evolving ever since (I’m 24 at the moment). Most people know that it’s coming. They know that they’re reaching their limits. So what do they do? They accept it. Almost everyone accepts the fact that they’re about to decline in their mental age. You can spot easily who’s going to face this. It’s easy to tell who will live like 16 year old in the body of a 40 year old.
So why did I choose the title dumb and dumber you ask? Because somehow there’s always someone who fucks up even more. There’s always that one person who can amaze you with his stupidity. It seems impossible until someone does it am I right.
I’m an introvert, well I was born as one but I changed overtime. I learned how to fit in and become popular in college. But I just didn’t like it to be honest. I was surrounded by so many people but I still felt lonely. So I returned to being myself as soon as I got out of my depression. Most people don’t realize that I’m an introvert they have no clue what an introvert is. I guess that it’s a part of being an introvert, most people don’t even notice you. So how did I realize that I don’t need that much company as most people?
Let’s talk about being a gentleman. Most guys try or want to be a gentleman but they just can’t pull it off and there’s a good reason for it. They weren’t a man when they tried it so they’ll never be able to be a gentleman. You see a gentleman is soft but in a good way. He was a completely different guy before he became a gentleman. There are just some characteristics that you need to develop before you can call yourself a man. You need to become Mister Alpha instead of Mister Grey. So basically I’m telling you to toughen up instead of being a pussy.
Let me share you some advice from the greatest over here. There aren’t a lot of people who achieve greatness. Only 1% of the whole population is able to achieve it and that’s a shame. I believe that everybody has the potential to do something great in life but you can easily spot if someone will be great in life. You just know it about the way they talk and so on. There’s something different about them that makes them stand out. You actually have 3 kinds of people. The ones that make it, the ones that don’t make it and the ones that have the potential to make it. The latter are the most frustrating ones because they are the ones that mostly don’t make it as well.
Let’s talk about reality shows for a minute here. Normal people seem to be extremely fond of these shows and there’s a good reason for it. They can’t face their own problems so they’re looking for a way to escape their own fucked up reality. People get agitated when I bring stuff like this up. I’ve heard things like: “you’ve got it all figured out now that you’ve got your life back in order don’t you”. There’s a pretty simple rule: don’t ask my opinion if you can’t handle it. Don’t hate because I’ll serve you some fancy oneliners on a silver plate. Others keep on claiming that these shows are so damn funny but they’re not. I wouldn’t want to be the dad of one of those kids who’re participating in those reality shows.
