Do your surroundings really matter in life? A lot of people are asking this question lately because people misuse their surroundings to get nothing done. They’re just coming up with excuses to postpone the things that they think they want to do. But do they really matter? Well yes and no to be honest. Your surroundings can put you in a comfort zone which is dangerous but in the end it’s all up to you. The fun thing is that most people assume that good surroundings are everything you need to succeed in life.
Do you have good friends or toxic friends? The answer might surprise you. You’ll always have some toxic friend in your group so it’s better that you recognize them. Those people will use you when they need too and drop you when they want too. I have a small circle of friends and it’s my own choice. I don’t need that much friends to be honest. Most people are trying to be surrounded by people all the time and that’s why you can have some toxic friends. There’s a bigger chance that you’ve got them if you’ve got a big circle of friends. You’re completely fucked if you’re not able to be alone.
You’ll try all sorts of escapism and you won’t even realize it. So let’s take a look on how you can recognize your good friends.
I went bike riding yesterday to visit my grandfather. I was looking to get into the red zone which means that I’ll be exhausted to improve my endurance. So most people will wonder how a bike ride can contain a valuable lesson. Most people don’t realize that you can learn something from everything you do. You just have to be present in the moment. It’s really addictive to learn every single day although most people hate it. That’s the fault of our educational system.
People get dumb and dumber these days. It’s pretty sad to witness this whole trend. I’m pretty sure that some will even laugh at me when I would tell them that I learned a lesson from riding my bike. They can laugh all they want since I don’t care about the haters. Never return hate because the situation will only get worse.
Have you ever had to face fear? Sometimes there are little things that make us afraid but sometimes it’ll be the big things. You’ll always have to face fear in life. It’s just a part of it but most people just freeze. They tend to overthink everything because they’re not brave enough. They avoid it because they’re afraid to leave the herd that’s called society. In every decision that you make there’s an element of fun. Find the fun part and you’ll don’t want to do anything else in life. You can even do shit jobs and make it enjoyable. Let me guide you through your own fear.
We’ve all heard of karma but most people don’t know the real meaning of it. People talk about karma all the time in some weird ways. I’ve heard a lot that people will be hit by karma. It isn’t a material thing. It’s a guide on how to live a better life and most people just don’t get it. They don’t get it because they became dumber overtime. So I guess that you’re wondering what the real meaning behind karma is? It’s a bit like the law of sowing and reaping or action reaction. Something bad will happen to you when you do bad things. Or something good will happen to you when you do good things.
Will this always be the case? No you’ll still have losses in life. That’s inevitable but they shouldn’t define you as a person. I guess that the smart ones already know why I chose this particular title. Others will assume that bad things will happen to certain people.
Have you ever heard someone claim that they’re self made? There are some people who claim that but those people mostly had rich parents. Rich parents are a freaking curse but most people don’t realize it. They focus on the bling bling and forget about the rest. They just focus on the good and neglect the bad. Those people mostly don’t want to work hard while there’s nothing more addicting than hard work. So does being self made really exist? Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote the foreword for Tim Ferris his book Tools Of Titans. He claimed that he wasn’t self made at all and that was an eye opening vision. You see I never considered myself as self made but most people claim that I did it all on my own. That’s not true. Nobody ever did it on his own. We’re just too blind to see it.
In life you either win or lose it’s really that simple. Well that’s what most people assume. But is it really that simple? People hate losing because they can’t wrap their head around it. People always focus on the win but that comes with a potential side effect. Most people keep losing at one point in life so they start to focus on wins from the past. They brag about the things that they’ve got achieved and can’t move forward anymore. These people stop growing and won’t achieve anything if they’re not breaking this vicious cycle. You need to be present in the now. People have the wrong approach when it comes to a win or a loss. I’m here to teach you how to win and lose in life. It’s not the approach that most people take but I don’t like following the herd.
Have you noticed that a lot of people like travelling a lot? The more the better but most of them don’t get that it’s a form of escapism. I devoted a whole post to this matter but now there’s more. The bottom line is that it’ll do you more harm than good but people neglect this. They just keep on travelling just to escape their own lives. A lot of people have to escape reality since sometimes it can be pretty harsh. I mean how many times have you heard that people are going to travel to find the real them. They need a foreign country to get to know the real them. I get those people because most people are social media zombies.
Have you ever heard of passion? Off course you have since it’s used a lot by motivational speakers. I don’t have the intention to become a motivational speaker but I would never talk about it. I don’t even know what it is. You can’t eat it or be it. It’s just an empty emotion that makes sure that you do absolutely nothing. That’s what it is, nothing more and nothing less. Passion is the zero but obsession is the alpha. People who’re passionate aren’t getting anything done in a day. They do a lot but it’s all dead time. People who’re passionate seem to be afraid of acting on something that they really like. Can you guess how many bills get payed with passion? None!
So are you dead or alive? You might assume that you’re alive but in reality you’re dead . That’s shocking isn’t it? Don’t worry I’ll explain why you’re dead and still alive at the same time. Most people feel alive as soon as the weekend arrives. They go out and feel hungover the day after. That’s being dead in my eyes. Well going out can be fun but being hungover? Hell no, I’m never drinking again. So you might still be frustrated because you were really convinced that you were alive. There’s a slight chance that you are but I wouldn’t count on it.
