Your mummy’s not gonna do it for you and the government sure as hell aint gonna do it for you.
So who’s gonna do it?
You’re gonna do it for you.
Now I hope it’s not just me and that I didn’t miss my electives for classes such as Happiness 101, How to be Successful 101 or Entrepreneurial Skills 101. But I don’t remember seeing any of these classes during high school or during my university business degree which is probably because….
THEY WERE NOT OFFERED.
Why were they not offered? I’m not sure why? Perhaps the government likes the population dumb and depressed enough so that we can continue to mindlessly spin the cogs in their money-making machines (Remember that business is a two-way street. You need a boss and then you need the individuals that help to make them rich). Or maybe it’s because we as a whole society have still not grasped onto the idea that perhaps some of the subjects I listed above would be more beneficial than other subjects that inform us of facts such as how many wars Napoleon won or how to multiply Pythagoras theorem by the square root of 200. Save that shit for extra curricular activity.
So who will teach you what you need to become a successful, happy, intelligent, critical thinking human being?….
This means time to buy a book, watch some YouTube or surf the web on how to increase your motivation, how to be happy or how to be successful.
Just think back to what you actually learnt in school and how useful it was? I think back and I view school as another way to fill my time with bullshit. Pure useless bullshit. If I wanted a lesson in common knowledge I would have bought Trivial Pursuit. Much cheaper and way more time efficient. The shit I learnt in school will not make me happy, successful or rich. Three things that are the key to living a long and happy life. Understanding happiness, how to be successful and how to have enough capital so that you can live safely and free of worry.
So next time you think about a TV reservation, maybe think about expanding your mind and improving your life with some self-education. Because no one else will give it to you.
This guy is an absolute legend.
Here are some great educational books if anyone is interested.
Thanks for reading
One step. Followed by another.
Sometime’s a leap of faith is all that is necessary for us to propel ourselves to greater realms.
Do you have fears?
(The answer is yes).
Everyone has fears.
However the difference between greatness and mediocrity is….
Do you fight your fears?…
If you don’t you should and if you do…that is good news for you. You have probably already achieved growth higher than others.
The only way for us to grow and conquer is to do the things that scare us.
The more we put the things off. The stronger we make our fear.
What is the problem with fear? Fear is there to protect me?
Well yes, fear is there to protect you. But is that how you would like to live your life? Feeling safe and protected?
If you do I suggest you get the fuck off my webpage and go check out eBay’s nice selection of Harry Potter books. This is not what Pink Mist is about.
Fighting fear makes you feel alive. For when you are not fighting fear… you are just another sheep remaining in the middle of the pack.
I don’t have time for fear in this world. My life is too damn short to be afraid.
I don’t know if many of you like rap/hip hop? I am a big fan.
Something that really stuck out to me a few months ago was a Facebook Post I read by the rapper Hopsin.
I dug through some archives and I found it for you to read.
I love it. It shows so much truth. Imagine being 80 years old and how pissed off you would be if you lived your life as a safe little pussy?
You would feel sick!
So next time you are afraid.
Visualise what the 80-year-old you would say.
I remember reading a quote that went along the lines of this. I apologise if I have not phrased correctly.
“In order to gain confidence you must first use courage. Courage is what it takes to get you over the line and then confidence emerges and remains in its place.”
P.s. get ready for podcasts. I’m scared to do this. But you don’t go up unless you push those mother fucken boundaries!
If you would like to watch the ‘Rocky story’, I posted it in this article. To this day that story is in my top 5 most influential tales I have ever heard. Truly inspiring.
“Do you go to Uni?”
“Yeh, do you?”
“Yeh, what do you study?”
“Business and Commerce in Property.”
“Oh yeh mad. Do you like it?”
(Here’s the part where I tell the other person “yes”)
“Yeh I do.”
The fact is, I really did study Business and Commerce in Property.
Another true fact is..
I did like it.
Another true fact is,
I didn’t love it.
So I quit. Yep, 2 years into my course. Half way through the semester. I just quit. Didn’t go to the exams. Didn’t even check the exam dates.
I just quit.
Do people think I’m stupid? Maybe? I’d say probably. I don’t really care.
Am I happy with my decision?
What I wanted to study and what I wanted to become educated in was not offered in my course.
Actually I don’t think it is offered in any course? Any course I have ever heard of anyway.
I wanted to study:
How to be happy.
How to unlock my full potential.
How to be successful.
How to live comfortably without fear.
And how to live without regret.
That’s what I do now. I broaden my horizons on these topics and work on building my website so I can help others and create myself financial freedom doing what I love.
No more API approved textbooks. Good bye Land Law.
Rural valuation, you can go fuck yourself.
Oh and statistics, fuck you too.
Getting up in the morning to brainwash myself with calculations and property education.
Fuck you too.
Now I educate myself in what I really love and enjoy.
I kind of figure it this way..
If you’re going to spend a lot of time on something…
Why not make it something you love?
I will tell you this and this is my guarantee.
When your work involves something you love. It does not feel like work.
And when work no longer feels like work….
You can concentrate for 10 times as long.
Find it easier to substitute ‘hanging out’ to work on what you love.
AND YOU CANNOT NOT LOSE.
Do what you love. I guarantee you will not lose.
Love is more powerful than any amount of concentration enhancing drugs, any amount of coffee or any amount of Red bull.
I guarantee that I would have made a lot of money in my career in property. But no way near as much as I am going to make now.
Love what you do and always do what you Love.
I also recommend watching the below video a friend of mine recommended and a video that inspired me to make this post.
So hurry up and make a change, before you’re old and full of regret.
You really shouldn’t.
Comfort breeds complacency
and complacency breeds…
Want to go up?
“That doesn’t sound appealing?”
“I don’t like change?”
“I’m happy with my current life style”
That’s fine.. enjoy your big bag of Cheetos and another game of Warcraft.
More money and success for me.
Being uncomfortable reminds us that we are alive.
When we are totally comfortable we are as good as dead. Running through our daily motions.. searching for instant pleasures.
Instant pleasures do not bring true happiness. Real happiness is created by hard work and achievements. Sacrificing for a better tomorrow.
But how do I become uncomfortable?
Easy! Put yourself out there and show some fucking nuts!
Why should I move out of my parents home? I’m 40 and it has everything I need?
Do you really want to die knowing you never left the nest? That you never really became your own man?
6 AM! Is it even daylight by then?
Please shut the fuck up before I throw a spanner at you.
I really like my job at Office Works. I’ve been here for the last 6 years.
Shut the fuck up. You’re a liar. I’m sure working at Office Works for the last six years was never your dream.
A physical example of someone who does not enjoy comfort is Arnold Schwarzenegger. The man truly despises comfort and look how far he has come. From an average home in Austria, to body building champion, to million dollar actor and finally to a career in politics. Love him or hate him, the man is incredible. Imagine having his resume? I recently purchased Arnold’s newest auto biography “Total Recall”. His book has given me true insight into the definition of determination and facing the uncomfortable.
My guru Eric Thomas says it best “You’ve got to give up… to GO UP”.
If you’re not willing to pay the price.. Don’t play the fucking game!
In life you should never feel satisfied. Life is a never-ending story. Meaning there is always room for improvement.
You want to be a professional swimmer?
You better jump in that pool.
You wanna knock people out like Tyson?
You better be prepared to get hit.
You wanna make more money than you’ve ever seen in your life?
Time to research, learn from the best and put your nuts on the line.
Feel some pain – Jordan
Very interesting video for anyone out there that is interested in throwing a punch that an opponent will find difficult to see/stop.
The message of this video is basically to flow the whole punch in one motion. Do not telegraph a punch by pushing off from your shoulders (whip lash effect). Instead move your body (legs,back,shoulders and arm) with the whole punch as one AKA everything happens in one big flow. Your opponent will not see your punch coming and will not be able to stop it.
Part 2 for anyone that is interested.
