stop living in the past

We have all met one person who had all the ingredients to lead a successful life: wealth, great background, stable family and quality education, but yet they ended up as bitter, unsuccessful persons. We have also heard of those that came from humble or bad backgrounds and yet rose to greatness even if they had all the variables working against them. How is it possible that the latter was able to lead successful lives and become wealthy or at least successful in their trade even if they had everything working against them?

When you stop blaming other people for your problems….when you stop procrastinating, bitching and complaining about how unfair life is…it is truly amazing what the fuck you can accomplish with your life!

Once you realize no one is coming to save you, you only have two options- you can say “fuck it” and lay there and do nothing OR you can sack it the fuck up and become the badass motherfucker you were meant to be!

The Daily Man-Up: Mediocrity is a Virus

November 25, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up, Life Advice |

Little things become big things.

When you justify and allow even little things into your life which your intuition warns you against, you permit a virus to enter your life. It spreads to other areas.

When you introduce a change to any system, you simultaneously change the whole system. The other areas of the system will begin arranging themselves to better fit with the new.

Going against your higher intuitive voice is a slippery-slope. You don’t realize day to day how out of whack things are really getting.

Any small problem or indulgence cannot be viewed in isolation. It reflects something much bigger and much deeper. Sometimes it takes an intense wake-up call to become aware of the signals.

The Daily Man-Up: 5 Mistakes People Make In Their 20s That Guarantee They Will Have A Hard Life

Most people will say things like…

And the list goes on.

But the simple truth is that none of these things necessarily “guarantee” they will have a hard life.

I partied hard, did more drugs than I should have, ran from the police, spent a few years “lazing” around and dated (although luckily didn’t marry) the wrong person…several times.

Those things can lead to an unnecessarily hard life, but they don’t have to.

However, there are a few mistakes that, if made in your 20’s will set you up for an unnecessarily hard life in the future.

The Daily Man-Up: You’ll Only Develop Self Discipline If You Have A Strong Enough Why

November 21, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up, Life Advice |

If you want to have self discipline to do the things you know you need to do, then you need to know your “why”.

Your “why” is what drives you and stops you from getting lazy and giving in to temptation. For example, if you weigh 500lbs and you want to lose all that extra weight, you will be presented with temptations to over eat, eat unhealthy foods, etc. In those moments of temptation where you want to binge on 3 big Macs and 2 Oreo mcflurries, the only thing that can get you to resist the desire to over eat is to have your “why” deeply ingrained in your mind. Your why in this situation is your ideal body. What feelings does having that ideal body evoke inside you? You need to keep that visual of your ideal body at the forefront of your mind. When you’re tempted by the food, visualize the body you desire. If that vision of your future self in an ideal body evokes stronger emotions than eating the unhealthy food, then you will succeed. You should feel emotions of excitement everytime you think about your future body if you are to be successful. If you don’t feel those emotions then you will give into the food because that is what excites you more.

The Daily Man-Up: Why Having the Right Friends is Extremely Important

November 19, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Advice |

surround yourself with good friends

(photo: @wildlittlethingsphoto)

When I was 10, I discovered The Three Musketeers: a swashbuckling tale about four inseparable friends living by the motto “all for one, one for all.” The book became an instant favorite – but not because of the wine, women, song or adventure.

What I actually enjoyed most was the camaraderie between the main characters. My family had just moved and I was really lonely; the idea of having loyal friends inspired me. I read the book and fantasized about having people to share my own adventures with.

As an adult, I can look back and say my wish came true. Throughout the years, I’ve been surrounded by some amazing people. Thanks to them, I understand why having the right friends is extremely important – especially in a culture where others always come second.

The Daily Man-Up: This Generation Loves To Take The Easy Way Out

November 14, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up, Life Advice |

When I look at life, I look at it as a workout at the gym. It’s like being in the last quarter of your training, the point where you have to give it your all to get through it. This is when the reps get harder and harder and your mind starts telling you that you might be tired.

Now there are two types of people in this world: those who will take the easy way out, listen to their weak mind and not finish their reps or their workout because they feel “tired”; and those people that will simply say f*ck it, give it their all, push harder, get past the wall in front of them and finish strong because that is what they set out to do.

Unfortunately there’s only a small percentage of people who fall into the latter category: maybe 5 to 10%. The rest of the people will simply walk away, satisfied that they feel tired because they feel like they’ve done enough. They are appeased.

Cultivate your edge.

Step in your native, original bad-assery. Sit in the center-most point of you, now.

Do you remember being 8 or 10 or 12 years old and not giving a fig about anybody or anything? Remember knowing that you’re the shit, that the world truly is your inheritance and belongs to you? Remember that freedom that comes from knowing that you can do anything or go anywhere? Let’s boot that program up now.

I’ll explain what I mean by ‘cultivate you edge’.

I’ll start with cultivate.
