The Daily Man-Up: Top 5 Lessons From A 10 Year Journey To Becoming Disciplined

No one becomes disciplined overnight. It’s a lifetime journey.

I think there’s way too much emphasis placed on “motivation” and “willpower.” Instead, I think it’s better to understand how human behavior works, and use it to your advantage.

Here are the five most important things I’ve learned about becoming more disciplined, and I hope it helps you.

Win the Morning, Win the Day

It’s a big challenge to have a productive day – That’s 24 hours. It can become overwhelming!

Instead, I only focus on two things.

This means I go to bed early, I avoid screens at night, I make the room colder, etc.

The Daily Man-Up: There Are No More Zero Days

Rule #1 – THERE ARE NO MORE ZERO DAYS

What’s a zero day? A zero day is when you don’t do a single fucking thing towards whatever dream or goal or want or whatever that you got going on. No more zeros. I’m not saying you gotta bust an essay out everyday, that’s not the point. The point I’m trying to make is that you have to make yourself, promise yourself, that the new SYSTEM you live in is a NON-ZERO system. Didnt’ do anything all fucking day and it’s 11:58 PM? Write one sentence. One pushup. Read one page of that chapter. One. Because one is non zero. You feel me? When you’re in the super vortex of being bummed your pattern of behaviour is keeping the vortex goin, that’s what you’re used to. Turning into productivity ultimate master of the universe doesn’t happen from the vortex. It happens from a massive string of CONSISTENT NON ZEROS. That’s rule number one. Do not forget.

The Daily Man-Up: Start Creating An Excellent Relationship With Yourself

October 18, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Self-Improvement |

If you’ll forgive me, I’m going to make a few assumptions about you:

– You know what you should be doing, and you’re not doing it.- If you DID do it, today and daily, you would create an entirely better life for yourself.- You experience a lot of conflict with yourself.- You know you should be kinder to yourself, but you’re not.- You feel insecure, you feel that you’re not where you should be in life.- This makes you feel guilt, shame, and regret.

Is this you? Please don’t worry; it’s all of us.

The Daily Man-Up: Why Fear Should Be Your Compass in Life, Not a Deterrent

October 17, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up |

Our deepest, darkest, most numbing fears aren’t spiders, rats, or snakes.

While they may frighten us, our fear of spiders and such, probably won’t lead us to live a small, insignificant life. Fear of failure will.

We fear insignificance, and never truly experiencing the vast adventures that life can potentially offer us if we have the courage that they require of us. We fear that we’re headed on a road that will leave us alone in our beds, with regret as our only companion as we face whatever comes next.

Although fear can make us live small lives spent worrying about trivial things as great adventures pass us by, it can also be the solution to the problem, and the riddle that life throws at us daily: Why are we here?

The Daily Man-Up: If You Want To Make Progress, You Need To Stop Avoiding The Unpleasant Moments

October 15, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Advice |

Somewhere along the line, we seem to have gained this idea that we need to enjoy every single second of our lives—that for some reason, we are no longer okay with putting in a few minutes of effort to get something great out of it. We’ve stopped putting work into anything that we don’t enjoy at that moment.

Get rid of that mindset. It’s holding you back more than pretty much anything else in your life. Getting things done is going to mean putting in effort. I know you don’t want to, and I do not care. The world does not care. The world isn’t going to coddle your ass because you just want to sit there on the internet.

The Daily Man-Up: Mindset and Mental Focus

October 10, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Advice |

(photo: @joshuaearle)

Everybody wants more for their lives, but they’re unwilling to put forth the effort necessary to gain more.

The cause for this is primarily two things, that if you address, will drastically improve the quality of your life, the people within it, and the things you’re able to enjoy within your life.

Mindset and Mental Focus.

Mindset is important, because fundamentally, what you believe of yourself, and what you’re capable of, is exactly what you’ll gain and achieve in life. Now, this fact is hard for some people to accept and believe, because they believe that they already think about changing their lives enough to warrant different circumstances in their lives.
