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.

It’s natural to have anxiety about the future, especially when things aren’t do that” switch those thoughts into “I am good enough” and “I can do anything.” The word “not” maybe the reason you haven’t taken action towards a better life.

Another reason why we may have fear about the future is because of what has happened in our past. We must do our best to not allow our past experiences to determine our present actions and choices. Learn from the past and move forward.

It’s not about forgetting what has happened in your past, it’s using your past as the fuel to move towards a better future. We all go through hard times but it’s how you grow from those experiences that will determine who you’ll become.

Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.

There are way too many opinions and too many voices in this world. However, have you ever considered that you don’t have to pay mind to everything?

Silence can be a gift, and you need wisdom to know when it is necessary. Sometimes, we have to let go of everything we hear and go on with our lives, not caring about what other people might think about us.

Ultimately, your opinion of yourself is the only thing that should be able to make or break your day, your mood, your drive, your image and your life. How you see yourself will determine your limit and how much you get out of life.

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 |

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.

The Daily Man-Up: Give Yourself The Gift Of “Enoughness”

October 9, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Advice |

“Not-Enough” isn’t your friend.

If you’re like me, then you’ve been plagued with the sense of “not enough” your whole live-long life.

It’s always been; not enough money, not attractive enough, home isn’t good enough, grades aren’t high enough, I’m not loved enough, not enough sex, not enough experiences, not enough travel, not enough likes, followers, upvotes.

Whenever we believe in not-enoughness then we’re operating on unstable ground. To feel like we haven’t done enough, or that we don’t have enough – is to feel a sense of insecurity, a sense of unwellness, and a need to arrive at the place of Enough.

The Daily Man-Up: You Get To Decide Who You Are

I’m not only saying “Just do it!”, instead I’m saying “just become it”.

I don’t buy junk food to bring home. I don’t do junk food. The idea of buying it repulses me, even though I’d get pleasure from eating it. Why? I thought about it, long and hard. About the kind of life I’d have if I continued to eat it, and I decided the person who eats junk food, that version of myself, that’s not me. That’s not who I want to be. I want to be healthy, and happy instead.
