How Do You Unplug From “The Matrix”?

It’s a Saturday, time to unplug and I need to blog.hqdefault

Well, it was a Saturday when I wrote the 1st draft.

I hope I eventually did through one up before this one.

I didn’t.

Shoot, I’m not sure.

I’ve been busy brooding over being abandoned that I haven’t been noticing much of life.

And what’s important.

Like you, reading this blog. You are important to me.

“We do not exist for ourselves …” – Thomas Merton

Not too sure what that quote means exactly but my guess is that you find your purpose when you look outside of yourself.

The meaning of life or whatever.

I think a lot, I like really overthink stuff and I end up too focused on myself and end up listening to my negative self-talk over and over again like a broken record.

fb_img_14757036410192509622996734996495.jpgSo my game-plan to counter that was to shift my thinking to a positive mindset, so that I can at least see the glass as half full.

Joking around with my mates about how hard life is didn’t help with improving much either.

Life is only as hard as we make it…

Lol!

Which is so much bullshit, because life is just plain hard.

It’s just a matter of finding a way around it, or a work around so that you don’t find yourself being beat all the time.

“When life knocks you down, land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. – Les Brown”

My self-medication, well my constructive one anyways, includes blogging about stuff I really want to believe.

Shit that doesn’t have me wanting to drown my sorrows all the time as an antidepressant or craving for sex so I can jump start my dopamine fix.

Finding a corner to curl up in the fetal position so I can cry my worries away has not done much to improve my life either.

I think I’m just angry and I’m projecting instead of seeking counselling.

Sense 8 was right when they said violence has a gender.

Even if in my case it’s internalized.

Musa the masochist.

Double M.

The pain is pleasure, pleasure is pain cycle I trap myself in.

A cycle I call my life.

A cycle I manage to break free from by writing blogs like these.

For you.

Because you save my life, you see…

…and I love you for that.

Because I’m an emotional Cancerian that likes to hoard nice things.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

You Fear the Sabre-tooth

6753809I read somewhere that the brain is wired since the stone age to think negatively so to protect us from the dangers that existed then.

Sabre-tooth as an example.

These days this negative thinking works overtime, stopping us from getting ahead in life.

Because we fear trying something new.

Fear of the Sabre-tooth.

This happens without us even realizing.

Without reading, preferably instructional books, then nothing will contradict that thinking.

You could even try swapping listening to the car radio station or your phone playlist for an audiobook.

The hours you spent while traveling, could be spent sharpening your mind against the Sabre-tooth.

Marvel_avengers_alliance_sabretooth_by_ratatrampa87-d6tj8tgThe benefits of investing in yourself will eventually be seen via your outlook in your life.

Maybe that’s what you need.

Maybe that’s what need.

A different outlook.

That comes from developing a habit of reading or listening daily to go sh*t.

A Business Like No Other…

new-mlm-companiesI think network marketing levels the playing field.

I could be wrong, it’s just my observation.

From my limited observation, businesses are handed over from generation to generation.

The only legacy I’ve seen being left the masses is poverty.

Some families are brought up with the option of aspiring to be business owner, while other families are sold the idea of becoming employees or self employed.

Asking the government to fix this in the form of land distribution, for instance, is as effective as the removal of our now current President from office.

But network marketing nullifies this dependent mindset.

The right one also offers you training and mentorship on how to succeed by also developing a business owner mindset.

But the best ones allow for your network marketing business to be passed on from generation to generation, just like these families I spoke of earlier.

With the right training to develop your skills, I believe anyone can succeed in what they put their minds to.

Multi level marketing included.

One of the hiccups I have with conventional business is the start up capital, amongst other uncertainties.

But obviously if you are committed enough and want it badly enough then you can find solutions around that.

I guess one chooses ones battles.

With me preferring minimum start up capital.

Minimal operational costs.

No overhead.picture2

With some part time but consistent work ethic, the results are predictable.

Results that can supplement my current salary.

Results that can be on par with my current salary.

Results that can eclipse my current salary.

A business like no other.

Look as a disclaimer, anything legit that allows you to make extra income is great.

Be it MLMs or another job or part time gig or strip joints.

I’m just talking about what I’m exposed to.

Do you due dilengece.

This working you way up to your salary month end only to start at zero the following month, is insane.

But most of us are doing it so it’s ok right?

I don’t think so.

What’s In It For You?

I’ve been telemarketing for the past 9 months.

Wow.

Was shocked to even realized how long I’ve been here.

Guess time passes you by when you get “caught up” in waking up at 4:30am only to get home at around 8:30pm.

Sales driven environment, I’ve seemed to have lost the plot.

Especially when it comes to my self development education.

Applied knowledge is power.

And I’ve just been going through the emotion of late.

Just grateful to have this blog.

Writing centers me.

My true passion…

But why sales then?

Because it’s outside my comfort zone.

Or at least it was.

For an emotional guy like myself, I feel there’s no better way to manage my emotions than doing sales.

People don’t like to be sold to really.

But if you get the hang of the WIIFM paradigm then you should be good.

W – what’s

I – in

I – it

F – for

M – me

Come I get back to it then.

Lunch break almost over.

I love you.

Thank you.

The More Prepared You Are the More Attractive You Look to the Things You Want to Achieve

How prepared are you for success?

Have you made space for your new car?

Have you bought the champagne to celebrate the achievement you are attracting?

Sometimes you need to act first only to have your goals to catch up with you later.

As in you would be allowing in your goals at a faster rate if you start right now paving the way for their arrival.

You need to be attractive to your goals by being an attractive person.

At a vibrational (emotional) sense of the word…but then again looking good never hurt nobody.

For example:

You out of a job?

Shine your shoes.

Press your clothes.

And set the alarm for you to get up the following morning.

But don’t you dare get it twisted.

Sitting on your hands doing nothing and expecting the world to come knocking on your door is a fool’s dream.

You & I live in a world of cause and effect.

You need to take new actions for you to get new results.

So update your resumé.

Look out for and apply to places that are of interest to you.

Send your resumé out to prospective companies.

You need to GO OUT and attend the interviews.

Take massive action.

Now you look VERY attractive to your job seeking goals.

A principle that you can use in any other goal you had in mind.

So be excited about being in new situations with new people and new environments as you find pleasure and positive aspects with going outside your comfort zone.

Success lies at the end of your comfort zone.

Thank you.

I love you.

“When You Fall, Make Sure You Fall On Your Back. Because If You Can Look Up You Can Get Up!”

Image

“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”

I think everyone goes through struggle at one point or another.

Most people go out every day with a lot of baggage weighing them down.

Resting and pressing against their chest.

With how the world is structured it seems almost normal to see only negative things all around you.

But what you must realize is this is just one reality.

It is important for you to get a breather and to explore other possible realities.

“What you focus on grows bigger.”

This is one of the reasons why I write on this blog here:

To suggest other possible realities.

Because at the end of the day YOU have the power to control what you are exposed to on a daily basis.

You might even have in your head is this idea of how you will experience more pain if you made changes in your environment than if you left things as they are.

But ultimately you hold the power.

So see this update as a reminder of this truth.

It does not matter what other people say.

Their truth can never be YOUR truth.

In the words of Les Brown:

“Never let someone else’s opinion of you be your reality.” 

I love you.

Thank you.

PS: On the subject of experiencing different realities I’ve always suggested you focus on the “what” and the “how” will show itself.

Here is an expert teacher who can show you the “how.”
