Remember Doomsday 2012, and how people actually bought attics and months of farmland supplies to prepare for it? It never ended up happening, and some probably went into serious debt because they thought the banks wouldn’t exist anymore. They were certainly prepared, and how they prepared for it makes sense 100 percent.
Make it impossible for you to fail.
We know that exes are bad. In some way, shape, or form, they’re bad otherwise we would still be with them.
Yet there’s something that keeps us coming back to them…like a crack addict finding any way to get money for a hit. Addicts, though, have a possibility of escaping their obsession.
Read below before watching the video. You’ll get better ideas of what I’m talking about, then you’ll put the ideas together when you see it in action.
Soccer’s all about decision making. You can make the right moves, you can make waiting moves, or you can make the wrong moves.
The right moves include creating chances, taking open shots, and capitalizing on offense. Waiting moves include passing the ball around, because you’re waiting(italics) for a hole to open up for a right move. But make the wrong moves – like mindlessly giving away possession or getting beat on defense – and you most certainly will get scored on.
Make the opponent believe they’re making the right moves when they’re really making the wrong ones, and the game’s basically yours.
Being balanced is like having a fucking superpower. I can move effortlessly in one direction. I’ll be walking forward, then all I have to do is lean slightly and gravity does the work. It’s awesome.
Starting to move from a dead stop is the most amazing feature of being balanced. When you begin to move, it’s like your body’s able to lean forward and have the same feeling as standing straight up.
Think about a buoy (the floater separating boats from people at the beach). Buoys can be toppled hard by waves but you’ll never see one upside down. I could be on one foot with a bent leg and I’ll still be able to dribble the ball normally.
Now balance and agility are different. Agility is the ability to CHANGE direction; balance is just being able to stay upright in difficult positions. Being able to quickly switch from leaning forward to leaning backward is being agile. Again, you can be fast but if you’re not agile, you’re like a limo; it’s hard to turn.
Balance can be supportive to a fast person. If you’re running like Usain Bolt but you’re not balanced then all someone has to do is push you while you’re running and you’ll fall! Great for track and field, absolutely awful for soccer. People will push you often.
And lastly, balance your life and you’ll find yourself under much less stress. You can be able to switch between tasks pretty fast. You can even be able to complete those tasks fast. But if a task just happens to turn up some unforeseen consequences, you’ll be able to handle it that much better.
- Standing on one leg, 3 sets of 30 seconds
- Standing on the flat side of a Bosu ball, 3 sets of 30 seconds
- Standing on the ball side of a Bosu ball, and making figure-eights with a medicine ball. Three sets of five figure-eights.
The first two exercises might be too easy. That’s why you’ll do it with your eyes closed. You only need to pick one, but I recommend two to really feel the results – they’re instant!
When you finish those exercises or step off that Bosu ball, you’ll feel like a king. The way you will walk will be significantly different, a lot more centered and relaxed, and as if nothing can bring you down. These exercises will physically and mentally empower you and keep you coming back for more. I make sure to pick two, four times a week.
A ghost is something dead that appears to be alive. Many people praise the idea that selfishness is wrong. Yeah, I get it – not sharing your crayons that you’re clearly not using can be a bit unfair. However, when you ignore others because you are working on yourself, some shamelessly call it selfish.
The decision to help millions of people instead of solely one person is clear. Unless that one person is undertaking a task that can prevent the apocalypse, I’m going to go with helping millions. I’m going to continue recording visionary ways of playing the game I love so many people around the world can see it. I see no long-term value in helping out this girl (and I go over that further down in this post):
