It turns out that no matter what experience you have, if you ask the question “can I still make it?” People will ALWAYS find a way to tell you “No son, you can’t make it” or “too late, you missed the deadline” or some other way of keeping you grounded with where THEY are at. You cannot, under any circumstance, listen to the “No”-sayers.
I just love being up before sunrise. When I finish my conditioning workout at 6AM and the sky is barely light – all black – I’m ecstatic. I can’t seem to get the drive to go back to waking up late, like 7AM late. I am super grateful to get to this point, because it wasn’t easy.
How ironic is it that when I don’t have a job I dread, I get up early and I end up doing whatever I want? When I do what I want to do I have power. It’s exciting to have power. It’s difficult to be asleep when I’m excited. Simple logic.
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.
Sometimes, there will be no more in your way, only your action to take. A space appears because of your wake. Everyone’s had an idea that was without doubt evolutionary and would make a life-changing tailspin a sure-win, but most never execute it to the finish. It’s uncomfortable to perform decisions on a whim, to act on that idea that might fail…and most live for comfort. That gives us a HUGE advantage.
Hedonism – sensual self-indulgence – is a way of life. Who wouldn’t want to live like a king being fed grapes like the robot in Futurama? Hedonism is great in the moment, and all we have is the moment – the logic is clear. Still, unconventional living – the theme of this blog – demands we live under no boundaries. It’s pretty hard to set boundaries on feeling good. Hedonism takes it to the extreme, so it’s not a great long-term strategy.
