We are in a war.
A war against good, against real, against individuality, against honor, respect, loyalty, against putting off the now for the greater victory later. Against any and all of the morality we hold dear.
It’s battleground is the TV, the internet, movies, society and the minds of men and woman across our land.
The chips and odds ARE stacked against you. The deck is tainted, the dice are weighted, the whole system is set up to make YOU fail.
It is set up to make you be part of them. Part of the sheep, part of the masses. But you are smarter than that. You are a rebel. A Monarch.
One tough SOB. But don’t think for a second that this society likes our kind. It does not. Only our kind likes our kind.
Successful people are built different than the masses of the mediocre.
Understand this about life, to be super successful you need to live in a bubble.
You must put yourself in a box, shelter and insulate yourself from others opinions, judgements, feelings and what people think.
You will always have critics.
You will always have haters.
You will always have people who judge you, cry about you, bitch moan and stamp their feet like little babies when they don’t get their way.
That’s their problem not yours.
You WILL meet many great people along the way some awesome friends and some real real people who will love you and be by your side no matter what.
You will also meet a whole bunch of fakes, phonies, shit talkers, liars, thieves, men who are run by fear, women who are scandalous, cheaters, monsters, evil and twisted.
People who listen to snakes, who listen to demons, who listen to that small voice. They may even be a ring leader of the small voice. Do not follow. Tread carefully.
For all the good their is in the world there is 2 times bad. Unfortunately.
But you remain smug in the face of it all knowing you are holding the torch for the truth and the light. Too bad for them if they can dish it but can’t take it.
You will also have people who want to be like you.
Wish they could be like you and because of that they will either try to befriend you, or sabotage you.
You need to have the balls (male or female) to know unshakably that you are right.
You need to possess iron clad will, and a healthy dillusion that you can succeed where many others have failed in the past.
You need to give up the notion and caring and SEEKING others approval.
Only THEN can you be truly happy and only then can you truly reach the pinnacle of your ability.
Worry and over thinking is the elixir of cortisol dump.
Believe me I know all too well, at some point in my life (not sure when it happened) I worried about everything.
What others thought, would I offend someone, would being me tick people off, would I embarrass others around me, embarrass myself? This ideal is sick and twisted and it comes from trying to live someone else’s normal.
Trying to live to others standards, ideals, norms, or status is just sickening poison for your soul.
Recently a good buddy of mine gave me a good verbal beat down. He said you need to just not care what others think about you and what you do.
Understand that not giving a shit about what others think does not make you weak, it makes you powerful.
There is an amazing book Thick Face Black Heart, my Jiu Jitsu coach and friend gave me to read. He also said not to make it too public, but I think if you are reading this blog you have crossed over the threshold of normalcy and come to the place where you just stopped caring about others opinion because you are TOO busy just destroying the day and making strides to be a better person, business man, and help as many others reach their goals as possible.
We need you. It is a war. Do not think for a second it is not.
This is a war and the battles and skirmishes are first fought on the mental front.
Don’t get me wrong not caring what others do and say isn’t about being a pacifist. It isn’t about not standing up for yourself. It is about not caring enough to give others power over your world.
When you care what others thinks or you take their judgements and actions to heart you give it power, you ALLOW (yes you allow only YOU can allow anyone to effect you) their world to effect yours. This is draining. You will never please everyone. Don’t try.
Please yourself, please your family loved ones and friends and your dog or cat and maybe a fish or 2 and that IS IT!
Don’t give away your power. Now I am not saying do not defend yourself if someone is trying to harm you, or provoke you. In those cases I think the exact opposite, strike first, strike fast, strike hard, and strike ferociously over and over until the threat has been removed.
In those scenarios I leave this quote:
Most of us were taught that when someone slaps you, you should turn the other cheek. This is not always the best course of action. There is a time to submit to being slapped and there is a time to hit back twice so you will not be slapped again.
Hopefully you liked this blog, if so leave a comment, share it, like it, and spread the word. We need more people like you the good in this world is heavily outnumbered.
