I have a really good Winter poem, for you guys.
I have a really good Winter poem, for you guys.
March madness is starting soon right? I'm so pumped! That Michael Phelps is a real winner in my book.
Dude I don't know if you saw the movie Lone Survivor yet but I just watched the beginning and thought of you.
In the beginning of the movie they showed Navy Seals training at Seal School and what one of the drill instructors said really stuck out to me.
"Find an any excuse to win!"
The drill instructor was yelling this at one of the Privates that was having a hard time getting up to run again. A light bulb went off in my head.
When you can't get back up, your tired, afraid, hurting, cold, or whatever; it doesn't mater what thought process you have. The only thing that's important is that your moving again! That's all.
At the end are you going to think, "gosh I wish I didn't think about that to get myself moving again" NO! Your going to be filled up with self gratification that you made it!
So, think up anything that will get you moving again no mater what it is.
Such good advise. Think of any excuse to get moving again and again.
The mental toughness of a Navy Seal is beyond good or just OK. It's a warrior's mentality never to give up. How can we learn from the Navy Seals?
In everyday life we might not have go through what the Seals go through but we still can take away a lesson in inner drive and metal toughness. We are faced with more of a emotional battle then a physical one everyday. How we overcome our emotions can greatly impacted our lives.
Just think how far we can get in our own lives if we never gave up. Also if we had the metal toughness to think up any excuse to get our bodies and minds moving again. We should move towards our goals and never give up.
We tend to think about why we shouldn't do something and we can think up any excuse not to do something. We get stuck > excuse after excuse > why not the other way around?
How do you find your inner drive?
I don't care if your trying to get your dream job, start a business, or your just trying to start working out; everyone needs a inner drive. Having the drive to say, "yes I will do it" more times then saying, "nope not today." But how?
We think about to much.
We aim high and don't commit.
We try to impress others and not ourselves.
Let's take running for a example.
We think about it to much. How many times have you wanted to go for a run and all you could think about is, "it's too cold." Say I. I'm assuming most of you said I, me also. It's cold, my muscles will be sore, I will probably only run a block and drop to the ground. This is called a thinking trap.
How to uncover the positive lining in your thinking trap is simple. When you start going into these thinking traps ask yourself "what's running going to do for me?" You may think, "well, first off it's going to get me into shape and more importantly it will make me feel better over all. It will also give me energy for the rest of my day."
[Let's be honest] maybe not in the beginning but in a month from now I will be glade I stuck with it.
You have to focus on what running is going to do for you in a month from now or a week from now or a day from now, NOT what it's going feel like during. The more you think about it the more you don't want to do it. [So true]
Here's another thinking trap.
We aim super high in our goals and we hardly ever set small goals to accomplish. Your dream might be, "one day I want to run a marathon." That's a great goal to have! But what's your goal this week? Do you have any? If not you're probable in a thinking trap. Why? Because all you can think about is how you can't run a full marathon right now so why bother running today? Make it easy for yourself. Why not set a small goal like, "I will run 3 times this week." Not only is that very doable but it makes your mind take it a piece at a time.
[When people are in a eating contest they tend to cut up their food in small portions. It tricks their brain to take things slow and focus on one thing at a time.]
We need to feel like we're making some sort of progress. So don't think your aim is stupid because it's small.
Inner drive should be a drive to help ourselves accomplish one goal at a time. You should NOT have the end goal be to impress people. We tend to want to lose weight to impress people but it's a false sense of accomplishment. It's shallow and wont lead you to go anywhere near your goals.
Your inner drive grows as you train your brain to think positive and make simple changes in your life. It's accomplishing those small goals to get to the bigger ones. Remember you have to live with you at the end of the day. I don't care if I am your friend or your roommate at the end of the day, you live with you.
The old 'how tos' is old news. Everyone and their mother is giving out >> 'free how to' information online. You can learn anything and I mean anything just by typing it into YouTube.
So, what could you do that we haven't seen before? You want to share what you love, you want to give your 2 cents into the mix, and you start to realize how small you really are. Sorry but your done before you started.
The answer is simple. What can YOU give that no one else can give is >> YOU! <<
The answer is YOU NOT me but YOU!
If you live an extraordinary life, full of gun shot wounds, drugs, sex, money, and stolen gold...Your the next hit online!
Don't you get it?
Sure, go ahead share what you know. No one cares anymore. What people want to see is people living amazing lives.
We love hearing about people's crazy adventures and their weird crazy messed up stories. The 'wow' life. Like when you think, "wow! I can't believe he would do that!" Or like, "Holy shit how was he able to do that!"
Stories are now king online. The better story you have the better off you are.
If your not living on the edge, or high flying with Neil Diamond >> forget about it!
Ok, I'm over shooting by a little.
But, people want to see other people become successful, live crazy amazing lives, and live to talk about it type of thing. A real life story that encourages you to think about your own life, that type of story!
So? Start living it up and live to tell about it!
Not sure where to start? What's the craziest thing you have ever done? Would you be willing to do it again for the camera?
...Say cheese, it's your life online for everyone to see, crazy? Yep!
The answer is always and will forever be YOU no matter what! Go out there and live an amazing extraordinary life that encourages people to do the impossible in their own lives! Ok now your 2 cents will be worth a hell of a lot more.
It's the monkey see monkey do mentality. People want to see another monkey throwing their poop so they can start throwing their own poop!
I'v been shoot at, moved to a different country, fell in love, gotten beat up more times then I can count, wrestled a pack of wolfs, been able to fly, watched my friend die, saved millions of lives, become famous, learned piano, witnessed a bubble rainbow, got recruited by the CIA, become the top spy, stopped a nuclear war, got a high level of radiation in my blood, transformed into a super hero, started my own company, and made billions.
That was yesterday...
...I wonder what I'll think about today?
There is a need for more listeners in this world then talkers.
It doesn't take any effort to talk about something but as soon as you have to listen it's the hardest thing in the world for some people.
The path to lighting up this world doesn't start with you typing something into a comment box, it starts with you listening to what people are saying.
Some of the most successful people in the world are the best listeners. They listened to what people were saying and filled the need by starting businesses like GoPro and 10 Minute Trainer.
The owner of GoPro just wanted to create a water proof camera for surfers because he saw the need. Then what he found was people wanted to share what was happening 'in the moment' to their friends. He saw that, he heard that, he listened to people and so instead of making a camera just for surfers he created a camera for everyone so everyone could be a hero!
...think about when GoPro come out. YouTube started to to become a huge hit. Millions of people video taping their lives and putting on the web. There was a need for a portable camera that could go anywhere! I'm mean anywhere! GoPro filled that need.
Same with 10 Minute Trainer.
[You]...I don't have time for working out! I have a family and work and blah blah blah! I'm fat...Blah blah blah!
[10 Minute Trainer Guy]...do you have ten minutes in your day?
[10 Minute Trainer Guy]...everyone has 10 minutes! Here is a work out program for you that only takes 10 minutes a day!
[You]...what the fuck? Sign me up!
and that's how 10 Minute Trainer was born...
So, I encourage you to listen once in a while. You will be surprised in what you might hear!
Like I said, anyone can talk but I think it takes a special type of person to listen and I mean really listen to peop
I was sitting, watching 'Lonely Island' on YouTube and then I thought -> Who the fuck are these guys?
I did a little digging and this is what I found.
First, you know about Andy Samberg so who cares about him.
Second, we have a guy named Jorma Taccone and I checked out his rap sheet it's nothing to brag about. But he still holds some marinates. Mostly known for his own stuff that he produced on SNL.
Third, we have Akiva Schaffer and once again he made a short film here, there, but nothing to brag about. But wait...
...he is the director of the movie that you might know, 'The Watch.' Hey, it's something!
All in all, I like these guys. Good universal humor and a good eye for film making.
...not sure if you say the movie, 'The Watch' but I thought it was pretty funny. But gosh dam did it get bad reviews! I was surprised to find out that the movie lost money.
Crazy all the things and connects you can find with a little dirty work AKA Google and typing...
