Having taken the past 7 plus months off of this blog, I have redirected my focus towards working as a VIP host in Las Vegas and learning the ins and outs of nightlife. My path has been chosen, and so now I am doing everything in my power to understand every nuance of what it means to create venues of explosive energy. For the time being, I will stay out of discussing nightlife and instead would rather contemplate some things that have crossed my mind lately.
Taking it to The Next Level
- Foundational Drawing
- Mint Physical Shape
- Less Thinking, More Doing
- Inspirational Public Speaking
- Be The Man
- Harvesting Sustained Awareness
As a visual thinker, I need to start cementing my ideas onto paper. Without a vehicle to transmit my thoughts, it will be difficult to store such information definitely. By drawing out my ideas, I am converting those ephemeral thoughts to the next level just shy of actually putting them into context whether that could be designing interiors or drawing out the schematics for the exterior of a planned establishment. It is in my opinion that the ultimate feeling of satisfaction comes from creativity. To see an imagined passing thought become a reality.
Mint Physical Shape
A man who is not in top physical shape is a man who possesses a sense of subconscious inferiority and lack of discipline. How does a man expect to overcome great challenges without these two most necessary characteristics? Since 2012, my overall levels of strength and muscle have diminished to the point where I have recognized such a decline. Sure I might be focusing on other pursuits, but this should not detract my mission of becoming an all-encompassing man. Whatever I am doing, it should be performed at the highest maximum level and with the highest amount of pride. Most of all the greatest results are seen the moment after one proceeds to get over the bump of giving up.
Less thinking, more doing
There are several ways to learn on this great planet. One can read from great masters and try to condense their knowledge, or one can experience life while learning as he progresses. The matter is that experiential knowledge is far more concrete than without. However, reading from books is far more efficient with the use of time until one gets so caught up in learning that he fails to actually do what he has always intended to do. So what should I do? Just do it.
Inspirational Public Speaking
The greatest fear for the average man has to be public speaking. It is the separator from those who achieve the pinnacles of success to those who follow the predictable path towards ‘retirement’. Phonies are instantly recognized as their trepidations become evident in front of a public audience, and for those who are on a mission, their passion shines when they can demonstrate a grand vision to a larger scale audience. Most importantly, to be viewed as a leader, one must stick their neck out and become the spokesperson for their organization. Because of these reasons, I have purchased a webcam in order to prime my verbal thought processes for the sake of conducting fluid public discussions and speeches. It’s my intention to share my generative experiences and lessons in life so that people can improve their immediate surroundings. Positive energy is my goal.
Be the Man
Pain is good. Instead of building up around an objective, I will face it directly and build up through direct experience. To become the best, one must do exactly what he is trying to accomplish. Put no other thought into the preparation besides putting things into action. The preparation is the practice, and over time, everything will work out. As I have written in the past, without discipline there will be no development. Sacrifice is key here. If you want to push fucking forward, you will have to sacrifice short term pleasures for all time greatness. I truly believe this is what makes life so great.
Harvesting Sustained Awareness
Ah patience, the almighty struggle in life. Life is a race against the clock and if I am not living the fast life, I sink into disappointment. Equally as bad is distracted focus, for an unfocused man cannot compete with a man who possesses the detailed understanding of his subject. In a world where the commoditization of products and services dominates most industries, only the best survive and with that comes an expert level of attention to details. This attention or ‘in the zone’ effect can only be unlocked by letting go of all external thoughts and being completely in the moment with the desired object. Once in the zone, let the mind simulate probable events that would occur if this object can be changed in a specific way.
It has been a while…
It’s too bad that I have slacked off with this blog. I receive much enjoyment from writing out my thoughts with hope that just someone out there can get a second opinion. This blog has no monetary incentive and this is purely for my enjoyment to give back. In all honesty I feel guilty for what I have received, and it’s only right that I can return what has been given to me.
Life is too short to be pessimistic or hateful about a current situation. There are always solutions whether you believe it or not. Rid yourself of negative energy and see your results soar.
