- I’m a person with a huge vision and large appetite. I cannot afford to be small and end up turning into nothing. I will use all the available resources (of course responsibly and reasonably) to grow fast.
Changing course often hardly takes you anywhere. But what when your personality is all about getting bored easily when you are taped to one project for while..and always wanting to try new things? When everybody around you makes statements like “you won’t take any thing seriously and keep jumping projects..what’s wrong with you!” …you might even start feeling strongly that it is a problem.
It’s not a problem of course, that’s what you are! It’s your personality. Living your life otherwise causes you deep dissatisfaction and emptiness.
All you need is a cushion to feel comfortable and do the jumping. By cushion I mean a cash cow that makes money every month to cover your lavish lifestyle expenses and more. When you jump after the other you won’t bleed money and save an heart attack for people who are involved.
Set a course…hold on to it until you can start milking it and make it your cash cow. Now is your time to feed your personality! Try new things and instead of jumping from one to another figure out a way how you can keep them active and functional and still jump to a new project for whatever reason.
After a while you turn back you will find a bunch of functional businesses.. some might be dying, but it is not going to hurt you. Overall you might be at a profit or you have even found one or more gold mines. This is how you can use your personality as your leverage to scale your business.
That’s exactly what I intend to do from now on.
Technology is generously helping lazy people to become more and more useless. So when things go wrong they perish easily. Separating wheat from chaff!
People are such complex beings..make unnecessary dramas and magnify things that’s not even a problem. But they comfortably ignore shit storms that’s going to hit them any time. And that’s what helped our race to survive and thrive. Surviving and thriving as a better person is definitely different.
But I don’t think we should simply blame people for that anyway! When people give justifications to their actions to be compatible with societies views on what’s just and unjust…it almost always tends to be manipulated and fake.
We can’t blame the society as well. That’s the best we built for ourselves to thrive as a society. Evolved since long..tested and optimized.
To be unique we should break out of this system and build something solid to seperate us from the average crowd. Separating ourselves from the rest to be with 5% crowd without blaming anyone.
This guy got some seeds, happily goes to his garden to plant them all! Wakes up next day so excited to check if there is a plant or maybe even flowers!
Becomes very disappointed and discouraged to see no sign of anything at all….restlessly pluck the seed out to see what’s happened. So he plants it back again, comes back next day with a discouraged excitement to see nothing again. Angry man takes the seed out throws it away concluding it was such a waste of time.
If this man sounds obviously absurd to you…most of us already posses that quality and how is that it doesn’t strike you as weird?
Quick conclusions and judgements have made people evolve with mediocre relationships. Don’t you agree?
And the most annoying thing of all is when such a person says something like…”from my 30 years of experience”….rest of it is absolute bullshit.
When you realize you can handle any given topic or situation you start feeling relaxed and let people talk before voicing your opinion. People who don’t listen and forces their opinion onto others are the ones insecure about their own content.
Have you seen people killing a cockroach?
Ignorance is such a powerful tool that we all tend to use at some point in our lives or may be everyday!?
When you know those fruits and veggies you eat everyday are kind of poisoned with preservatives.. chemicals are used to make them grow bigger or ripe fast…what steps do you really take? Yes you are aware what’s harming your health..but what do you really do about it? Ignore as if it’s no big deal..meh!
Though I make sure to get them from the best places…and wash off any possible chemicals on them. But I still choose to ignore the fact that it isn’t very effective. These things are not in my control so I choose to ignore it rather than ruining my peace thinking about it.
Think about the list of things you choose to ignore! We human beings are more focused on present situation than worrying about future, at least we say we do but we clearly don’t. We have so much crap to worry about for the next hour or day, so how can you effectively think and act about the future..fair argument.
I have seen people do horrible things and they choose to ignore and soon forget it altogether. The worst part is they behave like nothing ever happened. They don’t want to lose their sleep feeling guilty about what they did… So they kind of build this defense mechanism which makes them behave like everything’s fine and they did nothing wrong.
I find this scenario fascinatingly disturbing. We all do it but some take things to unbelievable extent.
Global warming is happening…economy is falling apart…
On the brighter side things are progressing. A small percentage among us are becoming aliens to rest of us with the kind of technology they are building. Power is shifting towards the geeks.
We are waiting for catastrophic incidents and social chaos.
What possibly could happen!?
A lot of people will die. People in the lower most layer of social status will be the ones that gets hit hard.
People in the top layers ignore and behave like things are normal. World will be occupied by the ones with sound knowledge or wealth.
Ignorance is not bad all the time. It will help you thrive in some scenarios.
When someone says something and you feel incredibly sensitive is because you have wound within (mostly insecurities) and you feel the pain when people reach it.. so how do you conclude this? Is it their fault or yours?
Scenario: When you are insecure about something, you come up with justifying conclusions and choose to believe it’s all gone and good.. But in real it’s just a cover-up. Whenever someone proves you wrong and make you realize it’s still in there… They are instantly activating your defense system.
As long as you don’t heal it… You are exposing yourself to pain that doesn’t even make sense most of the time.
Don’t focus on staying away from people that play with your wounds. Put yourself around them often to test where you stand. These people are not threats… They are your solution…they make you become stronger.
Just having this one quality called “learning from your mistakes” makes you more comfortable making mistakes..turns out you try out a lot of new things comfortably..which increases the possibility of you winning big time with so much experience.
On the other hand…people who doesn’t have this quality are always scared of making mistakes and being judged by others…will tend not to tey new things…almost always ends up a loser.
Symptoms: Blaming others when things go wrong…trying to get credits unnecessarily…feeling low frequently…bitching about people who tries… Not approving when people around you come up with possible solutions to a problem.
Conclusion: people judging that you are an ass is a secondary problem. The primary problem is you are putting a stop on yourself from becoming big. It’s a pity that you do all this thinking you are moving ahead to achieve greatness…but in reality mediocrity will become your life.
I’m into affiliate marketing for 5 years now but I’m not rich yet! Over these past 5 years I have procured so much knowledge about how to make money online. I have had successful campaigns once in a while that kept me afloat for 5 years but nothing crazy to turn my life around. Meanwhile a lot of affiliate marketing friends are making shit tons of money and I’m nowhere near to what they have achieved. When I think about it, it is difficult to swallow…though i work on super potential projects I always end up losing interest after a while and jump onto something new and more exciting.
I have to at least figure out what’s wrong and how it can be fixed. Jumping onto one after the other is not a bad trait to have. It’s my personality..but I’m sure I can figure out a way to handle it. Well..if that’s not the real issue what else is stopping me!? It took me a while to spot the real enemy “Mediocre Thinking”. I was born into a middle class family and those lessons I kept getting when it comes to finance is pure Mediocrity.
Let’s discuss a scenario..
3 equally creative kids…one is born into a poor family.. One into a middle class.. and the last one into a wealthy family. How do you think these kids are going to evolve in next 15 years?!
Each of these kids are going to get different opportunities and exposure. It is like three layers in society..layer 3 is poor, layer 2 middle class and 1 is wealthy. People that belongs to each layer builds totally different financial framework (how they think about money) from each other. The kid from middle class is taught different lessons about money than what the rich kid is being taught.
Kids from middle class like me have this certain framework full of restrictions inside their head that gives them limiting thoughts about how not to take risks with money..how to always save and lead a mediocre life. If you are stuck into that, achieving great results will always remain a dream. With so much experience and talent the middle class kid is making decent money..meanwhile guys with little to no talent makes 3-5 times more money than he makes. Sounds unfair, but it is not.
When you think making 50k a month is awesome and you can lead a happy life with it…that is going to influence everything you want to build around yourself. I’m not saying you cannot live an happy life with 50k a month. But what if you have so much potential and your beliefs about money is limiting yourself from becoming real big? Now that sounds like a big problem to me. Thinking about making 200k a month actually make them feel uncomfortable because they have grown into this mediocre beliefs about money.
I so badly needed to build this money framework from the scratch so I can see things beyond and build a financially successful life. Instead of thinking how I can plan and spend my monthly salary 50k..I started thinking about what are all my monthly needs and how much it’s gonna cost…which comes up to 200k now that changes everything… From my thought process to the kind of action I put in…everything is different.
When you can look at your future and see how big of a life you desire to live…that alters your journey accordingly. It’s like you are getting an upgrade. This talented guy from middle class with an upgraded financial framework can easily push away untalented guys from layer 1 and move onto the topmost part of the layer. If you want to make a lot of money and achieve great things in life, you have to change your perspectives on how you think about money.
This not only applies to money… It applies to almost everything. One more thing that comes to my mind instantly is getting a girlfriend.
I’m not rich yet… At least I’m on the right track!
