NO BOOZE, NO CARBS, ONLY TOIL

Most people seek their own downfalls thru superfluous caprices. They afford themselves luxuries and grow accustomed to them and with that newly found verve, recklessly curve their lives into an abyss. Life, sometimes, isn’t easy. And sometimes the cards we are dealt are dreadful — sickness, loss, bad luck are usually the underlying causes of deep melancholy.

But things do not have to go wayward, young chap. You can of course choose a different path. You can, instead of gouging your faces into pizza pies, opt to work out at the gym, eat healthy, and take up a clean avocation. Perhaps you’re low on funds — but are you also low on curiosity? You can quite literally envelope yourselves into a wonderful rich world of art and literature, the best achievements of mankind, right now. There are endless paths you can take to cure your doldrums. Watching movies is one thing — but have you tried to pursue true excellence in cinema? This must all sound obnoxious to some of you — but I don’t give a shit. One of you out there needs to hear this.

STOP DRINKING. It destroys men. Never ever drink while sad.

STOP EATING SHITTY FOODS. You find too much pleasure in the finer things in life. If it tastes too good — it’s bad for you so spit it out.

WORK HARD, at the gym and also in your career. If your career is shit — be frugal and save money and make smart choices with your money.

The relationships you have do not have to define you. They need not break your spirit and cause you to waste away into nothing. I am eternally bullish on mankind — because I can see past the grift and the pettiness and see wonderful things all around me. I am not a religious man — but if I was I would feel blessed for being able to live in these interesting times.

Cheers.

    For anyone who wants to improve in multiple areas and you don’t know where to begin, my recommendation is to start with Healthy Eating. Once you get in that groove, you’ll find that working out is easier, avoiding booze is easier, being smarter at work is easier, etc, etc. And on the flip side, for me personally, once I start cheating on the diet then I notice my will power slipping in all other areas of life and everything unravels quickly. For some people being “good” comes naturally and for others it is a constant struggle, but it is all worth it.

    Also take pride in everything you do.
    Especially: Act in a manner that you can be proud of as well.

    Here is some wisdom I’ve drawn from Jordan Peterson and Gorge Soros.

    I play with my pee pee. When it starts pointing North, it means a bull market ahead. When it erupts in hot goo it means buyers have exhausted themselves. Hope this provides the inspiration you need to follow your dreams.
