Stop reading self-help guides, yaddayadda. "The Secret", "4hr Work Week","anything by Tony Robbins or whatever his fucking name is" You already have everything it takes to create the lifestyle you want. Self help guides are full of feel-goodery advise that will motivate you and give you that sugar sweet high, but motivation of that kind doesn't work in the long term, it feeds the deep pockets of those that preach it, otherwise why the fuck would these people put a price on their advice? A starving family in some 3rd world country doesn't concern itself with esoteric, "think and it shall be done" bullshit. You're on the street and you need to eat, what the fuck are you gonna do. Are you gonna think yourself rich? I fucking doubt it. The truth to getting what you want is, find somewhere you can add value, any niche, any product, any service, try and do it better than the other guy. If you can't manage that then get a day job. YOU WILL NEVER FIND AN EASY SOLUTION. Yes , you might envisage an incredible short term money maker, that will trick a few people into coughing up their hard earned money, but easy come easy go, the money you might have made from said scam, won't last long and you certainly won't enjoy the feeling that comes after spending it. Man the fuck up, create or die. If you don't have something to offer the world, to make someones life easier, the GTFO, not for our sake, but for your own. In the words of that Octupus fuck from Star Wars "It's a trap" Take a cold, hard look at yourself, look reality straight in the eyes, without fear and try and understand your situation. If you can't do that, you will fail I can assure you of that. If you can be the person that constantly and diligently assesses your reality, from one moment to the next, then you are already winning. Keep it real sounds like a fairly cheesy line, but take it from someone who has been in this game for a long time and fallen for every trick in the game, it might seem like a depressing move, but keeping your eyes on the prize and ensuring that no bullshit fantasies get in the way, is really the only way to go. If you are still looking for that little get out of jail free card, then stop. Immediately. It's never going to happen. That's not to say you can't achieve your goals, of course you can, but get your fucking head out of the sand and don't stop pursuing what you want until it's done. Is your room untidy? Well don't tidy it. That's another distraction. Some might say, tidy space-tidy mind. Well that's bullshit. If you tidy your room, you will feel better I can assure you, that's your mind say, "well done, you achieved something today....Why not have a little downtime"... Fuck THAT! Don't stop. Don't ever stop until you've got what you want. If you are giving up your time to follow your dreams, given that your time is the most precious thing you will ever have, then don't let ANYTHING get in the way. No handy-wavy nonsense, no self-help guides, no facebook,reddit or anything. You're a starving African child and nobody is going to feed you. Just Fucking DO IT.
