Get Mad At Where You Are In Life

Meet Jimmy.

Jimmy is the average male.

He went to school, got a decent job, and did everything that society told him he should do.

Jimmy was happy for a bit, but after the monotonous repetition of modern life, he fell into a rut.

Uber Eats. Porn. Video games. Netflix. Reddit. Hot Pockets.

You know, the things that aren’t that bad if you make the conscious one-time choice… but if unconscious can lead to 30 years of mediocrity passing in the blink of an eye.

Jimmy was offered a helping hand.

The universe gave him a chance.

A feeling. A call to adventure. A higher version of himself begging… SCREAMING to be let out.

He didn’t even notice it.

Jimmy picked up the remote, clicked “Skip Intro,” took a bong rip, and woke up in a blur just to put on his work clothes.

All Is Mind

Jimmy is a concept, created by you while reading this.

When you stop, Jimmy ceases to exist.

Your attention is the barrier between Jimmy and the void.

“I’m scared,” says Jimmy.

Poof — gone.

You may have heard spiritual gurus and philosophers mention that the universe is a giant mind.

How can that be?

Well, the mind makes sense of the world through concepts, stories, metaphors, and symbols.

To understand those concepts, we need to understand the network of concepts that make it a concept.

Why is your hand a hand? Is it still a hand without an arm? What about a cup? Is that cup meaningless without a hand to pick it up?

And gravity? What the fuck is gravity? Can you understand gravity without understanding force, gravitational constant, the mass of the object, and the distance between the centers of the masses? How do you determine the mass of an object? Can there be a “center” of a mass without there being an inner and outer?

Everything you know is just a layer of stories pieced together for your understanding.

If this email was written in Chinese, would it mean anything to you? No.

The mind makes sense and gives meaning to life through stories.

“Cool Dan, got it. Very insightful yada yada bing ding word word concept story”

STORIES GIVE MEANING TO LIFE.

Your identity is the story you tell yourself. You will live out that story on autopilot if not made conscious. If not made conscious, it is impossible for it to end in your favor.

Are you the hero or the villain?

One cannot exist without the other.

The concept “hero” does not make sense without the concept “villain.”

These opposing concepts reflect the law of polarity. They create tension.

The concept of “life” does not make sense without “suffering.”

Now, whether these are labeled as “good” or “bad” is up to you.

Remember, it’s all a story. A game. Something within your control. Something within your mind.

Life implies suffering. Whether that suffering has a negative impact on you is determined by your level of consciousness and expectation.

If you expect life not to imply suffering, then you will suffer. Why? Because you are fighting against what is. You are trying to control the uncontrollable instead of flowing with it and controlling yourself within that flow.

If there is not a hero and villain of the story, it is boring. Meaningless. Unfulfilling. The story ceases to exist.

You are the actor. The player behind the character. The consciousness behind the mind.

Life is a dance between the hero and the villain.

Push pull. Wu wei. Yin yang.

The battle between good and evil is what propels you in any direction in life. If you are conscious of the battle, you move in a positive direction. If you are unconscious or resist the battle, you move in a negative direction.

The hero comes from humble beginnings. The hero levels up by playing the game. He fails… many times, but he doesn’t quit.

He get’s stronger. Cultivates a high value skill set. Rigs the game in his favor by taking full responsibility for the direction of his life.

After a few bouts with the villain, he prevails. His name is remembered. The impact he left on other’s is celebrated for centuries. His legacy is clear.

Character Select

Are you where you want to be in life?

Do you have the money, body, energy, and relationships that you want?

Are you pissed off yet?

Are you the main character in your story? Or are you a layer of stories that identifies with negative traits that do not serve you?

“I’m broke.”

“I’m a stoner.”

“I’m not good enough.”

“I’m scrawny and weak.”

You become the story you tell yourself.

This stresses the necessity of conscious identity creation through proper alignement.

Orient your thoughts, feelings, and actions in alignment with the person you want to become. The story you want to live out. Do not limit yourself.

Craft your vision.

Write down your goals.

Write down your priorities.

Use the Power Planner if you don’t already have it (free).

Gain clarity on the blatantly obvious actions that you need to be taking on a daily basis.

It is fucking simple.

Learn and apply.

Go to the fucking gym. Fix your child-like diet. Start the business you’ve been telling yourself you would start.

Don’t know how to? LEARN.

Watch a YouTube video, buy a course, ask a friend. You have access to the INTERNET for goodness sake. A land of infinite potential yet you use it to scroll through memes, watch porn, and numb your mind.

Give conscious thought your current life situation and get PISSED that you aren’t where you want to be.

While conscious, transmute that anger into building something great.

Use it as an energy source that you can tap into at any given moment.

Before you go into the gym, get pissed. Fight the mediocre potential self — the villain — inside you.

Dance with life in the present moment while being crushed by hundreds of pounds weighing you down.

Junk food? Disgusting.

Porn? For simps.

Anything less than excellence? No.

If you aren’t where you want to be in life and lack meaning, you have to become polarized.

Become so disgusted at your negative life choices that the thought of participating in that activity makes you look like an idiot.

Again, this is a dance. Anger and “evil” are only a problem when you don’t see them for what they are.

When you aren’t CONSCIOUS. When you are asleep. Mindlessly floating through life expecting shit to just fall in your lap.

Fuck that.

Get pissed off at yourself and defeat that little bitch of a voice that tries to pull you down.

Stay grounded and connected to truth while seeing life for the game it is. Then play the game as the character your consciously create.

1 HOUR. A. DAY. MINIMUM.

1 HOUR ON YOUR BUSINESS.

1 HOUR ON YOUR FITNESS.

1 HOUR ON YOUR MENTAL HEALTH.

YOU ARE JACKED, RICH, CONFIDENT, AND YOU DO NOT ACCEPT ANYTHING LESS.

WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU HAVE TO DO THAT IS BETTER THAN THIS?

NOTHING.

IT’S ALL IN YOUR MIND.

ACT. NOW.
