Hack Your Goals With Passwords

Ok here it is. The ultimate brainwashing life hack.  This isn’t gonna take long so try not to blink.  In fact, you should blink now just in case. Ok you ready to learn how to use your computer to achieve all your goals?

I’ve actually written before about the science that backs this up here actually would like to preface this with a quick story about how I personally lost 30lbs. Don’t worry, it has everything to do with the life hack.  So a little while back I got this heart rate monitor for my gym. It was cool, it showed your calories burned and your exertion rate and it assigned you points base on some algorithm the company decided on.

Long story short, the belt lets you decide your nickname. As I’m opening up the package, I’m thinking about what my awesome nickname was gonna be. I decide on “awesomest person ever,” but unfortunately it’s too many characters. (Sounds like Thanksgiving at my house)

So I decide on “Fatkid.” I thought of it as a sort of motivation. It worked as motivation alright…I gained 15 pounds within 6 months of getting the belt. Not kidding, briznit, I put on a small toddler. After months of soul searching I decide to change the nickname by one letter to “Fitkid” and poof…magic. Lost 15 and then some!

So what’s the hack? Well check this out, you use your computer, right? You type in passwords to any website repeatedly? Like maybe your email, or bank accounts? Change your password today! Change it to a goal you have like “lose5pounds” or “make10000moredollars” (neither of those is my password, by the way, so no worry) and watch how you brainwash yourself into achieving your goals by tricking yourself into writing them down daily.

Pretty cool right? If you think so, leave a comment down below. I would greatly appreciate it, but either way, thanks for reading!

Pressure Bursts Pipes

Ok so maybe I’ve been under a little pressure lately. I try to write every day for you my loyal reader because frankly, I care about you. I wanna see you succeed because I believe in raising the standard all around. We don’t live like we did 200, 100, even 50 years ago because of people that believed in a higher standard for all.

But you know with granny bear just kinda fighting for her life right now, it’s been difficult. There are problems that can easily be solved in this world, especially when it comes to relationships and business, but when it comes to life and death, the lines tend to get a little fuzzy.

De-stress not Suppress

But I’ve found a real solution that can help in relieving the pressure of stress. The best part is that you won’t wake up tomorrow morning feeling hung over or embarrassed. There’s no chance of you waking up wondering if that was a bad dream or the reality of what happens to you when you actually drink beer before liquor.

The solution? Simple.

You gotta do more winning than losing. It’s pretty much a game of stacking the odds in your favor and knowing how is key. Now I don’t have a lot of time left, because I try to keep these short for you, but I’d have you consider this before I go.

Confidence is the key to winning whatever you want in life. But the most important thing is to protect that confidence.

How do you protect your confidence?

Well that’s a question I don’t exactly have time for today, but if you’d like to discuss this more, feel free to email me here. I’d be happy to have a personal conversation with ya. Otherwise I encourage you to leave your comment below. Thanks for reading.

If Love Is Wrong…

Everyone is in love with themselves for the most part. That’s not a bad thing or a good thing, it’s just a simple fact of life. You are the only one in this world that has 100% of your own DNA.

So wouldn’t it just make sense that you’d want the best for yourself? That you’d want to make sure everything was safe and success was pretty much always guaranteed??

In a word, no.

In two words, not really

In three…ok you get the point…

In a way, it makes sense that you need to be right. I mean it’s fulfilling to solve problems and being right at times can mean the difference between life and death.

But what happens when being right is the difference between experience and inaction?

You see broseph, the thing is that we can’t even command our own fingernails to grow, so with that in mind, how can we be expected to accurately assess every natural and unnatural element that goes into each moment that is our lives.

You can’t it’s impossible, the only thing that you can (and should) have a need to be right about, is yourself. You can never go wrong there.

The world is an abundant place and if you live in this country, there are systems in place that will ensure that you’ll not be starving on the street if you have any kind of smarts and talent. So don’t be afraid to make a few mistakes, grow your knowledge/experience base and notice how easy life becomes.

Side note: When I started to accept that I make mistakes, I started to get more joy out of the fact that I wouldn’t beat myself up if things didn’t turn out the way I liked. It was like the results didn’t matter, just the experience.

Any hoo, all I’m getting at here is that you don’t know what you could be missing by always needing to be right. Sometime you don’t know what kind of fun experiences lie on the other side of being wrong.

P.S. You only know as much as you know. It’s sounds contrived, but think about it for a second. Collectively, 250 years ago, we thought leeches would cure us from ailments and diseases and people swore up and down that was the right thing to do. I’d like you to imagine what convictions you might have now that even 25 years from now you might find completely absurd. Thanks for reading and feel free to leave a comment below. Talk soon…
