The Most Unpleasant of Unpleasant Truths

The One Who Always Comes for You in the End.

I’ve covered this particular topic many times in the past. The most recent was here. I’ve also mentioned it to my e-mail subscribers on more than one occasion as well.

Why do I keep going over it? Why do you see, hear, and read other Men talking about it? It’s because it’s that important and if you don’t recognize it, realize it, and most importantly, do something about it, you’ll never change. You’ll never get better than what you already are.

What is it that I’m talking about?

You are where you are in your life because of you and the choices you have made thus far. In short, your life is your fault. All of it.

Only you can decide for yourself if and when you want to do something different. Only you can give up your excuses. Until you do, you will stay right where you are. You will do nothing different, you’ll be nothing different, and you’re life will continue to go down the path that it is on. For some of you, that means your life will go nowhere.

Then one day you will die. And that will be it.

Over.

Finished.

Done.

When are you going to do something different? On your deathbed? Nice try, but too late then.

What are you putting off doing today for tomorrow?

Let me take the suspense and the drama out of it for you. There’s no tomorrow. There’s no, and I mean, ZERO guarantee that you’ll be around tomorrow.

Is this “too heavy” for you? Too serious? Too “dark?”

I’ve got news for you. I don’t care what you think about it. Neither does life, nature, the Universe, or what we know as reality, care either.

So what’s stopping you? Fear? Shame? Guilt? Mom and Dad’s approval? What excuse are you using to stop from truly living?

When are you going to do what you truly want to do? 5 years from now? 10? 20? Never?

If you are going to live your life trying to “do the right thing,” if you are going to live for someone else’s expectations, if you are going to live to “serve other’s,” guess what? You might as well not be alive at all.

If you want to serve other’s, you have got to serve yourself first. In order to give someone else 100%, you’ve got to give 100% to yourself first. Whatever you are giving to yourself is the most that you can give to someone else.

Giving yourself 50%? That’s the maximum you can give to other’s. 25%? Less? That’s all you will be able to give to other’s. At a maximum.

Stop putting off your life. Stop procrastinating. Go pick up chicks. Start your own business. Go travel and see sights and do the things you’ve always wanted to do. Stop seeking approval from other’s. Stop waiting around. Time is NOT your friend on this one.

You can always make more money. You can always get another job. You can always start another business. You can always get another woman. You can always get into another relationship. You can always make new friends.

You can’t, I repeat, you cannot get your time back.
