Seek the Good, You’ll Find It

1. When you seek the good, you will find it.

2. A woman shouldn’t be the center of your life, but a great woman can help make your life fantastic.

3. Those screeching, harpy feminists? They are the minority. Most women out there are just as confused as we men are. Give them a break. Give them a chance.

4. While technology can be “bad” when overused, it can make life amazing. Look at how easy it is today, you can connect with amazing people across the world with a swipe, click, or a keystroke. How does it get better than that?

5. Helpers are everywhere. You just need to open your eyes to see them. Look around you. You’ll see.

5 More Unpleasant Truths – 10

  1. Those ideas, those inspirations you get wherever you are at? Write that shit down, make a note, record it on your phone. Do whatever you have to do to get it and preserve it! “Oh I’ll remember that one for later.” No you WON’T. I’m still falling prey to this one. How many times….
  2. 95% “perfect” and “out there” beats 100% “perfect” and “not out there.” Every time. No exceptions. Execution is king.
  3. 1/3 of the world will love you no matter what. 1/3 will be indifferent to you no matter what. 1/3 will hate you no matter what. Figure out who is in the love category and focus on them exclusively. Not everybody is going to like you. Do you like or love everyone you meet? Didn’t think so.
  4. Finding your voice is difficult, one of the hardest things to do. Worth it when you find it. Using your voice once you found it is even more difficult, and it’s because you care what other people think. You care about their opinions of you. Until you deal with that and stop caring what other people think, you’ll never use your voice to its full potential, if at all.
  5. Your’s is to lead. At least yourself. If you don’t, if you wait for someone else to take the lead, to take the reins, you’ll end up somewhere you didn’t want to go. And you know what? That will be your fault. Make a choice, step up. Decide. Then execute. Choosing not to choose is a choice.

5 Unpleasant Truths – 9

  1. Most of what you read, see, or hear won’t work for you. It’s bullshit. It’s one man’s take. It’s one author’s opinion. It doesn’t mean don’t try it out, or give it a shot, it just means that you have to do the work and find out what works for you.
  2. You’ll have to do a lot, and I mean A LOT of digging, searching, reading, watching, listening, and trying different things out to see what works for you. It can wear you out. Don’t let it. You’ll have to wade through a lot of fluff, filler, and bullshit to get to the kernel of truth inside.
  3. You got yourself where you are, right now, today. Your life, for better or worse, is YOUR FAULT.
  4. No one but you can turn your life around. No one but you can dig you out. You are on your own.
  5. There WILL be setbacks. There WILL be obstacles. There WILL be failures. There WILL be defeats. You will screw shit up. Royally sometimes. That’s okay. Keep going. Persevere.
