Thank you for stopping by my Free substack, I write most of this for myself and my own personal journey to just remember my own thoughts. Instead of writing the information I deem “valuable” to myself, I want to share it with the rest of the BowTied Anons that helped me pursue an amazing life at just 18 year’s old, I’ve joined the creator economy, started an LLC and became apart of the 1.5%. Considering I’m young and apart of the first generation growing up with IPad’s being used as substitutes for parenting, Haha experienced this myself.. Father? I don’t think so. IPad instead? Yeah Let’s do that… Older generation’s don’t understand the impact my generation is going through mentally being born with insane addictions toward’s high dopamine mindless activities, So that’s why I’m here to help as an actual test subject who got through the pain and somewhat made it. I don’t claim to be some mental health expert or anything, but I’ve realized some of the biggest reasons for ALL my prior “issues”. It was a more simple fix than I could have realized, it just required some small changes which overall eventually changed the entirety of who I used to be compared to now.
It’s amazing how nowadays, Even growing up without real physical figures to look up to, You have access online to “choose” who raises you based off what you will read online. It’s truly an amazing thing, And I don’t think many people realize it and abuse the fact.
Ever since I made a friend online who’s helped me with valuable information and I’ve helped him with whatever valuable information I’ve had, I proceeded to join several communities, I’ve joined many master mind groups & met amazing people who just throw insane advice away for free. With the internet nowadays, you’re really never alone. Sure the game is solo player and that will never change however you have an army behind you helping you in so many ways that previous generations never had the opportunity to be apart of. Enjoy the read.
Furthermore, Moving onto the real topic of Coming, Seeing, Taking what’s yours, then taking some more internally.
Most of you can’t take what you want, NGMI. Keep reading..
Creating, Exploring, Expanding, Conquering.
It may be that the human race is not ready for freedom. The Air of liberty may be too rarefied for us to breathe. Certainly I wouldn’t be writing this, on this subject, if living with freedom were easy. The paradox seems to be, as Socrates demonstrated long ago, that the truly free individual is free only to the extent of his own self-mastery. While those who will not govern themselves are condemned to find masters to govern over them.
Mental Loops ! We all deal with them, They are soul crushing “problems” that we face in our internal minds. We have people going from “ I want to die now, To I love life so much” so often that you’d think you are the seasons switching up so often ! What’s truly important as many can agree upon is finding consistency within yourself. I remember a time not long ago, I was 17. Couldn’t wake up early for the life of me, Instead of being happy that I closed my eyes and lost all form of understanding about life just happening to once again be AWAKE in this insane game. I would just want to ERASE it and go back to sleep. I realized it wasn’t until about a few months later, I started cold calling and relying on having to re-call certain clients early in the morning that I would not be able to sleep due to excitement for the next day, I just couldn’t wait to wake up and potentially make lifetime clients in the morning. It was as if for the first time, I had genuine meaning to waking up. When I went to high-school, I didn’t feel as if it was something for me. I was being forced, it wasn’t my full on choice. I was studying for someone else’s dream it felt like. Then it hit me, I realized the truth lies in the fact that if it had not been me attempting to do something for myself. I would continue to go through a morning-loop hole EVERY morning, dreading of having to conqueror the day. Now of course everyone’s mental loop holes are different, but the idea is that this should give you a certain perspective on the fact that once you actually sit down and actually do something for yourself, life feels so different in a way that’s not explainable, it’s as if I’ve been a slave my whole life and only became free when I attempted to do something for myself.
You know most people when they’re feeling “out of it” or “tired” they don’t even TRY to do anything to get back into working, you just argue with yourself and make excuses, I’ve met people who are literally constantly tired & I think that just comes from some mental disease like depression at that point. It’s shocking how many people continue to be mindless even after being given information on how to adapt..
Go on a walk
Wim Hof Breathing Method
Freezing Cold Shower or bath
Jump into a pool
Some caffeine if you have to
Power Nap ( I don’t like this too much because once you get too comfortable it’s more resistant to leave that comfort zone and get back into working )
Eat an avocado or banana
Drink more water
switch up the task, instead of sitting on your laptop get some important phone calls in ( works best if you get nervous the first few phone calls, gets your blood pumping nicely )
I’ll do my best to update this based off what helps me regain energy through out the day
Now that you understand how important it is to TRULY do something for one’s self, We move onto the biggest problem. Lack of action, Many mental blockades occur when we aren’t entirely sure on what it is that we have to do, so rather than ever attempting, we assume, presume & go on about our day completely disregarding the fact that if we just simply conqueror-ed that small issue then and there we would of progressed at a pace we originally never thought possible.
Sure, Problems occur where even if you attempt to solve them for several hours, or several minutes whatever you consider too long and you can’t find a solution. Just remember, More than likely a solution exists to get around that problem or break right through it.
This is the other secret that real artists know and wannabe writers don’t. When we sit down each day and do our work, power concentrates around us. The Muse takes note of our dedication. She approves. We have earned favor in her sight. When we sit down and work, we become like a magnetized rod that attracts iron filings. Ideas come. Insights accrete.
What finally convinced me to go ahead was simply that I was so unhappy not going ahead. I was developing symptoms. As soon as I sat down and began, I was okay.
How many pages have I produced? I don't care. Are they any good? I don't even think about it. All that matters is I've put in my time and hit it with all I've got. All that counts is that, for this day, for this session, I have overcome Resistance.
So many may wonder how people work and flow, Something like eCommerce provides me with a flow because it’s slightly difficult considering you have to go through some creative exploration however it’s also just perfect because things just come together in a sense that you can go on “Brave” and figure out all of your problems by doing research. Sometimes I’ll work for several hours because of a thrill, however sometimes the case is I work best if I do 90 minute work sessions, 20 minute breaks.
First of all, All of you bozos I’m trying to keep it real here. You’re all heavily distracted and it’s absolutely insane. I remember at 16, I met up with a friend that invited about 3 other people to hangout with on his rooftop. So we had been chatting for not even 5 minutes and this kid who invited us pulls out his phone ! Proceeds to scroll on instagram and text women for the next few hours. Don’t get me started on how many of you go on tik tok when you’re just trying to take a PEE or poop, can’t even use the bathroom in peace you seek stimulation like some addict. At 17, I saw some 40 year old on the subway, fat, bad posture, watching anime on his phone. I was TERRIFIED. Safe to say I completely dropped watching anime after seeing that. So do what I did from there, How about you try avoiding all social media apps that don’t directly correlate with your progress in the game of life for at least a couple of weeks. Most of you can’t handle a couple of minutes… Just try focusing on being creative as much as possible, no mindless scrolling or doing silly things. 10% of Americans own an LLC, 15% of that 10% is 20-30. Considering I’m 18, That puts me in the 1.5%,
I will gladly say eCommerce still has SO MUCH room for younger minds especially to adapt into creating content that provides value. You know what I’ve noticed getting here? Your phone is essentially a drug you buy for around $1000 if you get an Iphone. Now you have access to the entire worlds brain essentially, however that computer gives you FREE DRUGS that directly stimulate your dopamine receptors so you don’t get anything done, Do what you will realizing this information. Everyone is addicted to some kind of drug, Even making money is a drug. So PICK your drug ! It is 100% not normal to go from instagram, netflix, youtube, tik tok, twitter, snapchat, facebook, gaming on your phone and then try to create a business online. You just used up your life force of energy and disrupted your dopamine receptors. No way will they wanna do anything like “Creating”. It’s not that difficult, calm down. Take a break stop being an idiot and giving away Free Energy towards ridiculous unknown objectives. Going back to what I said earlier “While those who will not govern themselves are condemned to find masters to govern over them.” Social platforms are where people go to become mindless, because they CANNOT control themselves internally and CRAVE a distraction from the “PAIN”. Social platform’s are your Controlling force and it eventually turns to govern you entirely if you don’t govern yourself anon… I’ve seen men and women alike with their most important daily decision consisting of providing the BEST of the BEST post of themselves for instagram for their 1000 followers, Odd isn’t it..?
I will never comprehend why doesn’t everyone meditate ? You need to understand you’re made up of energy and never taking a moment of only 20 minutes, ONLY 20… To reclaim that energy and redirect it towards your inner self so that you can be at peace and aware of your body to stay in a present moment. Without meditating your energy is just shooting all over the place like a child who’s had an overdose of sugar.
Resistance is directly proportional to love. If you’re feeling massive Resistance, the good news is, it means there’s tremendous love there too. If you didn’t love the the project that is terrifying you, you wouldn’t feel anything.
The opposite of love isn’t hate; It’s indifference.
The more resistance you experience, the more important your un-manifested art/project/enterprise is to you—-and the more gratification you will feel when you finally do it.
In other words, any act that rejects immediate gratification in favor of long-term grown, health, or integrity. Or, expressed another way, any act that derives from our high nature instead of our lower. Any of these will elicit Resistance.
This brings us to..
Corresponding with too much stimulation, and resistance. If you obtain and consume gratification from things other than your progress in the creator world, simply NGMI… Direct your energy, Focus ! Not for a few hours, or a few days. But weeks, months. Take time to learn, adapt. It takes a FULL 30 minutes to re-focus your energy on a topic after being distracted. Now take note of all the people who are trying to refocus and don’t even ever bother meditating ? It’ll take way longer to refocus and in the process they’ll get frustrated. It’s not that hard, stare at a blank screen if you have to, Create, Create, Create, Create.
Like our IQ, talent is a gift from our ancestors. If we're lucky, we inherit it. In the fortunate talented few, the dark dimension of their natures will first resist the labor that creativity demands, but once they commit to the task, their talented side stirs to action and rewards them with astonishing feats. These flashes of creative genius seem to arrive from out of the blue for the obvious reason: They come from the unconscious mind. In short, if the Muse exists, she does not whisper to the untalented.
Being Alone, That is the secret of invention, be alone, That is when ideas are born. It gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Think about it, Almost none of our current population spends the time to sit alone, with just their own thoughts nothing else. Almost nobody does such a thing ! You could think of it as a long meditative session. In my personal light, I think if you’re able to do this then you’re already ahead of most people, simply because everyone always wants distractions or some sort of stimulation, they fear being alone with their thoughts. It’s similar to why high dopamine activities are so strong. Everyone who turns to them is normally just in the midst of entering these thoughts they are “scared” of. You aren’t your thoughts.. You can control what you think, but still occasionally thoughts from the past or possible future arise when you aren’t living in the moment and you have to remember these thoughts do not define who you are.
At the end of the day, It’s really as simple as acquiring a laptop & letting your creative mind explore from that point on, please don’t over complicate it, you’re smarter than that, you have millions of years worth of our ancestors blood coursing through your veins.
