Awesome experience as always, even though the delivery guy labeled me as the security guard, but thats OK-hehe. I dont mind! I was wearing my sleeveless "cut off", so I get it, hehe. Looking kinda menacing. !
cheers guys, y'all made my Saturday already, hehe.
Thought I'd start this one off with a quote - what I just sent Amazon.
Although the term "security guard" probably evokes images of menacing burly men with automatic weapons in some parts of the world, in others - like India, and china for one - it's merely "mortals" - sometimes just carrying nothing but a huge stick - and often times pot bellied or even obese from sitting around all day.
The very guards supposed to guard your property probably couldn't run an inch to save their own lives if they had to, in most cases they ain't armed either. Hehe.
But anyway, this morning I ordered two sweatshirts off Amazon, received them with usual gorilla grunt of "appreciate it" - and then got the following message on my phone.
"Delivered to security guard".
That made me smile. I Dont know if he thought I was the guard - I doubt it, I was in my house - or apartment, what have you - so probably a basic error on his part, which is completely fine and alright, but maybe he did!
I was wearing my sleeveless cut off - with arms out, in all their vascular glory, not that I give two shits about any of that.
But there was a lot of physical stuff going on yesterday, so the vibe permeates!
Only a 100 squats - but I did some sprinting outdoors while my daughter was learning how to ride a bike - now this, my friend, my wife has apparently been trying to teach her for donkey's years, it didnt work, the bikes she bought were gathering dust - go figure - and she had one of her good ideas the other day "father and daughter riding together" - and presto - within the space of two hours, my daughter can now ... CYCLE!
A skill she should have done learned years ago.
She knows a bit, but I regret not being able to get in the pool with her as I did years ago, I could really teach her some good stuff.
All of which I picked up myself, including cycling, scrapes and all, but anyway the little girl's smile is back.
She's a CHAMP.
If you let her be!
Precious few idiots do ...
Anyway, that led to a lot of running and then almost - Bourne style - SPRINTS!
Almost, not nearly as quick or for as long, but getting there. Try doing what ole Mickey did in Rocky III as a workout for Rocky, i.e. tie a cycle to your back and run while he's on the bike behind you - NOT pedaling, and do NOT let him fall off.
If you dont want to do that, then tie a stone around your neck and do squats like the ancient Indian wrestlers, and even Till THIS DAY! - do.
Not quite so extreme?
Well, try sprinting alongside or in front of a bike while someone rides full tilt, see how long you can keep it.
Or, do what I did later, chop up thick pipes meant for carrying GAS - with a somewhat blunt knife.
Talk about a grip and forearm workout, those veins were PULSATING. (not even by the end of it).
Anyway, all lots of fun, capped off by being Mr Security Guard as well, yet another name to add to that burgeoning list!
Now, where does all of this lead?
Of course, to a sale - and to promote a product which will have YOU feeling like nothing else can.
Advanced Hill Training, my friend, shows you the proper way to walk - run - and sprint - and get in super shape, the best shape of your life - within 2 minutes flat if you can last a quarter of that time (dont even go "there". hehe).
but it's true, a lot of guys cant...
But anyway, I'm talking sprints!
And this is a product a lot of you have not got as yet, yet need to pick up NOW.
ALong with that, for workouts that will have you building muscle like nothing else you've ever done before - Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness with all it's brutal, old school and unconventional (they all go together) workouts - coupled with the MODERN (i.e. I dont actually require you to dig pits or do squats with heavy circular stones around your ole neck as they do in akharas till today) is the TICKET.
And thats that - remember as always though to build a proper BASE and start off with the much vaunted, one and only 0 Excuses Fitness System.
Life's a trip eh.
Thats some trippy ass shit, Holmes!
aka Training Day, that movie I'll never stop watching, one that to me is a classic, albeit not spoken about a lot. (but most people know it!).
Alonzo, that whole movie - just - thats by far, to me Denzel's best movie!
I still remember we had a choice between watching "Snow Dogs" and "Training Day" when it first came out, with the girlfriend, pizza and beer galore, weekend off from work in NY - and we were discussing which one to watch first.
No prizes for guessing which one I chose (those were the "Blockbuster Video" days - anyone remember that chain? Hehe).
She wasn't too happy about it.
"You'll just fall asleep later and wont watch Snow Dogs with me!"
And I dont believe we ever did watch it. Hehe. What she said was true. It happened, next day - I dont know, we went somewhere, then work, then we had to drop the videos off - another classic case of people getting what they dont really have any plans on REALLY following through on. Believe me, if she really wanted to watch that movie, she'd have found a way. Hehe.
It was more about the romance...
Anyway, where am I going with this - ah yes, technology.
From Blockbuster video to DVD players, to computer DVD players, to ... well, Wifi, broadband dumbphones, and now back to the good ole days for many people.
Reminds me of what my Dad once said about the Middle East.
"They rode in on camels, they drive in swanky cars, they'll ride OUT on camels too".
They aint the only ones, eh. Hehe.
I just read Nasa has successfully crashed a "vending machine size spacecraft" into an asteroid the size of a football field.
To stop it from destroying the Earth (or others like it).
Which is great - as we destroy the Earth ourselves here, or as humans we seem to be doing a good job of destroying planet Earth better than any asteroid ever could - while they focus on the tech to protect us from the other threats which pale in comparison to the REAL threats facing us NOW.
The irony of it all ...
Anyway, fitness wise?
Technology is something I adopt - early.
I was amongst the first to pioneer digital only downloads on the website, when everyone told me to sell physical books.
dont get me wrong here.
I sell physical books too.
And for a good reason, those that buy those are the old fashioned guys - my type of guys.
But digital, well, thats the trend, I saw it coming a long time ago, so might as well jump on the bandwagon eh - and I was proved right on that as well.
I believe in giving you ALL options - so we even have hardcover on the site for most of our products.
And, although the initial download of the 0 Excuses Fitness System was over 2GB in size, since most will play it on the dumbphone, I made it dumbphone compatible and reduced file size etc to the very manageable on most broadband/4G connections 10-12 min download, if even that (that will go down in the future even more as we ramp up hardware even more behind the scenes).
I never once sold physical DVD's though, and I doubt I EVER will - despite some of my hardcore customers burning the material to THEIR own DVD's. And hey, gotta love old school there too my friend!
Some things though, I'll always be old fashioned, because old fashioned and playing the long game (right) - well, you can never go wrong in terms of those two.
And fitness wise, life wise, you'll always find me to be old school, always - no exceptions.
And that, I suppose is that.
Of all the "butt hurt" comments - this one caused another chuckle.
On Twitter, some dame asked about "why do guys like chubby girls".
We all know what she meant by that.
And so forth.
Women, when they're slim they're too slim, when they're chubby they're not happy with it, and so forth. But this isn't about that, this is about my reply.
As some of you no doubt know women "claim" to love something to "hold on to".
Reality is this - friend, what women really want in that area? Isnt a large wanker or everything people talk about, it's strong arms, back and a TONED midsection with very little no fat, especially around the lower abs.
This goes for whether she "loves you or not".
But if she "loves you" (translate - if she's getting a lot of money, hehe) - she'll be more than happy to hold on to that pudge wudge around your midsection and say "more to hold on to".
Truth is, nah, it aint just about money either, sometimes ... well, with yours truly, I've had that happen a lot with girls that paid my way (not that I asked, but they insisted, how can a dude refuse when it's offered that nicely, hehe) on most things ...
But I always knew I was FAT (when I was).
Anyway, I replied in brief (NO puns) to the girl explaining all this.
Some butt hurt dude showed up saying this -
"chubby is not fat so not getting your point!!!!!!!!!!!"
Like dude, yeah, "plump" as a certain very happy Carol once referred to herself as isn't technically fat either is it?
Phat isn't either.
Gargantuan isn't technically fat either, is it - or is lard ass?
I mean, the extent to which people go to to be either politically correct, or butt hurt, or a combo there in never ceases to boggle the mind does it.
Look, if you're fat you're fat, bottom line, aint no two ways around it pally.
So says the hombre that ALWAYS delivers.
And to get your delivery of the fitness system that resolves any fat, pudge or "chub" issues you might have nigh quick, get the 0 Excuses Fitness System right NOW.
And thats that.
People are often confused about how to best focus on their goals and achieve them.
Note that I'm not talking about any of the following - goal setting, visualization, the "how to achieve the goal" (i.e. the get down to brass tacks methods you need to use) - and certainly not about success, money etc.
But it's this - once you've set your sights on a goal, usually distant, and no progress seems to happen for days, months, even years occasionally despite your persistence, you find your will flagging sometimes.
Applies to life, fitness, everything.
And the advice I give everyone is what you can learn from following Amazon, and how they did things over the years (I've always done it the same way too, but I'm giving you another example).
(also why they're pretty much the only companies I'll do business with - "companies" because each of Amazon's sub companies is a world unto itself, all under the same umbrella - sheer genius - so it should be).
(and their entire founding team was the geniuses on this one, not just Bezos, though his vision and core principles are what caused it all to happen).
Anyway - what is the advice?
Two bits, really.
One, focus on making a better product - or service - regardless of everything else.
The economy might suck, or it might boom, but a better service never goes out of style, or a better product, or more value for money, or OVERDELIVERING while underpromising, all of the things we do around here basically.
And two, more importantly, or just as - other than focus on customers and not competitors (fitness wise, this means focus on YOU, not the rest of the people doing this or that, telling you this or that or their results of lack thereof) ...focus on this one thing - make a better version of YOU Daily.
If you're a writer, focus on even better writing.
If you're working out, make sure that last workout was great - and the one today is better in some regard.
Business people, sometimes it might seem you're stuck, can't move ahead, waiting for the right breaks etc?
I get it.
But, there's always something you can do, there's always some way you can improve your offering, there's always some minor tweak to some process you can make somewhere that will, whether they know it NOW or not benefit the customer down the road (and therefore you too)..
Long story short?
Life is about living a better you - daily.
Shoot for improvement in something everyday.
Never rest on thy laurels.
Its the baby steps that really get you there, applied with persistence and vision, courage and gumptions, HEART AND GUT!
And it's something you can control.
Results are something you cannot control, effort - especially when applied the right way and to improve yourself daily - IS.
Focus on what you CAN do - and control - rather than all the intangible (at the end of the day) bullshit you CANNOT, and life becomes a lot fuckin easier, a lot smoother, a lot less worry and hassle, trust me on this NOW and believe me later!
As a certain company Rolls Royce Publications's tagline goes, "from the heart".
"Dil Se", they say in hindi.
So it should be, brah.
So it should be!
PS - More solid motivation to be found right here, if the world is getting you down, if you're floundering, if you're looking for success but not getting it, well the road map is mapped out in Zero to Hero (Vol #2 on the way) and Gumption Galore (from a tips standpoint). Get these two great books NOW!
PS #2 - Quote of the day from Emil Coue ...
"Day by day, in every way, I'm getting better and better".
But just saying it wont do the trick.
DO what it takes to achieve it.
And thats the point of this dispatch...
An odd one, this, but more on CULTURAL differences I suppose!
(I'm an odd dude, remember, hehe. Nah, not really, a Bozo said that!)
I've noticed it in China and India (the two Asian countries I've been in and lived in the most - I suppose I could add in Vietnam and a few others, but I'd prefer to list the countries where I've really lived long term) ...
in China, food has to be so fresh that you literally kill it on the table apparently - sometimes in most grotesque fashion.
Sometimes you eat the damn animal while it's alive - not even kidding you, while that is extreme, it's common place to see seafood being gulped down barely dead in restaurants all across China, perhaps even Japan.
(not sure about Korea) ..
If it wasn't killed "right then" it wasn't fresh.
India too is the same way in many regards, while it's not so much about butchering the animal damn near on your plate, food better be cooked FRESH or else!
Then you have the West, and those in India and China used to how it is in the West (yours truly falls in both categories) ...
where you cook once, and you stuff food in the pantry, or larder, or whatever it is - or your big ass freezers you've got all over the place.
Theres always "wars" over this i.e. is it better fresh or not fresh.
The wife claims "Mom's food should be fresh" - and most likely Mom thinks she takes it to extremes i.e. the wife about the freshness part.
Yours truly doesn't claim to be an expert on this...
But yours truly can see both points of view, and where they come from, and yours truly gracefully bows out of any such arguments, and does his best never to get involved.
But to YOU on this list, I'm more than happy to discuss, rant, ramble about anything and everything - as y'all well know, hehe.
SOME things are fine even post expiry - for instance, if a pack of green tea (tea bag) has "expired" - I doubt it really matters so long as the damn thing is still packed and not opened.
I usually drink mine fresh and freshly sourced, of course...
but I've had that sort of thing "in a pinch" before, and it aint affected me none.
Oh, I was just classified as underweight for my height - probably am - was in 2016 in China as well, I'm down to the exact same weight NOW.
"Hey Mom" I laughed. So long as my vitals and medical tests are all ok, low resting pulse and that, all is well!
And so it IS. Hehe.
Anyway - on the other hand, food?
Again, some things are better freshly cooked, for instance, vegetables and stuff, Indian flatbreads etc - NOTHING beats freshly cooked there, or freshly cooked Chinese food and stuff - some stuff you just can't put in the microwave.
And reheat, or thaw out.
Other hand, other things - like frozen meats and stuff?
I'll thaw 'em out, cook 'em - and eat 'em - and raid the larder all damned day and night long for it!
Or, I might even put it in the microwave and eat the beef RAW, blood literally dripping from it as happened at age 20 once.
Not what I recommend, neither do I Recommend putting CD's in the microwave and ruining it "for the hell of it" - unless it's an old fucker you want to toss anyway, which we wanted to, damn that SOB was heavy - I remember lugging it backside to the dumpster!
Then again other things like toothpaste etc?
A few weeks past the expiry date wont kill ya on that either ...
I'm curiously enough despite a lot of my other stances "in the middle on this one" - while the folks that oppose either viewpoint or are for it are very vehemently on one side or the other.
So be it, hehe.
That bit of tongue wag - or chin wag - aside ?
Fitness wise, I'll tell you this, try and get your nutrients in yes, in whatever manner you want, but I'll tell you one goddamned thing, I've been telling you this all along, food ain't half as important and IS twice as addictive - as it's made out to be.
Trust me on this one.
True, Exercise is King and Nutrition is Queen, together they make a kingdom ...
But diet is one thing, you can have the best diet in the world, if you're a lazy ass and wont work out, it'll still show and you will feel it too - other hand, a not so good diet, or lack of it, or thereforth and brutal workouts done right?
Well, that shows too, pally...
And thats that.
P.S. - The Simple and Effective Diet is yours GRATIS with a purchase of the 0 Excuses Fitness System, and you'll find two of the most important secrets to losing weight FAST (and getting your hormones in order and all that jazz) in the initial few pages of the book, they're secrets, but they're right there in front of you, so obvious you might not even notice it, so look CAREFULLY.
Last night, I was informed by my lovely (not, or maybe so? Hehe) wife that the daughter was off from school today.
Oh, really, I asked. (I was thinking "no-one tells me these things anyway" but I didnt tell her that).
"Yes", she went.
And then she said the school gave the kids a day off to prepare for the upcoming Math exam or something.
More drama from a pathetic excuse of a school - I wont name it, but I went to it growing up, and the farce it's descended into now, where teachers are more interested in playing games and painting their nails in class while doing "F all" in terms of teaching the students anything - giving them as many breaks as possible (these kids know next to ZERO compared to what we knew growing up) - coddling them (so they dont have to do any work i.e the teachers) - and giving them the entire term's work in one day three or four days before the exam...
Again, I'm REALLY tempted to name and shame here. But I wont, for now ...
This is one of the top schools in Delhi if you can believe that, of course, I never wanted my daughter put in there, I've been there, I know how it is, but of course the wife and parents had other thoughts, each blamed the other, I still remember the frantic email I got from Dad in 2017 or 2016, I was teaching a lovely Carol English, hehe - and she canceled her class to get printouts of some form I had to sign and send back (wife claimed parents were on her ass, Dad ie Mom claimed "it was sooooooo urgent" and being I wasn't there, well) ...
And its interesting, the very adults who bitch and moan about all this on whatsapp groups and such are the same ones that pay huge bucks to these schools, and dont dare to once complain, those that do - like me - they let me "take the fall" (while silently hoping I'll do more of the same).
People in general are just fuckin pathetic these days, gutless, spineless, I gotta say it.
Oh, I once mentioned home schooling to my wife (I remember chatting about it with Marc the African Silverback Gorilla too) - the blowback I got - boy.
The ignorance, its just not worth combating it - sometimes. Hehe. Most of the times it IS!
Anyway - so I was then told to help my daughter prepare for Math.
OK, I went.
I was the one who suggested (against all family advice) that she learn Spanish - and NOT French or any other second language (and hey - practical purposes, Spanish is spoken widely in tons of places, you need good English yes, but Spanish is a close very practical second!)
Anyway, this young senorita - or Princesspa (if you were to go Italian, hehe) -doesnt quite like it when Dad asks her to do anything meaningful, workouts included.
To be expected, given the Nazi feminist conditioning being drilled into her you'd say since day one, but it's more than that my friend.
The bottom line is this - she views Dad as the "fun guy" - and the two women (mom and Granny - in fact she's even got names for the two of them, hehe) as the "disciplinarians".
They try and change this (the two ladies).
But it doesnt work much like a lot of what they try to do ultimately doesnt work ... illogical behavior never results in anyting but more "illogic" .
Anyway, I gave up dealing with that mess a long time ago.
In my own fun way I deliver more results than all the "yelling" in the world would.
And when it's time to do something, I inject that tone of seriousness into things, and the daughter knows it - which is what counts.
Not for me what I had growing up i.e. a Dad I was "scared" of (though I didnt need to be) - ditto for Mom (I still remember the scene at the age of 2 where I was literally "gheraoed" into a corner and yelled at or something for throwing up in the swimming pool post lunch or something).
Dont get me wrong, tough love is good, but like all things, it needs to be done in MODERATION - even my mother once privately admitted that "with you you're the first kid, we made mistakes yes".
She'll never admit it NOW, of course. Heh.
But thats perfectly fine, I dont mind at all.
Anyway, this mistake riddled "fun" guy that supposedly knows nothing (interesting how my wife told me last night "teach her the Spanish you know" - I was going to say I know a lot more than the damn teacher who bailed from the school and these idiots never replaced her, but there would be no point, would there??) about anything?
My wife seems to have forgotten her own words. Hehe.
And I made it easier, of course, by never talking about what I do know which is a substantial bit.
Hell, a guy that literally has an alarm clock in his head, a guy that HAS to get things done NOW - a guy that woke up despite hating mornings for years at 530 AM in the morning to hike hills, a guy that bangs out squats and pullups and more without fail, keeps on improving - and thats just the business and life part...
I'd say I know a thing or two about discipline.
But I dont enforce it on those where there would be no point. Waste of freaking time and energy ...
Anyway - point of all this?
This fun guy can get you in the best shape of your life - in a fun way you never imagined possible. It might be many things, ardous, tortorous, you might feel like yelling at me (I know a lot of you DO, hehe) - and more - but one thing I'll guarantee - it'll be fun, fresh and interesting.
Go HERE To learn more about it.
I dont EVEN know where to start on this, the titles swirled around in my head until I did what I do normally, just blurt it out. Hehe.
But really, this movie - this Ben Affleck movie (I've never ever been an Affleck fan - Matt Damon, hell yes - always! - but Affleck, well, I dont know if I should be ashamed or proud to say this, but before today I wouldn't recognize him if I saw him, this is the first movie I've seen of him - and I'm halfway or a little more through it) I've been watching on a whim, mostly because of their false movie descriptions ...
(they market the movie as "a couple that agrees since there is no love between them the wife can cheat" - and she does - except what the husband thinks is NEVER considered throughout the movie, it is all completely non consensual, yet the movie description reads otherwise).
It is basically a movie about an UNWILLINGLY cuckolded husband.
Why did I watch it, or start to.
Well, simple - i wanted to see how the couple "agreed" to doing this, how they worked out the eventual guilt trips etc with something like that - when one partner gets it all, the other gets less than zero if you get my drift - and really, its not like I need a tutorial on it.
I've known plenty of couples that agree to this sort of thing, plenty of girls I've been with have done it knowingly to their husbands...
To me, if two consenting adults think it through and agree to it, dont try and make it mainstream "my way or the highway" as these damned liberals do, to me if they keep it between those that enjoy that sort of "play" as its called, to me so long as it's kept within the confine of bedrooms - hey.
I ain't gonna and neither do I have a right to comment upon or judge what two adults do privately behind closed doors so long as it's SSC (safe, sane, consensual) and legal obviously, and its not shoved down my throat for one.
But its when it's non consensual that the obvious problems start...
(in this movie the husband isn't even considered, let alone ASKED if it's OK, the wife openly cheats, brags about it, does it in front of her husband, and so forth, he's forced to just watch despite not liking it - and that is just the start of it).
Anyway, this is not about the movie (it isn't about the Bozo either, when I said I know tons of couples doing that sort of thing, I meant sane people, not idiots like Glyn who can't handle their own myriad and weird fantasies - come to think of it, Glyn, married, couple, wouldn't happen. Hehe.
Anyway back to Affleck - I'll say one damn thing, his acting isn't half bad in the movie as the barely concealed violence within him (he basically kills all the guys his wife cheats on him with openly ie he doesnt kill openly, but the wife cheats openly) - and despite his nice guy demanor, he never once says anything to his wife or tries stopping her (except on a couple of occasions where his rage shows) despite friends telling him to rein her in ... he never raises his voice, he's as cool as the proverbial cat, and ... well, good acting is all I can say in that regard. Didnt know Affleck was a good actor, I guess thats why Damon and him hung out together!
I dont know or care so much about the "gay" rumors, like I care either way about that.
But anyway, physically?
Dude has it SPOT ON!
Big, solid guy, no fat - just SOLID pure muscle - broad shoulders, muscular back and traps, though he's the cuckold in the movie, you feel sorry for the "studs"! You literally do -Affleck's mere present suggests hidden violence, and his physicality backs that shit up.
He looks like he works out old school, lots of pull-ups, swimming, perhaps a lot of hiking, weights done RIGHT, and so forth ...
Anyway - throughout the movie one thing they get right - IGNORING.
The way he stays calm and emotionless drives his wife INSANE when they discuss her infidedlity, she taunts, she teases, she makes him do all sorts of humiliating things, but he never once loses it. Hehe. At least in public and in front of her he doesnt, privately he's in a rage!
I dont quite know why. I've not finished the movie, an obvious who dun it from the word go (hell, Affleck's character even admits it openly at the beginning of the movie at a rave party or something) ... I'm sure there'll be some corny reason for it.
But ignoring women - or the Nazi feminists, as shown in the movie, well thats one tip right there in my book on benefiting from Nazi feminism! (while combating it) . . .
Anyway - ignoring works if thats the goal, or perhaps as I've said before if you're ignoring idiots in general which like a certain Bozo Schofield can't stomach the mere thought of being ignored or blocked, let alone it actually happening.
But it does not work in terms of solving the problem.
It didnt work in the movie.
And it doesnt in real life.
Lots of people stick their heads in the sand and ignore whats going on around them, then they say "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil"
the real world dont work like Gandhi said it does. Hehe.
Look, it's one thing to not let yourself get affected by it all - that should be how it is, but not knowing, ignoring, pretending problems dont exist, that only makes things worse.
And your fitness is the same.
Lots of people ignore their rapidly deteriorating health for one...
They buy X size clothing to cover up that belly, then a few weeks later claim "they're big, not fat", then end up at the Plus size stores buying larger clothes to conceal the issue, all the while deep down inside they know the problem wont and hasn't gone away.
Then, those on the list that know they need some of my products.
Except, those some people are too damned cheap to invest in themselves, so they ignore these emails (but they still read and moan about price, hehe, so much for ignoring).
Look, thats fine if thats you.
Ultimately I can't control what you do - its up to you - yes, I CAN say this is not the right place for you if thats you, other than that though, well, its a free world, and I dont believe in forcing horses that dont want to to drink (I couldn't anyway, so I wouldn't bother wasting my time).
So thats the medley of thoughts for now.
If you're one of those that believes in SOLVING your fitness problems that have been staring you in the face for ages, then the 0 Excuses Fitness System is a great, great start.
P.S. - This P.S was written before the actual somewhat verbose (but that is OK!) email - there's SO much going on here, including new books and products on the way - that I'd take up three or more emails just telling you about 'em.
Might not seem that way, given the amount of emailing I've been doing as of late, but I do a lot - that ole work ethic people that really know me know so well about!
Second to none, first above all. Hehe.
I ain't even bragging, I'm being very flat out honest.
But anyway, one of those big things is that a list will be coming up AGAIN on this site i.e. rahulmookerjee.com, and while right NOW, these are all going to the 0 Excuses Fitness list, these will be resegmented again (As it was when I first started out, I had two lists).
So if you want updates from both - sign up for BOTH lists.
I'll keep y'all posted, but wont take more than a day or so to set up the list here I believe. ie on rahulmookerjee.com. (which if that list was there NOW, you guys on the 0 Excuses list wouldn't be getting this).
And thats that.
Oh, "Deep Water", 2022 Prime release, its on Prime, probably the only reason I'm even considering it. Hehe. (or was)
The words "happy anniversary" sprang to mind - as soon as I noticed the date, and it "struck me" - it didnt when I woke up, though I've been having very interesting dreams all night (which I often do, so ...).
I didnt say it, of course.
But I thought ... DAMN!
As I subtract 2008 from 2022, I get 14 if my Math is right.
Damn, I've been married that long??
For a guy who famously swore up and down until the age of 26 or so he'd NEVER, repeat, NEVER get married, for a guy whose been with more girls that he cares to count - interesting indeed!
Of course, there were happy times - not so happy times - and right now, well, we all know the status.
But still, even if a lot of those 14 years were "married years" because the wife wouldn't divorce or whatever ... its still something to me at least. Hehe.
I'd say Happy Anniversary to myself - but I dont want to. I dont quite feel it. Hehe.
The last time I told the ole wife, she replied with "I want my gift", so that put paid to "romance". So much for women being the so called romantic sex. Hehe.
I keep explaining these things to people, they just dont get it, or refuse to, and finally blurt out something about "keeping the peace so I do it" (which to me is pathetic, but hey, to each his own, if thats how you want to live your life, certainly no complaints from my end. Hehe).
'Twas the day yours truly got hitched.
A couple of weeks later we'd do it formally, and that would set off events that would last till 2009, go to the Delhi High Court, eat up a chunk of savings, create a lot of unnecessary drama, unresolved till this date, and so forth.
Maybe I should have listened to the parents who told my wife to "wait" (they knew i wouldn't. Hehe)
Come to think of it?
Maybe I should NOT.
I'm glad I didnt, and followed my heart as usual, I learned a hell of a lot.
We all make mistakes, key thing is to learn and MOVE ON from those mistakes - most people dont do either of the two, and keep complaining about and wallowing in the mistakes like a pig in quick sand , or a Father Walrus or something...
Uncle Percie? Hehe.
Anyway, Percie was a great guy, I aint going to bring him into this, but he was of the same breed of men mentioned above, "keep the wife happy and thats all that matters", and again, I've never quite understood men who want to live like that but "whateva" ...
Anyway, 14 years is a long damn time.
So is 10 years, I'd say. Or 11.
I think, but am not sure, it was in 2011 when I first came out with Fast and Furious Fitness, a very well received book until this date.
I suppose I could do up an anniversary special on it today.
But I ain't in the anniversary mood. Hehe. I never am, so that would be "fallacious" of me to do so!
Instead, I'll just point you to the link and tell you this much - if you want an oldie, and goldie, and book for the ages, THAT is one you should grab - NOW.
It also shows me and the wife in "happier times" - and a fit, slim wife at that ... Hehe.
Anyway, I'm out.
0 Excuses Fitness came out in 2017. Five years plus and counting, and what a SMACKEROO it's laid down on many people, and rightfully so.
It's been 14 goddamn years already!
How time flies.
How I keep circling back to the same point like my fitness routine and "life always comes full circle" and so forth.
So I'll end this here while I'm off to ruminate.
You guys get the books above NOW. Hey, who knows, if all of US together make it a bumper sales day, I might actually get a smile out of the wife (not keeping fingers crossed tho, hehe).
Same thing for so called corny one liners - or movies choc a block full of them.
Before I dive into this one, think about it - what is the purpose of a GOOD JOKE?
To make you laugh like you never have before, or a lot.
And if slapstick jokes and/or bad jokes do it the BEST - which they often do?
Well they're the GOOD jokes then. Hehe.
What do I mean, well, Sly Stallone's movies are a perfect example of them!
Take for example the joke Rocky tells Adrian in Rocky I (or maybe II, I can't quite remember) - -
"Why do cows have bells?"
She doesnt know.
"Because the horns dont work".
Till this date it's never failed to arouse titters from my little one or anyone I tell this joke to, no matter how many times they've heard it - much like the movie itself, the joke is CLASSIC - because it's so so called "bad". Hehe.
Or, one liners...
The movie Cobra, for instance, where Sly offers a girl (the lead heroine) an apple.
She giggles and declines to take a bite out of the same apple he is.
"Dont like health food", he quips-cum-asks.
And that same theme is repeated throughout the movie where Sly's partner is shown to be the one gorging on gummy bears (whatever those are) and other "snacks" while Ole Sly does little other than drink coffee and munch on apples, not unlike what he did in real life at the time where apparently his diet was so pure that if he'd have a burger, his stomach would go into convulsions for days.
Not kidding either.
But those same one liners, similar jokes etc keep getting repeated throughout the movie...
An idiot wrote to me the other day about "like bad jokes, your emails keep selling, stop, stop, stop!"
He ain't the only one either.
But before we get to that fool who I did not even bother responding to, it aint just movies either.
"Drain the swamp".
Now, I'm pretty sure there's swamp on all sides of the political spectrum eh.
But that term sticks, people remember it, cheesy though it might sound - guess what - it WORKS.
It just flat out works.
The most natural things work best, and work all the time, period.
And they work the BEST you know when?
When you do as Claude Bristol says "repetition of the same chant, the same incantations, the same affirmations, leads to belief. Once that belief becomes a deep seated conviction, things begin to happen".
You could call it persistence and stickability no matter what as well.
If you've read Three Feet from Gold, you KNOW the agony felt by quitting something when you were within reach of GOLD.
(basically the story of a young man who got caught up in the California gold rush back in the day, showed up with his Uncle and borrowed money/equipment to mine the gold, struck gold almost instantly, but then the gold suddenly stopped.
They tried, tried, tried, couldn't find any more - and finally gave up - selling the machinery to an used junk man I believe, I can't quite remember.
Dude used to be an engineer, showed the maps the guys had given up to to another guy.
And lo, gold was found literally THREE Feet from where the guys gave up after trying for donkey's years, yet, one more try would have made them richer than Croseus, not the junk man).
There is a lesson to be learnt there (Darby learned it - later on in life he became a multi million dollar insurance salesman "I will never quit when a prospect says no!" became his motto - that was a solid, valuable learning experience indeed).
So to idiot who said what he said above, well, dude, I'd be a moron not to sell in every email.
I'd be a fool not to tell you to get the products NOW.
I'd be doing YOU a disservice if I were to do that, because I consider it my duty to pitch you products multiple times a day that will help YOU.
It's as simple as that, perfectly black and white.
And if after all the pitches you reply back with nonsense - the joke's on you my friend, and it aint either good or bad if you get my drift.
Similarly, if after all the noise people are making about it, and rightfully so, you have NOT yet gotten the 0 Excuses Fitness System - and if you have, if you ain't left a review?
Well, the joke's on YOU, pally, if thats the case.
And thats all I gotta say ...
PS - Those still on the fence - time waits for NOBODY - if you want it, and judging by the clicks etc, SO MANY of you do - then just freaking drop the ball and get it now, this "delay" and constant hemming and hawing mystifies me. If you're someone that takes donkey's years to decide on essential purchases, and fitness is as essential as BREATHING and life itself (the right fitness) - then you really shouldn't be on this list, period...
I'm learning new and progressive ideas daily, progressively most RETARDED buffoon created "ideas" too.
For instance, I had no idea you were supposed to use "three pronouns" when referring to women - apparently men too - apparently calling a man "him" and a woman her and saying there are only two genders is the most politically incorrect thing you can do these days.
A certain VP Harris clued me, the cluestill onto that BS.
And on Whatsapp as I view my daugher's examination schedule, it's called "evaluation".
Or "greater evaluation" or some bullshit.
I scanned the entire message from head to toe, not a mention of "exam" anywhere.
When I asked my daughter to prepare and told her how to, the answer was "well, we just need rehash what we already did in class".
In other words, exams are basically given in class as HW, the students hardly ever write it down so it comes home to Whatsapp so they can stay glued on even more to their damned devices - Moms apparently love it and allow their kids to become dumbphone addicted with the "everyone does it excuse" (not all moms though - I know several that limit their children's screen time, but you'd be a fool to expect something like that from my daughter's mother) ...
... and the school itself is closed half the time, every time it rains apparently the school is closed, every little thing, they find an excuse to shut down the school - and increase fees - which "everyone gladly pays" ...
And so continues the clown circle.
It ain't just in India either, this politically correct madness has swept the world.
It ain't just my daughter's school either, I suspect they're all like that.
And I know no-one bothers to say anything about it, people like me that do are the idiots for saying it.
To me, I'd rather be old school as I always AM.
Always will be, regardless of how much I make or dont, how much I sell or dont ...
And thats that from me.
Ps - And thats how my products are structured too. And thats one prime reason they get RESULTS. Have at - if you so CHOOSE.
And again, I ain't entirely sure how this came to mind, or maybe I do know ...
Flashback to school days, one of many, when I was struggling against a much beefier and heftier dude.
"I dont know where he gets his strength from!" I recall dude exclaiming after he had me pinned in a bear hug, or so he THOUGHT.
I had second thoughts!
I was skinny as skinny is when growing up ... and this wasn't a one off.
Yet, I remember when it came to the tough guys, the other skinny guys would look at me and say "at least you'd give a good account of yourself, not like me!"
Some even called me "well built".
I still remember putting the infamous Gorilla Grip on someone thrice my size and strength when my inner self once took over.
Little hellions we were, hehe. But those times were real!
Right down to the SLAPS and physical punishment, often brutal.
I still remember a comical instance where in 11th grade our cranky Math Teacher (curiously enough my little one has a cranky Math teacher too, Math and females, must be something, hehe) was giving a friend of mine some "tight slaps" for cutting class or "bunking" as they called it in India.
I did too, but I was being ignored in terms of the slapping.
At least until the very end where she suddenly remembered me and gave me one too. Hehe.
I remember Dheeraj, my friend telling me, I wonder why you got off easy!
Do you sleep with her, he joked.
Some others I would have though!
Thats something I hated though, women slapping men is OK, but they never did to other women and of course, God forbid a guy did the same to girls...
No-one talks about these things, but fair's fair, goose and gander and so forth.
I couldn't bothered to type the whole dang thing out. Hehe. It's so long!
No pun intended, guys.
Anyway, perhaps the most and best example of "having no quit" is the Stone cold Steve Austin - Bret Hart "say I quit" match - no holds barred until the other person says "I quit" - obviously scripted as the WWE is, but done damn professionally as they do things (Vince is a genius!) at Wrestlemania or something - do y'all remember that one?
Ole Steve "lost" the match.
But as he "passed out bleeding" he didnt lose.
He never said I quit.
And that famously turned him into the icon that he is now - that was the start of the steve Austin era, of the likes of which there will NEVER be again, period. He was - is - one of a kind! (though I hear he drinks more wine and vodka than beer NOW, hehe). (he could probably still crack open a few tho!).
Beaten, bloodied, a warrior till the end, thats something I've always had naturally.
Something I've worked to inculcate in me.
You might not be the biggest and best, most talented, and strongest.
But you can work to get there.
You can learn from those that have been there. And the school of hard knocks, and failure and getting your ass kicked and being man enough to accept it and learn from it is key, and how it's done. You learn more, curiously enough, from losing than you do from winning . . .
. . . even odder, or maybe not, that is how WINNING is done.
Anyway, you might not be the biggest and baddest.
But you CAN be the one that doesnt quit no matter what, that keeps going no matter what, that keeps going even when the odds are stacked - big time - against you.
All real winners in life and any other sphere know what I mean.
And my fitness systems build gumption like that from the inside out like no other.
To learn more, perhaps THIS is the best place to start.
I'll see y'all soon.
From an old sofa with spring worn out over time – which the daughter jumped on and made even worse, hehe, to a picture of it sitting in the middle of the garden in broad daylight, and no-one willing to take it away, and certain people SO eager for it to just “go, go, GO!” - that ………… well, the whole thing is just hilarious to me and I couldn’t help but chuckle – out loud.
Dont get me wrong, I did my best to get the damn thing carted away, I even offered to lift the motherfucker up – I mean, thats a good workout!
Id gladly load the damned thing onto whatever cart or truck can cart old furniture away, of course, I ain’t paying to throw trash away if you get my drift, insane as it might sound, all the guys I asked wanted money to take it away.
Including the garbage man. Ugh.
And I’m not even getting into the FIRST of it here.
Life in the subcontinent, life in Asia, life in general outside the West and perhaps Eastern Europe – SO different from what most people might envisage.
I can handle China and the Far East and the girls, dominating as they might be, hehe, just fine, but I do my best to stay FAR away from the subcontinent. Ugh.
Anyway ……. thats just me!
Now, I’ve been reading a lot on the Trumpinator as of late.
No, I don’t support taking classified records out of the White House or dumping them in the commode – LOL.
Neither have I ever supported or condoned what went down at the Capitol in early 2021. That sorta thing should NOT happen in a civilized country, period. The rule of law must prevail.
Of course, when the law itself is “bought” in that regard (so say some) and when half the nation is doing their best to defund law enforcement anyway while sending billions of dollars overseas for a lost, wrong and useless cause (one amongst many) ...what can one say.
But anyway, I read this piece recently – https://www.businessinsider.in/politics/world/news/trump-treated-my-family-like-disposable-pawns-and-tore-us-apart-says-daughter-of-convicted-jan-6-rioter/articleshow/93696208.cms.
And this article was posted on Yahoo! News and many others too (all sources of salacious gossip, peppered with language that makes you want to look – I do to snicker).
Here is what stood out to me -
"The former President Trump is not entirely responsible for my father's actions that day on January 6. However, in my opinion, I believe he used orchestrated language that uses subliminal projection, leading up to and the day of, that in a real way bypasses his supporters' rational thought and appeals to their deeper emotions," she told Insider in a text.
Insider changed to Yahoo! News in their version of the article.
Now, when I Read this I had to write about it.
First off, I don’t know if the Trumpinator ever actually urged his supporters to invade the Capitol, I don’t believe he did, I just believed he said “fight” for your rights (that was the gist).
I believe personally it was Trump being Trump, and nothing more, and even Trump later told these guys to NOT enter the Capitol – I mean really, who would do something like that anyway??
Regardless of whatever grouses (and there are many) I have with Sleepy Joe and his pathetic, bumbling, useless, admin I Would NEVER think of doing something like that, as it adds to the problem.
No, civil war isn’t here as yet – despite what people are thinking and saying!
It will though if people keep acting like they are of late – globally.
Anyway, back to Trump, I don’t know if people realize it, but he’s a perfect example of natural marketing.
You either love him or hate him, but you can learn a hell of a lot from him, my friend.
His language may seem to be orchestrated.
It is anything but, I’ll tell you that, and any marketer worth his bloody cojones will as well.
The best selling and marketing is done naturally.
The best communication and most effective ones are doing when you paint pictures effectively inside the other person’s mind.
Such as what I spoke about most people looking like they could birth Saturn – or Jupiter, perhaps these days – really, take a walk around the block, grab some wood at a mall or wherever, and you’ll see what I mean. It’s pathetic, but nigh true…
And Trump’s just damn good at doing that.
And if someone follows through, well, it ain’t Trump that “made him do it”.
Trump just unleashed his inner beast is what he did, all marketers do that to an extent.
Again, I get it.
It’s different when a sitting US President says something!
But still, ultimately, for the Trumpinator, its always been about natural marketing.
And selling yourself, your products successfully … hey, all of that sounds a lot like a certain Rahul Mookerjee we all know. Hehe.
But anyway, marketing wise, life wise, there is a lot the average Shmoe can learn from Trump, even if you hate his very guts…
…. Same thing with me, my friend.
A lot of you hate my guts for selling products that cost a bit more than the average “put together over a weekend” nonsense selling for “dirt cheap” or whatever the cheapasses want.
A lot of you have to also grudgingly admit the results I’ve gotten over the years, the way I’ve done it, the “in the trenches” knowledge I have … well, all of that is priceless.
And what I’m saying about people becoming increasingly fatter, more slovenly, out of energy and so forth, chances are YOU reading this fall into the same category, friend.
Take action NOW.
Take back control of your LIFE NOW – and the first thing to do is take control of your FITNESS – and therefore your mind and body both.
Once you do that, the rest will start to fall into place.
I don’t know what pictures these words paint in your mind, my friend.
But what I said is all true …
And fitness wise, YOU can start to get into the best shape of your life now.
If you so choose, the 0 Excuses Fitness System is the one tool you need for the job.
That’ll do it for this one!
When I first heard it a month or so ago, I was nigh flabbergasted - from the wife.
But I chalked it down to usual womanly stuff and nothing more - the complaint was "because of your mother i.e her mother in law making me go to the mall" . . .
Now, apparently there was some "wife VS mother in law" fight as usual - dont EVEN get me started on that BS. Yours truly has never dealt with it, and I never will (which is why I'm uniformly "hated" in that regard, but that is fine, I refuse to be the cuck handling it all).
But today, as my wife said it again, it seems she "Really means it".
Now, no doubt a lot of this was because at that point she didnt want to go or something - mental things matter a lot.
But lets focus on the fitness aspect of it.
"Honey, how the fuck can walking in the mall make you tired" was what I asked, and left out the expletive. Hehe.
I mean really, walking at a slow pace, A/C malls, escalators everywhere...
I dont get it!
But apparently it does, "walking into different shops" makes you tired for days - - and apparently "is exhausting".
To me I cannot fathom the idea of something like that being exhausting.
Truly when people - either male or female - have nothing to worry about, they FIND reasons to worry, and create reasons in their own MIND. Hehe. (and NO, this does NOT just apply to the people in this email - it applies to everyone, male, female, everyone).
But really, what my wife is saying is par for the course these days.
The other day, I was waiting at the bus stop and I remember looking at people passing by "idly" - and I was looking at their midsections.
I waited for half an hour. There was not ONE fit person I saw, most were grossly OBESE.
People are just getting lazier by the day, and as I say this I remember a dude who looked like he was ready to birth Saturn - or maybe even Jupiter - literally, he was THAT fat.
I wonder how those people WALK in the first place, and of course, if you ask them to move more than a few steps, the complaints start.
Perhaps that, my friend, is the one reason EVERYONE needs to invest in a decent home based fitness system which does away with all excuses - weather wise, equipment wise, and so forth.
Of course, those that want to complain will find a way to do so.
But fitness, my friend, is evergreen.
It - like sex, hehe - never goes away, and both build upon each other.
I dont know why I said that, perhaps the other business comes to mind!
To invest in a quality fitness system that lets you start at YOUR level, yes, 0 Excuses Fitness is for beached whales as well as fitness freaks and Ironmen and women and everyone in between ... go HERE.
And the other book I'd really recommend in this regard for everyday fitness - Animal Kingdom Workouts.
Just move around for a few minutes a day to begin with.
You'll be amazed at the GAINS you make.
There endeth this one - on the "new look site" (I know, it dont look THAT different) ... Hehe.
If you dont see emails from August, for some reason the system put them in a different order, but they can be accessed via "latest posts" at the bottom.
And thats that.
PS- More huge changess in the offing. STAY TUNED!
The perfect balance between suppleness and strength - and why Fast and Furious Fitness will turn YOU into a human leopard - the paradigm of the above!Written by Rahul Mookerjee
I got the following comment on Fast and Furious Fitness, the Collector's Edition from a customer John Walker -
This book is the perfect manual on how to get into serious condition with the absolute minimum of equipment, all that you require is something to hang from to perform Pull-Ups and a couple of bars, boxes or chairs to perform Dips and you're all set. If you're looking for a minimalist approach to getting strong and supple you cannot do better than this book. Get the book, put it to use and it will turn you into a Leopard, why a Leopard? Because a Leopard is the perfect balance between suppleness and strength. The book delivers on many fronts but it is it's no nonsense "spartan attitude" that makes it stand out from the crowd, I believe that this book will transform anyone with the smarts to put the information in it to good use. If you want to be a beast you have to train like an animal, this book is all you really need to transform yourself into the absolute best version of you, you can possibly be. Your new strong and supple body awaits, the only thing you have to do is buy the book, apply the information therein and you'll never look back. I highly recommend this book, outstanding, bravo Rahul bravo. John Walker.
And he's absolutely right. (and covers the "why" part very well). (in short, but thats how a review should be, concise, yet get the point across).
I could end this email right here and tell you to get the book now, but first ...
I could keep it BRIEF and "short and sweet" like a review John once posted on the great little book "Profound 70% Gorilla 30% Human Handstands" (level #3 in the handstand progression and the very all important BRIDGE to free standing handstands, book #4 "yet to be written") ...
"This book is short and sweet, and so will be the review. Massive upper body strength and power. Another excellent book from the bodyweight fitness guru".
I might have got a word or two wrong, or extra, but that is the gist of it. Amazon it for more... I couldn't be bothered to do so right now.
Anyway, I just saw a brief 1:33 second clip from the Animal Kingdom - three cheetahs - and a leopard takes them - all of a sudden, out of the blue!
The clip is short, sweet, brutal and gets the job done.
The three cheetahs, all taller at the shoulder - amble along to prey, they prepare to eat it, when OUT OF NOWHERE - a massive leopard, shorter, but far bulkier than any of the cheetahs shows up!
He doesnt just show up.
He bare bones BULLIES the cheetahs off the prey - swaggering machismo is what it reminds me of.
There was a scene in Sly Stallone's Cobra once where Sly literally walks up to a guy, cool in aviators and all, and rips the front of his shirt off
Believe me, if that doesn't scream machisom, nothing does!
Remember the guy I once put a Gorilla Grip on ?
His friend did the same to me (just pocket though) - in eigth grade.
Trust me, I know a thing or two about being bullied, and then giving it back to them x 100!
in true blue MACHO MAN as I'm called style.
So does the leopard, mi amigo.
The ONLY other animal I've seen literally BOUND out like that out of nowhere and use the element of surprise so well is the tiger - that has been known to hunt leopards too.
For it's size though, the leopard - and the JAGUAR, another highly underrrated beast - sure do pack a punch!
It's just bold, swaggering machismo in the Animal Kingdom.
Kill or be killed.
Eat or be eaten.
WIN OR DIE!!!!!!!!!!!! (trying)
I keep asking people which side they're on, they say I'm a fool. Not anymore though ... Hehe.
Anyway, all reminds me of a Mike Tyson statement that Iron Mike recently made about "I'd beat any of the current heavyweights in my prime".
I'd say he'd KO the welter weights with one hand, and the heavy weights with another. Iron Mike was the REAL deal, still is, I STILL wouldn't bet on any current heavy weight going up against him (yeah, I'm an unabashed Tyson fan, but with damn good reason).
Reminds me of how people keep talking about Tyson's height, normal height, but that build - my word.
Certainly what sets him apart, with his peek a boo style he actually made his height an advantage as opposed to a disadvantage.
A real doer (who once kept, and slept with (as in the animals were on his bed, nothing else) massive Bengal Tigers no less!!).
I'd be wary of doing that myself. Heh. Then again, who knows, maybe not!
but all of this, my friend, leads up to the following - If you truly want to turn into a BEAST, the closest thing to a human beast?
Then get Fast and Furious Fitness NOW, you'll see yours truly "human leopard" in the book as well.
And the next level to that, I guess if you want to as a customer once said "join the ranks of the superhumans" - Animal Kingdom Workouts (if you want to truly become the closest thing a a human can to a TIGER!)
And dat BE dat.
PS - Bozo Schofield, him of the LGBEQINSYYYTTTTTTTTT crapola once sent me a trolly rubbish message about being "Rahul Tyson".
I can almost feel the Bozo's jaw crack, hehe.
Come to think of it, I think it done cracked in 2020 - felt good eh Glyn? More is coming - BOYO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
