The chant just gets louder, doesnt it?
Me, me, me ...
It's always all about the person saying it.
Never about what anyone else might think - or not - or never about how the person himself or herself treats other people, and always about "this is ME! He (or she) better put up with it - or else!"
As of late, this line seems to have become even popular than the line above -
"I dont run after people!"
"Whoever comes into my life comes, whoever goes, goes. It's up to them, never ME!"
Which is fine until a point, but people have been taking it to giddy limits over the past few years, and it's only increasing NOW (when it should be the opposite).
Look, it's fine to put yourself first. You SHOULD.
Yet, there is a line, often a fine line between narcissism which can spiral into an extreme version before you know it - and putting yourself first.
There is an even finer liner beyond NOT letting other people be a drain on your time and energy - and not letting yourself be controlled or taken advantage of - and doing the same thing to others, or worse.
There is a fine line again, between wanting RESPECT - for you - but being disrespectful to others.
A pet peeve of mine is when people dont get back to me.
It's only gotten WORSE over the years, and it aint just me either.
You send someone a message - they dont reply.
You send them emails - repeated emaijls - they dont reply.
When they finally find time in their so called busy schedules (busy watching inane soap operas all day or the male equivalent) - they'll reply with annoyance at your asking mildy "well, why didnt you get back to me".
Apparently getting back is about "me" and "when I feel like it!" and "I'll get back when I can!" and "if you dont like it, get out of my life!"
Sad it's come to this.
Whatever happened to basic human decency?
This afternoon, I was wondering what happened to a person whose always been fairly good about getting to me via email.
She's disappointed me - as I eventually figured she would - i.e. the same "no response", and no, in case you're thinking, ain't nothing romantic or near about involved here.
If I ask her, I'm sure she'll get back with "I'm sorry". Or, "I need time off from the world!"
OR, her latest and most inane excuse "I blocked my email accidentally!"
When the truth is, she's frustrated about something, and just doesnt want to reply - but Jay Roy, a guy I once worked with (a conman who was from Cameroon and pretended to be from the US, though anyone with half a brain could see right thru it, but then again, not many people at that workplace had anything resembling a brain to begin with so they thought anyone who wore their hat backwards and used the term "whatsup boy" in a made up voice was a rap star or some rubbish) had the following to say about this.
Send them a red packet, see how quickly they reply!
I.e. send them China's version of digital money. Hehe.
But really, it's pathetic.
Like I said, one thing to stand up for yourself, be yourself, and NOT letting others dictate to you how to live life.
Quite another to lose all sense and sight and even smell, if there is a such thing of human DECENCY ..
Rise up, folks, rise up, I grow weary of saying it.
ah, I get it.
No-one cares anymore, right ?
Well, you SHOULD care.
Anyway, thats that from me.
Remember, folks, the BEST damn fitness system is waiting for you - a system that alongwith the stellar and ONE OF ITS KIND videos (nothign like this out there) will get you in the best shape of your life - in your living room.
No, it aint just pushups and squats, no, you cannot Google it and find it, no I dont provide "teasers" except on You Tube (i can just see people typing it in Google for "freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" hehe) and so forth.
Did I answer all your objections as yet?
I thought so.
If not, let me know what I missed, and it shall be covered.
And, that said, now the "call to action" for YOU - right HERE.
PS - Another pet peeve of mine is idiots trying to constantly draw me into conversation with the "how are things" line - when they have no real intention of asking me how things are - its always to talk about them.
I've lost track of the number of people who equate friendship with "shoulder to cry upon", but "never reciprocate".
Sad it has come to this, aint it.
I knew there was a reason behind the ravens crowing, the birds chirping ... all of what I sent you earlier today.
But let me give you yet another real life example of NEVER quitting, my friend.
It may or may not seem significant, but it's TRUE.
"As long as you keep fighting, never give up, the resources you need will be MADE available to you".
This line keeps playing out in my head -has over the years, and only intensfies as I grow older!
And its always worked out that way.
Houdini with nine lives didnt become houdini because he wanted to. He became because he trusted, and then DID.
And told the world LATER.
This here email is being written BEFORE the fact happens. And it will be sent out "later" ...
a while back, my bank - one of the accounts I have, this bank headquartered in India, debited my account for a large amount - for no apparent reason.
I checked, and the huge amount they took out was apparently for "ATM declined transactions".
Now, admittedly, I had used my card (the debit card the bank gave me) on Amazon for certain declined transactions, admittedly they tried to charge my card quite a few times, like 20 or so - and there were fees associated (until I noticed my error, and changed it to the credit card which then got charged fine) ... but nowhere near the amount they actually debited, for about 10 x times that.
Card issues are nothing new for me, hehe. My customers are aware of this too! Hehe.
All works normally, but as always, I have backup upon backupon upon backup ... "just in case".
So I complained to the bank.
Their customer service - you got it - useless.
I complained for three weeks or so, and simultaneously sent angry emails (though very logical) to their country head, regiional head, and their CEO too.
Nothing happened, so it seemed.
I went to the Reserve Bank of India - regulatory body over them.
My complaint got turned down twice for some wierd reason.
"You didnt give them enough time to reply".
I replied back that I did with proof, but for some reason, nothing doing (which is strange - the RBI is pretty good about resolving this sort of thing if you explain what happened to them PROPERLY).
Then, I went to consumer court - or the "online equivalent".
I raised a complaint there, and some other places, nothing really happened.
I complained again.
After a month and a half, I "cut my losses", and forgot about the whole mess.
But, things were happening behind the scenes, much like many things happen before that seed SPROUTS into a PLANT - and then a tree!
That thought kept coming to my mind for some odd reason over the past couple of months.
A couple of days ago, I checked that account which I pretty much stopped using since that happened, and there was a credit - a tiny one.
I asked them what it was.
IT was related to the issue above.
I forgot about it after that.
Then out of the blue, FINALLY - two plus months later - a RESPONSE - from a real person came!
And they sent me a list of transactions for which charges were being applied, which I had been asking for for ages.
Of course, it was just those 20 declined transactions.
So, I told them that i.e. just 20, fine, charge for those, but not the amount you debited!
This morning, I got an odd - or maybe not - answer after doing handstand pushups.
We are arranging the approval for whole amount reversal as a service gesture."
Along with that, another email showed up from support (tech support) on another organization as I wrote this (unrelated to this, but I didnt think they would be replying anytime soon either).
Now, this isnt' about money.
It isn't about what yours truly got - or will get - or whatever.
IT's about the value of persistence.
And never giving up, and never telling the world before it's DONE - when you have PROOF, as opposed to crowing about it BEFORE (it usually never happens then!) - and most of all ...
Knowing it's NEVER over till it IS.
And that, friend, is that!
PS - This email will be sent once I receive the final credit BACK to my account. Tell the world what you're going to do, but show it first!
Further Volumes outcoming soon too. (oh, and 16 Inspirational Fitness Recollections as well).
Rags to riches stories, and I have many of them, dont I?
Few though to me strike as POWERFULLY Home as the great David Goggins (mentioned on the sales page for Pull-ups - from STUD to Super STUD for a damn good reason - US Navy Seal, Ranger, and more - they are truly studs at pull-ups! (and more)) ...
... and the great Herschel Walker, mentioned on the sales page for the 0 Excuses Fitnes System, and the book itself.
I mention other greats in the book, not the least of whom is the Great Gama, who even the Giant Khali in the WWE would probably acknowledge, as my friend from the Marines once did.
"He was truly the best!"
That he was, my friend - he sure was!
And Walker to me isn't far behind in many of his accomplishments.
This morning, I read email coming from Walker (apparently?) in my inbox with regard to his upcoming Senate bid.
I had not signed up for it , but I'm assuming the Trump emails I get on a a regular basis - hes working with Trump, so I assume it's something to do with that.
Immediately though, the name Walker stood out to me!
Trump has made the RIGHT CHOICE for one - I knew this before, but reading what Walker wrote in some of his emails, something "moved".
Herschel Walker, the little overweight kid growing up in Georgia, who knows what REAL racism is about - being bullied relentlessly - having to develop multiple personalities to deal with them or be "GONE!" - his relentless bodyweight training routine ... and more ...
ALL OF IT STRUCK SO POWERFULLY HOME FOR ME!
It could have been me saying some of the words he is ...
Anyway, I've focused on his fitness accomplishemnts on the page above - I've no idea if he did the squats the Gama and a lot of YOU guys do - but he DID do a ton of pushups, pull-ups, and other squats that got him into great shape not to mention - HILL SPRINTS, the Mecca and Medina of leg training!
Walker was also HUGE on training the way I teach you in the upcoming Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness - I dont know if he's ever used Indian clubs for one, but he would absolutely LOVE THEM!
He DID however, like Walter Peyron train with tyres around his waist, running uphill...
My daughter was asking me why people did that!
I told her why.
Anyway, it also brought to mind what an idiot Charles (the former friend) once ranted on about during his infamous rant about pull-ups and how my emails were useless.
Truly, a typical Tom Tom - much like the Chinese that dont know English teaching those that do - Charles who can't even hang on to the pull-up bar bitching about pull-ups because he is a phat phock, and LAZY and not willing to do what it TAKES and learn from the best i.e. me to DROP the weight.
"I dont know how you work out for hours in that blazing heat, Rahul!"
Sometimes, Charles, HARD WORK, GUMPTION, TOUGHING IT OUT - BEING A MAN - is what it TAKES, BRO!
Walker did it too ...
You won't find Walker saying crap like "my girlfriend is smaller than me so she can easily outdo me on hills".
Sheer and utter idiocy - I've mentioned this before.
Fat is fat, muscle is muscle.
Force = mass x accleration.
And the last comes from MUSCLE, not lard.
And if the mass is mostly muscle, then there is no reason big guys can't be agile and FAST at the same time.
Just ask the Grizzly bear, Chuck!
I mentioned how Walker had it tough growing up, how Walker was the exact opposite of "easy gains".
Charles didnt agree.
"Muscle sticks to him like shit on a stick!"
It don't either, bro.
But why believe me? Why not read what Walker HIMSELF has written on it i.e. being an overweight kid constantly bullied and more?
In the Simple and Effective Diet, I give you an eating secret that will skyrocket your fitness gains and weight losss - UPWARDS!
Walker used this same technique too (no, I didn't get it from him. I knew about it instinctively years ago!)
And everything Walker says, right down to Trump not being racist despite what the Tom Toms claims, rings so damn true.
(Personally, I could give a crap less about racist idiots like you've seen with my talks about Glyn Brummie "in ass" Bozo for one - one of the nastiest and most horrible people you'll ever meet, who still clings to the "I have black friends, so I'm not racist" nonsense while he spends the entirety of his day pestering womn from Mom's basement and creating nasty racist mems which of course, his friend Chuck seems to "enable" to a degree ... but Walker knows a thing or two about racism!! Growing up in the Deep South, poor, definitely underprivelegd back then - now that is a guy thats seen it all.
I do too - and have seen and experienced it too - but like I said, I could give a crap less (believe me, I could rant all day about the stories I have in that regard, but I ain't - I dont give a crap, and I'm better than that, curiosuly enough, Glyn Bozo once in his saner moments said exactly that about me and the Tom Tom's i.e. "you're better than that!")- and never really have (like the ole Trumpinator, hehe).
Ultimately, it seems Herschel did that too.
As he says in a book, his parents at least taught him well - I for one was never told what he was, that "it doesnt matter what your skin color is, and where you're from, you can ACHIEVE!"
For a very long time, I was brainwashed into the "they have it better because they're white" thinking. Although I never believed it (hence the "you're a white man trapped in Indian body!" idiocy I get - no I ain't either - I am ME, and that is THAT!)
I've been saying it for ages, of course.
Trump, my friend is a pragmatic BUSINESSMAN and the least racist person you'll ever meet. Trust me, you can feel these things.
And he's done more for the black and colored community than th eTom Toms and Bidens "super predator" types ever have ...
Anyway, this ain't about politics, I'll be honest.
But I remembered Charles, who first claimed to be a wrestler and therefore big (when he is plain FAT - nowehere near as fat as the Bozo though) - and then when called out on it, "football's my jam" "I didnt really do wrestling" - though its unclear if Charles ever played football to begin with to be honest - and if he wasn't a wrestler, why SAY he was??...
And so, I had to write this.
Anyhow, thats that for me.
I dont know, Walker to me is one of the greats, a real man, and I'll never stop saying it.
PS - Is it a conincidence that one day I was thinking "what if Herschel Walker actually saw 0 Excuses Fitness" - and bingo, I got an email from one of my greatest and best customers, another real life hero from the UK John Walker ...
Y'all know I dont believe in coincindences!!
PPS - Lest you think this is about politics, it ain't either.
Like I've often said, before Trump (and coincidentally, the plague from China) - I didnt care two hoots less about poltics beyond thebasics, and I still don't for the most part (other than keeping up with what Brazilian PM Jair Bolsonaro is up to ; I love that guy!!) ...
But Walker, Bolsonaro, these guys, especially Walker, I can look into their eyes and it tells a story, a very powerful, moving story, same thing with David Goggins... (he's even got the brown eyes like I do, hehe).
(it's often been a bone of contention in my home i.e why I dont "look" like the others, and the brown eyes and so forth. Hehe).
I've been doing something I haven't done as of late, but normally do all the time (very regularly, I should say).
That being, my version of spring cleaning.
This afternoon, I went through my wechat employment groups - by far the most professional and sane of any of the other groups out there in terms of China based employment.
Believe me, that is only true because I have rules and ANYONE that is guilty of not following them gets removed. No exceptions, no reasons, no ifs, buts, maybe's. Thats just how it is. People dont like that sort of thing - a lot of people don't, but so be it. The rules make the groups the stellar - and most importantly, uber professional - like me - groups out there - no typical Tom Tom's and ESL allowed (there is that sort there yes, but they dont act up near as much as they do on other sites).
And as I did a mass cull today of many members who were little more than a bump on a log for YEARS - I got messages flooding in furiously.
"Why you remove me"
These same people wouldn't answer anything when posed to them. They'd never participate in the group - but they'd sit there like a massive swamp or something, energy drain, bump on a log, whatever you call it - and, well, for lack of a better term, they would DO NOTHING!
If there is one thing I cannot stand more than anything else it is apathy and inaction, and one of my own rules (lifewise) is to not just avoid, but actively RUN away and put as much distance between me and this sort as humanly possible.
I dont care if people dont agree with me - or call me stupid for my life and fitness philosophies - or jump up and down wanting to complain about price of books - so long as theyre not trolls (like Bozo) - I could care two hoots less.
And they are at least doing - something.
It's the do nothings, Typical Tom Tom's and wackos that take up space in groups, get togethers, email lists and such I cannot stand.
Speaking of the last, I ain't done a cull on this list as yet (for a while).
But that time is coming, my friend.
ANd I wont ask you before doing it either.
I'm a gut feeling sorta dude, and if I feel you're sitting there being nothing but a silent bump on a log, well, then thats fine - your right to live your life that way, but I'd rather not have that sort on my list.
(and, that type is welcome to keep reading what I have "for free" on the site - but the list costs money to operate, mail to, and keep active, and I consider the list to be the "creme la de creme" list of the fitness world anyway, highly curated, high quality ... so, I'd rather keep it that way).
I mean really, and again.
INACTION - APATHY - and an unwillingness to CHANGE - is what I cannot stand MORE than anything else - everything!
The "I dont care" crowd.
The "I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo busy sort" when all they're busy with is either (if it's Schofield, wanking off in front of porn and other rubbish) or precisely "squat all" - vast majority of this sort have all the time in the world for social media, inane political discussions, sharing silly memes and tweets, trolling, anything but REAL Conversation or ACTION .. typical Tom Toms to be precise.
And of course, people that claim to "want to talk to me" yet never reply to anything I say beyond the cursory obvious.
It just annoys the living Bejesus out of me.
Some of the last sort might be buyers.
But I do all I can to avoid them anyway, because I don't want Tom Tom's getting 0 Excuses Fitness for one, and then letting it "sit there and do nothing with it" and later complain "it didnt work" when the fact is YOU didnt work to make it work, so of course it didn't...
Alright, thats the heads up for now.
And make sure to grab 0 Excuses FItness at the link above - and get started now!
The Trumpinator is nothing if not two things, my friends.
Amongst more, feisty - till the end - and PERSISTENT!
He's also unique in that (and this is yet another trait yours truly shares with him) that he wears no rings, amulets, or other nonsense a lot of people believe in "to ward off evil" and such.
To be honest, (and I've wrriten about the beads, chains, amulets nonsense before haven't I?) - I dont think the Trumpinator even thinks of those things - much like I don't.
Not in either one of our spheres of thinking.
And being it's usually women that alert us to "jade bracelets", or "metal rings from temples" (my wife once gave me one of those which of course a certain Ashley loved ...) or other nonsense, and in our cases?
Women dont tell us what to do. HEhe.
And they get irritated when we talk about the subconscious and pooh pooh ther est of it.
Trust me, it's all about the subconscious mind my friend.
You can listen to all the hip hop motivational crap talk out there.
You can wear all the jade bracelets, amulets etc - but until and unless your subconscious is in FLOW with and conjunction with your real goals and desires, ultimately all will come to naught and often does.
That dont mean I dont like jewelry!
I'm more the guy with gold rings and chains and (a silver one) chains around my neck, etc. Hehe.
Which I sometimes forget to take off while boxing!
Marc pointed that out once "what is that? A cock ring for your 10 inch cock?" (LOL) so succintly once before getting into the ring!
The Trumpinator has been sending out emails galore with "400% impact" and such - and to be honest, I'm not sure if he's getting much traction at all.
He's raked in some cash with them emails yes, but he's had to refund a lot too, and his mounting bills etc ... I'm not sure how he'll end up in terms of the court cases against him either.
Likely he'll manage to "escape unscathed", but it'll be battle, both emotionally and legally - not to mention financially.
At least, so says my gut. And it's never been wrong...
Anyway, his emails promise "someone will match" whatever you donate to him or give him or whatever "by 400%".
Now, dont ask me how this works. LOL.
It ain't a marketing ploy I've used, and I wouldnt use it either ... unless it's something yours truly could match!
Such as my offer in the past of if you buy a product, I'll give you cash in your wallet (site wallet) for your NEXT purchase - or a discount code of equivalent value.
But even that, I dont do too often.
Anyway, the ole Trumpinator is doing "color commentary" from what I hear for the Holyfield - Belfort match, and if memory serves me right, it's going on NOW?
Not sure, but I think it is ... Oh. No. It's on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, which is TOMORROW...
But anyway, all sorts of offers are floating about on that one.
And apparently Trump claims "he wants to box Biden" and will beat him hands down!
This sort of thing is nothing new, of course.
Way back in the day Big Matt the Bat (great Aussie batter, one of my favorites) issued an open challenge to a young and lanky and not beefy at all Ishant Sharma who literally turned Hayden into a walking wicket.
"I'd like to meet him in the ring!" lashed out Hayden.
He was criticized for the comment, I dont know why.
And now, Trump and Biden?
Ill take a raincheck, hehe.
Battle of the geriatrics is what it would boil down to, and I dont think either man would be doing it for more than a few seconds!
Of course, according to Trump, and he might be right - LOL - Biden wouldn't last those seconds either.
But really, the good ole Trumpinator boxing, I'd perhaps pay to see THAT alone.
And he knows it too, hence his comments!
Nothing if not smart is Donald Trump...
Anyway, thats the news from here.
And to get on one of the primary exercises and routines ALL Boxers do - ALL over the world - you'll want to start with Jump Rope Mania - FEW, if any, courses will prepare you better for the conditioning aspect in the RING!
PS - And pushups, of course!
The BEDROCK of all training programs, and of course, boxing training regimens.
Pushup Central - YOUR TICKET!
I'll never forget a conversation - an utterly one sided one I once had with my Mom in terms of "what I do".
(which, until this date, she still doesnt know about what I do here - and the other sites, and if she does, she does a damn fine job of pretending "its the crappiest thing ever" without even letting it show. Hehe).
But along with all the other battles with wife, family etc, I once mentioned the tale of Ford's struggles.
I've noticed one thing, my friend.
The Typical Tom Tom's could care less about stories, facts, and other folks's experiences.
Tell them a story, and they ho hum it away - or worse.
Even if it's one of the most inspiring stories ever.
These are also the very people who believe "grit" and "working like a donkey" all your life is what brings results and riches down the line.
Dont get me wrong.
PErsistence at anything is key.
But it's these people that completely overlook the mental, my friend, and the MENTAL is what is most required in order for you to succeed - at anything.
Just trust me on this one, friend.
I've told you why a bazillion times before!
But anyway, I started talking about Ford, the numerous failures, bankruptcies, and of course, was rudely cut short.
"Don't talk to me about those people!"
What was left unsaid - "they're special with some much ambition" - you're not.
(curiously this same standard isn't applied to other Bozos, apparently they have all the ambition in the world to wank off and do squat all - it's only the DOERS that get targeted.
Bezos is so spot on in terms of "if you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to be willing to be misunderstood for long periods of time.
Note the adjective he used. He wasn't referring to quitters!)
My Dad did once say quietly to me over email the following.
You have this ambition of making a lot of money, which is not a bad thing.
That was at the age of 23. ...
(then I had Charles the former friend once tell me, just when he was STARTING to make money at the business he quite despite me telling him so many times NOT TO - "I dont want to be Rockefeller!")
Thats fine if someone doesnt want to be rich.
But why the heck would someone NOT want to be rich is what boggles the mind (to me at least) and confounds me.
it's this thinking about money that keeps it AWAY from the reach of the average Shmoe, if you were to ask me.
But anyway, the typical Tom Tom's make typically stupid remarks.
Attempting to counter stupidity with either logic or intituion is pointless.
It ain't gonna happen.
As a customer rightly told me.
"That brick wall will likely make more sense, Rahul!"
But there are plenty of brick walls globally, I suppose this is why I write this now.
Just why the heck can YOU not mention anyone you like - and aspire - and then DO - to be one of the GREATS? Who the hell is anyone else to tell YOU how to live your life and not be the BEST at what you DO - WANT TO DO - really want to do?
The best at your passion?
Jeff Bezos once spoke about "you dont choose your passions. your passions chase YOU!"
Actually, he used "choose" both times.
But you can use chase too!
If it's a passion, something that you MUST have, you'll get it.
It'll chase you.
ultimately, if you really want it, (and then it's a passion) - you'll GET IT.
Note I said ultimately, not "tomorrow" or next year.
Which that line above, of course is what puts most people off, including and especially Bozo like Typical Tom Tom's.
But anyway, Tom Tom's aside...
Why the heck can YOU , my friend, not become as good as fingertip pushups as I am - or better me?
Give me one good reason, and I'll eat my hat.
Why can YOU not become a Battletank Shoulders machine - even leaner and meaner than ME?
Why can YOU not bang out Hindu squats daily in high reps?
Why can YOU not achieve anything you want, at the highest levels?
Just some questions for you to ponder!
And if you can give me a conclusive answer to this - hell, if there is a "paralympic" Olympics - where is YOUR excuse?
Sometimes, really, the toughest battles are not just given to those who can take it.
They're given to those that ultimately MAKE IT.
That, Rahul Mookerjee is willing to sign his name to, and he doesnt do that too often, hehe.
He did it for the Fast and Furious Fitness - Collector's Edition series though, again for damn good reason.
This is going to be a short one after all the "long ones" i sent.
But, those of you on this list will recall one email I sent - that being, the DOERS section on the website I was talking about last week, or perhaps the one before that.
It done slipped through the cracks, to be honest.
But ... it's still an idea in progress!
I recently received a package from Amazon, forwarded to me, and i saw a "seller's story" on there.
Now, yours truly isnt selling mostly on Amazon, and my main sales comes from my OWN sites. That, I honestly believe is the best way.
But, I love Amazon.
Even if I didnt, you can't ignore Amazon, so I DO sell on there, but this is not about that.
This is about ...
And remember, I gave YOU a chance to be featured on the doers page - with YOUR picture - your story - and even a $50 coupon to use on the site - with YOUR story!
Fitness wise, life wise, this is YOUR CHANCE, my friend - to be featured on our site - forever.
Remember, the page will STAY up once it goes up.
And its YOUR chance to tell your story to the world - to show you're a DOER - and far more
Costs you nothing, of course, except a few minutes of your time to write something about yourself and the RESULTS YOU HAVE GOTTEN from my programs!
And, a picture ...
And thats it, friend.
Think about it.
And get back to me on it, and we'll go from there!
PS - Popko Schofields not wanted, hehe. For those sorts, I've got a special OUTED! page on the other site where all your dirty desires and secret nonsense will be outed.
Yes, believe it or not, some people fetishize being blackmailed - their version of it when it comes to the other site is "put it out there" and the thrill of their significant other "maybe seeing it or not" ...
Hey, so longas it's SSC and gets them off, I guess!
Is it any surprise - coincidence (which I dont believe in) - that long before I even know David Goggins wrote anything let alone great books, I put his picture on the sales page for "Pull-ups -from STUD - SUPER STUD within WEEKS!" ?
I dont think so.
All I knew about dude was he was a super stud at pullups, and a fomer Seal. I didnt even know he went to Ranger school, or his background or any of it!
I put him there for a REASON.
And today, as I write to you about SEAL training - or the BUDS - or even the Marines, and their own crucible, almost as tough minus the salt water, hehe ... I gotta tell you, elite forces KNOW about success, and preparing you for it.
Listen, when you go through BUDS, you think of anything but success - you just ... you're not in a position to sit and think for one!
EVERY muscle andt endon in your body aches like a motha, you just can't think straight - most people.
They push you above and beyond.
They understand that when you say "quit" - you're only about at 60 percent of your true quittting capacity - or DOING capacity. It works both ways!
And as for the candidate?
Physical aside, no sleep aside, those that succeed will have this one thought in their mind, and nothing else.
I MUST DO IT!
NO OTHER CHOICE!
I SET OUT TO DO IT, AND DAMN, I'm GONNA DO IT OR ELSE!
I won't even say "die trying" ...
Remember, my friend, one thing.
They dont have anything at that point.
Except their training. No medals as yet, no commendations, none of it!
CErtainly not the Trident either.
Even after that, the journey only STARTS.
So to put yourself through all that in the first place you gotta be special.
They don't choose you until and unless you are, period.
Then they filter you out!
The MARCOS in India, and special forces globally do the same thing.
In fact, in many regards the MARCOS (the INdia equivalent of SEALS - truly elite they are!) are an even better "trained" (physically force than the Seals - their training is even more brutal. And the SEALS that have trained with them will tell you this!
Wel,l not quite that, but remember, thats ONE PART OF ALL THEY DO!
Mental + Physical makes the elite warrior, friend.
So it is with YOU.
It's that DESIRE that Seals and elite forces test the most.
Do you have what it takes - i.e. do you really, really want it?
IF you do, you'll know, trust me.
And as I invite you to join ME on this wondrous journey, friend, true, it might be my goal. But that goal includes several things for you too!
I'm going to keep it all under wraps for now, but remember, an integral part of my goal that I'm not goin got budge from this is this.
That last copy simply MUST GO NOW.
I know, myf riend.
You've heard it four times already.
So make that the fifth.
I dont care, I dont care what it takes, how it happens, or what not.
But that copy MUST BE GONE before several other things fall into place. I wouldn't say it would "jettison" the goal, but happen it must, an dso it shall.
Only question remaining, who will get it FIRST.
Because trust me, that Classic Edition - no more reprints!
Rush now, friend.
And I'll be waiting with that pen, hehe.
That might not sound nice, eh.
But if you truly want to succeed at that one thing ... if you truly have a REAL GOAL - or ever had - and it never took off, or you failed, if you truly WANT to do something so bad you can feel it...
If you could - let me ask you this.
Did you leave yourself with any choice BUT NOT TO DO IT - want it SO BAD - that you got it eventually?
If you failed, chances are excellent that along with not dreaming right and NOT being persistent enough - you "had another choice" that seemed easier at the time.
This, my friend, is a lesson often presented to me in many ways - that I've learned, and as I wrote to you earlier about, will never make the mistake of making again.
I was giving so many chances, but lo, I didnt recognize the message in them!
I made all my luck, yes.
But, WHY did I do that?
I never recognized it until around August or so of last year when things became "final" - true, I experienced some temporary difficulty even then in terms of starting out towards the goal I speak so much of here.
Hiccups, and so forth.
All esaed and smoothed out eventually.
But also doing what one was meant to.
And, although I have other choice, to achieve this goal - until I do - I'm not leaving myself with many choices at all, and those that are, I'm not working upon (and there are many, hehe).
To achieve a goal, a truly worthy one, it has to be an all encompassing desire, friend.
You have to take it to bed with you - and you have to wake up with it.
Many years ago, the last thought I had before bed?
"The hill tomorrow morning!"
And when I woke up, first thing?
A quick toilet, and then laced up my shoes - 530 AM - regardless of weather - and I was gone!
This kept happening for a while.
After that, I changed my workout timings, reduced the frequency, did other things et.
But it would never have happened had I not had that burning desire - which was planted into me by a girl although she has no idea how she did it!
RAGE, REVENGE ... ?
How dare she?
I'll show her!
Or, all of the above in a "very mild" manner ie. not harmful to the other person if thats possible!
I think most of all, it's the same thing that happens to me and every true doer when someone laughs at you, rejects your goals as dreams as being "possible for others" (of course, he has so much dedication, but you have no drive or desire - usually said by wack jobs of the highest order living on Venus or something) . but never for you.
A FIRE BREWS!
Then it builds.
Then you do it!
It may take years, but you fuckign DO IT!
And - you leave yourself with NO CHOICES along the way, or you likely won't do it (or you don't and won't do it at the level you wanted to).
Remember the story of the General Napoleon Hil lmentioned in Think and Grow Rich, where he literally ordered his soldiers, VASTLY OUTNUMBERED - to burn their ships as soon as they reached shore?
WIN OR PERISH!
They had NO choice but to win - and win they did!
There are countless other such stories, friend, that you might or might not hear of.
But, YOUR story too is similar!
And really, ... well, let me quote from the book - this part is key too.
A BURNING DESIRE TO BE, AND DO is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off. Dreams are NOT born of indifference, laziness or lack of ambition.
What are your DREAMS, my friend?
Trust me, we all have 'em - at ANY AGE.
You might believe they will never happen. If you do, you're doomed from the get go let me tell you this.
But if you believe, read the quoted part above - again and again.
Over and over again, and read this email too - not just once, but MANY Times.
Fitness wise, I've given you the same example above - remember, friend.
Life waits for nobody.
And I've been promoting Fast and Furious Fitness - the Collector's Edition since this morning for good reason.
If you read this email, be indifferent, continue the "stupor" and say "whatever", well, then guess what. you won't be getting it. And neither you will be getting something very special, something you'll cherish all your life, something that will give you dividends galore, truly, the GIFT OF A LIFETIME THAT NEVER STOPS GIVING!
Believe me, I wouldn't say it in those words if I did not mean it.
And the doers, those that want, remember, it's not just copies of this fantastic book but time that is OF THE ESSENCE AND LIMITED.
To claim your gift, click here NOW, friend.
And I'll see you!
I'll be waiting with the PEN too, hehe.
Been dealing with all sorts of issues as of late - wierd ones!
For one, a dumbphone that keeps restarting itself. Despite being in the "prime of shape" as it were, plenty of free space etc (hell, if 13GB out of 120 or whatever isn't free enough, I dont know what is!) - and of course, the "great" computer, and other strange issues.
For some reason, this site admin wouldnt load when I was writing this - until now.
Maybe the Bozo touch has touched it for just a nonce, hehe.
Boozo, we should all call him!
Anyway, one of the main rules I've ALWAYS had for business (that I've been guilty, I admit, of not always following in the past) - is "feed the business FIRST".
Years ago, in the past, when I first started out in biz, I'd be thrilled to get payments in. Who wouldnt!
But I'd often forget to "feed the hand that was feeding me" - the business - or I'd do it later.
My results were along similar lines.
Today, NOW, EVERY TIME I make a decision business wise - financially - small or big - I ask myself that question - and DO accordingly.
Feed the business first, friend, and it will feed YOU - more than you ever believed possible!
Trust me, I should know.
Pissing it away on "non essentials" may "feel good" for a while, but those aren't investments.
Put your money where it will work for YOU, not the other way around!
Anyway, this holds true for life too.
Are YOU giving your nearest and dearest, whoever that might be, enough time?
Are YOU giving your children enough "attention"? Your friends?
And so forth ...
And of course, fitness wise, this applies big time!
Question for you friend - -
What have you done today, or will do TODAY that adds to your fitness?
What purchase or investment have you made in YOUR FITNESS today - truly the most important you can ever invest in?
These questions should be asked daily, friend.
No it doesn't mean you buy fitness books daily.
I wouldn't want you to do that anyway - per person, I'd rather a person thinks - GETS a book - then DOES - then reports back to me with a great REVIEW - and then makes their next purchase!
But the question begets anyway.
And it is a great one. Write back - let me know!
PS - The 0 Excuses Fitness System and Fast and furious Fitness (The Collector's Edition) are two GREAT books you must have.
