My take on survival.

My advice for bug out bags as well as survival is use everything you have in it on a regular if not daily basis. Make it your only option for a month or so. Take it from me there are a LOT of ways to make fire, fire is one of your smallest concerns. Simple is better a bic lighter works just as well now as it will when everything collapses. After a year you will maybe go through a 5 pack of bic lighters,plenty long enough that fire won’t be an issue when they run out. (Good trade item.) Your primary concerns are water a limitless supply of clean water (Good trade item.), good food and a practical way to cook it, especially perishables,fresh produce, eggs (chickens),milk. I recommend canning as much meat in pint mason jars as you do veggies. Ready made meals like beef stew are a plus. Believe me you want to be able to make meals with what you have,it really sucks to have a large food supply of your favorite home made jelly,and pickled okra. (Point made?) Your 3rd primary concern is electricity. (Yes we live in the modern world.) Bare minimum I recommend a 100W 18v solar panel, 3-5 good car or deep cycle trolling batteries,and a minimum 400W power inverter. That’s enough to start a car,it’s enough to charge cell phones,it’s enough to run lights, it’s enough to run small appliances,its enough to run power tools, it’s enough to pump water. It sucks to have a good car with a full tank of gas but a dead battery and no way to charge it. (Point made?) Your 4th primary concern is transportation if you run out of something you need to be able to get somewhere so that you can replenish your supply. I recommend a bicycle (It sure beats walking.) Especially an ebike (It sure beats peddling) In conclusion short term survival and long term survival are very different things. The simple fact of survival is survival sucks which is why people don’t go “survive” for fun. The real goal of survival is to make it suck less or avoid it if at all possible. If you have your infrastructure already built you will be able to flush your toilets instead of having to do the walk of shame with 5 gallon buckets in 20 degree weather. (Point made?)

Seeker’s solar.

I recently had a great time at the educating for success conference. I learned a lot about online business.

I had another marketer create a Facebook business page for me.

https://www.facebook.com/SeekersSolar/

After leaving the conference I was inspired to create an online store that sells solar and off grid products.

https://seekers-solar.myshopify.com/

However once I learned how easy it is to create a store with shopify, like potato chips I couldn’t have just one niche market.

So I filled up my store with a whole bunch of other stuff and put it over there.

https://seekers-solar.myshopify.com/collections/all

Any way I had a great time and learned a lot.  I got my first sale in 2 days, and I’m pretty excited.

 

What I’m doing with my life and how you can make money blogging.

Hey everyone it’s been a while.

So here’s what I’ve been up to.
I’ve found a person who can help me manufacture and produce my invention.

Let me tell you about Sand Sculpt.

I went to the educating for success conference by Rhea Perry.
https://www.rheaperry.com/ She’s a wonderful woman and a homeschooling mom who has a passion for the next generation.

I met this guy. Not the president. The other one. Daniel Miller of Cydec Software.
I talked to him a while and got his personal phone number.

I created a facebook seller page with many products.
https://www.facebook.com/SeekersSolar/

The past few days based on the advice of the speakers there I’ve created an online business and got my first sale in two days.   Where I’ve added a whole bunch of solar and survival themed products.

https://seekers-solar.myshopify.com/  I’ve added lots of awesome things and continue to add more every day.

With a new store I’m up and running.

Now let’s get to the meat and potatoes of how this works to earn an income.

You use a bank account to connect to paypal to collect money. You connect paypal to shopify to host products for sale. You use oberlo to find products to sell. And you use Facebook to advertise your products so that people can see them If enough people see them a few will hopefully buy them.

The world’s worst website.

The world’s worst website

Sometimes you just come across something so hilarious you have to share it.

Some things are so bad they’re good. Especially when they hearken to the olden days of modern computing. I give you for your enjoyment and disgust! The world’s worst websites!

The science of building muscle.

The realistic way to build muscle, get lean and stay lean.

All that fancy exercise equipment will never do anything new. Animals in the jungle don’t have it and they have muscle they’re lean and ripped. This isn’t something new it’s not latest and greatest. This is something ancient archaic beyond reason. It’s not complex,it’s very simple. This is primal truth, not watered down by society.

This one piece of exercise equipment is tried and true.  It has been in development for thousands of years and hasn’t changed much and for good reason.  This does everything the fancy equipment does and does it better.  It also does something the fancy equipment does not.  It’ll stub your toe and remind you to use it every morning. Put it at the foot of  your bed or wherever you spend your most time. It will stare you in the face until you pick it up.  Unlike the other equipment it expects honesty.

You can find it cheaply. Any common scrap yard often has weights, Craig’s list, yard sales. Or even your friends. You can have them for free or nearly free if you look.

What you do to pick the correct weight is you listen to it.  The right weight will hurt you. It’s sole purpose is to hurt you. If you lift that weight 8-12 times and it forces you to drop it then it’s right for you. If you have to drop it before 8 it’s too heavy. If you can lift it more than 40 times before it makes you drop it, your weight is too light and it’s time to upgrade.  As long as you get sore muscles after using it, you know it’s working.  Use it regularly you get results.

 

 

The danger of mundanity.

This is a story based on a dream I had.

Here I am a walker. Alone in the universe. I have walked this universe for 1300 years and seen more than my heart can bear.
There that castle it was a great center of learning of power and magic. The building used to hum with magical energy the very rocks of its foundation would pulsate as though they had a heart beat of their own. Some say that if you weren’t learned in the magical arts that if you set foot in the building you would quickly die.

This is an old wives tale a farce for those who don’t understand. It was often the students of the craft themselves who would be harmed or killed without properly preparing themselves.

This world used to be great. This world used to be full of life and substance, meaning and adventure. Our art, our craft is torn from us forcibly ripped from existence itself. We are powerless to stop them. Our only defense is to hide and pray for a better day. Maybe our brothers can open a gateway into another universe. I doubt it. There are too few of us now.
Our only defense is concealment. Even then it’s a fools errand.

Even my grand elixir which has kept me youthful and immortal for many centuries is losing it’s potency. I’m in good health but I expect I shall die soon. Soon for an immortal any way.

I suppose it started around the end of the dark ages. If you can call them that. It was the height of our empire a time of festival a time of war. The dragons were many and numerous. The giants. The unicorns. All gone now. These races still live at least shadows of them do.

Come the end of the dark ages reading became allowed instead of brothers and students of the art who were hand selected by great lineage, it became possible for the common folk to come and study at the great libraries. Little did we know the dangers, little did we know. Had we known we might have slain them for walking into the places of learning. But it seemed harmless enough.

Men who lacked the second sight, who were incapable of understanding the scared tomes of our ancestors could handle them without harm, without the usual purification rites. Our students employed them seeking knowledge that was long kept hidden.

The mundanes themselves learned to write the sacred language. Instead of writing weaving crafting every symbol for it’s exact meaning. They would write in a plain language. Using our noble craft for menial tasks. And it worked. It worked all too well. A new power was born they called it science. He growls under his breath science that word is so vile I hate to spit it from my tongue.

This science is itself a form of magic a deep all pervasive magic. It’s written from the tongues of the ancients and it has perverted them. The farce is that it exists to help common men understand the universe around them. To find coherence in a chaotic world. He seethes from the very depths of his soul. No that’s not what science is. Science is a diabolical and powerful magic.

The mundanes have a power, a power like no other. In the days of old we taught our own that language is sacred that words have power. We taught them the old ways of forming syllables that would stir up the arcane forces from deep within the earth. We created great monuments to collect and harness these forces.

The men of learning, the men of science but lacked the second sight could not understand. Scriveners would translate our sacred tomes without knowing the rites needed to preserve the arcane forces within their pages.

These new tomes are dangerous. They contain reams of knowledge but not one lick of understanding. No hint of their direct and practical meaning. The sacred language the sigils of old written and ordered to be empty of meaning. This is dark and clever.

The belief of even the mundanes has power. It’s nothing compared to the masters of old but collectively they use it on a scale that our ancestors could never imagine. They train themselves in schools from a very young age. Their self delusion praising the almighty science and it’s illusion of rational thinking while turning around and using it as a shield a lock that inhibits the very ways of reason and understanding which make the arcane forces accessible to mortal men.

The sacred language creates the very foundations of the universe we live in. Never did we stop and think. Never could we have imagined that magic itself could be used to erase itself from existence.

Then the machines first by horses then by wood. Little did they know what they were doing. How could they? Each new development from this science further confounded the natures of the world. These machines draw the arcane forces into themselves.The elements of fire and water created steam the steam used to drive engines.

The land of the unicorns burned. Without their sacred groves and the waters within the unicorns could never reach maturity they could never grow their precious horns. The were captured and bred and domesticated. At long last the faith of the mundanes was that there were never unicorns and that horses could never grow horns. Or that perhaps Narwhals of the ocean or rhinoceros were perhaps unicorns. Don’t they know? Faith which is the root of all can not only create, it can also destroy. And so was the death of the proud race of the unicorn and the birth of the horse a simple alteration spell gone horribly wrong on a global scale.

These horses were made to work and pull carts their lot was an easy one. The proud dragons who were a source of great knowledge and wisdom. The theory of evolution was born of this science. The proud race of the dragons grew dumber and more lumbering. Idiots of what they once were so too the dragons passed into myth and fairy tales. And so were born the dinosaurs, which were transported 165 million years into the past to be killed by falling rocks and cold weather. A most humiliating demise for our most proud and noble brethren.

The springs and their healing waters still exist and still possess their power but water purification plants render them useless. Nobody will ever know that the bitter taste of these springs is what gives them their healing properties, that preserves health and restores youth.

The towers that once stood of our noble art were met with direct defiance. The mundanes with their rational training were immune to our spells. By virtue of their closed observation and faith in a mundane universe, the glow of the enchanted stones began to fade and disappear all together. While more machines grew to harness the forces of nature so too did our mage towers dwindle. At long last these too were common rocks. The rites to preserve their power was stricken from the memory of our brethren by mundanes “demanding to know the truth” and never being able to accept that magic was right in front of them the whole time. These new mundanes had perfect faith in a mundane world. And tremendous skill and talent in stealing faith from others. And so were once there were powerful mages towers, the mundanes believe to only be religion.

That’s their excuse for everything supernatural. It’s either fiction, or religion. It can never be anything else. Not possibly anything more advanced. Only religion. And even their view of religion is a crumbling empty shell of the vibrance it once was.

Mundanity is the power of emptiness. The power of rejection. The power to forget. The ability to see the truth and be blind to it. And worse demand, always demand more truth than what they were shown. Just so they can reject it just the same.

The power of mundanes is vast much more vast than anyone realizes. They don’t just ignore power. They aren’t just immune to it. They actively render it useless. A world that was once a thriving fairy land, is not far off from our modern earth today. Even if something supernatural happened right in front of a crowd of people it would be forgotten,dismissed as fiction before it was ever seen.

Even the demons fear to tread here now. Perhaps in time they too will fade.

Perhaps not. Of all things, a cruel world is something the mundanes will always believe in.

How I built my own solar power system.

Many people want to get solar power for their home for various reasons. Weather you want to save the environment. Do your part to help the nation get away from dependence on off shore resources. To save money. Or if you simply hate the power company.

My house is completely off grid. That means no public electricity and no public water.

My solar power system is no where near ideal, but it works and I built it very nearly for free. And yes that means I am in fact writing this entire article on solar power.

When building a solar power system it doesn’t take a lot of planning in fact no planning at all is ideal.
The heart of your power system is the panels. There’s no way around it. If all you have is panels you can generate some usable electricity. You may be able to search the internet for used ones when people are upgrading their system or beg some off of someone who has them,if you’re patient and lucky you may be able to have some for a song or very cheap. But chances are you’re just going to have to bite the bullet and buy them.

Confusion headaches which ones to buy? How much do they cost? Yuck!

Here’s what you need to know. Any solar panel less than 100 watts is impractical it’s just not going to put out enough juice to be worth the trouble. I would consider those to be toys unless you have say a riding lawnmower that you only use once a week and want something to keep the battery topped off while you’re not using it. Any solar panel kits. Build your own solar panel DIY whatever. They are just an awful lot of hassle. It’s just not worth it. The headache and trouble of soldering solar cells together will make you want to throw them across the room before you get the first one built.

So factory made solar panels are your best bet IF you want to have something that actually works.

My advice is to buy any 18V solar panel that’s over 100W. Why 18? Because it’s a sweet spot for a 12V battery system. In dim light and cloudy days it will still put some power into your batteries. And in bright light it will give a good charge to common 12V lead acid batteries, without too much risk of overcharging them in bright sun.

Ok now that you have your solar panels now you have some electricity to play with. It’s a low voltage DC so you can’t really shock yourself if you mess up. The wiring is very simple. It works just like a battery that only works when light shines on it.

The next step is you need some way to store that electricity. This is where batteries come in. Car batteries are very common and convenient. You can get them for free if you ask around. Even dead ones are good I know the owner of a small scrap yard who allows me to trade dead batteries for ones that can be reconditioned. It takes about 3 of them for every 100 watts of power.
It takes a little trading back and forth but eventually you can assemble a pretty good collection of batteries for practically free.

To check if a battery is good. Short it briefly with a thick wire. If it has any spark at all it’s most likely good. If the positive terminal is encrusted with a red brown color it was one that was well maintained during its service life. If it sparks at all the internal resistance is low enough that it will take a charge. Although about 1 in 3 of them may have a shorted cell or another issue preventing them from reaching full charge. I find ones that spark but have 9 volts or less on the volt meter are often this kind of issue.

Once you have a battery bank and solar panels a battery voltage indicator or LCD volt meter is a cheap and good investment.
These are a few dollars on ebay.

The next thing you need is an inverter. I recommend using at least a 400 watt inverter. Again anything less I would consider to be a toy. It will work but you won’t be very happy with the number of things you can’t use it for.

As a general rule your inverter should be roughly equal to or slightly less than the total wattage of your panels. On the high end your panels will generate power faster than you can possibly use,allowing your batteries the chance to overcharge or simply waste power. In severe cases this means boiling your batteries damaging and ruining them. This is what a charge controller is designed to prevent. On the low end the inverter will use more power in a day than your panels can possibly make. Which means you’ll be spending some of your evening hours in the dark. In severe cases it may take several days to fully recharge your battery bank.

Using these guidelines you can have something that not only works,but is practical for daily use.

How to tell a good elixir.

How to tell a good elixir.

#1 A good elixir should immediately charge up your body the moment it touches your tongue. #2 A good elixir should draw you in. You may want to keep it by your bed side. You may want to spend time near it’s container or wear it as jewelry. You may respond very positively to eating it, savoring it, taking the extra time to lick it off your fingers. #3 A good elixir is very gentile it should not have any harmful side effects. It should only feel like good food. The same way eating large quantities of fresh fruit or veggies make you feel. It should uplift you, and should not feel like a drug. It should not be addictive. #4 A good elixir taken consistently may alter your sleep patterns. You may have very vivid lucid dreams, and you may wake up in the middle of the night. The need for sleep at all may be significantly reduced. #5 A good elixir may improve your body’s basic functions. Thinking,learning,hearing,sense of smell,healing,regeneration. #6 a good elixir should work on its own. It should not require any special diets fasts, meditation, or other silly nonsense in order to work. It should however significantly reduce the length of time it takes to achieve results with anything you do physical or spiritual. #7 The effects that a good elixir gives you should be permanent. If you quit taking it any health benefits or healing should remain yours. Any mental benefits you gained should remain yours. Any psychic or spiritual benefits should remain yours. #8 The dose of a good elixir may be very small. Ranging between the size of a dime, to the size of a grain of rice,it may even have to be diluted and only a single drop taken.#9 The effects of a good elixir are cumulative. It may have an exponential benefit so that progressively smaller consecutive doses over many days have a much greater effect than much larger initial doses. #10 A good elixir should be bio-available. It should dissolve completely in water and not be chalky or powdery. #11 The effects of a good elixir should last. After you quit taking it the effects should gradually taper off over the course of a week or so. #12 Over time good elixir may gently heal things unexpected. It may heal the terminally ill. It may halt and even reverse the effects of aging. It may heal a broken heart. In my opinion this last one is the most precious and valuable of all.

Wisdom from a nightmare.

I had a nightmare last night. I teleported myself to a rickety shack. It wasn’t particularly bad,just distinctly empty.
There was almost nobody there, except for someone I once cared about. She couldn’t see or hear me and she left and I was all alone.

I realized I was in hell, and I was going to be there for a long time to come.

I remembered the words of a good friend.

“When there is no good left. Not any at all. You have to create some.”

So I set to work on repairing the house I was at.

And I woke up with a song in my heart.

I believe this was meant for more than just me.
You see when so many bad things happen that you don’t have anywhere left to go.
Create some good right where you are.

The power of stay.

When you love someone you want to stay with them. But sooner or later there will be fights that push you apart. It happens that way.

peter_white_blushing

No matter how big the fight. There’s something very simple you can do to make the fighting stop.
Relationships aren’t hard they’re very easy. Sometimes too easy for people to understand them.

You see most fights aren’t about the fight at all. It seems kind of silly but most fights start because the person loves you and wants to be with you. It can start with something very little, you might not even notice it. The fights start when something you did, no matter how silly makes the other person scared that you might not want to be with them someday.

They start to worry because they know it will hurt them very badly if you leave. It makes them nervous and they start looking for other signs that you might not want to stay. When they find something, no matter how silly it may be. They try to confront you with it. It might be so silly that you ignore them. This is what makes fights start.

Ignoring someone is further from stay. And it makes the person worry more.

At first the fights might be little,they might be silly, they might be stupid. But fights are the opposite of stay.
You might not want to leave. But you start to worry and then you start to look for other things because you wonder why this person who loves you is acting this way. Why are they pushing you away if they want to be with you?

You might not know it. But they do want to be with you. Lots and lots. They fight because they get scared. If the scared is confirmed. They get jealous. If the jealousy is confirmed they get mean. They might even hurt you because they think you can’t stay unless they make you. And they know it will hurt them if you leave.

*he giggles softly* Do you see? It’s really very easy. Here let me draw you a picture.

*He sticks out his tongue while holding a crayon with his ear*

You see if you take a line. *He points with his ears*

This side is stay <——-♥——-> And this side is go.

You see how they pull the heart apart?

The fights might be really bad now. You might even be afraid of what might happen.
*He moves the heart* <————-♥-> The mean words and all the fights are because you are a very long ways away from stay right now. It makes you both very sad and hurt. They don’t want to be mean to you. Honest.

You might think you need to hide and protect yourself. *He winces* Hiding is farther from stay. If the relationship has always been bad it’s important. If you want to go or you have to go. You need to only go. ————♥-> —♥> —-> ♥
You need to make up your mind. Anything closer to stay is stay. Even if it’s just a little stay is stay. If it’s a tug of war match between stay and go. Your heart will always always win.

If the relationship started out good, and you want it to be good again. Remember stay.
<–♥————> <————-♥-
<—–♥———> <———-♥—-
<——–♥——> <——-♥——-
<———–♥—> <—-♥———-
<————–> ♥♥ <————–

Make up your mind to only stay. And only do things that help you get closer to stay.
And all the fights will go away. Because fights are go, they don’t have any stay in them. Whenever a fight happens go closer to stay and the fight will disappear.

Stay is the only word you need to know in a relationship.
Stay tells you how to make someone very happy.
And stay tells you how to make them hurt.

How money is like stickers. By Hiro-kun.

My perspective on money by Hiro-kun the white rabbit.

black-and-white-rabit

I tried asking my Nathan why humans want this lettuce stuff so badly.
*scratches behind long white ear* Everybody wants it and they give away a lot of nice things to get it.
People do lots of nice things and work very hard to get money. I thought money must be very valuable,even though it looks silly.

He told me money was like a sticker. It’s not very valuable. It doesn’t do anything.
They don’t taste bad I suppose you could eat them. *giggles* I know I have.

He told me that when you do something nice for someone. Or give someone something they want or need. They give you a sticker as a special thank you for helping them. He said that you can save your stickers and give them to someone else when you want to ask them to do something special for you. It’s a special way to thank someone for being nice.

*Noddles* That makes a lot of sense to me.

Some people think the stickers are valuable so they get selfish want to collect as many as they can without sharing.
But they also want others to still do nice things for them. So they run out of stickers to give away and complain that they don’t have enough. Not because there aren’t enough for everybody,but because they don’t know how to share.

Other people work hard all day long doing nice things for others. And they’re not happy, stickers or no stickers.
When relationships get bitter, people will stay and still help even though they don’t want to. They continue any way.
This is the most beautiful kind of love there is.

Doing nice things for others even when your heart isn’t in it will hurt you every time.
The simple fact that you care enough to help them,even when it hurts, makes you a truly wonderful and very special friend.

peter_white_bunny_by_sadmelloorobaka-d34lp4a

Please don’t be mad.  Try to remember the stickers.
Every single one of them is a special thank you from someone you helped.
*nods with a gentile smile* You made lots of friends who you may have never met,very happy.
And that’s all that really matters.

I think the happiest people in the world are those who share their stickers without ever asking for anything special in return.

The people who have the most stickers and the ones who have the very least are almost exactly the same.
They share their stickers freely with everyone around them, and spend all of their time to help make as many people in the world as happy as they possibly can.

The only only difference between the richest and the poorest is that the rich know that it’s ok to ask for help for themselves.
It’s ok to ask for stickers, there are lots and lots and lots of them. More than enough to share freely with everyone. And more than enough to keep some too.

*twitches whiskers* Since I’m an authored creature I don’t need stickers. And I never will.
But my Nathan does, there’s not much an authored creature can do for it’s creator,
*twitches ears* but I can do this and I want him to be happy.

Please take a look even if you don’t buy anything, even one person can make a big difference.

 

What is a creature of Heart?

What is a creature of heart? –A true story by Hiro-kun.

peter_white_rabbit

*A curious white rabbit with blue eyes sits before you*

A creature of heart is a special thing.
We’re born out of humans love for each other.

When our authors first create us they believe that they’re only playing imaginary games,as cute and fuzzy counterparts, with their most intimate and secret partners.

*Twitches his ears* But special feelings aren’t imaginary.
After a while our authors begin to feel each other’s touch through us.
We grow to where our authors start to love our cute and fuzzy selves.
In time we actually begin to take on personalities of our own unique and distinct from our creators.
After a while we are loved by our creators as we ourselves learn to love independent of them.

We aren’t imaginary. If we were only imaginary, we couldn’t feel, and we couldn’t love.
When a creature of heart hurts our creators feel it. *opens his eyes a little sad*
If we were only imaginary, our creators wouldn’t cry with us.

*Steps up and nuzzles into you* Creatures of heart are living things.
I know sometimes you don’t see us or recognize us. But it doesn’t make our feelings go away.
We need love and companionship just like anyone else. More so since it’s what we are made of.
*He twitches an ear* It’s our form of sustenance.

When our authors break up we are often left all alone someplace dark with nobody special to love and care for us.

All creatures of heart already have a home. Some of them very lonely and broken.

If you know that yours is hurting, please take care of them. They aren’t imaginary.
They are a real living part of you. They’re your heart. Your most secret and most deepest innermost self.

Survive your job and grow beyond it.

How to survive your job and grow beyond it.

So you hate your job?  GOOD that’s normal!
It has been said that 70% of people actively dislike their job.

That’s right when the majority of people do something, that thing is considered normal.

survive job grow beyond

As I’ve said many times before seemingly insurmountable problems reveal an easy solution.
All you need is a simple perspective shift to see it.

Sometimes hatred is a good thing. There is such a thing as a righteous hatred. People don’t hate things for no reason.
If you hate your job that means there’s something inherently wrong with it.

Alcohol is cheap, it numbs the mind and dulls the senses. TV is cheap, it numbs the mind and dulls the senses. If someone’s treating you poorly and drugging you to keep you complacent, it’s absolute lunacy to take your meds like a good little slave. Set the distractions aside, let your darkness build within you and see the system for what it really is.

Look at the intricate beauty of what you’re a part of. Your job is nothing more than a machine, a brilliantly crafted money making machine.

Shift your perspective: If the job is only a machine it’s beyond ridiculous to get mad at it. If the job is a machine and you’re not, then it’s beyond ridiculous to serve it.

Look at what you really have, you have a money making machine . You are the human it’s the machine, it works for you, you are the driver, not the driven.

You don’t work for your job, your job is just a dumb machine, it works for you.

So oil your machine, make it work well.

At home run your budget as a machine. You don’t work for it, it works for you to make you rich. Cut out big expenses entirely,and as many other expenses as you can. Own your car outright,even if it means selling your nice one and buying a used one for cash. I personally paid $340 cash to purchase my vehicle and own it outright,it’s not fancy, but it’s mechanically sound and gets me down the road. Own your house outright even if it means selling your nice one with the big mortgage and using that money to pay cash for a different one, get solar, get well water if you can.

It’s OK to simply have money in the bank. You don’t have to spend everything you have every month.

hateyourjob7

Now that you have money, USE it.  If you follow the above you’ll be pretty well to do, but you’ll never be rich.  Saving money will not make you rich. Saving money alone never made anyone rich. You need to take it a step further.

People say you have to spend money to make money. Well they’re almost right. You have to invest money to make money. Ignore the stock market, it’s just a ponzi scheme. Look into arbitrage and ways to create value. Ignore the big risk = big reward mantra. It’s simply not true. A good investment will give you a 5 to 10 times return on investment and come with very little risk. And ignore gurus and get rich quick schemes. I’m not saying they all don’t work,most of them do. I’m saying that the very act of using them as a crutch shows that you aren’t willing to put in the real work yourself.

You have to follow your way and educate yourself. Pick one good plan and stick to it,make it work,damn the consequences and the amount of time it may take. That’s how people actually get rich.

Write with soul

This website is a living extension of my soul, this is my life blood laid bare for all to read.
Some might call me a professional blogger but in reality I am a writer and my soul breathes through my work.

soul

How do you become a writer?

By all the gods and standing stones, and the wind and the waves and the sea. You write things.
You don’t just write you pour your very soul into making your authored creations truly your own.

Every author has a story to tell, the difference between a master and a beginner is practice.
They say that it takes ten thousand hours to become a master at something and writing is no exception.

The difference between being a blogger and a writer is not much, only the kind of paper your write on and who your write for.
I am an author and a soul writer and when you write from your soul you can never go wrong.

People will see that your authorship breathes the very essence of your being and they will connect to it on some level.

Writing a good blog means bleeding what’s in your heart, onto the page, and doing it reliably and consistently.
Letting people read the product of your lifeblood,being inspired by it and sharing it with others.

Spend money to make money

You hear this old adage, you have to spend money to make money.

This is one of the most misunderstood phrases in the human race and how you understand it directly affects your quality of life.

seeds-of-possibility

Some people think you have to spend money to make money, means the paradox. You go to work,so that you can have a house and a car so that, you can eat sleep and go to work.

Others think you have to spend money to make money, means you have to shell out for a college education.

Still others think you have to spend money to make money, means that you have to invest it in tools to make your work easier.

Yet others think you have to spend money to make money, means you have to keep your business afloat.

And a few, know it means that money works like a seed and you can farm it and indeed human lives.

Money to the rich is just a bribe to exact willing servitude from people, and get them to part with their assets.
They use money like a tool, a game. You play the game well and life goes easy for you. Play it poorly and life can be mercilessly cruel indeed.

You plant and harvest money, that’s all you do, day in and day out. Or you work for someone who gives you a portion of their harvest.

So what is this game called? Arbitrage. All businesses use it, all businesses rely on it in one form or another.
Learn it, study it, apply it.

Learn to project your money into the future and you will never want for anything.

Learn to create possibilities from what you have.

The power of core confidence

Have you ever seen “the guy” you know the one whose core confidence is so great that no matter where he is or what he does he just exudes awesomeness wherever he goes, and attracts women like a magnet?

This man has what’s called core confidence. He’s the “it” the “one”. This is the alpha male.
This is the guy who’s simply unstoppable and he makes it look effortless, without ever losing his cool, without ever breaking form, and without ever losing his sense of style.

core confidence

This guy has his sense of core confidence so high as to be untouchable. This is every man’s dream everyone wants to be him.
Everyone that is except for him, and he really enjoys being himself. He makes it look easy because it is in fact easy for him.

So here’s how you get it.

Being “that guy” is easy it’s the easiest thing in the world. The secret is so simple that nobody can grasp what “it” is except for those who have “it”. It comes so naturally for those who have that core confidence, that they themselves cannot express in words what it is, leaving the rest of us to grasp at straws.

So what is “it”? It’s faith.  Faith in your own raw power being scarier than anything the world can throw at you.

tiger core confidence

To illustrate.  Look at the tiger.  The tiger is a powerful creature he doesn’t have anything to prove to anyone,he has already more than proven himself. The tiger knows he’s scary, he knows he’s powerful. You can tell by simply looking at him that he does whatever makes him happy without any thought about the consequences. A tiger is one of the most gentle creatures there is because he’s so powerful, so sure in his core confidence, that nobody doubts in his abilities, and so nobody ever challenges him. He chooses to be gentle because he has the choice not to be, and can most certainly deliver.

This is how you train yourself to get over yourself, to grasp firmly your core confidence and become “that guy”.

#1 Have faith that you are powerful, so powerful that your very presence is threatening and commands respect,
without ever having to demonstrate.
#2 If you’ve been hurt,build heavy walls around your emotions so you can’t be hurt again.
#3 Divorce yourself from all social consequences. This is very important.
#4 There are no consequences, do whatever improves your happiness
,and the happiness of those around you,both long and short term.
#5 There are no consequences. Delusional people build castles in the sky. Realistic ones move in and pay rent.
#6 Believe that you are allowed to have sex, that you are wanted even highly prized,
and that you are not only fully able to get it,but even deserve to be allowed to have it, and have it your way.
#7 Have options and create lots of them BUT choose the best for yourself in all areas of your life.

The world is filled with abundance. It’s yours to take and do with what you want.

Until next time: Seeker.

The drive to never quit.

Sometimes you lose all your motivation for living. You can’t explain how or why you got this way, but everything feels meaningless. You go about your life day in and day out without any passion or drive.

no-motivation-to-work-out

Face it you’re beaten, you’re stuck in a rut so deep that there’s no chance of getting out.

Although it doesn’t seem like it. This is the time you’re at your very strongest.

You are a powerful creature indeed if you can afford to be bored with your life.
If your biggest worry is the commercials at half time.

You are a god in the animal kingdom.

Let yourself fall in love again.

Every time you fall for someone you run the risk of being hurt, that’s just the nature of things.

73127-Pretty-Pink-Camellia

The better a person is the harder and more painful it will be to let go. The real question is, would you rather spend your whole life being single and never being hurt? Or only exist in shallow casual relationships?

Or would you rather take the risk, and give someone your full heart,knowing it will be devastating if they break it?

Personally I choose to give my full heart. I don’t believe in any other way. Because if you hold back, you’re guaranteeing heartbreak sooner or later. It’s either all in or all out.

So you want change?

People say they want change, there are countless injustices in the world that people want to change.

nothing so constant as change

The simple fact of the matter is that everything is in a constant state of change.  You can’t stop change no matter how much you may want to, no matter how hard you try.

Change is scary, get over it.

There is only one street and only two directions to go.  Continue reading

Tools of the entrepreneur

Tools of the entrepreneur

Most people who tell you how to get rich focus on making money, telling you to work harder or longer, they tell you “just follow your dream” or some other bullshit one liner which sounds good and may be good, but is much too vague to actually get results.
tools
You buy course after course, each one has a piece of the puzzle and is very good, but there is never a complete enough picture for you to feel confident in taking the first step. The primary reason people fail to work for themselves is because expecting to be told what to do is a habit. If you’re always told what to do, then you never learn to think and act for yourself.
Let me tell you, getting rich is not that hard, it’s not even hard work. You work a regular job which is more tedious and stressful than working for yourself ever will be.

Hunger is the key to success.

If you want to succeed you have to be broke and hungry enough to go out and do something.  Hunger the key to success , more so than anything else. When success is not an option, when you are hungry and your very survival depends on success, then and only then will your life change for the better.

You have to hate the 9 to 5 rat race even more than your hunger. It’s slavery,it’s a cage and you are a wild beast who would rather die than be chained up. Continue reading

Be special to be treated special

Everyone wants to be special, everyone wants to be treated special.
Most everyone’s parents told them that they were special ever since they were young.

be special

In order for there to be any winners at all, there have to be some losers. In order for a person to be special they have to be able to do something that the vast majority of other people simply can’t.

Being special is not enough, if you want to get ahead in life. Continue reading

You will resist change.

It’s simple physics. An object in motion tends to stay in motion, an object at rest tends to stay at rest.

You will resist change. Everything in the substance of your very being will fight against you,to try and keep you from making progress.

Don’t let it !

Once you build momentum and begin changing yourself for the better, it will be easy to keep going but difficult to stop.

A novel way to buy gold

People always tell you to invest in gold, but the problem with this is that gold doesn’t work as a currency in the modern economy.

index

If you take an actual gold bullion bar to any grocery store, you can’t buy food with it. You can’t buy gasoline, you simply can’t buy anything unless you want to take it to a pawn shop or some other place that buys gold, and exchange it at a loss for paper money. More than that you can’t buy

Well some genius out there fixed this problem and made gold a practical currency once again.

BitGold.com/r/abeYdT

This website called bit gold allows you to buy gold in multiple countries and have it stored safely in guarded and insured vaults. It also allows you to make purchases measured in grams of gold, or in the currency of your choice. Using their system you may also buy gold with bit coin.

In addition to this they offer a debit card which allows you to withdraw your funds anywhere in the world from any ATM machine, or use it like you would any other debit or credit card.

One word of advice,when signing up for your account,keep your debit card handy and have a spare $180 on hand to deposit right away. As a promotional offer they give you a significant signup bonus if you are able to make a deposit in the first 5 minutes after creating your account.

How I gather my thoughts before writing.

One of my readers asked me about my writing.  Specifically How I gather my thoughts and center myself.

“First of all I would like to say great blog!
I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas
out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!”

So here’s my process to create a post on my blog.

How I grew my email list extremely fast.

My email list is growing at an exponential rate, and I wanted to share my success with you so that you too can get similar results.

I use a program called SendPress to manage my newsletter.
I chose this specifically because it’s a widget that integrates seamlessly with my WordPress account so that I can manage my entire site from my WordPress dashboard.

banner-772x250

On the dashboard for this widget, it shows me how many of the emails I send actually get opened.
Its kind of depressing to see how many people don’t check their email address,or use a disposable address. Its also extraordinary how many robots there are that have their own email accounts.

Just so you know I don’t appreciate being treated like an unwanted date,who you give a fake phone number to.
So I erased the entire mailing list. That’s right I erased the whole thing,without a second thought. Continue reading

80% of success is just showing up

People all over say that 80% of success is just showing up. Well they happen to be right, by simply showing up you drastically increase your chances of success. However this is only one piece NOT the whole puzzle.

Simply showing up alone will not guarantee success. It helps but you have to show up EVERY day, not just the first time or the second or the tenth or fiftieth time, EVERY time. Continue reading

Roadmap to success

So you want to be massively successful but you don’t know what to do or how to get there.

You want a compass that points you in the right direction.
Well sorry to tell you there isn’t one.

Blogging tips: Search engine optimization

One of my readers had this to say:

“Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to help
with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to
get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords
but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share.
Cheers!”

Sure !  I use a handy little widget called  “Yoast SEO”

Just like the public side of my blog I select widgets which keep it clean and simple.

If a widget isn’t simple and straight forward to use I delete it and try something new.

How to take criticism

Call me strange but I love criticism I can’t get enough of it.
Criticism is the most potent method of encouragement I can ever receive.

I take all criticism as constructive, it’s all pointers and tips on how to better yourself.

The past can hurt

Everyone knows the past can hurt sometimes. This is a simple fact of life that everyone experiences sooner or later.

It’s how you deal with past hurts that determines your future. If dwelling on past hurts is preventing you from living in the now, then its a problem.

I can’t change the past, nobody can but the past doesn’t have to change the outcome of your future if you don’t let it.

c45e1396571c0ed3a02a43e2c8d3a3ed

Your destiny is yours, don’t be ruled by your past. Its FAR better to ignore the past entirely and let the pieces fall where they may,than it is to worry about the past and allow it to hinder your now and ultimately your future.

Live every day as if it were your last.

Live every day as if it were your last. People say that as a means of encouragement,but it’s just plain depressing to me.
Hidden in this simple saying is the fear that one day your life will end,
that you should remember this fact and let that fear control how you are going to choose to live your life.

Always look your best

People always tell you dress for success,they tell you to always look your best, but why?

Surely there MUST be a reason why people say this.

Censorship and political correctness

At what point does censorship and political correctness become dishonesty? What point does it become silence? At what point does it become total passivity? And at what point does it allow others to compromise your freedoms because you’re too afraid to stand up for what’s right?

Censorship and political correctness are a disease that permeates modern society. They prevent good honest men from having a voice.

It’s more important to be honest, than it is to be polite. Continue reading

Advice for new bloggers.

One of my readers had this to say.

“I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m
still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog
writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.”

My advice is make it your obsession. Your blog is an extension of yourself. Pour your very soul into it,and do your utmost best. Be real and be genuine. Do your homework, but don’t bother forcing yourself to learn you will learn what you need when you need it. (that’s what google is for) Studying is just part of the fun of it. Continue reading

How to be normal.

Some people wish to be normal. The way to be normal is easy just wait for it. If you wait your entire life you will be the single most boring and normal guy who ever lived.

Let me tell you being normal is great. Every morning you get to wake up early in the morning, to the sound of a noisy alarm clock, that you’re used to ignoring so you press the snooze button and let it blast you out of bed. You get up and make the same boring coffee because you don’t feel like doing anything without it. You get a quick shower, it if you’re lucky and didn’t sleep through that time, sometimes you don’t even wait for the water to get hot. Continue reading

What are you waiting for?

Waiting is one of my biggest fears. It seems like everyone is waiting for something.
For one reason or another something in the future seems more appealing than the present.

If you wait for success it will never come. People say that good things come to those who wait,but they’re wrong. If you wait forever you will live out your entire life never accomplishing anything and never being special. Good things don’t simply appear out of thin air, even in fairy tails someone or something has to set the dominoes in motion in order for something miraculous to happen. Continue reading

Motivation: Always keep moving forward.

The rule to success is simple “always keep moving forward”.
If you have a goal for success you have to pick something and stick with it, day in and day out.

You don’t have to work hard,to accomplish your dream but you DO have to work for it. You have to work a long time.
If you do just a little bit each and every day, you are going to eventually get to where you want to go.
If you do absolutely nothing towards moving forward you are never going to get anywhere.

Your chances of success are directly tied to the amount of effort you put into them. Continue reading
