Greatness! What is GREATNESS? Greatness is the is the best most influential way you can be. Greatness attracts more greatness and protects itself from the not so great. Greatness builds the good in you and wants you to succeed so you can help those around you. Greatness wants you to positively influence those around you. Greatness takes time.
Greatness takes time to cultivate because it requires skills. Greatness needs you to reflect on your life to see when you were not the most confident you and made a mistake. Greatness requires you to ask more questions to get better at life. Know what you want from Greatness and achieve it.
There have been many of times in my life where I have held myself back. Either to make others like me or to be liked. It just left me with more issues. Greatness makes you question “Am I this person’s karma?” Maybe this interaction will help me grow as a person. In my book Powerfuls: The Book of Power Gain I go into the art of reciprocation. Reciprocation is the art of giving back what you receive. We reciprocate because we do not need that energy.
Self-Hate is the most destructive kind of love. Why do I say it is a destructive kind of love? Because What I have observed is that we are not born to hate anything. We are born to learn but definitely not hate. When I see a baby crying for food or attention. I see an entity learning how to fill its belly or satiate a need. There is no hate there. I have never seen a deer hate someone without having a past with that person. I see self-hate as a love of the past.
The past was good to some but was bad to others. When the ones who were mistreated by the past look back they see themselves being mistreated. They just see it at face value nothing more nothing less. When they want to improve themselves they remember the time they wanted to do something different and failed at it. This stops them from trying again out of fear of ridicule and mistreatment. Why is this such a horrible thing? Because success doesn’t happen at a push of the button. Sometimes, you have to push the button till you don’t have a finger to press it anymore.
Self-Hate will hold you back from building relationships. Building relationships is a lost art form. The love of our past makes us live in the past. When we meet people of a certain color, demeanor, or even height. We can be prone to mistreat them because of our past. Self-hate can make our allies look like our enemies and our enemies look like our friends. We can end up helping our enemy and breaking our friends. The same friends that have been with us through thick and thin, Can look like our enemy from one bad day.
Self-hate makes us be very patient with our enemies but very impatient with our friends. Our enemy can be threatening to kill us but self-hate makes us laugh it off. Our friend could forget us at the store one time and we want to break ties with them forever. Why does self-hate make us love our enemies more? Because self-hate wants us dead.
Self-Hate is happy when you handle your problems passively. Self-hate loves to see you stressing from self-inflicted pain. Self-hate will change your life priorities to where you are paying the bar before you pay your bills. To where you are paying the store before paying the bills. Self-hate loves you being a detriment to yourself.
The solution to Self-Hate is very easy. Self-Hate is caused by unresolved conflict. When we are told to forgive someone it is meant to heal yourself. Your mind can play the rationalization game very well. It can make everything look like the fault of others in an instance. When we can forgive the past and take the effort to build ourselves in many ways. We can learn to move forward and love ourselves. Effort is an amazing game changer. When we get out there and resolve our problems.
Propaganda comes in many forms! Propaganda can be the show you watched where all the rich people have a heart of gold. It could be the show about a leader which only shows one part of their life but leave out all the bad or progressive stuff. I believe many of us have been victims of propaganda. When we mistreat each other because we have been told to think of each other or if you see your friend of a different race as “one of the good ones” You Are A Victim of Propaganda. If you see yourself as “one of the good ones” You Are A Victim of Propaganda. Propaganda is defined as especially bias or misleading information used to promote a cause or point of view. Propaganda can be “your not the solution to your life, We ARE!”. Propaganda is very detrimental to us as human beings and wishes for us to not think critically of it.
In my book Powerfuls I go in depth about thinking critically. Even in school I have had to look outside the class and the text. Question everything given to you it could be a poison hidden in a good meal.
I am so scared to stand up for myself. The world is so fight or flight. My favorite thing to do is survive. I always must fly. I see a oppressed being harrassed by an oppressor. I look and then put my head down. If I make eye contact with them. They could attack me. There is no benefit to standing up for the oppressed. Doing so will make them take my trinkets away. I get want all my worldly possessions when I die. It scares me to think about life without my trinkets. On top of the person is bigger than me. I could be on the street without a dollar to my name. Then I couldnt pay my medical bills from getting beat up. I was taught at a young age to mind my business and respect people no matter what. It keeps me comfortable in my choices and keeps me out of trouble. Trouble is any consequence I must face. From a firm talking to or my comfort being taken away. Why do that? I am so likable. People love having me around. I do everything for everyone. They love it. If They want to make fun of me. I will laugh it off because it doesn’t effect me. I really love my dog but when it uses the bathroom on the carpet. I yell my head off at it. It deserves it. It should know better and I am the boss of it. Why must it be an idiot?! Ruining my life at every turn. It makes me sick seeing it act out around other people. I am so busy! The fear it puts in me. What are these people saying to others about my dog?! This is why I stand for nothing. People are so deceptive. They will make me feel so safe. Then tell me I am so ugly. Then I name call them back. Then the law gets involved. I am just going to stay in this bubble. The safe bubble where nothing can affect me. It’s where I can get lost in my music or video games. In this world I can play as the strong person, I am not in real life. I can make a difference in a world I can control. The real world is so unpredictable. Why complicate things more with my 2 cents? this will put the spot light on me. I hate the spotlight I want to make myself as small as possible. The attention is a challenge and challenges scare me. What if I fail? People will make fun of me. This can hurt my feelings so bad. I already have memories of bad situations. They can only get worse.
From Star wars to Batman, all stories are based in fact. Be it a traumatizing experience on a personal level or a horrible experience we have had together. All creativity comes tradgedy. We never want to hear a boring story. We need a conflict in our fiction. Be it us versus the big bad army, Being attack by aliens, going against the odds, or losing a loved one. We have all been there. Events like these make the best stories. When was the last time you read a story about a very happy individual with a happy day? Those go well in baby stories until the baby loses its mom. These are the best things to build from. Everyone loves the movie series Star Wars by Georg Lucas. The crazy truth is…They are all based on World War II. He saw the dogfight films from the war and wanted to recreate them. When you see the creativity of the special effects team making these films, It’s Impressive. Lucas’s fact-based turn to fiction has become one of the most successful franchises in the world. This should inspire you to write about your tragedies and put a spin on them. Tragedies in my life, influenced me to write the book The Lazy Man’s Hustle. I was at a very low point in my life for a year. Noone was hiring and no money was coming to me. I would lay in bed all day. I was very depressed. I felt I wasn’t worth anything. Then I started having Ideas. I went to several different events around the U.S. all on my savings. This really helped me see the entrepenuerial side of the business world. I saw how much of my time was wasted building for another persons wealth. This is when I started a landscaping business, a podcast, and started writing comics. I would sell these and make a good amount of money back. This inspired me to write The Lazy Man’s Hustle. I saw too many people sad with their lives because they were jobless or didn’t have the drive to leave a horrible job. They chose to be victims. This is how the fact of being jobless, helped my creativity. WHAT CAN YOU CREATE FROM TRAGEDY?
Fear, one of the most controlling emotions in the world. Fear can make the lazy act. Fear can make the most powerful cower. Just one sense of loss will make a powerful shake. Why does the author of The author of The Lazy Mans Hustle want to talk about fear? Well I saw how fear can affect a persons journey. The fear of getting out of your comfort zone can affect your growth. Money gets affected by fear everyday. When a doctor was dragged off of a plane. The airlines money was affected by fear. Others saw themselves getting drug off a plane by big scary security guards. This made the media sell the fear even more. Fear made the stocks go down. Fear is also the cause of deflection. Deflection is a fear of honesty. Deflection causes many bad habits to continue. Examples of deflections are “they are doing it too”, “what about your (off topic)”, and “this is my freedom”. Many people have destined themselve to destitution. They will never want to change. They see benefit in being a horrible, lazy, or complicit. There were many people that see benefit in a tyrannical system. They see how well they live in it and let others be destroyed by it. Why are we so fearful to change. Why do we look at others being hurt and add more salt to the wounds. These are all products of fear. Fear of being judged, fear of failure, and fear of success. What if we never let fear affect us? We all would be successful. We would all be thriving. Fearful people never want to see others succeed. It scares them because they have to look at themselves honestly. Lets all stop deflecting from the truth and embrace honesty.
Spider-man is a great case on how you have to get your idea out there. In 1962, Marvel was going to cancel the Amazing Fantasy comics because of poor sales. This prompted Stan Lee to write a comic book to supply teenage readers with a character they can identify with. Stan Lee and Steve Ditko came up with the character of Spider-Man. This character is a teenager with the name ending in “man”. This in a time when teenage characters were named “boy”. Stan Lee went to his editor several times to get the character approved. He was turned down several times because his editor wasn’t ready to take on the character of Spider-Man. The character that has MADE Marvel a big name and brought them into film. The character made Stan Lee the editor and face of Marvel. He is 94 years old and is invited to all the comic conventions and is an inspiration for many up and coming comic book artist and writers. You could be the next Stan Lee but you gave up on an idea on the first NO. Now, noone knows who you are or are inspired by your your actions. You still get visions of success but too fearful to take your next step. Get The Lazy Man’s Hustle today and follow the outline. It will get you to your next level. Follow the link and enjoy freedom of vision
LIFE itself should be used to better yourself and others. Your example should positively influence others. They should feel your positive energy in every word you speak and every action you take. This is your stamp on the world. Your seal on the planet. If you don’t bring your improvement into every situation. YOU stay stagnent and ever waiting for your next step. Instead of being proactive in your short time on this planet. To keep me out of a rut, I use the 3 I’s. The 3 I’s are improve, influence, and impact. These 3 I’s will keep you noncomplacent and always growing. When you see your effect on people make them want to improve. You will feel a sense of completeness.
Hubris, some see it as a gift and some see it as an opposition. The ones who see it as a gift use it as such. They make hubris work to better the lives of others or help empower people in their community. They see hubris as a way to build self confidence in the person that is oppresed daily. Always improving because they have accepted themselves and want to help others.
The ones that are against hubris want to control the hubris filled person. These people hate the confident person with self-respect and abundant self-confidence. The will try to bring them down. They will treat the confident person lower than them because they fear being stood up to. They hate to see the confident person achieving greatness, doing things their own way. This is where bullying comes in. The bully hates seeing one of their victims getting up on their own and seeing their worth. The bully needs a punching bag to vent their lack of self-confidence. When the “hubris” filled person stands up to them they see the truth in their false confidence. They see they are weak.
Hubris should be used wisely. I use my hubris when someone want to bully me and make me feel smaller as a person. Hubris is a great armor and weapon. When people try to belittle you, hubris makes you stand up for yourself. If hubris wasn’t their you would become encumbered by others petty problems. They would use you as a place to vent their problems but instead of talking to you. they will treat you less than you deserve.
