Men Need Lofty Goals

If I could only live to see it, to be there with you. What I wouldn’t give for twenty more years!

-Hyman Roth

The old man provides valuable insight into delayed gratification and effective planning. It made me think of where I would be in 20 years, and if I would I even be alive, much less successful in the goals I’ve set. If I don’t have a plan I know I won’t be.

I don’t know a lot of men with a long term plan. Sure the cops and teachers want to make it through their 20 years and retire, but that boils down to survival more so than dedicated plan. I think with age the ability to plan long term arises, but by then it’s too late. Most of the mid 20’s men I know barely have a 2 year plan, and what they do have only concerns their career. If you ask them where they will be in 5-10 years, it’s the rare man that can give a definitive answer. Of course circumstances change and unforeseen opportunities arise but even a general sense of direction will help. That’s where the lofty goal comes in. Like a far off lighthouse guiding you through the mist and rough waves of life, the goal acts as a beacon. How you navigate the various obstacles is up to you, but the direction is always clear. An oft used example would be Odysseus and his adventures on the way back to his beloved family. Years and thousands of miles separate the man from his home, but possession of self and mental fortitude  forge a rugged attitude, “nothing will stop me from my goal”.

My advice on planning is distilled in a quote spoken by Dwigt D. Eisenhower. “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” I know and fully expect for problems to arise. No plan survives first contact and by expecting issues and allotting both time and resources you can effectively overcome them. Think back to when you waited until the last moment to write a paper for school. You find out there’s an extra section to write, the printer doesn’t work, traffic on the road, internet slows to a crawl. You didn’t plan for the problems and paid the price, now extrapolate that for life.

Many men think they have the world of time to accomplish their vision. “Just as soon as I finish school, pay my loans, move, etc…” I’m guilty of it too and I fight everyday to stay on track. You’re mortal, you will die, and you probably won’t see it coming. There isn’t time to reminisce on missed opportunities, neither is there time to drag your feet in fulfilling your goals.

Sit down and write out where you want to be in 5, 10, 15 years. Mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, where you want to live, where you want your family to be (financially, physically, etc…) I don’t know what diverse goals you have set for yourself but charting a road map is the only way to success.

Success Principle: Temper Your Expectations

Lamborghini-Veneno-internet

Setting realistic goals is a valuable but difficult task for any ambitious soul. Ambition and motivation will mess with you and say you can be flying down I95 in that $4 million Veneno in two years time while you struggle to jump-start you’re 97 Mercury Tracer. Stories of the overnight millionaire and kids who hit it big in their 20’s are exceedingly rare despite the MSM’s insistence that it happens all the time.

People have a vision of “the life” in their mind’s. You know what it generally looks like, a fast car, attractive spouse, spacious house with every amenity, interesting friends, large bankroll, etc… What they don’t realize is that those things are loosely connected at best and don’t come in a nice neat little package. In a nutshell; you can have the money to buy a Ferrari but no have idea how to control 700 hp to the rear wheels. As they say the skills don’t come with the money. You could have the bankroll but the personality of a drunk sloth, guess what you have no friends or significant other. Or you have charisma in spades but no liquid capital, the examples go on forever. Forget that bullshit mindset “money buys happiness” and start setting specific goals in each area of you’re life. If you start from the bottom there is no place for pride in this process.

Women:

600full-daria-konovalova

You want to attract supermodels into your life but can’t approach women alone/sober/at all. Maybe you’ve never been in a relationship or maybe you do well with average looking women. Take positive steps, small at first to work your way up. Start a relationship with an avg chick or one who is below the threshold. Learn the ins and outs of the female mind (through experience not blogs) and build up from there. Trade up when you feel comfortable or start a soft harem. Everyone has different sticking points and it’s impossible to cover them all in a paragraph, most likely you know what you need to do, just do it already.

Pro-tip: Game + Access= Win. If you don’t travel in the same circles as her, you’re gonna be gaming your hand at the end of the night.

Money:

money-rolls

Minimum wage slave with big dreams. Focus on doubling your income in the next 2-3 yrs. The lower you start the easier this is i.e… you make $7 an hr currently and a quick craigslist search finds numerous jobs paying at least $14. It gets harder when you bank $500,000 already but not impossible, it just takes a sharper mind and a little ingenuity.

Keep the grand vision in the back of your mind and set small manageable goals daily/weekly/monthly/yearly. This is a marathon not a sprint.

Here’s You’re Motivation

The journey of self improvement and the road to success while well worth traveling are both littered with obstacles and setbacks. It gets disheartening at times, you start to second guess yourself and that creeping sense of failure/ dread/ lethargy creeps in. It’s important at these crucial junctures to remind yourself of why you started this trek and what you want at the end of it. Money, power, fame, sex, personal fulfillment, happiness (whatever that means), you can have it if you’re willing to sacrifice enough and stay true to your goal.

Before someone jumps down my throat calling me a shallow materialistic pos I’ll say this.  Yes I want to live in an aesthetically pleasing modern house, drive a fast sports car, and have beautiful women by my side, but I also want to be personally fulfilled, happy, healthy, have my friends/family well off, world peace, etc. Besides I can’t really photograph happiness and world peace so fuck that noise. Since I have so many pictures I would like to share with you all I’m going to make future posts categorized for you’re viewing pleasure (cars, awesome rooms/houses, beautiful women).

May The Bridges I’ve Burned Light The Way

StumbleUpon sends me here first:

4) I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

“Often they would not truly realise (sic) the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down.

“Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years.

“There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved.

“Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.”

That last line is pretty deep, “everyone misses their friends when they are dying”. The family I’ve fallen out of touch with, the women I never call back, acquaintances that want to be friends. All the people I waylay in pursuit of something else, something I value more than them at the moment. Will I regret it all right before I exhale my final breath, when it’s too late to change it all? Is it worth it?

I roll the thought around my head as I hit the button again and I get this…

Imagine The Story Pt.1 (NSFW Pics)

Before the hiatus from my Tumblr sex blog, (week 3) I accrued many interesting pictures, not all sexual. Occasionally I look at some of them and wonder what the story is behind them, even the ones that are staged provide ample food for thought. When I’m trying to loosen up my brain for posts or before I hit the town, I concoct background stories, dialogue, settings, etc for each picture. Sometimes it may be just one sentence while some turn out to be half a page or more. I have to say it helps me, it’s a sort of improv you can do alone. Try it out for yourself and post your versions in the comments.

1) I.E…*The apartment was clean, contemporary, and modern overlooking the NYC skyline, a guy could get used to this. I threw my bag on the bed and went into the bathroom as a smiling Nia followed. In the mirror I watched her gently kick the door shut as she asked if I needed anything else, a guy could really get used to this…*

This last picture has proven to be one of my favorites this year, I love every thing about it. Between her exhaling smoke, the booze, the guns, it’s a story waiting to happen.

Throw caution to the wind and go wild. Let your imagination run free, don’t forget we’re all anonymous here and anything goes. Don’t let the above example fool you, I tend to veer towards the dark side on most of these. The one area specifically going dark has helped has been with ONS’s. If you tend to bat for the side of good, cupcakes, and candycanes, letting your dark side out will be beneficial. Not only will you stimulate your own imagination, but this helps you stimulate hers as well. As Rollo wrote “A woman’s imagination is the single most useful tool in your Game arsenal. Every technique, every casual response, every gesture, intimation and subcommunication hinges on stimulating her imagination. Late in the interaction, when it’s a guaranteed lock, I can paint a picture of the rest of the night’s activities in a dark but classy way. “I’m gonna fuck you so hard” has given way to ” I’m going to take those lace panties off with my teeth as you feel my hot breath on the inside of your leg”. Okay, that not an actual quote but you get the picture, again the key is to be smooth and classy not drunk and humping her leg. Next week we explore darker territory with more sex, some drugs, and a copious amount of mayhem. There’s a dark side to you yet…

Seduce my mind and you can have my body. Find my soul and I’m yours forever.

Get On Your Shit (G.O.Y.S)

GET
ON
YOUR
SHIT

Someone, somewhere, at this very moment is out making their dream become a reality. Deals are being made, plans solidified. The decision makers are out shaping the world you live in. Some guy is banging that girl with the succulent cherry lips and getting tired of her. Another is out weighing his money because counting it takes too long. There’s an international playboy walking through customs, now getting another stamp as the customs official smiles knowingly at him. Tonight at that apartment on the 13th floor of 740 Park Ave in NYC there’s a party full of movers and shakers, are you invited? Or did you smoke weed all day in your basement with your loser friends? The choice is yours.

What Do You Want From Life

Truth

*At it’s heart this is a motivational site. I write about things I do to lead people away from fear of the unknown and towards a rich fulfilling life. However, sometimes you need to take a different approach. Sometimes that approach constitutes a scatter brained rant. With that said…*

What do you want out of your life? Are you working towards it? The second question is infinitely more important than the first. Everyone more or less wants the same thing, we are just at different stages.. As Maslow stated in his hierarchy of needs theory we need our physiological needs such as food, water, and shelter to be met first. Next is safety of body and resources followed by the next stage of group acceptance and sense of belonging. Fourth is esteem (confidence and achievement) and finally self-actualization where we ponder concepts of morality and spirituality. Obviously current refugees of the Great War of Africa are through no fault of their own stuck on the first and second levels. The conflict prevents them from living to their full potential. (*I’m not harping about Kony or that noise, haven’t even watched that vid that went viral.*)  Yet still, thousands of miles away here in the states there are thousands of people living unfulfilled lives through complete fault of their own. The faceless internet trolls would be quick to remind me of the homeless, drug-addled, and falsely imprisoned, stuck in fates cruel web. To them I say STFU, most made their choice early on and only a vast minority were forced into anything. You all have a choice, whether you plunge that dirty needle in your arm or choose to obtain your GED is yours and yours alone to make.

Many are quick to make excuses why they cannot pursue their dreams, they don’t go far. “I’m too (old, stupid, fat…) to get into shape”

Fuck you and your excuses, and no it's not photoshopped.

A busy schedule, kids, you don’t feel like it. Guess what, no one gives two shits about your excuses why you can’t exercise. Their just going to keep laughing at you behind your back because you are a pathetic sack of shit with no willpower..

.      Yet some of you will still make these half-hearted excuses about why you can’t (really you mean won’t) get into shape. Despite your Disney fairytale beliefs people will not respect you regardless of how you look. It’s always the fuglies and omegas who rant “why won’t you just accept me the way I am” or push the “just be yourself campaign”. But deep down you know why we don’t respect you. You don’t respect yourself enough to stick to your goals. Instead you foolishly hope the world will cave and love you for the special snowflake you truely are. The truth is everyone who is respected earns it through hard work and determination.  Fitness is only one aspect in a well balanced life. Perhaps you bitch and whine all day about being a cog in the corporate machine. You want to start a business but you don’t take any action at all. You want to be better with women but don’t approach. You want to learn a new language/instrument but never practice.

You can be better, you have to be better. That’s the simple fact of the matter. You must find a way to get to your goals. No one wants to grow old and wonder if their life could have been different if they did X activity or told X that they loved her. This is what keeps me driving everyday. I am young now but it will all be over soon enough. A human life is infinitesimally inconsequential in the grand scheme of things, faced with this fact I feel no fear. The universe is estimated to be 13.7 billion (13,700,000,000) years old. Your average life expectancy, give or take is 77 years             (                     77).  The time has come to step up, the time has come to be a fucking killer. Why are you still afraid?

To be continued…
