Fight Your Way Out Of A Slump: Youtube Edition

30 minutes before a presentation / interview / date and you don’t feel that familiar burning vigor stirring in your belly. Too little time for a quick gym pump or a Les Brown video, what can a man do in this short time? Besides positive affirmations, these are the quick videos that work for me, and I hope work for you too.

Fedor, the greatest MMA fighter to ever live, and my personal favorite. Watching this nondescript Russian pulverize everyone, regardless of size and strength into submission always gets me amped up. The perfect person to start this list, here are his opening words.

“Before the fight, I try to concentrate on my inner self, think about something I like. Whatever I do, I just try to think about good things, and that helps me. Everytime I win, all of these things, and all of these events, I was getting ready for them.”

Your in full go mode now champ. Remember “no pain, no pain, no pain”.

Finish strong by turning War up, closing your eyes, and visualizing success in the immediate endeavor ahead of you.

If you have a favorite routine to pump you up in 30 min or less, let us all know how you go about it in the comments below. Good luck and God bless.

Motivation: Lux Homes Edition

Every man needs a place to rest his head after a long day of bending the world to his will. A place to celebrate life’s joys with friends and family. A place to retreat to when it all threatens to overcome him.

These images not only motivate but also inspire me. Someone envisioned the final structure, laid the plans, cleared the land, built the foundation, walls, floors, ceilings and infrastructure. Someone stared at the empty rooms and sought to turn a barren space into a home. Your ideal home doesn’t have to be lavish or expensive. As long as you’re happy with it and it serves it’s purpose.

 

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).
