"Thats just brilliant!"
I can still hear it, I've heard it so many times - even grudgingly from those that truly hate me and my guts (more my guts, hehe) the most.
"You're an extremely intelligent person!" they'll yell like banshees (I remember a certain time when ... ah, but lets not go there for now).
Admittedly I use my brain in the right manner, which is more than what most people do, but I truly believe if we all tune in the right way (hint - simply writing out sheets of paper by hand because the Guru on Youtube told you do it aint the right way necessarily) - then we're ALL brilliant.
In our own ways, we all can be, pity that most people dont tune in and GET it.
But my brilliant ideas, which "come from the ether" is the best way I can put it, much like Edison once said - aren't the only reasons for my success at life, business, even women.
It boils down to much more.
Brilliance is one thing, but as Bret the Hitman Hart would know "excellence of execution" is EVERYTHING.
Hart probably still remembers the times Owen and he trained with Stew Hart in their familys basement for years - starting when they were little kids.
The yells of pain would reverbrate through the entire house as Dad taught them how to wrestle - real wrestling.
Tough love taken too far?
I dont think so - look at the Hitman - say what you might about him, the man is a monster - a REAL wrestler - and SOLID to boot, even with all the injuries and all he's had, much like with the Undertaker "best pure striker in the WWE", you just get a feeling of "REAL strength" when you see Bret Hart and those shoulders!
Point is this - brilliance is one thing, but it wont win the day over, friend.
"Genuis is 99% perspiration, 1% inspiration"
So said a great man, I do not remember who. (ok, I googled it - Edison again).
Think about it, mi amigo ...
A man who says "ideas come from the ether" - and then the part above.
Sounds self contradictory, the two dont go together?
But they do, my friend.
They do, and they're symbiotic (sorry, haters of "big words", hehe).
One can't exist without the other. (especially not #1 without #2).
Pun NOT intended.
Most of my success in business, for one - life, women etc - boils down to not intelligence, but being, and staying in the trenches.
Way too many people give up at the slighest hint of trouble, ready to accept their "comfortable lives of medicority which most men seem to be willing to live".
No Gumption Galore, no PERSISTENCE, none of that, no stickability ...
Plans - made in the subconscious, but more importantly, following through on those plans no matter what.
Having FAITH - and INVESTING. A lot of my own success would neve rhave happened without investing, reinvesting, and I dont just mean financial either my friend. There's way more to this.
Paying attention to the little details and more ... When it comes right down to it, success is usually a result of those factors EVERYONE, born brilliant or not, can control.
Academically, romantically, all the same.
You can be the most handsome guy or gal out there (since gals are apparently handsome now, and guys are "pretty") - but without game, you're dead in the water.
Despite what they show in 3 Idiots, you won't get anywhere being brilliant but not "mugging" for exams that need such - you'll simply fail or not do well at all. Fact.
Fitness is the same.
Some people are naturally just genetically gifted, fitter than others. Granted.
But take that genetically "well disposed" person - compare him to someone like me whose been in the trenches working it out AGAINST all odds, and coming out on top - well, y'all know who I'd learn from!
You may think that is bragging of the highest and grandest order.
Maybe it is in some ways.
But can you say its not true?
I dont think so my friend.
Bottom line - YOU too can get in the best shape of your life, but only if you take ACTION NOW.
If you just read this and "do nothing", you're part of the do nothing crowd.
If you're NOT part of that crowd, well, start NOW - right HERE.
PS - Do nothing's, if you dont mind, do SOMETHING and hit unsubscribe. Why clog up the plumbing Hehe. (well - many good reasons to do so, Glyn could tell you all about the plumbings he's clogged, and continue to happily unclog but I'll let that one be for now!).
