Misc. (108)

It might sound like a pipe dream. Eh?

But thats precisely and funnily enough, or perhaps NOT what some of the Bozos and price shoppers have said about my books.

The first, or one of the first reviews I got for Gorilla Grip on the Amazon UK page has been hacked to bits already by yours truly so I wont go there.

Let me just say that he ended with “he seems to be giving out MINIMUM information for MAXIMUM gains”.

Well, first off, even if I was, so what?

Isn’t that SMART?

What if you think thats what I do (no I dont) - and if you think thats "worth it" (which it ain't, but you seem to think it is!) is stopping YOU from doing the SAME (other than pure LAZINESS - this to the person who wrote that, of course) 

Second, thats NOT what all serious customers, or any of them for that matter say about yours truly and his products.

Charless Mitchell once said the following -

“I am willing to spend more on your products because the workouts are hard and CHALLENGING – and you’re the real deal! I hate books that dont challenge me, and yours DO!”

Another customer from the UK asked for a bit of a discount, and yet, when he first “gets money for Christmas”, here is what he said.

“I can think of NOTHING better to do with it than spend it on your great books”.

He is right.

THEY are right.

And they do it, and did it!

But anyway, lets get back to it ...

I’ve been speaking about How Windblows has brought my entire computer to a freezing, screeching halt over the past couple of months.

No doubt something to do with them trying to pry money out of me. Hehe.

(Hence the upcomin move to Linux).

But, I finally seem to have got things to a point I can WORK. Actually WORK.

Without the damn thing hanging every damn second.

And point of this?

It took me MONTHS Of searching to figure out a temp solution that took all of TWO mouse clicks to implement.

My wife, from what I hear has been having similar issues (not sure, but I think so) with her computer.

And if I tell her as I have in the past how to solve it? 

Rather than any sort of praise, I’ll get this.

“Oh, you’re an IT guy! So you know!”

Or ...

“Oh, that was so simple! Just two minutes...”

Huh??

What about the time taken to FIND the solution ?

What price the “IT guys who couldn’t solve the problem before?”

Not to mention I didnt learn much of anything other than about life in college ... and what I do now is so far apart from what I “studied” that it ain’t even funny.

But of course, try telling that to the sheeple.

I might not so much care about my wife telling me that.

I do, actually. Hehe.

But I care MORE about the IDIOTS that ask me, as a certain reader once did “why my ebooks are so expensive”.

I bet this same nimrod wouldn’t ask Bill Gates why Windows costs a bomb eh.

While NOT delivering value.

Or why GOOD things in life cost more money ...

It’s taken me YEARS to bring to life all this my friend.

It’s taken me YEARS of hard slog.

It’s taken me YEARS of hard work.

KNOWLEDGE and experience from being in the trenches, and if you or anyone thinks I should lower prices???

NO WAY.

No way, Jose.

LOL.

And thats really I gotta say about that.

It’s the little things in life that COUNT.

Small hinges DO swing big doors.

Ponder that for a while, my friend.

And then just do it!

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – And no, contacting me nicely and explaining your situation and asking for a bit of a discount or what not ain’t what I BE ranting against. In fact, precious few people do just that ...

It’s interesting.

My daughter made a comment today to me about reading “Ruskin Bond”.

Seems to be a dude from the UK if I’ve got it right who grew up wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the day in India, but I’m not sure. I haven’t read much of him, if at all.

I love Jim Corbett and his tiger hunting stories though, hehe. 

But anyway, it seems to be a good read for kids her age, but the comment?

“Reading helps put your thoughts on paper, Dad”, my little one sagely commented.

No doubt she learned that from the person who gave her the book. No prizes for guessing who.

“Does it”, I asked back.

And then I thought about it.

Sure it does.

“It’s a good habit”, I told her.

And then, of course, it had to come.

“Adults don’t have much time for creativity. You know, Dad, they have jobs ...”

And while I have NO idea who actually gave her the book, and I haven’t (obviously) even read it, i think you on my list know.

Think “job shob”.

Think “how dare you “sit at home””.

Think “how dare you drink beer every night in China”.

Think “How dare you go to china and “sit at home””.

Think “If I all did was “sit at home and do nothing”, then I wonder how I’d pay my bills for one...”

And think other moronic bozo like comments.

And you get the photo. Hehe.

But it’s true.

My Dad once had this to say about drinking beer.

“No-one drinks beer every night!”

(This to a comment of me about “relaxing and drinking beer after work”. Apparently no-one does it. I’m pretty sure Mei Yi Jia, 7-11, and a host of other highly successful convenience stores would disagree with him, but hey, who am I to comment eh. LOL.

And in any case, last I checked, India doesnt even HAVE those stores...)

And about job shob ...well, we’ve gone there.

But it’s funny.

The very people that seemingly encourage creativity are the very ones THAT KILL IT later - - at a later stage in life, and then try and cover it up by saying “we made mistakes! You’re the first kid, so ...”

And then of course, turn around say they never said that (while drinking up, curiously enough in complete and utter contravention of what they themselves said years ago. Ah, but wait. I forgot. All OK for Daddy, but not anyone else apparently).

But those creativity killing Bozo like jobs.

Don’t EVEN get me started.

One of the main reasons I worked the jobs I did was initially they all seemed to give me some leeway in terms of doing things, structuring things etc.

IF there is one thing I cannot, and never will and have done, it is this – being a Bozo following orders and nothing else, and doing BORING ass shit.

No way, Jose.

I’d rather sell door to door if it came to that ...

But either way, workouts?

Well, ONE main reason I love my workouts these days is not so much the manifold and many physical benefits, bro.

It’s the massive boost of CREATIVITY I get from these mini workouts throughout the day, a concept I’ve ranted on and on about, and a concept that I’ve rightfully done so for!

These mini workouts do MORE than get you in great shape.

With all the writing I do, I constantly need inspiration, and I dont get it from Bozo Schofields, thats for sure, hehe.

But my workouts DO it.

They enable me to connect to the INSIDE.

The CORE.

The UNIVERSE.

Ideas FLOW.

I get inflow – more than I was before!

And every time I Do so, I thank my “lucky stars” (though I made my own luck) that I’ve had the good fortune to, at the end of the day, do what I WANT with my own life, and live life on my OWN TERMS.

And that, my friends is something for you to be grateful about too.

Be grateful you have a life worth living. That you’re not in a third world hellhole or worse where getting food to eat is an issue. That you have all your LIMBS intact. That you ... ah, but you get the picture!

And in that spirit, be grateful for these workouts that get you in the best shape of your life!

Man oh man, I know I AM!

And that said, I’m out. Back soon!

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – Be sure to check out our book on CORE training right here – Corrugated Core.

PS #2 – Charles the fomer friend once told me “I write about him creatively”. Well, my friend, so can YOU. So can YOU if you just get off your DUFF and do what I’ve asked you to about a bazillion times. Get rid of teh Bozo Shozo ESL nonsense. MAKE something of yourself. DO something ...ah, but wait. All water off a duck’s back, I know. Heh.

Why I keep my Amazon PRIME membership . . .

Over the past few days I’ve been pestered incessantly by Amazon (UK).

Apparently they want me to “make my VISA card default” to get some 5GBP coupon code etc on some products (and as usual, the products I WANT aren’t eligible for the offer. Hehe).

Ain’t that how it works for the most part, my friend.

Every time you see a discount or coupon or what not – the products you WANT aren’t eligible.

Anyway, thats one reason I keep my own coupons etc applicable to ALL products, including the recently concluded “big 40” birthday SALE I just had, which many of you RESPONDED to.

Sure, there is a minimum “amount” that needs to be purchased.

i.e. getting a 20% discount on a $12 product, for one, doesnt make sense to me and neither would it to any business owner, at least not one with a halfway or even barely functional brain ...

(Believe it or not, one person asked for the discount for just that one product!)

The things we see, live with, and deal with ...

Anyway, Amazon UK has also been incessantly pestering me to sign up for Prime.

I almost accepted. In fact I think I did but then backed out.

Too many of those “all in one” memberships that I keep getting plagued with in my Inbox, and I reject all but ...

Well, Amazon.

I DO have an Amazon prime membership but not in the UK.

And I can use it to get stuff delivered etc for free wherever I want regardless of whether or not I’m in the country myself, which to me makes it worth it (delivery charges are free).

Of course, the products applicable for “free delivery” have reduced in quantity and increased in cost.

OK.

Np.

But more than the Prime Video and all the other “benefits” that come along with it, for me, its about free delivery of products I want, and nothing else really.

And thats why I continue to have “prime” membership on the sites I do and there ain’t a lot of ‘em to be honest.

Now, point of this?

Point is this my friend.

The 0 Excuses SHIP works in much the same way.

There are folks, for instance, who want to buy the book on pull-ups – but “dont have the cash just as yet”.

I get that.

But with a Prime ... ah, excuses me, SHIP membership, remember one thing.

More than the forum, more than increased access to yours truly, more than everything else, it’s FREE digital downloads for ALL our products which really matters, my friend!

You NEVER have to worry about cash being tight or what not.

ONE yearly membership gets you there – access to EVERYTHING we offer digitally at the click of a mouse – and remember, the number of products will only go up, up and UP.

And that, my friend, to me is worth the deal.

Pay ONCE.

Access forever (so long as the membership stays valid and active).

Jump on this NOW.

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – And there is no “try before you buy” on this, or any of our other products, so before you or anyone asks, I said it. Hehe. No refunds either. Once you’re in, you’re IN.

It’s the second email on “Pooja” (Madam as the ladies like to call her, so I am too – how dare I not, hehe – but they call her something quite else and UNPRINTABLE her privately – and still BUY from her – funny how all that works eh).

But anyway ...

The cold, wintry conditons. SLEET. Hail. And so forth ...

Brings to mind two things.

One, a time I wrote to you about a few years ago in 2015 in China (southern China) where it NEVER snows, and yet did that year.

A teensy weensy bit as my little girl would say.

Yet, it was enough to send the denizens of the city I lived into “paraoxyms” of joy while simaltaneously bundling up in about 50 different layers of parks, hoodies, clothign and what not.

Like the Artic freeze had shown up or something.

But either way, yours truly went for his usual climb that day.

I dont miss workouts!

And I still remember how COLD it was, and the frosty conditions, but I enjoyed it.

Came home back in one piece.

Which is more than I can say for the next time.

So the next time, it was winter in 2017. Well, no. Early 2018. A couple of days before my 28th birthday.

It “came out as 28”.

But it’s really a decade more, but folks dont beleive me, and maybe thats why It “came out” the way it did. Heh.

But anyway, it wasn’t just cold that day.

‘twas that nasty BONE CHILLING COLD – with RAIN.

Which made it ten times worse.

Oh my. I still remember doing handstand pushups in a deserted park, and doing pull-ups in those conditions on thick and cold metal bars.

Oh my. I still remember taking my jacket off and I Was wearing shorts of all things

Nothing if not a masochist on occasion I am, hehe.

Anyway, finished my climb(s).

And believe me, my fingers were NUMB to the bone (I had to go home and literally put them under REGULAR temperature water to get feeling back – and believe me, regular temperature was COLD! - yet it felt hot – thats how numb they were!!) ...

And amidst all this, I decided to finish off with fingertip handstand pushups.

Bad idea.

OUCH!

My thumb slipped.

CRACK!

I heard it!

Slipped INTO it’s joint, then out, and then luckily back again.

An immensely painfuly injury, and my first thoughts were “will I be able to celebrate my birthday by writing MORE – and working out MORE?

As it turned out, the cold Corona I held that night in my hand was all the healing it needed, but believe me, it was a NASTY injury.

PAINFUL.

And most would have gone to the doctor. Gianni, an ex student and ex wrestler and Army man told me to do so.

Vincent, my buddy told me that thumb would ALWAYS ache in the winter.

And yet, none ofthat happened.

The next day, I was almost back to normal, doing fingertip work no less!

Sure, I didnt attempt more crazy stunts in the cold and rain.

But there are several lessons to be learnt from all this.

One, to be damned careful when doing fingertip handstand pushups. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, and I’ve even said it in the FAQ, which along with the FAQ on pull-ups is now up for sale on the site.

For some reason I was selling on Amazon, but not on the site, so I rectified that last night.

Now, tons of other lessons there.

But let’s talk Pooja ...

She shows up, yes. I said that before, but I omitted an important part.

Perhaps the most important.

... WHEN no-one else DOES. 

And that, my friend, is another key to success at life, and working out in general.

She shows up in freezing weather. Thunderstorms. Hail, shine, blazing heat, what not.

Much like youc an count on Amazon to deliver no matter what, you can count on Pooja Madam to badger the heck out of you no matter what ...

Pooja Madam . Madam “ji” as they call her either lovingly or mockingly or a combo of the two.

Female brains are a hard thing to decipher, but I think I’ve cracked part of the code. Hehe.

For reasons I’m NOT going to mention here.

Anyway, lesson learnt?

I hope so!

Keep going out there my friend. Keep doing it.

Because, I tell you.

You never know!

You just NEVER, ever know!

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee aka “Michael” aka plenty of other alter’s you haven’t heard about as yet (but the Chinese all know me as Lahoo or Michael, hehe).

PS – A book that is getting an insane amount of attention right about now is the compilation not on pull-ups - - but handstand pushups and shoulder workouts, and rightfully so. Gawd knows why I took so long to have it up for sale here, but it is now – go HERE to check it out! Truly BARNSTORMING!!

PPS - Oh, and pick up "16 Inspirational Fitness Recollections" right HERE. You that LOVE and can't get enough of these emails will LOVE that little compilation. Volume TWO out soon! (yes, I know. So much to do. hehe). 

I’ve written about that before, of course.

GALORE.

And it’s one reason my products are priced HIGH, but thats not the main or only reason by far ...

But what I SHOULD have titled this one is this.

“Idiots that give you “titles” at work but NOT the pay that goes with it”.

(despite you delivering results like they never ever expected).

Por ejempelo, THAT job I mention SO OFTEN and that I dedicated a BOOK to.

And yes, they NEVER in their wildest dreams expected the results they got from me and said so much.

“..... (I’m leaving names out) is very happy with your performance! Most people take at least two weeks to settle in. You didnt, and you just hit eh ground running and brought in MONEY”.

(This from the same boss that believes in “letting people sink or swim” and NOT training his employess (hint – it costs MONEYYYYY, hehe))

(The Name is the boss that I’ve “left out”)

And though they did their best to retract that statment (it was made by a lackey who I often drank with – he was the boss “in theory” but I Reported to the real boss anyway) ... it didnt really work.

Some things just cannot be retracted!

And I just had an idea to write about that on the other site. Hehe. 

I’ve truly written my blogs, emails and books while writing others!

But anyway, I later re-joined that job (be on the outlook for the Second Volume of the 10 Commandments of Successful SALES which details that – so much to do – so little time!) .. BIG mistake.

Big mistake – and based upon some crappy “sh” advice I got from I’ll let you guess who (and that I even more foolishly listened to).

“You got your job back! Yay!”

Meh.

Like who cares.

At a salary LESS (well, marginally) than what they were paying me when I first joined, and a lot less than the raise I deserved, and got.

And halfway through that job I became the assistant VP.

In theory.

My pay?

Didnt increase.

Needless to say, being a bozo doesnt go down well with me. I left.

Much like I did all those years ago with Freddie, where I had the title of “engineer”, but did the job of a MANAGER. 

(True I got paid triple what the other local engineers got paid, so good on Freddie for that. And in all honesty, Freddie was “boudit”. I should NOT have quit that job the way I did!)

(But live and learn, hehe).

My Dad’s often told me “Do the thing first, and they’ll give you the title and money later”.

Well, I Can’t wait for the money Dad.

And these days, most companies (not yours, I know, but not everyone runs their companies based upon loyalty, and truth be told, end of the day, that “loyalty” thing or at least the way your boss does it helps YOU save money too, hehe, and you KNOW it) would just say that, and fire when it comes time for the raise or title, unless they really need yo, and they did back then in THAT job, but of course thought they were “so smart” in making plans to replace me anyway the minute I asked for a raise.

They thought I “didnt know”. 

HA!

Sometimes, IDIOCY shines through.

But titles.

I dont ask for them generally. They’re GIVEN to me anyway.

Why?

Because I DESERVE it.

Mercurial. Flat out brutally honest. Caveman. “El Wolf”.

And any of the other names on that 1119 long list ...

Mr. Handstand pushup, for one.

My wife just gave me the title.

Because I can do them better than almost anyone out there!

I did it – GOT the T shirt.

But if some clown shows up and asks me to do it while never having an intention of giving me the T – shirt ... ah, but we went there did we not?

This whole “Stream of consciousness” rant can be summed up as such.

Rahul Mookerjee doesnt work a job, no matter how much stability it might give him, or not.

IN short I’d rather NOT be a BOZO (not saying those who work jobs are, but employers for the most part want just that these days – mindless bozos who just “listen” and deliver the moon and dont ask for the right pay -- and well - - is it any wonder that he world is the way it is?)

Can’t change the goddamned world tho, as Alonzo said. 

And I ain’t trying to.

But I AM trying to turn YOUR LIFE AROUND in terms of fitness, bro.

And HERE is the system that will do it.

Jump on it NOW. Truly worth it (And the “best damned fitness system MONIKER that comes WITH IT!)

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – Yes, Charles. We gotta keep fighting the GOOD FIGHT – kudos to YOU and the rest of the 0 Excuses faithful for doing so, day in and day out. Keep at it!!

PS #2 - A publisher I once worked with said "Rahul, we'll need a whole library just for YOUR books". And given my ouput, I'll say he was right, hehe. (that was for another site, another venture)

On yelling like a BANSHEE, and more ...

It’s strange, but in my neck of the woods “growing up” when yours truly was “ye small”, he quickly learned something.

Not really, but he “inculcated it” to an extent.

That impotency can always be covered up to an extent by one thing.

Yelling like a banshee.

It’s sad, but I have very little, or any positive memories of my childhood growing up.

And I suspect a lot of us growing up in the 90’s (am I dated? Hehe) feel somewaht the same way, especially if you’re from a dysfunctional family like I am (I like to say WAS hehe)

Everything could be solved by one thing, according to my Dad.

Yelling like a banshee.

It mattered NOT whether you made sense or not.

Might is right. Yell long enougg, and those you can bully will “do” the thing (or so they thought. Hehe).

But it’s funny.

Anytime I remember my father getting into a REAL fight – with other men his size – he ALWAYS backed down.

I still remember an argument over parking where he yelled like a banshee, and the men told him to either “put up or shut up”.

He quietly folded his hands and did the latter.

Literally. And really.

Yours truly and sister (7, 4, I believe) were at the dentist’s .. 

(when all hell broke loose outside, hehe).

Curiously enough my father was right in what he was insisting upon, but the way he did it was the wrong way.

You dont bring a knife to a gunfight, bro.

I remember him getting into one on one tussle in a “road rage” incident.

And ... then nothing happened.

They locked arms like wrasslers, and neither man FOUGHT.

Jesus.

IF that would have happened to me, someone would be in hospital or six feet under, I remember thinking.

And I wasn’t even six at the time.

(in that case, I’d have either broken the guys fingers at the very least, or I’d have pulled out a ROD if I couldn’t do it myself).

OK ..... 

End of rant.

I’m not a violent person, my friend.

Really.

In fact I’ll do all I can to escape from it, as my buddy from the Marines knows.

(but when cornered and when there is truly no CHOICE - watch out. Yours truly "lurking tiger" turns into a hyena - which will do the exact same thing i.e. run when it can, but when cornered, most likely even an African lion wouldn't compare in terms of sheer FEROCITY of it's fightback!) 

Crouching tiger, hidden hyena. LOL

Couple of incidents in China stick out in mind in 2018, one when a dude and his son took pestering me too literally, and they were trying to get me to teach English (for free) when I was working out of all things, and, well, you get the drift!

Even the Chinese told the other dude to piss off, and that dont happen too often when there are foreigners involved, especially not in these hyper nationalistic, jingoistic, chest thumping “we hate foreign devils in general” in China these days. Trust me.

And the other instance when I was out drinking with my buddy, and a few drunken Bozos showed up, and the first thing I told my buddy was “watch my back” (I was sitting with my back towards them)

They were trouble.

I could FEEL it, bro.

I asked my friend to leave.

“Let’s bail, and ... “

HE didn’t/ 

Sure enough, trouble erupted ...

Anyway, point of all this is this.

Yelling like a banshee rarely, if ever does any real good.

Far better to be the knife that cuts deep and silently.

Could be me with my daily emails. Hehe.

Could be me with my daily fitness tips.

But really, no matter what I say, one thing stands out.

IF you dont agree with me, the last thing you’ll find me doing is trying to convert you and certainly NOT in a “yelling” manner.

The nuts who puff and buff in the gym and wax lyrical about the chest press for one.

You won’t hear me trying to convince these idiots of anything.

Some people are better left to their own devices!

But you WILL see me doing the thing and silently as said people slyly and jealously look on.

“Man, I sure wish I could do those!” 

(there's a reason I say handstand pushups will truly make you the ENVY of the preeners, posers, pumpers, toners, weight lifters-shifters, and so forth...)

(that strike a chord with those of you unwilling to admit you’re fat so you can’t do pull-ups?)

I bet ...

How dare I.

I know.

How dare YOU, I should say, NOT get into the best shape of your life ...

Ah, but some things are best left unsaid!

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

That feeling of sheer and utter IMPOTENCY

I’ll never forget all the arguments I had with my Dad in general (Mom too, and to an extent my wife) about ... well, India.

Speaks volumes too about why I dont LIVE there.

But anyway, if there is one way you can sum up the country it is this – unfulfiled potential and FRUSTRATION.

Apathy, perhaps ...

No-one cares!

And while that might be true to an extent in the ROW too, it’s more true in India.

I still remember my Mom mournfully complaining growing up.

“But we have soooo many problems ... “

And truth be told, as we think, so we are. The great Claude Bristol said it, and he was right, and it holds true for countries – companies – individuals – relationships – everything!

Thoughts truly are things, bro.

And In India, apparently throwing trash in the dumpster – or even HAVING one to throw it in is not something “essential”.

Having running hot and cold water 24/7 like in most of the rest of the civilized world?

How dare I, hehe.

Asking for ESSENTIALS like beer, food etc to be delivered to the house?

Food, maybe a little bit.

Anything else, no way Jose.

And if anything is delivered, they’ll show up at insanely early hours and jangle and jingle the doorbell no end, and the doorbell being another thing that Indians in general seem to have a morbid fascination with.

Thats how it is, I remember my Dad angrily yelling at me every time I “dare” to bring these things up.

Hey, let’s be honest.

Some things are BASIC. And in a country that tom toms itself as being an “emerging superpower”, precious few basic things (that you and I take for granted) are available at all in India (let alone be “luxuries”).

It’s thinking in general in India that hasn’t changed.

Perhaps the government, but I’d say the THINKING.

The Chinese were even worse off pre-1980’s.

But their THINKING was changed and modified en masse by the government.

Of course, China ain’t perfect either. Neither is America. The UK. What not.

But certain basic living standards are there everywhere, including from what I hear Ethiopia and recently Sudan.

India, no, and thats why I dont live ... ah, but we went there, did we not. Hehe.

But point is, every time I bring it up?

I’m either the guy who “argues endlessly”.

Or, the idiot to be yelled at (because he’s actually saying something that is TRUE and that the next person can’t do shit about except acknowledge if he was honest enough. Hey, ask anyone. Bottom line is this – anyone that can leave India usually DOES. Unless they’re chained by the ole ball and chain, hehe, or other reasons but really. ALL of my Dad’s brothers done left. My mom’s nephews all left. I did. And ... well .. the list goes on and on and! Except Mom and sis, there are precious few in the family that actually stay there).

And of course, say anything about the place, and out come the flames from people that dont even LIVE there.

Hey, hey, hey.

The sheer IMPOTENCY shines through ...

Anyway, why do I bring this up all of a sudden?

Well, fitness wise lots of guys feel the same way when looking at those “bodies they can never get”.

When they look at dude pumping out pull-ups smoothly like “butter” in the park ...

(I still remember an S.O. of mine wayyyy back inthe day at a pedicure place or something where they said that to her. Trust me, my pull-ups are even smooooooother, hehe).

When they look at REAL men with REAL strength, fighting skills and such ...

Gun skills. (I'm missing that Glock, hehe)

The list goes on and on and on.

But here’s the thing.

Rather than feel impotent, GET OVER IT.

DO the thing.

You might not be able to change a country. Or the (Alonzo “Rahul” speaking, hehe) – “goddamned world”.

But you CAN change your own life. 

It requires two things.

Gumption.

And not being a lazy ass and making excuses.

Just do it, my friend.

If I did it, trust me – so can you!

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee

PS – Last and final warning for the SHIP. The price WILL go up by $200 next year. Consider yourself “alerted” and “Warned” for the umpteenth time, heh.

Not that I have many of either one of the last two categories (well,not as of this moment, hehe).

The Bozo is no doubt itching to know “how many girls asked for my WeChat today”, and truth be told, some did.

I didnt give it to any though.

Yours truly caveman “gets a lot” yes, but he does so in a manner that would confuse most .. but the results count!

But anyway, that ain’t the point.

A long time, back when my wife and myself were still on speaking terms (now it’s “get away from the other person as quick as possible” and make sure to make the other person’s life a living hell if IC an (for her, not me – I just want to be left alone and I am, hehe)) I discussed biz with her.

How much was “coming in”.

Biz costs. Etc etc.

As I would a partner, actually ...

What happened from all these discussions?

A big fat ZERO.

That was when I was just starting out and had plenty of moola in the bank, so she wasn’t making my life hell.

But business wise, she wasn’t giving me any ideas on how to ADVANCE the biz. It was always "oh, we have money, so it'll be there later", and when it wasn't well ... 

Not how life works my friend. 

More to the point though, it ain’t just HER. 

Don’t expect others to understand, my friend.

Dont expect ANYONE to understand simple facts of life and biz such as “you get what you put into it”.

My own cardinal rule (one of them) of doing biz is this.

INVEST back into the biz.

I’ve been following this rule for a few years now and oh boy. You’d think it was day and night, the difference in my results!

Sounds silly that I didnt do it from the get go huh.

But we ALL live and learn, my friend. And for someone thats always been dissuaded from doing his own thing, from “not selling” because “sales people do nothing” (what an idiotic and inane comment that was – speaks tomes as to my family’s thinking on MONEY – I mean, sales brings home the BACON my friend, and more often than not gets to deal with crappy executions etc. Not me, of course, but I’m just sayin’....)

End of the day, everyone I grew up around saw the “here and now”, but the words “do it differently” and “potential for HUGE gains”

Was NOT there in their version of Oxford, or Webster, or what not ...

Until it “happened”, of course. When I wasn’t fit, they said I’d never get fit. When I was, they hemmed and hawed, and never admitted that I was. And so forth. And we’ve all dealt with it, and back to business?

Many other little things which even most so called “Seasoned” businessmen don’t do.

Anyway, this isn’t so much about business as fitness.

I recently (and I wrote about this) received a note from a man – a warrior -whose wife doesnt get it in terms of “training”.

She keeps telling him “not to train” and that he should have stoppe dyears and years ago.

And that he’ll get a heart attack from all the training he does (this to a man that has been doing just that his entire life).

And so forth.

And I’m sure she’s not the only one saying that either, hehe. My own Dad kept telling me “I had a huge belly” (when I did) and that I “overexercised” (I didnt).

Huge belly.

Exercise less, not more?

I give up. And this from a person who hasn’t done a pushup in his entire life most likely, and would not just collapse, but likely have several heart attacks if I put him through ONE minute of what I do in Advanced Hill Training, for one.

So I haven’t, hehe.

But anyway, thats the point.

Do it YOURSELF.

No-one will understand, my friend.

Do it yourself – and enjoy the results YOURSELF.

Because, as Major General Michael once told me.

“YOU did it, Rahul!”

“Now YOU enjoy it!”

(and I did. I was having a few cold ones when he called and told me, hehe. Ah, them days. I miss 'em! )

True indeed my brother. Sage indeed.

Is it any wonder I chose my “English name” to be Michael?

I think not ..

Anyway, enough on that. Those that haven’t taken advantage of the $799 offer for the SHIP – do so now bro. The clock runs out very soon indeed.

Best,

PS – HERE is where you can pick up the best compilation on pull-ups. But remember, keep it to yourself, hehe.

PS #2 – My Dad once asked me if I have “more than one wife”. I still remember him looking at the babes “out of the corner of his eye” when they went to China ... LOL. I best not go there though.

“You only have one as far as we know” ...

LOL!

A customer recently told me that “Anyway my friend I envy you as you seem to have figured out how to live on your own terms and very few men can say that, especially the married ones”.

Yes. I have. So can you, bro – maybe not at “my level”, but in terms of training, business. Oh, YES, you can!

(and for those reading, yes, I WILL continue to live life on my OWN TERMS).

Work SMART – not “hard”!

Nothing against hard work.

In fact it’s required. But there’s something more than hard work that goes into success, my friend. It’s your thinking, and working smart.

Otherwise, and Claude Bristol said this in the Magic of Believing.

If “hard work” was all that was required to attract money, then all the laborers in the world would be multi-millionaires!

That isn’t a verbatim quote, but it’s the sum and substance of what he said.

Now, I Still remember it. And have mentioned it in the 10 Commandments of Successful Sales.

Really speaking, I should say TWENTY or more, and you wll know what I mean when you read the book! 

At THAT JOB.

I had closed a sale and got the payment or something, but the client had gypped us.

He ended up paying us less than we were owed, and our operations team ended up doing MORE.

Of course, and this is mentioned in the book that was one of the reasons that that job didnt work out despite my prodigous (sales, hehe) output there as well.

Ultimately if operations doesn’t back you up with stellar service when selling, then ALL the sales in the world won’t help.

Because your customers will decide your product isn’t worth a crap, and in many cases ours wasn’t then.

Anyway, thats one of the reasons behind my underpromise and over-deliver mantra for this site.

But anyway, the boss had this to say.

“Work smart, not harder” (he was saying this to operations).

He was right. Hehe. Pity he didnt use that reasoning when it came to my own one hour workdays and the results I delivered. More on that at the end of the book, and a prime example of how as a boss NOT to demotivate your highest performers ... big time! 

But anyway.

Work smart, not hard is something I LIVE by.

Dont get me wrong. I put in a lot of hours!

But I dont do what the bozos do.

Thats another reason my family and myself doesnt get along. My Mom and Dad for one have this idea that life is supposed to be a grind in ways you’d never imagine, and that the basics of life aren’t the basics apparently, and thats there is nothing called “standard of life” – it’s only “grovel for a min wage paycheck”.

So be it.

That is their thinking. They’re entitled to it.

My thinking has always been the polar opposite.

As I sit here finishing up another one of those 20,000 “volume one” books (this one will likely extend to four) for another site, the thought came to mind.

(and I can see the readers asking for MORE already. Hehe. "I look forward to more by this author!" was the latest comment I got on one of my fiction novels) ... 

Prodigous output.

And one way I get it done (other than exercise, being motivated etc) is to REPURPOSE.

Why do people have this idea that everything you’ve written has got to be original always?

It doesn’t.

Now sure, ALL of my writing is original. Thats not what I mean.

But you can pull from what you’ve written already. Get ideas. Re-word. Re-write. And believe me, you can pound out BOOKS – both fiction and not that way if you know what you’re doing and have them ORIGINAL too.

Yes.

And yes, all the workouts I give you are original.

But I know how to do it, and therefore my original books at the prodigous rate at which I put ‘em out .. .

And so it is with workouts for me.

I train SMART.

Not hard.

I always have a purpose.

Yes, like Jason Bourne!

“There’s no random. There’s always a purpose, always an objective”

Sure, I WORK HARD - - but I don’t train for hours like a Bozo (unless I’m hiking etc, which is different obviously).

But my sessions RARELY go beyond half an hour these days. 20 minutes mostly.

And I’m in the best shape of my life approaching the age of forty, and my output has never been more.

In case Bozo Schofield is wondering, in all regards. Ugh. And hehe.

And thats what I gotta impart to you today.

Wisdom of the day and indeed a quote for the ages.

Work smart – not HARD!

Best,

PS – Pick up the smartest damn fitness system out there – the 0 Excuses Fitness System – authored by yours truly “smarty pants” and video’d by the lovely Cindy right HERE.

 I said I’d explain a bit on this one in an email prior to this, and now I will.

When you see someone that is either going nowhere in life, or DOWN – and fast – chances are (and no the economy “shonomy” ain’t to blame either, and neither is yuour family, or parents, or friends, or Bozos, or what not. Jimmy up, bro. Take CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE!) it’s either one of two things.

One, the person is in a cushy position of sorts.

Which won’t last forever.

If you’re not going up, you’re going DOWN. Nothing stagnates in this here Universe (other than the Bozos that putrefy and you can smell their skunkiness from a mile, but I digress) ....

And two, and more commonly these days, the 2D’s .

Depression, and DEMOTIVATION.

One feeds upon the other.

Both are caused by each other.

And both breed a third child called “dicking around” i.e. procrastination. Which is just as terrible, to be honest.

Those that dilly and dally go NOWHERE in life, my friend.

You strike while the iron is HOT. NOW.

You write when the urge strikes you. NOW.

You just do it. NOW.

As Napoleon Hill (and I must admit yours truly knew this for a long time!) was fond of saying.

The time will NEVER be right. IF there is something you want to do it – just do it – NOW!

And there in above can be boiled down the THREE main principles of FAILURE and one of success.

There’s more of course.

But that the gist.

And back to demotivation.

You see it all around you, I’m sure.

You might even be affected by it yourself. 

Symptoms include, but are NOT limited to ...

Being “violently aggressive” or otherwise rude and condescending to those that point it out.

Expecting the world on a platter, while doing squat all to MAKE it happen, and ZERO for others.

Doing NOTHING of your own, and depending upon Bozo Shozos for jobs, and going nowhere in life in min wage jobs, and yet be UNWILLING to quit because “who knows what the future holds”. Yeah. Right. I know, for one, that if you continue down this path bro – it’s a path of RUIN – for YOU.

Guilt trips. Agitation. Constant “annoyance and irritation” for no reason whatsoever.

And the list goes on and on and on.

And while there are many things you can do to snap out of this, I promised I’d tell you one thing, so here it is.

One, a kick to the ass (figurative).

And two, MAKE AP LAN!

Get a goal of your own, and work on it.

Without expecting instant results.

Our minds only function at their optimum when they’re faced with solving a problem, and doing (usually what we enjoy).

IF you do the latter, a LOT of your problems will fade away into nothingness, much like the darkness does into dawn daily.

Believe me, I’ve seen it happen for MANY people – and it will happn for you as well.

It has happened for me as well ...

And thats one reason I put out Zero to HERO! - which is a must read in terms of motivation along with Gumption GALORE!

(More Volumes coming out on both these, so stay tuned).

But anyway, my coaching calls go into MORE detail on this as well if you are so inclined, and if not, no problem. Truth be told the above two books - - any OEN Tip in them - - should get you FIRED UP AND READY to go – NOW!

If it doesn’t, you need some serious GLUTENEOUS kicks up the MAXIMUS, hehe.

Last, but not least ... remember the world waits for nobody, my friend.

If you want something you gotta go GET IT – NOW!

Procastination is indeed the “Devil” when it comes to achievement.

So if you’ve been looking into ordering our products, do NOT put thy decision off any more – it might could cost you – quite literally!

And thats it for now.

Back soon.

Best,

Rahul Mookerjee
