This was renaming itself to "shop", almost!
But that shop where I sold green tea and other items (physical items - a much "unnnoticed" part on the 0 Excuses Fitness site but it was THERE) - is deactivated - for now.
If you guys still have an interest in buying green tea etc off this site, let me know and I'll set it up.
But for now, I'm doing it through the following site - www.shristiimports.com. If you want to source anything physical from China or anywhere else - (Bozos and women not included, hehe) - then contact me via that site, and we'll see what we can do.
In the future, the 0 Excuses Fitness products page will also have a link for physical products - Tshirts will be one. Sweatshirts too, as a lot of you have asked!
It will also most likely include a link to my OTHER physical products - tea - coffee - cardammom - spices and so forth.
All of which are doing roaring business right now despite the so called recession.
Truly all about man's thinking!
Anyway, this isn't about any of that.
It's about the much vaunted and superb 0 Excuses Fitness Ship - possibly and probably the very best in fitness memberships out there - bar none.
Truly for the elite of elitest doers ... was that the other way around?
Well, you get my drift.
And until now - what made this membership so worth it?
Well, two things ...
Unlimited access to ALL our products and courses for "one single fee" as it were - as long as your membership stays active, you get access to everything year around, 24/7/365 ...
Second, more access to yours truly.
And third, a form wherein YOU guys can talk to EACH OTHER - remember, it's one thing to seek advice from a teacher, but quite another to compare notes etc with fellow students, benchmark, mark your progress etc.
So those were the three "main" benefits.
But others that I had before - but have temporarily deactivated - well, for one, I had an area where you guys could uplaod your OWN documents (training manuals etc) - and keep them for your perusal.
A "my account" section - although thats back now obviously.
But in the future, actually going forward pretty soon, here are more compelling reasons you'll want to sign up for the membership -
One, for now, physical books aren't included in the Ship membership - because of shipping etc. Although we offer free shipping globally as of now for paperbacks, it's just too tedious to work in a "one price meets all" thing for physical books.
So Ship members - as of now, you're buying them at the regular rates.
But in the future, I plan on offering even more special discounts etc for paperbacks off the site - often times as low as 30-40% which is a steal.
Special coupon codes etc which won't be offered to "regular" members.
Perhaps most importantly, VIDEOS!
That ole bugbear I so hate, hehe, yet do on occasion - when it's warranted, such as the stellar and superb videos I did for the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
By itself, any ONE Of those videos is worth the entire investment of $249.99 you make in the system - but you get five, and two superb books too.
But I haven't done any other videos other than that, apart from a few brief snippets.
But, that might change soon!
The more I look at Lumberjack Fitness for one, the more I think I'll be doing some videos for it - but as part of the Ship membership.
The more I think of the pull-up books, I remember that I never did a workout video either on pull-ups - or Animal Kingdom Workouts.
And all my great courses, actually.
I might rectify that down the road - I likely will.
And while these will likely be a purchase option for regular members too, remember - price.
It makes far more sense to get it all for one price ...
... and if you're part of the Ship, all of it will be freely accessible to you at any time.
Download, redownload, do so as many times as you want - your choice!
Or burn them on CD's, hehe, and keep them with you (a couple of folks have already done that - I dont blame 'em!).
So those are some very , very compelling reasons to sign up for the Ship now.
And last, but not least remember.
The no refunds policy holds very true.
Again, no refunds for whatever reason.
If you think you can sign up, then cry wolf about somethng after getting access to all the goodies, then cancel - nope. It ain't gonna happen.
My payment processors have been informed of this in advance too.
So bear in mind - once you sign up - for either a six month period or one year - once you're in, you're well and truly "in".
And that, my friend is that. Back soon!
PS - I've been getting so many people apeing me on Shitter, yet not getting the results they want. Look, fella, you can ape all you like but you cannot duplicate Mozart or "be me". Just like I can't "be you". That sage fact for whatever reason doesn't quite penetrate for most thinkign "if he does it, I will too!"
Yes, you can.
But not by apeing...
It just makes you look like an ape if you do so. Hehe.
Alright, enough for now. Back soon!
PS #2 - Freddie was right when he said "yo udont work cheap!" all those years ago.
And nothing will be cheap on this or any of my sites.
So price shoppers, I realize you are getting pissed at "why is everything so expensive" and "if it's him, it's a lot of money i'm going to have fork out!" ...
And I can sort of understand where you're coming from.
But the price remains what it is - if you're part of the elitest of the elite, or want to become one?
Well, gotta pay the price first!
Nothing if not a glutton at times as I like to say, hehe. And I am!
YES, the stories I mention on the sales page - right down to the FIGURES - are spot on true, and they'll be the same way for you too if you dot he thing.
But, can't keep burning the candle at both ends and neither would I advise anyone to.
But the occasional indulgence is fine!
One of those for me is chocolate - and pancakes!
The first was an admittedly unhealthy dessert I just had - chocolate cake. But, I had it last year and not after that, so ill be fine!
Second, the pancakes!
And healthy too!
I remember when we (ex girlfriend and me) went up to New York, and visited Vermont. We literally carted back crates of beer - and maple syrup!
Straight from Vermont or Canada (some of it).
The real deal!
And of course, I remember all the all night breakfasts at Shoney's.
My favorite was Waffle House though!
Anyway, what I BE waffling about now, you ask.
("waffling" is Aussie for babbling. Hehe).
I had pancakes tonight, and chose HONEY - natural - instead of maple syrup - and it was great.
Great, great, great!
The GENUINE maple syrup is great too, if you can find it.
Unfortunately a lot of the stuff out there, especially these days is fake, and jampacked with too much sugar, preservatives etc.
And if you're a Simple and Effective Diet reader, you know what I say about sugar possibly being the MOST dangerous thing, even ahead of alchool (which is packed w.sugar) for weight loss!
Anyway, the honey was great.
And at this point, you might think I'm working up to "an alternative to being a lazy ass".
I am, but we'll get to that later.
First, its about ... :an alternative to an even deadlier in my opinion plague (certainly worse than this silly Wu Flu).
The dumbphone addiction that has taken hold of damn near everyone in society and the "video mania" i.e. if it's not on video, people won't "read it"!
I'm the opposite.
If I cannot say it in writing, I wont - and I do NOT watch videos. That much has been made clear, hehe.
YEs, I created some great videos for the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
But thats a different story -s ome of the exercises you "need to watch" to get the form down etc.
And I'll probably create more for my other courses etc depending upon demand.
Anyway, thats the extent of my videoing (no, I dont do You Tube and the other nonsense bar a few snippets).
But thats me!
Dumbphones do the following (amongst many other things) -
They humb your brain to the point of addiction - much like drugs.
Dopamine "drip" x 1000 - and the withdrawal effects are much the same the minute the phone is taken away!
They KILL Creativity.
They WASTE time/
They turn you into a lard ass and lazy phock!
And far, far more.
Dumbphones, my friend are by far the mot useless thing ever invented, and many of my customers dont even have 'em.
I only use 'em for the banking and such ...
And as Charles Mitchell once famously said, "they've got dumbphones out there to addict us all, but they can't cure knee problems for folks that can't do sprints".
And a far better alternative (oh, the Charles comment has been well addresse din an email a while ago) ...
Which people do way too less of.
Makes you more creative, reverses the dumbphone effect, makes you a better writer, forces you to think, expand your mind, vocab, broaden your horizons and much else not mentioned here!
Much more else thats not mentioned here. (just dont read the porno Bozo Schofield is addicted to!)
And that, my friend is the "gyan" for today.
Thats Hindi for "advice".
dont know WHY this "redneck from Texas" or "hombre from El Paso" or any of the other 2000 plus names on the list or "illegal at the border", hehe (nah - really - no!) used that term, but I felt compelled to, so I did. LOL.
And I'm out!
(The Bozo did once make the comment about me being illegal or some rot with his "its' only whites allowed in America" retarded statements, but coming from a Nigerian (most likely) with a fake passport running around in Britain, thats a lot. HA!).
PS - Pimp her e- Rahul's bestselling fitness BOOKS and products!
So, in response to the "I won't eat lunch with my students in China" post the idiots at Linked-In did what I've been thinking the're going to do for a long damn time.
And hey, it's a prime reason why you (if you are on social media, and it's your primary source of income) - need to build your OWN business model that is NOT dependent on social she-dia for one.
Or even any one source of income.
No matter how reliable you think it might be, that ONE source of income might dry up - then what?
No matter how many swoooooooooooooooooooning fans you have on Instagram by showing titties or what not, guess what happens when Insta bans you?
You go back to square zero if you dont have a fallback, and if you're main business isn't structured on a different model.
I've written TOMES on this in the past - recent past - TOMES. Do a search on the blogs, you'll find it!
If they can ban Trump they WILL ban you.
Freakbook censored my posts, and I never got back on there.
I've been saying for a while now LinkedIn - I'm gonna get off on ther eSOMEDAY.
They made the decision easier!
They basically logged me out after their last ruling "deeming" what I posted was blocked in China, and if that was all, I wouldnt care!
But then this -
Your account has been restricted
Why did this happen ?
We have placed a restriction on your account because we detected behavior that appears to violate our Terms of Service.
For more details on the kinds of behaviour that can result in restriction, refer to the "Do's and Don'ts" section of our User Agreement.
What to do if you believe this action was an error.
If you believe your account has been restricted in error, you can submit an appeal by first verifying your identity with us.
Once we verify your government-issued ID, we will review your account to see if it has been restricted in error. If you are eligible, a Customer Support representative will reach out to you to let you know if the account restriction has been lifted.
Even this BS wouldn't matter much.
But, take a look at the bolded last sentence.
ever heard of any social media wanting Goverment issue ID like passports etc for one??? To unblock your account?
I ain't never heard of it. Normally all they ask you to do is verify your email, phone number, and then reset password or something, and thats that, and thats all they need to do. They ain't got no biz with your personal ID!
Unless, of course, it's WeShat.
WeChat for what it's worth is famous for banning accounts and then requiring a "facial" scan to be done and an apology to be tendered in case you're deemed to have fallen foul of their rules (which is why after the new idiotic security law in Hong Kong, I stopped posting on Weshat altogether).
And LinkedIn, I've long said, and people have hemmed and hawed but didnt listen (much like they didnt about the plague from China, and how it spread, but they're listening - NOW!) ... has been quietly pandering to china for a while.
IT's the WORST OF THE LOT!
Ever wonder why Shitter and Freakbook and Shoogle are banned in China, but not Linked-In?
And as of late, they've gotten MORE aggressive about keeping the paid trolls on there, and booting people with a right wing bent of mind, or those that are freedom lovers or what not.
Basically, anything pro China, no matter how false or Tom Tomming is kosher.
And anything even remotely critical of the See Xi Pee?
They'll delete the posts.
Enough times, and theyll block your account - then terminate it.
Well, guess what - you fools at Linked-In.
I aint' interested in supplying you with government issued ID, so that you can supply it to your Chinese masters.
(they probably have it if they care to look, but I ain't gonna make their task easier).
And I sure ain't gonna stop saying it like it is either.
So, 10 k plus followers on Freakbook "in limbo".
7 k plus on Linked-In - gone unless they folow me here (lots do) or I decide to accquisce to Pinked-Out - it aint gonna happen.
Fuck their professional network. I'm getting sick and tired of this lefto pandering mania, and I'm sure you are too!
And in any case, if they banned Trump (well, FB, Youtube And Twitter did) - then I'm in hallowed company. Hehe.
Anyway ...... so much for the idiots that claim "I only do it for the money".
If I did, I'd be wagging my tail every time the social she-dia companies asked me to.
I do the precise opposite.
And no easy workouts!
The best comment, or one of th ebest ones I ever got -
from a patriot, Charles Mitchell....
"Don't ever become a pussy trainer to make more money!"
Never will, bro. Never will. It's about PRINCIPLES AND STICKING TO THEM, and it's that simple!
PS - My grip is SORE, and thats the Gorilla Grip guy saying it! But yeah, check out the book now - you'll love it.
PPS - What else? Ah yes, Advanced Hill Training and Animal Kingdom Workouts - after all the emailing I've been doing on them - lots of people are on those workouts too now. If you haven't gotten on 'em - do so now. but be warned - BRUTAL!
PPS #1 - And if you like BRUTAL x 100?
OH HELL - YEAH!
All the time while growing up, I heard the following from one person or the other - in one way, shape or form.
This was of course most commonly heard in family when I had an issue, or somethign needed to be resolved (per my satisfaction, not what someone else thought was right, and so forth) ...
I heard it directly often.
But I've heard it INDIRECTLY more often - via vibes and feeling.
Ever wonder why a lot of people, my friend - never get to enjoy LIFE like it should - or perhaps dont attain whatever financial goal they deem are important to them?
Because deep down inside "we're nobody" is what drives them - though they might not show it externally.
I've seen it with more people I care to talk about.
It's also a fact that birds of a feather flock together - so if you've got people thinking that way, those you attract to YOU will naturally think that way too.
Except, if you're the free bird that dies when caged, and refuses to be in the first place.
And, if caged against its will it might break its beak getting out - but get out it will!
When confronted with a problem - an annoyance - a customer service related issue - anything - arguments - etc - ANYTHING - you'll never once hear me say the above.
In fact, it wouldn't be a stretch to say I've never thought the above or said it in my LIFE.
PErhaps thats why I'm doing what I am now!
Despite everything else ..
It boggles my mind - always has - just what gives someone the right to not just tell themselves they're nobody (bad enough) - but try and foist it on to others too?
Of course you're a somebody - we all are!
THAT is the foundation that Jeff Bezos built his fortune and Amazon on, though precious few realize it, and those that read this will probably just pass on by without thinking much about it.
Ho hum, they'll say.
But think about it, friend.
It might seem like "you're just one man with no power to change anything".
So were all the greats you see NOW that have changed things beyond imagination.
In many, if not all cases they were "less than nobody" and left for "finished".
Yet, they didnt give up on their ideal - their goals.
Which they didnt necessarily share with the world!
So this thinking, my friend - is what YOU need to change - right NOW - and if you dont have it - well, you may want to do a self analysis, way more people think this way than they'd otherwise think themselves not to if you get my drift.
Personally, if I thought I was a nobody, I wouldn't have gotten the superb results I have in all areas of my life - despite some tremendous lows that most people will never ever see - but the highs made it worth it.
And still do.
But anyway, fitness wise.
Or, the pushup guru par excellence?
Or, the guy with the six pack with real strength everyone envies?
Or, the guy that BETTERS Rahul Mookerjee fitness wise?
You get the photo, friend.
Can you tell me ONE single good reason as to why it's "not possible" or wont happen?
If its logical, I'll listen.
Thing is, there IS NEVER a reason why you aren't a somebody - or if you want to be one, why you couldn't become one - in any area of your life.
Fight against this all you will.
But it's true!
I'll be back.
PS - Lots to share, so much!
How it goes, eh. It's odd I should be thinking of this right about now . . . Thoughts truly do transmute sometimes without "us" meaning for them to!
The Universe my friend, never, ever forgets.
As Emerson rightly said, that compensation for your actions might not come NOW - either good or bad - or in years - or 10 years - but come it will - and come it will with compound interest.
You can find the exact quote in his own flowery language on the blog if you search. I couldn't be bothered to type it out in its entirety here, but the Laws of Compensation are a must read for ALL of you - period.
No matter what you're interested in, or not - period. (Edit - no, I get nothing for bringing it to you)
Maybe a lot, if not all of what is happening TODAY will make sense to YOU when you read it.
Maybe thats why the Sage of Emerson (Edit while putting links in - Concord, I should say) showed up in 2019 during the hill climb in China!
"Youve got work to do, boy!"
True. I had been neglecting it, but anyway, where was I (nah - Ididnt really neglect this ever - it was just not done at the amped up level I am now - and I'm just getting .... started!)
Anyway, where was I.
Friends selling each other out, eh.
Let me refill my cup of tea because this will likely be a long one (no itsn't about the Bozo selling me out in the most inane and yet the most cruel fashion after all I did to help his sorry ass out) ...
Bozo isn't part of the story.
BRB (Be right Back).
Now that I am!
Green tea at my side - let's GO!
At the outset, I'll pen a quote from one of the parties in this ungodly mess/saga.
"500? I can barely do 5!"
So says (lets call R #1 - "the Lion" as it were) a person who had never done Hindu squats before, and after I introduced them to him.
This ain't about fitness.
Its about back at THAT JOB!
Back at that job, when I left it (although tempers were beginning to fray long before, and yours truly doesnt and refuses to back down - boss or no boss, it dont matter to me!) ... or right before, I snagged a client.
Who came from another client (through another client).
Who came through another.
Except that "last" client came through yet another client who I had snagged the year before (when I wasn't working at that company).
Lets call him R #2.
R numero two built a website with THAT company.
I did the sales, handled the deal.
He then introduced another person to the company - with the stipulation that he get 10% of the deal no matter what.
Remember, these were school pals we're talking about (and no, I'm not goin gto name and shame other dude - he ain't involved in this so...)
Then he introduced R numero ONE to me!
Now, as is common with web design projects, I got his stuff done - first, the design.
He was never happy with it. We did, did again, did AGAIN, redid again until we finally hammered out one he was happy with (he was one of those unreasonable clients you hear SO much about these days).
Especially on pinkedout ...
Then we did the (I should say, "we" refers to my company, not THAT company) programming part of it.
His requirements kept increasing, kept increasing, kept increasing.
Anyone thats done any web development will tell you cannot keep recoding until the cows come home with no additional compensation.
Thats like going to a Honda showroom - buying a car - then coming back "because something included wasn't" (because it wasn't) and then attempting to get a whole bunch of new stuff done for the car without paying a dime more.
It dont work that way, my friend. People expect web development, writing, even books to be like that - why?
I dont get it, my friend.
Product like any other (but that attitude is why I stopped doing web deve years ago - I still do it, but now - only if I'm compensated x 1000 UPFRONT for the entire project first, if not, well, no problemo amigo - find another sucka).
At the point the "relationship" was about to fray for the final time, I requested R numbero uno to get involved and calm #2 down - the same thing you'd expect any account manager to do - the same thing I did for that company all the time.
He never did, claiming "thats not how things are done", thats not the deal.
Actually, it WAS an unspoken part of the deal, and he knows it. he would never have made the deal if not.
OK, fair enough.
I then asked him to fork over a bit of his 10% because really - I was getting gouged for above and beyond what I was paid for - WAY above.
And he wouldn't say a word, so I figured hey - lets just get this done and be over with it - but I saw no reason to ask him what he did.
He got back with some whiny BS about "this is not how it's done in Canada" (he was in Canada at the time apparently).
Funnily enough, another Candian client gypped us months ago - just ran away without saying a word! (in this case us "refers to" - you got it - that company!).
But anyway, it all fell apart.
Numero Uno kept blaming me for not doing the job when the truth it was done OVER and beyond his written requirements (yes, I've got PROOF - both financial and otherwise of all this).
He then "set a price" and asked for a refund i.e. ok, I'll give you this much, but you refund this much.
Like telling me "I'll set a price for the book you wrote".
Insane and retarded.
Naturally I refused.
(this was after I told him about number TWO because number two was starting to really, really tick me off with his behavior and implications of "I'm superior because I'm Canadian and the ROW doesnt exist").
All he had to do was pick up the phone and TALK!
Anyway, I told numero uno to get a refund from his "bosom buddy" who sold him out for "10 %".
That part of it was never addressed, apparently, or was it?
What I do know is the following - #1 did all he could to slander me and besmirch my reputation - he kept it up for a while. HE also filed requests with Paypal etc - all roundly and obviously denied, and Jeez, if even Paypal and banks refuse to accept your so called evidence of fraud - hmmm! Something not right!.
I also know that number two got back with "I'm goin gto sue you!"
And with ... "You've destroyed relationships that go back years!"
Without, of course, mentioning the two friendships he sold out FIRST - before ANY of this happened.
Of course, I got blamed for the entire mess, not to say at that company where the lovely boss claimed "it was their client".
It wasnt, and I've got proof (but if he reads this, and has his own version of it, I'm all ears, pal!)
(No, saying "because Im the big boss" doesnt mean proof).
Apparently I was supposed to work on the pittance they were paying me the rest of my life.
Minute they upped it grudgingly (and this is one of the mistakes I mention in the book - bosses - this a must read for YOU in terms of why employees LEAVE) - they expected x 100 more.
Ain't how it works for ME. Never has, never will, never should!
Given the money I Was making for them, you'd think they'd be happy to focus on that other than inanities about "he works from home all the time! He doestn come to office!"
All come full circle hasnt it boss.
Anyway ... the Bozo Schofield saga prompted me to write this.
It's also yet another great reason of why mixing business with pleasure (I wrote a tome on that a few months back, remember?) is NOT and NEVER a good idea - even when it's male friends involved.
And that off my chest - why did I bring this up?
Well, because years later (more than 12 years now) - I have an uncanny feeling numero uno is thinking of ME.
My uncanny gut is always right ...
So, I figured I'd write this in advance.
Anyway, have YOU had any similar experience?
Write back - let me know - I'd love for you to share it!
PS - I'm stirring the pot a bit I know. But hey. I've always found it better my whole life to DO first and ask questions later!
PS #2 - Another pot stirrer of a course - two in fact - three, actually, and the most roundly trolled yet admired?
Along with the 0 Excuses Fitness System ya'll will want to get your mitts on this - NOW!
PPS - This also reminds of me of Charles - but we've been over that one multiple times!
Always the consumnate salesperson and bestselling author and shameless self promoter am I - hence the book, hehe.
PPS #2 - And this is an edit, I normally never do 'em, but I had to here!
.... but I'm HONEST. I dare you to prove me otherwise.
Brutally honest (as opposed to the conniving, THEIVING from multiple people), philandering in butts, MORONIC (profoundly so) and COWARDLY Schofield who didnt have the guts to do what he did to my face, hell, even blocked my WeShat before he started!! What a PANSY! - and amazingly, this sort of person still gets pity and sympahty from the one person he screwed over the MOST i.e. Charles!! Insane!) - - - thats the one thing (and another) even my most brutally honest detractors have never ever been, to the point of utte frustration, hand and head wringing and more been able to accuse me of NOT being.
Anyway, couple things -
The "company" threatened to sue me as well and sent me some silly notice typed up in Microsoft Word by someone I wont mention that just copied and pasted off Google, and used another guy's officious sounding title to cap it off. HA!
I'd have loved for them to do it ...
Naturally, they never did - it would have been the most laughable so called suit ever, and probably get called out for Contempt of Court!
The other thing, and Nazi feminists globally will love this.
My "wife" (interesting how my "girlfriend" got called my wife eh! By Bozos who didnt pause to think) at the time was somewhat blamed for it too.
I've been very verbose about why you shouldn't mix romance and business with no less than two stellar and shining examples before so I wont get into it again here.
But ... her ONLY involvement there was as an "account manager" of sorts from my side, and she did what she was expected to.
OK, end of tale.
A couple of small changes that might not seem like much, but they are given my plans to ramp up x 10000 to the next level!
First, the sign up pop-ups on all the sites should now REDIRECT you to ... another page.
You'll notice you can sign up on that page.
And no, "clever spammers" or the #1 troll in the world the Bozo won't be able to get past it for the most part, because there is a double optin.
For you genuine customers, that means you have to optin - AFTER you sign up!
In other words, you'll get an email (if you dont, check spam etc) AFTER you sign up to activate your subscription, and if you don't, well, nothing doing.
Sorry for the extra step, but I should have done this a long time ago.
Pretty soon, this will be implemented on the contact forms as well.
To stop idiots like the below - (or at least give them food for thought) -
Getting a home loan as a freelancer or contract employee is no easy feat. That’s why I am writing a piece that details what the “self-employed” need to know before they apply for a mortgage. Would you be interested in posting it on your site for your readers if I send it over when I’m done?
Hope to hear from you!
Like, WTF, Bozo Taylor.
I've stopped responding to these fools, but it'll give them more pause for thought, hehe.
Second, and more importantly, the button on some of the popups - for the Ship - wasn't working.
It is now, and should redirect you to the Ship page, if not, let me know!
And that, bro is that.
PS - The best and most trolled course on pull-ups that gives you results beyond your wildest dreams - is - HERE!
Picture this, my friend.
A guy that pays the bills around the house - 90% of them.
A girl that "chips in when she can" - and even then she's constantly moaning, groaning, and bitching up a storm about money.
A guy that "either by hook or crook" does half of the dishes, or at least unloading the dishwasher etc as a "job" while the girl who does it "when she wants to".
A guy that gets NO benefits around the house other than what the Nazi feminist woman "wants".
(or, that she has no choice over). (The ones she DOES? She'll make sure to make his life hell "until he pays for it in one way or the other" - except when the shoe is on the other foot i.e. HE wants the same? Nothing doing! "Those big bad men! Wail! They torture us")
And of course, anyting the guys wants - needs - anything at all - last priority, if at all!
It was a great customer indeed that made the comment about women being windup artists, and NOTHING MORE in the grand scheme of things.
That might sound harsh, but think about all the nasty and incorrect things women say about MEN?
Anyway - back to it -
A guy that is constantly working to improve his life - while a woman who does NOTHING to improve hers, but bitches up a storm about "it being the guy's fault" all the time.
A guy that is supposed to bring home the bacon, and DOES - and a woman that ...well, she's a "Chinese or Korean or American or American Australian" soap opera fanatic - and a woman that is supported by other Nazi feminist women and cucked men in doing so.
And of course, a woman that will threaten to stop doing her share of the chores (which equates to a big fat ONE i.e. cooking as an example) at the slighest hint of "disobedience".
This, my friend, is the scene in most Nazi feminist dominated households, except ...
... more and more men - and WOMEN are waking up to it!
And not all of the men living in said households are cucks.
Some are very vehemently NOT.
And therefore ...
I might not agree with Charles on a lot of things. (the friend).
But he was dead on right when he told his girl the other night who was bitching about "his romantic entanglements and how she didnt agree with 'em" (like someone asked her).
"Look, this guy is here on his own! It''s none of your damn business!"
And he was right. No-one asked for her silly opinion on it.
He was right too in that he didnt get into the right wrong BS part of it, when truth be told, sometimes, there "is no right and wrong" because you look at the overall situation, not the idiotic blame game these women in general play!
And a girl who Chuck himself once told me "she doesnt do SHYT around the house" (basically the same thing as the situation above).
And a girl (the one in the situation above) who does everything possible to irritate, annoy, delay, postpone, put off what has to be done, make the guy do WAY more than his fair share etc . . .
And of course, Chuck gets routinely blamed for "mistreating" her when she probably does more than her fair share of it too in one way or the other.
The shoe is always on their foot, it seems!
Anyway, did this strike a chord, my friend?
Yours truly has plenty of experience in all this - not the being cucked part, because I never was, and refuse to be.
No matter what.
But, I've got plenty of experience dealing with Nazi feminists, and can help YOU - and I know a lot of YOU are dealing with way worse than what I've mentioned above.
I can help YOU get past all of this - wait for the book on it. Whenever it comes, along with all the rest of the "to be released" books.
Over the last couple of days, I've been busy dealing with Amazon.
If it ain't one thing it's the other.
Then, software has stopped installing on the lovely laptop I have.
If it ain't one thing, it's the other!
And so ... again, books on hold "for now".
But anyway, fitness wise, there is a lot to learn HERE.
(we've been redoing the look of the site, newsletter functions etc a little as well).
Anyway, then they wonder why "men leave".
And the idiots call those that are smart "deserters".
Until, of course they're Jeff Bezos or the like, and then of course "anything they do is acceptable including a harem right in front of them".
Pathetic it's come to this, hehe, but I just told you rule numero uno in terms of dealing with all this very succesfully if you can spot it!
And I'll be back.
PS - Ever notice that Nazi feminists NEVER call women out for cheating?
Married women cheating on their husbands - cuckolding them with yours truly - I told other women about it, and the reply?
"So what! Women can do it!"
And men cant.
I gotta say this.
I never expected this from Amazon, a company I've roundly praised up and down as being the most reliable ever.
I've gone on record many times saying that if Amazon says something - come rain, hail, shine, or the plague from China, it will be DONE.
Yet, over the last few days, Amazon has disappointed me in a way I never thought it would.
They aren't alone by a long shot. Plenty of other companies have too.
But I never expected this from Amazon, and much like Bozo Schofield stabbing me in the back after I helped him out numerous times, THIS is what hurts the most - I have been probably one of the most vocal supporters of Amazon thus far and they do this to me.
Two days ago ,and I mentioned this in another email, a delivery guy marked an order as delivered when it never was.
I waited for it to show up. It never did.
After getting on live chat with Amazon, within 5 minutes it showed up.
Today, they were supposed to pick up a return.
They promised they'd do it by evening.
They never did.
A couple of hours before the deadline, I contacted them.
Amazingly enough, they got back to me with "you canceled the pickup!"
And they continued in this vein for HOURS.
When I asked them to email me the chat transcript so I could escalate it to a higher "level", they put off doing that for AGES.
It's only now after damn near the entire evening wasted that I have the email.
And still, they did not email me ALL of it.
First it was "we can't email you" - then it was "we can't email all of it" (which is not on given ... I've got tons of transcripts emailed to me within a moment's notice of asking).
Then after they stopped blaming me because I refused to accept blame for something I did NOT do?
(I mean, why would i??? I scheduled the damned pickup, why would I cancel)?
Then they claimed it was a "tech error".
They NEVER once got around to admitting their real problem ie their delivery guy messed up. For some reason, the customer is no longer king at Amazon - the delivery guys are!
And it's at their whims and caprices that orders either get delivered, or dont - and if they dont, they get marked as delivered anyway.
The customer gets blamed for canceling pickups when the delivery person was too damn lazy to show up ...
Amazon, for some reason, NEVER wants to blame the delivery guys, which to me is inexplicable. I mean, arent the paying customers the ones that count?
Same thing for book reviews.
They allow Bozo Schofields to post reviews for books the Bozo never read or bought . . . ANYONE can regardless of whether they bought the book or not.
Inexplicable, and back to the "everyone is having problems now" BS?
Hell, I understand problems.
I deal with plenty myself, but this dishonesty from a company like Amazon, refusing to honor a deal and refund my money - refusing to "Compensate" me for all the hours spent with their profoundly usless customer service who specializes in disconnecting me at every turn and then getting another guy or gal on the line that doenst even know what the issue - and most of all, flat out refuse to do what Amazon is famous for?
None of this takes anything away from anything I've ever said about Jeff Bezos.
The man is a phenom.
Yet, many dont do it, but he's stepping down from the position of CEO later on this year.
And I guess it's all already going to the dogs.
Anyway, it is what it is.
No-one is bigger than the Universe which sees all.
And Amazon isn't "bigger" either.
Maybe customer service have been told that insulting customers and blaming them while Tom Tomming their delivery and other stuff is the way to go.
So be it, if they think thats the right thing to do.
And unless this resolves itself and they eventually do fix it (I still have not given up hope), it's the last you'll hear me praising Amazon.
I'll still do biz with them - WHEN ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
And that my friend is that.
I dont know if they realized it, but they just lost a most valuable customer - and one of their biggest supporters.
Drop in the ocean?
Yet, my friend, they all count.
They all count!
And I'm out.
PS - As of now, we're still doing paperbacks through Amazon, and that wont change for a few months most likely, so if you want to order paperbacks - by all means do so - just email me your address too please. (since the form doesnt allow entry of addresses for now). Thank you!
Lets talk about this in a different manner, today, and bring up what Charles, the former friend oddly enough had to say about the Bozo Schofield saga in 2020.
Which to be honest I dont know why he got into in the first place knowing what Bozo did and my thoughts on it ...
But get into it he did anyway, which often makes me wonder until this day if he had some ulterior motives himself on it.
After all, for a person who once famously claimed to others "I was jealous of him making it in China" (which given he's a dancing monkey and claims to love the "job" is an utterly inane claim to be honest - why the hell would I be jealous of someone like that who himself said with respect to a business argument we had and his China tom tomming "I was always zero, and I'm zero now, so I didnt lose anything!" - which to me is the most loser like comment anyone could make) ...
(in short, he never made it anywhere, and never tried, so I dont know why I'd be jealous of him. I'm still not, and still maintain he's a good persona overall).
But anyway, the Bozo.
Chuck once told me "you blocked him so I'm passing on the message".
Now, I've gone over how stupid this is before, so lets focus on the topic at hand.
My eventual and very "smackdown like response", which hasn't even started to be honest.
In 2016, I helped the Bozo and he turned around and brutally trolled me - badgered my business accquantinces who I trusted him enough then to introduce - did all he could to be a pest - pestered women - kept up on his paedophile rants - destroyed people's lives - and so forth.
With no provocation from me.
I did nothing. OK, whatever.
He continued, until he got thrown out of the Phillippines, probably put in a looney tune bin and according to Charles, didnt have a phone for a while.
In 2020, he reinstated his contact with a wimpy "I'm sorry".
He obviously wasn't. I said it. I left it at that.
His attacks on me were so ferocious that for a while again - I did nothing.
I mean, why?
Unprovoked again, and his so called friend Charles did nothing to stop it. If anything, it seemed he was encouraging the Bozo, only bringing up HIS side of the story, which is inexplicable given what the Bozo did to HIM.
But anyway, I drew a line.
And in 2020, I attacked the Bozo back with greater severity than I ever have.
Paedophile like Bozo deserve NO mercy, apart from everything else he's done - and I'm only now starting to take names and kick ass in that regard.
He responded with?
He tried bringing my business down - he tried attacking my family - he tried doing ALL he could.
Every time he was in a bad mood, he'd attack me.
The true bully!
And then I counter attacked.
The sleeping giant woke up.
Therefore, the frenetic stream of "review" Bozo left on Amazon in 2020, which was revealed to me in a dream two nights ago.
You can tell from reading some of that he was at his wits end.
Then, he recovered.
Got even meaner.
Yours truly smacked down ever harder.
He's been not just called out, but made FAMOUS in many regards.
And as the two week hiatus continues, I have to wonder.
He's tried bringing the sites down, he's tried overwhelming internet defenses and such, and they've all failed, but I can promise you this - either online or otherwise, I WILL use force x 10000 to attack this fucker, because he's the ONE person on the planet that DESERVES IT. The only one I know!
Now, workout wise?
Same thing applies!
If you're faced with particularly stubborn fat around the waist, my friend, obliques or what not - you ATTACK x 10.
Wanna really get those BARNSTORMING shoulders - then attack with workouts designed to OVERWHELM anything thrown at it in the other regard!
The compilation contains part ONE and TWO (progressionss, I should say) of the handstand pushup routines/books, I haven't put #3 in there because it's too advanced I feel.
I may down the road ...
If you REALLY want to work them lower abs?
You hit that fat in SO MANY ways, and all so brutally that it has NO choice but to back down or else!
And that, my friend is how I live life, workout, and everything else, and in my view, so should you.
I'll be back!
I was not going to write about this, my friend. I thought about doing so this morning, but I thought better not to.
Yet, I have to.
It's just ....
It's one of those situations - rare situations, but it's there - where BOTH parties have a valid viewpoint somewhere in there, there's layers and layers upon complexity and more.
The Holocaust. The Balfour Declaration a lot of people dont know about that created chaos "later down the road" and much else ...
(A lot of these "declarations" - much like the Simla Pact in India, which the Chinese never officially recognized - and led to ... TIBET! ... I gotta say, that messes things up even more).
As of now, I dont know - the only thing I hope for is PEACE.
Which of course given the contentious history between these two is not likely to happen anytime soon.
But the way it's escalating, with everything going on across the globe?
With global partners involved (and of course ... CHINA! China doesnt consider Hamas to be a terrorist organization, while they themselves subjugate their Muslim population beyond belief. IRONY - HYPOCRISY!) everywhere ... this thing could rapidly spiral out of control.
With no President Trump to broker peace like he did last year, the thing only risks getting out of hand.
Iran. China. Palestine. And of course, Israel and their supporters ...
Personally, if I were asked to mediate hypothetically speaking?
Man, it would be a TOUGH ONE!
But the things we ALL need to take a stance on -
One, known terrorist organizatins cannot be allowed to lead a country. So I think, at least.
Two, there must be PEACE.
Three, civilians must be left out of it - which is impossible, I know.
Fourth, a lot of people are talking about Israel's "inappropriate use of escalation given it's clearly the stronger one in the battle" (like a lion and deer in a cage fight).
Thing is though, if terrorists lob rockets into your populated area repeatedly, sometimes you HAVE To respond like that .
Look at the Bozo Schofield saga for one.
He's calmed down over the past few weeks.
Before that - even though I could really take it to him in all regards and probably will when I See him, I never did.
And you see how he responded.
Bullies and attackers must be brought down is my view - by any means necessary.
Liberal Biden style "wishy washiness" isn't going to solve anything.
Sometimes, you take the tough decisions.
And Hamas using kids etc as shields and claiming :they have no choice isn't exactly something I support either.
But it breaks my heart nonetheless to see the chaos on both sides, especially civilian deaths and the rapidly escalating civil war like situation in a few Israeli towns and so forth.
That is what we all want, or should want, anyway ...
Anyway, it's a complex issue.
If y'all have any thoughts on it - write back and let me know!
And that, my friend is that.
On a more peaceful note, remember this - the LAST copy of Fast and Furious Fitness - The Collector's Edition is sitting here - ready for the taking.
Oddly enough, the rest all sold out within a week.
Maybe the Universe wants me to keep this last one, hehe.
So, see how it goes!
PS - Make love, not war? I'd say do pushups, don't fight! Hehe.
Words, my friend - make a difference!
Tony Robbins keeps saying this in his online and other "classes" i.e. they have the power to penetrate the conscious.
He keeps repeating it too, for good reason, so the Bozos "get it".
I'd go a step further and say words and the pictures they create ... penetrate DEEP DOWN to the subconscious, and what Robbins is saying is step #1 yes.
But anyway, this isn't about the subconcsious.
What I said in terms of my play on words?
Well, I said business person. Not "man or woman or third or fourth or fifth gender"
Success, brah, can be had by ANYONE if they do the right things!
If they learn from people that have been there and done that.
And not all of us "had people to learn from" - a lot of us failed miserably multiple times, still do, figure out how to do things on the fly, make tough business and financial decisions, and ... well, it's all part of the curve.
Combine the above with persistence, and you'll have a select bunch of doers who make it - in any age, era or economy.
And my favorite business person by far?
We know that.
Bootstrapped, built from the ground up, in an era where government help etc was far less liberal than it is now, a man that was instrumental in making America and it's economy a FORCE On the planet to be reckoned with - a man universally admired - a man that until 43 or so was written off completely, and so forth ...
A man whose company influenced even the Wars (in terms of the cars they built both in the US and Germany!).
But after that, we have many choices.
Steve Jobs. Donald Trump. Elon Musk. And so forth.
All illuminaries in their own right!
But I'd choose the one man most people don't talk about.
And a company most idiots love to hate.
This morning, I heard my wife complain about it again.
Or someone was, at any rate ... Hehe. Amazon is one of those companies people love to bitch about.
I cannot for the life of me understand why - if there is ONE company I will do business with, and trust over all - it's Amazon - and it's because of Bezos's policy of putting the customer first - and innovating! Until what is new is no longer "considered new" ...
As Bezos himself said, when people yawn about "a new invention" that is when you know it's an useful one!!
And when it's made an impact.
Lots of people might be surprised I won't choose Trump here, but dont get me wrong - I love Trump! Great guy, warrior, and everything, but purely business?
JEFF BEZOS IS THE MAN.
He has NO peer in the modern day world.
A PHENOM bar NONE.
Indeed, he's on par with Ford in many ways.
Lots of people aren't well accquainted with Bezos's struggles because he doesn't wax lyrical about 'em.
Man of few words.
Maybe in future dispatches I'll cover some ...
Its there, if you can find it!
But for now, he built a business up from scratch and is now richer than Croesus - and I respect that.
No fall backs, no excuses, no help, no aid, no nothing ...
Same thing with my fitness programs, my friend.
They require you to get down to brass tacks - and DO.
They're not for sissies, wusses, pansies, Mama's boys and so forth.
You'll need to put in the work.
Do things differntly. LEarn new ways of working out and even breathing on the fly.
And many other things.
All a parallel to what you'd do in terms of becoming a successful business person.
And that, my friend is that. Back soon!
PS - If you ain't checked out Pushup Central - well, do so now - and GET the course - truly the best ever, and selling like hotcakes right now, so yes, the price WILL go UP. Get this now, my friend. The best ever!
This post is probably going to set me for a chorus of "A ................. hole!"
But thats nothing new.
So be it.
Coz, some things - -
Behold the following -
In January of this year, I had a breakdown in my mental health and admitted myself to a psychiatric ward.
It wasn’t what I wanted to do, but it was necessary as I had been struggling with a multitude of stressful events over the previous few months:
Moving house (twice!)
Coping with family illnesses
Overload of client work
Furnishing a new flat
Managing with the pandemic restrictions
Dispute with a neighbour
With all these events, it's no wonder that it tipped me over the edge and I needed help.
With hindsight, I can see that one of the patterns I've noticed most in my life and business is my tendency to be a people pleaser.
With the help of my transformational life coach, I've begun to see myself in a new light and will be putting myself first as the number 1 person I need to be kind to.
What this means is a recalibration of my life and my priorities. I won't be chasing after validation from other people - I already am enough. I believe I have a lot to offer yet in life and it's time I took the opportunities to become the best version of me possible.
I'm looking to surround myself with people who support me in that goal.
Could you be one of those people?
Now, of course this post got a multitude of likes etc .... and the usual "I'm soooooooooooo sorry" and "No, dahhhllllinnnnn, you're SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO brave!" idiotic comments.
(Ever wondered why sometimes posts that make sense get zero engagement (seemingly, but a lot of VIEWS, so people are reading, hehe) while the wackjobs hog the attention?
In this case, she checked herself in ...
Worry not, my friend.
The bottom line counts, not appearances. Do it right, and YOU will be the one with the better, far better bottom line - but anyway, this ain't about "how to post on social media".).
To let you know as well, back in the day, I had a girlfriend who'd at the slighest hint threaten to "commit suicide" or check herself into the looney tune bin.
I remember a time in NY where I was bitching about the "hard disk" of the computer not showing up along with the damned monitor (we moved from the South to the Communist Paradise of NY State) and were in one of those "apartment style motels" and I was setting the damn compute rup for a week for whatever reason (I think we woul dtake that long to figure out our final apartment? Dont know, can't quite recall why!).
I still remember my ex getting pissed during the argument, driving off in a huff in a white rental Toyota.
"I'm going to drive this over the edge"
Not that I thought she would, but I called the good ole men in blue, and soon enough, a fine gentleman - an older guy showed up.
"I've got a daughter just like that", he grinned.
And told me to "calm down" and ...well, women will be women!
she drove back, he did the usual "calm down" thing and left.
As I read about the Commies in California (at an Univ no less) wanting to defund the police, and Mike Pompeo's Twitter note on it, I let my feelings be known in NO uncertain terms.
"Why does it not surprise me that the defund police shouts are loudest in the Socialist Republic of Seattle and the Communist Paradise of Californa! Then these people scream about increasing crime the next day!
(for background, apparently the leftist buffoons at the University of California felt that "campus police stressed them out due to past experience or some bullshit" ... )
Anyway, the lovely ex used to do this quite a lot, including "check herself into the looney tune bin on occasion", because, didnt you know?
"I've HADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD it!"
For reasons that you and I would LAUGH At.
Of course, she had "mental problems" and I was insensitive.
People that don't help themselves are just LOSERS my friend. Period. Yes, there are some times when people need help - many times, but by and large, folks need to toughen up!
(not to mention, these idiots dont know how lucky they are that they can call 9-11 and someone will help 'em when they dont need it. In China, they'll LAUGH in your face. In India, they might not even answer the damn phone, hehe. In fact, the cops won't be shy about telling you that either!)
(And before the left starts - yes, I know this isn't about India, but it IS about keeping it real)
And this plague is bringing that home in more ways than one.
Anyway, these reasons ...
Moving house (twice!)
Rahul - Boo hoo! I've had to move FOUR times at one point within the period of six months in CHina, all by myself ... big friggin deal.
Coping with family illnesses
Rahul - well, checking yourself into the looney tune bin doesnt help them? It just puts YOU in a place where you can kid yourself "I'm recovering" but in reality you know you're HIDING from the probems you oughta face!
Overload of client work
Rahul - I swear, these people are idiots of the grandest order. When they dont find work, they complain. When they find "too much", they bitch about being stressed out. Or, they'll bitch about the pay. Or something.
I mean, get real!
Rahul - I won't even get into THAT.
Furnishing a new flat
Rahul - Such a pity!
Rahul - My word! Christmas! How dare it!!!
Managing with the pandemic restrictions
Rahul - Honey, you don't know the first or the first LETTER of the word Restriction x 100!
Dispute with a neighbour
Rahul - Again, cry me a fucking river . . .
I gotta say - WHAT is the world coming to with these panderers running supreme everywhere . . .
I mean yes, and again, there are some cases in which people genuinely need help.
Oddly enough in those cases those same people won't get it (Bozo Schofield for one - now that boy needs some serious, serious shrink attention! Thats a tough case tho!).
But really, sac up and grow a pair is what I'd tell this lady.
Of course, that would get me nowhere in the silly woe betide me thread she started, so I'm saying it here.
Folks- man up - and do so NOW.
And workouts like I advocate will play a huge, huge role in getting you there.
Here is where you can get on 'em - 0 Excuses Fitness Products.
I'll be back!
PS - Remember, Ship membership gets YOU free access - lifetime access to everything digitally so long as your membership stays active and valid.
PPS - Not to mention this lady left out the prime thing to include in any social media post i.e. what can i do for YOU - as opposed to "you do this for me", but then again, these whinging cry babies types do - well, just that! Me, me, me!
(Curiously enough one of the latest unsubscribes was from a me.com address, hehe).
Not to mention she starts off with "I didnt want to, but... "
You didnt want to.
Like anyone "would want"!
Then again, she called them and got herself checked it so she did want!
Ah, the EXCUSES! PATHETIC!
Chuck made the comment about the Bozo eating all his food, making a mess, and a pest of himself (and drinking all his beer for which he got thrown out of Chuck's beer house as well in his underwear, of course) .. .
"He eats all my food, he drinks all my beer!" was the refrain.
Of course, in that case it was ... WARRANTED.
But anyway, this brings to mind something else.
I remember growing up in India, there used to be a washerwoman and their family - with a strapping young lad of about 23 or so.
My family never really liked them.
Mom used to choose another washerwoman ...
But, she often made teh following comment about dude.
"He's so big and fat! He must be eating all their food!"
Which thinking about it ...
Maybe he was a bit fat, but certainly not as obese as I got at a certain stage, and certainly NOT as obese as certain women get if you get my drift.
But anyway ... I remember thinking that was a silly comment.
I mean, dude was working - and he can't even EAT?
Then of course, years later, I often heard this from another lovely lady if you get my drift.
In a direct or indirect manner, when it was no warranted.
Blame games are what Nazi feminists love, my friend, and you should avoid them like the plague - more in the book.
But sometimes they are so ridiculous and NOT true ... that ....
I swear, if I tell you some of the nasty things I get accused of all the time, it reminds me of ...
Well, Wei Jia Jiang from CBS and President Trump.
Jiang constantly asked him questions in what even I thought was a MEAN, Nazi feminist tone!
Right down to her accusatory eyes.
And Trump rightly called her - and the media out for being hostile and told them to play nice.
Which of course, the Bozos didnt like!
Ever notice why a lot of reporters, especially those that ask SNARKY questions are female?
But anyway, women!
Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em, except I've perfected the art of the latter, because you live with them, and they turn into Nazi feminists (I'm sure there's SOME good women out there - I'm sure YOURS is the exception to the rule, yada, nada, schnada. I sure hope so, bro!).
B/C I ain't seen an exception to this rule in my very storied life so far!
I've had a girl in China once exhort me "not to eat rice" at night because I'll get fat.
Then I had one tell me to eat "double dinners" (way back in the day during THOSE days when I was talking about food portions in China etc, of course, if it led up to something? She'd probably swing the other way!).
it's just retarded, my friend. Retarded.
Anyway, I gotta tell you ...
The ONE course you can buy to piss the Nazi feminists off, more than all my others is Animal Kingdom Workouts.
It'll make you hungry as a horse, even more so than the rest of what I promote.
Speaking of which, I'm off to gorge on some EGGS, hehe.
PS - I'll give you TWO , or maybe ONE guess to guess whose got WEIGHT PROBLEMS, hehe.
PS #2 - But of course! You can't body shame women, but you can call MEN all the nasty names you can. I know. I know.
... but guess what, I could care less, and those names WILL be called if a woman deserves it.
I've always been a "wear his heart on his sleeve" sort of dude.
I've never been one to accept the status quo.
I've never been one to "accept" life's reverse gear - no matter what.
And perhaps it's because of all these attributes, and many more that I've had an existence (thus far) and experiences (thus far) that most wouldn't in several lifetimes.
The ups, the downs, all uncannily reminds me of my favorite author Napoleon Hill, to whose life mine seems to most closely resemble in most regards, along with Donald Trump's bar the "public part of it" and as far as I'm concerned, thats perfectly fine by me.
Both great examples!
But I've always been a yes or no guy too.
Like it or don't!
No "in between".
And what I cannot understand over the past few years, or maybe I can, is the APATHY that is slowly taking root and STRANGLING people globally.
Some countries, the people are even more apathetic than the others.
China to an extent.
India -big time. And it's getting bad in the US too in terms of people "not caring about anything".
My friend, I dont know if you've noticed this, but apathy and fear?
Was exactly how the Nazi movement took hold, and it's precisely how any dictator CONTROLS!
The people either don't care , or are too scared to speak out, or a combo therein ...
And both, to me are toxic.
Problems stay unaddressed. Progress don't happen either on a personal or other level. Nothing really "moves" or happens. (I mean, if one doesnt care, then ...)
I've been noticing this a lot with my social she-dia posts where people "stay away" because it's controversial, some of it, but the "views" etc are through the roof.
People come to my social media stuff, and say "yes, he's right".
But, for some reason, they dont feel comfortable saying just that in public despite yours truly being happy to be the nail that sticks out!
Anyway, I dont get it. Really.
If you wanna say something - say it!
And in terms of this list, though I must say this is a very responsive list - so I'll say, a few other lists I have ...
I keep telling people on another business list of mine this - if you'v ebeen on the list for more than 5 years, haven't bought a product, haven't read an email or the bare minimum, and so forth ...well, WHY are you on it?
Of course, with an especially apathetic list like that one (though the biz vertical in that case has got something to do with it), I just cull folks personally.
No sense keeping the dead wood on.
But really, I'd rather you, or anyone be more than a bump on a log when you read these emails, my friend.
If you like 'em, say so.
If you hate 'em, say so!
Same thing with reviews etc, I cannot remember the number of times I've asked people to leave reviews pro-actively, but they "forget to", or just omit it (Which is fine, I get it ... I'm not the best in terms of that either).
But I don't know, the apathy is STUNNING - especially when our freedoms are globally being taken away step by step, and NO-ONE seems to care, in some countries more so than others ...
Anyway, write back - and let me know what you think on that one!
I'll be back!
PS - In terms of a "different kind of move", constipation, IBS etc - all problems I'm very familiar with myself have all shot through the roof during the current Plague. People are sitting and doing NOTHING.
I dont advocate this at all, as you know, but if you gotta sit, at least do it the way taught in Isometric and Flexibility Training.
LOTS of your problems will disappear. Try it, I'm telling ya!
