I call it an ability, because I truly believe we ALL have the powers to craft, and create our own futures - lives - everything. 

And I often shake my head in wonderment, of course, at the idiots and morons who are "too busy at work" to create any relationships, talk to people, anything - even basic courtesy - while all the while whiling away their time on bozo like phones and soaps, and so forth. 

"No, no, no! I'm really too busy". 

Even if this were true, it doesnt negate the need to be a human being my friend. 

And reach "back out" to folks who reach out to you ... 

There's too many in that category, I must say - you email people, no reply, you talk to people, no reply, you send them messages, no reply!  

They probably think differently. 

Which is great, but ... the rules have NOT changed, friend, no matter how much you might have given up or think they have. 

Anyway, my second thought? 

What "after their busy life halts" - or when it ultimately will? 

That wheel WILL Stop turning one day. 

Thats life!

When all of it's taken away, can YOU stand on your own?  

And believe me, the answer to this lies in the answer to the following question. 

CREATION. 

Can you create something out of nothing? 

i.e. your ability to create - how much do you nurture and PRACTICE this abiity daily? 

If you're like most people, you're creating nothing daily - despite maybe even consciously trying to. 

IT ain't just about writing either. 

It's about the ability to create businesses on the fly, for instance out of nothing. 

0 Excuses Fitness my friend, was born out of an idea I got in September 2017, I think. 

The earlier (this) site? 

An idea I got in 2012!

My other businesses? 

Ditto! 

But why just writing related? 

Lets take a look at my GREEN TEA related business - or my trading - or a few others. 

I never imagined in my wildest dreams I'd be sitting here in China trading green tea TODAY - or wherever I may "sit" or roam". 

It just happened - I sowed a seed "without thinking about it", almost, and it happened!

THAT is what I'm talking about? 

Are you going to be the one that looks for opportunity EVERYWHERE, so you can create, almost on the fly? 

I believe THIS my friend is the single most, along with peristence and vision, skill an entrpreneur or indeed human being must have. 

To create things - On the fly!

"Your ability to create". 

Its also one reason I never worry about the future, and never have. 

Because no matter what happens, I'll still be able to CREATE, and how!

So should you, my friend, so should you. 

Good news, we can ALL Do it - if you learn how

And even if you dont want to, fitness, my friend is an absolute must, you know this. 

And the abiity to workout on the fly, equipment or not, gym or not, weights or not, anything or not - is something invaluable, except most people dont know how. 

Learn how to. 

Then do it!

Start TODAY.

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

Charles Mitchell, a customer of mine once made the following comment about learning of my "love" - and great aptitude for Math. 

(remember, walking in drunk for exams, acing them all, hehe) 

(that's a TRUE Tale!) 

(as most of mine are) 

"If you wrote a book on Math (or maybe he said Calculus) I'd buy it too!" 

Hehe. 

Perhaps he would. 

But I dont have any plans to become Professor Rahul, despite a long ago photo on Facebook that caused people to call me just that. 

True, it was me in one of my more idlyllic, "staring into space" moods... bearded, with glasses, yet the surroundings where it was taken was anything but. 

A lesson to all social media addicts and "judging how his life" is right there. 

Tru, Tom Tom's - perhaps you ccould - but people that know how to read minds, camouflage etc - not so much (yours truly). 

Parenting is also one of the areas I could write tomes on, as I'm sur eyou've learnt!

And I'll always remember what my Dad's friend once told my Mom when she was trying to stop me from guzzling cold BEER ... 

"How will you stop him when he's no longer at home!" 

SAGE, hehe. 

From a man that did it himself! 

But more sage was this comment he told me . 

"No matter what you do, even if you get a girl pregnant, come home and tell your parents". 

Ah, if only I could. 

I remember asking my father about it the next day (I was 17) 

He said I shouldn't take "the words literally but the meaning". 

Ah!

Therein lies the nub, my friend. 

In my family, it's always been "pleasing my mother first and foremost above all". 

Kids be damned, world be damned, all of it be damned. 

Maybe thats good for cucks and Nazi feminists, but for kids growing up? 

(and I'm glad to see more people are coming out with all this after reading what I write - a lady recently wrote about how her mom told her "you've ruined my whole life!" - so much for women supporting women eh? As my "wife" said, women are often each other's WORST enemies!) 

Yours truly never ever had the reassurance that no matter what I do, I could tell my parents and "ultimately " all would be fine. 

I remember my Dad once telling me when I quizzed him on why he had kids. 

"Because they turn out alright in the end". 

He was saying - or hoping "turn out as Mommy wants". 

And from a guy that has been put in the role of "unwilling enforcer" (which trust me, he's LEAST suited to be) his whole life, I found that interesting - and not - both at the same time. 

But anyway ... 

For me, with my daughter, I've always told her this. 

No matter what you do, you'll still be my little girl. 

I mean every word. 

Not for me the "my house doesnt include you" (when it comes to my daughter) and other nonsense people like to spout. 

I'll support her till the day she passes - or I do. Hehe. 

Now, this needs to be taken with a grain - or pinch - of salt. 

I do NOT mind I will support her being a brat - not working hard - not wanting her to go through the school of hard knocks, and so forth. 

I WANT all that to happen i.e. "naturally". 

And certainly, some of the parents that do their best to cover up horrific and grisly crimes their offspring commit, both male and female - I would never go to those extremes. 

But, other hand. 

Children need to KNOW that their parents, and Dad plays a huge role - has their BACK growing up. 

THAT is what I never had, and THAT is what I want to give most to my daugther, and THAT Is what I am telling you, my friend. 

Kids need to know there is a line to everything. But, they also need to know your parents have your back no matter WHAT. 

And that, my friend, is the message for that one, as this afternoon I sit and ruminate about a lot of things. 

Ok, enough on that. 

Kids also need to knwo that fitness is numero UNO, friend. 

And two things - one, ADULTS need to set an example first. 

And Two, if you've got young kids, they need their OWN programs to follow. 

And that, my friend is that .

You know whats coming next. 

Take action!

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - For those in the "ignore" i.e. those that read and do nothing, would it be too much to ask you to click "unsubscribe"? Thank you! And if someone reading this falls into that category, yet doesnt do, I'm sorry, but nothing to me screams out LOSER MORE!

(I mean jeez, dude, or lady, you can always get the free stuff from the site, but why clog up a list if you never have any intention of buying anything?) 

There's plenty of lessons you can learn from the latter, which is derided by many as a crap movie and more - yet, it was a huge success anyway. 

Sly really hit home with his "Cobra" - and "Over the Top" movies in the 1980's. 

Visionary as usual, WAY beyond his time, thats what people WANTED!

If you look at what Bollywood - and Bollywood actors in general - are copying, apeing, right down to the look? 

It's Sly Stallone!

Hell, they even want to make a Rambo in India apparently!

Sly is just a legend, my friend, far, far ahead of good ole "Gubernator" Arnie. People will never understand his genius, perhaps this line sums it up the best. 

"90% of my life has been a mistake - but I've got it right 10% of the time". 

(I'm paraphrasing)

"But that 10% was what really COUNTED!" 

Said like the champ Sly is! 

Same thing for yours truly. 

Look at most of my life, you'd think I did nothing - failed numerous times - as an idiot recently said "you dont have enough docs for your business" (this Bozo, remember, had never started one business of his own, let alone five or more) ... 

But the REAL magic, when I really hit the highs - that EVEYRONE wants -I repeat, EVERYONE WANTS despite the Tom Tomming about "he doesnt have anything" - when people look at me - they ALL wish they could have my lifestyle, or similar! It could be "nomadic lifestyle" like Charles recently said, or "soo many girls" or "a business that pays me as I move about, with not as much work as you'd think or very little sometimes!" ... whatever it is about my way of living, life, that floats your boat - they ALL WANT IT, despite how vociferously they might DENY it ... anyway, that magic? 

That happened in the 1% - or the 10%. Hehe. 

Growing up, and indeed in school and so forth, I've always been one to remain silent as the Tom Tom's spout their nonsense. 

I remember an idiot Anindya from Bengal (in Southern USA) once telling me the following when I was doing pushups before leaving Ricky's house (he was rooming with Ricky at the time). 

"Pushups wont work the brain! Look at them (he was referring to people in general apparently". 

"They have a stupid mind!" 

This comment must rank RIGHT UP THERE in terms of stupidity with the comment I got about "why are you doing pullups! You need to work your mind more!" 

Both UNSOLICITED BS - both made by idiots and jackasses that couldn't do a pushup, let alone pull-up to save their fucking lives if they had to. 

But I remained silent.  

Harry, an Indian friend of mine (at the time - I was 17) once told me the following about my style of quietly saying "Oh, I dont know, I can't do that, how could I!" to all discussions.  

(because I found their theory of "stick with Indians only" so insanely DUMB AND STUPID that I couldnt even comment, I mean,why come to a foreign land then? Just stay at home, eh) 

"You know everything!"  (which is the English translation of the Hindi in the title)

Well, that was said in a sage manner too. He was right, heheh.. 

No, I dont know "everything", but I know a lot more than what Tom Tom's in general know - becauseI THINK - and I LEARN. 

I know because I exercise a right we ALL have ie. to THINK independently. 

And that gives me my lifestyle for the most part, ups, downs, everything. 

Anyway, in Over the Top, they show the arm wrestling match in the diner. 

The first one, and Sly is up against a bigger opponent (as usual - ever notice the similiarities between what yours truly says about "if you've taken someone BIGGER THAN YOU down, then it means something!" - defeating or besting someone that isnt up to par is just HOLLOW! - and what Sly's movies depict?) ... 

(I once remember when doing Taekwondo in eigth grade, and being set upon by bullies - or maybe this was, I dont know, before I started doing it- those guys did do it - and were showing off kicks etc, much bigger than I was obviously - and they were finally pulled apart by another guy. 

"If he doestn know how to defend himself, then who do you think YOU are by attacking him! Attack someone that knows, not someone that doesnt know!" 

That was said sagely too! 

Unfortunately my upbringing meant when I DID defend myself, like giving the guy a natural born kick to the KNEE way before I EVER learned TaeKwondo ... it meant I would be pilloried anyway. 

Damned if you do, damned if you fucking dont! 

PATHETIC, I'd say. Oh well) 

But anyway, Sly is on the losing end for most of the match ... 

And then finally, finally, after the other guy tells him (it came out as "me" when I was typing it - might as well be me!) "you ain't got it!" - he goes OVER THE TOP. 

And defeats the guy. 

BLACK MAMBA!

That is what life is about, my friend. 

Notice the true winners, they're always ready to learn. 

Notice people that hate bullies, and stand up for the weak (like my friend from the Marines) - THEY are the true heroes and SOLID MEN - real men! 

True, they're bested by women sometimes. Hehe. Aren't we all! 

(I'd rather MGTOW for the most part tho!). 

But anyway, THAT is what it's about. 

Now, fitness wise? 

And arm wrestling wise? 

#2 first, most arm wrestling matches dont even last that long - not as far as I know at least. I ain't an expert in this either. 

Normally, for me, it's always been - either I win, or he does!

With a brief tussle, but brief. 

Over the Top was probably dramatized, which is fine. Hey, it's a movie after all! It has to rouse real emotion, which ain't arm wrassling - thats the vehicle. 

And remember two things, friend. 

Arm wrestling is one of the most brutal sports ever in many regards. 

And it requires BRAIN. 

And if you want to show off - or "feel like you can" - then arm wrestling - and handstand pushups - are the two fitness "standards" (if you can call them that, I'd definitely call handstands that) you MUST get good at!

Especially the latter - think about it - how many people can just up and get into a handstand ? 

How many have the GRIP (yes, it's all about forearms! - but dont get me wrong, chest, triceps, shoulders, all comes into it - but weak grip, you're GONE in arm wrestling) to simply flatten bigger arms like nothing else? 

I remember a Japanese dude doing that to me in college, hehe. 

Skinnier than even me by several degress, and yet - arm wrestling - BAM!

Of course, if he did 50 fingertip pushups a day like a certain Korean dude I knew did... hehe. 

OK, enough of the flashbacks, tips etc. 

GET the courses above, my friend. Please stop postponing it, putting it off, complaning about money and all the other BS. 

My stuff is the best out there, and it will get YOU in the best shape of your life. 

So then, just do it... 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - A great customer recently sent me the following 

"I'm 57, so dont have the energy of a young one!" 

Well, DO THE THING - and despite your age - you WILL HAVE THE ENERGY TOO!

Why kids love dinner table conversations

Often times, when on the phone with people - or if I am on the phone with people, which I generally NEVER get on - because if someone's calling me, I've found out it's only because they are trying to dodge some fact I've brought up via text or email and want someone to "listen to them" as opposed to two people having a conversaton and the usual "I'm your friend" bullshit when really it's a matter of the other person being a fuckin leech for the most part... I get irritated. 

Ever notice that some conversations go around and around? 

If you're having a problem, you tell someone pat comes the answer - well, what are you doing to solve it (without you asking for help in any which way).  

Like, dude, how would YOU solve the same problem? 

When you tell these idiots that, they hem and haw. 

And of course, for most people they're bored and looking for pseudo - entertainment, but it brought to mind something interesting. 

And sad in a way. 

Kids all over the world, even today love for their parents to sit together at the dinner table - all together, chatting etc. 

"Dinner table conversation", I believe they call it. 

Growing up, I can't quite recall, but I think until the age of 15 or so, the kids ate first, by themselves or otherwise, adults later ... 

And given the relationship between this "unruly" kid and family (everyone having their own opinion on whats right and wrong, wrong people unwilling to change etc) there was never much meaningful convo to begin with. 

It's sad though, when my daughter wants this - I can hear the longing in her voice for Mommy and Daddy to "sit together". 

It's sad though when she REALLY wants to sit - and not just be entertained, but provide her input - have some NORMALCY for a change. 

Yet, that will never happen! 

Whats even sadder is the world these days, and of course, neither parents, or both, or one not making the effort to "be normal" even for a while. 

Hey, it happens - I get it. I should know!

People hate each other basically. 

But - why bring kids into the mix? 

Unfortunately, that is exactly what is going on amist all the other craziness............

Anyway, on the topic of normalcy. I wrote about this before from an adult perspective, and I'll write about it now from a kiddie perspective. 

Many of you reading this have kids. 

And stubborn though you might be to accept the fact, FITNESS - and movement is what is required for most kids. 

Know whats sad(again)? 

Even physical education teachers etc, those tailored towards KIDS - or supposed to be - are either phat as phock themselves, or aren't qualifed to instruct to begin with!

Look at the fockers in most schools teaching fitness - so FAT they can barely bend over (if you think Bozo, think 1/3 rd his size, which is still a lot!) - let alone teach anyone to do the most basic of movements when they can't do it themselves, or of course these idiotic schools siphoning off the top, "saving a buck" and putting people in that dont know the F of fitness, to save a buck, of course, on hiring qualified people... 

Not me - dont get me wrong. 

Been a while since I taught kids pull-ups - I'll happily take the memories, but not again! Hehe. 

And whats sadder, even the qualified ones, and I've seen this have LOWERED their standards for kids - simply because most kids cannot do even the most basic of movements today without becoming cranky as a bear - or plain not able to do it.  

I can't help but wonder, for instance, when a child of 8 is unable to bend over properly, tie his or her own shoelaces, and such - it is WAY more common than you'd think - not to mention expanding bellies, and the same Grandma's that castiage their own children for stuff way less "doting" away on the grandchildren because of course, it's OK for them ... why? I dont know!

Crazy world, indeed, its come to!

And sad, to me... 

Anyway - try and be as normal for your kids as possible, my friend. 

When they grow up - TRUST ME ON THIS ONE - that is the one thing they will remember above all i.e. GENUINE love and affection, not the kind you "fake". People - andkids - can feel it!

And make sure to get them started on REAL kid's fitness routines, not the crap being thrown around these days - all taught in Kiddie Fitness

Write back - let me know how it worked for your little one!

best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - Adults, for YOUR version of this - go HERE

"Everyone has a story"

It's true, my friend. 

As I was thinking about future plans and visualizing some things - I hit upon this idea, and it's been there for a long time actually. 

You guys - me - everyone - we ALL - want ONE thing above all (or equally important). 

We want someone to LISTEN to us. 

That doesnt mean cry on a shoulder necessarily, it doesnt necessarily mean friendship either, not validation, certainly not Bozo like "nose in ass" (opportunity for same) or anything like that. 

I believe what most of us want - even the anti social ones - even the "bedroom types" (myself) i.e. work from bedroom types - above all ?

Is to TALK - without being judged - abd be HEARD. 

We dont necessarily want the other person to agree, or even get into a debate - THAT - I believe is what most people get wrong about a conversation. 

Lets take politics, Trump, Biden etc. 

I'm am an unabashed Trump supporter, always have been. 

But I'll ALWAYS LISTEN to the other person's viewpoint, friend, though I might not agree. 

And loony as it might be, so long as the other person just says "hey, this is just what I THINK" - and neither party attemps to convince the other of the "right and wrong" or "sane and insane" of what the other person is saying - its FINE by me (so long as it's nothing illegal, underage, and so forth). 

To each his own. 

Not everyone can remain as calm and detached as I do - or many others do, Jeff Bezos for one, I recently saw a clip of him being interviewed about "do you think government will break big tech including Amazon up or is it just a fantasy". 

I'd say a fantasy in Amazon's case, they are SO MUCH more than just big tech! 

The big 4 otherwise, I dont know... 

(with the most recent facebook outages and all that) 

But he never answered the question, instead, in his calm and analytical manner, he went off on a tangent in a manner where everyone could (with brains, that is) see he was avoiding a direct answer,, but went off into something about "all large corporations should be scrutinized", and said nothing more after a brief "my story" tale. 

Hehe. 

Jeff Bezos has this way about him ... 

If I was the interviewer, I'd push him for an answer ie. Jeff, is it just a fantasy, or CAN IT HAPPEN?

I'm sure he'd find a way to stymie me - at least temporarily. 

Hehe. 

Anyway ... 

We all have a story, hence the recent email "doers only" - for SUBMISSIONS

I already feature a lot of you guys in the emails here, so hey - if there is something you want to share - do it!

The DOERS will be featured permanently for free (always going to be free, that part) on 0 Excuses Fitness, and you even get a $50 "submission" coupon in that regard!

Anyway ... this orignally started off as something about storage, eh.

And while writing my numerous stories with all the computer crashes and so forth, all Winblows update inspired - I KEEP having to go back and forth from my numerous backups, download, redownload, upload, and so forth ... 

If only there was a way to make it easier, I thought. 

Hehe. 

(Because yes, while desktops now have "apps" to backup automatically - those crash too!) 

End of the day, much like Coca Cola, if you can believe it, shipping via COAL frieght ships - what they did in the 1960's!!!! - due to the current shipping bottlenecks being so severe ... MANUAL, old school , often works best. 

But anyhow and this is very applicable to all of you digital download customers, that make up the bulk of my customers, andj ust increasing (nothing against you paperback and HARDCOVER guys tho! Hey, I personally prefer those..) ...  

THAT is another advantage of the 0 Excuses Fitness Ship, my friend. 

The first, is obviously, the price. 

Despite the prices for my COURSES going up all the time, the SHIP hasn't gone up since inception, and I dont think it will anytime soon either. 

Well, it went up by $200 in January, but that was after three years, and I dont think there will be another price increase anytime soon. 

You get - for that one membership, as long as it stays valid - ALL OUR PRODUCTS - via digital download "forever". 

In perpetuity - so long as your membership stays valid. 

And it's just so price effective. 

Compare the price of the digitial downlod for Animal Kingdom Workouts, for one - with the Ship membership price. 

Or, perhaps any of our compilations ... 

Not only that, it's EASY. 

You dont have to store on your pc, or kindle. 

Just login to the site - its right there for you!

I believe the option is there in your "my account" section right now too. 

But, the Ship is different - you dont have to scroll through all your purchases to see which one you want to re-download, my friend. 

Just go to the product page, and you'll see a download now button instead of the buy button if you're a member. 

Of course, only catch, no "sign up and cancel within one day". 

Once you're in, you're in. 

And, we're currently expanding the FORUM section for that too - which is basically another area you can connect with your "fellow" fitness enthusiasts, and just share your experiences, and so forth. 

It's one thing to get advice from me. 

Its another to talk to your fellow trainees, see what they're up to, a community, and so forth. 

So that, my friend is why you SHOULD be a 0 Excuses Fitness Ship member - makes perfect sense to me, at least. 

Probably to YOU too, I'm sure... 

In the future there will be another "all encompassing" option where for ONE price, you can get PAPERBACK books - for any product - shipped to you - or hardcover, if available - with no shipping costs (already the case per product on the site, but that would mean you get anything via paperback or hardcover depending upon your choice - with that one membership). 

So, had to say that, now I have... 

Ball's in your court, friend. 

Take action now. 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS and Edit - I remember, this storage issue REALLY hit me hard on my phone for one! No longer, but for years, I used a 13 GB Phone - but it occured even on the 128 GB phones, they'd constantly run out of storage that annoying little "storage full" sign. Ugh. 

All rectitfied now.

Hehe. 

I'm truly on a roll today. 

As I finish making some edits to the Chinese verion of (yes, we're doing books in Chinese now too!) of a book I once wrote - which Bozo Glyn would LOVE - about sissies , maids and all that (rather extreme) - I gotta say this. 

One of the main reasons I could never live in India long term - was this reliance, on overreliance on "maids". 

I know, I know. 

My customers - YOU reading this have gotten back tome several times saying "wtf". 

"Not everyone is so rich as to hire maids!" 

Ah, but there in lies the nub, Indias cheap and abundant labor - except it comes with a catch, and it ain't cheap either. 

When you hire a maid in INdia (which I absolutely NEVER EVER DO - maids there give me the SHIVERS - they always have since childhood!) ... you dont hire a maid apparently. 

You hire someone to "sweep the floor". 

Except, apparently sweeping cobwebs off the floor costs more and is an extra service. 

You hire someone to "wipe the floor". 

Except, removing stains doesnt come with it. 

You hire someone to "wash the clothes". 

Except, drying the clothes doesnt come with it. 

So much for the cheap labor. 

Not to mention, all these tasks - in other , far more developed countries, when you hire a maid, you pay her a set amount per hour - and she cleans - and thats that!

India apparently if you ask her to clean the bathroom - then "cleaning the basin is seperate" and "toilet is seperate" 

It is just insane,of course, when I dare to bring it up (I never do) I get yells aplenty. 

"Who do you think you are!" 

"Thats real life, not the fun you have overseas". 

Ah, so overseas wasn't real life and is all "fun". HA!

"They're graduates, those girls", my S.O. once sniffed. 

OK, well, so they are in many parts of the world, especially these days. 

I mean, I dont know, I know TIC i.e. "This is China". 

But TIC really, it PALES in comparison to "TII". 

Like for fuck's sake, cleaning is cleaning is cleaning, friend!

I hire a maid in China maybe once a month - I dont need anything else. 

She cleans - I dont even tell her what to do. 

She washes the dishes - I dont stand guard over her. 

I dont even need to tell her to wipe the floor etc .. 

It is the same EVERYWHERE, apparently just not "in India". 

It seems almost insane to me, but who am I to say anything, of course. 

Truly, keeping in mind all this, I really Bozo Schofield should give up his Nigerian passport and apply for an Indian one.Hehe. 

He's be hired as a maid instantly, at least by guys. 

And given women generally do a better job of cleaning their own apartments than guys do ... Glyn Bozo would be a god send. 

He'd get a kick to the wazoo if he talked any rot about asses, and so forth, he'd be told to shut up and just do the thing. Hell, so long as he didnt wank all over the place I for one would give him S/M magazines to look at while he worked before I booted him out. 

Best part, he would probably do it for dirt cheap, if not free. Hehe. 

But really, the lunacy that passes for real life these days boggles the mind - my mind, at least!

Maybe we can ask Glyn to set up a "maid service" in India - run by him, and he'd be the sole worker. 

Hey, he'd make a great, great "protagonist" for one of my erotica tales. Hehe. 

Not so much Glyn's China rants, as I once thought of writing (trust me, with his rants on washing machines and such, thats a tome unto itself!) 

But .. and I remember a guy "Cliff" once commenting in a Keeping it Real in China group - my super group. 

"Send her here! My hous eis a mess!" 

Hehe. 

I dont know if he meant Bozo. 

Probably not, hehe. 

"I'll stop". 

Yes, Cliff, I got that from Americana and you ... 

But poor Bozo too, hehe. 

He deserves every bit, and hey, he enjoys it, so might as well! 

As Chuck so famously said, the more the merrier! 

hehe. 

I'll really stop now, LOL. 

Back to SANITY - pick up the best and most results producing fitness system home based - right HERE. 

Remember, you'll be doing your bit for the maid ecosystem too with all the sweat you'l lleave on the floor, hehe. 

And remember to place your pre-order for Lumberjack "Lodestone" Fitness - truly a once in a lifetime book - upcoming. 

Best,

Is email too impersonal?

I was going to write about Mike Pompeo in this email - who I truly believe is the best Secretary of State ever!

I'll always remember his tenure under Trump - one of the best ever!

But while that was the plan last night, I received this email this morning - 

Thanks Mike, I don't like doing emails with new contacts. It’s too impersonal. Surely you have a phone number? Also I only market books my firm publishes, so if you don't want to publish with us I'm afraid I can't myself help though I know someone who can. But we would need to speak first.

Very best wishes, James

Now, this is with regard to some additional marketing I've been doing for my great books on the other site (not the fitness books, the adult books i.e. erotica and so forth). 

I received an email out of the blue from him one fine day - introducing his publishing firm, how they help with marketing and selling books, how they even have "contacts in Hollywood they could introduce books to", and so forth. 

Now, it didnt strike me as being anything out of the ordinary, if anything, their self-marketing was OTT. 

But just out of curiosity, I replied back to him - 

Hi James

Thanks for the "bulk email" on this one!

I've written over 80 books in the erotica genre and more on fitness (for another business vertical) - but while I worked with a publisher in the U.K. years ago on the erotica, I'm currently going it on my own, and that doesn't look to be changing anytime soon.

However, I'm curious - what sort of "marketing" services do you guys provide? The "biggies" are notoriously cranky about advertising erotica and the such as you no doubt know, and I read the part about "Hollywood contacts" etc - so, just wondering what sort of specific marketing services you guys provide, and if that might be something we could potentially work together on down the road ..

I market myself currently and am doing fine, but I'd like to ramp it up to the next level. I can handle ads myself, but the "contacts" part got my attention so figured I'd ask you . . .

Just wondering ...

Let me know - and thanks for the contact - much appreciated!

Now, yours truly doesnt run after publishing firms - or either seek them out. 

I publish EVERYTHING I do - myself. 

And obviously I dont need any help with marketing - given the way things are literally BOOMING on the other site, with reviews to the tune of "I just stopped to SLEEP while reading, and got it done as soon as possible!" - and "“The situations are so well described that many times one can feel the pain felt by the protagonist.”"  (he means mental anguish) ... and way, way more ... I dont need any extra marketing help on either that site - or this one (fitness). 

Hehe. 

Nothing if not a natural born sales and marketing person am I! 

But, I figured I'd reach out to him and "just ask anyway". 

Although their reluctance to communicate via email on their site which I wont mention here DID throw up some red flags - I figured what the hezey, and asked him anyway. 

As always, my gut was proven RIGHT when I got that email above. 

Look, first off, all business is done in writing - especially initially when you do not know the person. 

I mean for one, look at the "bulk emails" he is sending (which dont even include the recipient's name - it's clear its one of those "bulk mailing efforts")  - then he complains that email is too impersonal. 

If it's not too impersonal to badger people in their inboxes - people you barely KNOW - then how it is too impersonal to discuss business with those same people over email? 

I mean, when you meet a woman on Tinder or something, I dont think you instantly ask for her phone number (unless you're the Bozo) - no? 

Same principle applies here. 

You CHAT. 

You TALK. 

And THEN you take things to the "in person" meeting level. 

Jumping the above two steps doesnt work - and leads to catastrophe ultimately - either business wise or romantically or otherwise. 

More - EVERY publisher I've worked with in the past - EVERY real customer of mine - its ALL been done through email!

I've made NO secret of the FACT i dont like the phone. 

Certainly not the dumbphone. 

And getting on the phone for every little thing, or discussions that could be better done on email is a waste of time and even more precious energy. 

Sorry, it ain't gonna happen. I suspect it will be a massive waste of time and him trying to sell me what I don't want, and need... 

I'm sure James has good intentions in mind. 

Maybe thats just how he does business, but it ain't me - and it ain't anyone I've worked with in the past either. 

Yet more - emails being too impersonal?? 

Y'all on this list - what do you think? 

I think we know each other better through emails than we would through any amount of conversation on the phone - because when you WRITE something down, you truly KNOW what you're talking about - and you truly explain yourself WELL - and you get it all OUT and down on "paper"! 

As Freddie said, if it can't be done in writing, then ...! 

True, you DO get on the phone ultimately, but most of the time, there is really no need to do so. 

Especially not for initial interactions. 

Anyway, what can I say, hehe. 

Thats what SOME people think. 

And other than the book linked above, I've been getting great reviews for some of my books HERE - Animal Kingdom Workouts for one. 

One was a very brief comment - like the book itself. 

"THIS IS A SUPERB BOOK!!!!!!!!!" 

The guy wrote this, and just this on a site I did not even know existed - we're TRULY TAKING FITNESS GLOBAL!

Anyway, thats that from yours truly "extremely personal" or "impersonal", depening on which way you look at it, hehe. 

(I mean really, email is the BEST way to market - and he's calling it impersonal, geez - makes me think about his own so called contacts in Hollywood and marketing skills!). Hehe. 

(Not to mention, I really dont think he knows how notoriously cranky REAL writers are about "getting on the phone"... and he runs a publishing biz? Hehe) 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

How things have changed, eh.

In one of those ruminant moods today, my friend. 

And I was thinking, life - - and kids!

How different do kids have it TODAY while growing up - as opposed to when WE were growing up, my friend!

I remember being barely a year older than my daughter is now - 8 - and my Dad whacking the hell out of me for defending myself at school (apparently the other guy's verbal taunts were fine, when I let go - gave him a taekdowndo kick to the KNEE - I still remember him bawling all day long in the school clinic) - I got whacked for that!

Now, part of this was because I didnt tell my parents at home. 

They called my parents to school to complain, and given my parents - yelling at me for damn near everything - I didnt want to go there! 

This trend repeated itself through school, of course. 

Apparently when I (remember, I was always a skinny runt in school!) got "beat the heck out of" - the other guy could do it "because good boys dont fight physically, "those boys" do it, but we "study"' and other B.S. 

But it wasn't just my parents, to be frank. 

It was different back then. 

My wife apparently got paddled - not just on the derriere - buit the legs and such for trivial stuff like "pulling the laundry line down" - at the age of 5 no less, I believe. 

BRUTAL!

Those were different times, those of you with kids know how different it is today in terms of molly coddling (well, in general - I'm sure extreme cases still exist). 

But as I keep telling my daughter (or as I told her a while ago, I believe). ...

"Papa never scolds you, because I dont want you to grow up hating your Dad". 

Now, this will ring home - and true - for MANY of you reading this ... 

Times were indeed different back then, and maybe thats why the world is where it is tody with no-one giving a rip about anything or anyone no more. 

But it had it's benefits, it made us tough - the doers, at least. 

It appleid Nature's laws of "survival of the fittest". 

There's always a plus if there is a minus - and that ain't me "positive" just saying it. 

The great seer Emerson did too . 

"For everything you lose, you gain something". 

And anyone with brain throughout the ages knows this and has said it.. 

Anyway, that aside. 

A lot of y'all reading this, my friend, and I gotta say this yet again at the risk of sounding like a stuck record - a lot of ya'll want to buy a lot of stuff from me. 

But over the past couple of months, a LOT of you guys - just haven't been doing it. 

And if this email is reaching you (segmented email so) ... then there's a great chance YOU TOO fall into the same category, my friend. 

Trust me, buddy. 

I've been in this racket long enough - I know, I watch, I TRACK. 

Not to the extent most people do - end of the day, I could give a rip less if someone doesnt "do", but a lot of you are DOERS!

Some are having financial issues, apparently. 

Some ... not sure. 

But the vast bulk? 

"We don't care". 

We dont care what he says or thinks. 

Well, thats fine I suppose when it comes to you, though it's a self defeatist (I'm being polite) attitude if thats you. 

(and really, it ain't about what I think either ...) 

But when it comes to your kids, my friends, I'm sure you guys would never scrimp! 

For you adults out there, the 0 Excuses Fitness System is an absolute and UTTER must have!

Trust me. 

But even if you want to neglect yourself (though I cannot imagine why you'd want to neglect your health, fitness and training) - then kids??? 

Trust me, the kiddie version of the above is Kiddie Fitness - it has different exercises, yes, because some of the stuff in 0 Excuses Fitness is not suitable for young kids. 

Given the rising level of obesity and big bellies amongst kids though ... this is a must have for YOUR kid, friend. 

 Be sure and grab thisNOW. 

And I'll be back soon!

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

PS - Actually I do "scold" my daughter on occasion. I just do it differently. 

I remember my Dad lamenting about how "my own son hates me" in NY in the USA at the age of 15 ... 

Well, what can I say. 

I have my own version of things, I'm sure he does too. I'd say I was right, but of course, what do I know... 

But you on this list know what I mean!

But, history doesnt always have to repeat itself, if you get my drift, friend. Some things can - and DO - change!

Triceps, the forgotten part ...

I dont know about you, my friend, but when you haven't worked out in a long time - other than core strength and "stomach" distending and so forth - what is the first to GO? 

It's not your grip, biceps, chest, or even traps ... 

It's your TRICEPS. 

For me, and for most people, triceps are the forgotten part of the arm - which is nigh astouding, since that brute pushing strength and arm SIZE - comes from - TRICEPS!

Not only pushing - if you're weak at pull-ups, and this is one of the secrets I explain deeply in "Pull-ups from DUD to STUD - within a matter of WEEKS!" (the new and updated version on the site now) - tricep strength could well be a limiting factor. 

Dont believe me? 

I understand. 

But just make a fist, and pull down. 

Feel the parts of your arm that work, I believe you'll get the answer right there and then. 

But triceps, my friend, are an INTEGRAL part of any real fitness trainee's training regimen - or should be - and unfortunately, are NOT the backbone of most people's training regimen, even those training with weights. 

In "Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness", you'll see how your triceps are really what push, pull and move - all those heavy implements in the course!

And the one way to get strong triceps - to BUILD them? 

Is by pushing, and doing so repeatedly. 

There is a reason, my friend, boxers and wrestlers focus more on pushups than pull-ups - and why the Marines for one do more pushups - way more - than pull-ups. 

Dont get me wrong. 

PUll-ups - turn you into a battletank and powerhouse. 

I should know!

And a super stud too. 

But, pushups are and should be the mainstay of any serious fitness routine - implements, weights, pull-ups - or NOT. 

Pushups and legs, because if there is one exercise that can work the entire body ? 

Or two? 

I'd say hill sprints (or climbing hill) - and pushups!

More so than anything else, my friend, anything else. 

And the exercise in the best course on pushups do a fine, fine job of building the triceps and those huge arms you so want. 

There is truly NO OTHER COURSE like this out on the market - so says the bodyweight fitness GURU Rahul Mookerjee aka "Stella Artois of Fitness" 

Get you some now, and get started rightaway!

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee

I will never forget the comment Charles Mitchell, a great customr once made about me... 

"Your courses are not for the faint of heart! The only reason you're not as rich as Jeff Bezos is because most people look at your books, and say "F that!" ... 

Never become a pussy trainer just so you can sell more books!" 

Now this, to me - is what typifies ME!

I am NEVER EVER going to be, act like - or become something I'm not at my very core - money or no money doesnt come into the equation, friend. 

But a lot of us nomads, or nomadic types or semi nomads (China) - I've noticed we all have some things in common. 

A crappy family life back home - or not at all. 

Overbearing, domineering Nazi feminist mothers and fathers that are either not there, or pander to the women willy nilly. 

(hey, that is fine i.e. pandering if thats what gets you off - ever thought about the effect it has on KIDS????) 

The usual guilt trips, jealousy etc - as Uncle Bob once told me "that sort of thing can really fuck a kid's development up"). 

And many other things - but where I truly believe I stand apart? 

A willingless and WILL to DO MORE WITH MY LIFE - SERVE OTHERS - through my outstanding books and products - MAKE PEOPLE's LIVES BETTER, not just my own (and my own by extension) as opposed to the Bozo schofield nomadic types who just drift from place to place like a feather, or perhaps bump on a log at sea...

No goals, no aims, (other than be a cuck and lick ass that is) - no money, no real intentions of doing anything other than be a monkey and drink the next beer. 

Anyway ... there's more reasons. But first, lets take a look at an email I got. 

Thanks for your reply.  It's nice to know there are some intelligent people left in the world, including your daughter!  Nice to know there are others on the same wavelength.  You lead an interesting life with the way you move around a lot.  Wish I could be a nomad like you!

Now, he was replying to what I Said in my last email (posted on this site since it didnt go through to everyone). 

My response - 

Trust me, buddy - If I had a "normal" family, I'd probably be happy staying put in India or wherever it is. I mean, a family that talks about aborting a three month old (in the foetues) baby - then claims all the nonsense they do, then after the baby is born they forget it all, forget all of what they did - in short, a Nazi feminist family, then you do what you have to do to SURVIVE - and THRIVE.

I guess I could bow to their whims and be a cuckold the rest of my life, work some crappy minimum wage job "because Mommy deemed it so" and "stay in one place". But thats not me as you know, haha. I'll never stop fighting for what is RIGHT. And I'll never bow to anyone's whims - always been one to do my own thing - which you know, hehe. COmes with problems not faced by most people, but hey - thats life - and in any case, I'd rather surmount problems myself than bitch and moan like the Libs do, end of the day, CONQUERING TOUGH TIMES is what real men and true survivors and winners in life are MADE OF!

And therefore...

And - you're welcome - hows the training going by the way - keep me posted on them pushups, especially the fingertip ones, hehe.

Cheers

Rahul

Trust me, that ain't even scratching the tip of the lunacy in terms of family. 

But really, I come from a place of deep, deep knowledge in terms of Nazi feminism, and am definitely THE Person to learn from in terms of combating it. 

No, it aint just another book. 

You won't find anything and another one like it out there - much like with Pushup Central, my friend, and my other fitnes courses. 

And really - think about it. 

Why would someone be a nomad if all was good at home? (wherever home is). 

To me, its always been where I hang my hat - with certain conditions. Hehe. 

But even if things were "excellent" back home, I'd probably have a yearning for more. 

I'd never accept the status quo on anything. 

Dreams, desires, aspirations - most of all, you ask? 

FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My personal freedom to me is numero UNO, my friend. 

This so called sham of a marriage that cost me money, years, all of it - I never wanted it in the first place. 

And of course, my "naiveity" in that regard - though to me, it was more about being in the flow, and doign what I do in life - take a decision, then see where it goes - hey, I learned a lot, so I'm happy for it! - ensured years of chaos and turmoil. 

All I asked her to do? 

Live together. 

..... 

Fact!

Anyway my personal freedom to me is the most important thing, friend. 

By far. 

And life's too short to be a caged beast - or have dreams and aspirations you never fulfiled. 

I've done more in my own life thus far than bozos and cuckolds (a lot) globally have, and I'm not even "getting started" as yet. 

Why tie yourself down to one place - when there is som much to experience? 

Yes, having a base is one thing. 

But what when - which is what has happened most of my life - that base is pretty much taken away? 

What NOW - given whats happening to the world - what would you choose, a base - or the ability to move anywhere, work from anywhere, be your own Master (or Mistress, if it's Christina reading this, hehe) - work on your own time - and so forth? 

Well it doesnt happen overnight, but happen it does. 

I've worked at it for years. 

So can you, and no, its never too late to start - ask Colonel Saunders, hehe. 

And a lot of others. 

It's about doing, and doing now, and starting, and not postponing ... 

Anyway, I'm out. 

From yours truly nomadic, "until the next time"! 

Best, 

Rahul Mookerjee
