I’ll never forget something my father once told me when I was young. About ye small, as it were . . .
“The person that has the ability is ALWAYS expected to do MORE!” , he proclaimed.
In a tone f voice that brooked no further arguments, and of course, for yours truly, that meant I just HAD to question him.
And I would have anyway.
“OK, fair enough”, I said. “But then they should get PAID more! Or compensated accordingly” . . .
To which of course, there was no answer, and an annoyed look, and finally an irritated “that’s not how things work!”
Why, I asked.
Perfectly reasonable question you’d think eh.
And of course, there was no answer, except the usual “Who does he think he is to ask all this? He thinks he know it all!”
Know it all? Hey, I asked WHY, didn’t I?
He might as well have answered “No why”, as they do in mainland China. Mei Wei Shen Mo . . . something that annoys me greatly especially if the question is a valid one.
I’ve since learnt (and I was young then of course) is the reason people don’t answer these questions is because they cut DEEP . . .
Because of certain inadequacies THEY themselves have deep down inside (and I’m not referring to my father here – I am talking “in general” as it were) that get exposed when these questions are answered, or certain things they are themselves doing WRONG.
Anyway, I found this way of thinking to be highly socialistic and STUPID with a capital S.
Akin to what a colleague of mine in China told me years later when people were trying to mooch off me for this and that for whatever reason.
“It’s like a well full of water”, he laughed “Everyone shows up to fill their jug and leave after they’ve done it, and as for the well . . . “
And he laughed again.
“It’s EMPTY after a while”.
And though he said that in jest, what he said he was true, and it’s a way of thinking and philosophy that I embed into my daily life my friend.
No freebies, no “free” anything, and certainly none of the “you can do it, so you should help me for FREE” B.S.
Certainly no “you learnt X language for free, so you should teach me for free!”
And certainly not in terms of fitness either, but as for the expectation part, I’ve found it to hold true in life in general (though it’s not ideal, of course).
The 20% in any company, for instance, are the ones that really keep the company afloat and the rest of the slacker going.
This might sound insane, but its true my friend.
Do you remember that company I worked at? Yes, THAT company!
The same thing happened there. I was expected to bring in more sales “because I could” and “had the ability” and when I asked for commensurate compensation to be given, there was … you guessed it. Crickets with a capital C.
“Oh, he doesn’t have a choice”, was the thinking of the “powers that be” at that time.
In other words, they figured I had no choice when it came to jobs and it was their way or the highway.
Anyway, this sort of socialist thinking doesn’t appeal to me my friend. Sure, you can EXPECT more from me. No problem. And you’ll get it. But by that same token, you’ll be expected to COMPENSATE me – and WELL – for my services – or time – or products – or whatever it is you’re looking to get me to do for you.
That’s just how it works my friend. I’m not much of a fan of Marxist thought processes such as what he majority of folks seem to believe in . . .
Anyway, and again, back to fitness, I hear you say.
In terms of fitness, I’ve already covered the no freebies part (and how!) . . . but what I did not say up there is that fitness ain’t an unfair employer my friend.
It truly is something where you GET what you PUT into it – and again – how!
Napoelon Hill, I believe it was, spoke of the Law of Increasing Returns which was first brought up by the great Emerson in his essays on compensation.
He goes on to say that any service you render with an open heart (preferably an open heart) comes back to you somehow – and in an INCREASED manner. With compound interest added, as it were!
If you’re working hard right now on your fitness, for instance, but not seeing any results straightaway – well fret NOT.
Keep doing the thing, and soon enough you’ll have the power and probably MORE than the results you wanted when you first started, my friend.
And that’s how it’s worked with me in terms of fitness, as you know, and how it will work for you as well.
And that’s how it works in life in general . . .
Anyway, that’s a long enough post on all this.
Bottom line – if someone expects quality in any regard from you – be damn sure you can deliver it – and once you do – do so at a PREMIUM, my friend. There truly is no other way.
And when it comes to your own fitness, apply the SAME philosophies.
You’ll be nigh astounded at the results that come on down your way!
P.S. – Go here to avail of the best damn home fitness system out there – https://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/
My wife be a TRIPPING. Which isn’t entirely out of the ordinary, but this one really took the cake.
HUGE big time.
Apparently one of the neighbors has been hospitalized for . . . guess what.
You guessed it. The COVID-19.
Well . . . not quite.
Apparently they “suspect” the person has COVID, and off she was, whisked off to the hospital while those she is living with are doing the rounds in their neighborhood about “others not stepping out of their houses”.
Even though this person has NOT been CONFIRMED to have the COVID.
I give up, my friend.
I’ve posted a while ago about how FEAR is the biggest enemy of mankind, and the worst virus ever, and yet, the reaction from my wife (and possibly others too if I care to speak to them) when I said this was to be seen to believed.
A hysterical “just who do you think you are? You sit in your own world”, was my wife’s furious response . . .
My own world?
Yes, to an extent to people it seems I “sit in my own world” as I work online. Of course, when the money comes in from that online work its quietly acknowledged as work, and of course, the minute it’s spent it becomes “my own world” and nothing other than that.
I reiterated the stats etc on this blasted virus.
As well as the fact that it started in mainland China (and YES, it was covered up there) and that YES – despite being right there, I haven’t got the virus.
I don’t know a single person that has it, and friends that know people that have it have ALL reported that the people that have had it have RECOVERED.
And yet, the panic continues. If anything, countries seem to be wanting to get back to full lockdown on a global scale - - India being one prime example, but I’m sure there are others as well.
And what’s next?
Whisking people off to concentration camps because they don’t toe the liberal line? Or any “government espoused line”?
Eroding away of individual liberties even more so than is being done NOW?
Simply getting a case of the sniffles, or what not, and rushing off to the hospital to be admitted because one has COVID-19?
And then when someone points out that the build up of FEAR is steady and insidious and that this FEAR is what is really killing people from the inside out – lambast that person roundly?
What is the world coming to, eh.
I don’t know – but I do know this.
FEAR never helped anyone, my friend.
And if you’re one of the very vast majority out there that is “sitting at home” (curiously enough I’m the one accused of doing that by those doing it on a regular basis themselves) and doing NOTHING at all constructive with your lives other than the latest Netflix re-reuns, soap operas, listening to the B.S. schnews about the virus . . . well, you’d be WAY better served by doing something – and in most cases something PHYSICAL.
Simply yelling at and “threatening to shoot down the messenger” doesn’t work, my friend. It never has.
Cold, hard, LOGIC is often times what needs to be looked at, even though that logic might be painful to acknowledge . . .
Anyway, enough of that.
For more on banishing the fear, negativity, and other insane vibes floating around these days, you need to arm yourself with a good exercise program, my friend.
A DAMN good one, and there is no better than the 0 Excuses Fitness System.
Jump on it right HERE, my friend – https://0excusesfitness.com/0excusesfitnessystem/
P.S. – Rise UP, folks! Get rid of the WORST virus of them all, FEAR . . . ah, but wait. I’m in China. I’ve traveled the world. I’ve . . . ah, but what would I know, eh. ?
Well, so we seem to be finally back online in all regards – fingers crossed!
And as I started talking to a new contact on LinkedIn this morning (well, not entirely new as I’ve chatted with her on occasion before), I was talking about the mess that the current web host created (in short) and my plans to move on to a new server, which seem to be going on in full swing as we talk (type).
The new host should be a far more powerful one than this host in terms of servers, but of course, we will only know once I get the opportunity to test it out fully which I am in the process of doing now . . . once I can get the site migrated over, and once I can get the domains etc done, and . . .
Ah, but that’s enough I.T. gobbleydook for you, hehe.
Yes, my I.T background does help – as Charles a friend of mine once told me when I was tearing my hair out during the web hosting “downtime mess” –
At least you know how to deal with it! I’d have no clue . . .
And while that didn’t necessarily assuage my frayed nerves, he was spot on.
Sometimes it DOES – PAY – to be a Jack of all traders, quite literally. Hehe.
Not in terms of exercise though – and yes, in terms of exercise too! Haha. IF that sounds like a mind bender, THIS article here probably will explain more.
That’s straight out of 0 Excuses Fitness by the way – a 300 page MUST grab for any of you interested in REAL fitness routines that just flat out WORK.
And in terms of my convo on LinkedIn, the lady I was chatting to sent me a good luck message along with
“You seem pretty full on!”
Full on. I liked that comment for sure!
This lady is part of a nice little copywriting “clique” (in a good way, of course) that I often enjoy reading. I don’t participate a lot in social media discussions etc for obvious reasons, but I DO enjoy reading what these guys have to say, as I’ve been there and done most of it at a certain stage or the other!
Full on indeed. This website. 0 Excuses Fitness. My copy writing projects for other clients that pay WELL . . .
And of course, my OTHER writing which is a lot more than what I’ve done for the fitness biz.
Certainly full on, and that’s how I like it!
And enough of this – I’ll update more on server moves etc LATER once it’s all DONE.
For now, run over to this here page and get your hands on the best damned fitness system ever my friend. Home based workouts that don’t take forever. Workouts that build MUSCLE and burn FAT – plenty of it – and give you extreme flexibility too (nah, not in that way – get yer mind out of the gutter if it’s there, hehe ?).
And so it goes!
P.S. – Have you checked out Advanced Hill Training? It’s one of the courses that sell like HOTCAKES day in and day out at 0 Excuses Fitness HQ, and rightfully so. Go right HERE and check it out, my friend.
As I grapple with an increasingly annoying web host who is seemingly doing all they can to (try and) RUIN the 0 Excuses Fitness biz (there’s a reason I use the term “ruin”, and I’ll elaborate on why beneath) – I’d like to talk about something else.
I don’t know if it’s a trend these days or what, but every time I bring up a problem with regard to anything – I’m given the standard stock response of “Sorry for the inconvenience” (I can almost see their grubby little fingers typing that response out as I type!) – and then after that this little gem!
No-one ever has any problems with us! It’s just you!
And lest you think it is just this web host, think again,
Think SEVERAL times.
I’ve been through a lot of web hosts, good and bad – and the ones for the fitness biz have always started out as great, and then (after they had my business) became the exact opposite and worse.
But I must admit THESE guys (and I won’t name and shame them for now here – but I’ve done so elsewhere) – take “poor service” to giddy limits.
Some guy at their customer service center coolly re-directed the domain to a competitor website – amazingly enough (or not!) with NO prior authorization from my end.
That’s right. They didn’t even bother asking!
Like a schoolboy doing all he can to “get the issue resolved as quickly as possible before the customer finds out”.
Before that, they renamed a few files on the 0 Excuses Fitness website to “Hello World”, and got back to me claiming the issue was fixed.
When I raise tickets, try and talk to them – the works – you guessed it – crickets.
I just wrote a lengthy two page post on this so won’t get into it again, but here’s the point I’m trying to bring up.
MANY companies are like this. It seems to be a “shame the customer” technique that may work for idiots, but it don’t work for anyone that has half a brain.
In China, my internet service provider often tells me the same thing when I complain about spotty internet at times.
“It’s just you! No-one else has complained!”
And yet when the dude who fixes it comes to my house to repair the connection, his phone is ringing off the hook with dozens of customers complaining about – you got it – the same damned issue.
And my Chinese internet service provider is not nearly, nowhere NEARLY as bad as these web hosts I’ve got now.
Anyway, end of rant there – and I’m not sure when the 0 Excuses Fitness site will be back.
We might just have to move hosts – YET AGAIN. Last major move was in 2014, and it looks like 6 years down the line, another one is in store.
No big deal. Happens. Hehe.
But the point is this, my friend, and it holds true for fitness too – it ain’t just you.
There are tons of people trying to get in shape – just like you.
There are tons of people dealing with the nonsense spouted by the so called gurus and experts on fitness that are getting nowhere quick – just like you!
And there are tons of people that don’t know how to engage in routines like the ones I wrote about yesterday on this here site . . .
It ain’t just you, and that is why I created the members only forum on 0 Excuses Fitness. Go right HERE to become a member (once the damn site is back up again that is).
And on that note, it’s off to deal with the increasingly recalcitrant web host . . .
P.S. – Contact me directly in case you’re on the outlook for products etc, and I’ll have to process the orders manually in that case. No problem though – go for it – I’ll be happy to serve ya that way too! ?
I’ll admit it.
Oh YES, I will.
I’ve been in one of my foul, foul moods as of the last couple of days. Day and a half, actually, ever since . . .
Even since, ah, but wait.
I wrote a post about the FACT that ignoring the negative in your life won’t necessarily make it go away, and in some cases will even excaberate the problem.
That caused a few people to unsubscribe from the list. One person (well intentioned) even sent me this “Can’t you be a little less grumpy at times?”
Well, she was right in a way, but she was WRONG in a bigger way.
I wasn’t being any grumpier than my normal “el groucho” self. I was stating a fact, which with all the hoo haa about everything going on, people choose to ignore these days, and “just think positive”, thinking it will “draw the positive” to them.
And the so called goooorrooooosss don’t help either, my friend, by propogating stuff that flat out don’t WORK.
As for proof?
Look around you, my friend. Look at what is happening not just to you on a macro level, but globally.
And as for this damned COVID19, don’t even get me started on the stupidity again. Apparently it’s gotten to the point where even normally sane people are buying into the insanity of “the world needs to stay locked down indefinitely” and to hell with why or the repercussions and consequences.
Deep breath ….
So you have probably noticed my two sites (at least the fitness ones) beiong up and down over the past day or so.
Actually, you probably noticed an OLDER version of the site yesterday without the most recent blog posts, and today, a BLANK page when accessing the site.
My host done moved servers for what seemed like the umpteenth time, and in typically professional manner and by their own admission they never bothered to inform any of their customers about it.
And for what seemed like the billionth and one time, 2-3 days of blog posts and site upgrades were LOST during the transfer, and the host could care less despite this problem occurring not once, not twice, but damn near every month.
If anything, their response is “so what. IT happens”.
And one fine gentleman on the support team took the time and initiative to rename the site main file to “hello world”, and then claim it was working when 0excusesfitness.com showed nothing but “hello world”, something my six year old could probably have done eyes closed.
And for those that didn’t know, they call this “tech support”.
Some will no doubt ask why I don’t move hosts given all these fools have put me through in 2020.
But I did my friend.
And the last one was just as bad, and in these times of lockdown and what not (indeed, they have a ready excuses “we’re working from home! Please understand!”) I am not sure a move would be the best idea.
What infuriates me is their stock “We’re sorry for the inconvenience” response to everything, which they just generate by pressing a button on their customer service app. They’re anything BUT sorry, and this problem reoccurs every month, so if they WERE truly sorry they would have fixed it, but nothing.
A law unto themselves a lot of these web hosts are, and while I’ve shortlisted another one, I’m not hopeful. But we’ll see.
In the meantime if you have any suggestions on this front, feel free to pass ‘em my way and we’ll go from there.
And on other fronts, and grip workouts …. Napoloen Hill correctly stated that every situation, every negative occurrence has a positive – and the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit if you look for it.
While I’m not sure this situation has any benefit whatsoever, I was feeling 200 on a scale of 1 to 100 on the grumps scale this morning, and I’m at 70 now.
Well, the only way I know how.
A hard, hard workout in which the jump rope darn near slipped out of my hand, and not because of the sweat either.
IT was because I couldn’t grip it any longer at a certain point during my workout.
The Gorilla grip fanatic could barely grip the jump rope!
Would you believe it if I told you that my workout involved nothing but this, and the numbers 1600 and 20?
A 20 minute workout for 1600 jumps, and a slight change in hand position that left me fried.
A small change that torched my entire chest and core, and upper back, and my grip … and that explains the numerous typos in this here email, more so than normal, hehe.
I’m not going to reveal what it is HERE, but rest assured it’s BIG my friend – it will work your entire body and fry that unsightly lard off in ways you never thought possible – in record fast time.
And I’ll reveal all on my groups and inner SHIP (circle) once the site is finally back online. UGH!
And so it goes for now, my friend. I’m so pissed I haven’t even turned on the air-con and I’ll do so now and might as well take a shower too, hehe.
P.S. – Napoelon Hill wrote about being tested, did he not? In his own words, there seems to be a hidden guide whose job it is to test men through all sorts of discouraging circusmstanes and heartbreaks to ascertain just how much they can take. The men that succeed are those that keep picking themselves back up and keep on keeping on, until they finally “reach” – and the gates of full blown success are thrown wide open – and in terms of hosting – and some other things right now – I sure do seem to be going through it!
P.S #2- Nothing new for me though, hehe, so rest assured. We’ll be back with a bang very soon – and how – and on that note, I’m out. See ya later!
P.P.S – And while I won’t name and shame the web host for now, I’ll tell you this – stay AWAY from companies that pretend to be based out of the U.S. and have their support sneakily and entirely based in India. I’ve written about how tech companies and BPO etc in general is quietly leaving India, and THIS level of service is one reason why, and believe me, with my I.T. background and work experience here, I KNOW (back in the day I actually worked for someone, hehe).
No it aint racism, so please get off your soap box(before you start). It’s me stating a FACT, my friend. Customer service in anything (or most things) in India atrocious if at all existent … Amazon India being the one exception to the rule.
I’m sure there are good companies there, but they are very much the exception I’d say rather than the NORM!
Last year was a time I was guilty of not devoting as much time to this here business as I should have.
And for good reason in ONE way, I suppose. I was involved in a new venture at the end of 2018 which took off pretty quickly, but as they say and as a client from THAT job way back in the day once told me (I think I was 27 at the time, and my web development business, something I was into at that time was going OK).
“Good to know your business is going ok, Rahul! Far better to be slow and steady than be the rocket ship that takes off, crashes and burns . . . “
There was more, but that was the gist of it.
That client taught me a lot (I should say dealing with that client, actually) about life – sales- communication – and while a lot of my writing ability was obviously something I’ve honed myself as well as my unique style (as a subscriber recently pointed out) – SOME of my negotiation skills were learnt on the job – by negotiating with a person who was BETTER at it at that time than yours truly was, hehe.
Or was he?
He once told me,
“Rahul, you were the only one that could SELL me the project!”
‘Tis true, my friend. ‘Tis true and there are more details in the book right HERE.
Now, on to last year (again).
I was giving my friend Dwayne a bit of background on the fitness biz and he was giving me some real world useful pointers on it, which I gladly took on board.
Dawyne’s a sensible man that has been there and done that, and any advice he gives you has been “tempered” by the fires of life - - and you KNOW that if a man has been there and done it, and then talks about it (much like I myself do) then I’m more than willing to be the ear that listens and learns.
We never know everything . . .
Anyway, I was not devoting as much time as I should to this here business and Dwayne gave me this little bitty wisdom that slipped through the cracks as it were.
Just post something everyday, Rahul.
Even if you’re not really going full bore, that’s fine. Just keep posting, and eventually . . .
Curiously enough this was advice I was following FULL TIME since 2017 for 0 Excuses Fitness (and back in the day for rahulmookerjee.com) but yet, despite it having brought success, I “put it on the back burner” temporarily.
We often stop doing those very things that make us successful, my friend. In an insidious and “back door” manner (no pun intended) something else creeps up that takes center stage, then something else and something else, and before we know it, we forget that we’re not doing what we were cut out to do.
Napoleon Hill said the same thing when his inner voice told him he was being a stubborn student, and told him that the reason for his recurring disappointments were his lack of persistence in following through with what was truly his “mission in life”.
You have been a stubborn student! Learn this lesson once and for all, that you will find happiness only by helping OTHERS find it!
And there’s more to that story that I’ve gone over before so I wont get into it again now. Maybe another email.
Point being this.
Doings something everyday IS what it’s all about.
The little gains do add up over time.
PERSISTENCE, truly IS to man’s character what carbon is to STEEL!
And if there is one major quality that seperates the true achievers from the rest, it is this.
The SAME principle applies in terms of fitness.
I’ve often said that it’s like putting money into a bank account.
One excellent workout after the other. Or perhaps 5 excellent workouts in a week, and that one day you don’t “feel like it” you go light – feel great later – and you still put something in the bank.
You wouldn’t stop putting money in the bank would you?
Well, then why not do the same thing with fitness my friend?
Believe me, the gains DO add up over time – with compound interest at that!
And that’s today’s message. For more such wisdom – hark on over here and get the 0 Excuses Fitness System NOW.
No, it ain’t “free”. No, there aren’t any discounts (unless you’re really serious and in that case shoot me an email and we’ll see what we can do). But it’s stuff that WORKS, my friend. Truly does. For the doers only though, as I’ve said many times before!

As the violence on the streets rages on throughout the U.S., one has to stop and ask the very pertinent question . . . At what point is ENOUGH ENOUGH?
I don’t care if you’re talking protests (which probably started out as peaceful and then descended into the chaos we see now) or anything else – there is a limit to everything.
Was the killing of George Floyd WRONG?
Should we take action against the guilty officer(s)?
That one is so obvious I’m not even going to dignify the question with a response . . .
But again, and I want to ask people – at what point is enough enough?
Do we simply burn the entire country down to the ground because of the actions of a certain group of people (a MINORITY)?
Do the actions of ONE guilty cop speak for ALL?
I can tell you one damn thing – cops in general have a tough job to do, and (at least in the U.S.) they do it exceedingly well for the most part (and I’m not talking the exceptions to the rule).
I remember one night I was walking back on campus (when I was in college) to my dorms (late at night, around 4AM or so) after an all night programming session, and was stopped by an officer asking to see my ID.
No reason given. None at all.
And yet, the WAY in which he said it was so friendly that I had no option but to pull out my ID’s – both of them, hehe, and show it to him.
“Here you go man”, I said.
“Thanks man”, he replied, handing one of my ID’s back. “I just wanted the student ID”.
He made a quick call.
“Ok, sir, sorry to bother you!” and off he went . . . or was about to, until I spoke again.
“Don’t worry about it buddy. I’m not doing drugs or anything. Got enough on my plate to worry about!”
The officer laughed back, shook my hand, and off he went.
Flash back to another scene outside the dorms where I lived on campus when the cops once “asked me to wait outside” before entering the building.
Being I was in a rush, this ticked me off a bit, but just a little.
I asked why.
“Because someone that looks Hispanic like you just committed a robbery and ran” was the non committal response.
Ok, no problem.
In another 10 minutes or so, the officers apparently figured I wasn’t the one, hehe, and said I could leave, while apologizing again.
And I did so.
And the above two are cases that could easily have gone down as “tragic” or at the very least “racial discrimination” cases.
I COULD have jumped up and down about “racism”, if you think about it, and yet, that would be the last thing I’d do.
Things happen for a reason. People say what they do and think what they do for a reason. And while blanket categorization ain’t right, try telling that to the cop who has to solve a crime – or detain a person – often in the spur and HEAT of the moment – with weapons and much else involved.
Sometimes, you just have to co-operate with the cops, and in the vast majority of the “tragic” events, I’ve seen evidence that the person didn’t co-operate at some point.
Am I saying what happened was right?
Am I saying stopping me on campus on “suspicion” was right, and that my white buddy at the time wasn’t stopped?
But things happen, my friend. And for a reason.
And when things descend to the levels that businesses and normal life across the nation is being destroyed, then it’s time to call a spade a spade and call the people engaging in said activities what they ARE – that being domestic terrorists.
There is NO excuse for the looting and vandalism (and destruction of businesses owned by people of all colors, my friend – in some cases businesses that took years to build).
Hate does NOT go away with more hate (see what Martin Luther King had to say on that).
And while Prez Trump is being pilloried as usual for his statements on bringing the military in – well – to those that are pillorying him – WHERE do we draw a line in the sand?
Obviously the States have not been able to control what is happening, and keep it within LIMITS.
Do we just let the entire country descend into mass chaos and anarchy (not to mention the COVID crisis which hasn’t really been solved as of yet – and no I ain’t advocating more lockdowns!)?
I think NOT.
I think there is a limit to everything, and someone needs to take a stand, and I personally am glad Donald Trump has taken a stand – albeit an unpopular one (but sometimes, as Alan – a guy on my list – once said “unpopular is often what needs to be DONE”).
And so it goes with fitness too my friend.
Sometimes, you have to take a look at that expanding girth – waistline – and “gluteneous maximum of plenty” and declare that “enough is enough”.
Sometimes, you just have to stand up and say that TODAY is the day I’m going to start to change my life – both fitness wise – and OVERALL!
And sometimes, in fact often times, you need to draw a line in the sand, and say enough is enough, and the change – back to positive – begins NOW.
Or ask yourself the question I posed above.
And that, my friend, given what is going on globally seems to be about as pertinent of a topic I could talk about today.
Back with more later!

On another site (well, the 0 Excuses Fitness site) I wrote about being roundly trolled a few years ago – as well as of late when I posted about my fitness stuff, articles etc.
One fine gentleman on Facebook went so far as to say “You’re a narcissistic little thing!”
And while the comment was more of a hissy than anything else (another one of those that made me spit out my puh er cha as I was drinking as I pictured the tub of lard behind the computer screen writing the comments) – did I get “annoyed”?
Or disturbed? Or worried about my “reputation being slandered” (as a friendly recently wrote about)?
Not at all, my friend.
If you want to troll me, well, I ain’t a hard man to find.
And it’s been going on for YEARS to be honest, hehe. I just haven’t paid much attention it until a few years ago (and the only reason I DID pay attention then was because that happened with a guy who myself and Charles (my friend) tried to HELP – the latter on numerous occasions).
A guy who stole money numerous times from Charles (who though I disagree with on everything is a hard working man in his own right and not one of the freebie seekers I write about so often).
A guy that contacted Alan, a good man and business contact of mine and attempted to troll him with comments about my ethnicity etc . . .
A guy that showed up half drunk in Charles’s house, stole money, hit on his girlfriend (other wierd stuff you do NOT want to know about), apparently made a royal pest of himself throughout his stay (don't ask hehe) and was found apparently lying outside in his underwear or something from the picture I was sent. LOL again.
A guy that was reportedly deported from China (and knowing what I do and the proof I have, it wouldn’t be surprising if it was due to drugs, and if so, he’s damned lucky they didn’t do away with him period – with their zero drug tolerance policy and what not, and I daresay in his case it wouldn’t be an entirely bad thing, hehe).
Anyway, such is the nature of online trolls my friend, and while the lady that wrote to me was apparently very upset about being trolled (as is happening to her now, and I suspect the first time), I wrote back and advised her NOT to worry about it.
There will always be people who don’t like you, my friend.
And anytime you’re trying to break out of the herd, or have DONE so – remember the bucket of crabs analogy (and I am referring to myself here, not the lady that contacted me), you’ll be routinely trolled, castigated, have abusive comments hurled at you, and worse.
Napoleon Hill once wrote about persistence being necessary for any sort of success.
As he said, persistence is to the character of man what carbon is to steel – and to this I’d add being thick skinned. Hehe. It simply IS a pre-requisite for any sort of success, and funnily enough, as I keep getting trolled, the number of BUSINESS opportunities available to me keeps increasing.
In this economic climate, supposedly “down” and the worst in recent history, I’m getting offers for . . . no less than INVESTMENT in my products.
Yes, that’s right my friend.
And more. The sales just keep shooting through the roof, and as I wrote about before – embrace the trolls, my friend. They truly are there for a reason, hehe.
As for HOW to respond to trolls – or even IF – well, that’s a topic for another email and one MANY are interested in. Watch this space – I’l be coming out shortly with an email on that too, hehe.
In the meantime, don’t forget that the best way to banish negativity out of your life, period is by ignoring the trolls – and getting in great, great workouts on a regular basis. Pick up your copy of the 0 Excuses Fitness System right now, and get started today!
P.S. – Take a gander too, for those of you that seem to be “unable to land the girl you want”, hehe at this course right here - - Advanced Hill Training
Several things are, actually.
The first being a comment from my coon ass friend Rueben (remember him, hehe) who I was once discussing being FAT with, and he made the following comment in a sage manner like only HE could . . .
You know you’re too fat when you look down and your belly is so big you can’t see your dyck!
LOL. But true, if you think about it . . .
Then of course, that old Chinese saying I’ve spoken about before.
“Ren Pang Qiu Dian”
(fat man have small penis)
And I’ve explained this one before too, hehe.
And last, but not least, an ex girlfriend of mine way back in the day
“You want . . . again??” she said, a horrified look on her face. “Third time!”
Well, not horrified - - but, you get the drift! Hehe. ‘Twas but a few hours between . . . and while I ain’t gonna go there, you know what I mean!
Anyway, where am I working up to with all this garbage you might ask?
I don’t know, my friend. Well actually I do and I’ll tell ya once I stop cackling . . .
You on this list will recall that a subscriber wrote to me asking about certifications etc, and got an answer detailing my thoughts on the matter.
And after all was said and done and the dust settled, I got a response that made my jaw literally drop with amazement (and a chuckle or two ensued).
I didn’t think it would lead to this after his comments on my “style being unique”, and me saying “as it should be, hehe”.
i need to be more man. my wife thinks im too little and i dont think she wants to sex with me anymore. i need to save my family
This response floored me. LOL. For a while I didn’t reply, and then I sent this back –
Get on a manly exercise routine then. You'll FEEL more manly straightaway, not to mention LOOK more manly . . .
Now, I can’t say if it’ll make the size of his you know what increase, and we better not go there, but the point stands!
My exercises DO increase libido my friend – and DO make you look – and FEEL a lot better.
Its all in the mind and at the end of the day, I’ve always felt vastly energized after a quick workout burst - -even if it’s just five or ten minutes during a workday, and so will YOU, my friend.
And yes, certain exercises do contribute more to blood flow to the nether regions than others . . .
Here they are, in no real order . . .
The exercises in Advanced Hill Training
The BEST darn exercise ever.
Pretty much MOST if not all of the pushups I teach you in Pushup Central
Pull-ups, and more . . .
Get good, real good at any one of a combo therein of these exercises, and it’s pretty much a given that your libido will shoot through the roof – not to mention your FAT LEVELS which will go down so drastically that youll wonder what you’ve been waiting for all this “here” while. Hehe.
And that’s that for now. I’m out!
P.S. – I can’t promise that the size of your “wang doodle” will increase on my exercise, but you WILL understand the truism of “Ren Pang Qiu dian” . . . as you see the fat melting away, you’ll naturally see more of what matters, and so will your S.O (insert gender of choice, hehe). ‘Tis but a fact. And to get on them fat blasting routines go HERE to get Advanced Hill Training – and get started – NOW!
P.S #2 – Don’t forget too, to pick up a copy of the best selling 0 Excuses Fitness System (I haven’t mentioned increased libido specifically as a side benefit of these exercises, or even a main one, but it’s very much a real benefit!).
P.P.S – Too funny, hehe.
. . . I probably won’t be.
And these days, no matter how many times you message me or pester me up and down, chance are I simply either won’t reply or I’ll block you and delete you off my list or whatever for good.
In the past I’d sometimes relent on this particular policy of mine . . . ALWAYS and ALWAYS to be disappointed that I did. If my gut told me that a certain piece of communication was to be ignored, and if I ignored my gut – guess what eventually happened.
I got burnt.
Anyway, what do I mean. Why exactly am I saying this?
Well, it’s simple . . .
I don’t know if y’all remember this, but a while ago I wrote about a person that took trolling me to a whole new personal and racist level.
He was basically using the “can a non white person be American” garbage “logic” to troll me and while I initially got pissed off, I later just did what I do now up and ignore it (actually, I PROFIT from it too, hehe, but that’s a different story and one I believe I will talk about soon on the other site ?).
And though he himself up and blocked him after verbally abusing me online, he’s back as of now, and he’s been trying to get in touch with me with a friend of mine.
A good friend . . . with whom I rarely if ever see eye to eye on anything , hehe.
And when I received said message from my friend, I didn’t respond (for obvious reasons).
But I didn’t block him. OR delete him. Or put him on permanent ignore. Or anything . . .
Despite all our numerous disagreements he’s actually a smart dude that chooses to support the wrong people and take the wrong path in life, but hey, he probably thinks that about me too. And I’d be the LAST person to tell him that he didn’t have the right to live his life the way he wants though.
Not so with the other dude though.
And once it became nigh apparent that I wasn’t going to “forgive him” (a trollish way indeed of saying “lets start wasting time with meaningless conversations again”) he started trying to get in touch with me – again through other channels.
Namely, a girl named . . . ah, I won’t name her, but let me just say that the two of them “know” each other and the shenanigans they got up to – well, I won’t mention them here, but they’re not for the faint hearted to be honest (no, nothing R rated as far as I know, but on the scale of “how the hell can someone be so DUMB”).
And as far as I’m concerned, the reason she’s persona NON GRATA is because she contacted me a few years ago asking me to build her a website . . . for . . . you guessed it.
And while I politely declined, I never spoke to her after that (again, for obvious reasons) .
And as of late she’s back with a vengeance, much like dude I’m talking about is.
Probably the lockdown (though I hear the U.K. is technically and finally starting to get out of lockdown, hehe) and probably boredom from having no job or worthwhile means of employment and trolling outta Mama’s basement, or Cheung King mansions in Hong Kong, or the “government homes” (as dude puts it – apparently he’s on some sort of government welfare or what not after (again, apparently) getting kicked out of China) . . .
But whatever it is, it started with a lengthy Facebook message which I’d post here, but I deleted instantly.
Then this email a few days later –
My name is <I’m being kind, so I won’t name and shame> (I'm sure you've heard plenty about me!)
Can we talk please?
I need to talk to you about something. It's very important.
Please Email me back on this Email Address, which is: <bleep>
Look forward to hearing from you.
Many Thanks, <name withheld>
The subject line of the email was this “Hello Rahul. We Need To Talk Please?!”
If there ever was a limit to which the nutjobs can go to to WASTE time, I’m yet to see it. Hehe.
This lady (I’m using the term very sparingly, mind you) writes lengthy emails and Facebook messages to me and deliberately hangs out bait to the order of “we need to talk” when I don’t know her from Adam (or Eve).
At least I knew the other dude. With this gal, no way, Jose – all I know is what I heard from other dude, and the less I heard on that front the better. Believe me, you DO NOT want to know some the “shyt” (literally!) she got into . . .
Why not simply use the email or Facebook message to just up and TELL Me what she wants?
Ah, but that’s because she knows my response to the freebie seekers, lookie lous, Tom tommers and retards in general . . .
But she’s trying to get one last little time wasting dig in anyway.
Nice try, but no dice, but on that note though, it must be said that on occasion I do forget to get back to GENUINE emails – sometimes because I’m just too busy to do so – and sometimes because well, there are only 24 hours in a day and I only have 10 quick little fingers, and even those aren’t enough at times.
As I state on my sites, if the question warrants it I’ll reply through my email list for all to see.
And sometimes even if it doesn’t, hehe, if just to showcase the pure and utter idiocy people find the time to get up to.
Anyway, last, but not least, if you’ve emailed me and I have not responded within 24 hours (and if its something genuine), please DO BY ALL MEANS send me a follow up email ,and I’ll get back to you asap. Sometimes, there is just too much to do in any certain day!
And that, my dear reader is THAT. I’ll be back with more “explosive stuff” soon, hehe.
P.S. – The best darn fitness system on the planet is the 0 Excuses Fitness System, and I’ve even gone to the length and trouble of (nah, no trouble, hehe, I’m willing to bend over backwards and then some for you real customers out there) putting together a FAQ section in terms of all the questions I routinely get asked. Check it out – and if you have more questions ,shoot me an email, and we’ll gof rom there!
P.S #2 – Ditto for handstand pushups, pull-ups etc. I have books I sell SEPERATELY on Amazon with regard to ONLY AND ONLY frequently asked questions for these great exercises) – but if you buy through the website, I’ll include them for you at NO EXTRA COST along with your regular download. Check it out, and let me know your thoughts!
P.P.S – Stay tuned for how a certain little article I posted literally caused my site views (across the Internet, not just my own site) to shoot through the proverbial ROOF and them some, hehe.
