This is going to be a really personal post but i don’t give a shit. i know i have friends and family who are in terrible positions and i want to offer you all something. that is to never give up. determination is key. .
to the left of this photo was me at 179 lbs in november of 2017 and to the right is my present day april of 2018 at 159 lbs. im definitely no where finished with where i want to be. i began incorporating a lot of different workout routines and intensity in my workouts. i changed up my diet (not perfect) and controlled my portions as much as i could. .
i was f*****g miserable. my ex wife left me and my divorce finalized that month. i tried so hard to find an escape from everything. i spent money i didn’t have and threw my attention anywhere and everywhere that would take me away from the hurt and pain of life and my situation. to say i was a victim of depression is the biggest understatement. and to add insult to injury, of course right after one of the worst experiences in my life happened, i lost my job and my father who i never got to really bond with died of cancer shortly after. it’s still weird.
i devoted all my energy and time to make sure i created a positive habit in improving myself and my situation. i could have easily fell into the spiral that many do. im stronger than that and i wasn’t going to allow those things to damage me any further and so are you. i put my f*****g foot down and said i’m not going that route. .
i’m still currently healing from all of it. eventually you heal. time will allow you to. of course i’ll always remember all experiences. the gym and music have literally saved my life. at first i would spend almost 3 hours of my day just at the gym so i didn’t have to sit and stare at the rooms my ex wife and i shared. it helped. positive distractions..
i looked up to many different people for positive vibes and to keep me on track with my goals jordan peterson @elliotthulse@philthatremains@aj_frato@wirejames1@gramsthatareinstant
they all helped me in their own way heal from the cavity placed on my soul. i thank everyone of you who has periodically checked up on me and genuinely care about me. much love.
Think about that! if you live in america your money is no longer backed by gold.
short history lesson: back in the day each dollar was backed by an equivalent amount of gold. fast forward to today and the fed prints fiat money which is backed by nothing.
this means the fed can print as much money as they want! ( they don't because of things like inflation, deflation and the like). this in turn means there is no shortage of possible money you can attain. you just have to understand how money works.
dan s kennedy is right. your fair share is however much you can get (legally). this is the fire starter wishing you an awesome day!
