So what does it actually look like to Level Up Your Life?

If you hop on over to Instagram, (Depending on who you follow) you’ll see a host of Entrapenures posing with their supercars, people on their laptops with a margarita at the beach, and some fitness model posing with some supplement…

We think that this looks easy or I want that then we set about getting it…

We order the supplements and set up our online store…

But when the Ads don’t turn into a profit and the supplements don’t Melt the Fat as advertised,

We realise there’s more work to this than initially thought.

Normally this is enough to make people quit.

So I thought I’d shed some light on what it actually looks like.

The Little Things Add Up

The Little Things Add Up – Ryan Holiday

When we go about change, we normally make these big dramatic changes, They never normally last, Then we’re back to where we started…

But it’s the little things that can make a huge difference over time…

They don’t seem like much, getting up an hour earlier, reading or writing one page a day, walking for 30 minutes every day…

What are you looking to do or change, What small thing can you do daily that will make a huge difference over time?

Obviously the same is true in reverse the small negatives add up too.

You Are What You Eat…

You are what you eat…

You feed yourself garbage, eventually, you start to feel like garbage, your energy levels drop and your output is garbage too…

The same is true for the information you feed yourself, The people yourself with, The music, the tv shows, what you read…

All this information is fed into our subconscious…

If you feel negative, lack motivation and have a can’t be arse mentality, Then look at the people you surround yourself with, How do they talk, how do they act,

What are you listening too on the radio and on the tv, is it drama, drama and more drama, same with your reading are you just reading the drama on facebook…

Garbage in – Garbage out

Choose Your Ancestors…

“We were kids without fathers, so we found our fathers on wax and on the streets and in history, and in a way, that was a gift. We got to pick and choose the ancestors who would inspire the world we were going to make for ourselves.”
― Jay-Z

‘We got to pick and choose our ancestors…’

We can’t choose our family, but we can choose our inspiration,

We choose the people we look up to, the information we feed ourselves, the books we read, the movies we watch…

In the Book Steal Like An Artist – Austin talks about the concept of choosing your Ancestors.

You take your inspiration and find who inspired them, then you find your inspirations inspiration and repeat the process, eventually, you have a family tree of inspiration, whose work you study, imitate and create new ideas…

Create your own family tree, Create your own world, Create Yourself

One of the greatest regrets in life

One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”
― Shannon L. Alder

Don’t throw yourself away.

Theres a saying that goes around in the personal development world…

‘Do what you love’

But sometimes doing what you love doesn’t bring you an income, or when you start making money for doing what you love then you eventually resent what you love, (Theres a few examples in the book unscripted)

So we have to find somthing that we can live off and you know survive…

But that does not mean we have to throw ourselves in the trash so we can live…

We can still do what we love and enjoy what we love, Whilst loving the job that we do.

If you want to get together with your friends and become a rock and on the weekend then do that, If you love painting and drawing then do that in your free time…

Just because you can’t make money from the things we love, does not mean we should throw that part of ourselves away…

Weak men act to satisfy their needs

Weak men act to satisfy their needs, stronger men their duties. Nassim Nicholas Taleb

You’ve had a bad day, Nothing went right, But now you have to do your duties

(Duties being your side project, your book, your workout etc)

But you don’t want to sit a write all evening, You don’t want to work out…

You would rather do some online shopping, chill and watch the tv, anything to satisfie your needs of feeling better…

What do you do?

Do your duties or satisfy your needs… That choice is yours
