Words Spoken Set life in motion

All quotes are from The Mount Of Olives Book by Michael V. Ivanov

Perhaps when you are able to speak, you can’t think at the same time.

On Olive trees, “Sometimes they take 5 to 8 years to produce fruit,”… barren and useless for so long just like he had been. But when they became ripe, they produced an abundance of fruit. He would one day do the same with his life.

You know changing your location will not change your situation

I see many like you… they’re running somewhere they think will get them a better life only to face what they once left behind

Words spoken set life in motion

“Men are the same. Their languages are unique, their skin color comes in all shades,
and their way of life may look different—but they all want the same thing.”

All men want to live a life full of love, happiness, purpose, health, and an abundance of gold. All men want a great life. They want to be known for something and
they want to be great at something, yet very few attain any of these desires. It is the greatest mystery of our human existence.”

“Man seeks also to find meaning to his existence but he goes about life pursuing all things that are vain,”

“He fills his time with one thing and then
moves on to another. He fills it with strong drink and entertainment. He fills it with women, giving in to his sexual appetite. He fills it with his work and family. “He fills it with experiences and, yet, when the night comes and he lies down, once again a deep sadness comes over him. Deep… deep inside every man lives knowledge of his miraculous power but man has learned to suppress this power, this force that is bursting from within his
soul.

“He is afraid. He is afraid of what he must go through to become a new man with a new life, an extraordinary life”

“There are also the men who have desires and want to do great things and, still, they do not do them. All men have an equal opportunity to attain the life they want by simply choosing a better way to live, by simply following the principles.”

You boy, have no less ability to create the life you desire than any free and able man. You may not be able to speak but that must not stop you from seeking the extraordinary life. Your disability is not the reason for your failure; your mind is. You have let other men dictate and tell you what value you bring to the world and that value is equal to an itch on a camels ass

“I became wealthy here and here, long before it showed in my coin purse.” The man tapped on the side of his temple with his finger and then tapped on his chest

“In here, you build your life and in here, you destroy it. It is your choice how your life unfolds.”

Plan all the way to the end

“Let all your efforts be directed to something, let it keep that end in view. It’s not activity that disturbs people, but false conceptions of things that drive them mad.” -Seneca, On Tranquility of Mind, 12.5

You’re suited up ready for action, ready to level up. You can see your target it’s locked in. You charge towards it, Boom It was an ambush and now there is no way out.

When motivation is high, when we’re ready to level up and our emotions are high, we need to steady ourselves, go back to the war room and check the battle plan.

Overcoming Resistance

“The amateur believes he must first overcome his fear; then he can do his work. The professional knows that fear can never be overcome.”

-Steven Pressfield, The War of Art

Imagine if Bilbo never left the shire, Or Luke Skywalker never went to the Death Star

Imagine that before they left the door, They talked themselves out of going, They made up excuses like ‘I forgot my handkerchief’, Or ‘I’m supposed to stay here and help on the farm’

The movies that we know and love would be incredibly short and our beloved heroes would just be Hobbits and Farmers.

Your Avatar

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.” -C.G. Jung

Before you start your quest you need your avatar, This is not a video game where you can create your perfect version of you, Select your strength and how you look, bash a few buttons and master a skill…

You want to level up in real life, You need to look inward, You need to know who you are first, in order to bridge the gap and become who you want to be…

A day in the life of

Looking back over the years its pretty amazing to see how much one can change

Sometimes that change happens at random through an event or person

Other times its intentional through study, exercise and personal development

A lot of the change over my life was random until the last 3-4 years when I started doing intentional change so this post is a day in the life of how I go about that (in no particular order)

1a &b) Reading and study (sometimes I combine the 2)

This is where a big part of my Personal Development came from, reading books on finance, philosophy, buisness, productivity, health and fitness and everything in between
Or sometimes I just read novels

2) Exercise- do I need to explain the benefits if exercise, feel better, look better, perform better, I exercise often 3-4 times per week

3) walks and dog walks, get out in nature and move often

4) downtime there was a point in my life where it was just work work work l, everyday I never made any time for downtime and I burnt out, got injured and had no social life

So these are just some of the things I do on the daily for intentional change,

What do you do let me know below v
