Actions and Loneliness

Actions and Loneliness
Nobody is coming to save you…

There was a period in the past 12 months where I experienced chronic loneliness, If you follow my blog you would have seen poems reflecting that.

I started sedating with Whiskey every night to try and dull the emptiness I was feeling.

I’ve never been good with communicating with people I don’t know (Like starting conversations and have always been useless on dating apps like tinder) these feelings compounded during lockdown – like no one wants to date even if they did we’re in a lockdown kind of thoughts…

So I would always sign up for dating apps but wait for people to message me first and when they didn’t I would delete the app and feel even lonelier

It got to a point where I was like fuck this, this shit can’t go on anymore, I need to take action

So I found the worst opening line invented so bad it was good and just sent it to everyone I matched with…

I got unmatched
I got laughed at
But I also got responses
and conversations
and dates…

The point is, Nobody is coming to save us.

We need to take action.

This applies to our health, wealth, relationships
There is something we can take action on today.

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…
