You have to build the man
Garret J White
In order to be the man you have to build the man.
Its frustrating when your not where you want to be.
Its frustrating when you try and start out but its bloody hard
But you can’t become that person until you build that person
So you can sit in frustration
You can quit because its difficult
But you’ll never be that person
You have to do the work
“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…

Getting Stuck is Normal But Winners Grow Anyway
We all get stuck
Some of us choose to stay stuck
And I say choose because getting stuck is a choice
Its excuses over action
Rather than looking for a way around
When you decide you dont want to be stuck rather than just saying you dont want to be stuck then you can grow
And that problem becomes a possibility
Long term reward normally has a short term pain…
For example I have Exercise induced asthma which is a weird combonation because long term, Exercise helps manage the asthma but short term after a run for example it causes a bit of a choughing fit.
On the other end of the scale we have short term pleasure which normally resulys in long term pain if repeated.
Lets go for a weird example and say someone starts watching porn (In a relatiobship) which as a one off or on occasion isnt an issue but if the porn watching contines, you get the short term pleasure of the quick relese, but the long term pain is that the porn starts interfearing with the intamacy between you and your partner…
The sex life is compromised and then the relationship starts to fall apart…
Where as if they went through the short term pain of not masterbating for one night so they had the sexual desire for their partner the next this would result in long term reward (Providing that the rest of the relationship was spot on)
Obvisioly a bit of short term pleasure every now and then isn’t an issue but eventually you have to decide what you want for the rest of your life, becuse which ever one you choose the long term is geting effected.
I am that somebody who can make a difference
I am that somebody who is responsible for my life
I am that somebody…
I am that somebody who will let others dictate what I do
I am that somebody who relies on others for my happiness
I am that somebody who will hope for the best and do nothing…
At the end of the day, we decide the type of somebody we can be.
We can decide that we are responsible for our health, for our wealth, for the shape of our relationships, how much we let others control us…
Or we can be that somebody who will pass the blame on to others because nothings our fault, Someone else is responsible for our health, wealth, happiness etc…
Who are you…
That is up for you to decide…
But also if you don’t like who you are, change is always an option…
Be that somebody.
