Suffering

Suffering

Is what we’re going to face whether we leave the door or not, suffering exists on both sides of it,

Suffering will happen if you go for that job or not,
If you speak to that person or not,
If you workout or not,
If you better your education or not

Suffering is a part of life it will show up if we walk left or right, don’t move at all or just stay on the same path we’re on.

We are going to suffer

So you might as well suffer at something that will make the suffering worthwhile

Example – If choose to workout, you have to suffer through the workout, you have to suffer from the hard work, from the lifestyle changes and the sacrifices you have to make like going to the gym over going straight home and watching the tv.

But through that suffering you get healthier, you feel a lot better, you look better, you have more energy.

If you don’t choose to workout, you get to eat what you want, have those lazy days, don’t have to face the gym, but all that pleasure will lead to suffering,

Your health will start to degrade, you might gain weight, you will lose energy, feel under par most of the time, struggle with concentration and so on…

Suffering is everywhere
All we can do is pick ur poison – Jordan Peterson

We need to practice

We don’t become virtuous by reading Epictetus or Seneca, We need to practice – Massimo Pigliucci

Practice, Practice, Practice that’s all we’re doing, all day every day,

The question is what are you practising?

Are you practising what you said you would or are you practising talking or quitting…

Talking about how you’re going to do this and how your going to do that Or quitting this because it didn’t work the first time

Jerry Seinfeld was booed off stage the first time he performed, did he quit… no, He practised

Failure Is Success (Part 2)

Yesterday I wrote my interpretation of the above-titled chapter,

This is a summary of what Rob (Moore) actually wrote

The harder you try the luckier you get, the more you persist on even when you keep getting rejected, missing shots and losing status the better chance you get at being a success.

Rob uses examples of famous success including Justin Rose (Golfer) Who took to fame at age 17 coming 4th in a major tournament… Over the next several years through his form slipped and so did his rankings, he slipped from being in the top 50 then to the top 100 then slipped even further out of the top 100 rankings…

He persisted on and in 2018 he was ranked no 1 golfer in the world (Along with a sweet 10 mill)

The point of the chapter was to embrace your failures

Failure Is Success

Failure Is Success

(At The Time of Writing I Was) Currently reading Rob Moores ‘I’m worth More’

One of the chapters is called – Failure Is Success

I’ve not read that chapter yet so it’ll be interesting to see if my take is similar to his.

When we fail at something we have succeeded in overcoming our fears, our resistance and doubts and actually taken action.

We’ve committed ourselves to the unknown

Like when you go in for a Personal Best, The weight is unknown, will you hit it, will you hurt yourself… We don’t know.

Hit the PB or fail

Your still a different person than you was before you tried

& That is where we succeed in failure.

Hack away at the unessential

“It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.” – Bruce Lee

The first step to financial freedom isn’t earning more money, Its spending less

The same is true for good health – Hack away at the unessential.

The unessential amount of tv, the unessential amount of snacks and junk, Alchohol…

You will find the two go hand in hand, the less you spend on things you don’t need, The more money and time you will have to spend on actually living.
