From the computer of Mark Dumanon. Subject: Having the self-esteem to follow your purpose.
It’s 4AM. I woke up and did my physical excercise. It’s a good start of the day.
I’ve had a lot of vivid dreams this night and they all could only mean one thing.
You see my friend, dreams are signs from a higher power. Some people say a dream is just a dream, but those people are not on the road to understanding.
My understanding of the dreams I had this night was clear. I woke up and I knew what God was trying to tell me.
I need to be the best at what I do.
I want to blow the competition out of the water and earn my bread doing it.
I want little children to argue over who would win at writing motivational posts, me or Victor Pride.
This is what I want… And I am sure I will get it.
I have the time. I have the resources. I have the capacity.
The glass should be seen as half full, then it will quench your thirst.
If you drink while seeing the glass as half empty, half a glass wouldn’t be enough. You could drink a river dry and still be thirsty.
That’s because mindset is everything.
Psychology suggests that a positive mindset will provide you with abundant resources. It’s also called growth mindset.
The same works for a negative mindset. You attract what you think. You radiate what’s inside you.
If you eat junk food, do junkie things and don’t treat your body with respect you will only attract people who are just like you.
But if you work out, eat and dress well, and have a purpose, people of all walks of life will be attracted to you.
It’s cause and effect, just like my dad taught me. Your actions have consequences. And thoughts are actions.
I have many things I want to pursue. They’re not small things. But I have a whole life to get there, and I know they will make me happy for a long time.
Who knows? Maybe if I achieve them they get carried over to the next life and I’ll start my next life even better than I started this one.
Because I certainly have had a good start, having been born in the Netherlands. I’ve had a lot of chances to make something of it.
I floundered through the first twenty five years, trying different things, making different mistakes. Being lost. But I seemed to have learned from it.
If anything making those mistakes have made me more focused, more set on my goals. I can see more clearly now.
I take my time and use my energy in a different way than before.
It’s only recently that I’ve begun to write. This blog is almost two years old. Since the start it has attracted thousands of viewers and I’ve gotten positive feedback on my style of writing.
But what’s the endgame?
I am not going to beat around the bush. I aim to write content that you will need to pay for. The blog will still be free, but you can kill two birds with one stone for these extra insights and help me live my life while you improve yours.
It’s not come that far yet. I need to do more research, attract more people, and make sure I write the absolute best content for my you, my friends.
I learned a lot about writing to kick your ass and motivate you by using the internet in a productive manner.
Nothing good comes easy. That’s the motto.
Be honest. Are you able to handle getting the good stuff? Do you have what it takes? Do you even know what it takes?
Are you able to say “no” to bad things and confident enough to open your arms to opportunity?
Saying “No” the first time is hard. After that it gets progressively easier.
Say no to alcohol. Say no to weed. Say no to drugs. Say no to sleeping in late and waking up 10 mins before you have to go to work. Say no to gossiping. Say no to not being the best version of yourself. Say no to politics. Say no to not living a free life. Say no to expensive housing. Say no to materialism. Say no to Black Friday and buying a new TV for 30% off. Say no to video games. Say no to masturbation. Say no to Netflix. Say no to watching the news. Say no to eating MacDonald’s. Say no to pornography. Say no to naysayers. Say no to people who have no moral standards. Say no to impulsivity. Say no to Instagram and flaunting your life with a filter as if you don’t have difficult moments. Say no to jobs that require you to sell your soul and don’t at least give you fulfillment in return. Say no to plastic bags at the supermarket. Say no to complaining about your life and not doing anything about it. Say no to sloth. Say no to pissing your money away instead of saving it for later. Say no to not tracking your expenses and income. Say no to militant atheism. Say no to calling everything racist. Say no to watching vloggers. Say no to using your disability to not produce anything meaningful. Say no to everything that reeks of bullshit and see your happiness improve.
Until the next time.
