Dreams, Gravity, and the Infinite Progression Towards Simplicity: An Understanding of Fearlessness in the face of Change
I am convinced now that gravity affects not just our bodies but also our dreams.
Since the dawn of civilization, it has been mankind’s greatest ambition to take domain over its kingdom. We have always wanted to understand everything about the universe:
- “What started all of this?”
- “What’s existence?”
- “What’s death?”
- “Who am I?”
- “What is the meaning of life?”
- “How can we make life simpler?”
I thought this was the most amazing thing I had seen all day. It was just this one quiet moment when my train was passing by that I saw a man on the opposite tracks. He was wearing a business suit; he was was sitting down, bent over, hands folded, with his head gazing off into the distance.
He had a backpack filled with his belongings.
It seemed as though he had prepared to meet his maker.
When I decided to write this piece, I did so with the intention of helping you realize a great truth about life. I wanted to show you how truly alone you are in this world, and through this understanding, I wanted to show you how to truly matter.
Why do they always teach us that it’s easy and evil to do what we want, and that we need discipline to restrain ourselves? It’s the hardest thing in the world to do what we want. And it takes the greatest kind of courage. I mean, what we really want.- Ayn Rand
I’ve decided to put my money where my mouth is.
I’m tired of living my life at levels below my expectations, at levels below my goals; therefore, I am going to broadcast myself publicly for the world to see.
Perhaps this will thrust me into great causes of action. I created a 10 goals list for 2011 as the year began; however, I’ve made plenty of excuses, and all of my goals have fallen to the wayside.
I am going to start once again. I am going to write a journal frequently, and I’ll update you on the lessons.
So, you can’t find the right guy, huh?
People say you’re pretty, but you feel ugly as hell, right?
You were only a few pounds away from your “perfect weight”, so you decided to burn it off.
And once you burned it off, you found yourself lonelier than ever.
Ladies and gentlemen, this post is for the gorgeous women out there.
Fat chicks get too much attention, anyway.
Plain and simple: HOTNESS SCARES MEN AWAY.
There are so many choices we could make in our lives, and the abundance of choices makes it very difficult for us to decide what path we should take. Most of us quit before we even find that answer because the search is far too difficult. Choice, itself, is a great luxury. We live in times in which choice is commonly available to nearly everybody on cface of the planet. We simply do not have to be tied to serfdom and assigned identities any longer. So, how do we find fulfilling, lasting, wonderful success in life? Keep reading. =)
Your life will pass you by, and moments will be measured in blinks.
What matters most is how you spend this time.
Live a life filled with goals.
I’m sure you have quite a few, but how can you stay consistent with your ambitions?
One of the greatest things you can do in your life is to hire a coach.
If you can’t do that, then stay connected with a friend, and you both can hold each other accountable.
WELCOME BACK! I’m sorry for the dissonance. I had to take time and prioritize my life. School started, and I needed to readjust my schedule in order to make some huge changes. But, I’m back, and I’m fresher than ever.
Listen, we’ve talked about “dying” already. You already know that there is a limited amount of time you will have on this earth.
Most of us take this time for granted. Naturally, people tend to be lazy because they feel as though there is all the time in the world. If you examine the story of Fyodor Dostoyevsky, you will an entirely different view on life; however.

There’s an Incubus song called Warning which explicitly states, “Don’t ever let life pass you by.” If you haven’t heard that song, and especially if you have not ever listened to Incubus, I suggest you go and listen to that song right now because it kicks so much ass. Youtube it.
The sad thing is that countless numbers of people, myriads, let their lives fly away daily. Everyone’s a Jay Gatsby, everyone’s stretching for that green light across the river at the edge of the dock. In this world of symphonies and heartbreaks, dreams and aspirations, very few people stay focused.
