HOT and DANGEROUS…but alone?- How to Find Mr. Right
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.
It’s a strange situation we’ve got here. Generally speaking, every woman wants to be gorgeous. But, does being gorgeous come with a price tag of loneliness? It seems like girls who are in less-than-satisfactory (this is me being nice here, lol) shape tend to get a lot more attention than do girls with runway figures.
Now, now, I know what you’re probably thinking: “Hot girls get hit on all the time!”
- Yeah, sure. At the club.
But, when is the last time you saw a gorgeous woman being approached by a man in a setting such as a university, a library, the park, etc? Sure, it happens, but it’s very rare.
Many women tend to lose a lot of self esteem due to such instances. It’s just that over years, they begin to think that no man finds them attractive. Clubs simply don’t count, because guys hit on anything that moves when they’re inside of clubs.
But to truly find a man who resonates with you seems to be a difficult task.
Here is what you gotta realize:
Men are scared.
If you’ve been spending countless hours at the gym, and you’ve gotten into the best shape of your life, but you only seem to be finding losers, it’s most likely because the higher quality men are too intimidated to approach you.
Guys simply are too intimidated to approach hot women outside of clubs and bars.
Hell, even at clubs and bars, guys tend to avoid the hottest women because of social stigmas.
Generally speaking, if we’re not approaching you and you look drop dead gorgeous, there are probably a few reasons (and, by “reasons”, i mean excuses we make to not approach you. These are not actualities, but just fears we have.):
1. You are gorgeous, so you must be taken. Hot women can’t be single. It just doesn’t seem right.
2. Hot women are bitches. We don’t want our self esteem to get hurt.
3. If you are taken, we don’t want your boyfriend to kick our ass.
4. “There is no way a girl like that would ever want anything to do with a guy like me.”
5. All of the above
The sad reality is that in most cases, the answer really is All of the Above.
That answer may have worked really well in high school, but it sure as hell doesn’t work well here.
But, have no fear.
I can confidently say to you this much: Don’t give a shit about those guys.
You worked your ass off to get the stunning looks that you have, and you certainly don’t want to settle for some chump.
You want someone who ideally suits you, someone who complements your drive.
Your looks are a way to weed out the real men from the sissies.
But, here we run into a major problem.
You…are looking for a rarity…a cowboy.
So, Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?
The real man is a dying breed, and you have to be LUCKY in order to find one.
The funny thing, though, is that a real man is still very, very, easy to find.
But, it takes a special kind of woman to find him.
The real question isn’t about the existence of cowboys.
Rather, the question we should be asking is “Am I mature enough for a real man?”.
Let me explain.
Gorgeous Women are only Halfway There
What the hell were you thinking when you decided to become gorgeous? Did you think that the man of your dreams would just come by and sweep you off your feet?
Hell, even if you were born gorgeous, that does not make you exempt.
It’s like hot women just seem to think that the right man will magically appear on their doorstep like a fucking jug of morning bottled milk.
The truth is that obnoxiously attractive women are only halfway towards completion.
Let me explain.
Fat girls have nothing much going for them physically, so they spend a lot of their lives developing their personalities. Fat girls generally have amazing personalities, and they are generally well liked and accepted by most of the world- for their personalities. If a girl is moderately in good shape, but she has a great heart, many men will overlook certain features and give her the benefit of the doubt. But, even a fat girl is halfway there because she lacks the physical components…
Big black boots. . .long brown hair.
So, then, being hot isn’t enough either. Hell, you could be a victoria’s secret runway model, and I can pretty much guarantee you that you will still have trouble finding the right man. And, even if you do find him, you won’t keep him for long.
The right man is rare because he is complete in-and-of himself. He doesn’t need anyone to complete him, he has his life together, and he is established. He is a leader of men, he is well respected, and he is a protector of loved ones. He is very secure in his self image, and he takes very good care of himself. Women may consider him hot, but he is both hot inside and out; therefore, I have NO idea why so many women think that they can just be half-done and find the right man.
The right man, the Alpha male, is on a quest to find the right woman. Sure, he may sleep with you if you’re hot, but that does not mean he will stay around. The real man wants a woman who is stunning both inside and out.
If you’re gorgeous, stunning, beautiful, but you seem to be having a hard time finding the right man, it may very well be that you’ve been using your beauty as a crutch most of your life. Instead, focus more on your brains.
If you really want to learn how to fully integrate yourself into an exotic specimen that’s completely balanced on all levels, read King Warrior Magician Lover. The book is cheap, and you can read it tonight if you download the free kindle app at amazon.com. It’s sooooo worth it.
This will teach you what it means to be a fully integrated person is society. A must read. If you really want to know what it takes to be the type of woman a real man wants, read my Alpha Woman post at the following link: http://unfoldingdestiny.com/?p=1072
Honestly, I hate to say it, but if you want to find the right man, you are going to have to become the right woman.
We attract into our lives the very things that we are internally.
The type of woman you are will attract the type of woman that complements you. If you are ever to find Mr. Right, you have to be Ms. Right.
Key Components and Characteristics of the Right Woman
1. Passion: You NEED to be passionate about something in your life beyond your physical appearance. The real woman is one who knows her purpose in life, and a gorgeous woman who knows her purpose is the rarest of all catches. She is the Cleopatra that history books will write about. In the end, there has to be something that’s pulling at you from the inside. You need to find your calling. True, you can try to cut corners and just find things to settle for, but that won’t male you into the most evolved woman you can be. UnfoldingDestiny isn’t about half-assing life. Find your calling, whatever it may be, and stick to it.
2. READ. Don’t be like Snookie and go through life just having read 2 books. That won’t cut it. There’s a device in my mind called the Douche-Meter, and it seems like there is a very strong correlation between douchebags and lack of reading. It seems like the less books you’ve read, the more of a douchebag a person tends to be. Now, of course, I’m just being a jerk right now, but the fact still stands that reading will take you far. Reading gives you more to talk about, it gives you greater depth. The real man does not want some single-faceted brainless slut. Expand your horizons. And, please, sex novels- sorry, romance novels- don’t cut it. Read about your purpose, read about the world, read philosophy, read some self help, read anything that will build you into a multifaceted woman. You don’t have to read about everything, but do read about the things that matter most to you. Here’s the biggest hint: The Alpha Male, the real man, knows his passion in life, and most of his reading materials deal with such things. If you find your passion, you will automatically know what things to read. If you really don’t know your passion, just try to build up your reading lists anyway, and just stretch your mind.
3. PEOPLE SKILLS. Face it: You are gonna grow old some day. Your boobs will sag, you’re gonna fart in your sleep, your skin’s gonna start to wrinkle, and you’re gonna find “pull my finger” jokes funny. Being a bitch now will get you nowhere far in life. You’re just going to end up one lonely, depressed, woman. Learn people skills. There are three books you absolutely MUST read before you die when it comes to such skills:
- How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie. This book will change your life. Don’t be disuaded by the title. Thrust your ego aside and just look into it. Mr. Right will expect that you will have the skills in this book as a natural asset of your characteristics. Do a quick search on google, and you will find this book to be one of the most recognized books in the world. Don’t be that douche that says, “Oh, I have plenty friends. I don’t need a book that teaches me how to make them.” You’re not even getting the point if you say that. The book is about having the type of personality that will take you to the highest levels of life. Fucking read it.
- Pulling Your Own Strings by Dr. Wayne Dyer. This book is on the complete opposite end of How to Win Friends and Influence People. This book is about being completely assertive in life. It teaches you how not to be fucked over by people. It teaches you how to have confidence in your own resolve, and it teaches you how to stop comparing yourself to others for your self esteem. This is a phenomenal book, and it is just as important as the other. No man wants a pushover for a wife. This book will seriously transform you into a Femme Fatale.
- Psychocybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, MD. This book is in the dead center of the two, and it will teach you the most effective way of achieving the life of your dreams. It will teach you how to turn your thoughts into a complete and utter reality. You will need this book to bring life to every corner of your life. No, that was not a typo; I really did say that this book will bring life to every corner of your life. I couldn’t think of any other way to say it. Don’t judge the book by it’s title. It’s actually a very simple read. This will teach you how to become unstoppable inside and out.
4. Secure Self Image: Yes, I understand that women are emotional creatures, and that cannot really be helped for the most part. Men actually love that women are emotional. But the woman of the highest quality is secure in her image, and she will never do anything to harm herself. This all comes from having a positive mental attitude. Get rid of your anxiety without medications. Just, learn to adopt a very cool, suave, hip, inner attitude. Approach life with a smile, and know that everything will be alright. Breathe. Forgive and forget. Let the past go, and just move on. All the advice about detachment and going with the flow you’ve learned throughout your life applies here. But, how do we go about doing such things? I recommend that you read the four books I recommended, and you should also practice meditation. Meditation will allow you to break free of you negativity, and it will place you into a much happier place. If you hate meditation, then just practice becoming more appreciative of yourself overall. Furthermore, try to help others get what they want out of life. If you can improve others’ lives in some way, you will inevitably feel better about yourself.
In the End…
The woman of the highest quality is a source of inspiration. She takes care of her body, and she spreads joy into others’ lives.
She is a woman of passion.
If you want to find the right man, if you want to find the highest quality man, you are going to have to be the highest quality woman. There are no shortcuts here.
C’mon, you’re already gorgeous. Would it really hurt you that much to pick up a fucking book and read something that could change your life?
Find your passion, live your life.
The right man will see you from a mile away, and you will have the life that most women only dream of.
Also, read Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead.

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. =)
Simply put, you must start at the core.
There are millions of paths you could potentially take in life, but none of them matter until you know your life’s purpose.
I can’t really teach you how to do that here in such a simple blog post, but if you stick around long enough, I may launch a product at some point that teaches you how to do just that.
Anyway, learn this purpose of yours. Once you learn it, you can cut through all of the chaos, distraction, and bullshit that is keeping you from achieving your greatness.
Once you know your purpose, the path toward success will still be difficult, but if you have patience while sticking to your wits, you will certainly find the way.
Unite Long Term and Short Term Focus
Not all of us are psychic. At any given moment, there may be millions of outcomes to a direct action we take. Many of us want to be psychic, and we want to see what step we should take after X, Y, Z all the while we are currently on step C. This time of future envisioning can deter us from reaching great heights.
Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Instead, just focus on the next most logical step ahead of you. This is something I learned from Eben Pagan in Wake Up Productive. Instead of worrying about what steps to take 10 steps down the road, we should just take the most logical step before us. And, once we take that step, the next step becomes illuminated. Life is set up in such a way that we are engineered to have both short term and long term vision.
Having a long term vision is absolutely fine, and it is essential for success; however, if you only have long term vision, you will never achieve any success.
You must unite the short term with the long term.
Metaphor: You are driving across the country to a specific destination (this is a long term goal). You may have put that destination into your GPS. Now, in order to get there, you have to drive. And, while you are driving, there are many small destinations you have to cross (short term goals). You will have to cross roads, bridges, valleys, interstates, highways, and etc. Without these short term destinations, you could never reach your ultimate destination.
So, I’m not saying that you should have no long term goals.
What I am saying is that you need to have both long term and short term perspective. Ideally, once you know where you want to go, you should shift your absolute focus onto the present moment and take the next most logical step at every step until you reach your destination.
I truly believe that the mind the GREATEST GPS system in the universe- not only can it show you the way to any goal you desire, but it can actually set up circumstances for you in which the goal naturally happens as a result of your thinking.
Now, I am not trying to get mystical or anything here. You can do the research yourself.
Some people call it the Reticular Activating System, others call it Synchronicity, and others call it The Law of Attraction.
Call it what you want.
The point is, what you focus on expands.
You can paint in your mind an extremely vivid picture with great details, and you must focus on this vision absolutely every day.
Become that vision.
You will find yourself naturally flowing to your goal.
But, in order for that to happen, you must keep your eyes open in the present, and you must let the universe unfold for you.
Keep your eyes open, and when opportunity strikes, you must grab it.
Now, I am not going to explain the science behind such thinking.
If you’re interested, read Psychocybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, MD.
You won’t have to play Goldilocks anymore.
The story of Goldilocks is really about finding one’s groove in life.
The problem today, though, is that there are so many choices, that it is hard to know what path to take.
Our hearts know, though.
Once you know your purpose, you live for something great.
You live for a reason greater than money (though money is still fantastic).
Passion bursts out of your soul, and you are able to make the greatest impact on society.
Passion is a contagious flame rarely experienced.
If you can become consciously aware of what you are passionate about, that passion will spread to others.
Need I say more?
Let me put it more directly: The SECOND you discover your purpose, you will no longer work for anyone ever again. Instead, you’ll be creating. You will be impacting. If you have a boss, you will see that boss is an enabler of your vision instead of an obstacle. Life just flows so much better when you follow your bliss. =)
Wealth, fame, respect, admiration, wider selection of mating, and greater comforts are some of the added things that come along with following your purpose, but the greatest benefit is that you get to create an impact.
You get to truly feel that you mattered on this planet, and you were able to contribute to a better world.
The Butterfly Effect
Chaos Theory teaches us that very big problems start off as very small, barley detectable, sparks of instances.
If we can attack a problem while it is small, it is much easier to delete.
It’s a lost easier to lose 5 pounds than it is to lost 50.
It is a lot easier to do your homework now instead of rushing through it on the train ride to school.
If we are to focus on Chaos Theory in positive ways, we’ll see that we can combine our thoughts with our actions to yield amazing results.
However, those results must be tied to our life purpose, otherwise we’ll meander much of the way and achieve nothing.
Find your life purpose.

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.
Assess Your Goals
Figure out what you want for your life. If you need help in this area, check out my previous post: http://unfoldingdestiny.com/time-whores-bitches-be-stealin-yo-time
The funny thing is that once you get everything out on paper, your life still is waiting to be lived. What can you do with written goals? Not much. Not unless you takea ction.
It’s easy to get high off of success. You figure that once you’ve written your goals down, you’ve done something so important that it warrants you to relax and not do anything for a while; however, this is the type of thinking that gets you nowhere in life.
Know all of your goals.
Pick a Few
You won’t be able to attack all of your goals simultaneously; however, if you don’t start taking action today, you will pretty much accomplish nothing. Pick a few at a time. Start focusing on those few, and see if you can capitalize on those gains.
Over time, if you feel that you can handle more, then certainly feel free to add more goals to the list. Make sure, though, that you can see these goals to their completion.
You really need to find a coach. This is the best way to get anywhere far in life. A coach will hold you accountable, he or she will make sure you are following your goals. If you want to lose weight, hire a fitness coach. You may not be able to afford a personal trainer, but you might be able to have telephone consultations with one for twice a month. If you want to improve your dating life, hire an attraction coach. If you want to become a better speaker, hire a public speaking coach.
Many times, if not every time, you will be able to learn something within a few hours with a coach that would have taken you six months or more if you had done things alone. That’s the power of having a great coach by your side. People usually scoff at the idea of hiring a coach because they say that it’s too expensive, a waste of time, and a waste of self effort; i.e., a critique is that we shouldn’t need to hire a coach for something we are perfectly capable of doing on our own.
However, will power doesn’t last very long. A coach is someone who can really hold us accountable for all of our actions.
Friendship and Success
It is ALWAYS great to have a coach and a friend working with you side by side.
With a friend, you should be making calls DAILY. Tell your friend what you want to accomplish on any given day. This friend will hold you accountable for all of your goals. You MUST accomplish all of the goals you bounce off at your friend. You wlld do the same for him or her.
It’s okay to have different goals. All that matters is that you both watch each others’ backs.
My friend Aaron and I shot a bunch of goals off each other the other night, and today is one of the most productive days of my life. Everything feels amazing. It’s WONDERFUL to see what one can accomplish with time management and prioritization.
If you stay in touch with your friend every night, you will excel really far on your journey.
Once you reach out to your coach again, you’ll have made substantial strides.
Now, if you can’t hire a coach, it is still great to have friendship accountability. You will still get very far. A coach, though, will exponentiate your success.
Do it quickly.

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.
I won’t go into the details because Robert Greene does an amazing job talking about this man in The 48 Laws of Power. Go read this book ASAP because it will certainly change your life.
Dostoyevsky was set up to be killed by a firing squad. It was all a ploy, however. Nobody was actually supposed to die, but the men on stage believed they were experiencing their final moments. Suddenly, a messenger on horseback with a message from the king thwarted the operation. Instead, the writer was sent to 4 years of imprisonment.
That close encounter with death made him realize all the time he had wasted his whole life, and he vowed never to waste a single moment again- he vowed to live each moment like it were his last.
He cranked out novel after novel fervently until he died.
Now, you don’t have to meet with such a dire consequence in order to capitalize over your time.
Let’s talk about how you can accomplish all of your dreams.
Oh, and by the way, that watch up there is an actual watch. It’s very sexy, and I’m going to buy it as a reminder to myself.
It’s called “The Accurate”, and it was designed by Mr. Jones Watches. If you want to go buy one, go for it. I think it costs about $150, and they’re usually sold out.
Anyway, let’s blast this out of the park.
Create a Bucket List
This is the first thing you need to do because it’s a JAW-DROPPING, EYE-RIPPING, exercise.
Open up an Excel spreadsheet, and then create a 101 goals list.
If you don’t own Excel, no excuses; go to www.google.com/docs and use the free spreadsheet they provide.
There’s a great benefit in using Google’s service in that everything is online; therefore, it is impossible to accidentally leave your spreadsheet on your home computer.
You want to put down 101 goals.
Is this hard?
It took me 7 hours to write mine. Now, I’ll be honest: This wasn’t entirely focused time. I procrastinated a LOT because of how hard this exercise was.
After the 10th goal, i was struggling.
You see, this exercise is so life-changing because it shows you exactly how your life would have played out had you not made the list.
Without a bucket list, your life plays out as a series of random events, and you barely have much control over the direction or outcome of how these events unfold.
I can’t really tell you what to put on that list because this is your list.
Now, some will argue: “But, I already know my goals. I just have 5 goals in life.”
To that, I respond the following:
1. If you only have 5 goals in life, YOU SUCK, and you are WASTING your life. Crawl out from under your rock and do more with yourself. Aim for more.
2. You can add those goals onto the spreadsheet document, and you can definitely place major emphasis on them, but put in other goals as well.
Suddenly, that trip to Fiji seems more realistic than ever before!
Don’t limit yourself due to faulty belief patterns- absolutely anything is possible.
If you put down: “Run Roca with Jay Z”, every single person in the world, including Jay Z, might tell you that it is impossible; however, your unconscious mind has ways of making things happen that nobody yet fully understands.
If you give yourself a goal, you believe in it’s attainment, and you actively take action toward its completion, you will absolutely achieve it.
The first victory must be on the inside. You must win before you win. You must act before you act.
My method is different. I do not rush into actual work. When I get a new idea, I start at once building it up in my imagination, and make improvements and operate the device in my mind. When I have gone so far as to embody everything in my invention, every possible improvement I can think of, and when I see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form the final product of my brain.- Nikola Tesla
Create your bucket list.
Next, look at your list of 101 goals.
Print them out.
No fussing; it’s only a little over 2 pages.
Put ABC priorities to them.
This is a tactic I learned from Brian Tracy.
A: I MUST do this.
B: I SHOULD do this.
C: It would be nice to do this.
Five Year Vision
Now, look at all of your goals and put dots next to the ones that you would like to accomplish within the next five years.
Pick the ones that you knew that you could accomplish if you simply devoted enough time to them.
Also, pick the ones that you knew you could accomplish if you just had more belief in yourself for their attainment.
When you walk down the street and ask 10 people where they will be in five years, almost none of them will give you a legitimate answer.
I read in a book a while ago that there is a reason for this- I’m sorry, I forget the book’s title.
Basically, author stated that personal development is something new. Even a hundred years back, most people did not have the luxury of personal development. They knew that once they stumbled onto a job, they would work at it for the rest of their lives.
Sure, there were outliers like Benjamin Franklin, Napoleon, and Charles Darwin; however, most people had no idea that massive success was even possible for themselves.
This habit passed on for years, and as a result, most people just “wing” their lives.
You’ll be an outlier the MOMENT you put those dots on the paper. That is how amazing this exercise is.
You will notice that there will be a mixture of A’s, B’s, and C’s around these dots because you are choosing all of the goals (big, moderate, small) that you want to accomplish within the next five years.
Next, put numbers behind the letters.
For all of the A’s, go through “A1, A2, A3, A4″ and etc. for every goal.
1 is most important. 2 is a little less important.
This will help you zero in on what needs your absolute attention first.
Now, there may be a few goals in each letter category that share equal importance. For instance, you may have two “A” goals designated towards writing a New York Times bestseller and winning a bodybuilding competition. To you, both goals are of equal importance. If such is the case, you may give them the same number. So, they can both be “A1″, if you like.
Do the same for the B’s and the C’s.
Time for a Ne-Yo break! Heh, heh, his song “Part of the List” just couldn’t be left out of this post.
Five Year Clarity
Now that you have your list numerically prioritized, you must make some decisions.
Start with the A’s.
You actually need to make an A1.
Before, I said it was already for you to have various conflicts of interests, such as was the case with writing a bestseller and bodybuilding.
But, I only said that to help your mind more easily finish the task.
Now, really focus on all of the A’s and try to determine what is the absolute number 1, highest priority goal you need to put your attention towards.
Then, what comes 2nd?
Do the same for the B’s and C’s.
During this task, you are setting clear definitions as to what is most important to you.
The Pareto Principle
Zen teaches us that we accomplish more by doing less.
The Pareto principle is one such principle that advocates a similar logic.
In essence, people have many wishy-washy, undefined, goals.
You are different because you put your goals down in clear writing; therefore you know EXACTLY what you want out of life. Good for you!
Many people are worried that if they do not achieve all of their goals, they will have no success in life; however, if you examine the lives of the most successful people, it’s that they have mastered the power of concentration; they don’t try to do thousands of things as once, rather, they focus on doing a few things extremely well.
They have PLENTY of goals, PLENTY, but they don’t focus on all of them at once.
The Pareto principle enforces the 80/20 rule, which simply means that the greatest change is influenced by focusing on a few key behaviors.
80% of your net worth will be caused by 20% of your goals.
In other words, if you put 100% dedication into just a MEASLY 20% of your ideas, you will have an outcome that will give you 80% back in rewards.
What you need to do next is to learn the power of. . .
You must learn to focus on one goal at a time. Put your entire focus onto that one goal.
You have a list of many A’s, B’s, and C’s. It will be nearly impossible, at first, to prioritize your whole life so that you are going after every single goal at once. That is a recipe for disaster.
Instead, choose a few vital goals.
You may want to focus on your top five A goals and JUST keep it at that until you have achieved them.
Feel free to have more than five goals, but don’t cram too many in. And, definitely keep the list above 4 goals.
If you have too few goals, you won’t feel pressured into accomplishing things on time because you will feel as though you have all the time in the world.
By having a nice stream of goals, it makes it so that you have to do everything in a timely fashion, otherwise you won’t be able to achieve anything.
Attempt every goal every day, if feasible. Sure, they are exceptions to the rule, and you will know where those exceptions lay. Be honest to yourself, though. Most of the time, you will absolutely be able to go after each goal daily.
ALWAYS start with the most important goal first.
Focus on it until it is complete.
If it’s a long term goal, give yourself a restricted time for its completion. When the time runs out, you stop and you move on toward your next goal.
If it’s a deadline goal, then work yourself on the most important task until it is ABSOLUTELY complete. Sure, you may not be able to complete a few other goals during your day, but at least you will have completed the most essential one.
Remember the Pareto principle? 80% of your success will come from only 20% of what you focus on.
LONG TERM GOALS: Restrict your time. If you think you need 8 hours to accomplish something, give yourself only 2 hours to do it. This will force you to cut through all the bullshit and actually get it done. Once the time is up, you quit and move onto the next step- even if you didn’t finish your task.
DEADLINE GOALS: WORK ON IT until completion. Forget the other goals.
Since your 101 list deals mainly with long term goals, you’ll be focusing on restricted time.
Most of the time, you don’t NEED so much time to do something.
Eating breaks, phone conversations, e-mails, facebook, and other distractions can easily eat into your time.
Now, in whatever best way you can, take those 5 + goals (hopefully you don’t have more than 10- and even 10 is stretching it), and put them onto a separate sheet of paper.
These are your highest priority tasks for the next five years.
Take your highest priority task, and make a five year outline. Don’t get too detailed- this shouldn’t take more than a few minutes (if not 30 seconds).
Make five benchmarks, one per year.
For instance, if you want to write a bestseller, you may have the following outline:
1st year: Research
2nd year: Work on an amazing plot. Create character identities. Know the ending and work backwards from there. Figure out the back stories for the characters; even if you won’t be writing the characters’ histories down, it makes the story more realistic if you, as an author, know everything there is to be known about the characters. It will show in your writing.
3rd year: Write 10 pages every week for a year. That equals 520 pages.
4th year: Revise.
5th year: Hire and agent and try to get published.
Crazy scenario, huh? You’re probably thinking, “huhhh? I can take ALL of that and probably even condense it into one year.”
No Shit, sherlock.
But, if it weren’t for this five year plan, you probably wouldn’t have ever written that novel.
You see, many of your goals are in closer reach than you think.
Some goals will certainly require five years, and you will automatically know which ones.
Do this for 5-10 of the goals you have chosen.
Really try to STRETCH each goal, like i did, so that it must be completed in exactly five years, and not sooner.
Take those five year plans and make them realistic- you might only need one or two years to accomplish a goal, instead of five.
DON’T get too specific. The more general, the better. You just want a rough sketch for now.
For instance, with the goal of writing, you were probably blown away when you realized that in order to write half a thousand pages, all you need to do is write 10 pages a week. Hell, even if you wrote one page a day for a year, that would be 365 pages in total.
Most people want instant gratification, and that leads them to nowhere.
Forget that, and just love your goals. Love the process.
Feel free to make more benchmarks, if you wish.
But, it is just important that you start now.
For the most part, you already know what you need to do.
The Greatest Day on Earth
People waste SO much time.
Brian Tracy taught me that most people just don’t keep track of time.
Those who do generally keep track of whether it’s morning, afternoon, evening, or night.
Above average individuals keep track of what is happening at every hour.
But, the most successful people in the world keep track of every minute.
This is what you must do.
I have supplied you with a PDF here.
Print it out because goals that are put in writing are millions of times more affective.
It’s only 2 pages- you can afford the costs.
You will be taking notes in the margins of this document, and you will keep track of things that waste your time. You will keep notice of the things that thwarted you from experiencing your day fully.
The day is broken up into 15 minute intervals.
Since you are working on long term goals, restrict your time.
This also works on school assignments because school is a long-term endeavor.
For deadlines, still restrict your time, but focus on each task until it is absolutely complete.
Don’t allot 5 hours for something you may only need 2 hours for.
During those 2 hours, go balls deep into your work and complete it.
Stop daydreaming, stop texting, stop watching porn.
Your dreams are closer to your flesh than you think.
Just get off your ass and work.

The Collective Unconscious
Carl Jung was a genius. He was seriously one of the greatest minds to have ever walked the face of this planet, and he brought forth a lot of knowledge to this world. You probably haven’t heard much about him, though.
The reason for this is that schooling sucks. The education systems of the world are horrible, and they are mainly constructed to form you into someone who does not use his or her brain.
School never taught me the the type of things I share on this blog. School only tried to mold me into a blind man who will never question authority.
Even though school certainly has its merits, I am displeased at the way education is structured. There is so much censored knowledge that it doesn’t surprise me why so many people are stupid these days.
You’re an exception.
Now, let’s thrust my rant aside and talk more about Dr. Jung.
Jung discovered that there is a web of thoughts that pervades all of existence. It connects every single mind together, and he named this the Collective Unconscious.
It was from this place that our dreams came to us at night with messages.
Suddenly, dreams were no longer images trapped within the mind; rather, they were symbols sent from the ethers.
This article does not aim to prove the existence of the collective unconscious- I can do that at some other point; rather, this article serves just to introduce you to the phenomenon.
Jung, who was once Freud’s protege, quickly became a rival of the psychoanalytic movement. Jung refused to believe that the unconscious was a barbaric, animalistic, sex hungry, mechanism. He believed that there was much more going beneath the surface of our realities, and that the truth could be found within the shadows of ourselves.
Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.- Carl Jung
Jung’s encounter with the collective unconscious happened quite accidentally; however, anyone who studies Jung will argue that he did not believe in accidents, and I am right up the same alley. According to Arthur Miller’s 137, Freud and Jung used to work together in a psychiatric word. There was a schizophrenic individual there who constantly talked about visions he was having of a man with a huge penis standing in front of the Sun. The penis would wave all over his body, and semen would spew all over the world. Jung and Freud found this hysterical, and they would laugh at the situation with great intensity in the privacies of their own offices.
The incident that would change everything, however, occurred when Jung pulled open a book of symbols. On one of the pages, there was the exact same image the schizophrenic man had described; i.e., there was a man standing in front of the Sun, and his penis was swinging around and spewing sperm all over the world.
This amazed Jung. He realized that there was no way that the patient could have read this book. Jung dug deeper, and he started doing research. He turned to dreams for guidance, and he realized that people all over the world shared similar dream experiences. That, no matter where one would go, the symbols in dreams were relatively similar.
This led to the discovery of the Collective Unconscious- the realm from which all dreams enter our minds at night, the realm which holds all human thought, the realm that makes telepathic communication possible.
Jung ended up conducting dream analyses. He believed that there is many a broken man, and that one of the best ways toward full integration and wholeness of the self is by analyzing our dreams. Our dreams have messages for us that reflect the inner workings of our souls, and if we were to learn from their teachings, our lives would reach pinnacles unknown to the world and our preconceived perceptions of what is possible. In layman’s terms, if we were to pay attention to the messages in our dreams, we would be BLOWN AWAY by how fast our lives change.
He had patients coming in from all over the world to experience his new approach towards psychology. It was a major success. Jung went to great lengths in order to receive his knowledge. He studied alchemy heavily, he consulted the ancient Chinese I-Ching text in order to help him predict the future, and he studied symbols. Scientists called him a nut, a mystic, a dissenter. Jung, however, believed that mankind had fallen prey to the Neutonian model of the world; i.e, he believed that people were letting to of the powerful faculties inherent within all humans, and they were adopting a model of science which limited human growth. In other words, by becoming too distracted by scientific jargon, people were letting go of the great human potential that lies within all of us, they had fallen away from the understanding that the human mind is the greatest tool in the universe.
Jung began to see figures, such as the one in the pictured above, in his dreams. He realized that these figures were mandalas. Whenever a person was reaching some sort of wholeness integration, he or she would see a mandala in a dream. This is one of the greatest ways to know if you are on the right path in life. Jung noticed that 3 was a sacred number for mandalas. It represented the trinity; however, he also realized that 3 was an incomplete number, because the mandalas he witnessed seemed to be balanced by the number 4.
According to 137, the trinity was a misunderstanding. The trinity took away femininity from the struggle of humanity. Because it focused on three masculine figures- the father, the son, and the holy ghost-, mankind had been stripped away of its creative essence which is symbolized by the great mother.
The Pauli Effect
According to 137, Wolfgang was a genius with a dark side. He led to many discoveries in Quantum Physics, yet he was riddled with depression. He couldn’t seem to find a mate for much of his life, and he looked down on himself. Of course, he would never share this with his friends- men of great reputation at the very least.
Pauli was the type of man who would ace all of his classes without ever attending any. He was one who loved the night scene, and he frequented many raunchy places where he would satisfy his sexual appetite by sleeping with prostitutes.
The darkness of his life led him through much depression. The situation got worse when machinery would die wherever he would go. Arthur Miller states in 137 that physicists were a very superstitious bunch- some even kept rabbits’ feet for good luck. The Pauli Effect, as it went on to become known as, really riled up the science community. Wherever he would go, entire labs would malfunction.
Pauli aimed to have his name tied to Physics. He was determined to become a legend. He had to figure out why Quantum levels behaved the way they did. Long story short, he realized that there were 4 quantum levels in atoms, and this revolutionized science. Suddenly the number 4 was getting the validation and recognition it deserved.
But, this wasn’t enough. Pauli’s depression was taking over, so he decided to do the unthinkable: He went forth and sought out Carl Jung’s help in secrecy.
Together, they deciphered dreams. Pauli spent a great amount of time with Jung. The Doctor helped him achieve great wholeness. Pauli ended up leaving Jung after a little while; however, he exchanged correspondence with the Doctor until the end of his life.
The Pauli Effect was the result of some inner workings that were hidden within Pauli’s unconscious.
Jung had to bring these thoughts and feelings to surface by analyzing Pauli’s dreams, which were becoming more and more filled with Mandalas.
Using the knowledge of the sacredness of four, Jung ended up discovering much about the dream world.
Dreams became a science, and Jung revolutionized their study. It is clear now that you must pay attention to your dreams as well.
- Buy a dream journal. Keep this private.
- Write down your dream the SECOND you wake up. Don’t hesitate. I’ve forgotten many dreams due to hesitance. I would wake up and let myself unwind for a few seconds while telling myself that I wouldn’t forget the dream; however, a few seconds is all it took for me to forget much great detail. Have a pen nearby, and start writing the second your eyes open.
- Pay attention to colors and sounds.
- Try to remember dialog.
- Flow. Just let your pen rip across the paper. Don’t worry about being neat. Just let all of your thoughts out.
A great resource you can use to decipher your own dreams is Betty Bethards” The Dream Book. I use it personally, and I find it amazing. Here is a direct link to the book: http://www.amazon.com/Dream-Book-Symbols-Self-Understanding/dp/0967979013/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1282800836&sr=8-1
You should also consult anything written by Jung. His writing generally drags on, though, so you will need a good attention span to stick to it.
Dreams are Mirrors and Symbols
Don’t think that a certain dream means that your life will inevitably play out as such. I won’t talk about Deja Vu’s or premonitions, because they are a completely different category of dreaming; however, for the most part, most of our dreams are just reflections of our internal states.
If you are a generally negative person, you will have bad dreams.
If you are generally a positive person, you will have nice dreams.
If you are worried about a situation, your dreams will show you images of worry.
If you are confident about a situation, your dreams will show you images of inspiration.
Therefore, stop trying to think that dreams will dictate how your life will play out. Most dreams are just reflections of our inner beliefs.
If you change your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, you will be able to have better dreams.
Dreams are more like guiders than anything else.
For the most part, they just give you feedback on how your life is playing out given your current views. They are phenomenal teachers, and they will certainly tell you how close or far away you are from a goal.
Also realize that everything in your dream is a projection of yourself. If you see dreams filled with beautiful people, it means that you see yourself in beautiful ways.
If you see somebody is sad, then realize that a certain part of yourself is sad.
I had a dream a few nights ago where I should by sister in the head and killed her while she was asleep. I translated this as: I had killed the feminine side of myself.
I didn’t really go further into the dream, I didn’t dig deep into it. I believe it was a positive message, because I had an intense metamorphosis a few days ago.
This goes on to demonstrate something else: Dreams are Symbolic.
Even though death in real life may be tragic, death in a dream can be one of the greatest things that can happen to you. Death generally translates to a rebirth. It’s like the caterpillar that bursts out of the cocoon and becomes a butterfly. In order for anything new to emerge, the old self must die. To get a better understanding of this, read my The Creator, Follower, Participator, and the Destroyer article.
You must see yourself as the creator of your life, you must see yourself as the cause for everything that happens, and you must treat your dreams as servants. They just tell you whether or not you are on course.
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right. - Henry Ford
When you record your dreams, you are getting a full glimpse into your life, you are tapping into the collective unconscious, and you are being led by forces higher than yourself. Give it a try. So many people underestimate the potential of the human mind. Don’t you make that same mistake, punk.
We ARE in charge of our lives, and our fate belongs to us. Treat your dreams as servants, not as masters.
Now, of course, this logic doesn’t apply as clearly to Deja Vu’s and Premonitions. Those are somewhat exceptions to the rule.
NOTE: Almost all of the information in this article came from Arthur Miller’s book 137. If you would like to learn more about the amazing story between these two scientists, definitely read the book. Here is a direct link:

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.
And just like A Tale of Two Cities, these are certainly the best of times and the worst of times. How can we keep track of our lives when everything around us seems to be spinning like a hurricane? How do we stay steadfast to our vision?
It is so important to have a dream.
It is even more important to be able to track that dream, to pull it out of the ethers and to measure your progression toward its attainment.
Even in today’s advanced society, many people neglect one of the best ways to measure one’s progression towards a dream:
Without a journal, your life is going to pretty much play out like Groundhog Day. It seriously sucks living in a pattern of constant stagnation where there is absolutely no growth, evolution, or involution. Sadly, so many people use their own damn volition to live such mundane lives. It’s the whole duckling syndrome, the sheep syndrome, the conformist’s decree, whatever you wanna call it: people don’t know what they want for themselves, so they follow others.
You are different, though, aren’t you?
You were meant for more.
Hell, you may not even know your purpose, but that won’t stop you from planning out a life of excellence, will it?
Of course not!
Fail to plan, plan to fail. – Proverb
Journaling helps you keep track of shit.
It helps you stay in touch with who you are.
It allows you to keep track of your inner workings.
You get to actually see how your mind evolves throughout the years.
It’s SO much fun going back and reading passages containing insights you had
ARNOLD Did It
If there is ONE thing we can learn from the Governator is that there is MAGIC in written words. This man has done it all.
He’s gone from pro body builder to Mr. Universe.
He’s gone from Mr. Universe to a Hollywood actor.
He went from a sub par Hollywood Actor to the lead star of one of the greatest action movie series to have ever hit the market: The Terminator.
He went from action movie superstar to the governor of California.
Is there anything this man CAN’T do?
No, there isn’t.
Every accomplishment he has achieved so far, for the most part, was written in his journals before he even accomplished anything on the measurable level.
The book that changed everything for him was The Magic of Believing.
There is Magic in Words
There is intense magic in your words. When you write by hand, you active hundreds of tiny muscles that work in harmony with your brain to create new neuropathways. These pathways enable your mind to see a separate reality, one in which your world consists only of the images you have written down.
Then, there is a part of your brain called the RAS- the reticular activating system- that works its ass off to bring you into alignment with the things you have written down. It looks for patterns in your environment that stick out, it looks for patterns that show promise of bringing you closer to your goal.
When you write down your goals, when you journal your life and measure your accomplishments, you’re kicking your RAS (pun intended) in gear.
There’s a more holistic philosophy behind this which essentially teaches that whatever you focus upon in life expands.
I’m not here to administer any holistic doctrine as of this moment.
All I am saying is that there is magic in words.
When you write down your intentions, there is a certain kind of spirit that takes off within the ink, and they breathe in a life of their own.
It is important to WRITE by hand- don’t type your journals.
You will realize that journaling is a very intimate process, and the book you are writing in really becomes an extension of your soul. This is something that computers can’t really match.
The way you move a pencil is much more intimate than the way your fingers blaze across the keyboard.
What to Journal About
This isn’t high school anymore.
OMG Mike is SUCH A DOUCHEBAG. I HATE HIM! I HATE HIM! I HATE HIM! UGH! HE MAKES ME SO SICK. Like seriously, WTF?
I LIKE HIM SO MUCH, WHY IS HE SO MEAN TO ME? sDASDASdadqw3eqrfef AHHHHH!!!! IM GONNA RIP MY HAIR OUT!
Please, none of that.
Realize: WHAT YOU FOCUS ON EXPANDS. Whatever you feed your mind constantly, your RAS (pun intended) works night and day to bring your commands into reality.
Don’t write about all the messed up things going on in your life.
Your journal is supposed to be transformational.
Instead, write about how you would like life to BE.
Actually, the best way to journal is to write from the standpoint that you have already achieved the very thing you desire.
If you can’t write in such a tense because you can’t find yourself believing the words, then certainly put your goals off into the future. At least have SOMETHING written.
Write something to strive towards.
Write about goals, write about ambitions.
If you had a dream, write that dream out. Try to decipher its meaning.
Don’t mention anyone that brings you ill feelings; therefore, leave out all references of Mike, the douchebag.
Write about your thoughts.
Write about your feelings.
And if you are feeling down, sure, definitely write about it. But, when you write about negative feelings, don’t end your entry on a negative note. Instead, try to find a way to make that entry more constructive so that it ends off positively; therefore, if you ARE feeling bad, and you have nowhere else to turn to, you can certainly say the following:
Mike’s been annoying me somewhat these days, but I just cant help be feel pleased by his behavior. I know that I like him, and I can’t help but think that part of him likes me as well. But, if nothing happens, I’ll be fine. I feel bad, but I know that all pain is just a sign of resistance to the present moment. I don’t need to feel bad. There are plenty more fish in the sea, and there will be plenty more opportunities for intimacy and love in the future. For now, I need to focus on myself and become an even greater woman.
Write however you want to write. Just make sure that all your words bring you to a greater unfolding of the self.
Progression is always sexy.
Journaling lets you realize how much you grew throughout your life.
One day, after you are long gone from this world, somebody will read this journal of yours.
What impression would you like to leave behind?
What would your grandkids say if they read your journal?
You will be remembered for everything you have done in this life.
What we do in life, echoes in eternity.- Maximus, Gladiator
How will you be remembered?
A GREATTTTTTTTTT exercise you can do to start yourself on the write foot is to write your own eulogy.

You are a living, breathing, magnet that participates in a universe which has been created by solely your own thoughts. Wise men have said all throughout the ages that our thoughts make our world. Perhaps they spoke figuratively; however, the power of their words resonated a truth so concrete that up until the 20th century, it could only be validated by a feeling in the gut. For millennia, the gut was seen as the source of all truth and reason; however, the birth of logical reason thrust the power of the gut aside so that science may adopt an approach which could be measured and scaled. Viva la Revolucion! The 20th century came, and along with it, we obtained a wealth of knowledge which could finally substantiate the claims that the sages of yester could only convince us through rhetoric without the foundation of measurable proof to validate it.
Clearly and succinctly, the premise of this article is to evidence that our thoughts create our reality. I make no small claim when I address this situation. It is of my aim to give strong evidence that our thinking literally creates the cosmos which surround us, from the greatest star to the smallest thread of string. The world in which we exist is defined completely by our observation of it, and it could not exist the way it does if it were not for our observation. In The Greatest Secret Earl Nightingale states, “Throughout history, the great wise men and teachers, philosophers, and prophets, have disagreed with one another on many different things. It is only on this one point that they are in complete and unanimous agreement- the key to success and the key to failure is this: We Become What We Think About.” Men all the way from Aristotle and Socrates to Descarte and Einstein believed this notion, though they stated it in different words due to their differences of person. Einstein stated, “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” So, my dear reader, do thoughts create our realities? They indeed do, and if you let me proceed with my claim, I am convinced that you as well be led through a great journey of enlightening information that could quite possibly change your entire life. By combining three laws the world has proven to be completely and utterly true by the name of God and Science, we will explain how thoughts create reality by combining the law of gravity, the law of observation, and the laws of energy into a fulcrum by which we can leverage the postulate referenced in the hypothesis.
Our dear genius, bringer of fire through the form of science, Sir Isaac Newton is greatly attributed to a story in which he sat under an apple tree and discovered a force he went on to call gravity. Most men and women are familiar with one of the laws of gravity- and yes, there is more than one law of gravity. This law that we are familiar with is, “What goes up, must come down.” There is proof and validity of this claim on any corner of earth. If you want to have a nice experiment to prove this, you could jump off of a skyscraper and witness the downfall of the empire you struggled your whole life to create, only to see it literally shatter on concrete. Our intellectual sociopath (he was not a very nice man) also discovered that there was a second law of gravity. His first mere observation was that this planet had a certain force that brought everything together and made objects stick to the ground. His second observation became the second law of gravity, which is something not many men and women are aware of consciously because they take it for granted. The second law states that every single thing in the universe has a gravitational pull. Yes, this means a cup of tea, a bowl of noodles, a ball of yarn, a piece of string, your eye ball, your left toenail, an unsharpened pencil, a coffin, and a car all have their own gravitational orbit. What this means is that if we were to place a Lamborghini in the far reaches of outer space and place a pencil around it, the pencil would orbit around the Lamborghini. Understand this and believe this! My dear, unfaithful, disbelieving, reader, understand this clearly. For, does not Jupiter carry an abundance of moons, whereas earth has merely one? There is a clear link between mass and gravitational pull. No pun intended, size does matter. Even gas and light have a gravitational orbit. Is it not true that eight planets (Pluto is no longer considered a planet) orbit this great ball of hydrogen we have collectively labeled as the sun? The question we must address now, however, is the mere observation that if every single substance in the universe (be it solid, liquid, or gas) has a gravitational orbit, then why do not all things in our world crash into each other? Why does not the car that is parked in front of your living quarters crash into the door that leads you in? There is a very simple answer for this, and I do stress that it is not completely profound due to is obviousness of nature. Earth’s gravitational pull is the strongest in this world, so instead of things crashing into each other, they are drawn to the core of this great, life sustaining planet.
Inquisitive reader, let us examine the law of energy now. Think for a second of how a person may be similar to a table, a quarter, or a pineapple. Think deeply. There is truly a connection which can be made here. I do say that there is an absolute, concrete, fundamental similarity between a car and an apple. Let’s dig deep, shall we? Take a look in my microscope, and I will show you how similar we truly are. Do you see the atoms? Ahhh, yes! We have hit near the core. Was it not our friend John Dalton who first proposed solid reasoning for the atom’s existence? And was it not the Rutherford experiments which went on to fully substantiate the realm of the atom? There is much evidence for the existence of the atom. And now, we must probe even further into the atom to find more uniformity. Every single atom is made of electrons, protons, and neutrons- which, by and far, are just negative, positive, and neutral charges of energy moving at speeds faster than the speed of light. Probing even further, we find the smallest known structure to have ever been discovered by present science: the quark, which is merely a strand of energy. It is quite clear that the universe is made of energy. Take not my word for it; however, take Physicist Stephen Hawking’s words instead.
There are something like ten million million million million million million million million million million million million million million (1 with eighty zeroes after it) particles in the region of the universe that we can observe. Where did they all come from? The answer is that, in quantum theory, particles can be created out of energy in the form of particle/antiparticle parts. But that just raises the question of where the energy came from. The answer is that the total energy of the universe is exactly zero. The matter in the universe is made out of positive energy.( generationterrorists)
Every single thing in the universe is made of energy. It is the base of every single form of matter in existence from the invisible ultraviolet light to the substance upon which you are seated, my friend.
Third, we must take into account the law of observation. This law simply states that energy follows thought. The observer effect simply states that the observation of a subject increases the likelihood of its occurrence, and it also validates the existence of the particle. Napoleon Hill stated in his masterpiece Think and Grow Rich, “thoughts are truly things.” He was simply alluding to the observer effect. One of the rules of the scientific method is for the experimenter to be completely detached from the experiment so that his observations may not trigger a desired result. What one must understand is that this effect takes place not only on the macroscopic level, but it has an instant, measurable result on the microscopic level as well- many times, the change is seen much more quickly at the quantum level than it is on the compound level by which we can use our five senses to measure something without the aide of equipment. In the middle of the 20th century, there was a battle between two of the greatest scientists to have ever lived- Niels Bohr and Einstein. Niels Bohr was one of the founding fathers of quantum physics. He is attributed to having taught that energy exists in waves; however, Einstein disagreed. Einstein believed that energy existed in particles. This turned out to be a heated battle between the two scientists. Albert Einstein believed that Quantum theory lacked proof or validity in the science world. Niels highly disagreed. According to What the Bleep “The visible world is the invisible organization of energy” (Pagels)”. Thoughts are waves of energy that fly all over the universe. They come to us in our dreams, in our nightmares, in our perceptions, and then they project into our reality. A person’s world is like a mirror that catches every single desire and intention he or she has and reflects it back as a single image. But the way that person recognizes the image is based on his or her perception of it. One might perceive it optimistically, while another might perceive it pessimistically. The world he or she lives in reflects on the perception of his or her thoughts. People who think poorly of themselves and poorly of the world live in a state of poverty. But in contrast, people who think richly of themselves and richly of the world live in a state of wealth. The essence of reality is that people are drawn to people, places, and things which compare to their thoughts and perceptions. Einstein and Bohr entered the grand battle of science. The argument grew so large that a conference, The Copenhagen Conference, was summoned. In this conference, the room was split in half. One half was Einstein’s followers, the other half was Bohr’s followers. Two microscopes were set up in order to prove whether energy existed as waves or as particles. On Einstein’s side of the room, every single scientist who looked into the microscope saw particles; however, everyone on Bohr’s side saw waves. This began to erupt into an argument until someone on Bohr’s side interceded and told the Einsteinians, “Look into the microscope, but try to see waves instead of particles.” After some hesitance, the Einsteinians decided to follow the instructions. To their surprise, this time they saw waves of energy. This revelation became known as the observer effect. The observer effect simply states that for anything to exist, it must be perceived. The best way to understand this is to imagine yourself in the eyes of a germ. When we look into the sky, we see stars and galaxies spread across great distances. When a germ looks at us, it does not see us as a whole mass. Instead, it sees within our cells, it sees the gaps between each pore, it does not see organs. Rather, it sees particles suspended in the air in a certain rhythm. We are solar systems to the germ. Furthermore, to a germ, mankind probably does not exist as anything but another solar system to its perception. The Copenhagen experiment gave substantial evidence that energy follows thought. Our mere thinking transmutes the ethers of the universe into measurable, conceivable, observable reality. According to ScienceDaily, “Severe psychological stress may be linked to Breast Cancer.” Stress is an emotion based on our thinking and reaction toward an external, or internal, stimulus. Energy truly does follow thought. A quick experiment one might conduct is to think of the right knee cap (any body part will suffice) without touching it. Within seconds, you will feel sensations on the observed part of the body. Scientifically what just occurred is your mind sent a signal down your nervous system to the selected body part, and the body part sent a signal back up to the mind. The nervous system is constructed of nothing but nerve endings which use electricity to run the body. Electricity is energy.
At hand, we have substantially evidenced that thoughts govern energy in the body, but we still have not proven that thoughts have any affect outside of the body. Let us turn to our great and faithful Physicist Brian Greene. In Dr. Green’s book The Elegant Universe, he writes about the four forces that pervade the universe.
String theory proclaims, for instance, that the observed particle properties—that is, the different masses and other properties of both the fundamental particles and the force particles associated with the four forces of nature (the strong and weak nuclear forces, electromagnetism, and gravity)—are a reflection of the various ways in which a string can vibrate. Just as the strings on a violin or on a piano have resonant frequencies at which they prefer to vibrate—patterns that our ears sense as various musical notes and their higher harmonics—the same holds true for the loops of string theory. But rather than producing musical notes, each of the preferred mass and force charges are determined by the string’s oscillatory pattern. The electron is a string vibrating one way, the up-quark is a string vibrating another way, and so on.
Brian Greene writes that there are four forces that govern the universe, the first two of which most people are aware: (1) Gravity, (2) Electromagnetic Energy, (3) Strong Force, (4), Weak force. According to Mcgoodwin’s summary of The Elegant Universe,
The fundamental forces and their force charges are the strong force (they glue quarks together, possible charges are red, green, and blue), electromagnetic (e.g., the electric charge of quarks can be 2/3 or -1/3 ), weak force (related to beta decay, charge can be 1/2 or -1/2), and gravity. These forces are mediated by the gluon, the photon, the weak gauge bosons W and Z, and the graviton resp. (with relative strengths of 1E44, 1E42, 1E39, and 1, resp.)
Gravity is the force that keeps atoms stuck to other atoms and substances; however the inside of an atom is extremely chaotic. The forces within an atom are moving at speeds faster than the speed of light, and they are constantly coming in and out of the structure- this has been called the electron cloud. According to Dr. Greene, gravity is not sufficient enough force to hold these inner workings together. Imagine trying to force the positive poles of two magnets together, and one will clearly see the dilemma at hand. When there are many electrons in a highly charged field of space, there can be much repulsion. This is where electromagnetic force comes in. David Greene states in his book a very nice example of the strength of electromagnetic energy as opposed to gravity. Paraphrased, he states, that we should imagine that we are holding an electron clenched between our right index finger and thumb, and we should hold another electron in the same manner by our left hand. Our right bicep will represent the strength of gravity. In order for our left bicep to represent the strength of electromagnetic energy, it must be stretched to the opposite end of the universe. Electromagnetic energy exists in the forms of radio waves, microwaves, satellite signals, human touch, thought, and much,much more. According to The Elegant Universe, “The electromagnetic force…is the force driving all of the convienences of modern life- lights, computers, TV’s, telephones- and underlies the awesome might of lightning storms and the gentle touch of a human hand.” To mathematically compare the electromagnetic force to the gravitational force, electromagnetic energy is 10^42 times stronger than gravity. According to Greene, this is “about a million billion billion billion billion times stronger!”. The human touch is governed by the flow of electrons in the nervous system, therefore it also has its own electromagnetic spectrum. Furthermore, thoughts also have their own electromagnetic field, as indicated by the observer affect and Greene’s studies. According to SuperConscious.Blogspot, “Just as your physical body is controlled by your mind, so too is the electromagnetic energy field surrounding your body directed by the power of your thoughts.” If thoughts are indeed the conductors of this electromagnetic force, which is 10^42 times stronger than gravity, then it goes on to reason that the power of thought is stronger than the power of gravity. Electromagnetic energy is the energy which binds electrons to an atom so that they do not escape.
Finally, let us combine all three laws together to validate the hypothesis. First, every single thing in the universe is comprised of energy. Second of all, every single thing has a gravitational pull. Third, energy follows thought. ince everything is Energy, and energy follows thought, and everything has a gravitational pull, that would mean that You, dear reader, just by thinking (because energy follows thought- The OBSERVER Effect), can Attract to yourself (using your gravitational pull and electromagnetic energy), Anything you want (energy). This means that negative thoughts can only bring you negative results; however, positive thoughts bring positive results. We must multiply, not add. Energy, thoughts, and the gravitational force upon these is more exponential than anything else. This is why bad days come to you in the blink of an eye, and this is why good days can come in the blink of an eye as well.
(Energy)(Thought)(Gravity)= Positive Outcome
- [(energy)(thought)(gravity)]= – Outcome
Now, let’s consider the equation at heart. Gravity brings you energy frequencies. So, gravity isn’t negative or positive. Energy also isn’t negative or positive. Energy and Gravity, both, are neutral. The One thing that brings things out of balance is Thought. Thought is rarely neutral. Someone who has neutral thinking is someone who has let go of the past and future, and only exists in the present. In other words, someone whose thought registers as only neutral is someone who has reached enlightenment. Therefore, for 99% of the world, the thought is either more positive than negative, or it is more negative than positive. The polarity of your thinking, then, will determine whether or not Energy and Gravity will work in your favor (positive), or against it (negative). And, that can only be determined by What you think about. Humanity exists beyond the sixth senses. There is a level beyond it all, there is a level where there is no mind, there is a level where there is true peace, true exhilarating peace. You musn’t search for it; however, you must exist in the now. The past and future are all illusions, and all that you have is this moment, which has been experimented by Einstein to be deemed as true. According to M-Theory, the universe exists in at least 11 dimensions (damtp), which goes on to show the list of endless possibilities we exist in. By simply observing a certain possibility in time, we gravitate toward that outcome. In RobertBryanton’s book Imagining The Tenth Dimension, Robert goes on to show that the fourth dimension is time. The fifth dimension is possibilities outcome. Basically, a pencil is in the third dimension. A pencil moving across a field from point a to point be is a progression in time having taken place in the fourth dimension. The fifth dimension, according toBryanton, consists of all the possible places the pencil could end up. For an exciting demonstration of Bryanton’s research, go to youtube.com and search up Imagining the 10thDimension.
Concisely, we gravitate toward our desires. The polarity of our thoughts and feelings send electromagnetic waves across the universe, and they literally bring to use the things we desire by laws of gravitational attraction. Every single thing in the universe is made of energy. It is the human mind that perceives a disconnection between us and the universe. The fact is, all particles are made of energy. We exist in an unending wave of energy, the greatest ocean in the cosmos. What occurs on one end of the spectrum is felt throughout the other end, just like a stone thrown into a body of water sends ripples throughout the entire surface. And once the ripples subside, the flow of energy continues on forever in complete inertia, bumping into other things which further combine with the flow of energy and stream deeper into reality. We are kings in this world which we have constructed merely by observation. If a tree falls down in the middle of a forest and no one is around to hear it, it truly does not make a sound because there is no observer, as shown by the Copenhagen experiments and tests done by David Bohm. As William Earnest Henley stated, you truly are the master of your fate, the captain of your soul. The hypothesis has not been fully proven true, though I believe it to be true. When three laws combine together, they do make a fourth law. Just like 2+2=4, 2+4 must equal six. However, I still cannot openly say the hypothesis has been proven true because many people do not bring to fruition their desires. The reason at hand is that they did not hold their intent long enough for the particles to grow from the subatomic spectrum to the macroscopic. The evidence at hand cannot be validated in the present state of humanity as there are too many doubters to the combination of the laws at hand; however, just as gravity is always working, so is this contrived law working all the time as well. This having been said, the hypothesis cannot be claimed to be absolutely true by the science community until every single person can willingly attract the very thing he or she desires; this, I find as hopeless because as it stands, there are still people in the world who believe the holocaust never happened(http://christianparty.net/holocaust.htm). If they cannot be convinced of something that has at least seven million victims who can bare witness to the alleged crimes of the NAZI’s, I do not see how the world as a whole will willingly accept how powerful its thoughts really are. As is the case with the scientific method, an experiment must be replicable by absolutely anyone absolutely one hundred percent of the time in order for something to be passed on as a law. Thus, though technically the hypothesis still needs further proof, I believe it to be fully true because I abide by the research of David Bohm, Brian Greene, John Dalton, Ernest Rutherford, Stephen Hawkings, Sir Isaac Newton, Robert Bryanton, Niels Bohr, and Albert Einstein.

Poverty begins as a state of mind, and it expands into full blown consciousness.
Consciousness becomes awareness.
Awareness becomes expectation.
Expectation becomes reality.
We were born with the power to rule the universe.
But we were conditioned into mediocrity.
We fought for liberty in our yesteryears, we fought for independence, we fought for our rights to be an end unto ourselves. We came from everywhere.
In the depth of our history, we were looked down upon for so long.
With nowhere to turn to, art was our only escape.
In a world ruled by Czars, Caesars, Emperors, and Kings, we were peasants who had no voice.
Art was our outlet of expression.
We were the da Vincis, the Michaelangelos, the Sun Tzus, the Machiavellis, the thinkers, the dreamers.
Ours is a story of violence and horror.
The pages of our history are filled with acts of civil disobedience, because we had to show the world that we mattered- that the leaders weren’t the only ones who had a voice.
They made laws to shut us up.
They wanted to compress the heart, to kill creativity, to enslave the mind.
And for a time, we listened.
We began to believe that were are as they said we were.
And we began to act as the slaves they wanted us to be.
Perhaps we weren’t slaves by title, but we were slaves by expression.
We might have stayed that way forever, but then there were those who stepped out.
They were the dissenters.
Like the ones who left Plato’s cave, these men and women declared that no external entity would ever beat their beating hearts ever again.
The early dissenters took a risk that we cannot fathom today.
To challenge the status quo in times when the status quo would kill anyone who deviated from the norm is something we cannot understand today.
If… the machine of government… is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. – Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobediance, 1849
But. . .we did it.
We fought hard, and we made it clear that the soul was to be enslaved no more.
That. . .the heart and all its contents were meant to fill the world and not stay inside of us.
We lost much support from the world when we chose to dissent.
So, we went wherever we were accepted.
And then, we met her.
We met the New Colossus.
Beneath her feet, we read the following words:
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
The tired, the poor, the suppressed scattered all over the world to find places of meaning.
Those days are long gone.
But the memories still remain.
The Starving Artist served its purpose in our yesteryears and days gone by; however she scarred our psyche, and as a result, we still have not let go of the images of our crusade.
May the following words lead you out of your darkness and show you what the world has become.
The crusade is over, and the image of the starving artist should have died along with it.
But, now, in the freest of times, the starving artist still exists.
She exists because we allow her to exist within our minds.
Poverty begins as a state of mind, and it expands into full blown consciousness.
Consciousness becomes awareness.
Awareness becomes expectation.
Expectation becomes reality.
We were born with the power to rule the universe.
But we were conditioned into mediocrity.
Now. . .open your eyes.
Come and see the world as I see it.
The Age of Reason
Cast your doubts and fears aside, because all your anguish exists in the mind.
We have the power to create the life of our dreams, but the dreams must first exist within our minds.
Never before in history have we had the power we have now.
All of these platforms are free, and they have changed the way humanity interacts with itself.
Fill these platforms with your art.
Even if you put it up for free, you will certainly attract visitors if your heart is in the right place.
And when you are true to yourself, your heart is always in the right place.
Visitors attract advertisers.
Advertisers bring money.
The Starving Artist is an effigy of our yesteryears, and she no longer serves us.
We must cast it a pariah, we must exile it from our minds in order to hold of ourselves a bolder image.
The image of the the Thriving Artist.
Cast your fears aside, open your eyes, and embrace the new world.
This is the dawn of a new age.
This is the dawn of a new day where the Thinker is hailed.
There has been no time in history where the human mind has been as revered as well as it is today.
There has been no time in history where those who used their minds in order to inspire, lead, and spread innovation were paid as much as the minds of today can be paid.
Open your eyes and jump into the bliss.
The only remnants of the Starving Artist that should remain within us are the memories of a symbol that never gave up in the face of danger.
Today, all danger is gone, so what are you waiting for?
A world without the Mind is a world ruled by savages.
When I was younger, my Sunday school teachers used to tell me not to think. They would tell me that thought is the byproduct of Satanic impulses. That those who think are lead astray.
But, I completely disagree.
More crime has been committed in the name of stupidity and thoughtlessness than by anyone who has pursued the path of reason.
Embrace your heart, your vision, your dreams, and go create your art.
Then sell it.
You have all the riches in the world to garner.
And when you face opposition, welcome it. Opposition will always exist. It strengthens us.
Let’s embrace the new image of ourselves, because the crusade for expression is over.
But we must still fight to let the world know the inner workings of our souls.
And let us profit along the way, because choosing to be poor has no beauty left within itself.
There is absolutely nothing romantic about it.
Nothing can be made of poverty, so I ask that you aim higher and dream a little richer.
I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do we need?- Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead
And if you were born into poverty, the free tools of the social networks I prescribed should surely bring you out of your predicament.
The crusade for expression is over, because we have the freedom to express ourselves now in more ways than we ever could in all of human history.
We are Gods, and there is a new crusade today.
The crusade for wealth.
So cast out the image of the starving artist, and embrace the image of one that thrives.
Think. Dream. Inspire.
