Time-Cheating, Life University Strategies

True_Wealth_1024

For those fellas who still hold the intention of going back to school but complain of lack of time and money, here are some time-cheating, “life university” strategies.

  1. Driving University: Listen to audio books or financial news radio while stuck in traffic. Traffic nuisances transformed to education.
  2. Exercise University: Absorb books, podcasts, and magazines while exercising at the gym. In between sets, on the treadmill, or on the stationary bike, exercise is transformed to education.
  3. Waiting University: Bring something to read with you when you anticipate a painful wait: Airports, doctor’s offices, and your state’s brutal motor vehicle department. Don’t sit there and twiddle your thumbs— learn!
  4. Toilet University: Never throne without reading something of educational value. Extend your “sit time” (even after you finish) with the intent of learning something new, every single day. Toilet University is the best place to change learn, since it occurs daily and the time expenditure cannot be avoided. This means the return on your time investment is infinite! Toilet time transformed to education. 
  5. Jobbing University: If you can, read during work downtimes. Dead-end jobs transformed to education.
  6. TV-Time University: Can’t wean yourself off the TV? No problem; put a television near your workspace and simultaneously work your plan while the TV does its thing. Watching transformed to work and education.

Think about the time you already use. How many hours do you waste in the trivialities of life? This time doesn’t need to be lost, or wasted.

To start, choose a topic that interests you or an area in your life that needs improvement. Not good at sales or writing? Get to the library and start reading. I can’t stress enough that the more knowledge you consume, the more torque you create.

Casual

You go in life casually, you might end up a casualty. Comfort is a beginning of losing stability. Life is too short to live miserable, either way, you can’t get out of life alive, so you had better spent your time in the field fighting for what you believe. The healthiest eyes shed tears.

These Three I Will Hate

These three I will hate…

And one is /age/

With age come weakness,

A weakness of the mind,

So I will meditate.


The other is /sickness/

With sickness comes pain,

A reminder in our fragile mortality,

So I will live lovingly.


The last is /poverty/

With poverty comes resentment,

A bitter indignation at having been treated unfairly,

So I will work hard and be contented

If You Want To

You can smile if you want to, just accept to appreciate others;

You can laugh if you want to, just listen /at/ the children play;

You can feel loved if you want to, just be kind with /the/ words;

You can be inspired if you want to, just give in to pull of art;

The Ladder

It grows up, and goes up;

Each climb I take, up it goes;

When I rest, up it grows;

Up I haste, it grows up;

I aim higher, up it still goes;

You Must Break It With Your Head Before You Can Make It With Hands;

If you can imagine it, then you can be it;

If you can dream it, then you can touch it;

If you can feel it, then you can believe it;

If you can see it, then you can live it;

If you can strive, then you can survive it;

If you can sound, then you can sing;


What you can’t break down, you can’t make up;

What your head can’t, your hands can not;

What you feed your mind, shapes your perspective;

What you give ~ you get, what you give ~ you are;

What goes up, must come down;

What goes around, comes back around;


It’s the will, not the skill;

It’s the walk, not the talk;

It’s getting more done, not doing more;

It’s how you respond, not react;

Its growing thru’, not going thru’;

The Purpose – Passion, Service, Happiness and Wealth

Important_Work_1024

When you realize your purpose, the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it (~ Paulo Coelho ). Your passion if often linked to your purpose (~ John c. Maxwell). A fulfilling purpose must mean to selflessly serve others (~Robin Sharma). You can do important work if you do not become self-important; you can do several things as easily as one if you leave yourself out (~  Urantia book).  The fruits of living your purpose shall be Happiness and wealth. True happiness is rooted inside as a great contentment with life and an appreciative perspective toward the diversity of life (~McKabue). Complete wealth entails family, fitness and freedom (~MJ DeMarco)

The Pleasure-Pain

The_Citadel_1024

But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?


You cannot separate the sugar rush from the sugar crash…


But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.

No Accident

Spark_of_Infinity_1024

there is, actually there is;

a short cut to happiness;

its success, and conquering own limits;

it’s a fixation onto a dear goal


its possible, its really is;

to live an extraordinary life;

its living every moment, once;

its working on oneself, repeatedly;


its now, it’s right now;

a time to choose your fate;

it starts with creating a personal philosophy;

it starts with changing one’s perception;
