The best tales are the ones that touch us, the ones that come straight from the heart and soul of the author. The author bleeds for months, weeks, and even years to get the simplest of truths across to convey that sense of beauty to the reader. The Artist Formerly Known As Victor Pride, Nick Kelly has done just that. Everything about New World Ronin is the height of Bold And Determined perfection.
New World Ronin is the greatest self-improvement book ever written, pure genius on a level not seen in ages and will change your life instantly if you take the time to absorb the book. You will feel a fire inside after you finish the book.
The truth I’ve been on a long and emotional self-improvement journey and have read and applied many books to better my life when it came time to let go of old patterns of thinking and I ran across B&D once in 2014 and again in 2015 and it was pure Destiny.
Destiny has a way of giving subtle hints but she isn’t easy by any means. My hint was finding Bold And Determined a year and a half ago which led to my decision to leave my soul sucking job in the Navy once my contract expires in Fall 2017. I always knew there was more to life but I could never quite articulate it because I joined the military when I was 18. I found B&D when I was at the lowest point in my life February 2015. Physically disqualified from Navy Special Warfare and doomed to continue a fucked existence in an office job waiting to die.
I knew I had to be an entrepreneur, there is no other choice and of course people think I am completely insane to leave a promising career in the military and “security” for the unstable life of a business owner.
Safety nets are just that, nets to keep you safe but wait….if there’s no risk…
YOU WILL NEVER EVER TRULY LIVE!
This is one of the underlying themes that stuck with me and something I’ve been thinking myself for a while and the reason I’m leaving my career. I want to truly live and be alive and as a New World Ronin you do this by ALWAYS MOVING FORWARD!
The Devil is Always in the details
Literally, the New World Ronin’s catharsis is not Analysis Paralysis but momentum from movement and there is no movement from sitting and thinking. My IQ exceeds 120, people often tell me I’m smartest guy they know.
BUT, I have a deadly tendency to over analyze ever detail and years in the military has only made it worst. Meanwhile, while I bathe in my thoughts I’m going from A to A in a mother-fucking circle people pass me up in business as as I mentally masturbate with non-existent ideas.
In NWR you will learn that the only way you can move forward in life is to MOVE and all through-out the 100 or so pages you learn how to do just that.
I get no money from promoting this book, Nick Kelly didn’t tell me to write about this book. There are no affiliate links here. I only want to get the word out so that you can SEE the world in Full-Color.
If you want to live life on your own terms as a New World Ronin, then buy this fucking book.
Binaural Beats are one of the most effective ways to relax I have found.
Years ago I used to struggle with depression and anxiety stemming from abuse I experienced as a child. A counselor offered that I see psychiatrist but I wasn’t having it, I didn’t want to end up pouring my heart out to some person who would’ve just prescribed me some medication.
So what did I do?
I decided to treat myself and thats right around when I discovered binaural beats.
I discovered binaural beats from Elliot Hulse’s Four Pillars of Strength (i think thats the name). He recommended Holosync and I tried it out. My reaction was..
A feeling of complete and indescribable relaxation came over me and I felt my anxiety wash away. I was sold on brain entrainment from that point on. These days I don’t use holosync and mostly use Youtube videos, which are almost as good as the paid programs anyway, or close enough. I’ve been sold on the beats ever since. Heres the science behind them:
A binaural beat is an auditory illusionperceived when two different pure-tone sine waves, both with frequencies lower than 1500 Hz, with less than a 40 Hz difference between them, are presented to a listener dichotically (one through each ear). For example, if a 530 Hz pure tone is presented to a subject’s right ear, while a 520 Hz pure tone is presented to the subject’s left ear, the listener will perceive the auditory illusion of a third tone, in addition to the two pure-tones presented to each ear. The third sound is called a binaural beat, and in this example would have a perceivedpitch correlating to a frequency of 10 Hz, that being the difference between the 530 Hz and 520 Hz pure tones presented to each ear.
The result of listening to the beats result in whats called “entrainment” where your brainwave are affected by the soundwaves. There is some controversy concerning the exact science of entrainment and whether or not it actually works but in my opinion:
The science is meaningless
If you get any subjective benefit from entrainment then the means become the ends. If you THINK its helping you, it will help you and it helps that the beats are so relaxing to listen to.
Binaural beats have been anecdotally linked to helping treat a myriad of mental conditions including PTSD. Not saying its a cure all but that it COULD help.
I know it after I use the beats I’m relaxed, at-peace, and have a general feeling of well being thats hard to describe.
Now you’re eager to see what all the hoopla is about but your wondering how much this stuff costs. Well, you don’t have to pay for a fancy program like Holosync, everything is free on Youtube. Here are some of the videos I use:
The best track for sleep I’ve found, keep at a low volume, wear some earbuds and melt away.
One of the best meditation aids on the internet, great for people who aren’t knew to meditation and/or have experience with martial arts. Makes it much easier to reach Theta and Delta brainwave states.
