Kanye has achieved more in singular months than most entertainers will in a lifetime. Pure obsession creativity and a take-no-shit attitude is what got him mega-millions and more grammys than entire record label rosters.
It all seems out of reach to an average no-name rapper peddling mixtapes.
America will be great again when it adapts MAGA Mindset
Madman Mike Cernovich has done it again, he had the balls to release this book before the election: a book that tells you how Trump won the election. MAGA Mindset is a blockbuster summary and insight of the insane 2016 American Election year detailing everything from media hoaxes to the Roosh V saga. The book is only 100 pages long and will take you about 2 hours to read. That being said the book doesn’t waste a single word so strap in for the ride!
The Greatness of the MAGA Mindset
MAGA Mindset is social commentary chronicling real events and then somehow relatings the mindset used by President-Elect Trump to thump his way to victory.
From SJW’s to the Roosh saga and the Nationalism v. Globalism dynamic, MAGA Mindset scope is tremedous and noteworthy. No one else to date has been able to distill world events, political philosophy, and mindset into such a small package…but Mike Cernovich doesn’t stop there!
The Flawless Victory of Mindset
Mindset in its simplest terms is a set of assumptions we have about the world and ourselves and so the big question in MAGA Mindset is “If we are going to be defined, why not just define ourselves in the biggest way possible?” to paraphrase.
The Donald always thinks big, this guy thought he’d be president easily 25 years ago. By thinking big you define your reality because reality is only a collection of your thoughts and assumptions about your enviroment and so it goes: change your mindset, change your life.
Mike talks about his other book Gorilla Mindset and in that book he talks about imaging the your Perfect Day and using that to create your vision and manifest your destiny with your thoughts. It may sound farfetched but it all becomes very real once you apply it.
Here are some other bullet points I got from the book
Don’t chase success, chase momentum
Use failure as a stepping stone
Pursue your passion daily
Tailor Affirmations to your vision
Be Pushy when you provide value
MAGA Mindset is an awesome book whether you are into the political stuff or not and its an excellent way of applying mindset to the real world and really taking your destiny into your own hands.
You need MAGA Mindset because unlike other political books MAGA is based on the real world and real world people. MAGA Mindset will actually add value to your life by giving you the same tools Cernovich used to build a media empire!
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.
If nothing else you need clean water, why? because you are 70% water and this is the stuff they put in your municipal water supply…
I have a water distiller and that is the result of about 9 or 10 distillations: deadly chemical waste. What see is some minerals and a ton of chemicals like chlorine…you know that stuff they put in swimming pools? Yeah its in my water here in Waukegan. I felt sick to my stomach for a while until I started to drink good water via gravity fed filters or just distilling it outright.
You are crazy if you drink water from tap, your fridge filter isn’t good enough. There are only a few ways to really get good water.
1. You could go buy bottled water
prohibitively expensive for most people but an option when no other means are available. Most bottled water is just tap water in disguise
2. Gravity Fed Filters
Gravity fed means the tap water is put into the top chamber and the water is slowly filtered out to the bottom. The only filter that I know of thats completely effective is Big Burkey Filters, Gravity fed is expensive and takes longer than simply distilling it.
3. Reverse Osmosis Machine
This is the holy grail of clean water but these machines cost around $2000, closest thing to pure water other than distillation
This is the best and most cost effective way to get clean water, distilled water is as clean as you can get and the machines only cost $200 dollars and need minimum maintenance. The only drawback is that you will need to get something to “alkalize” the water so that its easy for your body to absorb, I use Alkazone and you can get it from Amazon. It adds the trace minerals you need and leaves out toxic stuff like flouride.
Do not underestimate the importance of clean water. There are all kinds of birth control medication and other stuff that your local city or town municipal plant cannot filter out. The only thing they can do is keep the water from killing you outright by killing dangerous bacteria but the chemicals are just as dangerous. You need only look at Flint, Michigan to understand my point.
Tap water lowers testosterone, and the medication in the water could have any number of side effects. This is the single best thing you can do for your help besides just drinking more water.
Not drinking tap water is the best thing I’ve ever done for my health, because the water was disrupting the flora in my gut and making me feel like a zombie. If this sounds like you, I’m not saying this is a cure all and you might have detox reactions to drinking clean water. I will say however that anyone and everyone can benefit from drinking cleaner water and paying attention to where there water is coming from.
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.
Everything you see is a mix of reality and false reality.
Perception is reality and the most powerful people on this planet can bend it to their will.
They love to trick you, lie to you and deceive you, making you think that “Your vote matters”.
You have been conditioned to live in your own bubble, oblivious to the world around you and the great deceivers that play you like a fiddle. From a very young age you have been conditioned and drugged with carefully selected imagery from cartoons, sugary cereals, poisoned medications, baby formula and tap water. In a systematic effort to control and subvert your natural instincts. To make you more docile for the wolves to eat rather than becoming a wolf yourself. You were meant to be free, to be healthy, to be happy, and to be fulfilled but you can’t hope to have any of these things in any measure so long as you confine yourself to the matrix.
It doesn’t have to be this way
Deep down you want something more out of life, you want to be free without the shackles weighing you down. Truthfully, you have Stockholm Syndrome, you love your box and the captors that have trapped you in it. Only until you meet the Event Horizon will momentum begin to shift.
THE EVENT HORIZON
A point of no return
You’re mind is the single most powerful agent of change in existence, in it is the mythical power of creation and causality. In order to better control you the overlords want to ensure that you do not harness the full power of your mind by drowning out the mind with worthless information and powerful mind-control using the media as a vehicle.
All of it is meant to numb your senses.
Intense violence on TV and games are used to desensitize you so that when actual violence happens, instead of acting, you will pull out your cell phone and record with glee.
Gratuitous sexual innuendo and massive amounts of porn to stimulate you in unhealthy ways, prevent reproduction, and turn you into a wanking zombie.
All of this is my opinion of course, TV might have some benefits but I choose to forego it and I don’t miss it.
Your mind unfettered by the all the shackles and distractions is endlessly powerful.
Cut down on social media.
Eat decent food and supplements.
Live the way you want to live and be happy.
Cut out the toxic people that don’t make you happy.
Its so easy, you are capable of so much and yet you are wasting away in the TV land wondering when the next episode of the Walking Dead is while you consume shit-loads of pizza because papa johns has “better ingredients”.
The Matrix is nullified when you understand the full nature of its existence and actively counteract it.
Do research, and find TRUTH. A certain book says “The truth will set you free”…
Boy, does it ever.
Then and only then will you meet your Event Horizon; the point of absolutely no return. There is absolutely no putting things back in Pandora’s box once it’s opened.
There’s some quote that says a mind once stretched never returns to its original dimensions and its true. I once saw things as a religious zealot and now I’m somewhere between Gnostic and Deist. The world for me changed and shifted once I was forced to look at a different perspective.
Once you see the world for what it is and not what you want it to be, your entire life and approach to life changes absolutely. You can’t go back and wouldn’t want to.
Why would you?
You were once in the dark and now in the light. This is the Event Horizon and your final escape from the Matrix. Congratulations, very very few people ever escape the Matrix.
Your escape will have a direct effect on causality and your destiny. Every intentional action has an effect on your outcome and everything matters when YOU are in control of your life.
Most people do not want the burden of responsibility because they want someone to blame when things go wrong; a man divorced from the matrix does not have this option.
You Cannot Save Anyone
Destiny is a combination of Fate and the Will of the Man in question. If a person is willing to allow someone else to decide things for him then he has given in to the will of another, accepted his fate and his destiny is set in stone.
You cannot have a desired destiny without exerting your will!
IT WILL NOT HAPPEN. You need to exert the will to decide your own fate and change your destiny to what you want!
The same goes for anyone you encounter. You can’t save anyone from the Matrix, that’s an act of will that cannot be delegated. You can only give them information and tools to decide their own fate and plus some people actually love being sheep herded by their handlers.
Freedom from the matrix will make you realize one thing:
You are limitless.
With this realization you will ascertain that you have the will to change your fate and shape your own destiny…
I’ve had this book for two years and never read it.
Today I decided to read a book and do a review on it and I can honestly say that it was the most impactful 42 pages I’ve ever read.
Spiritual Centers in Man is meant to inform those who wish to pursue Occult studies; high levels of Yoga, Brahmanism, Pythagorean Mysteries, Hermeticism, and along those lines.
In other words, those who wish to attain the highest spiritual enlightenment.
I’m incredibly grateful that I took the time to read this book and I’ll tell you why: Occult study is perilous and difficult in many ways.
Manly opens by saying that growth isn’t just a natural process but also the unfoldment of the spiritual potential that all living things possess. Most will never fully realize this potential or even realize its existence.
“What must I do to unfold the divine powers latent in myself?”
Opening with this simple question Manly proceeds to give us 7 requirements occult students must meet, 7 considerations for occult study, the 7 chakras, and the 8 steps of Yogi school.
Seven Requirements for Occult Students
Must Realize Value of Education
Understands importance of continuity
Recognizes debt to society
Realizes importance of motive
Shun psychism and phenomenalism
Realize that with great knowledge comes great responsibility
Maintains a constructive mental attitude
Some of these may seem banal but Mr. Hall’s explanation of each of these in concise detail is amazing. Pythagoras refused to allow anyone in his school unless they were well versed in Music, Mathematics, and Astonomy; so it would make sense why we need proper education before pursuing deep studies.
What really caught my eye was his explanation of why you shouldn’t skip steps and open your third eye early and wander about the astral plane. It hinders your spiritual development and you risk permanent damage to your mind if you haven’t reached a certain stage of purity.
Its mentioned that students of Mystery Schools often are put in a probationary period for five years in order to stamp out all character flaws and negativity. This explains alot about why so many “Spiritual” people are off their rocker, going to far into the occult without self-mastery is an invitation to destruction. You cannot harbor hate for anyone, embrace any of the Seven Deadly Sins and expect enlightenment, even after a lifetime of study.
I’m still processing a lot of the book but I will leave you with this quote:
That is no exaggeration, author, Mike Cernovich, Esq. cuts right to the chase:
You need a strong mindset to live a life of purpose and meaning.
Gorilla Mindset opens with a few of Mike’s personal experiences from his childhood:
One day a bully beat me up badly. It was humiliating…I went to the garage, laid down, and cried myself to sleep. When my dad came home from work, he opened the garage door, looked down at me with part pity and part contempt, and asked me one question that changed my life.
“When are you going to get serious?”
This sets the tone for everything that is to follow. Mike shows us how to get serious, one Mindset Shift at a time.
A key theme is developing the “Abundance Mindset”. In order for opportunity to present itself you must believe there is opportunity everywhere and that the world is a land of plenty. Otherwise the “Scarcity Mindset” will seal off your opportunities in life.
Make no mistake: this isn’t an academic book; nor a feel-good self improvement circle-jerk. This is an ACTION BOOK. You know those coloring books you had as a kid?
Gorilla Mindset at work!
That’s the way you need to approach this book. Through out Gorilla Mindset you are given “Mindset Shifts” actionable items that you can practice here and now to “color-in” your mindset. Some of them are as simple as observing the way you walk to something as tough as changing your emotions or blocking out negativity.
Mike does a great job backing up what he says with a mix of science, personal experience, quotes, and literature. Even then, you will find that if you follow the book and do the Mindset Shifts, your results will speak volumes of how effective the Shifts are.
My favorite is using “State Control” to reign in emotions and replace them with new ones. You can DECIDE how you feel and that Mindset Shift was revolutionary for me! I used to let people “ruin” my day not realizing that it was just them bringing me down to their level. I’ve been able to control my anger and negativity much better and this has made me a happier guy. As a bonus its a lot easier to deal with conflict and difficult people at work.
After a few days of leave.
I have Gorilla Mindset in kindle and audible and I’m hoping Mike will consider a hardcover.
I love anime, I’ve watched anime since 1998 and when I’m not obsessing about business, books, powerlifting or guitar, I’m watching anime. I’ve seen around 100 different series.
I love anime because its the most immersive art form I’ve encountered. Its like you step into a different world and see things from a different perspective. I’m, by any measure, an anime fanatic,
6 Reasons you should be watching anime!
1. There are many many many kinds of anime
The sheer variety is the main draw of anime, there are too many to categorize. Like comedy? Watch Azumanga Daioh or Inferno Cop. Like romance? Watch White Album. Like epic story telling? Watch Code Geass or Zankyou No Terror.
The only limit is your own preconceptions. There are many anime (like Azumanga Daioh) that I didn’t watch for a long time because it looked too girly or too silly and really really surprised me! Many I hadn’t heard of until I perused Myanimelist.net for something to watch
2. You love a great story
This is my number one reason for watching anime but everyone seems to love a good story.
The truth is I often read the description of the anime’s plot before I jump in to see if its worthwhile. Obviously, plot isn’t the focus of many anime but if plot is what you want there is no shortage of fascinating works to choose from. Mr. Miyazaki’s works (Spirited Away, Nausicaa: Valley of the Wind) are prime examples.
3. Deep religious, philosophical, and psychological themes
Early paintings from the likes of Da Vinci and Picasso would invoke strong emotions and powerful themes about human life and existence. Animation allows artists to create paintings that move.
Serial Experiments Lain is one such anime. It was Inception 10+ years before that movie came out. There’s no way to describe it without spoilers but it goes deep into raw human psyche and emotions. Not the kind of stuff you expect from a cartoon right?
Neon Genesis Evangelion has similar mental health themes, topped off with something odd: the hero does not want to be a hero, the hero is actually human and a cowardly one at that.
There are deep ethical and religious themes in series like Mushishi and Monster that will provoke thought about who we are and why we are here, existing on this Earth.
kickin it old school
4. Good anime beats most mainstream hollywood movies
Purely my opinion of course; anime is head and shoulders above much of the garbage you see in hollywood today. Think about it, there is a virtually endless assortment of anime movies and series that you can watch for free or pay for DVD’s and / or crunchyroll.
Good Miyazaki flicks could save you from taking your kids to go see some shitty “Frozen” movie filled with social propaganda. Ever waste time and money to go see some rehashed B flick? For the most part, as long as you read reviews and the synopsis of an anime, you can almost avoid this entirely and save precious minutes and dollars.
fear the nose hairs
5. Feed guilty pleasures
Do you like well drawn boobs? Nose hairs? Poorly animated shows that make no sense?
Well, I got news for you: you will have ALL of this and more when you go deep enough into the japanese rabbit hole! There is no shortage of the most bizarre fucking shows you’ve ever seen in your life.
Bobobobo in the picture is a japanese dude with a blond afro that beats the baddies with, i shit you not, his bodacious nose hairs. If that isn’t enough, really bad anime, like infernocop, are there to serve as endless punchlines because the jokes are so corny and the animation so awful and ridiculous you will laugh your ass off.
6. Creativity and Inspiration
The best musicians, artists and animators in the east often contribute to anime, many songs that have touched my soul were theme songs in anime:
You get to watch the characters grow as they overcome adversity or die in vain. Many of the characters, unwittingly, follow the hero’s journey that Joseph Campbell speaks of in his books. There is no shortage of inspiration in these fictional character’s stories to use in your own real-life story.
Anime stimulates your creativity, and activates that kiddy imagination that’s dormant in you.
Berserk in a good way
If you love art, music and beautiful things, give anime a shot.
