Hi there , #KetoRecruit !

If you’re reading this, you’re ready or interested in getting on a Ketogenic Diet.

I’m on ‘the Keto diet right now, and since I’ve gotten many questions on how to get started, I’ve decided to lay out a practical guide.
The only thing you have to do is follow along and if needed, drop me a question below.

Before even getting started, I’ll ask you this: “Are you ready to make a big switch in your diet and lifestyle for at least 4-6 weeks?”

The reason I’m asking is, if you’re not, there is no point in going further. The Ketogenic diet offers lots of interesting effects and it’s simple, but it’s not necessarily easy. 

80% of what we do during the day and the decisions we make are from habit.  Taking on a lifestyle change like this will force you out of “autopilot”, or make you realize that these habit based decisions are a lot stronger than you thought.

In this way, the Ketogenic diet is very clear:

You are either strict or can forget about it.

If you are ready, show me your dedication by dropping “I’m ready to commit” in the comment section below.

See you on the other side!

What does it mean to be a King?

In my mind, it means that you’re just a cut above other guys.
And I’ll say the same thing applies to your girlfriend if she’s going to be a Queen
I was watching a video about Beyonce Knowles the other day and she’s
talking a lot about her inner beliefs.
She said things like
I value my body, I’m careful who I share it with
I value my man, sharing a life with somebody
She talks about how she feels, how she carries herself, her life philosophy
It’s not a very ra-ra thing to say,
But would you agree that she’s a Queen?
A cut above most other women you’ll meet?
What is a King?
A King is a man who just outclasses other guys
A King is a guy who is on his purpose
He knows what he wants out of life
He has strong boundaries
He knows what vibe he wants around him
He knows what he’s doing here
He’s a CUT ABOVE
You’ve developed an ecosystem around you with friends that you like
girls who you’re dating who you like
OR an amazing girlfriend
Maybe you’re taking time away from women but you’re doing it BY CHOICE
You’re somebody that like’s what he does for a living
OR you’re taking steps in getting there
You’re fun
You’re happy
You smile
You enjoy the little things
You can stop and smell the F*cking roses
As a King you can lay back and enjoy what you’ve built

A lot of people simply do not have standards
Don’t let yourself off the hook
Say I’m going to examine myself
And have standards and say
“I’m F*cking pathetic for what I’m doing right now”
NOT having your health handled
NOT having the type of dating life you want
NOT having the type of sex life you want
NOT living in a situation you’re comfortable in
Use the negative emotions from saying “that’s pathetic” to focus your mind
If you’re a person who has his shit together you’re a role model to others
you’re able to bring value, a calming energy, people will actually listen to you
Make yourself strong first.
When you’re taking action,
That’s your criteria for success

 

The Marines have a saying:

“Everybody wants to go to heaven
But nobody wants to die
And that’s just real
At the center of bringing any dream to fruition
Is self-discipline
Something as simple as food and eating

is not about your body as much as it is about your mind
It’s getting command of your mind to be able to choose actions
That are in your own best interest”

 

Are you doing the right things?

What are the big ones

The ones you’re ready to go all out in

And instead of having this scattered focus

Have a deep, clear focus and actually get ahead

Success comes when you do a few things well

instead of dabbling around getting lost trying to do too much

Extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you make your focus

 

There’s always one thing that’s the most important

The difference between being successful and unsuccessful is having

the self discipline necessary the resist the lure of the excuses

You do it anyway

You put in the work

You grind through

You just DO THE WORK

 

 

I want this

 

I’ve been on and off Modafinil for about 3 weeks now and have been asked to write a report on my findings. So here we go:
Modafinil (Wikipedia):

Modafinil, sold under the brand name Provigil among others, is a wakefulness-promoting drug used for treatment of disorders such as narcolepsyshift work sleep disorderidiopathic hypersomnia, and excessive daytime sleepiness associated with obstructive sleep apnea.[6] It has also seen widespread off-label use as a purported cognitive enhancer.[7] In the United States modafinil is classified as a schedule IV controlled substance and restricted in availability and usage, due to concerns about possible addiction potential. In most other countries it is a prescription drug but not otherwise legally restricted.

Modafinil acts as an atypical, selective, and weak dopamine reuptake inhibitor which indirectly activates the release of orexinneuropeptides and histamine from the lateral hypothalamus and tuberomammillary nucleus, respectively, by unknown mechanisms, all of which contribute to heightened arousal.

Productivity:

My first noticeable effect was on day 1 of taking Modafinil (200gram). I decided to look at a technical problem I was facing with my laptop. A silly issue causing me not to be able to access my website. I found a step-by-step solution before but I immediately felt lost and decided to postpone it. Which would be my regular approach to things.

Now, after seeing the steps, I opened up 6 empty pages almost as a reflex and systematically went through the steps. After about 4 minutes, the issue was resolved.

But I was just getting into things, and I actually felt a little bit sad the task was already over.

I remembered that there’s a project I’ve been postponing for about a year. An e-book that needed to be revised and translated. Just thinking about the work involved would normally cause me to do something else, but I decided to open up the file and start working on it.

After about 2.5 hours I was 75% done. I found somebody to do a cover design, ordered it and translated a big chunk of the book. During this time I didn’t check my phone or my Facebook once.

” Okay, I thought. This could still be placebo but either way I got some shit done” .

Sports:

Most sport I engage in are solo sports (lifting weights, calisthenics, Yoga) so there’s not much to figure out. But I was on Modafinil when I decided to do a kickboxing session where the coach would hold pads and I’d hit them.

The better you do, the more difficult the combinations become.

My mind seemed to be significantly more efficient in recognizing patterns and communicating them to my body. It was like combinations immediately clicked without me having to think them over. I also felt like my endurance was better. This can be explained by the decreased used of processing energy by the brain , or, could just be non-related of course.

Work:

During my work at the clinic I had my first noticeable downside to being “on” . I’m talkative and like to share information, but normally I’m also very aware of the differences in knowledge between me as a therapist and the client. I use analogy and step by step explanation to try to get what’s in my brain, in the client’s. This day was different.

My brain was making connections and associations that were more complex and far-fetched that usual and even though they made a lot of sense for me, during explanation I could tell that clients couldn’t keep up with what I was trying to bring forward.

My normal response would be taking a step back and explaining in a different, more detailed way.

This time though, my underlying response was irritation. “Why can’t he/she keep up?” was clearly coming from the back of my mind.

Noting this gave me the opportunity to change my behavior and even though I don’t think my shift in thinking and speaking was noticeable for any of the clients, it was uncomfortable for me.

Overall:

-Very noticeable effect on “processing power” of the brain without feeling stimulated. Easy to get fully absorbed into a chosen task and strong need to finish projects.

-Talkative, better use of vocabulary and sometimes words will come up that I normally never use.

-Better memory, I recall names, situations much better. I also suddenly remembered a password I’d lost a long time ago.

-No coming down, no desire to take it on days when I decide not to take any.

-Slightly easier to get annoyed with people / processes that take longer than they should from my perspective.

Conclusion:

So far Modafinil has been an absolute addition in my pursuit of getting shit done. My productivity , ability to process data and my planning has been at a level I didn’t think was possible for me. All of this has been on a dosage half of the recommended dose as well.
It’s a good thing that I don’t seem to miss it when I’m not on it. Actually, I’ve noticed that when working with clients, it’s actually better to not be on.
But on days where I need to focus on projects such as writing articles, doing research, shooting videos and creating marketing content, this is a keeper.

 

Hook a Brother up

 

Nobody exists on purpose
Nobody belongs anywhere
And you are going to die

And you may think “Yeah, but people are going to remember me!”
Guess what. When they die, nobody will remember you
You’re GONE
You never existed

A thousands years from now, You’re gone.
What’s the point then?

LIVE.

You want to be free
You want to be out of your head, not in your head.
You want to thrive, not cope
Stop jerking off to you’re own notion and your own arrogance
That you f*cking matter.

So why do all this
What’s the point of making money
Buying nice stuff
Going to the gym?

IT’S FUN.

 

 

 

You should feel that little feeling in your chest
When you’re breaking out of your comfort zone
Or dealing with success barriers
You should be seeking out those moments
And that’s what causes progress

If I don’t feel that, I feel dead inside
Because guess what, that’s what changes you
The stuff that emotionally traumatizes you
That’s what changes you internally

You can either view it in a negative , traumatic way
And you can experience it in a positive, euphoric way
That’s also when you feel the most alive
The choice is there.

When you’re going through something bad,

how do you know it’s bad for you?
That question is huge.
And then reflect on how little you know
Because, what is a life crisis?
It’s when things don’t go according to your plan.
stop judging it, because what do you know?
And then reflect on all the things you thought were wrong and how,
maybe in the long run they weren’t 
You don’t know what’s good for you and not
Stop judging.
You can either keep going against it or just go with the flow.
