The #1 Hack to Change Your Life – Nugs of Wisdom
The only way we can untangle our lives from being influenced solely by random encounters and information is to cut the Cable TV and switch to internet TV.
That is literally reaching your brain out into the universe of all human stored knowledge, and saying, ‘bring me what I am envisioning in my brain. ‘
And the universe gives it to you.
This is literally guiding your own path. Since you are what you see and hear, what you should see and hear most is what you are the most turned on by, not by what randomly comes accross your path.
So, here it is- the secret to consuming more information related to your own intuitions and less from random noise, thus re-directing your life: <u>unsubscribe from TV.</u> I became a youtube watcher, NOT a cable watcher. That’s it. That little decision to not sign up for TV when I moved in to my new apartment last year has inadvertently fast forwarded and auto-corrected my path in life towards the good and more meaningful stuff, and skipped me past a lot of bullshit that I would’ve had to sift through before I would’ve found such specified and useful information otherwise.
Buy an Apple TV hookup or something similar so you can spend your ‘TV watching hours’ exploring content more tailored to your personal interests (you can still stream your shows, don’t worry).
This has helped me because, what I’m doing now for business and living (lifestyle) is still because of random events that happened to other people that happened brush off on me, and here I am still just going with the flow, because it’s all I know, and it pays the bills.
But that can only last for so long before you realize that you can explore any and every other possible business and living option on youtube until you find one that really clicks with you. Then, you can make arrangements to transition into that new game.
But it isn’t easy. You have to chip away at it, because setting up other projects when you have a full time day job is, well, exhausting at times..
Don’t get me wrong. I’m still dependent. I’m dependent on going to my day job to live 100%. I’m just here to share key insights and lessons that I learn along the way.
But I’m not going to wait until I’m the super time and money independent dude to drop nugs of wisdom 😉
So, are you dependent? Most of us are dependent to be at our day job this month to pay the rent next month, but this is the norm.
That’s why I’m trying to break that dependence. Will I always be dependent on money, yes. That’s why I chose to build things now that get me sales all the time, instead of ‘trading’ my time to get sales day-to-day.
Therefore, I will not be DEPENDENT on my time spent somewhere or doing one thing to get paid that day.
You need to be living INDEPENDENT of locations and activities that are arbitrary just to get currency, which is the only thing that we are really dependent on.
Free your TIME, dedicate it to exploring your ambitions and interests, THEN life is really real, not a matrix.
But how, you ask? How do I make money with out being someplace, or doing a trade every day? Well, the simple way to put it is – instead, BUILD something that people can find and buy at any time – something that sells itself, regardless of what you’re doing day to day.
Right now I’m studying building websites that sell (other people’s) specific items, for commissions, without having to actually touch the product myself. It’s just helping people find what they’re looking for online and providing a trustworthy website to collect their information on. Done. Automate the mundane daily tasks and repeat!
I’ve subscribed this ‘owning’ something is the way to go’ mentality for two years now, so my brain happened to lead me to find DropShipLifestyle.com and it just made the most sense to me out of anything I’ve seen thus far, so I’m transitioning there. More on progress later. *[2016 Update: We’re successful Amazon sellers now guys! But you probably already know that!😝 ]
Just droppin sum Nugz o’ Wizdom guys, that I think might be helpful if your thinkin along the same lines. I’m right here with all of you on the Internet, trying to figure this thing out. I’ve only been on the Internet for a year now, and by that I mean trying to make a business out of it, and this is what I’m currently doing because it’s made the most sense aka clicked with me the most so far. Ya dig?
