You can only get to this point through circumstance or by choice. Getting there by circumstance is easy. Just live life, and wait for the moments when you get hit so hard you lose the ability to believe your own hype, ego, and bullshit.
Sitting around waiting for that “fuck it” moment where you take right action is how most people get there.
But there’s a faster way.
Live life on the offense instead of defense. Defense is sitting around, eating chips, getting fat, playing video games, jacking off to porn, and waiting for your ‘fuck it’ moment to happen.
Going on the offense is about stabbing yourself in the heart and twisting the knife when the failure happens. Instead of sitting around sulking about your life as it is right now, go out fail big and make it sting. Make it sting so bad you get to that ‘fuck it’ moment.
The power of right action vs wrong action.
When you get to that ‘fuck it’ moment most people take wrong action. Or stupid action. They don’t realize they are tapped into a deep unconscious self. Call it your soul, spirit, God, or what have you. It’s a dangerous point to be at if you aren’t psychologically prepared. Great art and great tragedies happen this way. Which is why living life on the offense is not for everyone.
But if you’ve made it this far, then you’re here for a reason. And that’s to take the right action instead of wrong.
Right action is about focusing that moment into something creative. Great artist tap into this all the time. Usually it’s from a source of fear, pain or insecurity. We all have fear, pain and insecurity but using them to your advantage is one way to get there. Another way is through meditation, visualization, psychedelics and, life experiences.
Living life on the offense instead of defense is about getting to where you want to go faster by taking right action and being psychologically prepared to deal with failure. Yesterday I took right action by writing 6 blog posts and 2 YouTube videos, and wrote down a bunch of ideas and still had time and energy to keep going.
If I write 1000 blog posts and nobody reads me, then at least I failed big and lived what I preach. To make it sting i’ll write another 1000 posts. To make myself bleed–I’ll do another 1000. This site is called ‘journeyto1000’ after all.
