There’s no school, college or university in the world that will teach you how to play life’s game. However, everybody is trying to do something anyway that “makes sense” and they dive into working, studying and replicating what the world say is the path to fill that void inside.
And that void….is your life.
You do what you are told, but yet you don’t feel like you are alive.
Weird right? You follow the rules and the common sense and STILL you are searching ways that will teach you how to play this game. And I assume you haven’t figured it out yet.
Do you know why?
Here’s the short answer:
Lasting results only come after you understand 3 areas of life and which I’ll cover in this article.
I’m going to talk about 3 main points:
- PEOPLE – How to treat people to make yourself happier
- MONEY – How to deal with money to achieve success faster
- HEALTH – How to reach levels of physical greatness
All 3 are very important and I’ll give you the basics. The 101 of Life.
Ok, let’s start my friend.
PEOPLE — “THEY ARE JUST LIKE YOU”
The problem with today’s world is that people don’t CARE about people. Sad but true. Most of us are focusing on fighting our battles just so we can make ourselves happy and wealthy and live an awesome life for ourselves. But the END GOAL shouldn’t be even near that objective.
Because if you live by a selfish mentality then your own life will be very poor, very short on passions and ultimately…very lonely. Playing life’s game to get your part of the gold and happiness from this world and leaving humanity behind will not make you happy.
Seriously, it won’t.
People enjoy being praised, being complimented, being loved.
We all want to build something E-P-I-C but we forget that in order to do that, we must start….
If you are doing your college, your MBA or working where you are working just to fill your bank account and get that vacation you want and there’s no ultimate purpose behind it, you are just a passenger on Earth and you will never be remembered. But the worst part is that you’ll HATE the ride until you die. Harsh truth.
People won’t remember you because you didn’t CARE about them.
People won’t do marketing about you because you didn’t do anything to help them.
People will soon forget that you even existed. You’ll be like a fly who populates the world, but it is not important.
And why you are not that important?
Because you lack caring and you lack love for other human beings. That’s what makes this world worse. People don’t care enough t use their skills and intelligence that were handed by God to help other people. You see, E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y must try to do the BEST with the tools, talents and gifts at their disposal to help the maximum amount of people possible. Everybody.
If you focus on that mentality and lifestyle, if you focus on helping people and caring about them this will drive you more and make you feel more alive, more USEFUL!!!!! Being useful is an important necessity of human beings. And we all would prefer to be useful instead of keep complaining about our lives.
When you say: “I’m no good for anything” you feel depressed, weak, and destroyed inside.
And when you FIND something you are really GOOD and you love doing it, you end up doing JUST FOR YOURSELF!!!
YOU FORGET ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE YOURSELF GREATER AND HELP OTHER PEOPLE.
YOU FORGET ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY TO INFLUENCE OTHERS THROUGH YOUR TALENTS.
You forget….about your True Path on this World.
If you play by the rules of selfishness YOU WILL NEVER TRULY experience these gifts:
- real appreciation
- solid happiness
- sensation of “mission accomplished”
Never. You must think that out there in the world are other people who depend on you. They depend on you to work hard on your talents and gifts to BUILD something and BECOME someone who can help them walk their roads.
If you want to be an artist and that’s something you are passionate about FOCUS on that to help others!
If you want to be an entrepreneur and you want to start a company then FOCUS on that to employ others!
If you want to become ANY FORCE OF GOOD and you feel you could be great then GO DO IT because people are depending on you to make the right choice! Don’t live for selfishness!
Could you imagine how the world would be today if:
- Martin Luther King was selfish?
- Tony Robbins was selfish?
- Eric Thomas was selfish?
- Google’s creators were selfish?
- WordPress’ creators were selfish?
There would be a totally different world in front of us today. Your world today have NEW opportunities and different ways of reaching new people around the globe. And you can create more. You can build faster. You can HELP more people with less effort in comparison with the previous decades.
THANKS to those guys who focused on PEOPLE, the world we live today is entirely different. Thanks to those guys, a black person is no longer treated like a slave. Thanks to those guys, a person in a 3rd world country can make real money if he work hard enough. Thanks to those guys….you have new opportunities to seize.
Because we have new problems. We have new frustrations and we have new monsters to deal with it. And the world NEEDS the people who want to make a difference!!! The world N-E-E-D-S you to make a difference! And by difference I mean…
CARING about others.
That’s what “making a difference” means.
So stop thinking about your goals as an end result for your own life and start thinking of goals as means-to-an-end to help the other human beings who need your help on Earth. You must make a difference and follow your spirit, your passions and execute your talents, my friend. Why? Because……guess what?
Build yourself to be part of the ARMY that is here to help people, and don’t be part of the army of passengers. You are much more than you think and if you focus hard enough and put work enough, you can accomplish great things. But remember that great things is always related to serving and helping others.
MONEY — “A FREAKING AWESOME TOOL. BUT IS JUST A TOOL”
You must understand that money isn’t a prize or something especial and neat and beautiful. If you analyze life, you’ll see that people who seek money is trying to get something entirely different. And not money itself.
People pursue money because they want more freedom.
They pursue money because they enjoy doing different things on the same day.
They pursue money because they want status and they desire that “success attention” from others.
But can you see something underneath here? Can you understand the basics about money by just reading those 3 lines? If you pay attention you can figure it out that money….
Doesn’t buy anything IMPORTANT!
It can’t buy time, it can help you save time at the most.
It can’t buy freedom, it can give you bigger gaps of freedom, but you’ll still be trapped to something like a business or an executive job or a normal job.
And ultimately, it can’t buy love.
And the best part is that you can do the same things when you use money WITHOUT money!
Can a person stay at a fancy hotel like Cesar Palace and don’t pay for it? OF COURSE! For instance, if you are friends with the owner or with someone who has influence — I said INFLUENCE — at Cesar Palace, you can probably live that experience for free.
The same applies to getting a discount at a University or entering a Gym or getting a car for example. You can have everything by being YOU and having friends!
Because money doesn’t matter.
Money is just an alternative. Is just a tool. Means to an end.
It’s a tool to help you build yourself and your skills to finally be able to serve others with excellence. That’s all you need to understand about money. A person who is friends with influential people can do the same things a person with money can do, but if you don’t have that many friends then money might help.
But money is just a RESOURCE that can make you:
- LEARN much faster
- BUILD high-quality things and projects in less time
- HELP people whenever you can’t be present for them
Buy a book, buy a premium feature, inject money into your business to make yourself better and more awesome! If you are focusing on becoming awesome, you’ll be a great resource for people in the future. Seriously. Remember that life is not about YOU but is about HOW MUCH you CAN DO for the world with your unique set of skills.
And if you don’t have a good set of skills that can serve people efficiently, then you must invest money on yourself to build a person who will be able to make a difference, a person who will be called to hear a “Thank you” and who will be praised for his life’s work.
Money is a tool. A tool to do things at a fast pace and that’s all.
Don’t love money. Don’t focus on money. Focus on yourself so you can later focus on changing the world.
HEALTH — “THE MAINTANCE FOR YOUR MACHINE”
The last item that many neglect (sadly). I think in today’s world, people believe they are like….made of iron and that the human body is just the same as a T-800 machine that doesn’t need that much maintenance.
That’s the only explanation for people who forget about taking care of their health.
And that’s why you should hear me out on this:
It really goes much beyond than “remove belly fat and be ultra-handsome and sexy”! You need to understand that your health needs to be maintained in order for you to keep going at full speed toward your goals because if you let it go, you’ll start counting wasted days in bed, eventually.
That’s the maintenance of your machine called BODY!
You must eat right, exercise and see how many hours of sleep you need to recharge. This is not just for you to focus on being productive and healthy, but more ALIVE too.
For instance, many people complain about their relationships, but they forget that when they don’t take care of themselves, the partner feels like he isn’t considered and he feels like he’s not that important.
Others complain about their jobs, but they lack the disposition to find a new path, a different place where they can work happy and therefore, spread joy instead of sadness.
Others are spending hard-earned money with meds and doctor appointments just because they forgot to take care of themselves. They prefer spending money with meds and losing unnecessary time with a medical interview INSTEAD of putting work to build a better body and thus, build a better mind and a solid health.
Health is a serious area of life and if you treat it like it’s not that important, then ALL THE OTHER AREAS will have to WAIT! It’s all based on Health.
Without health, you can’t work.
Without health, you can’t help people.
Without health, you can’t enjoy your relationships.
Without health, you can’t go shopping.
Without health, you can’t LIVE life.
You need to eat right and exercise like a champion to keep your body sharp because you have a mission on Earth and a life to live, my friend. Don’t do all the other things exceptionally and forget about the core, because you are only sabotaging yourself.
Crave in your mind that life is not easy and if you persist on doing the wrong things, you’ll be a contributor to making your own life worse. Don’t be on the wrong team, don’t live by fear, don’t focus only on yourself, don’t love money — but do love people — and don’t neglect your health.
If you force yourself in the right direction you can make a huge difference, for your own life and for the world. Remember your ultimate goals and don’t focus on your current situation because you can reverse ANYTHING if you focus enough and put enough effort.
Love life. Love people. Love yourself.
