Being Realistic = Ridiculous
I was having a conversation with a long-time friend of mine, Shen, whom I've known since I was 8 years old. Some of the best memories we had together were times where we used to catch spiders and put them into the school bags of girls in our class. We were always blessed with the uncanny ability to avoid being caught. Conventional thinking would classify this behavior as something worthy of 3 strokes of the cane. In my world, such a skill is an asset Our conversation then progressed on towards our present working lives. This was when things began to turn... ugly.
This part of the conversation turned out to be some pretty horrible stuff to hear. Here I was, speaking to Shen, whom back in the glory days, was all about doing whatever the hell he wanted, getting away with it... living excitably and happily in the process. He was always the one who told me that "All that matters is we are happy!" I took his advice and made good with my life... so I expected so much more from him. Now I found him working as a tele-marketer, earning about $1,900... in a good month. This was when I decided to knock some sense into him. I would like to share a perspective in life which I advocate with burning passion.
I hope that this post will serve to help you see the universe from another amazing angle.
Being Realistic is also Being RIDICULOUS
I say this with good reason.
Let's use the SIMPLEST of logic to put things in perspective.
Let's talk about Saturation for a start.
to cause (a substance) to unite with the greatest possible amount of another substance, through solution, chemical combination, or the like.
To quote a real-world example, I'll use bubble tea. The Bubble Tea market is largely saturated. If you are not :
1) Excellent (Koi Bubble-Tea, with it's extensive and customizable Menu, high quality standards and rave reviews)
2) Unique (Gong Cha, which is a niche brand of Bubble Tea that has a loyal audience)
3) The Most Accessible (Sweet Talk, which is very affordable and readily available)
If you are neither of these 3, then you are in deep trouble. If you choose to be a bottom-middle feeder, you will be left to play the chasing game, which is a tiring and draining process which brings upon FAILURE as soon as you decide to not chase. You know this to be true simply by taking a look at the bubble-tea stores that come and go.
Saturation is a LAW of the universe, this much is clear so far.
Why Work So Hard To Be ANOTHER Face In The Crowd?
Now here's the thing about being realistic and chasing mediocrity : IT IS A SATURATED IDEA!
Let's use our brain and powers of logic for a moment. Everyone out there is holding onto the same friggin' degree as the next person. The next thing that your future employer will look out for is going to be : What makes you different from everyone else?!
"Blimey!" you say. All this time, your effort was spent working towards becoming just like everyone else! This is why hands-on training is the most valuable part of a learning process. It allows you to see how you can contribute in the most outstanding way known to you.
It is far easier to be chasing something unrealistic than to be chasing something realistic. The fishing is better where fewer people fish. YOU are your greatest asset because YOU have within you unique qualities, abilities and talents to go further in your unique direction than anyone else out there!
This belief lead me to become who I am today, a Man who lives freely doing the very things that he wants to do... at any time he pleases. I have always loved meeting and being around people, so I took that interest and ran with it. I UNREALISTICALLY sought to become an expert (BY EXPERIENCE) on this passion of mine which fascinated me to no end. 2 years on and not only do I hold the most impressive track-record among dating coaches in my region, I personally believe I am unbeatable in my field. My talent and ability has allowed for me to travel the world doing what I loved and was good at. It is an amazing feeling... a dream come true.
Maverick Hustlers in Taiwan for The Highlife Experience
One year ago, I found something else that excited me. I wanted to promote the idea of LIVING A LIFE OF EXCELLENCE. I wanted to bring forward the idea that we do not live to exist, but we exist to live. That was when I established Success Initiative and created The Maverick Hustler Movement, to show people how to live a life they have always dreamed of in that unique and effective way that only I know.
Today, I find myself financially capable of leading the amazingly exciting and fulfilling life of my dreams. I got here by doing 3 things :
1) Knowing what I wanted to do.
2) Believing in my talents and abilities. (so important! Whatever you believe, you are RIGHT.)
3) Taking action and aiming to be the very best at doing what I wanted to do.
The truth is, most people don't even have #1 and #2 figured out. I know this from 3 years of experience in orchestrating amazing turnarounds in life. This is why I wrote my first ever e-book, The Maverick Hustler Success Formula, a guide on how to not only accomplish #1 and #2, but living a life of success WITH STYLE! The e-book is in the final stages of editing and it's going to be available on the site real soon. I cannot wait for it to be released!
Alright folks, we'll be checking in with you guys again real soon with a very interesting story from Laveen and how he manages to get into clubs for free haha. Until next time...
