What I don’t understand is why some of you will settle for anything less than being happy and successful. As simple as that sounds, many of you out there are indeed settling for much less. And I’m telling you right now there is no reason to do so.
I don’t care what has happened to you in the past or whether what did happen was your fault or not, it is never too late to turn the corner—it is never too late to become untouchable.
Why the hell not? Do you think you’re the first man to make some bad mistakes and hurt yourself or hurt others? Or do you think you’re the first man to get a raw deal in life at some point?
What is behind you is of no import. That time has passed. Its only value is as a tool for remembering what doesn’t work.
Think about it for a moment. Each second that passes is of no further use. There is literally nothing you can do with any moment in time that burns into the past. All that really matters is right now and where you are headed.
Make a firm decision to live life in the present moment from now on. This is the first step.
Not for the moment, but in the moment. There is a difference. The former is hedonistic in nature and the latter is Stoic. Hedonism is based on externally driven pleasure and Stoicism is based on internally crafted happiness and peace of mind.
Pleasure is fleeting and it will take more and more of it to satisfy you until it eventually turns sour and you become a slave to it. External stimuli create pleasure and thus it can be easily taken away.
Happiness is long lasting and has a cool and even momentum. It is very difficult to be taken away because it is based on core principles and implicit values. It is internally derived.
Let this idea of living life in the present moment enter your consciousness. Make it a priority. Keep entertaining the idea and repeat it over and over again. Reprogram your own mind. Your mind is only second to your soul as a gift from the Creator, but it is unique like nothing else in the universe.
You have the innate ability to teach your own mind how to think simply by telling it so and then taking action. Do this with the concept of living in the present moment and it will change your life for the better.
Living in the now will free you from your past and release you from anxiety about the future. In a sense it will make you a new man. It will allow you to begin.
Without your past holding you back and without worry about the future you are free to power through each moment. You are now free to cut through each day with a vengeance and achieve personal greatness.
So what do I mean by becoming untouchable?
You don’t need to be rich or famous or be the best in the world at something, but you do need to have a Purpose. Find your purpose, take action and you will distinguish yourself among men.
A man who is untouchable stands tall, lives a high energy life and does not care what other people think. He is a man who is his own best company and yet is also magnetic in nature to others.
No man is invulnerable and no man is immune to difficulties, but a man who is untouchable will fight like hell to keep pressing forward. He will embrace his trials and grind it out. He will find a way through, a way out, a way around or a way over. He will not stop and he will not quit. He will outlast them all.
A man who is untouchable owns his shit. Everything may not be perfect in his life, but he is hell bent on pursuing excellence and quality in everything he does. And as he walks around other men will sense his fierceness. Position and status won’t matter.
There are some things that men can simply see in other men. They will see that he lives his life on a different plane. That he moves and lives with a unique energy. And they will innately respect him.
He is not a complex man, but simply works the fundamentals like few others will. This is his secret. He will make them an art form until they become intuitive and part of his essence. Until they become second nature and then compound into something special.
Our man will also cut away all the shallow distractions in his life. At some point enough is enough with these self-sabotaging and unhealthy behaviors. Eventually stupidity becomes tiresome and boring. It becomes beneath his immense potential and a complete waste of time.
Yes indeed, doing everything right will eventually begin to bend the natural order in his favor. There are no guarantees of course, but more often than not life will begin to become easy. What used to be hard will no longer be so. And what used to be impossible will suddenly become a possibility.
And then the real magic will begin to occur. New opportunities and new possibilities will begin to take shape. A whole new existence will become possible.
This is living as a man should, pursuing his very best every day until his best goes beyond his imagination.
Where life becomes a pure challenge and each day he breaks new ground.
And then one day it will finally happen.
He will know his character is all he really needs.
He has become untouchable.
All the best,
