Wake up each morning with a Force of Purpose. Know what it is that you want out of life. Make sure there’s a fire inside that will light you up each day.
Find your reason. Find something that will send chills down your spine. To really live your life you’ve got to have a primary purpose that drives you forward.
Without a primary purpose or Mission your life will be dull and uninspired. Life will push you around. And there’s no way you’ll come even close to fulfilling your immense potential. This is no way for a man to live.
Find something that will imbue you with vigor, energy and direction. Find a One Thing that will get you going. It doesn’t need to be forever; just enough to fire you up and set your Trajectory on an upward run. You can figure it out as you go from there.
Action will lead to more action and then action will lead to inspiration.
Live your life as a man should and endeavor to make an impact. Better to thrash about and make a mess than to sit back and remain passive.
Take control and quietly go about your business. And Never Let Them See You Coming.
Action not Words
Now that you know where you are going and what you want, it’s time to get busy. It’s time to take action.
You will frame your destination with words and Turn Your Words Into Reality. But you will keep those words and thoughts to yourself and use them as the fuel to drive you forward. You will tell your mind what it needs to hear.
As far as others are concerned, all they will see is a man standing tall and getting things done—a man who carries himself with energy and focus. Being driven and having a strong, confident posture as such will have a positive affect on both you and those you interact with.
Making it a point to carry yourself with vigor will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Just as forcing a smile will lighten your mood, having a strong, upright and masculine posture will lift your energy level, mindset and ambition. And it will also increase your testosterone; the more the better.
In parallel, embodying a never say die attitude and a strong physical presence will raise your social standing. Even those ahead of you in the pecking order will take note as they see you on the move each day without fail. Let them learn to depend on and trust in your character and you will accrue tremendous advantage.
Be proactive and take action always. Make this your essence. Even if you make a few mistakes along the way, just brush them aside as a learning experience. Give yourself credit for having the guts and character to keep moving no matter what.
My advice though, is to keep your ambition to yourself. It is unnecessary for anyone to know the depth of your hardcore commitment. Let it simmer below the surface. There is no need to grandstand and draw attention.
Better to be modest, quiet and on the move, than always talking to impress. The latter approach smacks of a lack of character and weakness. People will sense this.
Endeavor instead to take the high road and Never Let Them See You Coming.
And the Same Goes for Your Woman
Remember talk is cheap, especially with your woman. She’s seen you at your worst and is very aware of your faults and weaknesses. Endeavor to change this reality as part of your overall purpose.
Keep quiet and let her see your deeds from now on. Even if you’ve disappointed her in the past, all can be forgotten with enough principled action. Through sheer will and perseverance you will flip the script.
And as an added bonus, keeping quiet and going about your business will stir your woman’s imagination. It will begin to dawn on her at some point there’s now more to you than meets the eye. After a while, you’ll begin to notice her watching you in “that way” and you’ll also notice a new interest and energy in the air.
Women have an evolutionary attraction to men of action, especially men with a little mystery about them. It’s hard coded into their DNA. Women throughout human history who aligned themselves with ambitious, proactive men are those whose progeny you see walking around today; and those who are attracted to the same type of man.
So this will be a good test for you then in your Action not Words philosophy. You can make it a game of sorts and apply what you learn to the rest of your endeavors.
After all, these are some of the things that make life worth living in this world. The Creator designed a polarity between the sexes for a reason.
So add some excitement to your life in a variety of ways.
Quietly go about your business and keep taking action.
Let Them Underestimate You
Most often in life it’s good to have a low profile. And it’s good to have a plan. Especially if that plan is the unbridled ambition to become the very best you can be.
Never mind what anyone else thinks. Let them all underestimate you if they want. Please yourself. That’s all that really matters in the end.
There are many who spend half their life trying to impress people they don’t even like. Do not make the same mistake. It’s a shallow existence and beneath you. Learn instead to please your own Soul—Enjoy Your Own Company.
Quietly go about your business without drawing any unnecessary attention. Pursue intrinsic values and avoid the lure of the superficial.
Carry yourself with a strong and confident posture, but always put substance before style. Make Virtue, Excellence and Quality the essence of your character. And make sure these core values drive all that you do.
Remaining humble and driven and being unconcerned with the superficial will also act as a filter. You will attract like minded people and easily identify those you do not want to associate with.
And surrounding yourself with others of like mind will only help to propel you forward. Associating with high quality men and women will only make you better. Do not let anyone pull you in the wrong direction.
As for those whose main goal is to maintain a high profile and look down on their lessers, you will let them think what they want. And the same goes for your rivals. You will let them underestimate you at their own peril.
You will let them all forget about you until one day when the compounding effects of living a life of No More Zero Days puts you on a higher plane. Until living with principle and a defining Life Mission hardens you and sets you apart.
One day you’ll bump into one of these high flyers and you’ll see it in in their eyes. The weight of your character will impact them unexpectedly. They will know it, you will know it and they will know you know they know it.
They will see a man who knows who he is, a man of accomplishment, an impressive physical presence and a man with peace of mind.
But since it doesn’t really matter to you what other people think, you’ll just smile and be on your way.
It will be somewhat amusing, however, as you note to yourself how they indeed never saw you coming.
Always be Respectful and Courteous
As a man of solid character and quiet ambition, always be respectful and courteous. No matter what the social or professional standing of whom you’re dealing with, treat them all with class. Treat people as you would like to be treated as they say.
Make it a point to have every interaction be a positive one. Even in difficult circumstances, conduct yourself at the highest possible level. Be patient and courteous, even with those who don’t deserve it.
The goal is to generate positive energy, always and everywhere you go.
For those interactions which are transient, use them as an exercise to develop your talents. It will be enjoyable to see people unexpectedly pleased with your courtesy and consideration. There’s no question that seeing even complete strangers smile and take note of your kindness will have a positive effect on your day. It will lift you up.
And for those people you will have to deal with over the long term, consider each discussion or meeting an investment. You will turn them so to speak. You will let them see the light of your character and make them the better for it.
Do all of this without expectation. Do it as a matter of principle. Outlast Them All with courtesy and consideration.
Eventually you will interact with people on an intuitive level. There is indeed a level of mastery available to those who work at it long enough. You will know when you’re there because you’ll be able to feel the positive energy that is generated with each encounter. And it will flow both ways.
Yes indeed, you will be tapping into a higher plane and it will help clear a path. People will go out of their way to help you. Sometimes it will be so unexpected and so surprising it will touch your Soul.
No man is an island. So be smart and never let them see you coming—always treat people with courtesy and respect.
Disarm everyone with class. Put them at ease, raise their spirits and both they and you will benefit.
Quietly Go About Your Business
Develop a will of iron, smoldering below the surface. Figure out who you are and what’s important so that you’ve got direction and focus driving you forward each day.
Don’t waste any energy on the superfluous and superficial. Drill down on your core interests and goals. Keep to yourself and take action. Day after day, week after week and month after month keep paring away.
Never mind what anyone else is doing or what anyone else thinks. Let them underestimate you at their own peril. If you’re pursuing your very best and conducting yourself with Virtue that’s all that matters.
Make Excellence and Quality a part of every action. Pursue a simple elegance and quiet perfection.
Live your life as such and you can’t fail. Slowly but surely you’ll create a gap between yourself and all the rest.
And then one day you’ll look back at the other 95 percent lagging far behind.
Never Let Them See You Coming.
All the best,
