Imagine waking up in the morning ready to kick ass each and every day—and going to bed every night looking forward to getting up with vigor the next morning. Even on the weekends, setting your alarm to get up early so that you can get a head start on your reading, writing or physical conditioning. After all there are only 7 days in a week and 18-20 hours a day to get things done.
This is living as man should, viewing each day as an opportunity to get better; an opportunity to achieve personal greatness. There is no more exiting and fulfilling manner in which to live. You will know in your core that it is right and as the Creator desires. You will have a white hot focus, powerful stores of energy and a man’s courage.
And then eventually, all of this will begin to manifest itself in intangible ways.
Of course the challenges in life will continue to come at you and you will learn to handle them with confidence, composure and ease. Sure there will still be some lingering doubt and anxiety once in a while, but you will make the needed mental adjustments and consistently rise above the situation and stand tall. This will result in a high level of confidence and a cool calmness as you go about each day. There will be no doubt in your mind that you will eventually get your way and be able to handle all that life can throw at you.
And then one day you will notice it; reality and fortune will begin to bend in your favor.
In some respects, problems and challenges will almost begin to solve themselves. Many of your plans will start to fall in line, sometimes in an even better fashion than you had planned for. Unforeseen opportunities will just present themselves and 360 degree win-win situations will seem to follow you around.
People will begin to apologize for getting in your way, step aside of their own volition and be pleased to do so. And last, but not least, there will be many occasions where female glances last just a little bit longer than they should, where attractive women stand a little bit closer than you would expect and where there seems be a new pattern of flustered and flattering somewhat awkward female behavior in your presence.
Yes indeed, you will think to yourself one day—Max was right, I am Becoming a Force of Nature.
A Man of Action
No question about it, to be a Force of Nature is to be a man of action. You will handle things and you will get things done. Procrastination will be a thing of the past and “proactive” will become your middle name. Goals, tasks and difficulties will be written out and then cut down one by one. It will be a never ending list, but then that’s just the way it is for men who press ahead each day of their lives as the tip of the spear. No matter, there will be a keen and level immersion of joy in all that you do. This joy, tranquility and peace of mind will come from an implicit self-derived satisfaction, not extrinsic reward.
Everything will be assessed in an objective fashion and then the proper action will be taken. When challenges and obstacles present themselves you will set your emotions aside and evaluate them at arm’s length. This will allow you to remain calm and consider the facts from an objective perspective. There will be no more reacting based on your affections. Instead you will plan your course of action from reason and virtue, with the best possible outcome as the final objective.
Energy and vitality will pervade all that you do. There will certainly be a need for rest and relaxation, but only so that you can re-energize for better performance. After all, you are not Superman but simply a man pursuing his very best. And pursue your very best you will. No matter whether a problem at work, a personal issue or a situation with your woman, everything will be handled from a posture of clarity, strength and verve.
Your capacity for work, endurance in matters of importance, creativity and innovation will all rise to levels never before realized. And it will become part of your essence that you are a dynamic man evolving into a more perfect nature; there will be no stopping you. If an obstacle is indeed insurmountable, no matter, you will simply adjust course and continue on another path no worse for the wear. You will make the most of what you can from your temporary setback and continue on to succeed in the end.
This is how a man of action lives his life and how you will live yours as you internalize and act upon what you read here at BFN.
A Physical Presence
In no way do you need to become physically intimidating to be a Force of Nature, but you will indeed develop and maintain an impressive physical presence. One very important characteristic of a man living life on his own terms is that he will attain self-mastery over his physical conditioning and diet. If you are lax in this area, make it a point to get your weight under control, eat with precision and purpose and develop a high level of physical fitness.
Especially here in the west, separate yourself from the masses by getting and keeping yourself in shape. Along with developing your mind through reading and writing, maintaining your weight, adding some muscle mass and training for explosiveness should be at the foundation of your transformation. We are pursuing the long game here and to do so will require a developed mind and an excellent physique. Sure you can cut corners and still make progress in the short term. But if you do, eventually there will be a price to pay.
Lifting weights for power and employing High Intensity Interval Training is the way to go here. You will not be a power lifter, bodybuilder or marathon runner, but you will maintain an impressive frame that has functional strength and the capacity for explosiveness. To do so you will train for strength with barbells doing compound lifts such as squats, deadlifts, presses and curls. For high intensity training, gut busting sprints or traditional bag work will do. Both of these methods together will allow you to walk around as an impressive physical specimen with the ability to take care of business if you have to.
Part of what creates the magic we are looking for as a Force of Nature, is that you become the complete package as they say. You do not need to become super rich, famous or a professional athlete, but it will become obvious to those who meet you that you are living life on a higher plane. There will be an intrinsic energy that will exude from your physical person. You will stand tall metaphorically and carry yourself with power and focus. When people inquire as to all that you do, they will be amazed at your capacity and stand back in awe in a sense. You will begin to sense this and also notice that people are better for their interaction with you. You will be an inspiration to them.
All of this will begin with your impressive physical frame. People will simply accord you a higher level of respect and take you much more seriously. There is something to be said for a man that exudes health, physical power and exceptional life energy. Combine this with the confidence that comes from developing your mind and life will become a little bit easier in a sense. You will become quickly aware that you are a cut above and the result will be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Your physical and psychological momentum will lead to even more personal excellence. Such is the destiny for a man living his life as a Force of Nature.
A Benefit to Others
You will pursue your Life Mission, Life Vision and One Thing. You will not be selfish, but you will put yourself first. In the long run this is the best thing that a man can do for himself and those around him that he cares for. As a result you will be in constant pursuit of personal greatness and you will cut through each day with a vengeance. You will be an inspiration for and a benefit to your woman, children and good friends. Strangers as well will be better for their interaction with you. They will also walk away feeling inspired, complemented and impressed.
Set your standards high, push yourself every day and take your life head on. Just as with a star athlete at the world class level you will also raise the game of family members, friends and coworkers. Someone has to set the standard, why not you? Not only will you derive satisfaction from your own improvement and successes, but you will also derive the same from others as you inspire and motivate them through your example. This will be an unexpected benefit to your pursuit of personal greatness, but one that you will indeed notice one day. After all, a Force of Nature will affect its surroundings by definition. And as a man pursuing his very best, you will definitely create a positive ripple around your circle of influence.
Developing your complete self relentlessly will also put you in the best position to explicitly help those that you care for if the need should arise. As you are out there blazing your own trail, hardening your character, developing your mind and improving your financial situation, you may one day find you have the wherewithal to step up at a key point in someone’s life. It seems like part of the natural order that if you make a life changing hardcore decision to take the hard path and break new ground as a man, the Creator will provide the circumstances where you can make a big difference.
You will need to legitimately grow your character and improve your situation via some gut busting and thoughtful work, but it will all be worth it. Not only will you enjoy being a better man, but there will also be tremendous satisfaction in helping someone you deeply care for. Talk about adding meaning to your life; just wait until the day when you realize that as a self-made Force of Nature you can also change another life for the better. And some of you out there will also have the ability to add to the lives of tens, hundreds, thousands or even countless people. Trust me on this one, if you do the right thing no matter how difficult and seemingly unnoticed, at some point Divine Providence will indeed come into play.
Bend Reality and Fortune in Your Favor
Yes indeed, you will probably have to go through the fire to do it, but one day you will bend reality and fortune in your favor. I’m not saying life will get easy or that everything will work out for you without difficulty. In some respects, life might become even more challenging.
The difference will be, however, that you will have to capacity to excel and handle things that previously would have crushed you. You will stand tall and take care of what needs to be done with tenacity and verve.
Instead of waking up unmotivated and with poor morale, you will hit the ground ready to take action each day and make yourself proud. You will be living life as a man of character taking on all comers, getting back up when you get knocked down and constantly improving your life situation.
And then one day you will notice it, you will be able to project your will onto reality in a sense. Sure the flack in life will continue to head your way, but what you see in your mind will begin to become real more often than not. And sometimes there will even be unanticipated intangibles that come into play, almost like there was an invisible hand.
Whether this is indeed all you or the Creator intervening on your behalf, who knows? But what will not be in question is that you will then understand what it is to live life at your very best—to be a Force of Nature.
All the best,
