The Power of Imagination

Audio Version:

So today I want to talk about imagination. In a world where with the power of the internet can basically access all of the worlds knowledge with just a couple of buttons it is important to not get stuck inside of an auto-pilot trap. It is true that many things such a surviving is getting easier especially in the developed world. All heavy lifting the machines and computers can now do. But we still have to do one thing and that is to use our imagination.

The first thing we have to understand about the universe is that it seems to constantly expand. It seems to have no end. So in that case it means complexity and knowledge and whatever you want in life is already available in an infinite form. You just gotta use your imagination to tap into that source. For example I have noticed this when I have been producing YouTube videos. The more videos I do the more new better video ideas I get. And the less videos I do. The less ideas I get. So the more I take action the more my mind starts to expand. You discover that there is no limit.

Important In Creativity to Warm Up!

I have for example noticed that when I do 10 videos quick without much thinking but just producing. Then the real good ideas comes after I have done that. So the first part sorta works as a warm up. It’s kind of like in any sports that people exercise. They have to stretch and prepare for a game or a practice. Many times we gloss over the WARM UP part. We need to understand how critical this part is. If we don’t take it seriously then we will get less of everything.

Some people call this the law of abundance. That whatever thing you put out into the universe will come back to you. What I have noticed is the more you give the more you actually see your full potential and the insanity of how infinite this whole maze of life seems to be.

A key thing here that I have noticed to become more imaginative is that you have to expose yourself to a bunch of new information daily. To get new data and input that you later can sort through. If you don’t get exposed to new ideas or thoughts your mind will grow more weak and lazy. Because we humans are open systems.

There is an amazing book I am currently reading on this topic of imagination from Napoleon Hill. It’s called The Law of Success. Here is a great quote about this idea of thoughts. That they can be extremely powerful and affect other’s far away from you:

Ignorance Is Bad

We have a lot of ignorance that we have to fight against in our life’s. The more you learn and read the more you become aware that you don’t know anything. It make’s you more humble. But also grateful because you see that there is more to life than just the regular auto-pilot mode most people are on. The reason why we are in this auto-pilot mode is because of a lack of imagination.

Or lack of understanding that we have the most powerful tool in the universe always with us. Our brain and it’s intellect. Maybe we are afraid of it also to discover it’s fullest potential. But it can really open up interesting doors and thought patterns you never thought was possible. Being exposed to new information can of course come from other sources than books.

Chaos Can Be Good! 

I have noticed that chaos in my environment for example will stimulate my brain to see new things and connect new ideas together. It’s like a plate of Taco’s full of colors and diversity.

I used imagination to discover that if you use a speech to text app on your phone then you can get 1,000 word’s down on paper in just 7 minutes. That is around 35 pages in 1 hour and a full book in 8 hours. Now of course it would require a lot of editing but you see my point. My imagination got me to that realisation.

We have these ideas that maybe writing a book should take months or years. When it could be done in 1 week. With deeper focus and attention and living in the present moment. This will of course open up your imagination even more. If you can finish writing a book in 1 week then what would you be able to accomplish in one full year?

Another great quote fromThe Law of Success about how negative energy also can affect us very easily so we need to control what we surround ourself with. Which also goes to show that we aren’t closed systems as humans:

Be a creator more then a consumer!

Why aren’t more people producing videos, making songs, making podcast’s, writing blog posts. When you now with the internet have access to billions of people! Imagine all these humans that you have a super easy way to access. Never in past history has such a massive opportunity for creativity and imagination existed as of now.

Or for example think about all these daily things you are struggling with. Problems in your life. If it’s a problem in your life maybe it’s something that other people also struggle with? And if it’s a mainstream problem you can work on a solution to that problem and sell it to others. You see everyone has some problem in their life and something they want to be fixed. You can be that problem solver.

For example you can sell digital products with WordPress and deliver them digitally for free. Bet you haven’t even thought about that!

Complexity!

Usually we don’t like problems and run away from them but just imagine the power you have if you can learn to become a problem solver that can solve any problem that come’s your path.

I heard this great thing which is so true and that is that you get paid in proportion to the complexity of problem you are solving. So if you are just solving an easy problem then you will be paid low. But if you find a way to solve a more complicated problem then you will be better paid. For example let’s say you design a website for someone or you learn how to program an app. Now you have used your imagination more and will be able to be paid more.

Of course this intense level of imagination will fire up your brain’s dopamine levels that will make you feel good and win more in life. Your brain will enjoy that you are doing something new. Instead of just the same old stuff. A great book from Ian Robertson called The Winner Effect discusses a lot the connection between dopamine and winning. Here is a great small quote reminding you that the human connection can many times make you feel way better than monetary rewards that humans can get stuck in:

Imagination will be very hard if you don’t get exposed to new data and information. We humans are like sponges. Everyone around us has an effect on our life. So we need to be sure we choose good sources. For example if you want to be a programmer you have to find those sources in life and surround yourself with them. Eventually they will start to rub off on you. And you will become that.

Have a great day!

Why Steve Jobs Is The Most Overrated CEO

Audio Version:

I have never understood the obsession with Steve Jobs. Apple’s CEO. Surely he did some interesting things but this extreme obsession with him is just silliness. Surely he has done some decent things in terms of communication. But if you look at today the modern time the internet hasn’t really moved society forward. We are actually having more and more issues. The phones and gadgets Steve Jobs came out with has it made society more intelligent? Or are we going back in time?

Old School!

When phones was just a basic way to communicate via voice people went out to see each other. Now people stay inside and play some game alone. All these devices Steve Jobs came out with has made society more lazy and we are more a passive culture. Desperate for a hero. The middle class chose Steve Jobs. They needed a modern hero and instead of using someone who has stood the test of time like Leonardo Da Vinci they chose a person who loved money and was obsessed with vanity.

What happen’s when people get obsessed with 1 hero figure? They become mostly passive. They think that person did something amazing that other’s people cannot do. They oversimplify life. Should we celebrate gadgets that are actually making people lazier? Sure some use it to progress in their life but most people are falling behind. And the rich are constantly getting richer. Shouldn’t we strive for beauty, truth and knowledge instead of mass consumerism?

Greek Wisdom!

Why not have some real role models like philosophers like Plato and Aristotle? I bet there are people out there that will argue Steve Jobs has done more for history than these massive Greek heroes. Or what about the Ancient Egypt? With their amazing Pyramids clearly they also shows that we have been way more intelligent in the past than what we are as of 2017. We live in a time of lowering our standards.

People instead of creating websites they put all their stuff and work on “social media”. These services can be gone in 2 seconds. All your life work forever erased. Or if the electricity to your iPhone would go away how would people be able to take care of themselves. Clearly this phone industry and computer industry mostly have been a capitalist way to take over the world.

Lazy Middle Class

Maybe Steve Jobs had a starting idea about changing the world but it’s not how it has worked out. To be honest society would be way better off without all this so called “progressive technology”. The only thing it does for 99% of people is making them lazier and passive. Instead of worrying about their family they worry about things far away from them.

The human consciousness is already low as it is. But the extreme zombie state we are now starting to develop will be even wilder than ever before. You can barely see a person walk on the street without their eyes glued to an iPhone screen. Is this progress? No it’s going back.

People used to talk to each other in relationships now they rather just talk into a screen. Or play a stupid video game. Maybe we will one day improve our brain with technology but I do not think so. Just look how little progress that has happened with phones from 2007 to 2017. 10 years and the only update we have seen is a bit bigger screen. But it’s just moving in a slow update stage to make as much money as possible.

Knowledge!

Was Steve Jobs creative? Yes. Is he a hero? No absolutely not. People do have this addiction into believing he did something nobody else can do. What a joke! We all are humans with a brain and can do exactly what he did. With the same effort or more we can do more even. There are literally millions of people out there that is just like Steve Jobs. But instead of taking action and use their creativity they obsess about Steve as he did something nobody else can do.

For some reason if you make a lot of money people think you are a genius. It’s not true. It’s just more 0s we are still the same silly humans. I have done over 9000 videos on YouTube and I can tell you people are in such a deep zombie state you wouldn’t believe it. On average people spend 2 mins on a video after 1 click. On just a stupid video! And then people look at you like you are a modern day genius. We are not. We just took action.

Fanatics!

My main idea I wanna leave you with is stop obsessing over Steve Jobs please. I have seen so many people obsess about him like he is a genius. Just because he stands and say some words at a pretentious university doesn’t mean he is a genius. It’s all just a show folks. The middle class loves the fantasy of a hero and their gadgets. What would they do without them? The gadgets starts to own their life.

Be strong and just go out and take action. Produce a lot. Be an owner over your own work. Make an email list and gather an army of loyal fans that wanna be your family! You have infinite potential and be strong. Burn away your weakness by taking lot’s of action and reading intelligent books. And this blog of course. Learn from other’s but don’t put anyone above you like they are so above you. They are not. They have just taken more action so they get better results in life.

I Love My Life!

If I can make money then so can you. I remember one guy once said to me on Facebook. You will never make any money on YouTube. 12 months later I was making 5,500 euro in one month from YouTube. I took his real feedback and wanted to prove him wrong. Now I have been able to live on my dream since 2012 in a full-time mode. It’s been a paradise experience. If I can do that in 12 months just remember you can do the same. You have infinite potential. Stay strong!

The Importance of Being an Owner!

Audio Version:

One of my favourite concept’s is the idea of being an owner of all the things in your life. When you are an owner in life you have full control over the direction of your life. And you have much more freedom. Sure it will take more work to become an owner of certain parts of your life but the work is never the problem once you get into a flow of it. Once you start to get into a flow of work you actually like the process of growth.

Being an owner of parts of your life involves so many things. For example having your own business. It’s about more responsibility in life. It will turns us into full adults faster. When we truly are responsible we also many times feel free and put in more effort and work. Because we know we can control the outcome. There are many interesting ways you can become an owner over parts of your life.

Apps!

You can start with things we take for granted. Let’s take a basic app on Android that is being a calculator. Why not make your own calculator? And use your own app? Maybe it will take a week to learn but after you learned that skill suddenly you have taken a massive step into being more of an owner. In learning new things we take big leaps into become owners in life.

I have another example when I was researching products on Amazon. I found out that many of these products we think are special because it has a brand logo on it. That you can actually order these gadgets already from China and create your own custom branding! Suddenly if you would do that you would use something with your company name on it! How cool. Another major step into becoming an owner.

Small Steps!

So this idea of becoming an owner it can happen in small steps. Once you see the small steps are working you can try bigger ones. And build up higher levels of self-confidence. With the power of the internet becoming an owner over your life the knowledge you would need is all there for you to pickup.

But just because knowledge is easily available these days most people end up not value it. Or see the potential in it. This all comes down to one thing I was talking about in another blog post about the importance of paying attention in life. If you pay close attention in life to the task you are involved in you will see things other people do not see. But it will require you to focus with a deeper level of intensity.

One of my favorite books of all time talking about human nature is a book from a great author who have had many jobs and observed human nature a lot. He is called Robert Greene and here is a great quote from his book The 50th Law:

I will also add some more quotes from this book in this blog post because it has some intense raw truth quotes.

To be able to have this intense focus in life you have to study consciousness more in life and how it works. For example right now you can open another tab in your browser and google “human consciousness”. I’m sure it will bring up some interesting results. And I have also been talking about it in other blog posts.

Limitless Loop!

Being an owner means limitless opportunities where you can take your life. If you do not become an owner usually what will happen is you will slowly be trapped by other peoples goals to become owners. This doesn’t happen because someone is mean. It’s just a natural law that if you do not take control over your life someone else will. We think we are independent islands in life while that is not the case.

We also absorb new information and always get’s influenced by other sources. Whatever we like it or not. It is happening. So you better take control over things that has an influence on you. And try to make sure it’s from good sources.

Wake Up!

We humans wanna be awake. Not asleep. Basic jobs and not being owners of our lives put’s us into a sleep mode. Because repetitive jobs will keep you unconscious. More responsibility in life will keep you awake. Because your life will be more at risk If your business don’t go well. So you have to become extremely good at business and become an adult very fast.

Another great quote from The 50th Law:

Usually what happens is you will find out the world isn’t as scary place as you made it up in your life. There is always help to get from all kinds of sources. And nature love’s a good hearted person and will help that person as much as it can. Being a slave and not an owner over my life scares me.

Internet Opportunities!

The world we live in is way more safe than in the past. We do not live in the jungle anymore but our tribal brain still thinks we are. Because the world have changed rapidly over the last 100 years. The amount of opportunity people have with a tool like the internet is mind-blowing. The internet should be used to network as much as possible and actually build real connections that can move your life forward.

But many people do not take advantage of the internet. You have all the knowledge available right in your phone. The amount of limitless potential that exists is so wild. Back in the days to be able to get knowledge was super hard. Because books was expensive. But now in history there is a short window where knowledge is available for a cheap price so you should try to suck up as much good knowledge as possible.

Changes!

Because we never know if this internet thing will last. It can be closed down tomorrow. Because if it’s one thing that mother nature has taught us then it is that life is always changing. Things are in constant change. So if you are not changing then you are probably being left behind. The more knowledge we learn the more we will find out how ignorant we have been in the past. Thinking that we know a lot. When in fact most of human society is in a state of deep unconsciousness mode.

And a good ending quote also from The 50th Law:

Have a great day!

The Future Zombie robot-class of Humans!

I have this idea where this world might be going. Based on what I see happening in AI and robot automation. I predict a future of robot-class of humans.

The new robot-class do not create anything themselves in The New World. Nothing original about them. They dress like their group. We already right now have this massive trend of instead of creating original content on social media people instead share someone else content. And that trend seems to be growing more and more. It slowly makes people more lazy.

Future Man? 

The future robot-class that I imagine will live automatic life’s without any so called freedom as we have now with jobs. I just don’t think there is that much hope for everyone to have a unique job when we get close to 10 billion population and AI robot automation is on the rise to take over more and more jobs. Most jobs are extremely repetitive and that means robot can easily take over most jobs.

People are on pills… 

I have 1 theory that they maybe just will create a drug you can take to always walk around in a happy pleasure state. But will it really be happy mode without the ups and downs we get to experience in regular life. As far as what I have noticed in my life when I suffer a lot I know that joy is just around the corner. And that the suffering will make the joy feeling even better. The beauty I think with life is how it seems to be perfect in it’s natural state.

You have many people that are thinking about maybe that we will merge with the technology and become super humans. To be honest I do not think that is going to happen. It would probably end up be too expensive and if it worked the first people becoming superhuman would stop the rest from getting the same benefit. I think we are more moving into a dark age of zombies.

Wise Men Should Be The Leaders of Nations 

What is the solution then you might ask? Well as far as we know now is do everything you can to not become part of the robot-class. Be TRULY original. Break free as much as you can. Creating original stuff is noble and the only right way forward. What I’m suggesting is people need to stop being addicted to just consuming. We need more Plato and Aristotle prolific humans. Make sure it’s something you love you do also. Then it won’t even be work but will be tied to your deepest passion and make you excited everyday.

It can take along time to truly find out what you should be doing in your life. My suggestion is that you read a lot of knowledge books and that you write down all your ideas on paper. Or on video. Or your favourite way. So you can keep track of what your core ideas and values always comes back too. I made a great article about productivity telling you my Top 4 Favorite Apps on Android!

The Digital World

One massive danger and problem that I see is how everything is going digital these days. Shut down the electricity and humans won’t be able to survive for long. Also that all of our information will be going away without electricity. This is probably why they built the tall pyramids in Egypt like the Great Pyramid of Giza. They knew that if they wanted to keep history and knowledge for thousands of years they would need a hard material and create something amazingly beautiful and perfect.

Many people seems to believe we live in the smartest age because we have invented these so called computers. I would say that’s a bit ignorant. We can’t even build the Egypt pyramids today with all of our “knowledge”. So clearly people have been way more wiser and smarter than us in the past.

Evil Exist 

If you would take some ancient people into our year 2017 and they saw humans they probably would look at our phones as the devil. How much we stare into these things. Thinking that we are conscious of what we are doing when we are more in a zombie state instead of being out in the world and doing stuff. Living in the present moment.

You have many futurist scientist’s which is talking about this new robot age and where it might take us. Ray Kurzweil in his book The Singularity Is Near said this quote:

I have a hard time to believe this can end well. The ignorance in humans seems to be on a constant rise. And with more people getting spoon fed zombie stuff through their phones the more they will be moved away from an authentic human life experience.

Maybe Labs Create More Problems Than Solving… 

I wouldn’t be surprised if in the future Fruits and Vegetables doesn’t even exist to eat! Everything is created in a lab. With strange ingredients we have no idea how it will impact our life. We probably also very soon will be getting a chip programmed in us to keep track of every human on earth.

I am curious how this new society will affect the crime market when there is a camera in every corner and is tiny . Clearly it feels like in the future everyone will just know everything about everyone. With no secrets. But will it awake humans or will it put us more into sleep?

That is what I am interested in finding out.

Aristocrats!

1 thing is clear we are moving into strange times that our tribal brains have no idea how to handle yet. I mean think how insane it is how you can contact any company or any person on earth just using an internet connection. How in the past knowledge was only something the royalty could afford to do. Now knowledge is everywhere but also a lot of garbage. Anyone can spread so called “knowledge”. Lots of things can be misinterpreted.

It does seem like we are moving into a more spiritual world where the physical environment will be less important. For example I believe that the idea of owning a house or a car in the future will be so silly. Everything will be rented. How to be original will also be harder the more humans that exist on earth.

There will be a lot of group pressure to fit into the sheep herd.

Just some things I been thinking about! Hopefully you enjoyed this article. Have an awesome day.

The “Buy Beauty” Popular Effect

The problem with beauty as in cars is its a form of “beauty for the masses” its a form of “buy beauty” the idea of buying beauty you can argue if it’s something you can do. Surely you can buy outer layer beauty of forms but that deepest sense of “truest” beauty can you ever buy that? That deepest layer of beauty is I think always so close for us to go reach, and that’s the wildest part. If we always have that deepest beauty with us and always can create more by learning more things in life then wow.

Money!

And that the rich many times feels starved of beauty but instead of go create beauty a month they go and buy a million dollar painting. It is a bit interesting to think about. What I am trying to say is we have beauty in every particle around us. There is nothing that we need to go out and seek externally from us. As I have said in the past the beauty down to the smallest particle, or the beauty in nature, or in knowledge and wisdom.

Beauty that is just as nice when you pay close attention as maybe an expensive car. We many times think money can have a magical effect in our life’s when actually when we look around already have everything we need to move ahead in life. It also then comes down that you add standards into your life of the beauty level you wanna hold yourself up too.

Energy!

As you get older you learn exactly what kind of energy you want around yourself and you can be more picky with who you add to your life. These days I just want the happiest most pure beauty intelligent people in my life. Does this person fit into my life* Do I have time to invest in this person* Do we both gain value from our relationship is it win/win*, is this relationship leeching?

Tribes!

We humans are designed for tribes of around 150 people according to various research. So try to find 150 quality relationships. Those quality relationships will add so much love to your life that you will be able to do anything.  Really go for quality relationships that adds a ton of love over quantity draining relationships.

A great quote that I really liked from the book A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle.

Have a great day!
