Some Deeper Insights Into Taking Action

Audio Version:

Taking action keeps taking you back into reality again and again. And you will bump into walls again. Walls of reality that gives you real helpful feedback. The walls will slowly bounce you back and forth but in a forward progress direction.

Not the result you want you actually want the feeling of doing progress. Taking that much action will give you lots of feedback. About what you need to work on. And you will also realise how connected everything is. Becoming more grounded in accurate sense of reality. And it will make you more humble for the journey.

Just like a lens on a camera you are removing the layers of delusion and comes closer to more accurate sense of reality by constantly shift the lens into sharper focus. Low level thinking paradigms and low level desires will be stripped away from your personality by going through pain.

The layers of delusion people get from not taking action scares people. People also get scared because they don’t actually have trained their action taking ability. Your brain will start to tell you lies if you go down the paths of delusion. You quickly need to correct and move into the right direction again. If you start believing your own lies you will build a foundation where more lies will be built on.

Where is reality going in the future? This is a good question because it does seem like we are moving into a more robotic world. With Virtual Reality headset’s like HTC Vive that now can simulate a world in your home that feels like real life. By taking advantage of your senses you can generate amazing things. But there is also a risk here that it can be used to manipulate reality more. You can also argue that we are already in a simulation of the world. Elon Musk said that was a high possibility.

After I tried out the HTC Vive I am getting more confident that people will be using “reality tweak” tools more in the future. We already see it happening with how much people are addicted to their phones. They can’t live without them! They have almost become a part of our bodies!

Will reality not matter anymore? If people can just live their whole life in their homes? It does seem in a new world like this that introverted people would benefit more than extroverted. Because it will create a world where people more communicate not in fast ways but in deeper ways away from each other. So they have more time to develop elegant ideas before they release them out into the universe. There is a great personality test out there if you wanna find out if you are Introvert or Extrovert more. Called the Myers Briggs test.

Taking action has a way to throw you into the present moment when you take action with consciousness. You are actually aware of what you are doing because you do it with great attention. Which makes you forget about thoughts and emotions. Which actually feels really good. Because most of the time our thoughts puts us into a weird loop that doesn’t get us anywhere. Usually the only thing we need to do to become awake again is that conscious action taking.

There is a great little framework you can use by author Dr. Stephen R. Covey from the book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change which is very simple to use and gives you a quick view of how it can guide you with being at the center of your life. Here is a quick quote from the book:

There are of course other ways you can do this and that is by just focus on sit still and be conscious. That will also put you into a mode where eventually you wanna go up and do stuff. Instead of just being still and passive. Many times we think that thoughts = being productive. But many time’s that’s not the case. Many times we would be way more effective by just starting the task. That is also the first habit in Coveys book: Be Proactive.

Why should you take action you may wonder when you can already get by just fine by relaxing? Well you should take action because we live in a time of intense changes. And in these times if you don’t become intelligent then it will be very easy to fall behind. Because earlier we only had competition that was close to us. Now in the world we live in global competition. Which means it will be even harder to get by if you are passive.

Make everything your own in life. You must strive towards ownership. When it’s your own you work harder and from a position of power. Take the leap away from safety. We are apes designed to be out in the wild. Living day to day! Remember. People are always trying to trap you in society. To play their games. This is a great time to invest in the internet because many people don’t take advantage of the insane opportunity that exists today. So you can really exploit it by working smart. Everyone wants to outsource all work to robots and cheap workers. You can exploit this by working with heart and soul. People will detect a true spirit person above robots and cheap workers. Why people don’t work hard is because the limited position they are in. Work to become an owner.

There is a great book about how the internet is changing our brains and how it changes action taking in this world which is moving at a faster rate. The book is by Nicholas Carr he wrote the book The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains. Which has many interesting information about how these constant new online links changes our brains. Here is a great quote from the book:

Basically what this means is with the internet there is no limit on who you can contact. So if you are creative you can build new business connections super fast. Just by contacting and engaging with more people and provide help for common problems. Wanna find a list of problems people have? Go to Quora.

Internet is a great place to both take action and to become an owner. Right now to start a website is very cheap. But it’s yours. You own it. And it’s extremely valuable when you want to get content out there into the world.

The problem I see with many people is they do take action but they are building their work on someone else service. Which just means you are selling yourself cheap. Also remember that when you are more the owner over your work then you will work harder and with more pride. Which will end up in better results. And you feel more in control and it will make you be in a responsible role.

What happens with these other services is it starts out great but slowly you will realise your room to move around and have control over your work is becoming more limited. That’s when it’s time to break free.

Your time is valuable so I recommend you set up rules for when you use social media or the internet. For example I have disabled notifications on my phone. And only open up stuff after I have created new content. So I’m not just a consumer. Thanks for reading!

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.

Best Regards,

Adrian
