“Questttion, how to have school not bring you down?” Said Victor Pride, as he repeated one of his fans written questions to him.
His response…. fuck me:
“How to not have school bring you down when you are in university? Ahh, stop being a goddamn pussy. Stop being a pussy. If school is bringing you down and you are an adult, walk out. Leave. There is no reason to let something bring you down as an adult. Adults have free will, free choice. If you are letting something bring you down, I have no sympathy for you”.
That made me feel a whole lot better.
I fucken did that.
I did leave universtiy.
I knew I didn’t like what I was studying. I knew I was selling my soul away.
I’m braver than most and I needed to be reminded of that.
I sold the safe course to buy the life of my dreams.
Years on after leaving university and I have friends that have now finished their courses.
One guy I know that was studying the same course as me hates his job and probably hates his life. I see him on facebook going out a lot more on the weekends. Probably numbing the pain of his job with alcohol and “good times”.
All I can say is, I’m free, I can do whatever I want.
No massive student loans, no massive HECS debt for some course where I spent about $1000 to learn about business ethics and how to not plagerise.
WHAT THE FUCK?
I paid someone to teach me how to not plagerise and how to remain ethical in business?
WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK.
The worst part is, the time that was spent.
But if I didn’t spend that time, I wouldnt be able to reach you in the way I can right now.
So, it all works out.
I’m looking for the good in every situation.
I’m a blank mother fucking canvass.
I may not have some badass fucking business right now, But I want one and that’s my dream, so I’m going to go get it.
I want to live abroard.
I want to buy a mad ass fucking tricked out camper van/home on wheels and travel around Australia with my girl and our dogs and work from my laptop abroad.
I want to stop at beaches, I want to stop in forests, I want to stand in the rain and feel the fucking power and energy of this Earth.
I feel powerful today, I just needed to be reminded… That I’m braver than most.
I’m fucking going for it.
Which makes me alot braver than everyone else who isn’t.
JOIN ME AND LIVE FREE!
Any day of the week I would trade happiness over selling my soul to be rich in a job I hate.
I’m going for both, thank-you very much.
Happy and rich.
JOIN ME and be FREEEE!
What would I rate my 2016:
(Me and my partner from moniqueglasby.com in Hong Kong, July 2016).
What got me through 2016:
– Giving up. (Sometimes you have to give up to release an energy blockage 🙂 ).
– New methods of releasing negative energy/anger e.g. laughing, training, sleep.
My word for 2017:
Fucken FIERCE as fuck.

We think 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts per day.
And approximately 90% of those thoughts are the same as yesterday…
You see our brain wants to help us.
It wants to make our life as easy as possible for us.
So what the brain does to help us and make our life more manageable, is it creates nice neural pathways in our brain that allow us to go into “auto-pilot” mode.
(Auto-pilot mode so we don’t have to think of everything all the time).
This is how habits are created.
You cross your hands a certain way without having to think.
“Yeah, that’s right I put this right arm over that left arm and then I lean them back into my solar plexus area”.
You don’t need to bother consciously thinking about this.
The neural pathway is set and you cross your hands automatically… and most of the time… without noticing.
This is the same for our thoughts.
The neural pathway is set and you just thought something negatively on automatic mode… without noticing it.
This is why you feel good or bad sometimes for no apparent reason.
Nothing good actually came into your life.
You didn’t win on the pokies, you didn’t get a job promotion, you didn’t narrowly miss a parking fine.
And nothing bad actually came into your life.
Your dog didn’t die, your girlfriend didn’t dump you, you didn’t sit on a thumb tack.
But you now feel good or bad because of your subconscious thoughts that have led you that way.
This is why we sometimes have “bad days” for no apparent reason and “good days” for no apparent reason.
The key to achieving more happiness in life and having more good days then bad, is by becoming more aware of A.N.Ts
When you become aware of what you are actually saying to yourself in your mind you begin to take back control over your life.
You retain the steering wheel to your ship.
How do you become aware of what you are thinking?
Well, meditation helps.
Staying in the moment helps.
Or 3 minute interval alarms on your phone help. (What I do haha).
Become more aware and the negative thoughts lose their power.
As you become more aware you see them for what they really are.
Imaginations of the mind.
You are not a fortune teller.
You cannot tell the future.
But you can aim yourself toward a desired future via your conscious thought actions.
What do you choose to think?
If I can make you 1$ richer, would you pay me 20 cents?
When you think of your competition in business what first comes to mind?
Help them??? wait a minute, WTF? Why would you wanna help them?
Most people walking this Earth probably think CRUSH THEM…
And yeah, I get that, I can understand why most people would think that.
But, why crush them when you can help them and they can help you?
It’s an abundant world out there (in my opinion) and there is ALWAYS MORE to go round.
So, why not team up with your competition and share the profits? Because, that’s what the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) did.
You see, the UFC has their own events.
You know the Conor Mcgregor fights, the Ronda Rousey fights, the Daniel Cormier fights etc. etc.
But the UFC also knows that they are not alone and that there are other events and organisations airing their own fights…
Cage Rage, Glory, Elite FC, King of The Cage etc. etc.
So, why does the UFC not simply attempt to crush these organisations by bad mouthing them as inferior, airing shows at the same time as them or by extreme advertising tactics?
Because, the UFC knows that there is more money to be made in joining forces with these smaller organisations, rather than crushing them!
So, how has the UFC joined forces with their competitors? By streaming their competitors events via UFC Fight Pass (a paid membership website owned by the UFC and designed for MMA fans that want to watch major MMA, kickboxing and grappling events from around the world live and on demand).
This creates a win-win situation for both the UFC and their competitors.
The smaller events get increased exposure and the UFC increases their revenue by charging out more memberships to UFC Fight Pass.
I can also imagine that the UFC knows that in helping these smaller competitor organisations, they also know that they will in turn further expand the sport of MMA, which would overall increase the UFCs fan base and profitability.
So, my question to you today is what competitors can you team up with?
How can you break bread with someone else to increase your own and their own profitability?
Options are limitless, the world does not always have to be dog eat dog!
Thank-you for reading.

PS. Please leave me a comment if you know any other businesses that have gone this route with their own competition or if you have any other ideas on how the UFC could further increase their own bottom line.
I’m keen to read what you all have to say!

Is music making you unhappy?
“Kill this bitch, steal this girl, coke, dope, smack and crack”.
My ears love the sound hip hop music gives to me.
But then again, if I was to do some cocaine I’m sure my body would love the feeling of that too…
Now, some hip hop music can be light and uplifting, but some hip hop music can be harsh and angry.
My question today is, can music change your vibration and make you feel different on the inside?
I used to listen to Metallica when I was younger.
And other bands that played angry styled music like KoRn, Slipknot, Disturbed etc. etc.
Did this angry styled music have an effect on me?
I believe it very well did.
As an artist goes deep into a certain state of emotion to create a certain piece of music, I believe that their creation is welded together with their emotions, and when listened to by the audience, it is carried through and effects them.
The emotions of that artist are transmuted into their voice and instruments, creating a musical piece that vibrates either positively or negatively.
Which you, as the audience, then listen to and are influenced by.
Does happy music make you feel happy? Does sad music make you feel sad? Does angry music make you feel angry?
Did you know we are made up of 75% water?
I remember seeing this video on Youtube where this Japanese scientist played different kinds of music to water in test tubes. He then looked at each sample of water’s molecules under a microscope to see if there were any changes.
The results were amazing…
The angry metal music made the water molecules look all chopped and harsh, while the classical music made the molecules look like clean, cut snowflakes.
Which is nuts if you think about it.
Next time you listen to music, talk to yourself, listen to your intuition.
Does this song make me feel anxious? Does this song make me feel sad? Does this song make me feel better?
Don’t choose a song that you think will make you feel better, listen to a song and see if it makes you feel better.
You may just need a song that helps you travel up the emotional scale.
The Emotional Scale:
Going from a fearful state all the way up to a state of joy may be too far a jump – that is why I say go with what feels right.
You may need to go from hopefulness to get to optimism and so on and so on.
Go with what feels right, you will know because you can feel it.
Best of luck and happy listening 🙂
PS. If anyone’s interested, here is the short video on the results of the water experiment I spoke about earlier. The full documentary is quite interesting and can also be found on Youtube.
And here is another video of Abraham teaching about the power of music and vibration. I cannot find the specific video I wanted to share, but this video seems extremely similar in it’s teaching and may even be better:

It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom.
I like getting up early.
When you get up early the world is quiet, the world is calm.
When you get up early, the world is.. your world.
Lately I’ve been getting up around 4:30-5:00 am, starting my morning meditation and then getting straight into my creative work.
I feel more fresh and creative in the morning.
I am definitely a morning person.
If you have a dream, a business or something else you want to work on I highly suggest getting up early one day and working on it to see if you prefer the advantages of the early morning.
The early morning is quiet, distraction free, all your friends and family are asleep and it’s dark outside, leaving you and your creations to intertwine peacefully and privately 🙂 .
You will be amazed at the level of accuracy, creativity and freedom you can emit early in the morning, before you go off to your job, get tired, come home and can’t be fucked to do anything.
Try it one morning and leave me a comment on how it goes.
If you want help waking up early here is a short 10 minute podcast by Steve Pavlina on how to wake up early that was helpful to me when I first started this practice.
Yesterday I was reminded of the importance of staying in the moment.
I think I had been spending a lot of time with the voice in my head.
Too much time.
Today I want you to try staying in the moment.
Feel the seat on your ass, your feet on the floor, the wind brush your face, the touch of your hand to your internet device.
There is no fear or regret when you are in the moment.
It is impossible to feel fear of the future and regret of the past when you are in the moment.
Try to keep the voice in your head quiet and be like a dog.
You don’t see your dog worrying to much do you?
The dog is always present.
The dog lives in the moment and totally drinks in all experience, like most (if not all) other animals.
Meditation can help with this practice.
Try meditation today if you have not done it before.
5 minutes of quiet time listening and feeling the in-and-out flow of your breath with your eyes closed.
If you lose your focus, go back to breath.
Do not get angry if you lose focus, you may have never tried this before, go back to the breath and try to quite your mind.
Know that losing focus, IS a part of meditation and that each time you regain focus, you increase your ability to stay mindful of your thoughts.
There are gyms for lifting weights and there are gyms for strengthening your mind.
This is one of them.
Be quiet and just feel today.
PS. Here is the podcast I listened to yesterday that reminded me the importance of staying present. IT HAS GREAT INCITE IF YOU ARE NEW TO MEDITATION.

PPS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT MEDIATION, “am I doing this right?”, do not hesitate to comment below and I will get back to you, if you are very stuck, we can Skype.
When you spend money and buy something new and your excited about it…
KEEP IT NEAR YOU AND ENJOY THAT EXCITEMENT.
There is nothing wrong with buying new things and keeping them around you.
Recently I bought two decks of daily affirmation cards.
And I was fucken pumped the fuck up that I bought them.
Now, I had the option to leave them in a drawer and get them out once a day to do my affirmation…
But I thought.. fuck that.
I’m gonna leave these babies out in the open of my room, so that every time I see them I feel good that these 2 new products are a part of my life.
If you’re like me and you believe in the Law of Attraction (LOA), leaving nice cues like this around the house can only benefit you.
And even if you don’t believe in the LOA, leaving cues like this around this house will at least make you happy when you see them :).
And there’s nothing wrong with that.
Here are the cards I bought, which can be purchased through Amazon via clicking on the images:
Don’t be a perfectionist.
Perfectionists never get anything done..
Simply because they’re trying to make everything… perfect.
Being a perfectionist will hold you back.
I need to become less of a perfectionist.
People that are the opposite of perfectionists generally have more fun.
What they say is.. good enough.
What they look like is.. good enough.
and the work they put out is generally.. good enough.
It sounds like a fun way to live.
Get your hands dirty and learn and improve along the way.
No one’s paying to see a man in the crowd, they’re paying to see the man in the arena.
So get the fuck up, get dirty and put something out there…
Because there will never be a perfect time.
