Igniting the innerflame


#21

Good thing I am missing out days, spending less time on the forums makes me get things done more often. :smiley:

Better to-do something with my time.

update upcoming days.

Great posts @Liquidfire

Are you getting benefits from posting other that putting things “on paper” to help with your ADHD?


#23

Could you clarify?

Do you mean in my offline journal?

Yes, it helps me clear my mind first of all, and it gives me ‘hook points’ to work towards. I am working with my own limitations in executive functioning, the paper is helping me structure my thoughts and intentions clearly.

If you mean online?

My intention is to share what I have learned on my own journey.


#24

I enjoying reading about your journey, and I look forward to your future updates.

Could you please review The Alabaster girl once you finish it?

Also, what are your goals in 2019 on the result level? I noticed you had many “process oriented” goals, like a number of books to finish, etc. But what in terms of results that come from processes? Example: which areas do you want to master in 2019 with the books you read? What bodyfat percentage or biceps size or endurance ability are you trying to achieve in the gym? When do you want to finish your education? etc

@AMASH

A very valid point, I have been doing so much inner work the last 6 months, I forgot about concrete physical reality and manifestation of my desires(taking action in the right direction).

Not saying I am not taking action, but I have not quantified more concretely. Thanks for pointing that blindspot out!

If I could make a valid excuse is that, my ADHD mind plays tricks on me. I shall ponder and return with some concreteness for what action to take upcoming Three Months :slight_smile:

Interesting read here. Love how detailed your notes are.

  1. The Millionaire Master Plan: Your Personalized Path to Financial Success by Roger James Hamilton

  3. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson

#28

I’m back.

Primal Seduction + Iron Throne at night
The Spartan + Centurion
Emperor 2.0

Is my playlist currently.

As for other stuff, I have been very busy studying game and understanding it…getting my life and finances in order, and many more things.

Don’t worry I am still here to annoy you to no end again :wink:
:smiley:


#29

So I have still been running

Spartan +PS + EMP

I am thinking of adding the Social sub, most of these subs seem to have internalized. I have gone crazy with the gym from 0 ->3 ->6x times, I feel really motivated.

Girls realm is going good too, no coldappraoches but I have several girls I can date via Tinder at the moment, I have gotten deep in some seduction material both technical and concept based game, and I did further exploration of my innerworld.

I would post pictures of the girls, but I respect their privacy :slight_smile:

There’s 2 areas I can massively improve upon at this moment.

Finances and Academics.


#30

@Liquidfire - loved your journal. Just finished reading it from beginning to end and glad to see that changing your internal world affected and changed your outside one. Here’s to your continuing success! Cheers.


#31

No more ignition needed currently. However I do think it’s good to share my progress and I do have the time.

Since I was away I have

  1. Gained quite a bit of musce, but a little bit of a pouch aswelll currently in doubt wether to finish my ‘bulk’ or start ‘cutting’
  2. Got into a relationship
  3. Have given dating coaching advice to around 15-20 +/- people, on Discord and in real life
  4. As for 3, no I am not a professional pickup coach but I do teach people ‘how to fish’’ and certain basic foundational stuff.
  5. Finising and warrping up my postponement of my Bachelor Thesis, which I have been postponing for 2+/- years.
  6. Currenly Jobless, but my future will for sure entail something in sports coaching or personal trainer. I will start the first foundatonal levels for my accridition around february if I manage to get the funds.
    6.1 This will include recognizable credentials in the Netherlands(Level 1 and 2) but also the first level of international certification by NASM(See --> https://www.nasm.org/)
  7. In the end I would like credentials from the following places
    7.1 https://www.precisionnutrition.com/
    7.2 https://www.mac-nutritionuni.com/
    7.3 https://mennohenselmans.com/online-pt-course/
    7.4 (low prio) https://chekinstitute.com/all-courses/exercise-fitness/
    7.5 (low prio) https://masterclasses.nature.com/ (improve scientific writing and reading ccapabilities, could be usefull IF run something similar to ALan aragon Research Review (or other Reviews by trainers).
    7.6 https://www.issaonline.com/certification/master-trainer-certification/

My stack I will be playing
QT 2 or 3
Kahn 3 or 4
Spartan / Centurion on training days

Might add Rebirth or others to the mix, but im sure this is enough for now.

Warning Random Ramblings + The Rest of this post is not very clear too

I guess these will be irregular because I keep telling myself I want to write in my Journal, but I do not always seem to have the motivation or necessaity to-do so.

Mental Masturbating here, does not help you further all the time. And it seems it’s a problem we all have on here, by ‘overdoing’ all this, typing longass post and making it look like it’s important.

I can look back upon several breakthroughs, but once you see the truth of them, you know all the typing is bullshit, and would not help you towards your goal.

Yet, somehow writing does clear the mind and make goals clear again. Everything that is not in your mind but on paper is easier to digest, easier to mold and adjust, easier to tackle. Hencefort we write, so we won’t get doomed by our own volley of thoughts.

This goes both for theurapeutic reasons as for directive, but are we all aware the amount of bullshit and selfjustification we all write here?

What is the point if not for validation of others, shouldn’t our Journals be personal. Even a noble cause as in, 'they can read struggles of mine, and perhaps I inspire". Albeit, surely a great thought at first hand, does this not imply you want to be seen as better, or as an example?

What does this all boil down too… my best answer is our innate need to be seen, and social acceptance of peers.

But…ask yourself, how does this bring your closer to your goal, gloryfying subliminals as if they are the next best thing since sliced bread.

Rambling off.

Now for our regular update.

I have decided to allocate a timeslow(duh idiot) towards project work, now due to my ADHD (and possible self imposed limiations). I am reserving :clock730:-:clock1230: @Fire @SaintSovereign (you guys did add a big load of emoticons, had to highlight you guys and say I had to laugh).

Update #journals-major-programs #1 9-12-2019

I have set my deadline for 2 days before Christmas, regarding my Bachelor Thesis. This thing is a pain in the ass, and I want to take it out, to provide much needed relief after postponing it for way too long. Its dried up, it’s chunky and it aint pretty anymore.

Gym
Managed to go 6x past week, focussing on going to the gym between 12:30 - 16:00

Nutrition
Pretty crap, but I started my fasting protocol again.

Tracking of Gym / Nutrition
I am currently tracking my workout logs, perhaps I will link to them later (I use Jefit app, and I have a subscription); if not, i would write everything by hand but I can highly recommend that application if you are into lifting.

Further work / Reading

Leisure
I am a big fan of T.V shows, I am currently watching several. I am using Trakt.com to keep track of what will release when. As I can’t watch all.

Currently I can highly recommend “See” and “Mr.Robot”, the storyline and telling are amazing and the latter has had several awards if I am not mistaken.

For some less serious moments, Archer, South Park, Family Guy, The Simpsons, Final Space, and now recently Harey Quinn.

If I settle in a more interesting routine I will also blatently write it out.

Work/Wealth related

I have always wanted to start my own company, and altough I have slightly threaded in the materials for it. There are so many ways, I am quite flabbergasted. I could learn freelance work, such as copywriting or art design, dropshipping etc.

Mainly, I would like to create a sport specific bussiness but the competition is killing, so I’d like to be prepared to be in such a highly competative vain market, where you sell more the bigger you are(this would make me consider lowlevels of anabolics/sarms and that stuff, after I hit my natural limit). Which my pouch currently is telling I am not.

Sorry guys, no big advice in this post…perhaps I have something more usefull to say next time.

Playlist.
With “Supercharger”
The Legacy [2x] in the morning
Centurion [1x]
Spartan [1x]

Without
Khan Stage 3[2x]
