Cheers for this Rye , just finished that truly inspirational video. Definetly worth a watch. I particualrly loved his view of 'Brick Walls'.
I don't want to tell you what it's about, he tells you within the first few minutes all you need to know.
What I WILL tell you though, is I basically never take notes on stuff, I did for this and I have several pages. I stayed up far later than I should have last night in order to watch this.
Here's a few of the things he said that truly moved me:
"Be prepared: lus is where preparation meets opportunity."
"It's not about going after your dreams, it's about living life right and if you do, the dreams will come to you!"
"Don't complain; just work harder."
"Don't bail; the best gold is at the bottom of barrels of crap."
"It's very important to know when you're in a pissing match and it's very important to get out of it as soon as possible."
and here's the BIG two:
"When you're doing something wrong and no one is bothering to tell you anymore, that's a bad place to be. It means they gave up on you. Your critics are the ones that are telling you they still love you and care."
I want every single person to remember this when they get constructive criticism (especially on here this happens a lot) and they argue with it and get pissed off that someone is telling them they are doing something wrong, cause what happens, is that just makes people give up on you a lot faster, cause they KNOW you won't listen and improve.
and last but definitely NOT least
"Brick walls are there for a reason: they let us prove
how badly we want things."
That underlined, cause they don't force us to prove anything, as he says, "the brick walls are only there to keep the people that don't want it badly enough out" so if you want it badly enough, that's an opportunity, not something you should be upset over.
That's definitely not all of them, so I urge you to watch it.
I like this line: "Don't complain; just work harder."
; in my opinion a lot of people like to complain that their life is not the way they want to live it, and so they complain about the way it IS but they do the mistake and never start to change their life really/from the scratch, throwing away all the garbage out of it put something new in it. And that's the real
hard work, not to complain, just work harder (to change your life). But if you never start you can complain over and over about your "bad" life.
It's like here on PUA-Forum, if you're complaining all the time that you can't get a girl but you never start to use and to follow the advices or you just like to read the nice episodes of others here on PUA-Forum and you have never started to change your behavior, your point of view or your stile of interacting with women you will never get a girl and probably you will say that the PUA-Tips/Hints never worked.
It's the same with getting the girl you want with getting the life you want: One day you have to start - to change your life, your points of view, your expectations and so on. But the REAL hard work is to keep it going, against all odds, laughters and disadvantages from others.
This is just my experience in giving advices to other people how they will get a better life, and at the beginning everything starts to be hard but it is worth it. (:
