Ubermensch Day #42: Advice To A 14 Years Old Meditate like a monk:
meditated for 5 minutes. (total accumulated time: 45 minutes). I sit with the proper form – “Seiza” (Seiza - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
). A whirl wind of thoughts continue to swirl around in my mind. I know why the old monk told us to concentrate on breathing now, because breathing helps dissipate the thoughts, bring us back to the moment. I want to keep meditating for five minutes until I become addict to it, then gradually – ever so slowly – move it up in 1 minute incremental. The goal is to meditate 15-30 minutes per day. Exercise like a War God:
Marched to the gym in snowy weather. Here in Canada land, it’s 1°C (34°F), it’s rain … but looks like snow. In snow lingo, it’s “flurry”.
There’s old people, 2 muscular Asian guys, 2 skinny Asian guys, old people, 1 fattie woman who looks like she’s 37 years old but she’s probably 25. The midget black guy is nowhere to be seen, I think the weather is too cold for him.
Today is leg day, did: Squatting, did 5 reps of 160 lbs (72 kg), then 5 reps of 185 lbs (83.9 kgs), then 5 reps of 210 lbs (95 kgs). Then did some calve raises and leg extensions before calling it a day. Listen to self improvement audio (15 minutes) while doing yoga stretches:
Listened to Frank Kern “Core Influence: how to make lots of people do almost anything … but in a cool way”, (1:18 mins out of 1:56 hr). He finishes up with “how to discover your core identity”, then goes on how to figure out the market core identity (their real desire outcome, what life the really want), the final formula is actually caring about the prospect and moving them forward towards that goal. Okay, sounds cool.
I think I figured my core identity, after days of introspection: Drown out the noise of the dysfunction western society (Hello feminism and corporate 9 to 5 jobs), and live in my own happy ideal life style. Be an Ubermensch – super smart, super rich, super awesome (super famous is not in the equation) – yet at the same time, remain humble, enjoy the simple things in life, and give back to certain charities. Also, not to rely on the internet for income 100 percent, because what if the USA and Europe erect a great firewall and kills e-commerce? I always like multiple contingency plans. Read a fascinating book:
Read 25 pages of Principles Of Social Competence by Manhood Academy (Progress: 100/181 pages | Real page count is 284 pages total). The authors discuss about establishing and exercising functional authority as a man (AKA, being a “real man” as a oppose to a limp wrist, passive aggressive nancy boy). Practically speaking, this involves saying no to dysfunctional women behavior, and leading her to create order. Learn a foreign language:
(40 minutes today,Total accumulated time starting at Dec 01 2011: 112 minutes) Learned how to say the months. It’s simply by saying the number + adding “wol” (sounds like wall but with wol)
January (1) = eel wol
Febuary (2) = ee wol
March (3) = sam wol
June (6) = Yoo wol, instead of yook wol.
October (10) = shi-wol, instead of ship wol
Nov (11) = ship eel wol (10 + 1 + wol)
Dec (12) = ship ee wol (10 + 2 + wol)
Year = 년 (yung)
Month = 욀 (wol – but sounds like whoa)
Day = 일 (eel)
The date format in Korea is:
Year – Month – Day
Word of the day: lugubrious \loo-goo-bree-uhs\ mournful, dismal, or gloomy, especially in an affected, exaggerated, or unrelieved manner: lugubrious songs of lost love. Building an online business (Yeah!):
Spent an hour optimizing the product review page. Here’s what I did:
Watch something inspiration:
- Various call to action towards the vendor’s landing page, including text CTA and image CTA
- Used gimp to edit the photos and incoporate CTAs into it “Click here to visit their official website”, “Click here to read a sample of their book” etc
- Using a specialized search syntax, scouted for objectived reviews of the product posted by people on various forums, and used that as proof that that the product works. (“neutral review”). Used that and put it into the review page.
- Signed up at my competitor’s website email list, and reverse engineer her email campaign. How often does she send out emails? How is she profiting from the emails? What is her subject head line? Where does she place her call to action in the email body? What kind of tips does she give? I’m going to absolutely nothing but sit back and emulate her campaign.
Watched 2 episode of Serial Experiments Lain (8/13 episodes). This anime reminds me of the movie, “Fight Club”. The main character, Lain, experience some sort of extreme cognitive dissonance that she creates a doppler ganger. Makes sense? Like Jack in Fight Club imagining Tyler Durden. The Anime also deals with the blurred line between online reality and offline reality, and how it’s slowly merging into one. Daily Conclusion – what Ubermensch thinks:

When I was 14, I really wished I had a big brother – or a model figure – to tell me this.
Advice on gaining confidence and getting a girlfriend
The gym is the breeding ground for confidence. When you can squat 2 times your body weight, or bench press 1.5 times your body weight, you will feel an overwhelming sense of confidence.
Why? You – intuitively – understand that punch a hole into someone’s skull should you get into a fight. Once you can stand up for yourself, your fear of failure, fear of getting ridicule by others, will dissipate like snow during a summer heat wave.
You will go through a phase of “Mother ♥♥♥♥er, you think I give a ♥♥♥♥ what you think? Don’t make me ♥♥♥♥♥ smack you”. After a while, you will become more humble. But you first will go through the “I’m better then you” phase. That’s just the nature of things.
By hitting the gym, you will build chisel muscles that will get the “girls” wet. Their body will tingle, and your reputation as the “hunk” around school was circulate. Girls will line up and jockey for position to date you. When you walk around school, they will give you a flirty gaze while twirling their hair.
By having a big, chisel body packed with muscles and a relax confident attitude, having a girlfriend – or mutiple girlfriends. I recommend 2 – shouldn’t be a problem. The first step is work on yourself, the girls will follow.
I recommend you do a 5/3/1 routine (Strength Standards
) and eat big. Eat lots of carb and protein. Bulk up. Be big, be alpha.
It goes back to the quote “Do the thing (gym) ,and get the power (girls). Not get the power (girs) then do the thing (gym)” Advice on making a pile of money
You don’t get rich working for other people . You need to start a business that serves a market need, then learn how to systemize your business, so you can outsource or automate every single part of the operation.
The first book I recommend you to read is “Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money” by Robert T. Kiyosaki because it’s an easy read. Next, read “The Narrow Road: A Brief Guide to the Getting of Money” by Felix Dennis
Understand the only way to become truely rich is owning a business, and putting your money into various investment vechicles. You’re making about $800 a month, that’s great. Put $100 of it every month into a saving account and don’t touch it. This should be a habit for life. Advice on having fun and living a cool life
Do what you enjoy in life. This will eventually come to you naturally once you progress in your jouney towards self improvement. I honestly don’t know what you define as fun, but I suspect it’s making a pile of money and having sex with your girlfriend. Right on.
- Go the gym
- Eat alot
- Watch TV 1 hour or less per day
- Read 1 chapter per day
- Focus on building a business
- Have sex with your girlfriend(s) (or whenever you obtain one)
Good luck and don’t give up, have patience young one.
Go kick some ass,
