Good Morning, Let’s Go.
Life is a ruthless bitch. She will take from you until you are ass deep in debt. This bitch will cut you and then yell at you for bleeding on her rug. Shit, if you’re not careful she’ll cut you cuz you bled on her rug. She is a boss ass bitch and she isn’t going to partner up with some lazy piece of shit who don’t know what they want. She isn’t yours to rule. She makes your dreams come true when you commit to her. But she ain’t no slut. Shit, she doesn’t give it out for nothing. She wants a partner. She wants someone with a plan and a vision. This cutthroat bitch isn’t playing. If you come at her like she is, you look the fool. Your actions have consequences and she has a long memory. Don’t play with her. Don’t waste her time. She is going places, get on her level. Don’t act like she is common place or you might lose her. Boss up and take this lady out.

Good Morning, let’s go.
Most of us have our own personal mental traps. Our own self-made hamster wheel. I had the very unpleasant experience of confronting mine this weekend and will do so for the rest of the week.
We do things in hope they will make our life better. But that is not always the case. Imagine for a moment, there’s a book that claims to help you get rich. You buy it, shit you feel accomplished. You made progress. You took the first step. Progress baby, then you finished the first chapter. You are on a roll. You either, did or most likely didn’t do what the book prescribed in or at the end of the first chapter. You might have said I will go back when I am done reading the book to apply it. The next day you plan to read another chapter. Life and your mental energy get in the way. Eight weeks later, surprise, surprise, surprise, you don’t ever pick that bitch up again. Not until you need to find a place for it on your bookshelf. Not too long after that, you come across a new book with the same promise. You buy it with the same intention and the hamster wheel goes on.
This doesn’t just happen with books, of course. There are online courses, gym memberships, gear, journals, cookware, and clothing. All of these fresh starts, restarts, and feelings of accomplishments keep you at the beginning.
We have choices to change. The first is actually to see it through. Finish what you start. The second is to stop starting. The third is to actually put it on a list of things you will actually do. Rank all the things you want to do in order of priority and passion; shit you want to do then do them. Fourth you can quit. Take all that shit you bought and get rid of it. Clear your plate. No shame in cleaning up.
We are all human and get interested in things. We will always try something new. What creates a mental trap isn’t the new thing, it is the expectation that it will change us for the better. We want something or someone else to do the work for us. Information no matter how good is worthless in the hands of someone who will not use it, just like a gym membership.
We have choices. We can start again. We can continue. We can finish. We can quit. Sometimes the hardest thing to do in life is acknowledging we started down the wrong path. The steps after that don’t get easier, but lead somewhere. We just need to take time away from our life to see it. A hamster wheel doesn’t go anywhere, just like most of our plans.

Good Morning, Let’s jump in.
The rest of the day is yours. It is yours to react to. It is yours to act on. You are free to interact with life.
Don’t fucking make an excuse as to why you cannot do shit you want. The world doesn’t give two shits about your reasons for not doing something.
The world really doesn’t care if you hide in a cave, but I do. The excuses we make hurt us in the long run. Most of us do not know how to act without being given permission. We are insecure in our ability to take our lives in our own hands.
Most people need the confidence of a title to take any kind of action. They hide behind a job to do something with their lives. They don’t realize they are free to do damn near anything they want. They do not think or act for themselves, but are willing to do so on behalf of a company. They do not believe they can kick ass and take names just by being. Don’t be like most people. Life is improv, act like it.
The world doesn’t care if you hide in a cave, but it will give two shits if you make it your playground.
The confidence to initiate a life you want is yours for the taking.
