I say you just do it!
Even if your a schizophrenic like me. And hear voices. And hear the neighbors talking out loud, and sometimes it seems like their talking about your thoughts.
I drank 9 beers yesterday starting at 9 o’clock in the morning. So I figured that it would be good to get out for a walk. Sometimes I think if I weren’t drinking and smoking maybe I wouldn’t hear voices. Or maybe the voices would be better to me.
I’m going to try and sober up for a while. At least until I get paid again. I’ve got a week to go, so that’s a good while for me to dry up.
And I can write about being sober.
And walking, or running.
But an hour around the sidewalk loop in my neighborhood is a good 2.5 miles. And I walk it fast so I probably did it in under an hour. But it takes roughly an hour to do that.
And I brought my son along with me because my wife and daughter were out at a party and I was watching him. He sat in his chair for about an hour after my wife left, and watched Youtube videos on monster trucks during that time.
I was busy reading Tim Ferriss’s “Tools Of Titans”. I just started it.
But after the walk we ate yogurt and it was time to put my son down for a nap. He didn’t go quietly. He calmed down quickly though. I sat and did some thinking for a while and had a couple cigarettes, and now I’m busy writing.
So far the day has been great. I love walking. It’s purifying. At some point, eventually I’m going to make the transition into running, and start doing crunches 6 days a week and see if I can get a six pack. Reading the section on health in “Tools of Titans” makes me want to get into better shape, and be more mindful of what I’m putting into my body. There’s a lot of talk about fasting and that’s something I’m pretty used to. Not eating much.
Don’t get me wrong, I can eat, but sometimes I go on very little for whatever reason. I have a little on my midsection to keep me going on those lean times. I almost want to get fat so I have the reserves if I don’t have the money for food.
Really if I were better at saving my money I wouldn’t have to worry about going without food because I would have plenty to eat whatever I want whenever I want.
But I drink and smoke too much and spend more than I make. It’s really pretty screwy. But I do things with my time during those periods of excess that lead me to believe I’m not wasting anything.
I would very much like to get rich. And that way if I wanted to drink and smoke I could do so guilt free. It pisses me off a little bit when I don’t win the Mega Millions or the Powerball. I played 4 dollars for last nights drawing and I didn’t win. It pisses me off.
There has got to be an effective way to use that anger, or transform it into something positive that I can use.
I like blogging and I think you could blog about whatever you want and get people to like it. So I could do that. My son and I had a great time walking today.
We were going to stop by the play ground but my son said he didn’t want to swing right then. He said he wanted yogurt.
But we did go two loops. Instead of the one we do when my wife and daughter go. They can’t last for two.
And my son wanted to get out upon finishing the first loop, but I just kept on going and he sat quietly and enjoyed the ride. I was talking to him for some of it too. My grandmother asked me one time when he was just born if I talked to him. That really wasn’t one thing I was particularly good at. I’m good at being quiet. It did make me think I should make a good effort to talk to him though. Just another good thing I got from my grandmother who I am blessed to still have in my life. For that, and for many other things I am very grateful.
I’m grateful for everything I have, good and bad or both. So when I was hearing the voices of the neighborhood out on the walk, sometimes getting scary, I just keep on walking and find the courage to be out. It’s so worth it. Better than being trapped in the house by fear of the voices.
And I think it’s high time I quit drinking. I’ve done enough of it. I’ll have water and let my body recover from all the abuse. And help the process by walking and maybe even running. I really need to tackle smoking, but one thing at a time.
I can tell you all about my sobriety when you check back on this blog. Keep reading, you might find something you like. Subscribe to my list and I’ll send you primo content you can’t get anywhere else on the web. I’m thinking write ups and poetry to help you improve and succeed and be inspired. I really am going to pack value into the mail you get from me. So it’s going to be worth it for you to join my email list. You can do so now, by putting your name and email address into the sidebar at the top of this page. Take a minute and do this now.
You of course, don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. But getting stuff from me is an option for you, and I would love to serve you if you ever have the need. If you ever need motivation that you can do it, or you want to be inspired, or you just want to be entertained, then I’m your man. And I can do a lot more than just motivate, inspire, and entertain you. You might even change you life because of what you learn from me.
You might become a blogger and make 6 figures a year on the internet, working minimal hours and spending more time traveling and raising your family. Just like I plan to.
In fact, I plan to make my first million dollars off this blog. Unless I win the lottery first, that’s how I plan on getting the money. Writing a blog, and selling products to the people on my list. I’m not in a position to even offer a product right now, but it’s in the works, and I’m really working on it.
Maybe it’s a mistake to try and blog everyday for 90 days, but if it is, that’s a mistake I’m making. And I’m betting my bottom dollar that I’m going to grow because of it. And I’m also betting that this process is going to get me more traffic.
It’s really taking me a long time to even get close to making my first dollar off of this website, and it’s not because I’m not blogging. I need to get a freebie for people who join my list and I think it’s going to be my first ebook “Take Action and Improve!”. I’ve got to get busy editing it. I had a friend read it and he wrote all over it. So I’m going to get to it, and get busy editing after I finish this post. I will probably be working until I go to bed at 10pm. That’s my bedtime. Early to bed early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise, or so Benjamin Franklin said. So I do the thing and I have the power. And so can anyone else.
If you want to walk around your neighborhood for an hour for your health, you can do it, assuming you have legs that work. I know it’s not the case for everyone, but I would say that some people may need a push to get out there an succeed. If your one of those people I’m hear for you to tell you that I hear voices and I do my thing everyday and am not bothered. When I stop smoking I’m sure I’m going to suffer, but it will probably be worth it. I’ll be more on my way to being wealthy. I’ll be on my way to saving money instead of spending more than I make. I still am not looking forward to it.
I didn’t smoke on my walk though. I waited until I got back.
Really I’m addicted and it will be nothing short of a miracle if I can stop it. And LIVE.
But I think long walks or long runs will help. It may just be a matter of choice every moment of the day. I’m going to find out.
But just like this blog post, I want to crank out my life at high speed. Get it done. Do the thing. There will be more time for other things. Like editing my ebook. And writing another one. A good one. Worth 25 or 30 dollars each. Maybe I can look into professional publishing as well and maybe get hard copies of my book sold all over the world.
Considering I don’t even have a marketable book at this point, I’m a ways off, but I know I can do it, and I’m going to keep working until I get what I want.
As it can be with anyone.
Just keep working on it. Something that you can control. Don’t spend your entire life working on the lottery alone. I did that for 5 years and I just have had enough. I need other things too that are going to support me and my family. Working a job really helps even if it’s at a low hourly rate. That’s what they are paying me, because that’s what I’m worth to society at this occupation. And I’m fine with that. It doesn’t mean I’m not going to find other ways to make MORE MONEY.
So I’m working my tail off on this blog, trying to write it everyday, and get the thing done. Treat it like I AM being paid to do it. Get the job done so the business can run smoothly. That’s what I do at my job and I figure it could work on my own website as well. It works at work, so why not apply it to my other work.
And if you want to blog about what you do, then blog about what you do. Your only a few steps and a few dollars away from starting your own blog. You can do it! Anyone can do it! You may not be good at it, but your going to grow. And if you are good at it, you might be able to make a couple dollars. You might be able to a make a million. And then once you’ve earned your first million, don’t you think it will be a lot easier to make the next 14? I just want to get to the first million mark because at that point I would feel like I’ve arrived. I’m where I want to be. I don’t have to work hourly anymore. I’m free. My family and I can travel. We can spend more time together. I could make some more friends and travel places to meet them. I would go to events and meet other bloggers who are also earning money and learn from them and become better. I would add value to the mastermind of people earning money from blogging and selling e books. It’s really a fantastic vision. And to live the lifestyle of a multimillionaire. That would be amazing. Complete freedom. Live where you want to live, travel where you want to travel, do the work you love doing and get paid fantastically to do it. Is it all a dream?
Or could it come true?
You tell me what you think in the comments, and if your feeling a little bold, share your own vision and dream for what you could do blogging or otherwise.
Thanks for reading, I really appreciate you,
