Ho ho ho!
Ol' St. Vic here with some updates and a Christmas podcast episode.
I've spent the last 6 months in America.
As a sacrifice.
I don't particularly enjoy living in America if we are going to be honest.
Because I don't particularly enjoy it, I get a lot of work done when I visit.
In fact, I get more work done in 6 months in America than I do in many years abroad.
Actually, I owe my entire blogging career to a 6 month stretch back in 2012.
It is this act of sacrifice – which means doing something I don't want to do now so that I can get something better later – that allows me to continue building this great business of Bold and Determined.
I absolutely have to have intense periods of hard work without outside distractions.
In the past I had no name for this intense method of sacrifice, preparation, and work.
Now, I have named it Monk Mode.
I even grew the long beard of a mystic to make the name match.
The period of “Mystical Vic” is ending and I am entering into a new phase and a new focus.
But I am always going to use the principles I discovered in Monk Mode to G.S.D. (Get Shit Done).
MONK MODE: The Incredible way I get things done and create happiness via wealth drops on January 14.
In a one month period I can do the amount of work I would normally do in a year.
In a 6 month period I can do many years worth of work.
How? Monk Mode.
Then what? I sail off into the sunset and find a new adventure.
Message #2 – If you are trying to get shredded like Ol' St. Vic, your new bible is coming out on January 1st.
Message #3 – The Bold and Determined Podcast is going back to one day per week on Thursday. As I embody the strong silent type, to me, talking too much is a sin.
Message #4 – If you want to start a blog in the new year, rest assured that Badnet.com is open and is ready to start your blog for you.
You will want to get a head-start on competition if you wish to be a successful blog artist.
Message #5 – If you want to buy Ol St. Vic a Christmas steak you can do so here: paypal.me/vpride
Here is the B&D Christmas Podcast…
The streaming audio is available above.
If you prefer to listen to this podcast in a different format here are the direct links:
Wolf asks… (6:42)
What is the true meaning of Christmas? Of course, nowadays Christmas is commercialized, everyone wants to sell their sweet stuff, everybody is so stressed. I think Christmas is the only time in the year when many families can get together. What do you think about people saying “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”? In my mind it is just another political correct term. I wish you and everyone else on this fantastic blog a Merry Christmas!
Drew asks… (8:55)
Victor, I do have to thank you for this podcast. Even though I do not know you or the other listeners, I feel like we are all connected somehow. I am in my early 20s and everyone my age has completely lost touch with reality. So thank you for providing a platform for young guys like me trying to find their way.
I would also like to give a 10/10 review regarding RED GROWTH and RED PCT 2.0. I am currently visiting friends and family for the holidays and I have gotten questions such as “Are you on steroids?” “What happened to you? I didn’t even recognize you.”
Joseph asks… (10:07)
My life has significantly improved recently. I have been eating a carnivore diet for a year, which cured all my health issues, including those that my doctors said couldn’t be cured. I quit porn and masturbation, and fixed my dead libido and erectile dysfunction. I fixed my embarrassingly low testosterone levels with an intelligent TRT program. I built a body through consistent and disciplined exercise. And I found mental peace and clarity by eliminating all of my social media accounts and getting rid of my smartphone.
As someone on a similar path as myself. what are some other lifestyle changes you’ve found that have this same life-changing power – whether it’s things you eliminate – like plant foods, porn, or social media – or things you add, like exercise?
Bill asks… (12:14)
Why do you think Humans began Drinking Alcohol, Drinking Coffee and Smoking Tobacco originally?
Sugar is a drug asks… (14:49)
Where did the lie that carbs are necessary for human health originate from? Who started this lie and how did it spread?
Josh asks… (17:39)
I read something interesting about how an animal diet allowed Genghis Khan to build his empire. Author Jack Weatherford details how their diet consisted of horseblood, cheese, milk paste, curds, and meat, which gave them incredible endurance, speed, and strength compared to the carb-addicted people they conquered:
“Compared to the Jurched soldiers, the Mongols were much healthier and stronger. The Mongols consumed a steady diet of meat, milk, yogurt, and other dairy products, and they fought men who lived on gruel made from various grains. The grain diet of the peasant warriors stunted their bones, rotted their teeth, and left them weak and prone to disease. In contrast, the poorest Mongol soldier ate mostly protein, thereby giving him strong teeth and bones. Unlike the Jurched soldiers, who were dependent on a heavy carbohydrate diet, the Mongols could more easily go a day or two without food.”
Lisa asks… (20:10)
I am a 26 year old woman and I want to have kids. Where can a woman find a good husband to have strong kids/family in your opinion? I date and it usually comes out that many males are just playing video games…don't even really want to start working on the next generation. One kid, maybe two and even then they freak out at the work it takes to raise kids. Where would you recommend a family oriented female look?
Orestes asks… (23:26)
You said being healthy and happy is a natural state for human and natural laws is good for us. But every life ends with death (pain). What do you think about David Benatar antinatalism movement, his statements like:
“It is curious that while good people go to great lengths to spare their children from suffering, few of them seem to notice that the one (and only) guaranteed way to prevent all the suffering of their children is not to bring those children into existence in the first place.”
Mustafa asks… (24:23)
I’ve been eating carbs only before going to bed and I only ate one meal in the afternoon consisted of 4 eggs and steak. I got back my mental. I have two questions and I hope you mention them in your next podcast. First, how to find the balance between natural life and modern life? Like what advantages we can take from this modern life other than internet….
Steve asks… (27:08)
What’s your thoughts on the anabolic diet which is eating strictly meats and fats everyday for 6 days straight and then on the 7 day you switch to a low fat low protein high carb day for insulin spike to increase growth hormone release then switch back to meat and fats.
Jesus Sotelo asks… (29:49)
Hey Vic what is you're opinion on building an online business only through podcast, I feel I communicate better through spoken word over blogging I also know myself and I am more consistent with podcasts over blogging.
Michael asks… (30:45)
For those of us who don't want drugs or supplements, is it better for us to be lean but skinny, or big with some body fat? What is better for health, longevity, energy, and life?
Ben Zeelander asks… (31:43)
Hi Vic. Is it better to start over with a website if you realize there are quite a lot of beginner mistakes in it. Also if your readership is not growing and start a new blog. Doing it pro from the get-go? Or would you totally revise the blog and revise evert little word and sentence?
Sebas asks… (32:24)
Hello, Vic. We already know that pornography ruins our minds. But, I’ve started to think that horror films and violent movies have similar ill effects. What do you think?
Tyler asks… (33:20)
Hey Vic, I want to move out to a cabin to hunt and fish but think the isolation will drive me crazy. Any suggestions how I can live a more natural life? I’m a carnivore and a badass but my spirit is undeveloped. Is it too crowded to grow spiritually in the city?
VM asks… (34:39)
You said you want to live in the mountains, in your vlog on your YouTube channel, if you would stay in America, why don’t you get a van, put a bed in there, and travel America visiting all the nice nature areas?
MoneyStudy asks… (35:41)
If you had kids, how would you show them the best of the world while preventing them from becoming spoiled and entitled?
Joseph asks… (36:37)
What are your views on gambling and playing poker?
Steve asks… (37:21)
Vic, What are your thoughts on combining a new YouTube channel with a blog? In other words, each article you write you would have a video version on the topic as well or vice versa. I currently have a very small YouTube channel that I just started. I like to write as well as produce video content.
Bill asks… (38:10)
What are your vices? What are your virtues?
Spencer asks… (39:05)
Hey Vic, love your work, I have an important question, I’m very interested in red growth but I am currently an NCAA college athlete, can I take this without popping on the drug tests that have become very strict in recent years? Not sure if you’ve dealt with this before but any info would be awesome.
Until next time.
