You: “Victor, man, I'm not happy.”
Me: “What are you building?”
Me: “There's your problem. Get to building.”
As Men we build shit. We're builders. We've got to be doing something. If you aren't doing as you were intended what do you think is going to happen to you? What's going to happen to your soul? It's going to blacken and rot as you blacken and rot from the inside out.
You've got to have goals and ambitions that you are actively working towards. If you don't spend your days actively busy, actively building something, then you ain't gonna find happiness.
Idle hands are the devils plaything. It's no wonder so many guys are so depressed and down in the dumps – they aren't building anything.
What do you spend your days doing?
- Working some job you hate?
- Chatting on Facebook?
- Trying to get some little slut to send you pics of her tits?
- Browsing internet forums for stuff unrelated to your industry?
- Reading blogs that do you no good?
- Playing with your dick in the dark in front of the internet?
- Smoking dope and getting high?
Well if you feel like poo-poo stop doing the things that make you feel like poo-poo. Build something. Building something doesn't just mean building a bookshelf. You can build a business.
You can build your body. But you need something to do and something to work towards and for. Your days need to be spent building something and fulfilling your natural urge as a man to build and create (and get paid for it).
If you're good with your hands then build something with your hands. I couldn't build a fucking wooden box so I build other things. Getting a contract signed is my goal. I build deals. I build to get you to sign your name on the line which is dotted. When you see the fruits of your labor it's impossible to be depressed and sad.
When I get that contract signed I drive home doing 90 mph with Motley Crue blaring “Live Wire”. I can't help it. That adrenaline is just pumping in my veins. It's Cocaine without sniffing. When you are handed money for that which you have built and created is the ultimate.
“Cuz I'm alive! A live wire!”
I'm fucking alive man. What about you?
And man, if you ain't alive then you got to get to building something. That's how you turn from the walking dead into a walking Man.
My personal recommendation for happiness and contentment:
1) Spend your days building.
If you're good with your hands you can build a blue-collar business but I don't necessarily mean building anything physical. I mean building your business. I mean actively working, pursuing, acting and doing.
- Building your foundation
- Phone calls, e-mails, and faxes
- Business lunches
- Research and development
- Meetings and Interviews
- Execution of ideas
- Get them to sign the line which is dotted
All that little stuff adds up to a big fat check with your name on it. Sometimes it's as simple as hitting the “enter” key or picking up the phone and making the call. But it always starts with building something.
2) Spend your nights relaxing.
I don't mean going out and chasing pussy every night. That ain't no path to salvation or redemption. That's a lonely life that will turn your red heart black.
I mean have yourself a nice big dinner. Get yourself a good girl for a girlfriend and let her take care of you. Have a nice cleansing shower. Relax and unwind.
Hit the gym if you don't go during the day. Get in bed and check your favorite blog (BOLD & DETERMINED). Fall sound asleep after a day of building. If you ain't tired at night that means you didn't do enough building that day. That can easily be remedied.
“But I have no direction.”
Yes you do my friend. That direction is forward.
Be busy during the day building, and spend your nights doing all the bullshit you want to do.
After you get your building done it doesn't matter how you spend your time.
Get your building done and enjoy your life.
