In the renowned book 'Think and grow rich' by Napoleon Hill (1937) there is a discussion about desire (i.e your dream in life) and how to fully commit (and hence guarantee yourself your desire) you have to 'destroy your means of escape'. The example given is that an army had their ships burnt on arrival so that they would not escape and live unless they won the war (all in). Maybe it's ignorance or naivety but I feel as though if I had less I would be more aggressive at finding/obtaining my desires. I've worked hard for my career, I make wicked money, wicked team to work with, and great work-life balance... But is this enough to be happy and satisfied in the years to come? I imagine a lot of people have this confliction... what are your thoughts on the security of comfort versus the risk of committing to desire?

    Yeah, very good question. I think it is a matter of choice. If we debate the "reasonability" of both arguments, we will argue endlessly as there are really two kind of people. Employee mind and Free mind. Employee mind doesn't just mean that you have a job and a payroll and free mind doesn't mean that you are self-employed. Employee mind is about being a slave of your sensual desires, like comfort, love, sex, play, etc. With this mind, the purpose of money is provide these and that's it. Free mind on the other hand work for a transcendent desire, a desire to make a greater expression of yourself onto reality, onto existence. This transcendent desire through which a mortal being experiences something divine in human existence, this desire requires sacrifice of base comforts and pleasure. Fasting that is now being scientifically proven method of restoring physical and mental health, has been an important element of all developmental programs of humanity, actually works as a training to tame the animal self comfort loving self. Human self is an idea-based self, in which for a new ideal expression, the comfortable self, compliant self, risk-averse self is sacrificed. WDYT?

UPDATE: thanks for all these replies, I no longer have a problem with low energy, I honestly don't even know what helped me, maybe I started to be more strict with waking up and going to sleep, every day at the same time, and the morning walks, but I'm still open to hear, what helped you guys maximize your energy hey guys, so I need some help and thought this will be a great place to ask it, I have low energy, and I just don't understand why, because logically it feels like I do everything right: - I have 8-9 hours of sleep every day - I go to the gym 3x a week for one hour - I go cycling in nature for 30 minutes every day - I try to eat healthy (no seed oil, sugars, or processed food) - my room has a lot of windows, so I got sunlight in the morning - I don't use any electronics 1 hour before bed and have blue light blockers here is what my day looks like: I wake up at 7 am, sit down in front of my computer work till 12, then I eat my first meal, (so I intermittent fast 16:8) after it I go back and work. at 2 pm I go to the gym, at 3 pm I go cycling and after it, I usually do some work outside for an hour, then I'm in front of my computer till 9 pm, I turn it off and go to sleep at 10 pm I'm a noob when it comes to high performance and energy optimization, but if anyone has solved this problem, and has some expertise in this field, I would love to hear your advice these are my ideas on why I have low energy: - I spend too much time in front of my computer - I only eat 2 meals a day (btw I usually feel this tiredness afternoon) - maybe not enough water? - lack of supplements? - my diet is not good enough, thinking of changing to a carnivore fruit diet also, I don't drink coffee only some green tea sometimes and I meditate, journal, and read before bed, Idk if this helps

    Try this as your first meal for a breakfast around 8-9 and then eat whatever you want that is healthy around 2 or 3 pm. Healthy snack in the evening optionally. See how that works for you. https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/green-smoothie-breakfast-for-energy-movement-and-clarity?p=274e5aa2

    @C Papas aka "what are you willing to give up.."

A while ago, I felt very tired and fatigued all the time and didn't feel like doing very much throughout the day (even after sleeping 8 hours). I started to research diets, vitamins, and protocols and pretty much read through every popular guru and resource I could find on the subject. After pouring in 1000s of hours of research and experimentation, I concluded a simple list of ingredients that everyone should put in their body first thing in the morning. These ingredients: ✅ Start your metabolism ✅ Detox and cleanse your gut ✅ Supercharge the good bacteria ✅ Create brain food and remove fog ✅ Revitalize all the endocrines and organs ✅ Produce very regular and satisfying bowl movement ✅ Brings an unbelievable amount of energy to sustain throughout the day Based on that, I made up a smoothie that I do every morning that is delicious and fulfilling and fire up the body engine. (Some days I slip and I don't it, and I feel the difference). It seems selfish to keep this little innovation to myself. So sharing with my friends here so that everyone can have fantastic days as I do. Enjoy. And if there is something else I should definitely add to it, let me know. https://youtu.be/pb-PhHpBa0E

    @Benedek Santa this will help with energy. Change your breakfast to this for a week and see the difference.

I am a beginner. I am entering a new game about which I know nothing. I do not yet know how to move in this game. I see many other people playing in this game now. This game has gone on for many years prior to my arrival. I am a new recruit arriving here for the first time. I see value to me in learning to navigate in this domain. There is much for me to learn: The basic terminology The basic rules The basic moves of action The basic strategies While I am learning these things, I may feel various negative reactions: Overwhelmed at how much there is to learn Insecure that I do not know what to do Inadequate that I lack the capacity to do this Frustrated and discouraged that my progress is so slow Angry that I have been given insufficient guidance Anxious that I will never perform up to the expectations on which my career depends Embarrassed that everyone could see my mistakes But these moods are part of being a beginner. It does not serve my goal and ambition to dwell in them. Instead, If I make a mistake, I will ask what lesson does this teach. If I make a discovery, I will celebrate my aha! Moment. If I feel alone, I will remember that I have many friends ready to help. If I am stuck, I will ask for help from my teachers. Over time, I will make fewer mistakes. I will gain confidence in my abilities. I will need less guidance from my teachers and friends. I will gain familiarity with the game. I will be able to have intelligent conversations with others in the game. I will not cause breakdowns for promises that I lack the competence to keep. I have an ambition to become competent, perhaps even proficient or expert in this game. But for now, I am a beginner. – By Peter J. Denning, Distinguished Professor, US Naval Academy

    @Matthew Hartman Smart man! Make sure to give Peter Denning credit somewhere and send me the link to the music. I will make sure he knows it. 👏👏👏

If yes, read on... I wrote something a while ago about creating the context of an innovator and a billionaire. I think you all would really enjoy this article/podcast. What Is Your Billion Dollars Context? An excerpt from the article/podcast:  "Your power is directly proportional to the size of the context available to you. It is perfectly well to operate with all your focus within your local environment, but your power is then limited to the local environment, and when the larger context changes, you find yourself unaware, unprepared, and at the mercy of the change that is happening in the larger context. If you want your power to grow, you have to be willing to see a context that is larger than your specific needs at this moment. Seeing that context, seeing the possibility of that context, and creating for yourself a new context gives you a brand new source of power. In the times that are coming, we will have to re-generate many new contexts for ourselves..." As you read or listen to this, share it with me and all of us here; 1. What are you getting out of this? 2. What new ideas and perspectives are opening up for you? and 3. What is your billion dollars context?

    I'd ask, what's next for you? And what do you perceive to be in your way, your greatest challenge in getting there?

    @Paul Masters Thank you. I watched what you said carefully. I am inspired by your passion and enthusiasm for helping others. Would love to get to know you better.

Before starting Amazon, Jeff Bezos drew this idea out on a napkin about how to grow Amazon community. This became the operating system behind everything that they do, even their AWS business. Not that secret I suppose, but definitely worth staring at for a bit.

Yesterday @Paul Masters taught me that to boost a LinkedIn profile I need to commit to 30 days of posting. Now it's day two and in this thread I'll reflect my progress. Any support is appreciated!

    @Derek Strike thank you for being so courageous and putting yourself out on the field. I love it. I am curious what did you learn from this experiment?

I stopped having a morning routine and I get straight into work, and rather have an evening routine, that helps me reflect on the day, and fall asleep edit: Alex Hormozzi, just made a video about this

    Well, this IS your new morning routine -- get straight to work. It will work for a while. When the body is still young it will play along. It is perfectly fine to be there where you are. Makes sense. When the breakdowns begin to show up, it would be time to reconsider this strategy. Good luck!

    @Benedek Santa Yes. Very good. More important thing is that you are thinking and you are inviting others to think and not just following blindly and religiously something that some guru has said. We are living in an era of extreme personalization which honors every human's unique orientations and expression. Although I have a 2 hours morning routine, your post has made me think to rethink it. I get up at 7 am pacific and lead a meditation group for 10 minutes. I then drink some hot water, and lead a 30 min physical intensive training session till 8 am (most Kungfu, and qigong based, both open to anyone by the way). Then I drink 2 glasses of water with a concoction of fiber and internal cleanser. I feed and briefly play with my cat, say good morning and checkin with my roommate. I then shower and listen to some specific music and poems by 8:45. I then make a breakfast (often skip it) and meet with my team at 9 am every weekday. I have a short night routine which is walk and 10 min meditation group. Listening to you I am thinking what can I cut from my routine. For that thank you.
