“I believe that everyone has tremendous ability to evolve. There is opportunity and untapped potential in every person, every event, and everything that exists.” – Owen Cook
There is nothing more amazing than moments when true willpower shine through the bullshit of fear, scarcity, false limitations, and mental noise. Not the willpower of the small, petty part of yourself that wants something to feel bigger and more secure, but the willpower that comes from the “higher” part of yourself — that key intersection when your inner and outer journeys collide. – Owen Cook
One of the ideas that’s been addressed about modern society is that boys are never taught how to be men. There are no rituals or responsibilities that SHIFT our child-like thinking from “How does this make me feel right now?” to “Am I living my values?” or “Is this (or the daily habits that I’m engaged in) moving myself closer or farther away from what I want out of life?”
Stop processing things in terms of the immediacy of how it’s making you feel, and rewire your emotions to respond to whether or not you’re living your values and moving closer to your overall vision for yourself.
Do this, and do it continually, and your life will expand proactively instead of stagnate in a reactive haze like most of your friends. – Owen Cook (RSD Tyler Durden)
