There’s a special something that you see in a very select few men…
They just seem to CRUSH IT with everything they do. Whether it’s with money, fitness, or women, they seem to walk through life with complete and absolute ease.
They made a million bucks? Great, no sweat. They’re in absolutely phenomenal shape? Cool, that’s how it should be. They flirt with sexy models all the time, and date the most beautiful women out there? Of course, it happens all the time.
The reason why some people are so successful, and others AREN’T, is because the top 1% understands a very powerful secret that when applied to your life will act as ROCKET FUEL to level up your life, and have you wondering why you never realized what was possible before.
Have you ever seen the movie “Meet Joe Black” with Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins? It’s about an old businessman who meets “death” personified in a human body, and they end up making a deal. Throughout the whole movie, Death (played by Brad Pitt) walks through life with complete effortlessness and ease, moving from one opportunity to the next.
There’s some guys out there who just seem to “get it,” like this. No matter how much shit gets thrown at them, and no matter how often others seem to drag them down, they just can’t stop succeeding in all areas of life…no matter how hard they try.
These larger than life characters aren’t any better than you. In fact, they’ve probably got a ton of flaws—I know that I certainly do. Yet what these people understand, that you don’t, is the key to any and all success…and once you wrap your head around it you’ll kick yourself for not seeing it before.
As ridiculous as this sounds, the secret is to simply get out of your own way and embrace success. If you want to level up your life, you don’t need fancy tricks, crazy new methods, or other weird things like that…you just need to get out of your way and welcome success into your life.
In Eastern philosophy, there’s a concept known as taking the “path of least resistance,” which I believe is paramount to success. In fact, I know of no faster way to level up your life than to take the path of least resistance—yet this is something that we all struggle with.
Let me ask you a question right now: do you know what you must do to succeed? I guarantee that you do, but for some reason you’re not doing it. Why do you think that is? Whether it’s “going to the gym,” or “asking that girl out,” you know what it is that you must do, yet you’re not doing it. Why?
You’re getting in your own way. You’re coming up with 10,001 different reasons why you shouldn’t do something, when in reality you know that they’re all just giant lies. You need to learn how to get out of your own way, and simply do what must be done.
This is known as taking the path of least resistance in Zen Buddhism, and is sometimes colloquially called “getting out of your own way.” It’s the idea that as human beings we create so many damn obstacles that don’t need to be there…and if we just let go and learn to be present, we will succeed in more ways than we know.
One of the biggest reasons that men can’t level up their life is that they’re telling themselves some story about their past, or about who they were. People think that their past determines their future, so they put up all sorts of obstacles and get in their own way, which prevents their success.
You’ve always been overweight? That’s what you identify with, and your subconscious mind will come up with all sorts of excuses to stop you from losing weight and melting off the pounds. You’ve always been poor? Your mind will find all sorts of obstacles to put in your way, preventing you from making fat stacks of cash.
The top 1% understands that there are no limits. Everything you think you know is a lie. Everything that you think is possible is only a fraction of what’s actually possible, and if you just stopped telling yourself that damn story about how you’re a failure, everything would change.
Yet until you experience ego death, this realization will fall upon death ears. You’ll identify with who you used to be, and unconsciously create a series of events to perpetuate your victimhood and keep you trapped in the cycle of negative results that you’ve been in for so long.
If you want to level up your life—if you want to find success in all areas of life, beyond your wildest dreams, you must understand one concept. You are the one and only reason that you’re not successful. It’s not your parents, it’s not your friends, it’s not your circumstances…it’s you.
Just decide to become successful, and you’ll notice all sorts of magical things start to happen. You’ll walk through life with the same ease that the 1% does, because deep down, you know that there’s NOTHING stopping you from succeeding in all areas of life.
You want to make thousands and thousands of dollars online? Great, there’s nothing in your way—just learn about online business, start an eCommerce store, or write eBooks to sell online for passive income. It’s really that simple.
…or maybe you want to level up your life? Maybe you want to take EVERYTHING to the next level? That’s great, just find your focal point and leverage your action to create an incredible lifestyle that you not only love, but that benefits the entire world.
What is it that you want? Do you want to 10x your attractiveness to women, so that you can get that gorgeous girlfriend you’ve always dreamt of? Then it’s simple—stop getting in your own way and lying to yourself. Just do what you know must be done.
Do you want to make millions of dollars? Great, then learn to invest in Bitcoin and be patient. Pour your resources into whatever your #1 goal is, and stop telling yourself ridiculous excuses that deep, deep down you KNOW are bullshit.
Whatever it is that you want, it’s completely within your reach to attain. Stop wasting time—you can have your cake and eat it, too. When you just stop getting in your own way, you’ll find that you not only have more of the results you want, but you’ll also have more time for leisure.
Learning to level up your life is really quite simple. Just stop lying to yourself. Stop bullshitting yourself. Be a real-dealer, and give yourself the real deal. Do what must be done, stop putting obstacles in your way, and thank me in a year or two.
