A few ways to revolt against the corruption of the world:
Realize The Value of Your TIME
You are going to die one day. This alone should bring home the value of your time.
You are a product of a magnificent creative force. You have vast potential. Your life is your own. Do not allow others to devalue you. Set the bar high on where you will spend your time. In the end, what did you do with your one precious life? It is your story to write. Make it a good one.
Time is free, but it’s priceless
You can’t own it, but you can use it
You can’t keep it, but you can spend it
Once you’ve lost it,
you can never get it back.Harvey MacKay
HEALTHY. HEAL THY self. Prioritize Health.
Take care of yourself and your family. Eat quality food. Live an active lifestyle. Excercise. Have adventures. Drink water. Stimulate your mind. Invest in health above all else.
If you do this, it will have significant repercussions for all aspects of your life.
Learn about and practice stoicism. It includes much wisdom on living a clear life of calm and reason. You don’t have power over outside events. Your power resides in how you act and react to life.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself in your way of thinking.Marcus Aurelius
Stop Watching TV
You will improve when you ditch TV. It’s loaded with bad information, brainwashing, delusion, sex, and violence. It encourages unnecessary and destructive consumption.
You will save money (your energy) for better things.
Handing your money over for TV programming is a poor investment. You are enriching corporations and people who diligently work to against your best interests. Stop supporting this manipulation and exploitation of life.
Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need, and the things you own, end up owning you.Tyler Durden – Fight Club
Don’t Participate in Unnecessary Consumption
Stop buying stuff you don’t need that doesn’t add significant value to life.
The things you own end up owning you.
Stop teaching children to live consumeristic lives. Instead of spending money on them, spend time with them. Show them the love of learning, not shopping.
Excessive consumption is damaging the environment. You cannot be healthy without a healthy environment. Stop destroying it for your entertainment. Find fulfillment and value in meaningful pursuits instead. Give glory to creation.
Develop Practical Skills
Read. Learn. Self-educate. Gain practical skills to be able to do things for yourself and your family.
Teach your children the value of self-education, useful skills, knowledge about the natural world, philosophy, self-reliance, autonomy, and community.
Learn about money. Teach yourself about the financial industry and its history. Understand what money is. Respect it. Don’t allow it to be your master…it is the other way around.
Get out of debt and stop going into debt. Debtors prison is a way for others to take the control of your life from you.
Learn and practice frugality. Being frugal is not the same as being a cheapskate. You can spend less and live well. Spending less can offer you more freedom of time. You’re not stuck in a grind of having to work or else. You gain breathing room to pursue better options, goals, quality experiences. Needing less money give you advantages and flexibility.
Repair, reuse, recycle, repurpose. Become a critical and discerning consumer. Weigh the ROI of what you are spending on. (Return On Investment).
Diversify income. Multiple income streams are better than one. Learn about passive income. Take advantage of it. Use the internet to educate yourself on these topics.
Build monetary savings. Very Useful!! But do not kid yourself that it’s the ultimate security. This sort of wealth can vanish easily. You can also lose property. Do not be so attached to these things that losing them will be the ruin of you. The best wealth to build is your health, mind, intellect, skills, ingenuity, experiences…they are far more valuable.
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.Albert Camus
