Revolt from the corruption of the world:
Realize The Value of Your TIME
You are going to die one day and leave this life. What do you want to do and be before then?
We are manifestations of a magnificent creative force. Filled with vast potential. Your life is your own. Set the bar high on where/how you will spend your time. In the end, what did you do with your one precious life? It’s 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.
There should be nothing radical about taking care of yourself. This is one of the main things you should be about.
Take care of yourself and your family. Eat quality food. Be active and engaged. Exercise. Go on adventures. Drink water. Stimulate your mind. Get in touch with the earth and nature. Invest in health above all else.
If you do this, it will have significant effects on all of your life.
Learn about and practice stoicism. It includes wisdom on living a clear life of calm and reason. You don’t have power over outside events. Your power resides in how you behave 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’ll improve when you ditch TV. Not only is it loaded with bad/low-quality information, it acts like a drug on you. Come on ….!!….it’s poor expenditure of your life time.
You’ll save money (your energy) for better things.
Handing your money over for TV programming is a poor investment. Not to mention it enriches/empowers corporations and people who diligently work against your best interests. Stop supporting this manipulation and exploitation.
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
Be vigilant about what you consume. Try not to buy/obtain things that don’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.
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 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, and quality experiences. Needing less money gives you advantages and flexibility.
Repair, reuse, recycle, and 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 the 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, and 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
