Hello, ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to another blog post.
I’m here today to bring you just a quick little bit of insight I had over the course of this last week.
Yesterday, I was overwhelmed. I was doing some things that were pretty frustrating, was very busy, and was a little bit stressed out.
I was asking myself a bunch of questions, and I was just having one of those days where I was stressed out and debating on what direction I should go in with some specific things.
It was just one of those days where I found myself lacking clarity.
And what I ended up doing was this:
I ended up going to Spotify. I looked up some podcasts from ‘thought mentors’ I like to listen to.
These are men and women who I plug into my ears, to help me gain positivity, clarity, and insight in my life.
I chose a podcast, and I listened to it.
On this particular day, I chose this podcast:
And I gained a lot of clarification and insight.
What’s The Point You’re Trying To Make Here, Josh?
The point is, all too often, we let that chaos just come into our lives and disrupt us, rather than trying to plug something really positive or intentional into our ears to listen to.
Here’s the thing—if you want to succeed in life and crush it on the dating marketplace, you can’t ever stop learning.
This is true not only of dating, but also of business, being a good person, staying fit, and just in-general leveling up your mind, body, and spirit.
When I listen to the Bulldog Mindset podcast, for example—I am always learning things.
Because that guy is further along in the game than I am—and I can learn from his experiences and insight.
You cannot just go along in life, and never plug any education into your ears.
We need to be learning from people who are better than we are.
We have to be learning from people who have done what we want to do—people who have gotten incredible results from their efforts.
Where Your Dating Life Is Concerned, This Could Not Be More Important
It’s very important that you’re continually leveling up what it means to be high value, and leveling up your attraction.
You also need to be leveling up your desirability, and just in-general leveling up your value on the dating marketplace.
If you’re not getting better and leveling up, you are getting passed by the people who are getting better.
And that just moves you backwards.
Now I realize that I’m making it sound horribly competitive…
But guess what?
It IS horribly competitive.
Some people say that “there is someone out there for everyone.”
Well, that may be true.
But you’re going to end up settling for someone who’s less than what you could have settled for.
If you don’t do the work.
If you are like me, you want to have the best life possible, right?
Well, how much happier will your life be if you can draw amazing, high value partners into your life, instead of ‘half way’ partners who aren’t really good for you?
It matters. That’s a huge factor in general well-being and happiness.
I don’t know about you, but I want the best of the best in my life.
And I’m pretty sure that YOU want that as well.
And part of doing that work means plugging something into your mindset, something that is better than you… something that is going to give you positivity, something that is going to lift you up.
Plug-into something that is going to teach you things you haven’t learned before, because you don’t know what you don’t know
And the only way to learn is to plug it in, and listen.
Of course, you can also watch, read, etc.
Books, blogs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks—they are all the same, as long as whatever you are consuming is from someone who knows more than you, who is capable of teaching you how they achieved what you want to achieve for yourself.
I listen to a lot of podcasts because it saves me time. But I also read books. That’s awesome as well. I read blog posts, that’s awesome. Whatever it is that helps you to learn, right?
So The Takeaway Is This…
When you wake up every morning, make sure that you’re setting aside time every day to learn things that you didn’t know before.
Instead of engaging in ‘escapism,’ plug content into your brain that’s going to help you become a better, more capable human.
- Learn about how you can increase your value in the dating marketplace.
- Learn about how you can make more money in your business.
- Learn about how you can get better results in the gym.
- Learn about how you can have better relationships and communicate better.
- Learn about how you can make your life incrementally better every day, and make YOURSELF incrementally better every day as well.
All of these things matter. They all lead up to big positive changes over time. I just can’t stress that enough.
It is so, so important.
That doesn’t mean that listening to what someone else says makes it the gospel truth, either
You need to be self-aware in that sense.
You may only pick out one or two of the hundred things they say. And you think yourself “yeah, those things are valuable.”
And when you’re done, you’ve learned two things you didn’t know yesterday—and that’s powerful.
You don’t necessarily always need 100% of what someone else is saying.
But if you don’t listen, you’ll never learn.
And that’s the downside. That’s the negative. That’s what you don’t want to do.
What you want to do is this… you want to listen, and you want to level up.
You want to take what is good for you and apply it to your life. You want to make your life better.
That’s the key. That’s why education is important.
All right, that’s all I’ve got for this one for today. Go with grace, my friends. Never give up your power.
