10 Minute Daily Reality Check
Join me 7 days a week as I blow the lid off everything you THINK you know about dating, relationships, society, and more.
Social media is great at brainwashing.
People in powerful positions are good brainwashers.
But why are we so susceptible to it?
Why do we do whatever’s “In” right now?
I don’t want people to influence me for anything right now.
John Keegan here thinks these social media influencers want to brainwash us to follow extremism just like the universities. It’s everywhere.
And we hand over our total privacy to facebook with their new “Portal” app that’s on 24/7.
And people are allowing this. People are allowing Facebook into their lives to spy on everything you say and do.
These people you’re letting into your lives that you broadcast your entire lives out to are not your friends.
Anything you want to learn is on youtube.
We can find everything on “Youtube University” and it’s free.
The problem with youtube is that anyone can post a video and you have to sift through all the videos to get the best info.
But you learn important things in Universities that you can’t learn on youtube.
I’ve been in NY and I recently found a gender neutral clothing store that accommodates everyone.
I’m having difficulty understanding why anyone wants to be “neutral” because I feel anything in the middle is mediocre.
Gender neutral is widespread in universities.
I’d like to hear more from everyone else about what they feel about “gender neutral”.
Let’s talk about it.
I’m in NY and it’s time for a dose of John Keegan.
Thinking about this- To live in the past is to die in the present.
How many people are in the present moment thinking about triggers from the past?
When we focus on the past and obsess about the future, like thinking the way some past relationships ended, we tend to discuss these things in a jaded way.
Instead of seeing it as a journey that helps us grow, we feel better being jaded. It feels more comfortable to think the bad in the past was a waste of time.
Our brain is programmed to see the past as a failure. That’s because we haven’t healed.
Our ability to focus on something is our ability to create our own reality.
John says, “Good vibes only” and he’s right.
Challenge yourself and create your own reality.
I’m wearing brand new Nikes today and it reminds me of so many things we’re not doing on a daily basis.
Nike’s motto is “Just Do It” but so many people just can’t do it.
How long do you spend talking about what you need to do? How many therapists have you been to? How many times do you overanalyze the same situations every day?
Imagine how productive you would be if you stopped talking about things that are holding you back.
We don’t get time back.
Don’t over analyze.
Work on the thing that’s been holding you back.
It’s time to just do it.
I’m going to NY for a few days to see family and enjoy some winter weather.
It’s my favorite time in NYC. There’s magic in the air in New York at Christmas time.
There’s no magic in the air in LA.
I go get my ass frozen at a cryo place, and this girl asks me “what would I do if I could do it all again?”
I would do some things differently.
I would go back and push myself harder.
We seem to want everything immediately. We don’t have much patience.
I think about some lessons that keep coming up in my life again.
We keep ourselves stuck in fear. It’s like mental masturbation.
I want you to think about what lessons come up differently for you?
The universe delivers lessons to us on a daily basis.
I just found out that a Running Back got released from his position because he assaulted a woman in a club.
She called him the worst thing possible and in turn, he assaulted her publicly.
There is nothing ok with what he did, but I have a hard time knowing that publications like TMZ can just assist in ruining lives by publishing every single action made by celebrities.
They do this because we live in a culture of people who are obsessed with everything celebrities do.
And this guy made a huge mistake.
But was it right for the media to expose it the way they did?
Let’s just get high.
Let’s just get stoned and drunk and forget about our problems.
We can forget about the fact that our lives are a mess.
We can get ultra creative coming up with solutions.
And then we’ll wake and start it over again.
We’ll not go fix our lives, we’ll just get lazy and lost and stoned with no answers. We’ll get dumber.
We get high and do dumb things like send drunk texts to exes.
The higher we get the dumber we get, the lazier we become.
I’m not talking about recreational use when our lives are ok. I’m talking about using these things to numb us from our life’s issues. I’m talking about escaping our inner truth.
Being numb is dumb.
We can’t grow and evolve when we ignore our problems.
Confront your shit. Today.
What do you do if a deal doesn’t work out for you like it was supposed to?
Do you go back and sue the person? Do you bully the person?
There seems to be lawyers just for buyer’s remorse.
Lawyers don’t care about buyers and their remorse, it’s just their job.
Lawyers seem to be those kids who were picked on in life and they wanted to get people back. They create havoc.
But then I think about doctors and some of the things they do. Doctors seem to really care about people.
Think about the people you know in life and think about their jobs and if they fit.
Can you look at your kid’s friends and see which will be the lawyer and which will be the doctor?
Are you truly utilizing your skills that you were blessed with?
I want to launch a new app called “The Self Absorbed Meter”.
I run into self absorbed people all day.
There’s not enough etiquette.
Everyone is self absorbed not leaving room for others.
But when you turn it around on them by going around them, they get offended.
This is because we live in a world where people are rewarded for being self centered and self absorbed.
This illusion is really dangerous.
When we’re constantly thinking “me me me”, we miss out on connecting with other people.
We’re rewarded for narcissistic behavior when people give us a “like” on our pictures and comments.
It takes a conscious effort to not be self absorbed.
So ask yourself- how many times a day do you do a self absorbed act?
Then ask yourself why.
We need to understand there are people on this planet who need to share the space with us.
Take responsibility for being nicer.
