My circle of friends has been tighter than ever and I’m loving it. I’ve been a part of a network for a few months now where it’s over 100 people in self development doing everything to make their lives better. Every facet of physical health, mental health, leveling up with books, nutrition, strengthening relationships, and lifting each other up to be upstanding members of society.

I haven’t been this inspired in a while with people who are changing the ontological trajectory of a generation who are wholesome, kind, and genuinely want to be better people. We have workout competitions to see who does the best, share insightful lectures and videos on things that help us improve our self image, and remind each other to go outside into nature, sharing photos and videos of our adventures.
Any time there’s a beautiful leaf, flower, or ladybug when I’m outside or see something green, I share it with these wonderful people. They appreciate it tenfold, remembering to be mindful and go back to nature.
The reading lists we have are next level. It’s more than your average book club.
The dopamine detoxes aren’t even something I’ve mentioned yet. We are not glued to social media all day, trying to live other people’s lives online, instead we create our own lives with our phones down and focus on our loved ones with full attention.
No junk food. No processed nonsense allowed in our pantries or fridges. No sleeping around with girls to pick up right and left. No negative self-talk. No being ungrateful. No being comfortable. No complaining or lack of emotional control. No sign of weakness. Simply be the best you can be in the parts of your life you can control.
I love being in a group of people who encourage each other who get it. It’s a community of gigachads not drinking alcohol, practicing social skills, and cherishing mindfulness.
Every time I have a conversation with normies who have a nine to five, and are glued to their phone who don’t exercise, complain all day about their problems, and don’t see their loved ones immediately around them – we have a HUGE problem. It’s tough to witness all these people with bad posture. Those who do not enunciate when they speak. On top of it all, they make excuses to why they are lazy and do not want to help themselves. It’s a waste of a wonderful life.
Everyone wants a long life, but not a healthy one. Everyone wants to be rich without putting the work in. Everyone wants people to like them without understanding social cues. It’s like asking how do I look more attractive? Then putting tons of makeup on without getting enough sleep, exercising, and eating right to get rid of skin spots, hormone imbalances, and improving your brain’s clarity.
People think backwards. You have to think forwards by surrounding yourself with people who also do. This way when you ask for advice, backtrack on your moments of mistakes, and are looking for inspiration, you have no place to go but up.
