Nov 18 – Optimism

Comments off 594 Views0


I am doing my best to keep optimistic and happy right now. I knew this was going to happen…but it is what it is. As the book gets closer to releasing, more threads will get created and more people will fire on me over my “stellar” PTR results. Now, I have always been upfront about that, and give DB screen shots with usernames on them, but I hate having people firing on me. It is the the absolute worst part of being a coach…people will always shit on you. Your either have poor public results, less than stellar, or “aren’t crushing enough.” Of course, it is up to a potential buyer to make an educated decision whether or not to buy my product(s)…but if you aren’t going to buy it anyway…why the fuck are you saying shit about me? Ok, enough of that negative shit, lol

The last few days have been super busy. I planned on having a pretty laid back week with regards to coaching, and randomly picked up a ton of hours. So I have just been working on random stuff between sessions (edits, 6max, etc.), but enjoying being busy. This is a really stressful time…but I’m trying to remind myself to enjoy the stress and have fun with it. Random note, I watched a documentary on stress a few weeks ago and the way that we release adrenaline when stressed. We, as humans, apparently release a similar amount of adrenaline when stressing over dumb shit that an animal releases when it’s life is being threatened. It makes me feel ridiculous that I hurt myself so much with stress (both physical and psychological), that I am trying to start using stress as a more positive thing. We’ll see how that goes…

Everything else is going really well. My green slip for my car finally got released, so I officially own it. I will go get my custom plates next week, and will show a pic once they actually come in. I have been hitting the gym every other day and feel in really good shape. Diet-wise, not great, lol. I have been eating a ton of pizza bagels (home-made, not those terrible microwavable ones), and I’m guessing those aren’t the healthiest things. I am looking forward to hiring a fulltime chef…that will probably be my first “baller” purchase, whenever I make it. Nothing will be better than eating healthier.

Past that, everything is fine. I need to be up insanely early tomorrow (fucking 8:30a), so I should probably get to sleep. Here is an awesome video about the quantitative easing that made me laugh non stop (and it’s pretty educational for those interested in American economics). Enjoy, and hope all is well!
