I am 22 years old.
Why I started, I began by imagining the man I wanted to become. I then thought of the things I would need to do on a daily basis to become this man.
I wanted to be wise, so now I try to read as much as I can, 1 hour a day, a book a week, 50 books a year!!
I wanted to be mindful so I practice mindful mediation 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening. (Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world by Prof Mark Williams)
I wanted to be successful so I decided to build up my willpower so I could develop the habits of success.
Nowhere in my aspirations was a man who sat at a computer watching pornography, when I could be using the same computer to increase my knowledge and become wise.
Nowhere in my aspirations was a man who put his hands down his trousers and touched himself to get excited. When I could put those same hands to work to achieve my destiny.
Nowhere in my aspirations was a man who wasted anytime doing anything that was not in pursuit of my lifetime goals.
I am not the same person I was because I decided to change. When my old self tries to reappear, I remember, I am now a great man therefore no longer associate with the weak man of my past.
