Success Environments

August 8, 2011


As according to my introspective psychoanalysis and self-experiments, I can safely say that successful people spawn from success-environments. From everything that surrounds me, from friends, pictures, music, video, (audio) books, from any sort of media or environment-immediate information dispenser, there are plenty of noticeable, interconnected results. From remembering Japanese so I can actually use my […]

Theoretically Applying Environment-Birthlines

August 3, 2011


(Note: This is simply a reiteration from my comment on AJATT. I actually plan to follow through with this. I post it here so that it’s forever in my blogging history, never to be forgotten.) I wondered if someone were to simply set up a trial where all their goals were changed to this format. […]

Burning Bridges or: Options, Their Limits, and Their Possibilities

June 25, 2011


Simple and clean: We gravitate to that which is the only option. Missions are that: missions. There is no other option but to succeed. Are we setting up the components of an existence that forces us to succeed? Then we aren’t really going anywhere. We may have a place to go, and we may act […]
