Default How to FORCE Yourself to Succeed



Been there done that, totally agreed with his message..
Wanted to post it in here in case some people needed to hear this.

Don't fear quitting a job, moving away, breaking relationships.. it may be the only way to force yourself to succeed!

I must be bored, I actually watched that video
And I disagree with him completely. If the drive doesn't come from within yourself, you will quit running as soon as that dog stops chasing you. The guys that succeed are the guys that are driven no matter what and keep the finish line moving further and further away. Smashing your video game is a rash behavior and not indicitive of somebody that's driven. A driven person will just turn it off because other goals take priority.

I used to like Elliot, until I found out he was promoting some bogus plan of his he wanted you to buy, that claimed he had the secret to packing on like 50 pounds of muscle in 6 months or something stupid like that :L

So many perspectives and theories bloodymindedly ignore the elephant in the room: free will.

Yeah, you can try to set things up for better or worse, and "force" a reaction out of yourself or whatever. Suuuuure. Because that will work, especially long term...

Or, hey, you can actually just make a powerful decision, and persevere.

Willpower isn't a consequence, it's a causative force. A choice.

And then people inevitably whine that "it's not that simple." Yes. Yes, it is.


tl;dr: What OR said.
