Energy

When I’m with people, I rate the interaction on a scale of 1-5.

A 5 is a, “What a day! I can’t believe what that person’s doing. This is incredible. We had amazing conversation. I feel like I need to do more or think more. That was just great, a phenomenal, phenomenal experience.”

A 1 is a spiritual vampire. Every time I’m with that person it’s gossip and drama and why they’re mad at people, why they hate people, why they think the world is going to you-know-where, and they’re just so angry. And what a drain, I feel sick, I need to go drink some wine or eat some pizza or something after that kind of meeting.

If you’re below a 4, bye. I don’t have time to let other people drain me with their negativity, their toxic views, their terrible outlook on life. That is draining. And if you’re using your energy or having it drained, and you have to reboot your energy, that’s energy you didn’t do something aspirational for.

Energy can be used only one of two ways.

You can either use your energy repairing yourself from the hazards of the world … It’s called playing defense … or you can use your energy to push your life forward, this is called playing offense.

I always ask, “Is this action moving my life forward?”

I’m not moving forward in my life with this person in my life. I’m now spending all this time trying to regain my energy to get back to normal so I can go do what I want to do. That’s lifestyle design. Ruthless energy focus.

And a lot of people don’t think that that’s for them, and hey. It’s your own life. If people are holding you back, that might be why you’re not getting to where you want to be in life, ’cause if you hang out with negative people, your energy’s drained.

If your energy is drained, your mindset is naturally going to be less optimistic.

And if you’re spending time with toxic people, negative people, then you’re not going to have an optimistic mindset.

Energy and Lifestyle.

The same is true of lifestyle. A lot of people struggle with various issues in their life, and I know personally that if I eat too much bread, for example, then my body’s inflamed. I’m not gluten intolerant, but I just don’t feel as good, because mindset is a feeling.

Energy and Mindset mindset.

Mindset is a moment, mindset is self-talk. Mindset is a feeling, mindset is an outlook. If you’re eating things or engaging in activities that don’t make you feel good, maybe dating people you shouldn’t date, then your mindset’s going to be negative. You’re not going to feel good. And if you don’t feel good, then that’s going to fold back into your habits, and then your habits are going to reinforce the negative mindset. And what I try to do is rather than have vicious circles, I try to have virtuous circles.

Virtue is something you don’t hear people talk about. Everybody wants to life a world of vice and how can you indulge and be a hedonist, and that is why people are sick and the world is sick.

I don’t have time for sick people.

This is controversial to a lot of people. To me, it’s so banal that I can’t believe it angers people.

Why are people angry when I talk about cutting people out?

Because they are low consciousness!

If I read an article about cutting out negative people, I’d think, “Yes, that’s smart. I do the same.”

The biggest lifestyle choice people can make is to analyze and rate every interaction you have with a supposed friend or a supposed family member. And if people are not making you feel a certain way, if they’re making you feel a bad way, getting rid of those people, cutting those people out of your lives or at least eliminating the time, reducing the time you spend with them … That will probably have more impact on the way you feel than any single decision you can make in your life.

Like any other skill … And I tend to think of mindset as a skill. Even though people think of mindset as a destination and a way of life, I think of it as a skill. And the more you practice it, the better you get at it. And then you level up. A lot of things that worry people just don’t worry me at all. I don’t even view them as concerns.

Is “Kung Flu” the latest Media Hoax?

Published

on

Several White House reporters confronted Trump regarding his decision to call the coronavirus (or COVID-19) the China Virus.  One reporter asked him about a White House administration official who is alleged to have called the coronavirus Kung Flu.

When the reporter was asked the name of the official, the reporter said she didn’t know.

The original claim regarding Kung Flu comes from CBS reporter Weijia Jiang. On March 17th, she Tweeted:

This morning a White House official referred to #Coronavirus as the “Kung-Flu” to my face. Makes me wonder what they’re calling it behind my back.

Ms. Jiang has not identified the official.

One reason could be because this official does not even exist.

Under American defamation law, you can lie all you like.

You can’t lie about a person by name.

If no White House official called the coronavirus Kung Flu, or if there is some important context missing, then Jiang could be sued.

You can watch the Kung Flu exchange in this video here:

The Stafford Act Text Message Announcing an Emergency Quarantine is a Hoax

Published

on

By now you or someone you know has received a hoax text announcing martial law. With some minor variations, the texts all read the same:

  • In 48 to 72 hours the president will evoke what is called the Stafford act. Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing. The president will order a two week mandatory quarantine for the nation. Stock up on whatever you guys need to make sure you have a two week supply of everything. Please forward.

 

The National Security Council issued a rare public statement warning the public that the Stafford act text was a hoax.

How can you tell the Stafford Act Text is a Hoax?

Even if you refuse to accept the NSC’s word on the matter, the text message has some telltale signs of a hoax.

First, the text promises secret insider knowledge. “Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing.” This is a vague enough proclamation that it sounds plausible.

Second, no specifics of these friends are given. Who are these friends? Why did they call this specific person?

Third, the hoaxers ask you to spread the message. Why would anyone acting in good faith want to incite a panic?

If an emergency quarantine were able to be declared, the plan would be Top Secret. No one’s friends would just get out of a briefing and start alerting people. THEY WOULD GO TO PRISON FOR LEAKING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

If such an emergency plan were in the works and higher command wanted the story to get out, they’d leak it to a credible outlet. Not share chain-letter style text messages.

There’s also tradecraft involved in sharing classified information.

None of the telltale signs (and no I won’t share how to leak classified secrets here) were present in that alert.

UPDATE: Other outlets are now reporting that the Stafford Act text is a foreign disinformation campaign:

The Trump administration is alleging that a foreign disinformation campaign is underway aimed at spreading fear in the country amid the coronavirus pandemic, three U.S. officials said Monday. On Sunday, federal officials began confronting what they said was a deliberate effort by a foreign entity to sow fears of a nationwide quarantine amid the virus outbreak.

Agencies took coordinated action Sunday evening to deny that any such plans were put in place, as they tried to calm a nation already on edge by disruptions to daily life caused by the virus.

How Trump Drafted Google into the War Against Coronavirus

Published

on

Elvis Presley served in the Army after he was drafted, and in American history it was common for celebrities to serve their country during times of national crisis. Noblesse oblige, or the duty the noble and rich owed to society, arouse perhaps out of morality or maybe simple self-preservation. If you’re getting while the getting is good, giving something back goes a long way to avoid class resentment.

Those thoughts were perhaps on Trump’s mind (or more likely his instinct) when he announced that Google was taking massive action to help America fight the coronavirus.

Google at first pushed back at the suggestion that it, a nearly trillion dollar mega-corporation, actually doing something to help the users it profits from.

Why should Google help save lives? Why should Google do anything other than operate as an amoral, blood-sucking corporation that violates user privacy and exploits children?

The media bros were quick to rush to save Google. Poor Google! They were being bullied by the ORANGE MAN BAD.

Google’s media errand boys like Jake Tapper and others were quick to publish stories attacking Trump for suggesting that Google actually do something.

Some like your humble correspondent Mike Cernovich saw right away was Trump was doing.

Trump was drafting Google into the war against coronavirus.

Google, whatever its motivations, answered the draft.

Public pressure must intensify.

The corporations make billions of dollars a day by spying on users.

The least they can do is use that data to find out where coronavirus hot spots are, share that information with the CDC, and get information shared with the sick.
