If you question your beliefs enough, you end up with nothing but the pieces of a game. You end up with an understanding that everything that we can make sense of with words is a human construct that does not have a base of absolute truth.
These constructs are what anchor your mind to reality. These constructs create the game that we’ve unconsciously built ourselves into.
When you are aware of this game, you can learn to win it.
It is rare to see somebody that is living a passionate, zestful life.
It is rarer to see somebody that willingly “works” all day.
Building, writing, contemplating, curious, experiencing, diving deep into the unknown, and meditating on the problems that keep them up at night.
Something has to change.
If your future is the result of societal education and conditioning, it is safe to say you will have the same future as everyone else. And to be frank, that doesn’t seem very enticing.
If you are lost, the answer is education.
If you are educated, the answer is action.
If you are acting, the answer is consistency.
Nothing worthwhile is predictable. There is not a set path. You cannot expect one, because if there were one, it would be taught in schools.
The people that get paid the most are not those that are trained into an occupation constructed by society. Anybody can do that. That is how you become a “cog in the machine.”
You’re reading this letter because you have a (good) desire for more in life. You want to bridge the gap between work and life. You want to live a life of zest, passion, and deep satisfaction for the domain you decide to pursue with full force.
You have to revive your child-like curiosity, feel into it, and let it guide you throughout life. Some people use the words intuition, your “calling,” your purpose, or anything else that refers to tapping into the intelligent voice inside you (that everyone is born with).
A good place to start is to think about your childhood. Did you have a natural affinity towards anything? Did you gravitate towards specific interests? Some people may have a slight inclination towards sound, making them want to get into music.
Diving real deep into a particular interest is how you pursue a truly unique path.
Your curiosity would eventually lead you to something that seems completely unrelated to your the interest you initially chose. This differentiates you from the sea of individuals pursuing a set path — giving you informational leverage that you can charge big bucks for.
It is the simple commitment to never rely on anything but yourself to actualize your potential.
Money is no longer optional. The need for money is encoded in the system. We don’t live in huts or hunt our own food anymore. Our psyche remains the same — wired for survival — but the environment we live in is completely different.
The first thing you should begin educating yourself on is a skill that will eventually help you make money. This can be anything really, but marketable skills are usually the best option (and beginner-level information is readily available online).
The Domain Of Mastery has you choose 3 interests: What excites you, what lets you earn, and what develops you.
By studying these and improving your skillset, you are diving deeper into the unknown. You are exposing yourself to information that schools won’t teach you.
The thing that most people don’t understand is that in order to be a Master Of One, you have to be a jack of all trades. You have to dive deep into the iceberg of awareness if you want to be creative in that domain.
Being a specialist can be trained. We are not trying to do something that others can be trained into.
As you dive deeper into these interests, you will realize that they all lead to the same thing — which is life itself. The universe is a giant mind. A network of complex and creative systems.
When you learn Photoshop, aside from knowing how to navigate the software, there are only a few things you need to know — the principles.
Selections, masks, and adjustment layers.
When you understand those, you can pretty much create anything you would need (unless the project demands something more.
This is true with almost anything. When you understand the principles, you can accomplish 80% of the work you would need to get done in that domain.
Find a congruent voice that you can learn from.
You may or may not get useful information from someone who talks strictly about business.
Search for books, social media accounts, podcasters, YouTubers, and any other information you can find on your topic of interest. If what they teach does not register with you, find another mentor that has a congruent voice you can make sense of (and are excited to learn from).
Kickstart a personal brand to post your learnings online. That alone will force you to understand money-making skills if you want to see real progress. Copywriting, marketing, persuasion, sales, etc are all necessary to put out an impactful message and turn your interests into income.
Remember, you can only learn so much by learning. You have to apply what you learn if you want to open new mental pathways to explore.
If you keep things in your head, you will get stuck in a loop of learning the same thing over and over without moving to the next level. You need real-world feedback.
Once the principles are solidified in your head and you are actively struggling/failing with your real-world project — you will start to recognize patterns in everyday life.
Creating content brings an entirely new sense of enjoyment to life. Pattern recognition increases dopamine levels in the brain (because you are hunting for your survival). You start to recognize things you never have before — because they actually have a use case now.
You start to appreciate the depth that life has to offer when you have something to apply your everyday experiences to — writing content online.
States are temporary.
Stages are permanent.
You can have a high month in business — which is a state — but it may not be maintained month to month.
But, if you develop your business leverage to a point where it’s near impossible to dip under $20K a month, that is a stage.
You can enter a flow state, or you can develop yourself to a point of being in a perpetual degree of flow (see: enlightenment).
You can have a burst of creativity, or you can develop yourself to a point of having a baseline level of creativity.
This is true for most traits, skills, and domains of life.
Most of your problems stem from mental limitations and blockages.
If you want to master all areas of life, mental mastery must be at the top of your list.
As you dive deeper into your Domain Of Mastery, it will demand a certain amount of cognitive development to reach the next “stage.”
When you reach this first stage, you are ready to start monetizing.
Your job is to help people reach that stage of development faster than you did with what you learned along the way.
You do this by selling a creative solution that will help someone navigate your path in less time.
By helping others reach that developmental stage that you have (whether it’s free or paid) you are forced to organize the information and make connections.
This will open up the room to reach your next developmental stage faster.
When you have everything you’ve made sense of packaged up and hosted in the digital world — you don’t have to worry about it anymore. You get to build on top of it. Iteration.
By doing this consistently over a 2-3 year span, you will bust through new stages of development, help others get there, and gain a deep satisfaction for life in general.
If you are intentional and actively expanding your awareness in search of your life’s work, you will find it.
Here are two questions to meditate on:
Whenever I have a problem I just sing, then I realize my voice is worse than my problem
Your Life's Work is what your calling is and how you balance your work life.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
