Thank you. Let me know when you hit chin up 3998, and I’ll turn on the recorder 😉.
I’ve always been a big fan of David Goggins. His book is amazing, the audio book is even better.
In addition to changing your thinking, try changing your language. Study the words you say everyday. The words you use can be describing the world around you, but it can also be creating the world around you.
I’m doing a little experiment. I found myself saying, “ I have to do x, y, and z”. I…
I’d agree with the assessment that humanity has always lived in a post-truth era. In particular, the media who claims to be the arbiter of truth has always been one to mislead.
The best examples I can give of this is one that’s not well known — well the facts aren’t exactly well known. The…

That boost got the story to the to the “Popular on Medium” list, then it got me lots of domestic traffic.
It’s amazing what can be extrapolated from something as simple as a nursery rhyme. The amount of history that one can walk through just investigating this idea is staggering. It can send you down a rabbit hole that’ll keep you busy for months. If you want to see another interesting nursery rhyme argument being fought in real time, check out Humpty…
Thanks for reading and commenting. Unfortunately, I did an updated version of this article and another publication picked it up. I would definitely be interested in being a writer for your pub though. I’m not sure how often I’d submit pieces, but there’s really no pub dedicated to martial arts. So when I did write…
