While reading yesterday’s email, one of our members spotted a hidden message in my word salad…
“Jay Lolol You link text had me cracking up. It reminded me of parable of business man and fisherman. Were you thinking this?” – Claude
Hahaha Yes, good catch. 😉 That’s exactly what I had in mind when I wrote that last paragraph about my 7 baby mommas buying my Miami penthouse.
For those not familiar with the story, here it is in its entirety…
One day a fisherman was lying on a beautiful beach, with his fishing pole propped up in the sand and his solitary line cast out into the sparkling blue surf. He was enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sun and the prospect of catching a fish.
About that time, a businessman came walking down the beach. He noticed the fisherman sitting on the beach and decided to find out why this fisherman was fishing instead of working harder to make a living for himself and his family.
“You aren’t going to catch many fish that way,” said the businessman. “You should be working rather than lying on the beach!”
The fisherman looked up at the businessman, smiled and replied, “And what will my reward be?”
“Well, you can get bigger nets and catch more fish!” was the businessman’s answer.
“And then what will my reward be?” asked the fisherman, still smiling.
The businessman replied, “You will make money and you’ll be able to buy a boat, which will then result in larger catches of fish!”
“And then what will my reward be?” asked the fisherman again.
The businessman was beginning to get a little irritated with the fisherman’s questions. “You can buy a bigger boat, and hire some people to work for you!” he said.
“And then what will my reward be?” repeated the fisherman.
The businessman was getting angry. “Don’t you understand? You can build up a fleet of fishing boats, sail all over the world, and let all your employees catch fish for you!”
Once again the fisherman asked, “And then what will my reward be?”
The businessman was red with rage and shouted at the fisherman, “Don’t you understand that you can become so rich that you will never have to work for your living again! You can spend all the rest of your days sitting on this beach fishing, looking at the sunset. You won’t have a care in the world!”
Some people might misinterpret this message and use it to justify lazy behavior.
“If I’m already happy sitting on my ass playing Xbox, why force myself to feel uncomfortable and expend all that time and energy without any guarantee of success?”
I hear ya’. And I can assure you that, regardless of what they tell themselves, most guys who consume entertainment all day are NOT happy.
They use TV, games, etc. to distract themselves from the uncomfortable feelings swirling around in their stomachs 24-7.
I can also assure you that the process you’ll need to go through to achieve the things you REALLY want in life will give you a deeper sense of satisfaction and fulfillment than any video game ever could.
The juice is in the PROCESS. You need to get out there, take some risks, and skin your knees a bit.
And once in a while, expect to get run over by an 18-wheeler. But after you peel yourself off the pavement, you’ll realize that you were invincible this whole time and didn’t know it.
Welcome to God Mode.
So go push yourself to create a life you can be proud of while training yourself to be happy all throughout the process – not just when you reach the finish line.
(And it wouldn’t hurt to take a few fishing trips each year, either.)
So when you think about the kind of year you’d like to create for yourself, if being surrounded by beautiful girls who are captivated by your presence appeals to you…
…then a good place to start would be learning how to make them feel incredible with just a short little conversation. And if you don’t mind turning off the TV for few hours, then you can learn this incredibly useful skill right here:
