1. Live as if your reality is an AI generated simulation. The story you tell yourself every day dictates the reality that you live in. How lucky are you? How blessed are you? How happy are you? Consciously write your story, and engrain it into your mind until your subconscious believes it as well. This will become your operating system in the simulation.
2. You become your environment, the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with. Don’t spend a lot of time with people unless you want to become like them. If you don’t have people in your life that you want to be like– then become comfortable with alone time and surround yourself with authors and podcasters that you want to become more like.
3. Discipline equals freedom. Never sacrifice short term gratification for what you really want in the long term.
