Musings Episode 74: Do You Deserve It…?

So I’m hoping everyone had an epic weekend. There are some thoughts that have been bouncing around in my head since the last episodic musing, in particular thoughts that revolve around what people define as being deserving of things.

You look on social media, and you listen to conversationswatch movies, listen to lyrics in songs…and I’ve realised something’s popping up more and more that I don’t entirely agree with. Alright here goes…

Musings Episode 74: Do You Deserve It?

don't let anyone ever make you feel like you don't deserve what you want 10 things i hate about you,10 things I hate about you quotes, rego's life quotes,, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, deserve quotes, do you deserve it quotes, you deserve it quotes, life, willpower, will power, free will, witt lowry, ollie music, ollie raps, witt lowry the ride, ollie product, witt lowry dreaming with our eyes open
It seems that people are starting to think it’s alright to gauge and dictate to other people whether they deserve something or not.

Now I mentioned in the previous episodic musing that when it comes to free will, no one has the right to really dictate to anyone what they should get out of life – Epictetus made this clear, and to paraphrase him once more, attempting to control or dictate another person’s free will takes tremendous effort as it goes against the natural law of things; things which are in our control, and things which are out of our control.

As a side note, if you haven’t read Epictectus’ “Enchiridion” – it’s basically a summarised version, a “manual” of his teaching of Stoicism – I highly recommend you pick it up from Amazon.

Seriously it cost less than coffee if you get the Dover Thrift Edition. Buy it.

Getting back to the subject, I saw something interesting the other day on Instagram. I didn’t screenshot it as it made me so disgusted it wasn’t worth a save in my phone, but ironically it pissed me off so bad I remember it clearly; so I’ll tell you what is said.

“Those who think they deserve it the most, usually don’t.”

…..Seriously?

What’s interesting is I’ve heard this once or twice in some songs I’ve stumbled across when discovering new music, and group conversations I’ve been involved in in the past.

And I wholeheartedly disagree with this.

Fair enough, there are some people who don’t put in any work for something they want; and there are people who are given everything they want without putting in any work, ergo feeling they deserve whatever they want.

But there are also those out there who bust their ass everyday – for months, years – grinding and meet rejection after rejection and know they deserve what they want.

It's a great great experience to finally get the reception that you know you rightfully deserve Kendrick Lamar, kendrick lamar quotes, rego's life quotes, Kendrick Lamar, deserving quotes, deserve quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur
And when I see people who state that people who think they deserve something don’t, it really gets under my skin, because when you think about it…it’s not a bold statement – it’s assumptive and asinine, a dash of ignorance, and just a sprinkle of arrogant.

When you take your attention away from mainstream – mainstream TV, movies, music, books, websites, everything…you begin to think about things differently…and when you think about it successful mainstream people don’t really elaborate on what their way up was like – not in a raw, real feel sense.

I’ve been listening to some less well-known music artists on YouTube lately when I get a chance and I’ve gotta say, some of their lyrics hit me like a brick wall.

They don’t talk about women, drugs, cars, sex, pumped up violence, all the regular bunk you hear on mainstream artists’ songs; but they talk about real things no one else wants to really discuss – things other artists probably know won’t sell as well:

Witt Lowry – The Ride

Ollie – Product

Witt Lowry – Dreaming With Our Eyes Open

And listening to the lyrics makes you realise, that the only person who has a right to ask you if you deserve it – if you deserve what you want – is you.

If you’re out there making the effort, changing your game plan when some things don’t work, learning new stuff to make other things work, and not losing sight of what it is you want – if what you want has substance – no one has a right to tell you that if you think you deserve it the most, you probably don’t.

That’s just bull.

If you work hard in real life people tend to get in your way either from inertia or prejudice and they stop you achieving things It's the worst thing about real life compared with sports where you generally get what you deserve if you're the fastest guy you win there are no other games being played Daley Thompson, Daley Thompson quotes, rego's life quotes, Daley Thompson, deserving quotes, deserve quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur
And anyone who has the audacity to make such a statement in my opinion is somebody who is consciously making an incompetent statement, has never even entertained the thought about considering what it’s like to walk in someone’s shoes, or simply thinks there’s not enough caviar to go around.

Having the gall enough to even make that statement, shows that someone is already spoilt rotten with a complete disregard for humanity.

Because there are three main paths that people who go after what they want and think they deserve end up taking:

The path of attaining what they deserve.
The path of settling for less than what they deserve (read: the path of becoming complacent).
The path of giving up on the FEELING of deserving what they’ve put effort into attaining (read: the path of becoming insecure).

Every day people settle for less than they deserve They are only partially living or at best living a partial life Every human being has the potential for greatness Bo Bennett, Bo Bennett quotes, rego's life quotes, Bo Bennett, deserving quotes, deserve quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur

At the end of the day it’s YOU who knows what efforts your putting in. It’s YOU who knows how much time you’ve put into going after your milestones. It’s YOU who knows what you’ve been through, what you’re going through, and where you want to go.

Don’t let anyone ever dictate that to you.

don't let anyone ever make you feel like you don't deserve what you want 10 things i hate about you,10 things I hate about you quotes, rego's life quotes,, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, deserve quotes, do you deserve it quotes, you deserve it quotes, life, willpower, will power, free will

Because this deserves reiteration.

This is for the millennials, the 90s and the 80s kids.

You may not have the job security, the house, the car, the holidays, the balanced salary to living expense ratio, the opportunities your parents had when they were younger, you may not have all of that JUST YET

…and it may seem a little harder to acquire those things in today’s time…

…and well shit, it is, with the way multinationals are making application processes for people increasingly unnecessarily long and complex…

…bending people over and trying to get them to take it up the @ss with no lube, by offering far-less-than square deals…

….essentially looking at humans as actual resources, rather than people.

Funny thing is while others are trying to dictate to you whether or not you deserve something, if we stripped away modern civilisation and tried our hand at something like growing a garden, there is a higher and near concrete chance nature itself would effortlessly allow us to reap the harvest of the effort we put in, compared to some people these days.

Notice how the term “personnel department” changed to “human resources”? Yeah. Worse thing to ever happen…

…but one thing you do have is willpower, and the right to believe in yourself.

If you’re putting in the effort; getting those top grades in university; doing the daily grind as entrepreneur; or making an effort to make your salary work for you, for something you want that’s bigger than you, bigger than the life you have now; no one but YOU, has the right to ask…

“Do you deserve it?”

Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself Give yourself peace of mind You deserve to be happy You deserve delight Hannah Arendt, Hannah Arendt quotes, rego's life quotes, Hannah Arendt, deserving quotes, deserve quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur

Musings Episode 73: Come Back Stronger…

Well…it’s been a while.

The kind of “I’m just going out for cigarettes” while, where you bump into the person 3 years later and have that awkward reunion.

Except, in this situation there’s no child.

Or woman.

Just the fans.

Alright – maybe this won’t be *that* awkward.

So why the long break – well, I needed a break – as in, I needed to rethink the meaning of everything I was doing. These past few years I’ve been reflecting on what’s *missing* from Rego’s Life.

I covered a lot of life subjects before, but somehow, something always felt like it was missing. So I stepped away.

Sometimes when you’re too close to something, you can’t see the answer that’s right in front of you.

I stepped away…to come back stronger. And that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

Musings Episode 73: Come Back Stronger…

Under pressure would I fold and disappear or would I show everyone that when bad things happen you fight drew brees, come back stronger quotes, drew brees quotes, rego's life quotes, rego's life, comeback quotes, stronger quotes, rego's life musings episode 73 come back stronger, musings episode 73 come back stronger rego's life

Things will be a bit different.

A bit new.

Sometimes gritty.

The old favorites will still be around – no worries there.

But like anything that matures with age they’ll be better, more seasoned.

Speaking of coming back stronger, that’s actually the topic of this episodic musing.

Most people at some point have some sort of setbacks or hardships they go through in life – in any aspect of life. It could be financial, business, academic, family (or any other type of relationship), but a hardship or challenge nonetheless.

The type that can knock a person off their feet – a K.O. so to speak.

The question when that happens though is “what now?”

What are you going to do about it?

Are you going to lay there on the mat, stuck in between conscious and unconscious, hearing the world go on around you and give up the will to get back up?

Or are you going to come back stronger?

Sometimes people don’t always recover instantly.

Sometimes it takes additional training and a few more fights to come back stronger.

I remember watching the movie “Rocky Balboa” a while back, the 2006 version, where Stallone says (while in character) something to his on-screen son:

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!”

The one line that really stuck out in my mind was this:

It ain't about how hard you hit It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward How much you can take and keep moving forward, It ain't about how hard you hit It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward How much you can take and keep moving forward rocky balboa quotes, rego's life quotes, rocky balboa 2006, musings episode 73 come back stronger, rego's life musings episode 73 come back stronger, musings episode 73 come back stronger rego's life, rego's life, rocky balboa quotes, sylvester stallone quotes, rocky quotes

This is probably the best line I’ve heard in a long time, and it really resonated with me after not having watched the film in a while.

No matter how many times life knocks you down, you’ve gotta keep moving forward.

A lot of people get this confused – it’s not about moving up – as I mentioned in one of my previous episodic musings what goes up must come down – but what moves forward, well that’s an entirely different beast all together.

And like in rugby, or American football, life can dish out a lot of hits at you…but you’ve gotta look at them as lessons.

You are either getting better or worse but you are never staying the same drew brees come back stronger quotes rego's life quotes, come back stronger quotes, drew brees quotes, rego's life quotes, rego's life, musings episode 73 come back stronger, rego's life musings episode 73 come back stronger, musings episode 73 come back stronger rego's life

This can be a hard concept to wrap your head around, especially when you’re in the thick of it, but by lessons I mean opportunities to fortify yourself for next time, or the next obstacle you might meet.

The same way a rugby player trains so he becomes harder and harder to knock down, is the same way a person can train for the game called life.

And another thing – don’t look for “alright.”

I’m usually not one to talk politics a lot but ever since the whole Brexit and Trump ordeal it seems like xenophobia has exploded in some parts of the world, and I hear some people saying “everything’s gonna be alright” to others.

Well, I’ve got one think to say to that.

Screw that saying.

It’s a crappy way to cope with a situation.

You think during the World Wars that soldiers settled for “alright” every time they laid out a battle plan? You think that “everything’s gonna be alright” speech really settled their hearts and eliminated their fear, when they were out there, being shot at?

During the WW’s they fought for more than “alright” – they fought with the thought of getting back home to a better life – despite the fact politicians were pulling their strings.

They fought because they had hopes for a future that contained more than just “alright.”

They fought in hopes that their offspring wouldn’t have to fight wars if they didn’t choose to, but come back stronger, and better – not go soft and become indifferent to what was happening around them.

And most of all, I’m pretty damn sure they thought that their sacrifices made would be a reminder to future generations to grow wise, and not accept life, or another human being for that matter, to just walk all over them.

They fought for an “everything’s gonna be awesome future”.

Not an “alright” one.

A lot of what makes up this thing called life involves other lives in it…and with the way things have been going, it seems that sadly, those lives seem to think they can intrude on other lives.

But in the words of Epictetus, and to paraphrase him slightly, to attempt to control the will of another person takes tremendous effort, or sacrifice. It goes against he law of nature, dictating someone’s future to them.

So don’t just roll over and let someone dictate your free will.

There’s another great line from Rocky Balboa (2006) I think I should leave you guys with:

Don’t settle for “everything’s going to be alright” – go after how you want things to be – go after “everything’s going to be GREAT. FANTASTIC. AWESOME. AMAZING. SPECTACULAR….or insert any other more than satisfactory adjective here.

If you're willing to go through all the battling you got to go through to get where you want to get who's got the right to stop you I mean maybe some of you guys got something you never finished something you really want to do something you never said to someone something and you're told no even after you paid your dues who's got the right to tell you that who nobody rocky balboa quotes, rego's life quotes, rocky balboa 2006, come back stronger quotes, rego's life musings episode 73 come back stronger, musings episode 73 come back stronger rego's life, rego's life, sylvester stallone quotes

When you get hit hard in life, don’t just lay there and accept that everything will be alright.

Get off that mat and keep moving forward in the direction YOU want, how YOU want things to go.

Forget all the doubters Forget all the critics Is there satisfaction in proving them wrong Sure but I don’t want to give those people the gratification of even dwelling on their words that long There’s a motivator much more powerful than doubt I play in honor of those who believe in me drew brees, drew brees quotes, come back stronger quotes, rego's life quotes, rego's life musings episode 73 come back stronger, musings episode 73 come back stronger rego's life, rego's life

A diamond blade cuts through rock only after being forged under pressure.

Come back stronger.

And as always…

Musings Episode 54: Persistence…

Yeah, I know….this one’s up super late. This weekend was a little crazy, but I’d rather have delayed this post than offered up something inferior – after all, quality is key, not quantity.

So anyway, just thought it’d be a great idea to continue in the train of thought on some key factors that speed people along to their success – one of the biggest things being persistence.

Musings Episode 54: Persistence…

episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, Persistence, Rego's Life Episode 54 Persistence, Regos Life, regoslife, Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich, Rego, Thought, Philosophy, As Long As We Are Persistence In Our Pursuit Of Our Deepest Destiny We Will Continue To Grow. We Cannot Choose The Day Or Time When We Will Fully Bloom It Happens In Its Own Time Denis Waitley, denis waitley, persistence quotes, quotes

One of the biggest things that lead to failure in pursuit of anything is lack of persistence…and to be quite frank, it can be avoided so easily. It’s just a matter of changing perspective and really recognizing within yourself how much you want to accomplish your goal.

There’s a great quote by Earl Nightingale…

Don't let the fear of time it will take to accomplish something earl nightingale rego's life quotes, earl nightingale quotes, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, Persistence, Rego's Life Episode 54 Persistence, Regos Life, regoslife, Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich, Rego, Thought, Philosophy , persistence quotes, quotes

The starting point, and basis of persistence boils down to willpower. When you combine will power with desire, there’s no stopping you. The key to always remember is whatever you pursue, make sure it benefits all who partake. I’ve said this before but it deserves reiterating – no – absolutely no wealth can long endure unless built from truth and justice.

Persistence has to be both conscious and subconscious – you’ve gotta remember, this is YOUR dream or goal. Whether it’s learning to be the best goal keeper in soccer, or turning that little part time sandwich shop business you’ve been building after your regular day job into a full time restaurant, the responsibility of your future and the goals you have planned for it boil down to YOUR will power, YOUR desire, YOUR faith, and YOUR PERSISTENCE.

It’s really all on you. You can have encouragement from others – but at the end of the day, it’s you who has to persist with those little habits you have to turn consistent. Doing one little thing a day towards your goal makes a bigger difference than just sitting there doing nothing, day in, day out, or worse – theorizing.

The same way so many people have dedication or feel an obligation to get up and go to their job every day, the same way people make sure to eat lunch/dinner on time, is the same way you should be persistent and dedicated to pursuing whatever goal you have, business, personal, or romantic related.

AMBITION IS THE PATH TO SUCCESS PERSISTENCE IS THE VEHICLE YOU ARRIVE IN WILLIAM EARDLEY IV, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, Persistence, Rego's Life Episode 54 Persistence, Regos Life, regoslife, Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich, Rego, Thought, Philosophy , persistence quotes, quotes

It’s all about repetitive effort.

I remember getting into web design and learning about both the hardware and software side of computers when I was a teen. There was a Goodwill that sold old computers for cheap, and had them by the dozen. A lot of times the mouse and keyboard they’d throw in for free.

Through desire and persistence, backed by will power, I learned a lot more about computers than people twice my age did. No, I didn’t have state of the art equipment, but the quality of equipment wasn’t the education…because even with all the “high quality” equipment, everything starts somewhere with basics.

If you learn the basic concept of things, that’s how you grow to understand how many other things work. A strong foundation is key. This is why persistence is so important.

You’ve gotta be persistent in reaching your goal, even if it means it may take a bit of time and education first.

You’ve gotta be persistent in getting better at something you’ve been working on, even if you’ve not been able to break past the “plateau” you find yourself to have reached.

You’ve gotta be persistent in attaining the lifestyle you want, even if it means holding your current job and working on your business after or before work.

PERSISTENCE IS TO THE CHARACTER OF MAN AS CARBON IS TO STEEL NAPOLEON HILL Rego's Life Quotes, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, Persistence, Rego's Life Episode 54 Persistence, Regos Life, regoslife, Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich, Rego, Thought, Philosophy , persistence quotes, quotes

The easiest way to gain persistence all starts with taking little, tiny steps, everyday. Those little steps turn into larger strides, then light jogging…running….then sprinting.

Eventually the “great feat” called persistence comes just as natural to you as brushing your teeth or eating lunch. It becomes habit. A part of your life…and it feels weird if skip it or ignore it – the same way skipping a shower before going to bed feels.

So no matter where you’re at in accomplishing your goal, as long as you’ve started somewhere and are on a consistent basis working towards it, you’ve already mastered some if not all of the entire concept of persistence.

…and if you haven’t started, what the hell are you waiting for? Do it now.

Remember – persistence is a state of mind. There are 8 factors that are integral parts of persistence…all of which I’ll share with you in the next “Make it Mondays” post. So stay sharp, look out for both it and the next Business Tools Tuesdays post, and of course…

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 52: Desire.

Today has been a truly special day. I went out for the day to celebrate this blog, and my company Rego’s Life. Because as of today, this 52nd post, is an anniversary post – an anniversary marking one year to date, that I’ve been writing the Musings on RegosLife.com.

This whole week, is an anniversary week, really – for Quote Wednesdays, and For The Weekenders…but today is the most special day. Because 52 episodes ago is where it all started. Where I decided to gain the courage, and enthusiasm to write and express my thoughts not just to friends, or at small gatherings, not just during writing classes or publicly speaking – but with the entire world.

I’m proud to say I’ve consistently written a musing every week, without fail – and humble enough to say that all the inspiration, all the ideas, all the wording and expressions, were a gift from what I call Infinite Intelligence; Ruler of The Universe, Master of All Masters. A gift I chose to take heed to, and grab from the ether…but that’s not the only one I’d like to thank today.

Well then, shall we? Let’s begin.

I wanted to talk specifically on something that was lightly touched on a couple of weeks ago, both on here and the official site. That something is desire.

For the better part of Friday morning and the entirety of Saturday, I was what one would call devouring the contents of a book I bought years ago – Think and Grow Rich: The Original Classic, by Napoleon Hill, The Unabridged Version.

The book was originally printed in 1937, but many, if not ALL of the principles taught in it still apply to modern day times. Though they have revised it since then, it’s the ORIGINAL version you want to get, as this is one book you don’t want any alterations of.

It helped me in university, and continues to help me today every time I go to pick it up, and read it again. There’s a chapter in the book Napoleon Hill advises all of his readers to read again once they’ve finished the entire book, and continue to read until they fully understand it in its entirety – Chapter 2: Desire.

Desire is something that’s looked quite oddly upon nowadays. Something frowned upon by some, and encouraged by others. If anyone saw the movie “Mad Money,” there’s a certain scene in it that was both funny, yet makes me cringe.

It’s when the main character who’s a housewife of a guy who lost his job is trying to convince one of her co-workers into “recycling” old money. The co-worker, Nina, makes a clear statement to which Bridget, the housewife, retorts :

Nina Brewster: I don’t want things I can’t have.

Bridget Cardigan: Do you live in America?

Reading Think and Grow Rich again it really puts that last line into perspective. The U.S. was built off of many factors, one of those being desire. Desire was one of the KEY factors, along with decision, definite purpose, faith, fearlessness, organized planning, imagination, persistence, and many other factors that gave the colonists of America freedom from the British.

The same goes for when Lincoln wanted to enforce the Proclamation of Emancipation, and when industrialist America was being built – thanks to capitalism, imagination, proper planning, and specialized knowledge. Without a desire to see change, progress, or any forward thinking movement, many countries would not be built to where they are today, nor have history worth mentioning in books.

Men like Abraham Lincoln, Samuel Adams, Gandhi, and even Napoleon Bonaparte were all fueled by desire and purpose, desire being something they never let die within themselves, through the strength of persistence. No matter how many times they may have encountered failure or met temporary defeat.

there is one quality which one must possess to win and that is definiteness of purpose the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to possess it napoleon hill quote, 52nd post anniversary, rego's life, episodic musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, Musings Episode 52 Desire, Rego's Life Musings Episode 52 Desire, Thought, Napoleon Hill, Rego, History, one year anniversary rego's life, think and grow rich the original classic napoleon hill, think and grow rich, desire, Rego's Life, desire quotes, desire, quotes on desire, napoleon hill desire, think and grow rich the original classic

Desire can be a tool used to fulfill both good and bad things…but desire is something that every human being must continue to have in order to live the type of lives they want and accomplish the type of goals they have.

It was desire that gave me the strength to persevere in building up Rego’s Life, first starting with this Personal Blog, then the Official Site, and finally Rego’s Life Store.

It was desire to spread positivity, that gave me the determination to turn Rego’s Life Official Site into a place where knowledge and information could be sourced and utilized to the best and most positive ability for all who came across it.

It was the desire for the ability to keep all of that information free to the public, which prompted me to go all in, quit all things automotive and real estate related, assemble a team, and start Rego’s Life Store and it’s main branch RLS Web Creations™, so that I could fully dedicate my time to writing and sharing all the information you see on RegosLife.com, regoslife.eu, and things you don’t see that happen offline as well.

Musings Episode 48: Quality vs. Quantity

I remember when I first read a particular quote of Oscar Wilde’s from his “The Picture of Dorian Gray” book…

nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing oscare wilde, Rego's Life, musings episode 48 Quality vs. Quantity, live the quality life

…and how it felt realizing that this simple quote put everything friends and I have ever spit balled about into perfect explanation.

Often people brag about how much something costs them, or the name brand it is. Yet to question whether or not that said thing is quality or not is rarely ever acted upon.

Would you rather have something that’s “okay” and cost a lot of something else, or would you rather have something that’s well made, of value, without the “big” name brand association and price tag?

Would you rather have a lot of people you know, but not many you trust, or a few people you know, all of whom you can trust?

Would you rather have a lot of acquaintances, or a few genuine friends?

A friend of mine used to love buying Ralph Lauren for women. The cuts were perfect for her, as she was of slender profile, tall. Then something changed. She visited me after shopping one day and plopped down her bags. “Look at this! Tell me if you notice the difference.”

nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing oscare wilde, Rego's Life, musings episode 48 Quality vs. Quantity, live the quality life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 48 Quality vs. Quantity, oscar wilde, live a quality life, quality vs quantity, business and economy, Rego's Life

The price was the same but the quality changed significantly. The cuts became short and wide, uneven panels, and while most of the fabric remained the same, something was different that I couldn’t put my finger on.

“Umm,” I hesitated, “well, the cuts look different,” I continued putting one shirt up to her for comparison. “They’re shorter, for one…and wider.”

“That’s what I said!” she said frustrated.

Why was she frustrated? Because here she was, a once dedicated patron of the Ralph Lauren brand, and now she was finding that the brand she put so much trust in was slowly changing.

Keep in mind, in being tall and slender finding clothing that are well fitted is a task for her. She shopped at a few, very select places that accommodated her needs, and while Ralph Lauren had made excellent cuts in trousers and the like, something had changed for their shirts and blouses.

I myself know that Ralph Lauren makes many different excellent lines, from Black Label to Blue Label and more…

…and she could’ve easily tried another line of theirs. But the particular convenience of walking into your regular Ralph Lauren store is something she very much enjoyed.

She could’ve very well shopped online or some other alternative, but what frustrated her the most was the fact that to a degree the brand’s quality factor had dropped, while the quantity factor in price remained the same.

…and this is where people are sometimes forced to choose, quality or quantity? Brand loyalty or going elsewhere to seek better?

quality over quantity steve jobs, nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing oscare wilde, Rego's Life, musings episode 48 Quality vs. Quantity, live the quality life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 48 Quality vs. Quantity, oscar wilde, live a quality life, quality vs quantity, business and economy, Rego's Life

This could be looked at in an opposite manner as well. Sometimes buying the cheapest isn’t always the best idea when you’re looking for something to last.

Being rather particular about what kinds of electronics I buy, and the shoes on my feet, the type of threads on my back and whether or not they’re made of natural resources or polyester, I’ve found myself lately getting more and more into organic cotton.

Researching an item before buying it is always a good idea. I remember a huge mistake made a while back. Usually, shopping online for sparring gear in general – isn’t a natural habit of mine. There’s a need to feel the gear, inspect the material, plus many other things.

But this was back when new to MMA and more of an avid fencer.

It occurred to me as a great idea to purchase focus mitts on the internet. Why not with all the positives. Great price – inexpensive. Huge mistake – HUGE. When they arrived, they were horrible. My sparring partner couldn’t use them properly. They were uncomfortable, hard as rocks, no proper wrist support and because of their lack of flexibility almost broke my sparring buddies elbows.

It was a purchase I regretted but had no one to blame but myself. The focus mitts were a “bargain” I thought. Like they say though, you get what you pay for sometimes.

Then there are those other times where like magic you find quality and a decent price. You find VALUE.

This is the middle ground area. This used to be what a lot of companies offered their customers – value. Not “what’s the cheapest manufacturing cost” but “what’s the best value we can give to our customers, at a great price, and superior quality?”

Knowing the value of something is much different than knowing the price – guess that explains why I never was any good at that game “The Price is Right.”

When you start talking value, great value, you start seeing things a bit differently.

This means across the board. Materialistic items, experiences, relationships, and even thoughts.

It’s good to be rather selective of what you buy. Activities you partake in. People you associate with. Thoughts you think.

By taking the time to be selective, you’ll soon start realizing the difference between the amount of things you have, people you know, experiences you engage in, and thoughts you think, and the quality, the VALUE in each one of those things.

You’ll think twice before buying those pair of mass produced shoes – and realize you can contribute back to your community by buying from your local shoe maker for the same price.

You’ll think twice before getting into certain relationshipsplatonic or romantic – and analyze whether or not that particular person has the same outlook on life (negative/positive) as you or not.

associate yourself with people of good quality booker t washington, nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing oscare wilde, Rego's Life, musings episode 48 Quality vs. Quantity, live the quality life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 48 Quality vs. Quantity, oscar wilde, live a quality life, quality vs quantity, business and economy, Rego's Life

You’ll think twice before engaging in certain activities – and think to yourself how that specific activity has an impact in your life.

Everything you do will become a conscious action, and in turn you’ll genuinely be giving yourself the quality lifestyle you’ve always talked about – instead of just listening to the dictations of society.

You’ll understand that it’s not just quality vs. quantity, but value as well.

As always…

Stay awesome. 😉

Musings Episode 45: Show Some Cooperation, Life Isn’t Hard…

I haven’t watched TV in years, but lately I’ve been watching a lot of documentaries and what not on Netflix, mostly regarding animals.

One in particular most recently was about blue fin tuna, and the rising problem about them almost becoming extinct due to the mass craze for sushi.

thoughts about life, thoughts on life, thoughts for life, good thoughts about life, deep thoughts about life, thoughts of life, rego's life, musings episode 45 show some cooperation life's not hard, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, thoughts

Really when you think about it, this ties in a lot with cooperation. Cooperation from mankind, and the conflict of mankind with nature.

Nature has a kind of “autopilot” feature when it comes to things. In each animal there’s instilled a certain coding, where they kind of know what they have to carry out at birth. Sure, their parents teach them as you teach your kids – but they learn at a much faster rate, and they’re kicked from their parents “nest” at a much younger age. Long story short…the parents don’t ever have to worry about dishing out cash for a kid’s college education.

They learn independence.

They go on instinct, learn to fight, and have some type of “defence” mechanism built-in for predators or any kind of danger.

They’re taught to survive.

They have no currency, no government or laws of man, nothing but nature’s laws.

The same way we have families and groups of friends, animals have packs and groups they travel in.

The only difference is somehow, it seems more and more animals have their shit together more than humans…albeit humans being gifted with free will.

Humans are notated as being at the top of the food chain – we may not be as fast as the cheetah or as clever or sharp as the bluefin tuna, but we’re supposed to be the most intelligent creatures on earth.

In saying that – you seriously have to wonder why the heck the bluefin tuna is almost extinct – actually you don’t, it all boils down to one thing – a little thing called “moderation.”

I keep saying this – you can do anything, drink anything, and eat anything as long as it’s in moderation.

Moderation ties in a lot with cooperation.

There was a time before the global market burst open at the seams, where produce was only available in season, meat was only sold according to optimal growth and breeding times, and seafood was only available dependent upon how skilled the fisherman was.

It made things a little more “hard to get” but it allowed nature to run its course and “refresh” itself so to speak for another work cycle – the same way humans like to “refresh” themselves over the weekend or on their days off after working 40 odd hours a week.

Heck, there was even a time when farmers knew to let the land “rest” for a few years before laying seed again, and not growing just any old seed they’re paid to [for a short-term buck] in order to avoid long-term issues.

It was the purest form of cooperation in the most basic sense.

These days it seems that’s all gone out the window. Or going. Your choice of words.

Humans aren’t cooperating with nature, and what’s worse is nor are they cooperating with each other.

I’ve been at this lifestyle game for so long now that the same way a “gym rat” can’t comprehend why people don’t work out and stay fit, my brain can’t comprehend why it’s so hard for the general public to understand the gravity of the situation in regard to taking small steps to make life easier.

Let’s be clear here – I’m no activist. You won’t find me tree hugging or laying down in front of a wrecking ball to save a historical building – I’m not one for extremism…I don’t think it’s my job to save the world, and I don’t think it’s my job to shift each individual’s way of thinking. I offer the advice but it’s up to you to take it.

I do believe though that people could pick up some better habits, and maybe take care of mother nature the same way she takes care of us.

I do believe people could take small everyday steps to make the world a better place.

As for everyone’s way of thinking, I do believe that it doesn’t hurt to offer a new way of looking at things, hence why I started this blog along with my other two websites. I’m not here to shove anything down anyone’s throat – if I wanted that, I’d get into the stock market.

I will say people can do a bit better as human beings – the easiest way to do that is cooperation…the funny thing about cooperation is though, it’s gone about in all the wrong way today.

There’s a certain passive aggressiveness that’s developed in some countries in today’s modern time…cooperation is carried out when it shouldn’t be, people take answers and don’t ask questions, the art of time being taken out to relate to another person has practically gone out the window.

Life doesn’t have to be hard – in fact, life isn’t hard.

Time is changing. Energy is changing. You have animals on different levels of the food chain getting along with each other – you read about the stories in the news more and more.

Yet more and more humans are creating their own levels in the food chain amongst their own race – the human race.

Life isn’t hard.

There was a time when people cooperated, vulnerabilities were known but not exploited, and simple consideration and relation for your fellow-man was well-known.

There was also a time when people were barbaric, ruthless, exploitative, and complete disregard for another human being was considered normal all because of the color of someone else’s skin.

Now there’s the issues of right to self-defence. In my opinion? Everyone should have a right to self-defence.

Issues of sexuality, gender identification, etc, etc. In my opinion? What do I care? It’s your life, live it how you want to, just be fucking HAPPY.

Why must the majority dictate? Why can’t people agree to disagree?

Put simply, both the good and the bad sides have been seen with humans.

People have seen all aspects. Humans will always be ever evolving. There’s no changing that.

People have seen and documented enough history to learn that hate breeds hate, love takes courage, and war is a business – just like religion and politics.

Yet there’s a certain laziness that’s developed where although many have seen and learnt about these things, they still refuse to pull their own weight.

They want to state their own opinions, or one better they join the band wagon on other opinions, but rarely anymore do people take the time out to actually THINK on WHY their opinion is that – or why their thinking is that.

Sometimes, negativity is so…pointless. It’s such a waste of space, time and energy…but it still has a purpose.

I know that in order to know the good, you must know the bad. In order to know what you do want, you have to come to know what you don’t.

Negativity is a TOOL – that is supposed to be used for balance…but really, once you understand why it’s there, why use it? Life is all about going after that GOOD FEELING, creating, sharing.

Why is it there are so many blogs, articles, stories, tv shows, movies, etc, etc that focus on negative shit? It’s like a curtain – you just get wrapped up in that shit and then it’s hard to see the light…you lose both sight and track of your original purpose here on earth – to be HAPPY. To COOPERATE with your fellow-man.

I’m not saying tolerate shit – but seriously, people need to really assess situations and stand up for what’s RIGHT to stand up for, in their own lives. It’s about picking your battles – and not just picking the ones you think you can win.

It’s about principle. Consideration. Looking at all the angles….and like I keep saying, cooperation.

It’s no wonder the aliens fly right past us.

The animal kingdom has their shit together more than the human race.

This isn’t a rant…but this needs to be said. I just thoroughly believe that life doesn’t have to be hard.

People don’t have to be underpaid.

They don’t have to be bullied.

They don’t have to just “accept things” because that’s the way they are. I fucking hate that saying “it is what is is”…no. It’s NOT. It’s what YOU MAKE IT.

Stop striving for mediocrity.

Only go against the grain WHEN IT’S VALID.

Stop fussing over stupid shit.

Look at the bigger picture.

Focus on your own LIFE – reincarnation or not the one you’re living is the ONLY ONE YOU HAVE NOW.

and for fuck’s sake…stop giving each other such a hard time.

The human race is embarrassing themselves.

Again I say, this isn’t a rant…but this needs to be said.

We can be better.

People have intelligence.

They have governments, currency, law, infrastructure, medicine, modern technology, and FREE WILL…yet STILL they’re not using all this awesomeness EFFECTIVELY and to its maximum potential? You’ve gotta be kidding me.

As a race, humans have got to do better than that.

Come on…let’s tighten up.

Hope everyone’s having an awesome Sunday.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 44: Walter Mitty Had it Right…

Anyone seen the movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty?

If you haven’t yet….GOOO.

Seriously. I mean it. Book your tickets here and run out of the house to go see it.

What I thought to be a remake of the original 1947 version (which according to IMDB it seems it was), this movie focuses on EXACTLY what I have been writing about ever since I started this blog…and of all the movies I’ve seen, just jumped to #1 in my rating book, right up there with The Wolf of Wall Street.

Ben Stiller both directed and produced this film – and due to those reasons I believe this gave him TREMENDOUS freedom in creating/becoming his character the way HE wanted Mitty to be seen. By far the best acting I’ve seen from him to date. Stiller, you’re awesome.

The whole premise of the movie is simple – it’s about an ordinary guy who’s got a knack for developing negatives for LIFE magazine. He’s been at the game for 16 years now and really knows his stuff – but ironically, though developing thousands and thousands of photos of numerous places around the world…has never actually gone a single place that’s mentionable or interesting himself.

Put simply – Walter (Stiller) has never lived LIFE. Because of the fact his life is so repetitive, over the years Walter has increasingly become more and more active in day dreaming or “zoning out,” often beyond his control – a clear sign the poor bastard’s mind can’t even come to terms with his monotonous day to day life.

walter mitty, the secret life of walter mitty, secret life of walter mitty, walter mitty movie, walter mitty summary, walter mitty story walter mitty movie, life of walter mitty, rego's life, musings episode 44 walter mitty had it right

Until one day, he’s forced to get out there and explore – not for himself – but to save his job.

The movie takes a minute or so to pick up and gain momentum – but the ending leaves you literally FEELING every single moment…something that rarely happens these days unless it’s a good action film (in my opinion).

All in all it’s a great film that anyone can go and see.

It really hits home on important issues like how people don’t just need to – but deserve to live the life they desire – and how quickly and often the day to day activities that have been built into the majority of society’s routine often make people forget that they’ve gotta CREATE a life – and not just live one.

What’s the difference between creating and living a life? Find out more in a “Make it Mondays” post I wrote on my official site.

Mitty is portrayed in flawless fashion – someone who at first when pondering over the “mission” thinks “yeah right” or “it’s impossible,” non-chalantly brushing it off until his office crush encourages him bit by bit.

Even when he makes it to Greenland, Mitty still has extreme reservations.

Then slowly, you see something happen – he slips more and more into the thought, the idea – he starts embracing it and soon one action leads to another, like a car that’s jump started on a downhill slope as it picks up momentum.

Pretty soon he’s doing more, living life, more than he ever did before – and has no intention of looking back. One simple mishap in his job causes him to take a leap forward in his life – and pretty soon, the involuntary zone-outs stop. Why? Because he’s started living life..and stopped suppressing what his mind wanted his body to do for YEARS.

…and this is what I mean about doing it for yourself – living your life for YOU – and no one else.

Humans aren’t meant to be creatures of repetition. People are one of the most intelligent beings on the face of the earth, yet limit their potential. So. Goddamn. Much.

It’s time for it to stop. It’s time for you to get out there and change your lifestyle. Live your life.

Like I keep saying time and time again, if a person can get up and get something done for their boss, or their job, or anything for anyone else EXCEPT themselves – then what in the hell is stopping them from doing it for themselves and themselves ONLY?

No more pacification. No more substituting living your actual life with day dreams or reality TV. Why watch other people live their lives when you can live your own? No more doing something because your head is on the chopping block at your place of work.

You can’t seriously believe that you were just put on this earth to work a job and build someone else’s dream, can you? I didn’t think so.

I’ve seen countless clients get things accomplished for everyone but themselves – and the first thing I do is (figuratively) throw a book at them to get that thinking unlearnt. It takes work, it takes persistence, and it takes perseverance and preparation…but it’s worth it. It’s priceless, if it means living a life you can say was WORTH living.

It’s time to get out there and do something for you. Start small if you have to, then go big…but the main thing is to make your absolute best effort your ONLY effort. Don’t settle for less – you deserve the best.

Look out for tomorrow’s Make it Mondays post on my official site – I’ll be giving away tips on a MAJOR aspect of how to get the momentum going towards your ideal lifestyle.

As always…

Stay awesome.
