Musings Episode 90: Stand Your Ground, Millennials…

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I generally don’t like opining on politics and what not but…

Well…I guess let’s just get right to it.

Musings Episode 90: Stand Your Ground, Millennials…

I do really great when I’m around like-minded people.

Really great.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll understand exactly what I mean by like-minded.

People that don’t like when people try and walk all over them – and people who don’t try to walk all over people.

A friend and I were discussing the meme culture that’s grown over the years and how really, when you think about it, there are an alarming rate of memes that older people would consider “dark/depressing humor”.

But let’s be honest…rather than focusing on that – isn’t that screaming a message loud and clear?

People’s human security in the developed world (like economic, for instance), is clearly not as great as politicians are pretending like it is.

We live in an age where we’re bombarded with advertising – it’s on YouTube, Pandora, Spotify, SoundCloud, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook etc, etc…you really can’t get away from it.

Advertisements quietly streamlined into your “social” media accounts, looking as if they’re part of your timelines or the videos you watch.

Always suggesting to you what to buy, what to eat, drink, in what way life should be relatable.

Sorry but…that last bit isn’t relatable at all.

Don’t get me wrong – I get that ads were always around, especially on TV and radio, and I understand that services that offer free listening/watching need ads to pay for what they serve up to you, but these days it all seems like it’s so much more…intense.

Not in a good way – in a pushy way.

Ads that scream at you across the screen or through your ear buds with enthusiastic messages of “lease this! buy that!“.

…but the damn irony of it all is that half the time these messages are being pounded into a generation’s head that’s struggling just to pay the rent or have a nice holiday.

Ads are being pushed across as if every person being advertised to, has the disposable income to go and buy everything they’re told to – most of it being useless shit.

“Don’t have cash? Just use credit. Get yourself a store card,” they suggest.

It’s like leased cars.

Yeah alright, you get to drive a different car every so many months but…who the hell came up with the bright idea it’s cool to pay for something you have to give back and get penalized for overusing because you “went over your mileage” when you do give it back, because you fancied going on a road trip?

I’m still a believer of quality over quantity, and buying cars over leasing.

I’m not waffling here – I’m getting to a point.

What I’m trying to say is, I feel like with the way the “developed” world has become so commercialized, older generations are coming down a little hard on the millennials as to why they don’t have their shit together.

Since the Global Financial Crisis of 2008/9, we’ve been living in a time where every electronic device is practically blaring at people in their teens and 20s that they should be living life a certain way – then ironically not providing adequate income or opportunities for them to live those certain lifestyles.

So you’ve basically got a few choices.

Either A) become an entrepreneur, B) sign up for a shit job, or C) go to college/university to not have to fight as hard to get a good job and pray you don’t get axed because you didn’t stroke your boss’ ego that day.

I’ve had the luxury (said with extreme sarcasm – sometimes ignorance truly is bliss) of having been around the block.

I'm not the type that's going to sit and preach to people if they don't need it just because I've been around the block a few times Queen Latifah, been around the block quotes, Queen Latifah quotes, Rego's Life quotes, Queen Latifah, Musings Episode 90 Stand Your Ground Millennials, Rego's Life Musings Episode 90 Stand Your Ground Millennials, Musings Episode 90 Stand Your Ground Millennials Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regos life, regoslife, Stand your ground, stand up for yourself, millennials vs baby boomers, millennials, musings Rego's Life, Rego's Life musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur Rego's Life, Rego's Life episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, don't take shit from people, entrepreneurs, when work sucks, how to quit a job you hate, stand up for what you believe in, dank memes, dark humor memes, sarcasm, coping mechanisms, coping mechanism, excited, afraid, overjoyed, logic, emotions, consumerism, feed the machine nickelback, nickelback feed the machine, Poetree Seed, Poetree Seed spoken word, Poetree Seed peace doesn't profit poem

…so at some point in my life experienced all three, before settling firmly into the role of entrepreneur.

And guys – I’m not gonna sit and preach to you it’s all sunshine and rainbows.

It’s not always easy. Some days, especially in the beginning, it’s a whirlwind and a fight between logic and emotions.

Actually scratch that – at some point, even when you see things fall into place, it still feels like a whirlwind sometimes.

You’re excited. You’re afraid. You’re overjoyed. You fumble. You fuck up.

You think it’s worth it. You think it’s totally not worth it.

Then you remember why you started.

But one thing I’ll say I’ve learnt from being an entrepreneur in comparison to having a job – is learning to stand your ground.

When you’re in a job, you’re dealing with other people’s egos.

Other people’s egos who are considered your “supervisors”.

When you’re an entrepreneur, standing your ground means you get to dig your heels into the ground and fucking PUSH for better – and no one can really say shit about it.

When you’re in a job, standing your ground can sometimes mean you’re going to piss a few people off – whether you care or not is entirely up to you – but it can swing both ways.

Either you gain more respect, or your head gets closer to the chopping block.

I was raised to be one stubborn, head strong son of a bitch.

I’ve realized over the years it’s probably the biggest blessing in my life – A) because it sure as shit does help a lot when it comes to getting through my workouts….and B) because honestly, I probably would’ve abandoned the thought of being an entrepreneur long ago.

Circling back around to millennials – they get so much shit.

They really do. Especially from some baby boomers.

I remember watching a political talk with Trae Crowder some months back where the host of the show said “millennials are a very confused generation”.

You’d be confused too growing up in a time where you witnessed the biggest financial downturn since The Great Depression of the 1920s.

Back when that happened you had people trying to cope with alcohol, suicide, and any other means.

These days you get people coping through substance abuse, depression, suicide….and then joking about serious life situations through fucking memes.

You really think that can’t tip either way?

Healthily pushing back or just turning completely nihilistic?

Which pretty much brings me around to the point that in order for things to start changing, people have to start standing their ground.

Coping is fine, but it’s only meant to be temporary.

Learning to stand your ground in life can have a huge impact – can you imagine if everyone was so disgusted with the way things are being run they pushed back?

Companies can’t fire everyone.

They’re already making getting a job feel like winning the lottery.I've always been very passionate about not starving to death meme, Musings Episode 90 Stand Your Ground Millennials, Rego's Life Musings Episode 90 Stand Your Ground Millennials, Musings Episode 90 Stand Your Ground Millennials Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regos life, regoslife, Stand your ground, stand up for yourself, millennials vs baby boomers, millennials, musings Rego's Life, Rego's Life musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur Rego's Life, Rego's Life episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, don't take shit from people, entrepreneurs, when work sucks, how to quit a job you hate, stand up for what you believe in, dank memes, dark humor memes, sarcasm, coping mechanisms, coping mechanism, excited, afraid, overjoyed, logic, emotions, consumerism, feed the machine nickelback, nickelback feed the machine, Poetree Seed, Poetree Seed spoken word, Poetree Seed peace doesn't profit poem

Then when you get the job, literally trying to condition you that the harder you work the better you are.

Even Machiavelli’s writings came to the conclusion you push a man too hard after a while he’ll feel like he has nothing left to lose.

There’s also the belief that millennials act entitled.

I wholly disagree with this.

Millennials don’t feel entitled – with globalization and the exponential growth in commercialization, they work more hours than earlier generations ever had to contend with, maybe stopping shy of people who worked in factories that supported the war efforts during WWII.

Despite having more “human rights” laws that have been put in place since that time.

You can’t be entitled if you’re working more hours and getting less pay and zero proper benefits.

You can’t be entitled if you’re given a part-time job and have to have housemates or flat mates because you can’t afford a place of your own.

Don’t even get me started on the B.S. “flexitime” incentive companies have where a person can’t dictate their own schedule.

I read crazy stories about people in their early 20s just up and fucking collapsing because they literally worked themselves to death.

Fucking interns.

That’s entitled?

Really?

What I’m trying to say is – older generations need to stop ignoring what the younger generations have to contend with because of problems passed on.

Younger generations have to avoid succumbing to zoning out from crappy situations or letting their frustrations externalize towards other people.

Don’t let people run you ragged.

Wake up. It’s gonna take a collective effort but wake the fuck up.

Stand your ground. You may get slapped down a few times but they can’t bring everyone to their knees.

A lot of people are already on their knees anyway, with the way corporations are exploiting human security.

Ask yourself – would you rather die standing, or live kneeling at the mercy of others?

You’re not a human resource.

You’re a person.

You have purpose.

Don’t let corporations and consumerism distract you from that.

Don’t “Feed The Machine”.

It may be uncomfortable, but get out of your comfort zone for a minute and just think about it…

Stay cool.

Musings Episode 51: Capture The Moment…

Plans today incline me to get out there and capture some moments with the ol’ Canon camera. Days like these allow me to wind down from work and the company. Capturing moments in time through photography is more important than a person actually realizes.

I’ve had this camera going on about 6 years now and can honestly say there was a point in time where going anywhere without it was incomprehensible. True, there are some moments that are just so timeless, so beautiful they’re not meant to be captured and framed – but then there are those moments that we look back on flipping through a photo album and review our own moments in “history.”

art, capture the moment, episodic musings, History, Musings Episode 51 Capture The Moment, photography, Rego's Life Musings Episode 51 Capture The Moment, Regos Life, regoslife, seize the moment

Come to think of it, I’m not really sure if people still print photos and put them in albums. Though I do use a digital camera in today’s modern time, the feeling of printing out the photos and being able to touch them enables a person to connect with that moment, even years down the road.

Yet nowadays I wonder if people really think about that. If they really think of the impact a photo actually has, when it’s not on their computer screen, in their Facebook albums, or posted up on Instagram.

Hashtagging photos is great and all, though there are certain moments in time you don’t want to share with the world; but instead keep them special and significant, known to only yourself, friends, family, S.O., or whoever else you were with at that exact time.

art, capture the moment, episodic musings, History, Musings Episode 51 Capture The Moment, photography, Rego's Life Musings Episode 51 Capture The Moment, Regos Life, regoslife, seize the moment

Sometimes you just want it to be that moment YOU remember, and not turn something that special into a popularity contest.

Really when you think about it, the same way history books were once written, a photograph is a way of notating your own history. The same way a blog or “diary” (though I never could understand those things) reflect moments past, and a video camera records things said and actions done.

Yet it’s something about a photograph that’s different than writing or recording. It’s the fact that quite literally, a second (or even milisecond) of time has been frozen, captured.

An exact moment, where once wishing you could see it again is made possible, whether it’s that time you were on holiday or that person you used to hang out with. It’s a way of tracking the person you used to be, and the person you’ve become.

art, capture the moment, episodic musings, History, Musings Episode 51 Capture The Moment, photography, Rego's Life Musings Episode 51 Capture The Moment, Regos Life, regoslife, seize the moment

You can determine and evaluate progression, regression, change, additions, and subtractions in your life…a sort of “road map” that time stamps the good, neutral, and bad; but mostly the good and neutral. Though the traditional method of photography is developing a negative in order to obtain the final result, rarely do you ever capture a moment of negativity out of intention.

I think people should take photos, capture the moment, every chance they get. It’s a good way of learning, growing, understanding. Photographs can show you certain things you may not have noticed in that moment; zooming in on details unsaid, air not read.

Every time you look at a photograph, something new should be learned from it. It’s a way of pressing “pause,” and no matter how many years have passed, allowing your memory to press “play,” and resume that memory from where it left off.

It’s a way of reliving a happy moment, even when you yourself aren’t feeling too happy.

Think on that…I’m off to go capture some moments. 😉

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 16: Effective Communication…How to Talk to People in Both Personal and Business

So this weekend I was out with a few people on Saturday night, some new and some I’ve known a while. One thing that caught my attention was the manner in which one of the new people were talking. For a bit of background info while keeping anonymity, this particular person is in the real estate sector, and considered a “real estate guru”.

frabz-Real-Estate-Investor-What-my-friends-think-I-do-What-my-mom-thin-73a8eb

While it seemed they had a knack for closing on sales and acquiring large amounts of cash, their real hiccup was talking in a normal setting. They weren’t shy, no – but overbearing, critical, and constantly shot negs – and no, not the type used to pick up women – but backhanded compliments in general.

douchebag-meme-generator-extremely-cocky-has-small-cock-75ded1

When it came to listening to others talk, he’d comment that while they seemed to know the terminology, they still had a ways to go…”but continue, this is interesting,” he’d say. This repetitive behaviour left the group annoyed and albeit them trying to accommodate and override the awkwardness in recovery from these comments, eventually everyone went their separate ways earlier than intended. Slightly later on a friend and I met up to shoot pool and discuss the evening.

Bankoboev.Ru_bilyard

“Man….” my friend started before breaking the rack, “…that guy was a dick. What planet did he come from expecting people to just be okay with him talking like that? He insulted the whole group almost. What a fucking know-it-all.” It was here I examined the table, trying not to laugh to hard at my buddy’s reaction, while also figuring out the most sensible and logical answer to his question.

jesus-says-meme-generator-jesus-says-stop-being-a-douchebag-you-douchebag-3bca6c

He was justified in his opinion – they guy did act like a total ass, while mostly everyone else was getting acquainted with each other and exchanging view points and opinions on their given businesses/professions, exchanging ideas and thoughts – but never once did anyone, and I do mean anyone but this guy, have the balls to openly point out to another their lack of complete knowledge in any given field that was discussed but not necessarily their own.

So I lined up my shot, thought for a bit, took a sip of my drink and finally answered, “you know…and this is not at all making an excuse for the sod – but while he may know how to close, and have the ‘gift of gab’ when it comes to a sale…he’s clearly lacking in overall social skills…and really, when you think about it – honing in on that skill is what really makes a good businessperson. It has more long term effect, leaving a deeper impression on the mind.”

3247048322_f3097fbe75_z

He nodded, agreeing that’s a critical point in any aspect of life – business, personal, romantic, platonic, you name it….and thinking on this made me want to share a few pointers with you ladies and gents, on how exactly to be a social elite – or, social butterfly, call it what you like. This is going to be slightly different from my usual episodic musings, but I’d like to share – so here goes….

Build up people

….and no, this does not mean kiss ass. Sycophancy and building people up are two completely different things. Building up someone means getting to know someone’s strong points, their desires, their dreams and goals…and most importantly their passions.

Get a person talking about their passions and desires – and you’ve got miles of road to run off of. The rest takes care of itself – because you’ve got someone talking about what they like. Most people go quiet because they’re waiting to talk – rarely do they ever go quiet to listen.

Ernest-Hemingway-quote

This doesn’t mean go completely quiet either – this means really assess what the person is saying, pick a point you’d like to know about/catches your eye (ear?), and engage them in that point.

An example:

Person 1: So you work as a foreign currency exchange trader?
Person 2: Yeah.
Person 1: That seems like an interesting trade – what got you so interested in it?
Person 2: I don’t know – I guess you could say I really like numbers.
Person 1: Same – money and math – the only two international languages 😉
Person 2: Haha, yeah.
Person 1: So what is it about numbers that you like exactly? Forex is a very volatile game – there’s gotta be some type of thrill factor in there…and my guess is you’re definitely the type who stays on their toes. It’s not for everyone.
Person  2: Oh yeah, no joke, it’s fast paced…well I guess you could say I was never really good at English – but Math I always nerded out on…so I guess I like the fact that though it may seem random and volatile – it’s really not, but instead….

130213020751-couples-lucy-ricky-horizontal-gallery

You see how that interaction flowed…? Person 1 showed interest, intrigue, and a natural engagement in what person 2 did as a profession. They not only showed it – but also subtly complimented them on their skills, even though they weren’t entirely sure all of what it entailed. It didn’t come across as obvious or as if they were trying to compliment them at all. Which leads us to our next point….

Be genuine. Not nice.

These terms are another pair that tend to become easily confused. Being genuine, is  a whole different ball game from being nice. Being nice is easy. Being nice is effortless. Being nice doesn’t take thinking, and it doesn’t take a whole lot of engagement either.

Like OMG

Being genuine is a different story however. It’s a little more proactive, a little more involved, and a little less bullshit. Being genuine means actually backing your words, having a reason why you said or did something, and not just doing it in order to keep up appearances.

Someone who’s nice could engage you as if they’re really paying attention. They could easily state, “oh absolutely, I’d love to know more about what it is you do as a fitness consultant. I myself thought about getting back into tennis!”

tennis-meme

….only to leave your business card on the side table or the kitchen counter after parting ways in conversation with you. It happened to me the first time I had a business that relied heavily on social interaction – and it stung like hell. It was insulting, rude, and I felt like it was a complete waste of time talking to them.

Someone who’s genuine is really going to want to know about YOU. Not just find out things like they’re filling out a Facebook profile only to regurgitate the information for gossip later.

24951693

That’s the difference between nice and genuine…and it’s a fine line.

There’s “humor”…and then there’s humor.

The apparent trend nowadays portrayed by the media leans more toward the theory that being a complete smartass will get you somewhere. While the shock value of that may fascinate and intrigue intially, long term, it just gets plain old.

Humor, contrary to today’s popular belief, does not have to be at the expense of others. It does not have to be created from picking apart a conversation and pulling out points that don’t make sense. Remember that dialogue I showed you earlier? Between Person 1 and Person 2?

Person 2: I don’t know – I guess you could say I really like numbers.
Person 1: Same – money and math – the only two international languages 😉
Person 2: Haha, yeah.

While the statement may seem slightly unrelated to any sort of punchline, it actually flowed quite well. It didn’t involve bringing any other person in, nor did it involve shock value or discussion of something negative. It wasn’t forced to where Person 1 was trying to “create humor out of thin air”…

That-Awkward-Moment-When-Someone-Keeps-Trying-To-Make-Jokes-That-Arent-Funny_c_110974

It stemmed from the conversation naturally, and in the most casual way possible. Sure, it’s not laugh-hysterically-funny, but it was calm, casual, and enough for a warm smile back at least with a bit of afterthought on what was just said – and on top of that, it was a true statement.

Of all the countries I’ve been to, it’s the only thing I’ve literally seen everyone be fluent in…from hand gestures to writing the numbers down (the Western Arabic numeric system is widely used in many countries).

500-yen-coin

What are some of the don’ts, you ask? Well, they can be summed up fairly easily:

  • Don’t brag/gloat – noone wants to randomly hear about your mega yacht, unless deep-sea fishing is brought up – nor do they want to hear about your newly acquired BMW unless some form of mechanics or lifestyle is mentioned – stick with topics that flow in the conversation

tumblr_lyvjzwt3gA1qf44ulo1_400

  • Don’t always focus on the negative – some people who are “experts,” focus so much on picking apart and analyzing the negative they forget to leave it at the door. While critical thinking, the occasional pessimist view, and problem solving may be good in a business setting – trying to tweak and discuss all the pitfalls could discourage conversation by dampening someone’s mood on a subject they may really enjoy talking about – and leave you wondering why conversation suddenly dries up at your every turn.
  • Be humble – making a big point that you own your own company (and then pointing out again you’re the CEO…no shit Sherlock)/are in a management position does not sound cool. It just makes you sound like an insecure, never-had-anything-significant-happen-ass. Brushing casually over your title in a nonchalant manner will actually spark more intrigue than saying it with your chest puffed out.

So you get the general idea of this whole post…while there’s LOADS….and I do mean loads more things that must be learned and practice to further your goal of being a social elite, these are just a few tasters that can make a world of difference. I may continue this in next week’s episodic musing…we’ll see.

Until then, stayed tuned…and stay classy.
