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.

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

Just a little mid-week inspiration. The strength of willpower isn’t static, or fixed, but can change or develop with time or experiences…how it does so, is up to you.

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.

Musings Episode 66: Introspection…

So apparently, this is my 200th post.

WOO.

Life has been very interesting, over the past month or so. In going through a bit of writer’s burnout, though it has disrupted my work flow, it’s also given me time to really just sit back and think on a few things. Think on nothing, but think on everything. That sort of grey area where you have everything and nothing figured out at the same time.

At the moment, I’m more of the latter than the former.

At the moment, I’m more wrapped up in avoiding stress as much as possible and finding everything and anything that’s constructive to keep me in a good mood.

Sometimes it’s a bit of a task – but really, times like these are moments when you can actually grade yourself on how well you cope with life.

Eventually, you just get to a point where you’re fucking tired.

Tired of stressing out, tired of focusing on the negative, tired of concerning yourself with solutions…tired of worrying, tired of having highs and lows – just, tired.

I’ve been told before by many I have a way with words – something I pride myself in.

I enjoy helping people find solutions and apparently judging by past experience aren’t too shabby at giving someone a pep talk to make them feel better.

….but what happens when the motivator needs motivation?

What happens when the person who talks everyone else up needs a pep talk themselves?

I’m slowly starting to acknowledge not all the time do I actually take the time to stop and sort my own wandering thoughts out, and understand that can be an unhealthy habit – probably why the writer’s burnout happened in the first place.

It’s been a while since I’ve properly just stopped everything and checked under my own mind’s hood to make sure the engine’s still in check – hence now, neglect has that “check engine” light flashing.

But once it’s all sorted out, everything will be running like new again – a person can go through these moments and think it’s the end of the world, when in fact it really is just a moment that’ll soon pass.

Kind of reminds me of the adage “this too shall pass.”

After a while you realize it – whatever’s going on – a mental block, a situation, an argument, even your own insecurities or thoughts running wild – it all comes to an end.

Eventually, you just get so tired of dwelling you really don’t give a fuck anymore.

Eventually, instead of doing what so many others are expected to do under stress, sometimes the best thing is to just laugh or chuck it in the fuck it bucket and move on.

Why?

Because at that moment, it’s the only thing that makes sense to do.

Be kind to yourself by being kind to your body and your mind – don’t stress. You’ll only make yourself sick – take some time out to really get to know you, and eventually nothing else will matter.

You’ll find yourself not worrying about outcomes or reactions, others opinions or even next week – you’ll learn to filter.

Keep focusing on sorting your own self out, focusing on what you want, and nothing else. Sort yourself out first, and you can help sort out others after.

Take a little time to listen to who matters most – you.

One more thing – I know I’ve been slack on the For The Weekenders posts – bear with me – there’s a pretty awesome one coming your way this Thursday. Promise.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 63: Time…

…..I know ironic title right? Albeit this one being up late, I wanted to share some thoughts about time.

In the past it’s always been stressed how important time is, how time is money and money is time, how time is more than just time but an investment, and so on.

But time is also a sort of one way road – or more accurately string of bridges. What do I mean? Well…read on.

Musings Episode 63: Time…

Musings Episode 63 Time, Rego's Life Musings Episode 63 Time, Musings Episode 63 Time Rego's Life, Rego's Life, life, thought, time, emotion, bridges burned, don't waste time, invest your time wisely, steve jobs quotes, time quotes, life quotes

The reason I say time is a “string” of bridges is due to the fact that every decision or action we take in life is something that takes up time – and once it’s done there’s really no looking back.

This is why you always hear those little classic quotes that encourage you to leave the “what ifs” out of your life, and are constantly reminding you that without change you’ll never grow.

Change is intrinsically linked with time – anything or anyone that changes invests a certain amount of time in doing so – it all takes time and a willingness to do so.

Scars heal over time or are forgotten.

Health is restored (or changes) over time and is improved.

Success happens over time and inevitably changes or improves lifestyle.

Every single thing you do is linked with time.

Each decision you make alters something in the future.

I wouldn’t say there’s no going back, but as far as human intelligence is concerned there’s also no reversal of time – no “turning back the clock.” Or at least humans haven’t figured out how to yet…

Hang on a minute – that last bit sounded really “definite” and realistic – let me clarify.

your time is limited steve jobs quote rego's life quotes time quotes, Musings Episode 63 Time, Rego's Life Musings Episode 63 Time, Musings Episode 63 Time Rego's Life, Rego's Life, life, thought, time, emotion, bridges burned, don't waste time, invest your time wisely, steve jobs quotes, time quotes, life quotes

In other words, there are decisions people make and characters people mold that can always be changed or improved, but as far as undoing certain things the change that was already done will always be there as a memory – or a lesson.

This can range from sticking together with family, changing careers, getting married, or joining a sport.

Even if we undo those said changes, as far as time is concerned they happened and are now imprinted as a memory – some forget, some always remember.

But like an arrow released from the bend of the bow, time is spent the same way – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Like a bridge burnt immediately after you’ve driven over it, there’s no getting it back.

You can rebuild the bridge.

You can reload the bow.

But the original bridge burnt or the first arrow spent can’t be taken back.

This is why throughout my life I’ve always been considerably careful about who I associate with, what actions I take, what memories I make…basically how I invest my time.

Even writing everyday for this blog and the official site is an investment of time that’s made.

when i give you my time i'm giving you a portion of my life that i will never get back so don't waste it rego's life quotes time quotes, Musings Episode 63 Time, Rego's Life Musings Episode 63 Time, Musings Episode 63 Time Rego's Life, Rego's Life, life, thought, time, emotion, bridges burned, don't waste time, invest your time wisely, steve jobs quotes, time quotes, life quotes

…it’s quite healthy to do so, being careful is. Not pessimistic – just careful. Don’t misinterpret what you just read as choosing to live in a sheltered environment – but the same way eating healthy and exercising lead to a great looking, healthy body, is the same way being in healthy environments, associating with positive (and like minded) people who have your best interest at heart, and doing what you really want to do in life, increases your positive yield on time spent.

So just remember, your time is precious – and just like how there are some stores that you can’t get a refund at after spending money, so goes the same with your time…ergo choose how you “spend” it wisely.

Just a little inspiration to kick off your week. 😉

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 56: Remember Where You Came From.

Hey all, hope everyone had a great Easter Sunday (and Monday), mine was pretty good. Anyway, I did some thinking over the weekend and thought this episodic musing should focus on something I always have kept as a sort of “mantra” throughout my life. Enjoy.

…a film where Rob Machado just kind of gets away from it all. Tries to get back to his roots. Tries to get back to what surfing was all about. Overall a really chill but powerful film – with one of the best soundtracks to date.

A lot of times so many people get caught up in the things they’re doing on an ongoing basis, and in turn quite often forget where they came from. Think about this for a second – and I know – usually telling someone to “remember where they came from” is something that’s assimilated to saying such things to a person who’s at the top, made it, etc…basically become successful.

While it’s true, when you become successful you should always remember where you came from…but let’s not forget that this can also be applied to people heading to their desired destination, goal, or purpose.

Because of the fact most people do have jobs, it can be easy to forget why you’re working that job if you have a goal for your life. Funny thing about jobs is they can get you into a rhythm, or “rut” so to speak if you’re not careful. You forget why you’re doing the job, and just end up going after the money…and feeling lost or aimless. This is where you’ve gotta find your center again.

Not that anyone can blame you – it’s a cycle. It’s called getting into a “comfort zone,” and not the healthy kind…because getting into that kind of comfort zone can make you forget what you were originally going after.

Sticking to getting what you really want though, can sometimes be a lonely road. If you want it bad enough, you’ll understand this – because nothing, and I do mean nothing can stop you from acquiring it. Not people’s criticism. Not temporary defeat. Nothing. You’ve gotta get to the point where in the words of Napoleon Hill it’s an “obsession.”

This is what I mean when I say remember where you came from. Remember where you started. Remember why you started. No matter how long ago it was, how lonely it felt, or how seemingly insignificant it may have felt at that time, never lose sight of the vision.
