#22 Good luck

Konstantin Starodetskii

Good luck

Good luck. Today is a perfect day for this topic because the date is November twenty-two, which is a Thanksgiving day and this is my twenty-second episode. Am I feeling lucky? Yes, I believe so.

After talking to my classmates from different cultures, I’ve noticed how superstitions differ from one country to another. It’s fascinating that for some people black color means good luck while for others it’s a sign of misfortune. Similar differences happen with other superstitions.

That triggered my brain to analyze what makes the superstitions work and what doesn’t. And I conclude that it’s not about a superstition itself, but about the meaning, we put into it. The more you believe in it, the more likely it’s going to come true.

Thoughts are our secret power. Our brain is the mastermind behind all superstitions, as well as, everything else that happens to us in our reality.

Therefore, the reasonable strategy would be to focus only on things that bring luck, instead of freaking yourself out about some bad stuff that could happen to you because of that evil black cat that crossed your way.

Focus your mind on good luck, and it’ll come true.

#15 Today is the answer

Today is the answer

Today is the answer. Is life a game? What role do we play in it? What’s our ultimate mission? Imagine that we live a new reality every day. Take a moment to think about it. What if memories of the past events that we consider our biography reprogram every day in all human beings. It happens simultaneously, so we don’t notice the change.

We believe that we have lived through all those days, experienced various emotions, built careers, started families and relationships. The truth is we won’t know whether it’s right or not. There's no evidence to support that. What we can do is to realize that a new day is a new life and we have to use the most out of it because tomorrow we’ll live a different one.

Things you haven’t finished today won’t be the same on the next day. Today is your answer to life. Meet your friend, write that beautiful scene in your screenplay, inspire co-workers with your enthusiasm and love for the world, because tomorrow somebody else will play your role and the entire reality will be different.

Of course, that’s a theory and most likely isn’t true. However, a possibility of its existence makes you value every precious minute of your day and empowers to live in the moment, as the greatest actor, who impersonates his character completely.

Today is your answer to life.

#14 Action cures failures

Action cures failures

Action cures failures. And that’s a fact. No matter how massive your defeat. You didn’t get what you’ve wanted. That sucks, very much. There may be moments when you want to dig yourself under the ground as deep as possible. Or go into some retreat. Hold on! Make a quick analysis.

Ask yourself: ”Does this activity makes me happy? If the answer is “no”- forget about it, but if it’s a “yes,” then declare to yourself: “I’m doing it again starting now.” Push yourself a little harder and turn frustration into a dedication.

The faster you’ll make this decision the better. In other words, you tell yourself: “I refuse to suffer.” To what your mind probably responds something like: “What do you mean you’re refuse?! Are you kidding me?! I’ve already pre-planned your depression for the following year, what I’m gonna do now?” That’s the moment when you act.

When you do this first step towards attaining your goals, your mind will say: “I see... Why didn’t you tell me before?!” And now with the first action made, and your mind on your side, you set yourself up for a beautiful journey while avoiding unnecessary suffering.

As a result, you’ll be much better self then you were when you failed, and that’s golden. Now your mind and body are well-prepared to tackle the challenge. Good luck!

#13 Living on the edge

Living on the edge

Living on the edge. This is a tricky concept. Should you live like that or not? Within the last few days on my filming trip through the deserts of Arizona, Utah, and Nevada. I’ve encounter three things that made me reconsider the concept of living on the edge.

Number one, walking down the Las Vegas strip. Number two, gazing at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and number three, writing this episode in the sky while flying from McCarran airport to the Burbank one. So what is living on the edge? It’s not just running along the rim of the Grand Canyon. This is way bigger. It’s life in its absolute, purest form. It’s a constant stream of energy that drives you towards your goal.

Yes, there is a fair chance of losing and failing. But also another opportunity to discover great experiences unknown to the most of humanity. If you live in a box whether it’s a physical one or a mental prison in your mind, get out of there. That is not life. Make a change. The key here is that the flow of energy makes you happy and lasts as long as you’re trying. While failure is painful but short.

The challenge is to think of failure as a learning tool. You’ve failed not because you’re a born that way. Most likely you just didn’t give your best, or it’s not your thing at all. Be honest with yourself. Rethink your priorities Ask yourself: “Why am I doing this?” And don’t let your emotions control your actions, force your actions to cure your despondency.

If you failed, take a deep breath and sing a song about your failure making up words as you go along. The next day, start from a fresh page. It’ll save month maybes even years of time. Keep your energy flow going by embracing the power of living on the edge.

#11 Fasting

Fasting

Fasting, or in other words not eating. This is a cool new tool I’ve been playing with for a few months now. I fast, as I’m recording this episode. The benefits are remarkable.

You’re saving time and money while losing those extra pounds accumulated over the weekend. Your senses sharpen. I can smell fried chicken from miles away. Your brain goes into a survival mode and focuses on important projects, which makes it an excellent practice to rethink your life’s purpose.

Your body cleans itself from the toxins, which have been there for years. Yes, your body needs cleaning too. The hunger will definitely intervene as you fast, but it comes in waves. Survive the waves and the rest of the day won’t be that hard. I usually experience two to three waves during the day.

After a few fasting sessions, you’ll discover that your body is perfectly capable of functioning for twenty-four to forty hours without food. Here’s the way I fast. Stop eating at 10 PM on the first day, don’t eat the entire second day, and resume eating in the morning on the third day, at whatever time works best for you.

Give it a shot. If you’re fearful that your body can’t handle it, consult with your doctor first. Otherwise, have a victorious cheat day then dive into a fasting journey.
