A @BowTiedBull thread ๐Ÿ‘‡
Make no mistake youโ€™ve been selling since you were 16-17 years old

You sold yourself to a top tier school in order to be given the chance at a good education in the first place
Yes you need to have the credentials (high grades, top marks on standardized testing) but as soon as you wrote those essaysโ€ฆ You started selling

Your marks and grades are your marketing tools, a product demonstration so to speak. The essay is the presentation

1. FAITH

A key element to giving yourself unbreakable confidence is Faith

Retweet, then Read
Most guys, girls included, have many โ€œfriendszszsโ€œ

These people are holding you back

They are dragging you down

Youโ€™re being suffocated as you stand in your comfort zone unable to venture out alone

Each day youโ€™re dying because stagnation is death
Your friends are your worst enemies

It is never what we donโ€™t know that gets us in trouble it is always what we believe to be true that isnโ€™t so

So ask yourself

Are your friends worth your time?

How to think about Cold Hard Cash

A @BowTiedBull 10-Point thread ๐Ÿ‘‡
1) CASH BUYS TIME

You can use cash to buy yourself time. It can be as simple as a convenient store and parking to as impactful as elongating your life
If you meet anyone who disagrees that cash does not buy time, you can be certain they have never seen a loved one die in a hospital due to lack of top tier medical treatment

Retweet before Reading!
You look around at your peers and they are all taking the wrong drugs getting no where in life

Youโ€™re only 17

โ€œIโ€™m going to fix my life.โ€ You mean it

You tell your friends โ€œIโ€™m going to gain 10 pounds of raw muscle this year and lose my bellyโ€.

Your friends laugh
Its been a year

You look in the mirror, you benched 175 this year, you got down to 10% body fat

You walk on the beach one day in the summer and you notice that even these older broads are checking you out

YOU GOT A LITTLE BIT MORE CONFIDENCE.

1/ WEIGHT LIFTING

Years ago when lifting at the gym, angry aggressive and downright mean songs would blast from our earphones

Now?

Weightlifting is done while listening to incredibly upbeat and happy music

Why?
Weightlifting with angry music blasting is good, but imagine lifting with positive vibes flowing the entire time

Now your mind and your body are associating weightlifting with a positive connotation

OUR LIFE PHILOSOPHY

Constantly updated items, but these big items remain the same

A @BowTiedBull Thread ๐Ÿ‘‡
1/ "HARD WORK" FIRST

We this phrase in quotes because Hard Work is overrated

People believe this means โ€œlong hoursโ€

To us hard work means solving a difficult problem

This is real work because hard work can include digging a ditch with a spoon
Just because it is hard to do does not mean it is an efficient use of your time

At age 12-24 or so, your life should be full of hard *problem solving* work

This focuses all of your energy on something that will result in the highest ROI

DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO DOING THE OPPOSITE (Part 3/3)

๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿฆ„ ADVANCED EXAMPLES ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿฆ„

A @BowTiedBull value-bomb Thread ๐Ÿ‘‡
1) WHO YOU ARE DETERMINES YOUR NET WORTH

Don't compare yourself to others. Focus only on improving yourself and your situation

If you have more information on topics X, Y and Z... Then naturally youโ€™re going to move up the food chain
Similarly, if your contact list from year 1 is not the same as year 2...
You did something

Notice. Your network will expand in proportion to how valuable you are as a person

Definitive Guide To DOING The OPPOSITE (part 2/3)

๐Ÿฆ‹ ๐Ÿฆ‹ INTERMEDIATE EXAMPLES ๐Ÿฆ‹ ๐Ÿฆ‹

Thread by Sage @BowTiedBull ๐Ÿ‘‡
1. IMPRESS ONLY THOSE WHO MATTER

Most people try to please everyone

That is a recipe for disaster because most people are not worth impressing in the first place

Before u bother trying to build a relationship, do some basic background work and find out if they are worth it
2. PRUNE YOUR CONTACTS

Part of the annual process of elimination is deleting useless contacts from your phone

This is done to prevent unnecessary emotional attachment to old friends

1) TIP THE WAITER BEFORE SERVICE

If youโ€™re new in town and want to find a good date venue then you should try a few restaurants... Solo
Tip 40% before u even start eating and joke with the waiter that u are making sure he doesnโ€™t blow u up when u bring dates in next time

He wonโ€™t know if u're joking about this or if u're using self-deprecating humor

U'll show up with a date next time of course

๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–• MOTIVATION IS FOR THE WEAK! ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•

Learn the 8-step process to rid yourself of the need for motivation

A @BowTiedBull slap-in-the-face Wisdom Thread ๐Ÿ‘‡
The need for motivation is for the unsuccessful

If you know someone who needs to be lifted up *emotionally* to achieve something... He never wanted it in the first place

Heโ€™s simply someone who wishes upon a star for the world to give him something he never deserved
Even worse? He thinks the emotional pump up is good for him

The type of person who gets amped up by written words in a text book or a motivational video, will scour the internet far and wide looking for a solution to his problems

It will never come

MORNING ROUTINES are great and all, but do you think there's just "One Ideal" routine for your whole life?

This thread can change your life right now

How? By incepting in your mind this idea that you CAN and MUST change your routines depending on your SPECIFIC GOALS

Read on ๐Ÿ‘‡
People usually adopt their routines (if any) from their role-models, either consciously or subconsciously

And then they feel bad if they are unable to do the same for extended periods of time

Even if they did, they wonder why their life is not as awesome as their role-models

If you are into fitness and follow news around that world, then you'll see the influencers workout first thing in the morning (mostly)

A @BowTiedBull Wisdom Thread ๐Ÿ‘‡
1) GET THE A- NOT THE A+ UNLESS YOU OWN EQUITY

There is no reason to go above and beyond unless the results are going to accrue to you

This is seen most in the work environment

Trying to be the #1 person is unlikely a good use of time
Using Wall Street as an example, if youโ€™re in the โ€œtop bucketโ€ youโ€™re going to make roughly the same as the #1 ranked person in your class

Maybe youโ€™re off by a few percentage points

โ‡๏ธ NOT TAKING NUTRITION SERIOUSLY

When youโ€™re young, you can consume practically anything

The most classic items are cheap carbs:
pizza, ramen noodles, lots of rice, candy bars, fast food etc..
Your body is able to consume these items and see no major impact (when youโ€™re young)

This leads to the belief that food is just a way to get rid of the โ€œhungerโ€ feeling

Completely wrong

A Story in a Thread ๐Ÿ‘‡

(and its lessons in the next thread)
Youโ€™re dropped into the middle of a jungle. No contacts. No resources

The immediate reaction is to find a source of water to survive

You quickly take to a perch near a river and realize you need food as well
You observe the wild life taking notes and quickly devour anything edible in sight based on your observations. You may live another day

A few days pass and you catch wind of edible fish in the river. You donโ€™t know how to fish.

Always Notice How You Were Sold

(aka the Easiest Way To Learn Persuasion)

A Thread on understanding how Sales is related to Emotions ๐Ÿ‘‡
>> Did you just 'Like' a Tweet?

Why?

โ€ข Was it the message?
โ€ข Or the way it was presented (structure+language)?
โ€ข Was it because u know the author?
โ€ข Or did it confirm any of your existing bias?
>> Did you buy something instantly?

Pause to think about how exactly u were persuaded to buy

โ€ข Did they evoke FOMO by saying "low price today only"?
โ€ข Did it come from a person you regard highly?
โ€ข Did some recent new belief made u buy? ("spend money to earn money!")
