Train as if your life depends on it! (Hint: it does)

Recent events in my life have prompted me to look back and remember…

How To Train

A topic raised here recently bore on encouraging new students and getting them ready for our events. So let’s talk about how to train.

(Note: A much more complete version is within the Renegade Hypnotist Project in the Mark Talks videos.)

Make the decision to train and improve, and then commit. A wise mentor of mine once insisted that we train as though our lives depended on it. In that setting it was literal.

But here also you should be believing that EVERYTHING you are doing is a solid rehearsal for how your life will be from here on in.

No ordinary days!

Always training. You will not rise to the occasion, you will fall to the level of your training.

Clear the decks. Put YOUR purpose first in your life — ahead of job, friends, family, etc. If they value you they will support you still. If there is a conflict, put the disturbing influence in perspective / set it aside / get rid of it.

Identify your drug.

What are you doing / taking / thinking to shelter you from what is really happening, and how you really feel about it?

  • Turn off the electronics, use them sparingly.
  • No TV.
  • Drugging yourself with sugar / carbs / alcohol? Stop it!
  • Only like-minded friends? Stop it!
  • Blaming your outcomes on others or indifferent fate? Stop it!
  • Using excuses like “I Don’t have time”, “I don’t have resources”, or “Mark just doesn’t understand what my life is like”Stop it!!

Match your resources to your challenge.

Set aside 6 months living expenses. Make sure you have a clean, safe, private space. Get rid of debt. Any life element that causes you to stress is going to interfere with you self-development (which, if done correctly, will be stressful enough!).

Match your expenses to your resources.

The fastest way to write yourself a raise is to cut your expenses to the bone. Look around yourself. Do you really think you need all that stuff? Seriously? And if this means you now have boatloads of free time — more time to train!

Match your timetable to your situation.

Family / jobs / responsibilities cannot stop you, but they may impact your pace. It’s a marathon people, not a sprint! Get started!

Stay healthy

You need to stay healthy and strong, focused on your Purpose.

Eat well, sleep well, fuck as much as is possible. Fucking the RHP way will BOOST your sexual energy, not deplete it.

Serve others at every opportunity.

The “secret” of The Secret is that when you get out of your Ego and serve others, the whole world starts offering your Very Cool Things. And you get better stories!

Enter into a training Path.

It doesn’t really matter which you choose (there are many paths, but only one Path). Throw yourself into it, do what you are told until you can obtain the predicted results, then step back and self-assess. What to keep? What to discard? What to add?

Cross-train with master teachers.

Cross-train with mentors / teachers you respect. Stay humble. A “black belt” in path “A” doesn’t mean you are smarter or more competent anywhere else. Cultivate beginner’s mind, especially as you attain mastery.

You will never be “normal” again.

Realize that as you progress, as you seriously train, there is no going back. You will never be “normal” again. Friends will desert you, family will become confused / enraged, jobs will become meaningless. And yes, relationships may break up. Accept growth and move on.

And of course, why do you care what people think of you?

If you want help getting started on the path, or you’d like to have me show you the training program I’ve taught to thousands of people who wanted to go from normal to extraordinary…

Awakening Unafraid – We Invent Our Fears

We invent our fears. Or put another way, we make shit up to be afraid of, and it does serve a purpose. It’s just not serving you reaching your optimal outcomes. The problem is we spend decades practicing negative thoughts.

Below is an excerpt from part 1 of Awakening Unafraid where I explain how this mechanism of your mind works.

Trying Is Bullshit!

Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.

–YODA, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Either you karate-do “yes” or karate-do “no.”
You karate-do “guess so,” get squish just like grape. Understand?

— Mr. Miyagi, The Karate Kid

I will never ask you to try anything, because that pre-supposes the possibility of failure.
And in the world of Marknosis we do not fail. We only succeed. Trying is bullshit!
