Eating Pancakes Makes Me Smarter

Eating Pancakes Makes Me Smarter

I’ve always seen the gym as my own battleground for life. This is where I forge my character. This is where I create the base of what my life is going to be.

This is the real reason why I go to the gym. The gym is my biggest teacher. I will give you a concrete example by connecting making money with going to the gym.

How do millionaires become rich? They build a system that creates money for them.

Do millionaires work for money? No. Normal people work for money. Millionaires make money work for them.

Do millionaires work hard? No. Normal people work hard. Normal people waste eight hours of their day building someone else’s dream.

What does this have to do with the gym?

Go look at my videos and pictures. I’m completely ripped and I eat more than a starving fat kid during his birthday.

I eat every single food I ever craved as a child. I stuff myself with ice cream and pizza right before going to bed.

The best part is that I keep bettering my body while I’m doing this. I never thought this was going to be possible, but here I am. This is a dream come true.

What’s the connection with making money?

I built a system to be able to do this. I wasn’t born like this. I worked hard for several years and discovered several secrets that allow me to do this right now.

This is not hard for me anymore. Normal people are the ones who truly work hard.

Dieting several times throughout your life is hard. Getting fatter and fatter throughout the years is hard.

Growing depressed because of it is hard. Noticing your spouse looking at someone sexier than you is hard.

There are no magical diets that will fix your problems in a couple of months. You have to put some work for a couple of years before reaping the rewards.

This is the same thing as making money. There are no get-rich-quick schemes that work. You have to build a system that will generate money for you.

This might take you a couple of years of incredible hard work but that’s it. You will then live a life that few people can even dream about.

I broke all the rules and achieved the impossible when it comes to eating anything I want and getting away with it.

Do you think I won’t be able to do the same with money?

Please man. This will be a piece of cake.

    Rob

    • Shots of Insight April 11, 2014, 9:36 am

      That was a fast response, I saw your comments as I uploaded the article. You barely gave me time to change the title to something more appropriate.

  • Rob McNelis April 11, 2014, 9:27 am

    You’re*…. How embarrassing. Lol

    • Shots of Insight April 11, 2014, 9:37 am

      Dude, Nickelodeon is so much better, I was never a fan of Cartoon Network, I don’t know why.

      Best of wishes for the weekend Rob.

      Cheers.

  • Wan April 11, 2014, 12:14 pm

    Man, get that dough rolling as fast as possible and teach me the system you devised! Haha.

    Anyway, I like Cartoon Network. I still remembered how the cartoons were outrageous. E.g. cow and chicken – their parents have no upper bodies.

    • Shots of Insight April 11, 2014, 2:00 pm

      Omg, I did watch Cow and Chicken.

      I forget about their parents too…

      Memories man. Thank you for that.

  • Sebastian April 11, 2014, 1:24 pm

    Is your system also covering diseases and low testosterone levels that can occur from eating industrial / junk food all day long?

    No sarcasm, honest question!

    • Shots of Insight April 11, 2014, 1:50 pm

      What do you mean?

      I will answer part of your question. If you’re referring to me, doing stuff like, eating McDonald’s ever day, then my answer would be something like…

      Have you seen all the research saying that’s bad?

      Who’s doing that research? What do they know about anything? Are they shredded as fuck? Do they have an incredible body?

      Let’s pretend that the answer to that question is yes.

      Ok… Have they ever done steroids? As in, are they all natural? Do they have a transformation where they went from being fat to being shredded?

      I doubt it.

      There are claims about what’s healthy and what’s not every single day. One day “experts” say something and the other day they say the opposite.

      All along, these “experts” are still fat as fuck. Or simply don’t meet my “credibility” criteria.

      Does that answer your question?

    • Shots of Insight April 11, 2014, 1:56 pm

      The stuff that you read about concerning, this is healthy, this is not, this is what you should, work out like this, don’t do that, etc, etc, etc…

      All the “getting ripped advice” you hear every day is the same thing as…

      You listening to an advice such as:

      - go to college
      - get a job
      - buy stocks when they’re high
      - buy houses when the market is doing great

      I’m sure you look at all that with new eyes right now… Correct?

      You don’t see it with the eyes of the majority, although the majority keep seeing this the same way.

      The majority probably think you’re insane, both of us, because of certain views we have regarding business and life.

      Well, all of this applies to dieting as well.

      I see dieting and training the way Neo sees the matrix. It’s ridiculous.

      • Sebastian April 11, 2014, 2:19 pm

        I’m not referring to any research. I was eating junk for a large part of my life. It damaged my health. I was tired all day long, I had large mood swings, couldn’t think straight, and I was depressed. All of it was gone after I changed my diet.

        • Shots of Insight April 11, 2014, 2:39 pm

          Ah I see…

          There are way too many variables involved…

          I’ll try to make this somewhat simple…

          • 2,900 calories
          • Protein: 128 – 170g
          • Fat: 46 – 91g
          • Fiber: 40 – 60g

          That is what I PERSONALLY eat every day. These varies from person to person.

          I can make pizza, pancakes, burgers, whatever fit into those numbers. I still eat other “healthier” foods around that “junk food” to make sure I get to those numbers.

          It’s impossible to reach those numbers (or extremely hard) by eating NOTHING but junk food.

          The point is that I’m always reaching those numbers. That’s how I keep bettering my body.

          I could eat chicken, fruit and salad all day and eat such a big amount that I completely go over those numbers as well…

          That would result in my body suffering.

          Junk food doesn’t damage your body. People not knowing their nutritional needs and not meeting those needs every day damages their bodies.

          The reason why you feel better now is because what you’re eating now is probably a lot closer to your needs than what it used to be when you were eating junk food.

        • Shots of Insight April 11, 2014, 3:11 pm

          Do you know the whole saying of “correlation does not imply causation”?

          This is an example.

          • Hugo April 14, 2014, 4:31 pm

            Epic response S.

            While junk food can be used to help amp up the calories quick and easily. It’s the chems and preservatives that they pack their foods with that probably makes its more troubling.

  • Mr. N April 11, 2014, 6:32 pm

    Disney Channel, I just love all the musical tv shows were they sing all day ; )

  • Henry Reese April 11, 2014, 6:42 pm

    Your articles get better and better, I love it.

    I like that you talked about building systems. I am at a stage where I am learning the importance of designing and optimizing systems…. income-generating systems, time-saving systems, exercise/nutrition systems, etc… to allow myself to achieve maximum results with minimum effort.

    I think I see it like you do…

    Wealth building is a GAME. Body building (not that I would class myself as one) is a GAME…. Life is a GAME.

    How do you win these games?

    By working smarter, not harder.

    How do you work smarter?

    By building systems, and simply focusing on optimizing them.

    Anyway man…

    You are definitely WINNING the game!

    I would say keep up the good work, but really… keep optimizing those systems, bro! I bet you have a whole heap of ‘systems’ working for you (or guiding you) behind the scenes, so one day I look forward to reading more about them!

    PS – One of my favorite systems of yours (that we get to see) is your “shot of insight” every Friday. You always deliver.

    • Shots of Insight April 12, 2014, 11:45 am

      Life is a game man, for sure.

      I at least, like to see it that way, you take shit less seriously.

      Thanks again for the support Henry, hope everything is well.

      Ps: I’ve been noticing your sales skills lately. You’re getting better and better man.

      Keep it up.

      Cheers.

  • Chelo April 12, 2014, 6:18 pm

    Loving the analogy man. Loving your insights. You have a very interesting point of view to everything you say. I love the connections with the gym.

    Bless your soul.

  • Chelo April 12, 2014, 6:19 pm

    Almost forgot!

    Nickelodeon. Rocket Power was my favorite show!

  • Michelangelo April 12, 2014, 6:40 pm

    Quit it with all the food and gym talking. What is this system that you are talking about?

    • Shots of Insight April 13, 2014, 9:54 am

      Check one of the above comments, it’s all a game of numbers, once you get it, it’s like seeing the Matrix. I can’t explain that entirely in a blog post.

      Explaining something like that would take me a book.

  • Mia April 13, 2014, 9:35 pm

    I THINK im in love with you..

    • Shots of Insight April 14, 2014, 6:12 am

      That’s cute… I’m already in love with a very special girl tho : (

  • Ludvig Sunström April 14, 2014, 10:28 am

    Like already mentioned, get that money mate! :)

    Seriously though, I agree with you. Once you reach a certain critical mass, the rules are not the same. You illustrate that quite well with your weird diet choices. And you can do it, because you already have a great body and probably digestive system as well. But those who don’t, really can’t.

    Good writing btw.

    • Shots of Insight April 14, 2014, 11:16 am

      That’s what I thought as well, until, until, I had my girlfriend do this as well.

      She has been accelerating her metabolism while eating her favorite foods.

      My best friend took part of the McDonald’s challenge as well.

      Nothing but numbers man.

  • Hugo April 14, 2014, 4:35 pm

    S, I enjoyed this post. It’s about putting effort into the system, and that system operates on its own afterawhile. It lets you ‘slip’ up and be lazy from time to time. You’ve put in the effort and you’ve got the necessary habits so that you wont go back to your fatter self.

    I can relate well to this.

    • Hugo April 14, 2014, 4:36 pm

      QOTW: Cartoon Network, it had DBZ, hehe.

      • Shots of Insight April 15, 2014, 1:44 pm

        Dragon Ball, hmm, I lied. I did watch Cartoon Network then. I did follow that show for quite a while. The last episode I had involved this pink ripped guy with like a tail on his head.

    • Shots of Insight April 15, 2014, 11:55 am

      Yep, I agree with the slip up. It has happened several times. Although, there were plenty of those while I was bettering my body as well. I guess you never escape from mistakes, you just have to keep moving forward.

  • Hugo April 15, 2014, 4:30 pm

    Must be Majin Buu.

    Now that you’ve got your system down, you can afford to slip up and bounce back instantly. Thats the beauty of hardwork. Now you can just afford to maintain your hard work with minimal effort.

  • jamie flexman April 18, 2014, 2:49 am

    I’m a firm believer that if it isn’t hard, then it isn’t worth doing – but after a while, this hard work pays off – and shit becomes easy.

    Nickelodeon -well, when it used to show Rugrats anyway.

  • maxwell ivey September 12, 2014, 12:19 pm

    Hi Sebasteon; I know you won’t but there are some people who thought less of me when i opted to have gastric surgery. what I didn’t know and what a lot of people don’t realize is that there is still a commitment to hard work involved. even with the surgery it has taken me two and a half years to get to this point. I am 6 ft 4 and 250 pounds. now, i need to find the inspiration to go further to reshape my body. I feel good for 48. I love how you are applying your experiences with fitness to the world of business. thanks for sharing. take care my friend, Max

    • Shots Of Insight September 12, 2014, 1:13 pm

      Hey Max! Thanks for the words man. Hope the business is still going well! : )
