12 tips to manipulate yourself to reach your goals

My tips will improve your life by changing your routine day by day

  1. Guide your thoughts using wallpapers on your screens and posters on your walls. Pick graphics that remind you of your goals and motivate you. You can even put a sign in front of places where you tend to lounge. A friend of mine has written “Don’t be lazy, get shit done!” on a paper in front of his bed, I find this idea brilliant.
  2. Make a task list every morning, or every night for the next day. Don’t write more than 3 important tasks. Lists are powerful tools.
  3. Do your grocery shopping when your belly is full. This way, it’s easier to be smart and buy what is good for your health. If you’re hungry, you’ll be more likely to buy high-calorie fatty junk-food.
  4. Before dating a potential new boyfriend/girlfriend, release the pressure once, or more times if needed. If you’re too horny, you may end up dating a bad match and then regret it after the honeymoon period ends. Releasing the pressure before a date helps having a clear mind and focusing on who the other person is.
  5. Listen to joyful/stimulating/motivating music. Avoid listening to sad music. I know there are beautiful depressing musics out there, but a routine listening of sad music will impair your life quality. Be aware that music forces a mood into your brain. You can use that to your own advantage.
  6. Be around people who give you a boost. In 5 years, chances are you’ll tend to be like the 5 persons you spend most time with. That’s why it’s a bad idea to be routinely around drug addicts, persons in debt, unhealthy people, serial complainers, depressed people, etc. You’d rather be around role models and develop their habits effortlessly.
  7. Sell your TV/radio and use the internet to choose what you watch and listen to, for instance self-growth content, practical advice, etc. There is an abondance of valuable podcasts, ebooks, conferences, tutorials, etc. online. You can even block ads on your internet browser to avoid mass programming. You don’t want to be programmed to fail like everyone else.
  8. Motivation does not last. Discipline does. And discipline leads to a productive routine. Changing is not easy, but after force yourself for a given period of transition, then good habits will become easy. I suggest you check Mel Robbins’ 5-second rule to get things done. Don’t hesitate, just do it before your brain switches to energy conservation mode and finds excuses. Count 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, stand up and do it. Simple as that. Don’t rely on external motivation. You have to find strength within yourself.
  9. Do the gratitude exercise every day. It is empowering as it will help you get rid of the victim mindset. You can learn new lessons from life every day and keep growing. You can decide to lead your own life and evolve.
  10. If you go to bed late at night and stand up late in the morning, like most people, you can decide improve your sleeping patterns. Changing is hard initially, but it’s worth it. Start setting an alarm clock at 6:00 or 7:00 a.m. and stand up when the alarm rings. Don’t stay in bed. As a consequence, you’ll be tired at the end of the day. Remember to switch off or dimmer all your lights and screens 1-2 hours before bed time, because blue lights send daylight signals to your brain and prevent you from falling asleep. I suggest you go to bed at 8:00-9:00 p.m. With better sleep patterns, you can even quit stimulants thereafter.
  11. If you want to eat less unhealthy foods, try my advice. Stuff your stomach with high-carb whole plant foods like bananas, strawberries, peaches, potatoes, sweet potatoes, wild rice, kidney beans, vegetable soup, etc. If you’re truly full, you cannot add any greasy junk-food till the next meal time. Fruits are a great healthy snack. Nuts and seeds aren’t.
  12. Tell yourself: “If I do not change my habits, my life will always stay the same.” Procrastination is the main barrier preventing you from making your dreams come true.

Becoming a better version of yourself does not involve controlling everything. This is more about picking the right direction and enjoying the journey. You will find plenty of surprises, tests, lessons and challenges when you leave your comfort zone, but this is the place where the fun happens.

Tricking yourself is a good strategy for a positive change. If people try to manipulate you, use your judgment, ask for proof and never take things too personally.

Is organic meat healthy?

Let’s check what researchers have found about the health of people who lived in very cold climates, like Inuits. These populations are known to have a meat-based diet. Sources are listed at the end of this article.

Ötzi the Iceman, found frozen in the Alps, had gallstones, hardened arteries and fatty streaks in his arteries, which is the first sign of atherosclerosis.

Researchers examining the content of his stomach worked out that his final meal consisted of venison and ibex meat.

The Westernization of their diets actually lowered their rates of heart disease. You know your diet is bad when the arrival of Twinkies improves your health.

Meat doesn’t get any more organic than that and it still caused heart disease! Even climbing mountains couldn’t protect him from heart disease. Because all meat comes with artery clogging substances like cholesterol and saturated fats.

Same goes for all Inuits who eat mostly wild caught meat and basically no fruits and vegetables. The totality of evidence from actual clinical investigations, autopsies and imaging techniques is that they have the same plague of coronary artery disease than non Inuit populations have, and actually have twice the fatal stroke rate and don’t live particularly long.

Another example from 500 years ago, an Inuit woman in her early 40’s – atherosclerosis in her aorta and coronary arteries.

Furthermore, scientists have found that organic meat contains the same amount of carcinogenic substances than conventional meat.
