Being successful means being a failure

Think about the first time you played a video game—
did you let failure get the best of you?

Tell me, did you give up the first time you died? Every time you fell down that cliff and or got smacked by that monster what happened? Did you drop the controller? No?  What did you do? I bet you mother f’ed the world and committed to beating that level.  You learned the controller, the level and probably even memorized the music. So why in life when we encounter failure do we give up so quickly? Why is there a disconnect between the challenge at hand and failure?

How to face your inner demons

No matter your passion, facing inner demons is a struggle we all have in common.

We have many inner demons—one most noticeably is the notion of fear. Fear is a debilitating inner demon.  It can cripple our minds and our actions.  It can create doubt, stifle confidence and prevent us from doing activities we really want to do.  It can make us second guess who we are and the person that we want to become. These demons are crippling. Sometimes these demons are so powerful that we don’t even try to face them anymore.

Help people better understand who you are

No matter how you identify yourself (multipotentialite, scanner, renaissance person, split mentality or no label at all), you will always be faced with opposition and criticism because of how your mind works.

When trying to explain to someone you function and think differently than others, do you often get these types of responses?

  • The person says nothing, but secretly just thinks you’re lazy.
  • The person says something condescending, implying that we would “all like to just do whatever we wanted every day. But some of us have to work for a living”
  • A person makes a comment about immaturity and that you need to grow up.
  • The person immediately takes offense because they think you are somehow implying you are better or smarter than they are.
  • A person may humor your belief on your mentality, but when angered or frustrated they admit they really don’t understand you.

Don’t get mad at people for this—it’s just part of how society has everyone wired. We are wired differently because we struggle with normality, but by no means does that make us better than anyone else. In fact, it’s actually the opposite.  Most of us have struggled our entire lives because of how our mind works.

Overcoming the struggle with singularity

I struggle with the concept of singularity.

“what do you want to be when you grow up?”
“what is my purpose in life?”
“is my current career all that I will accomplish in life?”

These questions make us feel mentally cursed because they were designed for singularity.  They are crafted to accept only one answer. We are supposed to be a doctor, lawyer, plumber or something with a precise specialty. The reason why we struggle with this is because we try to mold our omnidimensional minds into a conventional standard that just doesn’t fit.

Do YOU have a split mentality?

When I was younger I had every label slapped on me that you could imagine. ADD, ADHD, boredom, depression, unmotivated, loser. etc. Pick one to choose from. I struggled with everyday common tasks such as getting up and going to school or going to work. Years later I even landed myself a pretty decent job to what average society would consider successful. So… why wasn’t I happy? I felt mentally cursed.

Then one day I discovered I had a split mentality. I never realized how great my mind actually was. A split mentality means you don’t follow the norm of natural society. You require constant challenge, creative stimulation and change. You march to the beat of your own drum. If you were anything like me it’s something you’ve struggled with every single day of your life.
