Been working nonstop, thought I’d take a little break to send you off this vid.
What have I been up to lately?
Well, been back in the trenches programming and designing a new site.
I LOVE css/html, and web design, too bad it’s not really scalable in the way I desire, so it really doesn’t make sense for me to be doing it too much.
But it’s pretty sweet with the background I gained from setting up bradbranson.com, and building a brand, there is a really nice thematic look to the entire new brand.
Gonna be sick. Anyway, let’s get to today’s video.
Don’t expect me to be posting multiple times a week regularly, but I wanted to make a quick announcement, and give all you early adopters to the new bradbranson.com a special gift.
Check the video below which explains all the details!!!
Just got back from an epic trip in Whistler, BC Canada!
Straight was crazy!!!
I was up there partying with 12 other dudes, and it was absolute mayhem. Party every night, party every DAY, and just unlimited runs on the mountain too.
Luckily I took my GoPro camera, and recorded it all.
BUT, sadly my camera fucked up on the vBlog, so I had to reshoot it in Chicago.
BUT!!! I still created an epic montage at the beginning of the vid with me cruising on the slopes.
And if you stick around until the end, you’ll see a SERIOUS bail. Haha, it was pretty bad.
Lemme get straight into the vid, and then we’ll talk some more after…
I’ve been focusing so much energy on these vids lately. After the rant vBlog, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to surpass it’s awesomeness.
I think I did it folks.
I’ve been working hard on developing an eye for color. Spending lots of time reading up on proper color grading, as well as trying to incorporate more of an overall flow to the pieces.
But before we get to the vid, a quick update on my schedule…
I’ve been a bit off the grid the last few weeks, though working hard, and gaining lots of new insights.
I went on a road trip across the US, and spending a good 60 hours with one of my good buddies, listening to audiobooks, and discoursing about all things related to life, it was a high growth period.
That said, one of the audiobooks we popped in was a great book that my friend Mike recommended, Think Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman.
I haven’t even finished it yet, but it has a lot of great ideas related to the decision making process, and how humans come to different conclusions, definitely worth checking out…
Happy Fourth of July!
I’m packing for another trip to NYC, but before I pack away the camera, I wanted to shoot off a vBlog.
I’ve been recording non-stop, and probably have about 4-5 more hours left before cataloging my entire 5 years of bootcamp curriculum.
Then off to editing all this shit up, which I actually enjoy.
Today I wanted to shoot from the hip, and continue my endeavor of becoming a better public speaker, so I decided to make a quick vid about the things I’ve learned over the last few months.
It seems there really isn’t any material out there when it comes to learning public speaking, it’s just a trial and error process until you get things right.
Here’s 4 tips that hopefully will help you out the next time you’re infront of a group, as well as their implications with game…
About a month ago, I was in a pretty weird headspace.
I wouldn’t say it was anywhere near depression, more of a low level anxiety.
I think it was some crisis about turning 30, and where I expected to be at this age.
I feel that I’ve actually surpassed anything beyond what I ever expected, but I have VERY high standards for myself.
Through the process I’ll explain below, I figured out that these standards were creating such a high level of inner “tension,” that I wasn’t able to move forward, and I’ll explain how you can accomplish ANYTHING with ease.
Wowzers, it was a long one for me.
It was a weekend of excess with some old friends for a bachelor party, including everything from strip clubs, bottle service, shooting guns, drunken golf, and SKYDIVING!
Now that I don’t really party hard anymore, it’s taken 3 days to fully recover, and I’m finally back in productivity mode.
I woke up today, after about 36 hours of sleep over the last 2 days, haha, and my mind was racing…
All sorts of weird, low consciousness types of thoughts were running through my head about how lazy I was, how I’m falling backwards by not hitting the gym enough, how I’m procrastinating way too much on getting what I need to get done.
For a few hours it was one of the lowest places I’ve been in a while.
Looking at it now, it’s funny how short it actually was, as I’m completely over it, and back on track, but I could see how in years past, something like this would last for DAYS, not an hour or two.
I’ve been in a super productive mode the last 36 hours, and wanted to pound out a blog post here quick.
But, I had no clue what to write about.
So I went to the Main Forum on RSDNation to look for inspiration…
Then I decided to go comb through some other PUA forums.
The first few threads include:
How do you open when getting proximity?
What should you do when a girl indicates interest?
Why is hugging so important ?
Haha, I’ll stop there.
Not that I haven’t been there, it’s just I’m so far removed from these types of questions.
Are any of you guys still thinking about this stuff?
If so, you aren’t reading my material very closely, as I think I’ve covered these topics, and the stacking of 9-10 more paradigms on top of those questions through out the 200+ articles I have on this blog.
What is the answer to these questions?
You. Just. Do. It.
What paradigm are these questions coming from, and why do they no longer apply?
Alright, so this is another one of those “half in jest/half shine a light on your foibles” type of posts.
I’ve always followed the 5 Friends Rule, and I’m constantly surrounded by super successful people. It definitely pushes me to reach my potential, yet at the same time, I’m always the least financially well off compared to everyone I hang out with.
Haha, I guess I have other areas of expertise to offer, but it annoys me at times. I know I’m intelligent enough to be as successful as any other dude out there, offer more value, resulting in more money, and I work my damn ass off!
Or do I?
I feel like I’m constantly busy, with never any free time, and I’m always trying to stay productive.
Hit the gym, reading books, hitting the club hard, and making sure to keep on top of all the latest instructor articles and…
Oh, hold on a second. I’m pretty sure most of you guys do that to. AND HAVE REAL JOBS.
Boom! Another busy week, increasing my workload, but also hitting the gym like a BOSS.
Last night I stayed up until 6AM watching Pumping Iron by Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s the fucking man in that movie. Totally worth checking out if you want to see someone with 100% belief, and at the top of their game.
So I had another realization over the past few days… My sense of entitlement just sky rocketed to another level!
I was out over the weekend, and you know the point in the interaction where the girl starts grabbing you, joking around?
Well, if it gets to that point, it’s DONE! Hahah. Not really, but that’s how I’ve started to feel inside.
Free flow here. I’m in the middle of an intense coding session, but wanted to make sure to get this out for Thursday.
It’s a little more raw than normal, but I don’t want to change the vibe and edit it up too much.
Look at it as a random peering into my mind. Heh.
I’ve been working for the last week or two on this here blog, tweaking headers, changing email opt ins, coding in the background…
Can you tell?!
I didn’t think so.
If there is anything I’ve noticed about success, is that it’s so granular, everything is SMALL.
This will probably end up being some epic post in a few months, but I wanted to get the basic principle down and flesh things out a bit.
I’ve been on a serious self development kick which has had me analyzing countless experiences through out my past.
One of those is my relationship with my parents.
From talking with friends and clients, I’ve realized that I’ve had a better upbringing than most. My parents loved me, supported me, and I can’t remember the last time we’ve fought or had a conflict.
But I wanted to dive deeper into my early years to see how my personality was sculpted in those formative years, and see if I could get even more juice out of life.
In the first post I explained the events leading up to me becoming aware of a bad habit that was holding me back in many areas of my life.
For me, it was alcohol, but ANY bad behavior has the ability to dramatically affect how you perceive the world, whether you have healthy or unhealthy mindsets, and your overall decision making process.
One way to transform bad habits into healthy mindsets is through a thorough process of reframing the habit.
Welcome back. We’ve been going out every night here in Rio de Janeiro for Carnaval, and I’m about to run off to the gym, but wanted to get the next installment of “The Anti Booze Revolution” out for ya…
Last week I told a little story of how I came to realize a negative behavior that was holding back my quality of life both physically and mentally.
You can find Part 1 here: Part One
For me, alcohol was the negative behavior, but I don’t want you to assume that this post is about how to stop drinking, it can help you cut out ANY bad behavior.
Today I want to explain certain ways to reframe bad behaviors and use them to INCREASE your self esteem. Then in next week’s final installment, I’ll dive deeper into Tony Robbins’ Six Human Needs, to show how any decision we make repeatedly satisfies most of these essential needs, and how by becoming aware of them, you automatically shift the power they have over you.
Again, the bolded sections are where you participate, so pay special attention to those areas.
