Innovators, Entepreneurs, Founders — Know this one thing — The only thing holding you back from doing something truly amazing, is you.

In this game called life, you don’t stand a chance, if you have not failed enough.

You don’t deserve success because You have not risked enough.

Ergo – You have not failed enough.

And therefore You shall not succeed enough…

You shall not succeed because You are simply too comfortable in your mediocrity;

Or because you choose not to try.

Or you are afraid to try anything new.

Or maybe You are too busy watching X-factor and dancing with the stars…  Maybe you are following the TV and the NBA game series or other Pro-sports religiously. Fail though is what you do best. We know Your lot. The failures who never bothered to try.

Of course it’s hard to do a start up or an honest social enterprise. We all know this, because like everything else, it’s easier to talk about learning that new language as opposed to actually learning it.

It’s difficult to learn how to code if you are a non coder. Yet everybody was born a non coder and they acquired that skill by trying and doing it.

Your programming skills are sucking and yet you don’t want to learn the latest programing language because it is too hard?

Because you think everything is too hard or too complicated so you will just “sit this one out”, or maybe you’ll, “do-it-tomorrow” and therefore fail to get started still insuring yourself against failure.
Or maybe you’ll do nothing because although you hate your job — You won’t get a new one, because it is easier to stay put and thus avoid the risk of rejection.

And here is our difference.

Am succeeding while You fail, because while you’re sitting around watching TV and failing to try, I am out there trying to fail, challenging myself, learning new things and failing as fast as possible.

Because as I fail, I learn, and then adjust my course to make sure my path is always forward. Like the process of annealing steel, I’ve been through the fire and pounded into shape. The shape of a sword with polished edges and a razor sharp blade that will cut you in half if you are not equally hardened.

I fail willingly and often. Knowingly… and lovingly. In ways big and small…

But I succeed scores of times daily too. And sadly for You it’s here where you fail.

Here are your giant blindsiding FAILURES all around as explained bellow:

You are wearing a giant fail sign on your head — because although You think you are protecting yourself from Failure — You fail in the largest way possible when you care what others think about you.

You fail because you think, you have to fit in the crowd to succeed.
You are a giant FAIL mobile, instead of a human, because you are a hipster and you believe that being different is only cool if you’re different in the same way that other people are different. So go ahead, grow a beard and be cool… Girls can do that too.

You fail because you are a judgment machine. Girls especially do that too. You are afraid to embrace your true self for fear of how the world will see you. You think that because you judge others, this means that those people must, in-turn, be judging you.

You fail because you care more about the stuff you have as opposed to the things you’ve done.

Because while you’re out spending your money on the latest electronics, gadgets, the new coloured I-phone, your new outfits, new cars, overpriced dates, lavish dinners, fancy meals or nights at the bar, I’m investing in myself and reinventing my work..

And while you try to fit in with the world I’ll make the world fit in with me, because I will recklessly abandon all insecurities and expose my true self to the world.

I will become immune to the impact of your opinion and stand naked in a crowd of ideas; comfortable in knowing that while you married the mundane I explored the exceptional.

I will walk the path less traveled and get to the peaks…

But You fail because you think you are smarter than what You really are. And thus You never developed free thinking. And even though You had Free Will. So You did what everyone else did; you studied what they studied and read what they read. And now You do what they do… Which is not much and it doesn’t say much about Your smarts either. You get the point?

You fail because you learned what you had to learn in order to pass their tests and you think that makes you smart, and because you think learning is only something people do in schools and on the job.  And you fail to even understand the loss because while you were away at college partying hardy, I was studying school & practicing by building Start Ups and Social Enterprises, to help people, built great products, and get a taste of life by serving. And truth be told — I have failed many times; because instead of learning about the world only in the classroom and in the job, I went out and learned it by synthesizing, creating, living, and starting up scores of businesses and social enterprises.

You can play with me because I know more than any piece of paper you could ever produce with your IQ scores, SAT grades, and academic achievements.  You fail to compete because smart is not what you learn, it’s how you live. And because I challenge you to find a topic that I can’t debate with you cohesively. And we win because I could pass your tests if I had to, but you couldn’t stand for a single second in the face of the tests that life has thrown me. Tests that are not graded on a bell curve or by percentages; tests that are graded by one simple stipulation:  “Survival”

Keep in mind another reason why you Fail is because You don’t understand that you need to read interesting things, or maybe because you read only the things you are required to read, and things strictly relevant to your discipline stuff, or nothing at all.

You shall fail because you think history is boring and philosophy is stupid, and you know it all if you read Wired…

You are a giant Fail because you would rather sit and play Flappy Bird, or watch “E!” or FOX news, and “MTV” and scroll down Pornhub, instead of exploring something new, instead of diving head first, into the brain of another man in an attempt to better understand the world around you.

And you fail some more because you refuse to acknowledge that all the power in the world comes from the words of those that lived before us. That anything you desire can be had by searching through the multitude of words that are available to us now more abundantly than ever before. Read some real books to get knowledge and don’t expect to get it from the stupid Youtube videos from some frat guy called TED who thinks his pals have all the knowledge locked up and delivered in 15 minute sound bites.

And maybe You fail yourself, and the world, because you are probably not reading this article carefully even though you know you should. And you cannot compete with the clear eyed ones – since these people that are already following and reading this BEB post already know these things.

And of course — I know that you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. But although you are not a horse — your lack of curiosity is killing you because you get your news from the Internet and the TV news media squad, who are just copy-cat members of the state-controlled media.

And as always your chances are nil because you are unwilling to ask this simple question… “What if it’s all a lie?”, and accept the possibility that maybe it is; that just maybe, the methods of mass media are under direct orders to keep you distracted.

So turn off the TV and junk it. And you’ll hate me for it because you call me a know-it-all but refuse to call yourself a know-nothing-at-all.

But that’s true, because I thirst for knowledge, regardless the topic, and thrive in it — while you’re busy playing WW, angry birds, Candy Crush, or Megalopolis, I am reading about string theory and quantum mechanics.

Because while you waste your time with Tosh.o I am learning how to edit video, build websites and design mobile apps.
Because if we were to go heads-up in a debate, I would crush you. I would make it a point to defeat my own argument; from every imaginable angle; in order to understand everything you might be able to use against me.

Because I would dedicate myself to understanding both sides of the argument so thoroughly that I could argue your side for you and win; even after having just handed you a defeat in the same debate.

You are a zero ready to crash and burn because you do not ask too many questions. And because you do not question authority when you need to, mainly because you don’t even bother to question yourself.

It’s a failure to live because you don’t understand the power of properly placed questioning in life, respectful disagreements and standing up for what you know to be right in the face of someone telling you otherwise. Unable to question reality; stuck in a self imposed survival strategy within a matrix-style monotony. I know that you will give me all the information I need to destroy you by letting you talk, because I study human behaviors and you ignore everyone but yourself. Because I watch how you say the things you say just as closely as I listen to what you say; and you say way too much!

Keep in mind that control comes, not from spewing your ignorance like some incurable case of logorrhea, but from properly structuring the context of your questions. Thus you fail because I study the premise of your argument and destroy it from the ground level up, before you even get a chance to establish your ideas.

And lastly you fail because you refuse to admit that you don’t even know the things you don’t know. Because there isn’t an article online that would make up for all the time you have wasted in life. Because even if I told you everything could be different tomorrow you would wait until then to begin doing anything about it. Because even when you think I’m not, I’m aware of my surroundings. Because you think that since I have not acknowledged you, it means that I have not seen you.

Because, you walk around with your head up your ass, or stuck in the sand like an ostrich, oblivious to the world around you.

My friend, you are blissfully unaware and rather ignorant of the reality that sits so close to your face that if you stuck your tongue out — you would taste it and immediately realize how delicious the truth actually is.

Come on now take a lick…



But You won’t do this because you can’t handle the Truth.

You don’t see the light, because you are facing the wall of the cave chained up in bondage of illusion.

And when someone tells you the truth about the world — You do not believe them since you can only see shadows and not the Real Life.

And thus You hate the messenger of truth and want to kill him… to hide your Failure to see.

You are afraid of the searing fire of truth because you could be burned by that fire.

Or You would take to it in so much — that you would become an instant addict — unable to pull yourself from the teat of the Truth.

Even to be able to understand your lack of understanding — it would be a great gift to You. A soul gift, but that gift has to wait..

I could of course give you that — and then you would see.

Because then you would know that the only thing holding you back from doing something truly amazing, is you.

So that gift is what you’ve got right now.

Knowledge to make you powerful and successful.

So go use it and don’t be a girl about it.

Say Thanks now,  mofo..
