Advancing in this modern world by living life as primitively as possible!
I have concluded that joining my local Globo Gym has actually done more harm than good. I have no actual proof but I don’t feel any better and my body comp has not improved since I joined.
Here are some reasons why I think my (and probably your) Globo Gym is harmful:
- EMF -There are TVs and electronics all over the place.
- No Natural Light- It’s an effing store front! The further you go in the darker it gets.
- Fluorescent Light- See above
- Dr. Phil, FOX News, Dr. Oz, and other garbage on TV that you can’t avoid looking at while on the treadmill. - This negative flow of information is the last thing you actually want while you are trying to improve your health.
- The People- This gym is full of unhappy, unhealthy, sick people to include the employees. Why would anyone surround themselves with this?
- It’s just gross- The locker room, the floor (where i mostly train), and the equipment
- Bad bad music- You earbuds don’t always stay in, you know.
- There is nothing natural and beautiful to look at. (T and A not included)- No trees, rocks, blue skies, animals… nothing!
- Meatheads- Nuff Said
What was I thinking giving up time at the rock climbing gym for this?
A conversation with my girl the other night, led me to the realization that 90% of my income is passive. Do you understand this? I don’t have to work!
Food, shelter, car maintenance, rock climbing gym dues, movies, and books are all accounted for in my monthly budget and I still dump over $500 month into savings. Now, I don’t make very much money at all but I have lowered my expenses to the point that I make more than enough to live.
So why do I say “pretty dang close?” Because “travel” and “land to build a house on” are not in the budget. But if I had nothing to strive for what the hell else would I do?

Guys, does your life suck? Are you making a decent living but not really getting anywhere? Are you in debt and working a job you hate? Would you like to break form the norm and live like the free man you actually are? Then let me help!
One day Solomon decided to humble Benaiah ben Yehoyada, his most trusted minister. He said to him, “Benaiah, there is a certain ring that I want you to bring to me. I wish to wear it for Sukkot which gives you six months to find it.”
"If it exists anywhere on earth, your majesty," replied Benaiah, "I will find it and bring it to you, but what makes the ring so special?"
"It has magic powers," answered the king. "If a happy man looks at it, he becomes sad, and if a sad man looks at it, he becomes happy." Solomon knew that no such ring existed in the world, but he wished to give his minister a little taste of humility.
Spring passed and then summer, and still Benaiah had no idea where he could find the ring. On the night before Sukkot, he decided to take a walk in one of the poorest quarters of Jerusalem. He passed by a merchant who had begun to set out the day’s wares on a shabby carpet. “Have you by any chance heard of a magic ring that makes the happy wearer forget his joy and the broken-hearted wearer forget his sorrows?” asked Benaiah.
He watched the grandfather take a plain gold ring from his carpet and engrave something on it. When Benaiah read the words on the ring, his face broke out in a wide smile.
That night the entire city welcomed in the holiday of Sukkot with great festivity. “Well, my friend,” said Solomon, “have you found what I sent you after?” All the ministers laughed and Solomon himself smiled.
To everyone’s surprise, Benaiah held up a small gold ring and declared, “Here it is, your majesty!” As soon as Solomon read the inscription, the smile vanished from his face. The jeweler had written three Hebrew letters on the gold band: _gimel, zayin, yud_, which began the words “_Gam zeh ya’avor_” — “This too shall pass.”
At that moment Solomon realized that all his wisdom and fabulous wealth and tremendous power were but fleeting things, for one day he would be nothing but dust.
Whether you are on top of the world or at the bottom of the ocean, just remember, it’s temporary.
Your body will accomplish the most amazing, unexplainable things when you let it do what it’s designed to do.
