Some ancient dude once said, ‘we are what we repeatedly do.’

What if you repeatedly did things that barely anyone else did?

But I don’t mean walking through the streets nude every day.

Here are some uncommon daily rituals that will set you apart in a good way:

Connect with your true self.

Whether you want to call this ‘God’ or ‘Universe’ or ‘Creative Energy,’ or whatever, few of us connect spiritually anymore.

And it’s turning us into miserable and degenerate dicks.

Most of us believe our thoughts are all there is. Not so.

There is so much more that sits beneath our egoic mind. Go there via prayer or meditation daily.

You will have an edge like a god has an edge.

Walk tall like you just fought off six ninja assassins.

I don’t give a rat’s asshole how ‘few achievements’ you believe you’ve had.

We’re all living, walking miracles.

Act like it and your brazen badassery will feed into your subsequent actions.

This will 5X your experience of life.

Check and refine your system.

What’s your system?

We all have one.

In fact, we’ve all created the perfect system for the results we are currently getting. I’m serious.

Set yourself apart by getting clear on your system and working on it daily so you get what you want. What’s a system?

A basic example is brushing your teeth daily.

You’re already doing it bro.

Write experimentally.

Putting words on a paper, whether through type or handwritten provides the ideal environment in which to exercise the mind.

Here we can write utter trash, play with new ideas, share our woes, and note new things learned or achieved.
