Being Meek Will Get You Killed!

I don’t always get on my blog and know what to write so sometimes I just ramble about things I do or think or have learned.

I’m gonna do that today. Last night I was alone because for a week I’m in a home by myself and when I’m alone I enjoy learning and chilling.

ikon-republik-1-22.jpgI started to read a analysis of the bible and read if for a while. It was interesting because there is a passage and I don’t remember where but it’s. “The meek shall inhert the earth.”

This never set right with me. I mean there is something great about compassion but being meek is B.S in my book and I don’t believe that bowing down before anyone is a great thing. I feel like being humble is a good thing but also being strong and being able to defend yourself is needed.

Anyhow the author of this paper when back and looked up the orginal word “Meek” and how it was interpreted in Greek? I think it was Greek. There is no word for meek in the original language and the original word meant something closer to ” Those who can wield weapons but don’t always have to.”

And all I could think was Holy @%#@# That changes that entire passage of the Bible and it makes more sense now. So now I really love that passage.

“Those who have the strength to go out and fight and win but do it in a compassionate manner shall inherit the earth.”

I believe we interpret so many things in this world wrong. Those thing can get you killed or more often than not ruin your life!

Another thing I came across is this thought.

“The problem with other people as casual sexual partners is you end up treating yourself as a casual sexual partner.”

Salt-lake-city-photography-school-69And damn I get it. And I didn’t like hearing this because come one.. Casual sex is fun… and now I now I’m a little irritated because I see the point and dammit! I don’t want to life full casual encounters. I also don’t take myself casually.

So it’s time to change things up a little. I serious about life. I’m serious about my business. I want to dominate my market and I want to dominate my life. I want do a lot of bad ass things. I want to travel and I want in the best locations with the most bad ass models and if I have to change a few things them I’m doing it.

Sadly that means I’m gonna say no to a lot more people.. and girls.

slc_photographer-21Eh. I have this idea that the best thing for me is to be attractive to a lot of girls but only be with one. That’s what I want so that’s what I’ll do.

Another thing I thought it awesomely strange. I lost over 100 followers on IG in the last few days but I’ve got 4 people enrolling in the SLC Workshop in the last 4 days and I’m talking to 4 girls who are scheduling sessions so.. Eh. Again. I grateful for going niche.

Why did I choose to go into teaching nude workshops?

First of all, I enjoy it. It’s a little rebellious and that fits me. It’s something that other people want and I’m good at it.

Another reason is not every can or will do it. In business there is this idea that to create one that is successful, it should be something that not everyone can do. When everyone can do it, everyone will. This is one reason why multi marketing businesses fail a lot. It’s called entry strategy.

slc_photographer-6Not everyone can shoot or teach nudes well.

My sum up for today:

1. Don’t be meek. You will taken advantage of and end up with a crappy life.

2. A lot times in life we live by something that is interpreted and explained to us wrong.

3. It’s our personal responsability to be know when something we read or believe feels wrong and to reject it for our personal belief system.

4. Be strong and dominant. Be compassionate. Living on either side of this extreme is destructive.

5. Treating other people casually means that we treat ourselves casually.

6. The number of followers you have doesn’t matter. The quality of followers does. The same goes with friends.

I’m more than happy with all the changes in my life and I’m happy with direction I’m heading and when It comes down to everything, I know I am making good decisions and I am looking forward to a life full of amazing things! I invite you do to the same!

We don’t get though life without sacrificing something but we do get to choose what we sacrifice.

I founded a magazine, VEGA Magazine.   My magazine is full of beautiful nude women and its based around the idea of respect and soon it will include amazing articles on how to improve your life!  This last year I spent 4 months living in the desert, under the stars and cooking over a campfire that was made with two sticks and a bow. I miss the sound of the coyotes. I believe in self sufficiency and integrity. Now you know a little about who I am. I’d love to know more about you! My plan to tour the USA and teaching a workshop in every state is almost finished and I’m excited to start this big adventure! It’s almost done!
