Quite the opposite.
It’s a counterculture.
Before I’m gonna explain…
Let me introduce myself: My name is Alexander Graves. I’m running the successful blog SELFCONQUERING.COM.
Before I started it, my soul has been captured by 9-5 slavery as well. Living life like 99% of people around me:
Finishing school, going to university, getting a “highly paid job”, marrying at 30, buying a house, putting money into a savings account, leasing a car…
And then surviving until death knocks on the door.
Of course, I got the same results like the majority of people following this blueprint to slavery.
Feelings of anger, resentment and missing out:
“Is this ALL there is?”
Luckily it’s not. I managed to leave my comfort zone, overcome my limiting beliefs and learned to let fear GUIDE me rather than restrict me.
What gave me the ability to choose my path, find my purpose and ACT ON IT mercilessly.
Removing any obstacle.
Now I’m running a successful business. Living life on my own terms.
How did I do it?
By harnessing my dark side.
I didn’t even know that I had it. But every man has it.
And every man who’s been extraordinarily successful in his area knows one thing:
It’s his dark side fueling his inherent drive to become better and better and better. Achieving greatness.
C.G. Jung called it “The Shadow”. For Elon Musk it’s the “First Principle”:
Boiling things down to the most fundamental truths and then reasoning up from there.
This is why I base my teachings in REALITY.
High achieving athletes like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant or Cristiano Ronaldo actually admitted that it's their dark side that is responsible for their extraordinary achievements.
