‘And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?’

This excerpt is from the Bible, more precisely from Matthew 7:3. Now, I’m not going to deep dive into this verse, nor am I going to pretend I know a lot about it, because I really don’t. However, what I do know about it, is that it embodies what most people are struggling with today and I suspect, for the unforeseeable future.

Namely to worry about the flaws of others without taking a look at their own first.

Someone else said something that resonated well with me. Something along the lines of how it’s so easy to give advice on something when you’re not doing it yourself.

And it’s true.

Even I have to admit to having done that in the past.

But I don’t do such things anymore and neither should you. It’s almost like the proverbial version of the 27 year old virgin dork nerd who wants to teach other guys how to get laid by talking about all the physical mechanisms that goes on inside a woman’s mind when she wants to get laid and how you should identify those mechanisms and so on. You know the whole idea. Basically how someone being boring is supposed to teach you how to be fun.

Could be beam behind his dorky nerd glasses *really* makes it hard to see, no?

Anyway, let’s move on.

’Cause there’s plenty of more stuff to talk about.

Have you ever studied how these Twatter accounts talking about masculinity and self-improvement mostly are using a generic photo or an avatar? It’s the same for a lot of dating accounts. They’re using generic stock photos of hot girls, but you don’t really know who is running the account. And why would you ever take advice from someone who doesn’t show proof of the life they’re living? I mean, that’s not to say that these accounts are wrong or anything, because a lot of the stuff they’re saying is probably right. I’m saying probably because I practice what I preach and do not follow them myself.

But most of their generic advice is probably googleable.

Ie. ‘Don’t be boring around girls’ and ‘cut out processed carbohydrates in your diet’ and some such.

There is no depth to their teachings.

No flavor. No unique touch. No controversy. No personal layer if you will.

And this is *precisely* the filter I am using to weed out the useless Time Thieves and Energy Vampires who pretend like they’re qualified to teach me anything.

Are they naught but a bland vanilla waiver plain sheet of paper white collar?

Is there no depth to their teachings?

Do they have no controversies or personal opinions? Are they not colored by their experiences and wrongdoings in life?

I’ve *yet* to find someone who meets the criteria above that actually is full of it.

I challenge *you* to prove me wrong though.

And here’s another challenge for you;

If you’d like to learn more about TEP [Time and Energy Protection] either because you are surrounded with EVs [Energy Vampires] or TT’s [Time Thieves] and you are so sick and tired of wasting your precious time on nonsense, I can recommend my…

…FREE ebook on TEP which you’ll get when you sign up for my email list. It weighs in a fat 28 pages jam packed with content that took me a lot of Time, a lot of money and a lot Energy to understand, digest and implement in my life.

Hey, I’ll let you in on a big secret right now.

It’s mostly related to being happy and smile as you keep up stockpiling all your wins and accomplishments. Especially if things get hard and you feel in doubt. Keep yourself busy but also do not forget to smile. That’s how easy everything really is.

Does that make sense?

I know it does.
