Plant Yourself Like a Tree and Don't Move - RAMMFIT

Navigating without a map has never been easy. I'm a self taught, self made winner. Self taught because I didn't have mentors growing up and self made because my life is a result of the way I have thought at any particular point in time. I am a result of my own actions and no one is to blame. I am a winner because I never lose. I chose to find a lesson in everything that happens, good and bad and therefore, I always win.

.

I've had just as much chaos in my life as the next person. Relationship breakdowns and break ups, losing friends for various reasons, situations and events that were outside of my control that made me angry. I'm no different to you in that regard but the one thing that completely changed me as a man was bankruptcy. It made me who I am today and was the best life lesson I ever learned. Let me tell you why.

.

Anyone who has ever experienced bankruptcy will tell you it's not a nice feeling. People look at you differently like you're riddled with some kind of disease. Regardless of the circumstances that lead to it, you are trash in the eyes of society. I thought that was the best thing that ever happened to me. I chose to look at things in a different light and win. I immediately lost a couple of people masquerading as friends. They literally stopped talking to me because of my status in society. That eliminated the dead wood around me, the trash took itself out so to speak. One less job for me to do.  

 

I couldn't apply for loans and couldn't earn over a certain amount each year or I'd be penalized. That still didn't stop me saving money and hiding money away. I found a way forward, I even bought a brand new car. I was living the dream but I was a bankrupt. Why? Because I centered myself. I knew the truth, I knew who I was and where I wanted to be so I planted myself like a tree and didn't move. I weathered the storm so to speak and did my time. I came up with a plan, stuck to it, bent the rules here and there, pictured myself living my ideal life and focused on that, not where I was, what was happening to me or the dead shit naysayers that I left behind. I focused on me and my future.

 

.

That lead me to know how to deal with any type of chaos that was happening around me and to this day, it helps me live a peaceful life. I am at peace because I have planted myself like a tree. My truth is firmly planted. I am in the eye of the storm and it doesn't matter what chaos is around me, I choose to stay calm in the middle. I am in the well. That's why it's called well-being, choose to be in the well. I won't lie. I still feel emotions and some days I let it get to me, but I am very aware of that. I know how to control myself when I need to. The point I am making is this.

.

The same goes for almost any situation. You may find yourself going against the mob/ herd mentality. You may find yourself being the only one who is on the side of truth and justice. You may find yourself being an outlaw or an outcast and feel like you're in no man's land like I was but know this. If you know you are right, own that shit. Plant yourself like a tree and don't fucking move, even when you're mocked and ridiculed by the mob. Stand your ground, hold the line, live with integrity every day even when under immense pressure and a lesser man would bend and break. 

.

It doesn't matter what life throws at you, you can always choose to remain in the centre, in the eye of the storm with the clouds swirling around you. Planted firmly on the ground, like a tree trunk, while the branches and leaves are in the midst of the chaos ( wind ). There will always be situations and events that test you in every way possible, that's life. Family, friends and people you've never met before in your life will test your patience and your depth of character. How you respond is something you have complete control over. Choose to find the lesson because there are many. Choose to learn from it and move on. Choose to make a plan for building the life you truly desire and focus on that and nothing else until you get there. If you can dream of it you can make it happen and you can make it happen with a plan, persistence, a burning desire to achieve what ever it is you want to achieve and the ability to push on even in the face of overwhelming odds. 

.

It doesn't matter what happened to you, you can always rise. Stay centred, stay as calm as possible letting the chaos do it's thing around you. It won't last and you'll come through it a stronger, more resilient man as a result.

.

Lock and load. Keep winning men.
