The Modern Sign of Status: A Perfectly Sculptured-Mindset
The new culture in society has emerged: self-architecture.
Thanks, man for spreading a spark of hope in today´s social era.
How should we approach self-actualization: as the eagerness towards something better, or as the responsibility to be the best option available in times of chaos?
Hard question to ponder, one might reflect. Self-actualization has been developing into a new kind of culture, positive in many ways, generating a huge impact amongst people who struggle to keep their course going. Among people who find it difficult to surpass the challenges of life.
This could be the question that many of us could ask when it comes to entering the realm of this new culture: why is it for?
Is it for the pure meaning of improvement? Of progress?
Is it aligned to some higher value?
Does pain is the constant cry for victory?
We admire those who despite these questions can embrace the act of sculpturing their body, mind, and soul and making it into a never-ending process.
Day after day, night after night: they are still there. Carrying the torch.
Igniting the desire to build up something for good, something that can perdure even in the worst of trials.
That´s quite the struggle, quite the win.
But we haven´t got any answers yet. Should we see developing, self-construction, and awareness as the craving for better outcomes, or as the armor that helps us perish through each obstacle, with no satisfactions attached?
Well, in reality, we choose how we approach things, don´t we?
We choose which lies we want to hear as truths.
We choose which truths we want to hear as lies.
But here´s the catch: self-improvement is not a universal value.
It is a universal approach to living.
Self-growth is not only the anchor that will help us go through tough storms. It´s also the satisfaction of diving into new opportunities and being able to tackle challenges we had never imagined. It´s far more complex than two end routes.
And far for rewarding.
It shows us that we are capable of more.
It´s the perfect sculpture mindset that makes us thrive in a world where winning has many definitions, where happiness has lost its magic, and a world that needs a re-imagining future.
So yeah, the new definition of status, at least in this widely spreading culture, is no more materialistic… the new definition of status is the recognition of an old value: human raw meaning.
Thanks for reading the letter,
World of Words.
Reading through Alex's letter early was a privilege. I believe me and Alex (as well as many thousands of creators around the world) are waking up to the idea of sculpturing their own path. Through mindsets, hard work, and entrepreneurial collaboration.
We are currently harvesting the fruits of social media and the internet. Fruits that have been demonized by people consuming without meaning.
I believe we are seeing the birth of the Creator Economy. And those who dare to take the "different path" will be better positioned for this societal change.
The Main Character in Our Lives: Who is it?
The main character in life is the optimal Being. The person who does what he says, and does the work that is to be fulfilled.
There are three ladders needed climbing. To become your life's main character, consider your physical health, mental health, and productivity.
Look at your current life and analyze what you think can improve. Find problems to solve. You are your current best version of yourself.
But by finding problems to solve, then you can become the version 1.01 by solving that one problem.
This is how you cure most of your problems (worked magic for me) physical, mental, or work-related. Not financially satisfied?
Learn a skill valued by society, and build a system of habits to learn every day. By solving problems daily you will be surprised how good it feels and the life experiences it brings.
Not to mention that other people recognize that you always have a plan, a set of tasks never to be discussed doing. That is admirable.
After working on creating this set of habits and "must do's" you will transform into a focused person. There are two sets of people:
Focused and unfocused.
Be the focused one, stack your schedule with habits that make you a high performer. That’s how you stay sharp, in a blurry world.
Version 1.0 ⏩ Ohh, I wonder what I should do after work today...maybe watch Netflix and eat ice cream?
Version 2.0 ⏩ Read 30 minutes ‐ go to the gym for 1 hour ‐ write 2 hours ‐ eat ‐ podcast ‐ deep rest ‐ breathing - exercise ‐ 8 hours sleep ‐ repeat.
Do not try to make it perfect immediately. The fun is between V1.0 ‐ V2.0. That´s when you go deep within yourself and make the decisions that sculpt the person you opt to be.
Can we ignite a process for developing strength and sharpness? How?
How to stay sharp? How to shape your day‐to‐day confidence?
Put respect on your name.
"I am Alf Viktor, therefor I am focused on the work I have to do. And deliver the best I can"
"I am Alf Viktor, therefore I keep my house in order. Clean, organize and build"
"I am Alf Viktor, I stack small wins so that I can have undisputed confidence to the outside world and to my name."
Put some pressure on yourself to live up to your name. You can be anyone you want. Remove your limiting beliefs. Be that guy you look up to, or even better.
You are nothing without discipline. So apply some discipline not only to your workouts but to everything you do.
If you want to make this concept even more powerful, add your last name to it. Think about your legacy.
Everything you do applies to your name and reputation.
"How you do anything, is how you do everything."
