I know why I’m alive.
Thats a powerful sentence go read.
My purpose, my passion, my reason for existing is the pursuit of what I call Self Mastery. Its the point where ones fulfilling their highest potential, where they’ve discovered the truth of themselves and have reaped the benefits of a dedication to conscious, consistent growth in all the nuanced facets of life. Personally, self mastery is the outcome of me becoming everything I can be.
So I’ve explained why I’m alive in an idealistic, ambiguous sort of way but how does this play out in real life away from the trap of thinking perfection is possible in anything, or that total control of everything is attainable, and furthermore what the hell does it have to do with this website you’ve found yourself on called GraspingTriumph. Well Grasping Triumph besides being the most badass two word amalgamation in the human language is a demonstration of my going through the aforementioned process.
Throughout my various pages, articles, and comments as you read me discuss business, literature, metaphysics, copywriting, my experiences and more you’ll come to see the underlying pattern uniting the chaos. You’ll come to truly understand the message I’m conveying here, that Grasping Triumph is me and its purpose is identical to mine. So under the “Self Mastery” tab at the top, you’ll find all my posts about everything related to my personal growth. Experiments with mediation, lucid dreaming, nootropics, habit forming, exercise, questions of morality and lessons I’ve learned through experiences I’ll share.
Anything I’m doing thats worth writing about related to self mastery which as you know is pretty much everything will be shared under that category and its subcategories. The business tab is where you’ll find every thought, endeavour and article I have related to making money. Although its not my priority money is in essence a medium of exchange and since I can’t do everything (or even most things) alone I’ll be needing some money.
Thus far I’ve mostly made money by doing the typical hourly wage jobs at some restaurants and stores interspersed with some landscaping and sales but I’ve come to realize these methods are very inefficient and as they require a direct exchange of time for me to make any money. So I’ve decided to focus my efforts into two directions product creation like my nootropic Think Better, and copywriting which is a ton of fun to do, and done well can be incredibly lucrative. Plus it can be done mostly autonomously and if its done in exchange for a % of sales, the residual income could eventually be enough to support me. All the writing about those subjects is under “Business”. Finally theres “Writing” which is where I slot all the essays, short stories and whatever else that don’t fit under the prior two categories. Its mostly creative writing, interspersed with some thought projects, and longer works of fiction.
So there you have it, a tour through both my philosophy and my site. Assuming you’re not tired of my grandiose egoism or run on sentences then you can continue reading through any of the aforementioned categories or just take a tour through some recent stuff under the blogroll at “Home”. Or ideally if you have any questions, or want t talk about something with me you can reach me under the “Contact” header.
