Are you red-pilled?

Did you take the red pill? Or are you still stuck in society?

And I don’t mean that in any extremist way you see on the internet lately. Call me moderate but I don’t want to push my ideas to others.

Let yourself live.

That’s what I’m interested in. Is everybody allowed to do whatever they want, without bothering other people? Most of the time they’re not.

And that’s messed up.

Just like the fact that most people live in a treadmill, running every single day for their boss until they get their cheese (paycheck). But that isn’t even the thing that makes it bad.

The problem is that some people just don’t see how they’re being lived by others.

People pleasers, that’s what they are.

And they burn out.

Being Red-Pilled Isn’t The Same For Everybody

You know how all these “red-pilled” people are telling you to do A, B, or C? That’s the thing they fight against.

“Don’t be a sheep.”

And I agree with that but why would you do that?

By saying things like “If your boyfriend isn’t eating meat every day you have a girlfriend”, you’re not helping the case.

That’s just weak.

Not everybody wants the same life and lifestyle, and that’s fine. Do whatever you want.


Just like in ​this newsletter by Zaimiri​ who teaches you how to grow and monetize yourself on the internet and live the lifestyle you actually want.

What’s your purpose?

If I’d ask you now, what your purpose would be, would you have an answer?


It’s a given that most of us have it ready straight away. 90% of the people haven’t thought of that at all.

Most people live and do “what’s expected of them”.

That could be your best life. But in my case, it isn’t and I’d love to do something that I have to pursue and live towards. I can’t sit at a desk and do dumb work, I want to have an impact.

We’re living in a world where everything is possible. Thanks to the unlimited internet. We’ve got access to free knowledge and we can share ours with the entire world.

That wasn’t possible when our parents and grandparents were young. They don’t dare to dream about what’s possible besides their ‘standard life’.

Take Action

This is one of those inconvenient truths.

You’re the only one that’s able to take action, nobody’s going to do it for you. Whether that’s financial, physical, mental, or any other aspect of your life.

If you want to change (improve), do it.

No self-help book is going to change you more than your own mindset. It’s a way of thought that’s able to change.

It’s not easy, but it’s possible.

Here’s what you should do this week: write down (physical or digital) what your goals are for the next 30 days. That’s not a very big timespan, but long enough to achieve something you want.

Anything you could think of.

Once you notice these small improvements you’re getting eager to scale. Scaling your goals to become big achievements like “getting fit”, or “becoming wealthier”.

But never forget the smaller steps between.
